 And the price was right, wow, unlike WG to price so low. With a coupon, I got it for less than 30 bucks.

Lots of them playing Frontline.

 

Thankfully there are many chances to flank and get side shots on them.

Tough Call though...    Big one can Buy it's own Equipment, but doesn't get the 30 Days with it...        But the 5K Gold would be Nice too...    And the 20% Discount I have knocks the Big One down to $66 and the 30 Days and gear to $47...

Corridor specialist, Achilles heel is being flanked so you will be at the mercy of teammates to protecting your sides.

Reading that just made me wonder why doesn't WG let us pick the vehicle we want after we see what map it's going to be?

Join a battle as the class you want to be, then pick your specific tank after the map is revealed.

 

Even with my tiny 900 games there's been times I wished I was in another vehicle because of the map.

You will have to plan well in advance where you are going before the match starts and what to do if your team bails on you. You will have to know the defendible positions (strong points) on maps and bully your way through opponents, you can't run or hide from trouble. Anticipating what both teams will do is important because you have to plan ahead of time. 

 

Think of the Yamato (Japanese battleship) very powerful and intimidating but on its own vunerable to lesser adversaries (it was sunk by aircraft).

If I hadn't just picked up the skoda, I'd be more tempted.  Looks like a decent tank on paper, without being terribly OP.  I'll probably wait, as they'll sell it again later most likely.  Maybe even for gold.

They do, it's called Frontlines but doing so on regular maps would be a nightmare (imagine all three tier heavies on Himmelsdorf or all wheeled vehicle on Prok).

Half the game is trying to make the most of a bad situation and pushing to fix it.

It's probably what it should be but it's not for me, heavies are my least favourite class and I suck playing rear turreted tanks, it is oddly cheap for a heavy though, especially if you have a coupon. Might think about it but I have the Lowe, 45.03 and 131 so don't rally need another trainer.

You shouldn't buy this tank.  You should gift it to me!  ;)

Yes with a coupon I just couldn't pass, a tier 8 heavy for just a tad over 30 bucks. I haven't played it in randoms yet because of FL but it does pretty good side scraping once the fighting is in the city.

 

I watched Skills review before I bought it but it didn't deter me because he played the first 3 games like a idiot, after he got serious the tank performed much better. It is definitely NOT OP and the price is right, should provide some enjoyment, especially with the right map and MM. The 490 alpha is yummy!

I picked mine up today as well.

 

Kicked my Mauerbrecher to the curb as soon as I saw it in the Super Test leak.

 

I really like it, its a beast on the right map. I've had some battles where I've blocked ridiculous amounts of damage, and others where I fell on my face.... but I'm not the best side-scraper. Gun is brutal if you can stop and actually let it aim.... absolutely no trouble scoring repeated hits on weak spots.
