Just point and click. Load prammo and over angle your armor because your side is only 1mm less than the front.

 

Will try. Thanks all!

 I would, if I had gold to convert into free xp......:(

 

In that case, I would switch to another grind until I had enough free xp built up from just playing lol. I always keep a bunch of grinds going at once for multiple reasons. It just comes in handy. I am grinding 10 lines at once right now. All spread across the tiers too. If someone wants to platoon I always have something to drive where the xp I gain won't go to waste.

Please tell my friend this. He plays WoWS, and pokes fun at me for grinding 11-12 lines at once, saying that i "move at a snail's pace" baka.

I managed to B1 OK

 

Key stuff:

- Yeah.  Prammo.  Lots of it.  Switch to it whenever a pen is iffy.  Luckily, it's somewhat cheap prammo-wise... the tank will still regularly lose credits.

- Use cover, don't get caught in the open.  Angling, sidescraping, and hull-down are the primary tactics... always keep moving, even when doing these things.  You have a weak spot on your frontal armor, and your turret isn't super-strong, so make all those things harder to hit.  The gun depression is very good and the turret it miniscule, so hull down works very well.

- Drive wheels.  Shoot them.  Perma-track opponents whenever possible, while doing damage.

- Prioritize enemies that can easily pen you... TDs, tier 5 mediums and heavies, DW2's, etc.  Don't waste your time picking off some tier 3 autoloader pinging shots harmlessly off your ample tuckus, save it for later.

 

...and that's about it.  KV-1's can be penned in the lower plate and side, so if you come upon one in a sidescrape or hull-down position (which you likely won't because barely anybody knows anything at tier 5), pull back and move to a different angle or target.

Be happy to. Or you could just show him the comment. ;)

The gun sucks on this tank, even the prammo struggles against KV-1 and hetzer...

 

You should be able to pen the lower glacis of a hetzer and your RoF should allow you to flank it by tracking it.  Similar to the KV-1, find the weak spots.   It does struggle with some highly armoured beasts but you can also ram their tracks then circle.  

 

Is your crew max?  I found the tank near identical to the PZ B2 when fully upgraded (quite OP in most games).

 

The Arl is indeed better. 

 

Just to ask, are you aware of side scraping?  Maybe look up some youtube videos on how to play heavies.  I don't know  your skill level but maybe that's it? 

 

Hope that helps

U have to shoot prammo a lot in B1. As for the angling, DW2 is probably shooting prammo too. The 50mm gun isn't bad, so he can probably just pen you.

This is good.

 

I never had a problem with it once it was tops and the Panzer B2 is pretty easy to drive.  But yeah, 40-45% prammo might be required here.
