 Does anyone own both the Beach Party and Trinity? I have the trinity and enjoy it but it’s just so slow.

Is the speed difference enough to grab the Beach Party?

It's only 1 HP/T difference, so probably not.

 


I spent half my money on gambling, alcohol, and cheap women. The other half I wasted -  W.C. Fields

Beach Party Lol. Still can't imagine whoever thought Beach party was a great name for a tank.

It's a better name than Banana Buster

I've definitely had better games with the beach party than the trinity but I don't play them very often so I am by far no expert with them...LOL

You don't see either tank very often.  So it causes me to think Wargaming didn't make much money from them.

there is a thread about the Beach Party in the Mercenary tank discussion page.

I have it but it tends to draw a lot of attention when played.

I love my beach party. If I wasn't taking a hiatus from the game for a bit I'd be using it fairly regularly same for the other two in that set

I don’t play them often but I think the better agility of Beach Party is more valuable and noticeable than the additional armor of Trinity II. 
Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

I only have the trinity and enjoy everything about the tank apart from the massive hole in the armour at the front.....the gun mantlet is so rubbish. Have not seen the point of 11 degrees of gun depression when (in my experience) everything that hits the mantlet penetrates.

 

If you do well in the trinity then there's no reason why you wont do as well in the beach party as they are basically the same tank....albeit, with worse hull and side turret armour and a milt speed increase. Check on the info if the ground resistances are the same as they might be a better.

I saw alot when they were new. People bought in on the hype then realized they were actually as bad in game as they look. Lots of them sitting in scrap heaps and dusty corners of garages.

Beach party is pretty damn good though. The gun is fantastic.

According to wot info it's considerably less than impressive. Almost 1/20th the games of the IS-3 and basically the same stats, not exactly in line with what should be representing a "good" vehicle.

that doesn't prove it's a bad tank and you're comparing it to one of the oldest most used tanks in the game that's hardly a fair comparison especially since stat wise it's a good tank. It performs exactly how it should for a medium. Complain about it's looks all day but it's good tank. Not bad. Not amazing or terrible. Just good.

last 30 days.

 

The IS-3 is frequented by some of the lowest level pond scum around. There's a reason the IS-3 has middle stats, because it's incredibly easy to play and attracts potatoes. I have no reason to believe the beach party has a high skill gap like the IS-3. Additionally the Trinity is listed higher in several categories. At best it's an average tank, at best. At worst it's an ugly stinker that only sits in the middle of tier 8 because it has such sparse stats representing it's effectiveness.

i use both every day & if your only going to buy one, untill they give the Beach Party the mobility buffs it needs you will want the Trinity.
