T49 is a higher tier tank yet it cant out fire a lower tier bulldog. The issue when you jumped tier you didn't correct the gun. The T49 should have the bulldog 76mm m32 late as stock, but doesn't it has a 90mm with slower rate of fire. it can never out fire a bulldog. THIS NEEDS TO BE CORRECTED. And dont even say anything about our one gun that was good but now is nothing more then a joke, cause you know it is. Since you pretty much nerfed all light tanks at least fix this.

T49 never had a 76mm.

If you aren’t dumb enough to just stand and trade shots, high alpha can beat high dpm in a number of situations.

How do you figure that the T49 can't outshoot a Bulldog?

With the stock gun, the T49 has 70 extra alpha and 400 extra DPM.

With the top gun, a T49 is going to remove most of the Bulldog's health in the first shot, and the Bulldog is going to struggle to kill the T49 before the T49 reloads.

The T49 has significantly higher dpm with either gun.... 240 alpha vs 175. Not sure what you are complaining about.

The T49 has a much higher DPM than the Bulldog... There is no circumstance in which a T49 should reasonably lose to a Bulldog.

Are you, by chance, using a 50% crew in your tank?

 

The T49 will walk over a Bulldog any day of the week and twice on Monday.  90mm will shred it.  152 will delete it.

 

Perhaps you might be doing it wrong?

 

 

353 damage per battle and a 39% win rate, you sir, are not playing the tank correctly.  I've got 1,800+ games in the T49, mostly with the derp-o-matic but have recently started running the 90 which is a glorious gun.  Consistent, reliable, workable.  While it will never beat out the 152 for sheer fun factor, it can -and should- shred most things you meet on the battlefield.

 

Please, save some T49 replays and link to them here.  Show us your crew and equipment.  

 

I'll happily help you conquer the T49, or at least not suck in it.  You just need to be open to criticism and learning new things.

 

Good luck.

Get in touch with Tsavo. It might help you a lot.

F'n numbers!? How do they work!? The Bulldog's base DPM is 2040 compared to the T49's 2400 (with 90mm gun mounted). And that 90mm gun also has the alpha advantage, the penetration advantage, and the movement dispersion advantage over the Bulldog too. Let's even pretend for a minute that none of the above were the case. Even then, the T49's hit point advantage would mean that in a direct damage trade it would out-last the Bulldog. The amount of mental gymnastics it took to even conceive of the idea that the Bulldog has superior firepower is nothing short of miraculous.

I just got the t49 and I love it so much more than the bulldog. 41% increase in alpha, and 18% increase in DPM. Yes please. Better concealment also.

 

The Bulldog is the tank with a problem now, not the T49 lol. Bulldog can't match up with the t7 autoloader, and is only marginalyl better than the non-autoloader. It needs either a buff to rof, or a new gun option. Maybe the 90mm with a reduced rate of fire, similar to the HWK 12.

I loved the T49 at Tier VIII, but hate it at Tier IX. In my hands it has turned into a credit hog at this level. I had over 100k xp earned in it before the move up, now the xp has slowed to a trickle. Am I the only one struggling with this at this tier?

Doesn't the T49's 90mm have high pen HE rounds? Or was that back when it was a tier 8.

Either way if you're losing to a Bulldog with a 76mm when you've got a 90mm the problem isn't the gun it is you.

This bolded bit...makes no sense to me.  At T8 it still had T9 MM but only T8 levels of health.  Now at T9 it still has T9 MM but also T9 health.  The XP gain would change a bit because you no longer automatically get the +10% modifier for being a tier (or more) lower but the tank's performance should have stayed the same or gone up.  They even added AP to the 90mm and I don't think they really messed with the accuracy of the 152 (not sure if they touched the accuracy of the 90mm).

 

At most you should only be seeing an ~10% difference in XP.  And really less than that since that difference would only apply to the XP from damage you dealt and not all the other sources of XP (spotting, assisted, etc).
