Eddie, stop being silly dude.

It's a fast KV-2 versus tier 9s and 10s.

It's pure RnG.

It can do miracles.

It can work like a charm.

But most of the times it won't. :smile:

bang on bro.


Guy just wants his tank so he can stat pad some more.

 


 

 

​most tanks are like that. But overall this tank will pull of a miracle more often than other tanks.

This tank is just ridiculous; it needs to be nerfed, nerfed and then nerfed some more.

why?

 

Is an inaccurate, slow aiming gun with miserable penetration leading to most shots only doing 2-300 dmg every 20s too much for you to cope with?

 

Maybe we should remove the KV-2 too? It gets to see tier 4s, has less reticle bloom, more armour, and a higher penetration shell while having almost the same reload. It only lacks the speed of the T49, has enough alpha to one-hit any tank on its tier (bar the TOG)

NERF???? In fact t-49 is in need of a gun buff!! I played 70 battles in it. Awful dispersion, really awful, and did I say AWFUL? Even if you are 20 mtrs away of an enormous german heavy, you can fail to hit even fully aimed (well, you usually hit the soil or the sky). KV2 has the magic soviet accuracy (hidden stats because of the russian market), but this tank has not.

 

Snapshots are a nightmare, sniping is a "no way dude", reload is a "wait for me to shoot and you can rape me", the movement is sluggish (somewhat t25 med german), turret turning ratio is heavy-ish

 

In fact you can only do 2 things: scouting (try this on corridors), or brawl with heavies to compensate the über-crap accuracy and retarded-reloading of your gun. If you brawl, and if you hit, usually you only hit for 200-300 dmg, and then, reload for another 20 secs. Beside of this, take into account that enemy tanks consider you as a main target because you have no armor, no life, no speed and a loooooong reload, but a gun that can wreck their tank => they see you as one more easy kill and one less powerful gun => YOU ARE A CANDY FOR HIGH ALPHA ENEMIES.

 

Pros: it has that random factor that render it really fun sometimes. In some cases, it can break the resistance of a heavily armored tank blocking a corridor. Sometimes it can do 800 dmg to another scouts or low armored enemies. BUT, expect tons of frustration when driving this underpowered piece of crap.

we'll the starter seems a professional trolololol :-)
 
 
And I agree with 150+ games if anything it needs a buff OR AP ammo for the 90mm gun. After that it will be usable and competitive. Otherwise HEAT spam is the only way to really be consistant in it.

So how's the starter 90mm? I'm a bit confused by the standard shell pen?

 

Level Gun Standard Shell Penetration (mm) Standard Shell Damage Rate of Fire (rounds/min) Dispersion at 100 m (m) Aiming Time (s) Experience Weight/Load Limit (t) Cost,
VIII 90 mm Gun T132E3 102/250/45 320/240/320 9.52 0.38 2.3 0 653 95000

"Standard shell" on 90 mm is HEP, kinda like HE on small steroids (I think it's same as HESH). Notice it has same dmg as 90mm HE shell, but greater pen. This gun has no AP rounds.

The 90mm isn't that bad, even if it doesn't suit the tank (bit sluggish) very well. It's a nice antiscout, and can work allright as a flanker, just avoid hitting tracks and learn armor schemes to know where 102mm pen is enough. Tracking targets is also a valid strategy imo, HEAT works fine on e.g. E100s etc. Not a fan of spamming HEAT, but you limit yourself a lot by not carrying a few imo.

Didnt like 90mm, tho.

Unless you load lots of HEAT, its frustating most of time.

Sure, its awesome against rly paper targets, but i did 10-30 dmg of side armor on Centurion 1 like 5 times row...

152mm is honestly only option, if you want to use 90mm get Ru 251.

IMO worst tier 8 LT. Unless you spam HEAT with 90mm, the gun is so random.

So KV2 is not OP but a tank that requires you to sit in the open for as long, has even less amor and faces higher alpha and more armor (less pens) is? How come Su152 also isn't op? Why fv 183 isn't OP? Those little bastards shouldn't be in the game as they are annoying as [edited]and really screw balance but outside of that if t49 needs to be nerfed arty needs to be removed.

Ok the I'm amazed and lost for words at the stupidity of both OP and tankGGG.

 

Please just stop whining and uninstall the game to make life better for the rest of us or go whine on some other forum. 

 

P.S. I think this emote really suites you :arta:

remove this piece of crapallready, together with the waffentrager e-100 the worst designed tank.

Drive around my t110e5, shoot a 900 hp shell in my [edited], drive away without taking a shot because i fired at someone else just before

great design, tanks like these make me stop playing

 

inaccurate my [edited], fast enough to choose your fight, drive point blank and fire...  Bloody tank leads in exp gain half of the bloody t10 games... racking in 2000+ damage done to t10 tanks...

Just grind it and you'll be posting the "buff my t49" -thread :-) asking for accuracity buff.

 

Properly played light tanks end top in xp earned because they are almost exclusively damaging higher tier opponents.

 

Anyway I was already fed up with missing fully aimed almost point blank shots by meters and now using the nice 90mm with some HEAT mixed in. Frustration factor does down hard. Costs some credits but thats the price to pay.

 

averaging a little under 1000dam but with close to 100% accuracy. 1k dam on tier 8 light -> no carry no win - fun anyway :-)

I love the T49. Such a fun tank to play. Of course in the name of balance they made the tank shitty so it doesn't destroy everything. I'm talking about the 152mm. Gun stats are horrible.
Reticle bloom during turret rotation is horrible.
Mobility is sluggish.
Camo is bad, compared to light tanks.
You are a big target and have zero armor.
Ammo rack is made of paper towels and easily damaged or even destroyed, got one-shotted many times.
Every other light or medium tank will kill you one on one, unless you manage to kill them with first shot.

If anything I would lower the aiming time and reduce bloom during turret rotation. There is less bloom if you turn the entire tank! That is just ridiculous.

All that considered I'm still having a blast with it. I'm actually sniping with it from 500 range. Nothing like ninja into heavies [edited]and do 1000 damage. But that doesn't happen often since most maps don't allow it.

Take a look at the posts of OP and TankGGG I think they might be the same person
