Am bored of supposedly comparable T10 TD mismatch. How can a 2 tankers of equal ability, one in an Object 268 and the other in a Foch-B completely outmatched by ridiculous alpha...How can I compete against a 6 shot magazine of the Foch-B as I'd really like to know? Ideas on the back of a postcard please. 

 

Cheers

Don't be an idiot and stay out in the open allowing the Foch to unload all 6 shots into you?

never engage him 1 vs 1 in short range?

catch him when hes reloading..?

find some advantageous position where you can bounce 2 of his shots?

exchange shots efficiently?? that means fire and then get cover untill you reload??  its 750 alpha vs 400 alpha if you can to this...

There are many ways to fight it, it's not immortal.

The question you should have asked is... why are those kinds of tanks in the game?

Diversity? Yes. But be careful... that's also true for arty. :P

Fun? For those who like playing gamebreaking tanks... yes. For the rest? Not so much, I'd say.

Reali-... no.

Don't sit in front of him and let him shoot you 6 times. Anything else we can help you with?

i dont have any problem with fArtys on this point. they simply make this game a bit different from CounterStrike with vehicles...

WG simply must develop some new game modes or objectives like destroying buildings, areas...etc to make fArtys better and more usefull in their role - bombardment - not only vs enemy tanks, because are not designed only for this

 

fun, of course...if you dont play some autoloaders you cant know what means their fun...and why others play them...

 

well...from what i know...autoloading systems really existed...so..?

It has crapstandard pen for a td... its an autloader so anywhere from 1-5 shells in that clip will magically not pen / miss unless you are point blank range side on.

The question you should have asked is... why are those kinds of tanks in the game?

 

The really really really deep question is... where there are so much of those kinds of tanks in the game?

And (almost) any new line must have one of two of them (usually broken)?

well, try to stay at medium to long range and you will easely bounce them..or just hide your lowerplate and wiggle your td, it usually works for me until i reload and hit him again. Also try to stay behind a cover so you have some retreat options. and never stay alone.

Simple, the Foch B will bounce at least 2-3 shots of the 6 round clip because it has shitty pen whereas the Obj268 will pen every shot.

 

Yesterday played my Foch and I bounced most of my (premium ammo) shots on two IS-7's at 450m distance. You bounce regular AP on tier 8 heavies for some magical reason, it's classical French, the Foch(155) had the same problem of at least 1 shell per clip being a bounce or a BS miss.

I watched a 1v1 situation yesterday where a foch tracked the E50M.

there are many other situations much worse than this. How do you think a tier 8 medium feels when it peeks and sees a 183?
