I own most of tier 9 and 10 mediums and I wonder if Centurions are worth grinding. I play purely for fun and results. Are they fun and reliable? What is your experience?

Fun sometimes, reliable not really - the gun accuracy is a lie

Why sometimes? And why gun accuracy is a lie?

Because the gun trolls you alot.

 

But i would say that the cent 7/1 is worth it. You can troll around with prem HESH. 210 pen and 480 alpha is great against tier 7 and 8.

7/1 Can still be quite strong, because tier 9 is the sweet spot and a much better tier, less obvious 'best at everything' meta tanks. 

 

Cent AX is just not good enough, it's like a tier 9.5 to the tier 10 meta tanks, you are just handicapping yourself.

so SQ is tier 9.5 as well then, if you perform in that identical to what you have in CAX.

CAX is kinda garbage. It has no armor and the gun will half the times hit where you aim and the other half will completely miss.

only if you stop thinking about them like 1st line fighters, then you should be fine.

imagine you play a bit heavier Leopard 1, maybe this will work for you.

 

i have both, i like them, even if my results are just mediocre at them.

SC is one of the most over rated tanks in the game, it's slow situational heavy with no alpha, but everyone seems to think it's some OP meta tank despite zero evidence of it.

Centurion Action X, or Ammorack X, I dont know, one of those. But seriously, in my opinion, its not that bad, and in no way horrible. AX is like, some people hate it with passion, some people like it. I belong to the second group. Gun has good pene, accuracy, DPM aint bad. It used to be pretty good, it still is, but not that much. Today its more like mediocre hulldown medium. Aiming time and accuracy aint bad, but gun handling feels weird to me sometimes, not on the level of your average tier X medium these days. Hard to say if Patton is better, as its so slow to get to position on some maps. Cent has pretty decent turret armor, unless you meet full 2 key muppets. 

 

Centurion used to good with that pene on tier 9, and HESH, but nowadays you can just play Leo, AMX 30, Standart B, and even HESH seems less usefull with more and more armored tanks you wont pen. Gun handling is what really kills Cent 7/1 for me in current WoT.

I still love my 7/1. Not as flexible as other tier 9 meds for most roles. But the few he can do, he does well. HE pen = caliber helps a fair bit too. More so today vs wheels.

 

AX I never really liked vs it back in the day. Last I played it lots was when the FV marathon was, and you had 10 AX on each team due to that one mission. It kinda did ruin it for me. Maybe I should revisit it soon, and see how it holds up. It's been... gathering a fair bit of dust the last few years.

7/1 is one of the better T9 meds and I like it a lot. Its a bit slow and it doesnt have the DPM of some of the others. But you have a solid turret, excellent gundep and the gun will hit where you aim if you aim fully. Don´t try to snapshot though that will never work. Its a versatile tank that do what it should. I would recommend it as I found it quite enjoyable. 

 

CAX though...its tier 10. Enough said.

it's certainly playable, but just pales to the buffed Leopard 1 and some other buffed mediums.

It's gimmick is supposed to be it's turret front, which, while able to bounce things is very unreliable. the bounces would usually happen, if enemy hits you on the forehead, if you're hulldown. the rest of the turret is kinda weak, especially if you angle it to either side, the other side then becomes very weak. hull armor is nothing to talk about, but DPM is impressive.

 

so in resumē: it's better than AMX 30 B, so... there you have it and maybe on par with the Patton...

AX not worth it, Cent 7/1 is ok, if you like hull-down playstyle and have patience to fully aim your shots. The alpha is decent for tier 9 and turret armor makes tank workable plus HESH for the occasional giggles.

Cent 7/1 has a gun that never forgives you for aiming 80%.
