Dear Players.

 

 

As most of you are aware, we recently removed the FV4202 replacing it with the Centurion AX..

The FV4202 will be rebalanced, and come back as a Medium Tier 8 Premium Tank in February.. for your opportunity to either earn or buy the new premium.

 

Preparation for the Centurion AX marathon.

In order to assist you wrap up the final progress on working towards the Centurion Action X, The Centurion AX tree will be on promotion with the "evolution of tanks" promotion from 1st February to 15th February.

 

Details as follows.

Spoiler

 

Earning your FV4202 - The Centurion AX Marathon.

The full details of the up coming Centurion AX marathon can be found on our news portal.

And it runs from 5th February 2016 (2pm SGT) to 19th February (2pm SGT)

 

There is various minor awards in the promotion. (Equipment / x3 crew exp / etc) but please allow me to explain in detail questions relating to the main prize).

 

Obtaining the FV4202

Two objectives are required to obtain the reward premium FV4202

 

Objective one.

Obtain 450k damage total in random battles using any vehicle that's Tier 8 to tier 10.. Over the course of the ~14/15 days the marathon goes for.

Objective two.

Obtain 750 base exp in a battle, 10 times (once per day) while in a Centurion AX, over the 14/15 days the marathon runs for.

 

Some additional notes for clarity.

1. Objective one and two needs to be completed to obtain the reward FV4202

2. Objective one and two missions do not start and remain hidden... unless you have a Centurion AX

3. A "Day" ends at midnight SGT so day 1, would be 2pm SGT when the mission starts to midnight SGT

4. So technically, based on a "day" starting and ending midnight SGT, there is 15 opportunities to obtain the 10x "daily good games's required as explained above.

 

Buying your FV4202 

After the marathon completes, the FV4202 will be put up for sale in the premium shop only as a semi-permanent premium shop tank. (permanent for now with no plans to alter this at the moment)

The FV4202 (7300 gold) will be sold bare bones with just a garage slot (300 gold) for $31.80 US.

 

 

*More information on the new FV4202 premium tank itself will be released 25th January.

 

***Addendum 15th February 2016

Dear Players.

As was promised earlier, shortly after the end of the FV4204 battle missions, the FV4202 will be available in the premium shop for sale "Bare Bones"

However due to some improvements of the tank's Technical Parameters, we have decided to postpone the sale of this vehicle and introduce it to the premium shop with the release of 9.14.

 

The full details of the Fv4204's Tech Parameters will be available in the 9.14 patch notes prior to its release.

 

Regards
Tan

ContentWG did prepare us well for situations like this.

 

Yes, there was an error in the programming that the content team were writing the news from.
So a lot of confusion to what it should be,..

I'll get the dev programming changed now to match.

PS thanks Feetfood, for the PMed notification and information.

Don't believe any tank characteristics posted from any other source yet either. They may be outdated.

30% off the Cent AX! Guess I'll have to hold off buying it for the 15% discount now. Time to get serious about grinding it out...

 

The bonus missions are a nice touch too - Thanks Tanitha.

Ooo free equipment nice

You silence those who speak the truth, and you wonder why everyone is talking rubbish

You reward those who win by cheating, and you wonder why you can't produce people who can win while playing fairly

You punish people who put in effort to play, and you wonder why all who remain are the unmotivated

Oh okay. However, Russian website published the tank details in the mission page, which I was referring to.

*shrug* worst case, it's just a collector's tank we grind out for free. Personally I'm just worried I will be so terrible at CAX I can't get the 10x part 1 done. Part 2 I've got a couple of grinds lined up, just worried it will clash with another game i've preordered for that time period... decisions, decisions.

Is it possible to postpone the missions? Some might argue about Chinese New Year but I think some of us want to rest after the campaign.

Please give us a vert stab instead of an enhanced gun laying drive.

Also, love how this mission favors the better players. A teal turd like me would take 2 hours a day, 14 days to get the damage mission done : D

Meanwhile your average yellow would suffer...(5 hours, 14 days)

There's always the wallet warrior option. WG looking out for its own interests there.

 

On a more serious note, this grind mission is already the easiest beside the FV201. I'm sure people will remember the massive grindfests that the KV-220, IS-6, SuperPershing, WZ-111 and Type 62 missions were... (I remember burning out on the Type 62 grind, that was seriously 1 tough grind)

But those missions were just simple volume-of-battles grinds.

 

This one requires skill. Damn, why skill why.

The mission may look relatively shorter or less time consuming than previous marathons but it should be taken into account that, someone who just wanted to be eligible for the mission had to grind out an "ENTIRE" line and also buy a tier 10, which is not an easy effort considering tier 10 FV wasn't a tank of choice where other better med options were available. 

I do not complain against any missions criteria of WG but why nerf the tank to be the worst tier 8 medium? thats not fair considering their policies in past T34 was given free and the performance of the tank is at par with other tier 8 premiums despite its weaknesses. These days newer premium tanks released are not much inferior to regular credit tanks for example IS3A, IS5, M46 KR, CDC, T54 proto, Mutz and not to mention IS-2, ISU 122S, Rudy, Cromwell B are better than regular counterparts. My point is, the performance of premium tanks are not same these days which used to be in past that it should be inferior to regular counterparts by a good margin. So why give us a tank which is almost useless? Why? 

Come on WG we like this game that is why we play and it is us the players who have the contribution to make it get Golden Joystick award more than once and we are proud of it. Dont let us down releasing a free sub par tank which might make it look that WG only understands money and nothing else. There's still days to release the tank, please consider improving the tank stats.

I guess I'll have to buy it at the end, which I'm sure SerB will be devastated about...

I'm a basic Green scrub with 1050-ish average damage per game. If I play to my long-term average it'll take about 430 battles to get the 450K, so I'll need to play almost 29 battles per day, every day for over 2 weeks to meet that requirement.

With 2 kids, a FT job and a (admittedly pretty average) social life, THAT bit is going to be the big issue for the likes of me. 

 

P.S. and I already have the CAX ;(

Not really a collectors tank, as stated it will be sold after the marathon fairly permanently, and for cost of tank + slot.

Not really.

Its already been postponed until after campaign 4 finishes. And then season 2 of CW starts 15th Feb.

So its kind of slotted in the gap there .. where lunar new year spans.

 

Also it requires 10x dailies over 14/15 days... so there is a lot of leeway .. not like players need to play daily for that period.

And.. then its to be sold afterwards as well.

Hello's.

 

1. Yeah December 17th :) .. but i was pressured to delay sales of the tank until global PR were ready to Global PR it..
Or in other words, we have a video team videoing the R/L sentinel at the moment, and want to sync up global PR / Media / Etc to support the Ac1 sales.
At the moment its earmarked for Feb .. but no set dates and no global syncing yet.

 

2. I don't know sorry, so I've been keeping out of the topic.
All i know at the moment, is, its due for a news release on 25th, so safer to wait for our news release soon.

 

Regards
Tan
