I hate the Crocwell/Vomit too OP. Have a Snakebite I got dirt cheap & hate it, like the Snakebite crew skill though. Maybe Crommie variants hate me too though but all those flat armor plates never fail to get penned even at top speed...no thanks!:sceptic:

How can you not like the Cromwell... I don't know how you play yours, but for me it's one of the best tier 6 I've ever played. It's fast & mobile (don't know where you get your slownest from), and the gun is great. A real dpm monster. Perhaps that line just isn't for you..

Cromwell has to be the worst tier 6 Ive ever played. Has horrible traverse speed, garbage pen, garbage accuracy and its waay to big and always gets hit by arty. It horrible. Ive played most tier 6 in the game and this has to be the worst in my opinion. Buff this trash. 

 

The cromwell to his own style of games.

 

Avoid locating with him, he is not a light and he is blind, when you will detect a first red ... the whole red team will already be shooting at you for a while. This is not a good Peek a Boo tank, forget the corners of the wall and the rocks. To start with it you have to stay slightly behind the first line (light or heavy front team) and when they engage an opponent you intervene as a traitor taking advantage of your speed, if traffic jams have formed and you see ON THE MINI-MAP (no compass with him) that the majority of heavy / medium are involved, escape to the red territory and circle TD and arty. It is a very good scavenger at the end of the party.

 

Play cunning with the cromwell, it's made for that.

I use Google translator for english language

Lots of juggling in french text, sometimes translator in trouble with that. If you do not understand what I write, tell me.

I have a slightly different opinion to Sightless, but then I have binoculars on almost every tank I own.

1. Spot with it. More importantly, move to a bold location that you can retreat from. If you stay behind other players you might get some shots in, but really you are missing out on the tanks great strengths to do so. The mobility and relative concealment makes it a reasonable passive spotter, particularly if you put binoculars on it. If you are being shot at then you are using your view range incorrectly and yolo'ing. Getting early spots due to your mobility will open up the enemy by either making them freeze when you make them go ping, or let your allies shoot in which case you earn spotting assist.

2. Accuracy is surprisingly good, and own is more than adequate. Don't just try circle of death everything you meet. You can pepper tanks from a distance quote easily in the tank, but you have to aim a bit high as the shots do drop over distance. Aim for ammo racks to weaken heavies like the Tiger, or track tanks like the Tiger P, IS, or T29's to flank and circle - but with your rate of fire you can be just as dangerous to them from 400m.

3. Mobility will get you into and out of trouble, don't be afraid of pushing higher tier tanks to get behind them, but always try and do so when they are distracted. This will buy you vital time to get tight to them where you can out circle their traverse.

When top tier be confident you are probably the most flexible tank on the field, able to fill a number of roles. As you fall down the tiers you start to become more specialised as a flanker, and late game clean up crew.

The Cromwell has flat, thin armor.  The Cromwell can't hit ANYTHING while on the move....unless they are straight ahead and neither of you are turning, don't even try it.   Don't try to "trade" shots....you don't have the armor and you will die. 

 

Outside of that...it is an AMAZING tank. 

 

I play it like a big scout/flanking medium.  Lots of hit and run tactics.   Speed is life.   Use your big map to keep an eye on enemy scouts and arty.  It is an awesome feeling running down an enemy scout trying to kill your arty.   Late game clean-up is fun time. 

 

I run Optics, vents, and rammer, along with camo paint.
