For the past few months I have been working my way through the UK Cruiser III line of tanks.  Just picked up the Centurion I and have been playing abysmally.  So far I've survived 2 of 31 battles with a 32 victory percentage. Avg damage caused is 353.  That's anemic.  I've destroyed 3 vehicles with a .1 vehicles destroyed percentage.  

 

I know this line is difficult especially after it was nerfed, but I'm downright Pissed Off.  When I get hit, the opposing player is scoring hps of 4,5,6 or 700 while I'm only getting hit points of 160.  There is no way I can compete with that.  And flanking is out of the question as it's just too slow.   I'd hope the gun would have gotten better as the tier increases but I don't see any difference between the Cent and the comet or Cromwell.  I feel like I'm in a tier 5 tank.  

 

Any thoughts.  I'm about ready to sell all and be done with  UK tanks.    Thanks all

It's a support medium with decent DPM and penetration on its top gun.  You'll need to be hiding your hull as it's quite weak and poke ridges as the mantlet is actually OK ...  Don't brawl with it and don't trade shots, you'll come out on the losing end ...

Hiding your hull is essential.  Abuse terrain whenever possible.  Once you get the improved turret it bounces a lot of shots.  The fun starts when you get the 20 pdr.  Great penetration and accuracy.

My cent 1 has 66.20% WR at 61 battles. Pretty close to my Comet.

They share the same play style, you need always find good hull down position, pee-ka-boo a lot.

When more reds rush to you than you can handle, just relocate asap.

Go up the IS3 line instead. It’s easy to use and fun. The cent is a hard to tank play these days.

The Cent I was a tank that I had a love/hate relationship with. It's not that hard to play if you know how to stay back and support as much as possible because your RoF and reload are great. Don't try to brawl with it. You're big as a heavy and your armor is bad so you don't rush forward.

 

Honestly, you'll find more interest with the Centurion 7/1 if you're still ok with playing it after the nerfs. It's still great IMO but its not as good as it used to.

No offense, but it isn't the tank, but the driver.

If you hate the cent 1, consider shelving it for a while and moving on to something else.  You'll hate the 7/1 too.

I really struggled with the Centurion, but did passably well with the Caernarvon. Learn to hang back, with a top speed of 40mph you’re more than fast enough to get into trouble, but not nearly quick enough to escape.

Are you hating it stock or fully upgraded?  If you’re stock...

 

But with top equipment it’s actually a very good 2nd line sniper.  Use that typically British gun depression and RoF from a ridgeline to pick apart anybody trying to brawl with your teammates. Drive enemy TDs back behind their hard cover. Just stay off the front line and don’t try and trade shots with Heavies. 


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

You're probably playing it stock. It is a horrid stock grind, it's worse than the Comet before you get it maxed. However, when you do... it's an average tank at best. Hang back, snipe, go hull down, and you won't do very poorly.
