It was sold not long ago. I would imagine for some special sometime in the future.

I would expect most tanks to be sold shortly after 1.0 comes out - WG want an influx of new (and returning) players so they will have to let encourage them to spend their money on the cool tanks that they see a lot of other players playing.

Skorpion is sold more or less regulary every 2-3 months. However WG doesn't give you much leads what will be on sale in the future, so you'll have to keep your eyes open, no planning ahead.

It's been on sale more then any store only tier 8 prem. With only short breaks. I suspect it won't change soon.

It's sold like every few weeks so I dont think you will have to wait for very long.

 

It's the most played tank in the game anyway, so obviously it has to have somewhat good accessibility.

I liked this comment because it's so bad, I had to laugh.

Inevitably. Seems to be one of those they put for sale whenever the Moon base needs some work done.

are you sure that you want one? I bet that after you will get one, there is going to be another thread with you crying how underpowered and bad it is. i hope you know that it has same camo rating as jagdtiger and its definitelly not fun to play without skilled crew( i know it because i grinded a crew on it from 0). If you are dreaming about wrecking everything on the battlefield without an effort, than its not for you, better wait for another defender sale.

I didnt know it was that bad? I heard it had like good gun and nice mobility, so i thought why not.

well it is good, but on maps that we have it  takes quite some effort to do reasonably well in it. gun is really accurate only on paper, when you actually play its very similar to grille 15, missing fully aimed shots way to often in a tank that is supposed to be one of the best snipers in game.

 

I mean if you really want it, go for it, you will still farm credits, cause it has high alpha dmg gun, after all its your money.

It isn't a bad TD, it is just not easy to play well. Sure, you can set up and hit someone for 500 HP, but you can die seconds later if you don't have your wits about you.

 

- Camo is not good for a TD. You cannot rely on it. And if you are hidden, the first time you fire your gun will give your position away on most occasions. 

- Zero armour, so you take damage all the time and HE really, really hurts. Keep this in mind once you are spotted. You cannot sit there. Factored in with the camo, always make sure you have an escape route when you do take up a sniping position.

- Speed is great, when driving in a straight line. It turns like a beached whale so you lose speed quickly when turning and it has a massive turning circle.

- Turret and hull traverse is awful. If you get rushed by a light tank then it is pretty much GG. You will struggle to keep up with it if it circles you. In this regard it is like a heavy tank. Even meds can and will out turn you.

- The gun stats are deceiving. It WILL miss fully aimed shots. 

 

But when the gun does work for you and you get a good map, it is a monster. It rarely needs premium ammo and with the high alpha it can make nice credits. The mobility does allow you to relocate where other TDs will struggle and you can keep up with mediums if they start pushing a flank, allowing you to keep pilling on the damage. You can try some cheeky aggressive plays at the start of the game using the speed, such as racing to a corridor and quickly whacking someone for 25 - 50% of their HP before withdrawing. For example, you can reach the banana alley on Himmelsdorf before any heavy and pre-aim the corner, thumping the first tank that pokes.

Exactly this, they will have Wot 1 events and discounts. Maybe some rare ones again.
