I bought this tank just because it looks cool and it is only available tier 8 heavy tank with 490 alpha damage so it offers something unique.

Not yet, I just arrived to work. But what I saw at tanks.gg it will have tragic gun handling, one of the worst from tier 8 heavy tanks.

Daki played a bunch of VK 75 and E75 TS. He was not impressed. Especially not by the latter. I made a video clip of the VK not hitting an Rhm Borsig right in front of it but it seems like it got removed. Thanks, WG. 

Here's some gameplay: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/469820459

 

As for myself I already have the mighty Löwe and don't have much of an interest in playing German heavies anyway, so it's an easy pass.

Looks interesting, like a German ‘Chrysler’ without the terrible pen (looks that is - haven’t seen the Armour profile).

 

Already have the Löwe so not sure, but if anyone has a spare rental code they don’t mind sharing - please PM

Yes, this game really needed another fiction tank with 490 alpha.

Yeah saw QB play the E75 TS, and it did look quite terribad. However he said he wasn't allowed to play the VK 75 yet and it would be played Thursday instead.

High alpha damage = toxic.

Judging by the price tag, which is about the same as your average generic 240 alpha medium it should be balanced. In that case i approve, if it offers unique playstyle without being OP, why not.

His YT vid with a review of the VK is up. He consider it quite balanced. Some novel aspects like the high alpha and side scraping ability is offset by the gun handeling and long reload. Armour is good, but not considered OP. He consider it balanced. I got a rental code from a clan mate so I will test it out myself.
