    Sapros got a reaction from Manic_Wombat in Chieftain, FV215b replacement   
    I fully agree about the 215b having reliable armor. You can count on never bouncing anything remotely well aimed and on every lower plate hit lighting you up. 
    If it makes you happy considering the Cheiftain bad just because it's different, go right ahead. But expecting each newly released tank to be superior to the old ones is... naive to say the least.
    I for one am saving my judgement for when we can actually play it....

    Just because I have't played it on my main account doesn't mean I don't have several hundred fights in it.  And I'm not talking about the test server either.
    Whatever, let's just get our hands on it and then draw some conclusions.

    Sapros got a reaction from THE_RETARDED_ONE in T49 getting... something?   
    You should have waited for him to facehug before firing the first time. Or maybe you had HE loaded and were afraid of being spashed. Then the secound shell should have been AP and instead of backing up you should have faced hugged him.
    Regardless, bad RNG/user error isn't a good reason to hate a tank methinks. But whatever floats your boat.

    Sapros got a reaction from Roku in Jagdtiger 8.8 Removed From Store   
    The 88 was my very first T8 premium. So in some ways I'm sad to see it go. However...
    I just don't see how can anyone have fun in this thing. I mean, sure, under ideal circumstances it can be formidable. Going hulldown holding off half the enemy team feels epic and makes ridiculous amouts of credits. 
    Harsh reality is you either get zerged, artied, prem shelled thought the superstructure, or everything's just dead by the time you reach the frontlines. Enduring one disappointing/boring game after the other in hopes of finally getting your chance to shine just isn't appealing to me.
    This is just my own personal experience with the thing. I'm by now at peace with the fact I simply can't handle some vehicles properly. I'm sure some players are able to get a lot more from it than I am. Kudos to them.

    "- Storm confirms: FV215b (120) will be changed to Chieftain Mk.3 and FV4202 to Centurion Action X"
     
    Unless there has been an update to the issue that I haven't seen.

    Sapros got a reaction from TheEmptyLord in is t10 worth the slog?   
    Aye, there's definitely a bigger gap, skill wise, between tiers VII and VIII than what you're used to. 
    Mistakes tend to be swiftly and severly punished, since you not only face better players, but also increasingly more high alpha/autoloaders guns. 
    Tank HP goes up significantly, whereas the dpm doesn't (not that much anyway), meaning killing a tank by yourself won't be as easy as you're used to. Hence carrying games becomes increasingly harder. 
    So indeed, playing lower tiers is "fun", because you can sometimes be extremely careless/agressive and somehow get away with it. 
    I also suggest you give higher tiers a try. Learning to do well there means you'll be able to dominate lower tiers with ease.
