That french heavy would be useful for me as a crew trainer, but 40 bucks is too much. Lower the price to around 30 and we'll talk.

 

Also, just a little semantic question. Do you not know what "ultimate" means? Not that I'd even consider paying even more for some useless additions, but "ultimate" by definition should be the, well, ultimate of these packages, not the middle. Get it right, wargaming.

I think you need to paint Skorpion G in black and sell'it as schwartzskorpion. There are people who love to have 3 or 4 versions of this tank.  Cash flow problems ? I see Skorpion G and E-25 On sale too often lately.  You miss the old times ?

Lol but the Somua and the Skorp were on my buy-list, Skorpion wanted for a long time (but didnt have a coupon then) and decided to get Somua instead of Lorraine 40t when it was last for sale.

 

Now I have to choose since I won't get them both for the current prices :P

 

EDIT: leaning towards the Skorp since I wanted a turreted TD for a long time (Su130-PM might be better but I like my German tanks for the lore) and already got the Spaghetto so Somua SM might not feel 'new' enough.

I remember when I started with WOT year ago how frustrated I was getting those big punches from camping scorpions. 

I wanted this TD so much. You just dont want be on receiving site of its gun.

Aww, I don't know... I think Dragonball Z and such set a nice precendent that "ultimate" is season 2 material, to be outclassed by everything that comes afterwards. :D

Can't wait for the Shaggy packages to become the standard in 2022

I fully understand you. Skorp was my second premium tank, which I bought when I found out that I really like to play TDs. Even after those years, it is still one of my favorite tanks.

Skorpion is better, it's one of the best tier 8 premiums if you like tds at least

Hmm. I could buy myself the Somua SM, a nice autoloading French heavy tank, but a single tank nonetheless.
Or, I could buy myself the whole EU4 with all of its DLCs on steam, with some money to spare.
Tough choice... or not.

My opinion - if I wanted to buy premium tanks I'd go to the "store" page, not the "news" page.

Also, can we just not have a week where 3-5 strong premium tanks appear in the store?

Somua leaves a bad taste in my mouth bc WG made the two tech tree equivalents intentionally mediocre and bad, respectively. I also wonder if it is any good against being circled, my experience is that the 50 100's turret traverse is way too slow for that.

EU4 ?

It is a fat slow heavy which nonetheless has no armour; if you have no friends nearby, it is horrible at being circled. That said, in the same circumstances most heavies are. This one has a 45 second gap of not being able to shoot back when the clip is empty, though. That leads to problems if you are by yourself.
