The British artillery line is, to date, my favorite, but seems that's about to change.

Win or lose, I'm still having fun with the Bishop, the FV304, and the CrusaderSP,

but this tier8 piece of garbage called FV207 brings me nothing but frustration.

 

When I had the misfortune to stumble upon it, I gave the title of the worst artillery

piece to the Soviet SU-122A, but seems this thing surpasses it by far in that regard.

Ever since I started grinding the FV207  I'm constantly bleeding credits, and most

of the time I rack more assist and stun damage than actual damage on enemies,

irrelevant of the gun I'm using on it. The damage output on this thing seems to be

purely random, irrelevant of which target I hit. Not to mention, I managed to land

direct shots on light tanks two tiers lower than me on several occasions, but

never managed to one-shot them.

 

At least grinding the SU-122A is optional, but this garbage is mandatory in order

to reach the ConquerorGC... and to make things worse, if appearance is to be

believed, the FV3805 looks like the same piece of trash just upped one tier.

 

Is this really what these two... things... are intended to be? Nothing more than

just padding that has to be endured in order to reach the fabled ConquerorGC?

I recently re-added the FV207 to my garage simply because I had a British arty crew sitting idle in my garage and I couldn't make myself choose the Crusader SP.  I agree with you, it is in the same league as the SU-122A in terms of frustration.  I think the SU is the worst because of its sssssllllllllloooooooooooooooooowwwww aim time and overall awful gun handling in general. The FV207 pre 9.18 had AP shells that were very sweet.  It still wasn't very good at tier 8, but better than it is now.

 

I actually enjoy playing the FV3805.  With its top gun and everything else top, it is pretty good in my opinion.

@Darth_Clicker

Oh damn, I totally forgot that I played the SU-122A pre-nerf, I guess

that thing is somehow even worse now. Since I'm not in a mood to

torture myself and retry that thing, I'll rather retract my previous

statement, so the FV207 gets away with being the second-worst

artillery piece I played to date.

 

@uglycousin

Since I'm more of a supportive player I tend to avoid mediums and heavies.

I only have the ones most clans demand for skirmishes, Cromwell, VK3601,

T-150, KV-2... the usual stuff. I prefer using artillery and TDs for fire support,

light tanks for spotting.

Fv207 is good arty. ConquerorGC is not good arty :D is better play with first gun. You can be around 20 sec reload.
