I just don't seem to see what the point is in playing that vehicle. Especially considering the ridiculous grind that it entails.
They feel like obese, handicapped Grilles.
One would think, "Wow, what a huge gun! It's surely the best thing in the world!", but at the end of the day, the 210mm isn't as strong as one would think when reading the usual "remove arty" threads. Of course, it does not help that even when aiming properly, there's still a very high chance that you will hit nothing at all.
Missing targets is something all SPG players are used to, but waiting for such a big shell's ridiculous reload time is simply boring. It's an all or nothing vehicle. Now and then the shells will land just right and you will feel happy about it, but if you miss two shells it means that you spend a long time being bored without being able to do anything for the team.
Grille-Hummel-GwPanther - they're all upgrades. But this is a downgrade...and Gw Typ E isn't looking like it will be worthwhile. I don't even have mobility, so there's no versatility to be found either.
So again, what's the point of those two vehicles? And more importantly, why is there such an overwhelming amount of Gwt/E players, when these machines seem to be so bad? What am I doing wrong?
I'm getting close to selling this thing and forgetting about it. The little Premium SPG is much more fun to use, even if it has a weak gun.
On another note, what IS the point of any superheavy tank? E-100, GWT/E, Maus, JPE. It seems to me that Superheavies don't work at all. I bet a lot of the people wouldn't mind if these vehicles were replaced for more reasonable designs anyways.
Maybe I just don't know how to play.
Edit: I'm gonna try the 170mm gun again, it seems more reasonable.
