There is a rumor the new polish premium med is going to be a marathon prize, but they are still testing it, so if it is true i don't think we are going to have it until at least mid July, or even August.

Both the Cent 5/1 and T44-100 seem decent premium tanks. I picked up the Cent just now. I was suprised how cheap it is. (Especially compared to the €44 T44-100 standard bundle).

£38 pounds for the T-44? That's crazy... Centurion is more reasonably priced at £23.

T-44-100 tank for 45 € vs 27'70 € Centurion?

Is a "Progetto's price" for a good tank, but with very low penetration & bad AIM at long distances... overpriced.

So you can get a Premium T8 Med for £23 or, for 62% more you can get one for £38.

 

We know the reason for the difference (WG's complete [edited]up with their initial pricing of the T44-100) but you'd have to be insane to pay that price.

Even though Centurion is much cheaper, T-44-100 is better value for money IMO.

Which one is your pick commanders? Centurion Mk. 5/1 RAAC or T-44-100? Don't forget to mention why, I am sure your comments will help newcomers trying to figure out which one would be a better addition to their garage! ;)

I will think about paying 44 EUR...

 

for WTE which WG "taken" away...contrary to FV183 which could be kept by players already owning the tank...(what is more broken tank? WTE,FV183,FV4005 or Foch155?)

 

...and then I say NO

thats the thing, newcomers shouldn’t be allowed buy T8 premium tanks until they at least have played the game for a while. Have a 5k battle limit or have researched a tech tree T8 before being able to buy one. So many battles full of players who don’t know what to do. As Claus Kellerman might say, “dadddyyyy.......invisible tanks are shooting me...dadddyyyy.......cheaters!

I think neither tank is suitable for newcomers. :hiding:
A good tank for newcomers is something like a derp KV, Matilda or M4/T-34. 
 

My comments on these premiums:


The 44-100 is a flanker and brawler, but todays maps tend to be rather corridor-style and options to really flank the enemy team dont come along until later in most battles. This might mean that the 44-100 is forced into a support role, especially if its mid or low tier, where its penetration and shell velocity let it down. A player can compensate for this with premium ammo but this will defeat its purpose as a creditfarmer. So you can get this tank as a crewtrainer, but the mid tier soviet premiums would be a better choice for that role. Another glaring problem is the medoicre viewrange on this tank, forcing the player into buying optics as a third equipment slot. This mean you cannot mount vents, which couldhve otherwise improved gun handling and dpm. 

All this leaves me puzzled why someone would even want to buy the 44-100 premium for its hefty pricetag. I really dont like paying real money for vehicles that are too reliant on the matchmaker and your willingness to spend on premium ammo to determine if you can play it as intended or not. I got my 44-100 from a marathon years ago, but lets just say its not one of my favorite vehicles. Thumbs down. 

 

Meanwhile, the Cent 5/1 seems to be the better tank for your money. Its basically a buffed up tier 8 centurion with a better armored hull and stronger engine. The gun has excellent features which allow you to play either support and snipe, or go in more agressively. The strong front turret and upper front plate actually allows for this kind of gameplay, which makes the Cent 5/1 far more flexible. Because the tank already comes with decent viewrange and good gun handling, this tank is more friendly towards players who start with a fresh crew.
