The one day special currently in the store for £8.51. This is a Tier V Medium Tank.

(https://eu.wargaming...specials/11421/)

 

What does everyone think about this offering?

 

Personally whilst I do not dislike the design I can not justify spending money on this versus, for example, the Panther 8.8, as I feel the latter would serve me better in the long term.Collector's Gem: Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. K

its not a tank that will carry games. but if you are looking for a challenge its the right puppy to pick.

thats why i like it, limited ammo, poor gun handling, no armor, +2mm. HardCore mode activated :izmena:

Gem? Must be why we see so "many" of them. I've not played it. But I suspect it died out fast the other times they sell it for a reason. Normally you see new premiums affect the MM for a few weeks like the King Tiger atm. This... I saw it the first day, did not see a single one the next day or any following days until it was sold again. And then I did only see one. Not see a single one since, nor today.

 

As even vs the Turan that most see as the worst tier 5. It's way worse. 103 pen? That can't work out well in the current meta. And the issue most have with the Turian III is the low shell capacity. As it has "only" 3500 potential damage if you connect each shot. This has 40 shells, 8 more than the Turan. So 4400 potential damage. For a comparison that's less than half of most tier 5's As most normal tier 5's are at around the 9K mark. Some even up to 13K. So if you get it... don't waste your shots on blind fire etc. And with 103 pen, you are bound to get a few troll bounces that will mess you up even more late game.

 

So honestly? Sounds like a hard pass. Even the 88 seems like a good choice vs it.

 the Panther 8.8,  Also not worth the money. There are better German medium tank crew trainers, and better silver credit medium tank earners.Collector's Gem: Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. K.

If they want to flog these trashy tanks they really need to bloat it with a BIA crew. That way, players would be buying the crew rather than the tank.

Literally every other tier 5+ German Premium Medium tank is a better tank than the Pz3K.

It is a tier 4 tank with tier 5 premium health at tier 5.

It's a tank that looks cool (IMO) but plays like a tier 4 tank with tier 5 matchmaking. Beware what you're buying. If you want a decent german tier 5 premium get yourself Pz T25.

 

This doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't buy it. Just know what you're buying. You have been warned.

Here's the best German T5 med and it's entirely free to get and easily free to play. It's almost premium tank like since it works best with the derp gun and firing HE which is dirt cheap, usually always causes something nasty to happen to the enemy tank, can 1 shot lots of tanks so it's also by far the most fun T5 German med I've ever played and it's the best gun of the T5 105mm derp meds, aims a little quicker, reloads about a second faster than the Shermans, the French thingy and it looks great with those spaced armor shield thingys bolted on there.

Yesterday evening the countdown had 16 hours remaining - this afternoon it's showing as 17 hours remaining.

Obviously the stock isn't shifting very well. :teethhappy:

I can confirm that as I own the tank. It's garbage, I bought it after buying the P IV Schmalturm which is very good, thinking this would be similar.

Collector's Turd would be a more apt name for this.
