 Veteran Tanks?

Souma SM = good, but its more a sort of ambush tank, to surprize other enemy heavies engaged in combat (in a city) with other, and then you can 'pop-out' from another flank, and clip them, but its by no means a standard heavy tank.:)

The Centurion is good, when on a slope, peeking over, and very reliable gun. :great:

The VK as said before, its armor has way to large and many weakspots to be effective at all, when you sidescrape they just fire straight trough the turret cheeks, or hit the very large cupola :facepalm:, the gun is nice though.

TS5 i personally am not a big fan of td playstyle that forces you to be at arms length with you opponents, that is not what td gameplay is supposed to be.

The polish tank i do not have any experience with.

I do have experience with the 50TP Prototype, so let me add a bit here. 

When it comes to play style it`s somehow close to Defender in that it has comparable gun, tough turret and UFP as well as similar mobility. Let`s jump to the details, though: 

- 35km/h is pretty OK for a heavy, no issue here. However, Polish tanks reaches it faster and has much better turn rate. 

- when it comes to armor, Defender is obviously better: 50TP proto has vulnerable lower front plate and because of the shape of the hull armor it`s more difficult to angle/not to expose weak spots. Still, if you don`t show your sides or LFP 50TP can take quite some punishment. 

- the gun: neither is a sniper, but 50TP reloads bit faster, is bit more accurate and has better aim. As a tradeoff, you get worse penetration of the standard and premium shells - but with better aim, you are more likely to hit a spot where it will get through. Also, gun depression is noticeably better on 50TP (it`s -10 vs -6)

 

Overall, I find the 50TP to be more fun to play. 
Also - the tech tree Polish tier VIII heavy is pretty nice. It sacrifices the hull armor, but gets better speed ( up to 40km/h ) and better gun - which makes it a pretty decent vehicle, IMO.

No, firstly it was the standard offer, I'm quite sure. I looked the offers again, and they removed the code from all packages. :D

Just one comment, if I may. About the RAAC, the side skirts do not provide additional spaced armor on any other centurions, tech tree or the Prima. 


then it must have weaker side armor. because a centurion can sidescrape

Spam some a lot of prem tanks before the 10th season of FL.

 

Cmon, borderline OP prems is not what the game currently needs.

In my opinion, 50TP is more fun to play for you, because you are already an experienced player. Defender is forgiving a lot more mistakes which is quite useful for unexperienced players. Also the 50TPs cupola - I think it is easier to hit than on the defender. On the other hand that -10 degrees is very nice, but it works only when you turn your turret, frontally it is 8 degrees.

Huh? I always thought it counted as spaced armour on my Privy… The armour model on tanks.gg seems to agree?

Some good tanks some I have no experience of.

 

50TP looked at it a few times not bought it as yet.

Vk75-01K again considered it but rejected it too many downsides besides I have the Lowe much better accuracy and view range and armour is reliable if played properly.

Centurion 5/1 better than the Swedish version lack of sideskirts is annoying but better frontal armour so I am happy with my purchase very similar to the standard model.

Somua SM I rather like it no it does not have good armour its simply better than say the 50-100 still doesn't mean you will bounce much decent autoloader thats slightly better than the standard model.

TS-5 nice TD and it was good to get it discounted with the event they ran, Its a little better than the T28 Lower plate is weaker otherwise its armour is more effective.

Matchmaking with 15-0 15-2 battle scores. WG wont get any money. You don't have enough new players, and you can't get money enough from veterans. Bad days for WG. Wallet closed unless you sell extremely OP premium tanks.

None of those are veterans. :P

 

These two-year-olds are called veteran because so many new premiums are coming soon  

 

It is necessary to evoke that feeling in the minds of the people, that they have no new tanks, so they have to buy :D .

Not sure why people think the 50TP is bad from the comments - not having played it much maybe? The armour is quite bouncy and almost trolly at times, I've certainly got awards like cool headed and spartan before in it. Its fairly unforgiving though as bad angling kills you but thats true of most tanks. Gun bloom is fairly awful but other than that most stats are nice. Not fond of the pen honestly and the gold ammo is crap..... which is probably why people don't like it as their easy mode is gone. ;)

This #walletclosed is funny cos WG won't care anyway.

 

I've just limited my spending on the game to ~£100 per year.

 

But WG if you want #walletopen then please for f**k's sake nerf Obj. 430 U (nerf it for EU if the plebs on RU server is crying so hard about it) and ban reward tanks from participating in Ranked Battles.

 

I think it's safe to assume that EU server is the one bringing majority of your income so I'd tread carefully here and curb your retarded ideas to the drawing board.

T6's can pen with ease,WG's big mistake was saying it was Defender 2, you play this thing and wish you had the Defender,youplay the Defender,and wish that had it's gun depression, can't win em all,Had this sold it in rage,got the Defender,would take that any day over this.

 

Defender is not easy mode,you still have to angle correctly and do all the other things you have to do in heavies.

To be fair that was the community. And based on the first super test iterations they were right. However, that abomination didn't make it to live, but was rebalanced to a pretty nice heavy. Only played a few games with a rental, but I quite liked it.
