The surfboard is a bit much for me, personally. And the giant plow things on the TVP.

"Added Battle Pass Season 2. Once Season 2 starts, all progress for Battle Pass Season 1 will be reset, including the Point Limits for all vehicles."

 

So essentially use it or lose it.  Will we be able to make selections up until the day Season 2 starts?

 

Thanks.

Agreed.  Who fires the forward Ma Deuce?  Some dude riding the mantlet like a bull rider?

Yeah, they suffer a bit from "moar stuff!" syndrome. Lose the board, half of machineguns, a beach towel(?), blades, and whatever the hell is that pipe thingy, and it would be mostly perfect.

But as Creame said:

And it will even push purchase of TVP higher on my TODO list.

Maybe the surfboard is for the crew members after the tank has drowned? ;-p

Surfboard on M48 is a strait up copy of surfboards strapped to Col. Kilgore's chopper in "Apocalypse Now"

You spend money and get one commander and both styles

I asked the same thing on one of the russian medium skins that features the same thing.  apparently it's a ranging gun, and real world examples were given and showed in that other thread.

 

seems strange to me as well, but apparently it was done on a variety of tanks

 

re: common test, my main question is does the berlin map ever show up?  In previous iterations I had close to 100 battles on common test and saw the map 3 times...

If memory serves, (which it does more and more rarely, so take this with a grain of salt), this is the third or fourth custom "skin" I have seen that includes something(s) that look an awful lot like land mine plows. 

 

Does this mean that minefields are in the offing?!?!?!?!?!?  

 

:amazed: 

 

Say it ain't so, Joe! Say it ain't so!!!

There was talk of a 20mm also being mounted. Also used for mounting the gun simulator for MILES gear.

This guy has my vote.  Although somebody needs to check his headspace and timing.

Why would a nation that a has a single tank line be featured in the battle pass? Judging by battle pass 1, you would get fragments for the nation that the tanks are in for the rewords. But if you already have the tier 10 or will get it from this event, what would you do with the remainder?

 

I would recommend changing it to M48 vs UDES 15/16 or, M48 vs Centurion AX (less the AX because there was already a British tank featured)  

 

This would of course work, unless they plan on adding another czeck czech line soon

Good point.

 

I will certainly complete the rewards stages and have maxed out every tree of every nation. All these fragments (and the first lot) are as useful as tits on a bull.

The idea that they will care that they're giving you a bunch of useless fragments, or read any of these posts, is hilarious. Maybe I'm wrong, and they will be releasing more Czech vehicles halfway through the battle pass, but I doubt it.
