In the 8.1 update, we introduced British vehicles into World of Tanks. Some of you may have already tried them out, whilst everyone else will certainly have met them on the battlefields. Now it is time to take a closer look at the British medium tanks tree!

some of "medium" are actually light ones.
Good thing MM treats them as mediums.
Some of them needs buff in gun department.
Some of them ( Cromwell) are quite nice and fun to play.

OQF 17-pdr Gun Mk. VII  gun he needs at least as top gun TBH...

also 6 pdr Gun Mk. V (L/50) on Crusader needs buff too, at least more pen if dmg is on pair with others ( and is not )

They play very well, although making the second pom-pom shoot 2x2 shots is a cringeworthy decision.It's accurate at longer range but due to the fire succession you almost ALWAYS miss the second shot of the series. This means you effectively only have 2 shots in a magazine rather than 4.

I personally think this pom-pom needs a 4 shots clip like the first one where you can decide yourself when to fire each of the 4 shots.

Other than that I'm liking them.

And one more thing, and maybe some important personage of War Gaming by some incredible coincidence seeing this message because I have one basic question camouflage patterns that are so little flattering that smacks the crap for what many people do not decide to camouflage.
In opinni simple player I saw more deeper colors to reflect the sun light reflecting on the "revised maps"
not so much that it differed in some way from reality, but I do not believe that this can not be fine-tune but important detail.
PS is using a disguise but looking at how the game starts I feel like a cartoon character as the sole holder of camouflage, even at high levels.
Sorry for my poor English

That's why I've taken to using the stock 2-pdr on the covenanter. a bit more pen, more accurate, and you don't waste every second shot.

instead of saying M   K  say Mark because it sounds wierd


and also about the comet all they said was

"this tank sucks, just camp"

you could always buff it?

I have to admit that the lower level tanks I had an issue with, the Crusader takes some getting used to but I use it like I used the AMX 12t after is was moved to tier 6. Not as a scout (due to the horrible turning speed) but a flanking support tank, some scouting and near the end of the game arty rush.

The Cromwell is great, I think it's balanced as it is now. It's gun is okay, you need those equipment and crew skills but in a platoon it's a great pack tank and I've managed to make 5 Brothers in Arms badges with it in one afternoon of platooning with another Cromwell!

The Comet everyone gates against, I personally don't have a problem with it. Even with the same gun as the Cromwell I did well with it and so far it's great support and flanking tank.

Thats as far as I got with it, I look forward to the Centurion!

PS: Matilda I need to work on as Im having difficulty getting any good games with that one myself.

Centurion is well armored ? You can throw rocks at this tank and every second rock will kill a crew-member and damage the ammorack !

Thanks for this review it is pretty spot on.

Quote:

"Now you have been introduced to the British line of medium tanks. They aren't revolutionary; they are not going to show you something that is going to change world of tanks."

"You won't see some invincible armour or some monstrous damage per shot there."

"But you can still find some very interesting vehicles that will excite the curiosity of players regardless of their style."

Shame the HESH ammo was nerfed on the T10 medium I feel if the HESH ammo was as it was in test 1 these tanks would have a speciality.

Great video with sound advice ! Not sure I agree with the well armoured comment, but suggestions as how to use these tanks are spot on and very welcome. (The cent is oversized, according to RL dimensions it shouldn't be much bigger than Patton/t54.)

i laughed when they said the centurion was well armoured lol and the lets not talk about the comet. moving on lol

It's clear they had no vision on what they wanted the brits to achieve in game and they all out say it at the end of this battle.  This should not be the case each nation has it's distinct advantages and yet as they stated this has none, at least noe that continue throughout the tree and make it attractive to the non commonwealth players of wot.

Problem is that in many battles you are expected to fight in the non-supporting role. It doesn't fit into the game if it can't hold it's own on some level. Brit line is fail!

SACK THE VOICE ACTOR
I WANT TO HEAR MARK NOT M K FFS
GET IT RIGHT

Further more you say the Centurion Mk1 (pronounced Mark 1) is well armoured. No it isnt. 76mm of upper and lower glacis with the wedge being 116mm is not what I call well armoured
Seems WG doesnt know its own values
