inb4 "The FV4202 is the worst premium ever"

 

Looking at the stats, I'm pretty certain this will be like the Lowe for me. Everyone bashes it, but I'm still going to like it in my own way. With a really good crew in it- it'll be a truly fantastic thing to take into battles. 226 pen? Good gun depression? Turret armor? Mobility? Pff- reload and all the other cons I can deal with.

Quite the opposite. They've given reasonable avenues for people who own the Cent AX and those who don't, and they friggin gave it to people who owned the Tier X FV4202 for FREE.

Now if I read this correct, I played FV4202 when it was tier X and I get it for free, no missions?

I did none of the mission requirements other than previously owning the FV 4202 (Tier X). I did not play a single battle in it for I was waiting for it to be replaced by the AX. I just played a game in the Chi-Ri an hour ago and at the post game screen was awarded this (terrible) tank.

Thanks WG! FV4202 was my first tier 10 medium back in 2013. :)

And if you read you'd see that one way of acquiring the 4202 P is simply having owned the 4202. The other methods are for those that didn't. 10/10 reading comprehension

Well on the bright side they are not calling this thing a "Heavy tank" like that atrocious A45

OMG ITS SO GOD DAMN SLOW I CANT TAKE IT. For a medium like this, it is a god damn struggle to make an influence in the match. For RNG's sake even the T-54 mod 1 has 2 more Horsepower per ton than this thing even with all the armor on the front! A powerful gun is only limited by the platform, and with this speed, by god it's going straight into the reserve until it can actually move. Thanks for the free tank anyway.

you are correct that it says that on the portal. However the fact that I received the tank before they posted the event makes me think they messed up and didn't intend to give it to previous owners without completing the mission.

That's how I read it..

How Do I Get the FV4202 (P)?

You have three ways to pick it up:

  1. You previously fought at least one battle in the tier X FV 4202We will gift you the tank and a Garage slot, FREE!
  2. You complete the special FV4202 (P) mission
  3. You buy it when it becomes available later in the Premium Shop and tech tree.

To the guys who are going to go out and buy one.. might as well wait a week to try it out for free when they "rent" it out to everyone with a dial up connection.

Ok next question, I got the FV.

 

- Will I get to do the missions when it comes out?

- If I do, completing them missions would compensate me for silver?
