It's a garbage tank tbh, overall and in the present meta; i am going for the Foch B but i'm not buying this.

 

It is fast, low profile, good gun depression, amazing shell velocity and good overall mobility (but not traverse because it's sniper).

 

However, limited tank traverse with not so great armor and low dpm force you into a calculated game where you stay behind bushes that cover main pipes/entrance points .... bushes that tend to get removed. Pen is not so great for a sniper .... 260 with AP would have been awesome, and 260 apcr with a turret would have been good too, but 260 pen with apcr on a tank with bad traverse speed and limited gun traverse arc is ... meh.

Only good thing it has for it is the mobility and some camo .... try to make that work on Ensk, Windstorm, Kharkov, Mines ... etc. ; because the armor is only good if you use 'all' your gun depression and even then it does not cover all the front.

 

At least the WZ has the dpm/track traverse/front armor to get out of bad situations .... this tank is just meh, can't believe it's sold for the same price as the Skorpion G.

 

PS: At least the kanonenjagdpanzer has awesome speed .... what does this have ?

It is very annoying how many tier 8 prems they bring out and so consistent as well, its just ruining tier 8 MM because most the teams are more premium then not :/

Quickybaby says the player base is dwindling. I guess this is why WG are spamming us with premium tanks after premium tanks. Get as much money as you can. If i would be them my priority would be to bring these HD maps out, get the second season of personal missions out and make it more appealing for new players. One idea could be to unlock all tier 1 to 3 tier tanks of all nations if you create a new account.

I mean, why would you play tier 8 unless you need credits in the current mm? I'm grinding my 110 in SHs...

Ultimate packet is advertised as having 30 bonus missions, but in reality has only 15.:(

At least it's not another Russian tier VIII Premium tank...

 

But who cares?

 

Most of you will buy or already bought this tank, so why you whining here so much?

 

Simple solution would be just IGNORE WG and DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THEIR SHOP.

 

But that will never happen...

Such a shame. Could have been a great TD. Got to love how the roof is 40mm too. Hmmmmmmmmm don't a lot of Russian tanks get a 122mm canon.
 

 

Far better off just ticking that box on normal elite tanks and boost crew training. Play the Skorpion for credits.

 

The new WZ TD just wrecks this. More alpha with far better DPM to boot.

This TD is based around its camo. Sit back and farm. But how many maps allow it?


And that's the problem.

Let me just quote WG's own words, spoken here: https://www.facebook...59422905185377/
0:45 "We don't want to be pay to win, we never will."

 

And then let's look at the WoT reality:

 

 

Dear WG - are you really so sure that short-sighted P2W tricks and sacrificing the game balance is best for the game and your long-term income?

 

I've uninstalled the game few months ago and I've still seen no single message from WG that would confirm they're going to end P2W and start caring about fair play and game balance. Sell more OP premium tanks, keep ignoring premium shell spammers, add more super-heavies - yeah, that will make WoT worth playing. I'll just quote Deming here: "It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.".

To be fair that just highlights the need for the Foch B's pen to be increased.

I just bought it and its a great little tank, until you get circled...when you get humiliated.. You can bounce few shots, even those of equal tiers.

 

Be aware that this thing earns less than expected... about 70% of that what I usually get with STRV S1!

Yup. That's one of their P2W tricks - they keep penetration of normal shells in tanks like Foch B or E100 pretty low, so people have to shoot premium shells more often - which messes up the balance even more, as premium shells are usually pretty OP. And if you're low on credits or gold due to spamming expensive shells - here's Fort Knox for you. But that's the WG way - as long as number of people supporting P2W with their wallets remains high they're going to continue their milking tricks at the sacrifice of the game balance.

Thanks no more money for you.

Dont feed broken RU Games anymore.

 

superdataresearch.com, tells same story wg just try milk because they lost so much of income this year.

 

"a free t-shirt and goodie bag!" better go and speed money in a new team.

I like TDs but I also have short arms and deep pockets, Scottish you know, so even though it looks interesting no thanks.

 

LOL mate, you made my day, I love your comment.

 

Thank You.

 

By the way, about the tank, it looks real pretty, but sorry WG, I don't have the additional money to buy it, I just bought the FV4202 ... and as a Greek that I am, my budget is very limited.

So some of you guys are moaning that a TD has good penetration... are you serious? If Foch B had a higher penetration then it would be considered OP, right now Foch B is likely to bounce a shot or two off your tank and won't clip you in one go...

 

But here's me, waiting for the Kanonenjagdpanzer buff... if they do release the 390 alpha version of it then there's no point in buying this AMX, I don't need any more clones in my garage so I'll pass.
