After the long grind of the AT line, I finally got the Fv215b 183, I played 4 matches and lost all 4.   First match I did 2700+ damage, 2nd match 1000+, 3rd 0 damage, 4th 500+ damage.   I don't know how I feel about it but I'm not impressed, maybe it's cause I lost 4 straight in it, it kinda kills any enthusiasm I had for it.   The Tortoise as much as I hated it early on, I came to like it to some extent.   The gun is fantastic, probably one of my favourite guns in the game to use but the low rolls of sub 400 is too often, I don't know how many times I rolled for 370, but it was a lot.   I'm not a fan of slow tanks so I doubt I will play the Tortoise again but I'm gonna keep it hoping the next patch will buff it's front armour as the armour especially that cupola is left to be desired.   I just can't stand the 20kmh the most, just way too slow for my liking.   My grind for the Maus stopped at the VK 100.1 P although elited, just too slow for me.

 

The mobility was a nice change of pace once I started with the Fv215b 183, but I just can't see myself playing it very much to be honest at all.   I mean, 4 straight losses right off the bat and really not able to do anything in 3 of the 4 matches leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

 

Tortoise 19 battles, 14 wins, 2885 average damage, wn8 3394.22

Fv215b 4 battles, 0 wins, 1091 average damage 1091, wn8 448.66 (now a poop stain on my stat page)

 

Any reason to keep playing the Fv215b 183 hoping I get better in it or no, just drop it?.

Use the Premium HESH... if you currently are not. Expensive, but maximum lulz to be had.

HESH LOLs are basically the way to go.

 

Just imagine ruining some Tier 10's day by smacking them for almost all of their HP with one shot :great:

ONE OF US! ONE OF US!  :trollface:

 

Seriously, though, I load about 1/2 AP and 1/2 HESH.  Can be a little feast or famine in this TD, but a few good HESH hits can really make you giggle in sadistic glee....

It has its days, today you low roll and tomorrow you high roll. I've hit lights at full speed from 400+ yrds and I've had shells go straight into the ground while firing at arty 50 ft in front of me. Bounces alot of shots off the turret and can intimidate even the best players. It's just a mobile arty basically, sometimes it hits hard and sometimes it just splashes.

this tank with premium hesh can ruin a E-100's day, even if shot into the skirt of the tank.

Usually 2-6-6 loadout if you want to play not losing to much silver use the shells to the right for jageroos or mause use AP or just spam the goldshells everywhere if you like to be sure of making havoc.

 

A nice perk is snakebite on this tank if you can afford to buy one more or change yours.

 

It also sets on fire quit easily so mainanance and firefighting is required among the first 8,s

8 HESH and 4 AP here. Enough to make every big tank cry. I love to shoot at JP E-100 in his lower plate. Always a feast...Also like the WT E-100 his big turret...It feels a bit like payback. Everytime I'm very frustrated...I roll out in the Deathstar with HESH loaded.

 

But you have to know where to shoot every tank. No spaced armor or tracks...Everything else is golden.

Must admit I had about 4 games in mine before I sold it, just wasn't fun. Can understand why some like it, but then some people play arty too, although I wouldn't say this was as broken as arty something aint right about it.

I load all hesh in mine and some days it works and others it doesn’t. Lately though the game play doesn’t seem conducive to running it. I’ve had some good games but not as often as I use to. You need lights to spot and heavies to leave the base and mediums to support. Right now everyone’s worried about the merc ops and trying to complete them so your support isn’t gonna happen right now. You support the heavies but if they don’t leave he base and snipe it’s hard to support them and have a good game.

just to let you know, hesh is not required to do well in it i only use ap mostly and do just fine in it but expect people to be all going for you and firing gold at you even though they cant pen you with that either because they shoot the turret :P

As others have said use mostly HESH with maybe a few AP. Don’t bother with the HE.  While expensive to run the HESH will either kill what you hit outright or make what you hit wish it was dead. 

 

Also, don’t go off on your own. You will be a priority target and you have a long reload. Pop out and erase a tank and then fall back behind the greens while you reload and repeat. And you can even sometimes bluff people into hiding while reloading as no one wants to be shot by one. Just point your gun at them so they think you’re just waiting for them to expose themselves and watch them hide or even run away from you. 


I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

Thanks for some of the advice guys. I did play one more before I went to sleep last night, did 3700+ damage and we won so after that, I just shut it off and said, go to sleep on a good note haha.   I played one match today, and zeroes across the board ugh.   The aim is dreaded that’s for sure, I had side shot on a M103 no more than a 100 meters and my shot hits dirt, then I get set on fire twice.

 

I was disappointed to find out you couldn’t put a vertical stabilizer on it so I went for Coated Optics instead.

 

For equipment, I’m running rammer, vents and optics, should I use a GLD over optics for that horrible aim time?.

 

Also, I trained this crew specifically for this TD while going up the line.

 

Crew skills, Sixth Sense, BiA, Repairs, Track repairs, Firefighting, and now currently learning Snap Shot.   Anything worth mentioning?.   I’m guessing camo skills are useless.
