These will be the tanks for the 2018 Halloween event. There is a slight chance you can get both.

Both tanks look "nice" gameplay style.

Grave digger has trollish frontal armor, 6 shot clip with a variant of 6lber with 170ish pen and 90 alpha (230mm apcr pen).

Tankestein can either use the 130mm from su100y or the 105mm from t29\32.

I like the Tankestein more because of the alpha but the grave digger looks fun with the autoloader. Obviously I will try to get both. Already have 2k gold from missions and crates.

Which one will you go for?

Gravedigger seems to have a nice armor profile, reminds me a lot of the Helsing (the shape of the tank) and it has some nice armor values. 

 

A 6 shot autoloader seems fun to me. And the reloadtime isn't too bad either. I will certainly go for the Gravedigger, if i'm capable to get if of course. I still have 18k gold so if it's still out of reach at the end of the event I'll gold it if it's less then let's say 5000 gold. 

 

Wondering also about the Scavenger, it seems to have some special gun as well with the big alpha, with pretty bad pen and a long reload time.

Looks pretty good as a side scrapper as well. 80mm side armor + 45mm skirt.

Tankenstein is good gun wise but a very slow lumbering hunk

Ours is not to reason why, ours is just to kill, kill kill

War is hell...maybe

I thought it was gravedigger and the other is called scavenger?

According to the ingame news, the Scavenger will be easy to pick up (heard something about winning 50 battles during the event?) while you will have to choose between grinding the Gravedigger and the Tankenstein - might be possible to get them both though.

yeh, just looked it up, scavenger is a tier5 and as you say it's 50 battles and its yours. I'm surprised they've thrown tankenstein back out there, it's been available on a couple of occasions, really can't see anyone going down that route.

Another question...is the wasteland map a permanent fixture or just for the event?.

Where did you get this info?

 

According to WOTB POST Discord channel the T5 Scavenger will need just 50 battles to get.

Tankestein and Gravedigger are the ones that are for the real event. As far as I see, the Tankestein path has only free exp whereas the Gravedigger one has boosters. According to them both can be ground if you are persistent enough.

75 tons, 36kph speed and seems like it has better HP/Ton than the Tiger 1. The size is also huge 7.70m×4.59m×3.12m vs Tiger 1 5.88m×3.21m×2.48m

I think it will be a event-only map. On Facebook WG said something in that direction.
