Just saw the M4-A2 Loza appear in the shop for a few minutes and then disappear.  It was up for 8000 gold.

 

Isn't this the Russian Easy 8 Sherman, but slower and with a 75mm gun?

 

Seems expensive to me if it is going to come to Blitz.

8000 gold with all 9 slots. For a tier6 Sherman!!!!!!!

It's a SHERMAN!!!!! 

They're basically charging 8k gold for a poxy camo.

The AMX 30 première Protoype looks like an incredibly fun tank. In which I would suck incredibly hard :D 

 

14k gold is a lot, but for people who really want it, if you sell some tanks after 5.5 you will be able to get it!

You'll never (or probably never) get it any cheaper. The most WG have ever discounted is 40%, they rarely go above 25%. So if you fancy one, now is the time.

I think I'm going to keep my gold for another winter fair :) 

 

But it will suck again like last year probably...

30% on... what? Seems like a simple marketing trick to me. They never sell any tank without "reduction" :trollface:

DumbApe, I’ve got a 13yr old VW Touran, 1 careful owner, some service history, yours for a mere £10k...

It’s a bargain, it’s 50% off!

Sorry Mjr_Ezy you missed your chance - I just bought an 18yo one with plenty of authentic artisan rust throughout the sills and subframe. It was a real bargain too at £19,999.  I bought it immediately I heard the special knocking noise at the bottom end and saw the sawdust in the gearbox oil. It’ll be a great investment for my portfolio.  Got to rush as I got bloke coming round with some new clothes an emperor didn’t nab

Erhhh ... I had a real Rat bike back in the 80's even down to the hammerite paint ... FJ engine in it though with 'tweaked' suspension (different oil and progressive springs).  I also have a perchance for Q cars, but that got very expensive indeed. 

 

In other news ... 

 

The AMX 30 1er is a bloody good tank fellas - even in my fat fingers. It gets around the maps really well and the gun is a peach - accurate with a reasonable reload time and healthy alpha makes a really fun to play in support especially when you reposition to force split fire. Turret is made out of rubber too bouncing a lot of shots it has no right to shrug off.  I just looked in detail at an Replay through Map inspector and it drew 6 bounces in the game. (https://wotinspector...5_549348885_339

 

Glad I bought it already... No seriously I am ... Look stop laughing at the back I mean it - its making me not look like a total loser...  Vive La France!

my weakness is 80s vw's. I own a mk2 golf gti, and a gt2 scirocco......and the blighters bleed me dry.... but I wouldn't part with my Germanic gems.

 

In other news..... l wonder how and why that Sherman Loza showed up for a few minutes, and if anyone bought it?

I liked the original Golf GTI, but it was too small for me as I am a rather large Ape and I felt like I was wearing a jacket.  Had a few Beemers though (Cars and Bikes) and a Quatro in my time, but the car bug can be expensive.  

 

The Loza was there for about 5mins on my screen, so long enough for someone to click on, but went I went to look closer it'd disappeared.  I am really not sure if I even would pay that much for a tier 6.  Don't think it'll be as good as the Pz IVS and its more money.  I have the E8 and that seems to be faster and better gunned.

As far as cars I went from large underpowered mushy cars down to tiny punchy cars and I tend to be happy.

 

i guess I’m the same for tanks.

 

wondering if I should get the amx30. I’m really pinching my forearm right now.

I can’t recall ever seeing one of these before the last few days so I had no expectations.  Now obviously I haven’t played it much, but it am doing well in it.  Into the high 2 and mid 3k’s in these games already.... it is a lot for fun to play and in the hands of a better player than me would carry on a lot of maps.

 

The 10’ degrees of depression and  speed are delivering for me. Aim time is short and snaps hit with regularity.  Hull  is paper thin though.  

 

In my last game of yesterday this thing CoD’d a CDC while dodging fire from 2 others. Of course I died, but the survivors of this melee were chopped down in a couple of shots for a solid win.  This is a T9 medium outmanoeuvring a CDC fellas!

 

So to be clear this is a rubbish tank, hugely underpowered and a terrible drive ... only a real dummy would clog up their garage with this. To be clear NO-ONE should buy it -  I’ll carry that burden for you all so you are not forced to suffer:unsure:
