Hi, I want to buy the big and awesome tank the Defender / Object 252U in the future on the servers for me. Do you have any idea when it will be put on sale? Please reply quickly. 

 

I know the message wot about Defender \ Obj252U, but I would like to know when and if it will be released for sale on EU servers. Those who complain that he is OP, are afraid they will meet him in battle with him and do not know how to destroy him :)

The Defender/Object 252U will not be sold on EU servers.

 

Expect it to be a prize if you buy enough Christmas boxes in later December 2018.

Don't get sucked in by the hype, with so few battles (apologies if this is not your first account), look at something at a lower Tier where you can grind silver & Crew XP without suffering from the 3/5/7 MM. Good players can play them very well, sadly I don't fall into that category.

 

Save your money till there is a special event eg: Tankfest or Christmas sales.

Hopefully never, but then again, knowing WG, they'll sell it eventually, because people will buy it.

I suspect they'll sell it around Christmas, as part of the Christmas calendar special, where they sell all the 'rare' tanks they don't intend to sell the normal ways.

 

Just keep in mind,k the Defender is strong, but you still need to know game basics to make it work. Sort like the IS-3, strong tank, but if you aren't good, the tank won't do much either.

Seriously, the Defender is very over hyped, the only games you will have that are amazing if you are top tier, town map and players who dont press 2 or know where to pen you. I absolutely hate the defender that gun is horrible, and ive screamed "russia" at the top of my voice, made no difference. Skorp and Lorr 40t are far better tanks if you are a decent player, lowe is probably best for all other players.

I’ve got a feeling we’ll see it as part of the Xmas loot boxes.

Did someone mention the Defender?

 

For me there are a number of possible scenarios when it comes to the Defender.

 

1) They release the Czolg with acceptable stats, I buy that instead so the Defender issue will be slightly smaller for me. This scenario still leaves me with the problem of my Soviet crews unless they will provide us with the option of changing crew nationality in which case my crews will go Rokossowski.

 

2) They won't release the Czolg or it will be nerfed and will be inferior to the Defender in which case the issue persists and my wallet stays closed.

 

3) They will in fact put them in those Christmas lottery loot boxes in which case all the people who buy those boxes in the first hour will get a stack of Defenders and everyone else will be left disappointed. This scenario would almost certainly not only leave my wallet permanently closed when it comes to WG but probably also make me quit WoT completely.

They should not be in loot boxes full stop, if they sold it once they should sell it again, although the lower front play and turret ring are weak spots, it is a much overhyped tank and this is deliberate play on WG EU's behalf.

 

As Browarszky says if the third option is the one WG goes for it is basically a con in my eyes, as for the new hope of the super OP Polish tank, I expect that to be nerfed as well.

 

I am pretty certain the Defender was sold pretty much around this time of year last year so a surprise sale of it cannot be ruled out, but don't hold your breath, of course if it does on on general sale, the WG EU make a huge sum of money overnight, cynically clever if you like, same story goes for the E25, those who do not have it now for sure will not miss a second chance.

This is the 2nd time when I see the forum get broken when somebody ask where he can buy defender.

Can't be coincidence.
