The G.Pz. Mk. VI is a cute looking arty tank with a gun strong enough to one shot tier 2's and some tier 3's but the long aim time and a reload that makes you age 2 years makes this arty almost completely ineffective if not useless to use for support. Compared to other tier 2 arty who have much faster reload can shoot four shots before the G. Pz. can shoot its second round. So why is this slow cumbersome tier 2 arty in the game aside from becoming free xp for enemy tanks?:amazed:

For the same reason the KV-2 and Conqueror Orbital Doomsday Cannon Carriage aren't trash:

Alpha.

German low tier SPGs (tier 2 and the sturmpanzers at 3 and 4) specialize in being low tier T92s: massive alpha, not much else.

I had one extremely good game in the thing. Every other game, I couldn't get it to hit anything.

It's tier 2. You'll get through it soon enough. It is one version of available arty. Big gun, slow reload and aim time. Compare that to something like the SU-26 which fires very fast, more accurate, better aim time, but hits quite lightly.

Yea, I think I did that tank like once, hit one thing and went straight to the Bison. The t2 just rang a bell

what good is high alpha when your reload time is twice that of a KV-2's? Even with  gun rammer and crew maxed it can't hold its role when you get city maps like Himmelsdorf. I've had a match on Mittengard where within the first few seconds of the match a light tank rushed me and axed me off before I could load my first shell how do you call that fair?

the balance among the low tier arty is fantastic. Ive 1shotted mre thanks with the SU-18 than any other arty in the game. same arch as the CGC and Bert. the Sandbox make arty even more annoying, and I feel like if they implement the changes all the old dogs will leave. then this game will be 95+% tomatoes.

Two important tips:

1: Mittengard is called The Toilet Of S**ttin'gard for a reason.

2: Nearly all arty has trouble on both Himmelsdorf and Mittengard.

Strategy with GPzVI

-If you're on Mittengard, go AFK like all artillery on that map. You'll just be axed by sealclubbing Tetrarch anyway.

-If you're on Himmelsdorf, go to the rails and cover exclusively the rails.

-Find a really, really, really secret spot.

-Stay hidden for a while while you load (The thing's tiny, it can't be that hard).

-Spot the largest tank on the enemy team.

-Kaboom, one less top tier heavy.

-Repeat previous three steps until no more tanks.

(Disclaimer: I never said GOOD strategy, you can clearly see i'm a tomato with less than 2k battles.)

Arty never has much fun in Himmelsdorf.

Mittenfart is a low tier training hell hole that can't qualify as a real map. Someone originally drew/designed it on a bent up cookie sheet. Got to be the worst map ever.

su 18 is great, but what they have done to the Bert is stupid. went from a fun tank to a useless tank. If it against tier 8, forget it, you are lucky to do 20 hp damage.... maybe even track them, but that is it. I hit an IS3 14 times and did a total of 112 hp damage. useless..
