As the topic states, when will the RAAC be available on the EU region - any info on that? It's already on the NA and RU server!

It will come soon i am sure, there will be a crapstorm if it isn't, they have taken a lot of flak over the Defender issue, I'm not so sure they will want a repeat of that, but then this is WG we are on about so who knows.

Didn't need another thread... 

 

And who the feck knows.... WG EU have this ability to wind people up, Its like they get off on it.  While I realise regions are independent from WG... tank releases should at least be at the same time.​ And just shows that EU is the moaning cow they don't care about... (IMO)

 

Yes I want the tank

​This is no OP tank though.

Wouldn't surprise me if they tie it in with Tankfest (end of June), or when Trump decides it was a bad deal and reinvades Vietnam.

No it isn't. but the incoming Polish heavy is rumoured to be the Defender Mk 2, as you say who knows, but back to the topic, would there be much difference in this tank to say the Primo Victoria, or the Centurion AX, as to which is more powerful better armoured etc?

5/1 is slightly better, not by a huge margin though. Better upper plate, slightly better gun handling, tiny bit more engine power.

I assume you mean the Centurion Mk.I?

The Centurion AX is a Tier X, and so obviously out-performs the others.

The 5/1 is pretty much just a better Centurion Mk.I - which while it may or may not be OP, it's still just better than the standard tech tree variation.

This does not sit well with me personally, but I suppose it's something they can easily fix by buffing the Centurion Mk.I...not that they will, of course.

It just renders the FV4202 even more obsolete which is a bit sad...

But oh well, I still want the 5/1, it looks sexy

I am becoming fine/used to with the policy of prems being better than tech tree ones. But the margin of how much better should be small. I buy a prem to play it - if its crap I wont. I pay for fun. And this Cent 5/1 seems to be a good example of "OK kind" of prems.

It will see tier X 80% of the time. Good luck having fun with its pea shooter. In summary, don't waste your money.

Defenders actually a good tank. a 20 pounder british tank is never good.

Shouldn't that be "money tree they don't care about"? Maybe they will release it in EU closer to payday.

And basically this ^^ Maybe they can time the release with a tank trade-in event...?

Eh.. im kinda 50/50 on RAAC. Cent AX is basically this but slower and boat loads of DPM to compensate the TRASHYNESS that is the 20 effing garbage pounder.

Then don't buy it.  While I think the FV4202 is in dire need of further buff. The PV / Cent 1 are decent.   

 

At the end of the day it's about enjoying the tank or women you're driving.   

 

I enjoy the Centurions.  Not op not UP.  Just.  OK.  

 

I like just OK.

Aha, my bad yes it is top tier but  though there was a premium version, IS3a or some such thing, obviously getting confused.

Any infrmation now?

Cannot wait for it! I am looking for it for 1-2 weeks. Cheking the website 30-40 times a day, write to support, but I cant find any usable information.

And I am very dissapointed because It is avaiable on NA and RU.

Thank you WG EU!!! :(
