You will stand out on the battlefield in a Panther 8.8 even though it's available 24/7, so that would be my recommendation.

Sorry to break it to you, but you bought your Skorpion G for the wrong reasons then.

Its not a unique tank whatever it is if it were you would have the only one.

What you might have is a limited edition tank but unless its numbered and signed its not even that.

So go on what semi unique tank do you have that others are now getting.

 

You know wargaming have an easy answer to this if you produce a tank like say the M6A2E1 Mutant which was part of a limited edition package all you needed to do was give it a special camo finish.

Then in the future if you decide to sell the tank you sell it without that finish or you change the model slightly anything really so the original is still valued as a prize tank.

Yeah - Panther 8.8 is a perfect tank to stand out, it's so OP that most players feel it would be unfair to buy and play it so you see very few of them.

 

Skorpion G is a more complicated matter cause it has a paintjob so you can't paint it pink to stand out in the crowd.

Should have bought a Tog, don't see to many of them or if you really want a special tank there's always Churchill GC, they are super rare can't figure out why though.....:)

Same goes for STA-2, I think.

Yep, and if he paints it pink with yellow/ sand colored tracks and gun he'd stand out even more.

You have the Skorpion G... It's been in the store about 95% of the time since it came. And been offered more then any non tech tree premium ever. It's the least special tier 8 premium there is tbh, as it's a rather common sight, and have been since it came. It never had the pleasure of being special that way besides the paint job. Your Panther 88 is more rare and special then that one, as there are 80 000 more Skorpions on EU.

 

So them selling it for the 15th time now won't make much of a difference on it's "special" factor. It's population is the 5th highest of any tier 8 premium on EU according to wot-news.com. Only beaten by 4 old timer premiums like the IS-6, Pak 43, Lowe and T26E4. And the CDC. It's even beating most normal tier 8 tech tree tanks in population like the T28. It's a store only premium. Most of those will be sold more then one time if they sell well. So you should not expect "special" when buying those if they sell well. And the Skorpion does.

 

So if you want a rare and special premium? Buy the IS-6B next time it's on sale. Only 6K of those on EU. And thus I suspect you won't see that sold many times either as not many was interested in it.

I vote they sell the Skorpion for gold in tech tree with no paint job - who's with me? :trollface:

When I see someone with low battle count driving a tier 8 premium tank... You are sure to stand out! 

Get Object 260 from campaign - it seems quite prestigious.
