WG released the unskinned version of the AM 13 57GF a while ago. Last week they released the unskinned version of the leKpz 41 90 mm GF (Blackdog). What was great about both offers was the opportunity to trade in your GF version for the unskinned one. Skorpion G on sale in the premium store now, but no unskinned version / nor the opporunity to trade the G-version in? Why not?? #justwondering

You are thinking logically...this is not how WG operates.

You do know the standard Skorpion already exists, right? :v

Seems shady, looks like they just removed turret cross and copy paste my design, and since i posted before you, it must be truth, you know it.   

 

Seriously, expect it to be release free in some gold bundles....

I'd rather they shave something off the price than something off the skin. 40E for a bloody tank just remains too rich for my tastes. Suppose from WG's perspective we should be lucky they're selling that OP piece at all.

Its not like you have to wait a year to save up for it, since its on sale every 2 months... You'd think anybody that wants it has it by now...

Probably because they know it would make people happy especially with Frontline still on.

Considering wargaming seems to be with the attitude no fun allowed go to gulag and pay us for staying there, mentality right now im not really surprised.

Don't mind the scorpion that much but this thing seems to be on sale every 2 weeks pretty much, they should just add it to the main store now and stop making a fuss of it.

I mean I had issues with the EU server be and we had our fair share of controversies, but this much contempt is a new level honestly.

I do think they will sell it the week just after frontline to make sure everyone feels maximally trolled.

Maybe even write a think because we demanded it here is, leaving out everyone wanted it in frontline and were the only ones to not get to play it there.

Is it actually overpowered, or is it just one of the most annoying tanks in the game because the game design allows it to sit beyond spotting distance and snipe - ignoring all disadvantages inherent in the Skorpion. Won't deny it is strong, but it is arguably a child of the meta. RHM's performing on par with it last time I checked - not particularly convincing for a premium tank (usually overperforming by 1-2% just because it's a premium).

RAAC for Tankfest is supposedly the rumor. Regardless, it is sort of a 'problematic' tank because it's a flat-out improved Centurion without any disadvantages beyond the removed side skirts - which are rumoured to have some 'interesting' effects when it comes to normalization and overmatch.

If they sell the RAAC, they might as well go ahead and buff the 'Black' versions of the Mutz, IS-6 and T34 before selling them again.

More or less did. Kind of like how they gave away the non-skinned Patriot during Christmas. Now I have both a non-skinned and skinned Patriot. Wargaming's got some real weird thinking at times. Unless it's intended to appear stupid. It's working.

You could paint that tank with radioactive fluorescent green and put 6 flags on long antennas, it’s camo could not get worse than it currently is.

You can even equip it with Predators cloaking device, but when that gun fires you are spotted as if there is a Dumbo flying above you popping fireworks from his ar$e.

Oh, and don’t get me even started on that 0.28 gun. That cr@p has a small aim circle, but  the shell dispersion distribution is reversed so it shoots towards the edges. And shells have steel-dodging force field. 

Don’t buy it, its a good tank. I play it a lot, love to hate it with passion. One day when WG makes one that is called "Cкорпион Г" we can start talking... :sceptic:

Yeah isn't it odd that the Skorpion G has been on offer several times this year, but we are not allowed the Defender, strange, very strange.

That's a rare tank for a reason. It has the T14 gun. With +2 MM. Imagine playing the Matilda IV vs tier 7 all day, not in a 3-5-7. But just vs tier 7. That's more or less how good that tank is even as top tier or in an equal tier game. I won it and still don't play it much.

I can’t see a single reason why not. I generally find all colored images on tanks a bit off. For me, Patton KR / Skorp G / Guard / Defender are borderline acceptable, Mutz, Fury and IS-2 are just fine, Patriot and Liberte similar are over the top.

If you think about it, as long as anyone in WW2 would be able and would actually paint a tank with some images or text - than that is acceptable. Sure, there might be examples of this and that, and this game is not purely representing/simulating real tanks, but WG has proven that ppl are interested and has enabled them removing skins from several tanks in the past, so there could be an option for the rest.

I guess because it's the most sold premium tank probably. In comparison, way less players had the GF tanks compared to the Skorpion G. They have to make a system to do it automatically or it will take a lot of people a lot of time to handle all the requests
