G'day Tankers,

 

I'm just wondering what you would recommend as a good first TD line to go up?

 

I've taken some advice and started (slowly) going up the t-62a/obj140 medium line and IS7 heavy, but  have no idea what TD line to go up.

 

The 100 E3 and Jg Pz E100 are looking attractive, but I'm very open to advice.

 

Thanks

 

Smokey

Murican Tds (the turreted ones) are ok, but they are made of paper untill tier 8

The old german line (Jpz E-100)is semi mobile good guns but at tier 8 they turn into bunkers (if you go through the fernindand)

New germans line (WTF-100) is paper tank, ok speed ETC but herpa derp guns (8,8 at tier 5)

Don't get the JgdPz.E100. It is not really that good when you come up against competent players. I would recommend the Object 263, which is a sub branch of the SU-100. Its a really good tank and you can do decent in it. However, its predecessors don't really have the armour it does and heavily relies on its mobility. Remember, Damage Per Shot isn't always the best option. Damage Per Minute is probably the best indicator. Also, you might like the FV215b (183) because of its gun and turret armour. The grind up to the tank isn't too bad if you don't mind the slow heavily armoured British tank destroyers with fast firing guns.

My accounts: er.... half of kac?

2MoE tanks: idfk, ask the others in kac who probably have a better idea than me

3MoE tanks: I'm a poor boi and 3 marking is actual soul destroying

Anti-stat padding is better than stat padding because at least then artillery won't go for you

But the E4 looks like its made of paper compared to the E3... even though it has a turret, its got so many more weakpoints the E3 just doesn't have

if you really want to be on the side of RNGesus
go for the FV21b ( 183 ) 
that thing with Hesh is Meh on terms of armor and speed
but when you pray and have a sacrifice to the RNGesus for example your Credit card
you will phrase this game and go with the Wallet warrior's
Guys help me on this
do wallet warriors still exist? :unsure:

You talking about those 0k skrubs playing with Lowe's and IS-6s and such and firing nothing but premium shells even though AP in some cases better than HEAT?

People don't take the Obj. 268 to CW as much as they used to all thanks to the nerfs that they put on the tank

I hadn't thought of the 263, but it does have some advantages, premiums to train crew and it follows my Soviet motif:).

 

Is there any chance of a US premium TD being introduced in the near future - that's one thing stopping me going for an E3.

The non-turreted US TD line isn't that bad, you can sit back and snipe using the gun, or if your up against skrubs, you can pretty much wreck them with a frontal assault and earn yourself a free steel wall. I heard they were adding the M56 Scorpion sometime in the future, but don't get it cause its shit with 1mm frontal armour... APart from the T28 Concept, I don't think they're adding any other American tank destroyer anytime soon

Really depends on the map and what the caller wants from his tank comp.

E4s can somewhat hulldown, can be used as a pseudo HT (again depends on the map) and is a nasty surprise for teams that run a lot of E100s / IS7s   

Given our current SEA CW meta, it's doable.

Point taken, that its got a turret and that it doesn't have THAT shit of turret armour
