I don't enjoy getting my [edited]kicked in my is-6 and turret buttered in the t34. It's time for an opremium.

I don't have either but I think the answer to your question is "yes".

It really depends on your playstyle and how good you are with both.

If you do well in the Patriot you should probably use it as it has less cost per shot damage.

If not, go for Skorpion, since it is easier to play in my opinion and you don t have to face a heavy counterpart in the MM.

Patriot will do well on any map. Skorpion will be more map dependent but with greater scope to dish out huge damage on the right maps.

As far as I am aware, it's called the 'Paytriot' for a reason but I can't make mine work.

I have both. Patriot is better by far for farming credits but I find Skorpion G more fun. There is nothing like slapping tier 10s with 500 damage.

 

Patriot is cheaper to run. 255 credits for 240 damage while with SG you pay 1070 credits for 490 damage. Patriot is as cheap to run as it can get. Is on par with CDC and cheaper then STA 2 for example.

Beside, SG is very situational while Patriot can bounce some stuff.

Never buy a patriot. It's an over hyped piece of trash. Skorpion is way better, more enjoyable to play and can really punish. The patriot is neither a heavy nor a medium. The gun doesn't have the alpha or the accuracy to do anything. Imagine tickling a tier 10 (which you will meet often) with a 240 damage (if you don't roll for 198!). Comparing both tanks is wrong but for the sake of credit making i find the skorpion way better. After a few thousands battles you will get bored of course as the game play is quite passive but that's the same for every other tank.

Skorpion. Patriot is overhyped. Is it good? yes OP? na. Both will make alot of credits but if getting your turret penned in the T34 bothers you, Patriot turret cheeks and cupola are penned alot. and the gun is quite unreliable, misses easy shots all the time. and armour isnt even that good

Tier 8 tanks see a lot of tier 10 battles these days. Scorpion has better gun for damaging tier 9 and 10 enemies. And damage = credits.

Skorpion G is you feel comfortable playing paper TD than has no camo, but good mobility and nice boomstick gun. This is a better tank for great players.

 

Patriot / T26E5 if you like US heavies. This is better tank for average / beginner players.

Damn people , what you like and what is actually best might not be the same. I like Skorpion G and is one of my go to tanks for farming credits because is fun while I skip Patriot most of the time.

But Patriot is like printing money. Just take a look on vbaddict. 

 

Memory can be a selective thing. I guess most of you forget about the games when your SG gets spotted in a bad position and you die in less than 3 seconds with barely any damage done. I know you have those kind of games because I do too. So lets not pretend :)

Depends on how you look at it, if you do 3 shots/pens in the skorpion you already did 1500 dmg. The patriot needs way more shots for that. So considering the 'average' players fires only a couple of shots every single battle, skorpion could be better. What won't help if you yolo your skorpion into the frontlines which you see happen very often as well, that's not how it's meant to be played.
