I’ve heard both lines are good, but what line do I go down? I am currently at tier 7 with 25k till IS3. I don’t mind bad hull armour, but I am a fan of turret armour, and I prefer guns with decent accuracy.

Sounds a lot like you've answered your own question - ie go the T10 and 277.

both have similarities, but if you want more dpm little bit less armour and high tank speed, go for obj 277, if is-7, better armour but kinda sluggish tank, but the top speed almost the same as the 277

 

but for starters ill go for is-7, cause you need to learn how to side scrape very well

I can already imagine what will happen...

 

*noob tries to sidescrape in pub*

 

*noob blocks half his team from using the corner properly and causes them to overexpose*

 

*team dies*

How many TXs do you have OP? Have you played much TX? If not, I'd recommend the IS7 first. It's not quite idiot-proof, but it's a lot closer to being so than the 277.

LT-playing masochist. It's too much fun to be a mosquito.

Thanks, I'll probably go Obj 277 cos i already have the IS7 on wotb. Ik they're not the same thing, but playstyle is probably similar, and I know how to sidescrape, considering i do it 24/7 in my IS, with good results. And yes, i use it against high tiers. Really easy to bait shots from those prammo spammers.

If you consider HT mission, IS7 hulldown ability are not really good now. When you go hulldown, almost nobody will shoot you, save from HE spammer, and arty.

if you sidescrape without doing damage back to enemy tanks, you are doing something wrong. whats more important is damage, not blocked damage. Cause damage wins you games, not block damage.

No no no no.

 

On the new map Minsk IS7 is a hull down monster and you will bounce a craptonne of damage. I've played the IS7 a fair bit of late and its been a lot of fun, getting a 71% WR in it over the last 2 months. I did the bounce 40 rounds mission in 4 games with 1 bonus from the secondary (I only got a 21% survival rate yesterday because red wine). I've noticed that the IS4 is getting more bounces than the IS7, maybe because they are much rarer on the battlefield. 

 

I'm about to unlock the 277 so will be able to compare.

'damage is damage' quote by 1stwarlord

 

I reckon tanks have an offensive and defensive task to do each battle.

 

Doing damage is very important, but I also think that bouncing damage is important for the team as well. From a mathematical point of view, you start a snowball when your team has more potential to damage the enemy than they do. You can achieve this by killing a tank, or making some of his fire ineffective.

 

If you are consistently bouncing enemy tanks, you have effectively taken their guns out of the game. Every shot you bounce is potential damage which your team does not have to face. This is less important if you only have one tank shooting at you.

 

And if you have held up a flank then bouncing for a while so your team can get an overmatch somewhere else might be exactly the right thing to do.

 

But overall you do have to deal damage, you can not win this game on points.

^that's under the assumption that pubbies know how to shoot. Otherwise you'd only delay the match.

When you spam premium ammo like 95% of the top players do who needs to know how to shoot?

The player does. That's why the bads who spam premium ammo 95% of the time remain bad.
