Just got an ingame pop up, saying I can get the Centurion RAAC in an early access bundle, like the ELC Even 90 back then. 

Is the bundle worth the money? 80 bucks aren‘t exactly cheap.

I got no PopUp or offer :( But 80..what? $? €? £? Either way.. hefty pricetag. I gues including Premium time, Gold and so on, right?

From what I ve seen in forum/youtube it will be a  British prem (better than FV 4202 and Primo Victoria).

If you need a crew trainer, go for it.

You dont have the choice of just the vehicle with this offer?

Is it like either buy the supreme bundle or wait 1 week for normal release?

I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole, I have the Cent 1 the 20pdr gun is absolute garbage, it bounces off the front of most Tier VIII, has no effect on tier 9 or 10 mediums, avoid, total frustration gun.

Then you're doing something wrong. With 220mm Pen it has one of the highest penetrations among all Tier VIII medium tanks in the game.

So the assumption that it might be released around Tankfest time were true all along then, seems we cynics know WG better than WG themselves.

yeah what I'm doing wrong is wasting silver firing it.

 


 

it's bouncing off the sides of heavies, last night I played a game in platoon and hit 19 times of which 2 penetrated, it's constantly in 3-5-7 bottom tier and 250 damage is utter shyte at this level, a god awfull rubbish gun that you have to fire gold just to hope for a penetration.

Bucks is usually slang for dollar, but I get the confusion as the popup must be for EU...

So if it is 80 bucks that would be maybe £50? If it is in a bundle that wouldn't be so bad. Of course it all depends on the language the OP is talking or the nationality he thinks he is today.

Any confirmed sightings of the RAAC Cent? Is the OP in EU server, or on RU/NA?

 

If they are really are doing pop-up offers, then it must be quite selective. I had the ELC and Firefly early access offers, but no Cent so far. Mind you, the wait has more or less killed my interest anyway...

3:5:7 and the "perfecting balancing pmm" thing have turned me off....

 

Think I'll wait and see, going #walletclosed for a while....WG are not to be trusted having my best interests in mind, paying customer or not.

 

Bobject v4 and gold HE by SuperHeavies, along with some corridor issues and 3 arties each side sort of kills the fun of playing tier 8's

No pop ups here either, just the Elc... but I don't have a premium account if that's a factor like it was with Firefly VC.

Actually I'd like some other tank to pop up but we are not allowed to discuss that here.

The tank whose name shall not be spoken?  I have heard of this tank.  I have set aside enough from the budget for two.

The 20-pdr is notoriously a troll gun. Pen may be high but it behaves like an artillery piece in practice. Fully-aimed shots fly off in to the NA server. 230 alpha is stupid as well.
