Why should I buy a gold tank tier 8 and only fight tier 10 with that tank? I had a Lycon tier 7 and had to fight tier 9 all the time. If i want to fight tier 10 tanks, I'll bring out my own tier 10 and not my tier 8.

just get a PMM tank (preferential match making) like the KV-5, Jagdtiger 8,8cm, T26E4, Sta-2 etc. if you do not want to fight tier 10s

I don't know. No one else at tier 8 ever has to see tier 10. :harp:

Wait... premium vehicles? Is that what you mean by gold? Makes grinding silver pretty easy. Gives a crew a chance for more than one Daily Double XP bonanza. Some are a whole lot of fun to play. 

 

Also, bottom-tier does not equate to bottom of the table.

I’m hoping for a translation error, but nothing surprises me anymore.

Did they add gold camo? Must have missed that in the Patch Notes! :trollface:

Well, at least the Minuteman and the Warlord have severe golden bits if that serves for something!

 

Still, i can't wait for fully chromed and gold tanks. Pure GT5 and GT6 paint chip nostalgia out there. :trollface:

Wasn't the Warlord supposed to have been all gold before it came out.  After they announced it, even the pic they put on the Tankopedia had it in all gold. They obviously changed that.  I'm sure there's a pic of it like that floating around somewhere on the Internet.

Oh my! Haven't heard of it till now. Perhaps the bling-bling warlord panther was too much and was downgraded fearing massive complains like when WG C-B came out with that cel-shading filter without advise.

 

EDIT: Here it is by the way. Looks actually down-scaled on brightness and, because of that, quite adequate.

Found it.  Was in the original News Thread.  This guy had a pic of it from the Tankopedia page.  From his post, sounds like they changed the pic in the middle of the day it was released.

Oh yes! This is way more complete, with that touch of the samurai panther!

I think i prefer this one, but you know what happens when the art lead looks like an extra of Static-X...  :rolleyes:

I don't know if it's because I'm so used to seeing the Warlord Panther in Black & Gold and this is something different, but I kind of like it as well.  I especially like that little Samurai emblem on the front.  Wonder why they never included it?  

 

I actually miss being able to see the tanks on Tankopedia from this angle.  I like all the info they've added on the Tankopedia page, but you don't really get a good view of the tanks anymore.  You get a much better feel for the look from the top down angled view.

Even without the gold, that red Samurai helmet would look pretty sharp in contrast with the current black version.  Wish they'd kept that part.

They are there to make credits, I guarantee you’re not always bottom tier stop over exaggerating. Even in TT tier 8s you’ll fight 10s at times. Just deal with it and don’t cry. Make the best of it and you’ll be just fine

That wouldve made at least one good point to buy the Tank. Though only for ppl who like getting shot by friend and foe alike. (That Cat in the Armor Emblem is stupid again though)
