Not as a hurt, it’s reassuring to have a content team, because in recent days I’ve only read to buy this, buy it, and the next stages of the content already introduced will be repeated. (steel hunter, battle pass)

If you can’t attend global map events, the brain-dead random grind remains.

 

With minimal creativity, one could create events, challenges instead of corpulent weekly repetitive missions.

 

You could do sequences of missions that can be accomplished per tank class linked to maps (map mastery missions), not, of course, something you complete in two weeks.

For clans, a series of missions could be made at random in random stages for individual rewards. Or the stronghold could be seasoned with things worth fighting for (such as the dawn of industry).

 

Unfortunately, the game is becoming more and more empty ...... it is necessary to import new premium tanks, because the revenue is needed for the WG, its ok,  but it is not equal to the content inside the game ........

Correct me if i am wrong but isn't this the closest you can get to a Leopard 1 without actually grinding one and without playing tier 10? Looks, speed, decent gun?

 

Nope, never mind, i am wrong. Only looks an speed compare, gun is on an entirely differend level.

Not bad but .... Its huge compared to other light tanks .... Same troll HEP ammo like the Black Bulldog ... But you can always get it from tech tree even with gold or trading another tank and get a discount .

In fact, yes, big part of truth - one of the biggest alpha for LT - 240 (only WZ-132 has 250), good shell’s speed, and premium HESH’s velocity more than APCR , lol, incredible HE with 102 pen.
Best VR, but cammo not that good due to it size...

So it’s actually hybrid of LT and MT.

Sooo, that would make it a Leopard 1 lookalike that actualy makes money. Slightly interested.

Just because new type of events aren't going on at this very moment, it doesn't mean that more stuff with different content and structure isn't bound to pop-up in the future. :)

I like the HWK 30 and would say it's quite versatile.

Going by stats it seems like a decent tank, it's just too bad that as long as the wheeled clown cars are in the game, I don't see much point in playing any LT of any tier...
