I don't have the 252u. Do I want it? Yes. Why? It reminds me of my Is3. Do I think I must have it? No. Why? The Is3 has a smaller lfp, a weaker pike(Trolley), smaller target, better gun handling, mobility with slightly less damage. Is3 is just a better tank to play. How did I come up with this without owning the tank. I only play tier 8-10. I have fought quite a bit of the 252s and I am not impressed. It is an an oversized Is3. If the is3 was slightly larger, the tank would be trash. I have 300+ battles with a 58% w/r in my Is3.
Play tier 6-8 for a while. When that alpha takes 60% of your AP and you can't pen them at all, you will be on the forums crying too.
"Just flank them" is nonsense only complete potatoes drive around solo in any tank. Even if you wanted to Yolo in this tank, These things lead lemming trains, as teammates follow them in. Every single game. So if he craps on you for more than half of your health, his buddies clean you up when you try to flank.
It is press w and win, the only thing preventing absurd winrates is that there is 2-5 of these in every battle right now, so it comes down to who has more defenders or better players. If you see the other team has two and you have zero you will not win.
That said there are other stupid powerful tanks, e25, t67, Emil's, etc
I think if they had given it the proper damage 390, instead of 440, it wouldn't be so bad. 440 two shots all tier 6 heavies, 390 takes very lucky rolls to do less than three shots. High rolls on that 440 also two shots tier 7 lights and mediums. And 3 shots most tier 8 mediums. Vs the 4 shots every other tank with that same 122 gun needs.
