Hi all, 

 

Half drunk or maybe fully, not sure. But I noticed during an earlier session that the English emblem on the British tanks looks though it was applied by a 3 year old with crayons or possible some lazy git with a small paint roller. Any reason for that? I'm looking for provocative answers btw. Such as the Russian game devs take a dislike to Brits up until recently have made a mockery of British tanks that in reality would have comfortably demolished the massed produced shite coming out of the Soviet block factories so as a payback, they make their game tanks God like the had, for a long time, the British tanks a complete joke in this game performance wise further helped with the English emblem applied with children's face paint. The game devs are basically calling you Brits a pack of morons through obvious digital actions, what you gonna do about it?(stirs the pot)

We don't bother to go around saying how marvellous we are, everyone knows that.

Most British low tier tanks are incredibly good.  I got 4 wins 0 losses today in my Alecto without even breaking a sweat.  Did 1300 damage in one +2 game.

you just cant be real.

 

 

CAX is great all arounder. Centurions are quite nice after the buff, with great turret armor.

SQ. Conqueror. Caernavron. all 3 borderline OP.

FV4005 <3

badger and tortoise are bad tanks?  weak armor and useless guns?

fv215b for a long time widely used ESL and CW tank. fantastic tank in good hands.

 

cgc for years best artilery and by far most used in cw sh battles.

 

the only bad one is deathstar. but is still f deathstar!

I suppose you could have the symbol painted on in a neat cold corporate fashion. But it terms of a signifier the lose brushwork does more resemble the face painting associated with tribes and football fans, and which in the context of a game about killing other players seems a rather more appropriate form of symbolism.

Probably because IRL it was exactly that.

At least they got the colours right... The Belgian flag (Black / Yellow / Red), once you plastered it on a tank, gets a dark blue band instead of the black it is supposed to be, making it resemble the romanian flag. Had people mistake me for Romanian in the game due to it.

It’s not a flag at all it is the RAC (Royal Armoured Corp) flash.

Notice how many world leaders like to wear a little pin badge with their national flag on?  Notice how the English know where they cone from.  Apart from so called football "fans" that feel the need to scrawl the name England across either the Union flag or George cross.

 

As to the tank markings.  They are applied with paint.  The game tries to simulate this.

Not to mention it’s not even the English flag/emblem.

Lol! reminds of Wimbledon in tennis when Andy Murray wins he's British but if he sucks he's Scottish.

 

The British firefly, now that's it's fully upgraded, is actually a really nice tank, see, 9 kills just a minute ago vs a trashy noobs... and with trashy noobs lol. Pity my team were not even worse I think I could have killed all 15 alone, now THAT would have been special!

Still... would we call the Sherman derived tanks British? even if they have the face paint emblem on them :)

SQ. Conqueror. Caernavron. all 3 borderline OP.

All listed tanks got buffs only recently and the 20 pounder will never make brit tanks good. no matter how much turret armor you slap on the front. the aimtime and dpm is too dam low, with not even that good pen for the downsides it has, the hulls are massive and paper even when using 10 gundep.

 

CAX is not competative in todays random meta, Centurions are all bad due to dpm/aimtime/alpha 20 pounders. Cearn only got that 32 pounder recently and i still dont see them around, because black prince is SO BAD nobody wants to grind it.

 

Sqonc/Conq was overbuffed to be hulldown free exp kings, FV *edited* is a broken disgusting tank that should never have seen daylight. badger/tort are "good" yes, but they are so boring and annoying to play, havent seen many of them, plus the LFP of Badger everyone gold spams and withut a hill its useless.

 

FV215b is not competative in randoms.

 

Arty is Arty....

 

The majority is Random battles, nobody cares about CW SH battles, literally nobody.
