You also hate it when your team is facerolling enemy?

I'm in my AT7 making literally a whole circle through Paris but the tank is too slow to keep up you don't see any enemies... Same with Jap heavies sometimes especially on maps with a lake in the middle or something. So annoying to win a battle without seeing a single enemy... 0 damage dealt.. But... I could do not nothing... All enemies die before I even get there...

 

Armor + slow tank = double fail.

 

Same problem when winning a little slower. I can't join the cleanup-crew I miss out on so much xp&credits just for having a terrible capped max speed

Yeah totally agree with you, they should buff every Japanese heavy, slow TD to at least 80kph top speed and while they are at it also give them a 2000HP engine...

Actually....

Armour = slow tank , with few exceptions I can't recall.

 

I really don't care about "armour", though. Anyting in the game can and will pen you. Why not trade it in for firepower and mobility?

Well look at it this way....when the enemy roflstomps your team you are the one they are going to have the most problems with...at least from the front.

Oooh, the frustration of playing with your recruit... i got Matilda and I'm pretty much crawling in the middle of nowhere at Fjords trying to keep up with O-I exps that roflstomped all opposition before I even got a glimpse of an enemy.

Missed top10 while my recruit with sub 200 games in his B1 had an excellent game.

But I'd rather win a bad game than lose any kind of game.

Pre buff the T95 used to be notorious for this.

Omg I remember the T95 yes 6 years ago... Your team wins so fast and the enemy team is like: Wait... Didn't they have a T95 on their team somewhere... Oh well...

 

@WindSplitter1

I wish I could shed my armor like a snake and just go like a racehorse. Especially on tanks like the Churchill 1 or 3 with 88.9 armor on turret and frontal (UNLSLOPED) for tier 6&7. I'm sure 88.9 armor will stop all tier 9  gold rounds and the 20 km/h top-speed make you slower than the O-NI, OI, etc. These tanks were so amazing I free-exped both of them lol. Sometimes you just want to cross the battlefield naked without armor instead.

 

Yes I need a big button for so many slow TD's to just "plop" all that armor to the ground and gogogo Mario Kart Style.

 

Maybe an idea for next patch: Customize your tanks! Remove armor parts during the first 30 sec of battle as you see fit, change gun, etc. Maybe also change paint jobs and neon lights for that extra swag. I'd love to see a naked, stripped, open JagdTiger with camo and 120km/h topspeed. Basically a platform on tracks with components bare on it lol. Hope it won't rain or you will explode. Maybe a tiny armor box around ammo storage could be a good idea.

This is why I despised the Black Prince so much.

 

Deal 400 damage for your x5 win of the day as your team rolfstomped the enemy 15-3 in under 5-minutes. And you only got that damage because an enemy scout or medium ran in to you trying to get away from your allies.

Ooh, an AT7!!! One of the few things I can overtake in my Bishop!

 

I often have the opposite problem from yours: "All enemies die before I even get there" can very easily turn into "All friendlies die before I even get in range", which is extremely frustrating when you know you could have helped, and the situation is then.... "Oh dear... Oops!".

I had games in my AT 2 where my team died before i did....but they were far behind me...

When I'm in the S1 and the team facerolls the enemy yes, it's a bit frustrating, because I can't keep up with them and will end the match in a victory where my contribution was minimal or even nonexistent.

Happens from time to time but hey, that's the game man. :(

Just had it again, again in my AT7 and again in Paris... I even went straight for the center but nope forget it. Shot a LT who tried to run from my team and arty and then another LT again (lucky). Still kinda sad result.

 

Game after it I had the opposite problem, heavy tank was circle me in city map because my allies suddenly all went hunt a LT so they left me alone in the alley and I'm not mobile enough so the heavy facetanked 2 hits and then killed me by circling.

 

3rd map: I took out Tiger 1 and Tiger P all solo all by myself. Then my team comes (finally) in and kills the arty behind it because I'm not fast enough... there goes my reward...

 

Mobility = king and even more on turretless tanks. Seriously mobility = king.

I think thats his idea. Who grinds the AT-7 unless they want to get that 183mm turbolaser?

Yeah grinding it for the 183mm :) because the AT7 is only good if you are toptier tank and even then pray your team does not faceroll enemies and if you are alone and you see an E25, RUN! It will circle you...

 

Also AT7 has same problem as O-NI: tiny tanks can hide in front of your tank and you can't shoot it (not enough gun depression). Yes it's THAT bad on AT7. Some BIS did it to me and I was like: WUT is this game mechanic?

Hang on in there and soon enough, you'll hear your commander say this:

 

"You may fire when ready"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tarkin reference to firing the Death Star turbolaser, because you just got the FV 215b (183)

I prefer a good loss over a steamroll victory.  I have already stopped playing most of my sluggish tanks due to current meta as they are just not fun.  Yes t28/t95 can block a street or a choke point but so what if you can have so much fun in med/light anyways?

 

As for armor, as people have already mentioned - armor is useless as it can save you from the first shot before people switch to gold (given they haven't started with gold spam immediately)

Oh... Threads like this make me realise how slow I am to think things through. Pay me no attention, then. :)
