Sold the IS-7, T-44 and the ST-1.

 

Bought the T-series heavy that I have always wanted.

 

I feel my T32 crew gets a new home for a while.

So you are the reason why the forum does not work.

Ya I have a T32 also and... even though I don't really like heavy tanks, the T32 was one of the few I always liked and well, this is much the same only can make credits with it and it has 250-300 pen and a 400 alpha gun which when combined with that stronk turret reads a really nice and reliable hull down way of grinding credits imo. Plus I had built up lots of credits over the last few days and a strong pen/alpha T8 premium for credits instead of gold? Thank you kindly.

Me too. I don't like the black skin, but it is what it is. Didn't want to spend any gold on it, but have plenty of credits anyway.

I think the black T34 looks awesome. I did skip it though, already having the regular one in my garage. But I'm happy for all of you who got one. It's a solid credit maker, if not actually a very good tank though. :) 

 

And btw, the turret is not the same as T32.

8.5M IIRC

It was a really good price, I think... but I simply didn't want it. Watched the counter go down from 20k to 0 just to see how fast it'd sell :D.

8.5m credits for a T8 Prem is a good price....


Even if it's out the meta.

Besides can melt it down into a discount for the next time there is a trade in if you hate it!

I was watching the T34B sell like mad. That was fun. My T34 sits in garage and hasn't been played for two years, or so. I fear people will find that it is a very mediocre tank that got power crept rather badly.

It's a decent tank for 8,5 million credits. Yup, snatched one instantly, coz my only other US Heavy tank crew trainer is the T14 ... which is crap.
Had one battle in it, liked it. Should be good investment in the long run. This is only the 2nd tank I've brought from the Black Market so far, the previous one being the Black Dog.

Multiple reasons, at least for me.

 

1) It cost credits, not RL money or gold.

2) I only have the M4 Rev as my only tier 8 prem. I have a better crew for the T34. And to me, the tank seems more reliable due to having armor.

3) I can play a tier 8 hulldown tank without firing APCR (cries in T32).

4) Got a nice excuse to sell tanks I never play.

Got T34 and T34-B now :D

 

Had credits not doing anything and by the time I get to another T10 tank (Which is a LONG way away) I will have plenty of creds again.

For credits I do, I mean its a really bad tank, but it is a tier 8 premium that barely ever needs to use premium ammo to pen stuff and people are basically getting it for free. 

 

For a free to play account it would be a very good investment, I think any premium tank for credits probably is as they will make those credits back and then some.

I have plenty of tier 8 premiums and dont need to spend 8.5 mil credits on a one that I will never want to play :D

 

Hence - didnt buy.

Well for me it made sense because

 

1) Like I said, the T29 is probably the only heavy I actually like so this is along the same lines only it's a premium and 50 more pen, about enough to punch through most things.

2) It cost me credits not gold and it's a T8 premium not a lower tier so actually a viable way of making credits

3) If I can sell some higher tier tech tree tanks I've lost favor with and that generally lose credits in exchange for having something higher tier that actually makes credits, mores the better and I can always buy the tech tree tanks again if needs be, made all the easier by having premium tanks that make credits, so, spend credits to make credits.

4) Being a premium tank it gives me options a tech tree can't. I can either use it to train crew from another same nation heavy or I can use it grind credits OR... and here's the best bit, I can play it seriously, run it with food and shoot some premium ammo and while I won't make much credits, I won't lose much either so what I'll have is a souped up really competitive version of this T8 running with vents, rammer and vstab along with food and 300 pen that also has almost full view range and as sweet a tank as it gets combined with the good crew I have for so... if the tank isn't all that great as standard, it should be a hell of a lot more competitive running as good as it can be but, unlike a tech tree tank that running that hot would cost me 40-50k credits per battle, this probably won't cost me anything to play that souped up. Good choices, worth it imo
