Tempted to buy the thing. Although I think it is way too much for a Tier 6 premium tank even if it comes with a 0 skill BIA skill. Plus I don't want to give WG too much of my money already.

 

It IS way too much for a Tier 6 with 0 skill BiA.  The Berlin IS-2 comes with 0 skill BiA and it's only $25 for a Tier 7.  The WH40k KV-2 is $34 for a Tier 6.  Even assuming $10 for the skin, that KV-2 still costs as much as a Tier 7 premium.

I can imagine pubbies doing that, then licking it to try to get it to stick :teethhappy:

The W40K stuff are just re-skins of existing tanks and the VC stuff isn't. As somebody that enjoys driving a KV-2 getting a premium version? Yes please.

 

I'm tempted as well...

Maybe. just maybe WG would sell skins for tech tree vehicles to make them "premium". Better than always coming up with new premium vehicles they cannot balance even if their lives depended on it.

If they can make cosmetic skins for tanks and label them as non-historical, everyone can have their cake and eat it too (don't want to see them? set that flag).  That'd be great

 

Settings... General settings... check "Hide historical elements".

 

I don't need to see the reskins of the 40k tanks. VC tanks are, as I understand it, entirely new collision models which one has no choice but to see.

So, yes, there is a very substantial difference between the two.

So, it's definitely a GW product? ;D

 

I find it interesting that they make a premium Russian tank, but only sell the skin for the French tank.

Probably a market test to see how people feel about buying premium skins.

WG knows where their bread is buttered. Hint: It's not the Baguetteboos.

Yeah, look how long it took for us to get the 2nd French heavy tank line :sceptic:.

Not like we can give VC tank an option for different camo than base to make less annoying or anything

Comparing the Soviet and German tech trees to literally everything else is pretty interesting. Seemingly everything ever scribbled on a napkin by a Soviet or German engineer, or floated as a "Wouldn't it be cool if...?" idea gets priority over just about anything else, though particularly stuff developed by the Allies.

Who wants a second American medium line when we can get a third Russia heavy line made up of napkin rear mounted turrets:teethhappy:

For maximum salt from the forums, downtier the T20 to tier 6, add the T25 at tier 7 leading from it, then tie the line into the autoloader mediums line. There's your "second" "medium" line. And then downtier the M26 onwards (and nerf rebalance to more historical accordingly), while adding the M60A0 M60A1 at tier 10.

Maximum salt would be WG saying they have no plans to ever create a second medium line because they feel it will be to similar to the WZ-120/121 while completely ignoring they already made those tanks obsolete with the 430/430u

Not so odd when you think about it. Basically step one is taking care of the heavy cruiser line rework without removing any existing ships from the game temporarily. The next step is adding the new light cruisers and moving the line link to the Omaha and Bob's your uncle.
