Type 5 is op. That is all.

 

(Inspired by a meaningless wall of text previously posted in this section.)

Type 5 is not OP, it's a money maker for WG. Want to know why?

 

1. It has very good frontal armor with no angles at all which causes 2 kinds of situations:

- a rare one - more experienced and better players aim at it's weaker parts or flank it - yes it's not always easy, it is not meant to be

- a common one - people load HEAT which makes Type 5's armor completely irrelevant

 

2. It has a choice of 2 guns:

- the one most people don't mount - 14cm gun that is simply not good enough to be a good alternative for the howitzer

- the one most people mount - 15cm howitzer which is barely worse in any aspect than the 14cm one and has "the most stupid idea ever" binded under the "2" key. And by "the most stupid idea ever" I mean a premium HE shell that is not worse anyhow than the regular one but simply gives you more alpha damage for more credits.

 

Putting it short: Type 5 players are often tempted to use howitzers and throw their credits down the sink spamming with premium HE and players fighting Type 5 usually spam premium rounds at it also sinking their credits. It is a perfect business soilution for WG - everyone uses premium ammo, so everyone will need premium accounts and tanks to earn credits for it.

 

EDIT: typo

Sure it's OP. Nothing stopping anyone from getting one if they fancy it.

just shoot other tanks and let your own team's gold spammers take care of the Type 5...

Sorry. It doesn't have frontal weakspots.

So you can aim wherever you want on its front and fail to pen unless you drive a 300+ pen tank.

Is this the chewbacca defense? If you didn't get your orders back then the Type 5 is OP?

I am interested that what made you post that in a thread not anyhow related to your question?

 

This is beyond next level. I am confused.
