Is it because the British models, pretty poor to start with, have been absolutely obliterated by power creep? :hiding:


I uninstalled a couple of years back, moved on to other games. A friend persuaded me to come back, because 'so much has changed'. Well, yes, a lot has changed. Sadly, a lot hasn't.


Take my beloved FV 4202. An excellent Tier 10 medium, slow and under armoured, but with a terrific gun, great camo and my go to when stuck in a sea of reds.


Now it's a Tier 8, with a popgun? Who thought that was a good idea?


Popguns seem to be a bit of a theme with the Brits now. The 6lber bounces everywhere, ditto the 75mm (although to be fair it was always pants), the 20lber is a waste of time against anything on it's own tier...


Am I missing something? How do you win games in a Brit these days? It used to be a case of using ridges and pinking away the other guy's hit points, now it seems like everyone else has a whole lot of extra armour, or the Brit popguns have been nerfed, I'm bouncing off the sides of most things. I'm not going anywhere near high tier games, I'm losing a fortune on tiddlers, I don't think I can take seeing my Conquerors going up in flames game after game!


So how about it chaps, any tips for a (very) rusty old timer? (Beyond 'git gud!' :))

Hello there and welcome back. :)


They're still the same as you described. Hull down tanks with low(ish) alpha.


If you want a list of good british tanks here you go...


Heavies:  Black prince (ok) - Caernarvon (very good) - Conqueror (very good) - Super Conqueror (very good)

Mediums: Firefly (good) - Cromwell (good) - Cromwell B ( very good) - Centurion 5/1 (very good premium) - Centurion 7/1 (good) - CAX (ok)

TDs: AT8 ( good) - AT7 (good) - Tortoise (very good) - Challenger (good) - Charioteer (excellent) - Conway (ok)


There is a lot of gold flying around in the game right now. Lots of credits available which allows that so be prepared to do the same.

British tanks have been powercreeped generally, some are still very good. I think they have a higher skill cap requiring more experience and situational awareness (no pun intended) They are generally not designed for brawling at the front or trading; but are support vehicles, relying on good base pen (cent t8 t9), high alpha (215b 183, 4005), dpm (comet, s conq)

I like my Brit's and I like my Germans, what can I say, I like Hard Luck Cases.....


I wasn't as Impressed with the 4202 at Tier 10, but I do prefer it at Tier 8.....      Cent 5/1 is an Equally Good Medium and Pocket Heavy when Top Tiered, just don't get to see that Often enough....     I kept everything Tier 8 on Up on most Lines, this one I did sell the Cent MkI only because I had the P.Vic and I needed the Space for another Line....


L7 Tanks are still the Derpiest 105mm Guns I have ever seen next to my Lansen C, and the 7/1 and Charioteer are no Exception.....     Bought back my Cromwell because I like it Better than the Bromwell....      Just Finished the S.Conq On Track so I have that now, Deathstar has been added after a 4yr Wait....


I even Bought the TL1 LPC, not for the Offspring Skin or Music, but because of the FV4201....       I have it Reskinned that way and I prefer playing it like my Brit's because frankly it's a Very Similar Creature....


And now I hear WG has Brit Armored Cars in Development for Super Test....     I haven't gotten the Lights yet, but I do look forward to these....
