Gee thanks WG for telling us what a special tank will be on the calendar only to make it only available to purchase with real money when literally everything on the calendar has been available for gold until this. Almost worse than when you had the "rare, limited" ELC EVEN & T26E5 on the calendar and then a couple of days later you added them in the tech tree permanently.
Either way, enough complaining... (Still didn't get my TOG II* on the calendar though, must be the worst part about this)


Is the VK 75.01 K any good? it seems like it has good alpha and really armour but it's reloading speed seems atrocious, it's just 2 seconds faster than my KV-2.

No VK 75 01 K seems to be powerfull but with so many weak spots in frontal armor than any tiers 6-7 with premium ammos can pierce you in frontal (even if well crab-sized).

It's just a huge back of hit points with a big gun.

Usefull and funny if top tiers, to play very carefull vs tiers 9, unusefull vs tiers 10.

 

Unplayable in bastion or Clan Wars because of all his weak spots and it's speed.

 

=> so crappy offer from WG.

If you're going for a German heavy get the Lowe or wait for the E75TS to come out

 

The reload kills it completely (never mind the rest of its weaknesses)

E75 and Lowe 10secs

VK 15 secs

 

If they upped the DPM it might actually be worth a look but as it stands it's a very very poor investment

 

 

 

They've got the same gun on the Skorpion G on an 11 second reload with better pen and they've sold a million of them

WG knows what they've got to do if they want to sell that hunk of junk

Yup,this is WG's classic two fingers to the community,this tank needs armour and reload speed buff,about a s useful as a mauerbrecher, and to top it off you cannot get it for gold, aye Merry Christmas alright:izmena:

VK is actually a really nice tank to play. Gun is good, Armour is fine if you're not an imbecile.

 

Most of the people saying not to buy it are the exact people tanks like the Defender and Type 5 are aimed at, so i'd take their opinion with a pinch of salt.

These are "offers" - you aren't compelled to take them up on their offers you know...

 

I can't imagine what some of the posters in this forum are like on Christmas morning, the sense of entitlement is through the roof...

Played the Vk for some games in randoms and t8 stronghold. I would say its ok to play. The gun (aimtime + behavior) feels pretty sluggish, while the accuracy itself is actually good for a 490 Alpha heavy. Armor-wise you can compare it to a Tier -1,5 downgraded Vk.45.02 . The lower plate is around 170/180 on flat ground and wont work that well against T9+ opponents. Can be pretty enjoyable, If you can manage to hide the cupola while sidescraping.

Thats actually hilarious.

 

And anyone who preemptively purchased gold or credits hoping for a tank that was never confirmed as even being put in the game, deserves to have their money stolen. They're exactly the kind of people who get scammed by people asking for bank details over the phone :teethhappy:

What a let-down. In what way is this tank "rare" other than nobody bought it cuz its crep?

 

Now that i think of it, i havent seen this thing in ages. Everybody that bought it probably gave up on it.

 

Classic middlefinger to the community. GET TROLLED HAHAHAH YOURE SO FUNNY DIMITRI.. YOU TOO SERGEJ XD

You're better off getting the 112 if you want a heavy IMO

 

1 Decent armour profile

2 Can get it for gold

3 No Tier 10 nonsense

I play it. It's a good tank, not broken and stupid, well balanced.

 

Just because it's not idiot proof like a Defender doesn't make it bad.

Or those who sold most of their tanks in the garage, hoping to purchase the WTFe100 for 50 million credits? Ho ho ho! :trollface:

Ha ha, Merry Christmas to you too, lol. Well lets be honest, if WG as a successful business venture did sell the Defender rather than this,imagine how much money they would make, but the additional FU to the community of not even being able to get it for gold, that is a troll too far, especially for this 'rare' tank, as jokes go, this is hilarious:D

I must admit this, plus the fact u need 30 decs on T5 compared to the 16 on the others has made me shut my wallet for good.

 

I don't see any need for them to pull stunts like this other than greed.

 

Shame really as I was gonna spend a few quid today to finish a collection until I realised this..:(

Now there is the question, 112, IS 6 or the other VK which you can get for gold, the VK .168.01P?

So the reloading speed isn't that big of a problem? While it has good alpha, it's reloading feels like it could really weight this down quickly if it's outnumbered.
