Lights will YOLO you because they think you're an easy kill and then suddenly you get penned on every shot by a Panzer II D and die in less than 5 seconds, while being unable to kill the Panzer II D in 2 shots or less.

My issue with that portrail of the Grosstraktor is that: 

 

1: Don't position yourself where you can be yolo'd

2: The armor of the Grosstraktor might not be thick, but it bounces way more than it should. 

3: A Pz II D would be a near one-shot if you hit it's turret, or at least majorly damaged with multiple critical modules/crew taken out. 

 

I'm kind of biased though, for me the G-Traktor works well, with fairly good mobility, good agility, and a punchy howitzer. The thing is also a really nice crew trainer with a massive amount of crew positions. 

 

Here's what the thing can pull off:

They will when their sales targets start failing. Keep your eyes open for it.

i made the mistake of buying it,after having seen one on a testing account. i thought it was really good.by the time of its release,they had changed some of its stats.i should have checked reviews first....ive only played 16 matches in it.also,tier 3 and lower are so hard to get top tier matches,and of course all the missions are geared to tier 4 and up. i will only run it if i am training a crew on a crew special weekend,but i rarely use my german med tanks.good luck to you when you finally get one,if it goes back up!

If they added it to the tech tree or be a mission reward with reasonable reqs I want it but not for $34 usd in a gold bundle. Ignoring the bundled gold this tank costs too much for the performance one gets and it wastes a slot when bottom tier.

That specific bundle was one of the best bundles they've put out. Not too pricey in total, but the other stuff aside from the tank basically was worth about $30-$32 depending on if you get really picky about counting the garage slot or not, etc. The tank worked out to be about $3 or $4. 

 

Now about performance: The G-Traktor can always help the team. How you do so simply changes as you go lower on the totem pole. If you're bottom tier, you are a passive spotter and a harasser of bigger tanks. The 75mm stub howitzer can de-track a tier 5 just nicely and that gets you assistance points and helps make life hard on the enemy's top tiers. However, if you try to brawl with a M4, you're not going to have a good day. 

 

Being bottom tier doesn't = useless, it's more of a challenge, but also gives more rewards (bottom tier battles allow you to rake in xp).
