The latest version of a British classic hides behind these doors: here comes the Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC!

...so Caernarvon AX tomorrow? Man, compared to last year this advent calendar is one massive let-down.

:(

And... Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC it is! So WG doesn't miss the opportunity to disappoint most of us :))


WG, if you plan to sell Caernarvon Action X tomorrow, don't! Update your game and sell something else or you will offer by far the most disappointing Advent calendar ever. You should offer something new.

Its disappointing that this year most of the tanks that appeared in advent calendar were the ones which are regularly on sale throughout the year. I think tanks like M6A2E1, KV5, T28EF 30 are kind of the right candidates for advent calendar which appear only once in a a year.

Though I appreciate that the tanks were available for gold which was a nice change and were first time available in the year :)

If that means the rumors are true, tomorrow will be the Caernarvon AX...

Wonder if the “available for gold” is behind the overwhelmingly meh calendar this year..?

 

WG will soon realise they made far less from the calendar this year than last year and undoubtedly will launch another stupidly OP Rashaaa tank in an insanely overcharged bundle/marathon to make up the loss and so the downward spiral continues.

 

It’s like watching a family member slowly being wasted by dementia, only remembering the earlier, happier times, blissfully blundering on, unaware there’s something seriously wrong.

Well there is the old : 'you can't please everyone' adage..

 

Considering the wealth of other 'Premiums' out there, especially Russian ones, I am glad that we have the chance to purchase the Centurion 5/1 and AX , just go look at the Premium shop for other vehicles, and compare it to the EU tanks on offer..

​​Important: The Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC is part of our Advent Calendar! Therefore, you can purchase it through the bundle below or directly in the game for 7,600.

Why do you think that tomorrow will be AX? Last three days in a row only British tanks? That would be stupid. Oh wait...

Well I was hoping the publicised predictions about the 5/1 and AX were wrong, but it doesn't look like they were, so a bit disappointed to see only 1 new tank this year. As Sushil points out above, I think WG missed an opportunity here by not including more items that hadn't been sold recently. Also, any tank with BIA crew like the Cromwell B sells well, but they are normally sold around VE day anyhow. I think WG should consider making special's for next year's advent (or earlier) where we can get BIA crews for the other nations (i.e. CZ, JP, FR, etc..). Admittedly there were 5 good crew potentially from Christmas missions and loot boxes, but WG only need to look at the figures for Berlin tanks to see that this would be a good idea. Also, I'd like to have seen more NEW tanks in the calendar...please prove my fears unfounded tomorrow ;)   
 

Meanwhile, for those unable to get to the game until later, today's mission. Once again, tier IV upwards, but must be done in one battle.

so that means Caernarvon AX tomorrow, most likely...a former marathon tank for the Christmas sale :sceptic:

well at least it was possible to use gold to purchase the calendar tanks...

I hope on 24th there will be something interesting. For now it was 23 days of dissapointment. Common WG, give me something interesting like HWK 30 or LT 432 or Aufkl Panther.
