So uhh… anyone read their skill and equipment recommendations for this… thing with a thing?

 

That WG page recommends Vents + GLD, and then training your gunner and driver in Snapshot and Smooth Ride as their first real skills.

 

They are trying to com2.7pensate for some2.7thing wrong with the gun handling, but dang if I can figure out what it is.

My 4 skill Action X crew does pretty good in this.  Would never play it with a lesser crew thou.

I only considered buying this tank as part of my "Collection".  But I no longer can see doing this.  It's too bad that they didn't give it a decent gun. It could have been a nice tank, as the armor is good. And it moves right along.

I originally bought the Sentinel because a) I'm an idiot and b) I assumed it would play roughly like the version in Blitz. Needless to say, I was spectacularly wrong on point b)!

Based on using a 100% crew, the most useful thing you can do if you aren't top tier is to simply draw fire for as long as you can survive and, if by some miracle you can get behind someone, maybe knock off a few hit-points. The more pessimistic may choose to drown themselves (but I feel that's poor form).

Unless they fix the aim time (at least), I cannot over-stress how much you should not buy this tank!

What strengths????? Smile_trollface-3.gif It is slow has crappy armor and the gun has no pen and has "NO" preferable MM! Did I miss something pointing out how great the Sentinel is>>>>>LMBO facepalmic.gif

One more thing I was wondering who you trying to B S with that line;  The Sentinel struggles in higher-tier matches, but can still play its part! It is "UTTER GARBAGE" to say it in a polite way!!!

I would not spend a dime on this POS!

P.S. "Overall, the Sentinel plays a like a lighter and quicker version of the Matilda. If you're looking for a tier IV medium tank with a little more "get up and go," this may be the tank for you!" ??

Utter rubbish: the Tilly has the squeeze-bore 2 lb i.e. the same penetration with standard ammo as the Sentinel gets with gold!!

Gun needs to be better, do higher damage, it really does.... I'm sure any WG employee would agree if they played it for a while.  Needs a buff quickly to be respectable at all.  I would hate to see such a unique tank be given such a bad deal and end up being one of those tanks like the Matilda BP that just sits in a dark corner for years to be avoided.

Sure that is all nice and needy but not everybody in the game has a 4 skill crew to put in this Junker

The Matilda BP is made to look an inspired choice by the Sentinel (I have both)!

The proper way to play the AC 1 Sentinel is not to buy the AC 1 Sentinel in the first place.  Outside of a tier 4 its trash.

What I cant understand is why Wargaming keeps trying to sucker the players into buying this craptastic tank instead of fixing the gun handling and ground resistance problems.  Otherwise, were not buying the tank. Period.

It's called vaccination. You have an attenuated one to be safer from the real stuff. :amazed:
