Fellow tankers,

 

I watched a lot of video's about the Object 252U Defender, I really want to buy it but... There is one thing and I guess you know it, its not available at this moment.

Does anyone knows when they bring that tank back to the shop?

Please let me know than ;)!

 

-Victor

Mr. Farage says that you oughta let the Caernarvon have its rare spot of glory and not talk about the Defendor.

 

Jokes aside: Probably never. I mean, "never"-never. I think that might mean "Christmas" in WG-terms.

 

(Funny how you can ready up a picture and find a suitable thread almost regardless - pretty neat if you ask me!)

If you buy the Fort Knox package this weekend,

you might get a bonus link to Defender with 10% discount.

WG said it's removed from sales. As they also thought it was to broken.

 

 

But they said the same thing about the E25.. But the E25 also had a population issue they wanted to sort out. But yet they sold it during Xmas 2 years later. So you never know.

Then again the IS-3A was considered "OP" when it came. But that meta changed fast to make it useless again with in a few patches due to new super heavies etc. In a year or two's time, the 252 might even be "bad" that they will sell it again. E25 was not tho when they sold that again.

I seem to recall in a recent Q&A Wg saying it would be sold again if players want it.

 

The current situation where it's not available any longer, but widely used in team Battles/CW and tournements for those who have them, is... simply absurd.

Hopefully never sold again, its horribly overpowered and selling more of them would break the game more (if it already wasnt broken tho)

Everyone says its op, all lies! The lowerplate is not impenetrable

The lower plate is not only stronger than on the other tanks in the tech-tree, it is also possible to hide it on most maps. Hence what you need isn't an OP tank, but an adjustment of your perception of reality.

It is a pretty easy tank to play.

I have a love and hate relationship with it. I am too aggressive, and dead... Not OP, I want a real OP tank, with Godmode

The lowerplate isnt weak, it is still better than the upper plates of many same tier heavies. The only thing the lower plate is not is "impenetrable" - unlike, you know the Defenders upper plate. That tank is OP by every measurement you can apply to it.

One of the worst decisions WG ever made... among many poor decisions.

There was a video that said they wouldn't be selling it again because it is too strong.

 

So probably Christmas

This should help you get the tank.

 

TL;DR: Unobtainable (for now).
