100% crews are the new bloat ware.
wg, please tell people how little you care about the quality of low tier games before selling stuff like this.

price aint to bad however a lot of players have thousands of gold lying about in their garage , so the bloat wear serves no purpose

The tank needs a better gun, it's still balanced as if this game is being played in 2011, which it isn't.

 

92mm penetration while the standard on the tier for heavy tanks is 120+ mm is just not going to cut it anymore in 2020.

I have it. Very good armor. Impossible low penetration. It can't even put a dent in a piece of paper. Nothing more than a hugh useless steel turtle.

where is the good armor????  a KV-1 (same tier heavy) can pen you left and right, same with  Matilda (tier 4 medium) !!!!  KV-220 has good armor for the hull that is good, not this turd. Maybe if you snapshot gold at the enemy is better, however I don't think so 

And let's not forget about all the derps running around tier 4-5 with 120 HEAT pen and 450 HE splash again will make your life  miserable.

its a decent tank if you know how to play it. not worth money, should be free as a part of some mission. below tier 6 is obsolete. most marathons require a higher tier

Yet another powercreeped mid-tier heavy that, at one time, was somewhat reasonable with fairly good armour, but which now can be damaged/killed by most of the tanks it'll face because:

 

1: most people simply press the '2' key

2: newer/more powerful tanks in the same tier range.

 

That, coupled with the fact it's essentially got the Shermans 75mm low velocity gun means the only good thing this tank has going for it anymore is its manoeuvrability on anything but the softest ground.

 

Now if this had at least a 76mm gun, or better yet, a 90mm gun, then maybe, just maybe, it'd still be something of a worthwhile investment for some mid-tier fun, but as it stands now it's only real use is to complete tank collections.

A tough nut to crack... about 5 years ago. And it had a bad gun even then. I've said it before and I keep repeating: every medium and low tier premium needs a rebalance (and not a few of the tech tree tanks as well), because balance that relies on the thinking of "not as bad as stock but worse than fully upgraded" is laughably outdated and an absolute waste of money at this point. And that seems to be by design...

Its a halfway decent low tier heavy tank going for a reasonable price so why the ott hate

Under £6 for this tank given you get 750 gold which is £2-80 and they are selling the tank for £8-55.

Are there better tier 5 tanks probably yes and if you get one you will have to carry a fair amount of premium ammo.

 

It was removed from the shop ages ago its one they retired, but still shows up occasionally so collectors can still get one.

Could have been made into a decent tank but sadly players "as usual" got in the way.

Remember that idea of removing Preferential MM and buffing the tanks and the steady droning whine from players who didnt want the changes.

 

Instead of selling these old outdated collectors tanks they should go ahead with buffing them and giving them normal MM.

Its easy enough to do.

T14 gets buffed and comes into the game store as the T14-1 or similar.

They stop selling the T14 pmm version

 

Do the same for every single tank that has preferential matchmaking

Every pmm tank would have a standard mm brother that was better in many ways.

You upgrade or keep your old pmm version no one really cares which.

You cannot logically complain as you can keep the tank you paid in its original form.

 

I recon most pmm tanks would vanish from the game in months.
