Decent tank. Too slow, but otherwise good.

Even after the mobility buff I run mine with Turbo; makes it somewhat decent. Still a decent tank to play in today's meta; much better than that T-42 US premium MT that came out last year.

Well I guess it is because of the nationality, because it isn't due to it being a good tank.

Just be warned, the reload on that particular tank, holds it back quite a lot.

i absolutely loathe when people bring the stats up because some people play for fun and there is nothing wrong in that.

but... let's assume the other dude wants to be competitive with his tank you will not sell it to him with 245 battles played and 875 average damage. again apologies for looking that up but it is relevant for present discussion about the tank

Don't buy T27 If it goes on sale, it's the worst autoloader, it lacks a shot in the magazine to be for being good, sold my T27 pretty quickly and has never missed it.

Ah, but if you are going to look at his average damage in that specific tank, you cannot just look at that single number and be done. You need to take the player playing in tank into consideration. If you compare his performance in the Skoda T27 to his performance in other tier 8 mediums, it does not significantly stand out as either better or worse. So for him it would correctly not qualify as a bad tank compared to the others in his garage.

 

I like my Skoda, but it does do a lot better in Frontlines than in randoms for me. Easier to maintain my distance from enemies while I reload, I suspect, since the same applies to my Lorraine 40t. :popcorn:

Its still to Slow its sluggish even after the so called 'buffs' its Traverse is rubbish for a Medium Tank however well armored WG says it is

 

and once you know its obvious frontal weak points which are impossible to Hide, its easy to Destroy (if it had another extra 200hp it would help a lot to maneuver out of harms way

That is one bloody horrible tank/ No wonder they sold it with 3 2D styles and 2 complete BiA crews cos it is atrocious. It does nothing well and everything too a very mediocre standard... it is just a very poor vehicle. If I bpother to play it I play like a medium scout cos I don't want to get into it with anybody but light tanks and even then they need but up close.

1) Dear WG, you could, at any point in the past half a year, 'turn on' Frontlines, so I would actually be able to test how good the Super Perishing (that I got for a 15% discount with my tournament gold) actually is compared to my other favorite FL tanks with similar roles like Caernarvon AX / Patriot / FV / Chrysler!

2) Why do you guys have to bully the dude who just wants the T27 Škoda? It's the only Czech tier 8 premium tank, so of course it has an appeal (To grind out a good Škoda T50 crew) and he wants it.

I played this tank for like 10 battles on 2 different sandbox test servers. 10 battles is a small sample, but I absolutely loved it. (Something like two ace tankers and two more 1st classes.) You just do the most basic gameplay trick, which still works - waiting for someone on the enemy team to overextend and fire his shot at an ally, then you pop out to shoot 2-3 times (sometimes it pays off to not be greedy), try to not trade too much health till the end game where everyone is around 500-800 health or so and finish them off with a trade: 1 shot for 1 clip. Yea, it doesn't have the same single shot capabilities as the Progetto 46 does, but then again, there's quite a few maps where you can't actually use them anyway (Airfield, Abbey, Cliff, Empires Border etc.) If you can chill out while staying hidden at times opposed to always Try-Harding to get shots off like you have to do in Progetto 46 I think I'd really like this tank too for a casual, strictly non-stats account. (Or a mode like Frontlines.)

Good and beautiful comment ;)


 

There is nothing wrong with someone wanting a tank, I'm sure we all have bought something because we like it not because we think it is good :)

Bully? I take your proficiency in English isn't that great.

 

I came with a warning and that is far away from actually bullying a person. It is a warning and nothing more or less.

 

I got the tank on my main account and yes I can make it work with the 4 ladies it came with, but another tank with the same amount of skills would do better in most cases.

It is just too team dependable for it to work most of the time.

Now if it had the dpm of the Bourrasque, then it would be better as the less than 1600 dpm as stock on a tier 8 is deadly... for itself.

When the Superpershing first came out I fell in love with it.

First few battles testing it I bounced so many shots off the spaced armour it was silly.

So I bought it

They must have considered it OP because some time later they nerfed its armour and offered a gold refund to those who no longer wanted to keep it.

Think thats correct its ben a while.

Its slow though not as slow as it was so you play it accordingly.

If soneone understands where its weak spots are you will be in trouble but there are many who do not have a clue in fact there are Superpershing owners that do not seem to know where to aim.

202 pen isnt bad and 258 premium pen is great especially as you don't see tier 10.

 

T27 not bad great mobility paper armour suits some players but not all.

I really need some armour for when I mess up

The Lancen C is a decent medium worth considering if it goes on sale before you make a decision.
