Now i know this topic has been beaten to death but I am just curious how many of you plan to give the SP a chance after the patch goes live and make a decision on selling it or not based on how it plays on the live server.

Also for those of you who are already planning on selling it, what T8 prem are you going to replace it, or recommend to replace it with, if any?

As always any and all responses are appreciated!!  :honoring:

I'm selling it, while it was my first prem tank, I have others that I enjoy playing more, going to use the gold to free xp up to the 122-54

I might play a few with it, but I am almost 100% sure I'll sell it. There are better prems I can buy with the gold I'll receive.

Going to play it for a while to stock up creds, then going to sell it for gold and have it restored for credits.

Mine will be sold.  I loved the tank to death when I first got it but as I've played the game more I've learned that it wasn't the monster I thought it was. I'll probably use the gold to pick up another tank in the tree's I'm actually playing.   I'll miss it as I have a lot of fun memories in it but it's time has come and gone.

im gonna end up keeping mine, even if its been beaten into the ground, its still a premium, I really dont see a point in buying something and then just selling it down the line, like I bought my Lowe when it was 7500 gold, and I still own it, even if its not the best T8 prem to play, its still a premium. So even if its not very effective, Im keeping it just for the fact its a prem and my only US med tank crew grinder, and ive owned it since day 1 of 7.2

Played it on the test server with the nerf and I can't really see much difference in it. Still bounces a lot of shots, of course the gun still lacks pen. But I think I will give it a chance, after all it's just in the garage to farm credits anyway which I think it's still very capable of doing...........

Never owned one and after I tested it on the test server I never will. There are a few other tanks out there worth the gold you would pay for the SP.

I'll keep it and give it a shot.  There's a lot of gold flying around the test servers, and I don't feel that I can gauge its performance properly.

I took it into a training room with another player, and found that it's perfectly capable of bouncing at least 170mm pen AP rounds, and somewhat 258mm AP rounds.  The mantlet is the bounciest part, and can deflect 258mm pen rounds.

I wasn't able to test other rounds, unfortunately.  But I was actually giving some T-34-3s a hard time in a battle; Guess they weren't using gold!

Sell it.  

Another fail attempt by WG.  Can't get it right the first time so when correcting it, remove any value the tank has to gameplay except as scrap.

7200 gold equates to 180 000 free xp.
That is far more valuable than the Super Lame Pershing.

A 20m buff of view range and marginal mobility will just not cut it when 200mm of penetration is needed to penetrate the tank half the time.
Was complete trash pre-nerf, so it'll be worse than that in 8.8.

At least the Type 59 received viable buffs after it was nerfed, whereas the Super Pershing did not.

T69 does a far better job at crew training than the Lame Pershing anyways.
