KV-2R on sale. So maybe the HE rebalance IS happening after all?

Great tank think I payed £27 for it before primarily for the bia crew and I hadn't played KV2 before. 

 

I find it very useful if I haven't completed the kill 5 tanks part of the daily premium time missions when I have premium time. 

 

Please note, the tech tree KV2 is pretty much identical but obviously needs it's own crew. Fun tank especially in a platoon

Yes, same thing. I have 30% off coupon, but I can only choose the standard premium tanks from which I have almost all. No gold, no exp bonuses, no special offers.

I'm not interested in paying extra for the Warhammer name. A naked version at a regular price and a money transaction will occur. 

And "Valhallan"?

It's because Games Workshop also want a piece of the cake. Warhammer is immensely popular and their products are far from cheap henceforth a immensely higher price for a tier 6.

Very nice credit-maker as a tier 6. If you like KV-2 from tech tree, you will love ® one :)

For the same price, You can buy one from at least 6-7 tier 8 premium medium tanks.. 

So yeah, when I saw premium KV2 on sale, I told myself hek yeah, but when I saw the price, I said HEK NO!

You used to, back before WG could contain their greed yet again.

 

I've had 2-3 discount coupons valid on *EVERYTHING* back when coupons first started.

 

As for KV-2R, it's a KV-2 which is fun, and premium, so if you like the KV-2, get this one.

 

Granted, it is a bit tacky to start selling this so shortly after announcing a complete HE rebalance and then scrapping it again. Since events are planned months/weeks in advance and the supposed HE rebalance update is so close one could construe this as deliberate.

It might be the best way to make WG pay if they still want to implement the HE system, rename that tank the trojan horse   :trollface:

27,43 eur is the price.

But I really dont get their marketing strategy, they would rather earn 0 than 19,20 eur?!

Either they are stupid or stupid, which is it?

To get the premium boosts.

And some players will still be interested in a good tank with a 6 BIA crew and the prospect of reuse their today's KV2 crew : they literally get 12 crews to retrain.

Plus this story of HE rework that won't concern this one.

 

Lol now I almost want to buy it :(

Keep in mind that both companies (Wargaming & Warhammer company) need to share a cut in sales, since licensing is probably not cheap.

Then sell a version without the style, since it is something there isn't fixed on the tank.

In that case, I suspect a lot of players would be complaining about a literal copy-paste tank being sold, only featuring crew transfers and bonuses. Which in my opinion is even worse than selling it with a licensed skin.

I don't understand anyone that would buy this. Maybe if it was a tier VIII I'd myself go for it but it's a tier VI tank that takes 0 effort to grind and you just need 4 milion credits to get full BiA on it. Complete waste of money, you're basically paying 25,48 euro just for a clown skin and little bit of no grinding. Especially now that you could get a free premium account to boost your grind from tank rewards. No wonders Wargaming doesn't respect us, they can just shove everything down our throats and there will always be donkeys that buy it. You're not going to earn much credits with it either, as it's a tier VI. You'd be better off buying something else and grinding regular KV-2 if you want seal club so bad...

WG I have an idea hear me out. Loads of people here are complaining that this tank has a Warhammer skin, but are probably the same that would indeed complain if a 'copy paste' KV2 with no skin was sold. So I have a great solution. A KV2 skin covered in pictures of saggy engorged tits, fresh nappies, dummies and images of Peppa pig and the Teletubbies. These are all things that make crying babies happy, so maybe it'll work here too. You could call it the KV2 (Waaah)
