Another Pattonish tank ...

Some many tier 8 USA mediums withs same gameplay..

And this one need to be loaded only with ''special'' ammo , with 190 penetration at normal you will bounce even at some tier 7 tanks.

Just another tank who need to be redecorated away from such cheesy cammo. Like Liberte, Patriot and Renegade.                                                                                  I would never pay for 2D or 3D cammo but i will gladly pay to remove some default cammo.

I dont know the tank and honestrly I'm not really interested on it, but i wonder if it is worth to spend 30€ for 8 crew members with 100% +BIA to retrain for other US tanks? Eventually 8 commanders. :mellow:

I agree, i bought the version without clown camo of patriot, same case with skorpion. But in the case of renegade , you can remove the skin, and i like that. I wonder if you could remove the skin on this tank. Not that i would want to buy it, i don't like low alpha guns.

It’s a weird tank and is quite rare because not many people have bought it but if crew 2 happens with the same instructor mechanics, you’ll have 2 sets of special crews, similar to the Sabaton and Offspring crews.

Yeah, bet your money on some undisclosed update maybe happening sometime in the future.

The TV series is good, the tank you can easly avoid to buy it.

Things they could maybe should do with special crews on tanks.

But probably will not.

Put the crews straight in the garage not trained for any tank exactly the same way you do with other special crews we win.

 

I would think very few players want or need a crew trained for a premium tank its completely pointless unless its the only tank of that nationality and type you have.

First thing I do with a standard 100% crew that comes with a premium is dump them into the garage.

If Its a special crew same thing untill I can retrain them for 50% off the price.

Even more of a problem come crew 2.0 as the 8 special crew will become 8 trainers and be replaced with 2 standard looking avatars representing the crews.

 

I do like that we get 3 tank skins 2 of which can be used on other tanks.

400 view range excellent decentish armour clip potential decent gun depression good.

average pen on the gun but excellent premium fairly standard for this type of tanks, however thats a bad thing for an autoloader.

Single shot you can use a premium round when you need to and hats fine, with the autoloader you are committed to firing all 3 premium rounds whether you need to or not.

Otherwise you are spending too much time reloading the magazine and missing targets.

Its the reason I turned this tank down when it was introduced, I like it but the low standard pen and autoloader combo kills an otherwise great tank.

Come Crew 2.0

and there will be a empty wind blowing through both EU1 & EU2 Servers

and then soon afterwards just the one single Server EU1

 

with just memories of up to 100k+ players at times like Xmas on the EU Servers, and looking something more and more as time goes bye like the NA Server Small

 

*€1000's to buy WG Premium Gold* to convert 100 or 200+ Crews (more for some long term 8+ years players) into another WG Cash Cow idea for farming big €€££$$ into WG Cyprus Bank Account

2 days laft to run on my 30% discount coupon, I would have got the T42 if you let me use the coupon for that.

You could have got between £21 and £31 from me depending which bundle I bought.

Since you don't want the money I plan to buy one days premium with it and the same with future coupons so long as you don't offer me an alternatibe.

So thats about 65 pence you will gain.

 

Sorry but with Christmas and loot boxes coming I do not need gold.

I have over a years premium and the LBs will top that up as well.

Also every single tank on sale in the store that is not on offer and I can use the coupon with I already own.

So its really up to you alow discount coupons to count against all tanks or get 65 pence.

 

I cannot say for certain I would have used all the 7 or 8 coupons I got this year but if it were not for the restrictions I would have used more than I did.

possible but I don't think so, there have been many messages of doom and gloom over decisions WG have made and they have not come to much.

 

Some maybe most of what I saw of crew 2.0 was good and of benefit to players.

there were problems and some unknowns but on the wrole they would save me a lot of cash and credits if they came in.

 

I could end up with fewer but better crews run single crews accross multiple tanks up to 3 tanks per crew.

Gew 3 free skills have no crew mismatches.

My only problems came with some of the bonuses and the unknown top level crews could get to.

Once they clear those points up I think its probably a good thing.

I am not sure if I have ever used one of those coupons since I started playing, maybe a few years back when I first played. I've had masses of them and they just end up sitting there. Wargaming missed a trick there to say the least since if they were genuinely useable on ANYTHING in the store I would have spent way more money.  :coin:

The T42 does not have an autoloader.

Yeah I really don't know where I got that idea from, must be confusing it with another tank.

I remember reading a post and someone complained about the very long reload.

Weird

The T69 is a similar tank in many ways, including how it's named. Main difference being that it's an autoloader with rather poor gun handling.
