M6 armor is good but it is all flat, it needs at least pretty good frontal armor and have weak side armor as balancing---OR--- have same armor profile, but have stronk turret like T29. Anyone agree?

Personally I think it's OK where it is - a buff would be nice but it's pretty good. The 90mm is a good gun and it has good mobility

A mantle as thick as a T29 wouldn’t make any sense

Right..?

I suggest buffing the mobility of the tank by a tad and improving gun characteristics to make the tank competitive for its tier.

It’s fine, just not in the hands of those who don’t believe in angling their tank......

Sides are already crap. Dont nerf them any more. Maybe buff the hull armor in certain parts, kind of like a midtier Russian heavy in a way (KV-1, KV-1S, T-150). Or maybe like a stronger jumbo. Idk just a thought.

Im not saying making it AS strong as the t29's, but like a kv-1 where its not impossible to pen but its hard

I don’t see it.  For a Tier VI Heavy it’s got decent frontal armor and a viable turret. The hull sides are weak but the only gun that can overmatch them is the 152mm.  Mobility is solid and even traverse speeds aren’t awful.

 

What exactly is wrong with this tank that careful play doesn’t cover?


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

Even angling doesn't work that well, because the side armor is paper.

No you dont side scape in it.  You angle its flattish front and hope you catch a few in the tracks

My best tier 6 heavy, the tank I use to break a losing streak. Shoot, ram, and shoot again and you can kill many tanks.

You can do this in any tank, doesn't even have to be a heavy. That doesn't make the armor good, unless your opponents don't know how to aim.
