The tanks are honestly too fragile now. Theyre fire rate is so slow theyre pretty much sitting ducks, more bullet sponges than actual war machines. The recent health debuff minda makes them useless now. Just three sniper towers, rocket defense, one cannon, boom. No tank assault short of 10-15 tanks can take you.
Id ask for better stats on a tank, but this nonsense is always done for the sake of "being fair"
Supercell, its a war. Fair is never part of the equation. Exploit, spam, mass attack, win. Thats wars one and only nature.
^yeah? Try saying that when literally eveything you try on a base 4 level below yours repels you no matter what combination or tactics you bring. The point of this game is to steal and win, not make oneself immpervious. That just makes this game unneedingly frusterating rather than fun.
I don't know. Maybe they couldn't save up the Gold to upgrade the Tanks? But the cost of level 6 Tank is roughly the same as that of level 5, so this is pretty unlikely. And yet the cost of level 3 Medics exceeds them both.
Oh well it was just a scenario.
I myself am playing with 10 level 7 Tanks and 8 level 2 Medics, and I can say they've done pretty good.
You'll still need some strategy to play them, like carefully avoiding the Boom Cannons, for example. Terror taught me to do so, but if your Arty and Barrage is good enough then I assume it doesn't need too much skill.
I actually find tanks require more strategic thinking. If you leave them to themselves then you lose a few. The strategy is to win without any losses through identifying the weakest point and the key defences to be knocked out with the limited GBE, then to flare them to follow the devised tactic. The Hooka strategy seems to be to blow up as many defences as possible and then let them loose with little care of where they go!
I have 8 lvl 3 tanks and 6 medics.. and a sniper tower scares the crap out of me... Its a game sure ... Put boom cannons and boom mines back to mass damage.. but the sniper killing tanks on level 10 Dr Terror is crazy (esp yesterday).. 6 medics can't heal as fast as a single sniper..
I used to use tanks a lot and then spring 2014 I quit then in the winter 2015 I came back and now they are completely different at first I didn't like it then like it was said above it add more thinking and good strats are important too so I like them even more though
I'm using five tanks and can take out people one hq above me!

Boom beach may be a war for hardcore players, which are the minority of the playerbase. It's undoubtedly a game for casual players, which are the majority. Supercell, as a business company, needs to keep the majority of customers in order to profit - profit, that's business's one and only nature.
