Good tank.

It's not stupidly OP like regular Caernarvon is, but still viable in current meta.

It is a very good tank, good credit income potential. ;)

Yes, a good tank. Only it has been on so many time, including once for gold already ... if things go on like this I will not get rid of any of my lootbox gold anytime soon.

So you're saying the pain of playing the Black Prince is actually worth it to get a Caernarvon?

IMO the most imbalanced tank i've ever played. Makes me wonder why almost no one complains about this bs.

Yep the tech tree Caern is a very good tank for decent players. Far from being op though, it's not a Defender or an equivalent of the t29 at tier 8.

I played like 20-30 games in my t29 a week ago or so and to be honest, it is still good, but, only if you get to a game, where you can actually get to the battle. I found myself chasing battle with it most of the times. Game has become just too fast for it.
I loved BP years ago, but I would imagine it is even worse with PB now, than it is with t29, regarding the game-speed. Both are still good in the battle, but you just can't get there. Best games where losses where you had to defend yourself in a target-rich environment. As long as there is caern at t8, i would never buy AX, but patriot vs t32, yes.

I simply don't like it, way too slow traverse speed, gave him many chances, but Patriot is much better tank for me.

Some people are talking that the average duration of battles has become 20% shorter from the times of 0.9.17, because of changes of 0.9.18 (MM, SPGs and LTs) and some other decisions (WV and etc.) which were made later.

We may not like the changes of ammunition and HP which are planned, but they should prolong an average time of battles a bit.

Maybe it won't become the same as it was before 0.9.18, but it should be better for armoured slow vehicles with bad concealment value than now anyway.

I can understand you not liking it, no arguments there, but AX mobility is more on the good side, rather than bad. Yes, patriot is bit better, but together with turret traverse, AX is good, at least to me it seems like it. On hard it takes AX bit over 1 second longer to make 360 degrees turn. Is that, lets say 1,5 seconds really that noticeable? On soft it is better than patriot even without the turret.
