Game breaking bug indeed. Hope they patch that fast so it don't ruin the flow of your gameplay. Could be that they did send it 320 games ago. But your ISP had to much packet loss that day, so they finally found it again and decided to give it to you anyway.

Can't really blame players for camping in their TDs when the description even says "versatile ambush vehicle". :great:

 

I mean, even the goshdarn trailer for the Skorp:

Yeah, got this for my 500 battle old lorraine. But thinking about, perhaps WG only just recently implemented this and now it's just popping up?

 

anyway, i do think it's good that they provide some kind of information. I'm sure that there are loads of players who just buy stuff but don't have a clue how to set them up.

If it said "Awesome YOLO rush vehicle" do you honestly think it would break people out of their TD Red-line camping mindset?

Maybe. Some players strongly believe that 'tank destroyer' literally means they should sit in a bush and wait for tanks to arrive, without any other care in the world. Sure, many maps actually cater to simply camping in the base, but there's hardly any need to define it as a primary playstyle.

While I know the Skorpion is near impossible to play at mid-range due to shitty camo and lack of armor, there are situations where it's way more useful as a gunboat.

I agree entirely. But generally if you are dying late game, it's to a TD back on the red line. Most dont even care about the result, they take up position and wait for their flank to die. It is refreshing when you meet a good aggressive TD player, or at least one who moves to support the tanks on the front.

So game-play related, so useful.
