Yesterday TAP released this article:

 

https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2018/08/07/fearless-camo-for-caernarvon-action-x/

 

After the special styles for the Progetto and 50TP, it seems like WG have given up on selling us the same tank twice (Patriot/Liberte/Black Editions) and instead give us some fancy camo for new premiums for free. I, for one, welcome that idea.

I've gotten the T26E5 from last years lootboxes and I'd love being able to rock the Patriot paintjob every once in a while. Sadly, since the Patriot is a thing and I don't think WG would ever consider merging those 2 tanks into 1 (and I don't intend to buy a Patriot, ever), this will most likely never happen. Although I'd have to admit I'd probably fork out a few bucks for the camo-style if it ever became available...

 

Anyways, with the somewhat high amount of rant- and whine-threads lately I'd figured creating a positive thread would be a nice change. Also, I'd love to hear what others think about the new (kind-of) 2-for-1 tanks we're getting lately.

 

Happy tanking!

I think it looks quite nice, is this an indicator then that the tank is coming to a live server anytime soon?

 

Oddly enough, the 50TP has put me off the Defender, with the deliberate overhype of that tank by WG themselves I don't trust them, but if this comes out i hope it isn't some nerfed down POS like the TP

 

 

I might be tempted to buy once more if this thing appeared in the shop, well twice more actually if the Chrysler K came along too, after that i am sure i would have run out of premiums tanks to buy

be another tank I won't buy.

 

lets be honest why do you need prem T8s
 

Train crew - nah not when they print +300% crew boosters

Earn credits - randoms - yeah ok nice try.

Earn credits - FL - ofc but then you only really need 2 or perhaps 3 tanks

Earn credits - SH - ofc but again all you need are 2 or 3.
 

So just buy T8 light, T26E5 and Prog (which most of us got for free) and you are golden.

Looks nice!  will pick one up. Wanted it for awhile since it first popped up ages ago, Camo makes me want it even more.

 

God the comments on that made me lose alot of brain cells though

Maybe on a christmas/new-years sale if they have done some good mm changes. Adding a premium tier 8 heavy to the garage in these times seems like a waste.

Seems like the Kanonenjagdpanzer 105 also got his own style!

Tbh... It's why I won't buy it. I have 8 UK HT's. 4 of them are premiums. I doubt I need one more. And I doubt it will beat the training record from 75% base to 100% on the 1st skill that my Excelsior still holds without boosters, that has trained most of my current crews anyway. And I have a 3 skilled crew or more on each of my 4 keepers. 

 

That and it's a tier 8 HT. The least played tier 8 premium class for me atm. Lowe still makes great credits, but after ammo and repair there is not much left, vs the ELC 90. ELC makes less usually. But spends nothing on ammo and repair. So you get a nice profit each round.

Not that interested in this one. The issue I have with it is that no UK tank would be painted like that ever. But the motto is historical. It is in fact the motto of the RTR, and appears on the cap badge.

 

Tank motto's tended to be very small in real life;

 

The first Tank was used in battle in September 1916 by the British at Battle of Flers–Courcelette as part of the Battle of the Somme. I would assume therefore that WG will issue this premium in September to coincide with that anniversary?

So finally something to loo forward to, a certain forum poster, whilst salty most of the time his opinions I do respect, will be more than happy.

Yep....too late for me probably.

 

Got a very good Super Conq crew and a good Conqueror crew as well. Why should I pay Wargaming for the privilege of "crew training" in tier 8 bottom tier all the time?

 

Too little, too late in terms of a British tier VIII heavy,,,,,

 

Obviously if I've had a beer and I can remember my paypal password all the above counts for nothing!

Hi.

Not really a big fan of spending time on premiums instead of grindings, but I see at least 2 real uses :

- to train crew for line tanks you don't have. For instance in my t26e5 I put the t57 crew we got in an event. Same with HT VI while I haven't jap heavies.

- to use my tX crews in Frontline. I have my stb1 crew in my sta2 and that's great :)

It was all good untill you realise its the same junk 76mm lower plate with ammorack behind it, oh and its a 20 pounder not the 32 pounder the current Cearnarvon has. enjoy your 230 alpha bottom tier heavy.

Weak LFP I can deal with, but why indeed that crappy 20-pounder on a T8 HT...???
