So I stuck a crew in my Conway ( not my charioteer crew, they're staying there).

And it's an ok tank.

Not what I was expecting at all.

A bit lacking in gun depression, but it's mobile and has an ok rate of fire and alpha.

I don't have the mega-doom-gun yet

 

Running with binocs, rammer at the moment.

My only complaint is that it has the troll accuracy like the charioteer. Where rng will decide to make you miss easy shots .

 

How are people playing theirs?

And is the final package worth getting?

The bigger gun is better, it at least has enough alpha to force an enemy to retreat, and the loss of the 360 degree turret is no big deal. It still trolls you with its accuracy though. The biggest issue with it is the lack of gun depression and elevation forcing you to be more exposed and it can't take a hit at all. It can work as a surprise shooter on flat terrain but the best thing to hope for is an open map where your team are able to push forward and spot for you.

:D What? Conway used to have -5 degrees and in patch 4.6 the Conway got a gun depression buff from -5 to -10.

 It still doesn't feel great; you can't ridge poke as that enormous turret is so easy to see and pen.

I agree but it’s not the gun View PostJodmeister, on 28 December 2018 - 10:19 AM, said:

It isn’t great but you can not say it is due to lack of gun depression. Depression is more than adequate

The Conway is nothing like the fun Charioteer. It’s got no stealth, is way less accurate than the suggested stats say BUT when you get into one of those games where you’re shooting over the top of your team mates, it’s a monster. Out of the two guns I use the tortoise gun as although it “only” hits for 4-500, it’s shoots bloody quickly and is way way WAY more accurate! Just to put it into perspective, the smaller gun shoots twice for every shot of the big gun. 

 

Dont get me wring, the big gun does hit hard when it hits but having the same pen as the smaller gun with half the reload just seems a little “meh”. If the pen was closer to 280, it would make way more sense....HESH rounds are fun though ;)

 

I think the big big gun is to get you used to the 4005 as it has roughly the same armour, fire rate and gun traverse. 

 

Just try both and see see what works better for you.

i played through the Conway about a month before the buff. Never played it with 10°, but the old 5° it had was just flat out terrible. I doubt it's amazing now, but it was absolute misery to play when you had to expose yourself so much to poke over a ridge.

I just started playing it today. Nothing but sixth sense, working on camo. I actually I'm liking it. It makes for a lousy medium tank, but when you get a chance to actually play it like a TD I find the 120mm to be extremely reliable. Feels like the T110E5 gun, but buffed. I'm surprised by the lack of hit points, but when you get the gun singing, magic can happen.

I am excited to try out the big gun, too. I kept a good crew in the Charioteer, but I think I'll move this crew to the 4005. However I think with a baller crew, the Conway could be awesome.

I tried it pre "buff" with the 120mm, which is a great gun but even with a 14 skill crew and all the camo/gun skills you always, always get spotted and focused and no matter how good your DPM is, it's not going to work in your favour.

 

I gave up on it because I just detested it as a tank.

 

Then tried it again with the new gun and tried the AP rounds, which were kinda ok...then tried HESH. It's hilarious. I took off the binocs/camo net and focused for gun handling - rammer/vents/vstab or GLD, whichever it is. Stopped trying to snipe and just went pure ambush/support, particularly with the  HESH.

 

That's the only way I learnt to enjoy this tank. Pick your spots carefully, obviously (hates tracks/low chance of pen shots) but you can be seriously annoying and a penning shot will shave off ~50% or more health and wreck modules/crew. I would roll with heavies, stick back a little and time my shots and ambush tanks.

I’m finding it quite frustrating at the moment. Most of that is matchmaking; 5 minute roflstomp tier X matches are not the place for this tank to shine. It’s frustrating how bad the gun handling is for the poor camo. You just never get a chance to fully aim. The big gun is an improvement over the 120 though. That gun is soooo much worse on this tank than on a Conqueror.

 

My biggest complaint about the tank is that I could do more damage in an SPG. Whereas, if I brought a Jagdtiger or T30, at least I could be further forward with all the spotting, bouncing and accuracy benefits that come with that. The Conway just seems like a poor-average TD.

Yeah, teams are bad at the moment, like really bad. It was bad over Christmas too but I think it's actually worse now.

 

Those new Soviets and Polish tanks don't help things either.

 

I gave up with the 120, I just couldn't get it to work consistently for me.

I hate it. I do terrible with it. Even with camo and camo crew it still gets spotted. I can't wait to be done with it. Worst tank in the line so far.

Conway needs the big gun, you're not small, flexible or sneaky enough to use the dpm of the 120. Use the big boom and make sure you can out trade your opponents because you won't be getting a whole lot of free farming action at tier 10 and 9.

Blast them, retreat and reposition while you reload, that's the kind of annoying Conway player that can give me a hard time. The ones that that decide to manfight with the 120 don't last long.

This. It was extremely frustrating. Really disappointing, because I really wanted to like it.

yeah i am finding this tank wasn't as fun as the charioteer.  The problem I have to agree with this tank is the camo just doesn't let it be effective as it could be.  The 5.5 is so inaccurate at the range you need to sit at so your not spotted and the 120 is accurate but doesn't have the punch needed to pierce at that distance so you have to spam premium if you want to have a chance at doing damage.  The peek a boom is nice if you can pull it off but who wants to be that close with no armor.  I was hoping after the charioteer this would be one of my keeper tanks but i think i will unlock the 4005. put my crew back in the charioteer and sell this one when i am done.

Have just put the 5.5 " gun on and Oh boy is it fun, the alpha really makes people think and the HE is good to whittle down tanks when they are hull down. Needs and aim time and dispersion buff though as its as big as a barn and has the armour of a tier 2
