1.  Liked the rewards.  I have enough bonds to go a little silly when spending them.
2.  Now know what tank line I am doing next.   I enjoyed the rental Chinese tank.  I couldn't add it to the comparison tool(WEIRD!), but I will risk that the regular tech tree version is the same.  

3.  Some might disagree, but I think I am ready to play a heavy at tier 10.   I ran a 50% WR in the Chinese tank, and brought my E100 up from 42% to 45%.  Now I sucked in the OBJ 140, and I didn't even bother using the Progetto because I sucked in the Pantera 44.  Only played one game in the Swedish BB, but it was enough for me.  Didn't like it.  Hence the emphasis on "heavy".

4.  Now that I have them and can see them on my tanks...the graphic rewards are kinda m'eh.  Probably only using the decals.

5. One thing.  The time frame requirements of the missions.  could've done w/o those.

 

Overall this was a nice event.  I would support another like it.

I ran the German rental heavy to a 60% WR across 115 games. Marked it too. First experience as a Tier 10 heavy. The other rentals were OK, but this one resonated with me.

I loved the chinese heavy too, my only tier 10 is the E-100 and I alway hated tier 10 battles, Im too slow to take many good positions, cant take enough time to aim or my turret will get pen by every single tank in front of me, etc.

But the WZ is so much fun: fast and as long as you dont play like an idiot it will bounce much more shots that the E-100 just by hiding your hull and wiggling a little. Oh and the gun is so much more reliable than the one on the E-100.

It was the one rental that I played the most and I think I ended with a WR in the high 60%s

I really like its speed.  getting through some maps w/o getting sniped before one gets to position is nice.

I actually really like the german panzer kampfwagen 7, reviews for it are pretty bad but its kind of a boss if you play it right.

The rentals are completely identical statistics wise to their tech tree counterparts.

I enjoyed Dynasty as well.

 

Already had the Super Conqueror and the IS7  … had an Obj 277, but sold it for credits for the Black Market 

 

Enjoyed messing with the tier X rentals  … probably did best in the Udes

 

Picked up the Deathstar in the BM and it has been my best tier X so far … 63% win rate in a couple of dozen games .. a good start at least

 

21 more points tomorrow night and I'll be at level X for Dynasty thing … woot

Let me give you the bad news OP.    Your experience is completely invalid, and you're going to get your turret bashed in.   I wish I could see your face when you grind down the line, get your t10 wz5a and discover that your experience in the rental was a lie.  That a thousand other fools in rentals completely warped your perspective on what its actually like.   Of course if you had bothered to read at all about the complaints that rentals had turned t10 into a zoo, you'd know that.   Have fun see you at t10.

I do find that the tier X matches during this event had many more easy kills than (mostly tomatoes in BB tanks) than usual.

Yes, but I have enjoyed it because its also the first time in a long time I have been able to play tier 10 without being prem spammed. I mostly played my Maus and yes, the players in the BB tanks were far less likely to fire prem shells which meant that my armor actually held quite well. It was sort of like playing tier 8-9

Fell in love with the OBJ 140 and the rewards were very nice!

 

.. that being said...

 

Tier X turned into a complete and utter crapshow as of Tuesday night. I’ve never ever seen it so bad. I’d get in 3 clips of damage in the BatChat early in the game and by the 3rd one I knew I’d be lucky to get in one last reload before going out with a bang. Same in the Leopard 1, flexing all over the map and getting a few k of early damage, closing off some corridors all for naught. You’d take your eyes off of the map for 10 seconds and suddenly realize your team was down 5 tanks and totally out of position. 

I know this happens in randoms enough, but at least the game usually lasts longer than 5 minutes. So while the event paid well, it’s ruined tier X until Saturday. /rant concluded/

 

Enjoy the Chinese heavy!

i don't enjoy tier 10 regular meta or rental madness, I only played my 10's to get the rewards...

Just think: a brand new player to WoT, and I'm talking someone who started yesterday, could have jumped into a Tier X rental tank and just ran around like a madman.

No experience, no knowledge of the mechanics. Nothing. He just showed up.

FAIL

Hopefully now people will see how truly great the Chinese heavies are.
