Same here, but grinding the ISU 152 destroying tanks is not a problem!

I have the slayer and yes, the lol’s of derp are real. I didn’t get a chance to look thru my tanks and see what other tanks have roughly the same mobility and gun performance. I’ll try tommrrow to get an idea.

I know a lot of players are kill stealing for ops like this but they don’t get chance when that boom stick strikes home. If it doesn’t one shot it sets them on fire lol

I figure on a average day of playing I should get around 15-30 kills a day. It won’t take that much time to get 80. I have 42 days left in my contact so no hurries.

Looked it up and it’s almost same stats as my warlord panther, only little less gun but higher view range.

I enjoy my warlord panther a lot so I should enjoy this too

Thanks for reminding. My crew just adds muffled shot so hopefully kill two birds with one stone with that tank

It's a waste of time. Once you get it you will be yoloed by everyone and he spammed because it's an open top tank. It also only has 126 mm of pen on standard ammo at tier 7. They need to scrap these Merc lines because this isn't even a good attempt at hiding a cash grab anymore. This tank has no true role it can play.

 

They need to buff that standard pen to at least 150 or 160 and give the premium ammo higher pen as well. This is just insulting at tier 7 to have that kind of pen in a medium. Tired of them wasting resources on garbage.

I enjoy the challenges for the rewards and dusting off some old tanks.  All adds up for Winter Ops too.

That is the only good thing about the contracts, but when you get to the end the reward should be Superior to the other rewards in the contracts. In this case it's an insult to the player grinding it.

It's funny how it's a silver leech just like the tank it's hull is made for.

Yes it will bleed silver for someone who cannot make the standard ammo work. Otherwise the gun is workable, the view range/concealment are good, and the hull is very robust, it bounces a lot especially yoloers who auto-aim. And like Ivan Drago, whatever it hits, it destroys. I never really understood passing judgment on something without experiencing, but secretly a little glad it's getting a sub-par reception. It means they won't be a dime a dozen on the battlefield.

At tier 9 it is not workable. Almost every tank has more armor than it has pen. Even with premium. I will have to play it a lot to figure out what to do with it, but first thoughts on it is that it is not a good tank at all.

My experience is a little different, but you may be correct in that it is not the easiest tank to do well in. And mea culpa, I did not know you had already played it.

Ive played 3 games and the gun is really bad. I feel like they were just being lazy and didn't bother to update the gun performance for the tiers that it sees. In all three games I was yoloed by at least one tank because of the new tank smell and two times I barely survived and the third time I didn't survive. Getting hit anywhere in the turret seems to break it and the gun. So far I've had bad experiences in it. I hope it gets better, but the gun is subpar for what it will meet the majority of matches played.

^ I just got my XB One and still haven't played with the clip upload feature yet. I'll try and add something to this or another thread with the way I usually engage in this tank in the near future. May help those deciding to grind or offer another alternative for those looking to sell it.

I don't understand why they would give it such bad pen when other Merc vehicle a tier lower have substantially more pen such as the reach and absolution. It was lazy. They didn't want to bother with changing gun stats. More copy paste bull that they seem to be repeating over and over.

 

If you found a way to make it work that's great, but there are going to be some angry people when they get this and cannot hurt most of the tier 9 tanks they encounter bottom tier and they will be bottom tier A LOT.

I've Mentioned elsewhere that this can real do with having the T71 CMCD's 76mm

 

Gun will go from 128 Pen to 145 Pen (Prem 177>210)

Damage 115 to 150

 

It will lose 5 rnd a minute and some soft stats, but that gun can work at Tier 9


Chaffee ***, M10 Wolverine ***, Hellcat **, Fury **, Easy 8 ***, M6 ***, T29 ***, T71 **, T69 **, Comet I IT34 **, T34 85 ** T150 ***, KV4 **, VK30.01D III III III, VK30.01M III III, VK30.02D III III, Tiger P III III,
