Man, you do have some sort of complex, don't you? Does it really bother your narrow mind that much that someone actually enjoys this tank? Also, why don't you have balls enough to post here on the forum with your real account name? Isn't that a bit pathetic and childish?


Enjoy your desktop battles little man. Hope your great stats makes you feel big, awesome and importent.

P.S. I played SP when I started in WoT. Sold it and haven't played it for years. 

 

Enoying a tank and it actually being a competative tank are different things. i want competative or near competative tanks. i call it BALANCE. WG dont seem to grasp that concept tho. too much vodka.

 

Also. dont get butthurt over someone on the internet, seriously. im not the one throwing insults and then calling the person a child at the same time. thats called hypocrisy.

It's a very very tricky tank to play and i do struggle with it. 

 

The gunhandling is crap and the penetration is mediocre. 

 

Hard tank to play, needs some serious buff, atleast much better gunhandling.

You claim others aren't having a constructive discussion yet you yourself say DPM doesn't matter? Are you for real?

 

dpm doesn't matter though

look at e50m, one of the lowest dpm for tier 10 mediums yet it's one of the best tanks at tier 10. stb-1 is another example it has god like dpm but crap gun.

 

dpm is irrelevant if the gun platform is super bad.

FV4202p has nothing but pen. not even dpm, no armor no speed nothing. sometimes if a platforms that bad. dpm is the only thing you CAN give it.

After 50 games in the Revolörizer I give up. To a mediocre player like myself this tonk delivers nothing but pain and agony. Obviously some people also in this thread can make it work, yet I don't see it worthwhile. I can't think of a single situation where the Rivoluriluri would shine or even have an edge. I would highly recommend not buying this Tinker Bell tenku.

one of the worst tanks in my garage

Its slow I coudnt run circle against t32 for example

low pen and huge spread very slow aim and its a f paper I got a WR of 20% in this tank

 

it doesnt have any strenghts other than damage which isnt so great 370+ hits arent worth is combined with long loading

 

cant think of any positive thing about this tank

its utter crap

one of the worst premiums I own

I like it well enough though we are talking a tier 5 tank hull and turret at tier 8 though it does have a great gun.

 

I was hoping that this would be the supersherman.

 

It is but its only in the sense that it is the French idea from which the Israelis created the Supersherman M50 and 51.

 

If it were only a little more mobile

It is a tank not suited for the unexperienced ones. It is pretty useless in skirmishes but you can achieve sth in random.

The problem is the gun handling. On the one side snap shots do not work. On the other side it take ages to aim.

As long the enemy is not pushing you can punish them with deep holes in their tankes.

Doing better and better in it if I have to say it myself. I have really have to emphasize that it's a SUPPORT medium. You can't push or really be aggressive in it unless maybe you are the only tier 8 with butt loads of tier 6's.

Slam optics on it, sit back a bit, take shots of enemies who think they are cheeky, wait for the game to develop and let your allies take the attention.

(No, don't snipe all game unless you are bottom tier and you are facing almost purely heavily armored tanks. Go with your allies)

Regarding penetration it's quite simple: Don't shoot at enemies you can't pen. Hold your fire and wait for them to turn their side or simple engage a different target. APCR is [edited]against sloped armor but fast tanks playing speedy games are fairly easy to hit. RIP scouts.

Yeah if the Charioteer was a french premium medium that could farm credits and train my FRENCH crew...

Its been a couple of months since I commented and things havent changed much I still don't regret buying it

 

Playing it like a TD seems to work pretty well but its still got the same problems of a low tier ww2 tank playing with the big boys.

If they can shoot at you then you are in deep trouble.

 

The changes being tested will make things a lot better.

Bigger engine is likely to be the best improvement this tank badly needs a mobility boost and while there may be no increase in top speed we should be able to reach that speed much more quickly.

 

Currently the M4A1 has a 460 engine and weighs a lot more than the easy 8 sherman which has a 520.

They are testing the M4A1 with a 550 engine which should give it a much better power to weight and im hoping makes it similar to an Easy 8 in mobility.

If the speed improves as a consequence so we get the easy eights 48kph rather than 40 even better

200apcr is not good enough. it will never be good enough. tier 5 hull/turret and they think these buffs will matter? i think not.

Fun? i bounced the side of E100 flat on 3 times in a row. the guns pen is still a POS. buff the aimtime and engine all you want. it was fine before. IT NEEDED A FKING PEN BUFF!  250 HEAT is FKING AWEFULL. this tank is still a pile of sh**.

shoot at turret side if possible

 

also just avoid engaging a tier 10 superheavy with tier 8 medium

 

Almost everyone else is now saying its pretty good, lol. Yea pen buff would have been good but the gun handling, depression and engine power buffs were pretty damn significant for me. And most others.

This. I've only played one battle in it today but 3k damage and 3 kills is well above my averages. The map wasn't a great one for trying out the new gun depression (Ruinberg) but the mobility driving away from spawn was enough to make me smile, then the reduced aim time made me grin. It's more or less the tank I hoped it'd be when I bought it, though it should be noted that I have a lot more experience than I did back then. :)
