Wondering if I should bother buying Prototipo Standard B right now, wait for some sale, etc etc.

Glorious derp is even more glorious as a cool looking premium.

 

 

Apparently even after all my time away I can still carry. Not that a top tier KV-2 driven by a semi-competent driver has to work incredibly hard to carry mind you.

 

As a side note, The Emperor was pleased and the machine spirit rejoiced in inflicting glorious carnage upon the heretics.

 

Damn, best I could do is a first class. When a third of the team dies within the first 2 minutes, nothing I can do even as top tier. Plus my survivability is not as good as it can be when people easily spam Code 22 rounds.

 

Just trying to get a 50% WR in this thing last night was frustrating as hell. Teams need to be freaking balanced because platoons make "random" not random. How is it fair to have a platoon of Tier 6s to the enemy's Tier 8s?

Actually recorded it. My first World of Tanks video in like a really REALLY long time.

Be prepared for some serious derp action.

I'd favor that.

It needs a unique voicebox with suitably heroic lines.

You never know.  You might think the right thing to do on Siegfried Line is to go field in your KV-2. :facepalm:

 

(Someone on my team did that a while back.)

Kind of surprised how maybe people seemed receptive tot he thought of WG removing permaskinned tanks from their accounts and replacing them with the normal tank + a styleset:

 

https://www.reddit.c...ded_in/dz29jf5/

 

Thats a large amount of upvotes for such a controversial idea. Some supportive comments too.

What's the downside, exactly? If you apply the skin then you're happy.  If you'd rather have the bare tank with camo you can turn off the skin.  I've seen people say they wish they could have the Skorpion with ordinary camouflage.

 

I wonder if they are planning a skin now for the Firefly IC... 

 

Edited PS: what IS the controversy?

Would completely solve the request/issue of players wanting a normal looking tank when WG for some reasons keeps on selling the prems with special appearances. WG, if they are smart, should get on this ASAP.

 

Gamers I believe love options. Having more options is always good because people won't feel they are forced into a few choices so would be more likely to spend.

Most people go all herp derp lawyery when anybody talks about removing already purchased content from a players account.

TBH... were I WG Id already be looking at removing every permaskinned tank (including GF and black tanks) and replacing it with a normal tank + style in the same vain as this KV-2...

Own everything. Get free stuff.

 

There's a reason why I've kept all the American cruisers from Omaha on up!

As some one who made the mistake of buying the Defender over the much nicer looking Object 252 I wouldn't mind at all, oh and the Skorpion G because its camo is ugly as sin.

Indeed, Im gonna get so much free stuff. Lots of credits. Some captains. Probably even keep the Pensacola, since it'll have the premium camo from Cleveland. Dunno if Im keeping Baltimore or New Orleans though.... probably not... need to finish my tier 9 grind though... I should work on that soon.

I too am in this boat for the Defender and Liberte. Would prefer it for all of them. Im ok with WG putting me out of the permaskin removal business...

You wont. They'll stay in the tier theyre currently in and you'll get new captain for each ship as well.

 

I have to figure out how to get my Cleveland captain to stay my Cleveland captain.

 

Could it work to put him in the barracks and stick some 0 pt rookie in the Cleveland before the patch hits?

I have seen that suggested and it cant hurt to try. I am going to do it, just incase it works.

Someone suggested that in the thread about the WH40K tanks.  Something about getting a special crew, too.  A mod said he'd kick the idea up to corporate and see what happens.

Now if only he would just kick corporate instead, we might get better results.

I think my Cleveland captain only has 10 points so I'm not losing much.

Sounds like a plan...though since I've been using my Omaha captain as my Atlanta captain it's less of an issue for me; I've been figuring for awhile that captain will ultimately wind up in Worcester.

 

That captain is a 12-pointer and has that skill where you swap out fire-chance for penetration.
