I like to think of myself as having a great eye for OVERPOWERED PREMIUMS. So I bought the Dreadnaught, lol, my eye is correct. The only reason I'm posting this is because a lot of people just don't get how OVERPOWERED it really is. Either that or they are crying about it not being a Ragnarok. This post is for those people. 

 

I'm not paid by WG to say anything or persuade you in any direction. I'm simply talking to you from one tanker to another, everything else aside, all cards out on the table. If you play WoTC daily, and you don't buy this tank, you're missing out on one of the most broken tanks tier for tier in the game. 

 

I attached some images, I hope they load for you guys. I want to point out beforehand that I consider myself average, and that was my 9th game in the tank. I want to also point out that the standard round has 175mm of penetration. It's enough. You can auto aim tier 5, 6, and most tier 7. This allows me to make anywhere from 80k to 120k credits a game, more than I make on most of my tier 8 premiums. 

 

I have a lot more to say about this tank, but I don't want to rant, I'm also in awe and kind of speechless. Like the HEAT rounds. Lol.

I want to clarify. The AP rounds will get you through most engagements. As middle, or bottom tier I still fire AP until something with armour shows up on the red team. At that point I switch to HE and start farming them. If it starts to get down to the wire and the match is on the line, I switch to HEAT. The reason I choose this play style is because at the end of the day it's a premium tank, made to make credits. It's entirely possible for you to load HEAT from the start of every match and melt everyone's face with 250mm of penetration. The tank also holds like 48 rounds. I just load 15 of each ammo type. So there's plenty of options for loadouts.

Yep, I was watching some friends on stream average 2800 damage per game in a tier 7. That is pretty nice

Of course it's OP. It's a freaking kv-2 with higher pen. 250mm with prem rounds? YES PLZ! I don't have the tank (yet) but after I saw it was a tier 7 with higher mobility an better stats than the tier 6 Kv-2, it'll be a insta buy when the base package comes out at the end of the month. I don't wanna toot my own horn here but I used to derp e75s in the side a lot back when tier 5s could face tier 9s on pc and it was glorious doing 400+ damage to them before HE was nerfed. I shoot mostly prem rounds in the tier 6 kv-2 for the lulz an this new prem kv-2 with higher pen and ability to make even more credits while facing tier 9s will be an absolute blast to play with.

 

250mm of pen with prem rounds on a tier 7 that has 700 alpha and its a prem tank...its perfect.

Funny how WGCB tend to nerf every premium tank that’s coming over from PC but if it’s some in-house tank, it’s OP.   I mean look at the absolution and minute man.   Seriously, 250 HEAT pen at tier 7 that averages 700 damage and has a turret to boot and better gun handling stats than the tier 6 ugh *insert facepalm gif here*.   It also actually has much better mobility to cope with the light/medium tank meta as well.

Only WGCB would fudge this up.   I wonder if this tank will see a nerf down the line.

And the ordinary SU-152 which has the same premium pen but ohhh no, it's better because it's a KV-2.

 

And mobility w.turret.

I would say it seems good enough to enter in my short list (together with Iron Rain and Rover 227 plus Progetto as the only Italian) for buying when it shows up in the store in some discounted bundle next time. But as I already have quite a few Premiums (165 in total and 34 Russian especially) I’m quite loaded and don’t have to hesitate on the first occurrence price. If I wanna feel it meanwhile I still can use Slayer. 
Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

I would rather have the balanced 40k themed one thanks. 

 

But we won't be getting that ever.

Soon as the lights go on in my arty more and more people say. Arty can you keep an eye open for the KV2 thing (other names apply) ? :bush:and when I have one of my sniper tanks up and running I make it a habit to either kill it or perma track it. As for Buying it hmm World of Warships calls.:honoring:

This tank may very well be OP, although, I have had only 1 time that it got the "non-existent" low health mercy roll and I died.  That said, I am not buying overpriced digital boxes.  That may cost me on the battlefield, but "if I die, I die"......with the cash still in my pocket.  My cash support comes in the form of premium time, and that is it.
I'm just saying.....

The pattern of nerfing normal tanks and introducing made up OP tanks nobody asked for is a pattern that may never end.

As my good friend Ares says, "it ain't the shoes". Meaning it matters more who is driving the tank, rather than what tank they are in. A really bad player can tank a great tank and make it useless. For the average Joe tanker though, with basic map knowledge and situational awareness, this tank is a serious threat in their hands. It basically drives itself. The only user input needed is where to be, and hiding during reloads.

At least you see the dreadnought coming, the first time you know a slayer is looking at you is when you lose 700+ HP.

Dreadnaught is the only tier VII tank that scares the living daylights out of me when I'm in a tier IX vehicle. Well done, WG.

The game became interesting again. :P
