...of Skorpion G hitting up the Advent Calendar this year?

 

You guys think it's going to happen? Did it appeared last year?

 

I really wanted to buy either skorp or patriot, but idk how good or bad is patriot, i never had problemes facing one, only if it was hull down. So idk wich one of these 2 is better, i only have preferention on TDs.

 

 

Any idea guys?

 

P.S: Does Patriot have Pref MM?

 

Thanks

There's a very good chance I'd say.

 

Or you can try your chance with the loot boxes, but I wouldn't recommend that.

 

The Patriot does not have pref. MM.

Probably will show up and no, the patriot/T26E5 does not have preferred mm. it’s OP enough without it.

It's is almost a certainty that the G will be in the calender. If not it WILL be in the january sales (pretty much every rare premium will be up for at least 24 hours)

I bet my [edited]that SkorpionG is going to be sold in the Advent. It's been sold around 10 times since August 2016. At some point WG were selling it twice in a month.

 

Personal review(I do mean personal) :

 

SkorpionG is fast but made of rice-paper. It seemed fantastic last year but then I started missing an alarmingly big number of shots so I stopped playing it. My connection was iffy though...

Patriot has a great turret. Its lower plate is trash, so try not to expose the hull if you can. Gun accuracy reminds me of T32. The reload time is amazing for a 90mm gun but the accuracy is not.

If it's not in the calendar. I'm fairly sure it will appear in the end of the year sales. That thing has been on sale more so then anything the past year. And was more or less on for 5 out the first 6 months after it came. So if not... then it's not far off either way.

Honestly as a direct comparison the Patriot is a more "noob-friendly" tank, good armour, semi decent mobility, decent gun. A good all rounder, with a very forgiving playstyle.

 

The Skorpion G is very strong, however a single mistake in any game will lead to instant death 99.99% of the time. The gun is excellent, great penetration even on the standard rounds (246mm) that will penetrate any tier X with ease and a good reload time (10s) and great APCR premium rounds which have around 310mm pen. It does however require a good deal of skill to play well in, particularly with positioning. It has poor camo for an unarmoured tank destroyer and you will be spotted at long range by scouts/medium tanks. Once you fire you are almost certain to be seen.

You will rack up damage very quickly with the absurd alpha (often hitting high 500s) and as a rough guide, each shot you penetrate will net you around 15k profit (2k games give around 60k)

 

IN summary, for a player looking to play well and improve The Patriot.

 

For someone looking to run around the map derp slappping anything and everything for a good laugh it's got to be the Skorpion G. 300+ games in mine and I have never once regretted it.

I'm quite partial of the AMX M4 49 myself. It's a sturdy allrounder with a good gun.

Keep the cupola in mind, though. It's entirely possible for a KV-2 to lob a HE round through those 60mm armor. It would be OP without the weakpoint, though.

 

If it should happen to come on sale, the Object 252U has proven itself to be very powerful at tier 8. But I wouldn't be surprised if WG keep it out of the shop much as they did the Type 59.

There's no such thing as a tier 8 tanks that's GOOD vs tier 10. If there were such a tank, it'd be completely overpowered for tier 8.

 

But with 230/259 penetration, the Patriot does better than many other tier 8 prem tanks.

 

Excepting the TDs, only the Löwe does much better with 290 pen on its premium rounds.

vs tier X most tier VIII tanks with "good armour" see their undoing. Personally i've always preferred mobility and a gun vs much armour. The alpha damage of the Patriot is where it really sees it's downfall even in tier VIII. It's not great terrible for trading since most heavies of the same tier deal 2x or more damage than you so you will come undone very quickly. The armour is also not exceptional (although extremely strong vs tier VIII and IX mediums and lights) heavies will tear holes in it no problem.
