Out of all of those the FV201 needs a buff the most. Its slow has no armor and a terrible gun.

Well some of these were good when they game, but got bad with time.

 

Kanonenjagdpanzer was bad on day one. But was that one not planned for a buff with the upcoming German tech tree rework? Like adding a 105mm gun or something?

 

Edit: Yeah, found it.

Spoiler

I'm mostly waiting for the FV4202 engine buff to come and give it slightly better mobility, I think the tank really needs it for a medium.

That was the last buff it got. Speed is not something even the normal Cent 1 was known for. But it's way better now then it was when it first came. Then it did bleed the speed badly when turning, not it can at least maintain it. But it might be playable next patch with the turret upgrade.

Just because they accidentally made the Conquerer and the Cent AX any good doesn't mean the british nation can have decent tanks :hiding:

I have that tank and do pretty well in it. The gun is ok due to the DPM although you do rely on loading gold, the amour is usable against lower tier tanks. I play mine very aggressively and pound enemies with the high DPM. Drive it to where the mediums are and just let rip, your HP pool is high for t7 and you can literally trade anything to death. 

 

Its main issue is its size and attracting unwanted arty fire and I don't think it has pref mm either and its poor in t9 games. I've noticed the FV201 ( a45 ) gets partnered against Black Princes a lot and they are quite easy prey for it due to the lack of speed on the BP. 

 

In the OPs post he puts the M56 t7 Scorp US ... surely the T7 German Prem TD  ( Steyr ?? ) is worse than that and I've just sold my Jagdtiger 8.8, even with the recent buff its still garbage. Those 2 german tds are far worse the the T7 Scorp.

Turret armor as top tier on a ride line works rather well. 17 pdr is great when top tier with that ROF, but not ideal in a +1 or 2. 20 prd would make more sense on that one tbh.

M56 Scorp was actually not released originally becuase WG stated "its not good, people wouldent want it" then they sell it anyways coz..well..you know its free money for idiots buying trash (like me) and then buffed the gun stats to be better aimtime. but its still a paper low hp snack with nothing going for it. then they stick a super ultra crap 90mm on literally the worst platform in game.

 

Meanwhile on SU-152...armor..camo... 152mm Doomcannon or the best DPM in tier 122mm. not russian bias or anything right?

What do you mean "it's the last buff it got". Far as I'm aware there is another buff coming yet in the next patch to the FV4202. The turret armour buff that you mention, but also the engine increase horse power buff?

 

I think it needs the engine horse power buff. it drives up steep hills about the same speed as a Lowe. That shouldn't be the case for a medium.

Bad HP/t with good ground stats usualy end up that way.  ok getting around but poor engine power leads to horrible hill climbs.

Well we know that on RU servers the old premiums that they feel most sad about are KV-5 and IS6.

 

As a result WG have decided to fix them as a priority.

 

Problem is WG do not know yet how to fix them.

 

As a result KV-5 and IS6 are the saddest of the old school premium tanks.

  I though the Jagdtiger 8.8 was supposed to be a pretty good premium, one of the better ones for earning credits with due to it's decent front armour that can be used trading shots

Well it's all limited MM tanks on tier 8 actually that they are unsure on how to approach. Inc the T-34-3 even. As most of them do become a topic on just about all the recent Q&A's. Tho the SP and WZ-111 are the only two they never mention. SP have gotten a pen buff to be on pair with most US tier 8 meds. So I have no idea what their plan is there. If any.

My IS-6 is very sad tank at the moment. Just sitting in my garage, gathering dust and reminiscing of the good old days. It was the only Tier VIII Premium I've brought with real money. The only tank I've gotten over 1k battles in. Nowdays, it sees less action then my Super Pershing or my JagdTiger 8.8.

 

A real tragedy !
