Actually not bad tanks. T92 could use a DPM and / or pen buff. Dont own the Lowe (have the Tiger 131 already as my German HT trainer) but it looks like a good tank, even in todays meta.

Really poor value considering.....for the cost of renting these pixels ....you could get 3 or 4 full AAA games on the current steam summer sale!


 

WG really need to let us know the direction they are going to take with our previously purchased expensive PMM tonks tbh before I spend another penny on this game.

You do realize that you are renting those games too, right? I'm not trying to defend WG, but you don't own anything in other games too... they can ban you whenever they want to for whatever reason.

 

 

I'm probably in the minority, but I'm happy with the PMM changes, because I have a T26E4 that's just collecting dust in my garage, I haven't played a battle with it for months. So 2 options after the change:

- it becomes viable so I can finally use it in 3/5/7

- I can trade it for a better tank

I enjoy both but I got Lowe with 30% off.

 

T92 is what I can only assume is a slightly more sensible T8 LT than the Even 90. As I don't own the French tank. It's lots of fun to zip around on and the gun is a pretty epic shooter with auto aim at long range.

T92 is a fun tank to play but for that alpha (150) on tier 8 it needs a base DPM of 2500.

Your "pew pew" gun, while having fantastic handling, will not put a dent in anything fast and since this is a game about doing damage (there is no other way to win unless you cap (if you hate credits/xp)) you need to be able to put proper damage out.

 

Traditionally low alpha guns have almost always had higher DPM then higher alpha guns in this game.

WG dident get the memo that low alpha pea shooters need DPM to be competative. just look at tier 8 mediums with there crappy single shot pop guns with bearly 2k dpm while same tier heavys have around 1.8k+ with almost twice the alpha.

Sorry mate this isn't true (no salt intended)....check out the steam eula compared to the wot eula. You own the steam game and can transfer it to another hard drive even if you like.

Put another way...if WG shut down their server.....bye bye pixel collection.....but if you have backed up your steam collection you still own and can play them.

You are right about having your account rights withdrawn.....but if you have backed up your steam games you can still play a lot of them offline.....but I do understand what you are trying to say. Respect.

 

 

Oh by the way WG, please bring back Frontlines where these tier 8's can be competative.

That's actually what I was thinking. I missed out on the KV-2R and the STG.  Both of them I Really wanted buy. Really!!  But I'm not spending another euro till WG is going to be clear on their policy. So please WG What are you going to do! Please let us know!!

Can you use it in 357?

...and you can trade it for "better" tank...if you pay some more gold (about half prise of the actual tank)...

So yes...with your brain activity, you are minority...

Defender is old hat.

 

Everyone is waiting for the new Polish T 51.

Lowe has armour on the UFP and mantlet.

 

Apart from that, between it and the Tiger II, I can't decide which one's the most pathetic.

 

T92 is slow and the reload should be within 3s with a small caliber gun.

In game ad says 'The beauty and the beast'

Lowe is good looking tank, but calling it a beauty is a stretch IMHO.

Mb try with 'The prince and the frog' :)

It was good in Frontlines tbh where its armour helped a lot compared to normal matches where you're meeting T9-10.

Isnt it named 50TP prototyp? Also, Defender still got more armor. I checked both of them in tanks.gg. 50TP got ~180mm effective armor on lower plate, also when side scraping it got those weak hatches or what they are called, they have ~110 mm effective armor.. so, i dont know if 350mm eff. upper plate will be effective.. maybe only when using that tank on ridgeline.
