Can someone at WG please explain a little bit more about this tank?

Are the markings real or fake ? If real, then what is this tank based off of ?

And why modern digital camo on a 70 year old tank ?

 

On second thought, 10,300 gold for something that will perform more or less the same as the free tech tree tank ? I'm not interested. 

 

Money saved :great:

 

Also why another extreme weather map ?

Who ever even asked for all this trash in the first place ?

Thanks for the 50kph speed buff on the Centurion 1 & 7/1, but you seem to have missed the FV4202P buff...you know the one that is stuck doing 35kph on console...

I might pay that for an STRV 81 that's on PC which is basically a Centurion 1 with a better turret, and have it be dual training between British crews and Swedish crews, whenever they come out.

If I only had a Baneblade....

Since I haven't really started on any British tanks yet I really wanted a good tier 8 premium but for that price no way. I would have paid 7500 -8000

When are we gonna see stuff we want like the t26e5 heavy, the new heavy french, the vk 100.01 Auf b, the object 252u, T9 an t10 light tanks, and stop with the reskinned garbage? A suggestion if your so interested in reskins how about just selling camo skins for gold? Don't you think that be a bit smarter an easier to do? Give something new to the game for a change I mean the game has potential, but against all the complaining on reskins you just keep pouring them out. I can speak for the majority here, but I've been seriously trying to hang on an not move on to something else in light you'd bring some more a better to the game. How much more I can take I dunno, but as of now it's pretty disappointing :(

Considering how OP the T25E5 ("Patriot" on PC) and Object 252U ("Defender" on PC) are, the wailing of console players will mimic that of PC players.

Lol they aren't op by a long shot, but sure they are strong tho not invincible. The fact is placing those tanks in wallet warrior hands to the hands of the skilled well the skilled make them look good while noobs well are noobs. An the reason pc players wail is it gives noobs a chance to live longer, and the fact that these are good tanks that they better players wanted for themselves(hince the cw tanks to which ever normal to noob players cry about because their exclusive to cw)

Stop holding new premium tanks on ransom with stupid reskins and absurd prices. I want to choose a camo of my choice that is lore friendly (in game camo).

 

If you're going to charge $50 for 1 tank I want personalisation, customisation, exclusivity and lore friendly options that command that cost. 

 

Are you up to the challenge, or am I asking for too much?

 

I would rather see game play improvements before expensive DLC, but I know that's ​beyond your abilities.

Digital camo on a tank that predates CADPAT by several decades? Really not feelin the design choice here. I mean,  anything is better than a laughing skull on the [edited], but that's just too low a standard.

I truly hope you guys wise up with these liveries... I was super excited when PAINGOD revealed that the German Bulldog and/or AMX 13 57 are coming this summer, but now I'm honestly, seriously worried you're going to Munson it with some corny-[edited]camo. It's like your premium tank paint shop is run by teenagers. Please listen to us: We want our premium tanks UNPAINTED! Please!

I realise it's not historic but I think the Huntsman looks cool. Of course it would be great if the all season camo was selectable - so could apply normal camo if desired. 

 

WG - can I ask why the lower power engine was used, but the Huntsman has a higher top speed? Is it compensated for in terrain resistances, or improved gun handling or some other soft stats? Thanks.  :)

Yet another tier 8 medium with a marked up price because of a camo. At this point I think WG cares about money more than making a decent game.

Still not a fan of the camo, but I'll be picking this up in an hour when it releases. I didn't pick up the T25 or even care about it for obvious reasons, but I can't pass up a premium Centurion. It's one of my favorite tanks, and I've been asking for this for a while. (Though I'd rather have had the Strv 81.)

Cancel that, just realized I'm stupid and looked at the dates wrong, and they paced the bundles. Here was me thinking I'd have it today for some reason, when in reality it will be a literal month before I get it.

British high tier premium? shut up and take my money. It won't be amazing but I imagine I'll like this tank and play it a lot. Shame it's running the 20pdr gun but I'll make it work. On a side note I'll be waiting for the base bundle. Do they really have to be staggered like that? I mean I know WG wants everyone to buy the more expensive bundle but it's not going to make me spend more money, just irritate me that I have to wait over a month to buy the tank to save myself a bit of gold :sceptic:
