I picked up the Lorraine and the FV201 after spending about $16 on some of the bundles, mostly because it's nice to be a ridiculous wallet warrior.  I'm masterly debating with myself over what to spend the coupons on though.  The Skorpion is one of the biggest holes in my garage, but I've spent all the money I'm spending on black friday so that's not gonna happen.  I've got 320, I'm debating over more premium time or some research certs......

I just killed a Skorpion  1vs1 with my T26E5.   If he knew how terrible I am at this game, he would have demanded a $400 refund. Haha.       

 

Seriously though, I could pen that thing everywhere.    I was running from rock to rock so he missed me a few times but still.    Thats a lot of $$ for a tank that can't block shells.

I believe he was referring to the T-34-3 comparing it to the T-34-2.

I played a game against a 252U and had a load of difficulty penning him. I had 7k gold saved up so I decided to get one and try it out and on the recommendation of this thread, I picked up the Pz IV S as well. That left me with 130 coupons. A Tier X coupon costs 85 and a Tier IX is 30...I was 5 coupons short. The big spender that I am, I decided to blow $1.99 on the 2xBlack Box deal that also gave me the 5 coupons I wanted to get the Tier IX and X coupons. The 2 black boxes I opened yielded 2 more level I black boxes, 1 level III black box. Once all Black Boxes were opened everything yielded 2300 gold, about 15000 free xp and a bunch of boosters. Despite this thread saying Black Boxes are not with it, I took out quite a haul. Not saying everyone will have similar luck but for $1.99 I got much more than if I purchased the $4.99 bundle "The Choice of Champions" that this thread recommends.

The strength isn’t in the armor. It’s in the gun, turret and mobility. It’s a low floor, high ceiling tank. Bad player struggle in it, but good players can crush people.

Gotcha.  I'm lucky he didn't hit me then.   

I picked the T26 over the 252U, even though i prefer Russian tanks to American ones.    I wanted something with a good ROF that could move around a little bit.     I drive it like a medium and I've started to do pretty well in it by my standards.  When I'm with a clan mate I really feel confident in it.        I haven't had terribly much trouble against the 252, because most of their drivers don't fight with them hull down.  So I put rounds through that front lower plate.       If they hit you though 

.... about twice the damage of the T26.    

 

Still after reading these forums I feel like I got the wrong tank.         I'm SLOWLY getting better though and I feel like I can make the T26 work.      I love the ROF and the accuracy of the gun.   Its mobile for a "heavy" too.         Seems like its a pretty good tank.    If I was a pretty good player...lol.    

 

I got the PZIV S too and I LOVE it.   The only problem is when it gets up tiered it is heavily over matched.   Going up against Annihilators, IS tanks, Tiger II isn't much fun.       But its still a great pick IMO. It's been getting me 50k a game and I'm a bad player.    I love it for the same reason I love the T26E5. Not a thumper, but   It has an accurate, fast firing gun that pens things as long as you aren't bottom tier.  

 

I got that T62 tank from the event tickets too but I haven't used it.      I'm not good with light tanks past the Lepard.

He may have gotten it before for a cheaper price. And I don’t mind the expensive price they ask for it, as it has the best gun at tier 8.

will say black friday for me was a huge let down, such a limited choice of tanks

Purposely hoarded my BP gold, now I can get the Tie Fighter (Pz IV S). I like how the BPs not only give you all those extra goodies, they give you gold as well.

 

No, I’m not defending German technical superiority, I’m stating the ****ing obvious!

Atleast could they tone down the price to like 90 percent for the tanks because it takes a long time to watch the adds needed for the gold to buy them tanks. I only got the type 64 and I only have 200 something gold left. I want the tanks to be in the hundreds, not thousands, because they are hard to get.

do you really want everyone in the game getting their hands on a new tank for practically nothing? It would break the MM. the prices are fine as it is. Besides, you got a Type 64. That’s pretty good.

I know, but I have to sit there waiting for ads to appear to get gold... took awhile to scrape all me gold together

There is another option, and the other option is the one WG wants you to take.  That option is this:  spend money.
