I thought the same of the Super-Conq and unfortunately invoked the wrath of the RNG god of doom and from that day forward all was the underpants of doom :(

7/1 has the blessing of T IX MM. AX doesn't. AX is one of the better T9 MTs but it's not great by any means. And it gets screwed by MM a lot. In fact in this game, a lot of T IXs are better than tier T X tier for tier.

Btw I also love my own 7/1.

I hated it at first, just seemed like an up tiered Centurion 1, which i did actually enjoy. Now its like a completely different tank; more agile, better gun handling, better mobility, better armour and all round versatile. Even bounced a UDES 15 firing HEAT on my side :trollface:

No you will not. It's a straight upgrade. Its environment might be a bit harsher though.

Yep, same here, except I totally hated the stock grind. The second gun wasn't good either. It was only when I got the top gun I started to love it.

Tier X, yeah maybe i should practice a bit more and get my stats up first.

Spent so many games bouncing shot after shot, felt like i was playing in a tier 7.

It's not about stats. Tier 10 is a sh1tshow. It's the most unbalanced tier.

These past few days I didn't touch my TX tanks. Only played T VI-IX. And I have been having tons of fun. Something I hadn't had in a long long time. I rarely fire gold ammo, the game is less tense and more about fun. Even as bottom tier I am way more useful. Maybe TX is just not for me.

My most played tank and happy that it's top of the tree this month since it had been parked up for a while when I was grinding other lines.  Rate of fire is still it's big let down and lack of a truly effective "special" shell which is very situational.

 

Turret armour is back up to it's original levels and mobility whilst not Soviet UFO tank is still good.

 

Highlight of my weekend was bouncing a JPZE100 heat shell off the mantlet on Steppes.

I'm hoping it is... got about 10K to go on the Cent 1 grind, then it's all about the Cent 7/1... the WoT premium 3X boost 5 times a day means I'll easily get through the tier 9 grind by the end of the month...

if you like cent1 then you would enjoy cent71 aswell, while the 105 has a fairly long rld it is a powerful tank. and turret being able to bounce quite alot aswell

 

sadly the fun stops at cent71, cax has a pretty awful turret/plain downgrade from tier 9 so far my experience

Cent 7/1 would be great for a F2P because of it's high standard pen, 268mm apcr. I also like the fact that it has 3 valid ammo choices none of which is simply better than any other: Standard apcr has highest pen, while the premium HESH has higher alpha but lower pen but higher ammo cost and HE has high dmg and decent pen, but doesn't cost as much as the premium ammo. 

 

Good gun to go with good turret and nice depression, it's a good package and I'll probably enjoy either the grind or keeping it. Haven't decided yet.

Well I'm not enjoying it so far... the 20pdr guns just don't have the penetration needed... I'm getting about 1 penetration for every 5 hits... it will be much better with the 105mm top

gun, but you have to grind 147K XP before you get to that (and I've only done 95K of that so far)

 

and every battle the first shot that hits the 7/1 takes out the ammo rack....

Since this is a self promoting topic, i am going also shamelessly to promote my self by just saying in this video there is as well a Centurian 7/1 ^^

 

 

Thank you, and congratiolations on your ace tanker badges
