WG have to do something about this tank! They've made this game "pay to win". Totally unfair to those who cannot afford to spend money buying such tanks.


Don't be fooled by my winrate. I'm really a unicum in disguise.

Tier 5 used to see tier 7.  Play smarter, don't do dumb things.

Use feedback or 5.9 update to tell WG.

It’s a highly situational tank. 

   Large Alpha, poor accuracy, long reload, weak armor (for a tier 7 heavy). 

Russian style gun depression.  

 Also less HE pen than the KV-2, albeit only 1mm with CS, but...

 

Personally I think there are several better tier 7 tanks, including several tech tree tanks.   

 

I’ve been playing it a fair amount lately, I don’t enjoy the play style - but I am missing the ace in it...

I think 5.5 was good for the game - But I also want my Kenny OP nerfed. 
Sorry I haven’t aced the Smasher yet - So I’m still ruining tier 6-8

It´s not OP. You need at least 10,000 battles to complain about a tank. My advice: go back to Tier 5 and learn to play. Try harder, gain experience instead of complaining. Unless, of course, you are jealous because you didn´t buy one.

Not OP. I don't own one, but I don't have much trouble playing against one.

  Regardless of whether the tank was good for the game or not money is what pays the bills and if no one spends any the game can’t survive. You have to look at it like it from the point of the seller, it isn’t their fault you won’t buy one. There is nothing unfair about that.

It's not so bad now that there aren't 4 in every game.

It's not even the most op tank in tier 7, I'd take a Tiger P or the buffed Black Prince over it, just from the tech tree.

Will most likely catch a nerfing next update.

Will probably still be a good tank, but not a guaranteed 2000 damage every battle, kind of tank.

 

 

 

:(


Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

I only remember one game where the Smasher gave me trouble. I was in my T34 and he kept hitting my hatch at mid-range for 600+ damage. I was livid.

 

Since then, however, I've bounced one off the side of my Rudy and avoided pretty much all the others lol. I've only noticed that in my mid-tier mediums I can sometimes bounce off seemingly-gray areas. That's mildly irritating but nowhere near as bad as the E75.

 

It's not as OP as everyone cried about. Just don't sit in front of it.

I'd take Tiger I, T29, Comet, T20, T25, T25/2, IS, T-43, Panther...

 

It is a frustrating tank due to the reload 

   Sure it is awesome to smash someone.

But those hits are not the typical.

 

It thrives when the clueless play against it --- you can peak a boom folks till the cows come home -- but most folks will take advantage of the poor gun handling and the reload - and run circles around you --- all you need to do is juke enough to wreck the aim and then it's a coin toss if it will hit - or hit a tank in a battle four maps over...

The Tiger is the only one of those I fear one on one in my Smasher. 

 

Caveate:-As long as I have a rock or building to keep me from being COD'd.

2nd Caveate: -As long as it's not being driven by someone better than I am.

Forget the smasher.  The wz120 is by far the most broken ptw tank in the game.

Smasher is a collector tank, it can be nerfed. Premiums can too!

I just took on a KV-2 and a Smasher at the same time! :ohmy:  I was in my SU-44-122....I pinned Mr. Smasher to the wall and blew him up,team mate got the KV-2.

 

Like I've said from the first these things are scary when you don't know where they are,you pay any attention and they be a joke :teethhappy:
