Have there been any details on the reward Hellkitty yet? Ive not been able to watch the streams etc so would have missed if mentioned on there.

 

Cheers

Chris

Gosh I hope it doesn't just have the same gun as the Tier V Sherman derp.

They didn’t publish the official stats for the IS2-M until about a month before the games ended.  I’m sure they’ll publish the stats once it’s gone through testing.

I thought it was in the first month?

Maybe.  It wasn’t immediately was the point I was making.  They only announced the Hellcat like 2 weeks ago and Rai confirmed it had yet to enter testing and that the stats aren’t final.

I wonder if you qualify for the end of year reward if you buy the 2M I completed two of the three spring games and I’d hate to miss out on it just because of that. Though I’ll admit they aren’t scary to face...in a Dreadnought

just a guess i have no knowledge but it would seem if you get a participation medal for every quarter you should definitely qualify for a discount ... get all gold medals then the discount is 100%.  Just working logically it seems if you completed one month each quarter you would qualify but your discount I would guess is 25%. 

 

So what kind of sucks is if you are a new player and didn't start until spring games and don't qualify for the year end tank even though you might have 3 gold medals.  Makes me suspect you will get a 75% discount in that case.

 

Kind of ridiculous this hasn't been layed out and we are in the 3rd quarter.

No information until the end of Charlie when the tank is coming out.

really??? I thought the previous price tank stats were given out way way before the end of Charlie. 

 

Is this due due to it still needing tweaking?

 

thanks for he reply

RaiBOT01 previously said that stats won’t be finalized until the tank has gone through testing.  If there’s no stats to share it likely means it hasn’t gone into(or finished) testing yet.  To be fair with the other tanks(Tbolt/IS-2M) they were existing vehicles with existing balance data from PC to base any early stats on.  The Hellcat 105 is gonna be a Console exclusive and as such will need more testing and adjustments than a tank which already exists.  I mean, yeah.... I agree they should have stats ready with the announcement....  but the combination of “Hellcat” and “Derp” already sounds good to me! Lol.

I don't think it's a console exclusive. The tank was teased on PC as well I believe.

What tear is this Hellcat 105 going to be: - 5, 6, or 7?

most likely tier 5 or 6. 7 is too high for a hellcat armed with a 105mm derp gun, it will struggle to pen any tier 8 and 9 it encounters let alone struggle to pen tier 7 tanks. 105mm howitzers typically have an HE penetration value of around 58mm even on arty, as such it will naturally just bounce off most tier 8 and 9 tanks without doing any damage, while doing a couple hundred damage at most on tier 7 tanks. Also expect it to have the typical 105 accuracy of around .55 deviation.

The T78 is a different variation.

It was announced as a tier VI.

A Tier VI with the Tier IV/V derp gun was what sprung to mind when I first saw it announced. The effect was not unlike finding maggots in your burrito.

Agreed -_-

 

The month long X2 XP reward for completing summer games ops is a better reward,(I think) than that laughable combo of a hellcat with crappy 105 howitzer at tier 6.. 

 

like really WG?

 

Just like what a GREAT idea it was to give the tier 4 Lawgiver the same tier 3 howitzer thats on the Grobtraktor Krupp and that tier 3 has PMM but someone thought it would be a good for the Lawgiver to fight tier 6 @_@

I don't know, while a Hellcat with a 105mm derp gun could be bad, if it were given the right ROF or if its gun ends up having higher alpha damage and/or pen than a normal 105mm it could also potentially be one of the most enjoyable premiums released.
