It’s just a premium T-29 with a fun gun. Yes the gun can put out some damage but it’s American...just shoot the hull and it crumbles. 12 second reload...the only people really suffering from this tank are people who don’t know about it. 
 

Also funny when people complain about fake tanks while driving a fake tank. Irony Lowe...irony.

I think it is on the level of the smasher

Yeah, it's just like a T-29.  Which was already considered by some to be the best tier 7 tank.  Just like a T-29, except with a third more DPM.  Sure, sometimes they are easy to kill, because sometimes they are driven by a nub getting high on freon in his momma's basement, but sometimes they are driven by a guy who understands the basics of hull down.  

 

If a person feels powerless or insignificant in their life, the easiest way to achieve power is to make other people angry; every internet troll has known this since 1993 and every toddler has known it since the dawn of time.

I would like to remind that forums that I am the resident dumb-[edited].  One day, in a few years time, if I really buckle down and apply myself, I'll learn the proper naming conventions for the tanks that represent freedom in all it's glory.

 

Edit:  OP did it first!  I'm hereby blameless!

Like I already admonished Cletus for, it is T29, NOT T-29...

 

  Also Annihilator is OP in 6/7 games, - and depending on red tanks can be OP still in 8.

This does not apply to the T29 or the Annihilator.

T29 hull is better than the Anni. 

 

...at least from a smashers perspective.

Agreed, but neither hull is crumbly per se. A lot stronger than they should be.

In a tier 8 battle with many tier 8 heavies yes. 
  In a tier 6/7 game or a tier 8 without a lot of heavy armored heavies no.

The Annihilator can conceivably destroy a t29 in 14 seconds though with high rolls

Nothing like broken DPM -> third best heavy DPM - and it is significantly faster than the Black Prince, or FV201(45), and it has the broken speed consumable too.

  Plus if you notice its HE - it has 122mm blast radius

Blast radius eh? 

 

I was wondering if the HE had more overmatch or something when I saw 122 on tank compare... The actual pen number isn't very impressive, so that was throwing me off.

It's pen isn't great - but the blast radius means you get a better chance of damaging weaker areas.
