Early special announcement? Nice one!

 

If anyone is interested, here is my review of the VK45.03 which covers the vehicle *after* it got buffed/changed. Something all the older review do not include as they are from when the tank was first released.

 

Also, again no crew retraining discount :<

The weekend special is rather weak. You should have give us at least the tier8 at a 15% discount....

But, maybe is a good time for me to free exp the Japan Heavy up to tier5 and get the O-I Exp., now that the HT No. VI crew from the last month event reached its first skill :)

Everyone : have a nice weekend and see you on the battlefield!

Nice special for rebuying some low tier heavies that I didn't Ace, and that's about it.

YEAH... lower tiers only.. So medium tanks spotlight will be also discounts on mediums 5-7 tiers I guess.. and I wanted to buy Obj.430, 121... so not worth to rush grinding money to the next weekend..  :(

Also...what is the consensus on the KV-122? Just a up tiered KV-85 with slightly higher top speed & faster reload time?

They have announced a Heavy tank event this weekend but didn't mention details in the sneak peek : September. 

https://worldoftanks...september-2017/

 

I was hoping for some tier 9-10 discounts , but whatever , i guess I'll get some japanese heavies.

 

 

So next weekend if anyone is planning on buying mediums, except a similar thing with medium tanks.

RENAME THIS crapAS "ONLY LOW TIER HEAVY TANK SPECIAL"!!!!!! or give the full tech tree discount. Maybe you don't want to give tier 8 discount because you don't want players to play tier 8 to see that Fed up, broken MM that you don't want to fix.

It is basically the old KV-1S , but at tier 7. 

 

You can compare it with an IS.

KV-122 vs IS:

- almost the same gun handling , lower rate of fire , but better aim time

- way worst armor , but better speed
