What 100 gold? Didn't see no gold for the missions so far.

Buying a tier5 tank you'll never play is probably a bad deal.

Why would you? It's worse than the tech tree T-34 and you already got 4 soviet medium tank crew trainers. It also has (afaik) wrong crew layout for high tier soviet medium tanks.

It's best use will be garage decoration, since it looks fairly nice but doesn't look the least bit fun to actually play.

I got back from my holiday when the event started luckily. 

 

But the event lasts for 50 days. And runs on pair with the real dates of the event. But... I suspect WG thought about that too, and thus why you get the tank for doing 30 days, and not all 50. So if you miss 10 days on the tank itself. I guess it's not a bad price to pay just for the tank tbh if it's a few days. And if you need a Russian crew trainer that is. If not, then are you really missing out?

Still better off then the 86 pen tier 5 Matilda IV. And vs other tier 5 prem meds. It's not terrible. It's still got the most pen, the most module damage, the most shell speed, the biggest caliber gun, the most potential damage... actually over 2x more then the Turan III. So on the gun side. It's better off them most tier 5 prem meds. 2nd higest top speed even. Tho among the worst in terms of armor. So for free, it's not a terrible deal as tier 5 prems go.

Get a life, you can't have everything you want. But tell the forum where you are going on holiday and we could have a whip round for your bus fair, just for our peace and quiet for three weeks.

I agree and I don't mind getting it in my garage. For the looks if nothing else. But I think the OP was referring to buying one and getting the gold from missions. Since he has T-28E, T-54 mod1, Rudy and T-34-85m, I think there's little point investing real money in T-34 shielded. 

 

While it's good/ok for a tier5 premium, it's still just that: yet another soviet low tier premium tank. 

 

For active players 30/50 days will happen, but if not, you shouldn't be afraid of missing out. Unless you like to collect things.

Why would you buy 3.2k gold and 50 missions for 100 gold if you can buy the same amount of gold - 8.2k - for the same price?

 

But if you're away and cannot grind the T-34s then it might be good option (if you really want the tank). Way overpriced though. Premium KV-2 level of being overpriced.

well.... current event seems to be very easy. Today's mission I did in 1 battle. So, it seems that the only requirement to get that tank is to play 30 out of 50 days.

 

If you cannot do that for one reason or another, then you can wait a bit till this tank will hit the stores again w/o any bundles. New Year maybe.

Well you get 1000 gold for €1.25 which is *edited* all money tbh I probably lost more out of my pocket while scratching my balls while driving today and of course most ppl buy €10-€20 of gold at a time which is even better value so, even though this tank is just a tier5 pew pew thingy, will I let it slide for the sake of €1? Hardly, I will get the tank anyway.  

 

Depends on a players preference though. I didn't in the slightest want the Paggieto... Paggeto? that Italian tier8 premium marathon tank, even for free and even if the missions were laughably easy I knew I would not like or use that tank so I missed weeks of WOT just to avoid the usual marathon clusterfuk of genetic regression on display

If you buy the bundle from the shop, each mission you actually complete you get 100 Gold.

Exactly, 1 battle and there are two different missions to choose from each day and you need only one per day.

you need to look deeper into things than you are at the moment.

 

This world is run by aliens. They are immortal beings, so time is not important to them. 

They sit and watch. They have a bit of fun with the human race, a bit of nookie when they fancy it. They split us into teams, prod us into certain actions, instigate fights between factions, and all for their entertainment.

And most importantly they will do whatever it takes to prevent us gaining knowledge of them and attempting to free ourselves of their domination.

 

So, as an example, they allow us the occasional small victory. They allowed us to develop trades unions. They let us think we were gaining something with the rights those unions won for us. The right to have holidays. And just as we become complacent, and assume that we have a right to go on holiday, they pull the rug from under us with tricks like this Kursk event.

 

Another example, just as the world is settling in to a comfortable routine, they manipulate things so the Trump becomes US President and throws a spanner in the works. Or as in Britain, the populace comes to their senses and votes for Brexit, so the aliens arrange for Theresa May to become Prime Minister. 

 

You cant beat the aliens. They see everything, they hear everything and they will do everything to thwart your plans. 

 

 

I must now go and report for the alien re-education program. All hail the aliens.

I'm on holiday for a fortnight in the Kursk event period, If the tasks are no more onerous than they have been so far I will get the T34 Shielded, but I'll miss out on 7 days of premium  30 repair/firstaid/extinguishers and a clown suit for a tank

 

I can't say I'm going to miss a lot and so it's not really bad for me going on holiday...

I bought the supreme pack because I wanted to buy gold anyway, and the 300% CXP boosters are what I use when I train a new crew for a keeper, and then there were Credit Boosters as well.  The opportunity to collect an extra 100 gold a day is also kind of nice, plus the 1 million silver for completing 30 daily missions.

 

Regarding the tank, well, yeah. it will be collecting dust.    The T-34 T5 is best played with the 57mm gun.  The 76mm with the 3.3 sec reload is just not good.  it is also quite sluggish.
