After 50 matches all ı get is 45 winrate.Problem with the connor is its slow and has no armor or a boomstick for fear factor.Youl get rushed immidetly if someone sees you.I did some great games when ı keep hidden but ı usually ı get spotted so excelent dpm is useless because ı had to get cover.Also the reverse mounted gun is an unadvantage on %99 of situtation.

 

Camping far behind usually works but not all blitz maps are good for long range camp.Any suggestions?

Look where the team go, spin round, drive backwards to place the team between you and the reds, then farm damage with your high pen gun, DPM, gun depression and camo value.  It’s a hard drive, but I managed a 62% WR from a 45% start...

If I do remember right, front speed 12Km / h (a pain), backward speed 32Km / h, anyway, I'm always drive it backwards until I reach the place. It has amazing dpm, the problem is if they spot you but you still can kill a leopard if there is enough space in between.

Good luck !


Thank you for removing timers and spare parts, now please do the same with Military Honor !

The Archer (Angry Connor) is a Marmite tank.  Either you love the tracks off it, or you hate the very sight of it!

 

Here's two videos from well-known reviewers, both good players, on either side of the Irish border fence...

 

sk8xtrm: "Love it!"

 

 

 

meadsy69: "Hate it!"

 

 

 

Make a mug of tea, make some toast, spread Marmite on toast in nice thick layers, watch both videos while eating your toast - and then make your decision!  (Hopefully not while vomiting down the toilet...)

Because you are driving it the wrong way

Comparable to the S35 CA - considering the Angry Connor's higher effective hp/ton ratio and lower terrain resistance compensates for slower top speed.

s35ca has 45 kph top speed and it has only less then 1.5 less p/w ratio.Btw s35ca is more accurate on the move, has more depression and it has some armor that allows to bounce leopard machine guns.Yeah connor has more dpm but  only by 77 dpm more.Oh also it doesnt need to go reverse when it needs to go somewhere.

 

edit:I have 72 winrate on s35ca.

The Angry Connor is the least noob-friendly tank in the game, that's for certain.  But that quirkiness is a big part of its charm!

Its good if you know where and how to use it. It can be devastating with high dpm, good gun arc, awesome pen, accuracy and it pukes credits. It is also the most clunky, awkward and annoying tank in the game. I like it a lot.

I really like the Connor!

Closing in on 40.000 games I’ve gone from just loving tanks I go great in to loving those quirky tanks, that fills a niche, no other tanks does that well.

So I’m running Batchats, SP1C, Angry Connor, AMX ELC Bis, E25#1, FCM50T all with a grin on my face.

 

What does Angry Connor have compared to the Deathtub?

1 it runs backwards, meaning if a red attacks you in the Connor you shower him with shells, while you flee, even pretty accurate fire.

2 it has slightly higher Dpm

3 It has way better camo values both hiding, driving and sitting still.

 

So put a camo net on it

find good spots.

Keep greens between you and reds.

Never be scared to move if targets does not represent them selves.

With camo net you retain 26,2% camo value, meaning that even the best spotter tank, you can meet will not be able to spot you beyond 214 meters and typically you have free reign at 200 meters.

And both moving and sitting still is way better.

 

Focus  alone red and dismantle him fast, pick of the next, rinse and repeat.

 

most satisfying if when reds have a toon of AT2 tanks expecting to rape us, and then you just set up shop outside their viewrange and rip them apart with APCR

 

Btw! I aced my Angry Connor day before yesterday:D

Accept what you have to work with and it will give love (and a pile of credits) in return. Fact; you have the fast shooting 17 pdr in tier 5. You can basically out gun every tank you face. You also have very good traverse, shoot back and suddenly you become a magnificent brawler when needed. This is Kolbanov maker.

You can out gun everything but they can out gun you by shoot he rounds.Especially pz4 and sherman derps will rip you apart.

From when I met you in match, I'd say it's mostly you tbh. :trollface:

 

It has - on paper - pretty much borderline OP characteristics, but it requires a very specific playstyle. It's balanced this way an it's okay - much better way to have an interesting tank than japanese pedo cartoon tardwagons like Lupus or overcomplicated space fantasy novel tardwagons like Vindicator. If you can't roll in it, it's okay. Neither can I tbh - and probably somewhere around 95-99% of the playerbase. However, it definitely isn't underpowered. The gun alone makes it a beast, add to that the camo and decent-ish mobility, it's dangerous - in the, very rare, right hands.

I rage sold this as a noob but I got it on a buyback and have learned how to play it.

 

As Frodo says these quirky tanks are great fun once you get your head around them, stick with Connor, you soon get used to driving backwards and it can farm damage as long as you’re protected, watch the vids they’ll help and stick with it, there’s no better feeling than breaking through on a previously difficult tank and you’ll come to love it in the end!

In reality not a problem (talking out of experience?). I’ve played it for ~500 battles and this isn’t really happening on a regular basis. Sure. You can get killed. But if you get derped frequently you’re either massively unlucky or you’re doing it totally wrong.

sure it has a very special playstyle. It will take some time to learn this.
