I only played 1 game in this thing and got Ace Tanker, lol. It was on the 2nd day, so I wasn't the first person to play this thing,

Anyway, it has 20mm paper armor, and I don't even remember anything else about it. Guess I will sell it for a garage slot.

Any reasons to keep it? I already have a Tier 3 T-127 anyway.

Ace tanker is a bug, you get it for going afk as well. But I think it's fun, load HE and derp everything.

I would keep it since there is a chance they will never give it away anymore.

Unless you really have to sell it then keep it.  Over the years I've sold all my low tier give away tanks which is something I regret now.

Took one look and sold it, better to have even just 1k silver and an extra empty slot in garage for something that I actually need.

I'd rather keep it. You may regret later you don't have it. Garage is just 150g when on discount, won't get a premium tank for that amount.

Keep it, the tiny credits arent worth it and the garage slot is also not needed imho.

Only you'll know if you enjoy playing it. You can't get a lower award now you've won the ace tanker (even if that was bugged and everyone got it for pretty much just turning up) so why not play a few games and see if you feel like playing it more often. One advantage it has over your T-127 is that it's a medium, not a light, so you can train some different crew members.

You get only 1000 credits from it. I would sell it if I needed garage slots, but I have like +30 of them and don't see needing any more anytime soon, so might as well keep the tank.

It´s kinda fun, both with AP and HE rounds, and it trains Russian medium crews, of which you can never have enough. Don´t see a reason not to keep it.

Unlike before it's not a light tank. It's a medium. And if you play Russian meds, it's not a bad thing for crew training. It's basically a GrTr and BT-7A with more armor. As it has the same HE pen on a 75mm, with more effective AP and HEAT ammo. So it's not useless. Just load it with mostly HE and see those 150 to 200 damage rolls come in, and keep a few AP and HEAT rounds on the side.

 

It's far from the worst gift tank. But if you have Russian meds, it's not the worst idea to keep it around for a crew xp event etc.

Let me think. You got tank count increase and no chance for mastery. You lack garrage space. Save gold after 25k battles ?

Considering you could ace it on 1 xp due to a bug. I doubt that's it. As 90% sell their low tier gift tanks regardless.

Why would you regret it? You can rebuy it for the credit value whenever you like. Reward tanks/ Special tanks never dissapear.

When did that become a thing? Back in the day, if you got rid of these reward tanks, they were gone for good.

I've sold all of the tanks I got for free, except for the T-15. That one is not so easy to play, so at least a challenge.The rest Id didn't find worth keeping. All only with ok armor, and a crap gun, or the other way around.
