So, I have -20 discount coupon and I am wondering what to buy. Currently I am between M56 scorpion standard package, from googling I noticed that this tank has bad reputation, so it is not really good tank I assume? 

Pudel supreme*****FIXED, accidentally wrote ultimate**** package would give me ton of good reserves and free crew with 0 perk BIA and enough gold to buy SuperPershing. Is pudel itself good or is it actually bad tank? How do you feel about it?

My last option is M4 ravioli which seems decent, from what I read it is good credit earning tank. 

Which should be wisest to get?

Well you want it for crew training or income? Or just to "collect".


As the Pudel is not a bad tank. It's basically the German 3002 M with more side armor. And I don't own the other two, but the M4 Rav is widely thought to be superb after his last buffs.

M4 Rev,

With a premium account you earn almost 10K for every pen shot you make.

But ofcourse most battles looks like this 12 shots fired, 10 hits and 2 pen.

The mm for tier 8 mediums is brutal and you need to play selfish and a bit defensive, because with a 10+ sec reload you cant really go 1 on 1 with anyone.

You have 2 play it because you want to make credits, not to win battles.


Another very good think with the REV is the bullet velocity, this makes it a lot easier 2 hit those "bulldogs" running across the map in early game.

An excellent light tank killer.

Ravioli I'd say, earns the most credits and is fun to play.


M56 Scorpion: It's a static gun TD and with a few exceptions static gun TD's are just artificially handicapping yourself especially in the current meta with the current maps.


As for Pudel, here is my review of it, not a bad tank but potato gun handling and low alpha:

I don't own one but I've heard a lot of good things about the Ravioli, both as one of the best credit earners you can buy and also as a decent tank in its own right if the playstyle appeals.


The Pudel seems a decent tank but you can have the pretty much the exact same experience by grinding out a VK 30.02 M. The Pudel currently isn't any use as a crew trainer and not that great as a credit earner so if I were you I'd just grind the standard tank if it appeals (and it is a fun little tier 6).


The M56 Scorpion is a very niche vehicle - it only does one thing (mobile bush camping sniper) and frankly it is at best merely OK at that. In any other role it fails. On top of that the current meta and map pool isn't very friendly to it. Of all the premiums I own its the one I've felt the most disappointed with after buying. It has been buffed since I last played it so I don't know how much that has improved the play experience but I really can't recommend it as anything but a niche collectors item.
