I was going to ask the same question.

Do you like a fast TD with no armor and an OP gun that can shred pretty much everything? Have you played the T8 RHM and liked it? Do you need a german prem TD? Do you like td's with a turret? Do you have $50 burning a hole in your pocket?

 

If you answer any of there's with a yes, get it.

 

(Or if you like the Swedish TD's wait for the STRV S1. I hope soon)

It's a great td at tier 8.  I don't find mine to be the best credit earner, but its not bad.  Think of a Tier 8 hellcat.  Easy to get into trouble with it.  Easy to over extend and 0 armor to protect you.  I play mine a little more conservatively now.

In before the Frumpster trots out his usual hypocritical P2W arguments.

Its a good tank and better then the jp 8.8. The difference is that the jp 8.8 has pref mm. Even so the scorpion is a superior tank in that its has great flexibility instead of armor and its able to go against tier 10 if the tank is played wisely. On that note the scorpion is designed for advanced players that know a lot of the game mechanics so heads up on that.

​Not really for advanced players. I have seen sub 500 wn8 tomatoes deal 1.5-2k damage pretty regularly in this thing. Granted they rarely help the team win but.....

 

The ammo does seem a bit over priced. My son has one, I do not. So I know this prem is not a great money maker but its not horrible.

Good TD and I make good credits in mine.  Yes.  Just play smart or you'll get nuked.

I like mine, its fun to play but like others say you can get in trouble pretty quick.  Also, if you are looking for A German Training tank, this one is not it.

For me

#7 of 9 Tier 8 prems gross profit

#6 of 9 Tier 8 prems net profit

That makes this not a good credit earner in my opinion


 I don't run gold and I only run small repair, small med, and auto extinguisher (run auto because I have a few hundred in the depot)


 

3k replacement cost for those is far cheaper than 20k, especially when you are credit grinding.

It's a solid tank if you're good in paper TD's. good mobility, great gun. If you're not good at the playstyle though, you will have a rough time with it.

I was wondering on money making in it too. So what is the average credits per game?

Op bought it and is averaging one shots damage per game so far. :P

 

The skorp is a fine tier 8 td with a big boomstick but unless you know how to play it then you will diaf regularly doing little to no damage.

This game is not about good or bad tanks. MM makes them good or bad & it is your skill to challenge the MM.

But wait, if you order in the next 10 minutes, we will double your order!

I did play the Rhm on the test server. Loved it to pieces. Also the STRV S1, what tier, does it have same mechanics as the STRV 103B?

If you liked the RHM you'll probably hate the skorp, its very different.

The Skorpion G is awesome, a must-buy in my opinion. Really powerful and an excellent credit maker. Its only problem is the odd crew layout, which makes it not very good as a crew trainer.

yes. It is one of the better tier 8 mediums in the game.
