While I am happy these tanks are in store I am beyond annoyed that WG couldn't give us a heads up that they were being released.  I really don't get the marketing department at all.  Why hype the Dragon 59 presale but not these tanks?

A. If it's not German, Russian or American the devs couldn't care less and

B. It's Shrove Tuesday so that means it's a holiday for anyone who works at wargaming.

C. The players like surprise's, remember the December overview that took nearly 2 weeks to get right

The marketing and development teams don't talk to one another. I figured that has become apparent by now.

At the same time they were hyping the release of the king dragon the T-34-85m (a tank people have requested on the forums for some time) was released without even a whisper from the marketing team. It just appeared in the store.

War is a Democracy and the enemy always gets a vote.

3 MoE's: E-25, M41 Walker Bulldog, E-50, Snakebite, E-75 - In order obtained

Hello,

 

I’ll share your comments with the events team.  Do know that we have to let other tanks have their spotlight before we introduce new tanks to the public. With that said, I know tankers would like a bit of information down the road.  

Thanks!

"It's your isp"

"because we are different from pc"

"the stats say its balanced"

"we will look into it"

"We are not removing people's favourite tank from the game"

I'm sure the reason is 1 of those.

Thanks for the response Rai.  I don't normally complain on the forums but if I was someone that wanted a Chinese premium and bought the Dragon 59 because I thought that was all that was coming out I would be rather upset right now.  Just a simple mention that it was going to be released would have been sufficient.

Understood.  I appreciate your honest feedback.  I’ll talk with the team to figure out a better way to communicate new releases.  Tanks!

Definitely will be useful to see what packages are likely to be available and when for both.

3 MOEs - Nashorn, M36 Jackson, SU-100, S35CA

2 MOEs - Type 58, Pzkpfw T25, Matilda IV, WT Pz IV, JagdPanther, SU-100Y

Then you just don't sell it until you've decided that the other tank has had its time in the spotlight.

But it seems in this case while still letting those tanks have the spotlight, someone decided they needed to rush these things out with no warning that they were going to be released this month. Most likely saw the King Dragon and thought that was it because there certainly was nothing hinting that there was more VIII Premiums to come.

 

 

These tanks seem to have been rushed out with so little planning put in that they still don't have the Tankopedia entries.


Garage : 

'Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of morons who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.'

'The term "casual gamer" is actually not accurate enough anymore to describe what the larger market is like. They want the illusion of accomplishment, but not the effort associated with it. The players aren't really doing anything, something else is doing it for them, and the player takes the credit for it.

^ this, I just checked as well and neither are in tankopedia - how do you expect sales when we have no stats about either tank?

 

it really does make no sense

Hm what a surprise.

 

It really seems like they are spamming the store with premium tanks at the moment. 

This really looks like they want to suck the last penny out of my wallet. 

But it ain't workin' out in my case. Sry WG :bush:

I wonder whether the Community Contributors and those with press accounts knew that this was coming. They will be hastily trying to rush out reviews otherwise. 

 

I understand that this happens, but there was a time when the tanks came out less frequently and the monthly overviews gave us advance notice to start saving...

They didn't want these new tanks to hurt McDragon sales .   They would rather take some flak for the lack of communication than lose sales .

Great job, Wargaming. You finally sold a Tiger that isn't an actual Tiger tank. :teethhappy:
