I'm a relative Noob. I am classified as a adult. I was a marine for 8 years, and spent almost 4 in the LAV-25 when it was brand new, hence my name here.
I have elited the KV-1, Hetzer, Pz III/IV just today. Pz IV, T1 Heavy, and Sherman M4. I recently got the VK2801.
I want a new challenge, and am considering either the A-20, having been sodomized by drivers like Jonnybags more than once, or grinding for the Cromwell. Both I have admired. I am ready to ditch the Hetzer, and the Pz IV. The T1 and KV-1 I'm keeping for good. Real moneymakers for me.
The M4 i will swap for either the E2 or E8.
I've unlocked the Covey and engines and guns and turret. Unlocked the BT-2 and most mods too.
Which tank next when I ditch the Hetzer, or should I ditch the PZ IV and grind for both the A-20 and the Cromwell?
I got 5 mil credits +, and used most of my free XP, maybe 1300 left. Haven't spent a dime here yet. I carry some premium on everything, and use it 90%of the time on durps, but only occasionally on long rifles when engaging bigger, harder tanks from the front. I camo what I am grinding hard, and always carry binos, camo net, and have a rammer on most vehicles that need them.
I have a clue about this game, more than most from my observations, and value the opinions of experienced players in my next decision.

I think you will enjoy the Cromwell it is a fun tank, it brings great mobility to the battlefield and is reasonable in all other respects.  The A-20 is fast but that is about it and none of the mediums that follow are very good (although not bad) until you get to the T-44 (almost there myself) ... the T-54 is what really has my interest in this line as well as the T-62 both of which I plan to keep, but I tell you it is a long grind to get there.

I don't anticipate going past the A-20 for a while, and will use it to assrape as a speedy light tank. The PZ III/IV has made me fairly adept at that lately, and i even survive more than most games now, especially if we win. I am either one of the first, or one of the last to die. That's scouting.

Do you have the courtesy to do a reach around while involved in that? Or are you selfish?

Start a poll and thread, and don't highjack mine.

so buy the covey, and grind the cromwell? How's the Crusader? Not too painful I hope. Seems adequate.

I didn't like the a-20, if you want a scout, get t-50. that was really fun tank.
Pz4 was a great tank, but after the nerf, its no good :(((
Never player cromwell (but from what I've seen, its pretty good tank), and why don't u go the kv-1 line, since you have it elited?

PZ4 is ok with the derp, but the 3/4 is faster with the 75mm. I often find myself scouting with it.
KV1 is OK. I really like it. Cheap to repair, and a moneymaker.
The T1 has my best survival and win rate. Real moneymaker.
I bought the covey last night, and it should only take me a few days to get the crusader with it. not real fast, and the guns suck ass. i won't be sorry to let it go.

the crusader is an upgraded covenator in every regard.
The crusader is a solid tank compared to other tanks, it will hold its own well enough to not be called crap.(use the amazing gundepression!) But isn't exceptional in its own regard, which is fine because the cromwell is a great tank.

The cromwell has the speed and maneuverability on par with many dedicated scouting tanks, and a strong well rounded gun with great pen. But to counter its amazing offensive ability, it has little to no defensive values. As its turret is unarmored, has no gun mantle, and is flat. Same goes for the rest of the hull EVERYWHERE. So you must use speed and cunning to defend yourself as a cromwell, otherwise you wont be able to survive many shots.


Now onto the A-20. the A-20 isn't a good tank, nor a great tank. Its only aspect that is worth mentioning is its fast and a scout. So it is one of the FASTEST in the game(72) and fights tanks up to tier 8. It sadly is one of the worst at keeping it speed on turns, and is a fairly large target. Its guns aren't that amazing either so the A-20 is a very dedicated passive scout. Really its just another grind tank that will help teach players about higher tiers and passive scouting, or just be a pain.

The main good point of the A-20 is that it leads to the great all around t-34, which is a solid all around tank and possibly the best all rounder at tier 5.

Sounds like you'd appreciate the T-50 and maybe even the T-50-2.  Both are extremely fast, agile scout tanks.  I looked at your stats and with over 4,000 battles and your highest tier tank being Tier 5, I can see you are in no rush to get high tier tanks (that is not a bad thing).
So I would suggest considering the T-50 and T-50-2 line to spend time on.  I have nearly 500 games in my T-50 and nearly 700 in my T-50-2.  I will keep both forever, as they are easily my favorite tanks (and scouting is my favorite playstyle).
