    TD: tier II

Its reload is atrocious, it does very well if the enemy rarely shows itself allowing it to reload. a fast attack by multiple tanks even if its playing support makes it only effective at knocking out one tank.

And that is the attitude we need to be rid of.

"Oh look, this one hasn't been nerfed for a while".

Please leave.

That's why you use the fast gun.....

The T18 dies just as quickly as any other tank even if it's face on. You just have to know where to shoot.

Never fear a tank but at the least give it a little respect and you will soon see it dieing.

Your attitude should be: "this will create more diversity", not "clearly this is proof that it is OP".

Protip: Facing a T18 from the front? Shoot it's gun (the giant box around all that thick armor) and it'll pop.

I tend to aim for the sloped section of armor on the front, just below the gun. So far, I've had a lot of success shooting there, particularly in my Cruiser III. It typically takes 2-3 shots to destroy the T18 there, but it's not often that I'm the only one shooting at him and my shot rarely ricochets. Meanwhile, I've aimed for the gun mantlet and rarely seem to penetrate there.

Granted, I'm not exactly the most experienced, but I seem to have a reasonable degree of success against T18s and don't automatically run from them (as was my rule before I actually took a look at their armor).
