Anyone played these? I only have played Predator and was very lucky to get it. However, it has proven a disappointment. It’s lacking in certain areas. How does Vindicator fair? Also you guys have any ideas for buffs or changes they should make to both or either of these Warhammer tanks? I’ve debated some myself but am unsure how far to go on said ideas.

Vindicator is fun IMO but far from OP. Front armor looks good but can be penned easily by experienced players. 13ish sec reload is great for a tank with one-shot ablilty, but the HEAT stinks, as does the HE-able side armor and horrid mobility. 

Predator is meh. Too big and not good enough firepower, mobility ,or armor to be effective.

Both are lacking in Bushka's three key characteristics: gun depression (awful), DPM (somewhat decent), and penetration. Take that as you will, of course depending on how much you agree with Bushka.

As for buffs: Give both a mobility buff, fix the Vindicator's armor profile, maybe an armor buff for Predator, and give Vindicator AP.

Well I do disagree with Bushman that Tiger II is a heavium and that VK 45.02 A is bad. Tiger II is a true heavy except on armor. VK is the heavium. Though VK could use better penetration on it’s gun. Tiger II is hard to work with. Anyway I think if they won’t give Predator some degree of gun depression it should get better armor. Especially the side armor. It’s side armor is not quite good enough. It probably should have slightly better penetration or a faster clip reload. They did buff it’s mobility on traverse speeds I think and decreased it’s chances of having engine fires but that isn’t enough. It’s still a meh tank at best. Now Vindicator I don’t know about. I just have to take your word for it on Vindicator.

Vindicator sucks a**. Can't point gun down at all, sides are paper thin, and it only fires HEAT, which means it cant go through tracks, or clotheslines.

 

 

Predator has problems that fortunately double as perks. Its height means it cant shoot anything within 20 meters of itself, but it also means it can shoot over a surprising amount of solid cover.

 

It's just a punching bag if it sees tier 8 though

Nether one is much fun — not worth getting.

Disagree. With all the flat as hell maps around now, screw gun depression. Vindicator will rock maps like Himmelsdorf and Dynasty Pearl.

Yeah, Predator needs better armor and/or a bit better gun depression.

I have had pretty decent success with both so far.  Predator is just amazing when played well and a decent supporting team.  The Vindicator is just a rolling derp box when as the aforementioned posts does not occur or detract.  Each is very situational and team dependent.  This is how the game/tanks are supposed to be played.  One tank should not able to carry an entire team, which we all know does happen to much.

As for them being in T8, yes that is the only real failing.  They are food for 80% of the T8's out there, then again this is become the new norm anyways.  MM loves to uptier these two tanks, at least for me, and I play support roles until I am not going to be targeted by 5 enemy guns at once.

Ah well. Whether they buff them or not doesn’t matter to me anymore. I’m probably gonna just quit for good like I had planned to when I had my 2 old accounts deleted. WoT Blitz is not very fun to me anymore. Probably never was very fun to me. Whether I’m a newbie, noob, or average I can’t find fun and enjoyment in the game very often. Best to just quit and break myself away from this game. Be better off to collect models of the tanks.

Wait so the weak spot on the side of the shield is a bug? Cuz it's frustrating. I got penned there easily when in tier 8
