What’s up Y’all?  I have had the Conqueror for about 4 years now. Quit playing it because of frequent ammo racking even though I had the Safe Storage perk, I was getting ammo racked like Sh****.  The turret was troll as hell, even some tier Vlll heavies were penning me. As you should know, you could not brawl in it because your lower plate was like card board. You couldn’t side scrape because any slight over angle, you would get penned. In tier lX and 10 matches, your gun was substandard.  But…… Not no more!!! The recent upgrades to this tank is awesome. The top gun is deadly. I was in a match when I was hitting for 500 damage. The turret is bouncy as hell now and I don’t get ammo racked no more, maybe once in 20 battles. I can side scrape now and bounce shots.  With the smooth ride skill, and a vert stab, you can shoot on the move good as hell. The only drawback is the decrease in reload speed, and it could have just a little bit more gun depression, so with that being said, I gonna say” the Conqueror is the best all-around Tier lX heavy tank. WG you did a real good job on this tank.

 

Check out some recent battles I had

Troll turret... sub-par gun... not for me before transforming it in the hideous aberration it is now in aesthetic terms.

But yeah, if it was a good tank, now it's superb.

The gun and pen are good. I enjoy it. I kept mine after I got the chieftain and just unlocked the 215b and now working on super conq.

Why does the Tier IX Conqueror get the Super Conqueror turret? That doesn't make any sense.

It's not the Super Conq turret. It's just the standard turret with spaced armor added. The tier X turret is shaped a little differently.

I’m probably not all that great at playing the Conqueror yet, but honestly I don’t know what all the hype is about.  It doesn’t seem to *me* to be anything remarkable.  Maybe I’m missing something, or misunderstood why this tank seems to be a favorite.

It’s got a strong turret and one of the best guns in the game with 10 degrees of gun depression. Could it be you’re not playing to it’s strengths?

Really didn't need the turret armor buff or GD buff. Side hull armor buff was needed imo. But thank god WG didn't "nerf" the reload like PC did to compensate for the armor/Gun Depression buff....... :facepalm:

Will WG ever have WoT offline like they promised?

Gun is good as always.

There must be a good guide on Conqueror out there. It’s always been a favorite of mine as well and agree that it’s even better now. Dropping the A/B barrel 20 pdrs in favor of the 32 pdr is an upgrade IMO. Still not a real brawler tho.

The gun has always been the best things about the Conqueror and arguably one of the best heavy tank guns in the tier.

I loved the tank before the changes. The added armor was a bonus and I have noticed several bounces lately. Though I still play it like it has paper armor. This 500k xp is going to be fun! Has the reload gotten just a tad longer?

Edit. Egad, the Conqueror got a huge buff. It certainly didn't need it. Why would they have nerfed the 113 and the STB? Doesn't make sense.

If before there was some doubt what was the best Tier 9 heavy (it's a very strong category and tons of contenders...) now Conqueror is squarely #1, and everyone else is fighting for 2nd place. 

Might be


1. Conqueror
2. T-10
3. WZ 1-4
4. ST-I
5. M103
