Very good tank, but ... when playing tier 8s almost every game is bottom tier. Wallet warriors be warned. :)

Use to be one of my best credit makers and happy to mark, been collecting dust in garage after the meta changes, but i do believe is one of the most enjoyable tier 8, still support my opinion to buff power to weight or top speed, it is a paper tank which actually goes together with good mobility, all and all Rev is love, or at least used to be love:popcorn:

Nice Medium or at least nice gun...

 

As for the rest of the tank it's just a lel Sherman that doesn't belong in higher tiers. No armour, no speed, no anything.

 

But the way the ACPR gun belts out shots is great.

It is a good tank but:

Almost always bottom tier in tier X games.

Mm is full of high tier heavies and many games will end in 9 hits, 1 penetration.

When gun troll you this tank is master of the critical, hits and no damage.

Armor is zero.

When you get in map rotation only coridor maps and you  meet: 430, 430U, etc, then have fun.

At speed many heavies are faster than you.

 

When gun troll you, you do 0 damage.

When your team is bad you do 0 damage.

Rev is a support tank and can't carry.

Also require skill to play well.

Simply usless against tier X tanks with that 200 mm penetration cannon...

 

If you want that people buy this tank, atleast make it more useful against those 24/7 tier X battles...

Could just track them? :P Then again Ravi's rate of fire sucks so can't even do that....

 

Guess you could use HEAT and hope it's not absorbed by random bits of the chassis? :trollface:

 

But yeah I don't play much that much these days...

A really good offer this time, M4 Rev is the best bang for buck tank out of the 7k price range, cheap to buy, fun to play and a great moneymaker(390dmg with 580 creds shell cost).

Well if they just made it 30% off instead of selling it with a bloated package, then it might be a bit more interesting.

The tank is nice, but not much of a money-maker these days due to MM. It is no flanker so you have to resort to firing quite a bit of HEAT.


The gun can be absurdly troll as well. So many zero damage crit hits.

Yes i had a lot of games with only critical hits. Sometimes gun work like laser, somentimes like last garbage.

Totally! One of Ph3lan's favorites. My stats in it suck (a lot), but I learned lots about mediums playing it when I joined the office. Great fun. :)

​I thought we should use "Revolution" since it is French and resembles to "Revolution"! :)

Great tank IMO. Really fun to play, nice credit earner.

 

I stoped playing only because I got Lorr from those january boxes, plus t44100 was buffed.

Now i play those two, but probably will play Rev again in some time.

 

Yeah, there are better tanks. Like Skorpion.
But Rev is still great one.
What i love about it is APCR, gun handling and 390 amount of love you send to enemies.

 

Pen is not that big of problem IMO. I almost never used HEAT in it, because 1) HEAT sucks. 2) it flies like one of those Cromwells shells. 3) again, APCR is <3
