Is/was the idea of buffing and removing the PMM tanks the greatest marketing ploy ever.

 

Introduce 3 5 7 mm knowing it will force all but tier 9 and 10 tanks into being low tier pinatas most games.

Blame PMM tanks for the problem.

imply you are going to buff PMM tanks and give them normal MM

Show example of a KV5 with some excellent improvements.

Claim this will fix everything.

Spend summer selling as many PMM tanks as possible.

Cancel PMM buffs claim you listened to the players.

 

 

 

 

 

 

PPM buffs cancelled and all is well? Nop, sorry, I want my premium tanks playable, not op, but unlike this KV220, able to damage other tanks of the same class.

 

And what is the story with KV220? Armor was good years ago, gun was bad but now it's a joke, you are more likely to do ram damage, but it is a slow heavy.

Hopelessly powercreeped tank, I have it for years and really fell the pain of new owners, play it once and despair.

Where are those "thank you gifts in 2018" for old players you mentioned last year WG? Maybe give something for free to the long term players for a change?

 

#walletclosed until we get something for the old players (and I don't mean boosters and that sort of (...))

Oh yeah, that is a good one! It's still 2018 though so who knows, we might still get something....

 

But I imagine it will be Wargaming's definition of a gift: Something for which you have to spend money in the first place but at a discount.

Do not buy this tank.

Extremely situational, OP when top tier vs bad players, horrible when not top tier which is 80% of the time.

Another fine *edited  for your customers.

saying you’re going to remove PMM under false pretenses, and look, selling yet another PMM tank.

 

some people would consider this outright fraudulent, selling a tank with a key attribute you full well know you’re going to remove ASAP..

This tank used to be good. Now it really is extremely situational.

Been waiting over a year for a this. But guess what, #walletclosed until you sort that PMM-charade.

 

Well tbh, it's not as good as it once was. You have sub 100 pen vs O-I's and 114mm armor Exesliors to name one. So it don't work too well unless you run a metric ton of gold ammo. And most know not to aim at the hull anymore, as the turret it auto pen for even a few tier 4 guns. 

 

But you get a round now and then facing only guns that bounce on your lower plate. But they are less and less common. So as said above. It's more and more situational as the metas kick it more and more back.

Selling a PMM tank when you just announced (drastic) changes to these types of tanks for an inflated price as well.........seriously Wargaming what is wrong with you?

 

Cobra 6

 

Well as WG said, they plan to go lower down if the KV-5 solution works. And if it's owners scream out about it, it won't work. So it's not set in stone yet as such for the rest. I'm not a KV-5 owner, so I can't do that sadly. That and they said if it works they will do the same with pref MM even lower down, but did not mention where that lower limit was in terms of tiers. As in if they would go as deep as tier 5 or not.

Powercreeped and the fact it can get 1 shot threw the turret by a KV-2 HE. avoid at all costs. the AP gun cannot hurt a O-I Exp reliably even with gold. once you get tier 6 you are literally 100% useless with standard AP.

 

Also this tank has PREFF, again WG, why are you selling preff tanks? the root of all evil? last you said they was breaking the MM.

Used to own this tank back when it was just the kv-220, rage sold it as everyone knew where to shoot it(turret). If I remember correctly I bought it for 100euro in a special bundle yet now its only 25 euro. Wanted to buy it back again but listening to all the comments its still a bad tank so think ill give it a miss.

I am missing the "Standard"  bundle - you know the bundle without goodies we dont need, just the tank itself with garage slot, but probably I am asking for too much ...

 

Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. J  => Bundle for 100 euro ??? Do you remember ?

Some tanks are "special" (op) . You cant sell it by its self. Can you imagine Pz II J for 400gold ingame shop ?

But hey, who does not want some OP cheap tanks? right ?
