How is the Panzer III/IV?
I'm not going down that line again (I don't want a Panther that badly) but my brother just started playing about a month ago and was stuck on the IS-3 so he went down that german line.
It can still fuck shit up with it's supreme mobility in tier 6 games, had a kv2 and kv1s curse me for killing them and 3 other dudes.
Though as with most tanks that rely on mobility it heavily depends on the map and where the team is going.
Whoops you were talking about the III/IV, herpaderp
Overlord says the Waffenträger E-100 will be based on the GW Type E arty chassis and have the 17cm gun. So no E-100's thick armor hull.
It will be turreted
And more infos. Overlord says WG has plans to "get rid of" several "sci-fi" tank setups (like PzIV schmalturm) to make them more realistic/historical.
So I'm relatively new at this, and I'm only halfway down the Soviet, American, and German Tiers, but are the Germans underpowered?
It seems like anything from Soviet/American T3+ can tear holes into my Panzer IV.
Likewise, the guns from German tiers so far have been disappointing beyond belief. The WoT Wiki told me I would be a king of long-range combat.
- Scratch. My memory is apparently shite.
Oh well, hope we get some appropriate Russian buffs and not stuff like: "Removed 1mm of penetration, removed 3mm of armor, etc."
I also hope they don't remove the T-50-2 entirely, but instead just make it unobtainable. (With no boost to profit.)
And yes, they do have the most accurate guns (most of the time), but they don't get thicker armor until tier 8 and up. You just gotta know the game well to be successful
Honestly, go try out some of the Russian i-can't-hit-shit tanks and you'll be running back to your German guns in no time.
Played a few rounds in my brothers IS-3 the other day.
I went running back to the KT.
Oh god they better not touch my Patton's gun depression, it's the only advantage I have over those damn E-50s.
The IS-4 has plenty of armor, it didn't need a gun depression low enough for the breech to go through the roof, the Patton however has no armor except for that tiny mantlet.
The first tank I enjoyed was the Pz38na, so it figures I would like that hit-and-run style gameplay.
If they want realism they're gonna have to give the 50B +16/-8 instead of its current +12/-6
It's gonna hurt.
O boy, don't get Az started on his models.
no i lost that when i got older
dude thats totally unnecessary and rude
So ventured out in my M103 (Stock) and then ran back to my garage like a scared little girl.
Any tips? Or should I just wait until I can unlock parts with free XP?
I want to like the PzIV. It's actually not even that bad of a tank once you get the stupid ass Panther II turret. But I just cannot get over how completely stupid that turret looks. I was looking forward to getting the PzIV, but when I found out that the tank is completely worthless unless you drive a bobblehead I was so disappointed. This was back when I almost liked World of Tanks too.
I am so glad they're throwing that thing away. Now I can drive a PzIV that looks like a PzIV. Too bad this means the PzIV will go back to being a piece of shit without that long 75mm.
The Panzer IV is the tank I think of when I hear or see the word "tank".
idk, I think the M4 Sherman is a bit more of a mainstream "tank" tank
