If you like the little cruisers you'll love the Cromwell. The gun's ok- similar (a wee bit better imho) to what the Americans on the same tier have to put up with. Armour is glass, but again, no different to many other mediums. But omfg, can it move! It's not just fast, it climbs like a mountain goat and turns on a ha'penny. The camo's pretty decent, too. It's a very nice package.

The Crusader is something else entirely. The lack of speed, non-existent armour and an unremarkable gun can be a bit of a let down. Don't give up on her, though. The camo is good, gun depression to the sides is very handy (shite to the front!) and it can climb better than most mediums. Try to use the map to your advantage. Use cover- the Crusader is so low almost anything you see can be used- and don't get into a stand up fight. Shoot, then slink off to the side and shoot again.

Hth!  :blinky:

Coming from the Cruisers/Covenanter (had a lot of fun with them), I found the Crusader to be a tough nut. One that I failed to crack btw, but I had some nice games in it anyway. The Cromwell, however, is great fun and much more alike the Cruisers, IMO. It's blazing fast, pretty agile, has a very decent top gun, great gun depression, weak armour. But with 750 hp, you don't get one-shot-killed, so there is a (very) small margin for mistakes. There is a very nice dedicated guide to the Cromwell somewhere else on the forum. Read it!

In short: I liked the Cruisers. Me & the Crusader did not match well. I love the Cromwell. It's my first keeper.

Have fun!

Wow 5-6 kills in average!
Do you know what average means?
I'm asking, because your curent stats tell a very different story.

Using the scroll wheel on your mouse, appling some reading skills would help you to extract some possible playstyles for you from the forum.

I suggest to follow StClement comments on Crusaders playstyles , you seem to like so much from what I've been reading so far.

The Cromwell is my favourite tank in the entire game, that thing is simply amazing.
Circle death to the max, 1 v 1 in an open area, I don't think there is a better tank of any tier.
