Hey guys, anyone know if WG are going to have this tank up for sale in the advent calendar this year? I've been playing the game for a few years and built up quite a collection but this one has always slipped past me. Had a go of it round my mates house and i really liked the tank's play style and look. 

 

I cant remember if they have had this tank in the advent calendar last year or a few years before but if any one knows please tell me. Also I know that the tank was removed some time ago from the store but surely they still sell it in special every now and again? (Like the E25, Tog II etc.)

 

So yeah basically i'm just hoping they are going to have it in the calendar this year so i can pick one up  :)

They probably will.  It isn't worth getting excited about tho'.

I would give it mine for free.

 

It's such an useless tank.

Those pixel tank collectors just buy them to have them sitting in the garage, so that doesn't really matter.

WG's most loved customers...

This tank is really nice. It always feels like the engine is damaged, but it is not. Every hit at the front of the hull actually does engine damage though.

 You would think that the turret makes up for the lack of mobility or hull armor... but it doesn't. I get penned in the turret a lot by tier 6 and below...

I absolutely love my Pz IV S since they buffed it. It was pretty meh before then though.

 

I use it as one of my primary credit makers since I can't stand the state of tier VIII and how it's obsoleted the majority of my existing tier VIII premium tanks.

It's still a "meh" tank. Even after the buffs. As the DPM is still terrible for a support tank. It's the same gun as the Panther M10. But on a worse platform. The buffs were not as nice to it as it was for the M10. And it only works if the target is at distance. It was not in the calendar last year iirc. But it usually appears in the end of the year sales along with other tanks removed from the tech tree. So I suspect it will appear at some point.

They have sold the B2 what? 4 times this year alone for some reason, and last time was recently to. So now there are at least 2-4 on each tier 4 game vs before when you hardly did see one.

I forgot the /s. Supposedly they sell the B2 because of "tank collectors". :P

Not played my B2 all year as there are to many of them. Lowe does all the crew training now :P Same as I've lost the lust to play my T-34-85M. Sad really, as that was given to me in a tank museum contest long before it was buffed.
