As someone who has both of the American reward tanks, this really excites me.  I might actually play them a lot more now.

When will these Clan Rewards tanks be available?

  - and are these the ones that now cost 4,000 Bonds?

They will be available as they have been now for years - through the Campaigns that run (usually) once a year. You will still need to compete and earn your position to be able to (ahem) purchase the reward tank. I do not believe they will ever be available to purchase outright without being a part of the Campaigns.

I'm anxious to see the buffs put into practice... the American meds need a little love for sure.  A nice bonus to hear about the VK 7201K buff; it's already pretty solid.

It makes sense with the growth of the game and the premium time and dollars that go into campaigns to make sure the reward justifies the expense.

 

It might also be relevant that most grab the 907 (myself included) and given the "reputations" of the rest, wouldn't have made having them a priority.

The M60 is on my wishlist because there’s one parked in my hometown. I may have to pick it up before the 907 depending on these changes.

I've only been here since June of last year and wasn't with a clan that participated in Clan Wars until recently so I get confused sometimes.  Especially when you click on Cabbage's link about the "Global Map tanks" and in the related column next to it is the link to this: 

 

https://worldoftanks...l-map-season-7/

 

Which is the current "Global Map thing" that my clan is participating in right now.  So please forgive my ignorance in this regard but I still don't understand exactly when and where the "Global Map Clan Wars with No Tank Prizes" differs from the "Global Map Clan Wars with Campaign Tanks as Prizes if you Qualify."  You should have seen me the first time my clan had me participate in the Global Map - I kept silent about not being able to see the enemy b/c I had no clue what they meant by saying "Fog of War" beforehand. That and I kept waiting for the arty strike to hit me once I was spotted...

I of course had the idea of proposing that some of the newer CW Reward tanks would be stronger than typical tanks of their respective tier but get -1/+2 (for tier 8) or -1/+0 (for Tier 10) match making. That way while they're stronger than a typical tank of the respective tier, their balanced to only meet at most one tier lower.

You might want to go read the developer's conference notes from last month.  They say they're going to make reward tanks available for purchase with bonds for everyone.  I'm pretty sure they're talking about these.

Buffs to prem ammo, as if it isn't used excessively already.

The main problem with M60 is its gigantic size with no armor and lackluster speed, yet they fixed none because WGs stubborn motto is "similar tank, different playstyle" (30B vs Leo). The gun buffs are imo not worth it enough to play over the stronger meta focused M48 and the measly 1.7kmh extra top speed is a hilarious touch from them too. Seems like another bad case of AMX 30B, a lot of people will play it the first months then see it's nothing special and leave it to collect dust once more. 

 

M60:

Max speed/Min speed: 50 (+1,7) / -20 km / h
Penetration: 268 / 350 (+20) / 53 mm
Accuracy at 100 m: 0,33 (-0,02)
Aiming time: 1,6 s (-0,2)

Why don't you just give away a "Nuclear Reset Button"?

One day, WGNA will advocate to the devs for the T95/T96 medium line to be implemented into the game.

 

Another vehicle, the T95E6, that should have been in the US tree, is instead made into another CW reward to join the M60. Can't even put in the M60A1 to make up for that stupidity but instead implement more broken Russian tanks.

If they are limited to clan wars only, seeing they are clan wars tanks, no problem.  What you're gonna do is drive more players away with more brokenly OP tanks given to the best players that already have the skills they need to do better in any tank.   Good job making the game even LESS balanced than now.  Pretty sad move.
