I woke up this morning, logged in for a couple random pubs before I went to work and saw this tank in an in-game advert. I checked it out and was pleased to see the Archer finally introduced. I bought it for the $12 US and believe it is worth half of what WG is selling it for.


-Poor forward speed (fine, I'll drive it backwards)

 

-New tank syndrome (Players troll you because they think you are driving it backwards to be funny)

 

-20mm of tin foil on all sides

 

-camo rating in soft stats is abysmal

 

I did a full review here:

To reviewer: ALWAYS run the nation consumable when you want to use the camo rating effectively. Sadly this machine is open-top, so vents are not an option. :(

 - You're right - Changing to pudding next time I log in. Shame on me for not thinking about that.  I'll edit my post.


-  Please KV2 often. Just remember you'll have to snipe. These Archer drivers would be smart not to brawl. If they do you can ram them to death.

Angry Connor has insane rate of fire and excellent pen, it can outshoot and outmatch any tank it comes face to face with and it can totally destroy tier 7 when sniping. The 17 pdr gun has superb accuracy for long range shots, its difficult to use at first then when u get used to it , it becomes the perfect TD!

I think I'm still getting used to it. When the MM gods are favorable I've had some success. I'm having to rethink and take early-game positioning seriously to have the success you mentioned above. I think the problem is ME. I recommend to less skilled players that they avoid the purchase unless they're huge TD fans. 

 

Thanks for the feedback.  You killed me in an IS once. I don't remember what I was driving.........Hellcat maybe?

I know of a SUPERB spot on Castilla for this tank. Should be ridiculous as I watch enemy tanks wonder how they aren't shooting me (there's a popular TD spot in-line with my spot from the POV of the enemy).

How is there not a pot of gold in this bundle. And the food consumable should be whiskey for the keg.

Platoon with me. I'll get on soon. I have seen two people ever use it without me telling them, both of which happened AFTER I started using it every game. Good chance I could have been the first. I hope to get a YouTube channel started, and have that spot included.

 

OP, is this a review or a complaint? I can't tell...

+1 for getting a review out so quickly. I hope this helps people decide given the short window for purchase at the original price. I'm taking a pass.

[BRSKT] may or may not be recruiting you.

It's a review with a very vague implied suggestion that certain people avoid getting it.
