Given that choice I would take the Poodle first.

If you'd checked his tanks, he's already up to tier 7 with the polish heavy tanks. The Pudel therefore provides no use at all for his crew that's at the top of his grind.

 

The Pudel was released prior to the Polish line and gave minimal benefit once you got to tier V and VI. After that it's all heavy tanks. 

 

If he's kept the tier VI Polish medium tank then it provides some benefit, but why would he do that.

 

Pudel provides nothing of any real benefit. The M4 improved at least allows many more crews from many more tanks to be played.

 

If he doesn't want the M4 and he's already got the AT15A, then he's better getting to the top of the rewards. Selling the AT15A he's got for credits, then claiming it back as a reward.

 

That way he gets a credit bonus at the top and not a vehicle.

 

Edit:>----Oh...democracy wins then.

I would still pick the Poodle over the M4 Improved.

The question was M4 or Pudel, not M4 or Pudel, or some other option.

Pudel can take crews from two tanks, and none from higher tiers.

M4 improved can take crews from 12 tanks, including higher tiers.

 

I can't quite see your logic, but I guess you have some.

I find thinking holistically often generates solutions that people don't consider. They can still be discounted, but it's better to have other options to discount than pick the least worst option of a limited number.

 

He'd also clearly considered the AT15A, as he stated that he had it. So he had considered it as an option, unlike what you claim. What he hadn't considered was selling it for credits and getting it back.

 

Net result. He doesn't have to take the least worse option of two tanks and he's around one million credits up.

Pudel looks better, is a tier higher, is more fun to play, I don't remember seeing it on sale very often, and there are few alternatives.

 

If it's an American crew trainer he wants then there's about 100298324825755867.5 other options, all of which are better.

 

Then again I do have a 100% win rate on the M4 so maybe I'm wrong.

I'll be honest....I often see this as a rationale for a pixel tank and I've never quite understood it. Considering how often you're looking at your tank compared to the enemy tank, if you're choosing a tank on the basis of how it looks you're giving the enemy something nicer to look at rather than you.

Probably because you can only use crews from two tanks, and once you get to tier 7 in the Polish line it's mostly redundant.

Are they "free" options? He said he's only got the Super Pershing, so maybe he doesn't want to spend any more money.

If you bought yours then do you feel it was good value for that single game. If you got it for free and there are 100298324825755867.5 other options, all of which are better, why haven't you sold it for credits?

 

Personally, I'd take the million credits in the bank rather than two pretty mediocre to poor premium tanks.

 

He has the MT-25 unlocked, the Russian light tank line is TOTP. He could use that million credits to get the LTG for free once unlocked, and boost further rewards during the event.

 

But if you think the Pudel was a better choice because it looks nice then I can't disagree with that. It does look nice.

I have none of them, because I dont like playing tier 6 and below, but from what I've heard the Puding might be better

@Long_Range_Sniper  You may be right but I would play all day any other tank than the M4 improved.

With the money won with the Pudel  I would buy a book for my US crew. And if needed I would retrain the Pudel crew to put in the heavies.

Pudel is the best stand alone tank out of those 3 and even if it doesn't fit in with crew training it gives you a flexible enough tier 6 medium that you can also use in Strongholds.

 

If you scroll to the right there is normally an option for 7 days premium also.

I think it was in a loot box but TBH I don't remember and it wouldn't be the only one I ever paid for and only played once but then I also paid for Duke Nukem Forever and only played 20 minutes.

 

Sell a premium tank!?  What!? Never!!!!!

 

I even have all the gift tanks we've ever been given, some of which I have equipped and never played.

You made the right choice OP. I have both the m4 improved and the puddle. The M4 is dire compared to the polish tonk.

 

What what

Here’s a controversial opinion: I’m picking the AT-15A because I would never, ever spend money, gold or bonds or anything else on it myself. So this will probably be the only chance ever of getting it. So despite having zero interest in obtaining it, I shall obtain it and I shall play it.

I can't quite see your logic, but I guess you have some.

 

To be fair, M4 Improved has 91 pen with +2 MM. And no other good aspects besides base view range. It's arguably not the worst tier 5 premium. But not far from it. So even with crew training in mind, I would not recommend this to anyone... Play a tier 8 for a few games and buy a book vs train crews in this thing.

 

So tbh. I would say Pudel is the superior choice. Gun that works, bit better premium income, some aspect of the armor actually works. And it's a great support med in a +2. Even with the limited choice of Polish meds to train. That said, I only have the Pudel, and it has trained every crew I have on that nation. Inc HT crews. Just get their base % up, toss on a book and repurpose them.

 

But... that's just me.

because I ask for opinion of people who have played them, I don't need a crew trainer nor will I play them often due to lack of premium mm
