Only reason to buy it would be if you knew you could not earn it.

Earn - Unless WG have worded the News article wrong (always possible), then the tank doesn't go on sale until the Op ends.

It's probably one of those tanks where you need to buy invisible camo for another 1000 or so gold, so I'll pass.

Pretty much this...unless the article is worded wrong:

 

The M43A8 Thunderbolt VII will be released when the Winter Games campaign ends.”

 

So it’s not like you can complete the January op, then cash in the 50% off discount to buy the tank early....so the only answer seems to be shoot to get it for free and only pay if you can’t complete all 3 ops.

Earn or not get it at all. Not too interested in another Sherman reskin, but it's good enough to where I'll try a little to get it.

I will probably look at thinking about buying it. Dont know why, but I started to play the final fantasy 10 remake and now I dont want to play tanks. Who knows, I might even finish a play thru for the first time since the game came out over 15 years ago. 

I will eat your unhappiness.

This is the easiest earn op ever. If you have the time it is very earnable, if the next 2 months are as easy.

it wont be. Im pretty sure it was a setting up mistake. If anything, it is going to go back to the absolution style earn op.

Im sure the progressive rewards was a mistake as well.   Expect less rewards.   It will be nerfed like the earnings in War Stories and proving grounds.

Didn't they add another 50 point op though? For 35 frags? I don't think they would have done that if they are just going to nerf it next month.

I'd be ok if they made the daily ops normal again. It's WAY to easy right now. You can easily knock them out in 10 games right now.

And the rewards aren't any more giving than the December ops. What if this is just WGs new approach? Did I just jinx it?

Very easy Earn Op so far. I would only pay money for it if you absolutely could not finish it for some reason. 

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

I am not going to buy it just like never got the M4 improved, don't really need another tier 6 Sherman if I'm honest.

 

Thou I am confident I will earn it after the Bravo and Charlie Winter Ops are finished :)

Really another explicit Sherman man what is that now number 10... wait sorry it's 11 wow real original.  This tank is the reward for completing 3 months of getting 500 points per month man so glad its a waste of everyone's time. A tier 6 tank that most would describe as alright is the reward for completing 3 months.  So what happened to earning those "hero" tanks in like a month because if i recall we could earn tanks like the motherland (t54 mod1) and the fatherland (IS-3a) which were tier 8s so yeah we should at least get a tier 8 for 3 months worth of the winter games "campaign".  At the same time can't say I'm surprised by this crap.  Wargaming if you read this please don't give me the tank when i earn it just give me what the gold compensation for it is and i will be a lot happier than you giving me another stupid premium sherman.

Its high time that dedicated and longtime committed players start having a way to set themselves apart from the part-time and less active players .
Earn Only ! And more like it !
As it stands there is nothing to separate the difference between a player with 30k + games and someone who downloaded the game last month and access to a large amount of disposable income.
Long time players with massive amounts of time investment in this game need this !
