I've been working towards 3 marking, as well as getting 100% MoE, on the Centurion Action X so here is my highest combined damage game along with screenshots of noteworthy games along the way. It's by far my favorite medium tank in the game, even if it is outclassed by the Patton.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was the screenshot of the game in the video.

 

 

This was the 100% MoE game, not great by any means, but it was enough to go from 99.86 to 100.

 

 

 

 

Here are my stats in the tank as of now:

Nice! Centurion AX is great tank, unfortunately it's one of those tanks ruined by vacuum cleaner engine sounds, so I don't really wanna play with it anymore, sama thing with many other vehicles that have those same vacuum cleaner engine sounds.

This is one of my favorite tanks too.  May I ask, are you aggressive and forward, or do you play with good discipline and remain midrange?  I don’t have time to watch the vid right now.

My standard loadout of rammer, vert stab, vents. Also ran two large repair kits and a large med kit while marking, now down to small on all 3. I kept on getting ammo racked twice and since my crew has the snakebite skill I dropped the food.

I'm very aggressive in general. Especially in this tank if I can get hull down. I usually push pretty hard with this tank.

Congrats! I'd be curious to hear your thoughts on all the tier X mediums. I know you think highly of the M48, how do you feel about the how the rest of the Nato tanks perform against the Russians?

Yeah, it's mainly due to the Patton having so much to work with from HP, to dpm, to gun handling, and flexibility. Even though I don't thoroughly enjoy playing the Patton, it feels too easy.

 

The 30B is just downright outclassed, even with the gun handling buffs it received (which it now has better dispersion than the Patton), it's just that 248 pen at tier 10 just isn't enough. The BC 25t nerf was also extremely unnecessary, but WG will be WG.

 

The TVP was once viable, but with a 28 second reload it's just been left in the dust. It already hap mediocre dpm and now they've continued to kick it while it was down. The first nerf was completely unnecessary but workable, the second nerf killed it.

 

I have limited experience with both the E50M and the Leopard 1, but the both have very good guns and mobility. The problem is with the Leopard 1 is mainly due to with it being a rolling ammo rack and that it has cardboard armor. Which in itself isn't bad, but with how many corridor maps exist make this tank harder to perform well in.

 

The E50M has always had pretty bad dpm for a tier 10 medium and the nerf was beyond unwarranted, even though it was only 0.2 seconds. Its armor by far is more useful at tier 9 than tier 10, though the gun the E50M gets is exceptional. The main problems the E50M and Leopard 1 have is their tier 9 counterparts for the longest time were just so much better. Not so true of the E50 anymore, but the Leopard Proto is still much better tier for tier.

 

The STB-1 is a great tank so long as the gun doesn't troll you and the turret armor decides to work, otherwise it's going to be a brutal game.

 

I haven't actually played the 121, but honestly besides dpm I really have no idea what that tank has going for it.

 

K-91 needs a dpm and camo buff, then it'll be viable.

 

Obj 430 has just been left behind and the camo nerf was beyond stupid.

 

T-62A is still a good Russian medium, but imo is too situational to be reliably good.

 

Obj 140 is a great all around medium tank, really nothing bad to say about it.

 

430u is what the 113 wishes it was, I'd say it's either the tied best medium or second only to the Patton.

 

All in all, the Patton is the only one that stands above the good Russian mediums (430u, 140, and 62A). You could argue that some come close 3rds, but the Russian mediums have a lot going for them. The STB-1 is a good example of it having the potential to be the best medium tank so long as the gun and armor don't decide to just not work, which happens fairly often.

You couldn’t be anymore correct about the STB-1. When the gun works, it’s awfully good and the nerfs to the TVP and the BC 25 are above and beyond necessary. Consider the intra-clip reload of the BC and that sometimes the gun just doesn’t hit what you are aiming at. The 121 is pretty situational. On maps where the hotspots require gun depression, I personally struggle to make it work. I know better players have figured out how to do it and no doubt you will as well. 

 

Well done on the Cent AX

That is an interesting run down.  As you know, in another thread I was just complaining about how the game is treating high tier mediums.   The Patton seems to be a heavy basically trying to squeeze into a medium dress.   That isn't my kind of tank.   I prefer to play fast and aggressive...and I was thinking that maybe I should try the Leopard in the future (as opposed to the Cent 7/1 I'm in now).  But you concern with the Leopard is my concern in general.  The amount of corridor and city maps (and the amount of heavies in tier X) are not conducive to fast, lightly armored mediums.   I watched the vid, I'll keep grinding the Cent 7/1 until I mark it and unlock the CAX.

Thanks, and yeah I still don't quite understand the reasoning behind those nerfs barring just deciding to nerf any and all tanks that require skill to use. 

 

I'm going to eventually go about and 3 mark all the tier 10 mediums tanks, but I'll probably leave the 121 towards the end. I can't stand tank that aren't flexible.

The problem with the Leopard 1 is not dissimilar to those of other tanks with little armor, barring the ammo rack issues. Basically, anyone with an autoloader will yolo you because they'll go full aggro since they can almost guarantee pens. Unfortunately with the Leopard and others like it playing aggressive only works with people supporting you. The Cent 7/1 is really more similar to the old FV4202 because of the rounds, both apcr and hesh, as well as the speed. Luckily, the CAX gets a very noticeable boost to its mobility and dpm.
