Tankenstein is much too weak in armor and too slow  for the time and effort and GOLD ! that had to be spent , on a so called PREMIUM TANK . I would think you would make a better tank since it had to be bought and no way to actually get it otherwise, I was close ,but was insane amount of games to play. Buff it up  ! it seriously needs it ,so we don't all feel ripped off.

 

it isnt weak. It has the hull of the Tiger (P) and the turret of the Kv-4. and the frontal armour on the thing is just great

 

its littery russian bias and german engineering combined with a massive gun.

dunno why ur sayin that buddy

Cover your eyes, guys.

 

John, judging by your stats, your abilities in combat leave much to be desired. No offense, but to average 281 damage in a tank that does more than damage than that with one shot, on either gun, is pretty impressive.

Yeah it is a bit of a beast. Nasty side scraper. Maybe it is just an adjustment period while you get used to the tank.

I just picked it up myself last week and I’m still getting the hang of it as well.

 

If you’re using the 130mm gun, I find it’s very team dependent because of the extremely low rate of fire. Don’t play like a heavy rolling out on the edges of the battle alone, otherwise you’ll get swarmed easily between reloads. Instead play more like a TD supporting your team near you (ie Bushka compares it to a T30), either on the front line or second line. You can push a line as well but only if your team swarms in behind you to finish up what you just nuked. 

 

Also if you’re using the 130mm, use your premium ammo as your primary ammo, as much as possible. It does way more damage with a slight reduction in pen, making each shot all the more punishing against your enemy.

First we had idiots (like me) complain about pay-to-win. Now, we have the polar opposite: people who complain that this game isn't brokenly pay-to-win.

I can’t use the 130mm gun playing solo. I can do over 2000 dmg easy but teams repeatedly yolo and die which leaves you screwed with long reload. Will only use it when I’m platooning. Will stick to 105mm gun when I’m running solo. More responsive.

Mr. Holmes, is the core point of your argument a demonstration of what happens when one doesn’t know how to research a prospective  tank in combination with under-developed skill in the game? That’s what seems to be demonstrated here and that is what the forum crew is telling you.

You do not have the meme-mantlet of the T-29's gun using that of the SU-100Y's gun. Quite frankly, you don't really even HAVE a gun mantlet using the SU-100Y's gun. Bushka himself I believe was the one to say that using the SU-100Y's gun on this tank isn't so much for winning, but for fun. If you want to win, use the 105mm T5E1 gun on this tank. And you could get it without paying, you just had to devote a decent amount of time into the game, just saying, I know a few people who actually obtained this beast for free. Of course, I had to shed 5 bucks on it, but thats one hell of a deal considering the last time it went for sale it was up for 40 dollars. And since the buff when is the Tiger (P)'s hull weak? Do you happen to charge into battle backwards? Btw it seems as if many people don't feel ripped off by this tank on this thread :P

Actually not everyone responding to this thread has a Tankenstein but your points are still valid. I think low WR players think that if a tank looks big and bad, it's indestructible, so they yolo out with it, only to get quickly swarmed and killed. Same thing would happen to a low WR player in a Tiger P. They don't realize it's not the tank alone but how the player uses the tank that matters (i.e. hull down, sidescraping, etc)

 

"But in the promo video the tank is killing all of the enemy with one shot each! That's not happening to me! I've been ripped off! This tank sucks!"  :)
