why do people hate this tank so much. :( ive been enjoying it so much the gun is like a laser and the armor  holds up really well. Not only that but its a side scraping god.

I feel as if people need to play more aggressive :izmena: and not camp as much. maybe because its one of the most played tanks and new players buy it as there first tier 8. :bush:

The reason they hate it and you love it is because it got a massive buff in one of the last few patches.

The current opinion is that it's a very decent tank.

The criticism is either from before the recent buff, or is continued by people who don't realise it has been buffed.

 

It is unfair to criticise all those who endured the Lowe in its previous state and try to tell them how to play it now. For a long time it was the only German heavy premium tank, so it was popular for crew training and credit earning, but the advise to play hull down was valid as the only thing going for it was the turret and gun. Of course players who have just bought it may read the older threads about its performance and wonder what the problem was, so it's always worth being sceptical about historical reviews.

Löwe was for many years bleh. It was basically between mediocre and terrible, depenging on the state of the game, never being any better than that.

 

Nowadays Löwe is actually one of the most powerful tier 8 premiums available on tech tree. It is also one of the very few tier 8 premium HTs that can hold its own in T10 battle.

Edit: Or maybe not, cant really decide.

Löwe, the misunderstood gentle giant.

 

Wish I had one.

Hating on the Löwe is so 2k15.

I seem to mis so many shots in the lowe, not because of the tank, but because my aim is crap, its like i have parkinsons. And for some reason that only happens in the lowe...

I don't hate Lowe, but I am wary of Lowe drivers on my team.

It's the best premium you can get for Gold currently. Other prems that can be bought for cash may be better though.

It was a decent tank pre buff and it is significantly better now, it's downside remains..... Shite mobility and DPM otherwise it's one of the better tier 8 prems.

Believe me even though I'm still a noob,after the buff is much much better,if properly placed and played,it's surprisingly effective even at tier 10

That's because it's such a beauty. It's like having sexy time with an ugly person and you feel super comfortable and then you hypothetically go to bed with a 10 and suddenly you have no idea what you're doing. Or something, idunno.
