Wait for defender if you wan high tier. If not, take churchill 3.

They are rage, brutal without mercy. But you, you will be worse. Rip and tear until it is done.

No.

 

Do not buy a Defender.

 

Or any T8.

 

That would be, frankly, a waste of money for you right now.

It's really best to avoid any tier VIII until they've fixed MM, however you can't go wrong with a Churchill III. Had plenty of decent battles in that myself.

No you dont, while some mechanics might be similar both the games are completely different

 

Its a good thing to buy a Churchill III before stepping into Tier VIII battles

Churchill III is stronk tank, you should buy it, comrade. It earns good credits and has an insane rate of fire, good tank to serve the Motherland!

Hate the game, not the player

How much do you think the presence of artillery will affect your gameplay?

 

Or since you come from Blitz, how fast paced do you think gameplay is?

Like u, I am a starter here, everyone told me not to go tier 8

i got a 112

two words: NO REGRETS

really it’s ur choice though. If u want super heavy go mauerbrecher (not recommended though), all rounder, t26e5. Pref premium, go 112. Amazing armour profile with okay gun and great mobility.

Also same as u, I am a veteran of blitz, the mechanics are mostly the same except for a few changes here and there.

how am i supposed to answer that?

1. hide behind tall cover or try not to be spotted as much as possible

2. it's not fast paced at all, fastest i ever had is 5min

Retribute is right, blitz is quite slow. Wot is actually faster because of the difference in tank health and gun damage between the two games.

It isn’t.

but it’s getting a nice accuracy and aim time buff in 1.2, as well as a pen buff.

How about shot counting of auto loaders especially French ? Reload time of Auto reloading mechanics of Italian ? How do you counter high tier Swedish TD when facing from the front ? Its also about the large variety of tanks in the PC version

Add the two together. We have long drawn out games with artillery constantly pouding you. Cover won't save you much.

 

Compared to Blitz the meta is very different. I suggest a couple more games to get a feel for how its like, especially in higher tiers.
