I'm not sure if I like the celebrate the fact that Light Tanks are nothing short of useless.

M48A5 with crew skills and vents ALONE, can take the job of the Cherrydan. Obviously there are differences, but I'm pretty sure that with the current mapset, the Patton would be a better choice for most scenarios.

 

Without the changes reverted, at least some of them, I see no point.

 

Agree.

You do tell us you will enjoy this special. I will be looking at your total - 461 ATM

Has it occured to you that she possibly plays under a different account in order to avoid trolling in in-game chat...?

 

Heck, I would...

Ah yes light tanks I remember those vehicles...

They are the tanks you only play at tier 1 to 4.

Guys, please keep in mind that we don't only set up specials and spotlights for those who already have most of the in-game vehicles & only need some rare ones. Just because you have the Type 64, that doesn't mean everyone else has it.

 

Since this thing has been in the tech-tree forever, over the years there have been masses of discounts on T6 premiums etc. it's very safe to say that everyone who wants a Type 64, already owns a Type 64 and you know this as well.

 

You had a golden opportunity to sell any number of rare light tanks but you didn't, you choose to go for the most boring readily available light tank in the game. Why?

@kandly ...any idea if there is some slight tweaking going on with the Even 90? Aiming and dispersion? Severely addicted to premiums but the current one reviewd by assorted CCs doesnt seem very fun to play :(

 

Try a PM to Gepard_PH, quoted underneath. He knew about the T92 changes. I've played mostly my T7/T8 LTs, and wouldn't be opposed to another competitive LT. 

 

My guess would be that the T92 showcased exactly how well apparently very weak tanks (with a 'bug engine' to boot) sell - as you know its true potential lies in the hidden stats. For the EVEN I'd expect a less potent 13 90, not a high-camo AMX 12t at T8.

It would make a lot of sense to buff the EVEN before introducing it into what I would guess is one of the more relevant markets, being French and all. Probably to a level where it would at least have some kind of redeeming feature.

​Oh, mighty saviour of T92, hear our calls! May the EVEN be competitive and prosper!

Cobra 6

 

​Judging from the tank curves, the 13 57GF and Type 62 are both rather overperforming - though I don't exactly get it in the Type 62's case. It's a WZ-131 that trades mobility for higher DPM and 20m extra viewrange - hardly broken beyond existing players knowing exactly what to do with it, and the viewrange being what should be expected from a T7 LT.

 

Actually, how it performs with veteran players might be sort of the reason too. They're not eager to sell 'rare' lights that only few people like to play, but looks overpowered when you get smacked by them. It's also worth noting how the M 41 90 GF/Blackdog is barely overperforming in comparison ...I'd guess that the impact of a T7 LT is potentially much greater than a T8 LT due to matchmaking. The GF is arguably better than other T8 LTs unless you strictly prefer passive scouting.

 

Wouldn't be a bad idea to not leave us guessing, though. An honest policy of outright stating that selling certain tanks is not planned wouldn't be a terrible idea. Else there'd be more #walletclosed...

 

(And, once again, I'll remind you that the Type 62's gun can be extremely potato. Shell velocity is worse than the Blackdog. Not everyone's cup of tea.)

The struggle to actually use coupons.

So I have a one time 10% off coupon I can spend on anything over 30 Euros.

except Its not applicable for.

Gold

Special Offers

Discounted Items

Limited Time offers

 

Way to go not making it too restrictive.

 

I can buy nothing on the featured list except perhaps the Chinese premium TD as it does not actually have an expiry date

Vehicles 112,  T34-3, and the Chinese TD "the rest are under 30 euro s or I already own them"

Premium time 360 or 180 days.

That's it I can save 3 Euros and my available choice is one of 3 tanks or a lot of premium time.

 

I would actually have bought gold but it was not possible.

Need something amazing to come into the premium store in the next 24 hours.

The game launcher shows special offer for 360 days too, not just 180 days. Further proof that somebody is very lazy.

Remember Alert

 

If WG try to sell the ELC Even 90.

 

It is the worst tier VIII premium tank ever put on sale;

 

proof from QB below (or just read the stats for it yourself)

Sorry for off-topic.

Yesterday I re-bought ELC....

And it's a crap if You compare it to M7.

It must have 250-300hp engine at least.

ELC stops not only when it reaches any tree, but even when it hits a wooden fence in Ensk.... :(

I do not talk about any other destroyable objekts, because they are not destroyable at all when You play with ELC....

It's awful.

Preaching to the converted here one of the worst decisions they have made though I see their problem.

They should have moved the ELC up a tier mostly unchanged, but then needed to add a new tier 5.

Maybe they just could not come up with one but they did nerf the heck out of a very interesting tank.

The very least they could do it give it back the engine it had historically its the specific power that's killing it.

I'm refusing to re-sub for a year until they offer at least 15% discount.

I tried it a couple of matches on my brothers account when he was visiting (he has one) and I instantly fell in love again because it's basically the old WZ-131 which I loved.

Besides, if we are talking about LT's.....

Today I got "M" only for 2,7k damage and 1,5k spotting with WZ-131 and I remembered that I did LT-15-4 with WZ-131 in..... 9.17..... :(

Now with 3/5/7 even being on the last row with WZ-131 You can't do that...

You must take at least tier 9 scout for top LT's missions now.

And it's so with HT's, TD's, MT's and even ;) SPG's missions.

 

I almost adapted with 3/5/7 in a Year, but I still think there are too little highest tier tanks in this template, and it is the main reason of turbo battles.

And I hate this template because You must take 1-2 tiers higher tanks for the same missions than it was in 9.17 and earlier.

 

Oh, and I did MT-15-3 with.... Cromwell B in 9.17 too.

I daubt if it's possible now.

I wouldn't say it won't happen again just because we haven't seen it lately. I'll let the team know that this is something you want to see again. :)

What did they said about the return of the 50% discount on premiums II-V from 2016??

 

- We want newbies to buy high tier premiums instead;
- We will wait for the rebalance of the low tiers;
- We have to see if people end up buying them more at full price;
- We don't want veterans pounding even more the new horde of newbies;
- We want them to spend gold in other features;
- We don't want to say that it won't happen again.

 

I always thought that the 50% discount on premiums II-V was a good special for WG!? It used to appear on specials at least 3 or 4 times a year.

I'm just curious to understand this new strategy.

 

Note: I will wait indefinitely for this discount (because I really don't need these tanks, I'll only play them for a few games), and at least I've bought the Excelsior last week at 50% off. I'll keep waiting for the T2 Light Tank, the Pz.Kpfw. T 15, and the Pz.Kpfw. S35 739 (f), without buying more gold for the full price (until I know that it won't happen again, of course).

Thanks in advance Kandly, for the attention.:honoring:
