Hi fellas,

as for title, worth buying it? Consider that i'm a f2p (in case you don't know), and i like mobile tanks especially hull down ones.

But i'm not sure, so i'll appreciate if you share your opinion with me about it. :D

well that's the problem Gruff, nobody likes to join (at least my friends) and i don't have the enough time to deal with two accounts at the same time. Also i can get that and this one too, even better. 

But i'm not sure if this Patriot worth buying for that bonds cost, or i have to consider the STG since i don't have any T8 Russian MT for training crew.

If you don't mind spending the bonds then yes it's worth it, I know you play a lot of tier 10 as this also helps to fund our clan industrial resources, so your bond income is greater than most dingers :)  With another account if you don't mond waiting a few months for the reward you could do it with just 10-15mins of battles a day.

Its very out of meta and not very enjoyable to play. I would keep the bonds.

Nope,patriot is outdated at this point,you have garbage gun handling,the hull armor is nothing to write home about and you cannot trade due to the low alpha,the only thing you can do with it is try to go hulldown,which is very situational.

Then should i consider Guard instead of T26E5? 

I think I won't be able to reach T34-85M in this TRs season...

No way, Patriot is much better than the Guard.

The Guard is a pretty weird med/TD hybrid with a long reload.

For me Patriot all the way between the two.

Patriot is still fine as a tank.It was considered very powerful or OP when first introduced.It cant magically be out of meta all of the sudden.

Renegade is probably better though.

 

Is it worth the bonds ?

Depends.

 

How many bonds do you have and what are you planning to do with them ?

How many premium tanks you own already ?

Are you prepared or can you afford to buy a premium tank ?

 

For me its not worth it.

picture is available....and I'm not planning to join any CWs so I thought to invest my bonds on crew trainers. 

How many premium tanks you own already ?

5 T8s and one T7, from T8s, only TS 5 & CAX are really good options. wz, Fv ,Vk 168 and T92, also M4A1 were rentals.

 

Are you prepared or can you afford to buy a premium tank ?

I said I'm a f2p in my first comment. :D

 

For me its not worth it.

I quite like the Patriot but spending 8k bonds to get the American flavour of the CAX that you already own is questionable. But if you don't have any other plans for your bonds and don't feel like waiting forever to see if something else of interest pops up in the bond shop then sure. I don't think it will disappoint you. Can't really recommend the Guard. I got that one from the shop and yeah it has its moments but it really should have better mobility for what it is to make it more enjoyable.

I was thinking about getting the Patriot too, but in the end I decided to keep my bonds. 230 pen APCR, while may look strong, are close to 215 AP pen against very sloped armoured plate. It has quite low alpha and the turret, while strong, can't reliably bounce premium ammo. The side of the mantlet are between 190 and 240 effective without normalization. I'm totally up for having hulldown tanks with weackspots, but this is a bit big.

I bought the Patriot when I played WoT on PS4. It was a very reliable credit-maker because you will always do some damage with solid DPM, decent penetration and cheap ammo. But, the tank is just not that great. If there were more maps with hills and no arty you would be OK. I feel it´s just a slightly better Super-Pershing that takes occupies a heavy spot on your team. I would rather bully other mediums in my Super-Pershing than being bullied by hostile Defenders in a Patriot.

Well to be fair, the meta is way different on console. I mean they still have the WT auf E100. So not really comparable when people above said it's out of meta. That it indeed is.

Well tbh, I wouldnt pay money for it atm. but like someone above said, if you are not planning to use your bonds any other way, patriot might be a ok purchase.

 

I play with mine every now and then and can make decent income with it so why not, I recommend it over the other options. (if you really want to get a prem tank right now)

It happened over time. After Patriot WG added CAX, Renegade and buffed Caernarvon, for example.

DPM is always important to have, Patriot DPM is good 2.7k with gun rammer, but Guard is just the worse I've ever seen, 1.9k with gun rammer! That's just horrible. 

 

CAX and Caernarvon have great DPM, 2.9k and 3.1k with gun rammer. So imagine, they can keep you tracked for ever or even keep two tanks tracked at the same time! :D

I like mine, good credit maker. I still prefer it over tech tree Caer because I find the turret more workable (higher). Warning, crew is +1 (radio) versus american tX heavies.

I think the gun handling's too bad to spend bonds on it.

 

Maybe try a rental / test server version though, if you get the chance, cause you might like it (for reasons other than the gun handling...).
