When they offer discounts on crew skill/retraining, I spend money and am happy. Win-win.

 

I get it, can't offer discounts all the time, but this is supposed to be a special 5th anniversary.

 

Also, last year, you could kind of count on camo discounts and crew discounts around once a month. I wonder how much the release of other games influenced them last year. This year they seem to be taking the NA player base for granted.

I guess that the Pz IV Hydro which was billed as "exclusive" when it was a promo with the Razer Deathadder mouse is not exclusive after all. Thanks WG!

 

 

Which exclusive tank goes on sale next?  Maybe sell us Clanwars award tanks?

 

I do not really care that the Hydro is going on sale, it is an OK tank but it is not like I can sell it or anything.  Maybe we will see some other exclusive tanks becoming less exclusive too. I'm ready to buy my M-60 now.

THANK YOU WG!

 

No, for real!

 

I mean, my wallet is safe this anniversary and seeing these ingame "specials" I can now finish my thesis in peace that I'm not missing anything.

I was off today and thought, cool, a day off that lined up with their anniversary date. Nope. Screw logic. The deals start this Friday and the x3 XP events starts on Tuesday (WTH?).

 

Should be grateful though that the HydroTonk is available today for the low price of $99.

*My credit card was ready.

Hmm oh? No premium tank sale? Oh seems like WG doesn't want my money this year.

Well too bad. I guess I'll have to spend on Steam instead.

Its a common russian-> english translation issue.

 

Exclusive= Garbage we will recycle again later

Rare= Hasn't been given to entire player base more than 3 times

 

We need to start keeping a community WG lexicon so that we know what they really mean when they promote their deals.

They said limited MM wasn't good for MM, so they were removing tanks with limited MM. But they never seem to go away, do they.

I was ready to lay down ~$50 this week.  I was hoping for a larger selection of "rare" premium tanks.  I don't care about high tier tank credit discounts. 

I would have preferred an equipment/camo discount.

 

The $99.99 package is insulting.

Funny how it goes on sale not long after the codes all died off lol.

No consumable, equipment, or premium tank sale

 

F*** THIS

 

Holdon, let me just drop $130 on the Hydrostat brb.  I mean, camo really is non existent until they fix the spotting mechanics.

 

Content_WG must be farming downvotes, oh wait.

Going to wait 4 days until x5 starts

Seems like NA gave us EU specials

meh, guess ill play another 4 years in hopes of a grander time. Seems as tho the good days are behind us. All this talk of "THE FUTURE OF TANKS" and how we are building a beautiful "eco-system"  Community and to be quite honest we just got snuffed on the biggest event of the year. Now im not one to complain for free stuff(LTP,1DayPrem, Credits ECT.) and im certainly not ungrateful for all WG has provided. But to hear of this GREATSALE all month, and we get hit with 15%  for 8-10s? cause really thats the only thing we will be taking advantage of. Lets not get going on the HYDRA? what a [edited]insult. 100$ please i know the pub matches prove most are morons but thats just insulting. A sale is a sale and beggers cant be choosers blah blah blah... but last years sale was better, year before that im sure took the cake too compared to this POS and now we are all sitting here scratching our heads wondering which tier  8 to buy. Its not the direction i thought we were headed with this community.

While I love the direction the game is going with the last patch, I find those specials very underwhelming , especially with all the competition going on .

 

I expected at least 50% off equipment or discount on crew training.

 

If you bring back a rare premium, at least make it a type 59.

Check out x3 and x5 first-win bonuses and more! Also the rare German Pz.Kpfw. IV Hydrostat and the tough Soviet KV-5 are in the Premium Shop for a limited time!

  • Distinctive and rare 'collector's tank'

unless you buy it on ebay for $45.     distinctive? idk where they got that idea.  theres nothing unique or distinctive about it.  its a nerfed old pz4.  before the pz4h got armor and spaced side.

  • Lightning fast turret and hull traverse

uh.....not really. its...average traverse for meds

 

  • Well-balanced vehicle

for a -worse than normal tank- premium whose been power creeped by buffs to normal tanks and new prem tanks.

 

  • Very accurate, fast-firing gun

Accurate yes, fast-firing......when compared to higher alpha heavy guns yes.  when compared to sherman with 76, or T-34-57, or PZ4H with 75, or pz3/4 with 75.   no.   its rate of fire is WORSE

 

  • Highly mobile

for a premium med. i guess.

lets face it, its not mobile at all compared to normal tier 5 meds.   and medium mobility for prems tends to be a joke.  examples, Super P, panther 8.8, sta-2, french m4, etc.   mobility difference between heavies is slightly better usually, but not enough to make a major difference.

 

unless your in the mutz, cdc....

 

  • High HP for its tier and class

technically true....until you compare to turan III tier 5 prem, t-25 tier 5 prem, matilda IV tier 5 prem, matilda BP tier 5 prem, ram 2 tier 5 prem, 

 

as long as you only compare it to normal tier 5 meds, and chi-nu kai and m4 sovietproved.....then yes it has more hp....for its class.     but not for its tier.

 

  • Won't see above tier VI unless Platooned with a non-preferential tank

this is about the only thing that makes it worth it.   unfortunately stuff like O-I means your gonna see ALOT of tier 6s.  which means ALOT of O-I.    which means your lack of armor(30mm front. only a bit is 80mm),  low hp, barely average mobility, and low pen will make you food.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

but hey, i'll give it a compliment.  its not the pz4s.   aka the thing so powercreeped to hell its hp/t is a joke among heavies.  with inferior hull to the med a tier below it. and a low dpm.

Content_WG still trolling for those neg reps eh?  Oh nvm.

 

Damn WGNA.  I tried to defend you last week when the whiners were complaining about free slots and the LTP but w..t..f?  Add me to the list of whine and cheese connoisseurs.  Remove your heads from your asses and let me actually spend some gold.
