Equipment sales again? Really?

 

They were on sale less than a week ago...

 

Maybe instead of just UK tier 8-10 being on sale, you could make all tier 8-10 on sale?

 

Or would you rather essentially copy-paste last year's specials...

 

Edit: Love the new garage by the way... looks identical to the standard one. *Hint hint* :sceptic:

I must have missed in the actual portal announcement and in the premium shop where it says the 131 has a 'unique' camo and can't have regular camo applied. Does it get the camo bonus?

Odd discounts

 

Someone made a typo?

 

None of the UK premium tanks are discounted in-game.

there are actually physical differences btw jp tiger and tiger 131. One of them is 20kg heavier. Makes a totally new tank with drastically different play style im looking forwards to.

Its nice to have a realistic German Tiger I in the game instead of the fantasy one at tier 7.

And it can face the new T8 prem tanks with it's glorious 145/194 pen. :facepalm:

Honestly, if they just gave limited MM on this tank it would sell good but then again limited MM is a thing of the past.

Just too bad, I was interested with it but facing the new T8 prems and VK100 with a short "88" is not my idea of fun.


When an enemy Arty "one shots" 2 of your teams' heavies and you're in a heavy tank, you know you're screwed.

A heavy tank should have armor and a big gun, if you don't have either then you're not.

could you change the emblems on this Tigger? The Thunderbolt's big white star emblem (not the Thunderbolt VII inscription) could not be removed for our own choice emblem.

 

*wobble* *wobble*

TBH you'll only see 3 tier 8s in a game and there's a good chance that at least one of those will be a light or arty, so you're not going to be fighting vk100s a lot.

The point being, Tier 8 is not the place to be specially with the plethora of new Tier 8 prems and to add to that T4 tanks can no longer meet T6.

With that, you'd know that the format of 3-5-7 would not apply to your T6 tank. And given that the new MM loves to put you on bottom tier often, you'd be facing those T8 prems more often that you'd like.

Let's be honest, when you see T8 tanks it's most often defender/chrysler/nameless/patriot and liberte in that order.
