The end British TDs

Post  Guest on Mon Feb 18, 2013 2:13 am

So, currently in the test server, the british TDs carry the two highest things in game.
Tortoise (oddly enough) has probably one of the highest dpm in game (6.7 sec reload on a 400 dmg gun), while the FV 183 carries the highest alpha in game (1750 dmg, 275mm pen).

Imo, I think the FV is game destrying by all regards, simply because while its accuracy is the same as IS-7, the sheer alpha is devastating. Due to the high alpha, it counters autoloaders due to their low overall hp, terminating them before they can unload their clip. Combine one of those things with say a T110E4 (2 turreted TDs), and the duo will be able to 2 shoot any tank in game except Maus (whom is obsolete). The FV 183 is currently in the test server, simply put, a T92 in TD mode with high mobility (almost same as T110E5) and turret, but without the issue of aimtime and accuracy.
Even if the shot misses, since its HESH, the explosion splashes onto nearby tanks. Being 183mm calibre, the splash outperforms an object 263 (180mm calibre) barely, but the HESH having 275mm pen outpeforms a direct hit from 261 by far.

Also another note is that tortoise has higher hp than most tier X tanks, at 2000hp, it has the largest hp pool among tier 9 TDs, higher than foch 155 and the objects. Despite that, FV 183 has less hp than Tortoise, oddly enough.

I agree. That FV 183 with HESH is just too much. Haven't played many games, but I've oneshotted 2 Batchats. Just impossible to play high tiers on test sever because there's always at least 5 FV 183s lurking around the next corner ready to blast you to kingdom come.

I concur, had a few test matches and even when missing i was clocking up 700+ damage. I have had a few hits of 2k damage and have 1 shot a Conqueror, Tier 9 brit heavy, which is frankly silly!
26 second reload with potential for 2k damage a pop on a manouverable Td with a turret.

That's my main concern. While autoloaders burst potential are truly frightening, such as how a batchat can completely annihilate your tank with its drum or when foch 155 unleashes hell upon you, they do not do it risk free. Those have to expose themselves for extended periods of time to unleash their barrage, and not to mention you can pull behind cover/fight back while they try to kill you. Also, being autoloaders, if they don't salvo their entire load at once, they either have to fight with a handicap on the next encounter, or spend the next 40 sec loading. The HESH monster doesn't have any of those disadvantages, and the 3.6 aimtime is hardly that devastating when you think of that the batchat and foch 155 has 3 seconds, but require 10 sec to fire their payload.

this is all true indeed, but i think the nerf bat will hit this tank hard in a few months, when they see it is OP/gamebraking

Power Creep, same old same old.
Of course they'll nerf it later to reduce the negative efects but still profit from the positive (company view) ones.
