Hello,

 

I know im not meant to be buying anymore tanks BUT I played this some rental and had a blast with it, for £34 is it worth it do you think? I actually dont have a premium French heavy so can use it to train crews but,i can also get the Libertie tier 8 heavy instead for BONDS

 

so should I get the bond shop liberty or this fun autoloader?

 

I could not resit, so I bought it

What you like more? Regular tanks or autoloaders? Those two tanks are both pretty good, I personally like them, amx m4 can really bounce a lot, but the gun handling half of the time is terrible, and somua have nice autoloader, but shitty mobility (and armor works too sometimes).

Nah, go with Liberte for bonds.


If you have patience, just wait for the next OP autoloader that will arrive, which of course will be a premium tank.

I like both to be honest, I have 17k bonds so I may just buy both of them lol

You could also take the Defender which is on sale as well... Using the discount from the tank rewards you can get either one for up to 20% less

Somua is much better than a Defender. Defender shoots once, Somua has a big clip. Much more dangerous and fun.

yeah , thats what I dont like about the defender is the very poor gun handling 

 

Somua I had great fun in my 10 rental battles, bouncing even skip G shots

Not reliably, but it can bounce indeed. Can be hard to deal with if you have <200 penetration.

Stop funding the inept company until every tank available has viability on the battle field and the game achieves a better and more fulfilling balance

Yes.

At least if many players proceed to advocate power creep and bad tank balance and OP premium tanks by buying them.

Which wont change I think.

I never get any food for premium tank sales. I have to forage for myself at night in the balancing department kitchenette, there are always tons of tasy stuff there, the people there never eat it because they are too busy balancing the game.

Saxan is kinda obsessed with this game so literally nothing will stop him spending.
