I guess you're admitting that one of the five tanks that are back in the shop is not great

Honestly, by the title I was expecting for a KV-5 offer. Or maybe KV-220 / M6A2E1(Mutant).

5 mediocre tanks
50 TP is not a Defender it's weak front hull makes it weak
VK 75 all tho can take some bounces too many frontal weakspots. large lower plate, front turret cheeks and cupola. a russian tank can snap shot your turret and get penned.
RAAC the only time that hull frontal armor is good is if you stay at distance and angle it. But you cant angle it because you made sure to remove sideskirts so even tier 6 can pen you while you face your opponents. The moment you angle a bit your side becomes the weakspot, like a STRV.
Somua. It's ok when it comes to reloading your clip speed, but the armor is not that great and sacrifices 10 km/h speed for it. it's better than the 50 100 that's for sure. who's reload is its death sentence and has no armor.
TS-5. Don't have it, probably because I hated T 95 experience. Don't want the tier 8 version.

Lol, veterans... Nice joke WG! The oldest of them was released in 2018.
Next time pick a better name for your special WG, or at least put in the Lowe or the SP, the only decent "veteran" premiums on sale too(or maybe the Type 59, but that seems to be "surprise mechanics" exclusive).

As for the tanks offered, it is a solid selection, none of them OP, but not underperforming either.

Just one comment, if I may. About the RAAC, the side skirts do not provide additional spaced armor on any other centurions, tech tree or the Prima.

I think you only get that in the high end purchase and not in the standard package

Not content with selling outdated premiums,they now sell 5  in one go,the money grab is clearly an unstoppable runaway train,and this from a company who seem intent on ruining their own game.

 

But alas,whatever we think matters not a jot to our WG overlords.

#walletclosed ...and finally even premium days are running out :great:

 

Might consider start spending again to support upkeep of servers and Victors spaceship should EU servers wishes actually be listened too.  For a start perhaps look into how some tanks are balanced, limit arty to a max of one each side, balance team compositions to be more even in regard to tanks/wheelies ..and maps...plz.  Just what is it with WG devs and corridors?

I'm guessing WG may be experiencing cash flow problems.

A new tier 8 premium per month.

Now a sale with 5 premiums.

Perhaps not enough new players joining who would purchase premium tanks.

The "old timers" probably have their garages full of tier 8 premiums.

 

I really don't know; just guessing.
