Hi ladies and gentlemen,

 

Currently the FV4202 is on a 29% discount costing around £24. Considering you get a T8 premium (with boosters/prem time) that may also be getting a buff Is it worth it? 

 

I may play the British Medium line so the crew training is a major bonus but is the tank noob friendly?  

 

Also does it play anything like the Caernarvon as I really enjoyed that tank. 

 

:)

I strongly suggest against giving WG more money since the release of recent premiums and balance changes.

Don't buy it unless they buff the turret up to the same level as Primo Victoria.

Don't own it but here's my opinion anyway: T8 MM is garbage at the moment and so is the tank. There were planned buffs for the tank coming next patch that could make the tank worth it if you could get over the garbage MM. These buffs have been scrapped just couple days ago though but there is still chance of them making to the live server. Tough decision but I wouldn't be risking it.

Read the forum, Tier 8 is a mess, they reverted the buffs and gold ammo & high alpha is king.

What is going on with T8 tanks now. In the past I could play T8 stock tanks without losing credits, but once hitting T9 and T10 is cost to play stock tanks. Last night I decided to play a few games in the British Cav heavy T8 and found I'm generally losing credits if having a lost game. Pretty sure in past playing Tier 8 stock tanks - lose or win they don't tend to lose you credits?

3-5-7 template which MM uses pretty much bent over the tier 8s. It means that it's much easier to be in bottom 7 players than in top 3, unless you're tier 10.

Could be they have put it up for sale now at discount price to try and get more players in the game using it to gather stats better to help them make their minds up about the buffs. Usually when a tank goes up for sale you then see lots of games for a few days with it used.

Not gonna be their guinea pig. 

Buffet turret - mildly interested. 

Current lame turret - pass.

Personally I wouldn't bother with any of the tier 8 mediums that have c.240 alpha; they're much the same and if beige was a tank, it'd be a 240-alpha tier 8 medium.

 

If you're not in any hurry, wait for the Cromwell B to come on sale; it's a better trainer (lower tiers get a higher xp bonus) and it comes with a BiA crew, which is almost worth the price in itself. Tier 6 is also much more forgiving if you're training a new 75% crew; I prefer to stick to tier 8 for credit grinding, tiers 5 and 6 for new crew training.

It's mediocre. Only reason I have it is I got it for free through missions. If it had received the buffs it would have been ok as a strong ridge fighter at least. Now it's one of the worse tier 8 premium meds.
If you really want a British premium for crew training, go Cromwell B at Christmas. If you just want any tier 8 premium, go for one of the OP ones that can live with the MM.

No tier 8 is worth the money now, the MM is a mess for them.

Thank you everyone who replied, from the gist of things it doesn't seem like a viable option considering the state of MM. 

 

I also forgot that I purchased the cromell B ( thanks for reminding me @strappstar). 

 

Looks like this will be s miss then :)

FV4202 is absolute garbage, probably the worst T8 tank in the game currently bug WG won't buff it because apparently that would make it "OP"
