I'm trying to play this tank decently for the contest, and it's a complete pile of trash. It has a lot of good factors, but they're all in a combination that leads to an atrocious tank. Gun? Good. Gun depression and elevation? Garbage. Armor? Good. Mobility? Garbage. 

 

Nothing works for this tank. You can hold a corner, but if there's even the smallest slope on the ground beneath you, your gun won't point down low enough to be able to shoot. The turret face is flat and people loading gold ammo go through it pretty consistently. It traverses nearly at the speed of a Maus and drives slower than a Maus. It's outdated, outclassed, and irrelevant. If you get circled, you don't have enough alpha to end the circler if you even get a chance to shoot him. And while you're at it, buff the Churchill 1, because that's a pile of junk as well. 

 

And to all of you who have good stats in it (I have pretty good stats in the Churchill 1 and I still think it sucks), would you actually drive this for fun? The KV-1 is fun, the KV-2 is fun, the KV-1S is fun, the T1 Heavy is fun, the VK 36.01H is fun, and the Kuro is fun. With this tank, you get left behind by your team, who usually consists of at least 4 light tanks and medium tanks, you can't go to any towns because this game demands that you go to the hills unless you want to die alone, and you get circled by most tanks you'll see. At least the Maus has gun depression and big alpha.

I never undertood why the churchill 1 gets so much hate, I had a bit of fun while grinding it. (I woudn't play more battles than needed, but might go for the 100s)

 

Drive it to the cap, and let the fight come to you, and that quinda worked for me.

 

68.75% wr

2.0 dmg ratio

3.14 kdr

0.8 spot ratio, well, isn't hard to explain why.

1k avg dmg.

 

If you buff it, on the right hands, it would be op.

Not a huge fan of the Churchills.  The weak face on the Church 1 is annoying as ****. 

Just another disgruntled veteran.

I don't like Churchill (despite >70% WR from solo noob days). 

 

But how are you going to buff it? The main problem is top speed and then perhaps gun depression, which makes it difficult for Churchill VII to contribute to the battles as effective as other heavies of the tier. But top speed should be made comparable to historical tanks. Churchill WAS slow. At the same time, high gun depression would be contrived due to its existing geometry.

 

I think Churchill VII can use better gun handling. As difficult as it is to find opportunity to shoot in Churchill, it should be allowed to make snap shots much more frequently.
