Centurion is a good tank... But the Average DMG roll is really really disappointing... At most situations I can't even kill a tank that's on 165 HP... [edited]!!??? A comet or Cromwell could do better... Plus the DPS is alright but below average... The armour is weak, so is the gun ring... So why are you hesitant about fixing the low average damage roll? Personally and publicly I would say that to make the centurion at least worth the grind... Increase the credit earning a lot... Or make it so the centurion 1 gets the same damage roll as the T-34-85... Or Hellcat.. It honestly doesn't matter... Just please fix the damage roll :(

You're Probably Talking About STOCK Centurion I., Just Fully Upgrade it until Elited and Use it As Hulldown Sniper Tanks., wait until you get 20pdr and feel the difference.,and Damage Roll is kinda RNG related so you can't do something about it.,i can't Talk.much about this tank since I'm avoiding it until get the 20pdr from Heavy Tank line., But if you're want bigger alpha.,  wait Until Cent 7/1 with Royal Ordnance L7

Just.,Just  Play Fallout., this gaem succ balls

Wont see any buffing, the WG staff are too busy buffing tanks that are already monsters.

Seriously, did the IS6 really need to get meaner when there are so many other tanks like the Centurion that could use some love in order to become better rides?

i personally think the Centurion is not an underpowered tank. its the skill cap to it is rather high. i have done 1.8 k average damage in it and this tank became my best tank in terms of WN8

It is not an easy tank, due to its size and paper thin armor... mobility is OK but the speed limit is low......

 

The gun is the best among all tier 8 mediums, insane penetration value and good accuracy..... but the low alpha is a problem in world of IS tanks..... 

 

I only managed to achieve star1 of 1.3 with average damage around 1600.....

I share the same opinion. just got this tank. free XPied to top gun and i dont see much problem with it apart from a little sluggish in moving. but i still have stock track and engine so cant argue over that. but overall its a good tank. gun performs with 2< sec aim time. hull down with abusing that gun depression is something you wanna do in this tank.

 

i show maddox in deletuce and friend video with cent and that's exactly how i use it.

This tank ain't bad. I would like to see a buff because I personally love it and hey, who am I to argue if my second favourite (behind the 7/1) were to be buffed? If you play it to it's advantages and hold back behind the front line of attack and keep popping up over ridges to expose your turret, shoot, and pull back you'll do great because of good accuracy, quick aim time, great gun depression and a surprisingly troll turret front.

Don't ever try to brawl equal tier tanks or even lower tier tanks because most of the time you will lose.

So like any other tank, play it to it's advantages and you'll do great.

Its gun is amazing and its turret is troll, you also have great gun depression. Good gun + troll turret + lots of gun depression = hull down, just keep moving

Cent 1 is a really good tank. You need to hull down really often. The speciality of that tank is its pen, not dpm

Excellent penetration and gun-handling. Solid gun depression and a strong turret. Mobility isn't too bad. One of my all-time favourite tier 8's

The hull might be paper thin, but the turret... that's made out of cardboard too. Hull down really doesn't seem to produce many bounces at all.

I'm not seeing the great pen, either... about half my shots are bounces, even with cal shells and aiming at grey plates.

boo. the armor is trash at stock because you need to snipe in that tank, utilize the gun depression you have in it and then use that to your advantage

Maybe I was a bit hasty. Gradually getting the hang of the Cent, the hard bit is to keep the enemy at a distance and keep the hull hidden. The turret can be pretty tough but some reds seem to have no trouble getting through it. I haven't yet worked out exactly who to be super-careful of though I have noticed T49s tend to shoot HE for 250-300 dmg if I'm properly hull-down.

 

As always I tend to run a bit hot and cold, some games will be 2k win or lose, others will be a donut or very low HP as I get my positioning wrong and get swarmed, or rushed by a Super Pershing (shudder) or an IS-3D or similar.

 

Argh. Anyone know how to post an image? I put it on imgur but now the editor won't let me, complains about linking to a banned website...

How is the Centurion I compared to the Caernarvon?

 

Since I completed grinding the Caernarvon it means I've already researched the Centurion I's top gun...

 

The Caernarvon has a tier 9 gun and tier 9 engine and the Centurion has a tier 8 gun and tier 9 engine? isn't that sort of unfair?
