You know, VK2801 kill the wg employers ancestors....wait, it couldnt!! it never exist!!


The hate for this tank must be from another side, who of you kill a dev in a humillating way when driving VK, confess!!!


I just cant belive it, is the worst t6 now, and they continue to destroy the mobility, when they open their eyes? Well, seems my crew continue the holiday in T15, sealcubbing it's fun and WG makes it happen, there is no german light in high tier to make a 4 skills crew work.

I'd love to post a screenshot of a nice downhill ram against unsuspecting [WG] T-44 in Westfield here.
Unfortunately the replay is way too old version to work anymore.

Guys, you should know it. It's a german tank. So why did you used it at all?

This tank is now a fucking useless tank. It can only go with 60km/h (while going down from the hill of course). The 10,5cm ITS NOT GOOD! They nerfed the gun too. Now the HE shells wont do instant damage. The Aufpanther had a nerf too. Its really achieved the name: AwfulPanther. ITS DEGREES IS 30° AT THE TOP MOTOR!!!  The whole fucking german scout is dead. Even with the Luchs. Rest in Piece. The WG totally wrecked the whole line...

I am quite sure VK45 series and Maus avoid nerf. As long The great Maus line and E-100 stays un-nerfed WG can do whatever they want. BTW is there still something about VK28 that is not nerfed?

Nope. Its nerfed to the bottom. It cant any get worse. It was a god troughout to the 8.6.... But now its a fucking useless shit tank. It cant reach the 60km/h on the slick terrain. At 8.5 i could killed a tier 8 medium one by one but now i cant kill a fucking frenchie newbie scout.

Arty nerf was actually an indirect nerf to the VK2801. The number of arties in a match went down so the original niche of VK2801 as an arty hunter was killed off. Not that you could get to the arties with 60 top speed anymore anyway.

Hard to understand why they nerf a tank 5 updates in a row when its 2 week win rate is low ...

In short, because they don't give a shit.  What tanks have you been using as a VK2801 replacement? (At least I assume you're not playing it nearly as much)

Replace it?   lol...why?
i just won the VK 28.01 category in the Light Tank Marathon on the NA server and routinely rack up good scores with it.  i see no need to replace it.
i own every Light classified as a Scout, plus an Indien-Panzer, Bat Chat 25t, SU-122-44, E-25 (a hilariously fun little beast to play), the gifted T-15 WOT gave us (almost never use it but I transfer my 28.01 crew over to it when I do), and i spent some of the gold I won in the Light Marathon to just buy a 8.8cm Pak43 Jagdtiger.
I play the 28.01 the most by far though.   If i play something different, it's usually my T71, Pz38nA, Auf Pantheror E-25 and  I try to play my bat chat at least once a day to get the double for the crew.  I guess I like German Lights with bad reputations the best - i am nearing 1,000 battles in my Auf Panther; I have played it the most after my 28.01.
But replace my Cougar?  OH! THE HORROR!!!  PERISH THE THOUGHT!!!
