I met a hardcase in a tier 10 game, driving my IS7. Im heading down a road in a city with 2 other tier 10 heavies, an E5 and can't remember the third sadly.

Comming at us is this very brave Hardcase, and i think, "poor guy, he went too deep".

But oh no, this guy quickly turns his tank sideways to a 90 degree angle. And this guy managed to bounce 7 shots from us, before a JPz 100 nukes him.

3 tier 10 heavies were bouncing all but 1 shot on him.

I get that the Mercenary tanks are supposed to be special, but isn't that a tad too much? It can basically be played like a tier 9 absolution.

One thing is for certain, he must have been laughing his [edited]of. I know i would.

 

Oh and a side note, seems the hitbox of the buttplate on it, is bigger than the actual visible plate. One of my shells were absorbed by something invisible when i tried to use him as cover.

When fighting a Hardcase use AP or APCR. Aim for first or last wheel, LFP, UFP, back or the small strip between hull and turret on the sides. And it's slow, so use speed as an advantage.

Yeah my friend and I call that [edited]scraping. If you don't know where to shoot you're going to have a bad time with it. There is a strip of armor just above the spaced armor on the sides that you can go right through if you hit it. Otherwise do what xXxDinoxXx said.

I was using standard AP. I didn't think apcr would be necessary on the side of a tank. But i should remember what year it is :teethhappy:

APCR won't go through either. You have to aim for weak spots. At least now you know. :)

He was in an IS-7. Had he been driving an E4, there would be no need to start this thread in the first place.

IS7 can pen the side of a Hardcase.

I unloaded 4 APCR rounds 10.5cm from a T54E1 and they all bounced. I was on a slight hill, shoot at the flat (FLAT, no angle) side of the Hardcase. All bounced and the reds won. Why, an OP armoured tank. I was PISSED!

Let me venture a guess: you shot HEAT and hit the tracks? Or was it literally a bounce? Because that would only occur at auto-bounce angles. So the would be my second guess: you hit it at an extreme angle.

 

As for the OP: I’m going for my own Hardcase these days, as I was in your position once. Let’s hope there’s enough people like us left when I’m done grinding...

It’s really not that great of a tank, pretty easy to kill, I’m doing the contract but doubt I’ll ever even play it, still haven’t even used my sharpshooter haha

It just exists to give the worst players a shot at surviving into the mid/late game. It's actually kind of insulting that WG instead of just telling these potatoes to get good gave them a tool to make up for their skill. The tank is bad but for really bad players it's still more than they deserve.

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

That’s a great example of irony. Not on purpose but what I call a tool that says that about most tanks but in the meantime you’re grinding the crap out of it all while you pat yourself on the back about it being pretty easy to kill. Lol. I’ll admit that the original poster should have been able to handle it in that situation but anyone that says they are easy to handle knows very little about it and it’s ability to block any shot from any tank that is in the game if angled correctly. Why would you be grinding that contract if it’s not a good one? I for one have the valour to grind and would go chisel on contract since you billy bad a**es are the cream of the crop. Hardcase is a beast to deal with. Reload and gun stats are great for a heavy. Low alpha but it is a t9. Learn to side scrape  with it and don’t rush is-7’s unless they are one shots, and then stil don’t rush it if they have backup. You won’t win that unless you Luck  into a few noobs who don’t have experience. All and all the truth is it is a great t9 and it’s haters speak for its hard to deal with armor when they moan and cry about it being for sorry players to play with so their mistakes are forgiven. Then another guy Says “it’s easy to kill, but I wanna waste my time grinding out all the xp to get it because I love myself and I gotta tell everyone I’m great, but I talk out of both ends by saying that I want the tank”. That’s what I translated this nonsense and salt loving bad boys opinion on the tank. They obviously have been used for target practice and pushed around like the little potato’s they portray

Looks like someone forgot to take their Prozac today.  Relax bud all I said it was easy to kill if you know where to shoot it, I didn’t claim to be a badass, nor did I say it was a bad tank. I don’t want a chisel because I already have an m48 and the chisel isn’t as good after nerf.  I’m grinding the hardcase because it’s a reason to play the game, I’m also grinding the valour as well since that just started last week and I’ve been grinding hardcase for a month.  Take a few deep breaths and maybe kick your dog a few times, you’ll probably feel better

Met one today and based on what I’ve learned on here killed him by aiming at the back drive wheel

Aiming for weak spots. What a bunch of chumps. Just wait and call arty to nuke one problem solved and you get to keep your shells for other targets
