Hello!

 

Got a new review up. This time its the Sherman Grizzly 1 (the unskinned version of the Frostbite). Possibly one of the rarest shermans... and with good reason as you shall see ;)

 

 

Putting this togehter though did get me thinking- the game is crammed with premium shermans at t5 but which is the best?

 

Lets fix this one for good on the poll above!

 

Happy gaming!

Between the grizzly and the frostbite I have 165 battles, for some reason my WN8 is 3300 with the grizzly and 2950 with the frostbite:amazed:

 

you’d think they’d be about the same but no, I seem t get better MM with the regular grizzly

The grizzlies are not easy tanks to use, non of the tier 5 shermans are easy to use.  I think the strongest of the lot is probably the improved, but none of them are really good tanks.  The TT five is much better than ALL of them and that’s not saying much but they do get PMM for a reason.  The tier 6 sherman is much much better tier for tier than the 5s

They actually buffed the Champion M4 in 4.11 and gave it good terrain resistances. Only took them a year to make it drive like a Medium :trollface:

Block Quote

 

Champion M4 Sherman

  • Terrain resistance: 1 1.5 2.3 → .9 1 1.9
  • Accuracy during movement/rotation: .26/.26 → .24/.24

The M4 Improved. Better speed, better armor. It was originally added to the game with standard MM so it was expected to fight tier VIIs but now it has PMM and wasn’t changed. 

When the nice guy loses his patience the devil shivers.

Interesting, I haven’t driven mine a whole lot, it’s not a PMM tank, is it?

I took it out for a spin about a week before the buff and thought "why is this so sluggish?" and remembered why I hardly used it.

The mention in the patch notes stuck out to me as it was so unexpected. I may take it out again this year to see if it has actually improved, no promises though ;)

Edit: It is a PMM tank. Suppose I could make a vid with it in the next few days.

I’m not saying I won’t continue to play my shermans but I’ve been playing so much tier ten I hardly even play my 8s anymore:amazed:

At least it‘s the best looking Sherman. Somehow it was a lucky charm for me.

Better looking than the M51?

 

the IDFs M51 is hands down the meanest and coolest looking sherman ever.  Second for me would be the M4A3E8 thunderbolt.  Truth is I love them all so I don’t think any of them are ugly even the the FL-10 is a bit odd looking

I was talking about the quality of the ingame 3D Model and HD skin, unrivaled imho. In real life the Supersherman has the nod.

Yeah I'd agree. Oddly enough though, the poll suggests otherwise :)

I might say that, but the RAM II is the best Tier V Sherman.

And here’s the kicker, it’s a console exclusive creation.  The people in chicago made it from the ground up and it’s absolutely gorgeous and almost 100% accurate too.  I wonder why the cut and paste from PC format has continued especially when the console art department proved they could make such a beautiful model.

I forgot that.  It looks so Sherman-y.  

 

(It's also better than the Tier 5 Shermans.)
