No ! Never ! Not even if they offered it to me for free.. this blyatfender. I will buy IS-6 for Xmas, as I tried it with new rental 7 days code, and it is now good and mostly competitive tank.

 

Defender will ofc see many Tier X battles where armor isnt anything that special, but I won't support this move by WG.

Let me see...£51 or a good shag if I don't spend money on an OP tank?

 

I know what I'm gonna choose !

Bought it. Not because it is supposed to be OP, or to increase my stats (Dingers don't care about stats). But because I wanted to have it (missed it the first time it went on sale due to circumstances).

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.

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.

 

The only server with the Actual Defender, is the Chinese one, the RU one has neither the Defender or the Object 252u at this present moment in time.

 

Technically the same tank but the Defender being the one with the patriotic skin, no mudguards or storage bins, and yes I got mine, and why not might be ages before it comes back in shop again, now no more premiums do want to buy.

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.

 

Cobra 6

 

It isn't about spine or lack of it, unless you are talking about extremely good players, it is about fun, people go on about this as though it is the only supposedly OP tank in the game, the fact it is not just makes it a good tank, nothing more, higher tiers will and do shred it to bits, experienced same tier players will do the same, what percentage of WoT's players fall into the extremely competent game play category?

 

 

 

Not me thats for sure (got that one in before anyone else, lol)

Came home from work. I can afford it so I bought it. It ain't all that. Gun is not great, only saw 2 TX battles out of 8 and an E-75 used me as his [edited]in my last battle. Armour is good but not great. I earned some nice credits. Not fun to play as everyone hates you and targets you :hiding:

Bought it because garage needs more prem tanks that rarely get played to decorate it....... And no matter how OP people claim it is.. Nothing and I mean no prem is more OP tier for tier than the lefh.

I am honestly not interested.

it looks pretty op, all denials by the owners withstanding and neither does it look fun, also I hardly play russian tanks so it doesn't even make sense otherwise.

Bought it last time around and do not like it (Gun sucks)...as a result i have only 11 games in it..

 

 

If you can get it hull down and use the turret and make sure you are supported it works.. if not its ordinary?..ive seen some great games in it  by other players V tier10 tanks so it does do well if you do it right..

 

eg; This guy top on XP in a 357 (Bottom tier)http://wotreplays.eu/site/4513014?secret=bdd3f4ea425b6129fcdbb97fa6eb805c

 

 

But non the less i would rather play the IS3...it feels less 'Vunerable' to me.

Saw already some "special" people in their new Defender`s today. It clearly is an idiot magnet.

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

 

one-shot from 100% to zero?

I will try :trollface:

 

 

I will not buy it, as I already have a russian HT crew trainer (Churchill III)

and too many premium tanks I could possibly play during a session.

I got it when it was on sale for the first time, but I really didn't play it much, especially because I don't like the view range. I don't really like it though..
