Looking at your stats, it's very possible to know that even you buy it or not, you are not able to play it effectively.

I love mine, and I've been playing it a lot recently to grind credits for an Object 140...

 

Positives

- Extremely good credit making, I'm making around 40k on a 2000 damage win with a standard account. 

- Good alpha, this thing can 2 shot a handful of tier 5s and I believe tier 6 TDs

- Troll armor, it will easily bounce anything that goes to the mantle with the exception of L7 variants and a few other tier 9 tanks, and the hull will bounce almost any tier 6 tank and a few tier 7 tanks.

- Traverse speed is very good, and you will be able to counter a CoD unless it's a light tank or a 2v1 situation 

Negatives 

- RoF is dissapointing compared to PC, and it has pretty low DPM for a tier 7 TD. In an endgame situation it can really screw you up if you don't think 2 steps ahead

- Penetration isn't great, it's a very MM dependent tank. Tier 9 games are painful and you have to get the sides of tier 9 heavies or hope they're stock for you to have a chance at getting through the front

- Speed and acceleration aren't great, it takes a while to get to a speed where you can flank before the rest of your team crumbles

- Accuracy is super troll, sometimes you will hit your snapshots in the best spot possible and set your target on fire 2 times in a row, other times you will miss fully aimed shots 

- Bloom when moving or traversing is awful and it will hurt you if you don't spot and shoot

- -4 gun depression is one of the worst values in the game at the moment, and it makes it hard to take advantage of the near-autobounce frontal agle when going over a hill.

 

Overall I think it's a great tank, but it requires forward thinking, map knowledge, and patience if you want to use it to its fullest. If you need a lot of credits fast, this tank is pretty good for a tier 7.

He has a better WR  in tds, than he does in other types, but no offense that isn't saying much, before I spent anymore money I would do some tank rehab and get my stats up,  you have climbed the tiers to fast. I would recommend you watch this video.

It's your money but you would be wasting it. Tanks nothing special. Get the new lines tier 7 and you will be just fine

It dominated during the -1/+1 experiment, but it's not as dominant when facing tier 9s. But they released this thing not that long after the first release, so maybe they're planning on bringing it into the tech tree soon. I say: maybe.

^ Gotta derp around in Tier 7 before the inevitable nerf! ^

Just another demo account, nothing to see here

Commando,

 

I hope you don't take the criticism from others to heart. But, It may be in your best interest to do the following:

 

Also, I would consider starting over. You are going to get very frustrated trying to get your winrate above 50% for a LONG..... Time.  In the end, you'll be glad you did. Best of luck!

  1. Find a clan that can support you
  2. Play more in platoons, and look at the winrate of your toon mate. Don't just platoon with anyone.
  3. in Mines - Rush the hill
  4. slow your game down, your are dying way to often
  5. DO NOT RUN AND CAP BASE AT START OF MATCH
  6. Watch those videos for help:
    1. https://www.youtube....ser/concep2121/
    2.  http://forum.wotblit...utube-channels/
  7. Know the weak-spots of tanks. I can't tell you how many times when I started out I was bouncing shots.
  8. Try the Russian TD line.
  9. Sidescrap, sidescrap, sidescrap.......
  10. Avoid the Japanese line

For other people that are curious, I just played a game in this, and I'm feeling this will be a good credit grinder like people have said. The alpha is great which makes high dmg games easy, which equals credits. With two fuel provisions, this thing is as fast a mediums. A fast moving high damaging tank is good for both credits and carrying games. I haven't gotten into a tier 9 game yet, so I'll chime back in once I get more feel on this thing.

Having 2 accounts violates the EULA. I'd delete one if I where you. Support can help you delete one.

Do yourself a favor and remove from this thread any and all references to a second account.

 

Go do it now.

I liked it when it first came out.  And a couple months ago, after the Christmas break (January or February?) I had a 10 game win streak in it.  I assumed it was Russian Bias but then it also happened to me in my Panther 2 so I'm pretty sure it was magic.

 

I tried it this morning but didn't play it too well.  I'm assuming it's still pretty good but you may need more prammo cause of the IS-3 Defenders.


I love kemping bush

Indeed. Just answer the guy's question instead of telling him how much he sucks. He's better than 99% of the playerbase by just being here.

 

Anyway...

 

I'm a well-known SU-122-44 fanboy, so I'm pretty biased, but it's a pretty decent lil TD. Pretty quick, and packs what is essentially a better version of the IS-6's gun on a more mobile and lower-tier chassis. Angling, particularly when you feel the enemy is about to fire, will bounce a ton of shots off the well-sloped armour. You can play it sorta like a medium tank


I sometimes drive Warships too.
