I need to get another 30d of premium time, and i am looking at several options, one of which is the FV4202 bundle here, is it worth it ?

The gist of it, is that if i get it, i would get the FV4202 for 2/3 of the regular price, which is 7300 gold, which rounds to a bit under the 2500 gold needed for 1 month.

 

I already have the t25 pilot 1, revalorise and CDC so there is at least 1 tank that has similar playstyle (but better dpm and gun handling though weaker turret).

 

If not this one, i'll probably grab the pz 2 D bundle .... it comes with a garage slot anyway.

 

PS: I don't play brittish tanks and that won't change any time soon.

I do have the comet (hate it, turret armor is unreliable) and i have 280+ boosters, something like 70-80 crew xp ones.

It's an alright tank but I can't recommend buying one, especially if you're not in it for the crew training.

No, it's not worth it, you're getting a bad DPM tank bundled with the abysmal gun handling from the CDC (and 230 alpha instead of 240 for no good reason). Also, it's not like you're need another moneymaking tank. If you want a decent 240 alpha premium tank STA-2 is probably the best amongst them.

On another note, if i buy the pz 2d bundle twice, do i get the 750 gold that the pz 2d is worth, as well as 2 hangar slots ?

 

Honestly, i am kinda done with the 240 alpha premiums after experiencing the Revalorise; T25 pilot could be better but i don't play it as often, and i hate it's low dpm, while i am going to start playing again and loving the CDC (need to train new crew).

Yep you get the gold instead, if the package says you get a garage slot, you get a garage slot.


 

Forgot to add something earlier, the mandatory (like every other tier 8 tank) "it's good at bullying the lower tiers you never meet".

Yup, that's the thing though ....

Revalorise can't escape a collapsing flank unless you snipe at range, but with good alpha and care, you can at least rack up an impressive damage; the T25 pilot at least has insane gun handling and forces you into the wolfpack playstyle, while the CDC has the speed to escape a collapsing flank.

From the stats, i think the FV4202 shines only if it manages to hold on a ridge, but that won't stop much because it's dpm is not stellar.(though good application through the standard penetration).

 

I'm not sure if they give out the gold for it at lower tiers, i certainly hope so.

 

Edit: They don't give it out.

Please note: players who purchase this package and already own the Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. D will not be compensated with Gold or Credits.

 W*****s. :(

What he said. its not a good medium. it actually sucks in every metric. the turret buff really dident do much. id take pilot1 over FV any day for the gun handling/DPM alone. FV actually has worse DPM than stated due to the fact you need to aim longer and therefor get to hit/fire less.

In the current MM, no it is not worth it. Nice tank, but playing bottom-tier b!tch simulator gets old fast

Pretty much what everyone else said.it ain't worth it.I had the fv on old account and I really didn't like it much.

The PZ2D has crazy armour and needs a lot of gold as it only has a tier 1 gun.you will lose around 20k per game so I vehemently  belive you should get it.

 

Also check the planes and ships website sometimes they have discounted gold packages.

 

I got 1 years premium at 50% discount from ships a while ago.

Fv4202 is totally worth it, my KV-2 needs more soft high tier targets to eat ;)

 

On real side, no, it's not worth it - that ultra-low dmg doesn't make it when enemy meds or heavies decide to push you.
