So much want!!!

 

But I really wish that WG would have a "no garage slot, here's some gold/credits/even lower price instead" option.  I have 69 vacant slots - I know, that's nothing compared to some of you - that are likely to never be used, and that number will only be growing over time.

Hah. I was about to not buy it, but then I noticed a coupon that brought its price down to two large pizzas.

 

More than slot, I start to get irritated by 100% crew, I ran out of gift tanks to stuff them in and had to start firing them >.<

Forgot to mention the "crew" thing!  Thanks!

Seem right.

The lump is about as fast as a pizza. 

 

WG advertises it as a FrontLines tank right?

What does a 30 kph paper sides and rear, almost zero traverse speed , 3.3 rpm,  .38 accuracy lump have that makes it a FL vehicle?

I am really suspicious when they drop it to the shop before the Community Contributors can release reviews.

Garage slots used to be harder to get, but now they sprinkle them everywhere. Same with 100% crews.

It's pretty slow moving and although the armor seems adequate at first glance, my guess is Gold spam will cut you to pieces. 50 KPH and paper armor is generally a better set up than 30KPH and thick armor because of that.

I'll watch some CCs before making a buy.

I hear you.  I'd love to sell them back - but that'll never happen.  Have received too many for free to find a way to justify it.

The way tier 8 works, 30mm of armor is as useful as 120mm.  Everyone is shooting 240 pen goldies.  So you might as well pick speed over armor. Skorpion is the most popular T8 for a reason.

Comparing it to the V45.02 B (which I like) it seems comparable ... though a tad suckier on DPM, though it is a tier lower.  What's weird is that the DPM is beaten out by the Leopard PT A.:amazed:

 

ETA:  I'd agree - some reviews would be nice.  PAGING GUIDO!!!!!!!  :teethhappy:

Well it will make frontlines more fun for wheelies and auto loaders. They never specified it was a frontlines tank in your favor.

Guido is a very kind, helpful, caring, and selfless individual when it comes to WoT stuff, and taking shameless advantage of those character flaws is not a sin.  :trollface:

Agree. Like being able to actually watch a WoT Youtube video without being bombarded by profanity. Props to Guido...
