This tank turned out quite a disappointment. 

 

For me it isn't worth going bananas over.

Thise are my findings:

The turret speed is so slow, it can't react to what's happening on the frontline. It's a camping tank with a terrible accuracy.

The double barrel action: Nice gimminck but totally useless. Can and should only be used on stationary targets on point blank with no armour. Don't be surprised to do ZERO damage then either. And the shells are just bad, all of them. Last game I bounced off a totally green target at point blank, switched to gold ammo, bounced off. Happend 8 times in a row. The shell stats are useless until we know the probability a shell will go in or not. AND if it is a wehicle specific rng (which I suspect is the case). 

There is a lag between you press the button and the tank fires. Quite annoying result of having the double barrel fire on the same button. 

Yes it has decent speed and armour...doesn't help much if the gun is below par.

Please, make this tank playable -or at least fun to play.

Change the key for doubleshot and you'll have no more firing lag.

Yup, I have disabled the double action.

It takes about 5 seconds to fire the double barrel,

it takes about 5 secs between two single shots. AND you have a bigger chance to do damage.

Can't see any reason to fire the two barrels simultaniously.

It doesn't "have" to anything only because it's set like that by default. Assign a different key and suddenly there's no "lag" anymore.

Magic.

the double shot for me is ony use when im 95% sure it will pen, eg if i got the side in close combat of a tank or a weak tanks front then i will derp him for 700+ most times i use it as a normal tank but the oher options are nice, like being able to go round and take a tank out shotting them once then agian a few seconds later.

If u use the double shot to much it will troll u hard, also just because u shoot premium ammo dont mean its auto pen then u also have to remember that they dont hit the dot on ur screen they hit either side.

I think alot of people are disappointed only because the tanks not OP like people thuoght it would be and to be honest i think WG did a good job actully balancing it out as to not make it OP, is good  and fun in toons also

That's baby Jesus playing with his new 703, and his mother and dad, Maria and Josef. They are amazed what they just read.

it's actually a pretty balanced tank, not everything needs to be broken like Defender.....

Sorry but this tank is not bad at all.

It's just not op like the defender or the likes.
So in the words of some clan... Deal with it?

The object 703 became my favorite tier 8 premium. Its not the next Jason Vorhees nobrain winner premium tank like defender, but its definitely good. 

The double shot is meant to be used in certain situations, and it is very useful sometimes. Its not for doubleshot spamming. (I had a battle yesterday though, when i killed 3 enemies in a row with 7-800 hp.... It was a situation, when it needed to be used)

The single shot delay can be fixed by putting the doubleshot to another button in settings.

And no, its not a camping tank.

 

Give the 703 a little time to get used to. Or not. The less 703s in the battles, the better for me. :trollface:

I have the Obj.252U, aka Defender but I don't like it. I find the reload time and horrible gun handling somehow killing the joy with that tank. 50TP Prototyp is a much more enjoyable tank in my opinion. Anyhow, I really wanted to get this double barrel from the lootboxes, damn my luck, I haven't received any tier 8s from 75 boxes.

Failing to pen a tank 8 times in a row is clearly a learn to play issue.

 

Sadly for you, as you are choosing to believe that your tank is "secretly rigged" rather than you need to learn to aim better, you can expect to continue to do badly.

didn't get one out off the boxes but must say, it has a nice gimmick with the twin barrel but for me it lacks the fear factor when facing it, just an other heavy that I can most of the time pen and that can hurt me if I let it

Well yea, it is a well balanced tank that is quite fun to play. I think WG hit the nail on the head with this one.

Personally I find it balanced which is quite a shock really. People seem to think that if a new tank comes out and it actually has weaknesses that it's useless and not worth the time or money. I also think that in the hands of the very best players it will be very strong while in the hands of people who don't know what they are doing it will be very underwhelming.

Its pretty situational, but it can be a big help in finishing off isolated enemies.
