Is there any info on the prize tank? If its just another sherman 75mm gun (92 pen...), I'm definitely not even going to bother with this event or even the tryouts.

Are there stats available for the Champion Sherman or is it just another Sheman?

Not yet, but we`ll do out best to share it as soon as it is possible.

Unfortunately no.

I was thinking WG would charge even more then this.   While I'm not happy about the price and would rather they be lower,much lower for these and all Premium tanks.

 

I'm going to buy the Mega bundle, I know I shouldn't and it will only encourage WG to keep prices high but I'm weak and can't help myself :(

You are supporting a project that you like and helping it to have all the regular updates! That is really great, don`t feel sad about it! ;)

I know, that was my question to them. I am downloading the stream to get a full and accurate transcript of it for a thread.

 

Edit: The reply basically boiled down to "Well that's tough, we are a completely different game despite having the same vehicles, maps, name, and parent company"... I am not happy with that reply to be honest...

We are completely different platforms, that makes the huge difference for the dev and publisher team, which is not that obvious for tankers and shouldn`t even be.

OP how? Do you know full stats of those tanks?

 

From what’s in tankopedia, defender got a rof and traverse speed nerf comapared to pc version.

 

It’s reasonable to expect gun handlig nerfs.

 

Namless was op on pc and there was lot of crying but console Namless got nerfed into an average tank.

A few more days and they will go live so we`ll share the full stats.

I agree myself i do have some russian tanks to grind atleast but if I don't make it the tank bowl then big deal.  I thought the panther wasn't much to think about but this is less.

For 140,000 gold, that bundle better come with a year's supply of Vodka.

It would be nice to have a tank bowl for other nation excluding the big 3.

Hello Serpia.

 

I understand you are just trying to do some damage control but this answer just felt dismissive. Increasing the prices of premium tanks has been an ongoing trend and the outcry over it has been getting worse and worse with every new batch of premium vehicles. This response from a Wargaming staff member merely brushed the question aside and treated it as if it wasn't even something worthy of discussion. I would even like to direct your attention here for some of the commotion this response has stirred up with the community.

 

Regards,

An ex-paying customer

You guys nerf the Defender, then jack the price up by 3k... somehow I'm not surprised. Anyhow, thanks for saving me $62, because that's one expensive premium I will no longer be buying. I'm not even sure I'll be buying the Patriot, either. I'll see how I feel about that tank on the 4th of next month. However, I will be buying the AMX M4 mle 49 instead of the Defender, since the AMX was brought over un-nerfed.

 

Also, 100 points just to get in the front door for the tankbowl is pretty steep given the prize. I'd have to get 6 and 2/3rds completions worth of points just to get in and then do another 2 or 3 in order to have a chance at winning a tier V Sherman with a meh gun... On second thought, keep the Sherman. I'll pass on the whole thing this year. :teethhappy:

 

It's good to see the normal KV-4 Kreslavskiy on the tankopedia, though. I'll buy that when I can get it in a base bundle (hopefully next month).

I'm just waiting to confirm if its true that you're giving away an even worse prize tank than last year, with an even more predictable winning team than last year.

 

I mean, really. C'mon. You use flowery language like "event of the season"... at least make it worth showing up for.


If you think you see me coming, you're just imagining things...

honestly not sure why you want that.  It's honestly not that good of a tank other than a silver generator...

Hi Serpia WG, please answer my question about quoting below.

"How does a nation win?

The nation with the highest average completions (per qualifying players) will win TANKBOWL. "

 

Does this mean winning condition is not just the total sum of completions but stats of "average completions" of nation's participants ?

In other words the more participants join the TankBowl, the more completions would be needed to raise the average completion stats, right ? :unsure:

*Winning condition: Total completions/nation's participants (passed tryouts and got st least one completion (to qualify for rewards))

Then how many completions should I (we) get to confirm my (our) nation's victory ? :confused:

Since the prize tank is not to die for, people will pick nation they are grinding to get xp and silver bonus.

 

Personally I don’t have any tanks for usa or ussr that are work in progress but need to train some soviet crews so I’ll join the red team.

The consensus seems to be USSR.  There’s a lot more OP Soviet tanks than OP US tanks.  There’s also more OP Soviet tanks that people earned for free last year too.  If you need further information/confirmation then go look for the polls and threads in General Discussion or read the comments on FB.

I wouldn't be suprised if they changed the armor model on both or either like how they ruined they nameless. Will have to wait and see
