The platoon and I were dying laughing.  Is there anything more fun than doing this to a Japanese Heavy tank?

Japanese (tier 8-10) super heavies are some of the most inefficient tanks in the game.  Load premium, tank dies.

Abuse their slow speed/lack of gun depression and flank, problem solved.  Most of these types of tanks depend on the enemy team being foolish.  Another example, I was on Ghost Town about a week ago and there was a T95 holding down a corridor.  Instead of disengaging,and either mopping up easier targets first, or flanking to get better shots, most of the team fought the T95 head on.  They got slaughtered and the T95 had a monster game.  The T95 rampage could have been avoided with some basic tactics.

Perhaps you should wrap your head around the concept that forums are for complaining.  Not many customers go out of their way to express their satisfaction with a product.  You go to bitch and moan when you think something is wrong.  Not when it works like you think it should.  That is why forum posts are always going to be skewed toward the negative.

They want the illusion of accomplishment, but not the effort associated with it. The players aren't really doing anything, something else is doing it for them, and the player takes the credit for it.

​It is amazing how people don't use the proper strategy.  With the on track event these tanks are all over the place.  I can't count how many times I have heard "look out its an Oh-__" as I watch them drive off in another direction.  They are easy to handle if you know how to deal with them.  Did I know I was going to take a hit pulling off this maneuver?  Sure did... but it put me in a spot to deal with it.  Too many people worry about not taking any hits as opposed to taking a few to make the correct move.

But, what are you supposed to do if you are on PlayStation?  It would be nice if our Xbox brethren were willing to share their secrets.

How to deal with a Japanese heavy = drive the least armored tank in the game (lights)

 

According to the teams I've played on lately, shoot HE and 40 them to death.
