If the grizzly thing is about to have a buff, then goes the Champion M4 and all the stupid limited MM Shermans as well.

None of the PMM Shermans are very good thanks to those derpy guns.  The Grizzly I is one of the few tanks I don't own.  I've been waiting to see it come on sale again just to complete the collection.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

Grizzly is fine, it has PMM so it has to have poor/mediocre gun. It's not a awesome tank but not garbage either.

They're all very meh, but unlike the T14 with the same gun, they lack anything close to frontal armour other than at max gun depression. Makes for inconsistent use as a sniper due to poor gun stats, and almost no utility as a heavium.

The Ram II / T14 has them all ends up in almost every situation you can imagine, and from the British line the Excelsior outstrips it, while the Matilda BP's gun has such superior gun stats I would take it in most situations.

I would have liked to see the Grizzly equipped with the 6pdr, like the Sherman III*** and IIIA* from the British line.

They don't have to change anything but the aim it is so bad I have a better chance of hitting the tank with the 105 on my M4 than the Grizz with the 75:facepalm:

Exactly.  Just change the accuracy so they aren't so derpy.  DPM and Pen are fine for a PMM tank.

Don't throw a rock at it, throw the whole tank in the garbage.  My naked Ripper and Champion M4 just collect dust.   Even with PMM, they get crushed. Good luck if an Absolution rolls up.

That was three days ago.  It is still sitting at zero games played.  

If I get really board, I will play one game in it, just so to make sure the system knows I own it. 

I will say...it looks cool.

either the Champion, or the M4 Imporved should have gotten the top gun. the fact that we dont have a decent M4 Sherman premium is fn lame WarGaming.

Trouble is, if you buff the gun on the Grizzly/Frostbite, you'll have to buff the same gun on the Ripper/M4A4E4, T14, M4 Champion, M4 Improved, M3 Lee, M4 and Sherman III.

 

Not that I'm arguing against such a buff though...

All Premium Sherman tier V need a gun buff. The US and UK versions should have the 105 howitzer. The Russian M4 should have the 76mm.

I love the Grizz but the poor accuracy is poopoo. You don‘t hit a barn or you bounce.

Hello,

 

This tank is very weak but playable IF you have a very good crew OR spam pramo (and probably if you use food). Now with 20 perk crew and octane + prammo I could playing it quite well.

 

The problem is that your gun is unreliable AND your penatration is really bad. So you could only fight very near...but if you have good mobility (not excellent) you have no armour against V. So it is a tricky tank.

 

It is frustrating since it is the same kind of gun performance than tiers IV M3 Lee and  M4 stock...but you could not go further to a better gun like "normal M4" . This tank is like a swamp.

 

With prammo it is easier (you could deal even with poor accuracy) and with very good crew the "in field accuracy" increase. but you have to know when change munition to prammo (often!). So you does not earn a lot of money.

 

A really good crew give you more accuracy (move...), greater view (already good), better camo, and a little strength to you armor (fire, ammorack...) and it is ok (not against best of V and most of VI).  So it is not a good crew trainer before 8/10 perks

 

The same gun has slightly better stat in "improved M4", I would like a buff in this way (but if the buff is the 76mm or derp gun : Hurrah!)

 

Don't pay for that*!

 

 

* You don't want to give money for quite the same tank than regular free M4, less performance, less fun and no more money earning.
