VK 28.01H is "dead" on EU - good players turned away from it.

 

You can get Ace tanker badge with measly base 1183 XP (that's how much i needed)

Just compare this to Chaffee, where 1089 base XP gave me only 2nd class badge.

 

EDIT Wotreplays shows that ~1450 base XP is enough for ace tanker on Chaffee. Still the point is valid - its much more than fat leopard.

 

There must be a reason, why Fatleopard is (almost) not played at all by good players, while they still keep running the Chaffe (as both can be considered T6). Those Chaffee unicorns are the real reason, why mastery badge requirements are so inflated.

 

Fat leo is just obsolete, simple as that. It requires too much effort (to shine) and still gives not much profit.

If the VK28.01H was really good, it would get much more love - not only from few guys, like Tazilon...

 

a)  No such thing as a "Fat Leopard"; that is an archaic, completely misguided nickname no one uses anymore.  The 28.01 is not related to the 16.02 at all.

 

b)  You show your lack of awareness of how XP works in your post.  A Tier V Chaffee who gets the exact same stats in a battle as a Tier VI VK 28.01 will get more XP simply because it is classed as a Tier V.  That doesn't make it a better tank.  Back when they were both Tier Vs, the 28.01 always had higher XP requirements for Ace than did the Chaffee.  Even after the nerfs, the 28.01 still beats a Chaffee hands down.  

 

The reason many players, even "good" ones, abandoned the 28.01 is because it takes real skill to play it.   The wannabe gamers can't handle the challenge so they have moved on to easier tanks.  

 

As for profit::  my bank exceeds 80,000,000 (86,077,428 to be exact), primarily earned with the 28.01.  At the end of the consumable discount in January, my bank stood at 10.5 million. - and I have bought several tanks and fully equipped them since then.   Because it is no longer a Top Tier scout, it isn't a money sink as is the Chaffee; yet another reason it blows the M24 away.

It is actually good at everything a scout does.  It is much better than a Leopard once you get all the equipment upgrades.  As for acquiring skill, it never stops.  Overall,  my WR and avg XP has climbed steadily, albeit very slowly now, ever since I bought it.

863 battles with my beloved vk 2801. But now it is only a shadow of what it was. 96% agrees. RIP.
