The French like to sing that nobody will take the Lorraine region, and with this tank, no one will.

I'm not german or french, but before you make these statements, you might want to look up the history of the region Lorraine.

Particularly the back and forth this region experienced in the past 200yrs between Imperial Germany and the French Republic, and the subsequent bad blood that came from it, which extended to the more .... nasty part of WW2.

 

Bottom line is, you might not want to hit at nationalistic stuff when it comes to it, some dogs are better left sleeping .... it has the same 'wtf' potential to some ppl as mailing little statues of Cromwell as gifts to the Irish. :)

It's better to just say 'this french staple' or 'typical french tank' ... without hinting the nationalistic cord when it comes to that issue.

I really like mine but I can't help but feel Progetto power creeps it.

 

Traditional Autoloaders are in trouble if they miss a shot because of the long reload but it is NP in an Autoreloader.

 

Still L40t is decent overall, high pen, good mobility, gun depression and view range. Just beware the wet tissue armour.

The title caught me out and surprised me,seeing as we will soon get the last week of FL, I thought the Defender itself would be up for sale,I could never make his thing work, although it has decent speed.

The titles are sometimes meant to be witty word-plays that are based on certain tank's characteristics, or in this case, it's name.

Personally, I don't think that the person that wrote that wanted to spark a political discussion.  :)

I really hate and despise nationalists (whichever country, including my own).

I remember when I made a witty word-play and got banned for a week.

DO NOT BUY THIS TANK!!

 

It's a total scam and all you get is rage. WG made sure that stats on paper mean nothing when it comes in real game. On paper this tank has very good accuracy but in game a KV-2 with the troll gun has better accuracy than Lorr.

What his intent was, and what was achieved are 2 different things.

Same goes for the 'invasion by object 244 of europe' and selling premium comets in another world of tanks game with the cromwell skin ... in an event associated with the irish (might want to look at the history of cromwell with the irish).

 

Do you think it's too much to ask for the EU office to have some level of independence in choosing it's events, titles .... some regionalization .... for a 1b dollar company ?
