I would like the hydro... but I am not going to pay 100 euros for it. Not worth it. :)

Got the T26E5 for a LOT less in the loot boxes, and would actually never buy it for that full price, its nothing that special, just a "HT" with a med gun.

True, its actually a little bit better than the Pershing, but not that much that it could be called a HT...https://tanks.gg/compare/pershing?t=t26e5

Agree, took me a while to realise that; was frontline brawling and dying fast! Now play it like a heavy med (support) and I do better in it. Dunno why WG classed it as a HT since its not even a good HT crew trainer...

Eh, 100 euros for a Pz. IV. G that shoots slower than the Pz. IV. H with the same gun, isn't protected against derping at all & has weaker armor, and doesn't even have any changes to the turret turn rate despite the prototype with the turret having a hydrostatically driven turret. All that for 70(110 if IV. H uses the IV. G turret) more health, speed + terrain resistance improvements(and in speed, the Pz. III/IV outdoes it), faster tank traverse(to be able to see that Pz. IV. H that is going to derp you to death), and a slight moving/traverse dispersion improvement.

 

I somewhat doubt even a premium tank collector would go to the trouble of buying a 100 euro gold package for a tank that will just sit in their garage. Even the Turan outdoes the Hydrostat, and that thing is pretty lamented itself.

And here I thought it would be a rare tank like the Pz IV S...

 

Since it is on sale on certain other servers.

At some point I bet it'll be a purchaseable scheme for the non-painted one; having two versions is a result of bad planning in regards to the new customization system. It's also kind of silly; while I knew that there was a risk of getting the non-painted one in the boxes, it's still sort of a waste to have both.

So WG when will you finally sell the Defender again? It's the only tank I will pull my wallet for and I guess many others out here.

​'Get two different tanks from the 1:56 collection and get the exclusive Hydrostat tank. '

Or they could just buy some model tanks and get hydrostat for free *cough* and that is cheaper then paying 100 bucks *cough* :)

Dunno, only the IS-2 & KV-1/KV-2 models from the 1:56 mentions two for Hydrostat, all the others don't have that mention. Their box pictures show 4 for Hydrostat(which makes the price rather equal). And funnily enough, Italieri site actually mentions: Only for first 1000 customers. Funny how Wargaming shop doesn't mention it?

 

And if it applies to all the models, even with the cheapest options you pay around 23-25 euros over the nominal value of the premium account(6 days) + the Hydrostat(2500 gold) with that deal, well 16-18 euros if you don't count shipping. Unless you consider the invite codes having some nominal value, when you basically act as a free marketer with those..and you for some odd reason play both on the PC, and Xbox at the same time.

 

Oh well, I like rare underpowered tanks so I suppose I'll see if the offer is actually valid while their January sales are still on...
