They are great but a bit overpriced and since you can't use any of the cuppons... They wil remain there for a while :(

Nice OP tank. Even the biggest "casual" players can be kinda useful with it. 

For Pay to win game price is fair. The biggest wallet win  :playing:

Not a good tank anymore, not worth to play nowadays. It got a sneaky nerf. Accuracy down, camo is terrible... Buy it if you wanna get spotted from 500 meters.

Oh look, its the tanks that have been sold more times than a Big Mac.

 

Its getting boring, esp when you don't give any sort of discount.

Isn’t there a summer sale thingy that this could have been slotted into?

Or are the summer sales reserved exclusively for crappy ridiculously power-crept tanks only?

 

That’s what it looks like.

I was really keen to get this tank for ages and got it recently but tbh I was disappointed with it and don't play it much. Gun is great but it's just a gigantic sized tank with terrible camo so you can sort of guess how being a delicate paper box and a sniper doesn't really play into being gigantic and having bad camo.

By comparison, the SU 130 PM is just, imo, a way better TD. It's not as fast as the skorp and it doesn't have a full traverse turret but for the role these TD's serve and their delicate build, non of that matters, the SU is low profile and has half decent camo which means it can remain unseen, utilize much more areas of cover the big lanky Skorp cannot and therefore like I said, the SU is just better at being the TD.  

For me, the plan was to get the Skorp to complement my SU, and use both during a credit building session with some PR's popped to make best use of the PR's and not waste any time. Should one get destroyed before battles end, I can quickly go back to the garage and play the other, no wasted time. At least, that was the plan, but like I say, it didn't really work out like that since the Skorp was not as efficient as the SU and so since it just gets spotted all the time instead I continue to run with my SU and WZ combo for credit grinding sessions. 

 

On a final note, I notice my 15% discount does not work on the standard package which is not a deal or anything so there is no reason that I can see for this discount not to work and very much not cool WG. It is a standard package at around €40, no discounts, no extra's, so no reason for this discount not to apply. That's not cool at all. Obviously for me personally I already have a skorp but if I didn't, was waiting for this opportunity or if it was another tank I don't have but was waiting for, its really bad taste.

No, it was a post without a comment. Politicians do it all the time,talking without saying anything.
