Looking for some guidance on what tanks to grind / aim for with Frontline coming up .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

All in all I will recommend caernarvon,is3,t44,UDES/charioteer. These are the best tanks for each tank class

With over 30+ non-prem tanks as possibilities, what are you trying to achieve? Play the best tanks possible to increase your chances to level up your prestige. 

 

Otherwise list all the tier8 tanks you are grinding then you can be given better suggestions. Ie it is no good to suggest the Caernarfon if you either aren’t grinding it, or no longer have it in your garage.

But you can exit the tank. I found slow heavily armoured tanks were good for the first tank (assaulting or defending) and last tank defending the objectives when it's a close range fight.  In the middle more mobility, I've kept the Pantera so I can alternate between that and the Progetto through the middle stages and late on attack.

I ground chunks of the T-28, T-28 Proto, the KV-4, the VK B, the STA-1 and the Pantera in the last one and had good results in all of them at various stages. Most of them from stock. Just need to be aware of which bit of the battle they are relevant in.

Fair call . I did most of my grinding way back when there were only 4 Tech lines . Since then I've opened very few of the new tech Trees . Having said that all of the tech lines are researched to tier 5 . I have free exp , credits and crew so can just about start at tier 8 for any tech line . I've never been good with TD's . With Frontline now being a permanent feature I thoroughly enjoy I'm actually keen to get back into grinding .

 

T 44 , IS 3 , Caern , IS-M  from above suggestions I can do or have . Are light tanks viable for Frontline ?

LTs can work provided you play them right. Using the refill points helps.

Last FL I ground crew skills for the Nameless and Edelweiss, as well as grinding modules for the Emil I; VK 100.01P; and Pantera. This time around I'll finish the Pantera (didn't bother playing it whilst the MM was shit), start the WZ-111-1G FT and maybe the 53TP. Plus generally use it for crew training and credits (if the earning hasn't been nerfed too much).

lights are good for defense, you can abuse the mobility and camo to get behind the enemy frontline and farm enemies from behind. and when they turn around to deal with you, you can always run away fast enough to set a trap. also possible to get behind the enemy to kill arty

Good luck with that... I tried it in Fronties last time stock. Just awful.


4. Why not swap the Chrysler K? We've been able to swap Skorps, 13 57s, 41 90s. I don't understand why the Chrysler is an exception. They have even been able to swap Chryslers on other servers just not on ASIA. I'm willing to spend credits/Gold to tank barbie my Chrysler if someone swaps it. It costs WG nothing but you might get some revenue out of doing it.

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

It kinda got covered above, unless there's a glitch in the matrix and I am going through a déjà vu situation again.

 

The consensus was that it's slow but useful as a first tank, then too slow to keep up. Also good as a defense tank on the last line when you're being over run.

Have you ever considered collecting your thoughts and putting them in one post, or just editing one post rather than flooding the board with single sentences each?

Same role as VK100, AT 15, and T28 I guess. Ferdie and Borsig might be sliiightly faster.

 

Tier 8 meds are still generally boring and crappy as compared to Progetto, Pantera, T-44, and Lorry. Can't think of any reason why I'd bring an STA or rent a Mutz when everything I do a Progetto can do better.
