how many new players will buy this and then realise it doesn't have a G on the end?

I've watched videos on this awful tank. Could have been brilliant but WG really don't like tanks that aren't heavies.

Aging Jedi put his video up yesterday. Followed in the now well trodden pattern. Horrendous tank. No fun. Pointless. However he did seem convinced it wasn't the finished article and it worked be getting buffs before release. Obviously not.

Prepare for the whine threads!!!!!!!!!

 

*EDIT

Ha ha ha ha. I read the title and convinced myself that it was the ELC EVEN. Should have actually clicked on the link. Well I'm not deleting my post. It can serve as a lesson for me to activate my brain before my fingers.

Bought it 6 months ago. Now, I suck at TDs in general, and no armour I can deal with since I play a lot of LTs, but the bloom on this thing is really bad as well as the gun traverse speed. If they buffed both the aimtime and traverse speed it would be ok. Pen is really good though, no problems penning T9s. Also a crap TD crew trainer though since only a couple of US TDs have 4 man crews like this thing. (Which is odd since its so small, even 4 seems a lot lol.) Considered trading it in when they had the vehicle trade-in special, but that was only for T8s and this thing is T7...

Should have know this was going to be it... since i blew something up last night that i hadn't seen before.  :)

 

I am probably not the first to notice that any "new" specials/premiums tend to be played on EU about 12 to 24 hrs before "release"?

 

Since Europe does not have huge timezone differences   -it's not that Krakow is 12hrs ahead of Brussels-   these must be some kind of "pre-releases".  For reviewers? For "special" customers? Staff? Shareholders? For Kim Jong-un and his staff of trusted generals?

Its a challenge to play and there are bad points but also some good ones.

Played it in a test possibly on this or more likely the NA server where you can earn the right to rent vehicles for 24 hours.

 

Problems with it then still remain, its extremely fragile you can earn a credit bonus just from the times friendly tanks accidentally bump into you.

The gun flops around in an uncontrolled manner a lot of the time at least when moving, the real vehicle probably locked the gun while moving so its a compromise.

I doubt this was ever intended to fire on the move.

Speed is ok Gun pen is good premium pen is excellent gun depression also great.

 

Its still an old school TD find a spot stay hidden "its great at that" shoot the enemy to bits.

For it to be competitive it needs a boost and all I can think of is a real maneuverability boost.

You cannot afford to get overrun or chased down this vehicle needs light tank performance to get out of trouble.

Do that and the gun limitations can remain if not then you really need to tighten up on the gun bloom and make the gun move predictably.

 

Crew is 4 man and that is a big problem almost all the American TDs have 5 man crews some its a radio operator later ones have 2 loaders.

Its ok for the tier 7 8 and 9 none turreted TDs but none of the others.

I am not sorry I bought it as it wasn't that expensive and US tanks didn't have much in the way of premium vehicles "they still don't" hint hint.

Not really "new", since I got mine 6 months ago. ;) But its not a tank you see a lot, so maybe you just met it for the firsttime yesterday...

I think this tank is very dangerous ambusher.


I remember been drained from full health to the funeral by someone in  this and could not see it.


Strangely I also do not remeber I sough one of this in battle alive( in enemy team), becouse If he is lited on the map (spoted), he is already dead  .
 

I think I will buy it this time, true underdog and unique experience.

Avoid getting hit at all costs since even the shockwave of friendly artillery firing next you will damage you. ;)

 

Oh, and its a ram-magnet too, so relocate asap when the action gets too close.

When are you going to sell the Kanonenjagdpanzer? Haven't been on sale for ages (6 months?), or are you testing the 105mm on it?

No doubt that it *can* be a fun tank to play... if you are a bit of a masochist

 

Hide, snipe, relocate.. seems like a lot of dangerous work on small almost-no-cover maps and also some HeavyTanks having a view/detection range larger than LightTanks.

 

Then again.. there are still a lot of players in T-VII & T-VIII that can't find their own behind even when given an instruction video and a mirror...

....hmmm, tempting after all.  :trollface:
