Hey Tankers,


You may have noticed a special announcement on the news portal regarding a presale for the Sherman VC Firefly. 


We're testing the waters with something a bit new, namely we are offering the option to purchase the Sherman VC Firefly ahead of its designated sale period to players who have active Premium Time on their accounts.

 

The vehicle will be offered to the general public in the not-so-distant future, however it is possible to purchase the vehicle early! It is being offered in a variety of bundles, as well as a standalone offer.



 

For all the details, please check out this article.

STILL WAITING FOR THE M36B1 .... The real Jackson!

 

That said, We'll probably pick-up a couple of these ...

 

BTW, in role-terms, every model of Firefly should really be a TD ...

I have the Tech. Tree version of the Sherman Firefly and love the 17-pound gun, so I'm very interested in this model!

Change log vehicles 1/4

Now that T-34 Shielded is for WG event and 50TP another Defenderish moneygrab that pleases the Polak while wreaking havoc on tier 6-9s, We only need to wait and (not) buy the T26E3 Eagle Seven, the Pershing prototype probably in clown camo as its name goes.

Then again, thank you for this information. Sincerely.

 

Edit: based on EU info https://worldoftanks...sk-teaser-2018/ the T34 Shielded is on activity through July and August, almost the entire two months.

While there may be some funny restrictions (like drowning 10 tanks), I hardly believe this activity has no real world money shortcut.

Then again, as tier 5 is edited as it is, there is no need to use money anyway.

I wanna buy more tanks but with the server the way it's going here I'd rather put money on my EU account.

M36B1 would be awesome as a Premium. Best of all, there's nothing to test-it's all proven (and balanced) components.

It's worth repeating. Some of us are just into collecting our old toys.

Wow, so as a guy who has bought six years of premium, who now doesn't see the value in buying it anymore, this is garbage.

 

This whale is done.

 

Schmucky practice WG.

 

I spit right back in your eye.

They missed an opportunity the sell a British "Hero" tank.  There were several Aces in Fireflies.

I'm not buying nothing more until MM is fixed, and I have been a big spender on this game in the past. No point paying to be bottom tier 90% of the time. Basically it is pay-to-be-irrelevant.

Thanks, Domo;

 

I already bought it.  I mean, why not, I already have a ready-made Berlin crew for it and it's only 17 bucks and I will get an additional X2 for my Crom/Crom B/VC crew every night in Skirmishes.

Is this Firefly any different then the British Firefly version? Or the Thunderbolt? Or the Fury?

Need specs.... I mean, I already haz a Firefly.

 

Ok, found em in another post. Basically, little better gun, little worse p/w ratio, little faster top speed. Seems ok to me.

The Tech Tree version of the Firefly is one of the tanks I wish was more historically modeled to be more dominant.   I was really excited when it got introduced and really wanted it to be great, but it is underwhelming, though I keep trying to find the play style that will make it sing.
