good choice lol how much pen does that thing have on it's premium round??? I've never driven the S tank

330 on its prem, even has 288 on its standard, really good for a tier 8.

I'm not sure that image is accurate, just as an FYI. 268 Pen will go through the front, not reliably but certainly not a  0% chance. :honoring:

 

 

 

I know its a long shot, but is there any way you can tell us if there will be any changes to the tank before it is released on console? I know a lot of tanks are changed a bit from the PC version.

Edited as for somereason it missed my whole question off...:trollface:

 

Surely the front underside of the 279e will be vunrable to larger caliber HE? Here is my reasoning for asking:

 

If you are driving around in a E100, Jageroo, T110E3 or T95...something like that, a fully loaded HE loadout is good fun as aiming between the tracks to hit the floor under the tank is almost a guaranteed 6-800 damage due to the explosion happening and the game looking for the closest weak armour to "pen". No in the case of the Obj279e, there are four tracks but the tank can't literally sit on the tracks and there doesnt seemt o be any "skirt" to stop HE damage.

 

So my thoughts: would shooting HE at the top of the tracks but below the beak allow the HE to search for the underside of the hull in its damage calculation? 

 

Apologies if this has been covered before...

Cheers

changes are on this: http://forum-console.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/239466-season-game-op-rewards-chart-object-279e-tank-and-more/#topmost

but we do not know the armor layout yet.

True!  However, given the accessibility of this op, I suspect there will be loads of folk who’s first tier X will be this thing, making things even worse from a team / gameplay perspective!

I wasn't able to earn it as work had e away from the game enough with underway to keep me from finishing most of the OPs. I'll have fun dealing with this thing though.

Wasn’t just aimed at TDs but heavies etc too. You wouldn’t get an E100 round or a T110e5 or M103. However instead of going straight to “oh sheet! It’s an object279e...load the gold!!!”, I was asking if it were an option.

Early January is going to be a great time to play a tier X TD - so many hit points available in  OBJ279e drivers rolling out who don’t know how to play tier X’s and think they are invincible in this thing!

 

... rude shock awaits.

 

 

 

I might have to buy back my E4 to outplay them with my superior knowledge of weak spots and angling. Also known as pressing A.

If you ever actually paid attention you would notice they nerfed the 279 but not the part that makes the tank OP.

 

You should consider thinking critically before you try to argue against people who win nearly every game they play in nearly every tank in the game.

 

Leave the stat analysis to people who actually know what they are talking about.

 

You can go away now.

The best option in any situation is load the gold. It's balanced. Because it's flat out better.


MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

It's pretty self evident. They specify that it has 185mm of hull armor... surprise surprise so does the PC version. 

 

It also specifies it has 330mm of turret armor surprise surprise. So does PC. 

 

It's pretty obvious the armor is going to be the same. Just with a nerfed gun.

The real solution: play tier 7.

Circon did a video using 100% HE in the Foch 155 recently. Tore an enemy 279 a new one with it :teethhappy:

 

I’ll be using that tank (for Tusk Contract) with that Sweet HEAT - with that 395 Pen. Yes, it is really 395!

It's almost like different tanks have different stats and need to be handled differently. Strange, really.

Imagine a company that’s in charge of developing a free to play game that hates free to play players so much that they think it’s a fantastic idea to literally give away to thousands of people something that directly makes free to play people irrelevant, but yet when it comes to “SupEr TeStERs” they kick out anyone that even remotely criticizes something they do. Yikes what a thought
