Poor if this is the shape of things to come WG. Why does the cash "offer" come with gold and costs more? Just like the Chinese tank yesterday?

 

Why not let cash buyers get just the tank instead of limiting the tank only offer for in game?

at least we now know that we can focus on non-wot things this season and look for actually enjoyable stuff to do.

6500 is full price, it's a mediocre light tank and a crew trainer for the worst light tank tech tree in the game.

 

The crew doesn't even fit in the tier 10!

That's the point... :(

 

On the other hand, I like LHMTV, as I like ELC EVEN 90 too.

In mine opinion Manticore would be quite possible to play with if it has [1] some more amount of ammunition and [2] that 3rd crew member (for that reason You mentioned and for not stopping with full health but with both crew members being hit).

Even if it's good, You will find what bad to say...

When I saw the title I was becoming excited that we get Centurion 5/1 already at the beginning of the calendar. But now I can see that you keep the good stuff for the last days - at least I hope.

Actually unlike most of the folk posting, I actually want this tank but I don't see why I should be playing into an inflated bundle like WG are actually doing me a favour.

 

In fact this Xmas "offer" costs more than when the tank was first released as it was sold alone for cash.

 

And no I don't see why I should buy gold just to get it in game either.

I am pretty sure the real Heavy Metal will start next week:) This is just a warm up, not very exciting warm up i must say but it is one.

Ty for the heads up. Was semi tempted to buy it for ingame gold,but had forgot about the crew issue. So yea I'll skip it. Thanks for saving me 6500 gold.

The price in gold is actually not inflated, 6500 gold cost 44.34 in my currency(that is 22,74 euro) which is pretty standard price for a tier 8 light, but yeah, it would have been more convenient to have another cash offer for tank only along with the bundle and ingame gold offers.

I've got no need for the gold , especially as Xmas loot boxes just around the corner will potentially force a lot of gold down people buying into it. 

 

Every previous event, whether that's the Summer Sale or other Advent Calender events have not had gold inflated bundles.

 

Why is it different this year?

 

People can call it negative or whatever but I think I'm making a valid point.

I might actually pick this one up as I'm a sucker for light tanks and have about 40K gold still from last years loot boxes.

I remember when Senlac had its debut, everybody on the forum was crying that, again, the premium alternative is clearly better than its tech tree peer - WG money grabbing! I have not started GB LT tree yet, so I truly wanted this tank. But when I checked the WR of this branch, including this premium one, holy s**t! Better save my gold for the French wheeler.
 

With regard to the crew issue on the top tier, since the training mission accomplished, you can sell the Senlac and assign the redundant gunner to Churchill I or Grant.:trollface:

I had more gold ... but ... the Black Market Guy grabs the most of them ...

... now I have not enough gold to buy even this little tank.

 

For you, is time to spent your gold because the next Xmas loot boxes are going to be available soon enough (probably just after the end of this week) ...
