I am using the derp. Just the armor and gun depression are so different compared to the oni.
@lavawing how dare you mention stock grind, O-Ho doesnt have one! :^) (other than tracks ofc)
Anyway, I don’t know if he knows but O-Ho for long has been my all time favorite tank in the game. Gun depression has always been an issue, but its possible to work around once you get used to it. However, I have to admit that playing the O-Ho nowadays is certainly not the same than what it was in 2015-2016. Back then, none of the high-pen premium TDs existed, average pen in tier 8 was in general lower as well as less people spammed gold, MM was much better, so the O-Ho’s armor overall was significantly more effective. Oh and your favorite food, IS-6s, were still everywhere; now they are extinct more or less. With those factors and super cancer tier 8 MM thanks to the amazing 3-5-7, you are struck with a tank which still has one of the most hilarious guns in the game, but has practically worthless armor unless you actually get a perfect matchup where you can remember the 2015-2016 days although it will probably still have 3 arty cus that always happens when ur top tier lol. I think my recent average blocked is like 900 or even less, whereas I think I had 1.5k+ a couple of years ago.
I almost never play it anymore; it’s still hilarious in 3x O-Ho toons, but playing it solo is just...no. It still has a lot of giggle moments, but you dont have them as much anymore whereas the frustration part is at least doubled when you have to play it like a pure support vehicle, except a support vehicle that is bigger than Maus and goes 25. It’s still my favorite tank in my heart...but it is my favorite tank to play anymore? Hell no. It has never been amazing, though, but IMO it was legitimately a solid tank a couple of years ago, now its kinda trash
Tier 8 heavies are the primary victims of 3 5 7. My m4 49's blocked damage nearly halved and damage dealt dropped by something like 300.
The O-Ho at least has the derp, and can be a right pickle to heavies with thin sides - 277s and IS-7s not so much......
For the armoured derpgun playstyle, I've been having good success with spamming HE out of the WZ-111 (platooned of course!) The DPM is depressing given it hits for something like 150 on average, but it tilts tier 9 heavies like nothing else, and unlike other HE spammers the 111 is actually reasonably mobile and has the armour to anchor against pretty much anything you can meet, especially in a platoon. Also shits out creds unlike the reg 111, and you can always switch to AP against lowtier tards.
