Guess what? More news! 

 

If you aren't familiar with the Tier VII or VIII of the week, we pick a different tank each week from either of those Tiers and bundle it with Premium Time and other goodies as a bonus. 

 

This week, we've got the Löwe! Löwe means "Lion', and this tank lives up to its namesake. It is deadly accurate with its cannon, and it can chip away at your enemy's health. It has strong armor as well, making it great for side-scraping. 

 

The Löwe is not the speediest, but it can take quite a few hits and can send some shells flying back to the enemy in return. 

 

The sale is from June 22nd until June 29th (04:20 PT | 06:20 CT | 07:20 ET).

 

The Bundle contains: 

  • VIII Löwe   
  • 30 Days Premium Account
  • x5 XP for the first 20 wins in the Löwe
  • 1x Garage Slot

 

Be sure to check out the Store for pricing. 

 

We also have a few other Bundles for sale, so be sure to check them out in our portal article here - Tier VIII of the Week: Löwe Heavy Tank

 

Thanks, y'all!

PS: I'm sorry I don't have a cool Emporium. Who is ready for Gnomon's Grand Gnarly Tier of the Week Emporium?! No one? I get it. We got shut down three years ago due to the opossum infestation. It was unfortunate.

I'm just here to say that if this vehicle were sold in my Premium Currency Bundle Emporium (working title)  it would be a certified-pre-owned vehicle, and all the interiors would be OEM instead of having some gaudy snake-skin seat covers or an 8-ball shifter knob. 100% German Steel or your money back, guaranteed.

Lowe is a legit tank. I'm statistically better in the Lowe than I am in Type 5, Defender, Object 257, E-75. Which are all solid tanks.

 

If you love accurate guns, angle your armour well, and carry 2 repair kits (engine gets damaged ALOT), you'll LOVE the Lowe and the MAD credits it makes.

I can not open the client right now.  And I can not remember if the discount on the tank of the week applies to gold purchases out of the tech tree.  Is there a discount on a gold purchase of the tank?  Ive always wanted a Lowe and have gold to use.

Gnomon, Awhile back I commented on how you bore an uncanny resemblance to Sigourney Weaver in a bad wig (At the time being quite sure that WAS Sigourney Weaver in your pic).

 

   Anyways, recalling that just now and having always had a penchant for sticking my foot in my mouth, I just thought to myself, "You dummie, that's probably really her, some apologizing may be in order if it is."  Anyways, some googling was required to put my mind at ease, and I can't even begin to express the relief I felt when finding your profile pic. under a search for Sigourney Weaver!  -TB

Haha yeah, it is from a super old photo shoot or promo where she took a bunch of pictures with the cat.

 This is amazing. You win the Alliteration Prize for today! Unfortunately, the prize is just more alliteration and a broken-down Emporium.

Lowe currently sits on the Meh Tier on my list of tier 8 premium ratings, a rating which does not seem to sit well with a lot of people, but I'll lay down the reasoning for it.

 

Pros: It's health pool is really good, has a decent enough turret front and the depression to go hull down, and has really good gun handling and accuracy.

 

Cons: It's morbidly slow, and pair that with its large size means that if it gets caught in a bad position, it will take fire. Its DPM is also one of the lowest in tier 8, tied with the T34 at ~1650. Its armor is also lacking and worst of all, flat, having a textbook example of a large weak lower glacis plate that most tier 6 top guns can penetrate without premium ammo.

 

It's a niche support tank on the battlefield, and there are other heavies, including premium ones, that can do its job better. But unless you have a VK7201, you can't ask for a better german heavy tank crew trainer.

I get plenty of hugs (facehugs, specifically) from heavy tanks on the battlefield :(

I have a Lowe-hate (get it, because it's pronounced Lur-vuh? :trollface: ;) relationship with this tank, much like the T34. It's definitely quite strong for frontlines, as it will make short work of the Obj 252U's upper plate. 

I agree with with you on all your points. It's a support vehicle, through-and-through. The Tier VIII of the week bundle offers a lot of extra goodies for a nominal difference in price.
