Got given a gift card on the weekend. Went mad and got the 6+1 Hero Loot Boxes Warchests. Got a Fatherland which I already have. Ended up with 22K gold and a bunch of other stuff (some useless). Don't know what to spend it on. I already have:

 

131,

Hammer

Minuteman,

Freedom

and a bunch of other premiums that can go like the T34 and afore mentioned Fatherland and the ISU 130.

 

Anyone got any suggestions?

What nation do you require a crew trainer for?

World of tanks Auto lock edition,  because aiming shouldn't be a skill.

Right now in the store, if I had gold to spend I would get that 11,800 tank destroyer package. The charioteer gets mixed reviews but I have seen others  play it well. Anyway, that’s what I’d do.

Not sure I need one.

 

I only play German, US and Russian mediums and heavies. I've never played Polish,Swedish or Czech. Tried Japan (Hated the heavy) and China (Have the Hype 59). I have the Cenntential and Boilermaker for the UK but only ever played 2 games in the Boilermaker

Tempting. I like the look of the Defender and the Somua appears like the AMX 50 100 although it only come out rarely as we're not friends.

Slower than a 50 100, but with far better interclip reload (fires them off like a T57), better gun handling i believe, and enough hull armour on the UFP to bounce IS-3s when angling. "Only" does 1500 dmg per clip though, the 50 100 might do more, not sure.

The gun handling is bad on 50 100. I find the gun trollish as hell at range. A full clip will do 1800 if you can get it to hit the damn target.

The 50 100 also has an additional shot in the clip I think. The Nomad has 5.

I would also graciously accept an AMX CDA. 

 

In all seriousness, either the Patriot bundle or that 22k bundle. You can't go terribly wrong with either.

Any leftover gold can go towards a STA-2 Black. 


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

Take the chance and get black edition tank! STA 2 or Löwe or T34!

That's true. That caught me out a couple of times.

Aiming time is 2.4, with 0.4 accuracy. Don't have the hidden stats to hand for the Somua though atm. My connection was laggy when i was playing it so alot of shots missed, but when my connection wasn't trolling me the gun seemed fairly decent. Again, comparable to the T57 heavy really but it does aim in faster. Not an ideal long range weapon but a demon in a brawl.

Get a Mikromaus, a T-34-88 and a Churchill as crew trainers.

 

Other than that, I can recommend these tanks:

  • Pz. IV Schmalturm - Sniper with an excellent gun and decent mobility. It has the Panther II's stock gun, which sucks at tier VIII, but is very good at tier VI. The turret is also pretty tough.
  • Panther 8,8 - Did not like it when I bought it, but they must have buffed it. Pretty quick with a great gun.
  • T-44-100 - One of my two favorite tier VIII mediums. No spectacular features, but no weaknesses either, and adds up to a great package.

I got the TD bundle and I'm really happy with it. The Skorpion and Yazi are both great tanks. Didn't even give the vindicator a chance though. Traded it for an AMX 13 57.

Save it until the next fiscal quarter, they'll come out with something new and exciting if nothing currently feels like you gotta have it.

Thanks everyone for the great suggestions.

 

Is the Defender 252 any good? The Nomad is tempting. Not bothered by the Black Tanks, although the free T34 could be used for the STa2. Also debated the McDragon but I can't get passed the looks.
