Its been a while since it was offered and I was in middle of midterms and school. Didn't catch it and tank isn't OP or anything for it not to come back.

Maybe but you could have bought it then.  WG was selling token (or whatever they were called for this) so people wouldnt/couldnt have to do all 14 daily objectives.

It seems like it wouldn't hurt anything.  It plays more like an American medium than the SP, it's fun, it trains well, and it's not the kind of tank that will make people whine.  But there are also a ton of premiums like that... T-44-100 for example.

They'll probably bring it back to the store one day, I've seen the FV201 and T-44-100 return to the store.

They should put a whole lots of stuff in the ingame shop for gold
T-44-100
T25 Pilot 1
Pz58 (Mutz or just as Pz58)
FV401
AC4 exp
59 Patton
KanJpz
M56 Scorpion

All those tanks have no balance problems, no wierd crews, no pef MM, not OP in any way, no premium paint job
So there is no reason not to be constantly available both in the shop and for gold in the game

Why you want to waste some money. Just give it to me. The T-25 pilot should be called the T-25 pos or T-25 pile o crap. If they buff that crappy penitration and the armor a little bit worth it but the way it is now it's not even worth free.

See, this is something I just don't understand.

 

Lots of people point to things like the K-Car as evidence of WG shifting focus to other projects and using WoT as a cash cow to fund them. (Don't ask me for links, I'm just a lazy, snarky a-hole on the Internet. Go, search, read.)

 

Yet WG sits around with a backlog of tanks that people actually WANT TO BUY and they never put them in the store. Hard to fathom, right?

 

It's almost like they couldn't get a clue if they stood in a field full of clues covered in clue cologne during the height of clue mating season.

To be honest, it's not the best tank worth spending real cash or gold on. There are way better prem tanks that that one. It's just okay, nothing special.

I have most of those tanks you mention. I want the Pilot. I wasn't online or catching up on WoT news. Too busy with test and studying. Came back and found out they had a marathon to get a free tank. 

 

From what I've seen, in my personal experience, the Pilots are very decent tanks. Great speed and decent gun, plus it looks amazing with that turret cover on.

Pretty sure a lot of people worked hard for that tank I am asking Wargaming to delay on this idea to give the people who earned it more exclusive time with it. I am not talking about the people who spent money on the missions but about those who ground out through that entire marathon of missions. You have my respect for that. So if you agree with my position please sound off in here.

I like my pilot. Kinda  like the T-44-100. Not amazing at anything but not bad either. One of the few balanced tanks of the game. I grinded most of the missions. I think I had to buy1 of the missions tho

if they want money all they have to do is release the tv-8 tank

 

weird looking tank: check

massive slope for troll armor: check

lots of spaced armor to screw HEAT/HE: check

bonus: one of the proposed engines was nuclear for  all the fallout / post apocalyptic fans :hiding:

I earned the Pilot. It sucks. Mostly because of the gun. You won't reliably pen and you must keep your hull hidden or just be trashed due to poor armor. I would not recommend this tank unless you're a collector and it is the last tank you want to get.

 

Expect to shoot a lot of premium. In that case you "might" take it as a crew trainer, but the T26E4 is so so much better.

Exactly, why doesn't WG trickle down premium tanks into the tech tree for gold. What's the point in saving up gold if you can't do much with it?

 

EDIT: Love your avatar btw!

Not to be harsh, but in the hands of a competent player, the Pilot can shine. You are playing the tank wrong if you are trying to rely on its armor. You need to use it's speed to move around and flank enemy tanks. That's the thing I love about the Pilot. I see so many good players flanking me with it and it is annoying for me to deal with since they just run away then catch you off guard again later in game. I like tanks like that.

I probably have 40 premium tanks - paying RW money for a bunch of pixels on my monitor that I don't even own. Next time I call someone a &#!$% in chat, they could ban me and close down my account.


But I think the reason they DON'T offer all their tanks all the time is that is a way of creating an bit of exclusivity. Folks will pay more for a tank that everyone else can't have. It's supply and demand.

And I think they're probably doing all right financially, so want to string WoT out as many years as possible. I'm probably good for keeping one programmer on the payroll all by myself ... :/
