I was prepared for this event because I followed the last year event page:

http://worldoftanks....d-special-2015/

If you see, the discounts are identically. In my opinion you can do better WG!, BUT as always something is better then nothing, so thank you for the goods.

Wish me luck.

So, NA and SEA get the VK45.03, we don't.

SEA get a bundel of the scorpian, m56 patton and skoda, we don't.

SEA get the Sentinal, we don't.

 

 

Do you see a problem here WGing? Do you perhaps see a reason why your shoddy "offers" to this server are getting people really annoyed? Do you perha- oh forget it. You got rid of downvotes you clearly don't give a flying monkey what we think.

In NA and SEA they face strong competition from other games so the offers are better. But WG should really fear Overwatch.

Is the M56 Scorpion a tank worth getting?

 

no it isnt :

 

http://tanks.gg/wot/...scorpion.c:e-25

 

its slow for its role (yes its p/w is good but traverse is horrific and top speed of 45kph just kills it), its viewrange is pathetic, its DPM abysmal and it has UNBELIEVABLY shitty gun soft statistics ( to illustrate, it has same gun bloom and dispersions of turret/hull traverse as KV2s 152mm derpgun ...)

 

 

avoid this piece of horse manure at all costs its probably THE worst T7 TD in the game ...

nah it is probably just bad decision making because bureaucracy doesn't care or the unpaid intern was allowed to choose his favourite tenk...

Hope you like it I kept mine after I got the Carnarvon and then Conqueror.

It's like a Churchill but without the weak spots and you can tank a lot of damage if its angled right.

All it is to me is 150k credits, not very good either. i can grind that in 4 games so it's a pretty crappy special when you look at it that way.

Checking out some premiums I have considered getting in the past so threw them into tanks GG to get an overview of their stats.

 

Looking at the VK4503, Panther 88, M4A1 Revalorise, Scorpion and one I rejected in the past the Kanonenjagdpanzer

I am even more tempted by the Scorpion as its penetration is better than all but the Kanonen and its premium pen is way better than them all at 275.

Think I am about to be £15 down ;)

 

I also noticed a couple of as yet unreleased TDS the Rheinmetal Skorpion and the Krupp Steyr Waffentrager that look interesting.

 

http://tanks.gg/wot/...r-wt.c:scorpion

 

edit

 

OK I bought the basic Scorpion package and put my best spare crew on it.

So im starting with 2 skills have sixth sense and camo.

Since I am going to be spending more time sniping from positions I went with Rammer Binoculars and a camo net.

Also added some temp camo paint.

 

3 games 3 wins not especially excelling in any of them just a couple of kills is all.

 

Thoughts

Gun seems unreliable at long range missed several fully aimed shots at stationary targets at around 250-300 metres

Aim time is good but the bloom when moving or traversing is annoying you will not be shooting on the move with it and even tracking a target just moving the gun is not fantastic.

 

Forward speed is decent enough turning is average reverse speed is ok

Camo I'm really not sure about this yet as I had 3 open maps 2 desert one summer I was well able to hide on the summer map but the desert I was spotted a lot.

Only had summer paint so maybe that's it.

 

Anyway pretty good with a couple of things I would like improving but its early days I could love or hate it by next week.

except Emil and Scorpion are both T7s ... ISU is T8 with T10 TD gun ... its as if we were talking about T7 heavies and compared T29s 105mm with IS2s 122mm and you went "but look at IS3s BL9, its way better ..."

 

would be nice if you stopped comparing apples to oranges.

the allies suffered significant losses on d-day? rlly? As i know the total man that the americans lost on d-day was 6000... the russians lost 6000 men in only a couple of hours in stalingrad.. the americans english and french in total lost about 1million soldiers throughout ww2.. the germans alone lost about 13million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and the russians lost more that the previous nations together (about) 27million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It isn't apples with oranges its oranges with slightly larger oranges and the T29's 105mm is easily comparable with the IS-3 as its the same as the T32's gun. The Emil's gun is good for standard ap but there are more versatile TD guns at tier 7.

I see business is as usual: other servers get a bunch of nice offers and we get jack squat.
