... STA-2. But I don't know if it's worth it - and for me, this would be my first T8 Premium. So far I only have an Excelsior and Chi-Nu-Kai, both I've gotten for "free" gold over the couple of years.

If it's frustratingly hard to play, like the IS-2 was for me, even fully upgraded (people say it's a fine tank, but I just hate the gun SO much), then I won't buy it. But, if it's playable and either fast, or has a good armor at least on the sides or the turret, then it's a fine tank...

 

I wouldn't overthink this so much, if it wasn't my first expensive premium, but also, if I wasn't a fresh academy graduate with no job for now (and I wasted the money I could spend on festivals, drinking and dru.. ms):teethhappy:

The closest I'll be able to get the tank will probably be early October, IDK how premium tanks's prices move, so I'm thinking when or if to buy it.

I will not get any of those just because of how many people drive them.

My eye was mostly on the STA, the FCM or the Panter 88 just because I don't play Germans and I would like some Edited 

Especially hate the Scorp G, I don't care if everyone needs one just because of how easy-to-play that camping monstergun is I won't be getting that.

Try it out on the test server and see what you think of it before purchasing maybe? It should help you decide at least.

T8 mediums are generally not worth it, best-in-class or not. Sure, you can have some decent games as bottom-tier, but it is usually not fun. Matchmaking and the maps ensure that.

Well STA-2 is a bad tank.

Patriot, Defender, Skorpion, Liberte and Lorraine are much stronger tanks better suited for the current T8 meta and will earn more credits due to higher standard penetration and better damage potential. 

 

But if you want to buy a more or less bad tank, feel free to do so.

Is it a tier 8 medium?

Does it have 240 alpha?

Does it get normal MM?

If the answer was yes to all of these, its  not worth it.

I prefer it to the STA-1 at least by 30% (not taking into account it's a premium and comes with the extra xp and credits)

Why not? Unless you're from the crowd that thinks only OP premium tanks are worth it.

because you're driving a  generic 240 alpha medium, which weren't that good before we got all the OP premiums or the matchmaking change so that you see tier X all day every day.

I bought the Lowe, got issued a 20% off on some mission thing, was thinking about it anyway so went for it.

 

I love it to bits.  Even against T10 I make credits and exp.

So I get to see 3 tier 10 max. Such tragedy.

If you're into playing hipster tanks instead of OP ones, it's a good choice.

Takes some time to rack up damage with 240 alpha, but the gun depression is nice and you get a powerful HEAT round for hard targets.

In practice the gun feels a little derpy though. Need to either aim it fully in, or be comfortable with missing some shots as a trade-off for less exposure. (But the problem is that it doesn't carry too many shells, so there's some extra pressure considering wasted shots...)

Frankly I didn't make it work too well yet, overall. It feels like it does have some stronger potential though. But at the same time I think the saying's true that it's a hard tank to master. Not an easy mode tank by any stretch of the imagination. I'd guess that might be due to it's fragility. (Even when you're hull down the turret still gets penned, and out in the open it feels even more like paper.)

If you manage to pull off a good game in it, it feels like a great achievement though. :)
