Been seriously contemplating picking up the SU 130PM, however I'm torn between it and the death from afar bundle as that has an Iron rain and Striker. I already own the Skorpion and E-25 so if I get the bundle, does anyone know how much gold I'd get back?

 

Regarding the opinions part, can I get your opinions on the SU 130, the Striker and the Iron rain (the mobility of the Iron rain looks really bad. Does it make it so some games are just torture?)

iron rain's gun can clip same tier tanks but LOVES to troll and has a long reload. it is also SUPER sow.

If you just want SU-130 PM probably best to wait until it's a DOTW/PO in a few months if Paladin + Striker are anything to go by.

That's why I didn't get the SU instantly tbf, the Paladin being a DOTW so soon after being sold full price is a very good reason to be wary.

Yep, I'd rather pay £20 for it than £35. Could either buy Striker Bundle (Unless you're like me who doesn't like to spend money) or wait until Black Friday see Bundles there, Failing that save your cash for a DOTW Sale :)

Go with bundles, the price with discount is awesome especially if you already own some tanks. I'm poor to buy tanks like that but if I would have some gold to spend, I'll go with bundles (75% off)

From what I remember, the Iron Rain's mobility is not too much worse than a standard Borsig's.

Uphill is more of a struggle, sure, but on flat ground and the like the mobility is largely unchanged.

 

In all honesty though, is that the bundle that you'd want?

If I recall, you have the other tanks from the Soviet Earthshakers bundle, so the T-103 would be at a very reduced price for you. Painbringer might not also be a bad buy, but the upfront cost is quite a bit.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

Limited by the upfront cost in general tbf, got 13.5k available, but I'm thinking getting the Iron rain and Striker plus some gold refunded isn't too bad considering that.

Fair enough.

 

I would had thought a TD/Heavy hybrid with a somewhat large gun would be up your street more. It's, surprisingly, in the same price range as well.

 

Shame I can't just lend you these tanks for you to look at. I own all of them.

How much is the earth shaker bundle? Its possible I mistook its price for a different one.

13,350.

 

Do you have the Scourge or the Kirovets? Because this bundle has the Scourge in.

I thought it was over 20k lol. Definitely mistook it for a different one. Unfortunately I own the unskinned Kirovets 1, and not the Scourge.

Still, trade-in fodder.

It's a tank where the average going price is more expensive than that entire bundle.

That is a very good point. You have made the T-103 seem very good from what I've seen of your gameplay too.

T-103 is a Heavy if played right, Unlike ISU-130, it has nice Standard Rounds and Turret may not hold off in Tier 10 Games but it has Charioteer Levels of Pen. I've seen Zenozatch make 300k+ Silver with Silver Boosters in this thing. Hull will be penned by anything tho.

Playing destroyers like the Iron Rain or SU-130 PM is a lazy man’s game. The ISU-130 is where it’s at...no pain, no gain! :deer:

I've got an ISU-122. That's put me off that tank hull pretty much forever lol.

You know, I simultaneously hate and like that tank, and I have  no idea why.

 

It's a terrible tank, and I do not do particularly well with turretless TDs in any case, but I seem to select it more often than I should.

 

I also seem to go towards the VK 168, so perhaps I'm weird.

I feel you... I love some tanks that are considered BAD, tanks like Boulder, Type 5 Heavy, Legion and Brick (even before it was buffed).
