I’m going to have to come in and re-review this one eventually but right now the Sphinx is the Worst of the Tier 10 vehicles in Armored Warfare and here is why.
Aw, I really wanted the SPHINX.. As usual a Great Review! U Rock!
Hi Fiaura the T-15 pens the Challenger 2 ATDU frontally weakspot under the gun. Did you send me a message I just woke up.
And above the ERA on the side
Great one Fiaura I didn’t expect that one. thnx bigtime!!!!
Our battalion has dubbed the M8 as ISIS
Wink, wink, I am not following your evil schemes, because I have to run to work now! Or bike, rather.
I want that truck….
But..But it´s good for PVE at least no?
get sphinx just for its looks.
So let me get this straight. You are saying that the fact that the sphinx does not have the same firepower as an MBT, and that it cannot kill anything in one clip, and the fact that it cannot penetrate MBT from the front or sides, means it’s underpowerd. What? You do realize that it has a 40 mm auto-gun, not a 120 mm rail gun. Granted tier 10 is all over the place in terms of balance, but one can not make an AFV capable of fighting an MBT head on …The notion of DPM was fine in WOT, but in a game with actual amour on tanks I think it’s an outdated system to look at a vehicle’s firepower…hate to compare but, 2900 damage in one clip in 5 seconds…. hmm armata does up to what, 1300 1400 per shot and then wait to reload, what do you expect 700 pen and 5000 damage per clip?…
Fiaura my internet is down when its up again I Will get Back to you
u had like 87 supply crates a couple vids ago. how long did it take to open all of them?
Honestly, the Sphinx would probably be good in a good platoon in which the Sphinx spots and the plat supports. It reminds me of Light tanks in WoT, in which, they have no armor and they have rather low pen for the most part and get tiered as a medium tank of a higher tier. Their main role is simply to keep the enemies lit for the team. It becomes incredibly difficult for a light tank to carry at the end of the game unless the go up against low view range tanks on an open map. This seems like the same thing with the Sphinx
So over the CRAB how is the turning on the Sphinx? Better or worse? Honestly not looking to get it, but i’ve found the crab to have kindly janky turning at times.
the sphinx can have eye decals under the smoke lunchers. wink
Oh, the lobby of the crybabies in their light vehicles again are saying again that the MBT are OP, but they keep their mouths shut when the LAV 300 and the ECR 90 have a 4 second reload time and the alpha/pen of a 105mm gun (when both light OP things are armed with a 90mm gun), the BMP-3M has 3 WEAPONS…a 100mm gun, a 30mm auto-cannon and ATGM, and the 100mm gun fires HE rounds, EFFECTIVE AGAINST ANY TYPE OF ARMOR!!!! they can do 1000 alpha in a matter of seconds; the Centauro 120…DOES 700 DMG WITH SABOTS and has less reload time than most MBT of his tier, the MGS 1128 is BROKEN with a 4.92 standard reload time in TIER 8!!!! Most of the tanks reload in 8.57-7.5 seconds and are doing barely 450-500 damage (except the Russian ones, those are INSANE unbalanced) but because they have in Tiers 3 to 6 one quarter of their vehicles covered in amor, they are OP, right??? So eat shit and die, you bunch of hypocrites!!!
AW has more bugs than function at this point. In PvE enemy tanks not even visible until they take a shot – even when you’re bumper to bumper with them. Light tanks at tier 8+ auto-penning while on the move, but if we’re moving we can’t hit a stationary target from point blank range.
If ever they give the ability for AFVs to shred MBTs from the front at tier 7+ the game is over. That’s the function of MBTs – to be rolling pillboxes, point front at enemy and take the hits. AFVs should never have the ability to reliably damage armor from the front or forward 2/3 of the hull because that’s not their role and would make their obscenely high DPM guns utterly insane. They’re role is to spot, relocate, spot, plink at vulnerabilities and relocate again just as you did effectively. Is it difficult for them to recover from a bad team? Certainly. But, honestly, would even a C2 ADTU be able to carry when it’s 3 vs 7? Or 1v3? Not likely.
The PROBLEM is not AFV underperformance, but rather the fact that MBTs have hell trying to pen each other in the face. That’s why players who lack the skill and confidence to bomb around the battlefield in lightly armored speed machines bring MBTs, so they can face the enemy head on and sling shots.
Yet battles below tier 8 you’ll see a much more broad spectrum of vehicles deployed, because AFVs can pen pretty much anything from the side and rear, and TDs can punch gaping holes through the front of most heavy armor with the same alpha and almost identical pen as the armor, but half the reload time.
Good thing I am just at tier 3! I hope Obsidian fixes tier 10 before I get to it!
Considering that I just reinstalled the game in anticipation of “Lords of War” this doesn’t give one great encouragement. On the other hand, should an AFV really be that big of a threat to a top-tier MBT with it’s gun? Far be it from me to argue with someone who has more skill at this game in their little finger than I in my whole body but it would seem to me that a vehicle like this should realistically only be able to hurt an Armata by kicking it in the butt. However, the really damning thing here is that the missiles are a joke. Hopefully, by the time I get to this level (at this point my highest tier vehicle is a mostly stock Ariete) things are rebalanced.
So basically, it’s the panzer 2J of Armoured warfare?
could you address the na population issue, just start a dialog.
Curious… What does the shirt say? I HATE …?
Is the T-15 review coming? I don’t think it’s better than the sphinx, they are both weak.
This is a whine. I have seen this played effectively a few times. I have seen the T15 played and dominated the damage with numerous MBTs on the team.I won’t touch the T15 because all reloaded are easy mode to me. DRACO is ridiculousLearn to play the bloody tanks. MBTs are SUPPOSED to be tough to pen. Missile protection is not new but has a reset rate. Learn it.Wanna pen the front of an MBT, Play and MBT or TD. Otherwise stay away from that which you don’t understand.
I appreciate you. Thank you.
Down with the Pretender! Viva la Fox! And ;)
seems to kick out a decent enough damage when I’ve seen it . and it’s pretty fast little sucker when trying to get my chally barrell to line up with it. and if it gets you in the arse its auto cannon leaves you a bit wet around the edges.
