Is the gun handling as bad as the Challenger? I rage sold that and am waiting for slow as downs syndrome WG to give out tourney gold so I can free exp past it.

 

Pleeeeeeease tell me it handles slightly better than a 105derp.

Vert stab isn't mountable but dispersion on track movement is fine (0.28 to rhm 0.22) and turret is too slow to notice dispersion on turret movement.  Unfortunately, the aim time is bad even with gld, food and crew skills.

In your opinions will it surely be nerfed? Like is it Hellcat OP or just OP in good hands?

 

I am just sick of waiting to long to get things like 183`s and other OP tanks before they are nerfed. If its a sure thing to be nerfed I will hurry and get it before the 3 patch nerf period.

This tank so far for me is worse than the Challenger. Gun bloom and aim time is very bad and there is no option for a vstab. Lack of gun depression really kills the tank I could peek some hills at least in the challenger in this its like a chinese medium. Hopefully the upgraded guns make this tank better.

Wow just unlocked the 105 this tank is a riot to play now completely different tank. If you have free xp skip the 20pdr its garbage. The hesh ammo and apcr ammo is a perfect match for this tank! The last 125k in this tank will be an easy grind.

Anyone else had time to run this? 

 

Is the speed and 105 worth the dep, poor hp and gun handling?

Yes. Very much yes. It takes some getting used to, but the tank is incredible. Im not sure if incredible is enough to be worth grinding the mediocre Achilles and cancer Challenger, but on its own the tank wows me. Reminds me of some kind of cross between a Rhm-150 and a 416. Somewhat derpy gun and clumsy/fragile chassis, but great hardstats and the gun and very mobile.

 

Currently one of the best T8 TDs, up there with the JP2.

Wargaming need to get it's shit together and stop adding obvious OP tanks.

I'm greatly considering stopping the grind at the Charioteer as it looks like the best tank in the line. The tier IX and X tanks just doesn't appeal to me, whatsoever.

If they didnt add this one tank this would be the most pathetic line ever released

 

Maybe they should learn to add tanks that are actually balanced.

 

All the previous lines they've added have been pure mistakes. WT line especially.

At least this is not so blatantly OP. It still takes some skill to leverage a glass cannon like that. It's a sort of downtiered PTA with better DPM.

Unless you're spammimg HESH fulltime that is. Then it becomes opopopopopopopop

That has nothing to do with incompetence and everything with marketing.

 

Every line WG releases features op and up tanks by design! It simply isn't in WG economical interest to release balanced lines. Op tanks are the hooks that make customers pay real money. Release a bland line of perfectly balanced tanks and people won't cry "gimme, gimme". What makes a line profitable is a well thought through mixture of annoyingly underwhelming tanks and extremely desirable ones. Usually you will find the latter at tier VIII and/or X while the former seem to drop most commonly at tier VII. Tier VII is the perfect place to introduce a crappy tank (Challenger, A-44, Sturer Emil, ...) because at this tier the required xp is starting to get considerable (meaning the grinds become painful enough to incite people to spend real money in order to free-xp past them). Moreover, most paying customers reach tier VII whereas many never get a tier X.

Yes. 

 

I just can't fathom the logic of how bad the Challenger is, but I can see how it genuinely fits with purposefully making a vehicle soooo shit that people buy some gold to skip. I can't think of any other reason. Fuck WG for the things they do. 

 

Unless they are incompetent, the only way you'd introduce the Chally in this state is if you barely play the game. Any player worth a damn can immediately see the Chally is literally a worse in every aspect Comet. Why introduce anything that has literally no benefit? Oh right. Freexp.

I will also stop at charioteer and build some crew on it, pretty nice tank.

Performing just slightly below 3k average damage at the moment and

hope to crush the mark again, still no one close on vbaddict. :doge:

I personally use Rammer, Optics, Vents and am running 90% winrate. Makes it pretty great at vision control, which is a nice thing to add to your repertoire. GLD is a bit of an oddity to me - the bloom is really bad, but the aimtime is fairly low. I'm not sure how effective that makes GLD.

Yeh movement camo seems pretty good. Shooting camo is clearly bugged, either someone in wg fucked up or web page uses wrong data.
