Kinda odd wording.. not everyone got the tank. :P

 

"The T-50-2 is now back in World of Tanks, and it will reward each and every one of our grizzled commanders for their patience and unconditional love."

 

What counts as "grizzled"?

I did not get it because I registered in 2015. I would be dishonest claiming I'm not jelly or butt hurt that I didn't get it but it doesn't really matter because I don't really like playing t6. Though I would have been good for skirmishes probably.

It's actually a derivative of "gray streaked hairs" and a common reference to older, more experienced, hardened.. Men in their 50-60. 

Although most of the time we tend to associate the term with even older , tougher .. Think : Clint Eastwood (or even Chuck Norris now)

 

Note: not to be confused with neckbeards, which are also older greyed men, but overweight and many of them are UNIX guru's. 

Therefore it would be a bad idea to call Clint Eastwood a neckbeard... Not to mention what would happen to you if you called Chuck a neckbeard.

Dont worry, it only takes a few weeks and WG greed machine is waking up and you WILL be able to buy it. This is a FACT.

T-50-2 feels a little bit sluggish to be honest, it is not going the full 72km/h as it did before.

I like it! it's a great fun tank.

 

It almost feels like my old 0.9.17 chaffee is back. Though the chaffee was much faster (okay chaffe was a little slower in accelleration).

This tank is like a super high speed matilda :)

 

Tank you WG

I think you mean 'prodigal son.'

 

Anyway, well played WG for a decent freebie - it's no Crommy but it's a decent machine. You've done some really crappy things in the last year or two so thanks for this.

I REALLY hope this isn't a precursor to offering the T-50-2 for sale in the Premium Shop, Wargaming!

You've managed to build up a fair bit of goodwill recently I feel, but a cynical move like that would ruin all your efforts... :sceptic:

They can't do that without giving it a premium income. I bet they'll never do that, as then 50% of the game population has a tier 6 premium without spending any money. It would ruin the economy (from WG's perspective) and ruin the tier 6 MM if they ever give it additional income.

back in the days it had a tier X credits repair costs. It never was a cheap tank.

Well they could make the one they sell a premium version, like with the KV-2, and let the gift version stay.
