As stated in the title I just bought this tank two days ago and absolutely love it. The tank is borderline OP as it is a straight up better Cromwell then the tech tree version. The track traverse speed is just so much better and gives you so much more flexibility . I know Ive only played 20 matches so far but ive had 5 ace tankers and 4 top guns in those matches and is the best start I've had on a vehicle. Im very surprised I have not seen more of them on the battle field with the tank being for sale currently in the premium tech tree. And that's all I've got to say about that just had to give a shout out to one of the best purchases I've made in this game.

I earned the tank in an Op but if I spent actual money I would not be disappointed. Amazing little tank in looks and performance.

I love this tank, only played it a few times because of op's and different grinds, but it's an amazing tank.  It and the snakebite are very fun tanks to play.

There was a lot of discussion on this last summer during the earn op. I think the conclusion was that it was essentially identical to the TT cromwell, one had like 2 degrees better traverse, the other better ground resistance. I can't seem to find those threads now, though.

 

Still a good tank, but not different enough from the TT version to make me buy.

It's a great tank,  the xp requirement is low for ace badges on that tank and will be until a bug is fixed.  So if your looking for an easy ace along with a brilliant tank, look no further than the Cromwell B.

I only played 3 matches in it, I found it more OP than the 131.   Take that as you will.

I have more Ace Tankers in this than any other tank. I adored the TT Cromwell, and this is a better version of it. I chose the Berlin as my award tank over the Chieftain, and have no regrets.

I was interested in it before..... I earned the M4 Rev over the Crom B, as I didn’t have enough time to get both during that one earn op. 

 

I have the Knight and hardly ever play it, so I feel as though even if I buy the Crom B I’d probably never use it much either.

 

Regardless, the Cromwell is an excellent tank and should be in everyone’s garage (in either TT or premium form)!!

 

EDIT: I also have the Snakebite, which I’ve been playing more and more of these days!

That was a good move my Chieftain just collects dust in my garage

I was in a match yesterday and there was a snakebike driver on the enemy team.   Let me just say, what an annoying little [edited]he was! Lol

 

We did end up the winning the match tho.   Although I didn’t notice he died until the match was over so I’m guessing one of my teammates must’ve smoked him before the other 2 tanks were destroyed.

Same here.   I just can’t bring myself to play it anymore.   It just seems so underwhelming.

The Knight was one of my favourite early premiums. Loved it. But then I bought the snakebite...... and now I don't play the Knight at all because it just feels so sluggish in comparison.

Can't agree that the Bromwell is better than the Cromwell, they are both good but the Cromwell has a chance of hitting something on the move and since it isn't a tank for sitting in got to say that makes the TT the better tank IMO

A platoon of these bad boys is a formidable sight. We have them all decked out in the same camo with the same flags. Looks awesome!

Oddly enough, I passed on the CromBell when it was earnable because I thought the tire on the turret looked silly. More the fool am I.

Be verbose - you have a vocabulary for a reason.

 

Good with words; bad with tanks. At least I can talk you to death.

It is OP, but I won't say that. Pffft.

I eneded up buying it because in the Op I went for the Chieftain, which I barely played. I haven't played the Crom B that much too, but I remember mastering it and earning 2 Top Guns in the first 4 matches with it - I'm not much of an underarmored tank, I belong in the first line of combat - which was very imnpressive for me.

The Cromwell tanks are some of the best in the game and the most fun. The great thing about them is their flexibility, scouts when they need to be, snipers when the need to be, they can circle many tanks, brawl especially with other friendly tanks, have mobility so can snatch a win or save a loss, great with flanking and great for cleaning up during the end of a battle. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine.
