I love the tank and I have some really good games in it, (in my eyes), but my average game in it is exactly that, average. So I want to ask you all for some advice on what I should do to have good or great games every game.

Well, I don't have one, but I'd say on of the biggest problems with SP drivers is a lack of situational awareness and rarely using gun depression to hide anything not covered by panther armour.

Yeah, I'm an Ace Combat nut.

mid range engagement, liberal gold use, avoid showing side at any angle other than ricochet/auto-bounce

 

even easier than IS-6

Yeah what Kuro said. Don't be afraid to spam gold when you are in a tricky situation (170 AP pen does NOT cut it), use that gun depression and make sure you stay aware at all times so people can't shoot your squishy sides.

HOW do you have ONLY 1 HIGH CALIBUR MEDAL after 5k games ???? :medal:
Just go ham when you are top tier no need to spam gold amo, at low tier go with allied mediums and try to farm damage


Shad0: You know that time when there was a King Tiger on 2 HP and another King Tiger on Full life ? And the King Tiger rammed uphill in slow motion, for 1 HP and then kept fail ramming until he was killed by the a 1 Hit point tank. Was the stupidest tank ever
Shad0: You are now that Noob KingTiger
Me: D:

I have played this tank 100% solo and got it 3 marked.

My solo winrate after 199 games in it is 63% and that was a drop from around 67% at the end simply due to a horrible run

I would pretty much always just go with heavies, and make sure im never alone since side armor is shit, and its easy to flank it,

get up close and make sure you influence the main engagement. The armor is super strong but if you let enemies aim they will pen you.

remember you have a weak spot on the front upper plate as well as the cupolas, anyone who knows where to shot will pen.

 

Make sure after you fire you keep moving your gun up and down as it will make the cupolas harder to hit due to the riot shield.

When you move it up though you do expose the turret ring so you just need to experiment and get good at it I guess. 

 

You do need map awareness in this tank though as once you have gone up a flank you need to very quickly decide if you need to go back and defend or push on.

You cant get stuck in no mans land as its simply to slow. 

 

And dont be scared of firing APCR at any target you think "you might not pen" 

I think there might be a highlight on my thread here on the forum with a SP ace tanker game.

No need to mention something so obvious. :P

 

Also, need to move this thread to the correct place.

 

Moved to a more appropriate sub-forum.

The SP is like a claymore -  "front towards enemy"

Win.
