As you may know the WGL Grand Finals will take place in Warsaw, Poland at 8 and 9 of April.
On the WoT’s Portal, it says the entrance is completely free but those who buy VIP tickets will be getting a special tank “that has not been revealed yet“! Well… this is such a “super secret” that you just need to click on that big orange button that says in caps-lock “BUY A VIP TICKET!”
So what In-Game goodies we get if we purchase it…
3 Premium Tanks: Excelsior, IS-3A and… Oh! Look at that! The M 41 90.
The leKpz M 41 90 mm is a tier 8 Light Tank. A German variant of the M41A1 Walker Bulldog light tank modernization. The main change was the replacement of the 76mm M32 gun that was re-bored to 90mm and was made 425mm shorter.
It most likely will be sold on the premium store too and probably with an ugly WGL camo that will make people not want to buy it, I sincerely hope they don’t repeat the same mistake as last year.
Last year’s WGL tank was pretty decent but no one wanted to look like an advert pariah, the community even made the effort to create mods that remove the unwanted “camo”.

Actually, they switched the M41 90mm to tier 8 in the second iteration of 9.14 (and the actual release). They adjusted the hitpoints and reload, but otherwise, it’s pretty much the same as before. Not as big of a fan now, but at least the DPM is nice.
Oh, and I hope they make it available (free of a bundle) on NA 😛
Can you fish around for confirmation on if it’s going to be sold, Rita? I really want to know if I’ll be able to pick it up normally, or if I’m going to need to contact Polish friends to see if any of them want to attend in my place…
Hello, its weekend so most WG lads are away from office/PC with their families, will try to poke a someone but cant promise anything until next week.
Yeah, no hurries. The event is… late April? Plenty of time left.
Thanks for understanding. :3
do you really HAVE to attend? i thought just buy a ticket and doesn’t matter if you are a no-show..
Almost bought a ticket just now lol
I believe you need to attend, but its mos likely they will be selling it as well so dont stress.
I believe they’ll end up selling them as they did last time, but I want confirmation just to be sure. Thankfully I actually know people in Poland and I’m sure they would be willing to attend in my place 😛
Actually, since the VIP package is just over 60 euros if I’m not mistaken, as a premium tank package the price is quite good.
You get the “super secret tank”for just over 10 euro, which is not a lot for a tier 8 tank.
Well, you do have to travel to Warsaw to attend the event if you don’t live anywhere near it, which bumps the price up (to a LOT if you don’t even live in Poland).
Do you think? I’d imagine you just got the promo codes in your mail and just not go there :P.
Ah, you’re right. I just read the part about having to validate your ticket at the event…
Also dont forget you get the VIP space during the event. The tanks are kind of a free bonus. And even if you dont plan on going it’s still a good value for money.
Edit : nevermind you gotta be there. So double the price at least for a bad tier t, a regular tier 8 and a light tank (and this class is rather bad currently). And considering WGL is just watching 14 people spamming gold at each other from their T54LW during a day… Well you can get better things from that money.
Even if I lived an hour away I would not go, it would have to be like 15 minutes so I could drive validate my ticket and then leave to go home.
Actually, like someone else mentioned, you actually have to go to get the other benefits…
Wait…what? Wasn’t the M 41 90 supposed to be a tier 7? When did it become tier 8?
It got uptiered.
Yeah but I don’t see any changes in stats…why is it a tier 8? What changed?
Hopefully you can get it without that holiday camo ad… I specifically didn’t but the 1357 because of that camo.
Same.. and asked for people to not waste their money and don’t gift it to me, so the trolls gave me like 5 of them.
AMX 13 57F is still a really nice LT. If you just ignore the ugly paintjob (which gives you permanent camo bonus on all maps anyway) you can have a blast driving it.
Any trolls give you world of warplanes premiums like they did to Jingles?
Does the USA get this or is it just europe
I attended previous two WG Finals events, and I think ill pass on this one. Excelsior itself isnt good enough to make me sit in these ridiculous lines for 3 hours straight, especially since i already have it, and I’m not planning to buy a VIP ticket either (although price-to-content ratio is quite good).
I wonder if the gifts even works on the NA server since they aren’t advertising it here at all.
This guy here did a “branding remove” skin for the amx.
but im not sure if its working with version 9.14
Yah Milkyman does a good job with on skins.
A thought occurred to me. The name of the tank as listed is simply ‘M 41 90’. Now, that’s obviously shortened from ‘LeKpz M 41 90 mm’… but still, no ‘GF’ tag in the name. The 13 57 GF still has the ‘F’ in it’s name even when shortened.
So, just speculating here, but this looks like an indication that we won’t get a reskinned version this time. Cross your fingers that I’m right, lads and ladies.
…also don’t come after me with pitchforks and torches if I’m wrong, please?
Give me a three minutes headstart, okay?
Dont worry, RSR on WordPress been far more friendly. People are still very free to give their opinions even when they are in disagreement with me, I can take it, respect that and like to read different points of view but I kept away the worst trolls that bring nothing constructive to the comment section. 😛
Hi Renarde Martel!

If they sell it without the stupid promotional camo I’ll certainly consider buying it.
I buy a ticket, but probably participate in the April 8th., I’ll get premium tanks ?
