NA gave this tank to previous owners of the FV4202P, we had to do a marathon, or buy it for hard cash. GG

For that amount of money there are FAR better premium tanks that you can buy. And if you chip in a bit more there are still FAR better premium tanks to buy.

 

On a more important note: Where is the announcement for the patch you released today?! Are you guys sleeping?

We are the richest people of all WOT players and we play more than NA, what do you expect? Have more, pay more.

FV4202 (P), the tank that for some reason is the same tier as IS-3A and IS-6?

 

No thanks.

And if the previous owners completed the marathon, they got 8000 gold as they already had the fv4202p in their garage. They got gold and not credits...

Did the buffs make it worth playing for you guys? 35 speedlimit makes me wonder if I want to take it for a spin.

You hardly see yourself as a top tier in that tank. In this game, you were one ;)

About 80% of games I played with the FV4202 were tier VIII... this tank is great in them, but can and will struggle in tier X games, maybe even in tier IX depending on the MM.

 

Here is my review of this tank

 

Pro:

* tier VIII earnings - took me 2 weeks of playing acasionaly to buy a tier X tank - that "expensive shells" rant is a bunch of BS, Lowe has more expensive shells and no one is complaining and you had to pay to get it

* great ridge line fighter, can hold a hill - no problem

* ok reload (6,9 without vents and BiA, with them it's 6.6)

* excellent pen

* after the buff - snapshots!

* for me it's better then my T34 because it's a med and I can control my engagements better - despite the slow speed

* it really dominates tier VIII battles

* bouncy turret and sometimes hull, but for full effect you need a good ridge

* it was FREE :)

 

Con:

* really slow - biggest problem is that at the start of the battle you need to know where to go because once you're there it will be a long time to get anywhere else, so if the battle is going on on the second part of the map- good luck getting there :D

* has to be a 3rd line support tank in tier X games

* low alpha can be felt in higher tier games

* struggles in tier X games because you'll get penned from by EVERYTHING from ANYWHERE - even from 400m

* depending on the MM it can struggle in tier IX games as well

 

 

Final conclusion: I really really like it, my friend that has 2x the number of battles then me and is better then me agrees - it's a nice premium tank. With the buff it will be even better and it will hold it's own in tier VIII battles. No, it's not a CDC or a Patton KR BUT the way I see it -> it was free so everything that I said in the CON department really doesn't bother me that much. I mean come on, it's a 30 euro premium tank that I got for free. :)

 

In short: players that know what they are doing will have no problems with this tank

Not worth the grind, and not worth any money.

That top speed limit of 35kph totally killed it for me

and that 2,6 second aim time? almost Soviet aim time so non British

I really wanted to buy it, but not now

 

its far to slow in the current meta of WOT and cannot flank at all I have happily killed a few of these tanks in my battles and it wasn't hard, is so slow a big fat waddling duck lovely!

play this in a Tier 10 game MM! lol o lol o lol ~ sorry WG no thanks! rather hammer nails in my head, less painful


War Gaming must really hate the British and how!

It's buffed a little bit:  Aim time 2,6> 2,3 s; Disp. 0,35> 0,33 and Terrain resist also. Rest is the same. It became more snipy, because of low top speed imho. I'll wait for him to be added ingame but still i'm not convinced that worth at all.
