I wasn't going to buy anymore premium time as I have plenty of resources and don't play as often.

 

However WarGaming had good timing. So I gave in and bought the Pz. II J.

 

Here's my first game replay for anyone on the fence.

 

Nothing special.

 

The WN8 should be easier to obtain over time as more people buy and drive them.

Damage expectations come down from the historic highs.

 

But I think it's a good example of a common kind of game for this tank.

It must be so hard to kick puppies. Shame on you for supporting their blatant cash grab!

Save your opt in moral outrage for someone who cares.

 

Though I imagine you're being sarcastic. +1

I refuse to buy the thing simply because it has been so badly power-crept over the years. It makes a nice addition to any collection, but it shouldn't be expected to carry a 1v15 game as it used to. 

 

You're basically paying for the premium and getting the tank as a toss-in, but I would rather wait and buy my premium 50% off. 

 

Besides, I paid $100 for the Mutant when they first brought it back and I didn't get any goodies with it. The more recent sales of it included the sales price in gold, sadly I jumped the gun a little too soon. 

 

Correction; The sale from 2017 and 2018 were basically the same, 2018 being a bit cheaper. It was the EU sale that included 20k gold for the same price.

Who in the hell is gonna pay $100 bucks for a level 3 premium tank, are WG insane? out of mind?, who do this horrible, terrible special?

I spend $$$ in the game, but this is ridiculous...... level 3 OMFG!!!! better give me a tier 10 premium tank, that'd be awesome....

Had they offered a bunch of gold, I'm not so sure I would have bought it.

actually if you look at the price you are pretty much paying for the 360 days of premium and getting the tank as a bonus

Technically, you’re not paying $100 for the tank. If you’re in the market for a year premium time you’d spend $100 for 360 days anyway. Unfortunately, I am not since I have nearly 2 years of prem time.

Anytime a Russian can soak an American for $100 bucks, they will.

This. I can't justify buying a year of premium when I still have nearly a year let after buying the half off package around Christmas. Pz II J or not, just doesn't make sense.

it should have been in a package with a few thousand premium rounds to shoot. Once they are all used up the buyer's remorse will likely set in for most.

I've actually had good fun in that tank.  Also did the math, it was way cheaper to buy that 360 days of premium than me dumping 2500 gold a month to keep premium account.

Guys like you and I zap, with years of proceeds, are not as affected by the economics.

 

But anyone who buys this tank for any other reason that to have it, is gonna be bummed.

 

As far a "Premium" tanks go, it's not.. lel.

 

But like I've said before; my grind is over.

I'm sitting on millions and no real place to put it.

 

So I'll just melt down the silver into rounds, and go spray werewolves!!!

There are ways to deal with this thing one can track it, force it to stay at their base if they rush off attacking cap the base before they can cap yours its slow, load HE ammo and if your team a assets to hurt it protect them I met one in my Matilda British Tier 4 and went on the warpath my armor could laugh at its puny girly gun and packs a nice rapid fire punchy gun and loaded with premium ammunition hammered these to dust and I as faster tank for once.

 

:popcorn:


 

Seriously this is not invincible but not all tanks can handle this and some can, but well one needs to know what it can do and can't and you need to play to your strengths.


 

But frankly if they sell these for around $30 I might get one its still good at what it does in the right matches its good.

Cruiser IV with gold ammo is also very devastating to the PzIIj, and like you said the derp howitzers with HE whittle them down pretty effectively.  I have avoided matildas like the plague when playing mine lol.
