So this is to commemorate the third season of 'The Boys' but honestly I didn't know there had been series one or two. Not a tank for me though, it's a crowded sector with better options, although I can imagine it would be very, very nice for somebody to go with a 'Boys' poster on their bedroom wall and the collection of action figures that keep the monsters away at night.

Selling customization items is a very good approach of monetizing the game but I'm not happy that you focus so much on unrealistic stuff. Why are you so keen on taking a fantasy approach rather than making the game atleast semi-realistic? I'm thinking that most of us are here because we have an interest in tanks and history. There are plenty of historical crews from both the allies and the axis that I'm sure that people would pay money to get for the same reason that they buy Tiger 131 or IS-2 Berlin. You can even connect these crews to an actual story and a corresponding tank, which can even have its own skin, such as tank number, insignias, modifications, etc.

 

Note: With unrealistic stuff I also mean things such as unrealistic corridor maps, unrealistic physics, etc.


I agree with you. The problem is that this game is full of kids an young people who dont care about history at all.

It's f-ing great, mate! In this era where only thing that sells the movie tickets are dumb superhero films whether a hundredth time to try to sell Hulk and Spidermen, or a million Avengers movies, or a Star Wars laced woke propaganda you have this gritty superhero show that is actually a parable about fame, politics, the reach of influencers, social media and PR campaigns masked in a story about evil superheros and a bunch of regular people who are collateral victims of those "heros" trying to destroy them, plus a realistic view how the world sees America (Homelander) vs how they see themselves (Captain America).

 

Eric Kripke from first 4 seasons of Supernatural is the show runner and the source material is a dark comic book.

The cast is led by Meg Ryan's son who is actually a pretty good actor and the most unknown among the famous New Zealand actors (with a plethora of roles you don't recognize him because he wore a helmet or a mask) - Karl Urban - this time with his natural accent and a lot of real down under insults and a remarkably high number of c*nts among them, and another New Zealand talent - Anthony Starr who is absolutely deserving of an Oscar for his very very broad emotional range as a evil Superman/Captain America hybrid - Homelander. You won't be hearing Starr's Kiwi accent though, he is an american character.

It's hard to describe, but IMO one of the best series I recently watched - brutal, and with dark and twisted sense of humor, but if you like something like that, then go for it. I purchased this tank purely of sentiment for that show ^^. Available on Amazon.

I like how the T42 stats aren't shown anywhere.

Not only you wouldn't know what you're buying, the others also don't know how to counter it.

It has reasonably strong turret (vs tiers 8, not higher), but hull is nothing special: T42 - World of Tanks - tanks.gg

That live turret armor looks like the most blatant case of: "protect paying customer" ever seen.

Play vs 50%er in that tank, your shots go in the exact pixels to ding him.

 

Buy that tank yourself - always penetrated in turret because enemy shots go in the weaker pixels.

Solution to problem that shouldn't even exist? Doctor gold ammo.

The first series was a cracking idea about superheroes gone bad, but the second is a turd. Poorly written and very switch-off-able. If it makes it to a 3rd season it will it be the American Dr Woke/

Of all the tier 8 US mediums, this has to be one of the worst. I've had it since it first came out, but I'd forgotten just how bad it is. Then pen and view range are good, so it makes a great sniper, but if you are thinking of dashing across open ground or circling in a dynamic match, this is not the tank to choose. It's hard enough overtaking a T-28 Prot in your own team. The 8 second reload is a bit of a joke too.

the tank is meh at best and looks like crew 2.0 will make the BIA crews pretty much irrelevant, so think I will skip this.

if not for crew 2.0 might consider it though...

WG, you really did it this time :facepalm:

190 AP pen at 814m/s (snail speed & the Pershing gets 975m/s AP speed) Bounce Bounce Bounce! then you get fed up so load that  258 APCR at 1410m/s Gold sorry WG "Special" ammo for special people lol then watch those Credits disappear fast

 

and 14.8hp/t  .. bit better than a Heavy Tank

but its a Medium Tank!

 

balanced there calling it nowadays
