Sometimes the mind boggles. If they were a car company they would release a new vehicle and a few months later they would start advertising it ...

In the meantime people have already spent their money on something else. :facepalm:


Remember, it's just a game!

Does anyone know if the alpine tiger has PMM like the WZ-111 on PC?

lol this sums up wargamings marketing strategy 

 

You forgot the sarcastic quotation marks around the word "strategy". :trollface:

 

Communication has never been a strong suit of WG. Four years and zero lessons learned.

Are the Type 59 Dragon sales that good? Hardly ever see them

 

I have seen quite a few ( hard to miss :trollface:)   I think they have sold just as well or better than the Sabaton or Volk .

I would imagine so as it has the 175mm pen on standard rounds. The stats seem either very close or identical to PC. However I wouldn't want to call it either way as the King McDragon only had 9mm more pen to see tier 10 over the Type 59. 

 

It looks like a Chinese hybrid of the Fatherland/ Glory, with the better mobility, gun handling buffs from PC and the pen dropped for PMM. Is that about right? I don't have the 112...

I've talked to a few owners of the McDragon in game. They seem quite happy with them outside of tier 10 battles. The extra training was certainly tempting. 

 

I want to know what the bonuses and tiers are for the Alpine Tacky, I think PC had wacky bonuses? Be good to know if the bonuses hand out like the gift shop the paint job came from.

The only thing I can think of why they don't announce the premiums before there launch now is they don't want people saving there money for a vehicle they know will be coming later and have them not buy what's in the store now. For example they just put the Rudy back on sale recently I wonder how many of the people who bought that wouldn't have if they knew the HMH T34-85M was going to be released in a couple days. But in the end I'm just happy the content is rolling out.

"It's your isp"

I'm sure the reason is 1 of those.

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

 

Can you tell us when the WZ-111 Model 5A is going to be released, I was under the impression that it also was scheduled for today ? And when will the prices for the loaded and base bundles will be released for the Alpine Tiger and the Yazi WZ-120-G FT ?

 

Thanks in advance.

Well, I got the bundle with the McDragon as I already had the light tank so that gold was refunded making my cost around 8300 or so which I was okay with. I played 4-6 battles with it last night after getting it and I have to say that I am liking it quite a bit. I got it mainly for the additional crew training bonus as tanks with the 3rd bonus are far and few between. I was able to pen the beefy defender as well as that monstrous tier VIII german heavy (can't remember its actual name) but I was able to chew both of them down and finish them off. I didn't have any problems with tier IX's and many X's except that dang deathstar which I just couldn't get a good shot on so of course I got sent back to the garage quite quickly.

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.

 

It was probably deliberate play by the marketing, if people believe King Dragon is the only thing they will buy it as there are no other tanks coming. Have they had a choice they would go with HT or TD so now they bought King Dragon and there is a chance they will spend more money on something that they actually wanted.

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? 

 

This has always been one of my biggest complaints about the sale of premium tanks. Why do you not give notice time so that when I see a tank coming out that I want I can save up for it and buy it when it is released. At least the Yazi camo actually looks decent this time, not sure about the name though

PC has 2x silver bonus. Lol at King McDragon, it does look like it came  from Mickey D, maybe WG can sell them some kind of sponsoring deal. Something like adopt a tank.

I don't want to say "Your comms suck", but... "Your comms suck".

 

Why release the Chinese medium, heavy and TD so close together if you don't have breathing room to promote/advertise them properly?

 

Irrespective of whether you are doing it to boost sales or not, it just makes you look amateurish. 

 

Plus you managed to release the T-34-85M in the middle of all this to muddy the waters even further.
