That's just the thing: It's a Tier-8 equivalent to the T-14 Heavy. The armor works until the smaller tanks spam gold, and your gun will work on equal-tier tanks; as soon as you do the same.

 

You're correct. It's not all as bad as some of the comments have said. But it certainly isn't up to par until you load the APCR. I don't want to play that way. And I don't think I should have to if the FCM has a far better gun with preferential matchmaking.

We are in agreement. On the other hand I doubt Wargaming will give the Brick a better gun and a PMM. If they do something it will be a buff for the gun or a PMM ! For instance they buff a few monthes ago the gun of the Type 59 Patton. Before the Type 59 Patton had not really a better gun than the Type 59, had a more vulnerable turret and no PMM. Now, with 212/250 mm penetration, the Type 59 Patton performs well without a PMM !

I don't want PMM for the Brick. I like giving grief to higher-tier tanks. However, the Brick's current gun doesn't let it do that. I think that in the Brick's case; the effectiveness of the gun is half of the tank's armor. The E-50M can get away with a slow-ish gun at Tier-10 (for a medium) because the gun can do damage reliably. It also gets around much better.
