  1. Honestly, they could make this a TD instead. It kinda fits the line for the 4005 if it weren’t for the armor. Increase the base pen a bit, maybe the APCR as well to 260-ish realm. Nerf the gun handling on the move a bit. The brit now have 2 prem tier 8 medium. But none for TDs. They only have AT-15A at tier 7 and that’s fits the Badger line.

  2. Why do we keep getting given crap like this when what we really want is the Chieftain Mk6 and whatever leads up to it. Instead we get “gibs us moar of your munny”

    1. Wot playerbase has been on decline for quite a while, it makes more economic sense to make a quick buck out of it via investing your time to develop (and balance, if they are still even concerned about it) a plethora of t8 prems.

      Appealing to players’ demand by introducing a t10 tank they’ve requested for so long is sure better for the game’s longevity in the long run, but when your product is nearing the end of its life cycle, it doesn’t make much sense to do it. Might as well make a quick cash out of it that you can invest in developing other games to diversify your portofolio

  3. Tier 8 Premiums any nation any era!
    I guess countless hundreds on WG drawing boards it seems?, I guess in a few years there will be as many Premium Vehicles as standard tech tree vehicles

    not pay-to-win then eh WG?

    If Wargame spent only 50% of what it costs to develop T8 Premiums on the actual game WOT itself and all its issues & problems this for years and “major epic” patch 1.0 did “nothing” in that area at all
    same shit but now on just 25 shiny HD Maps (with so many problems in maps

    The game would be far, far better to play and enjoy


  4. Don’t need another premium medium, Chimera should be a TD instead. That way they can improve the gun handling, strip off the armor, and have a tank that’s both fun to use and to shoot at.
