they got me a few years ago on the golden tiger (vk45.03). I’m thinking a hard pass on Goldie Maus: vk168.01.

idk. it looks a lot like the VK100 so it may be pretty competitive. Then again, AMX 30 prototype is faster, one tier higher, and cheaper...

"HULK SMASH[er]!!!"

^ Gotta derp around in Tier 7 before the inevitable nerf! ^

Just another demo account, nothing to see here

It is not the price itself that bothers me, but rather the fact that in 8 months it will be sold for half of that gold...

The price is the price (for now). I was touting the idea of more premiums on sale regularly because I want more variety in game. I think w a clever mix of ranks regularly available, some with exclusivity and obviously new releases that wg could make more money. Clever is a bridge too far. 

 

Charge what you like  if you think you can get it. I just won’t pay the premium for a newly released premium. I don’t even like to buy new cars. 

 

I like the super heavy Germans but I guess I have plenty of premium tanks, I can’t imagine the play style will differ much from the 168.01 to the vk 100. Plus much like the golden tiger: there likely to be some drop off. I may get a 168 two years from now if the game survives avatars and fantasy boosters.

The VK 168.01 sucks hard.To me easier cupola to pen and the lower glacis part is just as easy to pen.

You're better off financially, stat-wise, and credit-wise with an enriched VK. 100.01 P over this expensive knock-off. Hmmm, i guess i shouldn't be upset about a premium actually being worse than its tech-tree counterpart for a change. :teethhappy:

The 45.03 is a good tank.

I've yet to see any of them in game but what sticks out to me, at least on paper, is an inferior tank by comparison to the VK 100.1.  Aim time & repair costs seem to be the only two improvements. Everything else seems to be the same or worse.

I would say to just get the original and enrich it, but enriching costs too much and I wouldn't be surprised if Wargaming beats it to death with the nerf bat in a couple patches to sell more vk 168s in the future.

It is the new model. 

Premium tanks are sold at a premium, then few months later they are either sold bundled up for the same price or reduced price, and then it goes down every iteration. If u really want it now you fork in the heavy price.

 

it has been like this for nearly 2 years now. I don’t see anything wrong with it.

 

i have bought lekpz and amx13 at the higher price. I hit thousands of battles with them. Worth it.

i am still waiting for the right tier 10 premium to come at the right price. I will wait some more.

It is basically a credit earner and that is it.

The hull on the 100 is a lot stronger but the turret on the 168 is a lot stronger (frontally).  The back of 100 is stronger than 168 both in turret and hull.

Also, why didn't they make the 168 a tech tree tank? It makes much more sense. They should switch them.

Am I looking at Blitzhangar incorrectly? Update 6.2 shows the VK168 is getting an armor nerf. The spaced armor side skirts look lighter when I move the slider.

It appears that the lower spaced armor side skirt decreases from 76mm to 40mm and the front and rear spaced armor skirt decreases from 120mm to 60mm. I know WG can nerf any tank, any time, but I’ve never seen a premium nerfed so soon after its initial release. Does that mean they sold it knowing it’s getting nerfed?
