Currently trying to power grind through the Black Prince. I know it's garbage, I know I'm not much better but some times you just have to laugh at this game. Thankfully I've only come across this situation once so far but you know you lot can have a laugh with me. 

 

Look at this and enjoy. This is using premium ammo too.

Now I fully appreciate that any Tier 7 tank should struggle against a Tier 9 tank. And that should be the same across all tiers but you should have a chance. I've no problem with having to use premium ammo in that situation either but at least give me something to shoot at.

You have to flank it or call chi-ri in to help. Failing that find a Leopard...

Did I mention that the Type 4 is faster? Anyway in case anyone says Yes I should try to predict where the Type 4 will go and play elsewhere on the map but well he did just drive right up the middle killing everything in front of him on the way and then capped out. 

 

I do find this funny so I started looking. Guess what?

Regarding the giggles .... it's actually quite likely that large quantities of giggling-inducing substances have been consumed by WGs dev team prior to said 'balancing'... so no wonder! :facepalm:

I like the part most, where Black Prince has 171mm pen with a 150 damage gun.

 

And IS has 175mm with a 390 alpha gun and actually also better DPM. Over twice the alpha, and still more DPM.

 

That's balance, bois.

Indeed. It's quite pathetic really. So pathetic its funny.

Not so easy as you need at least 2 shots to blow the tracks off a Type 4, in fact most heavies with your 150 alpha. 

 

All of this while he blats you in the face for 500hp or whatever without having to aim. 

 

I agree the principle is right though and something I try to do as often as possible in all tanks to be honest. Just to get the assistance damage and stuff. 

 

Here's another laugh. Played Firey Salient earlier. I run the BP with optics and got 2300 spotting. :teethhappy:

Another one. 

 

2 ways to look at it I guess. Is the penetration on the BP premium ammo too low or is the armour on the VK100.01 too thick.
