So not so much Irish as Irish-ish? I suppose on the plus side, it does now make it fine that it's in the British tech tree.

 

But, that price tag! I was so looking forward to buying the tank - not any more.

 

I'm not paying that for a TT tank with a fancy paint job - You haven't even given us a Commander wit a tick Orish accent be'jaysus! to lessen the blow.

Yeah, no fancy crew skill or crew voice, not even an Irish cavalry corps tank. It's just a shame it has been released as an Irish tank, if they change the emblem it'll atleast be Irish and I'll have a reason to buy it.

Just preemptively to anyone who says it's fine because some people from Northern Ireland were in the Guards Armoured Regiment, Northern Ireland is 6 out of 32 counties so an Irish tank should be from the Republic and I think this was WGs intention as shown by the paint and the marketing but the marking on the tank is just not right at all.

Old meta vs. new meta.

 

No one wants to buy crappier versions of tanks they can play for free.

 

The Fighting Girlfriend comes to mind... I think like 4 people bought that...

 

Thanks reskins!

Everyone complaining already that it's better then the tech tree tank needs to relax. You don't even have all the information yet. You are basing these claims off a slightly better aim time alone. Come tomorrow when you can see all the stats if you were to find out it's dispersion while moving and after firing is worse and it's terrain resistance is worse will you still be complaining over it's.2 second improved aim time ? In another post I asked Max if there are other differences besides the aim time and he said there were and that we will see them tomorrow.

well maybe wg needs to revamp tankopedia. all the important stat are on there already. im not buying it cause i have all the britt trainers i need. as ATHF said its the new norm. premiums outclass'n their tt counterparts. even if its a .2 aimtime increase

Agree the price is too high for a premium tech tree Comet.

Poopy armor, poopy gun, slightly higher than average mobility for a medium, poopy HP. Honestly it's the worst tier 7 medium, heck even the PANTHER is a better medium

Price is huge.

If (Banshee) has uniqe cammo paiting the cammo rating has +6 points , twice better the tech tree Comet.

Hull turns 36° only, like a boat.

Damage 140 per shoot for 7 & 8 & 9 level is almost nothing.

The pen is only 148mm (versus E75, Defender, Vk.100.P, Type 4)

The premium ammo has big price and very very low alpha (140 or less HP)

Armor, view range, cammo rating are medicore, not bad * not briliant.

Is this vechicle has something special ?

(except great price

Max,

I see some sandbags on it.  Do they provide extra spaced armour? Is there anything about it other than slightly better aim time that makes it differant from the tt Comet from a performance stand point?  

 

Those are bags o' potatoes, Lad

When I first saw it I was thinking "Buy". I like the TT Comet, it's been a keeper in my garage for a long time. Not the best, but I liked it. 

 

Then I saw the price tag. Even with those sweet crew boost Ops thrown in (which almost got me to buy a Chrysler K) that's a bit steep for a tank I don't really need (already have a lot of British premiums, including the Knight which has a rather comparable gun on a faster platform that only sees Tier VIII). 

 

Pity ya priced me out of considering it. Even if I waited for the Base package I don't see me dropping $32 on this.

I still have hope that they might swap the two emblems around, it'd be pretty easy. Please Rai could you please communicate this to the devs or whoever is involved in this sort of thing.

I would consider buying it if it had a crew xp bonus kinda like the amx chaffee or the T34-88. I have to agree with everyone that why would I want to plunk down 

9,000 gold for a premium tank when i can get practically the same tank for free
