This April we are making dreams come true. What would you say to having an epically rare, absolutely legendary tank put in the Premium Shop? You’re probably now thinking: “you’re joking, right?”
Are we really?
There’s only one way to find out!
The following offer will be available in the Premium Shop from 1 April at 09:55 until 2 April at 09:55 CEST (UTC +2).
I Always Wanted You!
This package will set you up for months to come, no doubt. How? By the power of gold, of course! Cash in the bedazzling amount of 30,500 pieces and roll out like a king! That’s more than enough to open the doors to all sorts of Premium content and keep them wide open for a very long time.
Oh yeah, we almost forgot: if you go for this package, you will get the Tier III German light tank, Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. J, and a garage slot as a free gift. No biggie.
"There is no end to the dinging, regardless of which way the shells fly“
Released in EU as an exclusive prize for stage activities during gamescom in 2012, the Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. J has been a persistent dream of many tank collectors ever since. This little buggy-like tank has never made an appearance since then, which makes it one of the rarest vehicles you can meet in World of Tanks. Don’t be fooled by its small size and innocent looks, though – those who underestimate it, usually end up cursing at their monitors and raising their fists towards the skies in anguish.
If you wanted to describe the tank in just one word, “extreme” would be the closest one to grasp its nature. The Pz. II J is indeed an embodiment of polar opposites that tend to bounce from one extreme to another: it’s a small and compact light tank, yet it’s slower and more cumbersome than a lot of heavies out there; its armour can compete even with some Tier V tanks, yet its armament is a mere Tier I machine gun; when in a Tier III battle, it can almost bend time and space to its will, yet when placed in a Tier IV match, it may be borderline insignificant.
Despite its chaotic nature – and possible insane ammo resupply bills – most of the lucky few who managed to secure this gem in their garages would never trade their “J-Power” for anything else. Sure, you may end up pretty much as just a glorified placeholder in a Tier IV match, or be forced to spend literally tens of thousands of credits on APCR shells in order to be able to deal any damage at all. Yet the feeling of driving this demi-god of a tank when assigned to a Tier III battle is like nothing you have ever experienced in the game. There are machines you can either love or hate, but in the case of the Pz.Kpfw. II J, you can only either love hating or hate loving it.
Don’t forget that these offers are just a sample of those that are available. Visit the Premium Shop to find the extensive list of everything you can get!
Roll out, Commanders!
