Hi all

 

So, I'm ploughing up the Japanese HT line with the monstrous Type 5 in mind, trouble is I'm only at tier iv and I'm bored already (Type 95 is truly hateful).

On paper, the Type 5 seems like the all conquering King of Monsters that gave it it's nickname but I'm worried about them being nothing more than staggeringly slow pillboxes that will attract mucho arty fire.

My question to you all is, are the IX & X worth the effort?

It's how the original creators pronounced Godzilla.

Your poll is confusing, yes means no and no means yes. :amazed: (fixed now, ignore)

 

Play to the O-Ni, and just stop there. Beyond that it's just gold magnets, not tanks. With potato guns and ruined derps. No fun anymore. Really, really sad what they've done to the derps.

I don't see either of the Type 4 and 5 Bro's around much anymore so I guess WG killed them.

I skipped the low tiers tbh and started at 5. And I sold most of the line. Tho, to be fair some of them have been changed to get some of the stuff I found lacking. Others have ofc been nerfed like the tier 5. And tbh, the tier 5 is "meh" even on armor. But after that from tier 6 and up. It's like normal. Either bounces everything, or nothing. Tier 7 was "meh", but tier for tier the most solid out of the bunch followed by the tier 6 IMO. Tier 8 back then had no gold ammo for the AP gun, so you could not pen half the targets you faced, and the armor was not that effective tier for tier vs the others. And the tier 6 derp vs tier X armor was lacking.

 

Type 4 tbh I suspect can be a bit of a pain stock. But, I find it rather solid with the buffed 14cm. And it can hold a corner... once you get to it. Tho don't expect much of either fun or effectiveness out of the 15cm anymore. But armor is still solid, and the 14cm can still scare most off with the 600 alpha.

Not worthing it, type 5 can be panned by HEAT so easy, imo? Go for it after shells rebalance.

Played till O-Ni, sold it, took O-I again, love it, don't play it anymore but its still in the garage for perhaps future play. Also tier 5 is not bad too, ofc MM dependent, but tier 6 with derp doesnt care if its top tier or bottom :) 

Higher tiers are crippled with latest nerf, I would say justified but some ppl liked it (see NekoPuff above)

After the shell rebalance? Won't the shell rebalance kill it more considering it got a derp gun if I remember correctly?

According to the plans of WG or what they showed us in sandbox or whatever, it seems that superheavy tanks will benefit the most from the "rebalance" so thats why he is suggesting that type 4/5 could be competitive/interesting again..

AP gun has waek pen but it's better than derp gun, it has DPM and good alpha damage.

Ah, alright, wait do you mean it's better as of right now or it will be better, like how the KV-2 will have it's AP buffed but you know, it's HE nerfed.

Since the gun nerfs

THANK GOD FOR THAT

they are rat poop.

Press 2-2 and We Gucci.

Yeah, you gotta aim at them a bit but you know...

But since you are at it now already, get the tier 6. That is enough to taste the flavor.

I'd be fine with them being competitive. It's certainly better than being rubbish, as they are now.

I'll be honest with you, I don't have a lot against many tanks but those big green boxes have given me more nightmares than I can count, as I've tried to pen them endlessly to no gain and they've almost one-shot me back.

I'm quite happy where they are at right now, but I suppose I might be a bit biased here since I hate them truly down to the bottom of my heart cause of all the pain they've given me in their "golden" age.

Fun fact - the 10cm gun has better depression over the boobs AND is better overall.

It was the line I started with back in the day. I got all the way up to O-Ni (during the T-44-100 marathon) before I decided I just can't stand them anymore. So I kept O-I for some Stronghold shenanigans we used to have back at that time. Tbh that's been a long while too, so I guess that excuse is no longer valid either. 

Anyways, my few experiences from playing them are exactly that: You crawl around like a huge building attracting all the HEAT and arty fire in the world while doing so. And your only defense is the RNG-Durp that sometimes used to make you giggle for gazillion credits, but nowadays just reminds you of those golden days. 

 

So, "no". I don't recommend that line for anyone except if you really really can't pen anything at high tiers if your life depended on it and you just wanna derp around and even then I hear there's better choices nowadays.
