    Thanks for the overwhelming response guys. Probably going to tug up the Soviet TD line then. I also only call it the derp gun because it's pretty much universally known in game as it - and it's a good reference to it's insane damage, mediocre accuracy and slow reload.

    Keep in mind though, the end tier for the soviet TD line is shit. Big gun, no maneuverability, no speed, no armor.

    I'd recommend the American TD line if you want TD's. The most solid line in the series leads to the most useful TD in the game, if also the most annoying to play.

    Already working on the T25. I haven't had much fun with the Slugger, but the Wolverine was a ton of fun.

    On that note... anyone know why the 90mm loses it's muzzle-brake if you switch back to the non-covered turret? I found that really weird. It didn't change the stats, but it just seems weird.

    Me (PZIV), a T20 and a T34 took out a panther II without damage:
    I circle strafed it with top speed and shot of it's track, and hit 2 in it's ass, the t20 hit destroyed it's gun at the moment it wanted to fire, and the T34 set it on fire.

    Sorry, never heard anyone call it the trollcannon until now. No need to get your panties all in a twist.

    Maybe some humor will cool your jets:

    No.


    I am trying to get daily double on my T28 and I am about to flip a table.

    Seriously, this thing can be so fucking frustrating to play. All T9s can penetrate your whole front bottom half of hull, it's slow as fuck, the 105mm is shit penetration, accuracy, and alpha.

    I spotted a T59 fighting with it's ass turned away from me, fighting somebody

    I engage him, fire few shots. He focuses at me. I by some goddamn fucking miracle tactics outpace him and he has to run. As he is turning away, friendly Pershing appears. Takes a shot at the T59s side at like 30 meters of distance. Misses. The T59 legs it and is driving away with 150hp. I am aiming the last shot right for his ass. The Pershing goes HERP, dashes forwards, RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY GUN and blocks my LOS towards the T59. I think "ALRIGHT I WILL LET HIM GET THE KILL, JEEZE"

    He fires and misses again. At like 50 meters of distance. A target going in straight line away from him. I just clicked, without bothering to aim anywhere. The Pershing explodes. Without a question, without single post. He was so thick that he probably never even understood what actually killed him.

    I am literally in love with the derp gun. Are there any other tanks around tier 4 and higher with similar guns? My only other option is to play battle artillery - and that's not nearly as accurate or effective.
    Tier 5: Sherman and KV both have good ones, but if you want to ride the derptrain all the way up, you're better off sticking to Soviet heavies and TDs. US and Germany don't use them past tier 5. Well, I suppose you could but I really don't suggest it (lol Patton with 105mm derp)

    Arty is easy to avoid if you're anywhere near a town, and if there's more than two enemy arty still alive and you're out in the field you're doing something really wrong

    I really don't get everyone's problem with Artillery. I've never been killed by one.
    Don't you PLAY artillery?

    Dude the Obj.704 has decent front armour, good speed and excellent maneuverability, you need to play it how its made bro.

    The American TD line is good, and the t-95's front armour in an encamped position is excellent, BUT the Obj.704 is one of the most fun tanks to play if you know how to play it. From my experience, just sitting back and being a support cannon works best. For instance the gun has great damage and pen but the reload time is shit, so use this to your advantage: Peak and shoot, Peak and shoot. This coupled with great camouflage makes for a deadly TD.

    But every time you line someone up you have to ask yourself is the 2,500 credits worth the shell your shooting them with?

    The entire French light/med series keeps getting better. Just when I thought the AMX 12t was lots of fun, then the AMX13 75 shows up and it's even better. Then the AMX13 90 just destroys everything, now the Lorraine. I don't even have the top gun and it already wrecks shit.

    That is simply not possible, the AMX 13/90 only gets in matches with at least one Tier 9.

    Unfortunately my premium ends in about 2 hours so I won't be able to experience the 13/90 until I get back.
