Good morning, everyone! 

 

Hope that you're having a great week so far! 

 

It's time for Gnomon's Tank Sales of Something or Something...or yeah. Use your imagination to come up with a name for it, that's half the fun. 

 

I wanted to let you know about our 96-hour offer for the Object 252U. This is a Soviet Tier VIII heavy tank that can take huge chunks out of the enemy's health. However, it does a low rate of fire and not the best accuracy, which means you've got to get up close and personal with this titan. This Object 252 U is the non-Defender version (meaning you can customize the look of the tank how you like. 

 

Check out our article or open the spoiler below for bundle information: 96-Hour Offer: Object 252U

 

Object 252U Bundles

 

Thanks, everyone!

I get the image of some dude in an ill fitting business suit running down the center aisle of a jet, stuffing hands full of cash into a sack...oh, and he’s wearing a parachute...

Can we change Defender for that noncustomized version as it was posible for some other tanks?

I think there's a non bundle for $60.

But it's SIXTY dollars for a pixel tank.  So yeah...I'll never buy that.

I have one on EU. I *might* be tempted to buy another on NA, *might* but not at that price. How about 50% off if you already own it?

So don't delay, act now, supplies are running out
Allow if you're still alive, six to eight years to arrive
And if you follow, there may be a tomorrow
But if the offer is shun, you might as well be walkin' on the sun

Why does the "base" still need 3k Gold and 100% crew? Why can't we get just the tank itself. After the community fought for the option to buy premium vehicles without any other stuff, you guys go and forget about it and include more unnecessary items.

I have one .. but maybe your experience will be better..i haven't played mine to much because it kept putting me in t10 matches and I would aim at the week points and with the bad aiming it has.. I usually hit NON week spots or missed and hit the ground or shot the moon. plus they more then likely are going to go through you like butter ...but that's my experience I even had my 9 skill crew in it.

 so hopefully good luck to you .. me.. it has cobwebs on its tracks

Not interested in 252, prefer looks of defender.  Why not sell them together like usual?  Missed opportunity...holding onto my change.

WoT is starting to stink more and more of desperation... not a good look, it's going to make more people abandon ship. The number of accounts being sold on ebay is getting bigger and bigger, for pennies to the dollar as far as premiums in them go. :-( I wish I started to play this game in its heyday; the management doesn't seem to have any plans to reverse the rot - just squeeze more money out of the captives, err.. customers. 

 

WoT has turned into Scientology of computer games.

Please WG. Stop selling the Defender and the Skorp G. You're breaking this game and it already has so many problems...

The defender is not a big deal any more and never lived up to all the hype.  Facing tier 6 and 7 it is a monster but with MM that is rare.  It's a good tank but the skorp G is a much bigger threat.  Playing a heavy takes a little bit of skill playing a TD takes none.  You just find your favorite bush and sit there taking pot shots all game at 500dmg per shot.  Put your average potato in each one and the skorpG will deal out more damage.

You can't do that in a ScorpG - it has crap cammo, especially once you fire. Arty will tear you to bits, plus every light tank in the vicinity. The problem with scorp is that it's basically a Leopard 1 (a tier X tank) with even better gun and mobility. You can grind to the leopard, or just pay and get a better tank with the same role at t VIII...Plus, because you are a TD, matchmaking doesn't count you as a medium; so you can game the system. Same with Defender/252u, it's a tier IX tank that you can have at tier VIII. So, if you are a new player in a tier 6 tank, mm already makes your life hell putting you up against tier VIII, now you have to play against tier XI/X equivalents as well. You are going to play the game a few times, decide it's crap, and find somewhere else to invest your time and money. So, you get a shrinking pool of players and a dying game; WG tries to keep the money coming, offering even more OP tanks for people who sank too much time and money to want to leave, and.... the game enters a death spiral.

 

This game has to be made a lot more fun for people coming in, or there will be nobody left to play. That means nerfing the damage and top tiers severely, that includes all the premiums in the game; no more buffs to keep tanks viable; make the other tanks weaker. Also, you will probably want to limit the amount of gold ammo to some percentage ~ 5 of the ammo carried, cap the maximum number of skills that a crew can have active at lower tiers (and allow multi tank crews) etc etc. All things that a) will reduce income in the short terms b) cause grumbling from the veteran players who take seal clubbing as right c) have been used successfully in other mp games - it's not rocket science. Finally, invest in the core engine of the game, weather, new tank systems (eg smoke, multi turrets), have a plan to switch to a new graphics engine every three years etc etc... Finally, offer some end game content for tier Xs to keep old players engaged, randomised maps? a permanent ladder system that offers meaningful rewards / access to tanks that are kept out of the main game, anything new really.

 

I'm not saying these are a recipe for success / saving our game, but those kind of changes are the TYPE of changes that need to be coming into the game; not selling more and more OP fantasy tanks for higher and higher prices, because there is fewer and fewer players to buy them and the investors want to extract maximum cash out of the game.

 

Just my 2c as someone who came in recently, enjoys the basic concept, and spent a decent amount of money; because why not... But, for every player that will throw money into the hat, you need a dozen free to play customers that are having FUN and want to keep playing.  You wouldn't be having to fix the MM if you had enough players in each tier, so that they can just play their tier.

 

PS. For the love of tank, allow server roaming - why do I have to play on NA with 200 ping and have a separate account on SEA, so I can play AUS with decent ping but games only in the weekends (unless you want to wait 10 minutes)?  SET OUR PEOPLE FREE WG!!!

Dont buy anything from wargaming.
You never know when the next overpowered tank might come and yours become irrelevant.
