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.

 

I've seen no stats for VC, but by what posters say, it's a little bit "better" ?? than the Tech tree Firefly ?

So why don't I just buy the Firefly and save $.  ? 

ANY compelling reason for the VC over Reg. Firefly ?  Compelling enough to give WG cash ?  Truth.

Playstyle, and another Medium trainer

 

Six plays his tech tree Firefly like a TD.


Remember that the initial basis of issue was one per medium Troop, replacing one of four.

 

After the Germans caught-on to the Firefly thing, they became the priority target - and stood-off a little more to support the other three.

Abrams never came with Thunderbolt 7, just a normal zero skill BiA crew.

 

The commander that came with my Thunderbolt is named Abrams.  However he is a First Sergeant

Mine isnt. You got lucky with the random name generator if you got Creighton Abrams as the commander (as that is a possible option). Or you changed the name after the fact. Either way Abrams was never included with Thunderbolt 7.

LOL, WG... you already burned me several times with premium tanks. Considering this, do you really expect me to buy another "fool's special"? :trollface:

I checked.  The commander's last name is Abrams, but his first name isn't Creighton.  Abrams is in the list of possible last names in the game client.

So why am I having a problem with buying it? I have premium time but I see no sense in buying the $69 bundle so I opted to buy the $17 standalone. But when I go to buy it the page shows "This bundle is not available to you. I sent a ticket to support two days ago and so far no reply.

Yes it is... (Creighton is also a possible first name in the client for the record). But what Im saying is the tank did not purposely come with a commander named "Creighton Abrams" (which is the name of the real life person who commanded Thunderbolt 7. You got lucky with the random name generation that happened whent he tank was delivered to your garage with its crew. So when you said:

You were wrong. Abrams never came with his tank. It came with a randomly generated 0-skill BiA crew and nothing more.

Thank you Capt. Obvious!  I guess you completely missed where I said, "I checked.  The commander's last name is Abrams, but his first name isn't Creighton."  I don't go into personnel files of all my crew members and check their first and last names.  I saw my commander had the last name of Abrams as assumed everyone got the same crew names.  So, I already said that above that the tank did not come with Creighton Abrams.  Try reading next time before replying.

Want to sell more Fireflys to and premmo time, should of added a discount on the Firefly for existing and new premmo account holders.  It's marketing and sales 101. Being the "first" to own one is not much of an incentive to buy one.  Matter of fact, it gives premmo account holders more time to procrastinate about buying one.

Jeezus, WG is so desperate for income, you can see the sweat beading on their forehead. Here's a tip WG, do a survey on how many Millennial generation play this game. Because they are the only generation I know that have a "I want it now and can't wait" mentality.
 

So what you're actually saying is you want players to pay $15 for early access.

 

Sad.
