I rarely see them played or discussed--bit of a non-entity, and that's usually telling... but in the rare times i've encountered one, its spaced armor made it nearly invulnerable to my (Type 4) HE rounds... frustrating. I was also blasting it with my Conway and it couldn't pen. So... I dunno. I kinda thought, "hey, if the new meta is going to be HE rounds (Japanese & Polish) then the spaced-armor tier x British HT has a niche" Right?

 

Am I way off here? Is it worth going down the line for this or no?

S Conq is still very strong - if they hide the lower plate. But if you can get those HE rounds into the lower plate....

I take it you didn't do any ranked battles, as you would see eight per game almost every game.  People just don't play it in random battles as it just makes you feel bad for the little t8 tanks that need to fight it.

You are right, the Super Conqueror has no place in the current meta.  You should go down the other lines and avoid it altogether.  And for goodness sakes, if you ever get one - please DO NOT play it in Ranked Battles.  I'm tired of the competition...

Its part of the meta for sure, its very popular in Ranked Battles as well. 

 

HE and arty are really the only things that can dig one out if its hull down. But in the hands of a good player, its a great tank.

Have you heard about aiming at weak spots???

PS. The Super Conqueror won't be the solution if you don't improve your gameplay!

Having high enough pen to troll the turret ring also helps if given the opportunity. Even one Sconq against another using gold has a 60 to 70 percent chance of penning the turret ring. That isn't great but its better than your chances of hitting that overbuffed cupola.

It’s over preforming imo makes a lot of the other ww2 ally nation heavys pointless. And no you can’t use it’s alittle slow as the major downfall...
