It's usually a week or so, isn't it?

Release probably coincides with the WoT anniversary (common release) April 12th.

I think they're still tweaking it. QB's playing it at the moment on a press account and he said it was buffed overnight after he played it yesterday. I suspect we may see the first introduction of a Schrodinger premium tank that's both over-powered and under-powered at the same time, depending on how the player gets on with its auto-loader. :D

Probably in less than 1 week and it will be on sale for 1-4 weeks.

You won't miss out on anything.

I can see this being an absolute animal in the right hands. Currently it's single shot DPM is good. Add in the ability to fire 3 shells in sticky situations and it's looking like a great package.

Pretty much this... although same can be said from many older single shot tanks like M41 90.

 

The autoloader mechanic seems pretty interesting and it does bring new aspect to gameplay.

Watched that stream to see how it handles and as hard as i tried to "swallow" the idea of the auto reloader and QB's presentation and showmanship i failed to see the appeal. Paper medium with 240 alpha and crap DPM, combine that with tier 8 MM and low(ish) standard pen and you got yourself a nice piece of **** only for 70 euros!

 

Compare it guys to the lorr. 40T and draw your own conclusions.

Still making a profit while shooting 100% premium ammo does it for me! But that was about the only good point QB had covered by the time I quit watching. I don't know if he went on to deal with it but he seemed very intent on maximising the DPM over and above the effect of emptying the full clip and saying 'take that!'.

Gun handling is like night and day compared to the Lorraine. Faster aim time, much better dispersion and way more accurate.

 

This thing is like the TVP and the Lorraine is more like the Bat Chat. 

 

Also it can take a rammer, so if you max it out with rammer, vents, BIA and food you can get the whole clip reload down to 23s, and the single shot reload is only 6.33s, which again is not bad compared to many single shot meds. 

 

Considering they are pretty similar in speed and agility, both are paper, then you have the bigger clip, longer reload, plus worse handling and higher standard pen vs better gun handing, smaller clip, smaller reload, single shot option and faster clip speed. 

 

Hope it comes with a free BIA crew, that would be super useful for the new line. 

 

What's interesting is this tank can play single shot for a while and then finish with a flurry, so over a short period of time can get a very high DPM depending on what you need to kill so you could for example chase down a reloading Lorraine, fire your shots every 6.5s until the point he has 720 or less health and then burst the last 2 shots in 4s, so you could do 1300 damage in about 22s.

Only because streamers play the tank, that doesn't mean it's for sale yet.

Looks quite fun and would like to get my hands on it however I can't justify spending money on a tier 8 tank that will spend ~80% of the battles facing tier 10s.

Improved dispersion on hull and turret dispersion, slightly faster reload and +1° gun depression. Details.

As long as we have a MM which prio`s 3/5/7 over everything this will be just another HP filler... but as it is a premium ( with new gun mechanics ) for a new nation it will sell anyway.

It would be nice if we had a tank marathon on the new Italian premium....

Again, my guess would be that they're waiting until at least next week, it's the WGEU anniversary after all.

 

As for the tank itself, watched QB playing it. Looks interesting, but kind of powecreepy. It's better than most of the other T8 paper mediums - and has that reloader-clipazine. Biggest drawback is likely lack of flexibility, guessing you can't queue up AP/APCR/HE at will. Nothing new for an autoloader, but 24 seconds for 720 damage isn't exactly great, and unlike e.g. the Lorraine it does lack penetration.

So does the lowe with full gold only difference is that with the lowe premium pen you have close to 300 mm apcr shell in a very accurate gun so you're bound to do some damage whether you want or not :)

 

I think after you left he came to the conclusion that he can fire two if he have the target instead of firing one by one. Nothing i saw in the tank performance was really extraordinary or fascinating enough to pay real money for that gimmicky reload. I think i will be better off, and safer, with a normal autoloader.
