A few times now in a British Matilda (tier 4) I have been one shot by a Hetzer using HEAT rounds. Are these still allowed?

Hetzer HEAT does 350 damage so he's only got to roll a little bit high and that's the end of you.

 

Solution: Don't get shot.

As a Matilda player with high battle count in it, why should we? The object of the game is to enjoy oneself. If that means playing a tank we enjoy, is that wrong?

It's still in the game, and it still has a 10.5cm gun it can freely use. So yes ofc it's allowed. It has 350 HEAT alpha. You have 370 HP. He high rolls a little and you're dead. Same if he high rolls with HE on your rear plate with 410 alpha. Much like the T40,  Sav m/43, Sau 40 and Stug III Auf B. They all have a 105mm gun with HEAT. All with 104 to 110mm pen on their HEAT. Or 63/65 with AP that's also 350 alpha.

No, all HEAT users will be banned in the next fair play ban wave. That one will happen as soon as they are done with the chat bans!

 

Edit: I miss my Hetzer BTW!

Having played nearly 12.000 games, is it really that much of a challenge to figure this out yourself? At 350 average damage, the maximum damage is equal to 350 * 1,25 = 437 (rounded). So yes, it is impossible. And since this is all basic game play at work, why wouldn't it be allowed?

Well that's what you get for being a sealclubber in a slow tank. And yes it's possible just fine. If he didn't already wreck you with HEAT,he will use HE on the next shot,so you can enjoy that too. :)

Well low tiers are almost completely under the might of the German panzers: P.38H, Pz.1C, Hetzer. only at tier 5 does the KV-1 challenge the Pz4H and copies that power to the KV-2. After that the low tier German bias is lost.

Are you the *bad word* in a Hetzer who sniped my Matilda's cupola from 400m and one shot me with an AP round a few months ago?

T-34 with high DPM gun is not weak by any means.

Type T-34 is better so I am going to call my chinese bias right here.
