I just got the VIC and I've had the R15.  Empty an entire load of shells on the R35 and point to the very minimal green areas and get zero pen.   I think this over armored tank makes an unbalanced tier.  4 vics were trying to kill it and nothing, not any loss of hp...

What did you expect to happen? You drive a tank that has barely better pen rate than a T7 and go after the best armored tier 2 tank of the game and expect to defeat it? Love the R35.

What’s even funnier is I got my Pz. 38H out in a battle, with 5 VICs, a T7 CC, and a Pz. Jag. Was just no fair at all lol

  After I saw this thread I had to experience it for myself. I never saw a VIC tank pen an R35 and a D1 I saw only penned it twice in 7 shots, some of which were side shots. I watched an R35 sit in the cap circle and fight 4 VIC’s. Not only couldn’t he drive, he couldn’t aim and he couldn’t decide which one to shoot. I tried to coach him but apparently he couldn’t read and fight at the same time. (Soft side skills most of us take for granted) They were all so bad it ended in a draw. I got killed playing that stupid free tetrarch I won. (Sell it boys if you got it, it ain’t worth a [edited])

 

  The T18 bounces everything from the VIC if you keep them in front of you. It was fun for a few games but I got bored. Tier II holds my interest about about as much as watching paint dry.

I call the R-35 the "Baby KV" LOL

It's killable, but I'm not sharing the secret. :trollface:

Ha, ha, ha, if all tanks you didn´t kill are going to be nerfed... It´s your fault for using a paper tank with a paintball cannon.

 

Yesterday I used my R-35 for seal clubbing hordes of Vick out there. Also my Pz 38 H and my T 18. My kill ratio was 7 to 1, and the 1 was because it was a battle where I confronted Tier 3 too.

 

Use a real tank and try harder.

Yeah, I have plenty of tier 9's  but play low tiers just for fun when the MM seems corked on upper tiers at certain times of the day...  Just saying that perhaps the R35 shouldn't be a tier 2.   What the heck, the Vic and the 7 are free tanks, and the 7 can usually damage a majority of tanks, but when you get something completely red and you don't get any AT's on your side, the game can't end by just 1 way.

It’s not the R35’s fault that the T7 and the Light VIC are armed with heavy machine guns. Once the frenzy of free tank stupid wears off it’ll be safe to drive them again as you’ll have some “real” guns on your team. Till then leave ‘em both in your garage unless you are fan of futility.

The only impact a Vick had on my R-35 was to damage thectreads. However no HP was lost.

 

For 3 or 4 days the R-35 is a seal clubbers fantasty come true.  You only have to kill other R-35s, T-18s, etc. When only hordes of Vicks are left alive all you have t do is get to base and protect your tracks with cover.

The R35 isn't the only tank that can bounce the wienie cars. There are quite a few tanks that can dispose of those machine gun toting weakmobiles.

Panzer II comes to mind and is more mobile.

The panzer II has weak spots on the front that can be penned relatively easy I think

Nah.

I used a Panzer II to help end the T7 invasion a few months ago. The front has more armor than the 27mm pen of the machine guns and that's not even angled.

But the sides and rear of the Pz. II are easy pens for the VIC and the T7 so it doesn’t really have the same invulnerability to swarming that the R35 does.

yup. What I meant was that you'd need four VICs perfectly coordinated in the attack to ram the miscreant.

 

Perfectly coordinated attacks. Happens every day in wotb...
