Anyone else, besides me, think the new PZ I.C is OP? I was driving the M5A1 (china version) and that PZ I.C ate through my tank in 3 seconds flat. Now I for one do not believe that to be fair, Nor do I believe it to be true for that tanks gun to shoot that rapidly...  Anyone else agree?

It has atrocious penetration, if you would of angled your M5A1 at all it would of bounced everything it threw at you.

You do realise that if they're more than 10m away they can barely hit you, let alone pen you?

Their pen in terribad and to sling gold will cost you 16k per clip. That's right. 16k per clip.

Maybe three to eight of the 40 bullets in it's clip ever actually penetrate any tank I ever use.



It is nowhere near OP. If one attacks you, show it your front and get your free cool headed medal.

If you can't beat them JOIN THEM!

Bit the bullet and bought mine last night. WHAT A HOOT!

I'm on record as saying " I'm used to seeing damage represented in chunks, not some bizarre progress bar rushing to zero".

Three of us platooned last night in the 1C and when we were matched in our tier there was no stopping us.

Get yours now before the nerf hammer hits!

I have to agree and disagree there.

From my experience playing one. Your statement is correct for the front or the sides when angled at all but if you can find a flat side or rear armour...

Bitches be melting.

OP for sure - I also agree with the "can't beat them, join them".  I got one a few weeks ago.  Its OP folks.  even with the crappy pen, its speed and agility allow you to circle any arty, TD, and light tank in the game and blast them apart from the rear.  When you platoon with a friend in a 1C you become a wall of terror.

Obviously it all depends on MM, but MM is usually pretty kind to the 1C.  Even when the MM is bad, its still a great little scout tank and can take down any arty it meets.

When I am in my Locust, I try to get as far away as possible or I have to face them head on.  If they are by themselves I will win with very little health left.  If they have a friend I am doomed. Oh BTW forget trying to run because they are faster than you and will tear you apart from the rear.

You know its OP because there is always at least one PZ 1 C per battle that has 4 or more kills.

If you're killed by a PzIc in a tier 4 round then it's your fault.
Just ram it or derp it and laugh like "huehuehuehuehuehuehuehuehuehuehue br br br"

Well, thats a good point - T IV and V are definitely harder for the pz 1 c - but at tier II and III its way more powerful than any of its stablemates.

It has trouble penning even a lot of Tier 3 LTs, especially with the top gun.  I put the second gun back on mine just to get a little more pen.

We'll platoon 3 Pz I Cs at a time and go to town on a straight Tier III battle.


Suckazzzz....

Exactly! They are easy to kill and their gun misses much more than it hits and then even fewer actually pen. The fact is the OP got outplayed by a better player in a lesser tank.

The pen on the 1C is 30MM and you have 28MM of hull armor.  The Lol Tractor has a pen of 40MM with the 37 MM gun and a 30 MM pen with the 20 MM Breda so I guess the LOL Tracror is OP also.

I hope you all realize that for the most part, only the better players are using them (effectively) and so the WR is going to skyrocket (as well as this "OPness") and it will get nerfed.

Whether it is justified is a whole 'nother barrel o' pebbles
