I don't get the arty clip.. He got splashed and he fired right after that. How is that equivalent to using a repair kit or a med kit? Could be he fired that shot 20 meters wide, could be he didn't have a gunner or gun damaged which means the splash he received didn't affect his aim... He didn't have to use a repair kit to fire his gun.

 

Also that 140 just didn't know where to shoot the 257. Yea I think those sides are stupid, but when you're circling him that close u gotta get the flat part of the beak nose or the rear. The sides are stupid and we all know it, there are a million threads about it already.

Interesting how a tank with a pike nose with less than 200 mm LFP, and less than 200 mm UFP if angled, 2 cupolas with less than 200 mm and a 30 mm roof, is now a super heavy....

 

When I drive one, no one has problems penning it. Actually its so OP that face hugging a Lowe, you will end up doing 0 damage, while he has no problems penning you....

 

Its not a bad tank,very far from it, but not because of its armor.

Have you noticed, whenever WG release an update & your amongst the early birds to have it updated & you start playing. You will notice your ability to out perform lights & meds vastly jumps up for the first few hours. Then like magic, everyone starts hitting your weak spots, at distance on the move. 

Also, the Obj 257 is an idiot proof tank. Its front armour & side armour are stupidly high. Unless he's coming at you in reverse, your left wasting your ammo. Of course, as soon as you switch to premium ammo. You start dealing damage. Thus the sole reason for these tanks. To make you use premium ammo or lose!

The arty clip is just dumb. 

 

257's got some weird-[edited]armor, but here it's evident what is going on: The 257 is on a slope - which means his 'boat hull' is (autobounce?) angled. On flat ground you can easily pen it side-on. Unlike the IS tanks, the 257 doesn't have a 'space armor skirt', i.e. the trolly part is the lower are, not the upper one. Capiche?

I think you are confusing the Maus with the 257.... 257 is the one with a 30 mm roof, and less than 200 mm lfp.... which means that all tier 8 tanks will pen you without gold... and all the +120mm guns will overmatch your roof

But that doesn't say all that much about the 257 as the IS-7 I hugged had the same problem. You see the Löwe is cool and has girth. It stand like elephant and shoot down on puny cupola. I think it's more of a drivers issue.

Simply watch this video: https://www.youtube....h?v=l61hLPxrN24 (40sec)

1st part of this video: the enemy M53 has simply inhuman reactions, ehh I mean a good mod for auto use of first aid kit and repair kit. Now I will definately be able to finish my arty missions...

 

How so? It don't even say you did anything to it. Be it crew or track. So all I did see was you doing damage to enemy arty. I don't know how you did see he had a crew down and got it back up again in a split second. As all he did was stand there. I would like to know how you know he cheated there. Cus that clips shows only you hitting it. Nothing more.

2nd part of this video: shows the very balanced obj257... jeah I fail there so hard, I don't know where to shoot at... and NO I didn't use "auto aim" which is for bad players imo. If you don't believe me, I can upload the whole replay.

 

It's OP and broken for the very same reason shown in your video. Everyone goes for the strongest part of the tank. When his easy to pen side armor for your gun is 30 cm higher up. Why aim there if you KNOW you can't pen it there vs the upper side armor that is 30 degrees, and not even 180mm effective.

Idiot proof? Besides that lower plate as some angles. The Hull is as easy to deal with head on as the IS-3. And like the IS-3. It has the auto pen plate above the gun. Type 4 derp there did 1K damage each time. As that's the first tank I played today to troll those 257's. It's only idiot proof because everyone thinks it's strong head on, and weak at the side still. I'll give it a week or so before most starts to notice.

Nothing strange in arty clip. You splashed him, did damage then he shot. So?

 

For 257, lower sides are ridiculous, but your second shot was well aimed, not autoaim. So the question is, why did you aim where you APCR have less chance to pen and will likely bounce when you could aim at his flat upper sides?

you srsly don't get the first arty clip? He reacts INSTANTLY after he gets stunned, although he was aiming at an ally, so he was focused on sth else, he INSTANTLY used the med kit to get rid of the stun. And he is a 48% player, I am 100% sure he has not the skills to react THAT fast!

 

And srsly [edited]off about I don't know how to shoot an Obj257.. all these shots were clean on 90° and didnt pen him, although they had to go through...
