Now that I know I can use lower tier tanks to complete missions in Blitz, I was wondering if the current bundle with the Pz II J and Gross Tracktor for $5 is worth it. Also, how is the Hydrostat on Blitz?... It's alright on console, but nothing special. 

 

Thanks in advance for showing this tater tot the light :honoring:

I have all of these. I enjoy the PzIIj and the GTraktor, but the Hydro is really really underwhelming.

Dang, I was hoping the Hydro was better on Blitz. I like mine on console, but like I said, it's not a turd, but it's also not anything special. I was thinking of taking a flier on it here on Blitz since its $6 and comes with 2 weeks premium time, but if you say it's super underwhelming, I think I'll pass.

 

Thanks again for the info RonaldusMaximus :great:

not really, the pzii J is horrible because it can easily get penned frontally now by the German tier 3 (can't remember its name) which is the seal clubbers tank of choice to everywhere. So its just fat slow and has the worst gun in the game.

and the Grosstracktor isn't very good its just a big gun tier 3 with low dpm and armour

I respectfully, deeply disagree. The Pz II J's 80mm of frontal armor still rocks at tier 2, 3, and even against tier 4 if used carefully. Sure some people can pen you now, but back in the day tier 2's could pen you with APCR, so not much has changed for this tank--still well armored versus the competition and still, appropriately, not invincible versus the competition.

 

Also, the Pz II J just got a penetration buff in update 7.2, making life a lot easier :)

It's not the RNG, the MM, the diameter of your shell, the thickness of your armor, or the number of premium rounds you carry that counts ultimately; it's the courage in your heart, the calmness in your mind, the hope and faith you have in your team, and the way you use what's at your disposal that truly determines Victory.

I've noticed something cool about German 160 alpha guns at tier 5 like we find on the Hydro. They all have low shell velocity. If you trade a little bit of aim time to get the velocity boost, the gun then feels much more responsive. Because the shell arrives faster to the spot you aimed it at, the accuracy really feels cool. And that can really make guns like the Hydro, Anko, and Pz. IV G have feel a whole lot more interesting and fun to run :)

Interesting. I will try that with my Pz IV G. I have struggled with that tank which bums me out because I absolutely love my Pz IV H on console. Thanks for the insight!

On the eu server instead of the hydro you can get the kv220 beta test tank.

The pz II j just got buffed so it cn actually damage its opponents, the thing is a seal clubbers dream because no one can pen you, Grobtraktor is meh now that it doesnt have HE anymore but it can still win most trades.

I have 400 rounds of APCR loaded in mine. Do not bother to load AP.

The Gross-Out Tracktor can be

tremendously "OP" in tier 3 and 

many times tier 4 when platooned

with an IS-4.

My PZ II J came up as a birthday tank last week.  I also discovered that playing it counts against the “win 4 games in light tanks” mission.  So I played 5 games and got Masteries in two (and I’m a noob).  In a 3/2 game, it can still rule but in a 4/3 game have to be a little more careful.  I just wish the teams understood how to support one.
