Heres a small guide on HT's. Hope u learn a thing or two! P.S. because i have only about 3 HT's, (or used to) this guide will be so under detailed im not sure if u will learn anything...

HT's are the big boys. The dangerous tanks on the field. Most hp in the game. BUT the second powerfullest guns. HT's are good as a second line of attack, destroying any crippled but not finished tanks within seconds, no mercy! But they are slow, making them vulnerable to arty. The best heavies are the chinese, russians and german, since they all have good guns. (this is being built up based on ingame experiences, so dont comment on this yet)

I have played for awhile now, and my American T110E5 has been reduced to a slow rolling, no armor, long reload, no pen. and if pen. no damage tank.

I have to say I agree with this. I was in several matches the past couple of days and saw teir 9 tanks pen other tanks right next to me and they were hitting the same spot I was and I didn't pen ONCE. They pen'd EVERY SINGLE TIME! I used to like this tank but you all are nerfing it out of play.

While I am on my soap box, let's reduce the cost to repair!!! Spending 20K every game to repair/reload this tank will break someone quick in this game. And that's not even running gold rounds. That's standard AP rounds. This thing can't even brawl face to face anymore. Might as well put it on the back burner cause all  it's doing is costing me silver.

If you cant aford to play the tank dont play it
If you dont know where to hot tanks find out
If you dont pen with the T110E5 (269-381-60) sell it

Yeah... No
1) HTs are not The most dangerous.
2) are good at FIRST line of attack not secoundary.
3)they are slow, they TAKE COVER FROM arty.
4) french and heavys ARE GREAT too, if not better.
Dont comment? Dont post noob

Another thing about the Lowe, I do believe that it needs to be upgraded. Not a huge one, but just as much as giving it a better engine, perhaps the same engine as the E-75 has, with 1200 horsepower. Another thing to upgrade would be the amount of armour. The 120mm of frontal armour total is, dare I say it, crap. It needs to be raised to a comfortable tier 8 level. Even the tier 7 Tiger P has 200mm of frontal armour. I think that that would be something to change in upcoming updates, hopefully before update 0.9.0. Thanks.

Sorry Junior, you can't have everything. Try driving a KV-5. Not that I'm complaining about my KV-5, but every tank (and especially prems [Type59 being the absurd exception]) has some weakness. You bump the Lowe, then you gotta bump every thing else. If I had that tank, none of you would live, the gun is incredible.

There is none, the armor is just far to weak at that tier.

the 128 on the e-75 and maus (same gun) is a great gun...alpha is low but with decent pen and ACC it is a great sniper....the German lines are not brawling tanks more a close support or link brake tank. they are far to slow at being up front and in your face.

its a meh gun, with its meh acc and meh dam and below meh rof and pen and you either want to be far away or doing some point blank dancing or the enemy will eat you thanks to the broken armor that almost anything a germ hev faces can reliably pen from the front

The Churchill VII is plumbing new depths of how bad a tank can really be. Extremely slow, poor armour, low damage, low penetration guns, it's like they came up with a list of the worst things a tank could be in this game and combined it all together.

yeah and let's put all the good stuff that was never planned for that tank, INTO that tank. Engine was the historically planned, so is the armor and gun too, and does great on the game, so don't hate the game, hate the gamer

If that really bothers you, it,s because you are not enjoying the T-29. I know that the amount of XP needed for the T32 is too damn high (I'm still grinding my T-29), but I don't really care, as I enjoy a lot playing with my  T-29

I have been struggling with my Caernervon and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for tactics.my biggest problem is that it costs 1320 to fire two shots that will most likely only do 350 damage. I don't have premium so I almost always lose money. Any intelligent answers on how to make this tank more useful not including sell the tank would be greatly appreciated. I have also heard that the ammo price for the Caernervon use to be 85 credits.if this is true why did the price near increase by 7x? An opinions would be appreciated

I can understand why you are feeling ripped off about the T29-T32 being a really tough grind, it does take a while to get enough XP for the T32 and the amount of XP it takes to grind the equivalent tanks of other nations is about three quarters (Tiger II:78k IS3:77k) but the good thing about it is that the T29 is that its one of the most fun tanks in the game and  that many of the things you unlocked on your T29 are carried over to the T32 (only the turret and suspension aren't carried over).

Im at a crossroads, i have the xp for both Tiger (P) and the T29, but the credits and garage slot for 1... so which tier 7 heavy should i get? The tigerP sorta sounds more like an aggressive playstyle which i prefer, but the forums and wiki seem to indicate the T29 is hands down the best tier 7 heavy.
They're wrong. IMHO, T29 is more noob-friendly, just find a good hull-down spot (nearly anywhere with that gun depression :sceptic: ) and fire away, however, a good IS driver will always find a way to get around him, use that heavium mobility to evade shots and use cover effectively, and voila! Only problem is if the T29 is hull-down far away and you have no cover, that way he can snipe you, otherwise the IS will be able to get up close and personal like it's supposed to. Also, that impenetrable turret is worthless if you're on Himmelsdorf and you can't go hull-down. That hull armor isn't exactly made of diamond, still better than Tiger, but that's a sniper. Just my humble opinion :harp: , please don't neg rep me any more

Have you grinded the med line? If not, then the Caernarvon will be a near-impossible W/R rate killing grind stock. Just learned this from the wiki.

I agree that the German tanks are underpowered.  I sold my Tiger II since the line was going nowhere.  Sad, the Tiger was one of the great tanks in WWII.  Maybe the line will get some love one day and we can begin playing those tanks again.  Also, the introduction of the Chinese tank line was a huge bust.  Tried them and sold all.

The Germans had much better military technology in WWII. The U.S. was able to out produce the Germans because they could not bomb the U.S. and we used Britain as a air force base. Also, the Germans were fighting the Russians who took 10+ million casualties, the U.S and the Brits. NASA is based on Nazi rocket tech: research operation Paperclip. All the early NASA scientists were Nazis. They basically spread themselves too thin and lost.

What are you talking about: E-75 is a great tank!
