They already did that once and likely won't do it again for a long time.

Think you are the best at WOT this link might explain why you are so good at this game.

Wish I could, but I'm saving my money for the KV-5, Kaiju, and comic Firefly. The Loaded bundle is a pretty good deal, though.

I'm not sure about the t28 concept.....it looks decent but I'm really on the fence with thus one..

Can anyone give some pros/cons of the t28 proto?

Beware the Banshee Comet! According to Irish folklore, a Banshee is a ghost-like creature that wails (keens) to warn you of your impending death. However on the battlefield, the last screams you hear will be your own!   

 

NOTE - I am taking a temporary leave from playing World of Tanks due to certain family obligations. I hope to see many of you back out in battle soon!

it's a great premium TD. Gun traverse is MASSIVE and she hits pretty hard. It also has PMM so there's that. I have no regrets buying this tank the first time around.

WG Balance 101, If a tank has a high survival rate, nerf its gun.

Im interested, but it's lousy timing. My money has been earmarked for the Revenant Kraft's Panther (spelling, meh) as I already have the Snakebite.

I heard that these tanks were tied to the comics, and that there are 3 issues being printed. That means 3 unique tanks with 3 special skills. That's where my money is going for now (except for Premium time of course).

Maybe next time it comes around.

I thought there were 4 tanks with skills in the pipeline, but I could be wrong? i'm sure I read that at the start somewhere before I bought the Snakebite, but can't remember now what it was. 

I really like the T28HTC - not necessarily for any performance reason but just because it looks really unusual and cool. The Scorpion is fun and getting the 2 together in a bundle would definitely be a better deal. I'm sure it will come around again as they've already said that some of the bundles will be repeated.

I thought the HTC would have massive gun traverse but if you look at the tankopedia pic the area in the middle of the traverse where it's worn out is all you get. So maybe 45-60 degrees - certainly not the 180 or so it looks like. Kind of like the Scorpion gun traverse, but it seems like a bit less (maybe because hull traverse is so slow on the HTC). It is good though and I think it looks really funky!

 

I'm also waiting for the Revenant and isn't Black Friday soon too.  WG said they had 'big plans' for Black Friday...  :)

It's the Friday after Thanksgiving, so November 25th this year. I'm holding off on buying any tech tree premiums until then. :)

As a high tier, in a no arty match, the T28 HTC is unstoppable (especially on the right map).  BUT, at tier 8 it is merely a doorstop since most everything can pen it with a bit of gold ammo.

 

It does earn silver pretty well.

Doubt they will do that bundle again....... Scorpion sold separately earlier in the year ( yup..... Got one )

Very capable tank the T28 Concept...... Two big weak spots which are obvious even from a distance, get behind one ( if you can! )

and it's all over for them!!

Good luck...... Follow one on battlefield ( might be new tanker ) but you might get a "feel" of what it can do.

Not for me already have about 9-10 Yank premiums plus not much of a TD player as of late.

I don't play anymore, just loiter around the forum from time to time.

I think it's won me around for the gun arc and the PMM. Definitely sticks in the craw of the PC version without the matchmaking & silver bonus.

I'm going to need to chose between the T28 HTC and the revenant panther.

Can someone tell me which is better for me. You can look up my stats. Hell I'm even going to make it easy to look at my stats:https://console.worl...3-DutchCupid62/

Tanks that I love are: T-54, T-62A, US TDs, fury, fcm 50t, T-34-88 and the M3 light.

Can someone please give me a advise which to choose.

Thanks

If you can, get both. If you can't, then you face a challenge. 

Looks like you like mediums and sniping from the tanks you've mentioned. They're mainly mediums (including the FCM - your most played tank). The HTC is more like driving a Churchill, the Panther more of a sniping medium. 

However your choices include mobile hard-hitting Mediums 3488 and FCM, whereas the Revenant is mobile but maybe not so hardhitting though it has the top gun. 

The Revenant will be on sale again (after this month) and possibly cheaper if not in a bundle. Don't know whether it will come with the skill though. 

 

Get a Panther 88 as a compromise

or the one you can't live without and wailed about when I suggested the 88!  

I hope it helps...   :)
