That's 2 more tanks re-bought in the garage.

74 more to go for the rest of the tech tree. :honoring:

Is this line fun to play? I very much like the other French autoloaders but never played French heavies.

I did not enjoy tier 8 where I stopped.

Long clip reload and literally no Armour makes it so hard for me to play.

I played without gold ammo which is even worse gaming experience in this tank. But yet I still think about finishing this line - but I'll go full gold on it now.

I got AMX 50B in the garage and... still there is also an AMX 50 100. All disadvantages aside, I really like 50 100, the biggest pain in the *** is the magazine loading time and aiiiiiiiiiming time. I had good times playing 50 120. AMX 50B I do not play so often, I prefer american T57 Heavy :)

 

Summarizing, specific line of heavy tanks with some advantages and disadvantages ;)

About €20 for a 3D skin - [Edited] 

 

 

OK edited version - "you must take us for some sort of fools to charge such a high price for a purely cosmetic touch"

Personally I think AMX 50B is worst tier 10 heavy tank. As FIRST autoloader heavy tank, it has been power creeped badly, others are just better.

Big and no camo or armor makes it hard to work. 8 and 9 tier autoloaders were far more fun than this.

 

Also, that 50B skin, lazy work. Cheapest look compared to any other 10t skin made this far.

Amx 50 100 had its moments, 50 120 not su much.
50B is really strong on certain maps, but you kind of have to shoot gold if you want to be competitive as AP is so sluggish (shell velocity) combined with medicore gun handling...

That is an interesting and good tactic to collect all the tanks! Requires patience and self-control! :izmena:

Thanks guys. Doesn't sound like the line is worth the effort.

It may look like you're right, but I think we got a reworked ToTT system recently, which probably started the whole tier X wheel from zero. rewards got reworked as well...

Well, since you're offering... My vote goes to the WZ-111-5A and the E50M (though that last one was TotT in okt/nov last year). :medal:

Nice to see the Mordian camo make a return after a long time (and the KV-2® having made reappearances on its own), since I missed it on the first time. But I just wonder, why is the deal worse than it was on the first time in 2018? https://worldoftanks...rs/wh40k-tanks/

Warhammer 40,000 Tanks Storm the Battlefield - 11/06/2018

Update: Mordian style set upgrade

For you fans of the Warhammer 40,000 universe out there, we've updated the Mordian package with new items. Upon purchasing the Mordian style of the French heavy tank BDR G1 B, you will now receive the following bonuses:

  • x5 XP for the next 25 victories with the BDR G1 B
  • 600,000 (credits) and a 100% trained crew for the BDR G1 B
  • 10 missions: deal 500 damage or more in a battle to get a Strong Coffee consumable

Please note that all the players who already purchased the Mordian style will automatically receive the bonuses listed above!

 I'm probably picking up the camo anyway, but this really bothers me.

212 at tier 7, 232 at tier 8 and 257 at tier 9 and 10. Pen is one thing the line doesn't lack, it's rather brilliant for tier 7, 8 and 9 standards and tier 10 is perfectly fine. The whole ''you need to spam gold to do well'' mantra is just nonsense. Long reload is a challenge with 50 100 but the whole package is manageable. It's a line worth playing through. Autoloaders are still enjoyable and offer a new kind of challenge to learn to those who haven't played them.

Not too long ago, there was a sale where all tech tree tanks were priced off.

Tiers 2-7 were on the same discount as top of the tree, tiers 8-10 were on a lower discount. So by selling most of my depot equipment from Equipment 2.0, I managed to re-buy all tier 2-7 tanks that I didn't have in my garage anymore. :)

Just recently bought the CS-63, so now I have all tier 10s in my garage. Now I just need the tier 8 and 9 tanks of most tech trees and I'll be as close to having a "press account" as possible. :teethhappy:
