It would seem that a  lot GF players actually think the tank is a "gawdmode" vehicle and is invincible. Player after player shoving other random mates out of the way (and into the firing lane), forcing themselves in front of someone already in position, backing into people, and acting like a loony. 

 

Stop acting like "I got this". You look silly when you blow up.

 

Then there is this guy!

  • 87 avg battle damage
  • 36 Win8
  • buys GF
  • parks behind base entire game

This is what drives people nuts

300 more bot games to go and he'll almost have enough to get his first crew skill and pick up 6th sense. :trollface:

Avoid monotony of grinding at cost of wn8, genius!

I have to say, based on my forays on randoms of late, the cries of 'OP' regarding the Chrysler do seem to be premature in some respects - if anyone competent gets their hands on one, they're a serious threat, but ninety-something percent of the ones I've seen have not lasted a terribly long time - there does seem to be something about this tank that makes people drive like, erm, <tact on> someone who hasn't entirely understood how the game works...

I don't think I have yet bounced a single shot on one of these tanks, unlike the Defender which is much more difficult to deal with.

LOL! Sh*t happens.

 

Dpending on how the rest of the team behaves, I may do something similar if driving a LT, MT, or TD to provide covering fire for the team artillery.

 

I too have a Mopar K. I think it is a fine HT when competently played; HOWEVER, a rear are sniper it is NOT.  In fact, when I am playing arty and I see a camping Mopar K, guess what my first target is.

I took that screenshot on my second loop around the map. We won this one - and the GF actually got a kill - he ran into one of their meds coming after our arty while moving to the other side of the area behind the base - I mean he accidentally ran into it and it blew up :teethhappy:

they think they are invincible because they heard all the "this tank is OP" crud, I mean they can keep thinking that but it isn't true.  More easy shots for us if they do think that way.

Wow. Why the hell did all the 100 game people buy the GF instead of the 252U/252U Defender? The 252U is actually OP. GF is OP when you are fighting it frontally, but if you get its side or rear it's dead.

 

If you put me in a Defender when I had a few hundred games and sub-100 WN8, I'd probably do around as much damage as I do in my tier 6s and 7s nowadays.

Honestly - I think they buy it based on hype, the "omg its OP pay2win", and the looks of it.

They might want to check the gun stats. 198 pen isn't exactly stellar for tier 8. Even at 4k games I still have trouble identifying weakspots. Imagine somebody with 100 games who probably doesn't even know what a weakspot is. One of the things that makes the Defender so good. Defender might not be the best at its tier for heavy tank pen, but it's sure as hell better than the GF.

 

Leaves me with a personal quandary. I want a 252U, but the tank is extremely harmful to gameplay, if my experiences from fighting it are any indication. Jingles called it "idiot-proof", something which I wholeheartedly agree with. GF is only idiot-proof when facing people from the front.

GF is great for a quick push scenario, with other friendly tanks behind the GF, and steam rolling one side of the map that has tier-VIII and lower mediums/lights.

If they're smart and they position themselves frontally, it's basically up to rolling high RNG on the lower plate, especially in tier 8 vehicles. I fight them a lot in my Lowe and I've yet to pen them frontally. Most of the time they're dumb and sidescrape horribly, so I just shoot them in the side.
