5 kills, 1846 damage, but lost the battle. My mistake for thinking enemy arty was near their base. Some of my team were £$^%&*&%^%.

after the initial excitement of getting a US TD premium, ive now come to the conclusion that it is a BAD tank, far too many weaknesses and not many good points.  I think im going to stop playing it and let it rust in the corner.  

 

Give me a LARGE DPM increase. 

Give me a moderate mobility/speed improvement

Give me better camo after shooting values.

Allow me 4 repair kits so i can continuously fix the gun.

Give me a MUCH needed view range increase

 

Come back T40, you are once again my US TD crew trainer.

I love mine. This evening I started on my second skill and am up to 55% already in 33 battles.

The only things i would like is a major "Camo after firing" "Slight DPM increase" and a major "Gun modual HP increase" buff. this thing has worse armor than a E25 and deserves a major buff, the E25 at least has a wierd armor sloping and a troll gun mantle that can bounce 122mm guns sometimes, everything on Scorpion is worse than a E25, and E25 gets preff MM? what a joke.

 

Im happy with my Scorpion but side by side E25 kicks its butt hands down in evey aspect besides PEN... i mean id lower the pen to 150 too if i get OP stats like E25, that tier 5 camo, that tier 10 DPM with amazing speed and size? WG really need to pull there finger out there bunghole.

 

WG, you have damaged new premiums too hard with older preff MM tanks being OP. anything you spit out now will be worse than preff MM tanks so i dont understand why you are even trying to make new underpowered Prem tanks (comparing them to preff MM tanks).

It's definitely not the E-25.  I had a 5vs1 on Westfield recently in the E-25 that I converted to a win.  E-25 wins on mobility, speed, armour, aim time, rate of fire; slightly better camo, worse alpha (why did they remove it again?).  

 

If you can keep this tank hidden, it's great! The game on Himmelsdorf was a 1 in a 1000.  I would reckon to have done the same more easily in the E-25.

 

I'll take the E-25 over the Scorp any time given the choice its much less situational.

 

One thing as a new prem TD, does the Scorpion have retain a high camo after firing in the same way the that older Premium TD's do.

Definitely not,  I seem to be spotted from a huge distance after shooting, so needing to pull back after every shot.....but very slowly!

I wouldent care for the poor "after firing camo" if it wasent for the crippling reverse speed. which E25 gets much more than Scorpion and faster traverse with MORE after firing camo? WG dont understand balance. they broke the game with these preff MM tanks.

How about better camo before firing, had only a few games in it, the gun isn't bad  it is a glass cannon that falls apart if a warm fart is wafted towards it; but it is spotted far too easy! I have sat behind double bushes abusing  spotting mechanics  and still get lite up to the point where I feel it's has the same camo values as the jagtiger

Yeah. Love seeing these guys drive out into my cromwell's field of fire thinking they're invisible, then try to reverse with a broken gun and engine at what, 5kph? feels like they've artificially reduced it so it doesn't become another hellcat.

HE away, chaps. :trollface:

 

 

That said, a decent player in one (i.e one that understands the camo mechanics) can be a real danger.

Its a crippled mobility E25 without preff MM. it should not be like this.. oh and the gun stats are a lie. the ammount of 100% aimed misses that the shell just eats the dirt is a joke, i dont even get why the shell velocity is worse on AP than HEAT because AP shell so slow i could compare O-I derp gun to it in comparison.

 

Its a good tank for its tier. but im not happy about E25 being better than it when its got preff MM as well. 150pen or not.

god this tank is crap, it is in so much need of a buff..... another reminder to never buy new premium tanks.  Another reason to move to AW i think

Its so totally unflexible, only thing it can is snipe when there is a bush and 300m to enemy tank, rest = BS and thats 95% of the time.

4 kills and 2566 damage and didn't get called a cheat. Won the battle after 5 absolute moron teams just failed to show any skill at all.
