I have been waiting and watch for the base package this week and have also been in hope of more feedback and opinions on its worth. Neither general chat or tank discussions have provided any real substance.

So one last plea for some dirt, views, and overall worth of it would be welcomed.

Thanks in advance!

It may or may not be a good tank,   but arty and light week + x2 silver at T10 says don't  bother.

World of tanks Auto lock edition,  because aiming shouldn't be a skill.

Ok then, here's my mini review of the tank. Stats can be looked up, so I will only focus on the "feel" of the tank.

 

Gun

Phenomenal alpha of 520, nice DPM and very good gun handling for the caliber, make this TD a real joy to use. Slapping tier 10's for 1/4 of their health every ~11 seconds is very enjoyable. Turret does not rotate fully, but a 180 degree traverse is very generous and makes the tank versatile.

 

Mobility

Tank is very agile and can get to early positions without a problem. Power to weight ratio isn't great and it will slow down up hills, but on flat terrain it can comfortably travel at 55kph. Track traverse is also very quick for a TD, so lights will have a hard time circling you to death.

 

Camo

Concealment is fantastic. With a good crew and equipment, enemies will have a very hard time spotting you. Camo value took me by surprise on more than one occasion, after taking a shot I instinctively back up to cover only to realise I didn't get spotted at all.

 

Armor

There is none. Tank is paper and your health pool low, watch out for well aimed HE shells, two of those can kill you with ease. It plays like a typical, paper TD.

 

Value for money

Is it worth it? Yes! Hell yes! It's easily one of the best tier VIII Premium Vehicles currently in game. In fact, it's so good, it may easily compete and even replace the Scorpion G as the best tier VIII Premium TD.

 

Fun

Yes, it is tons of fun. Tank destroyers are not my main class but I can't wait to play this thing, it's that good. Get one if you can. :)

 

Matchmaking

This tank doesn't care for it. When top tier you will shred enemies, when bottom tier load HEAT and provide very significant fire support. Camo is your friend in tier X battles. This tank is great because it doesn't mind at all when it's bottom tier, besides you do not want to get spotted regardless of matchmaking.

I’ll second M4ntiX’s thoughts. I’m having a blast with mine as well. Easily one of the better premiums to come out in a while imho

A general observation, if no one is posting about a tank, it generally means people are happy with it. Most will only create threads when they aren't happy. Not always the case but it's usually a good indicator.

True, in general no news tends to be good news with things like this.

 

OP it looks like a very capable tank, I would have bought it myself instantly were it not for Black Friday being so close, which could also be a reason not many are talking about the tank too. It released at a time when people are likely keeping their gold for Black Friday instead, plus personal offers, whilst great for those of us on a budget, have made some wary of paying full price for a tank, as they know it will inevitably be sold cheaper a few months down the line (bit of a catch 22 for WG there when it comes to keeping people happy)

I like it a lot. Doesn't play quite how I thought it would on paper, but it works out really well. YouTube video seem positive too. 

 

I had a ton of gold and liked the look of it, so I didn't wait for the inevitable sale. Not disappointed.l

i think people are afraid if they say how good a tank is, that it may lead to the tank getting nerfed. wile if they post how bad a tank is it may get buffed.

 

thats what i think anyway.

SU is flater than Skorpion G thas Why this Tank Haß a great camo. I like it much more than the Skorpion G. U dont Need a full Rotation turret cause the hull traverse is also fast. It has got good gundepresion and an gunelevation like an arty. My reload is a little more than 11 seconds. Aiming Time is also good.

Thank M4ntiX for the review. It was exactly what I was looking for.
Thanks to the rest who contributed to this thread. It helps to have a range of thoughts. And I am also guilty of holding out for Black Friday but what if it isn’t all I hoped it would be!:D
