kaneaaa posted a topic in Metagame DiscussionI was just thinking, when I talk to some other players about the new tier 8 tank releases, a few are quite cold about buying a tier 8 premium, not because the tank itself is bad, but because the mm is hard on tier 8s. Do you think that the current mm has lead to reduced sales in tier 8 premiums, which seem to be the main marketing strategy wg has been going for (judging by how many they are churning out)...
Initially this appeared to be a simple question to me - the CDC is not a tank with preferential matchmaking, where the FCM is - indicating the CDC is better. This would mean removing the mm in SH would make the CDC a better choice. But then I heard an opinion proclaiming the FCM is better, so I looked at the stats: FCM has 1500 HP, CDC 1400, while CDC has much better manoeuvrability, gun depression, some soft stats on the identical gun. However the CDC will almost never bounce, whereas the the FCM certainly can pull off a bounce or two - and it has very thick tracks. (This is from experience playing the FCM) Although you can't ever expect it to bounce, and mostly it won't. One important point is that our SH is played quite regular in regards to heavies - get in position, and call focus fire. This usually consists of IS-3's, and maybe FCM/Panther8,8/Caern. In this role the FCM does well - taking hits, reloading fast to finish off tanks, providing added speed and reaction to the fight. I'm interested whether to advise people to choose a CDC or FCM in light of a more conclusive answer to this. People who have played both can obviously tell it much easier, and different SH commands may give totally different results, but any answer is welcome p.s. I don't have a CDC because I'm not made of money, so I've tried not to be too opinionated towards my beloved FCM - sorry if this has crept in!
