Heavy, thick-armoured, and super accurate – this is the Löwe!

crapDPM, but good tank otherwise. The armor now holds if used properly, and can sometimes even troll tier Xs. Gun is accurate, very good pen on standard rounds ... Lowe is in a sweet spot right now.

One of the best Premium tanks you can buy. IMO. I have a few and this one was worth the 40€ actually...

Too bad the run of Tier 7s for "XXX of the week" has come to an end and we go back to the 'regular' Tier 8 of the week...*sigh*... Was hoping we'd be done with that for a while and continued the non-tier 8 of the week format...

Actually it's not.  In fact it's "worth" nearer 4 euros.

 

Here's an explanation ... https://www.associationofprofessionalsales.com/news/sales-psychology-irrational-decisions-champagne-experiment/

 

Read at least as far as :-

Block Quote

... we do not evaluate the choice itself, but are guided, rightly or wrongly, by what we’ve done before. In effect, we are telling ourselves, ‘I have made this decision before; I do not need to go and re-evaluate the situation again. I will bring the past decision to the fore and solve the problem, maybe with a few small modifications’.

 

WG understand this and they've convinced you that a very small amount of Dowloadable Content is worth the price of many FULL Games.

It's how WG become so rich ... over charging.

Got it, it is a hull down beast. Gun is not that accurate as you would expect.

The armor was buffed from being crap that could be penned by tier 6 TDs to a manageable level.

Engine power buffed, the performance increase is not mind boggling, but is certainly better.

Its a Deutche Bundesbank on tracks.

 

If I would have   just 40 euros to spent ever in World of Tanks ,ever ,just this 40 euros,  it would be to buy Lowe.

 

It makes game credit safe because of  its income of credits even if one loses battle or don't hit anything.

 

Its strong tier VIII, and can fight tier IX on equal terms in hull down.

 

It can be also used for sport, since using premium rounds with 294 mm penetration (and it still  earns some credits!)  it can  hunt even  tier X haevy tanks like a  herd of elephants.

It's a great tank but I don't play mine much due to going off HTs. Slightly slow but otherwise great.

 

I waited 6 months for a bare bones 30% discount and it'll likely come again whether via a personal coupon or a WG discount.

The more bundles you add the less im incline to spend on this game and since your tanks are worth the price of full game i rather buy something elese

Btw "brilliant" marketing bundles only.... its so 2015

Have it, and the French 105, i do like the tank but I can never figure out why if I get penned from the front, my engine gets damaged, as far as i know this is the only tank with that trait.

​I guess its because it has strongest mantlet in the game so them made some balance weakness.

Lower plate is relatively thin and behind it is engine gear mechanism ( basically a clutch),so  if you get penetrated trough lower frontal plate it counts often as engine damage to.

 

So tip is hiding its low frontal plate or preferably entire hull and freely show front of its master race turret  dirrectly for enemy to see it very well and aim well because you want  enemy never to miss your mantlet , which btw can not be penetrated by any tank in the game dirrectly unless lucky shot.The mantlet prints additional credits and experience from bounces , even from tier X tanks.

 

Arty is annoying of course even in hull down, but that's the problem of any tank.
