More to the point, slow ones, what is the general method of playing slow tanks like the TOG, Churchill and Matilda, all of the Jap Heavies, and any large Brit Tank destroyer (AT2 onwards) 

 

Also anything else that is slow and heavy.......

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Serious constructive recommendations and advice only please:D

It gives utter noobs the belief they will last longer and have better results than they typically do with the zero damage battles they average with anything quicker. With the Japanese heavies, this is certainly true, with the other slow tanks, not so much. Only terrible players and the occasional drunk players use the ultra slow, massively armored tanks, remember that. Much the same for any game, the noobs pick the big slow powerful, heavy armored warrior with the two handed war axe that can one shot while the good players use the light armored classes with the daggers that dance around the big idiot with the war axe all game long. Of course, the mages rule all but that's another topic.

 

Edit- I also like the "naked women" inclusion in the search bar, +1

Lmao, well i had to put something there to catch people eyes, maybe we should have little painting on our tanks of naked women, take the Lowe, put one on that and call it the Lioness or something:D

 

I admit to being neither drunk but maybe a noob, but I sort of like the big silly slow things, maybe it is a new fetish:D

Not necessarily true.

I'm a noob for all intents and purposes and when I'm driving a Type 5, top tier or Tier X, I use it as bait. I know TDs and SPGs will favour it as an exp and credits piñata.

 

To poke your tank over a ridgeline, especially in Prokh, it's VERY effective, more even in the Type 4. SPG drivers just keep shelling you while your team progresses on the hill and conquers both sides, since they will still benefit from such protection, if the enemy has no SHTs.

 

On some city maps, this is less effective.

Personally I would say for Jap Heavies or KV2 and TOG, get in a platoon. Dont go alone, dont get isolated.

If you're in a slow, lumbering, giant steel wall, make sure to have at least one competent player by your side to cover you from flanking fire.

Some TDs are quite slow.  (FCM Pak 40 has a top speed of 16k I think).  Resign yourself to the fact that, in every other game you will rarely even fire a shot - especially if your team is aggressive.  However, the other games ... you can rack up oodles of dmg, by just picking a good defensive position and peppering the enemy as they drive into your firing range.  Some of my highest scores have been made from a few yards of home base.

Being both a terrible player and a drunk, I am all in favour of big slow tanks with lots of armour.

Going by my recent experience on playing Churchill VII, the correct usage of this tank is to chase your team around the map and use the whole arsenal of expletives in your preferred language while all enemies die a few seconds before you get the opportunity to shoot them.

Yes, go together - but don't platoon with TOG, the TOG will never see T8 if you don't press it in a platoon.

I love(d) to play Matilda, it's not really pressing two times r and hold down left mouse button but sometimes it looks like that ... a wonderful top gun, like a stabilized automatic gun. Churchill I was long time ago and scrapped, I play very seldom Churchill III ... usually I prefer faster tanks. I think driving (not waiting) from the beginning and firing could be the key.
