M6 Exp for 9.99, 30 coupons, a camo, and some other stuff. Worth it?

 

No, I’m not defending German technical superiority, I’m stating the ****ing obvious!

Personally the M6 Exp is one of my most regretted premium purchases because of the super weak turret, but that might just be me.

EXP is pretty overrated. As Kemp mentioned, the turret is a real problem, and the hull is paper on the sides and rear and can be penned straight through the tracks. If you like the look of that gun, then get a T34. Very similar gun on a much more effective platform.

It’s sides are weak, so you need to keep your tank pointed directly at the opponent. It can be a struggle to play well in it. But it’s 9.99, so ...

Any decent player with aim is going to wreck it. But...how many decent players with the ability to aim are out there??

To the other’s points - the T34 does the same trick and does it better

Working as intended

The hull armor isn't hard to manage. It's that turret. Even when you're fully facing the enemies, gold will punch right through the cheeks/turret ring/anything that isn't the mantlet. The slightest turret movement will mean your cheeks are pennable with standard. And remember, unless you're behind a rock, you can't wiggle cuz your hull will be pointed straight so you'll just be moving back and forth instead of left and right. On mobility, it has the power to weight ratio of a medium tank but the top speed of an E 100, which makes absolutely no sense, it's quite frustrating actually. I will say that the gun handing is much better than on the T34, and it's one of the main reasons I bought it, but it's definitely not worth trading away everything else that makes the T34 good.

Wait, the turret is an issue on the M6A1B2C3 ?!

 

That thing is like impenetrable to so many tanks. Keep it hulled down. Look around. Pen enemies.

 

I have had countless engagements against them and gotten eaten alive, unable to pen a hatch, pen their turret, ... (OBJ252 and SharkTank are even worse ) 

 

It is easily on of the better tier viii premiums.

With APCR

 

Yes, it's from the perspective of a heavy tank. Because a medium can just rotate 20 degrees and cut right through the side armor.

 

Ok sure, you can say that it's hard to hit the cheeks sometimes, but this puts the M6's armor in the "troll but not reliable" range. And what are you putting up with in exchange? Pathetically weak side armor, low top speed, and the fact that this is the tallest tank in the entire game.

I don’t have the tank, but in my experience it’s not good. The turret is weak and the sides are he able. It’s super tall and it has bad camo, so it’s not hiding in many places. There’s also the little known trick of shooting through the turret ring. All together it’s a bad tank and while the deal is good overall I’d save for a better tank.

Tallest tier 8.  
    The AMX M4 Mle 54 is taller 
 

But from the M6A2E1 Exp standpoint being tall isn’t always bad there are times where being tall let’s you shoot it to people and absolutely clobber their roof armor even with HE 


It’s a tank that needs to be hulldown, use depression and keep its sides and rear covered no matter what. 
  I think it was way more solid when it first came out, now most people know where to aim to pen the turret even frontally. 
 

I think it is still a decent tank - but could definitely use a frontal armor buff. As now there are a number of other tanks that do it’s job much better now.  
 

It is a massively powerful rammer though.

It's not the best, but I think it's fun. The gun feels comfortable for a heavy, and you'll get some bounces with it. It's been powercreeped for sure. Still my main moneymaker for a lack of other options atm

I love the ones that need it most.

It may be tall ... but that's how it shoots over certain obstacles and boulders, just jockey back & forth ... 


Saw one yesterday shooting away uncontested over the boulders at the entrance to mines.
