I just read the news article that the 50TP has gone on sale,

https://worldoftanks...otyp-pre-sales/

And I thought they learned at WG after they released some balanced tanks. Guess not, let's compare the 50TP to the very balanced defender

https://tanks.gg/com...t=50tp-prototyp

Looks like nearly all relevant stats are better on the 50TP, sure it might not have the defender hull armor but having 10 degrees of gun depression with a strong turret is huge. Please tell me these stats are wrong, and it isn't as good as it looks like because if they released another very op premium tank I've lost all my trust in WG and you won't see me anymore on the battlefield.

 

I might spoke a little to soon, just found out it has 4 degrees of depression over the front, a good player will just be able to work around it but it is aatleast a little light

Lets see:

- Hull which is impenetrable for same tier standard ammo: Check! (Lower plate is almost never visible in this game due to map design and micro ridges)

- Turret which is impenetrable for same tier standard ammo: Check!

- Minute weak spot on the turret which in most engagements is extremely hard to hit: Check!

- Good DPM and good gun handling: Check!

- Good mobility for a heavy with said armor: Check!

 

Conclusion: Yes, WG has learned absolutely nothing for the Defender debacle but since they only see dollars they never wanted to learn in the first place. This inches WoT yet another step closer to an untimely demise but WG doesn't care as long as they make short term profit.

It has to be OP, otherwise p2w aspect would be disgraced :D

Let's be honest here, who the hell is going to buy premium tanks if they are way worse that normal tech tree counterparts apart from a few tank collectors :coin:

Looks slightly (lmao) stronger that most other tier 8s heavies if you ask me.

The presale thread has been deleted.

Looks like it wasn't meant to be released today maybe?

Whoops.

Why after 8 years of consistently doing the same thing do people still think WG will change?

T8 becomes more and more unplayable, OP tanks and always bottom. Just keep playing t9 and t10...

I'm actually not impressed by its armor. This part looks terrible:

Turret ring shouldn't be hard to penetrate either.

The biggest kicker for me is the fact that the Polish tree isn't even in the game yet and they have a T8 heavy premium tank while the poor British tree has been there for years and still doesn't have a premium heavy.

they've done that multiple times? With the swedish tree the strv at t6 and the t8 prem td. Aswell as with the italians and the progetto. So it isnt the first time

Well to be fair there's the "fantastic" FV201...  T7 and I'm not sure I'd call it heavy even if it's on the paper, but eh..  it's something!
