I've been hearing a rumor that the FV216b tier X British tank is going to be changed to a premium and replaced with a "Super Conqueror"?


 

Anyone hear anything about this or know any details?

Our dev team typically does not replace tanks in the tech tree anymore. They tend to add them in as extras since the F4202 was removed. Hopefully they keep the Fv 215b as I am working towards it now. It still would be nice to have an offical answers.

Nope, not gonna happen here.

 

Considering we got the Grille and the Chieftain without either of the fakes being gotten rid of Pain ain't gonna start now.

On one hand, I hope not as that would be another line to crunch grind to, and I've only got as far as unlocking the Caernarvon. 

 

On the other hand, I hardly ever play Tier X anyway.

I swear if I have to buy back the Conqueror and grind *another* tier 10 tank, I'm just going to cry myself to sleep

I hated the thing personally, I genuinely find the M103 to be the better of the two honestly

I just hope it is better than the Caernarvon. I am not getting along with it at all.

It is.

That is good news, as the Caernarvon just feels so terrible at pretty much everything. It can't go hulldown, it can't sidescrape well, it can't angle well enough to bounce much, and on top of that it is stuck with terrible alpha damage. The pen is nice and the gun handling is good, but the alpha and platform are terrible for a tier 8 heavy.

it's really just another centurion and should be used the same way (ridge fighting)...unless you are the only tier 8 tank in a 6-8 battle (then you can bully a little, very little)

Will have to try this, the forehead on my turret just seems to get penned easily.

it's not impervious so don't stay exposed long, but you will appreciate the gun depression...try it, you will have more success than trying to play it like a "heavy"

At this point in time the Super Conqueror is not coming to console any time soon. PC is getting it soon.

When the Super Conqueror does eventually come to console, it is likely the FV215b will stay as this is the trend WGCB is oeaning towards.

Personally, I would rather have the FV215b removed as it is a fake tank (real world FV215b is the Deathstar in game).
