The D.W. 2 is currently a great machine, and people who appreciate its current play style will definitely find it fun.

 

That said, it is NOT the same tank as used to be in the tech tree. It's no longer a seal-clubbing, rolling dpm bunker. Over the years, it's had its frontal armor strengthened (only on the upper half of the tank, though, so watch your lower glacis plate) so it can go hull down a bit more comfortably. It's still got the lovely 160 alpha (and 200 HE alpha with 38mm of pen :B) and it recently had it's premium ammo damage buffed to 140 alpha to help when you're dealing with tier 5 armor. It has a bit less dpm than it originally did in its more OP form, and some tanks at tiers 3-4 have had their penetration buffed since the D.W. 2's armor was so fearsome long ago. It currently plays similarly to a Kuro Mori Mine, if you're familiar with that play style. Basically, it's not a super heavy like some German heavies, but it absolutely has bouncy armor if you show the enemy the right parts of it at the correct angles, and enough dpm to still put up a fantastic fight.

 

So this is a public service announcement: Don't expect the D.W. 2 to be like you remember, if you had it originally, but do except to be able to have fun with it, should you put in the effort to excel with its new play style in this meta years later. Happy trails, y'all, and good luck with the D.W. 2! :)

It's not the RNG, the MM, the diameter of your shell, the thickness of your armor, or the number of premium rounds you carry that counts ultimately; it's the courage in your heart, the calmness in your mind, the hope and faith you have in your team, and the way you use what's at your disposal that truly determines Victory.

Many people are getting their hands on the D.W. 2 again (or some for the first time) thanks to the battle pass, so that's why I posted this now.

Had the DW2 before the nerf- the difference was significant. It now has an 11 sec reload for 160 alpha.....

Playing anything blow tier 5 is like walking in the mud.

Anyone who played before 5.5 can attest.

After 18 months worth of updates post-5.5, the low tiers feel very different than they did. There are now some really fun tanks at low tiers. For example, I, personally, found the re-worked UE 57, Covenanter, and AT-1 to be fun :)
