What thick turret are you BSing us about? There is nothing it meets that it can't pen it, even when hull down.

Primo Victoria is the same tank with much better turret and better stats in any way.

Kind of funny, this sale was planned back when WG EU still only knew that they were going to buff the turret armour and everything else, hoping to cash in on the craze of people getting excited for a very powerful medium tank.

 

Shame it was announced two days ago that these buffs are effectively cancelled and this tank will remain mediocre and absolutely not worth the money :teethhappy:

 

Would have been smarter to cancel this sale and put up the new Tier VII of the Week: The Type62!

 

Cobra 6

"support vehicle" is a nice way of saying it is absolute crap.

Anyone who considers even buying it should wait until the next patch to see if it is going to actually recieve the buffs that were originally promised for that patch (since WG decided to revert them on the testserver for some reason) before you are going to waste your money on this sorry excuse of a turd on tracks.

Oh, thanks for the info. I really wanted this tank with stronger turret (like swedish one has) and with better mobility, but it seems I won't be getting it. Ty, you saved me some money :)

 

edit: just checked stats of P Victoria, and that tank is so much better in every way that buying this "special" is seriously not worth the money - if they aren't going to buff it. Vicky has better armor, mobility, view range, reload time, a bit more health...

You revert the buffs and try sell this off? you banking on people not reading the part where you BUTCHERED IT shortly after the buffs?

 

Edit: LOL long range support vehicle, not with that aimtime.

 

Edit2: gotta make this even better.

 

"This week we have a formidable British support vehicle on offer for you. The FV4202 features the accurate 20-pounder gun capable of punching through most of the armour it meets in battle. With the good gun depression angle you are able to hide behind terrain and just show your thick turret while you dish out damage."

 

1. LOL FORMIDABLE! to what? the grass it crushes beneath its tracks? couldent scare a tier 5!.

2. Accurate 20 pounder? that is true! but you forget the god awefull aimtime.

3. Punch threw MOST armor you meet? for how bad that platform is, it should do a little more than punch MOST. but first it has to HIT it.

4. THICC TURRET?! AHAHAHAHAAAA i went threw that cheese turret on the move in most of my tier 6 tanks. "thick turret" please WG, dont lie to your customers.

5. Dish out damage? oooh scary 230 alpha with DPM that would make a tier 6 laugh. stop embarrassing yourself WG.

This tank is crap  and no more buff now  from what I heard.( and what a buff - litle speed and better turet is to much OP-- so no more).RIP FV4202 we have Victoria which is much better (even with FV buffs) and is not Op at all.

 

I wonder where is the cacth here . :_

Buy the FV4202 and experience what it's like camping behind your SPGs cause you can't do anything else in it!

This is what you would have gotten:

 

FV4202 – armor reverted to 9.20 values. Statistics have shown that the tank was OP and now it was decided to test the tank without the changes. Tests will show which version will land on the second CT.

Details:

  • Lowered engine power from 650 to 510 HP
  • Power-to-weight ratio fell from 15,63 to 12,26 HP/t
  • Armor decreased:
    • Front hull armor from 76.2 to 50.8 mm
    • Front turret armor from 240 to 170 mm

Somehow they decided that Primo Victoria is ok, but the improved FV4202 would become FV42OP

HaHaha what muppets, got their specials and announcements in the wrong order.

 

Remember next time WG sell the tank then cancel the required buffs to make it almost as good as the other Tier 8 prems, not the other way round!

Wait, you complain about the fact that you got the information before the tank is in the shop again? Just because it would be much better for WG and so you can complain even more? You really have some problems guys.

 

Btw. it wasnt officially announced yet. Its just a 3rd party site what announced this information.

Incredible!

 

They are actually selling tank in the same time after cancelling all the necessary buffs to it!?

 

My clan was considering on purchasing this tank to a lady player among us who recently got married! Just this morning I was glad to see that we can give her a nice package with discount! I guess she'll get some flowers and candies instead :(
