I've played it a few times recently, I didn't notice much of a difference though.  I'll have to check look at that link.

Oh wow, they did buff it pretty decently.  Right on.  And the crew does transfer directly over.  Ok.  Excellent.  I know what must be done now!  :D

Should be one of the following:

 

Object 430U via the Object 430 line

 

or

 

Object 140/T-62A via the T-54 line.

So the Obj 430U must be the favorite of skill players or is it just op? Every time I run into one it seems to reck face on everyone on my side.

I defer to the expert below.

The 430U is not OP. It has a pretty high skill ceiling to use it to the full extent. Yes it has good armor and a great gun. But it is slugish compared to the other mediums and has meh gun stats.

You have to actively hide the lower plate or your good upper hull or turret does not matter. As for the turret you have to make the -5 depression work, which can be rough.

 

But if the match can play just slow enough you can be in the fray of the fight punishing people with 440 alpha from a med.

I changed the equipment around and the consumables for the Object 430 II.  Dispersion at 100m dropped to .31 which is stupid good, IMO.  Especially for a tank of with that big of a gun.  I was able to acquire the last upgrade (engine) after a few battles.  I was disappointing that there wasn't a noticeable difference in acceleration, however top speed seemed to be higher as well as the hull traverse- I need to look at the stats to see what it improves.  I think I was able to get 1 penetrating shot than usual, however I didn't play but a handful of games in it before switching the crew out to the T-54 prot.  I had some decent games in it last night. 

 

Then I decided to switch over to Tier V and work on the Polish line...Oh dear god I'm so bad at Tier V...lol.  The 25TP can't shoot (dispersion is really bad), can't take a hit...the ONLY thing it can do is flex fairly quickly.  The depression seems generous enough, so I need to look at that thing and see what the trick is to getting damage in it.  I'm only averaging 392 damage per game.  After dying I would jump into the T67...yeah...I am so rusty with that tank.  I don't think I have it set up correctly either, so I gotta look into that as well.  

 

I'm not going to look at my stats for a long while.  I need to focus on the bigger goal instead of discouraging myself every time I have a bad night.

 

I was supposed to meet with a recruiter for a decent clan last night, but he blew me off.  Whatever.  Looks like I'll have to lower my expectations or just continue solo.  

 

Now to concentrate on getting the T-10 fully upgraded.  I'm not having the best of luck with it currently.  Figuring out how to be effective in its current state is proving to be challenging.

The polish line is so bad from what I heard of, low tier at least. I used free XP to get all the way to tier 8, even then that was not much fun. So again I used free xp to get to the 50TP and fully equip that. The 60TP is a gimmick tank. It has a great gun but that is where it is it. Meh pen and meh armor. Unless you can hull down, the hull armor is bad. Even when hull down people can still pen your cupolas like its nothing, even when looking up at you... so much fun.

 

I would honestly go for the t-10 and get the 277. It is such a fun tank with a strong turret. The 277 can keep up with meds so it is hilarious.

Yeah, I don't get to play as often as I'd like, so I don't have a plethora of Free XP laying around.  At the time I did have enough to free XP to Tier V, stock...lol.  Fully upgraded is still bad.  They are all gimmic tanks from what I understand; high alpha, crap pretty much everything else.  Basically it just puts the KV-2 or any Jap Super Heavy Tier VI & up on a more mobile platform.

 

I do have the 50TP Prot, and I do like it.  I've seen the 50TP & 60TP in action, seems like they bounce A LOT of stuff, but yes, the cupola is def a huge weak spot.  

 

I was hoping I could drop down to Tier V and have fun is all.  It didn't work...lol.  So yeah, I probably won't be diving down below Tier VIII until after I get my Object 277 and K-91.  Perhaps I could rack up the Free XP in the mean time and then bypass most of the Polish Crap.

Well I have been using my clan gold/tourney gold to get my free xp conversions lol. Especially when its x35 xp. When its x35 its not a bad idea to buy 3k or 4k gold to get some high returns on xp for a cheap gold buy.

It might be a while before I can do that.  I still haven't touched my Lorr 40 t yet as I am needing to get a frech MT, but I have to re-grind the Tier VIII LT so I can go the Standard Line.  

 

I want to first focus on getting my WZ-132-1, K-91, Object 277, and then work towards the Object 430U.  

 

From there I am hoping I will be able to have enough free XP to get the 45TP so I can acquire the 60TP.  Then I will start re-focusing on going up the E100 line.

 

This means playing a TON of Tier VIII Premiums as well to restock up on cash reserves.

Wow you are ambitious! I am going to focus on the T-10 and the T-44. Primarily the T-44 until I use up my 5x for a win bonus pack and get the Obj430. Then I am going to focus the hell out of my T-10 and Obj 430 Don't have any plans to go to teir 10 yet. As frustrating as the teir 10 matches are, see a lot of roll stomps teir 10 matches when I am grinding teir 8, the tanks are way funner to play up there.

So Question

 

IF a tank is side scraping a corner, is there a way to side scrape off the tank to support it? I been trying to figure out how to do it without blocking the tank in front in. Usually i just go someplace else but some times the tank needs my gun to back them up. Any thoughts?
