A few patches ago wg said they will remove this ultra annoying useless dog poo from the game, yet they didnt do anything about it. 95% of the players use the t49 to annoy everybody, and they wont scout, even if they are the only ones with scout on the team... Getting blasted for half or even 80% health by a kv2 on steroids is not fun at all. I would consider nerfing the gun or remove it completely, t8 is already broken, we dont need these game breaking tanks...

Why would you bother to scout in a T49 at all? Scouts have all but had their day apart from a few maps. Of course lights can be massively effective but they're largely outclassed by meds.

 

The gun itself is extremely troll. For every pen you'll get loads of 300dmg shots. The aim time is absolutely glacial too.

T49 hitting for 1000? Wow that is so 2014, get ready for next patch and FV4005s zooming around for 50kph and hitting for 1800 with much better gun handling than T49 :trollface:

Voted both options on both polls, hated the derp anyway (too much of a lottery) and didn't use it when I had T49.

 

Yes you get one good shot every ten battles maybe, the rest of the time you do double figure damage and die before you can reload.

No and no.

If you get hit by it, it's basically your own fault. The gun handling is terrible.

If you get PENNED by it... well then. It has less pen than the KV-2 at tier 6 (more than 10% less) and the KV-2 gets to snack on tier 4 tanks...

T49 is broken like every other high alpha tank, complete rng noob tube. They should have gone through with the removal, it's basically an arty.

I was aiming for one of the squares but hit all 4 of them. Oh well, a little HE splash hasn't killed anyone.

Removed? I'm sure they never said anything like that. It was moved up a tier a few patches back to. I'm sure you did notice all the LT changes around that time. And it was the patch that made LT's into "normal" tanks, as the scout MM was removed. So now most LT are TD's.

 

Then again I've not even used the derp on mine since the LT changes. 90mm snaps so much better, and have more DPM then even the derp with HE. So as a light, I'm more scared of a T49 with the 90mm vs the 152. As then you can't really win a 1 on 1 vs it, even if you get the first shot in.

I do recall that at first the Sheridan derp was moved ONLY to the tier 10 Sheridan and removed from T49, but the outcry from community upon hearing it was so much that they reinstated the prototype Sheridan turret and gun back to the tier 9 T49. I personally like it, it's troll and fun at times, but not very competitive. Just like KV-2.

From your point of view as the target that T49 hits hard every time. From the point of view of the T49 driver that hit is one of only a very few. So I voted no to both questions. Players like yourself are why WG seem insistent on homogenising tanks, especially LTs.

They wanted to remove the derp gun, i think it was gone when t10 lights hit the sandbox server. Then when they came to the regular test server the t49 had its derp gun back, just like Bulldog and its autoloader(was gone, came back heavily nerfed). This shows us all you need to do is cry like a little kid and find people who would cry with you, then they will give your the sweets just to shut you up.

The derp is a very tricky gun to do well with. It's great against light armour but you either have to be up close or all the planets need to be aligned for it to actually do max damage. Most of the time it either misses or does 300 dmg. The reload is long and the aim is bloody painful.

Scouting is the same no matter what gun you have. The whole idea is that you DON'T shoot (when passive scouting anyway). It's a mindset to scout or not.

The gun should absolutely stay on this tank. It's unique. It should not be nerfed.

Well, as they said to me, "deal with it". It is a part of the game. It is also quite fun to play, because all the darn LT's have to be standard and not unique.

Would like to see you arguing that the KV-2 should be removed because it doesnt take skill

My advice to OP.
Get it and try it, you'll be surprised how many non pens you get. It's a toy compared to tanks like both Types, 183, JP100 and KV-2.
Judging from you cries i assume you are not using the derp on your Pz.IVH to oneshot other tanks out of fairness?

Get rid of the gun. T49 is a currently a disabled limb in a team based game.

Thats why its (almost) never us in serious team games like Advance, skirmish or CW...but in randoms it is fun to play every now and then...do not aim too long, say your RNG-prayer and click....

 

And it is definitely not like arty that can shoot all game long unspotted,  once a T49/KV-2 derp gun fires you will get spotted so then you have to evade shells, dodge enemy arties, reload and reposition to find your next target...

If you need to exaggerate or lie, your point must be quite weak...
