No buff for the Centurion 1 with its rof.

You can lead a horse to water, but in this game, you have to carry the horse to win.

Loving the cent 7/1 now after the much needed buff to the speed. Reload makes a huge difference now too.


Any idea when the fv4202 is going to get its speed buffed? It is in need of a bit of love from you guys.

Thanks

I'd say it does. Or at the least a bit of love.

 

The alpha is the worst of the tier VIII med guns, and it still has one of the the lowest DPMs of all the same tier meds (even the Type B buff only gives it 0.16 more). It also has the most expensive ammo of tier, with its shells costing 680, which is certainly not worth the 8 pen it gets over the STA1 at 380 silver per shot. So it has low dpm but at the same time the highest cost per minute.

 

It's not even an accurate gun, famously accurate on the move irl even with vert stab it's hard to hit the side of a barn door with the 20pdr while moving.

 

On PC the Cent did get a buff up to 8rpm, while tragically the 4202 did not. The 4202 really does need some help now, 35kph is painfully slow, and not worth the small bit of front plate armour it has over the Huntsman. It should at the least get the Type B stats (which it mounts) if they're not going to buff its speed or earnings.

Thanks WG - but now you need to bring the FV4202 into line. Given it was the "40 ton Centurion" it's current performance doesn't make sense. Hint: make it quicker

The L7 could do with a reload of 9. 9 seconds.  Then at least with a RoF of 6 rpm it would stand a chance of competing with its peers

 

If I could balance it however I wanted, I would give it a 10.7 second base reload. This would make it the lowest DPM by almost 200 when firing apcr, and the highest DPM when firing HESH (and penning). I would also make the HESH a non-premium round, ditch the HE, and add a slightly higher pen HEAT round as the premium round. This would make the tank have the very interesting decision of getting good pen or good damage (and it would be a true choice unlike the T-54 guns).

Why weren't tank changes announced on the portal news?  This is pretty shady and sets a terrible precedent in my book. Nobody's upset because the changes were buffs. But what if they nerfed a tank instead?

Please announce tank changes in the portal news instead of an easily missed forum post.

Can the Caernarvons 20 pounder type B barrel get a RoF buff it desperately needs to compete with the other tier 8s? Going from 7.69 RPM to 8.69 RPM seems fair. Also the ammo cost is way to expensive at 680 silver per round. I suggest at least halving its cost, so people can actually make decent silver in it. The Tiger Is 88mm ammo only costs 250 per shell and deals 240 alpha, while the Caernarvons 20 pounder (84mm) deals 230 alpha. Just thought i'd point that out.

Ain't got enough +1's for this post. If you folks are going to make balance changes, a formal announcement on the portal seems appropriate.

^ they are right WG. Make it known to all on the news screen, not some hidden topic on the forums.

Agreed. Yet another example of WGCB's communication issues...

The economics of running the Cent 7/1 needs some attention.

Ammo and repair costs seem way over other similar tanks. I rarely make any cash in this thing, and often lose a metric [edited]-ton.

Is the survivability below par too? If so, it's a double-whammy with frequent garage trips and expensive parts.

WG need to find another supplier for ammo too. Expensive and poor alpha, coupled with the above just compounds the problem.

Sure, it's not the worst, but its right up there. I've got a real downer on this tank right now.

WOT OFF. 7 days a week, 1800 to 2000 GMT, Tier III to X on the Europe Server.

The centurion 7/1 has one problem and it's the bloom and aiming time of the gun it's the worst by far and combined with a piece or utter garbage turret front you have a tank with 10 degrees of gun depression but an inability to use it at all even against tier 7s.  Unless your driving a French medium typically turret mantlets should be tough and this thing mantlet can be penetrated by tier 7s it needs to be looked at. I would prefer a usable gun over a faster firing gun imo

For credibility on the centurion I have played almost a thousand games in in it and I have two marks of excellence.....not bragging because that's not really that good just stating that I have insight into the tank.
