With the now damage and stun mechanics. What is the opinion. Should you maximize rate of fire over average damage. Or is still bigger considered better?

Of course... but to be an effective and helpful team member. Is it now optimal to configure for Rate Of Fire or Damage Per Hit?

Which tank? Generaly, at least as far as soviets and us goes, top gun is just better. Longer stun with bigger splash and even meaningful damage (sometimes).

The damage fall-off is just so terrible that doing 100 damage with 150-152mm guns is just not worth it, even if you can hit it twice as often. Big guns might not shoot as fast but you can do consistant damage, and stun is ignored by other players either way so no point thinking about it.

yeah I was thinking of going from 2rpm to 5rpm with a drop from 600 avg dam to 450. Then as I keep them stunned the heavies will storm in and finished them off. You know teamplay. Then I woke and up and had some cornflakes.

 

Thanks for the conf that it probably won't be worth it.

just tried it with the Crusader SP... no stun on the lower gun. So that was a busted flush. Fun though peppering tanks. Was a win with 2 kills.

My experience of M53/55 is that at least I do better with the top gun. Don't under estimate your dmg potential.

I do quite consistent 2-3,5k with top gun and struggled to breach 1,5k with the bottom gun while the assist dmg remained pretty much the same.
