Now, with introduction of wheelies, we could really use turret machine guns. On heavies, it tends to be a 50-cal or a 12.7 mm DSzK (I believe ther'es also a 14.5mm version around). Either of these, with AP ammo, can deal handsomely with wheelies, which have paper armor.

Wargaming, how about making my MG more than an ornament?

More gold for WoT selling premium mg ammo which is useless on anything BESIDES a wheelie and only of marginal value on them. Rather WoT gets rid of wheels; they turn the game into a race track and their unrealistic cross country performance seriously degrades the quality of the game - which is supposed to be tanks vs tanks using more or less realistic maneuver, firepower and armor.  There are many who enjoy the racetrack game - I would gladly support a server for high speed demolition derby and include the arty with that game.  Then there could be a server which is strictly tanks and speeds no higher than 40 kph focusing on good use of terrain and tactics.

I long for the good use of terrain and tactics which have been erroded by several counterintuitive design desisions.

It's not a tank game anymore. Even the Twitch description calls it an "Action/Racing/Driving" game.

How about you learn to aim instead?

 

Machineguns are cancer and should be removed from the game.

Not sure what you hope to accomplish with a MG when 155mm rounds from an arty with a direct hit don't get a kill on them. It's an arcade game just deal with it.

I got news for you: machine guns ARE NOT in this game. Nothing to remove. Another thing: since they are not in the game, how can you tell they are cancer?

Pen wise it looks ok, but if you are able to hit it 163 times I will be impressed. 

 

T7 combat car has the M2 Browning .50 cal MG as its main gun.

My apologies, you are correct, I mistaken Cancer I's horizontal radio antenna with a machinegun, it somehow does damage, though.

What are you firing? Asking because when I have a big, tier 9 or 10 gun, shells cost more than damage I would do to a wheelie. And reload time is 10-12 seconds at best, during which I have nothing to shoot enemy heavy with.

So how about learning to think instead making idiotic comments?

How is the reload different from shooting a heavy during a brawl?, you're heading to your fighting spot and catch a wheelie on your way, and shoot it, so what?

 

Damage and shell cost are the same regardless of what you're shooting at, gold spamming much?
