If you want players to open their “#closedwallets” :D - make an offer they can’t refuse, to be exact - with “Clown car“ not combat one :ohmy:
Who care about combat car, when clown car can kill pvp any of combat :izmena: in response received only critical hit :(

not a bad tank by any means, just can't really clip 1.5 tanks anymore, but has great gun elevation and depression, decent mobility, but has no gold and struggles with most armored tanks unless shooting at turret or engine roofs with max gun depression, but can also only see T2 (I think).

In general, a bit worse than T2 LT.

 

I do wish both guns worked much like on the MTLS-1G14, because that would mean much less time of exposing yourself and emptying your big clip, while (subjectively) doubling the alpha so it would be on par with T2 LT.

I really don’t understand playing low tiers much...

Last time I’ve been there when Italian tech tree was released, to kill all Italian tanks - you know to have Master tanker (expert Italia) always updated:)

There were some new players and 4-5 M2 lights of “pseudo-skilled-kids” from both sides - total disaster:ohmy:

 Meanwhile, I took French R35 - beast among non-prem vehicles.

A bit offtopic but is there any info how long are we able to buy those demounting kit bundles in the ingame store? There is no date added to any of those offers.

Just buy it my good Sir! :D I already bought them, because I have a weird feeling that this opportunity will be really (really!) rare.

Can someone explain what is the point of tier I to  V vehicles (except while ascension on tech tree)after equipment 2 0?

Well, 1-5 were useless even before equipment 2.0 because:
1) most of prems must use gold (Pz J, B2, Kv-220 etc) - no credits earned
2) BPass from tier 6 - no progression in BP
And only 3) equipment 2.0 - but it mostly affected on “sand warriors” with M2 light full-gold+bonds:ohmy:
Is it fun there? No, not at all, some tanks are really OP (M2, PzJ etc.) and you can see now it’s more often to be in battle 13 vs 13, 10 vs 10, even 7 vs 7 at low tiers...
That’s why WG brings again that pile of garbage low tier prems and make missions to play with ... in order to maybe somebody will enjoy that gameplay and comeback to play low tiers more often:D

This tank became irrelevant after HP buffs and equipment slots nerfs.

It was useless before, now it's completely useless. It can't even pen some tier 2 light tanks frontally (hello M2 Light). Reload is still  22 seconds or so? Just balance it or delete from the game...

mostly, collecting or crew training.

Pz. II J is the weakest joke of a tank that has existed. There's countless tanks that can kill it with relative ease, while it will struggle to consistently pen some rather paper-armored tanks with its' gold. The tank is for memes, not actual gameplay. It works against noobs, not good players. Sure there are cases when one might corner you, but that is most likely your fault for not reading the map and the movement of red tanks, and adjusting your position accordingly.

2) you use only tier 8 premiums to farm credits. pretty much all premiums below tier 8 are either for free exp (Churchill III) or crew training.

Uhh no? nothing was nerfed in terms of equipment. The only equipment it needs is either binos or vents. I am still rocking 71% WR in it with a pretty average crew.

If you try to fight M2 LT frontally with the T7, then the problem lies with you.

It's easy to permatrack tanks with the T7, as I have done numerous times and since most tanks on T2 have pretty bad turret traverse, means you can circle them and shoot at weakspots.

This tank is not worth any equipment.

Besides going au naturel is relieving.

 WG has ruined tiers I-V , Tiers I-IV certainly, V, arguably.

Since majority of mission benefits are appliable to tiers VI and above ,low tiers were already running for its money for a long time . Now with equipment 2.0 low tiers premiums are not interesting  all by itself.

Low tiers games are now almost  depopulated for the aforementioned factors that now act in synergy.

I guess, WG idea was to make low tiers some kind of kindergarden, nurtuary for new players...but..BUT..how many new plyers there is and will be? Not many for a 10 years old game.

I respect all people,we all make mistakes,  but when a bussines based company is prone to such shortsighted  moves it feels sick to play their game, despite game is,due to orginal genial concept (now severily corrupted) still  appealing.

Actually it was.

Tier 2 tanks now have 1 slot disadvantage against tier 3, which you will face most of the time.

You have 14 other players on your team. You don't need to become 14-in-1 and do everything, because you can't. The only times I killed M2 LT's with my T7 was when they were either distracted (flanking) or I could get to outtrade them, by using high ground (read: exploiting weak roof armor).

You will bounce on average about 30 pellets out of 40 (assuming no min-rolls or max-rolls on pen via RNG) even if you try to shoot its' LFP at a direct angle or any other (less-reliable by the way) weak spots.

It does not matter what kind of ammo people use against a T7. The most dangerous could be any HE, especially from arty. I don't care if they use AP, APCR or HEAT because there's no difference at Tier 2 between them, aside the fact that they waste more money and then shed salty tears when I clip them on a tank, that does not even have any gold by default.

 You can just play tanks that will always meet tier 2 only, maybe even tier 1, if you are extremely lucky with MM's RNG. T7 is one of those tanks.

There's no particular equipment that will make your tier 2 tanks much better against same tier or tier 3 tanks. Before EQ 2.0, it was binos, vents and a camo net. Now it's either binos or vents. Marginal difference, really, besides the fact you crew can't get killed anymore, AFAIK.

I do wish there was far higher exp costs for low-tiers, so it gives people an incentive to learn the game, instead of rushing and then getting bot-reported in tier 10.
