some tanks I play seem to have cursed cupolas.

 

VK45b was one, which I was forced to sell because of that

now I found another - 50TP

I get solidly penned repeatedly from game to game from 200m (often more) away on the move

 

do you also have tanks with cursed cupolas?

Not that I care much about ONI, because I don't intend to play it more than necessary ( missions ), but I have to say those frontal mini turrets annoy the hell out of me. They never work for me, and on the other hand enemy ONIs keep trolling me.

There is a reason why my KV5 stays in the garage, R2D2 in the front is a shell magnet.

No that's why players avoid certain American tanks that WG keep putting into the game which come with the added bonus of a TKS20 attached to the top.

A cupola is a wekaspot. If you have one...try not to show it too much...

IN all seriousness, barring maybe 2 tonks (Object 430U and VK 100.01P) the cupolas in general are weakspots. If they're hit, they're penned.

You don't need to be cursed if you play the Foch 155/Foch B. :(

You can tell you have not played for a while.

 

KV-5 is so rare nobody knows where to shoot it.

 

And they buffed R2D2 so it's good against tier VI.

I sniped Krangvang cupola from across the gap at the start on Mountain Pass with my leopard 1.

I have Tiger P , VK 45.02A, VK45.02B, so i'd say yes. But there's solutions:

 

As it goes for the VKs, use rubble, rocks, small ramps or stuff like that to tilt back the tank a little and keep wiggling to make it hard for the enemy to aim properly.

I think all tanks should have cupolas, problem is that some of them are impossible to hit (is-7,...)  and others are just big fat target (t110e5,...) . I would increase sizes of cupolas on tanks that doesnt have it like is7 and maybe add new DMG mechanics that shooting that big fat cupolas only gives u half of a dmg and stun commander or kills it.
