So not only its a recolor of existing premium, we only offered one tank while NA get to choose from IS-6, Pz58 or T34 (for now, at least), and its offered in same price (well, just a biiiit higher) as original one.

 

Hahahahahaha no. 


Back to World of Tanks for now.

Considering the IS-6B and Pz 58B are also in the comparison record, I'd say they're coming pretty soon.

Wow, just wow.

 

I hoped we'd get another of the new premiums but instead we get a recolour. real imaginative WG.

T-44-100, T-34-85M.

 

At least when they do that they make an effort to make it look different.

The reference is to the un released kv 122 which is an old school tier 7 version of kv1s. But it's got the exact same model as kv85.....

Well, Berlin Trio is the worst offender in WoT, though we will see if KV-122 will join them in future.

 

Then there are T-34/85M, E8 Fury, M46 KR and some other premiums which quite similar with their regular counterpart but at least got some key difference to justify their existence.

 

Hopefully WoT PC won't follow AW's step here, these black version already skirted too close.

If ASIA follows NA way, we will only see Pz58 and IS-6 after this unlike console version.

Well the Swiss bear will sand in contrast to the black paint, so in theory it'll look cool.

 

I'd get the IS-6B for research purposes, i want to see why some want the IS-6 buffed.

T34 is the only black tank? hahahahahahaha what a joke. Who do you think is going to buy it WG?  Like no one, because they can see how much better the offers are on other servers?

 

Now, if you offered a black tank with an option of a silver fern on the turret you might turn the head of the New Zealanders, but just one black T34? Yeah.... nah.

As a tank collector and someone who honestly wastes too much money on this game, I love new tanks, new premiums and uhh, throwing money away. This is ummmm.......................... Analysis is required.

 

As with the T26E5 and the AMX M4 49 and the unique skinned versions, it was an alright idea, both released at the same time have a limited time and a more permanent option available for players to attain. However this makes no sense at all. We have many more premium tanks soon to be released, like my well awaited T92 Light tank (tank my damn money already) and several others just waiting to be out there, and we get re-skinned versions of tanks that have existed for years, I mean some of the oldest premiums to have existed that is still permanently available, like just no. Especially if it is 100% the same stats and all.

 

The M4A3E8 Fury, look at that as an example, It is like a normal E8 but slower and a few other things and was made to advertise the Fury movie more in some regard, and the T-34-85 Rudy, something for the fans of that polish show (correct me if I'm wrong) that exists. These are tanks that are re-skinned current existing tanks that offer something to the audience of your game. A re-skinned old premium tank that offers nothing special other than "I'm black" is outrageous. In order for it to work was to either make it an add on to the current T34, and not a separate tank that offers a unique bonus, but minor, or not do it at all, period.

 

So under my analysis, these black sales are a must do pass, don't buy a single one period. The only exception I'd say is if, and I say IF at all, the Mutz black does come out, and you don't have it but want it, might pay to get it otherwise wait longer, the rest are pointless and not worth our time, money or effort and was a waste on WGs time as well. Work on things that offer new cards to the table, like more premium light tanks, especially for the nations that don't have any higher tier ones to offer crew training potential, expand other trees like you've down with the German tree the last two years by adding like a couple of tanks that offer a different style, or give me my T92 light tank already. Any of these are more sensible than this sin to gaming. So from the words of me as a personal tank collector, I will not buy any of these Black versions of all these tanks I've already got, I'd rather buy both the patriot and normal T26E5 first, and I'm not even doing that. Yet, might wait a few months first.

 

Anyway, Thanks WG, see you in another weeks time.

I don't see why WG had to release an entirely new tank which is basically the T34 with black camoflague.

 

Wouldn't it have made more sense to offer a black camouflage paint available only in the Gift Shop for certain tanks?

I know other games make a fortune over 'skins', and if this is the way the game is going, it makes sense.

 

Considering there's no difference with the normal version, other than the colour, I'd say this is a blatant cash-grab by WG.

 

If you already own the tanks, save your money for something better.

If you're looking at getting one, you might want to consider the new black edition.

Such good value, a $50 monotone skin...  please buy it so i can openly laugh at you and get the entertainment value you paid for. $36 in Russia, still $35 too much.
