Hey, everyone! 

 

Some music artists call it quits for touring, and have a special "farewell" trek...only to hit the road afterward for another go...it seems the same is true for the FCM 50 t and T-34-3. They said "good-bye," but they're back!

 

The French heavy and Chinese medium tanks were honorably discharged in February and March, respectively, with "last chance" sales, and removed from their nations' Tech Trees. Both are available throughout September, however, with a new bundle for each vehicle added every Thursday until the end of the month.

 

The T-34-3 medium packs a 122 mm cannon, has good camouflage, while the FCM 50 t heavy has a 90 mm gun, handles like a medium vehicle, and can go toe-to-toe with any fellow Tier VIII heavy tank!

Tier 10's must be running out of tier 8's to farm, so they had to bring some back.

FCM stand toe to toe with any tier 8 heavy?  Like say Defender?, every time defender shoots it WILL pen, everytime FCM shoots it MIGHT pen.

Oh Gnomon.  Who makes you write this stuff? :)

 

First of all, can we stop saying "last chance sale" if it's not really the last chance? :)

 

The FCM 50 t is certainly not "deadly" unless you simply mean that it is sometimes capable of killing another tank.  It's super under powered at the moment, and is surely one of the worst Tier VIII Premiums, which probably makes it the least deadly.

 

It's also not capable of going "toe-to-toe with any fellow Tier VIII heavy tank".  It has no armor to do so.  At best, it needs to try to play link a flanking medium, but with it's size and lack of armor, even that's not exactly a path to success.

They are both Turds.. I kept mine in the event that they will get some love.. 50T has no armor but MM still matches you with true heavies.. T34-3 had a pretty bad gun last time i played it.. That gun did not belong a med Tank.. Slow aim..slow reload..not accurate which goes against what a gun on a med should be..

Surely you recognize how ridiculous this sounds.

The downfall of the T-34-3 is it’s gun, very poor penetration, accuracy, and slow reload. Not a good tank to play against only Tier VIII and  IX tanks.

Its crazy that WG's MM matches FCMs against something like Defenders...

This is another place where MM needs additional work...matching super heavies against super heavies, not matching super heavies against paper heavies.

Same goes for super TDs versus super TDs, paper TDs versus paper TDs, NOT super TDs versus paper TDs...

Same goes for mediums...don't pit 430U against Leopards, etc., etc.

 

WG...MM really needs some work

1) Get rid of 3/5/7 or add in the code you left out when templates came into game, which was the code that prevents spending 80% of your games in bottom tier of 3/5/7's

2) Give all tanks an "effectiveness" rating. An effectiveness rating would be a number value representing the most critical aspects of that tanks type. For example, heavies effectiveness numbers would compare armor, DPM, speed (perhaps), and some other values. Then set MM to match effectiveness ratings tier by tier for teams. So Maus fight Maus or Super Conq, etc., and not Maus fighting AMX50b.

3) Limit arty to two per team

 

Viola...MM fixed...many many of your customers would be happier if you made changes to MM like those listed above...

I'll put it diplomatically,   "Bless their hearts".        

 

Someone at WG fell and bumped their head.  Repeatedly it appears.

Maybe if you didn't add the tanks to bundles that cost around $100 or higher you might get better sales. Yea idk who your marketing team is but lemme tell ya, higher a new marketing team.

WG 6ish months ago: "Buy these tanks because they're going away and never* coming back!"

 

 

WG now: They're back, but not without a bundle!

 

 

 

Lame. I could probably be persuaded to pick up the T-34-3 for gold if it was on sale, but not in a bundle and not for real money in the shop. I've already spent my money on gold, so why isn't that good enough?

hey if possible I would gladly sell my T-34-3 to you for gold. I've had my fun with it and with the powercreep on the whole Chinese med line I no longer need it.

I just wanted the T-34-3 by itself.  Oh well. :(

You sure? 6.5 degrees of depression might make that tank actually playable again!

But both of these are pref MM and do not see 10s. The tanks do come in overpriced bundles though which is always nice.
