Saw tank with two guns today, appeared to be ultra rare MTLS-1G14. Is it still rare or  already sold?

I missed out on this treat* because while the website said the stamp collection ran until 12 noon CEST, it ended at 12 noon CET because WG's servers can't cope with the clocks going forward in Spring. :sceptic:

I suspect it will remain ultra rare, as everyone did notice it was crap vs the old hype or even the console version. So I suspect the T29 HE derp will dominate tier III for some time to come still.

​Or maybe the real reason as to why you missed out was because you planned to wait until the last hour, you lazy procrastinator. :P

Nah, I wasn't going to bother at all because I couldn't be arsed loading into every battle at least 30s after the countdown had finished so I've been playing a lot of Warboats since 1.0 launched. Then WG patched the client twice and I read the forum posts about defraggler, which combined with some further fiddling means I'm loading in before the countdown starts like before. I'd managed to get to about 80 stamps when I went to bed so I thought I'd cram the last few in this morning because free thing is free.

The tank is a huge bundle of missed opportunity, it should have had 5 shots per gun in the "clip", so 10 shots in total with a slightly longer reload.

 

It's blind, it's got bad DPM and it's one we can add to the long list of "bad" gift tanks.

 MTLS-1G14 is still rare

 

Hell no. Between 2-3 per side in low tier games. It could/should have been better, but good armour, decent speed, and ok gun makes it good.

Nope never. Only given out during the stamp mission now. Before that the EU population of it was 14. As in how many press accounts had it.

It has that on console. Only difference then is the worse pen. And on average with AP you get 3-4 shots in pr clip vs most targets as the pen goes in the Pz1c area even on a low roll. So it's far from OP there with 10 even.

Cheers that's that tank now ruined.  Like an earworm, that mental picture has stayed with me every time I see one now.

Not rare anymore. Confirmed. My bro has this. He got it  as campaign reward lately. and saw many of those in battles same time. So WG rewarded them out...

But then it would be just like all the other low tier fast tanks with rapid firing machine guns. Personally, and I may be alone in this but I love the MTLS. It's different and fun.

It's just a Tetrarch one tier higher.

 

The tank isn't rare anymore. Hell,it wasn't even available until this year; a tank for testers. They removed it's old iteration,which was absurdly broken,no matter how you looked at it. Tank used to shred anything that was in front of it,regardless of tier.

 

Now however,it's made available to the masses.and is a complete shadow of it's former self.

You still get those twin guns,but the autoloader mag has been reduced by 80%,DPM is abysmal therefore,it's mobility is below-average,viewrange isn't even funny - it's outright complete sh*t, gun handling is also quite bad.

 

It's pretty much a Tetrarch a tier higher,except with some armor that can bounce things when angled. Expect little-to-no bounces at Tier 4.

In summary - not worth it. There are far better Tier 3 premiums,namely the Pz.S35,the Jedi, arguably the FCM 36 (although rare),and certain others that i can't be bothered to either name or remember. 

 

The only highlight of this thing is it's pen,which actually allows it to pen anything it meets in it's tier range even frontally.

Quickybaby did an interesting vid on this tank and I will try to remember what was said.

The really rare one was given to special friends of WoT and the guns would fire like a machine gun rip other tanks to shreds really fast. This version was gun detuned and misses out in a few animations that could have made it worthwhile. Its ok I have one but its not OP or distinguished, just odd with two guns going pop - pop when you fire.

Saw a few in the first week but it wasn't as abundant in battles as other mission wins.
