There's many sh*tbarns and deathstars and HE from this hits only for ~600 on heavy armor...?

If you play the JP well there is imo definitily a place for it. The FV4005 just sucks and the FV183 also has it's flaws regarding armor and gun handling. The few times I played the JP I did really well in it so I don't know why it wouldn't be viable.

It's good when you hit some1 for 1k+ dmg, but sucks when it rolls only 800! Everyone shoots gold at you, so your armor wont hold up against many tier 10. Needs some buffs, like turret

Jg E100 was my first t10 tank back in 2013. Had 1,8k games long much fun, until I sold it 3 years ago. (Dont know why, probably had some unconfortable games on it and it didnt fit into the medium meta back then)

 

Got the Idea to rebuy it last month (To do 100% Moe) and tbh, I didnt regret that at all.

 

I just love the gun for being able to punch someone for 1k damage. Gameplaywise I used this tank as some Heavy Assault TD. The Armor is not the best against heat, but still usefull against t8, t9 and some T10 while sidecraping.

Played the tank whit full repair crew, Bond repair kit, Large repair kit and repair directives. You dont want to see the face of some players, when they realize your tracks have 4 seconds repair time.

i predicted this thread would get a hamster like, i mean, it's just star alignment during the month of Scorpio.

 

either way, thanks for the replies. It's just that I don't play slow tanks all that much.

Don't worry it's just bad day mate.

De Jag-De-panza-e-hanza is going to be the best 1k+ damage dealer boss. ;)

I wish the guy who just one shotted my 50/100 had thought of turning it in just before he pressed battle. Blew my turret clean off. :(

Deathstar and Turdbarn are lucky to hit for 3-400+, and even luckier if they survive the engagement.

 

Jageroo is still relatively accurate at longer ranges and has the HEAT of doom. Also, the HE shells are mega. Jaageroo will also bounce alot of shells at mid range. None of which the Brit Tds can ever hope to achieve.

To be able to pen literally everything, to ruin someone's game in one shot and also to get farmed most of the time.

So long as you have tight corridor maps with long inescapable roads where you can hide a lower plate behind conveniently placed rocks(or whatever it is, behind a teammate maybe? lol), like either side of Abbey, and there are plenty of those type of maps then yes, a heavily armored and well sloped upper front hull TD with a high pen mega gun can do frightening amounts of damage and have a great low skill time while their at it so that seems as good a reason to play it as any. They generally do well so long as it's placed sensibly.

QB said, or maybe Jingles said, that they wanna remove pen from HE. Let's see how good those new deathstars will be then :)

EBR 105, All British tanks except manticoe and TDs with high pen will lose the HE high pen advantage.

Reliable high alpha. Armour. (Without stupid angled bits that effectively counteract any kind of angling you use.)

 

One of the best meta tanks for randoms at the moment.

In my opinion, yes. It is really good at trading in city/corridor fights. As long as you got hard cover to work with, there is very little out there that can outfight it. Most maps provide just that. To back up my opinion I got a 60% solo w/r on it. That makes it my single best performing tier ten. To put that 60% w/r in perspective, my solo tier ten w/r is usually barely over 50%. Heavy armour + high alpha performs really well in the current meta. It helps that potential annoyances can be HE'd into salty heaps of unhappiness. That said, it isn't a tank in which you can just press W and proceed to win the game. Brains are still required, but this tank does make it a lot easier to carry games all the way. If you are willing to download previous versions of the game, I got one or two replays that show exactly what I mean.
