This tank in a nutshell: this tank is like playing an arty as a td, an arty that would have no camo, 4 times more hitpoints and could bounce a few shots.

 

Maybe it is wrong to have a tank that has the potential to oneshoot things. I am not defending that. But... if WG decides to keep it in the game then it should make it playable. I like tds, but this thing is not worth the grind.

I'm buying it next Friday and I'm looking forward to it to be honest. Played it a lot on the test server and that thing is amazing. I don't know what you're on about honestly ? Sure, accuracy isn't the best, but the potential damage is worth the trade. Armor-wise this thing is actually decent. Sure, it's no E3, but I prefer it over the Grille 15 or the E4 any day of the week. So really, I don't see a problem with the FV215 183.

no oneshots ? but you saw that every tier besides T9 got their 1 shot tanks than again if you look at the type 4 they might have even given T9 its "1shot wonder" 

 

and if you want to compare them you might add:  twice the damage in half the reload time  with far more pen.

Oh yea, why not buffing a tank that can already ruin someone's game in one hit and has nothing to do in this game at the first place.

So you want more camo on a TD with 1750 potential alpha and armor? Take away one of them and maybe. Turret armor is rather strong, so hull down in a support role you can rack up bounces rather fast.

 

And what you make it more playable then? You get armor along with high alpha even arty is envy of. It's still highly situational. It will get an ammo load buff next patch to 20. More then enough.

I actually reinstalled the game a few days ago, bought this tank before it got removed then uninstalled again. It's a tank I'd always wanted to play but never got a chance to before the game got mega cancer. Bought it in the hopes that sometime in the future the game might go under different management and finally fix it's crapenough to make it worth playing again.

So 25 second reload, 4 seconds to aim, boom, misses!

Remember taking out an IS7 one shot from full health, about 1800 hp from the shot rest cause I set him on fire, and yes it can one shot some tanks....

Rarely take it out now, it's slow, don't even think of firing until fully aimed + a couple of seconds, then scurry back into cover although to be fair it can side scrape effectively.

I had 11 million in the bank and the only reason I didn't have it earlier was because I was waiting for it to go on sale before I quit (Only ever bought high tiers when they were on sale). Not like I was using the credits anyway.

you want to use a 183mm caliber to snap shot? XD I thought people actually think before grinding for a tank.

This tank is clearly better than many other td's, Yeah the new fv4005 may have a higher celling but this works for noobs great. If you know how to aim you will 1 shot tanks often. FFS E75 LFP, T10 lfp or badly angled, Badly angled any pike nose tanks, turret sides and sides overall + all meds unless at high angles. Outside of that you have armor that while not reliable bounces quite a lot because your gun makes people panic and a speed that isn't completely horrible.

 

It's not the tank, it's you. Looking at your t10 performance you may be trying to camp too much with it since you did way better in the grille. Play it like a support heavy.

come one dont blow it out of propostion

 

not every tank you met is full hp also you got not auto pen on the HESH so not aiming well, being RNG trolled  is pretty common

hit the side of a batchat ? shot went a bit low hit the tracks, zero damage not even tracking it  feels worht it just having wasted 8k crds 

just having a noob drive it around  will not give him 4k average dpg on it

 

its the most expensive tank to run that i own (ok pz 1c full gold could be more expensive but i dont run it that way)  and the results are rather situational

damage of the Jpz E100 is lower but besides the rather unreliable gun its damage is more reliable than the 183s damage  that might range somewhere between 200 and 2k on a hit

Always, Always fully aim your shots!

Use pudding & tea. (It's a tier X after all!)

Maybe 1 in 4 games will be  good one.

But when you get that good one!...

It is lovely! 

I will never forget the 1st time I 1  shot an E100! 

Yes there is the  side weak spot! 

But learn to side scrape in it anyway! 

If they do not hit that weak spot it is very strong in that respect! 

 

It is one of my favorite ways to blow loads of silver!

It always takes some time to learn a new tank. 

As long as you have enough silver?

Learn it. 

Cos when you get that  good game it is WOW!

 

They nerfed it a lot ages ago cos it was so OP. 

But I still love it!

 

(It's not an easy one..)

It is in no way cheap!

My load out is 7 premium hesh & 5 AP.

Part of the experience is learning to use the right ammo at the right time! 

Not easy with that reload!  

 

Good luck!

If anything this abomination should be removed BEFORE it becomes a reward tank.

They won't remove it completely. I agree it is very annoying to get one shot by it.
