That's what I use TotT for too.
I'm waiting for Crew 2.0 so I can retrain my huge number of high skill Tier 10 crews back down into tier 8s and 9s.

whats changed - or whats wrong with it now - I thought the 3 clip system with quicker loading and intra-clip was a positive thing?

I found the T9 Emil2 good enough to draw the line there. Same alpha, pen and reload times roughly as the Kran and the front turret shield like armor is about as good vs most tanks too.

 

The Kran was tempting but it didn't seem to offer a whole lot more of anything at a glance to bother purchasing and transferring crew and equipment etc plus T9 MM occasionally see's T7 tanks whereas T10 tanks often get "T10 only" battles and a bit too rich an environment for my free2play cheap standard account asz. :hiding:

 

A lot slower a tank than the top speed rating would suggest, was kinda hoping for a heavium when I saw their rather impressive top speed but they appear to be powered by a Ford Fiesta 1.1 engine so ya, expect to be left behind by all other heavy tanks but that's probably fair since it can peak over a hill and so long as you don't show the enemy that tinfoil roof by simply pointing your gun straight during a reload, then you're in a good place. Also be careful when engaging a target when he has support to one side since the turret cheeks are easy pen along with that long alien head it's got, whenever not showing that shield front to an enemy.

 

Also that roof as mentioned, ya, it can get really hit hard by for full damage by an SPG shell so gotta be careful about that too. The gun has no elevation either so while they can be incredibly strong when fighting on their own terms, just be aware that they're not as Godlike as some experienced players may give an illusion to believing when you fight them during battles. Very often it's just a case of an experienced player knowing how to play this tank, where to go, where not to go, and working themselves into such a position and timing as to create that punishing moment with seemingly no way to counter it. They most certainly do have weaknesses and big ones at that which with some game knowledge can really punish and exploit.

bigger reticle. worse accuracy. slower shell reload between shots, lower damage per clip, slower tank. in fact this tank is a piece of $%&$ in comparison to what it was!
