Several high profile unicum have not much good to say about the K-91 but I decided to get it and try it anyway . The little experiment went well , the tank gave me the feeling of the good old days 2-3 years back when I was having fun with the T-62A . I could get to a good position relatively quickly and then snipe for awhile and then flank with my hp higher against wounded enemies .

 

Do share your thoughts on the good and bad of K-91 . I don't see a lot of K-91 in battle , is it really that unplayable ?

Possibility that the K91 fares better on this server, where the meta is more campy and tentative -- or so I've heard compared to other servers.

I would grind up to it.

 

But playing the Obj 430 II makes me feel empty inside, knowing how one of the tanks I loved got its playstyle entirely gutted.

Nice game OP!  Personally, I found the rear-turreted meds uncomfortable to use, mainly because of the shitty gun depression.

That Mastery was a result of a desperate attack on my flank and we proceed to fight to the death which climax with a very short 2v2 battle , surprisingly a good aggressive tank .

I share your thoughts initially but then the gun positioning and the relatively good -9 on the sides is very friendly .

430 II now feels like playing a tier X USSR MT...that happens to be rear-turreted. And have no gun dep. Or turret armor.

 

You're right. Without the armor it's just an awkward MT that makes the K-91's side gun depression look like a reward.

I'd like to try a K-91. It looks pretty mediocre except for the DPM so I'd be interested in seeing how it holds up. Anyone want to lend me one? :sceptic:

I tried my best and tried my first long grind session and reached 70 battles in my K-91 , I think my lowest dmg in a game is about 2k when I mess up . This tank really fits me well XD My current goal is to reach 100 games and still do okay in it .

 

T-100 is on my next to get list , I have mixed feelings about it since the gun is rather mediocre . T-100 fit the Tiny Tank requirement but the gun is blehhhhhhhhhhhhh.

The meme with the T100LT is shooting with pretty similar accuracy at anywhere between 0km/hr and 72km/hr.....

Thanks Ezz I managed to take one for a spin, I liked the gun but the turret is too weak which made it too much of a support tank for my liking.

The turret can withstand tier 8 guns and that about it , the profile , gun and some mobility is the selling point . Very niche but it fits my playstyle .

I was looking at those higher tier tanks and couldn't help noticing the -3 gd on one of them. Yikes! Well, I suppose it's not much worse than playing the KV-85, except now you have armour. Those mid tier 'A' tanks with the giant pagoda on their turrets looks to be a pain as well.

Yeah, for me the turret of a tank is the deal breaker if it's paper against 10's. I can work fine with paper hull but I absolutely hate playing tanks with a weak turret...

I came looking for tips to grind this line.

This sucks... I'm still at the obj 416... can't make it work... not sure if I want to grind 150k xp for another shitty med which i'll prolly keep in the garage for a few months while I save up some free xp and then blow all of it to free xp a couple of modules....then grind x2s for the next year or so b4 I get the k91 the next time it gets a discount.

416 is good for tier 8 except that it needs more ammo... just abuse its camo, sit in a bush and farm :)

Play 416 as a TD:

Funnily when the 416 came out it had one of the highest pen guns running around on a med. It also had head and shoulders better DPM plus a different meta to fight in. So while awkward it was very usable especially by leveraging its vision ability. I can't say i've driven mine lately tho. I basically shelved it after 3 marking it.

 

As for 430v2, what irks me is that it's nothing like old 430v2. Old 430v2 was a bully tank, rush up to their face spamming 330-pen HEAT, then drive to their sides and spam 201-pen AP. If outnumbered, sidescrape and stall an entire HT flank because lol Stalinium + 330 pen + DPM monster.

 

Now, 430v2 is...balanced. 248-pen AP is similar in pen to the L7, and it still keeps 330-pen HEAT. Just gotta keep its distance though because it's not as pancake-flat like 416. Will bounce off bottom-tier tanks, awkward in a brawl.

I can't say much about the 416 or 420v2 but the K-91 is about trying to get to positions that allow you to use the DPM and then flank . Something that I am still trying to improve upon but I am still winning more than half of my games so I am okay with it .
