Cromwell excels in anti-scout and denying the enemy good areas of the map. It is fast enough and the gun is good enough to take out anything competing with prime map positions. While there, you can use its amazing DPM to rain fire from that position if possible.

 

Games are usually won or lost at the start and the Cromwell is one of the best tier 6s for that early game influence.

A well played crommie wins battles. That's one of the reasons it's loved by many good players. It's not one of those tanks that is hard capped as far as influence.

i dont find early game to work... its more of a endgame player, hunt arty, lonely meds or heavies. just camp at the start to farm dmg then do the hunting. but its ok to do at the early game with a wolfpack

my tactics exactly. i charge and let the RoF compensate for the accuracy. its best to have a friendly or two cover for you. i read a different crommie guide that said the crommie is especially deadly in wolfpacks. in my wolfpacks i usually have a Leo and a T-34-85 along with me, or sometimes another crommie or a T-50-2. other tanks cover for me whilst i charge like a kamikaze attack and ram if i can, but often shoot and ram at the same time. and just brawl extremely aggressively. thats just how i cromwell.

 

Triple-Cromwell wolfpacks were a bane for isolated tier 8's back when 3/5/7 was very common. Imagine an autoloader that doesn't run out of ammo...

 

Also, upload an image via Imgur to get a link to the image itself, then paste link in the "Image" button.

The problem with late game influence is that you are giving the rest of the influence to the pubbies. Take hold early and don't let go. If you want to win that is. If you just want to farm wn8 then camp.

For some late ideas, your crew skills depend on how you use it. 

 

If you redline snipe from behind everyone then use GLD, vents and optics. Also use camo. Or just forget trying to turn a brawling masterpiece into a bad TD. The low alpha means you will have to expose yourself constantly to get damage. Sniping TDs do a lot better with a big alpha strike every so often, not a barrage of tiny pin-pricks.

 

Sniping in a Crommie is like keeping an Orca in your backyard swimming pool. Let it out into its natural habitat.

 

If you use it like the vast majority of people then its all about brawling - close range DPM. Set it up like Ezz and most of the others have recommended. Early pressure and map control win games and the Crommie(B) excels at that. I averaged 2.3 spots per game in my CrommieB with a 62% WR. The Crommie was played very early in my scrub days and still managed a 55% WR in it.

 

Because you are brawling, prioritising repairs over camo is the wise choice. You are definitely going to be spotted when you are brawling, so camo gives you bugger all benefit. Gun handling skills on driver and gunner will help, but you are generally so close it won't matter - they will help you slightly longer range fights.   

 

And get controlled impact. A Crommie will kill a full health T37 with one shot and a followup ram. Get controlled impact.

Used the derp gun one time for fun, when AA+ or whatever use to legal (unlike now). Got a TG acting like an SPG, missing targets and killing something else. Much fun.
