Northern Wind BP Megathread

Recommended Posts

I found the CV90 Mk IV is really beastly in PvE. Basically, K21 autocannon with Hunter ATGMs on a decent tier 8 chassis.

The question is are any of the other CV90 tanks worth getting during this BP?

Ghost is close competitor to ZTQ, I consider that the ZTQ is simply better. (and Ghost after final upgrade becomes another improved variant of Anders)

Upgraded high-RoF 5-shell CV90-105 provides identical "feel" to 4-shell ready-rack Stingray 2, but ready-rack makes everything simpler. 

Upgraded CV 90 MK4 is combo of autocannon and ATGM which can be fired in pair. Separately looking -- they are average, it is opportunity to use both of them plus infantry makes real difference.

Concluding, each of these CV vehicle is sort of capable and optional thing in same time.

The Tier 9 Ghost is good (keep the base gun, the "upgrade" isn't worth it because it nerfs the ammo).  It's comparable to a ZTQ, though, so since you already have that you don't really need the Ghost.  It's pretty easy to get, though - it should only cost around 22.5k to 25k BC if you only buy "rare" or better offers - so you might as well get it unless doing so would prevent you from getting to level 30.  Because...

The Tier 8 Mk.IV is very good.  If Terminators didn't exist, it might be the most OP vehicle at Tier 8.  It's a least on par with the Marder 2 overall, but plays differently because it has missiles but no PELE.  I haven't played my STRV much yet, but I've played it enough to think that the Mk.IV is the overall best vehicle from this BP.  It has excellent vision and good camo, excellent firepower, and excellent maneuverability.  The only thing it doesn't have is armor, which makes sense because it's an AFV.  It's one of those vehicles that seems purpose-built for Juan Carlos... he gives it another 5% camo and a huge VR boost.  Erin is overkill on the camo.

The Tier 7 TML is good, but suffers from being Tier 7 (matchmaker hates you in PvE) and being very close capability-wise with the Stingray 2.  If you have a Premium Stingray 2 (such as the Black Eagle), then you have very little need for the TML.  But if you only have the progression Stingray 2, then the TML is essentially a premium version of it and is probably worth having.  The reality, though, is that the TML is just a bonus on your way to the Mk.IV which is what you really want.

It's not a CV90, but the STRV is pretty comparable to the Object 195, maybe a little better.  I feel like its armor is better, and while I don't like its 40mm as much as the Griffin's 50mm, the triple-shot is very useful while waiting for the main gun to reload.  And since there's no reload on the 40mm, it's more consistent than the Object 195's 30mm AC clip.

I bought Battle Path Access in the game using 2999 Gold. When I buy Battle Path Bundle: Battle Coins for money in the store will I get 50,000 Coins? Will I get back 2999 Gold? What will happen?

You aren't supposed to buy access twice, though they don't prevent you from doing so, so I don't know for sure what would happen.  My guess would be that you'd get the 50k Battle Coins but would not get a refund on your original 2999 Gold purchase.

IIRC, they have held a sale on BC towards the end of the previous BPs..... although previous performance is no guarantee of the future.  I also haven't seen a BC bonus event during this BP (was holding on to my boosts to stack the effects)... so it's probably worth waiting till we are closer to the end to decide on coin purchases, unless there is something in the shop that you need to buy urgently.

SS said that the current BC sale is the last one of this BP.  Buy now or miss out.

There might still be a BC bonus event... or there might not.  If you're close to some goal, I wouldn't risk waiting for an event.  I'd spend the boosters and get it done while you still have time.

Turns out they've explicitly stated that you will get a 2999 gold refund.  Yay!

Is there a list of all tanks i can draw in NW shop?

Try this table. It might not be complete or accurate because it's simply what people reported to have seen, but it should be a good enough reference.
