Blame the marathon where they released it, the tokens was set at a way too high price.

T-34-3 plays like a heavy tank and is only good for close combat due to a horrible gun handling. It had a buff recently, but it's still missing a lot of shoots. Standard ammo penetration is too low, apparently it will get a slight penetration buff which will not be enough. Not recommended, it was good 8 years ago.

VK 75.01 (K) is very bad, get Lowe which is very good and has a very good overall package.

T-44-100 is very good but only when using premium shells, standard shell penetration needs a buff and it's too slow. I constantly get tier X games in it. You can play this tank like a LT, it has a good cammo and a view range. This tank has lost its charm about a year or two ago already.

Overall, you should have purchased GSOR 1008 yesterday.

Every good premium is sold overpriced, always. They know is good, they price accordingly to milk more the players.

What about the VK guys?

Price is acceptable and alpha is really tempting.

I really enjoyed the whole russian line of IS-M, obj 705 and 705a but what I am worried about is, those tanks are russian.

This is german and the rear turreted germans are far inferoir to ruskis from what I hear. So what about this VK?

Is it workable?

That's not even true, both the bourrasque, LIS, renegade and lt-432 were cheaper and they are the best premiums in the game.

None of them were except maybe the renegade which went back on sale recently. Every one of those was released in an overpriced bundle that you could have made it cheaper by farming yourself to death in the marathon, or not being sold again at all.

There is a reason if the VK is priced at less than 30€ and the 44-100 is over 40€, despite other regular t8 mediums being sold around 30€.

When a tank is good, is always priced higher than the others comparable tanks. Always.

As someone who has the VK 75.01 (K) I could say that the vehicle needs a buff.
-The gun has nice alpha, when it hits.. it hits! I've had a lot of games where I pulled out a lot of damage out of nowhere even though I though that I didn;t do much.. HOWEVER, the gun is very inaccurate as the dispersion values are pretty bad. I can understand the reload as it's a balancing factor for the alpha, but lord oh lord, that accuracy needs some love.
-It's slow, but that's to be expected for a vehicle that's supposed to be armored, yet the armor isn't as good as it appears at first sight. The cupola is a weakspot, so don't expose the turret that much, and high penetration ammo could get through your turret cheeks.

-As for the hull, even when sidescraping you could get hit into the hull right above the tracks, due to the angle and shape of the hull. Also lower plate is vulnerable.

 

I have had fun in the tank before, it can be quite funny to hit someone as a heavy for 490 at tier 8, but I would hesitate on recommending the vehicle to people.

Hope this helps.

The Rudy at t6 is still the best choice atm - I actually tried to gift that to a clanmember/friend but it doesnt work because the offer is "exclusive" ... donno why WG doesnt make it possible to gift exclusive offers.

Can you elaborate please? I have had a look at tanks GG at the model, and of course the cupola is horrible pennable even by t6. What surprised me more was top of the turret though, since it has this weird shape to its turret it looks very pen-able but this is probably only problem against tall tanks, its hard to say how tall the VK really is though.

The precision, while dissappointing I think I could live with ( i mainly play russian tanks soo.. I am used to having circle the size of maus) the dispersion values seem like the real problem. Is it really so bad, considering you are mostly fighting in close combat?

Is the hull armor while sidescraping that bad? My ISM has on occasions bounced gold from jagpanzer e 100.

Where do you get penned most often would you say? Also have you played IS-M for comparison?

 

 

Thank you both guys btw.

Last week I had a 30% off coupon and nothing I wanted was for sale.

VK might have tempted me I could probably make it work but heres the thing.

Coupons usually do not work with special offers

I do have a 15 X5 missions coupon and it works on all of these tank offers except 1 and thats because its priced lower than the others.

The 30% discount coupon would have worked as it had no minimum prioce set.

Sorry WG you lost a sale.

5 coupons this year and only able to use 1 of them because tanks I do not have but want show up rarely.

I have two of these, the VK and the T-34-3. The latter is my most played tank in this game, I truly do like the T-34-3, it might still keep a bit of its bad reputation that it got when it first came into the game with -3 gun depression but these days I truly believe its a nice tank. I can recommend it for anyone who wants a fun crew trainer or credit maker for China! It's so much fun hitting people for 400 damage, and the preferential MM is the cherry on top.

 

The VK is pretty meh, but it can work and the alpha is very nice. Not something I'd tell people to buy immediately.

 

I kind of want to buy the T-44-100, it seems amazing, but I think I'll wait until they sell the Type 59 again,I missed it in May): pls WG just sell it I've been wanting it for 8 years I don't care if its 100 euros

stupid question ... the t44/100 and researchable t44 with 100 mm gun - do they differ and if so then how?

The price of the T44-100 always makes me laugh.

 

In the world of computer games, just think what £35 can get you ...

A premium title that's a few months old

2-3 premium titles that are 1-2 years old

4-5 premium titles that are 2-3 years old

a 5 year bit of DLC for a 10 year old game.  DLC that looks and plays almost identically to a standard part of the game, increase crew progression that can be achieved in dozens of other (much cheaper) items of DLC and extra in game currency that can be achieved in hundreds of other (much cheaper) items of DLC.

 

WG, I know you screwed up the initial price and so now you're stuck, but if it's so precious to you, you can keep it.

 

I wonder how many units they will sell. 100 maybe ?  Sell it for £15 and they'd sell 1000s.
