The M4A2E4. A Tier V American Medium with a legacy of rarity. In most cases across all World of Tanks platforms, it exists as a free beta tank that is rarely seen. The only times it has been sold have been as the Ripper (Console), an RU Special (PC), and here in Blitz as a Legendary Bundle with the Panzer IV hydro and a sack full of gold and silver. In fact, on Blitz, the only tanks that I can think of as less common are the KV-220 Alpha oddities and the IS-6 Fury. I've never seen these two tanks in the 2 years I've played.


 

The tank is probably my favorite American tank at Tier V, and it has some stiff competition. The M4 is always fun to derp around in with the 105, and is very competitive with the 76mm M1A1 gun. T 14 and the T1 Heavy are decent heavies, both being excellent rammers when they get the speed. Lastly, the T 49 is a monster at tier V. The "Mini Jumbo" however, fits a niche perfect for a medium-heavy.


 

...Wolverine? Nah, this isn't Red Dawn...


 

The tank is as close as you can get to the (sadly mediocre) Sherman Jumbo at tier VI. The beta tank has great armor, DPM, and the best American Bias money can buy. The only downside(s) of the vehicle is the below-average gun handling and pen, and mediocre acceleration. If you are top tier, just bully your way through enemy tanks with less than 90mm of pen. I recommend getting this tank if it ever gets sold again, but expect this tank to be harder to get a hold of than even the T-34-85 Victory.


 

(Also, to gain +50% Freedom, equip the "Lowland Beast" camo.)


3.Whatever: Just nerf the T-54 already...

Previous Clan Leader of BDSM, waiting for the M5A1Chinese Light. Has a personal vendetta against all things T-54.

Current Premium Tanks/Reward Tanks: AC1 Sentinel, T-34-85 Victory, Tetrarch, T2 Light, M3 Light, AT 15A, Panzer IV Hydro, M4A2E4, T 14,

T7, Panzer IV H Anko, Korimorimine, BT-7A, BT-SV

Very sweet review.

 

It is a sweet tank...got my first and almost only raisin in it and set the damage record...probably a totally lucky game

 

very fun and bounces many rounds...turret is good...gun is good but you need some of the good stuff(acpr)

 

I run binocs rammer and vents...both colas and top fuel...with top fuel you can actually get moving sometimes

 

Only sherman I owned until the Ram II purchase last night


I know it is beta and pisses some dudes off but still cool to have it part of the game and on the battlefield to compete with and against.

 

enjoy

Oh you haven't been here for a while. Wargaming sold it and the Hydrostat a few months ago. Spat in the faces of all the beta testers.

 

Also, there was a "tank auction," if you will, in which you could buy the T34 Independence, Type 62, Type 59, FCM 50T, E25, T-34-85 Victory, and a whole heap of "rare" premium tanks. They also sold 95% of all the legendary camos at that time.

 

Welcome to 2017.

 

Edit: Oh the Fury too. They resold that recently.

It's a good tank, review spot on.

If you platooned with another good player,  rnggesus only knows what your win rate could be.

I got this tank as a reward for being part of the beta testing. When I saw it started being sold in the shops I got a little upset because it makes it less special than what it was.

You run the M4 with the derp gun? How's that work for you?

 

Nvm.  Works well.  I'm not sure how...

I love my Beta Tank.

I feel bad for the Beta people that lost it's "rare-coolness" but I'm glad I got to get one for my garage.

 

Also, I think you mean IS-6 Fearless, not Fury.


Today I went to the bathroom and forgot my phone.

 

There are 256 tiles in the bathroom...

Yep still salty they sold my "rare" beta tank

 

Edit: OH they could pull an IS6 fearless and Snowstorm with the M4A2E4 and pull it from all players who bought it when it was sold and then it will return to its former beta glory!

Well this is awkward.

I won one yesterday, when I went back to playing the game.
Yet I dont remember signing up for any kind of beta testing or similar thing.

It did also come with the pumpkin attachment, free.

 

What to do now, other than go back to clubbing seals?


I played TDs before it was cool. It was also never cool to begin with.
