Muppet team so hardly impressive.

It's not about being impressive, just showcases how you should act, nothing more, nothing less.


Oh and posting with your 2nd account, cmon...

I respect that you are a veteran player and you pike tho play the VK20... but it does not make the tank better.

I saw you only play OP tanks, and dont tell me laught if you want to play VK2001 more than 100 BATTLES IT WILL DOWN YOUR WR, according to that dont troll about VK2001 performance, thanks so much!

No one wants to platoon tier IV... this is all solo done, and no I'm not going to play 200 battles because someone needs to prove a point.

Lol you will dont play this tank for 200?

Then STOP GIVING WRONG HOPE to new players.

You are giving arguments to stop the vk2001 buff, and this tank need it.

Off course you will not broke your OP gold win ratio playing the crappy VK2001 for long, then saw it clear.

You can be a beast, Not the tank, dont give fake info, players will get hopeless when play this tank for a long.

The VK2001 is not the beast you say, its just crappy than all tier4meds.

I wouldn't say it's really bad it's just another underpowered low Tier Germen medium, fine in a Tier 4 game but quickly becomes useless in Tier 5-6 games.

It's biggest problems are it's slow, engine gets knocked out more than any other tank I've ever played and it has terrible MM.

You ever tried ramming against anything british? running it with 80% + crew?

I agree derp hetzers are dangerous but should not make you lose 55% of games whereas I get a 90% winrate.

And thats why you don't ram in this tank.

If this is a beast what is PzIII that has better armor, more movility/speed and same armament??? and many people dislike PzIII a lot...

For me i dont know whats the poing in 2001... if at least it has the PzIV stock turret with L43...

In 20-30 battles my son did great with this tank but then all of a sudden he started to end up in tier 6 battles and the damage and winratio started to drop fast.

Fail tank is fail.

Like today, ended in T6 battle where I become a victim of a T6 derp, twice (one shotted) with no damage done

VK 2001 NEEDS ITS MATCHMAKING LOWERED TO T5, PERIOD.

It already have trouble to pen T5 mediums, so I do not see a point, why WG even made such a lousy tank with such bad MM.

If you want to perform in it, you need to use premium ammo, which means YOU WILL LOSE CREDITS WITH THIS TANK. Or you will be called a n00b as you did nothing.

it's awesome tank but i don't really enjoy playing 9/10 matches with 6 tiers. i'm like happy when i see 5 tiers and seeing 4 tiers is maybe 1 for 20 battles. it's great tank and need maybe small buff but the best buff to it is to make a restriction of MM for max 5 tiers

Awesome what, design?

Design its not performance and this tanks Underperforms, including being top tier.

A beauty piece of trash.

Getting tired of this tank after 150 + some games. It has not very much that is worth the space it takes in the garage. Contest or not, I am not feeling up to play it anymore. No more lost engine in critical situations, no more helpless tier 6 games, no more mr. Easy Kill. Good bye Vk20.01D! :bajan:

I have to admit, German tank fan that I am, I still can't see why you'd choose this over the Panzer III. Is there some sort of hidden soft-stat thing it does really well or something? On paper, I just can't see why it exists - especially when the Panzer III is so much fun.

And I like this tank. 136 battles with 20.01D and 62% win rate. Using 7.5cm derp. Never lost against Pz.III. But I agree with opinion that Gold ammo is "must have" when You'll end up in Tier VI battle.

My five cents: the VK2001 - compared to the P3, trades off some top speed for better gun depression (with the 50 mm gun) and hull down fighting.
