I hate the bus tanks.  Long big poor side armor.  I am freaking 2500 xp from dumping the bus tanks forever (at least American buses... I'll probably get a bus tank in some other line some day).  I have no idea why I didn't just go the Super Sherman route, as I had already researched it before buying the T5 Bus.

 

And with the 90mm gun, I still hear "did not penetrate their armor" quite frequently (albeit usually on T7s).  The gun also  has slow aiming time, which leaves your bus exposed.

 

Honestly, I never felt any fear going up against an M6 when I had my T5 KV-1.  And with my premium T5 Soviet Churchill, I eat them up with rapid fire.  The derp gun on the KV-1guaranteed decent damage against them.  That's not to say that I always won, but I won enough not to fear it.

I kinda dig the M6. I play it cautiously once I learned it cannot be in front. If you play it like a medium or TD, you will find it's gun is just too much fun

Best t6 tank u ask??

  

KV2 is the best! 

Pro:

150mm gun is beast even just firing HE ammo

Ok armor, It can bounce shots form t5. t6 not really

Con:

its pretty slow 

aiming time ( But Stalin will come out from his grave and guide ur shot to the target and 80% chance ur gonna hit without aiming)

The M6 is indeed the best overall Tier 6 and there's really no argument.

It is so good at so many things. The combination of all the advantages at play at once is just frankly "Over Powered" but somehow the M6 has survived patch after patch with no nerf. If they do nerf this tank, I will likely lose interest in the game all together as this is my favorite tank in the entire game and about 1/3 of all my battles are in this tank. 

The gun is perhaps the best in Tier 6.... 240 a shot every 6.41 seconds with 243 penetration per shot. You can easily compete at Tier 8 with that gun... its a better gun (with gold rounds) than the standard ammo of many tier 8 tanks including the AMX CDC and Lowe.

 

Its gun depression is the best, aim time is great, speed and acceleration are good, and Hit Points are great. It's a great climber and if you angle, you bounce alot. 

1 vs 1.... No Tier 6 beats the M6... because the game isn't just played from 2 meters away.. sorry KV-2 and O-I, but from a distance the M6 takes ur lunch money and up close, they best kill the M6 in 1 shot because the DPM of the M6's kills them before that 2nd shot.

Mic drop.

Recent Wn8 of 474, should maybe be asking for advice, not giving it ... but I hope the M6 is as fun as he says, since I'm grinding that line now. 

I'm actually enjoying the Lee. Was expecting the grind from hell but halfway through I'm at 73 per cent WR with the Wedding Cake From Hell.

 

I can't say I actually like the tank, and my damage stats are down, but if you play it like a TD in a bright pink clown suit, it's not that bad ....

OK, so I now agree with this post. The M6 is awesome. I finally got the 90 mm, but even with the previous gun the tank was pretty good. It's much more flexible than the Russian heavies, for example, though their armour is better for city peek a boom brawls. 

 

However, I just got the 90, and a couple of days in killed five tanks in a Tier 8 matchup, all of them higher tier than me. This is a very good tank.

Probably already been answered, but what's the preferred equipment loadout on this? GLD, Vents, Rammer? Just started grinding this line to get the tier VIII and X for clanwars, I'll probably keep the M6 in-case we do tier VI clanwars as well.

I use optics over rammer. I play the tank like a slow medium and that view range is often just enough to spot an opposing medium after they fire. Rather then sit there and get hit by an invisible target, I get to return the favor in kind, 240 damage in kind, which is more then enough to teach them not to repeat that mistake.

 

In this replay I was caught in a bad position by a medium, but my view range was just enough to spot him and punish him. A single round was enough punishment to convince him to move elsewhere and my tank was spared, allowing me to proceed in killing the remaining competition.

The m6 is a beast. Great alpha and DPM. Good gun handling. Great depression. An amazing premium round for bottom tier. Great acceleration. Theres really not much to dislike. Just stay mobile to avoid arty.

What is up with the m6? Did they nerf it. I was almost up to getting my 3rd star when they nerfed it. It is slower and doesnt pen as good. I was up to 94.5%. Now 89. What gives!

I'm thinking of actually going back and grinding from the Lee to the M6 to get it.

 

Is is worth doing to have the M6?
