Got the tank sitting in my garage for quite a while now.

I've only played a hand full of tier 9 tanks till till today, but this one is definitly the worst. Even german german super heavys are not as sluggish as this rubbish. The gun is meh. The reload is meh. The armor is meh. 

The tier 8 Emil was ok. Not the best tier 8 I ever had but it was playable. 

Please tell tell me the Kranvagn is any better because I'm loosing my mind. Should have grinded the T57 Heavy.

 

Please WG. Buff this tank line. Maybe like PC, maybe your own way (ok don't do it console style :harp:). But please do something.

And please don't ruin the hopefully upcoming swedish medium line.

 

Am I wrong?

...The gun is meh This is how you are paying for its heavy turret armor

 The reload is meh. - again this is how they've decided to make you pay for its armor

The armor is meh. You're using it wrong then.... this tank is meant to hide its lower body and shoot from the cover of a rock or hill

 

 

 

Please tell tell me the Kranvagn is any better because I'm loosing my mind. Should have grinded the T57 Heavy.

Kranvagen is the same yes but it's speedy.  It has the same gun as the T57 but reduced penetration and intraclip

I never found it too sluggish to manage. The turret is really what the tank is about. Hull down dump your clip and retreat

Make sure they have nothing of your hull, sometimes the pike nose will still stick out and it will get shot. I am hoping for the Kranvagn rework though, 3 rounds per magazine and 440 damage but it cuts the reload by ten seconds or so. Emil II gets the same deal, which changes up their role and lets them play in a different kind of niche than the other auto loaders. 

If I only had a Baneblade....

Yea that happens quite often. Even when using full gun depression my pike sticks out.

Yea maybe we'll get a balance update in about two years?

At this rate you're probably right. :D

I have to think that is the major problem with these tanks.  like the t57 people think it is a heavy so i can play it like other heavies and it really doesn't have the armor to slug it out with anything.  if you can use the gun depression and the turrent armor it is great but I find it to be played like a medium heavy with a bit more armor.  it is still an autoloader and needs to be opportunistic to be really effective and if you aren't getting much help from your other real armored heavies you are going to have troubles in these tanks.  I did pretty good in the 8 and 9 but I am having problems with the 10 because i seem to be getting stuck with other top tier heavy players that have no idea what they are doing and i end up having to slug it out with is 7s and 705As and 279es and this thing just can't do that with the lousy pen on the gun and having heat instead of AP.  I think that is another problem.  I think these tanks would be much much better if they were running AP shells instead of HEAT as premiums.  Then you might actually be able to do something to the russian tanks.

Pretend the diamond only has two stripes, not three.  Then remember it needs to support at all times.

Try it like that and see if that helps.
