How likely is it that they will put the defender on the market?

 

I know they said they wouldn't put it on the market anytime soon but WG gonna WG.

Well, you don't. the question was how likely since new ussr heavy tanks will be introduced.

 

I hope they do sell it thou.

You base that on what? As the Defender is an OP tank you can buy, thus broken in a limited way vs population. Vs a tank everyone can grind like the 257 if you like that broken side armor. As head on vs the Defender tier for tier, it's not even close. 

 

And I suspect they won't. But if the meta shifts the the speed it does. It won't take long for even the Defender to get underwhelming. You might remember the IS-3A that was full of "OP" topics when it came. It lasted 3 months before the meta did shift and it was useless. As all WG said was that they won't sell it anytime soon. And soon... might be next Xmas as this rate. As then it will be a "bad" tank if this keeps up on high tiers.

Another excellent topic here.

 

Best guess, when the Moon Base needs a luxury spa extension.

If WG thought they could get away with making every tank in the game purchasable, they would. But I guess they haven't purchased enough property in Cyprus yet for that to happen!

IMO IS-3A was mediocre from the beginning. People just jumped on the "premium IS-3 ZOMG" band wagon, and the tank got hyped by streamers aka the WoT tank sales men.

 

Defender is faster than IS-3A, has much better gun handling AND better accuracy (because reasons), has better armor and a 440 alpha boomstick. And for some reason has also better gun depression.

 it's been one year and the defender isn't out of meta. And the IS-3a is a worse IS-3, but the defender is a is-7 with the is-4 turret slightly nerfed to be able to borderline tier 8.

Please stop asking for a completely broken tank to be put back in the store.

The effect it has on not only randoms but also skirmishes/cw's is very bad for the game in the long run.

 

Try to be a bit less egoistic and think of the consequences before you ask for something.

 it's broken af for sure but maybe im being too selfish and wishful over here lol. tbh I wouldn't be surprised if they introduced another new OP tank which will somehow render the defender to somewhat less effective.

why comment on it then? surely you could use your time more wisely like improving your game play instead of commenting on another excellent topic over here.
