Content portal guys asked for a forum plug, so a forum plug I provided :)

That first thread you're referencing is Intern Stabby's post from the last time it was on sale, back in April. New sale, new forum post!

As for BrianTheBomber's thread, spreading awareness is certainly appreciated but having a thread show up in "staff posts" is always nice for visibility. Hence the official post.

Oh yeah, I wasn't chastising or anything but just spreading the conversation on this tank since it's back in the Premium Shop!
I definitely could have worded my post a lot better to just indicate it's intended to be an assist.

Thanks for putting out the word Domo and Happy Friday!

It's like an MA 17 show being promoted in a game for 12 year olds. I don't think i can find a clip to post that wouldn't get me banned for a week.

Money is money I guess.

Just talking about the tank I made the mistake last time and bought this.  If you're thinking about it I REALLY advise that you stay way.  It's a worse Pershing, and that says a lot.

Y'know, I'm not really well versed enough in the legal side of things to comment on this one way or another but for what it's worth all of the imagery in-game that's related to "The Boys" is generally quite tame. I'm personally a HUGE fan of the show and I was super-excited to see that we were doing a crossover but it is indeed a show that is very much aimed at an adult audience. 

Common sense and good parenting/good role modeling is definitely the key here. Use your best judgment.

You're really, really wrong about who plays this game.

if you want a decent tier 8 american premium med, the The TL1 LPC instead. this thing is slow, unwieldy, and frankly, F tier. 

 

https://tanks.gg/com.../t42?t=tl-1-lpc

 

Like you can't seriously call the T42 a tier 8. If it didn't have 280 alpha on its 90, it would be tier 7.

Do the tank commanders in this bundle have unique voices, or just the generic nations'? Thanks for any info on this.

The fact that voices are generic, and not unique voice is probably the reason I may stay away from this.   The tank (according to multiple reviews...) is just "blah".  Thus I can not see myself playing it too much.  Stats on tomato.g seem to confirm this unfortunately.   But the crews are cool.  The zero skill BIA x2 is even cooler.  So my thought were to grab it for the 2x crews alone.   But one of the main fun points of playing with unique crews is the unique voices.  And without that, this is basically a fancy crew skin.  And there is also a cool 3D skin - for a tank you probably won't ever use.  And 2x cool 2D skins

 

So is $$$ worth 2x BIA crews with fancy crew skins + 2x 2D tank skins.   hmm....  The TL-1 LPC was a better deal for a similar price.  An effective med tank.  A cool crew.  Unique 3D skin.   Unique voiceovers (& music!).

Perhaps I would consider if the tank came without the logo, I prefer a plain tank without all the crap...just saying.

It’s a 3D style. You can remove it.
