...but STG Guard is supposed to come on Saturday?

And we already got plenty weekend tank offers today:

Lowe bundle, Panther/M10 bundle, KV 122 returning...

There is something fishy going on here, 

I just cannot put my finger on it.

Maybe WG have decided to delay the STG in order to buff it?

Wouldn't put it past them... or am I being too suspicious and cynical?

The first review I saw said it was being released on the 9th, others like quicky baby said the 8th, so it could just be that quickybaby was mistaken and its actually the 9th which "might" being queued for an update on the 9th IE the 10th in reality when the servers reboot with the new code


A day either way isn't exactly on a par with the Georgia guide stones lol

No, simple marketing.

 

If you flood your audience with newer and newer things in too rapid a succession they are likely to spend less.

OK, let me rephrase my point: 

if the STG is supposed to come tomorrow, 

why flood us with KV 122, Lowe and Panther/M10 bundles today? 

Too much too soon - what if some people spend money on them

today and won't have any more for the STG tomorrow?

Perhaps you miss-understand the audience.

 

Those who can only afford the STG will probably wait for it.

Those with more cash who wanted to spend some today might be tempted into the other offers and then still buy the STG tomorrow (or whenever).

Those who can only afford the STG but still buy something today as they have no willpower will buy the STG at some point in the future when they have more money.

By the way, when was the last time a new tank came on Saturday?

 

EDIT: Never mind, STG already out in RU cluster.

Does anyone really find KV-122 tempting? :sceptic:

no, I'd find a non-autoloading french heavy line or a japanese TD line tempting.

(as a video game can be)

Collectors maybe? I bought it ages ago because I wanted the tank, but I fully understood it was absolutely terrible.

That reminds me, I haven't seen our resident tank collector for some time.
