We have just had the news that there will be no crucial turret armour buff, and now we get this:

Maybe the marketing crowd can explain this?

source pls (official if possible)

After 1 year of not even spending one cent/penny on WOT I actually wanted to buy it, based on the buffs.

I obviously meant the source of: "We have just had the news that there will be no crucial turret armour buff"

All its buffs were removed on the last test server because they felt it was overbuffed on first test server. I'm not sure if this means it won't be buffed or that it will be some kind of middle ground between test server first iteration and current iteration.

I guess the marketing department is not in sync with the development department. 

Removal of the buff was supposed to be brought out after the FV4202 sale.

:amazed:

the current iteration is the first one... and the second one wasn't announced yet, hence why I ask for a source... I just checked ingame and it says 240/90/90 turret armor on the testserver.

 

thx anyways for the warning, I guess I will keep on not spending any money :)

Another proof, how strongly marketing and reality correlate.

"With the good gun depression angle you are able to hide behind terrain and just show your thick turret while you dish out damage."

 

Thick turret? THICK TURRET? On FV? Soo that couldn't be more of a lie... Hellcat bounces more with its turret than this pos.

You joke but I find the Hellcat to be such an annoying little s*it to deal with at times. I have had so many shells magically fail to pen its side armour, probably because its magic tracks somehow eat them. And to think, people say the IS-3 has bullsh*t magic black hole side armour.

You do know what the word "pish" means, don't you? Perhaps not. If you meant "piss", then there're quite a number of more elegant ways to phrase your criticism.
