Great to hear! Hopefully it survives super test and actually makes it here to the live server.

 

I doubt they will change it much because it was a fairly balanced tank to begin with.

I always thought so (balance wise), but I will wonder what it might be once they're done with it (they seem to tinker too much with nicely balanced tanks)...

Well if you compare the stats the only major changes were the 250 HP buff, -10/+20 gun depression, and 221 pen(I think its 221 atm). They hardly changed anything else other than bringing it to tier 8 standards but my guess is it will likely lose a little bit of pen but keep the gun depression and HP buffs as they are right now.

Well that was the intention of this suggestion to bring it back as a premium. The thing with the Awful Panther is that its a fake tank which WG made and when someone notified them of a somewhat obscure LT project the Sp1C WG replaced the Awful Panther with that. That said I knew the most likely way to have the tank brought back was by it being released back as a premium. Its easier to convince WG to bring a tank back if they know there is money to be made which going by the poll that is likely what convinced them.

Are you asking me what tank I will suggest next? Well the answer is nothing given how it took a friggin year and a half for this tank to be implemented as a premium. Half if not 3/4ths of the posts in this thread are bump posts by me so I'd rather not go through this again lol.

Really the only well known tanks the tree is lacking would probably be the Brumbar and the Sturmtiger both of which could be placed around tier 5 to6 for Brumbar and tier 8 for the Sturmtiger giving them both long reloads, slow shell velocity, crap mobility and they could work.

 

Obviously they will be TDs and require some good aiming to work with that laughably slow shell velocity like the Alecto's derp gun which damn near works like an SPG with that gun arc at long range LOL.

After 190+ posts, 21k+ views, 200 votes, and 1 and a 1/2 years of support this suggestion has FINALLY been implemented as a tier 8 premium on Supertest so thanks to everyone for the support. This is one of the very rare times WG listens to the NA population for suggestions lol.

The "Awful" Panther by many is considered bad but a lot of people will recall this tank being fun and agreeing that it fits the role as a Premium. Its such an oddball tank that was neither overpowered nor underpowered as it used a Panther hull mounting a VK28.01 light tank turret using either the 10.5cm and 7.5cm guns. The tank was hardly ever considered a threat unless your tank was lighter than 40 tons then it could deal quite a bit of ramming damage if it didn't outright ram kill you. On top of being one of the best pound for pound ramming tanks(fun wise) its 7.5cm gun allowed for it to snipe and its 10.5cm allowed for some decent derp gun action.

 

My reasoning for this thing to be a premium is because chances are we are more likely to see a tank brought back as a premium rather than a normal tank and well the awful panther was the most balanced light tank in the game making it a  perfect candidate to be a premium. As for its stats I say it should be in its pre removal fully upgraded state staying at tier 7 as shown by the screenshot below of the tank before it was swapped out for the SP1C. Only real change I could see it getting is potentially increasing its HP a bit given how crazy the meta is for the game right now.

OH and Wargaming if you actually bring it back for the love of god don't put any Wargaming logo junk on it like how you did with the AMX 13 57 or that premium M41 Bulldog...everyone hates that crap.

P.S. Mind giving one to me for free if you bring it back as a premium? lol

 

 

 

 

EDIT: This thread is now a year old and with over 170 votes and 3/4ths of people in support of it...at this point WG just bring the damn tank back already so I don't have to keep bumping this thread.:sceptic:

 

 

Stupid idea. Take the tank away from us and then reintroduce it later for money - thats a great model. Your mindless avatar explains it all fanboy.

Now If I'm a fanboy I guess that makes the 100 or so players in support of this out to be fanboys too.

 

Logic must be something that eludes you.
