Nice one Judo.

I think for a few of tiers we will see competitive teams bring mostly the same tank.  Tiers 2-4 are the wildcards though.
Both tier 5 and 6 would be interesting if tier 5 end line lights banned.

Personally I'd pick either a Churchill VII or a TOG for the T6.

Yes the KV-1S hits by far the hardest for that tier, but it has a slow rate of fire and those British tanks are capable of taking far more punishment than they rightfully should.



EDIT: Assuming premium ammo, my lineup would probably be - TOG II (6), BDR (5), Hetzer (4), T82 (3), Bison (2), T1 (1)

To me, TOG makes the most sense because armour is gonna count for squat if premium ammo's getting slung around, so go for broke on the HP. Use it as the sponge and the derp-TDs for the raw alpha damage.

Re-read rules. Only 6 tanks allowed. And there can be no more than one tank per tier. Would make for some interesting lineups depending on what teams wants. Speed or armor. A good lineup would be:

KV-1S, VK2801, T-28, Marder II, Tetrarch, Medium I. This lineup would be scary as hell because you have some speed with a whole lot of firepower. Hmm didn't realize they took away the tier 6 gun for the T-28...oh well. Still good pen. Maybe bring a hetzer instead.

This is Himmelsdorf...you are going to want to derp it up. The TOG would be a waste. Too slow, easy to flank. Smarter teams would realize it's just a damage sponge and ignore it to take out the smaller tanks. A BDR?! LOL. Horrible tank, not when you have so many better options at tier 5.

Would like to participate for the first time in a skirmish but I do not know enough people so if anyone have an available spot I'll gladly join.

B, assuming "T15" meant "T82"

The first isn't allowed because you're only allowed 1 tank per tier (VK, M4 and PzIV are all tier V)

If you're going in fast and dirty, use a AMX12T (6 gold rounds burst does like 800 damage), VK2801, Hetzer, SU26, T2 light or something to scout with.

Re-read my post, I only listed 6 tanks total, with one per tier (tier in brackets). Please learn to both count and read.

Also, BDR is a lot better than people give it credit for. I'll be honest, I hated it, but have seen people do wonders with that thing.
