numbers say.

 

Aim is far from reality.

If you dont wait until Aim is complete 90% or  will miss.( takes forever to close Aim,with good crew and setup)

Its not even accurate this gun.

Its big tank

After shoot everyone will spot you

Low HP, 2 shots from 130 PM you are dead.

Doesnt make that much because shell is not thast cheap.

 

1 good this DPM is ok but is this enough to buy this tank... not for me.

 

Refund should be an option.

Skorpion is for active gameplay. If you want a bushcamping TD you had to buy the SU-130PM.

You're a similar player to me, and its not the Skorps Fault, its a very capable tank, its not for me as I'm bad in it, and it makes plenty of credits

Aim is far from reality. - nothing new here... that is the same for most tanks that havent Stalins legacy coded into the gun/shell

If you dont wait until Aim is complete 90% or  will miss.( takes forever to close Aim,with good crew and setup) - nothing new here... that is the same for most tanks that havent Stalins legacy coded into the gun/shell

Its not even accurate this gun. - if you aim fully it is

Its big tank - yes

After shoot everyone will spot you - happens to most tanks apart from e25 or su-122-44

Low HP, 2 shots from 130 PM you are dead. - same goes the other way around

Doesnt make that much because shell is not thast cheap. - do more damage and it earns good money

 

1 good this DPM is ok but is this enough to buy this tank... not for me.

Removed the red highlighting. Pick another colour if you want, just not red.

SkorpG is hard to play. Esp. vs. tier-10. Just check replays with it and look at tank tiers. There's maybe 1-in-5 replays vs. tier-10, but SkorpG sees tier-10 in 3 out of 4 battles.

One of the overall best premium tanks in the game. Not much more to add.

Bad or not its my opinion.

You are talking with player with big breaks.

Last time I played was 3 years ago.

 

You,well with 50k battles you must be experinced player, maybe...I realy dont now or I dont care.

Had it as a rental, the gun can do impressive damage but... didn't really suit my game play at all so it's not for everyone.

Is not the worst but numbers arent real.

Like Aim and Acc.

 

I give you  1 simple example.

 

1 scout tier 8, speed, fast turns and now try to hit with Scorpion G.will be hard because Aim is slow and if you dont wait untill full AIm  well, almost for sure you will miss

The numbers are real, but the game client is not showing gun handling, which is bad x 2. If you turn the turret, move the tank or just move the gun, the bloom grows very quickly and you're not dealing with 0,29 dispersion anymore. You should pre aim to a spot where you expect the enemy will move to instead of chasing it.

The numbers aren't lying, but there are some that are not shown in-game. For example dispersion on turret movement, and tank movement is terrible on Skorpion, and that causing a big reticle bloom when you move the tank/turret. Unfortunately, you need 3rd party websites to find these stats out. (e.g. tanks.gg)

 

Btw, I am struggling with Skorpion as well. (I didn't play it much, though) Probably needs a good crew (that I don't have) and food to compensate these hidden stats. Or just simply it doesn't fit my play style. I accepted it a long time ago, that there are tanks, that I cannot make work, or that there are "cursed" ones in my garage. It doesn't make these tanks bad, but it can be frustrating in the case of a premium that you played money for. (I got mine by luck from loot boxes) Next time maybe try to get your hands on rental, or borrow a friend's account to try out a premium before paying for it.

Refund is an interesting question. There are laws that guarantee refund for goods purchased online, without the need for a reason. However, these are physical goods. Probably the laws are not up to date with the real world, as always, and they are not considering virtual goods, that they should. Anyway, you can get your money back via paypal, or your bank, but that will result in a ban on your account.

But but... isn't that what real life TD's do? :amazed:... I often heard a certain crowd say 'WoT is an arcade game, not a simulation....'

Every time I play this tank I make at least 80k - 150k profit every game, maybe you think it may be you? You're not as good at the game as you think you are? or is it just the tank?

i couldn't work this trash of a tank, even on a 6 skill Grille 15 crew. All it's good ''abilities'' exist merely on paper.

wha? the skorp is one of the best premiums ever man!

you just have to remember that while it can play like a sniper, doesn't mean you have to do it the whole time.

 

As you know, the skorp has under average camo, considering how big the thing is(panthers were not known for their stealthiness. If you have touched the turreted german line, it plays a lot like the grille 15. In the 3rd line where it wont get spotted, or you can also be aggresive, but of course you have to be rather careful.

 

Basically, and like all the other guys have said, spend more time with the tank and learn it. You will not regret it!

Not underaverage, it's completely pathetic.

I suppose I could agree with you on that. Mine doesn't have camo skill on, so I can get it up to a 30% when still(with camo net)
