Drive up to enemy, shoot them in the face, drive back. Rinse and repeat until enemy dies.

Since you have no camo and WG removed all potential (and useful) sniping spots on the map you'll be playing this mostly as a gimped medium/brawler tank.

Gimped medium. Are you serious? 250 pen, 500 alpha, 60kph.

 

This is one of the most broken premium tanks WG released so far. Borsig is completely obsolete compared to this thing. And ofcourse the only way to get this, is Premium store. Thanks WG!

Gimped? still better tank than majority of same tier mediums due to the huge gun alone. M4 Rev for one.

Sorry but the Borsig has a better camo rating than the AMX ELC bis and all sniping spots have not been removed just a lot of the obvious ones.

No longer possible to say ahh yes El Haluf drive to point A hide behind bush B and snipe, you have to get inventive,

It takes no skill on a map covered by soft cover to hide and ambush players.

 

Im assuming the Skorpion has a camo rating somewhere between the Waffentrager IV which isnt bad and the Grille 15 which I do not yet know because its not been added to the tables yet. but is okay ish.

So in other words, you've made the borsig even better, and now sell it as a premium?

 

I just... Why? I'm not buying your premiums when they're just going to be flat out too expensive and way too OP. This game is losing all TD potential as a result, you just make this? It's effectively nullified a bunch of the MTs, such as the T-34-3 and the M4 since the only thing it doesn't have that they do is a better traverse speed and armour, which isn't going to be that big of a deal...

Im sorry but why should a tank you buy be worse than a tank you grind for ?

 

In the days of prefered matchmaking most premium tanks were worst than the equivalent upgraded version.

 

So you bought a tier 8 heavy like say the Jagdtiger 88 it was better than a stock jagdtiger but worse than an upgraded one. and was a tier lower

and of course given its gun its got prefered matchmaking so only up to tier 9.

If that came out today they would give it a much better gun, probably similar to the Skorpion and it would see tier 10

 

You either get a slightly gimped tank with special mm or you get one equal to standard tanks.

 

Fury, Cromwell B, ISU122s, IS2, T34-85 Rudy all as good as their standard versions.

Im tempted to play on my NA account where if I get in the top ten in a battle I can rent the Skorpion for 24 hours and see what its like.

 

Tank Rental Missions
August 18-19
04:20 PT / 07:20 ET
Win a battle and place in the top 10 XP earners (on your team) in a vehicle that's…

    Tier IV-VI: Unlock the SU-100Y rental for 24 hours!
    Tier VII+: Unlock the Rheinmetall Skorpion rental for 24 hours!

If either matches your playstyle, you can get them in the Premium Shop!
But don't wait, the Rheinmetall Skorpion is only available for a limited time!

Yeah sorry, should have said "Gimped Tier 10 medium", my apologies didn't meant Tier 8.

many tanks are op in the right hands

seeing its armor and the 360 view range i'd say there is nothing op about it. trades some camo for some mobility compared to rhm

object 140 is op in many hands, but in my hands, well... :trollface:

there are those that can successfully use rhm without getting owned. 750 before enemy can hide is better... its not like all enemies will just sit and ask for more.

 

Question to the smart ones - 430 radio range... doesnt it mean i wont see targets my team spots if they are 700m away from me or how does it work exactly? With skills it can be upgraded above 500 and it still doesnt seem much.

i plan equipping it with rammer, optics and binoqs. And skills - BIA, radio man with increased radio range (hence > 500 radio range). View range this way is above 450 while stationary. Cammo is gona remain crapthought...

Rhm also works in close range. I remember my is-6 against rhm (poping out from cover), 750, back. I didnt know that guy was there, therefore i was unable to run away properly (coridor...).  First shot on me was a surprise and i was driving, therefore he had time to retreat. i did shoot enyways, but missed as is-6 needs to stop and aim before it can shoot. After that i did damage him, but 750 with 1 extra shot against is-6 wins...

Ok so I went onto the NA server "advantage of 2 accounts" some nice deals you can win 24 hour rental of an SU100y or a Skorpion as well as the M41-90 and other tanks.

I played the american Scorpion and Panther mit 88 over there.

Anyway

Played one game in my Ferdy won the skorpion.

 

Its not as fast as you might think 60 they say, yes well on the maps I played it on I was getting 45-50 on the flat so still decent but 60 nope thats not going to happen most of the time.

Turning is a little sluggish but not bad and reverse speed is pretty decent.

Gun performed well got around 2k damage in the games I played aiming time is good as is accuracy.

Penetration damage of the AP APCR and HE is the same as the borsig so with the lower rof the dpm is a little less but not much.

Forgot to check ammo costs but probably the same, and repairs will be a lot lower.

Over there it came with a special camo that looks great so currently you could not buy any cammo or inscriptions at least on the rental version

 

One other point they say -7 gun depression thats not quite true if you look in tanks gg straight ahead its -6 to the left and right about 30 degrees onward its -7 and to the rear its pretty bad -3 I think.

Borsig has -5 all round.

 

Im buying one I do love my TDs.

 

games over on the NA were mad generally 6 Skorpions and SU100ys in each game The medium tank players were having a field day getting kills off them.

 

EDIT

Please Note the Skorpion 4 man crew does NOT match the Borsig as you have a Radio operator instead of a loader.

So Commander Driver Gunner Radio Operator.

That just messed up my plan of moving a 4 man crew over from the Borsig

Anyone who has BIA will probably be pretty miffed
