It's a matter of principle, they're making fools of us. They said they'd never sell it again...shame they couldn't keep that promise.

 

Also, you don't know how OP it is until you've owned it...believe me I've got one.

You see Boris, when we say we will not say sale anymore we mean will not sell anymore for a while until we do sell, because vodka is good, da, and vodka needs money, da, so we sell for money and get vodka, da.

They said that they do not have future selling plans for Defender. Which means that at the time they wasn't going to sell it any time soon.

There is something even better than "We will never sell the Defender again"

 

Only 5% of all fired shells are premium ammo.

Wargaming are breaking promises all the time but somehow it is only a problem with the Defender and the Mutant.

Just because someone driving a Defender is not skilled enough to beat a Lowe it dosent mean its not above all the other T8 tanks, yeah, you can beat it no ptoblem, the driver is worth more than the tank, but if he was a player of your caliber he would've beten you, no quescion about it.

While I think the Defender is a tank that they are selling for obvious reasons, that Wargaming have "some quirks" and that the Defender is terrible for game balance in general and team-based modes in particular - did they ever state that they would never sell it again?

 

I'm pretty sure that Kandly once stated that there were no plans to sell it for the time being. That was, strictly speaking, not false. It took a while before they sold it again on EU. Doesn't seem like the backlash that caused that statement lasted very long, but well.

It's a bit hard to find the original source, but a certain Mr. Jingles should be a pretty solid source:

Pervy, after all this time do you REALLY have any faith in WG? I mean it's not an isolated case or anything, they've already demonstrated they can't be trusted just like most of us proved we're here because there's no viable alternative. They did sell the Defender 3 months ago, you just had to gamble it.

 

Who knows, maybe next month they'll sell the E25?

I like how WG fuc*s it's players over and over again. Last 2 examples,shitty servers and poor optimization for WOT classic,and bringing defender for god knows what time after promising for not selling it ever again.I am truly disgusted of wargaming. Don't start me on gold shells,historically inaccurate premiums that made just to milk money,and god awful servers in last few months.

You can't back that up because they never said it.  Which makes it your pants which are on fire.

Do you have a source for this? Did a quick search and found an article from The Daily Bounce back in October

 

"Wargaming mentioned before they would like to bring the vehicle back to sale, but the community was quite loud against it, so the question remains, would like to see it back?

A very reliable source of mine has confirmed Wargaming has plans to bring the vehicle back on sale, for the European server, very soon, in fact so soon that is from November 1 to November 5, a limited time sale that will enable anyone who doesn’t have one a chance to get one more vehicle in their garage."

Just wait and see, it's going to be a great April 1st joke when they changed all the purchased Defenders into AMX 40s with duck yellow camo on Monday.
