I have tested the new 3.2k dpm Caernarvon. 

That tank is just sick.

 

You have insane dpm.

You have a turret that bounce stuff.

You have 10 degrees of gun depression.

And the gun handles well with decent accuracy.

And it isn't even slow.

 

Balanced,  da.

Didn't everyone ask WG to make premiums worse than standard tanks? :bajan:

 

Caern is OP af now, but it's still not played by anyone because "hurr durr lower plate is 70mm hurr durr i cant be bothered to hide it"

When all the tank needed was a dpm buff, they decided to buff armour and alpha while MASSIVELY buffing the dpm.

WG can into balancing tanks.

Inb4 some WG staff pleb walks into this thread and says "Ah but other regions are saying its really weak, and at the moment we don't have the data to prove or disprove this"

My point is people claim the T26E5 is OP and ignore tanks like the caernarvon now. Im not talking about any tank being a premium or premiums being weaker than regular or whatever.

Caern can't be OP as its not a premium :trollface:

The caernarvon is just stupidly broken...that dpm should not even be in the sweetest dreams of a tier 8 heavy...nevermind an actual thing.

Yeah duh of course it is. Why would anyone think that WG can buff a tank without turning it into destroyer of worlds. We shouldn't even be surprised at this point.

The MoE requirements for Caern are pretty insane at the moment. T26E5 still has better armor though. Better lower plate and no real turret weakspots. Same gun depression, both have 10 degrees.

 

Also if you want laughs... try Conq with the Caern gun... 3k DPM without rammer or food...

It's really nice, and hull down it is fun but - jagtiger (t9) just eats through turret  and arty loves you, hull down you can really have fun but the patriot is still more comfortable , mind you my crew is still training skill 2 as I drunken free xp my way to tier 8

 

face hugging is3 is nice , but when you need to press 2 this tank costs like a t10 soviet medium 

 

so as usual , it may be op in the hands of some people here but for the average it's really nice but has its downsides - balance

Oh, dear, I smell a T110E5 scenario coming up on the british line. Kids whining because they can't handle it (slow as crap, but flanking is too hard, you see), so WG should renerf it back to it's useless state like they did with the E5.

 

Btw, I loved the new Caernarvon, and let's face it, the gun was retardedly useless as it rolled around 200 about 80% of the time, and sometimes even lower and the tank was unreasonably slow for the paper armor it used to have. I'd say it's balanced now, maybe lower the RoF a bit, but whiners don't deserve anymore nerfs.

 

OP against complete morons, easy picking for not complete morons.
