Can't use my 30% off coupon, so no. What is the point of these coupons anyway.

Named after the Battle of Hastings, which was a decisive loss by the Brits. They failed to protect their island....

 

Buyer, you are properly warned...

Do not buy this tank. The british light line needs fixing.

Oh nice. This one doesn't suck, unlike the tech tree tanks. That's nice. It actually has a workable amount of shells and an acceptable DPM for it's tier. What a nice coincidence that I can pay real money for this one, unlike getting the bad tanks in the tech tree for free. 

 

Just buff the British lights already. Come on WG. I'd rather play artillery than grind through the British light tree.

Oh look, another tank line where the tanks itself are mediocre, and then the tier 8 premium just somehow is the best.

 

WG don't you ever change.

Oh, look it's the ,should be in the tech tree, tier 8 British light tank!

Seriously, why anybody would buy it?

Play it randoms? No, at this point you should only buy OP premiums.

Crew training? No, just grind 2mil with the OP premium you bought and buy a crew book! And use it on the crew of you Super Conqueror because the British lights suck a**!

As a former collector I find it hard to motivate myself to buy any new tanks since most of the premiums I bought in the past is power-creeped into oblivion. 

Also the tier 8 reward tanks we got from CW-campaigns haven't got any love at all. 

Fix this and we might talk in the future if this game has any.

Hey! It's *ANOTHER* premium which is blatantly better than the same tier free version!

 

But WoT is not becoming P2W, honestly.....

Why the late release? Those of us wanting to play the line when it came already have good crews by now. I don't get why they didn't start with the premium and then introduce the tech-tree a month or some weeks later. Surely the road they picked means less sales.

So wanted this line to be decent. but in good old WG fashion.  They sent a couple of FSB agents Tourists to the UK part of the design team and Novichok'd them.

Why fix the line when you can sell a premium that is straight up better than the tech tree version.

 

The Senlac has better dpm, better gun stats albeit less penetration, HE with the same 280 damage, even though it's lower caliber, has way better rate of fire and penetration, 20m more view range, and more damn ammo capacity and potential total damage.

 

The Senlac has all the buffs that the regular tech tree needs... Heck, it's even better than the tier IX minus the penetration, and it's not even an overpowered tank compared to other nation's lights, but it's so much better than the british because they were bad from the start.
