Tanker mode, no pity ... more Vengeance in my team ... no, why Vangeance!

 

I take my last game in the example because it looks like the other games I have played. The team's Vengeance: 9 shots, 6 shots on goal and 1 penetration (it's about average, let's say that he was not lucky and that he should have had 3).

In comparison, a Russian heavyweight of rank 8: 14 shots, 14 shots on goal, 14 penetration.

 

As long as you want to take a medium ... why not something more useful like the Centenial, King Dragon, T-32 proto ( really a heavy ?) ....

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.

T32-A proto is my favorite medium tank. :trollface:

My favourite tank to roll out in tanker mode is the AMX 50 100.  It’s got the clip potential (average 1,800 HP) to change the game early, and the speed to run away if chased by a commander “bum rush”.

 

If they have truly stopped the bots firing at I unspotted tankers, then it will be even better this time around.  

 

Agree with the OP - Vengeance is a poor choice for tanker mode.

 

What other tanks are people finding work consistently in tanker mode and why?

Vengeance is one of the tanks people can get randomly assigned by playing without picking their own tank from their garage.

Others may also be playing it for the XP bonus it has.

Surely at Tier VIII it's the 131 :trollface:

 

Personnally I like the McDragon or the M4 .49HMH (So bouncy you'd think it was a squash ball) for this mode. I have also been seen causing mayhem in the Turtle in previous seasons. Those Scorpions love a cheeky HE to the turret. :playing:

 

Going to try and get on tonight to get the KnackeredPanzer

Captured King Tiger works well. Low alpha but high DPM consistently puts me first or second on the damage results. Keep HE handy for Skorpion G and Iron Rain.

Been having fun with the vk 100, earthshakier, inferno, and the t92 (America light tank)

All play different, but it’s been fun with way more wins then loses.

Got my fv4202p. That is possibly as far as i can reach. Use tanks with good front or turret armor. Seems like the hardes tank to kill is ferdinand. If it sits in front of you - only way to kill it is rushing it or jumping into a skorpion and shooting weak spots... but then u lose the birds eye view.

I've been 0-5 as commander this time around, probably just bad luck. Last time I won most as commander.

One of my platoon mates has his best games using the Caernarvon.  I’ve been mostly using the defender.

It was in the WG release, now the bots no longer shoot invisible targets. I have had success in both modes but there are times when I lose more often in commander mode. It's more balanced than last month, the commanders had a clear advantage over the tankers.

I use Google translator for english language

Currently on 18 wins 0 losses as a commander. 

 

The bots don't shoot beyond render range anymore but they still nail some silly shots.

 

I prefer the commander vs commander battles to the commander vs tanker battles personally. You also get more XP and silver fighting other commanders than you do from tankers. 

 

I find it funny they changed the UI so the commander can't see platoons anymore.

I've been nuking scorpions with HE from my Turtle. Oh the memes!

 

However, the bots are still pulling some mad snap shots. Noticed they stay locked on you and spotted even if you run behind several layers of cover.
