Hello Friends, 

 

I see tank reward again this month, I have tier 1 unlocked already

 

I have DILEMA, I love all British tanks and have yet to get Firefly VC BUT, I have sentinel tier 6 already and , well, does saxsan really need firefly too?

 

I do not have STYER , but I do have German td both lines (Panther and nashorn) but I also have already stung IV and Jagtiger **

 

I DO NOT want Thunderblolt as I dont like most American tanks

 

SO , knowing that I love British tanks but I do not like the American star on the firefly, and that I have some German TDs already, is Styer or firefly worth it?

 

 

I watched quickybaby review both and still am torn

I don't know either tank, but if the USA star is bothering you, just put a sticker over it in custumization.

The firefly isn't all that great imho.  I got it due to the historical meaning and a trainer if needs be.

 

I think I'm far to an aggressive player for its play style. 

 

That TD is ok if you like to sit and wait.

 

What what

Thunderbolt has surprisingly bouncy armour. It's like a baby SuperPershing.

The premium Firefly has tiny bit worse mobility vs the tech tree one, and way slower top speed vs the AC 4. But more DPM then both "200 more vs the AC 4". So as a pure support medium, it's a bit better vs them. So you should know what to expect from it as you have played the tech tree variant and ofc own the AC. And ofc, it's a Firefly with premium income.

 

German TD is not bad either, you could argue it's a Nashorn with a Turret. 203 pen from the L71, full 360 turret, 60% camo with a good crew and net, and 13% when firing. And 460+ view range with binocs. So he can do his own spotting if you want to. The drawbacks are that it won't bounce anything vs even lower tiers. And he has two crew cupolas at the front hull that gives him only -2 gun depression over the sides. Nor is it fast considering how light it is. As it only goes 35. So like the Firefly, fall back early if you want to escape.

 

So their style is more or less the same. One has higher income as it's a tier 7 ofc. But Firefly is still a Firefly with premium income. You have tier 8 premiums to lack income. Nor do you lack crew training on neither. Personally I would go for the Firefly. As I suspect you would get more out of it vs the WT.

Welcome back to the forums.

 

I'd get the Steyr WT. Both struggle with mobility but the German accuracy isn't gonna fail you. Rate of Fire is slow for it's caliber but that's the only con.

Keep in mind that, when you get to the target area, reverse your vehicle 180º. It has good gun depression but the crew hatches interfere (like the O-Ho miniturrets).

I always grab the all-in-one camos, coz they technically cost allot more in actual real life currency and they can be pretty unique and they are permanant.

Steyr. as if you dont like it you can always trade it in for something else.

or you can go get the 7 days of premium if you dont want any of the tanks.

but i do wonder, would i get the Steyrs full price in gold as i have it already or would i just get nothing with a garage slot. :unsure:

Thank you, I am still so unsure, many in my clan getting both

I'm going with Steyr, as I quite enjoyed the rental Skorpion I've had for the past couple of weeks and their playstyle seems similar.

For some reason I have very bad winrate with the Firefly VC, so I might be biased.

 

It's a good DpM sniper gun on a bad platform.

Tank is slow and clumsy and low armoured.

 

If you get tier 6 matches:

- if people are driving in the open and not paying attention to you you will eat them very fast.

- if you get rushed by a couple tier 5 tanks you might die fast because no armour.

 

If you get tier 7-8 matches, due to the good AP pen and very good APCR you can still chew people driving in the open.

Otherwise you're just too slow to react to changes on the minimap and camo is not good enough to keep you hidden.

 

Basically it's a fast-shooting sniper/support tank.

Check out Circon's channel, he does seem to enjoy it: https://www.youtube....h?query=firefly

Your question should pretty much be answered in my poll from last week ...

I am getting the StWaft but that is because I already have the Firefly, which I would get were it not the case.

You won't get gold. Just sell the Steyr (1.190.000)  and claim it again.

 

@Saxsan:  Steyr has a 4 man crew, so not exactly a good crewtrainer for your Nashorn/JPanther because they both have 5 man crew. But it is a nice credit maker.

Styer is the bigger hit on WG's wallet ... if such thing is even possible. But the Firefly is moar fun coz Medium and those things are always funner than being alone in a bush the whole game, with a roll of toilet paper.

I have the Thunderbolt and do not really enjoy it, the armour is too inconsistent and the speed reduction grates. I much prefer the Fury.

 

The Firefly I have and really enjoy and do well in.

 

I do not have the Steyr.

 

I am not going to chose the Steyr. I will realistically never play it. I have in the garage: e25, Skorpion G, Stug IV, and Dicker Max if I need a German TD trainer.

 

I will take the seven days of premium over the Steyr.

 

If I did not already own the Firefly I would have taken that.

 

It comes down to personal choice and tanks you enjoy and will play. Passive redline TD game play is not particularly appealing to me.

all 3 are rather crap...

 

you already have the prius for british(and between crew trainer/money maker at t8 and some t6 shitter... let's get real). And the 8.8 for germans.

 

dunno; I didn't manage to play any of the rewards even if I got them all. And at least type 64/t34M are actually very good tanks for their tier.

 

You already have a crapton of t8 that gather dust in your garage(under 100 battles). So probably, whatever you pick, it'll also gather dust. Toss a coin :P
