On the subject of the 10.5 Howitzer, what do you guys think will be the better gun choice after 8.8? Seeing as the damage on the Konisch will be nerfed, but the RoF goes up the DPM will remain somewhat the same. But the amount of damage per shot is what bothers me nonetheless. Is the 10.5 good on this tank?

the thing is your to big and your acceleraton and traverse to low for u to be good at close quarters. On VK it worked out, i had good fun with 105 on it. But i doubt it works  on afk panther.

It seems wg started with names hinting roles. LTP, AFK...since some players did not get the AFK hint, they must nerf the sniper gun that still got used successfully sometimes  :trollface:

Well, with the 10,5 you can at least kill other scouts which will fail with the konisch.

Could be nice with Konisch buffed at 190 dmg, with this retarded nerf - don't bother, it will be useless.

I think I am giving up on my AFK panther with the Konisch nerf, it was bloody hard work getting it to where I am now ((2130 eff 55% win rate) this was achieved with my crew from the VK2801 currently on their 4th secondary at 95%) but the thought of exposing the tank to do 30% less damage is horrible they need to make up an upgrade konisch up for this tank I am sure there is some piece of paper around they could use to base it on historically, alternatively they could just make it up.

8.8update has been major improvement for awfulpanther,match making is better and the increase in rate of fire more than compensates for the reduction in damage,ive had two top gun awards since the patch,,awful panther with the konisch gun good choice,and it leads to the leopards PTA and MK1,both are superb, tier9/10 hellcats,,all in all very good line of tanks to play,,,,btw, Indien pz, great as well :teethhappy:

Matchmaking is better? not for me, average tier of enemies last 30 games: 8.95 (scouts excluded).
You have a 45% winrate in this tank, are you a troll?
Edit:
You can check my stats on noobmeter.com i played AFKP exclusive last games and you will see the drop in average damage since the patch.

to be honest win/lose means nothing to me KILL/DEATH ratio, what game about for me,,,trust me before 8.8 nearly every game tier10,now more often than not tier 8/9 an awfulpanther can hold its own in those tiers so yeah matchmaking is better,not sure and dont even care how much youve played or how good your win/loose ratio is,it doesnt intrest me,im simply giving my impressions of the awfulpanther and for me its loads better,make your own mind up  :blinky:

Hmph.. are you one of those rushing in to grab an easy kill after someone else worked hard to make it that, and be so high about top gun with 500dmg dealt?
Win rate is the most important stat for many, because it can not really be farmed solo. If you boost it by platooning up with good players or some such, at least you do not hurt your teammates like with farming other stats deliberately.

I tried it and have shelved it. I have played it to unicom standards and it just doesn't have the umph needed now to deal with t10 tanks. you are often spotted each time you shoot so alpha damage is more important on this tank. The 105 just doesn't have the pen to do the job and the Konisch doesn't have the damage. luckily I have 118k exp saved for the t8 so I can just leave this tank retired now.

This tank is nothing but a credit sink. It's not a scout, not really. I played it like a medium. Premium ammo has very nice penetration. But that's about the only positive thing I can say.

Why? Iam only driving solo and random...
And no, afk is still horribel. I mean they already complain on the new t5 heavy (which isnt realy great, but the konisch makes it worth playing at t5)  about the dmg of this gun....
sure, i had some nice matches but its performance hits a wall with this gun.

Trolling the troll? Although he did give a very good picture of himself.

@Mieep did I reply that to your comment? :amazed: In fact did I write AFK Panther is a good tank anywhere?

Well I do think one can make this tank work. Sometimes I managed to as well. But that does not make it a good tank. It is a peashooter sniper medium like Panther, but with scout mm and less penetration (yes, obviously one needs less penetration to deal with higher tier tanks...). In turn it is more mobile, has smaller turret, but that is not enough to make it anything resembling a scout. Or even a T8+ brawler medium.
