I am sure that from the perspective of people sat in an office/ similar venue that releasing a new vehicle for free seems like an excellent idea, however in reality it creates matches with 10+ M10 RBFMs per team.

 

I can not complain in the context of kills as these vehicles are easy prey for my Panther/ M10, but the gripe I have is how it breaks the dynamic of matches effectively turning them into even greater camp fests than they already were.

 

On the plus side, 100,000 credits per match/ slaughter and great gains for Crew XP. :B

It's the same with every marathon.  Give it a week and you will hardly see any at all.

I guess WG has tons of stats telling them that the game needs a lvl 5 td. Fresh player needs to learn about invis kills etc. But it will get easily countered when when lowlevels learn to survive in this game is play russian tanks and free xp with fort knox pacxkages.

As homer said, everytime they give away a free tank there is a couple of weeks where you will see tons of them. Then people realise it's trash and stop playing it/sell it. Some people play it until they Ace or 3 mark it and then sell it etc.

 

Same with current state of tier X battles. 4/5 FV 183s per side is not uncommon atm. Give it a couple weeks and they'll start dying off.

I get your point, but no no it won't.

Way too much fun imagining the rage at the other end when you've knocked 99% of full health off a tank in one shot or even better knackered a bobject.

I have found my new love.

 

Just need a fort knox or three to keep up with the credit drain.

The mission also created a love of the Luchs 11 games today and yes some of the new TDs have been there but also loads of light tanks hunting them

Best so far was 14 light tanks and 6 TDs

Most of the Light tanks were the Luchs

 

I could have avoided it but am playing the historical missions so tier 4-6

Yes it will, because those tanks aren't new and they were in the game for a long time and we haven't seen a situation where we had teams full of those TDs. They are fun and novel, but there are many more more versatile tanks and so in the end people for other tanks.

My post was humour clearly.

Don't take everything native English speakers say so seriously.

I agree, when I unlocked the FV4005 it was all I played for a good week.

 

Now I only touch it when I'm angry or frustrated. It's fun, but the novelty does eventually wear off.

 

Some time soon, they will have 5/6games in a row with silly critical hits or zero damage shots (once watched Daki fire HESH at an E5 track and it ate ALL the damage) and they will get frustrated and putit down for a while.

Its always like this when they give or sell one tank. With the T45-85M was even worst, but now its normal again.
