    Hard to overstate how much better the Chrysler handles compared to the IS-M. The fact that they have similar armor profiles speaks volumes about how utterly broken the Chrysler actually is. 
    GF's gun is significantly more comfortable/reliable outside brawling range, more than enough to compensate for the decrease in alpha/dpm.
    Last but not least the Chrysler gets significantly better viewrange and bettter gun depression.
    IS-M is good, GF is retarded. my2c

    Ok, so I removed the derp to try 3 mark with the 90 or 105, whatever it is.
    Got back from my 89% slump to 93. Think I'll try the final push with the DPM gun then switch back if I can get the 95%. 
    Anyone done similar to 3 mark?

    I didn't find a thread for this tank so here goes.  I've only played a few games in it so far and I refused to play it stock because lol 175 pen in tier 10 games nice meme.
    I'm not really going to go over the stats because you nerds can look it up yourself, I'm sort of looking for other people's thoughts and impressions on the tank itself.  Do you like it? hate it? think it's mediocre? Why?
    Against tier 8's, it's hilariously good.  The side armor is too thick to be overmatched by anything and nominal thickness tends to negate the damage you get from HE spam (which has happened to me twice).  It's hard to over-angle when side-scraping since the extra T H I C C gives you a lot of wiggle room.  The curved shoulders on the front are pennable if whoever you're fighting can aim for them, but there's a sweet spot angle that lets you both hide the shoulders and still poke your gun out around the corner, while bouncing everything that doesn't have 270+ pen.  Turret is pretty strong and can bounce some crazy shots, and the single weakspot (the cupola) is so flat and tiny that hitting it is more dependent on prayers to RNG than on careful aiming.  You can pretty much ignore any tier 7's or 6's that aren't derp guns or behind you - I've had full side-on shots get bounced before from tier 7 heavies and the like, so even if you're in the open just angle yourself a bit and you're p much good to go against lower tiers.  This was my first match in it and all I did for 80% of the game was sidescrape off a building across the bridge in the south:

     
    In tier 9s, it's... okay.  Against dumber players in 9's you'll generally have no problem baiting shots into angled side armor - the lower plate, of course, is butter, and anyone who knows to aim for the shoulders will ruin your shit and probably set you on fire, but the tank is new enough that it's not a huge issue yet.  Otherwise, I generally found success by watching the flanks for our bigger guns in brawling zones and bullying lower tier heavies or keeping higher tier heavies constantly turning their guns to deal with me.  
     
    Tier 10s are generally crap but that's standard tier 8 tank matchmaking for you.  At least there's 7 tier 8 tanks on the enemy team to beat up on.  I don't have a real strategy for this yet since the thing is too slow to face off against mediums and the armor doesn't work against most tier 10 guns unless you're lucky or the enemies are bad - generally I just play it the same way I do in tier 9s, but with a more conservative and cautious approach.
     
    My main gripe with it is that the mobility is a little low - but I guess that's expected with the amount of armor it has.  It generally does reach its top speed on hard terrain (which is like, 35kmh i think) but you won't be keeping up with mediums or anything.  Oddly enough I haven't gotten shot enough to get set on fire a whole bunch yet, and while the gun depression is as bad as expected I knew what i was signing up for with a rear-turreted tank.
    For crew skills, I don't have them memorized right now but I have a fairly new crew in this - I think it's Sixth/snap/ORD/safe and then working on repairs.  Equipment loadout is Rammer/Vstab/Vents, I carry 20 AP/8 APCR/2 HE, standard consumable loadout of medkit/rep kit/AFE.
     
    Oh, and for the past week I had two 1500+ base xp games and that wasn't enough for an Ace.  Fun stuff, clearly people out there are having a lot of success with it so far.  
    What do you guys suggest for crew skills in the future after BiA and repairs?  I chose ORD just so I can get to the brawl slightly faster, but would clutch braking be a better choice?  Does it get set on fire frontally often enough to make taking Preventative Maintenance an option?
     
    How do you tend to play it in heavily tier 10 matches, or on maps where the gun depression or lack of hard cover works against you?
     
    e: lmao 504 error when I tried to post - now I understand how people keep double, triple, or even quadposting their new threads.  RIP

    Awww shit, this thread has officially broken 1000 posts.

     
    Had my 23rd (I think) ace game on Erlenberg today.  What I enjoy about this one is that, barring one low-hp kill shot, I penned every shot I hit on the Eastern flank.  Only one miss, too.
     
    Anyways, today's lesson for me was how to seek butts more effectively.  I hope my fellow Chode$tarz approve.
    First up, a surprise blast to the T49 cresting the hill.  I'm not quite certain, but A. I got lucky by not hitting the fence or the fence post, and B. I think he got unlucky and hit the fence post instead of potentially hitting me.
    https://gfycat.com/InformalSpicyBoto   Killed him with the next shot, he had like 60 hp left. Next up, after some unsuccessful fucking about with a 13 90 in mid (that was the missed shot I had), I return to the hill looking for targets of opportunity.  Their sniping 111 1-5 had just fired and it looks like nobody else is paying attention, so I'm thinking I can swing down and get the 54 ltwt's butt and scoot out to the left to get away.  Instead, he's paying attention, and I don't want to risk a side shot, so I forgo it and quickly switch targets... because while he might have been alert to the danger, the M103 was not:
    https://gfycat.com/HilariousUnderstatedDogwoodtwigborer I love that the gfycat URL for that one starts with "hilarious", because it certainly was that.  RNG was really with me there, too. Of course, good things come to those who wait, and 20 seconds later their 54 ltwt makes the mistake of going at our Mauschen.  So I take a go at him while he's distracted:
    https://gfycat.com/DopeyMenacingEyelashpitviper
    ... and their T-54 bounces my ass. Lmao.
    Clearly, it broke something in his mind, because after killing our Mauschen, he too forgets that I'm still there and goes after... uh, something.
    https://gfycat.com/YellowHandmadeGroundbeetle After that I loaded a HEAT round for the 111 1-5's butt, which wasn't needed, so I put it into the Jtiger instead (which was only 400ish damage so whatever, not worth posting) and their other heavy dies before I'm even close to reloaded. But as a bonus gif, I steal the last two kills of the game for fun and profit:
    https://gfycat.com/SparseNarrowEnglishpointer
    I'm telling you, I really need Controlled Impact.  I will admit I was trying to build up enough speed for the goomba, but well... we can't have everything in life, he was already nearly cresting the hill before I got there.   e: apparently, even with spoiler tags it still lags the shit out of the page to post all 5 gfys at once so I'm just gonna make them links

    IIRC they only did class and superheavies
     
    Actually doing it by subclass would require knowing the game well enough to determine subclasses and if they knew the game that well they'd be able to fucking, idk, balance  it better.

    That video points out exactly why binocs and a camo net are such a waste of time, @Guardian54. See how the Strv 103B camo and DPM didn’t mean a thing when the 268v4 can just run him down while bouncing shots?

    Please. Badger's is nowhere near as bad as this thing, the lower plate is paper and it can't yolo to a light tank spot like the grille of old or the 268v4
     
     
    Definitely agree that WG balance department either doesn't exist or it's just an army of poor nerds who have to do all the dumb shit Murazor suggests while drunk on vodka one night

    For these two on flat ground it's actually potentially viable to gold HE the rear.  I tanks.gg'd it and at most shots you'd have while on the same elevation you're looking at 76-80mm effective.
     
    So if you really want to ball out... there's that.
     
    Personally, I'll be using HEAT unless I'm on a hill behind them.  Just figured I'd throw that one out there.

    Obj 257 (Tier 9 Heavy)

    I've noticed that the best fire prevention strategy is to just not get shot.
