So, today my premium ran out and before I wanted to renew it, I took my LOWE for a spin.

OMG. I hardly get any good XP or credits. With a premium account I used to coin about 50 000 to 110 000 per game. BUT now, WITHOUT PREMIUM ACCOUNT, I can only average about 30 000 credits.

Now to repair your LOWE will cost anything from 7 000 to 9 000 credits.
Also, you need to rearm your LOWE and that will cost 1 030 credits per bullet.

I mean... WTF?

My M4 Sherman gives me better credits than the LOWE. Even if I have a crappy round, my M4 Sherman will still make me more profit than the LOWE does.

So in short...

LOWE is a GREAT credit and XP farmer when you have a PREMIUM account.

Without the PREMIUM, the LOWE tank means nothing and can then just gather dust.

O yes... Please don't tell me that I'm then playing wrong with the LOWE, cause I played with the LOWE for 50 games. Each time using a different playing style.

But if you boys do not wanna believe me. Please find out yourselves.

50 games is not enough to really speak much to any tank (other than piles of transparently flawed garbage that Shall Not Be Named). And the Lowe has precisely one effective style of play.

You're complaining even though you are still making a profit?

I laughed at the 50 games comment.

Congrats. Now go play more.

I have somewhere close to 600 battles in it. Believe me, you're wrong. I've played with and without premium and Loewe prints money. Period.

I already have the M6A2E1 from the $90 Prepaid Package, so should I get a Lowe for $30 before they increase the price to $50? My M6A2E1 have destroyed some Lowe before, vice versa. What is better, M6A2E1 or Lowe? Why?

Wrong sir. The Lowe is a t8 tank with a t9 gun making by far better than the KV in fire power. The Lowe may cost 1k or so in rounds but in an avrage game you may shoot 10 rounds. The repair is great for the tier considering the Tiger2 repair bill is 16k and 1k per round cost.

Stock with no consumables the lowe will make you more money per game than any other tank in the game. As far as the german guns go the lowe has the best untill the 128. She is a sniper first and formost ansd if you do not play it as such you will just get owned.

The lowe is not a tank that noob s can just rape in. you can tell a noob lowe driver verus a guy with some heavy tank experiance in the german line.

worth the current 6.5k gold? yes.
But the tiger2 is far more manuverable than the lowe and will be chosen in any clan war battle over a lowe.

do not by the lowe. the E1 is now a cash cow and compaired to the lowe is about even stats wise. The lowe, e1, and KV5 are printing press for people who can not play the way the game was desided. What I mean is that Most of us who work and are older than 10 do not have the time to grind out mid tier tanks to earn credits in game. These premium tanks are just much more forgiving at the upper tier if you have a bad game than a tiger2 or 4502.

get the lowe if you wanna snipe and a printing press. don't bother if you are happy with the E1

The Lowe is great with or without premium. Try playing it another way because you should be getting much more than 30k a game.

ZOMG. This guy must really know what he's talking about. He's USING CAPS all the TIME to highlight WORDS HE THINKS are MORE important THAN the OTHERS. This instantly gives creedence to HIS entire POST!

Also, a T5 making on average more net profit than a T8 is nothing new. That's just as it's supposed to be. That's the business model of WoT, making it so you need premium to sustain higher tier tanks, and you need to keep playing med tier machines to fund your heaviest machines. Working as intended.

Finally:

I would say that unless you have at least T7 and nearing several T8's you are wasting your money on a Lowe at the moment. Several other premium tanks are good credit farmers, albeit not at such a high rate, and you should consider one of those first.

The price is rising shortly, but again, think carefully before splashing your cash. :)

The OP is trolling!

@Stepbro: seriously, you have nothing better to do on the forum?
