M4 rev sale, s1 sale... its all nice but didn't we have exactly same sales something like month and a half ago?
Meanwhile both NA and RU have LT432 in their shops, in fact NA premium users were able to buy it since 5 days ago. At the same time EU does not even gets pre sale because EU marketing team cant help themselves but play some stupid games with us.

Well, on maps designed for sniping, which are very few, it can be a beast. But on most maps it is more or less useless.

Concealment is very good, unless some soviet light medium is on enemy team resulting in autospot when shooting.
​On city maps: Useless

On mixed maps: Almost useless

Other maps: Less useless, but concealed positions are often ONE bush and as WG has implemented shot direction indicator it is easy to figure out where it is hidden and as it takes 2 seconds to get out of siege mode, it is equal 1-2 hits before you can get into cover.

On top of that, it will often meet guns with a caliber over 90mm, they will autopen no matter angle :arta:.

In very few matches it is fun to play, rest of the matches it is ranging from mmmmmeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhh to utter sh**.

 

And mobility (mountain climbing) has been eliminated, so it is no fun anymore.

Advantages - In Siege Mode there is no Aim Time :) just point the target and shoot, Penetrates almost everything, One of the most accurate snipers, One of the best Cammo, Front armor deflect shells like crazy, Great crew trainer for Tier VII, IX and X, Great credit maker

 

Disadvantages - it is easily flanked by light tanks, it is easily hit by artillery

 

Does it worth it ?  - it is worth it

 

PS City and mixed maps are subject to location -Himmelsdorf for example play on K1 or A1 far from enemy. It does it

If you enjoy wasting your time 4 games out of 5 then buy this tank.
It has no practical use on 80% of maps because you cannot remain unspotted or defend your self once you have been spotted.
Plus arty.

The meta these days is armour, brawling and speed.

This tank has none of those capabilities.

Save your money for something you can have more fun in.

Already have it and its good on open maps but can be disappointing as its tricky to play.

Get on the test server and play a dozen games or so before deciding.

Nice TD have for a long time, its the tank in wich i got the most battles done in...

 

Not for everybody, takes skill to master and do well on those maps where things are stacked against u, since there is only a handfull of maps u can sit on it and snipe, others u need to play more agressive and relocate and get spotted alot, city maps are a nightmare for most ppl, i dislike them but i can still get someting out of them if i do the suport role and stick close to my HT and give them fire suport from their backs.

 

The siege mode its its strong and weak point, it makes it a very good sniper and sneaky but if you are spotted it seens to take forever to leave it and often u either die or get too much damage...

 

But remember, its a premium, even if u die, even if u lose the match, as long as u do your damage u are in the bank all battles wich isnt dificult, i only find it dificult when RNG decides to screw u and ur 288 and 300+ pen doesnt pen even the weakest enemy, but that one, happens with alot of tanks not just this one.

 

If u are willing to put the time to really learn how to play it well, have the patience to sit in a spot for long periods, if u know how to read a minimap and learn the maps so u know how to relocate without getting blown to bits... Then this tank is for u.

Calm down. WG are just putting together the extortionate packages for EU. Can't rush these things.

Truth be said...

 

All these sales all the time, as is... I think have the oposite effect from the desired one.

 

Since special tanks are available in discounts and packs all the time now, they become banal, less desirable, so making one be willing to part ways with money to buy them seens... Waste of time and money!

They should stick to what works and has worken for years, do specials, putt some special tanks and packages on sale, but not all the time, from time to time, yeah i know they want to do money grab to present revenue and profits to share holders, but this in the medium to long term kills that same profit, since ppl get so fed up, that they dont buy anything else.

 

Also even if u got the money and are buying like crazy, u will "burn" the game down pretty quick, since u already did it all, tested it all, done all, so what is the motivation to play on? To spend more? None!!!

And truth be said, they didnt actually got the most out of their buys before they set them aside cause of the next thing that came out...

 

I have several premium tanks, and i probrably play 90% premium tanks and just 10% regular tech tree ones... And some of the ones i have i havent even done 100 battles on them...

Dangerous? really? once its spotted its dead. 390 alpha, no turret, no armor, poor DPM, sluggish as balls for a crippled siege mode tank. literally the most boring camper tank in game. should never have implemented it and the S tank line.

We know that, its kind of oblivious since other servers already have it. No one is worrying IF this tank will be on sale.

Thing is nobody knows what you guys mean by "soon", next day or next week on black Friday special.

Other thing nobody really knows is why and according to what rules some servers are getting different treatment when it comes to new tanks releases.

Bull****, its a great TD and fits everyone who likes a camping TD with a siege mode. Even in city maps there are places where he can perform giving enemy a very small sluet to try and hit at. Even more, its standard ammo pen goes trough anything wit ha few exceptions where you have harder time hitting weakspot at very long ranges.

If you made the pen around the same as other TD's this tank would be the worst teir 8 TD in game. the only thing saving it is the overkilled autopen.

I think this tank can be fun to play. I enjoy it sometimes. It's also great crew trainer. Don't be so negative!
