It's almost like we're getting to buy tanks people were waiting to appear on the Black Market, must be a coincidence. :)

Why is it not possible to add several items in a cart instead of buying an item one by one in the premium shop ?

 

The regular shop is now more appealing than the black market. Good job WG to make one of your great idea irrelevant

If we were to have a full Season of Frontlines this year, I would have been really tempted to pick up one. Now I am not sure if I should spend more money on WOT this year. FL is the only mode that I really care for in the game as a main gaming mode. I do like other special modes like 7v7 etc., but FL is the serious one that I look forward to the most. Steel Hunter is okay, but what good are my premium tanks in the garage for that mode. SH took away half the year of my precious FL. Should I spend my money on more Tier 8 premiums for 4 weeks of FL??

 

BTW, I know the difference is cosmetic, but any pros and cons of picking up Defender vs. Obj. 252U?

For me 252u seems to work a lot better, maybe just because of cosmetic difference, as it has those mudflaps or whatever you call them, i can overangle more and peeps simply doesnt shoot at the weakest armor, because they dont see it visually :D maybe its just me, but thats how i feel about it. I didnt even need defender in the first place as i already had 252u, but it fell out of a lootbox played it a bit and left it in garage to collect dust.

WG must be desperate to get money, if they sell OBJ 252.

And even 20% coupon is active from tank rewards.

 

Imagine WG sell OBJ 252 during Black Market, via a licit. People would pay double price.

WG is making EA looking like a bunch of kindergarten kids!!!

I bet the Defender will be the next Skorpion G, will be sold every 2nd week or so!

Now, all we need to return to the shop again (after WG swearing that it will never again be sold) is the E25!

 

Come on, WG, we know you want to...

It is ok because wg sell this, so noone can complain against people that have it.

It is op only against tier 6 when is top tier. Gun handling is really bad and everyone know how to pen a defender.

I miss another tank from 20 meters when 95 % of the reticle was on the enemy tank. 

Work in frontline for base capture and look nice.

Like stated many times before it wasn't said E25 is going never to be sold again, just on "special occasions".

 

If these abominiations are back (if you think these are overarmored now let's just wait that Steve-buff that seems to be coming) why you can't just sell normal Type 59 again.

Like many said, why Defender was not auctioned from 25000 gold upwards is beyond me.

My poor Alpine Tiger will struggle when battles will be full of these OPwagons.

 

I have received my 252U from lootboxes but I would prefer the Defender skin. There is no option for buying only the skin or change, so I continue to use the 252U with the smelly socks camo. It matches with the tank and everything it represents. :D

No, those track plates does make the tank stronger. :trollface:
