Hey guys,


I see this thing is on sale for 50% off.  I probably have too many prem tanks already...lol.  Is this tank worth it at this price?


Fun to play? Unique in some way that would make it interesting? 

 

Pretty sure I do not have a Russian Prem Medium at Tier 8 so there's that.

It's a "Battlecruiser"- battleship gun but inadequate cruiser armor.

It's a shoot-and-scoot, ambush medium. 

 

You sit behind a building, waiting for any enemy mediums to make themselves known. Once they're busy with your friends, side-scrap out, BOOM, and then run like hell.

Its a 416 with "more" turret armor and a 122mm that has decent pen. 

 

Itll be fun to play on certain maps, terrible on any with many hills.

 

Its not bad for FL defense because heavy alpha and medium speed

It's a classic TeDium. I usually snipe the first half of the match and get aggro once the herd thins out. Also can play rear turret games due to fully rotating rear turret. I like mine.

It can also spot once fully upgraded and has the right crew skills, something that most Russian tanks incredibly lack.

I don't play mine much because of the long reload of the gun, for a medium tank, its just too much since you can't really brawl with it. And you think that it would be harder to target since the tank is so small, but I get hit quite easily while driving it and when I am against one, never have much trouble hitting it.

I'd probably get it for 50% off, but mine only says 10%...so I'll pass.

I see it for 50% off but it is NOT the Guard, just the plain skinned STG, which I did buy not too long ago.

Ah I am using the wrong name.  Thanks for that.  Sorry yes the tank without the skin.  I see its just called STG.

Unless you can burn money? Can't think it's fun to play or worth it in any way or form. Sorry.

 If i could swap my guard for a standard i would. I think its unreasonable that they make you pay to take it off and put camo on that conveniently also costs gold

If I didn't have both, I would get one it at 50% off.  50% off a tier 8 premium that I don't have?  Heck yeah!

 

However, you already have one version and the tank itself isn't that great.  I wouldn't buy the second if I were you.

 

If it was a second Defender or something at 50% off?  Yes please!

That's really annoying as I have been running a premium account constantly for nearly a year. I only see it at 10% off, and can't use a coupon for it because it's already discounted. 

 

I do see other tanks at 40% (AMX 13-57, KV-122, STRV  M42-57 alt 42), and can use a coupon on those (even though the coupon states that it can't be used on already discounted items) to get an additional discount. Unfortunately they are mostly tanks that I already have. 

 

It's one thing to charge different prices for the same product to players in different nations, but to do that on an individual player basis is dishonest (and in the U.S illegal under most curcumstances).
