Decided to take out the nameless for a spin, and next thing you know, everyone and their mom could pen the upper plate. I was concerned and went to check, yep, not only is the bottom plate a massive weak spot, the upper armor got decreased as well.  Top it off with the non existent gun depression makes it rather inflexible.Sure, its still fast for a heavy, but has no side and rear armor and turns worse than my 1968 four door bell air (all mechanical). Such a waste for what once was a one trick pony (frontal armor) to being useless. 
“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

Ok, I dont know then, even being top tier, I was getting penned way,way way too easily, without exposing the sides.

Nameless is great, i am not specialist in heavies but my last game was a 7vs7 in tiers X and with a FV4005 we upset the game.

Upper plate and lower plate are weakspots but you can move the turrets to bounce like the E100 in the video. It's really funny. :trollface:

I know how to angle, its just weird that every other shot out of a chrisler k and defended was getting thru the upper plate. 

Gun depression is still [edited]in this game.

Hide the lower plate and wriggle the turrets to not be penetrate by the front. I have tried after watching what the E100 do. It is weird to do but it works. I do the same with armour td, i wriggle the tank and i bounce many shots. Not skill just knowledge.

Everybody can penetrate the upper plate, but if you do that you can bounce many shoots. Looks Indoor Man videos, two awesome games to understand the advantage of the nameless.

Depression is bad but if not it will be the most OP tank.
