Some believe the Cromwell is OP, other think the tank sucks.

I am of the opinion that the gun sucks, takes too long to aim, isn't terribly fast, can spot worth [edited], has no armor.

But it is really good a killing tanks, almost 3 kills in under a min.

IMHO the only t6 medium that is better than the Cromwell is the Cromwell B

I play my Cromwells as medium-long range snipers early on, relying on rate of fire to get early support damage in or depending on the map I'd be an early aggressor fighting for key spots.

 

Late game it's all about speed, mobility, and out maneuvering your targets to kill em off.

 

It's a pretty versatile tank.

Killing brain dead lunks with APCR isn't really a test of a tank.  That said it's arguably one of the best tanks in the game for its tier.

 

Here's my favorite Ace Tanker with the Cromwell:

I doubt that replay even works anymore, but I only run the Howitzer.

The Cromwell is a really really good tank and one of the best tier 6 mediums do it's high skill cap. 

 

The gun handling is sort of crappy, mostly just the gun bloom. The aim time isn't that bad and the aimed in accuracy is quite good. The penetration and damage is quite good as well in addition to the high RoF allows for very consistent DPM. 

 

The mobility is fantastic and allows you to dominate late game in clean up situations or out maneuvering the enemy. 

 

The Crommie was one of my favorite 3 marks to complete (although it took a lot longer). It's a beautiful tank and super fun to play. 

 

The best tier 6 med is the T-34-85M though, without a doubt. Incredibly overpowered.

The Cromwell (and Cromwell B) have great mobility, decent spotting, great DPM and penetration, decent alpha, and kinda bad gun handling.

Overall, one of (if not the) best tier 6.

It's really just a light tank with more hp and firepower than most other tier 6 light tanks that is balanced by poor gun handling while moving. Everything else is way above most of the tier 6 light tanks. The combo of speed/dpm means a wolf pack of them can rip apart just about anything really fast. Gun handling doesn't matter when they can speed in close range and circle straffe stuff to death just like what they do in strongholds with them. It has good camo for a medium tank as well and great in pubs:

The Cromwell (and Cromwell B) are the jack of all trades master of none tank at that tier.  The Cromwell has great speed, high DPM and when equipped right with a well trained crew a great view range.  Running three cromwells in a platoon can be rewarding experience.

I disagree. Either the Type 64 or the T-34-85M are the best tier 6 tanks in the game right now. 

 

Type 64 has crazy good gun handling and really good view range + awesome mobility etc etc. It was good when it got tier 7 mm but now it gets tier 6 mm and can use vstabs with no nerfs so yeah it's crazy strong right now. 

 

T-34-85M is way better in the hands of a lesser experienced player. After the buffs it's just insane. The armor is insanely good against same tier and lower and the DPM is absolutely stupid. Combined with the fact that it has really good alpha and penetration not to mention the OP HE shell.

Agreed
