Which bug are you referring to?

The tank is not OP, it has a nice gun and the autoreloader mechanism but you should be very careful when playing it.

“Turn the crank and see what surprise pops out!” - WG 2020

 

 “it is not gambling” - Also WG

 

The implied lack of care for- or knowledge of your customer opinions in this statement is pretty terrible. Just me taking the time to let you know my opinion. You are allowed to disagree.

Not interested in a tank that's only available as a prize from gambling.

Last year I bought 75 lootboxes and got 3 tier 8 prems. This year I bought 61 lootboxes and got 3 tier 8 prems. I'm a lucky fellow.

 

GSOR is great btw but autoloaders are really not for everyone.

If you spend the money on boxes for a tier 8 prem and don't get one the only one to blame is YOU.

If you "need" gold/prem time then fine. Maybe you'll get lucky and get a bonus.

This tank is great for people who know how to play the french autoloaders. Especially if you dab the 2 key.

 

The fact  that it is a Tank Destroyer gives you a pretty big advantage, since you wont take up a heavy slot like the T77.

Overall, a nice tank, but I suck with it :P

Probably the “missing crew interface” in the main garage.  If this is the xvm problem you mentioned then fair enough.  However, if WG made some of its rubbish changes optional (cough, dog tags) then we probably wouldn’t need mods so much.


But getting back to topic...

 

I’ve got the GSOR, and it feels like a good tank.  Typical Brit medium mobility, typical Brit gun handling, typical Brit penetration and damage. But 4 shots in 8 seconds.

 

I’m finding enemy players are a little intimidated by it, especially if you’re doing a fighting retreat.

Aha! I see a pattern! Looking forward to seeing Borat tomorrow and ISU-152K the day after!

This is a standard mechanism for AP/APCR on ALL tanks.

32k battles and you didn't know that pen drops with distance (for non-Explosive shells) ?

 

https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Battle_Mechanics#Penetration_Loss_over_Distance

 

Block Quote

 

The penetration values displayed in game indicate average penetration values at 0-100m distance (no penetration loss occurs within this range). Penetration values at higher distances are not displayed. As a rule of thumb, the higher the tier of the gun used, the lower the penetration loss over distance. For example, a Leichttraktor loses up to 17.5% penetration firing AP shells and 51.4% firing APCR shells with its default gun, whereas a Maus only loses about 2% with AP and 15.4% with APCR.
