WG proves that they can't even balance two tanks properly. Stein has worse DPM and worse turret placement - it literally has to go side-on to engage both guns.

 

How can they allow such imbalance to exist in the game and NO, STEIN IS NOT OP BECAUSE IT HAS AUTOLOADER. 

 

...time to go bot some PVP.

I think there's more to that than someone's incompetence. Now, this whole event is clearly a test of multi-turreted tanks. Perhaps in the future we will see some of these unique beasts in the game. As for Stein, it seems to me it's been put in the event for purpose, to see how BADLY will it perform. In other words, I believe devs wanted to see if there is any point of even considering implementing multi-turreted tanks with such inefficient turret placement. So it was never a question which tank is better but whether Stein is performing good enough to even bother going any further or is it a dead end.

 

Perhaps if the rear gun was fully automated, with a hotkey to turn it on and off (if ever implemented, for concealment reasons or ammo saving) then it might be kind of useful. Something like rear gunner in planes. But with manual aiming? No, it's not gonna work.

Stein is in fact .... quite good.

Problem is Franken is a mix between td and a heavy tank. Where Stain is in fact a mix of medium and light tank. Get in close and circle your target and watch it melt whit no chance of returning fire.

 

That been said - its not very good vs the Leviathan.

1 vs 1 is not common enough and if it happens it's in very a confined space, making it difficult to pull off. You're far more likely to get destroyed by your enemy's team mates or get tracked while trying to close the distance.

 

It must be funny and rewarding when pulled off successfully though. I give you that.

I would suggest you stick to the side of the map, or find a place where a bunch of tanks are dueling. You'll have no trouble flanking them and getting behind them.

Yeah, I've noticed that the north of the map is often neglected and can be used to sneak up on the enemies. It's still situational and works less often than methodical sidescraping in the Franken.

Your sarcasm is consistent with real life average people. I cannot be expected to see this as humour. In fact, I might think you're German at this point. Or Danish. Which is worse.

Reverse sidescraping whit that thing is quite good. As the forward turret appears to be able to rotate quite a lot more then the rear one. As added bonus the armor on that thing is mostly the same on all sides.

At least if you know how to play the Stein you will be okay when the Char-2C is introduced into the game
