No Free Tank in 2017

UPDATE: According to the Minsk Insider, the tank turned out too OP and Wargaming did not foresee it… It was a bit worse than Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. J apparently.

Bad news arrive from our Russian colleagues. Wargaming, for the first time in 5 years, on the seventh birthday of World of Tanks, will leave everyone without a gift tank! We all expected the T-29 (Soviet tier 3 premium medium). Tanks given the last years in August:

2013 — LTP.
2014 — Type 97 Te-Ke.
2015 — BT-7 artillery.
2016 — T-45.
2017 — nothing.

PS: I just hope they will give us the Ke-Ni Otsu instead. It’s in the game files since a very long time and WG did not use it for anything so far.
