WoT Supertest: Excalibur

28

Good day everyone,

So a new British TD has hit supertest in two variations (and for those curious, this particular beast was dug up from the National Archives by Ed Francis, a friend of the blog, who hints that we may be seeing some more bizarre British machines in the foreseeable future):

    This is the most ugliest thing I’ve seen so far, but hey, the one without 450 alpha seems ok. At least it’s not a tier 8 OP moneygrab.

    so much I want to write about the priorities we, the most of the players, feel the British TT needs but I don’t want to write a long text, let’s just say that if this is a sign of a future line then they should at least try to add the Chieftain and light tank lines before it
    the tank in itself look odd and with that said I wonder if the rest is more of these odd turreted SPG/TD like things or if there will also be non-turreted ones

    70 penetration? is that for real?

    VERY not a Tank Destroyer in every way
    complete utter garbage tank from WG

    the Tier 5 Stug TD is better in every way
    150mm less pen > 0.32 accuracy
    aim time 1,5 sec
    but almost same view range

    WG amaze me with what they do constantly, recently all in a bad way

      I’m not so sure, afterall at the same Tier (6) the americans only get 160mm of penetration on their TD’s with the 90mm M3 cannon (obviously using unhistorical, overnerfed penetration values), 165mm for a quick firing gun seems legit
      furthermore we have to wait for size comparision (WG should always release a render with a average height “human” beside it for a more exact idea of it’s size), if it is still small and get’s good concealment you get something similar to a E-25 with more pen and more DMG, besides way better firing angles, and 1 Tier lower

      but I do agree that it does not look like a TD, if I had to guess I would say it looks like an attempt to create a armed APC for infantry support (the 120mm DERP does help with that a little) but in the end I would like to have Ed Francis tell us a bit of it’s story to try and understand the idea behind it

    that thing looks so atrocious… but its good to be hearing ed for a while, now knowing ed is a busy person, he should make some gameplays time to time or even podcasts would be enough, the top notch humour, especially playing with Arran.. it’s sad to see what once a huge channel drop to just 1.8k subscribers, especially known to brief about the Yer-2 airfield crisis

    Too bad it’s not French, otherwise it’d be the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
