My team waged a direct frontal attack on the reds just like I knew they would, so I did what a good medium tank driver should do!! I Flanked!

#3 a good medium tank player doesn't need a crutch. Stop playn on easy mode and man up.

The Thunderbolt isn't really 'op'. Its basically like a Sherman Jumbo with slightly better mobility but a slower firing gun than the Easy Eight (but more accurate).

Well I guess it beats sniping in a top tier heavy. Not sure why you have to post a video every time you have a good game though. If the super uni's did that there would be 1000's of threads.

 

Be a smarty, don't play arty. If your game is a clunker, visit The Bunker.

Thunderbolt isn’t op at all....it’s suffering from new tank syndrome wherein people don’t totally know where to shoot them yet. Unlike the abomination where people DO know where to shoot it but it’s still questionable whether it will pen or bounce.

yeah you right!! I hate the absolution !! I have one and I hate that one also. every time I see it in my garage, I want to take it in match and drive off a cliff. I can't understand why they made this tank so damn OP!! it must be a favorite creation of somebody at WG!! don't get me wrong, I have killed my share of them, but I had to fight very hard to do it.

Ran up against one. Bounced his front plate and Mantlet (duh on that one) then I remembered a video talking about shooting right below the mantlet. Easy pens from then on in.

Right below the Mantlet??  well I ain't doubting what you said by no means, but that don't work for me, especially if their squirming  around. i'll just track'um then flank'em firing shoots in the side and rear. the turret traverse is awful and they can't keep up with you circling them. if i'm in the absolution and a tank is doing that to me, I know I have no chance, so I just go fix me another drink, and when I get back i'm dead!!
