Title says it all, I am wondering what you guys/girls/gunships/other think about this :)

Quick reminder:

  • Žižka Škoda T 40 hero tank (base bundle) costs 5500 gold
  • Škoda T 40 costs 3700 gold (or atleast it does on the pc version, not including garage slot)

 

To be honest I am not a big tank collector myself, but I just want to have atleast 1 premium tank for every nation in order to speed up crew training.

So the question is: is the hero version worth the extra 1800 gold? (or 1500 when including the garage slot) Or would it be better to just wait a couple of days/weeks for WG to release the standard version?

The built-in Camo is worth ~600G, so its only really an extra 900G you're paying for the "Early Access" and unique skin

 

Which, honestly, isn't that bad...

I agree with leova. What's the early access worth to you? Is it worth an additional $5.00? Only you can answer this. Also WG has not officially said when the TT Skoda T 40 will be released. Maybe in a week or so, maybe in a couple months. Who knows

How is the Skoda T40? I'm thinking of buying it on PC since I have the T-34/100 on my PC account.

I've played 4 - lost 4 and been destroyed 100% in my PS4 Zizka.

 

MM has had me in tier 8 twice and tier 7 once, so far I'm really not enjoying my new tank experience.

 

Crew training is really going to be a grind if this keeps up.

I think on yesterday's stream Raibot said tech tree version is out on 17th, near the end of the stream. Can someone confirm this?

 

Edit: I checked the stream and I'm wrong. She just comments that Zyzka will be available only until 17th.

its worth 600 gold, right, but i would always buy with an 50% discount (next comes in march), so 300 gold. same with the garage slot - 150 gold (50% off)

its better to deal with 3700 + 150 + 300 = 4150

exactly, its one of those things that you have to say "Is a few extra bucks here worth saving the time and earning the extra Crew XP until the new one arrives?

for many the answer is yes, for some its no

True, but that assumes that those items are always available on sale(which they arent)

Usually when comparing "values" of things, its best to use the Most-Commonly-Available values, and that usually not sale values

You guys have a point there.... however I do not consider the Žižka Škoda T 40 as early acces, since the base bundle got released on the same date as the tech tree.

That is correct, and that is reason why I started the poll, since I believe I am not the only tanker here doubting on what to do... so i wanted to know some opinions of others before making a choice :)

The regular Skoda T40 isnt available in the tree, so it actually is (unfortunately) Early Access

Yeah, I'm definitely still debating it. I might end up getting it because I'll end up getting the SkodaT40 anyway, so I may as well start now.

~2 years ago they had a 75% off Camo Sale, my pockets were so empty afterwards, but it was all worth it :medal:

It's not like most mediums, and will punish any mistakes harshly. the armour is flimsy and won't bounce many shots, but the gun depression is half decent and it's very nippy. Unlike the STA-2, I wouldn't use this to work ridge lines, this tank is more of an ambush predator. Gun rammer, vents and optics, and when you can't snipe from afar, creep up and ambush, then run away. In good games, I can get several kills, and that's usually zipping around, finishing off battered tanks that team-mates have left behind. It is possible to circle-strafe, but be VERY careful that the opfor can't out-turn you, and know your enemy so that you can dodge their shot and time your attack during their reload. KV2's are easy prey as the big derp gun has a 24 second reload, and if you're lucky to dodge their initial shot, that gives you plenty of chance to close in and finish them off.

Skoda T 40 is currently on 20% discount for 2960 gold on the TT. That was something I was waiting so I've bought one.

And in the first battle I've expected that this is that famous forum's "turd" that I've read so much and I should endure. It surprised me that the tank is actually quite good. And I've realized that this forum's "turd" is basically very close to the forum's "OP" T-34-88. The T 40 has better engine and almost the same power to weight ratio so the same agility; marginally lower top speed; same damage per shot; far better penetration in expense of about half second slower reload time. And practically the only thing that the "OP" T-34-88 is way better is the turret traverse which itself is not the most important thing.

So actually they both are good tanks and neither T 40 is turd nor T-34-88 is OP.


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

Zizka looks asinine and I would rather have the regular one. But it is what it is. Still a decent tank. Could be better and more exciting but it does the job. I guess it's nice not having to camo it but from a looks standpoint, it is pretty ugly with the flag paint job.
