I should have enough time tomorrow to play a few battles and put a basic vid together. However i figured i'd leave the choice of tank up to you guys. You can pick one via the poll but feel free to post why you picked any particular tanks. Maybe you want to know how to beat it, or if it is worth buying. Perhaps you have it and just want a few tips. I've kept the choice of tanks to those that available in the store atm. You can vote for as many tanks as you want, didn't want to lock people into just 1 vote for 1 tank.

Defender because I can't decide if it's any good. I've seen them do well and I've seen them get wrecked. It's so hard to tell with the current meta.

 

The Tiger 131 is an easy one. The video is "It's OPAF and now every numpty and his goat have one so Tier VII is crawling with them. It's basically like the V/IV at Tier V or the Abomination at Tier VI. Well played WG".

FV201, so I can figure out if I want to do a Trade In for it or not.

I vote for Somua and Patriot. Patriot is fake heavy tank and there is something wrong with its MM, cause this tank gets to be bottom tier in tier X matches a lot! Actualy I can't remember one time when I was top tier in Patriot, but I mean top tier with lower tier tanks in game. Somua is better imo, but takes time to adopt to that 40 sec reload.

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

The unskinned Yazi.

I'm pretty sure I'm buying the bundle it's in. I know I'm trading the Brit TD for a 13 57. I want to know if I should trade the Yazi for a MM T29. I don't think I want the MM as I still play my TT T29 on the reg and the mobility and slower gun doesn't sound fun.

I forgot the Minuteman and 13 57 were available too. I should have added those as well. If people post to vote for those i'll make sure to include them in the overall results when it comes to selecting a tank for review.

The Defender's a good tank ruined by its awful gun, the armour's great but the gun will drive you crazy :)

I voted Tiger 131 because I just got one and want to see what it is capable of in the right hands.

Few quick impressions of some of the tanks people have mentioned (vid will go into more detail, show what to do, and what not to do etc): 

 

Defender: really does play like an IS-7 (pre gun handling buff) at tier 8, just with a huge, and quite weak LFP. Does what it says on the tin, so to speak. 

 

Patriot: Joco summed this tank up in a party the other day: imagine a Pershing Jumbo. 

 

Somua: this is a tank that can't really be summed up quickly, so this isn't exactly accurate, but imagine a  Tiger 2, with an AMX 50 100 turret and clip and you're fairly close. Top tier, you can bounce some shells when angled. I've bounced Fatherland shells off the UFP. 

 

Yazi: A TD built to be aggressive. The gun can troll at times, especially at long range. It excels at being in the thick of things imho. Fairly decent armour, good mobility, very dangerous gun and good camo. SU-122-44 on steroids and suffering from roid rage. 

 

FV201: This tank has 2 modes. When firing AP, it is a second line support tank, tracking enemies and chipping away at their hp and just helping to re-inforce flanks. Load APCR, and it becomes a snap shotting buzz saw. Has very little in the way of armour so using ridges and keeping the amount of tank you have to expose to a minimum is important. 

 

That's all i have time for atm.

I have the same problem in the Patriot, and it's tough to pen a high tier with that little gun.

The Tiger II is my favorite tank, and I just got the Lowe, and also really like it. It plays like a slightly slower Tiger II, but the gun seems to pen a little easier. I think the camo rating is also higher, but I have perm camo on my Tiger II, so that might be a wash.

Looks like it might end up being the FV then. If i can, i'll do a vid showing a top tier game, and a bottom tier one so you guys can see how the tank handles both.

I'll do the Somua after that. Got a good replay ready where i do the most damage, and my team wins, but i also make some pretty bad mistakes and showing those can be good.

Vid is going up today, sorry for the delay guys, had killer toothache the past couple of days and couldn't concentrate, my attempts at commentary were not great. Seems to have eased off today though.

Oddly i'm really enjoying the tank, despite being against tier 8s and 9s alot of the time. Being bottom tier and a black tank means the reds are drawn to it like moths to a flame. Getting under a ridge, and permatracking tier 9s are they crest to yolo it is amusing. So far, got a Conq, T-54, T-30, 2 M46s, 3 Pershings, an M103, a Tiger and a T29 destroyed doing that (not all in the same game). Granted i didn't do all the damage as i focused on keeping them tracked but it still fun.

Wish they buff that gun though,  good to hear your having fun with it.  Still contemplating as there are more negatives than positives, but pricing is affordable for a novelty tank & a british crew trainer.

Me too tbf, if it had the 200 pen that the BP has then it would potentially be an ok silver earner as well as crew trainer. As it is atm, it's amazing for crews, but requires plenty of prem when bottom tier so it isn't a tank that someone looking to farm silver should buy.
