      On the Somua has 3.75s intra-mag reload time which is one second slower than the 50 100, while here in these stats it has 2.25 seconds which is half a second FASTER than the AMX 50 100. I have no clue what is right, but if the latter is, the Somua will be much better than the 50 100. Would again be a premium tank that is better than the comparable regular peer. I don’t like this development, smells like low-key P2W.

    Look quite good, it’s nice to see it have 5 shell and not 6 so it’s a little bit diffrent form the AMX 50 100 yet have quite the same playstyle.

      As long as people keep buying all the stuff that WG is releasing, the stuff will come. THAT is the problem. As soon as they announced the enhanced equipment, I stopped paying money for the game (except one package of gold and credits, shame on me). Everyone is raging on the internet WG is milking and stuff. But it’s not only WGs fault.

  2. davidblader says:

    oh no, STG Guard just got released, and now another tier 8 premium? how stupid are they actually?
    Like the user on QB’s STG video said in the top comments: ”they are just milking the game now until it dies´╗┐”

    1. Ion7 says:

      Nobody wants or needs the STG, and this tank should replace the 50t in the shop and tech tree, but what won’t. I’m from na and I am not fooled by WG’s tricks…but I want a wz120 1g ft and they won’t sell it yet, da faqu?

    Looks like a watered down Lorraine and 50100 hybrid. Well at least we finally get a premium heavy that plays a lot like the tier 9 and 10 instead of the liberte which plays more like an assault heavy.

    At least it is also not russian

    1. Renarde_Martel says:

      Well, we were supposed to get some non-autoloader French heavies, but I guess that idea got shelved. AMX M4 49 would make much more sense if we’d actually gotten AMX M4 48 and AMX M4 50.

  4. At first I was amazed by armor of this tank but then I checked 3D model. When well angled which is possible due to the amazing -10 degrees gun depression, hull of this tank can bounce most T8 shells. But when you look closer at the turret you will see that only small part of the ring is 140mm, the rest is 70-90mm. For me it’s not worth to trade agility of Lorraine for that unreliable armor of Somua. 2 degrees more gun depression and 1 bullet in the clip won’t make it for that sluggish 12,5 hp/t. But… it still can be good heavy for personal missions. Maybe two years ago it would be OP like hell, but in times when every single premium tank is better than previous one this one is just decent. If WG decide to give entire turret 140mm of armor or increase engine power to something like 900hp this tank will be killer.

    -10 degrees of gun depression becoming standard as well as high penetration (but all FR has this very same number). Other than that its OK premium I would say – not Liberte at least. Accuracy is reasonably bad imho.

  6. torturebear says:

    Well… a nice thing to buy. Actually a better version of the 50 100. Not as fast and less p/w ratio. But friggin 10 degrees of gun depression and some armor.
    Faster reload and less reload time between shells. This thing might be pretty cool.

    A very nice thing would be if they at least offer the modules on the original AMX 50 100 – like you can make the tank a version of this by researching added modules like a new turret (Somua Turret V. 1.5 or so… ) and another hull implacement for more armor.

    Or as usual make it at least a researchable line.

    They just don’t even try anymore…. The game is unplayable now…I have unlocked tier 8s but I don’t even dare to take them into battle stock…..I think 9.20 is the beginning of the end for wot! Still it will become an example to avoid for future games….

        I wouldn’t call wot in this state exactly alive…broken mm check, tides of premiums check , hordes of bots check , imbalanced teams check , broken tanks check. So yeah I wouldn’t call the game healthy….. Lots of peiple I know stoped playing exactly for those reasons! Now you can have 100 people playing a game investing 10$ or 10 people investing 100$. Most free to play players have abandoned the game and the majority of the remaining ones are wg’s moneyslaves! Just queue for a tier 8 battle and count the tech tree tanks…13-14 out of 15 will be premiums…..

      2. There is a difference between alive and healthy.

        Concurrent user numbers are still plenty high enough, only the NA region seems to have problems with that. Most of the problems you are mentioning have already been problems for a very, very long time now, so that’s not really a difference.

        And if your conclusion about free2play players making room for moneyslaves is correct, that would only mean income is increasing for the game…

        In the end, without any real numbers and data, both of our viewpoints are pure conjecture and guesswork. The only number we have is a guesstimate of concurrent only players and those seem decent enough still.

      1. FCM says:

        simply because WoT doesnt have any real competition gameplay wise…
        ofc there is other Tank games, but it would be the same as comparing 2 car games, one wich is realistic, the other where you blow the city up…

  8. SCARed says:

    Looks kinda interesting. One more degree of gun depression (AMX was buffed with 9.20 to -9) and way faster intra-clip.

    Being not able to clip tier 8 HTs is a disadvantage, but okay.

    And this thing has enough pen to face the normal MM nowadays.

  9. Pcosa says:

    I am imagining my 6 years ago still trying the game so playing for free. Gold ammo was for real money. And then the grind IS3 with 122mm with 175mm pen. It was pain but doable. I still play WoT. But I seriously feel sorry for newbies nowadays who have to face tier 8 Defenders, Liberte, Scorps… I have 2 of them myself…

    PAY me the fucking money all you dumb cunts
    pay me the money
    just pay the money
    money money money
    more money
    yummy money
    ahh the money

    What about the Game?

  11. Nameless says:

    Inb4 50 100 is budget Somua xd
    Keep up the good work, WG! You really outdo yourselves with these new premiums. The STG? Oh my, such a good prem. Not OP at all. Chrysler K? Good tank. Also balanced compared to these pesky, non-premium, utterly unbalanced tanks. Like, who doesn’t drive a premium tank these days? Oh, wait, imma tell ya, no one!
    *cough cough cough*

  12. Anonymous says:

    Tier 8 is broken with the new matchmaking system for the NA server, so what’s the big fuss. And why we are on that topic, to much fuss over the Chrysler… the tank is NOT OP, and many pitched a big fit over nothing!

    1. Draklorm says:

      Exactly what tiger 2 does against 50 100 dude, except taking one shell less in exchange. Don’t compare shit to tiger 2 man, compared to that piece of crap everything is OP…

  13. dino7777 says:

    The Somua is “in the game” since ages.
    It was introduced far more than a year ago or even two.
    I.e. the tank is in the game files, but not available except 4 some super testers.

    Therefore I don’t get what is the news?!??
    There is nothing new about that tank being in the game!!?!?

    1. Draklorm says:

      The t34-3 buff is coming, dude. It was announced around a month ago, along with the buffs we just got in 9.20. I think it is safe to assume it comes with the British buffs/changes in 9.21, until we hear otherwise.
      Patience man, patience. WG likes to draw out the implementation of vehicle changes for some reason. If the buff doesn’t happen till Christmas, you can probably start crying.

  14. Wot Gamer says:

    Despite all the op tier 8 prems, I am still managing to grind my regular tier 8s … funny thing is that the same ppl complaining about op tier 8 prems probably complain about being constantly up in tier X matches due to the new MM rules. That being said, I’d rather have premium tier 8 French and U.S. TDs instead of a 2nd French heavy.

  15. Anonymous says:

    I’m not even gonna start on that “oh look yet another t8 premium”, not gonna discuss “it’s kinda op kinda pay2win” or “it’s not op with the new MM” blahblahblah. Let’s just slide with the whole adding t8 premium tanks into the game thingy. Still, there is a problem, can we have something different or missing? Like, I don’t know, t8 US TD or t8 british heavy. WG is not even trying, it’s just existing tank with slightly modified stats and models after another.
