 If you are just looking for a tier 6 premium then wait to see if the Cromwell B comes up for sale.  Best tier 6 premium out there.

 

For organized play maybe. For pubs either the rudy or 85m is going to be far more solid with the chaos of the randoms.

Best deal of the Advent calendar so far. You get a good tank plus five zero-skill BIA crew and a garage slot all for just $17.99. If you need good American crews, buy more then one.

 

I had absolutely no interest in this tank at all... and after it's being phrased like this I am genuinely tempted.  I have a Jumbo crew wrapping up their second skill along the Ram II and  the Pilot to train them.  But, I want to go higher up the line and have no interest in losing my Jumbo (currently one of my favorite tanks in the game).  This might be the impetus to head towards the Pattons.

I got it for the crew so I can train it for my T92 Light. Sold the tank...again. I think I've bought 3 of those now and tossed the tank. The type 64 is a much better platform for that gun. 

 

You are selling the tank?!  And have have this mistake more than once?

I suppose he likes the half credit value over the full gold value?

The Tbolt is a gud tank.  A tier 6 super Pershing.

 

I wasn't too interested until I read this. I'm enjoying my new Super Pershing so far (although I'm bad in it), I love the M4, I enjoy the Jumbo (but, again, user is bad), so I will likely enjoy this tank. I won't be using it as a crew trainer since it comes with a BIA crew, but it looks like it will be fun on its own and will fit my current play style. And the price is right, relative to the other Advent Calendar items to date.Thanks!

The crew is not just BIA, it's zero cost BIA.   That means when you're training them, they get to their 3rd skill in half the time regular crews do.    Or is it 4th?   (That BIA being zero cost means the next skill doesn't double in XP required etc)   You wind up finishing the zero cost crew's 2nd skill in the time a regular crew finishes it's first.  :Bwoopie doo, is that nice....  I know that I've got a number of those crews working on their 3rd and a couple of regular crews barely into their 2nd.   And that's at 75cents a crew.

Been waiting for the thunderbolt so I can round out my tier 6 Sherman collection. Going to definitely buy it.

​If you've got it already you get a great crew, garage slot and the gold value of the tank for $18.

 

AH - I understand now!  thanks for the clarification!

On the EU server we see the Tiger 131 for sale for about the same price with a 100% 0-Skill BIA on the crew.  So, now you can choose between German or US.

They arne't as dumb as some people here think they are.  Just remember that last year is widely touted as a great event.  And they started it with the Pz. III K.

I don't think they have screwed up on the advent calendar at all yet this year..

only things I disapprove of personally is that:

they sell two shermans when it's obvious which is better

they only give a 15% discount on the premium time
