LOL I love this one!

Max speed of IS-7 increased from 50 to 59.6 km/h.

Is the IS-7 being made a medium now?

Apparently, there are no other buffs to it... meaning this is a pointless buff.  *Points to the high-top speed, but insanely slow AMX-40*


DO want the Leo 1 though!

get out.

whats the point anymore of buying gold and going Premium  when you just keep making it everything for non premium user can get also how about you rise our credits and exp income we are paying customers and we keep getting shit on all the time i'm not going to pay anymore this is just bad customer service you just lost a paying customer might not mean much to WG 1 customer but soon enough other will stop also than you might want to wake up to yourself s.

3 things we pay for when becoming premium.
1.50% income/exp
2. able to make 3 man platoons
3.able to make tank companys

so you are taking 2 things away from us and just keeping 1 thing for us the 50% this is crap

The 50% income/exp is a massive thing when playing the higher tiers.

Ever played without premium account? Profitability stops at tier VII. To play Tier X tanks one has to grind their Tier V tanks for days to raise the funds needed to continually run them. To play competitively in CW, with the gold shells and all, we have to play Tier V for weeks.

I've just tried prem account as a deal with my clan, and it makes quite a great difference in credits. It's actually quite cunning for WG: they'd show the game as F2P, when in reality you need massive amounts of free time - or pay cash - to stay competitive at the endgame.
