They f****ng did it - "New" T8 Prem, the Awfulpanther

95 posts in this topic

In the tradition of monetizing the hell out of old tanks that went kaput, WG has announced in its FB page the arrival of two new prems... one of which is our old friend, the Awfulpanther - rebirthed as a T8 prem. Stats are below:

Have fun using that 135 damage pea shooter vs T10s.

For reference, here is the other T8 prem they are introducting

At this rate, I would expect to see a pre-nerf version of the ELC AMX bis at tier 6 as a premium. Given there were 90mm variants in the projects, there are certainly options which would allow them to without duplicating a tank.

2km DPM ain't bad for a current T8 light, really, it's pretty much middle of the line. The penetration is absolute boss as well. This could actually be a good sniping light. Question is, how does the camo hold up? Right now, it would compare to the M41 GF, which has abysmal camo. If this tank has similar camo, I would already deem it superior.

ELC Even looks delicious. Its all around butt is what T49 loves the most. On more serious note ELC E isn't OP compared to Bat 12t?

I guess WGs thinking is that the lower hp/ton ratio, longer clip reload and intraclip balances out the better alpha/clip damage and viewrange. Funny that it has more damage in a clip than the 13 90 though.

inb4 deathstar is also turned into tier 8 prem with slightly nerfed mobility and gun handling. :v

yeah, cuz you want to use 75mm HE on tier 9s and 10s.

What this might suggest is that WG may actually be considering a buff to the regular light tanks in light of just how much better the premium lights are.

AFK panzer looks cool, and kind a interesting also. Just not sure if accuracy, pen and dpm are enough to make tank competitive with that alpha...just wish it would have a bit more DPM, could even do with less alpha. Give it like 115 alpha and 2,5s reload :D

Not to mention a higher VR...

How desperate are they to milk the population?

With 231 pen, the AwfulP has more pen than the T-100LT (230).

AFK panther might not be great but it should be quite fucken fun to play.

0.30 accuracy + 1.5 sec aim time + 0.04 turret bloom + 1260 m/s velocity + very high pen for LT (no gold tho). Thats gun will be one of the most reliable guns in the entire game, there arent very many guns that combines amazing accuracy with great bloom, very good aiming time and shell velocity together. And ofc the ram memes.

Its effectively like old AFK panther that trades some DPM for better gun stats, that has full gold loadout for same price as standard ammo and 150 more HP. And it makes money.

I would really love to buy it tbh

Why can't whoever balanced this balance the rest of the lights?

Yea, the AFK panther looks pretty well balanced.

The ELC EVEN seems to be too good though unless it has really absolutely horrible soft stats. Its like the old AMX 13 90 that has 1 less shell but better mm, better mobility, smaller size (this thing is about as big as the m56 scorpion...) better accuracy, faster intra reload, better aiming time and -9 depression...
