This tank is the real idiot magnet.
32% win ratio after 25 games.
Oh God almost every team (not the opposite ofc ) is fail when i play with this tank.
I thought the grind with the M3 lee was true painful.
That was a mistake.
Cant wait to sell this tank...

I've noticed the stock gun is the bes. Just a warning to people hoping the tank will get better with unlocks, it doesn't.

copypaste from another thread...

I had my vic % as low as 12% or something...now it has tripled.  Matches // killed ratio is close to 1.5 though..



Have to say, A13 Covenanter is the worst piece of shit I have played in WoT.
Utterly, totally,abysmal. I rather ride with a stock M3Lee.

Ok, in the beginning had about 15 losses in row with it, so that puts a dampper. But the whole concept is flawed...
1. - They are slowish & mediocre manoverability, so cant be used as active scouts.
2. - absolutely useless armour. doesnt bounce, is thin and full of weakspots.
3. - guns would be a joke on tier 3, let alone when you are facing Kv-1s... Cant pen shyte and feel a LOT more inaccurate than
the stated.
4. - the 75mm derp gun has a flight time of about 3 seconds for 300m range..its like a mortar...useless.
Worst thing with the tank is that I got 2 teamkills in back to back games...never done that, ever.
The damn derp gun´s so inaccurate & flight time is soooo long that it is a liability to the team...
5.- the camo values...wat??  its like the tank is a heavy or something, feels that you get spotted all the time.
Honestly,thinking that I am going to stop the grind there.
Today was horrible, the tank sucks the joy out of playing.
No point to continue as the rest of the cruisers seem really,really,really meh...

So, for me it is walking to the store and purchase the VK3601 for the weekend to grind...

Stock gun is the best allrounder, but the QF 40 will do fine in city maps.

Light tanks is not my playstyle.  But i need to grind to the T6 where the medium line starts.

Load it with gold ammo and use the 40mm Mk. VI its just about bearable...





12k to go.......

It's fun and the best tank possible when it is top tier but that's only because 64mm of pen can just about pen the other tier fours, as soon as you get tier 5s or 6 it's becomes useless,
too slow to active scout
crap view range so can't scout that way.
gun can't damage anything, at best you can make a shield for one of you heavy tanks

It doesn't feel THAT bad.
I mean, it has a decent selection of guns, it's fast enough to flank, has the gun depression to make good use of hills....
Granted it's only been one day, so the matchmaking is favorable. We'll have to see how it performs when it's up against bigger, badder tanks. My guess is not great, but still better than other tier4s such as the AMX 40, pz3 and M3 Lee.

It aint no true.

This was my first time playing with the Covenanter. Not quite sure how I got ace tanker in one game though.

Loved the tier 3 A13 and the pom pom is ridiculously broken for that level. This tank.. not so much. I'm really hoping the derp gun will make the rest of the grind bearable, but it's certainly not a buyback tank. On to the Centurion!

Personally I felt the tier 3 A13 was crap. Gun too inaccurate to do anything with no armour at all so your dead in two or three its, terrible.

wat?

The 13 series and the Crusader (T5) are light tanks. From the Cromwell (T6), Comet and Centurions are mediums.

this tank has insane gundepression, you can hide almost your entire tank. It's a great tank to drive in 2's or 3's in a platoon, you can blast everything with 2 volleys of all 3 members. Challenge is tier 6 tanks, they are impossible, but some goldammo helps a lot there.

You shouldn't compare it to the M3Lee. The US equivalent is the M5 Stuart, which is brilliant tank.

Heh that's what I'm saying, Covenantor is pretty much the same tank with the same gun, worse speed and armour and a tier higher. Combination works in tier 3, not in tier 4.

Different strokes for different folks :) I play a lot of meds so my default setting is hidey-flank, works really well with the T3 A13 + pom pom.

Edited to say: Pedro I just started watching Kelly's Heroes, that where your avatar is from?

And Lee was most crap tank ever. Till now.
