Please either buff the IS-6 or let us have a option to upgrade our IS-6 to 252U. I don't mind to pay $$$ for the upgrade. 

I had not purchased the 252U when it released just because I had IS-6. But finally I realized I need a 252U.

 

IMHO, 252U is a noob friendly tank for new players, good guns as well as good armor which fair enough to attracted new players into the game and WG should keep selling it if they want to stay in business. 

Nowadays, most of the players still playing wot are with sophisticated skillset. The new players had no change to complete with the sophisticated players, stop selling 252U even make it worse. Think about what will happened when the sophisticated players got the 252U and a new players got a IS-6 just because 252U no longer available. I assured you the new player will never coming back!!

It's all pretty much a joke this year.  Deals aren't much of a deal as in past years.

Took a gamble on the xmas crates again this year.  $130 spent and couldn't win a tank.

Same crapas last year.

Regarding the advent calendar. Something must get lost in translation with the Russians. Isn't an advent calendar where you get a treat for each day free?

 

In the real world, advent calendars are given as a gift.

 

Armored Warfare get it, their advent calendar gives a free item every day (very good ones) AND an offer of a discount on a premium tank.

So something for everyone.

 

AND it doesn't get stuck on the one item on 24/12 for 12 days like the WOT one does.

 

But with WOT, you only get a discount on a premium you probably already have or don't want (such as the T-59 which they crippled 2 weeks after I bought it).

Now that December is almost here, the holiday season is about to kick into high gear. And few traditions are as effective at getting tankers in a festive mood as the Advent Calendar! To jumpstart your holiday cheer, we're unleashing our jolly collection of specials a bit earlier this year.

 

This time, the Advent Calendar festivities begin on Dec. 1 and last until Jan. 2, treating you to three weeks of 24-hour-only Premium Shop offers, and a final deal, valid Dec. 24 through Jan. 2. If that's not enough to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, we'll be spicing up your December with special New Year Fuss battle missions. As always, the calendar will be updated daily, offering a new challenge and a new deal. Don't miss them!

 

You can always check the Advent Calendar in the game client. It will open automatically when you launch the client Dec. 1–15. You may also open it via the in-game browser by clicking the banner in the Specials tab. From Dec. 15 to Jan. 2, you can hover over the calendar in the Garage to view the daily offers. You can also check the website here!

 I agree that the advent calendar has been a disappointment so far.  If WG doesn't offer 50% off premium year I'll be a disgruntled customer. 

 

I also agree.  Last year the 50% off premium for Black Friday was a nice surprise.  Nothing of that value was remotely found this year.   Best they had was 15% off 1 year premium which is meh.

Which is why I now spend most of my time on Armored Warfare, they value their player base and strive to keep them.

The advent thing?

It was weird and confused.

With the matchmaking changes making so many things OP or UP, some things couldn't be offered for sale while others shouldn't have been. The Blackdog is a monster in the right hands at Tier VIII; the e25 is a perennial cash cow for WG, and it was offered, but not the AMX 1357 which, too, is way OP but interesting and lower than tier VIII. Had it been offered, I would have bought instantly. And while we're on the topic of OP and not OP, how about that Mauerbrecher: yet another "Hitler's Napkin" novelty tank with history-punk camo (The Wall went up *after* world war II) offered people with deep pockets, a chance to enjoy a "point-it-that-way-and-shoot" playstyle. Go ahead, try to cap out an enemy whose last remaining tank is a Mauerbrecher. I did. It wasn't pretty, "We didn't even scratch them."

The t-92?

Had it been a tier VII tank, It would be in my garage right now. Much the same is true of the possible re-introduction of the Aufklärungspanzer Panther: it looks interesting, but if it comes in at tier VIII as anticipated, playing it will be a little rich for my skills set.


I seem to remember having seen that there is going to be some sort of "after the holidays" sale that will include something  old and something new. Hopefully, it will also be something interesting.

Oh, and in case anyone at WG is listening, thanks for the gift tank(s). I have yet to play them, but I can see they're  a lot more than free garage slots, and I like them just fine.
