It's a fairly regular visitor to the premium shop as it's one of WG's guaranteed money makers....maybe 4 times a year, so you shouldn't have to wait too long.

I have the skorpion G, just make sure to have a camo net so you can camp in bushed while it being transparent and still shooting them without them spotting you

I also am interested in this tank.  When I play ...correction when I YOLO my ELC it's always the Scorp G that kills me.  This tank sounds awesome and I want one too.  I can't wait for it to come on sale.

 

Pew pew!

Check out that Skorp's camo after firing is horrible. Calculate that horrible + 15% = still horrible. Mount rammer, binocs, gld and keep an eye out on how close enemy is before firing or fire behind the bush. 

 

OP, Skorp has been on sale all the time. Shouldn't be long till you get it.

The most awesome thing about the Skorpion G is that is has an actual scorpion on the turret.  That's why I got one.

Its on sale regularly (every 1-2 months). 

 

Still wondering when we get the non-skinned version (so I can trade my skinned version in).

IMO you'll be disappointed. It's not good tank, esp. not vs. tier-10, which meets 80% of time.

Good points:

- gun has very good pen and damage for tier-8.

- vehicle's fast. Most of the time this only means you can get in trouble faster.

- decent money-maker.

 

Bad points:

- bad cammo for a TD, very bad after firing. It will be spotted by tier-10 from 400 meters regardless of cammo net and perk. Always fire and retreat in cover. Don't fire if there's no cover where you can hide in next 2 seconds.

- large and tall target,

- no armor at all. HE ammo will eat you alive before you fire next shell,

- slow to turn vehicle and turret,

- sub-average guns' soft stats. Gun likes to troll a lot.

- low HP pool: in battle it's 2-3 shot for most tanks it meets.

- it requires a lot of ahead-thinking and good situational awareness to get good results.

 

All this affects the way it plays. It can lead only if top-tier and vs. lower tiers, which is maybe 10% of battles. Otherwise it needs to stay back at 2nd or even 3rd line and snipe, until about half the opposition (preferably more) is dead.

And when ever i play a paper TDS you bet ya [edited]nobody spots anything.(always get a redline camp team)

Only thing that suprised me its pretty fast ....nice for relocating (but 90%of tds  camps at the same spot all game no matter what happends)

It's in the store more than any non-tech tree premium. I suspect you won't have to wait long. It's been in the store about 60% of the time last year, and had a week off at the most the first year it was out.

It's supposed to be overpowered, yet I can't stand playing the thing. It has a massive profile (so no camo), no armour, really slow turret/tank traverse and the gun is supposed to be accurate but acts Russian. Sometimes fully aimed shots just go into the dirt randomly. Also if people see you, they shoot HE and it's an absolute arty magnet, your HP just goes to 0 as soon as you're spotted.

 

Because of the above, it takes a person willing to camp bush all game, using the mobility to position yourself in the best possible bushes/areas far from the front line to get the most damage possible. That's just not my play style so I tend to die quickly in it.

It’s an amazing tank to make credits with and in the right hands is an absolute beast, able to act as an insanely powerful medium depending on the map and the circumstance. However, be aware that, as already stated, the gun can troll you, it has no armour and the camo is so bad that it can be seen from space. 

 

If if you have a sub-par WR this tank is not going to help you improve but you will make credits even when you lose. If you are a solid player it is a good tank. If you are a very good player the results are awesome. In short, it has a very high skill base requirement but you will make money no matter what.

You wn8 seems to be on the horrible side.

 

By all means buy the Skorpion G when it goes back on sale. They put it on sale numerous times a year. Just dont play it much.

 

Focus on low to mid tiers to get the experience you need to become a better player.

 

You should start with heavily armored tanks to learn the game and improve.

 

Skorpion G is best suited for good+ , experienced players.

 

Tips to get better for you.

 

Play tiers 4-5-6-7 more. Grind HEAVILY ARMORED TANKS FIRST. Then progress to mediums then to TDs then to Light tanks and never play arta.

 

Watch the GAME MECHANICS VIDEOS on youtube from WarGaming channel.

Search on youtube and watch tips and how to improve in world of tanks ,strategy and map guides etc.

Go to Twitch.com and watch unicum streamers how they play the game. If you do it daily it helps.

Suggested streamers (english language) Quickybaby , Dakillzor , SirFoch , Skill4Ltu , Orzanel, Yzne,  Circonflexes and Decha (he doesnt talk).

 

I would provide links for you but its very late at night and im going to sleep.
