Upcoming ram II bundle coming back. 6 pounder gun on a Sherman (or was it m3?) chassis. Is this thing any fun for those of you who have one? Does it play anything like a Sherman (never had a Sherman btw)? How does it stack up to say the crusader, t34, or t25 German tier 5 med?

Have one, was my first Premium, loved it and did relatively well in it..... then they killed MM for Tier 5's and that gun just doesn't cut it against higher tiers.  I would recommend not getting it at this time, unless they announce the fix to MM soon.

could you give me some general specs on it? Like RoF, traverse rate, power to weight ratio, etc?

NAY!  NAY!  DON'T DO IT!  DO NOT WANT!  DO NOT WANT!

 

Let's break this tank down...  You don't have speed.  So, no COD.  You have good armor... for a medium... so kinda crummy armor for tier five.  Your penetration is lower then a grasshopper's knees.  APCR is about at it's jibbly bits.  So you're gonna bounce a lot.  You don't have the speed to get to squishy armor.  Oh, but the gun shoots pretty fast, so you can annoy people with little black triangles all over their screen.  Yay.

 

Of course all of that is my humble opinion, and I'm a Scrub.  It's not the tank, it's the tanker.

 

If I could I would give you mine just so it wouldn't sit around in my garage rusting.

I might get it just because it's a Canadian tank.

For all the reasons stated above I voted no. I got mine a long time ago for pretty cheap and I played it quite a bit back then. After it recently got buffed I took it out for a couple battles and I remembered why I stopped playing it: it's just not much fun to play.

This will be your typical American premium tank brought to you by WOT Blitz (remember the togg) This tank will be  >>> BUTT SLOW <<< just enough gun to keep you from being murdered quickly. Enough said!

The difference is though, the Tog II has a gun that is usable and you have the health pool of a tier 8 or 9. A Ram II has a gun that will bounce off other mediums and your armor, even though good for a medium, is still negligible against any tier 6.

The TOG was British... (EDIT: Is British...  It was and still is British.)

I agree, stay away.  The speed is too slow and it is not very fun

We need more options as far as American premiums that's for sure! T34 makes good credits t2 is just fast and fun. Super p I won't look at it even. I like pershing but this tank is a joke of a medium! Instead of 1776 we should have had something else. Idk no biggie. The American line itself has alot of good tanks. Would be nice to get one with some credit earning potential and and pref mm!

Both my personal experience and WOTBstars tank averages disagree with this statement.  Perhaps you have it backwards?

No. I own both. The Ram II has better stats across the board, it is more fun to play, and can do way more damage. I fully regret buying the T14. The Ram II? Not my favorite purchase, but I don't regret it.

Played about 25 games on my son's account to get him some needed cash one weekend, and I really liked it.

Reminds me of a Panther kinda - it's not a brawling medium, it's sniping medium that will bounce some incoming if angled well.

And it makes credits very well if you win. 

Seems a love/hate kinda tank.

 

And stealth, I'd love to take yours off your hands :-)

Power to Weight Ratio 16.04 14.65

 

What's most important here is that I can reliably hit targets on the move in my Ram II, but I cannot in my T14. That's a huge downer in the T14 because the hull armor is awful and so is the traverse speeds.
