Hi guys,

I know I am just a tomato, but I have been thinking about getting me a premium tank for Xmas with the xmas bonus from work.

I am thinking about one of these, as I already have the Lion:

1) IS-6

2) T-54 proto

3) SuperPersh

4) T-34

5) Wait for some WG OP "Totally not OP" premium like Patriot or Defender to show up in Advent calendar.

 

I am currently grinding those lanes (Stalinum and American heavies/meds), as I like playing on all of those, so each one of those would serve not only as credit printer but also a crew trainer.

 

EDIT: I'm also open to another options

T34 has a solid penetration value for a tier 8 tank so you won't need to shoot a lot of gold (even if as a Dinger you really should ;) ).

My suggestion would be to wait for T26E5 for example, great armor, great moneymaker, good mobility, very good tank. IS-6 has awful penetration, T-54 Proto has small amount of shells and rather low penetration too, SuperPershing is very slow and T34 is slow too but from those 4 tanks is the best choice imho

 

...which was fixed in one of the last patches, it carries now more shells.

 

@OP: if USheavies are your thing, go for the patriot.

As already mentioned above, it is good in any area, has basically no weakness.

Also IIRC we've gotten discounts on all in-game premium tanks during Christmas, so even if you ultimately decide to go for the T34 for example, wait until the -15% discount.

Clearly voted for "something else".

 

My suggestion go for

They are billions (steampunk, strategy, zombies... epicness)

or if you are a creepy nerdy lover of insects, Empire of the Undergrowth

 

epic bonus
Slaps and Beans

 

They are all less expensive, more fun, and for a longer entertaining.

I'd say either pick up something fun low tier with a good discount, like a type-64 or Panther M-10 or wait for something good to pop up on the calendar. Hell, even a STG/Guard would probably do you a lot more favours than most of the tanks on your list. If you really want something from the tanks you listed I'd say go for the T34. It has pretty bad DPM, but at least it has the penetration to consistently damage stuff.


EDIT: Seeing your amount of games, I'd recommend just going with the Panther M-10. It's a good and fun tank, preferential matchmaking and it's 30% off at the moment.

You are still a pretty new player, so a hightier premtank is still quite a no-no. My advice would be to pick a lower tier...

Since there will not be defender in advent i would suggest to check STEAM for a great offer. I already bought 8 games + add-ons  :medal:

 

p.s. Avoid IS6 & SP at all costs. T34 is till playable. No opinion bout proto

I asked a similar question yesterday about what T8 to purchase, hopefully before Christmas, a very kind person gave me a great explanation in that perhaps T8 was not the best way forward. The poster suggested perhaps a SU122-44 or a Panther M10, think I will be getting the latter

Please wait.. All the tanks on your list are horribly powercreeped ancient shitters. Super Pershing has been buffed (pen) but is still a shitter. T54 Proto has been buffed and is now meh.

hmm it's a light with little HP, low ammo and clearly no armour. Perhaps not best to recommend to "just a tomato" as he will probably hate it.

 

OP Patriot is the best choice IMO

Have you considered the Churchill III for Russian crew training?  Not a bad little tank and doesn't cost a fortune.

You should quit your job and get a better one.

I would be ****** off if I only got enough Christmas bonus to buy a premium tank :izmena:
