Go buy this TD and with the new MM, the sMM doesnt give a significant advantage anymore. The new premiums that you will face, the Patriot/Defender/Chrysler, you just wont even be able to penetrate, so go flank them. ~WG

Oh yeh lets resell all the old premiums again - maybe I should go make 2nd and 3rd accounts and buy all these premiums you keep selling again and again just to prove you are still trying to milk the f**k outta this game before it dies.....

This was my very first premium years ago that I had until about a month ago when I was forced to trade it for sta2. Jg88 used to be the very best of premium credit makers but now in the competition of all the power creep it has become obsolete. The matchmaking should be limited but with the 9.18 update you face mostly just tier 9. Do not get this pos. It is a waste of money even at its current price.

More and more useless these days and WG is still selling it at full price. What a joke.

 

What about buffing these old machines (JT8.8, FCM 50t, IS6, WZ111, etc.) before selling faulty items?

None turreted TD's are completely obsolete in the current game meta (with some exceptions: E-25 for instance) so not worth spending a single penny on.

 

Couple that with the fact that the new MM royally screws over Preferential MM tanks in general I can only advise to not be dumb enough to buy this one, it's not worth it at all until it get's the mobility of the T9 JT at least.

I think the tank is really-really bad... If you want a premium JT, then wait instead, for the 128mm one...

I have one from a while back (when it was ok) and I can confirm. It`s a waste of money, don`t get it.

Don't bother with this. It's just not competitive any more and won't even make money while you get torn apart by Defenders.

i got it much cheaper that this but nevertheless i still think it's a good premium for the money that really makes tons of credits - even on standard account it will net you at least 40k and with prem account those 100k+ profit games won't be that rare.

I believe that 36€ isn't that much for this tank if you compare it to other premium tank prices (overall i still think everything WG is selling is overpriced) 

 

!!! But it's not all happy and dandy... why ?
Because WG powercreeped it like hell ever since the introduction of those retarded Japanese heavy tanks and now we all know what JgTig88 has to fight in it's own tier -> Defender, Patriot, Chrysler, O-Ho, ...

All of those are almost impossible to pen with this tank and if you plan to contest them with prem ammo be prepared to lose insane ammounts of credits since your reload is 4.4s, alpha only 240dmg and one prem shell costs you freaking 4400 credits (great freaking balance WG...)

Perfect Premium for flanking the new balanced tanks like Defender, Patriot, Chrysler since you can't pen them even with gold.

Do not bother with this. It is a bad tank. It has the following flaws:

 

1. Only 200mm pen, this was great back in th day, but now with the power creep and 999mm pen this gun means sh!t.

2. The premium ammo has rendered this tank armor obsolete, so it's not even worth bothering, everybody will pen you in the upper structure.

3. With the matchmaker changes, it suffers the same as all premium matchmaker tanks, now you see way more tier 9 and 8 than before and most of the tanks are too strong.

4. It is very slow. VERY. VERY SLOW. Think Lowe before buff, that slow, annoying.

5. Arty will chew it up, scouts will troll you, all tier 9 tanks will pen you with standard ammo.

 

DO NOT BUY IT! I wish I could exchange mine. It used to be very good but now it is just uncompetitive and frustrating to play.

It was bad before the new mm and new premiums, now it's just plain useless. Why would you buy a turretless td that won't pen anything frontally when you can get pretty much the same price the ultimate power creep, Skorpion that gets:

40mm more pen

incredible mobility

double the alpha

traversable turret

 

This is just a relic from the past that maybe some tank collectors might get and never play it.

It was a good tank, when sMM and 200mm armor meant somenthing, not anymore. I have it the garage and was really thinking of trading in when the trade event was on. Still puts out some credits if you manage to get a good position, but you can`t just sit in front of the enemy and bounce them all day long when top tier.

Do not buy this! On most of the maps it's almost useless because thanks to terrible mobility, useless armor when not hull-down, low alpha damage, and last but not least, no turret, it's a terrible brawler and all around awful on most corridor maps. And even on open maps it's not very good because it's so freaking slow that it's hard to get to decent positions and it also has terrible camo values.
