Put your experience as a tank commander to good use in missions with the same name and take on the biggest opponents with this heavy autoloader.

A beast of a tank! One of my favorite T8 premiums. Armor works (sometimes), and damage burst is just brutal.

It is good that it has 5 shells, 3 will miss the wheeled vehicles and 2 will just bounce or critical hit with 0 damage.

 

Armor is there, but it is flat, not sloped so it will be reliably penned by tier 8s and quite often by tier 7s.

 

Compared with other pay to win tanks, this one is not so bad for the game balance.

Yes, good, the right nation, only the wrong tank. Guys stop the charades, we are waiting for Bourrasque.

Progetto 46 is actually buffed and EBR is untouched.

this update is bonkers:

 

  • italian line (the most fun to play although not OP) nerfed to oblivion, while the OP premium tier 8 gets buffed
  • obj430s "nerf" meaning their tiny cupola is now as strong as E100 turret. and that's it
  • let's not even talk about the ebr
  • game-breaking new equipment that does not fit at all with the way spotting and 6th sense mechanics currently work
  • bounty equipment we paid for with real money is now not anymore equal to bond equipment
  • binoculars and camo net no more demountable for free (would have preferred to know it before selling the ones i had in excess and keeping only 5 of them)

 

dear WG, I was genuinely going to pay 32€ (40€ discounted by 20% with tankrewards coupon) for the somua you just released 

 

now i will not

 

you just lost a paying customer. i will keep playing the game of course but this is it from my side

 

take care

Ever remember when we get excited for what the weekend special post was? Now it's just a foot note at the bottom of a sales pitch.

 

Who would buy a premium tank from WG at the moment? So much uncertainty about the future of this game.

 

I have no faith in the game developers. 

The failed ammo rebalance wasting over a year of development time. the bland "easier" for new players tech tree. The terrrible UI in garage. Refusal to nerf clan wars tanks and 279e.Taking way too long to fix broken EBRs and now bottling nerfing the tier 8 premium. Frontlines could have actually been fun with a EBR 75 nerf.

This Equipment 2.0 is flawed, all we will see is an increase to dpm and vision, niether of which needed in this game. It seems WG want to get turbo games down to under 3 minutes.

Crew 2.0 also has the strong potiental to break the game even further too.

 

My wallet is firmly closed, has been all year. Very good chance I won't be spending anything on this game ever again, which is a shame cause I really used to love this game.

False advertising. There is, in fact, no "Sumo" in "Somua". There is "Somu", but that's it.

 

That's not how that works, wargaming.

Premium prog will get dpm increased to the same level as if it had rammer mounted, so extra free slot for equipment

What is the point? There is no more frontline this year, so why get T8 tanks there just gets chewed on by OP reward tanks?

Why is the weekend special once again pushed down to the end of the sales news? It looks as if the missions are just a bonus after obtaining the tank. Stop being so lazy/greedy and write two separate articles, it won't cost you that much time.
