I have never had a problem with the Charioteer. Yes, RNG will troll you sometimes, but overall the tank is ridiculously good, especially since the gun depression buffs.


A few tips:

1) Lose the standard HE. The tank's ammo capacity is so low and the carry capacity is so high that you really shouldn't be carrying shells that are useful in such few circumstances.

2) What is your equipment loadout? From the aiming time, I would say it's probably Rammer, Optics, Vents? If so, consider dropping one for a GLD. I'm currently running Rammer, GLD, Binocs, and it's working rather well for me.

3) Read these guides, both of which are written by Charioteer players who are much better than myself:

I love the Charioteer, one of my more favorite tier 8 tanks in the game. :)

 

A lot of the shots in that video were at slim targets and/or were not fully aimed.

I just got the conway yesterday.

Trust me, the conway is much better. I hated the charioteer (it's more of a playstyle difference) I like to be frontlines with my td's, but you cant do that with a paper td. The conway can bounce some pretty stupid stuff

I 100% agree about the HE thing, don't know why I even bothered carrying standard.
Actually no, I'm using a laying drive, vents, rammer. I can't get the aim time any lower with my current crew (only 2 perk) 
and when it comes down too it, I actually do like this tank for the mobility, and when the gun works it REALLY works. Just had a bad RNG in it today and wanted to [edited]post ;)

Interesting. I thought the aim time seemed a little long on some of those shots, but I guess that was just my mistake. It could be the fact that I've been playing the T92 LT lately, which has almost no aim-time. Next to that, the Charioteer's aiming speed seems glacially slow.

I agree. The 0.35 accuracy sucks sometimes, but when the gun behaves, the tank is glorious. In those times, it pretty much plays itself.

 

It's rather telling that I like the Charioteer, especially given the current state of tier 8 mm and my normal dislike of TDs (the playstyle is too passive for my taste). And yet, in spite of those things, I liked the Charioteer enough to keep it after the grind and put a female commander in it. One of these days, I'm going to have to go back and 3-mark it, if I can. As you can see in the second guide I posted, the Charioteer with 3 marks looks soooo good.

I would suggest giving it another shot. The Challenger got some pretty major buffs that make it look rather competitive now, and I can personally attest to how good the Charioteer and Conway are right now.

With the increased gun depression I now love the Charioteer, I play it just for fun even though I unlocked the Conway quite sometime ago. I also rather like the Challenger and I still play it as well.
