I did like Easy 8 much, would this thunderbolt be better credit and experience maker than my M4 improved???

M4 Improved is crap. Thunderbolt is slower than Easy 8, but has better UFP which can be trollish in bouncing enemy shots. Gunhandling is the same as the Easy 8 (my personal opinion). It is my main US (MT) crew trainer. Plus, you get a full 0-skill BiA crew with it, which is very nice. I have bought the Thundrbolt 4 times already just for that reason. 

 

Skorpion vs Skorpion G: I do feel unskinned versions of premium tanks should be slightly cheaper than their skinned counterpart, because you have to spend gold to put camo on them to get the same camo rating. (I know, you can also rent for credits).

It's a tough choice.

 

Do you want to be cannon fodder for tier 8 or tier 10 tanks.

Got both Skorpions and they are great. But no thanks to the sherminator. I might be tempted to buy that upcoming autoreloader French Sherminator . Might …. :sceptic:

Do you want to be cannon fodder for tier 8 or tier 10 tanks.

 

Having nearly 250 standard pen and 500 alpha makes it a little bit less canon fodder than most though. Better a glass cannon than some deluded idea of having some workable armor with a T8 heavy premium instead that both has no armor in truth, vs premium and T9 and T10 and also a sucky gun that can't pen much with standard AP along with bad accuracy and mobility. At least with the SkorpG you can knock the jaw off some tank from across the other side of the map and run away laughing. It's no surprise then that this tank is by far the most sold and popular premium tank in the game with the Progetto a distant second, and we all know how amazing the Progetto is so that should showcase just how highly regarded and effective the Skorp is. 

 

I'd love a SkorpG, I'd take the big size and zero armor for a big accurate fast aiming gun and mobility any day of the week. I have the Russian version, the SU PM something or other. It's a great tank too, again, made of paper, can get wrecked but the damage and kill ratio tells it's own story, and like the skorp, it gets the job done with standard AP in most cases so though vulnerable and can certainly get minced if caught out of position etc, they do what a bottom tier should do better than most all others which is to support and punish and support some more. all while racking up credits. If you're pressing the 2 key you're generally not making credits which imo means there's not really much point buying a premium since you can just play a T9 or T10, these TD's with big alpha and big standard pen, therefore makes sense to me. 

 

Hey WG, I just big up'ed your skorpG which may influence some sales, can I get a free SkorpG now? Thanks, you know it makes sense.

Thunderbolt was one of tanks that i might consider getting and its bia us crew, which as i recall, still only option for that nation. Still, not sure i'll be getting this as i'm not into WoT lately but its good to have this option avaliable once more i guess.

thunderbolt would be excellent if it didn't face tier 8's all the time you know if the mm were decent  instead of this plus 2 nonsense I have both  the skorp g not the best crew in it mind no bia just camo and sixth sense its definitely not fast at aiming also as soon as you fire your spotted and its about as accurate as all Germans in this RNG driven environment manage your expectations the skorp g is ok but really you have to be a fan of td's plus these days if you get something like himmelsderp or paris its going be situational if you do well hell its gonna be situational if you do well in any game just don't expose your self to jap heavy's as the turret is almost autopen for HE

Sad that the crew is its only interest. The pen is laughable for a tank that always meeting tiers 7-8.
