So after the nerf of the Type5/fv4005 i thought I would start some more tech lines. Really enjoying the Italian p44 pantera but how good is the centurion 1 (top gun on it) 

we are all quick to criticise but really enjoying playing this tank.

 

i will assume it will be nerfed soon as most the tanks I have seem to be nerfed soon after I get them but I will enjoy it while I can.

Centurion is a good tank in top config. As is the 7/1. Sturdy turret, good depression and good pen.

Thats the biggest problem

 

I can convert 750000 XP for a tank that will get nerfed if WoT decides its too good

 

Or I can buy a premium tank

 

 

Its a no brainer

Neither the Pantera nor the Centurion is overperforming so it's not likely they'll get nerfed. Centurion even got buffed a while ago to ease off the power creep. 

 

And as stated above, you don't need to convert anything, neither should you. IMO it's filthy expensive way to just skip the content you should be enjoying to play. UK Medium line is one of the better lines in this game without "rotten apples", except for maybe the centurion stock grind.

Centurion 1 Is a very fun tank, really enjoyed it.

 

Centurion 7/1 is bad stock, but amazing once upgraded.

Maybe if you just research the worst tank they'll buff it. :trollface:

The other thing is time

 

I can spend 100 hours of my life getting it for free and it can be nerfed

At my age 100 hours is a lot and you work darned hard for those free xp

That 100 hours could have been spent enjoying myself on WoT or something else instead of grinding

 

Or three hours of work for a premium which won't get nerfed

 

For me its a no brainer

Unless it's Russian, even after 10 nerfs it will still be better. So if you wanna free XP a line, make sure it's Russian.

There are many tanks that are widely criticised/disliked on the forum that I tend to do well in. Then there are other, popular tanks that I have done badly in, even as an experienced player. Some, like the IS-3, seem to be cursed to have negative win rates for all time no matter what I do. I own nearly all of the tier V TDs, and have played all of them in the past. I am pretty good at this tier and I am pretty good in these vehicles, so I can compare like for like by tier/type.

 

There are those with better damage and worse win rate and vice versa. Mostly they are pretty close. I think there is some influence with tier spread. Face too many tier VII battles and your HP damage is less overall of the enemy health.


I digress, but what I am getting at is that things are just- weird. Sometimes.

 

I still own some of the less popular vehicles such as the T-34-100. That is one of my highest average damages for tier VII. http://wotreplays.eu/site/4293531#steppes-powjay-kon_trukta_t-34_100

The Archer http://wotreplays.eu/site/2334034#ruinberg-powjay-archer

I've sold the KV-1 for good after buying it three times. This noob-friendly tank has never worked out for me. I've tried it with every gun. Although I have a good crew spare, there is no way I am buying it back.


The point? I do have one, you know.


Try everything, because you never know when you are going to find a real gem of a tank. I wish I was more successful at higher tiers, but I am not awful all of the time...
