No gold offer, "cheaper" offer is 45 € for the t44, 35 € for the turtle.

Strangely I can apply a -15% coupon on the turtle but not on the t44 ?

 It starts as a bad joke or an old fairytale but it's our offer of the weekend.

Bad joke indeed, after what happened recently.

T-44-100, good tank imho. But this is a tad expensive for tier 8 medium premium tank.

 

TS-5 is better than the Turtle Mk 1 because of it's larger speed and bigger alpha, albeit a less accurate gun. Alpha is very important for TD's compared to DPM, but high DPM makes sense for British TD's! This tank is alright, but almighty it is slow as heck and thus will be bullied by arties a lot, if spotted. 

 

Buy turtle mk 1 only if you need a crew trainer for British TD line, otherwise it is pain and tears for credits due to its slow speed. Then again, you can buy this if you are into slow, armored TD's with low alpha. It's up to you.

 

I hope next sale will be vk 75.01, hwk 30 or kanonejadgpanzer 105 :)

You are daily posting this request, i guess you don't know, that vk 72.01 was on sale at the very end of last year.

T44-100 is good in frontline after Projetto 46 that is no.1. In randoms because of many tier x games gold ammo is needed and is not so good credit maker in competitive gameplay.

I like Projetto 46 and T44-100 but only in frontline. In randoms my favorite credit maker is Skorpion (with binos and optics)

T44-100 is a good tank, no wonder the high price.

You guys mean VK75... not 72 which is Tier 10.

Be warned, though - both the 75.01 (which you probably meant) and the Kanonenjagdpanzer are very poor tanks. Only the HWK is decent, though no real match for the LT 432.

As to today's offers - the T-44-100 is very good, but not as good as the Progetto, and it is horribly expensive. I don't have the Turtle, but I suspect it is too expensive for what it is. If you want a good assault-gun type of TD, get the TS-5.

The pricing is due to the original marathon tokens though.

I would buy only two more premiums which I'd love to see in my garage: 

- Alpine Tiger (for the look of course, otherwise 112 is better)

- Type 59 (Hype 59!)

 

There was time when I wanted to buy Type 62 as well, but I found out that I really suck in my lights (even more than with other classes) and I have LT-432 so it would be totally irrelevant to own it and I would barely play it.

KJP 105 is pretty decent imo.

Why the hell is 44-100 at that inflated price?! Sure it is a good med, but nothing dominantly OP or downright broken. If i remember correctly it was previously always sold for either 72 or 74 in my national currency, i can't quite remember which of the two, and the last 2 sales it is at 82,90. Does it sell that well for WG to raise the price? Heck, even the Progetto is cheaper.

Neither.

 

One is an artificially handicapped turret-less TD and the other is a Tier 8 medium that has only 190mm (247 premium) of pen while frequently seeing enemies wit 250mm+ of armor.
