Goodbye trash, hello- ....worse trash? maybe? hopefully not? :confused:

The suffering is for a good cause atleast, i can't wait to play the Caernarvon.

Black Prince is definitely better than the Churchill 7, if only because it doesn't have that dreadful gun depression

The funny thing about the British is that they are cancer to play at lower tiers, then become absolute cancer towards everyone else.

 

Brilliant balance by WG right there.

Churchill I is not cancer and is a good option to pla y for its tier.
Definitely low tier bit heavies are not a frontline brawler.
BP has a very low pen for its tier and this is abysmal facing tier 9 and 8.

I kept the Church VII after I bought the Black Prince, but I sold the BP right after I bought the Caernarvon. Make up your own mind after you finish your BP grind, but the Church VII is still in my garage while the BP is not.

 The black prince is probably the dumbest thing the UK has ever done and that's saying a lot

you are a stronger man than i!  after i finally elited the churchVII...i retrained the crew to another tank...sold off the VII and vowed to never play another Brit heavy. now its only the church III (russian) because of the  pref MM. and that may become a dual-nation tank. its the slowness that irks me...i like mobility and being able to scram when i need to.good luck on your quest.

I dont think any of them are keepers till the T8 but the BP is still not the nightmare its made out to be.  Point armor at enemy and pewpewpew.

Just look at my stats the last 7 days. You'll see the agony of this grind.

Let me look in my crystal ball... I see frustration, tears, whining. All of it here on display in this very forum. MM, WG, RNG, developers, russian bias - get ready to be hated.

I enjoyed the Churchills, side-scrape and keep a lot of gold handy just in case.
You will still have to aim at weak spots though.

Wait until youre matched 1 on 1 with a defender or 252u in your totally stock  caernarvon

 

Im on flex hours at work after Labor Day I can go home early to grind tanks or stay at my park building as we have money left over in the budget. My manager is asking us to stay just to burn up the budget so we don't have any left over and as a fool have been leaving early to grind this line. I may as well stay and watch a movie and use the money to free xp with gold rather than going through any more torture. Im bringing in my DVD player today. Ive had enough of this sh_t grind.

 

Ive had some great 3500+ damage games but the tank just cant carry enough of these platoons that purchase tier 8 premiums wo having any battles played who completely throw the game.

 

I will not play the conqueror stock. I want the S. Conq for ranked battles and something that can stand up to these OP reward tanks.

I don't understand what people complain about with the Brit heavy line. I kicked butt in all of them. Okay, did just 'alright' in the Churchill I. But the entire line has been pretty awesome.  The BP actually has some armor on it for a change. And definitely get a spall liner on them. They are big and slow so arty likes to pick on you.

 

I loved the BP, it is an awesome tank.

You mean the armor that allows you to be tracked and penned directly from the front? You mean that armor?

The stock Conq gun has 2800 DPM, which is insane. May have to sling prem in it though, as the pen isn't that great. But when you meet another heavy that you can pen, you tear it apart. The gun is fast enough that the fools who try to play peek a boom get hit twice, and if you track them and they don't have their repair kit up, it's GG for them. I debated on which gun to use even when I researched the top gun, but ultimately went with the lower DPM upgrade b/c the stock gun kind of sucks when facing tier 10s. If I was guaranteed tier 9 and lower, the stock gun is far superior.

The BP is surprisingly bouncy.

It's tough, with it's no pen gun and surprisingly you get to keep that gun to Tier 8 also.  As Gomer  Pyle said: "SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE."

What???  You're going to take advantage of Real Life Opportunities to enhance your gaming experience, but give up Gaming Life to do so???

 

What kind of priorities are THOSE???  :facepalm:

 

:bajan:  (musical interlude)

 

Back to the OP - I'll join the minority here, for what my horribly stat-colored opinion is worth, and say that I enjoyed the British mid-tier heavies.  Wouldn't disagree with omi5cron that there's a lot to be said for an ability to RUN AWAYYYY!!!!! at times, but I also like leading the push with a fair amount of armor and HP.  I never had to suffer Atragon's grind, since I usually FXP my way to the middle or top, and enjoy the CaernAX.  Oddly, the SConk did not work for me, but it was earlier on, when I was oranger than I am now, and I've bought it back to give it a test-drive again since it's on sale.

So, from what I gather from the multiple posts here is that the Black Prince is the British equivalent of the Czech TVP VTU. Good to know. It's a "skip-it and forget-it" tank.
