Title

 

Also available for 20 bucks with the legendary Calvary camo, 9 equipment slots, and the Night Hunter legendary avatar.

 

My thoughts are that this kinda devalues the tank, like by a lot. How can you justify selling it for MORE later? I honestly think they should have sold it for 25 bucks and 30 bucks for all of the extra stuff.

 

That said, it's obviously not the best tank at Tier 9. It's basically a worse E75 with a higher alpha gun.

Been saying it since i bought and even sold it. It needs to be buffed. Hell put it at tier 10 so it can be or something. It's a bad MBT which makes me sad and pissed

I was looking at either the kpf 70 or the M26E5.  I thought about it for a minute [not something I usually do] and figured the 70 was probably pretty good for tier 9 with it's sweet autoloader, but it'll see more tier X games than tier 9, and it's armor basically doesn't exist against tier X tanks, it's easy enough to pen with most tier 9 tanks.  So I ended up getting the M26E5 because I figured it wouldn't be low tier near as often and also one unexpectedly kicked my butt the other day which makes me want it.

 

If a person feels powerless or insignificant in their life, the easiest way to achieve power is to make other people angry; every internet troll has known this since 1993 and every toddler has known it since the dawn of time.

Who told you it was a autoloader? As it's not

HAHAHI  I got it confused with whatever that premium tier 9 autoloader is....K 91 I think....so my decision making process was obviously flawed.  I sure hope I like the E5...

Personally I think that this is a way to offer an inexpensive premium that will at some point in the future probably shoot missiles...

I doubt they would do that but one can dream they would buff a turd.

Don’t tease me. This is my fave tank in real life, I’d love to see it perform similar to its intended specification. The MBT-70 had the 152 mm gun/launcher that shot Shillelagh missiles. The Kpz 70 version was spec’d with a 120 mm standard gun.

It’s a decent tier 9 heavy with a unique playstyle. If you go into it not expecting an OP tank, it’s totally worth $15.

Sell it for gold and I’ll consider it.  For cash?  No thanks.

I got it during the event and it was mediocre then. Then they buffed something and it became less mediocre. With the missiles coming, I can see this eventually getting a 2nd gun option.....

I bought it. Only played 10 games but I like the play style and I’m glad I got it. Alpha makes it a great peak a boom tank, great turret, and very nice mobility. Long reload makes it feel a bit like a t30 to me, another tank with bad hull armor, but great alpha. Gun depression isn’t nearly as good as the 30 but the turret is much better, and mobility is vastly superior. It’s a pretty unique feeling tank which is why I like it. Hard to truly compare it to anything. However, it’s very bad against multiple enemies since it has such a long reload, so a 1v3 will be very difficult with this tank.

I bought a while back and I enjoy it a lot. I took my cue from a very good player, Stomper Jeep, and he recommended it. It can be a difficult tank to do well in. I try to be sure I’m not isolated and act as a +1 type tank due to the huge reload time. The single shot hits of 500+ though really get an opponent’s attention :).

Luckily for me, mine was $20. Bought it last year at gold fair. Hopefully they bring back real cheap gold voxes


RNG is rigged !

Think this is indicative of a general resale shift in strategy by WG. Before, the event tanks like the Halloween vehicles, IS3-D, or Glacial/Blaze remained expensive buys for a couple sale or crate cycles after their events. But now we've seen Kpf, 44-100, Goose tanks, the FV, etc pop up later at a discounted rate. It's like they are devalued in WG's eyes due to being event freebies.

Or they are just trying to get players to spend all of their gold before releasing something amazing at the end of the month.  Players will really want whatever is coming and they'll just go buy more gold. It's a win-win for WG.
