Why is this one better than the tech tree version?

Because it's Aussie. Also, game is P2W.

Could you please share with us why you don´t like the offer? Or is it because the tank´s performance on the battlefield? :)

Paying will not give you the victory... as you already know :)

Because

1) it's Premium ( can use any medium english crew, more exp, more credits ..)

2) in P2W fashion, it has the Centurion Mk7 hull (T9), so better engine, better gun handling (dispersion) and more important a decent UpperFrontPlate (5in vs 3in)

Ok, nice tank, but I'm pissed off because it is just flatout better than the tech tree Centurion:sceptic:

What do you think about the price of the offer?

 

Regarding P2W, you need hands to play WoT. All experienced players should know that buying a good premium tank doesn´t guarantee you the victory... it´s your skills which mark the difference.

Release this as a skin for the regular Centurion for 2EUR and I might be convinced to buy it....

It is one of the better looking tanks of the game.

Combining mobility, strong frontal armour, tough turret and an accurate gun... KV2 has a more accurate gun.

*edited* So please, spare us your [edited]. I don't know why mods feel they need to take a stand on worst possible topics ever. Don't start another Defender vs TVP meme.

P2W does not mean paying SECURING victory. It means paying money giving you an advantage in gameplay, which this is doing. If you put two players of the same skill against each other, and one uses the regular Centurion at tier 8, while the other uses the premium one, the latter has an advantage. At this point, there's quite a few premium tanks who give that advantage. So what exactly happened to "premium tanks should be inferior to fully upgraded tanks of the same tier"?

 

Also, if wargaming was half as enthusiastic with balancing the game as it was at promoting premium tanks every single day, I'd be much more inclined to consider it a gaming company interested in providing a quality experience rather than just another greedy corporate entity trying to suck every last dime from my wallet. The former might make me much more likely to pay more to support it.

Centurion 5/1 RAAC simply has better armor and stats than tech tree Centurion. So it's pay2win, by definition.

 

I don't know why you insist otherwise, do you think we can't check this?

Might I suggest if you're going to connect WG with your comments then you try and show you know what you're talking about.

If you want help interpreting the graphs, please ask.

 

It's your skills at stats that will mark the difference
