Howdy Tankers,


I was very excited to see the Tier VIII British Premium Heavy Tank on the NA Server today.  First in a game with a guy I've never heard of and then MeatheadMilitia was taking her for a spin (sorry for my yolo into you Meat, I wanted to get a selfie with your corpse :-)

 

Can't wait for the grind to start.  Looking forward to getting this tank!

Did it have a 230 alpha gun, or 320? How did the tank seem to perform? I'm chomping at the bit for a  british heavy trainer that isn't low tier or tragically underpowered.

The 230.  Here is the in-game stat sheet I pulled off of the Meathead game:

When it's got equipment and a good crew you can get the 230 damage reload down to 4.87 seconds.

Looks like it could be quite the monster.

Well they announced the Caernarvon AX Marathon at Gamescom (2 other reputable sites have also confirmed this), so I assume that the marathon will be here soon:

 

 

"Players have been asking for a Tier VIII Premium British heavy tank for a long time and we are now going to get one! Wargaming has confirmed at Gamescom they will bring the tank as a marathon soon!  In September, players will be able to either buy the tank or get it for free in a marathon similar to the Italian Progetto 46.

Haha I was like, "Why is this guy rushing my position?" then after you blew up, I looked down and saw the name and was like, *Hands on hip* "Oh Warchild" :D 

Here was my best performance so far. 
Top Tier in this game, but I did what Top Tiers are supposed to do, carry. :B

21 shots and 17k ammo cost = 809 silver per shell for 230 alpha.... Seems kinda on the high side, no?

Yes, but I only thought it was you and 1 other tank there.  I did not see the 2 behind you until I crested the hill and by that time it was too late.  Charge!! :izmena:

 

 

Thanks for posting your in-game results.  That's very helpful to see.  I love the reload on that tank and the pen seems decent.  Looking forward to getting one for my Super Conq crew.

 

 

FELLAS - He's not going to tell you when the Marathon is because he can't.  However, I can GUARANTEE it is coming before the end of the month - because WG said so...

Imagine if i didn't use premium consumables, that would have been a 94,000 Credit earning battle...not too shabby if you ask me. 

 

Also, i can't remember, but I may have fired a few premium rounds on some targets when things were getting a little squirrely

3700 damage only making 100k credits is pretty bad, IMO.

It has the same ammo cost as every other british tank with the 20 pdr gun. 680 for regular ammo, 4400 for premium ammo.

Agreed.  He had a monster game, had to dip into all his resources, and still made a net $55K for his efforts.  Same win in my Super Conqueror would set me back around $50-70K.  My vote goes to the Caernarvon AX!

 

PS - Great game Meathead if I didn't tell you already.
