I have met two of these newly released premium tanks, Tier VII: Dreadnought.

 

Both times in my Tier VI (it is not a typo, the AMX Chaffee is a Tier VI, renamed Tier VII, but you can put a cow in a stable, it will not become a horse).

 

On each battle, I was one shot. While I accept my fate when playing against Tier VIII, IX, I am seriously questioning the ability of a Tier VII to one shot 8 out of 15 of us....

I wonder how the Dreadnought driver would’ve felt if you’d got him alone in a corner and circled him to death to where he was helpless to return fire.  If I was the Dreadnought driver in that scenario I’d be wondering if autoloading light tanks weren’t overpowered.

Don’t forget..... the Tier VI KV-2 is just as capable of crushing your hopes and dreams and one-shotting half the enemy team. :-P

The Dreadnought is a great tank. But it's easily defeated if he doesn't catch you off guard. Good job to that player.

Don’t question that about the Dreadnought. Question instead how if cna go toe to toe with tanks two tiers higher and come out laughing at them. :teethhappy:

Dreadnought deserve respect when approaches. Still, I think it's fun to hunt then down. The gun is the one that makes that tank dangerous so I just aim at the turret to kill it's loader or destroy its ammo rack and it's useless tank.

Not that easily if the load consists fully on cHEAT rounds.

It is a bit on the OP side, but so is its Tier 6 counterpart.  They're both like mid-tier Death Stars.  This is why I make them a priority for focus firing whenever they pop up in-game.  I'm more wary about getting hit by one of those in my Tiger than I am from a T29 or T34.  If it's too late to move into cover, I've found the best way to deal with them is to close the distance as fast as you can, since they have a fairly long reload.  Both of their turrets move so slow that once you're close enough, you can just keep circling ahead of their gun while you reload.  If they tag you, though, you're pretty much boned.

Agreed. It can make a mockery of tier 9 tanks. Quite funny but I wouldn't want to be the tier 9 driver.

I was that Tier IX driver last night. :(

 

My poor T-10 (which MM apparently hates) got caught by a long range HEAT threaded through the rocks whilst top tier on El Alamein. Took the turret straight off. An unbelievably lucky shot. The language nearly melted the TV.

I haven't been on the wrong end of one yet, I have seen them smash a few team mates though, it doesn't look fun at all lol. It's kind of crazy when you think about it, WG have been nerfing the hell out of most of the premiums they've been bringing over from PC only to have this abomination and the Absolution released as console exclusives in the same year  :rolleyes:

I just played a few battles this morning, and I did not encounter any. But I will stay away when I see one next time!

 

I got caught twice with a Lycan and it felt like being between Charybdis and Scylla.... (for those that have studied Greek mythology)

It could easily be just one of those games that he did everything right and your team did everything wrong too. I've seen more Dreadnoughts that were at the bottom of the leader board at top tier than on top of it. They're not impossible to pen, but still it seems that no one will make the attempt to face them out of sheer fear, just like the Deathstar, and it gives them more power over the game than they actually have. The only thing I'd say that should happen to it is the actual speed of the tank should be reduced, and the turret should be like a Hellcat or T-67, and not able to turn while driving. The real KV2 couldn't turn it's turret unless it was on level ground.

Block Quote

 The road speed of a KV-2 was no more than 25 km/h (15.5 mph) and it only reached a mere 12 km/h (7.5 mph) off-road, making it a very slow moving vehicle. It was also prone to having trouble traversing the heavy turret if not on relatively flat ground. These problems all limited the flexibility of the KV-2 combat

 And yet the Dreadnaught out runs the T29 and Minuteman like they're standing still, even though the T29 should be able to hit 22mph (35km/h).

 

Yeah, yeah I know....

Real world tanks =/= WoT tanks

It is very true.... we had a one side team, and I got clipped as someone had parked right behind me, so the dreadnought had an easy kill...
