i match your FCM and raise you a JT88.

 

Who doesn't want a tank with no turret, no mobility AND a useless gun (the DPM is ok, but 200 pen and 240 alpha is a joke and 88 mm doesn't 3x overmach anything relevant)

I fondly remember rageselling it. Might be tempted to buy it again just to get that feeling back.

I have it, it sucks, I am waiting for a better buff to it.

 

Don't buy it.

 

Edit: I meant both tanks. They both suck. :P

Erm, is that a trick question? :)

The tier 9 Jagdtiger is actually decent when fully pimped. Get that one instead.

Remounted equipment to have another go at it last week.  Too many games where the gun just failed to perform, spunking shots wide from point blank range, bouncing off things it shouldn't, constant tier IX battles without any tier VIIs, and too many fail teams; equipment stripped out again.  Just a crappy tank in dire need of a buff.

FCM is so bad it's kind of fun. I mean, doing 1k damage in it feels fine. That's about what it's capable of anyways.

It would be decent if it got easier matchmaking,maps weren't so 'corridory' and if the gun had stayed relevant. Now it's just a bad T8 medium with questionable relevancy towards crew training.

You have to compare it with the right Tank to make it look good

That's the Trick

The 88 makes most tanks look good. Not seeing T10 is a nice feature for relaxing, anyways. You're never important in a battle, but strong enough to  get something done.
Since credits gain isn't directly related to damage, it's not a bad way to waste a few minutes while your primary creditshitter is in battle. It's nice to not care about stats...

Trah level premium tank and overpriced on top. Classic Wargaming.

With the MM the way it is, I wouldn't accept it if it was free. Tier 8 is just cannon fodder.

Haven't taken my fcm out in well over a year. Don't think it will see the light of day again any time soon.....

I like the FCM a lot. Good mobility and very dependable gun. Better yet, it sees no T10 and when I played it this week I saw more T8 battles than T9.

Last time I took my FCM out I discovered a Type 4 unexpectedly and ate a premium HE round pen through the side (going past some stupid alleyway he was camped in for no reason whatsoever). It hasn't been out since.
