If you want to know what a WGCC thinks of the AX, then check out Salty Jedi as he gives his thoughts on the Caernarvon AX tank and the missions, think it is pretty fair and balanced.

 

(20k daily grind for most, is achievable whilst perhaps not fun or actually worth it given the current status of the tank - that said the rewards for each stage is nice)

 

btw his Monthly Bonus Code will be announced at 16:00 UK time tomorrow folks.......

Not a bad watch, seems like a nice and honest guy. Now I do want it and am going to grind it out but that point about its profitability is a bit of a turn-off. Just a crew trainer it is, then.

The fact that the 20 pdr shells costs 2.7 times the cost of a 90 mm (Patriot, FCM), while dealing less damage, doesn't help with credit making.

 

Also with this rate of fire you are more likely to spam those even if the shot is questionable.

20-pdr was always problematic gun due to it's low alpha and high shell price. People really dislike grinding the Centurion Mk. 1 because of that. That gun needs it's economics reworked. I don't mind paying the extra for the pen, but it deserves better credits per damage return. If you compare the gun to the JagdTiger 8.8 or the M4A1 Ravioli, it doesn't even comes close. The JT88 - 240 alpha with 203mm penetration at a cost of 252 credits per shell. M4A1 Ravioli - 390 alpha with 200mm penetration at a cost of 580 credits per shot. The 20-pdr - 680 credits per shell for 230 alpha and 226mm penetration.

 

The problem is clear to me, and it has been for everyone that had to grind thru the high-end Tier VIII/IX tanks without premium account. It sure makes you feel like the T-54 is actually profitable tank with it's 1,230 credits per shell cost, because you simply get more out of them. But with the 20-pdr - nah, you go broke bro.

I have been complaining *edited* for a long time now. 20 pounders need there shell cost fixing. but WG just love pumping out 20 pounder tanks and not fixing the god dam shell price. its disgusting.

 

Edit: WG said along time ago that the shell cost was so stupidly high coz the pen was higher than most mediums. well if thats the case why does UDES only cost 1.1k a shell with 288 base pen?

Yes I agree the shell cost for 20 pounders are a disgrace. It is rediculous that they cost what they do particularly for the lowly alpha.
