I've been playing conway lately and really that tank is full paper...only good thing about it is gun...nothing more really...I think it would be nice to at least have stronger front of the turret to at least go hull down....It has nothing really good about it right now...since is very tall...everything can spot u even arty....so it is really annoying...It would be good if was like charioteer I mean in size at least...but come on it is so frustrating to play this tank knowing that you will be penned every single time even from tier VII.....

Tbh... I'm amazed on how many bounces I get on that turret on a ridge line, or head on.  Flat on not always. But at a slight angle on a ridge line since the mantle is more or less a bent plate as is. It works more often then I expect. Last match I went the HT line on El Halluf vs tier 9 and 8 HT's. Got hit by 5 HT's. Bounced 3 of them. Inc the 130 from the WZ-111 1-4

 

Then again as you said. It's a paper tank, not an assault TD line like the other line is. So IMO it's just enough to save it a few times, and nothing more. It's not meant to be a T29 hull down bouncing everything.

lets buff the FV4005 turret so that can go hull down too then!

 

Yes the tank is pretty much paper, like the whole of that line, thats the play style, glass cannons, if you wanted armour then go down the 183 line, Atleast until its replaced

I suppose you should have tried it back when the gun depression and elevation weren't there, perhaps you'd be more grateful it can be played at all now.

Yes lets buff it so it can crap 600 damage on everything using autoaim without being able to penetrate it back...much balance.

Or perhaps you should check which tankline offers what you seek? And go for that one? US turret TD line has nice armor & punchy guns & can hulldown.

The Conway line is a glasscannon line, so no armor, but big punches.

[Insert tank name] has weak turret, let's give it turret armor and -10 gun depression, so it can be hull down fighter.

Buff, Buff, buff

Buff everything monthly so every player has something op...

I'm getting sick of that buffing carousel.

Please balance game and tanks properly first!!!

While we're at it....My Skorpion G gets penned by every HE shell in the game. Lets buff the turret to 200mm and give it a roof, that way it can hull down better.

 

Also I want it to have the Borsig 15cm cannon, but obviously more accurate and much better ROF (like 11 second reload stock?) that way it can be more effective at crapping on tier X tanks...

you all didn't get my point...it's a big tank...with amazing gun and now "buffed" gun depression...didn't played it before the buff so I don't know how it was...but tank is really tall...and camo isn't that great so you get spotted really easily...the whole line is kinda paper I know that...I love charioteer...but this tank is kinda good but it gives more frustration of just being big...either to give it at least 30% camo rating when stationary it would be great...this way like it's right now....you are not possible to "camp" or to go brawl or actually do anything...you will be mostly outplayed...arty always shot at it so kinda boring to play from that perspective....there is still no logic that gun 120mm is heavier then 139 one....no logic at all...

Skorpion G is big, and has worse camo.

 

We get your point, it's just ill thought out and smacks of "I suck in a tank therefore it needs buffing"

 

30% CAMO?!?! you want it to hide like a LT?

 

You realise camo rating in WoT is almost exclusively based on the size of the tank?

 

And since when has the caliber of gun been in any form associated with weight? Gun caliber is only related to the size of the barrel bore. So in actual fact, 2 guns of identical length, with identicle width, with identical parts, but one of 120mm and one 139mm bore the 120mm would indeed weigh more.

30% camo when you have everything like perks,paint job and etc.....and no I don't suck at that tank at all...

Why does EVERYTHING need armor buffs... For the last 4 patches tank lines or specific tanks have gotten massive armor buffs.. but apperently that not enough.

WG already buffed the gun depression to 10 degrees and gave the option for a bigger gun. Conway does not have to become the next FOTM tank. Looking forward to play it, tbh.

I'd prefer if it had it's name changed tbh. Every time I see a Conway in a battle this happens.
