Post by mjs_89 got me thinking: what is the tank under the tarp?

I have a question...

 

 

Is the "quite valuable" thing a free tank? If it is then for the love of god please do tell us now. I already see the whine-threads from people who thought this isn't going to be worth it initially...

If you pay attention a bit, you'll notice that there's a tank covered and the skin besides it. :)

Yeh it looks like the T-44-100 but I feel like they just use that a stock default image these days for a 'hidden tank'.

 

So maybe we are getting more than just a style for the T30?

It's definitely possible. They won't tell you what's the reward, would they? :D

You would think from a PR point of view they would be better off telling us, rather than having it as a 'surprise' considering the negative feedback about the event and the rewards so far.

 

They don't even need to tell us the tank, just say there is a tank (and yes as above it could be some crappy tier 5) but at least that would probably placate people and get them more interested in the event.  

 

Also saying it now but the Awful Panther would be a great reward tank for this, unlikely to be OP, an interesting tank and fits with the theme of the event as a removed/changed tank from the past.

 

But that is probably too clever for WG. 

 

Personally I non-plussed, there are so many events and rewards going on anyway what with Frontline reward tanks, battle pass, more ranked battles likely to come, probably another reward for service nearer the end of the year etc. etc. that people could end up picking up what like 4 or 5 reward tanks this year? But I suppose it would be nice to have something that everyone kind of gets.

I think they just used the T-44-100 to not give away what tank we'll be getting, provided it's a tank that's already on ST and not something completely new ofc.

My best guess is one of the tier 9 reward tanks currently being tested:

Object 752

K-91-2

Strv K

Concept 1b

UDES 03 Alt 3

Or maybe the tier 9 TD that got booted out of the tech-tree when the Bobject was introduced?

SU-122-44 was the removed TD, that would also fit with the 'theme' off the event.

 

I reckon two of those tanks will the ranked rewards for this year, I reckon they will do like they did with Frontlines and add two reward vehicles you can earn, but it still does leave several that have no obvious purpose at the moment as they do seem to be testing 5 tier 9s at the moment that all look like they might be reward vehicles.

I have to agree, there's already threads about how the event is not worth it. Can you imagine the amount of salty crybabies we'll get here if they announce a tank in 2 months (or so) and people missed the cance to get it because they thought it wouldn't be worth it?

Also, thumbs up for the Panther. It was removed before I started and I've always wanted to take it for a spin. Although, at this point, I'd be happy about any LT reward tank. The constant stream of HTs and MTs for CW/FL/PMs/Ranked is getting boring tbh...

Sounds like a fair assumption. WG's also testing the 7v7 format from Team Clash soon, maybe we'll get that as an event with a nice reward tank someday. Still, way too many tier 9s on ST to reasonably be covered by all the events we can expect as of now (assuming they are not testing next years' Fl rewards super early or something along those lines).

Its a T30 3d style. The tank image is just their generic hidden tank image.

Believe whatever you want, but don't you dare come here to cry in august because you'll be missing out on the reward tank...

 

Let's be real for a second. WoT is all about tanks, and this is the biggest event of the decade spanning over 5 months. Do you really think the grand price is a camo given out halfway through?

Pretty sure the picture is just a stock they use for all of these "secret" vehicles. Compare it to some older articles for example.

You mean the SU-122-54, and I think a certain mod would ree about you making that mistake since it was his favourite tank.

The SU-122-44 is still very much in the game, considering it is a tier 7 Premium.
