A great write up on the pro's and con's...well researched and presented...

 

One premium tank I have and absolutely love is my SU-85i...

 

Bought it by accident, already had the SU-85 and tried to get my money back from WOT cause I didn't use it for a week.

 

Finally just gave in since the refund process would be through Apple they said...good luck there BTW...

 

Now, it really rocks.  Pros - Small and easy to hide, very fast and highly maneuverable, quickly re-loading, great gun which can do heavy damage for a tier 5, rarely need premium ammo (but I carry it anyway kind of like when I need a Swiss army knife).  Con's - Light armor and easy to penetrate...(Keep moving if you want to stay alive), fixed turret like any TD...

 

Oh yeh, and I sold the SU85 shortly there after...accidental purchase +1...

 

thanks! I editied your blurb and added it.

Thanks Looney! I'll add it up above and edit slightly if that is okay by you. Are you sure it isn't -1/+1 MM?

 

That's OK. Could be wrong on the MM haven't played it in a while, I remember that the +1 is right at least.

I know it's been said, but the Pz B2 is a great premium tank that I drive very well. A normal win rate for me is 52/53/54 % but with this tank, after 25 games I'm at over 85% win rate. This is a true seal club premium well worth $6.

Hey Pitt, if you want to write it up I'll add it! I don't have it so don't know enough and also it tends to be one of those offered only occasionally tanks as opposed to regularly offered.

Thanks for the info. I was just looking at the current premium tanks, wondering if they would be worth the cash? This covers one of the two (ram II).

I may not go down in history but I will go down on your M.O.M.!

there will probably be a Ram II review in my future... If WG would give it preferential matchmaking it would be a great tank. It's stil a good tank but the matchmaking isn't as much fun for a low damage low penetration tank. Which is the other tank you are considering?

Excellent write up!!!  +1

I've got the AT15a and am loving it, if I get some time at my desktop I'll do a write up on it. Seems like it's still a mixed bag on how well I see people doing in it - I think it's different enough from other TD's that most folks rent utilizing it to it's fullest (not that I'm an expert)  as a sniper it's ok, but as a true Assault Gun it's pretty formidable.

The other tank is the pz s35. seems to be a decent tank, especially for us new typeS in the medium arena and its still a lower tier vehicle.

Yes I know this is true in the IS-6. Never see tier X tanks. Great for the Win Rate.

Not that I'm aware of... at 850hp it's not the highest Tier VII (but the front armor makes up for it, imho), and I see Tier V and ...   well, I went and looked back through some reports, and while I'd swear I've faced ST-1's and other Tier IX's in it, I can't show it.  Hmmm, I thought it was -2/+2, but now I'm going to have to drive it some more and confirm...
