Is this semi-turreted little tank worth it? 

 

Would be nice to have a tier 7 credit maker and on top of that something to train my T67 crew so I can sealclub even harder, please don't judge...

 

I'm very interested but i'd like to hear your opinions.

I'm not criticizing people for sharing their opinion. I just asked poster above if he could explain why that is his opinion.

Would think a sneaky little semi-turreted TD could be fun, but there are so many things wrong with the Scorpion.

 

Mobility sucks, dispersion on the move is horrendous and every time the tank stops it rocks back and forth so it takes about 5 seconds to aim in and fire. Dpm and alpha are nothing to write home about, the only real positive about the gun is pen. And of course, 0 armour with low mobility means if you ever get spotted will be absolutely disintegrated.

 

I've got one because it came free with a gold bundle offer, but would never have brought it to play, the Scorpion is just sitting in my garage waiting for trade in to come back.

Opinions from other players are irrelevant.

If you want to know more about a tank, and personal thoughts from players, either use the forums search facility, google or youtube. Check some replays and come to your own conclusion.

People can say that they do not like the Scorpion because it lacks armour or mobility others might tell you that they like the struggle shooting at a target from +300 meters, it all makes no difference.
You should not have a point of view based on others experiences. Experience your own.

It would be a lot better if it had a turret. Hardly play mine anymore.

Pretty Damn fun to play, but you have to like the gameplay.

If you like the m8a1/t67/Hellcat and u don't mind not having a 360° turret, you could like it a lot.

Why is garbage?

 

-no armor

-no hp 

-low DPM

-low alpha

-low penetration for a TD

-not so accurate like E25

-big dispersion on move and when rotating the 'turret'

-no 360 degrees turret

-really light, any ram is fatal

What you have listed are not others experiences, aren't they?

I like it very much.

 

I've placed a great crew in it (BIA, full Concealment among other skills), slapped cammo, binocs, net and shell rammer - and the damn thing is invisible :-) An ultimate Premium bush sniper.

 

The only real problem - for those used to non-turreted vulnerable vehicles - are the maps it gets. Too much cities without bushes.

No. Slow shells and although it has gun depression, it is a rather one dimensional machine. It can camp and occasionally peek over ridge lines. Overall though, while not the worst tank in the game, it is far from the best,

It depends how you play your light TDs.    If you plan to shoot lots and not get shot at then this thing works.   If you haven't the patience to stay covered when you need to then probably not.
