Hey Tankers,

 

Starting today, March 22nd, you can pick up the Somua SM from the shop and take it out for battle! 

 

Want to know more about the tank? Check out further details and its stats here: Revenge of the French Heavy: The New Somua SM is Here!

 

Somua SM

Attention fans of the French autoloading heavy tanks: Meet the new Somua SM Tier VIII! The Somua has a playstyle similar to the AMX 50 100 or AMX 50 B and a five-round clip, making it a perfect addition for fans of French autoloaders.

 

The Somua SM is a powerful support vehicle with an opportunistic playstyle. Time your attack perfectly and you can make your entire clip count!

 

Armour: While it can't compete with the most heavily armoured vehicles, it can deflect shots from same-tier vehicles. Turret armour is the strongest frontally; combine this with very good gun depression and you can easily hide the most vulnerable spots.

 

Mobility: The acceleration is decent, allowing you to easily keep up with most heavy tanks.

 

Firepower: As with French autoloaders, main firepower depends on the burst damage, and the Somua has plenty. The five-round clip can cripple or completely obliterate any enemy, and all in the time span of nine seconds. Just make sure you're safe to reload afterward.

Wow more tier 8 premiums.  I love paying 50 dollars to get derped in the face by a Type 5 heavy.  

Give us more mid tier premiums please.  Or more pref mm tier 8s that aren't OP.  Or better yet, fix mm.

Yet another pay to win op premium. The pen with 5 shells is overkill. This game will die soon after the 1.0 hype because of crap like this and the Defender.

Hey look!

Its a new premium tank.

Haven't seen one of these for almost a week!

Maybe you guys could go back and try to rebalance all the other non-premium tanks

Of course the forum trolls have to cry and whine when the Devs release a new tank.  Such a damnned if you do / damnned if you don't with this community.  No content?  Let's cry about it together.  New content?  Let's cry about it together.  I have the tank and although it's a good tank, it's not "OP" (my opinion).  Save the tears.

Wow, neat. Too bad I’m cold turkey on premiums with the current state of RNG and some of the continued ridiculous imbalances on some of the “new” HD maps. Mines anyone?

Really would be nice if WoT would fix the sticking Match Making so tier 8 doesn't get stuck with tier 10 so maybe these premiums would be worth it

I'm not to happy going against auto loaders. I think it takes away from the game, then again I'm biased as I don't own one or want too.

WG Moderator: Is there an expiration on the X5 missions from the bundles?

 

Also, in the premium shop page "Tear up the battlefield with its 100 mm gun and massive armor!"; that right there is some blatant false advertising.

Ahem... 

(edit: see attachment) or Capture.PNG
... slightly better than the FCM 50t is hardly "massive".
 
Thanks for not releasing another OP T8prem.  Now please fix MM.

They have to promote the use of Gold rounds somehow - AND the wallet warriors rejoice.

will have to agree - so many whiners.

 

Tank is slow, no getting around that.  But is fun to play when played correctly.   Problem is, play it correctly and people scream OP.  Play it badly and people scream that it sucks.

 

Personally, I would rather play the 50/100 with a 6 shot clip but this tank has been fun the few times that I have played it even though I haven't had any "outstanding" games yet.  No need to use gold, just let it aim in.

 

Anyway, as an average player I like it.  If you haven't played it ... feel free to shut up until you do.

However compared to the AMX 50 100 I'd say thats a good chunk of armor added on. Hell the only thing the Souma's armor can't beat is the AMX M4 49's armor.
