Waiting for the Edelweiss myself too.

 

As for why "Black". Today is Black Friday, the infamous shopping day in the western sphere. This year's promotional campaign centres around several reskinned tanks in the "Black/Shadow" series. So if you fancy the paintjob or just want options on what prem vehicle to get, this is for you. The rest of us non-interested folk will just watch in bemusement.

 

@TechnoGore: I heard that there might be more releases over the weekend, but nothing confirmed. Sorry. I would like to see the Butz too.

I have discovered a new selling point for the black t-34. If no one has it, even I could triple mark it lol

edit: it only took ~150 battles since release, but I finally saw a black tank

Sheesh, it is your choice to spend the money or not, explain again how it is a scam?

 

It ain't a scam, but how ridiculous for WG instead on implementing new tanks or at least a beautiful skin on the same tank, they just used Photoshop and to black we go.
And yes, it's the individual choice to spend the money or not, but judging from the product, it's not worth the buying.

 A new skin that "centres" around several reskinned tanks in the "Black/Shadow" series is something that players will be interested, not something that you could do with Photoshop yourself.

The Butz would be epic. The contrast between the White Swiss bear and the black hull would be amazing.

 

Though if they Black IS-6 came out i'd get that. need an excuse to get one for research purposes.

You know it's the same like the normal IS-6 but with the black paint and camo, right?

If they had put black mutz in shop, I would have bought it since I am interested in getting a mutz. Odd that EU selling it bus Asia won't. Missed out on some dollars there WG.

 

Also, I haven't seen any yet and I have been on all day. 

 

Well, several players already buys it...

Spoiler

Bottom line: someone will buy an 'unique' premium tank when offered.

Why oh why is there a "New" T34 tier 8 American Heavy Tank on sale?

 

Is this tank different in any way from the stock T-4?
Yes, it's black.

Effectively the T34 Black has exactly the same stats as a stock T34 with camo applied.

 

So why is this in the shop?

To make WG customers pay more money.

 

Should I buy this Premium Tank?

If you already own a T34, then No. Just mod your existing tank with a Tank Skin.

If you do not already own a Tier 8 Premium American Heavy Tank, then buy the T26E5 instead, it's a cross between a Pershing and a T32 and play better than the T34 in almost every way. But hurry, as I doubt this tank will be on sale for long.

If you are insane, or have more money than sense, then buy the T34 Black.

 

The T34 used to be an excellent Tier 8 premium tank, and in the hands of a skillful player it still is. However power creep has set in, the T34 feels sluggish and ungainly (I think it has some of the worst soft ground resistances for it's tier). It has a slow to reload trollish gun which relies heavily in RNG to decide if you will hit or penetrate the target. Of course when RNGesus is on your side, this tank is amazing (especially hull down), but most of the time it's mediocre at best.

 

If the T34B had better terrain resistance, more power, a more accurate gun which fired faster then I would probably buy it. Oh wait, I did. It's call the T26E5.

i'm disappointed with the Mutz B, no Swiss Bear.

To make WG customers pay more money.

To be exact; this is tie-in of WoT NA 'Black Friday' promo where WG thinks US consumer will buy everything on Black Friday. And why it also appear in ASIA, who knows, but God help Tan if other server got some promo and ASIA passed it.

To be fair, this 'promo' missed the meaning of Black Friday, where stores and retailers sold many items in reduced price. Should be discounted for at least 20% to be worth look at.

Addendum 1: that only you can see your custom skin paint. If you (not OP, you the reader) are that narcissistic and want to show off how different your tank's paintjob then go ahead, but T26E5 Patriot or Mle.49 Liberty is way more pimpin'.

Addendum 2 : basic T26E5 and Mle.49 bundle seems will be sold permanently on ASIA premium store, so take your time.
