If you have a T-54 and Centurion Action X in your garage would you be so kind as to post a string of replays in them so I can see what you do in them? Good and bad games, I don't mind.

Why is that, you ask? Well, 1) I suck in the T-54 and would like to know what I should be doing and 2) I was doing well in the AX when I got it but now my DPG and win rate is crashing, so again, I'd like to see what the fancy players are doing in it.

 

Yes, yes, I can find videos on Youtube and download replays from WoT, but those are either epic games where everything fell in to place or its a player such as myself (Average Joe) that had that one good game where he Aced a tank and then sucks the rest of the time.

I agree that seeking games on YouTube or replay sites just mostly gets the ones where everything fell in place (total tomatoes on enemy side, mostly tomatoes except for hero on own team side, etc.).

 

You have to watch streams and stream recordings but there you have no guarantee what tank will be played.

I don't have any replays since I 3 marked mine a while ago. You should look for 3 marking sessions on Youtube. Filter results by length, etc.

 

Let me know if you need more, I can dig out stuff by Russian unicums.

Those are my Cent AX replays from this month since the patch aside 2 where I must have left the game early.

LEL OP you've found my achilles heal

 

I can't play the CAX to save my [edited]as it just, for some reason, does not suit my old age.

 

Then we have the T-54 debacle, 439 games and no Ace. Yet on my alt with very similar stats i aced it 7 times.

 

What advice i can give you is this: if you're struggling with one particular tank; try another. TBH i struggle to do well in any tier 10 med other than the BC. BUT at tier 9 i do well in them all. Again why do i find 9 and 10 so different?? no idea

IIRC Shish from FAME loves the Cent AX, so might be worth looking at his youtube/twitch games, plus Anfield usually has whole 3 mark sessions for tanks on his twitch/youtube which will include the bad games.

I'm far from Blue/Unicum but I did have some baller games in the T-54 and CAX lately. Two examples (one, two), of which I don't know every single detail. I do know the T-54 game was a bit odd considering I spent the last half of the game on the same spot hoping my armor would hold up (which it didn't, but it was 4vs1 at a certain moment). 

 

Both tanks in short:

T-54 (220 pen gun): not special in DPM anymore, okay damage, okay pen, excellent HEAT pen, armor is good enough, fast enough, beast when top tier, sometimes mediocre when bottom tier.

Centurion AX: good DPM, good damage, great pen, good turret armor, terribad hull armor, fast, accurate.

You can also use the WoTReplays site to search for any replays by tank and select other options like Ace Tanker.

One of them had a video as well.

It's nicknamed HEAT-54 for a reason ;)

The Cent AX turret is a lot lot better than it was as well, so that opens you up to being a bit more aggressive in hull down spots. 

 

Sadly the Cent AX buffs and M48 buffs have all but obsoleted the STB-1, they have better turrets, the Cent AX is arguably more mobile than the STB-1, both have less paper hulls (more sidescrape ability, less HE pens from arty etc.) and both have better gun handling than it, which largely negates the STB-1s DPM advantage.

Cant comment on action x, as i never bothered to go beyond centurion I, but have just started the grind towards obj 140, im using the buffed gun with better ap pen(d54), for me the start with it wasnt great either, lost my first 7 games in it lol. I cant really afford to play it as much as i would like at the moment, because i have some grinds still going on and even standard shells are expensive as fek on it. If u are willing to spam full HEAT, go for the original t54s gun with high dpm, cause u know even if gun dispersion and aim time has been nerfed, its russian, so it doesnt matter anyway. What to do with it? In my opionion, take agressive hulldown positions, face hugh, sidehug enemy tanks and make fools of them, u can sidescrape with it as well. But one thing is for sure, dont ever sit still, your cupolas on top of turret are still weak and easy to hit, dont rely on hull armor, as most tank u will meet are going to pen it without much difficulty. this is definitelly not a tank for camping a bush, its a bully and it should be played as one.

I love my cent ax and it's my first and only tier 10 3 marked so far. I have no replays but we can platoon with TS. Or I can Just play a few games and post tho there are better players who already have videos on youtube.

People joke about the T-54 being called "HEAT-54", but fact of the matter is - everyone I know and played with, never carries more then 18 HEAT shells in that tank. Myself only has 15 and I rarely have to tap the "2" key. Now, with the "improved pen" gun, which is more accurate and has better aim time, the need to go HEAT with that tank is almost completely gone. Pretty decent mid-range sniper with sturdy turret. Shame about the -5 degrees of gun depression, but I like my 121, so I can make due with.

I never really liked the CAX. Always preferred the old FV 4202 (105) when it was a Tier 10. I miss the Premium HESH mechanic of wrecking Bat Chats for 500+ a shot. But it's an alright tank. Better then the Leopard 1, coz it has some armor. And better then the STB-1 because the gun actually can hit stuff. No idea how it compares to the AMX 30B, but from what I've heard, the new frenchie is closer to the japanese in terms of accuracy. Just try to find locations where you can use your gun depression, or stay at distance and snipe away until the mid game point.
