Oh yes ..... This is quite a dream come true. As free to play player im loving seeing #WalletClosed everywhere ! WG , if this 1.10 patch is to make free to play players happy by increasing P2W BS making paying customers stop paying money to you , then congrats WG . You have definetly made my day by removing the trust between ur customers by stop paying more money to u.Ofc i have to live with P2W BS but if people are paying less money to you then im more happy than dealing with P2W BS 1.10 brought.Anyway WG , no need to argue with this statement - if ur game really is F2P , like it ,otherwise if u do argue then pls change ur game title from F2P into P2W or Pay to play and stop ads of ur game on YT.Look WG , i dont want this game to die but if u are willing to make it die by P2W BS and making quick bucks as reason then i will NEVER stand for it and i dont mind it die for this reason.

Daily reminder that this forum is mostly an echo chamber of frustrated (((walletclosed))) bobs which ironically already spent a fortune on the game. The vast majority of the players is happy with the game as can be seen on the impressive player numbers (again 100.000 yesterday in the mid of summer).

well you can be sheep as others who dont care if wg just making fun of you and scamming you for they profit :) 

 

one of the reason is that there are many  promises which were not hold etc.. in the end many small things made community angry.. 

 

especially these who is with wg from beginning and supported them with money... 

 

are you still wondering why this happening?

maybe not as i see your membership started 2020

It is the best tank with preferential MM... believe me, over 3k battle with it and 3 MoE..

yes Prog overall better, except tier 10 battles... and, for sure, cheating armor of type 59 bouncing E75;)

Why is it ironic that we have spent on the game?  
 

We liked the game, we spent money.

We don’t like how the game changed, we stopped spending money.

 

It is not irony.  Irony would be to complain whilst still spending.

 

Irony would also be complaining about an echo chamber in the hope everyone will shut up and say only what you want to hear.

 

Now be a good little boy and run along: adults are talking.  :teethhappy:

A quick look at tanks.gg shows this tank being just a slower, heavier tier 6 Sherman with no redeeming qualities. Its the worst premium E8 Sherman tank you can buy. But what irks me most about these articles is the way its advertised, cherry picking some good stats and pretending that its a great vehicle: 
 

WG News Article @https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/special-offers/fury-offer-aug2020/ said: 

The M4A3E8 Fury  stuck to its roots and kept the trusted Sherman qualities — a turret with exceptionally hard gun mantlet to bounce of enemy fire, excellent damage per minute, a nice gun handling with respectable dispersion on the move, and depression angles to take advantage of ridgelines and hull-down tactics.


"a turret with exceptionally hard gun mantlet" & "hull-down tactics" 
- Do not be fooled, this is just the regular E8 mantlet, meaning its the same one as found on the regular E8 and Thunderbolt. What the news article neglects to mention is that the gun mantlet doenst cover that much of the front turret, so you can just shoot around it for easy penetrations. This tank is not as suited for hulldown tactics as the article above is implying. 

 

"excellent damage per minute" & "nice gun handling"
- When comparing tier 6 vehicles, the Fury/E8 has very good dpm for its tier. But, what they dont tell you: A line-up showing tier 6 mediums clearly shows us that the Sherman has very poor penetrating ability for its tier. Where a regular tier 6 medium will struggle to penetrate tough targets and higher tier opponents, the Fury will struggle even more with its tier 5-like penetration. While having good hun handling, the poor penetration lets the tank down. This would also mean that a player driving this vehicle is more likely to spend on premium ammo to deal damage. *
( * This issue affects all the Sherman tanks tho, not just the Fury)

"depression angles" 
- When the tier 6 Sherman tanks were released, they had a whopping -10 degrees of gun depression. That used to be a big deal at the mid tiers, because the Russian and German vehicles couldnt do that. These days we have plenty of tier 6 vehicles which can do the same, or even better. 


In my opinion, if anyone want to sell a premium tank that doesnt perform as well anymore as it once did, thats fine with me. But be fair, and dont just highlight the good stats of a vehicles without showing the bigger picture. If these tanks arent doing as good anymore in the game, dont give misleading impressions about a vehicle, just rebalance the vehicle!

If the premium tank is any good, players will buy it. 

But for now, if you want to spend money and see some Sherman tanks in action.. 

.. rent the movie.

Hmm still better to get the version of the Shermans there gets a BiA crew with it though, as they are the same price.

I’d hold out for the Thunderbolt - it has a similar role, but better armour.

I am sorry, but in any respect, the Firefly VC is a better pick. And even Thunderbolt is better despite its lower ROF, as it has better dispersion, aim time and mobility. The armor values between Fury and Thunderbolt are identical.If you want great pen for a tier 6 Shermie, than the VC is your pick. The armor can actually bounce, despite being lower than what Fury or Thunderbolt are offering in terms of armor.
