This time the tank is actually decent. I suck in the STA-2 but it is my fault as the tank is actually good.:)

 

Erm, lol at 31% discount @ Fort Knox, an offer made for Shishx? :hiding:

Less playing time + plenty of regular lines to grind = wallet closed. (Even though it is a tempting tank compared to some of the previous ones that were for sale.)

 

BTW: How long is this Pudel thing going to be on sale for???

I'd like to try this tank but if I buy it I guarantee 10 mins later they will add something like the defender to the shop.

So October is a German tank premium month?

 

Block Quote

 Also included is the Pz.Kpfw. B2, a rare German Premium heavy tank

 

So rare its back after one week, are you kidding? 

 

Still waiting for the woodpecker (AMX 13 57G) and Patriot or T14 (need to train my crew).
Guess i will have to wait until the Christmas sale? 

 

Until then #walletclosed

Thank is actually decent and I do play it regularly, I make about 50k credits and around 80 in same tier or few tier 9 games. That said I wouldn't buy it and wait for something different.

Uhm...I usually don't post my personal opinion under these offers because people will accuse me that I simply want to convince them to buy the tank (understandable), but I simply like the STA-2 so I have to come to its defense :) This is one of my favorite Tier mediums and it is always fun to play. Actually it is one of my stress relief tanks :)

I have to back you up on this one.

 

STA-2 is a fantastic tank, even with the new premium that are coming. Its one of, if not the best tier 8 mediums (Excluding Lorr 40t as play style is different) 

 

-Good mobility

-Good pen on standard 

-Fantastic HEAT pen for the bottom tier matchups or when there is a defender :hiding:

-Fantastic gun depression

-Decent enough armour for what it is. The tank isnt supposed to have loads of armour but it isnt made out of complete paper like CDC, in top tier you can go hull down using gun dep and can bounce a decent amount with the gun mantlet.

 

If anyone is thinking about buying it i would fully recommend it, Also fantastic for making credits.

 

It went from being one of the most underwhelming Prems when it came out, but with the buffs its now one of the best

So far got 60 games in it, bought quite some time ago, before the buffs. While it is a paper tank, it is also rather sneaky and I tend to have pretty good games in it.

Oddly enough it gets spotted less often than other mediums, like the STG. Gun handling is pretty good, workable pen. It is actually worth the money.

 

It's not an OP Defender that just goes face front and shoots, or OP Skorpion G or AMX Cda 105 or Strv S1 that just camp and snipe with incredible pen from the other side of the map.

The guys in WG have no human logic. They put this poor tank in tier 10. The only premium tier 8 tanks that can be in tier 10 are the cloned IS-7 hidden in Defender and the other model, the T34 and maybe Scorpion G. All the rest should see only tier 9.

What a joker you are. You say this tank is good? Look at the facts. Look tier 8 and 9. Look how many tanks we have that you always have to use gold to damage. What's the point to play a premium tank when you have to use gold. All those money making tanks should not see tier 10 at all BECAUSE tier 8 and 9 at this point have already very well armoured tanks. Type 4, so many VK in tier 9, then you have little maus in tier 8. At this moment, tier 8 are suffering from match making very badly.

 

Yeah, waste your money on something you will hate.

Tier 8 MM is horrid, rendering most of the tier 8 premium tanks almost useless. Do not buy tanks until MM is fixed is my advice.
