Bought it played it and its decent but a little lacking in one area.

Could do with better view range or better camo rating, your call. ;)

I have >445m active view range on this thing. Crew: BIA,Recon,Situational awareness. Equipment: Optics, rammer, camonet. That gives you 4xx active view range add chocolate and it's beyond maximum.

Yes and my point is not everyone has this.

When QB tested it he was not on his account which no doubt has superb crews, so he was probably on a wargaming account ie an all skills crew.

 

I have a 4 skill crew and yes its a decent TD but you have really bad camo values even with camo net paint and skill you get spotted frequently.

I do not have BIA and don't usually use chocolate in randoms so less than max view range. 417 BIA would give 427 and chocolate 447.

So I can play with optics at 417 or use Binocs for 508

It sounds great and thats exactly what I use on my Borsig but the borsig is an all but invisible glass cannon TD while the Skorpion is a Panther sized Glass cannon.

 

You get spotted most games, many tanks at tier 9 and 10 have a natural 400 view range and way better camo.

Great gun fantastic even but I think it either needs an improvement in camo view range or speed and I do not mind which.

 

Better view range I see them before they see me or at least have an expectation of doing so certainly a better chance than I do now.

Better camo I can get closer.

Better speed I can run and relocate

60kph is a pipe dream scorpions 45-50 most games.

I was going to argue that the 650 engine should give much better performance on the skorpion than the panthers 700 engine but it seems the tanks are not that different in weight.

That did surprise me.much heavier gun adds almost as much weight as armour and a turret do on the panther.

 

The Borsig and waffentrager IV have stealth, The Grille 15 has speed I can bomb round the battlefiled in my grille 15 and chase down other tanks or run away.

Maybe it would have a better view range if the commander wasnt so busy loading 12,8cm shells and their propellant charges and had time to do his job and spot targets.

These [edited]idiots.... You guys have no idea what you are talking about... If its needs anything, its a nerf, and not any kind of buff... Every Skorpion I've seen, everytime, and I mean everytime, ends up beind top 1 or 2 in damage on each time... EVERY SINGLE TIME

Now don't come throw your bullshits here... Even unicorns are saying this is a ridiculous op tank.

Exactly.........Even the worst tomato makes decent damage with this OP-pay to win crap.

Scorpion is blatantly better than the regular T8 TD because it fits much better in the current game meta. It's basically the equivalent of a good T9/T10 medium tank; Great gun, good mobility and nice gun depression.

 

Armour and camo are pretty much irrelevant in World of Goldammo and World of Corridors, it's much better to have a functional and mobile peek-a-boom machine.

Then the worst tomato should just grind the rhm Borsig which will cost them no money and put out the same or more damage without being seen.

 

btw stop misusing pay to win just because something may or may not be op and costs money does not make it pay to win.

 

pay to win what ? gold money a free holiday air miles what

 

Unless you mean pay to win credits because yes like any premium esp tier 8 ones it earns credits, not as much as some tier 8s but you can expect 35 or 40k most games even doing badly.

Thats below average for a tier 8 premium,take a decent player to get into the 80-100k using it.

Hey

How about making the custom camouflage paint like Lorraine's 40t ?

It's pretty boring seeing the tank always the same.
