Omg.. 44 EUR tank... What abouts its stats? Is it a 175 penetration tank? Which can not earn credits because you have to use premium shells... This is over the top :)

Well I'm grinding the IS slowly and even though that's T7 I find I need to use a lot of gold.

 

Pen has never been the strong point of that 122mm gun, they're giving it a bit pen soon though. Something like 185 :trollface:

Hmmm Alpine....does it mean that it can climb good and that those nuts fixed maps and physics to previous state where it was possible to climb on various places where only tanks with speed and good terrain ressitance were able to climb and fight? That was making game interesting. Before tomatoes started cry river for removal of those abilities....

This is just another skin for a premium tank- for good money. (Like T34B)

 

Btw, if you want that special looking for your tank then search the web, you can download that skin for free.

 

WG: Preferential match making premium tanks are problem.

Also WG: Let's sell more preferential match making premium tanks!

They more or less admitted to the PMM tanks thing being false though. :trollface:

That kind of money for a tier VIII heavy with 175 base pen in the world of 3-5-7? I don't even want to play the one I got for free. :D

06:03 Added after 2 minutes

N1, not worth the money with that horrible pen.

 

But since its almost fully rusted in the garage now, I shall take the swap for that new skin so have it shiny again

Aha...real world places are used by XVM noobs? Good one......... In any case I do not use XVM. I do not need that for knowing that 90% of teams sucks or that those with way high stats spam gold as hell.

Learn to read stats. As I get those by playing light tanks and not using gold. Try the same ;-)

And that "fix" to "problematic" places causing tanks turn over on even smallest bumbs, doing piruets on jump in speed or exploding when falling 1m that is sooooooooooo super playable :D

So this is just a WZ111 with a nice paint job, right? No difference?
