Your money should stay where it deserves to be in. WE need to see what WG break next like the 1st post and not give our money to WG. We can only talk to them through our wallet and not with our feedback :great:

Hi!

Tier 5.
Most missions are up tier 6.
No battle pass points.
No strongholds
Not a really good creditmaker, almost the same as normal techtree tanks.
I think you can get it free for bonds (1500 bonds maybe) so make a 2nd account and you can get it on your main.

For real cash? NO IN F.....G WAY!!!!
I would wait for good prems, but the way WG handle old players and changing in the game nowdays, i HOLD my MONEY BACK!

Guess they are bound to put bond shop tanks up for sale once a while.

Ah, that’ll be the tank’s unique low-yield nuclear shell, inflicting 3500 damage to every tank within 150m. ;)
 

(Available in the WG store for €1000 per shell.)

This game no longer has lower tiers... It is all about that "Lose credits at tier 10, gain credits at tier 8" loop, allowing tier 5s in missions and BP means fewer tier 6s to for the MM to throw in as cannon fodder in tier 8 games.

Wth is this???? I have been waiting for one specific tank for months now (borat) and we get scammed like this???????

@dwigt could you please elaborate what is the reason for different offers for different servers? I am pretty sure we are all playing the same game.

12€ for a T5 (albeit good) tank that you can use for nothing, and that was given for free not long ago? Yeah sure, i'll take a dozen.

:facepalm:

They are just trying to make it easy for the people who keep writing #WALLETCLOSED in response to crew 2.0 to finally keep their promises for a change. :great:

This tank is kind of pointless, can't use for Battle Pass, is less flexible than the regular tech tree T-34 with an inferior gun; far lower DPM, lower shell velocity, way lower pen on gold rounds, worse dispersion etc.  They call it an "upgrade." They lie.

I think it's a great tank, I see them all the time in tier V and VI matchups, it's the meta tank for those tiers. It's rare to see a game with less than 6 or 7 of them in one team, similar to CW with 279e and T95/FV4201. Tier to tier T-34 shielded is much more OP than the other two.

No server transfer though :) sorry not sorry, just pay us.

 

Seriously, how do you justify not having server transfer when every other game has it?

I have this on my NA account (got it free last year when I signed up using a CC code) - Played it quite a lot when I first got the account.... well... until I progressed my Russkie grind to the tech tree T-34

I think I also have it on my EU acc. but being an arty main, I've barely played it.

 

Worse acceleration and hillclimbing than the tech tree T-34, thanks to being heavier and same engine.

Has a 76mm gun which falls between the 2nd and 3rd 76mm on the tech tree variant - ROF is close to the 2nd 76, pen is closer to the 3rd 76

DPM isn't far off the 2nd 76 - But nowhere near the DPM of the 57mm

Turret is like the stock T-34 turret - the extra 'shields' really don't do much by way of extra protection - I barely noticed any difference.

 

I'd MUCH rather play an upgraded tech tree T-34, with the 57mm

 

If I'm on my NA acc. I still use the T-34-S for extra crew training until I get the first win in it... but beyond that.... it's just 'meh!'

I certainly wouldn't pay real money for it.

It is not bad, but it is pointless.
