Hey Folks, 

 

Quick announcement for ya: The T1E6 and the T14 are currently being offered on the Premium Shop in a variety of bundles.


The T14 features a forgiving armor profile and a decent gun for its tier. There aren't a lot of tanks that give me trouble in my Pz. V/IV but this is one of them. While it doesn't feature particularly aggressive frontal armor, its reinforced sides make this thing a corner-hugging, sidescraping machine!

 

The T1E6 on the other hand is a relatively easy to pick-up, solid all around light tank for its tier. Players looking to get a taste of scout gameplay might want to try out this vehicle to get a good idea of the general playstyle.

 

I am not KrzyBooP, nor do I have details on the interior (last I checked it was standard milspec, really not sure where he gets all these custom interiors done but I'm looking to get my car seats reupholstered so perhaps I should have a chat with him...) but I can give you my personal guarantee that I won't get offended should you lob a few rounds my way on the battlefield in your shiny new T1E6 or T14 ;) 

For pricing and details, please head on over to the article on our news page.

Does this mean the Te-Ke is coming up for sale soon?  That's the only gift tank I've missed.

Why even have more sales in pref MM tanks at this point?

An American tier5 HT with an tier4 M3 medium gun, like that, gets it done even with prem rounds...........sure.

At least the T14 has decent armor.  The tier 4 P.26/40 simply outclasses the tier 5 M4 Improved in nearly every area.

I cannot believe WG tries to sell another preferential MM tank after saying they are going to change them and you're going to pay to get them exchanged... First the Mutant and after the T14. The worst you put the JgTig 88 back in the shop after saying you wouldn't do it and funny enough, the JgTig 88 has special MM. I must say, Chapeau !

Why don't you guys add a note (in large print) saying that "Hey the premium MM tank that you're buying today, won't have premium MM in the near future"?

 

Don't you think that a little bit of honesty on WGNA part be appropriate?

I have a T14 from the stone age, sleazy business practices WG, throwing this "Specials" up for old premium MM tanks on the eve of their rework into some unknown vehicle, and on top of it they're in inflated bundles.... speak with your wallets ladies and gentlemen

If that is the case, bring back offering the Tier V Premium M4A2E4 SHERMAN.  Then it would be complete with the Fury and Thunderbolt.

But at the same time, the shop doesn't advertise PMM as a feature of the tank. Like at all. I don't think they ever really did.  

 

And technically by both the ToS and EULA, WG has always had the right to change any tank at any time. They just avoided changing premiums when possible.

So, what you're saying is, it's not an issue for the new player who doesn't know it has PMM, and is only an issue for older players who knows it has PMM and considers it a major selling point?

While it's true that WG's ToS and the EULA allow them to change the game on a whim, but don't you think it'd be ethical if they stopped selling PMM tanks until after they remove that feature from the game, or at the very least inform would be buyers who might not know that PMM is being removed before they purchase one?

 

Only a small percentage of WoT players ever come to the forums, so a great many would have no idea these changes are incoming.

EULA is not an excuse. EULA is not something that is superior to WG and they have no choice but to follow it. WG created this particular EULA purposely to protect themselves from any liability from their customers assuming that percentage of their customers will be unhappy with what they do. Just because WG require customers to accept EULA it does not mean that it is OK to screw their customers. I have purchased a lot of premiums, and the problem is that WG changes game so much that after a while any premium becomes useless in the game. While premium stats are not nerfed, everything else changes so much that premiums over time don't perform at the level they were on the release day. The content where premium is used is just different making experience different (worse). Buying any premium from WG means getting (some) rights to play that content in their game, but unfortunately the initial experience rapidly changes due to game changes. If WG would treat customers with respect, they would write note in capital letters above every premium they sell, that experience of playing this premium will rapidly change due to game changes. This problem is typical to many MMO games. New content must be more powerful to create sales, so then old stuff needs to be buffed, but it takes time and not everything gets buffed. It's a never ending story.

Here is a replay of my T-14, if interested on seeing how it really holds up in battle.
