Yes, the Type 5 is kinda stupid.

It is a light tank, but not particularly fast, nor does it have particularly good view range to do scouting.

you claim the vk is the most overpowered tank in the game

 

 

You're grinding for the Maus dude, who gives a damn about the VK? (which is already more annoying than the tier VIII jap)

 

A type 5 has lower DPM than an Easy 8, the true monstruosity is the line you're grinding, not japanese heavies that nobody's playing anyway because they are, on top of being the worst damage dealers, the most expensive tanks to run.

 

And don't even throw armor into the equation, the Maus has much better armor than the 100% flat type 5.

O-Ho with the 10cm is arguably one of the worse tier 8 heavies so its pretty laughable trying to make it out to be more OP than the Defender.

O-Ho confirmed better than Defender gais

 

 

O-my what a useless under powered tank, it only practically equals the results of the most OP premium tank to ever make its way to the battlefield, and go on to unlock even more powerfully OP tanks even more noob friendly and less reliant on actually any tactics or game knowledge whatsoever with even more ridiculous amounts of armour and hp, throw in a derp gun with the higher tiers to go full tard mode altogether now not even requiring the need to aim for weak spots. Just point what's now basically a fokking artillery gun strapped to a mobile bunker at decent players trying sidescrape and hull down aiming in vein at your no frontal weak points and derp them into submission, wrecking their modules and tracks all the way to also mop up thousands of damage assist while you're at it.. you are correct when you say the worst tanks but not in the way you mean "worst" tanks, they're the worst tanks for this game in terms of their negative influence and effect on positive, brain oriented playstyle

reading graphs is hard

Also, you compare it  using the 10cm, then go on to complain about the derp gun....Y'do  know they're two different guns, right?

I supose all of thouse anime avatars and banners you have makes you love a completely fictional anime tank...

 

My point is not about the type 5 heavy being OP, its about not having any weakspots to exploit... 

 

you wont see me complain about the maus or any other tank in the game, because other tanks have weakspots.. the type 5 heavy doesnt...

thats the problem...

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the nation with the most fake tanks in this game is China, courtesy of Kongzhong.

So I don't see how that comment is relevant to this thread.

I agree. Type 5 is broken, but hey, want to smile?

I wached a video by WG called "how block damage" and the had the impudence of calling the cupola a "weackspot"! :teethhappy:

 

Hehe. Had the pleasure of trying to hit it with my Ferdinand.. not a single penetration of the ones that hit. Only premium works.. if you can hit it, that is.

I was playing on E halluf with the VK 100 P,

 

And that is fine when top tier? I don't suspect many -2 guns having a chance on any "weakspot" that thing has.

And this is so silly, because all you had to do was leaving at least a commander hatch weakspot, a driver port weakspot, anything.

 

They did not do that on your VK. If you hide that lower plate, not many guns when you are top tier has much of a chance vs it. Heck the IS-6 with gold ammo can't even take on your lower plate. And not many guns can pen the VK's commanders hatch either. As it has more effective armor then most have AP pen. And yet you complain about the Type 5? And what is the end line for the VK then? An even more broken tier X that even less can pen vs the Type 5.

 

Most that complain about the Jap HT's have never played them. Do that first. You might notice they are crappy mulitaskers, they are only effective if they have 6 guns behind them, their armor don't work that well all the time as everyone presses 2 or spams HE when they see it, and their AP guns are more or less 90% useless. And the non derp Type 4's and 5's can't even pen them self half the time either. I've not kept a single tank on that line with the exception of the tier 6. I do agree that the Derp gun is broken on it. And that if WG want's it there, they should give the HE shells more pen, vs damage. As then he can't one shot kill tier 8 meds or tier X lights. But besides that? They could nerf the armor a tad on the hatch etc. But in turn given it an AP gun buff pen, to promote the use of that,  vs the derp all the time.
