Damn those mission rewards are weak, well other than the damage one, although you removed 25% of the damage requirement and 35% of the reward...

That is when I got mine, so I can comfortably skip this TotT.

You will think you can play hull-down with that turret, until you recieve 3 pens in a row when you happily show your head in the horizon...

You can rely on your turret but from a certain distance, so todays I prefer the Leopard which has different pros.

 

I loved the whole line, I kept also Covenanter and Crusader who are now in the LT line.

Now it's time to buy this new Cavalier and roll the 7 tanks in garage from Matilda to the top ^^

I have the 7/1 and stopped playing it after the 1st mark .I bought the AX and after a few battles i don't think i will play it anymore.

Everyone pens you from every angle easily (since everyone shooting gold now ) and the gun isn't as good as it looks on paper ,you miss too many shots.

Not worth the grind for me , i will wait for the strv which i have reached tier9 at some point although i dont like them at all .

Are we playing different tanks? I'll admit I found the cent 1 avergae, but the 7/1 is a absolute joy. They turret is tough and will bounce most things, but you can never just sit with your turret exposed thats just bad play, and of course tier 10 high pen monsters cna pen it. The gun is great, great pen on the standard ammo with good alpha makes it punchy compared to a lot of other tier 9 meds. Hesh is excellent, when used correctly it can wreck opposing vehciles and great against leo PTAs, Skodas and standard Bs. 

 

I think the main reason people struggle with this tank is that it requires paitence, you are not a brusier like the 430, dont have the great speed of the PTA nor the burst damage of autoloaders/reloaders. But where this tank excels is digging in, it can be incredibly hard to attack into and still has the speed to retreat if need be.

as you can read he stopped playing tier 9 after reaching first mark and got tier 10 tank. his critic is for the centurion ax... and you refer on the centurion 7/1... are you just hunting posts?

Yeah... When you have grinded 124k XP (almost an entire new tier 9 tank FFS!) to be able to actually shoot and bounce something... Just bought it and playing with stock gun and turret - and it is really not entertaining..
