With the Loza Sherman in store, I personally think it looks great. I enjoy Sherman’s and I think it would be a great addition to my Fury and my Shreiking. 

 

But 8k golf for a E8 with minuscule differences, no thanks. More expensive than a tier 8 premium.

Yeah, that pricing is a little kudicrous for an E8 with a cool camo.

Surprised they didn't just repackage the Jumbo into a premium, would have been more like them to do so.

Here is an image of an m4 sherman hull with the M26 turret, and 90mm gun.

 

Why can't we have this as a tier 7 premium to the t20, the difference being this theoretical M4 (90mm) Has better gun stats and turret armor, with worse mobility and camo rating? Not super OP, but different, and this photograph can prove it's possible/existed. 

 

I mean, its better than dreaming up japanese heavies right?


Hans, get the Luger.

Isn't this the first time it's been offered? If so, why is anyone surprised?

 

Of course they jack up the price for the first offering so they can maximize their return from the impatient collectors. Unless it is OP (which it doesn't appear to be), it will be offered again at much lower prices. Be patient and don't get your knickers in a knot.

They're making it expensive in the beginning kind of like supply and demand, but there just isn't a limited amount. If you don't want to spend 8k on it, then don't. but if you still want it but don't want to pay 8k, just wait for the next time it's on sale, it'll be cheaper.

They are genius in their tricks to get you to devalue their currency in your mind, causing an inflation with their gold with the events, jacking gold prices, then dropping back to the same cash prices for gold. 

8,000 gold?   pssssh, that's nothing after the last event.   Who didn't bat an eye at spending over 15k gold or higher at the auction?   20k for the Drac?   No problem if you got the big christmas box. 

 

Now why wouldn't you pay 8K gold for a tier VI medium?   Everyone was just paying 20K for the Drac...

WG is genius. 

 


It's a game, not a d!ck.   Don't take it so hard.

It’s going for 7k gold, not 8k, just for the record.

I'm considering it simply because it is modeled on a real tank driven by a real tank hero rather than some Brad Pitt driven POS.  I read Loza's books (Commanding the Red Army's Sherman Tanks) some time ago, and I highly recommend it if you are at all interested in the history of tank warfare

they put a 50 cal on a USSR Lend-Lease Sherman, but not the Fury. WOW what an Insult.                    :rolleyes:                                          it is kinda funny.

Dude this is Blitz. Getting panties in a wad is practically a system spec.

 

The tank has better dispersion but not 8K gold worth better. Unless you plan on driving this 200 to 1,000 battles you're throwing your money away. Scrubs will suck in it and vets already have a tank they do well in or are way past buying a tier 6. Prediction, it's a money maker because ... scrubs.

It’s not even an E8 though, it doesn’t have the HVSS suspension. And the “Easy Eight” has different engine grill style and hasn’t one Ford engine. The A2 has a twin diesel.

 (COD-R) 54.54% Winrate. Low tiers are trash, game is ruined. FML.

...when they take a tier 5 tech tree tank hurried up for lend-lease and make it a tier 6 because.... ?  

 

Oh yeah, Russian.  Vodka infusion adds one tier of power.  Or something.

Well put and and I agree. I wont be getting this tank after all I got at the auction, but the tanks like this with the legendary type camos based on real tanks are amazingly done. The IS-2 with it's legendary camo is really epic looking. I once saw a pic WG showed of the exact tank they based it on, and it is truly a striking representation of the real tank. It's great as well to read the historical accounts, especially the biographies. I have ready many fighter pilot ace's books. They are eye opening to say the least, so much to learn about combat and overcoming obstacles in life in general.

It’s a fun tank.  

   Better gun than the E8 

   Worse (stock) turret.  

 

78.79% in mine in 33 games.  

    Ace bar was higher than I had expected, took 1132 base. 

 

Whether or not it is worth the 7k gold to folks is up to them.

I think 5.5 was good for the game - But I also want my Kenny OP nerfed. 
Sorry I haven’t aced the Smasher yet - So I’m still ruining tier 6-8
