... Is terrible.  Maybe the worst in my collection.  What a non-joy to play, now.

I guess war-gaming really wants us to buy the new crap now.

 

Stinky-poo.

And good thing it is crap as if it had the gun from the normal cromwell it would be OP as balls. right now its kinda OP because of the mobility it gets. it doesn't need to g=be any better than it should be

Isn't the snakebite the fastest tank in the game?

The Snakebite is far from OP. It can be annoying to face and is fun to play because of its great speed and mobility, but you can easily argue that the Cromwell is a better tank simply because of its gun. That would be fine since the Cromwell and Snakebite are each better than the other in their own regards, except that the Snakebite is treated as a preferential MM tier VII instead of a tier VI. That combined with how much better the T-50-2 is makes the Snakebite largely irrevelent, even if it can be fun to race around in.

T-50-2 demands a second opinion.

And well, i think we had already seen that clip here (can't remember the name of the forumer that did it) with that stupid Rover 237 hitting 91 Km/h downhill in El Halluf, doing that sparkly thing that does beyond 88 Km/h as some kind of weird easter egg. Even Max said that he managed to hit the limit of speed on the game and that he was afraid that nothing can go faster than that.

Some might say i'm not constructive enough... Too bad i'm actually a deconstructivist

Being on topic, the Snakebite has speed, somehow handling, view range... and that's it. If your team expects you to do damage then the game is doomed, even in the late stadiums you can't rely on racking damage unless you find an absolutely distracted enemy letting you stop or else an AFKer to farm. Even in neck to neck ranges with APCR you can fail miserabily thanks to the ludicrous dispersion on the move it has. Absolutely thrashed away with the light tank rebalancing.

Said kinda OP because of the mobility. doesn't mean it's as OP as you might think i say. even with the T50-2. it really doesn't need a buff. and if it does. nerf the gun reload and buff the pen is fine.

Honestly I just feel that it should have standard MM. It wouldn't change the tank in most of its matches, but it would both give it the chance at not worrying about tier VII and VIII tanks and make it easier to platoon with.

Thought it already had up to tier 8 mm. not tier 9.

aaaagh, fecking editor!!!!

 

I'll try again:

on ps4 clan leaderboards combined damage spread for each of the crommies is:

 

Crommie B: 1830 - 2590

Snakebite: 1720 - 2200

Knight: 1600 - 2170

Crommie: 1380 - 2120

 

Obviously the snake leans more towards assisted than any of the others.

Great active scout and a menace end game.

But yeah, epically bad gun, especially on the move

It does only see up to tier VIII but it can't be top tier.

It's slower. Ru is 70 and the Snakebite is 80.

Good grief...

No wonder it was such a hassle to two make the Bromwell and Snakebite.    I should have stuck with the TT Cromwell....


3 MOE's: VK 30.01D (VI), T-34 (V), M-24 Chaffee (V)

2 MOE's: Indien-Panzer (VIII), T-20 (VII), Cromwell B (VI), Snakebite (VI), T-37 (VI), M4 Sherman w/Derp (V), VK 16.02 Leopard (V)

It isn't the reload or pen, it is the projectile hang time I find very bad.

Yes: CromB is a better Snakebite.
