Oooooh loook what do we have here. A proper forum topic for the Skoda T27 sales :trollface:

Jokes and sarcasm asides I'm happy that this topic has popped up. I'll remove my sarcastic comment from the other forum topic.

Honestly its not a great move to sell a tank after it was in the advent calendar some weeks ago for gold. First, the sales will be low (because a lots of people bought it for gold), and secondary its a missed opportunity to sell something which was not in the advent calendar in the first place.

The tank itself is a decent choice (Or at least I think based on some statistics on the internet and a lots of gameplay videos and streamers and so on). Not OP, but its OK, a great crew trainer for czeh tank lovers.

New year's resolution: don't give Wargaming money until they earn it.

I got one for gold from calendar, not played it yet. But yeah, it was hardly a marathon since you had to buy the tank outright to get some other bits and pieces.

See how few people react at your posts Wargaming ? I can tell this is not a good sign. It means community will act like you, they don't give a Foch anymore about the game like you do not give a Foch about the community.

Paper tank with good mobility parameteres. Gun handling is quite OK :)

202mm of standard pen in a game featuring lots of broken heavily armored tanks from T8-T10 which is what this papery med is going to see. Therefore with the dumb sandbox changes ACTUALLY going to be introduced this year it makes literally no sense to buy premium tanks with that level of standard pen and premium tanks of weak armor unless they're some dedicated scouting light tank. 

 

I take it WG have gone off the deep end of madness here, do they think people are THAT stupid? WG come out with announcements for 2020 stating these effective nerfs to premium ammo in which it will be 20% less damage than standard ammo, nerfs to HE which was the only other viable non-premium ammo choice to deal some damage where standard can't pen AND an extra 10% splash radius to the high alpha arty shell choice in exchange for some pretty harmless stun removal.... so.... WG think players are going to read that bs future plans and then go buy paper tanks that will really suffer to an even more potent arty such as SkorpG's, papery meds like this and ANY tank with weak standard pen like this?

 

Do WG think players will read these 2020 plans and go "hmmmm, here's a premium T8 med costing a lot of real world money with only 200 mm of standard pen that in truth will pen fork all especially since the most featured maps are also the smallest maps, front armor orientated maps and thus have no choice but to shoot premium ammo only now it's going to be 20% less effective and I will also have to therefore shoot 20% more of it while my papery tank gets wrecked for free by everyone else with standard ammo dealing 20% damage than my premium ammo" 

 

Same with Progetto and any other premium med, why would ANYONE buy one of those now when in several months they're going to be at a massive disadvantage for their lack of standard pen, 20% weaker premium alpha compared to the toothless standard ammo and HE which will do even less than it currently does. Frontlines? If you like it, sure. For randoms, forget about it.

 

Ya good luck with that WG, you'll need it!

low penetration 203

paper armor

whole drum deals only 720 dmg and then there is quite long reload

 

WG you won't sell a piece unless you buff alpha to 300/ add 1 shell in drum/ buff penetration to 230

 

as mentioned in comments above.....

 

Seriously WG?

The Czech Holidays event was approached differently than your standard challenge, for example as we had with SU-130PM. A lot of people liked that idea, but at the same time it doesn't mean that we won't see any old-style challenges coming back. :)

I am glad WG made this offer, and waiting for the rest of the Advent Calendar tanks to appear in the premium shop for sale. Of course not looking forward to the changes in HE etc. Waiting for new maps and expecting the stuns from arties will remain in game, it is an appropriate feature.

Very bad tank.1623 base DPM, 720 clip damage if everything penetrates, 21.03 reload time, no armor, average accuracy and aimtime, unremarkable alpha damage and penetration, crew slots only match the Skoda T 50 and TVP T 50 / 51.Enough? My big mistake, next time I'll be better informed.

A much better option is the Škoda T 40, excellent DPM, good alpha damage per shot, good top speed and acceleration, good view range and signal range, good AP (standard) and great HEAT (premium) penetration, decent accuracy and aim time , 1,995.03 DPM.

The tank is not bad. You forget that the clip damage is decent with very short time before the shots. Also, reloading of the whole clip is relatively quick. 
The tank has no armor, true, but that`s the case with most autoloaders anyway. 
Alpha and penetration is actually OK, otherwise it would be pretty powerful. 

Finally, the tank is pretty mobile so all in all I`d say it`s a decent tank.
