Is not even Black friday yet (for red WG police gang, thats how it is called, Black friday, is not racist or anything)!

 

How many tanks we have on sale last weeks is insane...

 

703 II, 50TP, Borat, ProGhetto, ISU 122, Somua, Cent 5/1, now this ISU, T77, CDC (in 2021?), T42.... whats going on, this is constant cashout policy. Yet there will be black friday... And we are 3 weeks from Xmas calendar and Xmas gambling boxes, probably with IX premium vehicle (my bet is reverse autoreloading tier IX soviet medium). 

 

It is kind of suspicious whats going on rn in the premium shop :D

Not really, they need to sell all the tier 8s before they open the floodgates with tier 9 premiums

Everyone knows what is going on - T9 Premiums have started - or will be coming and therefore the need for T8 Premiums will drop.

and everytime someone buys one - its 30GBP/EUROs into a bank account - soon they will be no reason to buy them - as long as there is a T9 version or nation in the tree they can sell instead...

This has been going on since March April this year. Before, the good Premium tanks were more sparsely sold. I think the only exception is the EBR 75 but I think that was because it was a Black Market sale? Anyway, as Saxsan says, WGing are probably gearing up to sell tier 9s.

Under current guise - tier IX premiums are trash.

 

Each tier higher should get a larger multiplier, but the one that has been released has same multiplier as tier VIII - but much higher costs. They won’t replace tier VIII as credit generators if that remains the case.

The multiplier for the prem tier 9 is fine as you'll be in more tier 9 & 10 battles so there's more xp in the pool. More xp means more damage to farm and more damage equals more credits. 

 

The problem is the current tier 9 prem is rubbish so you're not really able to take advantage of the greater hit points of your enemies. This will change as the more new tier 9 prems come out power creeping the older ones. It's the WG way.

remember when you took the cannon from the tech tree and alter you reintroduced this premium version? wasn't the only tank that was reintroduced as premium!
this tank hits hard ... if it hits... second just as easily a tier 7 medium or light tank can wipe the floor with it!

This tank has a log poking out the back of the cabin.

Rant warning! I despise this tank. It's the only premium i almost rage sold. Let's start with the good things. The pen and alpha. Everything esle sucks. You miss shots that you have no business missing and the long reload makes it very punishing. Imo if you want a campy td get the S1. Comparable pen,much better gun handling and YOU HIT WHAT YOU SHOOT AT. Couple this with nice mobility and auto bounce for 90mm guns and lower and you have a much better td.

Just play the tech tree ISU-152. Load premium shells. Better pen. Same alpha. Lose a few thousand credits. Keep your real life money. You'll only play it now and again anyway so the credits aren't a big deal.

And don't forget tankers. Keep your eyes on the battlefield for more tanks that were removed from the tech tree and later sold as a premium.
