Zulu, I just got mine. Already ACED it. Yes it is better in the original Cromwell. It's feels like you driving a light tank instead of meds. It's so fast and agile. I can imagine circling around a lonely Tiger in this tank while chewing its HP little by little. 

 

Well there's not much we can do if they nerf it, "for the sake of the game"...

I'm always a fan of fast and agile tank and tanks that can perform weird things like circle a tank or side hug. Just side hugged a T-29 in my E25 last night and can't stop laughing. Poor T-29...

Plus a new great crew... No brainer here.

 

No crew for sea looking at the prem shop, can anyone that has already bought confirm this?


 

In NA it comes with a crew, but is over double the price - in NA the bundle includes gold as well mind.


 

 

Looks like only the T34-rudy gets the BIA crew in the SEA shop.

All come with crews with BinA enabled. Tried 3 out of 4. Dog can't be moved.

 

 

Looked again, all 4 have BinA activated.

 

Kind of weird for me, don't need the crews but handy one day I guess. Excellent for those grinding tanks/Needing Crews though

So the crews come with 100% BIA as purchased - am I reading that correctly?

Yep, ready for the next perk and that perk ie 6th sense will go quickly as it's a first perk like the female crews I believe.

What the aim time of the Cromwell B compared to the normal Cromwell? Though the crommie is good, the aim time is abysmal.

2.3 for both. Did have some surprising bounces while shooting the B, maybe just RNG though.

It wouldn't be good for sales if they did that!

Awful.

Such a big write up, such a hype; such a let down.

Cromwell B is not any better than a standard Cromwell.

Those that say it is, haven't driven their original for some time.

The single biggest killer is the MM weighting. Often sees tier 8 games. Too often for my liking.

Wished i'd waited for a few days for the reviews before i bought.

It is better cause it makes more silver and is a crew trainer. A spare decent crew is a bonus. Play and MM wise they to me are the same.

All the games I've played in it so far, no tier 8. :teethhappy:

Hahahahahaha

And of note it is also faster in a straight line. Taking off anyway and for say the first 100 feet, unsure about when both reach their equal top speed.

Isn't the difference in the guns? The normal Crommie is armed with the (unrealistic) 75mm Vickers HV, while this is armed with the 75mm Mk. V. I find it weird that they have the same pen and damage, so is the comparison wrong?

 

Either way, this thing is really OP for a premium...

 

It says it's a mk V but with the same stats (and ammo) as the HV.  I too though this was odd.  Read on...

I also thought this happened to me.

Makes me suspicious about the gun specs as above?

Yeah , but, Westy ,its so team dependent when you are bottom tier.

It's only when they move to the right positions that you are free to engage more on your terms.

 

 

p.s. also had a terrible night on tonks, but last game was with the Cromwell B and i had a blinder. That was right after posting this thread. Go figure. Irony.
