Considering,is very cheap,i might buy it. Altho i never liked the Excelsior.

*cough* side armor *cough*.

Probably will stick to my SU-85I,it just rocks anything.

The Excelsior is actually pretty tough, has decent dpm and with prem rounds not that naff in the gun department. One thing to not forget... 100mm of bum armour. I usually run 50/50 on the ammo and switch between depending on the target.

 

Also

It might be fine,besides,i could use my TOG crew.

But my SU85I was a monster:

DPM: 2000+

Reload: 3.56

Turns like a carousel,and camo makes it invisible.

(Yeah,thats my ISU-152 4th skill crew at 90% atm. :) )

Given the closing line in the news text, can we expect that every member of our clan gets a free bundle? :medal:

Thank you very much in advance. :)

Well.. I already have the excelsior and very few battles in it...

Right now, I'm very sceptical.

Everything with 110+ pen often goes through the turret. Ok, I should angle it when I reload.. But I also have to show it from the front when I need to shoot..

 

Ok, it's mobile. But every shell that hits the middle of the UFP kills the driver. :(

I even installed spall liner to stop my pilot to be knocked out in every battle ^^

 

And finally, a lot of people press the "Magic 2" whenever they see an Excelsior..

 

I'll see if I can do better with more training on this tank.. :/

Angle?What angle? With angling,you only expose your sides. Which are made of karton (if i said that right)

Karton = cardboard, you spelled it correctly :)

 

Not an interesting offer for me, I'd rather use my Tog for crew training. Works great in experienced Tog platoons (fleets)..

 

Maybe nice for someone who needs a low budget Brit heavy trainer and wants a few days of grinding-premium.. but to be honest its smarter to buy the tank at a discount...

I was talking of angling the turret.. turret sides are ok.. ;)

 

I only try to angle the hull at street corners, when I can hide sides..

Excelsior is useless, might be a bit more useful as heavy crew trainer since TOG will go out but that gun... 

You can now buy it for 10 euros and eventually pay double that for gold ammo costs.

I don't want to be mr conspiracy here. But they are really pushing premiums lately, which makes me think the income is lowering possibly because of the ruble going down, or they are cleaning the garages entirely come next year, to make room for the new premium cahscows. Well duh.. Guess i was rhetorical there...Get em while you caaaaan!!! epic premiums that will never retuuuurn!

And mark my words. The announcement of Wot 2.0 should be neigh. Bigworld engine is crap, always was, always will be. Wot concept is awesome, but on the wrong engine.

 

Make a tomb with some nice words about me, when it happens. Incase i'm not around.

Wouldn't mind a small reference to Nostradamus on the stone.

From the enslaved populace, songs,
Chants and demands
While princes and lords are held captive in prisons.
These will in the future by headless idiots
Be received as divine prayers.

Re examined my excelsior I think I bought it because of the on paper stats and it was on sale.

Having owned one for a some time it does have 2 problems the gun pen and the gun depression.

 

It says its got -13 gun depression but im pretty sure thats to the sides its not 13 at the front so its not 13 usable gun depression probably about 5 at the front.

The gun for a heavy is terrible so expect to take a fair few gold rounds 144 pen is better than 91

Some of the cheaper premiums have proved quite good if you get good matchmaking which you frequently do.

 

I like the Matilda IV because of the great gun depression might be the best in the game its got a decent armour and the gun mantle is good.

Though its gun is low pen if it had a derp gun it would be perfect but it only sees tier 6 so still good.

 

T14 similar advantages and problems

 

Bought them cheap so im happy
