Hey...Hey, War Gaming, did you know there are different groups of people in the world called "Nations" and they have their own tanks too? Crazy, I know, right!? :ohmy:

 

So how about we start seeing OTHER Nations get Premium Tanks, instead of a new Soviet one every month? Crazy concept, I know, but if you really put your mind to it, I bet you could do it.

 

But, seriously, though, can we see something new for once, instead of the same old Copy Pasta Soviet Premiums? It's becoming bland at this point, now, pardon if this is incorrect, as I haven't been active in this game for a while now, but within the span of what...3 months? We've gotten 3 brand new Soviet Premiums, The KV-2R, The LT-432, and the Obj. 244.

 

Chances are this post is going to go absolutely nowhere, but the usual - WG Apologists, Soviet Fanboys, and the like.

Reviews for the Brit Light premium are out today, should be in our store soon.  

 

The KV-2R and 432 are not new.

I watched QB's review on it, and...Honestly? It's lack luster, but, I mean, look what WG did to the entire line, hell, even QB raged at WG for the Ammunition Count for them.

You're conflating the tech tree lights with the premium.  He was quite complementary to the prem.

The KV-2R and LT-432 have been out for quite a while now, but don't let that get in the way of your story.

Was he? Well, that's good, at least, I hope it is good, god knows the British LT Commanders deserve it.

Well, as I've said, I haven't been back around too long, I just know WG loves pushing Copy Pasta Soviet Premiums.

They do. The KV-2R was released in May or June of 2018 and the 432 in November 2018.

Yes, when you add this gibberish to the end of your post you have no reason to expect it to go anywhere. If you have some inability to handle people who have different opinions you can always just avoid internet forums altogether. Then you won't have to worry about getting bent out of shape by "WG Apologists, Soviet Fanboys, and the like"...

Here is a little story for you OP. 

WG is based in Minsk, Belarus. Former part of the USSR. 

Biggest playerbase is in Russia. So what if you use your business mindset would you cater to? 

WG is not a charity, it is a for profit company.

 Its just the very simple fact the Soviet Union had a massive tank development system post WW2. They captured a lot of German tank designers and put them to work as well as there own men. They also made a staggering number of full scale test tanks. Most counties rarely would rarely go to a full scale design planning.

If I remember correctly, we have had the EBR 75FL 10 (french tier 8 wheelie boi), Skoda T27 (czech med), VK some # (german heavy, rear turreted) between the latest and greatest of the soviet tanks. So it isnt like they forgot about other nations, just that ya dont remember them.

My short take on Guido's much longer take is, "It's okay. Ish.  As a light tank.  Doesn't live up to the British Light Tank spot in the food chain, though."

 

May or may not grab one, depending on pricing.

Considering that Russia is by far their biggest market, then it is not surprising.

 

Not saying I agree with it, but most financially successful companies tend to cater to their biggest market demands.

What is the story on the Object 244? Good? Bad? Average? Oh and I heard WG had moved their main headquarter office to Cyprus. Something about avoiding taxes or some such. Not sure if its true or not.

It's running at ~ $28 on the EU server for just the tank
