Good morning fellas :honoring: 

As you see ive wasted no time and stuffed wg premium shop with money. Took it for a few games, aced 3 times( 1st.:  http://wotreplays.eu...yingpancake-stg  , 2nd.: http://wotreplays.eu...ingpancake-stg , 3rd.: http://wotreplays.eu...ingpancake-stg  ) and here we are . 
Tank is NOT op . FAR from it . 

Bad points
1. Weak engine doenst allow to do stuff you can do with hover-soviet mediums 
2. Baaaad dpm lets you down if someone decides to rush you . Especially with higher tier tank 
3. Bad wievrange tells goodbye to vents , because even with uber crew, food and even improved vents you cant get to wievrange cap . 
4. Like in other new premiums , commander is a radio guy - that alone , instantly demants a minimum 4 perk commander from you .
Good points 
1. Alpha with decent acc - sure its not m4 rev, but its definetly not t-34-3 , because end acc and pen just feeels so daamn good. Soft stats got ptsd tho.
2. Camo + Low profile  -  enemies having hard time spotting you, and even if spoted , on anjulations you can get away with it , because pancake tank..... see what i did there :trollface: 
3. Gun depression - 6 degress isnt anything to brag about, but compared to 416 + fully rotatable turret - its something 

So , what do you guys think about this newly released tank ? Will it appear on your garage , and if its already in your hands - whats your first impressions ? Let me know in the comments bellow :child:

If my boss decides to pay me I might get it, but I might also give this one a pass. WG releases premiums faster than I can earn the money to buy them. :P

Everything is possible since they still have the option to overbuff it then call it balanced because they don't nerf premium tanks...

First impression??..

 

I think the tank looks great to the point that i wanted to get it today.But as i didnt know what its like i went to look for reviews on it..Reviews are not good.

 

Yes.Low DPM so you can be rushed makes you team dependant and limits what your options are when you need to 'Push' a flank...Not good when you need to take the game by its B%lls sometimes?..

 

Bad gun depression really so limits the positions you can take..

 

Bad terrain resistance so cant relocate well on soft/Med terrain...

 

Good accuracy...But as always RNG dependant.

 

Good pen on standard rounds but average on '2' key rounds so might struggle in tier T10 games as no mobility to relocate?

 

I guess the only thing it looks good for is sidescraping at med to long range and so in my eyes makes it 'City map' dependant to do half decent in??....at closer ranges makes you team dependant so you dont get rushed..

 

 

Tank looks great but i wont be bothering

 

Please update your post as im interested in your thoughts after mabye 20-30 games .? 

 

Thanks and GL

they should nerf tanks if it would be in the best interest of the game. (Ak defender)

I really liked the 416, but this tank doesn't have all the good thing which made the 416 good imo (camo and dpm mainly. ow. and that '2' key )
