Great spotlight for heavies, unfortunatelly it is not a bug deal. Every weekend is a heavy weekend.

 

But let me spotlight something for you WG: fix the matchmaker!

It is not a proper frontline heavy but rather a hevium hybrid. It has ok speed, good turret armor and gun, but the hull is nothing special against tier 8s and above(still trollish sometimes but don't rely on it). The alpha is lacking but the DPM is great and the shells are cheap, so a good moneymaker. 
Overall it is one of the better premiums available, and it is cheap compared to the rest of the premium tier 8 heavies.

 

Nice description! It's not a KV1 at tier 5.

 

So angling, finding cover and keep "dancing" are a must. I found only old articles on the T26E5 where they complain about the gun precision; it was 0.38, now is 0.36. I have the T54 mod1, I like it and find it "sound" but the gun has too low pen (190mm) and I'm unable to contribute, in a significant way, to the battle.

The accuracy is fine for shooting at up to mid range, but 0.36 is not a sniping accuracy( on that note, i'm not sure if even the 0.28 accuracy on my Skorpion G is good enough for the 400m+ sniping that TD is meant to do anymore...RNG is king...).

Yes i enjoy it. And i haven't noticed the clickers focusing me more than the other heavies. If you think about buying it, watch some reviews in youtube about it to see if it fits the way you play.

Lol, selling the T26E5 (Patriot) for HT weekend? That tank isnt even a proper HT; its a Medium with a HT designation...

 

Also too bad no discount on Tier 8+ since I have the T32 waiting to be bought. Guess it'll have to wait a little longer and at least I can get the KV-3 this weekend.

 

Drat I messed up worked my way to the 110 unlocked it sold my IS2.

Looks like a bit of a delay before I continue the Chinese Heavy line, Need a Tier 8 discount and a crew retraining discount.

Ok, last question: it's not too big, like the VK45.03?

Defender situation other than it being supposedly OP is just the way Premiums are introduced now.

Some get included in the game itself buy for gold and so on, while others are more exclusive.

Its like they are trying to create a Type 59 situation where "everyone" wants one but few can have it.

 

By now the likes of the Patriot Liberte and others should be entering the game and be listed on the tech tree.

Instead they remain somehow special with limited sales sometimes extremely limited.

I think the lesson we are supposed to learn is buy the second a new premium is listed.

Those who hesitate miss out.

 

Its also about time they time stamp premiums like a regular product.

Here is your tank which you paid money for we will not alter your product in the first year.

After that we can alter it and you can have an exchange for another product or the value in in gold.

After 3 years we can  make any changes we like.

What about that KV-122? Good tenk? The VK might look more sexy, but I actually need a good crew trainer for my 600 rashan HT crews. Apart from that, it's a lot cheaper than the German.

 

edit: from what's on the paper, it doesn't look so tempting at all. The old KV1S but one tier up, mmmh...

 

ehm, I was about to suggest the defender (since I was able to pick one out when it was sold...) but it is strange that they have not provided a reliable russian HT crew trainer.

note, I could mention the IS-6, but I doubt the ability of that.

 

is it crazy that I remembered when I feared a IS-6 on the battlefield once upon a time?

"A bright beam of light has arrived in World of Tanks... The tank class spotlight is here and highlighting your great shiny heavies this weekend! "

My great shiny heavies are from tier 8 and up... I need tier 10 reductions (not 15%, that's useless...the proper 30%).


 

Not now...but I need to know when will we have them again? on all/any class...

"tank you"...

There are a few, though I think the Churchill III is just a meme tank it trains tanks faster than any other tank at that level.

- KV-2 R right now is imho a good one, even if you need to keep up a dedicated crew member for it, downside is that it is expensive. Of course if you don't like the gameplay in general then not so fun.

- IS-2 Berlin, again the gun is derpy but punchy, suffers a lot when it gets to T9 and is only sold two times a year.

IS-6 is crap right now yeah so that only leaves the Churchill III as a reliable crew trainer (if not...well...reliable at least it is faster than the others in that regard)

You are right, the current prem shop is too staid we need new stuff, although like always I get slated for saying such things, but you are right.
