With the SU-100Y and SU 122-44 at 30% discount does this make them worth getting for both crew trainers and credit makers?  There is no tier 8 TD Soviet Premium TD and I have enough gold to purchase both but not if they are not worth it.  I am a new and average player and I don't mind waiting until I can get at least a tier 5 TD crew done starting their 2nd Skill.

 

Today, 13 Jan would be the last day for getting them at a discount.

Two entirely different TDs.

SU 122-44 is great but time has taken some of its bite out. The guns pen is starting to become dated. Camo is still top notch. It will bonce a few shots still but at a distance.

SU-100Y No camo big box easy target that's slow. But the gun is relevant still. Its a the Big Boom variety. May get gutted by the ammo change that is upcoming. Fun but difficult tank for new players to survive in.

 

Check You Tude videos before you buy. May help you decide.

 

Both will be difficult for you without 100% crews. Maybe frustrating unless you are gifted player at this stage of your WoT time.

They're both good in their own ways. the 122-44 is probably the best crew trainer because it doesn't need a spare loader like the SU-100Y does, and it plays similarly to the USSR TDs, but the gun is pretty potato and the penetration is bad. Top tier it's a major bully though.

 

SU-100Y gets an enormous cannon on a bad platform with no armor, not much speed and no camo. You can delete 3/4 of the HP of a tier 5 though, so good times.

Between the two, the SU-122-44 is by far the better/stronger one, tier for tier. However, is there a specific reason (other than price) why you wish to buy a Soviet TD? If not, I would suggest waiting until you've played a few more battles before buying any high-tier premium, as you don't yet know enough about the game at high tiers to figure out what you actually want to play. If yes, I would then go with the SU-122-44.

 

Keep in mind that, regardless of the power level of the tank, doing well requires skillful play; for most people with 150 battles, the skill required for high-tier play is too much, and familiarizing yourself with the game should come first.

Only the 122-44. It's a good tank. Great dpm and maneuverability. When top tier can play basically like a second line heavy, and it can brawl in occasions.

The Y is a box tank, no camo, no armor, only fun for oneshooting a few tanks.

Thank you everyone for your replies.  I will get the SU 122-44 since it is at a discount and keep it in the garage until I am ready for it.

Well, there is now, but it's not one you can purchase any time you want, so that's probably what you mean. SU-122-44 is a pretty good prem, since tier 7 gets good matchmaking most of the time. Do recommend.
