the tank is a neat concept but it needs a huge buff! so i think one or several of these could help the tank greatly.

 

  •  Faster Rate of​ Fire - the current gun has awful damage and poor rate of fire for a heavy tank. (7.23 rpm and 250/250/330 damage) a rate of fire buff could greatly improve this tank's effectiveness.
  •  More Pen - this tank has AWFUL pen for a heavy tank. (190/247/50 pen) most heavy tanks that are not PMM have around 220mms of pen. this and the awful accuracy and aim time makes it hard to use and you have to premium spam against some tanks in order to have a chance to pen them. (Accuracy 0.38, Aim Time 2.90s.)
  •  a gun replacement - (I.E: 0QF 32-pdr Gun Mk. II from Caernarvon Tiger II's short 105mm or maybe long. Panther II's 88mm L/100. T32's 105mm. KV-4's 107mm. 110's 100mm. pretty much any gun that is meant for a Heavy tank or is decent enough for a Heavy Tank.)

 Reasoning: this is a heavy tank and i thought either a faster firing gun with good pen or a gun that hits decently hard would be waaay better than the current gun which is bad in pretty much every way for a heavy tank. a 122mm sounded a bit over kill due to the armor, but it could still be a good fit. 

  •  PMM - this would help the tank a lot! the tank atm has 0 reason seeing tier 10 with the awful gun and Mobility.

 

in my opinion, these are what could help this tank or even fix this tank.

 

 

i bought the bundle since it was a great deal and i wanted the boulder and more Mercenary Premiums.

the boulder is great. ( i like Churchill tanks, i do not mind the Mobility).

but this post is about the brick and what could make it great in my opinion.

 

i will try the Brick some more with my 8 skill mercenary crew.

Or they could just admit it was a mistake and erase it while refunding all buyers. Just a thought..

I would accept any of the mentioned buffs but maybe RoF&DpM buff would be the best in my view.

I’ve got it as a part of that 75% off Merc. mega bundle some time ago. Actually I wanted Turtle and Trinity Mk. II. So I’ve actually received all the rest Merc. Premiums for free in some way. Thus - no regrets. And they all (incl. the Brick itself) are pretty handy with the contracts. But it would be good if the poor Brick receives some love.

It plays like a completely stock tier 8 heavy.
In my opinion:

The bricks over the mantlet need to count as spaced armor, have no idea why they do not.

The engine needs to be replaced with a more powerful one, leave the awful track traverse the same but at least make it move.

Gun doesn't need to be replaced it just needs a huge handling buff. 190 standard pen is workable, especially with it's decent apcr pen, but not with 2.9 aim time and .38 accuracy.

Give it 20 meters more view range.

i looked up the gun mantlet armor on http://wotinspector.com/en/webapp?targetVehicleId=11937,5794,6307,19108&mode=xray.armor&platform=console and it looks like the gun mantlet is layered, it is insanely thick

mobility is actually great if you use all mobility skills, Food and premium gasoline though.

Well it is the worst tier 8 in game ATM. According to Wotinfo. If it got the Pmm,  It would be a middle of the pack tier 8. Everyone could accept that.

Some people claim Ensk should be tier restricted.   I don't believe their lies. 

Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of bad advice from players who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.
