Have you played the FV4005? 80% of the time it misses or hits a track, doing 600-700 damage at most for a 30s reload. Even then, most of the times it will be 3-4 shot by HE shells, as it's turret is pretty much the most alluring target in the game.

 

Granted, it does suck when you get deleted the one time the FV4005 actually works.

That turret is at most 203mm thick. The turret ring is 155 almost flat. And you have 200mm pen HESH.

Im not complaining about the armor i just find it funny that we still have these kind of guns in the game.

Pen on the HESH rounds is approx 230-235mm.

It's indeed a memegun. But it's somehow more balanced than type5, maus or the incoming soviet tanks, at least IMO. :)

FV4005 is for the all in poker players. Everything else is for the mortgage hedge funders..

Typical 183 gameplay;

 

Game 1.

Everything dies long before it gets anywhere near you. Fire gun once in end game to delete arty. 500dmg. GG

 

Game 2.

Spotted leaving spawn by yolo scout on tiny map, insta-focus, back to garage 

 

Game 3.

Delete an AMX 105 with an unaimed snapshot. Miss the next five fully aimed shots because 183. Overmatch roof on 110E3 for full HP

 

Game 4.

Fire seven shots, miss every one.

 

repeat until credits run out, or you lose any form of sanity

I have and it really doesnt miss much, you hit most of your shots as you jut need to hit a tank to do dmg. The gun handling really isnt that bad for such a big gun. I think prob 2/3s of my HESH shells pen, if I dont think my hesh is going to pen I load HE and still [edited]you up for 1150 dmg.

Not to mention mine has a 23s reload, not 30s.

Mmmhmm, just played it and noticed the 23s too. Used food for it though.

My original exaggeration aside, it's still a gambling tank.

Actually kind of surprised how little the FV4005 and 183s annoy me.

That's despite having tried them and knowing well how easy they can be to play (despite being prone to RNGesus and 'roflstomps' in either direction). That's of course just my experience, but it's not that often they manage to get a real hit in from what I remember - and I believe I would.

Agreed, the incoming soviet tanks NEED a nerf, or WoT will be a hell to play from tier V upwards.

Doesn't really need nerfing, more like adjusting. It doesn't overperform as it is now.

There is an argument whether these tanks are simply too extreme in their game play. 

 

It seems to be the way of things now and I'm not sure how good that is for the game as a whole to be honest. 

 

The TD meta is coming (might be here) I think.
