I have an 81% WR in the Obj 140, so I don't think I'm playing the tank egregiously wrong. But I've been full health ammo racked a total of 5 times now, and half-health ammo racked at least two times on top of that. Sometimes it's not things you can control like overexposing; a hidden 268 could snipe you on the right and make that bomb go off, or you could be brawling, get tracked, then get hit from the side, etc.
I still run Optics over Wet Racks or Vents (which I personally dislike using because I notice no differences even when I try to find one), but if you use Wet Racks, there's nothing wrong with that.
Only 81? I think there is room for improvement there.
I believe you are correct that full health ammo racks do happen, and will happen more as you go up in tiers, both because of TD skill, and bigger, better ammo rounds in said TD...
That being said, you admit that you run rammer, V-stabs, and optics...
Do you feel that Optics every match outweigh the 5 full health and 2 half health ammo racks you've had in the past 450~ odd battles you've run the tank in?
In my T44, I was getting ammo racked maybe once every 75 games... ish... Maybe more like 50... It's been a while now.
You're numbers say about once in every 65 games in your OBJ 140.
So the question becomes "Wet Ammo Rack for 1 out of every (we'll say) 50 games" versus "Optics helping you every game," which is more beneficial?
I also believe what I was commenting about was the statement "You need a wet ammo rack" for Russian mediums like they are a time bomb, and that fixes the problem. I disagree with the statement of "need" a wet ammo rack. If you are getting ammo racked even once every ten games, that may be more of a player problem then a tank problem.
However, I will quite humbly admit that I am no where near the master of Russian mediums, and will bow out to your superior skill. So, Yoda, do you advise Wet Racks in that third equipment spot? Because I've got the T-shirt and the hose ready. I'm all about that competition.
