Thanks WG, really thanks, i really enjoy this game. Buy the way u are treating your players is monsterous, even players that bought loot boxes and have enough gold to buy the VK, stille have to spend another 30 euro's. What a Christmas gift, besides all the calendar deals were available for gold, this ofcourse cant be. U promised us one final blast of a deal. Half of the player thinking the WT auf E100(p) was coming in the calendar. U have really let me and all other players down WG. Good job. Really. Thanks.

Stick a decent crew and VStabs in a 112 and it's more fun than a VK could ever be

 

No Tier 10s to deal with makes a massive difference, especially when stuff like frontline is on

Plus having a decent armour profile helps you learn that part of the game

Ha ha, Merry Christmas to you too, lol. Well lets be honest, if WG as a successful business venture did sell the Defender rather than this,imagine how much money they would make, but the additional FU to the community of not even being able to get it for gold, that is a troll too far, especially for this 'rare' tank, as jokes go, this is hilarious:D

 

The Defender has been in the game long enough. Most who want it have it, those who don't still won't buy it. The sales would be minimum.

So the reloading speed isn't that big of a problem? While it has good alpha, it's reloading feels like it could really weight this down quickly if it's outnumbered.

 

Not really, The alpha works, and being a 128mm it's quite good at ammo racking tanks. The tank is mobile enough to keep up with things like the Defender but not so mobile that you'll find yourself alone and surrounded, and if you do you should really work on your awareness.

Using a vstab on a 112 is mistake number one. The standard accuracy is appalling and the aim bloom is horrific, you are just gimping yourself by not using a GLD.

 

Also, the 112 has heavium armour. The hull is far weaker than the VK and the turret isn't exactly made of pig iron. PLus it has two cupolas that are easy hits.

 

The VK turret has decent frontal armour and only the cupola on one side, when sidescraped correctly it's almost impenetrable.

Huh, might actually have gotten it then if WG didn't feel the need to only make it purchasable with actual money, instead of all the gold we've got from their loot boxes.

Admittedly that's a bit awkward of them.

 

But I don't see anything wrong with a balanced tank being in the advent calendar I must say

Pretty much the only tier 8 premium I still want (before you say anything, I liked the Mauerbrecher and 3 marked it)...and ofc they don't sell it for gold.

 

God f*cking damn it.

Give them a couple updates, they'll put it in the tech tree.

Gee thanks WG for telling us what a special tank will be on the calendar only to make it only available to purchase with real money when literally everything on the calendar has been available for gold until this. Almost worse than when you had the "rare, limited" ELC EVEN & T26E5 on the calendar and then a couple of days later you added them in the tech tree permanently.
Either way, enough complaining... (Still didn't get my TOG II* on the calendar though, must be the worst part about this)


Is the VK 75.01 K any good? it seems like it has good alpha and really armour but it's reloading speed seems atrocious, it's just 2 seconds faster than my KV-2.

 

Wait, do you want to suggest elc even is available in tech tree?  Where?

Is the santa crew member for real? If so, do I have to log into the game today?

 

As for the advent calendar, nothing I wanted. Was tempted by the type 62, very briefly.

The uh... French tree.

 

As for the VK75, its a fine, balanced tank.

Not my best tier 8 heavy, but definitely not my worst.

Neither do I but I suppose it is still a bit of a disappointment considering the calendar haven't been that good this year and they did tell us to stick around till 25th cause of a special "rare" tank. Which did set the expectations a bit higher then they were needed to be, I mean I held off on buying the TS-5 cause of that very reason, which I do now regret.

To be honest I logged on today and saw the VK and my first thought was "How boring" Ohh and a shout out to anyone who looked at the HWK 30 yesterday and thought meh not getting that, well, you really should have bought it.

Best Xmas present ever by wargaming.

 

Seriously guys just step back and think about it...………………………………………. this tank is so garbage and you can only buy it with cash so who in their right mind would buy it? This means everyone gets to keep their money in their pocket this festive season and not in wargammings money grabbing we don't give a damn about the community vaults.

 

So THX wargaming for making us all have that extra little bit of cash this xmas period to enjoy with family, friends and loved ones.

Well [Edited] Wargaming scammers - I've not bought any of the caendar tanks mainly because there were not to much interesting tanks (except the AMX 13 57 and T5S) - BUT I did firmly hold my wallet for the last final "super offer". Just because I expected it to be something extra special. Not like the rumored Waffle but at least something extra.

 

But THIS?!?  Seriosly? My first thougts when i logged in this morning was just like "WTF?!? DID I JUST SHAVE MY BALLS FOR THIS?!?"

It may not be outright swearing, but the intention is very clear, so I've removed it.

Still don't understand the reasoning behind the moaning.

 

What did you expect them to say? "Buy on the 24th because you'll be dissappointed with whats tomorrow?" It's called marketing.

 

What it's a bad offer just because it's not overpowered? It's a bad tank because 48%ers say so? (It's actually a rather decent tank)

 

Either buy it or don't, £25 for a well balanced tier VIII premium heavy is actually quite a good price, but stop whinging because you're not going to be tearing around the battlefield in something broken.

 

Oh, and an FYI. Wargaming have nowhere ever mentioned or hinted at what tank would be on the 25th. Rare is correct, as this is only the second time this tank has been available.
