I don't think either of those or in fact any other HT compete directly with Kranwagnanangnznwn. The turret mixed with autoloader is really unique and not contended by anything in this game atm.

So you say it is worth the grind for a "upper mid player" ? Or is it a "unicum only" tank, I mean worth for those making any tank seem OP ?

Nothing is worse then WZ 120 stock grind, No way. 

Emil 2 can be trash, but WZ 120 is more then TRASH.

Discover OP tank

Research and buy same OP tank.

Decide its not that OP

move on.

 

Yes the turret is very annoying when its all you can see to shoot at but there are a lot of tanks like that.

If you find a tank that's very mobile with great hull and turret armour and a good gun then its maybe OP.

Well this POS is gone.

 

Not elite just gone.

 

I can abide this rubbish any more. Plenty of fun tanks to play and this is not one of them.

 

That is the entire Swedish nation Binned.  This Emil rubbish and the passive Redline camping Parasite of a Tank destroyer line which i binned at the UDES.

 

Just a shame i have Swedish crews wasting away.  A shame they cant emigrate to another nation.

Don't go for them. The turret only works to 90deg angle. If anyone can see the side of your turret at even a slight angle they will pen you, also your hull sticks out and bounces nothing, the gun handling is horrible and the intraclip is trash. 

 

If you want a hull down fire support platform get the Super Conqueror.

I also gave up on the Swedish nation for now. Too many other better tanks to research & buy. The Swedes can wait their place in the line (which is almost the last place, most likely, slightly before Japanese heavies & remaining arties).

Both Jap Heavies and STRVs are not bad lines. Just specific.

None of them are worth the time and credits. Even when you get to a good hull down position, you can't do much of anything because your 1) gun handling is among the worst in tier 2) accuracy is mediocre 3) penetration is bad, and 4) DPM is awful. The Kranvagn especially feels like it should be one tier lower, because it's lacking in so many departments. All it has going for it, is a strong-ish turret and good gun depression. Everything else about the vehicle is gimped, even the autoloader with its ridiculously long intra clip reload. Like with the tier 10 lights, that's what we get when too much attention is paid to the whining of bad players.

43% now and getting worse with top gun. Only play for x2 but takes time. Next patch dealing with other tanks I pressume. Nothing broken here.

This is just ridicolous. 

All other autoloaders or heavies will buttfck u all over since The Amount of perfect hills for Emil2 is slim to none AND RELOAD IS 40S and 3,33 between shots. Worse than Emil 1.

Emil1 sucked..but Emil2..omg. T10 with heat cuts my turret like butter in hull down. Jeesus this tank is broken

And Kranvagn gets same gun...wtg

Wish I had stopped at Leo.

NOW FIX THE GOD DAMN TREE

Disliked every Swedish tank on the heavy line so far. Sold them all and Leo fast as I could. The Emil 1 is slow to get anywhere, slow turret travers, slow aim, most shots bounce or miss. Mainly bottom tier. Long reload, 38 seconds at stock and now at 32 seconds.

Most teams rage at you because they think you should be at the frontline brawling. They don't realise how bad this tank is and think your doing nothing while you try to explain "I'm still reloading". Only one battle has gone good so far with 4100k damage, the rest I'm bottom tier and lucky if I get 100 to 200 damage after all the bounces and misses if I even get near any tanks to do anything being so slow. A good team just rushes and takes out the enemy while you crawl along wishing for some kind of combat. Stay away from this line big time.

Crew ded all the time, fuel tanks and gun destroyed almost every game. One-shot killed by tier9  arty multiple times (even tier8 on occasion). Im just adding to the rest of the failures of this crap.

I have a competition, find me a more annoying tank?

I'm more a medium and light tanks player, and I'm very very bad with heavy tanks.

I was surprised to do quite well in the Emil I. Probably because I'm used to paper support tanks. I have more fun in this tank than the IS-3 (for instance) which I can't make work properly.

I just elited Emil 1 and decided to keep him. I had a lot of fun with him,one of my favorite tanks.

Just hoping that Emil 2 will be the same. Dont get why people hate him, it was really easy grind to me.

I'm fairly new but seriously?

 

If you are dinging on the turret then maybe stop shooting it and find another way?

unlocked Emil 1 two days ago. very interesting tank. turret is worse than expected still a fun tank. go front, use depression, success.

the only bad thing is the huge arty dmg it takes. i may try using heavy spall liner.
