i’m hoping WGCB has taken the constructive criticism from its player base and never release more premiums like them

This is what happens when people joke about how "neat" it would be to have Tank Girl tanks in the game.  :P

They've been on sale for more than 2 weeks now, did you just discover them ? :D

Banana Buster is actually pretty powerfull for a PMM VII heavy.

I think the banana split would’ve been better used for the earn op

WG - Any chance of getting a Banana Buster with the spikes removed? If you can maybe swap the harpoon gun wiggly bit for a machine gun, or just remove it altogether then that would be great. But definitely give it a less silly name. 

 

A couple of quick changes to the skin, even keep the same collision model. Call it the Armadillo or something and I'll buy it. I can't say fairer than that. I want to give these tanks a fair chance.

I made a list of the worst tier 8 premiums:

1. Banana Buster (used to rent movies with the same name)

2. Beach Party (actualy not bad gun, but wooden stakes aren't sharp enough to pen vampires)

3. T.A.N.K. (Rockets don't work)

4. Bog Horror (such a waste of good lettuce)

5. McDragon (cause it hurts your eyes)

 

Disclaimer: *List is my own, not official.


 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

 

New updated poll - please take a minute and cast your votes for the least preferred map in rotation (2019)

Sold all of mine to buy a tier 10 realised the amount of xp I could have used on Tec tree tanks.

The Outcasts:

They are ok in my opinion as I saw some of them in battle and thought that they aren't as bright and colourful as seen in the pictures. In the heat of the battle I barely recognise them. It is good, that wishes of some few players are fulfilled by WG if it doesn't screw with the rest of us.

On the other hand, I hope they don't release new reskins of mercenaries as childish as these are.

 

In the end: These tanks are here to stay so we should learn to live with them. Anything other than that will only lower our own feelings while playing the game and suddenly nearly everything else of the game is bad in our mind too.

 

The other Mercs:

I really, really, really like them.

The Banana Buster is just a reskin of this tank.

They just buffed the vehicle speed and traverse a little on the Banana Buster.

Less armor (10 tons worth) makes it go faster.

I agree with most of the above. The Banana Buster is actually quite subdued in battle but the T.A.N.K. is still as loud as 1000 watts pumped through some Bose 901's. But between Trinity, Sharpshooter, and Absolution I have to give the merc line an overall thumbs up.

Yeah.  What's funny, is I didn't get the Boulder because it was sooooo slow, even though it handled pretty good.  However, I'm tempted to get the Buster basic bundle because it's way more mobile, even though it is a bit uglier.   :playing:

Call me crazy but I'm getting the Buster for nothing more than a crew for The Machine. :teethhappy:

Same plan here

*cough*

 

And guys, don't mix the Banana Buster up with Beach Party.

Buster is the tier 7 with PMM, Party is the Trinity mk2 tier 8

I would call myself a Mercenaries Collector by now. I won't buy any, but I use the contracts to grind my normal lines and get something more for it. By now I have the Needle, Caboose, Stubbs, Thrasher, Lawgiver, Deadbolt and Longbomb and I am waiting for the Centrifuge because I want that thing so much.

Are you doing the Brotherhood op? Still a month to go for one of the best tier 6 premiums/heavies in game.

I really liked the bog horror camo, they should stop putting tacky eyeballs on stuff, kills it for me.
