Its a tier 4 premium, as long as you doesn't bundle it with ridiculous amount of gold and creds i might buy one.

 

emphasis in might.


Back to World of Tanks for now.

I'll believe it when I have one in my garage.

Well apart from missing the armoured vents along the side of the crew compartment, the armour model looks about right there are a few minor points that could be improved but wouldn’t noticeably change anything as far as WoT goes.

 

Crew's wrong really, well for WoT at least. Wireless is up in the turret and is the responsibility of the loader/operator. Hull gunner has SFA to to beyond run the vickers, so should be 4 crew positions since WoT doesn’t have hull MGs.

 

It'd be better as a researchable, then you could do interesting things with it. Might be alright, WG are probably still going to want a kidney for it though.

They know a lot of Aussies will want one.  So they will put it in a package with a lot of gold or credits at a mega price.

No.

Things such as some of the rare tanks, like the PZ II J, are not put up for sale at a high price to generate cash. Its done so to limit sales / maintain game balance.

If it was about $$'s we could make more, by selling a lot more for a little less.

 

The AC1 is not labeled a rare tank, so it will not be packaged with a lot of items to limit sales.

It is likely to be premium shop only though, as it will be accompanied by AUS customization.

 

What else it will be packaged with, like gold/premium/etc is not known yet. But it likely wont be in large packs.

Tanitha might just have been trying to get you to be clearer:

AC1

This is a AC1 Sentinel.

 

AC3

This is an AC3 Thunderbolt.

 

AC4

And this is an AC4, and unlike the Sentinel or Thunderbolt it doesn't have an identification name. Judging by the dates names seem to be assigned when the tank's production was started. The AC4 never got that far.

 

So asking about a "sentinal ac iv" is a little like asking about an "M26 Lee" it's a little confusing what your question is or was.

Such an excellent post, thanks.

 

But no. Such topics are global topics, which are synced with Offices / Marketing / Media / Press Releases / etc..

While I enjoy a little bit of leeway being the producer for Asia, and having worked for WG for 5-6 years, i still need to be a little careful with discussing topics which aren't scheduled for discussion ATM.

Sweet, now the thread in AU/NZ begging for his tank can finally die. I'm certainly looking forward to this tank. I have one request for it though, make it come with a 100% crew with the most cliché Australian names you can think of.

 

Like the bundle with the Bromwell?

 

I can already think of a name for a girl crew....

The pz v/iv is the worst vehicle i have ever used and ive played just about everything. To pay $ for one now would be really stupid considering what other premium tanks are available.

 

I heard the V/IV is a decent WN8-printer though. I think it's because when it's first released there's no sprem yet and the only way to reliably deal damage in it was to load food and gasoline consumables for max ramming.

 

 

Maybe if it comes out I'd plat it with a DMax failplatoon, just to be dickish about it.

It's not? 454.44 expDamage for the V/IV is pretty low; it's almost the same as that of the PzIV (476.89) and they both go up to tier 7 only.

 

That's around 3-4 penetrating shots, or one ram-killled Crusader. Couldn't be that bad for WN8.

Then why doesnt anyone play it?

Maps have even more hills and undulations than back then, so it will be even worse now.

To pad wn8 on an account which isn't ALL seal clubber, you need to consistently greatly exceed the expected values, not just meet a minimum standard. A tier 6 with a tier 5 gun and no gun depression camo armour or speed for its class is not well equipped for doing this.

Im just trying to save you from a wasted $110 bundaroo, no concern of mine if they did sell one and you did buy one.

I'd imagine the Sentinel to play pretty much the same as the Covernanter, albeit with more armour and slightly slower. A T4 Vrusader essentially.

You’re welcome.

 

I understand that trying to get you to talk about what you don't know, or know but can't say, or don't know but can't say, or can't say you know, is largely pointless. It's trying to pick your brains over something you may not have understood so we can engage in wild speculation that's the fun part ;)
