i don't understand how some people find the tier4 good....HE gun? it does 50 hp damage on the side of a t67 ???? 2 times in a row. it does not even pen, and on better armored tanks it does 0 damage, there is no splash damage while at the same time every other Noobtube hetzer, pzIV or sherman wil oneshot you. it's nice that it has no more than 350hp so they can just delete you in one shot....Bad mobility, to slow to be a med and not enough armor to bounce anything except when Lucky.  for now i hate it. Maybe everybody already has a multy skill crew??? I don't have that luxury, i guess most do not, so 75-80% max. I just need to grind from losses. and it wil take some time :sceptic:. Frustrating....

I can't imagine how it will feel for completely new players. Arty has a good time feasting on all that cannonfodder. it's a massacre, frequently ending on top with most kills wich i find appaling for such an easymode vehicle.

ok, now i have that out of my system i am ready to go on with this grind....Thanks for listening (or not) :teethhappy:.

 

My crew started at 75% and are currently at about 88%. They're staying in the tier 4 and it's staying in my garage. :)

Most importantly who are you? But judging by that awesome Seal avatar and the wn8 I'd say you're the one they call Mr. Literal.

Fyi, I don't drug myself with an online game 12 hours a day just to get on a community and pretend to be some saucebox.

The OP is being a snowflake, perceptions are skewed because there are so many Italian tanks playing at the moment. Give it a few days and games will be back to normal and players won't be going yolo just to see what their new tanks can do.

Don't you come in here talking sense. :angry:

From what I've seen - tier for tier they definitely do not underperform - especially the lower and mid tiers, they may in fact overperform a little.

 

They are very surprisingly good in terms of protection against equal or lower tiers. We are talking about stuff like 80mm semi-decently sloped armour on tier 5, all combined with decent enough pen and reasonable mobility.

 

Hard to say if they are OP when majority of both teams are composed of them, but they definitely do not lag behind. Time will tell.

The tier 4 WOULD be op...were it not for the instant engine + track double combo you can exploit easily just by shooting either one of the front roller wheels. And you do damage even when doing that frontally. Very easy to just hit it in the front when it rounds a corner, and it is done for.

 

Also..the attributes of the HE make it mostly useful in keeping lights/tds in line, many tanks bounce/take minimal damage from the HE cause of angled surfaces. It has practically no splash so shooting under tanks doesn't do much with this one.

I have been having some fun at Tiers 3 & 4 using carefully selected tanks to take advantage of the poor darlings currently flooding the space with their new Italian crews with no skills and no equipment.

I free XPd to tier 4.  Recruited one of the girlies off the 260 missions. Activated a 200 % crew thingydoogle 

 

Been having fun. Best game 7 kills.  Playing the tank made me go unblue

auto-loaders have both pros and cons. it is well explained else-were (https://www.quora.com/Why-dont-American-and-British-tanks-have-auto-loaders-so-that-they-dont-need-another-crew-member-to-load-rounds --explains it well) it's that both the positive and negative traits have to be implemented in-game. imho only the pros i.e. the positive traits are implemented in the tanks with auto-loaders with most evidently being currently in the italian line of tanks.

I did the same but chucked a 75% crew in it and used the sixth sense for bonds thingy. First game first class and second game ace with a top gun. Seems pretty good to me :P but i was lucky and they were both tier 3-4 games.

​Ok, My opinion on it. I feel dirty... I now have a 62% WR in it, Aced it in 11 battles. I'm getting max Tier 5. (is that normal? I'm never down this low) 

 

The tank is slow, but the 40 HE rounds I carry seem to be put to good use. That's 70mm Pen with HE at tier 4.  That's 17 more pen than my Tier 5 M4/Sherman 3 ... I'm wreaking these guys...And they are all new players, While its fun for me, it cant be for them.

 

The tank is slow. But useable. the Rate of fire with the top gun with HE is nice... The poor Matilda needed a 1 Key dab, 130 HEAT as a premium round.... wow.... 

 

Gameplay is fun as hell, even going up against other P26/40s using the wrong gun or not unlocked it or just clueless.

 

OP, hmmm I dunno... but enjoyable so say the least

No, it sees tier 6 but the lower tiers are filling the match-maker as the weekend warriors start grinding the new line.

I got my 200th Battle Buddy ribbon the other day. I had to laugh as it came from a battle where I was clicking to shoot an idiot team mate just as the timer ran out.

From the receiving end, these new Italian Tier 4 tanks are shredding my PzIIJ quicker than anything else.  Once I've completed my crew training with it, I will be return it to the garage permanently.
