There is a blurred tier 5 premium tank there. Any idea what it could be?

That is the Mathilda Black Prince

Wish the Comet could use the OQF 17-pdr Gun Mk. VII. I feel kind of helpless in tier 9 matches. I cant wait to get to the Centurion though.

Who's writing the VO script for your voice actor?  Is it being translated from Russian or something?  Very awkwardly worded in spots.

The scripts are indeed translated from Russian and, ideally, they come through the NA content team for a re-interpretation before being sent back for VO work (believe me, sometimes they come in very very rough)--this one doesn't appear to have received the required attention.  Hopefully you're able to extract the information from the video, there are some funky phrases and terms in there.

Whew. At least you guys are admitting that your translating team isn't always on the ball. Although there is something rather endearing about the clunky, ever-so-slightly... off language present in even the most well-translated videos.

I hate to say it but the video really did more to uninspire than anything else.

First they totally skipped over the Comet like it wasn't worth talking about, then they talk about the Centurion being heavily armored when it is pretty common knowledge now that the 110mm of listed front hull armor is really only 76mm outside of a narrow strip where the upper and lower plates meet.  The final insult to injury was how they blantely say there is absolutely nothing special about them and only that some people might find them interesting to play hehe.

All in all probably the worst promotional video I have ever seen based on the message it was giving everyone.  Honestly it is almost like Wargamming doesn't actually want people to play Brits.

Oddly enough, though, I seem to be enjoying them.  Guess I am one of those rare few that find them interesting hehe.
