Am I being the only one or that Italian tanks are too overpowered?

Hang on a minute ... :unsure: ... YOU FILTHY TEAM-KILLER!!! :angry:

I turned Blue yesterday.

Was firing my autocannon on full auto to kill the last enemy tank, (Italian tier 4 - see, this post is on topic) and a light tank runs through my fire, takes just two hits and dies.

Luckily the enemy died just before his wreck blocked my shells.

It's my second time blue, ever. 

First time was falling on an ally when they pushed the enemy out from under my jump.

Game decided to not allow me to drive off him, then banned me for the continuous team damage for being sat on his head. 

My banned tank then crushed the ally to death.

I quite liked the Tier 2 and may revert to it as a keeper.

 

At tier 3, the M15/40 looks okay on paper, but my 22% win rate in it suggests there is some problem, either with the tank or with what I am doing with it.

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. :)

 

​Yeah, about the same now as you state, but still....sucks to play new tank line because of that. main problem i think is being outspotted by everything in the enemy team, apart from people doing the same grind. i do run binocs and cammo but that does not help when on the move. So camping is once again promoted. Only problem is that i am not a camper and so i die a lot when trying to do something useful. more often than not, i only get 1 or two shots of damage before i am dead. ( the rest miss or bounce :) ). not a pleasant grind.

my final scores in the P26/40 some components bought with free xp though and have run personal reserves for 200%xp or it would take a lot more battles. I needed 36 battles this way before unlocking the tier 5

WR 47%, average XP: 251 average damage: 305.

awesome scores.:hiding:

I even got more average damage and xp in the tier 3 M15/42.

Now i have got the tier V P.43 and played 11 battles in it until now:

average damage 193, average exp 195 (some matches using an not upgraded gun did not help of course, but you have to try and get some xp first)

This will be really frustrating and it's been in tier 7 matches right form the start. With the captain now being 82% it has a viewrange of 304m, and that is the main problem.

grinding it is, until I find a tier worth keeping. for now I did not like anything so I won't be keeping them.

small update on my P.43 progress ( if you can call it that).

another 10 battles played for a total of 21. WR 24% it took me 9 losses and finally 1 victory...wasted one hour of personal reserves and had to activate new ones just to get to the first victory. only once the team could carry me.

average xp 174 average damage 204. top engine now, but still no speed to be a medium. also second turret unlocked now. viewrange up to 324m. commander at 84%.

i almost started to throw stuff around out of frustration. time to go to bed....tomorrow the soap continues as i try to get the top gun unlocked. fun fun fun.

p.s. I also don't use easymode ammo.

Little update.

Today it ook 8 games to get one victory. total for P.43 now 29 battles WR 21% also some real luck with my teams :( during this p43 grind.....not.

average XP 187

average damage 218

That was a nice increase in usefulness. 

Finally got the top gun unlocked now so it must clearly be better now….we will see.

Don't you prefer the 2nd gun? The top gun has only marginally better pen with its normal shell, at the cost of that great 70mm pen HE shell...

 

You may not like easymode ammo, but right now it seems to me you're torturing yourself needlessly. Don't burn yourself out...

I concur wholly. I'm doing the Top of the Tree thing and starting out an SU-85 with a new 80% crew is pure horror. Especially since I hate camping and this tank can't do anything else. But that's what you gotta do for an SU-100M1 and being able to get into people's face...

 

Back on topic, I'm also on the Italian grind, since I got a Progetto. I free XP'd my way to tier V and am now on the P.43, having unlocked all of its modules. I could not stomach the lack of 6th sense and for the first time, used bonds to complete SPG-15 for the T-55A, earning myself a female Italian commander: 100% primary qualification and Sixth sense make all the difference. I would recommend that approach to anyone. Especially since in the Progetto, the commander also functions as radio operator, making a free skill extra valuable.

 

I do like the P.43 (44% winrate), much more than the SU-85 (56% winrate, there's wot for you). Some armor, reasonably gun handling for that tier (I went with the gun handling skills, not camo or repairs), and in between its good premium and HE shells for the 2nd gun, I can always find something useful to do.
