Europe's most played and wanted premium tank.

I played it rental, it's really awesome.

Gold offer ingame is pretty ok too. :B

Make sure you have a BiA crew to put in it, because for some reason the long range accuracy is disappointing without it, you can fully aim at a stationary target, but the gun will be like, "Nope! Lemme put that shot in the 20% of the reticle not filled by the target." 

It is rather frustrating when you put a new-ish crew in it without BiA. At least that is my experience with the tank. 

Otherwise, this is the most popular premium in WoT for a reason, those big dmg shots never get old to see and it farms credits exceptionally well.

I would really want to buy this tank, but 50 euro's for a pixel tank?  no freaking way.

Just sell it without all the excess crap that comes with it.

I received it from last year's loot boxes but I sold it after some months of dust collecting in my garage. Somehow it doesn't fit me, I didn't like its playstyle at all.

But that's the strength with the Skorpion; it doesn't have a playstyle. It can play several roles depending on the situation. :)

For people who bought any of the Advent tanks with gold: are the x5 missions tied to the tank, or can you complete them with any tank?

Slow turret turn, no armour, no camo. One of these factors should be better and I would like it. But this way I choose a medium or a heavy tank any day over this abomination. It is simply just not enjoyable for me and that is the most important for a premium I would like to play to farm credits.

I've recieved mine too then.

It haven't disappointed me, because I still have zero battles with it. :D

I'm still thinking about doing  TD's missions at last. Maybe I will use it then.
