Is it just me or have t8-t10 battles been infected with swarms of disgusting, ugly, stinky arachnoids? I guess everyone and their mother bought themselves a skorpion today....

It is apparently the most popular T8 vehicle. It is further amplified by the ongoing special for 25 wins in T8, it being on sale and matchmaking dictating that a Skorpion is just about the most effective moneymaker in T8.

 

(Probably a lot of people that think that 50k will go straight to free XP, for most of us it's likely not really worth the hassle to try hard to do it - 50k XP on one crewman isn't that much. On most tanks it's equal to 10-12,5k per crewman, that's not a ton of battles with a crew booster activated.)

Unless you don't accelerate training on that 25th victory, convert the 50k with the special rate of 1:35 and wait for a special of 1 free xp → 10 crew xp so those 50k go up to 500k...

Certainly not a bad idea, though point was that most don't convert XP much. I guess it's tempting, question is if you're better off spending money on crew boosters.

You're not, there are plenty of opportunities to earn such boosters, every month with the ToTT, 10 for 300% during 2h.

1428 gold to convert the 50k XP, now that's 1:35, goes for a bit over €5 which will later on become 500k crew XP.

 

Their booster has 20 reserves of 200% during 2h for about €20. Divided by 4, that's 10h you can do 75 battles with an average of 8 minutes. Even if you win them all, and they're all taking the daily first win, that's about 2k XP with premium account, so 75 battles times 4k crew XP...300XP? On various tanks? I rather place it exactly where I want.

But that's exactly what WG want, blatant cash grab dressed up as a special.

 

In the old days specials were good, free rewards with no strings attached, now we see useless free specials and blatant cash grabs. We should be shunning these specials not encouraging them.

They're so huge, they practically can be spotted from space. Not to mention the paper thin armor.

2 things...

  • your gun caliber didn't help.
  • the f***** commander is the loader too so safe stowage comes very late in this tank.

happy fireworks :facepalm:

The Skorpion is a strong but balanced tank. The tank has obvious pros and cons. The tank is a German style pureblood tank hunter. The whole tank is made around a 128mm field gun. It has a stripped down panther chasis, which is its main weakness, because it can get one shotted by HE shells. But not before the aggressor recieving a 500dmg shell :justwait:

I played it over the weekend, it's the only cure against these Defenders/OPject252/OPatriots/MLOP49's unfortunately.

 

Cobra 6

IT IS the cure for such OP tanks like Crysler K or Deffender,Patriot.       They are the disease and i am the cure! The skorpion is the counter to  these powercreep corridor holding heavies.

A matter of fighting fire with fire?

Dunno if that is the answer you'd want but if it works... Why not

Its not fighting fire with fire. The skorpion is not OP it is a TD and its job is to deal with high value and difficult to pen Heavies and other TD's. It kinda resembles early MBT's , no armour, very fast and agile and great guns.   The game is realistic when we talk about tank roles, this is why the skorpion is a natural counter of deffender.

It is better than every other t8 TD and so its OP.  "But it has no armor and it doesnt't turn well"  mimimimi.. WFE100 had no armor and it didnt turn well was it op? How about grille? Its bloody OP like the rest of new age premiums
