Just about to get to this tank XP wise, And quite simply, Is it worth it?. 

 

I know alot of the more oldie tanks are suffering from a pretty rough case of power creep, And obv with the addition of things like Kranvagn, Is the 50b still worth it?

 

I really love the 50120 but, Aye, Ya'll understand what im asking, Haha.

 

Cheers lads.

Definitely not worth it in the current meta.

I think 50B is still quite good. If you liked the 50 120, chances are you will also like the 50B since it's basically better in every way.

You like the 50120? I loathe that POS, and am hoping the 50B is better. At least it has some gun depression, which is destroying me with the 120.

50B is amazing. The best autoloading tier 10 heavy overall by far. Only part of it that is paper is the turret, so you can quite often bait people into shooting the hull, or if people auto aim it usually bounces. Gun is amazing. Can be used at long range if needed unlike the T57, and is still deadly in close combat because short intra clip, not as good as T57 in that regard but still 10 times better than kran.

 

Look at it like this:

 

50B - Good at long range, Good in close range, Great mobility and pretty flexible

T57 - Amazing at close range, trash at long range, Limited mobility 

Kran - Very situational, Only good when no arta and against tier 8's pretty much, can be good but only when you can use gun dep on a ridge, negatives outweigh the positives

Ok, i understand the arta bit, but why only against t8's ?

Last ranked there was a guy who got top ranks very fast in the Kranvagn ... and thinking of going for it.

Well, against tier 9s its alright, but the others just are much better pretty much. The kran is in a tough spot, especially because the long intra clip compared to the others, which means it exposes itself more to clip the target, and in tier 10 games, people have more alpha, better reloads, better pen etc, so you usually take more damage and maybe even bounce off them abit, more than you would in a tier 8 game

If you have a valid crew, it's a straight upgrade from 50-120.

it is as situational as every autoloader.

50b is fantastic tank in good hands.

 

but, if you loved 50120, no matter how good or bad you are, you will enjoy 50b lot more.
