im losing game after game on this thing. it doesnt matter if im at the top of the list or down lower. ive been on a crazy losing streak in general - but its really been salient with my store-bought heavy.

It's been so freaking bad in the pubs the last couple of weeks that I'm thinking of taking a break for a week or two.

Losing streaks happen to all of us. Its really frustrating when you can't seem to do anything to get a win. I've just had 3 games where we lost when all things pointed to a win. On one in Himmelsdorf in my Type 59 we had pushed 12 tanks to their cap to find out that a medium and a light had managed to make their way to ours and cap before anyone could get back to stop it. That was frustrating when you have them down 12 to 4 and they win like that. The 2 heavies that stayed near their cap kept resetting us just enough to let them win. We had a couple of mediums that could have tried to get back to prevent but they got caught up in the shooting and never even tried. T34 got me just as I got headed in that direction (ammo racked, went up like 4th of July).

What you might be experiencing in the Lowe is the fact that it plays like no other heavy in the game with the possible exception of the Tiger II. Its a sniper for the most part and you can make a big difference in a match if you stay back and deal out damage from afar like a TD. The gun is insanely accurate and deals out lots of damage. Try the sniper method for a while and hope you get teams that can at least find their way to the other side.

Had the same issue in my E75. Lowe is a hard tank to drive, you are one of the slowest tanks in battle and the lower glac gets penned all of the time.

Look on the forums for guides on driving the Lowe. Good luck, it will get better.

I feel your pain. I recently got my shiny new Tiger and cannot seem to win in it at all. No matter how I play my team always loses in pub matches. The thing is cursed.

Well the Lowe is a sniper there are plenty of posts on that.

You never want to go rushing in when you play your Lowe,that's not what it's designed for.
When you get about 100 battles in it you will have learned the strength's and weakness's of the monster.And you will then start making money with it.

As far as the losing streak it does seem that there has been a lot of stupid noob teams on the pubs lately.
Everyone has bad battles after bad battles but then you will start winning and all will be well.

Small sample size but you want to try to get a little more than 1k damage per game on that thing IMHO, that has the 105 so your averaging 3 penning shots per game. Keep your gun in the game AND in use and things will even themselves out.

Why the hell does this deserve a -1?

But hey, lol for Lowe, KT, JP, or my E-75, I get about 5-10 penning shots in a decent battle....

I agree.Personally I think they should remove that +/- BS from the forums.

I dont care about the rep, Ive gone from -50 to 200 and in between. Pretty much, hard facts or being retard get you negs.

Anyways, use hard cover when you can, long reload kinda means you want to unload your alpha and then GTFO. The turret location mean you can also abuse those corners pretty well. Come out and give a steep angle for them to shoot you and be rewarded by bounces. Never go alone like always, try to get in position where you are somewhat near the brawling (supporting the higher tiered heavies) but able to relocate if needed.
