Tankers!

 

Together with our great friends from Sabaton—the Swedish masters of heavy metal—we proudly present "Steel Commanders," a brand-new video and song dedicated to those who took armor to battle throughout the history of humankind. The video also marks the beginning of our new special collaboration with Sabaton that includes an event with a one-of-a-kind prize for you to seize. Look and listen!

 

Wait, what is that tank in the video?

 

If you weren't so carried away by the song that you closed your eyes, you must've seen the Spirit of War empowering an imposing tank. And you’re probably asking, "Is it coming to the game? Should I want it?"

Yes.That Sabaton-crewed steed, the Strv K, is METAL in every sense. And while it was forged in the tank spirit realm, it will come back down to World of Tanks to materialize as the one-of-a-kind Tier IX Premium, bearing the "Spirit of War 3D" style.

So, you absolutely want it! And you will have a chance to prove you deserve it by taking on the Spirit of War challenge, following the way of either virtue of metal: mastery or commitment.

 

Get the complete details here!

So you broke the 'no prems above tier 9' rule and did it with a worse Cent 7/1? Your recent tier 8 prems are better at being tier 9s than this thing is.

 

I guess you have to release something pretty mundane at first to soften the blow when you release new prems to make the Concept 1B blush

Kind of makes all the tier 8 prems irrelevant, no? Assuming the credit earning is even better to more than cover the increased repair costs and not needing gold as much as tier 8s. 

 

Cant wait till the tier 9 Borat / Defender / Progetto comes out and cant get nerfed.

 

 

Kind of saw this coming when they said frontlines was gonna be tier 9 as well now...

I am shocked that they waited this long since WoWs did this a long time ago.

I’m glad to hear it doesn’t look OP at least. I haven’t really taken much of a look. I bet this winds up in the loot boxes too.

The video reminds me more of Warthunder than WOT.

Tier 9 Premium tank, that is bad news, and tier 8 tanks can not penetrate it well even with gold round. So that means our Tier 8 Premium tank is going to the garage forever.

If you're gonna screw us with Tier 9 premiums at least give me a T95 with the 155mm M2 "Long Tom" which, considering there have been documents found suggesting mounting it, is more historically accurate than the T30's 155mm strapped to it. It never left the idea phase but thats never stopped WG.

Hmm, it earns bonds, are they limited to something restrictive like 100/week in tier X or could we farm more since it's a 'prem' tank?

That thing looks like a hunk of Russian trash...big cupolas, soft lower plate and a typical inaccurate Russian gun.

Yea, why discuss anything if WG makes what WG wants? 
Overpowered tier 10 premium next?

Lol, hope your joking. That armor profile is insane from all directions, 907 on steroids. Along with 8 gun depress, a autoloader, high pen apcr...

I really love how they announce stuff 2 days prior to it so you cant plan to take part in events. wg: So you bought the tier8 prem tanks so you can be competitive when you play against the 9's and 10's making the tech tree 8's more or less useless. Time to go up a tier to get you to pay to play more at higher tiers while making the ones you have bought seem irrelevant. Getting closer to time to bow out of the ole WOT

Well either way we can't really stop them from adding tier 9 prems, if we did we should've stopped them when they introduced the AE Phase 1 during the first season of Frontline a while ago. When that got introduced into the game, many people I knew wanted it and basically grinded Frontline hard for it. Now they've started to add more tier 9 prems and most likely in a couple of years, they'll add so many that it'll eventually become like tier 8 where you'll barely be able to see 1 or 2 tech tree tanks at all in a game.

Took bond away from everything but X's and now a non X premium that makes bond.  Sounds honest to me.
