Instead of paying 60 euros for this game breaking, money milking abomination, wouldn't it be smarter to just play the tech tree Obj257 instead?

You get a much better tank, similar troll armour but better and have more fun in 3-5-7. Unless you're playing in CW or enjoy stomping tier 6's why on earth would anyone in their right mind pay for these pixels?

I have it already, don't play it, but then I don't play much apart from my Matilda these days!

Frontline was great for using Defender, and with the buffs to some other T8 prems I would love to see FL return soon

What a shocker. WG's greed clearly knows no bounds. Nope, won't be purchasing this overpriced POS especially as it's only available as part of a sh**ty bundle because apparently WG just had to screw the playerbase absolutely as hard as they could and releasing the Defender on its own wasn't enough. 

 

Seems like a good time to roll out the tier 9s though as no doubt there will be a number of people stupid enough to felate WG's bank account. Will have to test how well it holds up against its bigger brother; the OBJ 257.

There is just no way in hell i would ever buy a simple pixel tank for 60€. In a game where i can literally drive hundrets of tanks for free. For that amount of money I could almost buy RDR2 for example. Or at least 3 indie games on Steam, each of which would probably be better than WoT. Or take my girlfriend out for dinner. Or just get really drunk. There are countless ways i could think of to spend those 60€, and all would be better than buying a freaking Defender.

The regular price of around 40€ for most of the better tier 8 premiums is already way too much, but offering this broken tank in a bundle for 60€, after having artificially inflated the demand by limiting the supply is just ridiculously greedy. Just gtfo WG and fix you damn MM.

Yet in the end those are all just also a bunch of pixels just like a Defender.

I'm not gonna buy it. Too expensive and am not really good in Russian heavys.

nope, not here. I mean why bother?

 

yes it's an OP tier 8 but it will see T9 and T10 most of the time anyway and i won't play it in randoms. Then i have Prog, T26 and plenty of other decent T8 prems for SH, TB or FL so why waste £50?

Already seen my first 3 man platoon of them when I played my tier 6 Skoda for the Czech mission. Ofc they steamrolled the poor IS-M, T32 and a stock 53TP on the enemy team.

Sure it will see mostly tier 9 and X. But with the ammount I'm sure WG will sell over the next few days. I'm sure there is plenty of room for them in tier 6 and pure tier 8 games to make their mark either way.

I don't really like op tanks, it makes me feel ill at ease.

I bought a Thunderbolt, and THAT is a challenge.

With it I can take a defender any time any where ... by caping faster.

No. Perhaps the stand-alone version. But at €60 something, hell no.
I think WG asume that people that is caught up in the Defender hype will pay the money because they want an OP tank.
My best guess is that it's gonna work.

I'm disappointed that there isn't a yes/no poll on this thread. I and many other Defender owners were waiting for the opportunity to snort derisively about the tank on sale being the Object 252U, not the Defender.

Nope. Too high a price for my tastes. Got plenty tanks anyway and not enough time to drive them all.

hell will freeze over 1st and as much as I dislike arty, the first arty player who one shots one will earn some gold from me so first person who posts the replay wins

 

Challenge accepted. Although I doubt they can be one-shot even by tier X arty, unless they're very low on HP.

Why would I waste money on a Defender when I already have the TVP VTU.
