They are pub stompers. I don't see them being clan wars worthy at all.

Add in some significant situational awareness and you end up with those 55+% win rates.
The good news is that WG uses the over all stats before deciding to nerf/buff.
I expect the adjustments will go either way, but it is not worth getting my blood pressure up.
In the meantime, loving the Hp/Ton ratio and speed on the T5-T6 tanks.

Centurion MK.1 has that turret ring so exposed, might aswell make a skin with "shoot me". Funny review anyway xd

i looked at it, and decided that it was essentially a lower profile sherman - but it lacks the derp gun of the sherman, so playing peek-a-boo isn't as effective. I had few great matches in it.
The only times it ever performed well was when there was a fair break in enemy lines, and i scooted through, and went back field hunting - arty, and slow td's, and spotting the big stuff for, hopefully, tier 4 arty to do something about (infrequent, but that's more a porblem of tier 4 arty drivers).
I was very happy to sell it, and get the cromwell.
To me, the cromwell is a faster, higher profile t20, minus the nice 90mm - the 75mm HV seems decent, but i don'y have enough matches to render a solid judgement yet
Basically idk what to make of the brit meds yet - but i seriously doubt that anyone can call them OP with a straight face...

The tank has no armor, maneuverability is not good enough to scout effectively, its top gun is tier IV, not accurate, lacks alpha.... reloads faster than it can aim, meaning that the effective DPM is affected by its high aiming time. And its usually one shot by other tanks of the same tier mounting derp guns. Even MM likes this screw this tank, usually placed last on tier 7 battles.
This is the worst tier 5 ever. There is nothing good in this tank, at least nothing better than other tier V's.

I found the 3 inch Howitzer is fun in some cases. For example on the El Halluf map, the main portion of the battle was around the A2 hill position. People with traditional tank guns at the base of the hill or across the valley were having trouble hitting any tanks in the new ridge line area because of the cover. However, I used the 3 inch Howitzer in my A13 Covenanter which arched the shot up and over the ridge to nail a PZIII/IV from above like a local arty. My quick rounds took him within 15 HP before he had withdrew from the A2 area.

There is a blurred tier 5 premium tank there. Any idea what it could be?
