Drivers of these seems to get quite angry when people shoot their weakspots. :trollface:

Selling prems that are available in the tech tree since forever sure sounds like a genious marketing idea.

Could you please, for the love of putin, stop advertising 5 year old tanks that used to have good armor as tanks with strong defenses? The powercreep of the new nations makes most armor completely obsolete, even more so since gold ammo is available for miniscule amount of credits if you run a premium account.

Always weird when a company attempts "online speak".....

 

As for the tank, not worth it.

I laugh at people who think they can just click my weakspots but dispersion or my movement [edited]them over. Its bad for FL because its VERY slow, and maybe so for Grand Battles and Assault too. Get a Progetto instead unless you are blue or purple and can outbrawl better tanks.

It is good after the pen and speed buff, not the best med out there, but it is cheap, has pref MM and is forgiving to mistakes. Good first premium for a new player.

The very 1st premium tank I won in a Marathon, I do the "Block Damage" missions with it.

Way back in the mists of time a new tank entered the game it was the Superpershing.

I tested it out and in the first game bounced 30+ shots.

Played a few more games and it was much the same no one knew how or where to pen the tank .

It looked pretty good too.

 

Whether you got penned or not depended on the player shooting you.

There are still enough clueless players around

Frontally its got 4 weak spots with about 160 mm or armour

The rest is still pretty good.

 

If you don't mind slow mediums its not a bad premium depending on price of course.

I bought my first one over on the NA server but my EU one I got in an event.

£25 with 30 days premium 15 x5 missions and 5x 300% crew xp for 2 hours yeah I would pay that if I didn't already have it.

Bound to be tempting offers during tank fest its true.

"bouncy boi"

 

Not really that bouncy to be honest. This is what weakspots do to vehicles, and why they doesn't work. At long distances, anyone with insufficient penetration will simply ignore this little slow tank. At short distances, anyone will aim at the top-turret weakspot and penetrate it like butter. And what can the Super Pershing do about it? Either he can start wiggeling his turret like a muppet, or he can play like he has no armor and thus hide his turret, which will not allow him to cause any damage.

Boi? Whoever you have hired to do the recent premium sales headlines. Please tell me he is older than 14? WG said EU had an average age of 32. So I have no idea who you are targeting here.

Armor is def not his strong points anymore, but still better then it was after the first time they nerfed it. But in a support role the gun still works wonders, as it's as cheap to fire as the 76mm gun on the T92. And still has more pen then any US 90mm tier 8 gun. As that's the only good thing about it atm.

RNG is the Super Pershings best friend, so it will never go out of fashion.  :girl:

Reload is mediocre without Bia+vents. It should be faster for that low alpha, or its vr should be better to compensate for its snail speed. It's rarity is its armor, you still meet players who dont know where to aim or dont have the aim cheat mods to blap the weakspots.
