Who wants to bite the bullet and try the absurd high DPM of the 32lber? :-D

Just got the Conq. two nights ago. If the 32lber had a higher pen premium round I'd consider running it for a laugh. Cause it's kinda boring to play after the lunacy of the Caravan's pew-pew-pewing. No denying it's a very strong tank, though. 

ps fuck arty. All reports of arty having a hard-on for this tank are true. Fortunately there aren't swarms of butt-hungry T49s on SEA.

17mm engine deck. BTW how does one endure a stock Conqueror?

This one didn’t. I swore of playing tier 9s without at least their top gun a while back (besides the obvious exceptions). In the case of the Conq that meant free xping everything but the top engine...

Back when I ground it before the SConq existed, the stock grind was remarkably tolerable and the pewpewpew of the 20 pounder was hilarious. Mind you I still went to 120mm ASAP because it was much better, but it was tolerable enough stock unlike say the T-54 (did not even try to grind that one stock)...

Note that my Conq play was mostly last year, not three years ago when I ground the Cent 7/1 and ran the 20pdr B barrel on it for the DPM and gun handling (because on a mobile tank with good depression if you can't make 226 pen work at Tier 9 back in the pre-Jap BS Heavy days, you needed to uninstall).

About to unlock this now. Is the caravan gun that much worse on the tier 9? I see the turret is required and 60k for the gun. Do stock tracks need to be changed out too? I don't wanna drop 100k on upgrading when I could use that free xp on another line that needs it more.

Was actually thinking of grinding the whole thing out... Haven't done that in about 4 years lol

With 260+ base pen it would be awesome. 220 is enough till you start to fight masses of super heavies.

Yes but buy tracks extension and then research upgraded tracks at the very end.

Try sacrificing your own arty to the arty gods. Maybe theirs might turn a blind eye.

 

 

In all seriousness, you can't really. If the fucker targets you, you're fucked.

All you can really do is go to positions where you are relatively safer from arty.

ok, so enjoyed this so far, im about 30k xp away from unlocking the s conq but i havent unlocked the top engine.

is the s conq a worthwhile upgrade or is tier 9 the sweetspot? im not gonna keep the 9 if i unlock the s conq, so should i keep the s conq and unlock final engne? or just leave the alst engine out and get the tier x

 

muchos gracias

It felt like a great tank, played only a couple of games:

  1. game: first shot ever, random oragne Obj 705 penned my turret roof across the whole map... 800 dmg ok...
  2. game: some random tier 7 bobs penned my turret ring, ok...
  3. game: playing super carefully and arty safe like 70% of the game, at one point decided to climb up the hill on Cliff to kill this annoying scout - got penned in the ass by T92hmc by 1293 dmg, ok...
  4. stopped playing Wot for a while...

I dont think any of these four are really attributable to the tank except maybe (3), cause 14mm engine deck for the win <3

Seriously Conq is Stronq

Well, this is what happened to me... Nevertheless I must admit that the gun handling is godlike.

Update.  15 battles in.  Still no Ace yet, haven't broken 5k damage yet despite being close.

67% winrate and 3k DPG though, which is probably unsustainable but god dammit this tank is good.  I was platooning with another Conqueror and a Type 4 earlier and we were pushing into brawls by ourselves solo and just flattening them, inspiring our pub shitters to follow us into the breach and winning flanks ez mode.

Can't wait for the super conq too I'm gonna need another brit crew...

I somewhat regret selling the conq for the Sconq. They're both delightful tanks. I can promise you that the Sconq is everything you'd hope for in a tier 10 conq.

I just got done soloing 100 battles in it.  Very awesome tank, and laughable with full load out of apcr.   Tier 7s and 8s stand no chance.   After 100battles.  72% win rate and 3.4k dpg.  Favorite tier 9 heavy now.

Loved the Caernarvon - REALLY STRUGGLING with the Conquerer. Seems so so so fragile. Hull down its great, but the second you get flanked or hit by arty you lose commanders, modules the lot.

Went from 60% w.r. on the Caernarvon to 40% on the Conq. Need advice !
