this is is where I am in this tank. I am descent player but this is how the first 25 games have gone. No way this tank is what everyone is saying. All I hear is praise about the glory of the arl44. I am here to warn everyone, it isn't what they say it is. You can't carry and if wot has it in for you you will suffer and suffer I have. 

 

The teams are pure TRASH which makes this tank unplayable.

I don't mean to be harsh, but if you are gonna complain about the ARL 44, you should have selected the ARL 44 so that we can see the rest of the stats. Makes me think you are hiding something to support your point. Perhaps you are hiding a hideous average damage stat.

You are yoloing in it. I think the fact that its a fast heavy has you in the wrong mindset. Play it more like a medium.

Good point. Show us your ARL stats, so we can have a look see. Im pretty average or worse at this game, but I love this tank! How far along are you with the upgrades?
These are my numbers in the short time Ive had it.

Me thinks the OP is wrong, but it could just be me.

This is the first tank in this line I actually like.  (Yes, I don't care for the Tier V, but that is a good tank too)

Looks like your just not surviving enough to carry a battle. Numbers are good as far as average damage. Maybe be a tad less aggressive early in battle? And yes, recent team make up isnt helping, but its not because the tank stinks.

Totally agree War_Child! First one in the line I like as well. The tier 5 is OP at the moment, but still I didnt care for it. The ARL is fantastick in my simpleton mind, lol

Oh and, nice game BTW!

nice game for you, I am not having these games. I am getting rolled. All I can say is I have yet to experience anything that would make this this tank can do what you just posted.

Thank you.


SIDE NOTE: At the end of that battle, it was just me versus the Tier 7 platoon.   I had 60% health whereas the BP had 1/3 health and the Tiger P had full health.  While I'm running away/repositioning (so I don't have to take 2 tanks on at once), the IS on our team who died with 0 damage is messaging me "what a coward" "stand and fight" "you suck" etc.  In order to survive, I had to track the Tiger P 3 times and back up around the corner so he couldn't 2-shot me. It was extremely hard to do while getting "suggestions" from my dead teammate.

I knew when I posted this the defenders would flock out and make it seem like I am crazy. I am here to tell you that I am a descent player (not of war child caliber) and after 25 games of misery I have not one positive feeling about this pos tank.

I dont think your crazy at all! Whats crazy is you are very good in the vast majority of your tanks, but this one seems to get to you. Wish I had the answer.

I really want the ARL; I just need to grind the cash. How expensive is the second turret in terms of research?

I hear what you are saying, and I don't necessarily disagree with your position. However, I think you need a lot more games in it before you make a final decision.  And perhaps platoon with some good players to give yourself a better chance and feel for the tank.  I suck in the Tier VII (which is why I stopped grinding the line) but I hear the Tiers 9 & 10 are worth the effort.


Evidence of my suckiness:

 

My best stats are in the ARL - which is probably why it's my current favorite in the French line.

I beg to differ, I'm running at a 65.71% WR for this tank with a recent, 7 kill Raisin. It's the best Tier VI in my humble opinion.

I have an 82.61% win-rate in mine after 69 battles with a Ras and a Kolobanovs in it, very very good tank, run 2 in a toon and you are almost unstoppable. It's in many ways a mix between an American hull-down heavy and a German side-scraping heavy, it can play both rolls but is best at hull-down and sniping with the 90mm imo.
