Hello!

I am looked some Löwes on random battles. I like it gun accuracy.

Some Löwe drivers look noobs: They drive down to the "valley" on El Halluf, etc.

Löwe only looks too expensive... It is really worth 12500 Gold?

T34 is better.
+1, even is6 is better.
Lowe was nerfed to death.
But i recommend you to reach at least 5000-6000 battles before buy a premium tank.

Löwe is well-suited to sniping. Soviet-style brawling with it looks suicide. Löwe can kill even IS-3 with distance, but "beaks against each other" IS-3 wins easily.

Löwe also looks really cool, beautifulest tank IMO with IS-series... ;)

If you don't have a good German heavy crew, I wouldn't bother with Loewe, honestly. Treat yourself a KV-5, so that you can train your russian heavy crew.

But when I look at your stats, then I'd like to mention that tier 8-10 is the fighting pit for the most experienced players, and it's a harsh environment to learn and get better. With premium tanks you join the fight in second class equipment - both Loewe and KV-5 have glaring weak spots - so while they don't cost as much to run, they might be much more frustrating to play than say your IS-3.

If you are looking for credit maker, then yes it is worth it, but if you are just looking for fun tank to drive and dont have to worry about credits, i would say its not worth 50€. I think you should give it a go on the testserver and see if you like it, as none of us can say if it really suits your playstyle ect. or not.  :Smile_Default:

As per e-mail to you just a bag of sh-t.  What WG say this tank can do, it can not and even if it did come close to doing what it says on the  forums then everyone would be playing it.  Reason why WG keeps this tank so nerfed is because they sold that many they do not want plays playing with this tank any time soon.

remeber this

LOWE = SCAMMED BY WG FOR REAL CASH

I am not saying dont buy a prem tank just don't buy this pile of sh-t

PS forum moderators I have not sworn and only spoken my opinion.  S      S

i would not buy it again. it get's the job done (earning credits) but otherwise it is a sub average tank in my opinion. the best argument for löwe is the gun accuracy but considering the fact, that the difference between 0.35 and 0.33 is hardly noticeable (you can do the math), i would go for t34 if i would ever spend cash on this game again. it has the same MM but amazing hull down abilities paired with bad ass 248 penetration, even higher then german tier 10 guns. also shells cost almost the same but t34 offers more alpha, so you will be earning more per shot.

I got one this week - love it.  Only got 27 battles with it but 66% win rate - it's fun to play and very accurate.  Most fights I seem to kill 2-3 people.  Made 800k last night :D

Teletubbies's way: nope, it's a crap ... nope, it's a crap.
By the way try it for free on test server and judge by yourself.

after 27 battles winrate does mean anything.

I tested Löwe on test server:

The gun is good, armor is not. I think, it is ok tank.

For crew training Löwe is +++ choise.

For money grinding its good also but I prefer JT 88 more.

For powerplay it's kinda tricky. You have to learn to live with it's weakness!

Nope, IS-6 is worst.

It has pitiful 175mm penetration: if you are facing IS-3, "We just dingded!" or "Richochet!" or "We didn`t penetrate their armor!" Löwe has tier 9 gun with good 234 pen. If you are facing IS-3 you will pen it, except turret.

Löwe has also accuracy, RUS guns are more inaccurate, THIS is the reason, why I hate D-25T. Löwe pens even Maus easily, if it is not angled.

The only tank I bought, but only for 7500 gold back in the good old days. 12500 is too much I think. The tank is really decent. Don't underestimate it (especially if you are trying to ram it :Smile_trollface-3: )

IF you are going to buy a premium tank your choices should be:

- T34
- Löwe

Any other prem tank is simply not worth it.... maybe the Type 59.

If you like the T29/T32 playstyle you should go for the T34. It has an excellent hulldown tactic + great alpha damage.
I you like a 2nd line support tank: Löwe: The Löwe cannot lead an attack but is an excellent sniper and should brawl at the 2nd line.

I do not have the T34 but I do have the Lowe and I'm glad about it, altough the T34 would fit my profile aswell.

All the other premium tanks are just bad compared to the 3 I mentioned.

Ok, I maybe buy Löwe. It can be benefit to Tiger, whose I buy in future.
