Seriously, tried long-range sniping and its like throwing random projectiles into space. Very trolly.

you play 10 crap battles with 0-3k dmg for one 7-8K battle that you get after the crap ones.

Follow the heavies, find hard cover... Peak out. Blast someone in the face for 90 % of his hit points... retreat, reload and repeat.

On big open maps you keep the enemy outside of the max spotting distance, but within range to balance them

 

On city maps you stay around a corner, then once the enemy has fired at your team mate you poke out, smash a shot into them, then sit around the corner again.

 

 

Sometimes you get wrecked with 0 damage because you get spotted and the enemy has an arty on their team :(

pretty much this. I've just got mine and still trying to understand it and had awful games on Prok/Malinovka but then very good games on Paris and Ensk. I don't think it's a tank/map issue that your games are wildly unpredictable; it is more of a friendly/enemy play style.

According to some players here on the forum every shot from the Shietbarn is a 1-shot kill and therefor the tank should be removed/nerfed... seems you doing it wrong and should git gud :trollface:

camp and wait until battle is almost lost then shoot 3 shots and pen 2 of them and end as top damage dealer.

That's how most play them i guess.

Well you need to select correct ammo type for each occasion, just like with Type 5.

I played it on test server and it is accurate enough for non moving targets. Btw last nigh I free XPed my way to Conway. Once I get the tank I let you know. BTW I am enjoying Conway atm and I don't see why people complain about it that much. It's not the best tank but not the worst either. It's a good one.

well i have played around 35 battles in it during last 2 days, at some point was getting really good avg score, getting dpg above 3,3k, but tank itself is so situational, that at the end of the session im exactly at the same spot where i started 3250dmg and 63% wr :D it seems like i have to quit early when i get 7 good battles in a row :D but at least its perfect for high dmg missions, managed to do alliance 1 mission for chimera as well - 30% of teams dmg and win lul.

Know that sometimes you need the AP and others.... you need to perform the secret handshake with your mouse to get HESH to work.

Just fire HESH, i try and play it like an ambush tank....granted some maps its very hard to play it like that and you end up sniping and missing everything. I strongly urge prem food on this tank...anything that helps with dispersion no matter how small. Dont be afraid to trade shots, you will generally get the better deal. 

 

With the FV i actually prefer maps like ruinberg, himmelsdorf as sniping is frustrating as hell.

Try shooting regular HE and AP only and then at least you won't get 50-80k ammo bills. And lose the tea and pudding too.

I'm using mine just like that, no premium ammo and no tea and I farm credits without a premium account.

I have a replay, where I do nearly 8k dmg without firing a single HESH...can I link it here?
