Hey all,

 

I currently have 12.2k Gold saved up (from video ads and good deals on certain bundles) and I'm looking for an exciting Tier 8 Premium to add to my collection. The German Bulldog has caught my eye due to its HEP, light tank camo, and mobility, and I feel that the price tag of 8000 Gold is fairly reasonable. 

So- what do all y'all think? I've read conflicting posts/ guides on how the Bulldog is broken OP due to HEP, while others say that it is poorly equipped to deal with the Tier 8 meta. With this in mind, would you recommend that I purchase the Bulldog? I feel that the novelty factor won't wear off for a long time, but I'll leave it to all y'all- is the Bulldog worth it, or am I better off waiting for other Premium tanks (eg; Skorpion G, WG OP Chinese TD, etc)?

 

Thanks,

It’s probably one of the funnest tanks in the game imo.   I  Don’t think it’s OP.  But it’s definitely a good tank and fun as hell

I don’t have the bulldog but it seems like a good and fun tank form all the gameplays I have seen. It’s got amazing 100 mm He pen, but otherwise it ain’t special. If I were you I would wait for another more exclusive tier 8-10 tank. IMO there are better tanks out there that have way more value than a simply high pen HE and some mobility. But if you want a fun tank and you’re good with lights it’s worth the buy.

I'm sitting on some gold waiting for the amx 301st prototype ir the Chieftain MK6, but this thing is really tempting me, i re bought the tier VII bulldog just to see if i would enjoy the cruel twist and got a mastery on my first battle... Even more tempting lol.

It doesn't feel as fast as the m41... When you put it next to an ru it's actually sluggish.

 

But yee yee, fun tank that I play poorly.

Yeah i know it is a bit more sluggish than the ru but still has great mobility from what I've seen.

i_bought_my_stats, YOU will do well in it since you're a semi-competent player that can find the forward and fire buttons but you could also do high damage driving a u-haul truck. IF the choices were ONLY limited to bulldog, skorp, or WG I'd get the skorp (cause the RU is a fine alternative) but I luv luv luv the bulldog. You won't regret getting it and who knows when the skorp comes back right? (prolly next week with your luck)

As seen getting lucky on Littlefinger101 Youtube channel

Also remember it has 240 alpha instead of the RU's 225. A nice bonus for when you can only get one shot off, and of course the extra HEP damage (320 compared to the RU's 270).

If you enjoy and are decent at tier VIII lights the German Bulldog would make a good addition to your garage.  It's a fun and competitive tank and it is refreshing to turn a nice profit while playing a light at that tier.

If you have no experience or if you don't enjoy playing lights this is not the tank for you.  This is not another mindless tier VIII heavy.  It requires thought and situational awareness to do well in.

Rest in Peace CJ.  You will be missed.
