3D camo is a grind within a grind... No thanks. 5000 gold for a T8 3D style? aha

 

Tank looks, interesting though. Alpha + reload is funny, pen and shell speed is good. I imagine seeing a triple platoon in a game will ruin your day if you are unlucky

Gotta love how the tech tree one has 360 alpha with with 0,42 dispersion while this big 400 alpha derp has 0,32. Because of reasons... :facepalm:

THat's an impressively ugly 3d style...

 

As for the tank, looks really uninteresting. I mean, it has the usual turret armor power creep (but since it is not russian I'll assume the cupolas are not hard to hit), decent gun handling and horrible dpm.

 

Yeah, this really doesn't look like its worth the time. Maybe for the people who get to 90% discount.

 

Oh, and since it is not russian, I'll assume its not getting buffed.

If you play crap, you will have basically 0 chance at obtaining the tank. The missions really reward good plays.

 

On a side note, does anyone know whether premium account ups the base XP or does that purely refer to the number displayed in the team score list?

I'm a good player. But I just don't enjoy playing when most games are full of everyone trying to do the same hard missions at the same time. It's just not fun

 

re XP: No, its base XP shown in the team review

Wargaming just keeps increasing the gold penetration on new premium tanks. Obj. 274a got 290, GSOR got 320, now this has 300.

Because that's the only stat that matters in 2021, am I right?

Yup. Who needs standard, when you get better results with "special"

Well, if enough crummy players move up to playing tiers 9 and 10 to try completing missions above their ability, it may mean I'll have an easier time just doing my thing at tier 6... :popcorn:

This must be the worst looking skin that wargaming have made yet, please don’t try and beat this one. Won’t be buying this skin.

Will go for 30/40% discount as usual before buying. :)

No interest in the 3D style though, and it's overpriced too (afaik 5k gold is the value of a Tier 10 3D style).

What a joke.

 

The bundle will again be a 60+ Euro bundle, for a medium tank that shines in slow battles (which are now rare), and the goodies have been moved behind an additional gated entry, so no more credit boosters by default.

When these marathons started, the Progetto 46 was cheaper, and came with 60hs of 50% credit boosters.

Then in 2 marathons they moved to 20hs of 50% credit boosters.

Now the tanks have become cheaper, worse, more expensive though, and the few real goodies have been hidden behind additional paywalls.

 

62k base xp for lvl 5

250k base xp for lvl 10

 

10d period.

Again some WG employee's kid got crayons and was asked to 'design' a 'camo'.

Stop making this game appeal to 8-year olds, has any of WG marketing employees any idea how kids are treated in this game? Play some strongholds. 12-year old kids are being shouted at, sworn at, told to f off back to mummy etc.

 

Your playerbase is not really as young as you want it to be.

17.5 second reload with 400 alpha gives this thing a mind-blowing 1371 base DPM. For context, the Renegade has 40 less alpha and 9.78 base reload time... not far off half (or twice the rate of fire). The M4A1 Rev has 390 alpha and 12.27 base reload, 0.34 base dispersion. Italian heavies and now this... I guess Wargaming hates DPM now :(
