This doesn't surprise me in the slightest.  People kept clamoring about how cool it would be to have "Tank Girl" tanks in the game.  Well....be careful what you wish for.

Great video. On point, and straight to the point.

 

What about this guy?

 

 

He totally deserves his own tank.

Oh look, Mcdonalds happy meal tanks, just what the game needs..........to reverse the recent positive mood after 4.7 and the Polish tanks.

Guys,

 

it’s very simple. World of tanks, Fortnite and Mad Max decided to have 3 way. WoTC got pregnant and gave birth to 3 monstrosities ...

 

What game are kids age 10-15 playing? It’s Fortnite! As WG wants to make some more cash they need to make tanks attractive to wide audience willing to spend money (parents money) hence they are taking inspiration from one of the most popular console/PC game there is on the market. How much more money can a tanker after 2-3 years of playing spend? Not much as it is getting harder to rationalise another £20-£30 spend on pixels. Kids or young people who are into Fortnite don’t have this problem. This comically looking post apocalyptic spiky things shooting other things are so cool ... rockets and spikes, rockets and spikes ...

 

I understand why is WG doing it. They are trying to move away from a tank nerd game to a funky fast paced Fortnite style of game. The question is if the FN generation won’t get bored after 100-200 games and won’t spend anymore money in the long term. That looks like is not an issue for WG, who cares about long term ...

 

I spent money on this game but I won’t do it again as this is not a game I love and enjoy. Pure greediness changed it beyond recognition

gigantic trash ... no other comment is possible: why did this game end up in the hands of developers under seven years of age (not to say much worse) ? :child:

P.S. these tanks must absolutely be killed first, in game; this should be a firm commitment for all players over ten years of age...

They look ridiculous. I'm also not surprised at all. With that said, WG have been doing well with other things lately, the twitch op, earn ops, silver ops, new sounds, new tanks, sales etc. So i'd rather have to deal with 3 stupid ugly tanks and also get alot of positive things, than just have the game feel stagnant like it did a few months ago. 

 

Well tbf i'd rather just have the good bits without these utterly ridiculous, sad, pathetic new prem mercs tbh, but nothing is perfect.

I would’ve preferred them to not be reskins of Tanks we *just sold* brand new within the last 3 months. Other than that I’m not really bothered by it. Hell, I think one of the first ever posts I made in Game Suggestions over 2 years ago was asking for the Tank Girl tank to be put in the game! It was always one of my favorite movies, though I never really read the comics.

I don’t necessarily like some of the choices that have been made in lieu of more sensible ones, but it’s not like they’re gonna change much once the credit cards start flying. WoTMerc content has always been a roller coaster of awesome-to-garbage but they always push whatever pays the bills and continue to repeat the successes........ reskins are successful and Mercs have been successful despite the vocal protests to the contrary. If you think you’ll make it through 2019 without more of those two things you should quit now, but they’ll still keep kicking out TT tanks and other features in between for those of you who ignore the things you don’t like and play the tanks you do.

really strange ... I wonder why I expected a post exactly as you did ... well done, dude, well done; WGCB will be happy with you :medal:

My feeling is that it's more likely WG had planned 6 - 12 months of content ahead of time, released mercs, saw they weren't well received, started changing direction, but still have to release the content that had been planned/commissioned/paid for by that point due to sunk cost fallacy, and waiting for X months to see if general opinion changes.

These childish comic eye sore tanks should not be in this game, end of story, they look like somebody has been playing borderlands and watched mad max and wanted a fusion of the two, neither of which sit in this game. No surprises from WG for bringing out yet more dross.. and yet i've seen these on the battlefield...what kinda player actually buys this garbage anyway??

Funny thing, when I take out my new mercs for a funny ride, first one evidently want to kill me is green team... That is especially in case of T.A.N.K. Of the Banana Smasher they are still afraid of and generally running away, must be the shark fins, or the viking axes... But I will have revenge! There is battery rack of anti vampire wooden sticks at the back of my third merc...:justwait:

...and yes, I had them. Couldn't resist... :amazed:

Just think about how great the comic tanks would look in comic mode!!!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spoiler (for those not around during comic mode)

 


There are still some severe frustrations, but I still love to play.

At 20K for a tier VII & 2 tier VIII tanks that is not bad. I wish they were sold separately at the around 7K price (I am not a fan of bundling they hide the one thing you want behind a sort of paywall). As for realistic come-on now really that went out the door with the physics change. Heck this is a game where a steel gun can magically pass through steel tanks & rocks firing the whole time when did this GAME ever have the realism so many suddenly seem to care so much about? When I complained about the new physics & mentioned that with them when I play lights I get motion sicknesses many here in the forums some that have even posted here said just do not play lights so, to them I say simply do not buy them! There is no medals or Achievements that require you to buy them & there is no reason at all to buy them if you do not like them. As an alternative history fan, a fan of post-apocalyptic things like Mad Max & as a huge fan of dystopian SF I like these as well as WS & the whole mercenary concept. I like 90% of what WGCB is doing to keep the game going on console in the face of intense competition on multiple front on console as well as the changing face of console gaming.

 

Any way that is my personal opinion on all this. I hope everyone even if you do not agree with my opinion has a great, fun & safe week.
