Looking through the trade in list I see the Bourrasque is there. I have a T26E5 that I've never played from somewhere (Ranked Lootbox probably) and I was wondering if it was worth swapping for the Bourrasque? I'm a fan of the french lights and love the BC25T when it works and I've just had a couple of thousand gold from a long haul. I've also never bothered with the US mediums. Any advice?

Makes sense to trade a tank that you don't use for one that you will.

Tank you will never play or a two shot french autoloader?

My money is on saying to hell with them both and getting the T.A.N.K.

Then you can run derp lights back to back
Why bother anymore

I am pondering the same trade!

 

(The T26E5 is the Patriot, so it's actually a heavy - Basically it's a faster firing T32.  Very strong turret.  Good view range.  OK, but not great mobility).

 

I have both the skinned and unskinned versions, and as I barely play either, so trading one of them for the Bourrasque looks like a winner from my perspective.

But I have the Turtle and T49 for that. The T49 seems to induce rage in some red players.:trollface:

No!

 

I just hate Bourrasques, Vanguards and E25 :angry:. The T49 is less annoying for me. 

 

Seriously, go for it. If I could, I would do it.

Tell that to the E100 I farmed and the vanguard that I derped. Thread softly and carry a big german stick.

Sure do! Burat is unique and cool, very fun to play, some even say it is op (it is not). Patriot is outdated, still being good enough, but no real reason to play it.

I would only trade in tanks I earned for free, but that's just me.

He did. Reading comprehension is becoming a lost art.

I agree.  Get the Bourrasque it is fairly unique.  The Patriot is not.  Even with the buff, I am not sure the Patriot is worth playing. I traded the Patriot in on something last year, I can't remember what.  It might have been the Hydra. 

 

The Bourrasque is fun to play.

Biurrasque is the perfect run and gun gun. Who doesn‘t like Gungans?

No. Normal Tank. Big Alpha, slow reload. It's in the TOA (Tier of Annoyance) even below the Bellerophon and the Inferno.
