WG devs could show us in live stream how to deal with 279 without gold ammo.

Don't do anything, just track them, and walk on their nerves. :D

The only way for most to deal with it head-on at range is to come in at an angle. Or wait for him to angle his hull towards someone else so you can hit him where the tow cable goes on the side. Along that wire under the turret ring then it's about 190 effective. So track and go for that if you have ROF. If I can't abuse that spot or flank fire it, then there is no point hanging around.

Thats what I did.

  1. Tracked him in the open.
  2. Hopped that my arty noticed this.
  3. They "rebalanced" the s*#t ouf of him. :arta:
  4. Profit?

Another time

  1. Loaded HE in my JgpzE100
  2. Derped 400per shot
  3. Rebalanced the $*%t out of him :arta:
  4. Profit?

I legit wanted to see their faces after. :D

What happens if both teams have one?

Is it a win-win?

One thing you should do (if you already haven't...though literally everyone should) is go into your aim marker settings and change it to the "Crosshair with armor penetration indicator". This way, you'll get a better idea of what parts of an enemy vehicle's armor you can penetrate by 'scanning' over his armor.

Ah, that's WG's 'balancing department' at work.

Lame tank, terribly balanced. Fits really well in the game.

I still lack many tanks, but I did reach Chimera missions, and my goal is to reach it, it isn't impossible. But it requires a looot of effort.

Facehug it and aim down. I could reliably pen it with IS-4 AP in this way. And if you have good frontal armour, he may also have problem to retaliate in this way.

you guys might struggle with Heavy tanks armour but meanwhile i am living the dream.

nothing brings me more joy in life than making a Heavy tank player regret his tank choice. :justwait:

It it beatable. I dealt with one without premium ammo in Obj.140. 279e is overpowered only when he has allies. Find a way to get rid of his allies, keep him tracked, create a good angle and make him regret his life choices. Alot of 279e drivers are overconfident and currently alot of players figured out these reward tanks are major threats in battle. Artillery players know they have to focuse it and TDs know they have to spam HE or HEAT. It is not that big of a deal in my opinion. In current state of MM you get idiotic battles all the time anyway, it doesn't matter if it's 279e that made it or any other tank
