Rev is a nice tank but when it's gun trolls you is the best at this. From all tank that i played i have never seen a tank that can hit 10 times and pen only 1. Rev is the master of criticals without damage.

Are there anyone buying tier 8 premiums for the time being?
With current crap MM it is hopeless to play tier 8.

Rev is nice, STA-2 is in need of buffs as it has been power crept severely.

 

DPM increase, better gun handling suitable for snapshots and a tad increase in mobility. Then it's worth the money.

STA-2 is a paper tank and compared to other Tier VIII premium tanks extremely underpowered. 

 

Its use is limited to a "camper" tank.

Revo is actually ok because the gun has such high velocity shells that cost almost nothing to shoot. So it easily earns credits. Decent ridgeline ability too but the turret is made of wet paper :unsure:

13 57 is borderline OP, it's better than the Even 90 even if they were forced into the same tier. Plus WG didn't sell it for ages and suddenly have done so twice this year so far...

Yeah,let's center all the tank changes around your suggestions. I'm sure the game will be simply amazing then!

Besides,you must have missed the fact it's DPM got actually nerfed but to compensate - raised AP pen from ~180 > 212. It's fine,entirely nothing to complain about. Although I do miss the days of spamming loads of HEAT with ~5 sec reload.

you don't need armor in any medium to be good. it's a gimmick. You want underpowered? Look no further: IS-6,KV-5,FCM 50 t,AMX CDC,a bunch of others im lazy to name

 what,you mean the way every japanese medium is supposed to be played like? Which is to say,redline camping early game,flanking late game?

 nothing extra-ordinary if you have played a TD.

If you're in any way OK with the Even 90 then get yourself a 13 57 and never play the T8 tank ever again :child:

I already have the m4 rev .I bought it with gold .

Can I make use of the 30% discount to get 7200 gold when I buy it again? 

Or they will give me credits instead of gold ?

I actually don't own an Even 90 but I've looked at it's stats in some detail and played vs many.

 

13 57 is better according to pretty much all who've spoken out, mostly as it's a tier lower and it has some impressive autocannon thing that fires a shot a second with impressive accuracy, plus the reload is stupidly quick as in 15s which is unreal for an autloader. Whereas the Even 90 has some sort of meh 3 round autoloader that takes an age to reload with questionable accuracy. 

 

Only issue is WG's clear money grab as they're charging extra for the privilege of using it.

Cause you can't read.......

 

AMX 13 57 includes gold even in standard offer. ELC Even 90 you buy without that. And anyway AMX 13 57 is so way OP in right hands. Not hands in those stupid [edited]who play them with full gold :D Do not listen to those clowns at all.

That, or the Chrysler K which is right now on the Asian server, and was on the NA for a month the last time around, after that I don't think there are any more tanks that I want, although I am very very unsure about the Defender now.
