It has quite a cheap price, whoever doesn't have it should get it now, 100% worth it!

Well that looks like a nice offer, good thing I haven't yet played the 10 battle rental WG gave me a while back so I can now test it properly.

I think I'm not saying this only because this was the tank I wanted to buy, but this is the first good offer in the calendar. 26€ (gold value) for a good medium tank is not too much in my opinion. I bought it, I really enjoy Centurion's gameplay. There will be only one more thing I would like to get - the double barrel Soviet beast. And festive level 10 with some additional female crew members and holiday camos.

I still have it as a rental with like 1 game left,

but I am put off by this offer a bit as I'd like to buy just the tank without the other stuff. :)

 

 

btw, what would happen to my rental tank if I decided to buy it in shop?

This tank 100% worth it. Has an amazing turret. Effective thickness better than german heavy Tiger ll.

I also had it as a rental and it simply became a normal prem tank.

It is a good tank.

 

But the price to buy it in game gives you NO discount, yet again!!!!

The price of the bundle is inflated with equipment and missions you don't need!!!!

 

Advent calender is getting more of a rip off every day!!!!

I like the mission of the day; 1,5 credits multiplier for five games (when top-7 on damage)

It's a very sexy model of a tank but I only get lukewarm from the Centurion I so won't be picking this up.

Actually, it means that if you have the rental tank, it would cost you 300 gold less since you don't need to buy the garage slot  ;)

Thanks for my morning laugh, no not the tank the tank is great I love it.

Its these advent calendar comparisons as if an advent calendar is something great.

No you do not get a free chocolate each day so you should get a discounted tank, you pay way more for the stupid advent calendar and would be better off buying a bar of chocolate and eating one piece a day.

Its the surprise element not the price.

 

Each day a surprise tank if you pay cash you get the tank plus extras and there is a discount on the total.

If you buy it in game you pay the basic price.

We know this we have always known this.

Ok let's check it. (I'm using website to convert currencies so it might be 1-2 eur difference)

 

The bundle costs 43eur.

The 5000 gold inside separately costs 18eur, 30 days of premium account costs 9,5eur.

 

So you're getting tier 8 premium tank, which some say is good I haven't tested it myself, for 15,5eur with 40 x5 missions included, full equipment and extra camo. And this somehow is a bad deal and a rip off? Ok...

 

This actually looks like it might be the first very good deal in the advent calendar, nice.

You can use the accumulated gold while buying this one and no real money; and you get _only_ the tank for it's Gold value price + free stuff - except the garage slot that you have to pay, though.

Yes, it's really noob friendly and with it you can learn the meaning of going "hull down". Gun depression is also plenty, and that 120mm upper plate with it's slope.. is really forgiving.

 

It's not a crazy credit maker, why? Well... the standard Sell costs.. 680cr! So, better make it count! They are however AP with 1020m/s: so, less speed-loss over distance (well, it will be rarely usefull though) and higher degrees of normalization :justwait:

 

Only downside: the crew has no BIA :(
