So far I see a lot "John Waynes" playing the K, and doing really stupid crap in them.

Well, when you advertise a tank as having strong frontal armour...

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.

 

Seems like WG is going the route of hiding how bad tanks will be since the feedback for the British lights, just hope they won't go this route and completely cut out the players/cc's opinions.

LOL - Skill hates it. Quickybabby claims its a side scraping boss, but then NEVER actually shows any side scraping -LOL. Tank is fail.

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.

Not really with all the tanks that are now at tier 8 with the HEP/HESH 30mm of armor can get easily mangled by drivers who decide to fire these shells.

The "russian bias" "german hate" argument has kinda diminished when they made the germans have one of the best paper meds at tier 10, arguing like a typical GSH member wont get you anywhere

Odd. Just assuming it is due to rear turret placement?

It's worth it to me I guess. Will be buying it soon with a 20% discount. Going to actually have a premium German Heavy... Might actually make me grind the German Maus line after all... Just gotta get around to it after the IS-7 line...

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:

I wish.

 

NA CCs don’t have it.  There are some reviews by the EU guys. 

 

If if I get it you’ll certainly get a review.

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.

Be nice if we could sell them for 1/2 the gold they were worth. :honoring:
