I'm somewhat surprised by the lack of votes for the Wolverine.  Is the turret that insignificant compared to its deficiencies?

Just asking out of curiosity - I have the StuG but only American and Russian tier 3's... was trying to pick which line to push forward on.

TDs live and die based on their gun performance, especially at these tiers.  Wolverine's gun is slightly inferior to that of StuG 3, and both are quite a bit behind SU-85's 107mm.

What's a turret compared to getting a tier 8 gun at tier 5?

push germany, Thats mine and it is very fun to play, the jagpzIV is not as bad as most say, and the jagpanther is gold! Russians are good, but your only at tier 3, in that case push germany.  :Smile_great:

I currently only play Russian TD's.  Havent tried out any other.  The biggest factor is which one has the biggest gun on it Tier.  Because basically if you get spotted with 350hp, 450hp, or even 500hp you will be dead in seconds anyways.  Choose the line that has the better guns and then mobility.  At this point the endgame versions of each nationality are fecking amazing so to each his own but make sure to stay on one path until its done.  The grass will always seem greener on the other side.

Man I liked the SU-85, but the Su-85B left SUCH a bad taste in my mouth during Beta I'm very reluctant to go for it again.

M10, I have it and I'm hoping that the Slugger with the 90mm will make me feel better about the U.S. TDS...that and I hope the DEVELOPERS will fix the camo on these.

Spotting range and accuracy also matter if you play TD sniper style. I almost always choose accuracy, penetration, and reload speed over power.  Except in the T82. (The Derpcart is just too fun to play as a sniper)  :P

I got the 107mm on the SU-85.

The grass is greenest there.

Tier 4: Hetzer  - Highest camo rating in the game, has derp gun (useful even when matchmaking is bad), best armor of any tank for its tier (excluding Leopard)
Tier 5: M10-Wolverine   - Has turret, has derp gun, has Easy 8's top gun except faster and more accurate, exceptional gun depression, invulnerable mantlet that covers most of its turret front.
Tier 6: M36-Slugger    - Has turret, has best armor of its tier, exceptionally accurate and high damaging and high dps gun for it's tier, invulnerable mantlet that covers most of its turret front.

(I've played through all of these btw)

Tier 4: Hetzers gonna hetz. At least they have frontal armor.

Tier 5: Most people in practice don't spend most of their time with 107 on SU-85, which is a dog otherwise. Therefore the StuG with its functional armor, high mobility, and accurate, rapid gun is superior.

Tier 6: Tier 6 is a weak tier for tds, but the M36 with 90mm is actually best. The SU-100 and Jpz4 are essentially the same vehicle - not very mobile, and slightly underarmed. Meanwhile the M36 is, from what I've seen, mobile enough, and hits just as hard.

To me, in the tank destroyer branch tier 4 is exactly the same as tier 7 - pick one and you can't go wrong. They're all fun to play, all good at killing same tier and lower, and all can go full derp and hurt higher tiers. This is especially so since they fixed the Hetzer, which was truly awful in beta.

Tier 5 it's the Su-85 in a canter, courtesy of the ridiculous addition of the 107mm gun.

Tier 6, well, if it wasn't for artillery and gold konisch rounds you could write off tier 6 for the entire game. Still, I preferred the Slugger with the 90mm gun. The 122mm gun on the Su-100 is not nearly as breathtaking as the similarly 'optional research but you never get to use it again' 107mm on the Su-85, and I find the 100mm D10-T lacking for the task at hand - though nowhere near as lacking as the awful 8.8cm L/56. Either that gun, or preferably the way the guns are sequenced from StuG through to Jagdpanther, desperately needs to be changed.
