why is that the only winning move?  Just curious since there are things like premium days reward and the fun of fighting in data file tanks.

 

Well I don't need premium time and I can do everything else without limiting myself to playing only one nation.

Perhaps you'd consider me a potato, but I needed to work on my Japanese heavy so I chose japan, the prize tanks weren't in my consideration at all.

I will be fighting for China this weekend, as I would really like the Chinese prize tank, but I am ready to fight for America or Germany if they get in......though I might prefer the Freedom over the Hammer if it comes down to it.......

The only tank out of all the possible prizes I want is the Swedish wedge. However, not only do I not think Sweden has a hope in hell of winning its round much less the whole thing but the TT Swedish tanks I have I don’t really like and aren’t great so they’re not fun for me to play.

 

For that reason I see no reason to play for the tank I want and instead play for the nation I think will win. Getting something is better than getting nothing. 


I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

I can't help but think that most people didn't frame their choice of participation according to which tank they want to receive as a prize during Tank Madness.  That should be the determinant: according to your personal garage, which tanks would you like to be options for the final weekend prize, and then which of those you want to win the most.  

I realize everyone likes to get 3 days of premium, and likes to complete these competition ops with their favorite tanks that have good crews in them.  But that just creates an effect where the nation in your personal garage with the strongest lineup gets stronger, and your real garage needs get ignored.  I really wanted the Senshi, but that option is gone.  The Stark was my first choice when this was announced, with the Legion third.  Everyone has different garages, so I get that other people might want/need the Liberte, Zizka, etc.....but I can't help thinking that most people are lacking Swedish, Chinese, and Japanese premiums vs. American, German, and French.  

And if you aren't going to be able to play much on a preliminary weekend, consider choosing the country you want to knock out and only getting one completion.  The competition is so close that you would contribute to the outcome.

Of course, on the final weekend you need to pick what you want to win, and possibly temper that with who you think will win.  But I really hate the idea of getting a second Hammer, even if it is considered a different tank with paint/emblems different from the Hammer.

p.s.  I hate you all for eliminating the Senshi from the available prize tanks.

 

I was all set to disagree with you but I realized that you are right.  Picking the wrong nation won't cost a premium tank until the final round.  Might as well get two or three completions for the nation you really want to win in the early rounds.  Another strategy:  choose the nation you want to lose and get no completions.

 

(Unfortunately for you, I have no Japanese, Czech, or Swedish tanks at the moment so I won't be picking the nations you probably want.)

I thought the CDC was better? i have no idea though.

 

​Nope, the Liberte is a more proper medium. Same punchy gun, but considerably better armor AND has PMM. The CDC has speed, and that's about it, very easy to run into trouble and the concealment just isn't there.
