So is the FV4202 (P) the Tier VIII of the 6 days then? I thought the next tier 8 of the week announcement was due tomorrow morning?

The premium is nice but there's no point in playing the tech tree, so there's that.

True and true :)

 

Basicly same principle as the newest french T8 premium TD. Good tank. Suspect tech tree.

Strange that it doesn't swarm the server.

It is as Op as the defender.

3.4k dpm ?

Check.

0,33 acc ?

Check.

440 alpha ?

check.

good pen ? (247/310/61)

check.

good armor (12/80/45) ?

check.

decent power to weight ?

15,87.

check.

decen top and reverse speed ? (50/20)

check.

good traverse ? (48°;)

check.

good camo values ?

49,55/8,92

31,33/5,64

check.

good view range ?(380 m)

check.

(if you go full view range+crew stats you get it up to 470 meters)

 

All in all it is a better T9 td than the 263 at t8.

I think where it falls down for many players is that the tech tree isn't popular, so less useful than a Skorp, and even with the good traverse it's still mincemeat if it gets over-run, while the Skorp's turret gives it an advantage in this respect. However, I have to say it's one of my most played TD's. Mine isn't maxed out on view range yet (cmdr's recon skill is 91%), and I've got 470m already without whatever the Chinese rations are called. Your DPM is a little high in my opinion though....mine is 3263 with BIA, rammer and Vents,

My setup.

Also it is even good in cq cause traverse and nice frontal armor+quick reload.

But best choice is still long range and not to get spotted.

ah crap ~~

 

camo values are

49,55/8,92

31,33/5,64

 

Also gunner will get deadeye once the skill is 100%

Because the Defender is a crutch, even "bad" players can "perform well" in it.   

Whereas this needs more skill to perform well in it. It is a lot less forgiving as the Defender.

 

And as others said, the tech tree is a bit meh, although the low tier ones can be monsters :)  But there is nothing there in the top tier worth the grind unless you want to specialise in them or just want all of the T-X from every tree :)

I have to ask how can you compare this with a Defender, surely the Defender is a different beast altogether, as it is meant as a brawler no? This is a TD, about the only other TD I know that can go and brawl is the Object 268v4 which I am reliably informed by someone who-has one, is not as OP as people say.

 

Please correct me on this if I am wrong.

Great TD. One of my best for Exp. I remember I did my 15 TD mission for T28 Concept in it. 

When the crew is skilled - 4, 5 skills it does great spotting and great credits on top

 

I was wondering when WG will release some heavy tanks - Mauerbrecher, Somua SM etc

 

Also there are lots of additions for light/medium tech lines. How about something new arty's - Chinese arty is a good candidate for example

 

And also new US or USSR arty line wold be good

"Premium of the day offer"...

Now WG offers you the possibility to open your wallet every day!

Everyday you have the chance to buy a T8 premium and discover the joy of T8 MM!

I have it ~  couple years ago with the old Maps it was surprisingly good and fun to play it bounced a lot of shots off that sloped front and its quite mobile relocating is easily done 

the gun has a long aim time - and with a 4 skilled crew it 'was' a bit of a beast back then, at T6 it was frankly OP  (however with 3-5-7 MM you will never get T6 MM,  just T10 MM nowadays 

 

Now? new HD maps with few real TD places to position it, just WG TD designated areas (?) its limited without a turret, also its good Camo values are useless unless it has a place to use its Camo values, new HD maps are not

TD friendly as much the old SD Maps used to be ~ the German T8 Skorpion is a far more versatile TD as it has a huge advantage 'a rotating turret' so not so dependant on WG HD brawling flat corridor HD Maps

 

The gun is awesome! if you can get to use it fully

Tank is good, but before buying any tier 8 premium, one must ask himself: "do I really want to fight against tier Xs and IXs almost every battle in this thing?"

Wargaming must get very desperate to put day by day tanks on sale... It seems selling is easy since all stupids buy them but fixing the game is not that important.
