I'm not apologist, but an alt account in the forums, could be due to a forum RO on a main account.

 

​Could also be he has an unchecked opinionated  caustic vocabulary and doesn't want to be perma banned for going to far when he feel the need to express himself

in a manor unacceptable to the Mods

​How do you manage a 25% win rate in a WZ111?

Are you throwing games on purpose?

 

Check out mine in it for a laugh. I can't win anything in that tank.

 

Wait. Nevermind. It's 51% now, it used to be 12% at 6 battles.

I killed a 252U today with my T26E5. Just kept shooting the turret roof. I did have a little help but not much.

After fighting tons of Defenders, I'm not impressed. Sure, it hits hard, but it is easily pennable. It has butter for sides and giant tread wheels. If you ignore the pike nose, the tank is insanely easy to fight.

I keep noticing a trend in these 252 whine threads.

 

that trend is, the person QQing about how the tank is op......

 

.....never actually owns one

I guarantee you none of them could manage even decent results if they did own one. And then they would turn around and cry that it needs buffs. Pubbie autism is great.

I was going to pull the trigger on it but after yesterday, I decided I will hold onto my money.  Probably a mistake but I've missed out on other OP tanks before and survived.

Or load gold and butter the lfp.  T26e5 has better dpm so anytime you catch one in the open you should win easy.

Yeah, it's not like people can look up its performance stats and see from those if it is OP or not.... Oh, wait, they can.  

 

It's also not like those who own one have a vested interest in keeping their OP wagon OP... Oh wait, they do....

​it's not like the p2w whiners are subject to confirmation bias and exaggerating strengths while downplaying weaknesses HURRR THEY ARE

 

it's not like paper stat theorycrafting and real world performance are two different things HURR THEY ARE

 

it's not like those who own one have nothing to hide since prems are never nerfed HURR THEY DON'T

Wrong stats.   It's actual performance.  Like those things people put in their signatures, only for tanks instead of people.  I'm well aware that tanks can be more, or less, than the sum of their individual stats like pen, aim time, armor, etc.

 

PS:  Though extremely rare, prems have been nerfed since the great SP debacle.  Mutz and patton kr had their MM weight increased with no compensating buffs and the sta-2 lost some rof as part of a rebalance.  I don't know if any lost armor in HD updates, but it's possible.  And of course, the T-22, but that was a reward rather than normal premium.

As an owner of a Defender, is it overpowered? Not really. Is it better than the IS3? I feel like it is.

 

It performs the brawler role better than the IS3 does, due its frontal armor. People say they've easily killed 252Us, which I can understand, but they've also killed a lot of IS3s. Do we knock on the IS3 for being a horribad tank because we've killed a bunch of them? Its mobility and gun handling is only slightly weaker than the IS3's but because it's got the armor that could bounce a JPE100 whereas an IS3 will not, it's brawling capability is much more reliable.

You couldn't even start your list with something correct? It does not have better side armor than an IS4.

100mm
