This needs to stop. you know what is worse than a tomato in a type 5? 3 of them in a Type 5!

Yes, I'd totally prefer unicorns driving those things instead, too, because that would make them totally easier to fight.

> mfw one did 5,3k and the other two did 3k dmg

 

don't think it would make any difference, the Type platoon team would still win, unless the meds and tds got steamrolled on the other flank

It wouldn't make any difference. by driving a type 5 you're automatically a unicorn, for that match at least.

But the Type 5 requires skill and is a very situational tank. Just aim for those frontal weakspots and everything will be fine. Your best bet is playing the Leopard 1

Leopard 1 to balance Type 5's and TVP VTU to make Defender wallet warriors cry :justwait:

Could you post these players average damage stats in their Type5s instead of just 1 lucky game each so we can get a larger data sample. :great:

Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story.

...while I do not like the type 5 either, one of those players is not a tomato, the guy would be orange-yellow, as he is very close to the 50%

 

although I do not know his recents, so not sure if he has been like this the whole time or he has been improving.

 

TBH, they should try to find the balance between the pre-buff of the type and the post, sorta like a combo of the two.

 

for a start, they could re-change the gun's characteristics, like giving it say, a 200 pen or so AP round that does 700 dmg (so as to not take the E 100s spot) and reduce the HE to say, 980

also, they could make those angled surfaces tiger (P) ish, as in not extremely weak, but a viable weakspot if the type is not careful.

 

my two pennies

It would still be better than their performance in any regular Tier X. Just saying, the thing is undeniably broken at the moment.

You guys just don't have a good sense of humor, type 4/5 are the best memes in WOT. It doesn't care if you have armor or not, It doesn't even care if you are spotted or not, It misses for 1k damage sometimes! one big LUL :) and i just got mine today so please leave it alone for a month or two at least.

While I do agree its a stupid tank and can be annoying to play against, for the the most of the time its just easy farm so I dont mind them that much. :)

But the clearly borderline OP Leopard 1 can easily counter it by sniping it from outside of render sistance as the Type that requires alot of skill to play is terrible in open maps, right, right?!?!?!?!?

You're not supposed to pen the type 5 or a bunch of other heavies frontally! Unless you spam gold of course.

They should remove that 150mm gun.

Point in the generel direction of the enemy and do 500minimum dmg.

The tank it self is not very good. it is that 150mm gun.

Buff the standard gun instead. give it 500more dpm and it will be balanced.

This is getting old. Everyone knows that Type5 is hard to play. How about you complaining about the real issue here: those borderline OP leopard 1s running wild and causing all kinds of havoc.

And there you see the target audience for which this tank was balanced and got it's HE gun to begin with. People that can't be trusted to play heavy tanks properly by angling or be expected to learn how to aim for weakspots.

 

So Wargaming went: "Let's give this tank effectively impenetrable armour for standard ammo *AND* give it a gun that requires the least amount of aiming and will always do damage".

 

It's come to the point where I report any Type5 platoon for unsportsmanship conduct straight away especially since the "improved" MM always manages to put the Type5 platoon on one team and give the other team WZ's or IS4's.

As Cobra said. It's no longer 'Steave, the IS7 driver'. It's 'Steave, the Type 5 Heavy driver' now. This tank naturally attracts bad players, as it's just WOT on easy mode.
