Wtf ... so many shots land on the outside of the dispersion circle .... this once accurate gun now acts as a drunken baboon .... On paper this should be at least a mildly accurate gun, but way to many shots miss completely nowadays. 

 

I don't have the statistical data to prove it but I'm slowly starting to get this nagging feeling this tank is nerfed indirectly by deliberately making the gun behave this way.

 

Am I just seeying ghosts here?  or do other people have the same experience ?

German 128mm guns always drop the shells into the ground right in front of the target at range, it's not limited to the Skorpion. The Ferdinand and JP2 also have the same issue.

Aim for the turret and you'll hit the hull.

No changed ocured conform to tanks.gg , so you better stop trying to land hits at 450m while you drunk and watch p&rn and go play a real tank like T92 , conqGQ , Obj 261 etc.

If you search for "stealth nerf" and "Skorpion G". You will find about a topic every 3rd month since it's release about others feeling the same thing. So you are not alone. You just had a bad... RNG day.

It's because of the low shell velocity, and how aiming works in WoT.

In 150 games in my Skorpion G I have achieved an impressive win rate of 38%

I shudder to think how much worse I would have done if the tank were not so OP

Ignore the first 10 games on a x4 weekend, they are often rigged.

There would only be a very narrow window of opportunity for that.

I'm seeing ghost replays of what you describe happening. And by that I mean that I can't see any replays of what you describe happening.

 "Sigma" was apparently nerfed on the Scorpion long time ago.

If you want details on sigma stat google it for WoWarships.

Mine has changed a bit as it has had some weird white lines growing on it over the years. I think it's been going bad for a while now.

Probably a combination of fuel tank leak and an issue with the fabric-covered wiring

Historically, Skorp G crews were nervous about turning on the ignition as it was not uncommon for a fireball to result
