wow. hasn't it been sold for almost a week now?

there are quite a few things not running the way they should with you, WG. you should see a doctor.

 

PS: No purchase until the future of PMM is clear. This includes the RAAC you're now offering too (what a "surprise" #EUComesLast), which you aren't mentioning at all.

Would be a good selling point, although the Bromwell is still better as it can fill more play styles than this one.

Yep BIA crews are always a good selling point.

I would have this if I did not already have the AC4 Experimental .

 

It just shows the order in which you release premium tanks is important.

Other than the fudge about the Mobility the only reason I bought the AC1 Sentinel and the AC4 was because they were commonwealth tanks so part of the British Tech Tree.

Had they released a premium firefly first I would have that and would probably now be asking, what the heck is an AC4 never heard of it.

Because we have a plan for RAAC,   you can almost say, a "golden" plan.......

 

For Firefly, is that really something this game need? More premium vehicles.  And dont forget, premium vehicles will never outperform its non-premium counterpart (cough deffender, patriot etc cough)

The RAAC is on sale in the store.
You need to be logged in and have a premium acc, I believe.

Ah yeah, it's the Firefly you buy for real money which is blatantly superior to the one you can unlock in the game for free. Forgot about that one :D

 

Firefly is a trash tank though regardless due to it's lack of mobility and gun depression, but that is not relevant for the above point.

 Lets look from brighter perspective

Maybe they realised that whomever got idea to decrease side and rear armor of KV-5 in order to "perfect" KV-5 and offend KV-5  custommers by that way is not worth to drive a tractor on a farm least decide about computer game destiny, so they fired him ( or a group of conspirators) and are searching for new think-tanks that would do  perfection of pref MM tanks without pissing off custommers

Whats super about one of the worst possible sluggish platforms, the size of a house while being paper thin, and you strap a semi decent pop gun on it but its a 17-pounder so it handles like dogcrap.

I have had it for about a week.  Total waste of money.  Was good in its first top-tier battle and has been bottom tier in every other game, where it is totally useless.  But I fancied rebuying the standard Firefly and this thing came along so I took a punt.  The punt did not pay off in this case.

Yeah buy yourself 1 day of premium log into the game and you can buy the RAAC

Just got one as a gift that way, had to log in twice before the popup showing it appeared but it worked.

Good they do this stupidity again that players who have prem account will get a pop up window(if they are lucky) in game that they can buy the RAAC before others?Really hate this practice.I guess I am a second hand costumer to them as I don't have a prem account at the moment so I can't buy that tank.That doesn't really matter to them as I have spent thousands upon thousands EUR in the last 6-7 years on this game I am still second hand cos I don't run a constant prem account.

Yes, you are probably right.... but why u get upset?, itll be for sale for everyone in a couple of weeks anyway.

Wg dont care about previous customers, only future ones.... useless to [edited]about it, it will never change.
