Just got a Radley's for 9 kills and a Kolobanov on Pilsen vs a VK36.01, almost full health Absolution, full health Captured KV1, almost dead Chi Nu, Hummel and M37.

 

If they had worked as a team, I wouldn't have stood much of a chance but  I managed to despatch the Absolution while it was alone, out in the open and only the KV and Chi Nu came at me together, the VK was trying to survive and I didn't stay still long enough for the arty to get a lock.

 

I don't know why the Knight doesn't get more credit. I find it a lot better than the Cromwell B and by far the best T6 medium.

whats the differance between the B and The knight?   Obviously the paint,   but what else.

I don't play my Knight anymore because I made a vow to not play it unless in a 5 player purple/super purple and me platoon.  I got it's win rate up to 82% or so in 50 games.  But nearly all my unicum friends quit, so it's hard to get a full platoon of them together.  My experiment is to see how long you can maintain a stupid high win rate before the evil program tries to push you back to 50%. 

 

I play the B now and look back and remember what was in the Knight.

i find this hilarious. your a man who doesnt want to give out opinion regarding tank stats & needed changes based on said stated stats / in-game performance, yet your happy to solicit others for said info. why dont you just study the stats & then test them accordingly.

 

& youll have to test because the differences are only slight. they skew to 2 slightly different strengths.

Not long after buying the knight I got into a mid tier game and my team had a 5 man platoon of Cromwell and knights. I worked with them we swarmed and wrecked everyone,one of the guys sent me a video afterwards.

 

Definitely one my best wot memories. Tier 6 mediums are awesome

Easy. The gun on the Berlin can hit enemy tanks, the knights can't.

 It's really cheap for trade in too. Most of us have a few useless power creeped tier 8 prem mediums to trade in for it.

It depends on how you play your crommy. If you engage a B with your knight in a pursuit fight .... you have almost no chance of getting out alive. Whatever the maneuver you're going to do, all his shots will hit you.

 

 If you engage the fight in peek a boo mode, hiding between shots, there is the Berlin that is most likely not to escape alive ... you have the advantage over him in this mode of fight.

You can put a US flag on the knight and ruffle a ton of feathers.


“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

One has worse aim time but better accuracy, the other is the opposite.


Lights tanks need rebalanced(again)

​Update 4.2 and 4.6 were terrible

Exactly, because of that they have different roles and the choice of equipment will be very different too. For example the Cromwell B will really use the Christie reinforced suspension, the crew performance improvements (ventilation, food) and Simon Linnet's snakebite skill will be a must have to boost his auto-target in the pursuit fight. In a Knight ... I do not really know what it's all about.

The Knight is a cracking tank - one of the first Premiums I dropped cash for. 

 

I'd be up for a platoon ....

I was going to say that I'd traded them all already but then I remembered I still have the cdc. Might do it. I only have about 10 tier 6 mediums so obviously need more

The Cromwell's....

 

They should have been banned from the start.   I remember scouting with my poor Chaffee......when all of a sudden a pack of Cromwell's would come jumping over a hill, rape everything in seconds, and disappear around the corner. 

 

When I played my Cromwell, I would spend a lot of time just hanging out not too far from our own arty because I knew there would be that one red scout on a solo arty run.   Oh, there he is on the map.....time to eat....


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)

very little.

However they out shine the regular cromwell for one reason - you can put your badazz crews in them.

I really like all of the Cromwell-based tanks.

 

Way back when I was a noob, I played a couple thousand games at and around tier 6 - mostly because I enjoyed the tanks on which I was focused, but it also gave me variety and let me learn the finer details of the game.

 

I played a ton of games in the two US Shermans and the Cromwell (and the tier 5 T67, too).  I became a big fan of the speed of the Cromwell, and how it could adapt to the dynamics of the individual map (fast attack, can play the role of scout, etc). 

 

The Knight was the only similar premium for a long time, and I knocked out a few games in it.  Along came the Cromwell B and the Snakebite, all of which can be quite fun.

 

The Crom B and Snakebite are the two I play most often now when we are bouncing through tier 6 in our rotation.  Two different yet similar tanks.  Lots of fun.
