It's a bit weird and you could notice some confusion in this thread about boxes but i guess that's because it's a first for WG to partner with twitch.

 

I wonder if it is because a lot of people were just signing up to the free trial for the loot box and then cancelling?

The fact is, if you never actually want to buy it don't remove it from your garage. As per regulation when (if ever) the Amazon - Wargaming contract expires, the tank will be credited to you permanently for free. This only applies to the Tiger 2H rental pack ONLY (and probably future such vehicle only rentals not included in the loot), not the other rentals from packs.

This is sweet, since I bought Prime "for the kids programs" for my son. Or at least that's what I told my wife. :trollface:

Could be or could be that they're starting to really work their partnership during summer!

What kids programmes are they offering? Might need to use that excuse with my wife… :harp:

Well, most benefits of Amazon Prime are designed to keep you in, so it's just logical they do it this way.

Also AFAIK WG had a similar deal with some telco in russia in the past (users having access to some T-44 premium variant as long as they have a contract with that specific telco)

It will be a fun tank but I'm wondering how it stacks up to the VK4503. Last time I saw the TigerII (H) got nerfed in the gun stats quite a bit so at least it pays for the armour upgrade now.

 

The whole problem with the Tiger II itself is that we nowadays have a Tiger II in the game, it's just in the French tree and called the Mle49. That is basically what the Tiger II should be in this game in terms of armour so at least this premium on Tier 7 will be a better placement.

The VK is a decent machine at Tier 7.... but a free tank is a free tank.

 

Same with the Tiger Pz VI, should be better than what was/is (talking when I first stating playing, no idea what its like now)

Yeah for sure, going to give it a shot, free is free :)

 

I was just wondering if it will be interesting and different from the VK4503 because the initial gun stats basically made it a VK4503 with more armour but less mobility which does not do much to differentiate it.

So, does this mean I get to play TWO of my favorite tanks non-stop? :)

Quite a massive armour upgrade though, angle it well and you need probably over 200mm pen to go through reliably, and considering how much the O-Ni blocks at tier 7 with like 175mm of armour, its going to be very strong against tier 5-7.

Well, it has the mobility to go with that armour though as it will be sluggish *AND* it doesn't have a stupid DERP gun *and* weak spots (LFP/Cupola) so at least it's much better balanced :)

Cobra 6

 

Weakspots on tier 8, not so much on tier 7, unangled lower plate is like 160-170, and cupola is about the same, about 165, so most tier 6s will need to spam premium at it. 

 

Plus the O-Ni is massive, super slow and unagile, with a derpy long reload gun, this has none of that, it has decent speed, decent gun handling and decent DPM. 

 

People for ages have been saying the Tiger 2 should be lowered in tier but I think that armour layout will turn out too strong, aside the O-Ni, and the T29 turret, none of the other tier 7 heavies really have much armour, certainly not Tiger 2 levels.

You are right the angling department but you know as well that 80% of the players have no clue and will present you with a flat target.

 

With the latest nerf to it's stats I did have a feeling that it was pretty well balanced at Tier 7, don't know.

Looking at it now however it has better aimtime then VK4503 and slightly more DPM, but the ground resistance values are pretty terrible especially on softer terrain.

 

I do feel that for it's armour it should not have better aimtime and DPM then the VK4503 though.

So far, the only constant element in the care packages were (at least) two rentals, one tier 8 and one of a lower tier. And the medal of course.

 

 

 

Btw, Echo is released today at 19:00 CEST.

Ah good wondered what that was just says '11' on my twitch prime, bit of a shame they did it at this time though, everyone and their mother will be claiming it so it'll take ages to turn up.

The King Tiger will be a rental, but the rental period will be renewed each month until the care packages are cancelled, at wich point you'll get to keep it forever.
