Grinding the Fatton and I'm wondering what turrett do people prefer on the JUMBO. Yes the stock turret has a better armor profile but you give up a lot not being able to get the top gun. What do you guys think?

stock turret. the RoF isnt THAT important considering most t7 tanks will have a problem penning the turret with anything less than 200mm pen. think about it, over the course of 60 seconds, youll give up 1-2 rounds. 

 

if you use the top turret, just play the easy 8 instead because the jumbo is just a slower easy 8 at that point.

Stock turret.

The gun isn't really that much worse than the top gun, and realistically, what's the point of playing the Jumbo if you're going to give up that much armor

The stock gun that you get with the stock turrett has the same pen as the top gun but has notable worse dispersion/rof. I honestly can't decide, maybe I'll swap back and forth to come to a conclusion.

1-2 rounds is alot when 5 out of 7 greens can't barely pen a single shot.

 

Besides, how are people getting penned so frequently with the 2nd turret anyways.  Do they just sit there and let people aim at the weakspots?

The second turret still bounces but not like the stock turret you definitely need to keep moving more. I think I'm leaning towards the top turret and gun. I like the better gun handling and dom.

I used the stock turret during my grind and was pretty happy with the results.  The M1A1 gun is good enough when u get a rammer & food.  I was usually pretty close to the front lines so dispersion was not really an issue for me.  I would have kept the Jumbo but already had a Fury at that point.

There's no point using upgraded turret as it ruins all the tank and gives a huge weakspot negating all hull armor. Better use E8 instead if you want more dpm.

I used the top turret when I played the jumbo. Play it exactly like the E8 but with more armour and abuse other meds, even tier 7's. Extra DPM with the top gun and a turret that still bounces shots if you're not completely incompetent and just sit there = OP tier 6 med.

I liked using the top turret, since the DPM and gun handling is just so much better. I couldn't stand the RoF on the stock turret, even if it was hard as a rock.

I'm running 68% in the jumbo with the top turret.  It still bounces quite a few shots if you keep moving and angling.  I'm an aggressive player in it so I really like the extra dpm.  If you're more of a sniper, use the stock turret.

I'm more of a DPM guy, so if I were you, I'd go for the top turret. More DPM is always a good thing, but if you like going hull down and hearing shells bounce off your turret, go with stock one. But IMO, I'd use top turret all the way.

I play it like a full blown heavy, extremely aggressive and always on the front line, even in tier 7 games. I use the stock turret as there is no way I would get the amount of bounces with the top turret that I get with the stock turret.

Doing the same right now, I've used the stock turret for as long as i have played the E2. As much as anyone wants to say you can wiggle the turret to make up for the MASSIVE cheek weakspots I've always been able to penetrate E2 top turrets easily and kill them, even in the days when i was sitting at 47%. if /I/ can penetrate the cheeks of the stock turret then that is a bad sign, and I'm not naive enough to think every player on the enemy team is worse than i am.
