The funny thing is that so far, even though all CCs now have them to test and there's no publication embargo, WG hasn't been able to confirm how users will actually be able to acquire this vehicle.  Some new reward or event?  Twitch care packages?  Bonds?  Speculate away...

So Wargaming released an unfiltered tank to you to produce and release content, but we have no idea WHEN, HOW or HOW MUCH this tank will be available.  Nice.

 

Thanks for the review +1

The T54E1 is an autoloader, currently unable to watch the video, does the E2 variant follow in the autoloader steps?  It looks like a traditional turret so I'm not thinking it is.  Tier 8 or 9?

 

 

Shame that so many American mediums are premiums or potential premiums, would love more tech tree tanks.

Yup!  

 

Actually one thing I can say, every NA CC is getting one T54E2 (and one TL-1 LPC) to give away on their channel however they see fit, so stay tuned to your favorite CC (or all of them).

Not sure what I'm going to do yet, *might* actually have a chance to stream some in a couple weeks so may be then...

Short review is that it's a T54E1 hull with a significantly stronger turret and no auto-loader, Tier 8 HT.

WG must need the money. Serb needs to keep that moon base stocked with premium Vodka.

Shamefully, the E2 will not be an auto-loader but will be blessed with low DPM.  We wouldn't want to spoil the players with an OP tank, now would we?  The armor, mobility, and everything else about this one screams out for a purchase.  I just wonder how, when, and all the rest of the details.

In your second match, what type of ammo was the Defender penning your cupola with?  Nice review.  Looks like an enjoyable tank. 

 

Did you have a chance to try the Phase 1 reward tank from FL?

This tank is named the M54 Renegade on the 1.6.1 test server, so I almost wouldnt expect it to arrive until after 1.6.1. I would also expect a 3D style to accompany it.

 

EDIT: Also the stats on tanks.gg are out of date. From the 1.6.1 test server (and these stats are identical to the 1.6 Live server as far as I know):

 

 

EDIT2: With regard to your video... the Strv S1 has 30mm of armor pretty much everywhere, so the 105mm gun of the T54E2 can over match it. Its the 103-0 Series and the 103B that it cant over match.

Of the two new USA vehicles, this is the one I want, not the springy thingy they are pushing like mad.  Some type of mad scientist event to earn it most likely.

You can see it in the replay, readout is in the top-left'ish of the screen.  Gold APCR of course :playing:

 

Haven't had time to try the TL-1 yet...

I see they call it a "Medium tank" in their description, but still decided to go full steam ahead and turn it into a half-assed heavy tank.

Good addendum. And yea, this is the tank Im waiting for now... the TL-1 looks fine, but I like the looks of this one more.

Another tank that will be better than the tech tree tank, poor T-32.

Yeah but I don't see it as better than the Patriot. In tanks GG the patriot looks to have better armor, especially hull down or from a hill. I just got done with the T54E1 grind and i can tell you right now that the hull is trash. Maybe in tier 8 it will be better but I doubt it's better than the patriot hull. I don't know. The patriot is a consistent good performing tank. This thing is going to have to be pretty darn good for a lot of people to consider it. So far, I don't see it being any better. What am I missing? Everyone is goo goo over the turret. But have you looked at the armor in tanks GG? The entire turret ring is a weak spot, a glaring one from every single direction. I am afraid that this tank is only going to be decent at long range and against newbs.
