I feel no shame in spamming Annihilators. Part of what brings me joy in this game is pissing other players off. Annihilators are perfect for inducing red tears. 


You need to shower more.

There are other ways of pissing reds off rather than spamming op tanks. For example,  being actually good at the game.

 

I see no problem with doing both.  Be good and play OP tanks. That way when your Anni toon comes across another Anni toon you wipe the floor with them and the rst of their team.

Vickers CR is getting nerfed in next update, though, yeah? I haven't bought the V-Light yet - how does it compare?

Turret armor nerf for the CR. It will still be really good.

Well.   Since you haven’t really played tier 9 or 10.  Let’s go off his tier 7 and 8 stats vs yours.  Which his are overwhelmingly better than yours overall.   So if he’s just a “good” player.  What does that make you? 

Don't know what's your point here. Are you asking me to rate my own stats ? Then I think Im a not too bad player but not that good. I do not own NA account, here is my main: https://www.blitzsta.../awesome_guy290

As a matter of fact, the people that annihilator toons should git gud.

Do not have an average tier of 6-8 if you want to cry.

Tier 7 heavies are still really strong-T 29 and Tiger P have excellent frontal armor profiles and the T 29 is a hull down monstrosity, Tiger I is in a good spot after the armor and hp buff... Emil I is still outstanding. The Chi To SPG is overcooked still. As examples. There are plenty out there that can stand up to premium vehicles and still perform well.

Don't forget the T25 AT, T71, M41 Bulldog, LTTB. Tier 7 is bleeding with very strong Tech Tree tanks.  I think it's ridiculous people swear off an entire tier because "oh no I may come across an Annihilator on red"

The biggest crime the Anni has is its ugly and spammed. I wouldn't mind it as much if it was nice to look at.

It’s not just the burst damage-it’s that the burst gives you three opportunities for module damage, faster than most people can react to repair it. When you work out the math, if you can sock all three rounds away in somebody’s ammo rack, you’ve got just under a 1/3 chance of detonating them. 
 

Also, the counter for precision fire shots can be active by the first round of the second burst, which isn’t as bad considering it only applies to the one round.

Has downsides too, difficult to aim 2nd and 3rd shot. Fast tanks can evade even 3 shells. Strong tanks can bounce all 3 too.

Happy to hear there are other people out there like me. I luv it when I join a game and the Reds are spamming things like "DIE P2W". It is at that point that I know I am going to have a fun game...win or lose.


BOLO [Boh-Low] verb. US Military slang meaning Failure. Example: Dude, you bolo'd the sh!t out of that. Now sarge is going to smoke the sh!t out of you until you die.

The benefit of making reds angry is that they become tilted. I don’t get charged down by borsigs that often in other vehicles but for some reason after eating a three HE burst out from cover they come, or they start raving in chat. Now that I’ve got a tier 8 beat to crap and tunneling me, my teammates don’t have to worry about it.

Can’t complain too much as I am guilty of playing OP tanks, but man, tier 6 and 7 suck. Tried to take my Easy 8 out, and the annihilator spam is ridiculous. Playing in a tier 7 isn’t as bad, but it’s still annoying.  
RNG is rigged !
