Revised opinion:

Total and utter waste of [edited]time.

Can't pen some T7s frontally, and yet the common matchmaking sees T10. Doesn't matter where I shoot, or what ammo I use, the gun is totally ineffectual. 200 pen is absolute dogshite on a tank with paper armour and no mobility to speak of. Another victim of power creep that WG keep pedaling with no [edited]intention of ever making it competitive. If I do 1k dmg in a game I obviously met T6s. 

[edited]this tank. [edited]it right in the [edited]anus.

Nothing changed.

It's utterly terrible.........can struggle through games where it happens to be top tier but you might as well give up versus T9 or T10. You don't have the view range, the mobility or the gun handling to flank.....you don't have the armour to brawl........and if you DO get the sides then more often than not it's some [edited]OP Russian crapyou can't pen anyway. 

Needs a buff to pen and reload time.....at the bare minimum

It's not terrible. Bought it with the bundle, and I'd say it was a good investment. Penetration might be sub-par but that's the price you pay for the high-caliber gun.

1.: It has 390m viewrange. Tier 8 medium VR goes between 380m and 400m. It's enough.

2.: Mobility is a bit worse than most tech-tree mediums (their p/w ratio averages at ~16, the best being T-44 with 22, and the worst being the Panther II with 12). It's not a frontline tank, just a support.

3.: Who the hell wants to brawl in a Rev?

With 200 pen you can not snipe.

With tier 8 MM you can not snipe.

With overbuffed armor you can not snipe.

 

That is, in a nutshell, the 3 reasons that justify that WG forces us to brawl in a Reva.

You can't brawl in it. More precisely, you should not.

However, you could play it a bit more aggressively but that's not called brawling.

It's like those wines from Cotes du Rhone. They get better the more you get of it. :) 

 

I recently abandoned my optics and went for rammer + vents + vstab with some strong coffee to go with it and since then, this tank has been just pure awesomeness. Even got my first ever ace tanker in it a couple days ago. 

 

So "no", I don't regret buying it one bit. I regret buying Panther 8,8 and T34, but not the Rev.

Its an amazing vehicle, I only regret that I didin't buy it earlier. Decent gun handling and godlike shell velocity. And the price of ammo for the damage it provides is really low.. In my opinion, best moneymaking tier8 med prem.
