This tank is odd-looking but definitely dangerous.

How to update it in-game from the Lansen C?

 

Edit: Nevemind, just saw a Christmas miracle, Lansen C flashed into a TS-5.

Except for the max. speed this is just CRAZY OP tank, isn't it? However, I would absolutely accept it though, for the players who have earned it in campaigns, marathons, tournaments etc.! Is it fair to place it in the shop for any newbie? WG has to reward and distinguish dedicated and veteran players to ensure they have fun and reason to play for a few years more - not humiliate and disrespect them. Am I wrong although being only a modest weekend player myself?

It's OP only if you're better than a player that is better than a player that is better than an average player.

What kind of dedication are you speaking about? I meet red players playing it who were probably sending tank after tank into battles, till they got the required amount of experience-points to fulfill the missions. Following your pseudo logic, there shouldn’t be any SU-130s and Progetto46s in the Loot Boxes at all.

So T-44-100 will be available only for real money? Then I think it will be better to spend on some more lootboxes, I'm itching for that sakura-camo.

That's what i've been doing on duplicates, just a shame that unlike last year you do not get the crews. :(

Before this thread gets contaminated with the usual "omg this tank is so OP" nonsense, let's point out a few things, as can be seen here for example:

https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/T28-TS-5-comparison/

and here: http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/601736-ts-5-vs-t28/

 

So basically: this tank is a slightly faster T28 with better DPM, but with way worse accuracy and a gigantic weak lower plate.

What this means is that you'll probably excel in close range combat -if you manage to hide that lower plate.

In open maps you will probably struggle , as mediums and light tanks will outmanoeuvre you and feast on thy butt.

If the Advent Calendar predictions are correct, then there's still a chance that it'll be the T-44-100 tomorrow available in-game for gold & then the E-25 from 25th Dec-1st Jan for real money. If that happens, I'll be more than happy :great:

As for today's offer, yeah, I'll take that - I had a break from the game this year so missed the marathon (well, I got to Stage I before I quit) and sort-of regretted not getting this earlier (and not having to spend real money on it (directly...) helps as always) :)

this thing is for the new way to play td (or rather the only whay on a lot of maps), so many corners, dips in the terrain, single bushes(so enemy can easly know where that shot came from), safe corridors that run alongside the entire maps. :facepalm:

with this thing you just rol up almost in the other tanks face, then pull the trigger (matrix style, trinity vs mr smith aka 'dodge this!' or else you wont hit any weakspots, with 0.44 accuracy (with about 75% RnG on top of that) good luck with that. :sceptic:

There never was a requirement to “earn” it, you could simply buy it on day one of the marathon by opening your wallet. No need to even play a single game for it. So your criticism is completely unfounded.
