I really wanted one, I'm kinda bored with the Churchill III as a crew trainer, and for Team Battles, CW and 2v2 etc. but at over £50 I just can't justify it.

 

I'll just have to do without.

Whenever I'll play arty for now on, i'm gonna make sure to position the way I will hit your Defender, no matter if there is a better target :trollface:

Just to balance you ofc.

No, Cant afford it and I already have an IS6 from way back for crew training etc.

Plus I'm at the point where I'm not sure I want to put any money back into the game. I've taken a break and only just come back. I don't know if I'll go for any premium account time to be honest. I'd prefer to spend the money on that rather than the Defender if I did, far better value I think.

It's broken/OP so no, I won't be buying it as I have the common decency to not add to an ever growing problem in one of my favorite games.

 

I just wish more of the player base had a spine.

I think the majority simply are now aware / understand / or both the issues that these things create

So after new update of client today we got what was sneaking out over all corners...Defender is BACK!No special paint as was first times,naked,but same tonk as everyone was crying about...I think what ever people say WG gona grab huge slice of cake from it and most people gona buy it for them self as pre Xmas gift.

 

Im one of them and im proud of this choice and im sure tons of bots who was shaming Defender as super OP will buy it too,maybe less loudly,maybe even in silent but even for 50£ they gona do it!

 

What you think?What you gona do?

 

Have fun and enjoy.

 

I WONt buy it.

I did buy it because I really did wish to have a crew trainer for all my hvy my Russian tanks. I have the IS6 as a rental, with a discount coupon, but when I subtracted the 30days and gold price from the 252u price it was about the same.

So it came down to which was the better in exp and credit per battle and vBstats had the 252u as higher in those results.

TBH the IS6 really has ok armour now in this current MM, but might be let down by the gun. The 252u gets destroyed with ease by the MM, but the gun when it doesn't miss is better. So pros and cons balance out for randoms. In CW the 252u and IS3 will remain the Stalins choice over the IS6.

 

If your buying the 252u because you are under the impression its superpowered and your a newb, think again. It's been around long enough the unicums know how to make you mincemeat and you'll remain a newb.

I bought 2*

*Not really but I did need some gold so good timing. now I can enjoy gold spam in that as much as my maus gets.

At least i'll be able to bully tier6 2 in every 100 games.

I bought the 252 when it was first on sale as my beloved IS-6 was wrecked with the MM update.

 

Hate the tank and never play it. Gun is rubbish, its slow and clumsy and armor means nothing anyway since you be bottom tier 95% of all battles. Don´t waste real cash on it.

Not buying.

I am not a collector so nope...  I don't need another tier 8 tank to hide from tier 9 and X in.  I don't particularly disagree with 7,5 3 as I think it forces me to think and be creative when low tier but do find the numbers of games I find myself in as low tier to be frustrating.

I would have bought if unbundled version was available.  But since there isn't my wallet stays shut.

*Looks at garage containing KV-220, Churchill III, KV-122, IS-2 Berlin, IS-6, IS-5 and Obj.260...

 

*Looks in barracks and wonders how I've ended up with one decent Soviet heavy crew, and one on 2.5 skills...

 

£50 y'say?

 

I'm so weak

No.

90% of the time in tier X battles,in a tier 8 heavy tank for me is a nono. im always for a faster medium where atleast you can relocate(spaghetto), that armor wont help ya anyway against type 5s, s.qonqs etc. having no speed in a bottom tier match is a killer. well, at least thats my angle on it.

There are three reasons to buy a premium tank ...

 

1) To earn credits.

2) To train crew.

3) For the fun of playing the tank.

 

If you already own some tier 8 tanks (especially if they are good credit earners), (1) doesn't apply.

If your Russian heavy crews are good or if you already have a crew trainer that you like (KV-220-2, Churchill III, KV-122, IS-2 Berlin, IS-6 or IS-5), then (2) doesn't apply.

 

I'm sure the defender is fun to play (55% WR), it's also good in CWs and SHs, so if you're sure you'll play it a lot (500 games ?!?!?), then it might be worth it for you.

 

Personally I have numerous tier 8 prems, I have the Church 3 (most played tank), the IS-6 and an Obj-257, so that leaves (3).

 

Do I think I would get £50 worth of enjoyment out of it ?  I don't think so.  I still haven't played my Pilot 1, Progetto or Caernarvon  AX enough to my liking.

I do want a higher tier Soviet HT premium for crew training even though I have the Churchill III already. Also, I have a 20% discount coupon that won't apply to the 252, so 60 euro for a bundle or 34 euro's for the IS-6...?

Decisions. Decisions.
