Anyone enjoying this tank?

 

Cons:

3° of gun depression

Very slow in comparison to its cheesey armor

Simple to pen

Poor reload

Bad aim time

.48 accuracy with horrid dispersion

Consistantly in tier 8 games

 

Pros:

Nice damage if it actually hits something

 

I can't seem to make this tank work.

Btw, if I pen 4 shots in a match I feel lucky. If I pen 6 shots, I feel like I had an amazing game. I'm certainly not a fan of this tank.

ya, the armor is kinda useless unless you are the only  tier 6 in a tier 5 match or you get lucky and they shoot your lower plate. the accuracy  also makes it have to brawl or hope it can win the lottery. might as well play a KV-2

But this thing is amazing at sidescraping!

I sold mine. 3 degrees gun depression did it for it. It does hit hard for tier 6, but as other said, just play a KV2. It literally has nothing over it. 

 

Played 1 game, did OK, but then the Absolution became a thing. No need to keep it...

Its definitely a difficult tank to play for sure. I would be happy if the reverse speed got a buff so you could at least retreat from tier 8 gun fire. I give it a 3 out of 10 being generous.

Hardest tank to mark i have ever played . Binos, net and ammo rammer. Try playing as a sniper when in tier8 games. Tier 6 side scrape and annihilate everything.  The armor sucks, accuracy is lacking. It needs quicker aim reticle. Try not to get caught open anywhere, lights will party on you

Not a fan. Going to one mark it eventually then probably trash it.

The horrible aim and dispersion make sniping very iffy at best.

Yep, everyday that I play this piece of crap, I'm reminded of just how bad it is. I think I'd rather be in a Churchill Gun Carrier. :sceptic:

does not really have anything going for it except 390 average and the spaced armor, other than that it drives VERY slow backwards making retreating almost impossible unless you turn the entire tank around, it also has fairly weak engine,ammorack and fuel tanks. the only time that it was fantastic was when i was sidescraping (only show spaced armor, do not try to do regular sidescraping) this can easily bounce tier 8 guns if you do not show your turret either. but the accuracy kinda makes you useless wile siescraping unless you get VERY lucky. other than sidescraping the armor is fairly easy to pen unless you are fighting same tier or lower medium tanks or one of the tier 6 heavies with poor pen.

It’s a lol tank like a kv2. You drive this tank for the smiles of hitting someone for 400 plus damage and destroying half their modules.

On city maps it’s a beast. I would love a reverse speed buff

Change my mind....once I got used to this tank, it is fun to play.  I was pushing to far in and getting overwhelmed.....

When it’s late, I am having fun on WOT but I know I should be going to bed, I play this tank, the fun goes and I make my way to sleep land. I have tried to think of something positive but I have the majority of Merc tanks available and this is the worse by far imo. Only acceptable games in this have been city maps, where it’s flat (gun depression sucks), plenty of cover (arty and light magnet) and allows close up shots (accurate as a seagull shite at distance, could end up anywhere). Sorry, I remember the contract was fun.....that’s it

I think I've had one really good game (Ace and Top Gun) on Live Oaks, but that was a fluke as reds where all over the place. Apart from that, I'm not enjoying it at all. It's too map dependent with it's poor gun depression and reverse speed which leads to so much frustration. My 51% winrate is down to my team mates winning for me, as I usually contribute sweet FA in this. This tank was such a disappointment.

240 games played 55% win rate. Much better than my average win rate and you are right, every thing about it is meh except when you vaporize higher tier tanks that take a good look at you then shoot the T7 tank next to you...
