Hi all.

Im just wondering if anyone can share any info about the release date of the standard version of this tank. I have been waiting for a long time and most of my reward crew from personal missions have been pre-trained for this tank. But there is no chance that i´m buying a tank with a band emblem on it and especially with a lame band like that.

I really don´t like when WG starts to support bands like they do with this tank. If it was a charity event for saving rainforests, helping sick snakes or tarantulas etc. it would be fine® for me, but i´m not supporting a wannabee "metal" band like Snablaton ( see. i refuse to spell their name correctly)

It will come out most likely once Primo Victoria is pulled from shelves at the Premium Store. Also, you didn't need to specify your hatred towards Sabaton, since like 99% of population on Earth hate them (excluding me).

Because it is obviously something they do on a weekly basis. Wait, they have never done it before.

 

What a stupid reason to not purchase a pixel tank.

Yeah cus that's something they do all the time right? The only reason why they did pick that band. Is more or less, as it's the only band that regularly plays at tank museums. And since most of their audience at those consents are WOT players. Why not?`

Now that is sad. We need more bands at tank museums. And classical music orchestras as well.

Actually, the tank looks simply amazing with that custom camo. Don't like it? Don't buy it. Simple like that.

Unless WG announce something else for this weekend I don't think it really is 'simple like that'. If this tank is meant to be the 'big surprise' promised for the weekend it means a few (and it will be very few) players get something and the vast majority get nothing, zilch, nada. So it's either have a wank over a previously unheard of heavy metal band and their customised tank or forget the weekend special.

doesnt matter if it is just once.

I dont like that band and I dont like the idea of having a band logo on a tank and that is reason enough for me to not buy it.

Then don't buy it.

 

Anyone who pays £32 for a centurion is an idiot anyway.

Considering how cheap it was, I'm guessing you supported War Child when you had the chance? In which tanks did you apply the emblems?

Yeah? Well, I got one, so I guess to you that makes me an idiot.

Yup.

 

It is identical to the buffed version of the Centurion which is coming in 9.20....complete waste of money.

Next time, before getting anything, I'll ask your opinion first and end up doing wtf I want anyway.

I'm sure you weep every time that, by accident, of course, you click "Battle!" when you're dusting off the Löwe, the Panther 8,8, the Skorpion G, the IS-6, the T-54 mod. 1, the M46 KR, the AMX CDC, the M4A1 Rev. or the STA-2. And of course you didn't buy any of those, you salvaged each of them from a scrapyard and used good ol' elbow grease to get them back in shape...

M46 KR was free (marathon)

 

Mod.1 was a birthday gift

 

IS-6 was a fathers day gift

 

IS-6 was traded in for the Lowe.

 

STA-2 was gifted by a friend

 

The rest I purchased. However none of them have variants already in the game which are identical to the tank I purchased. They are unique tanks.

There is no big surprise promised for this weekend. The big surprise is scheduled for next weekend (Gamescon).
