Tier 10 clan wars is tier 10 tanks only now.  That means no mroe M53/55.  "Vehicle tier must match Front tier" per the rules.  Will Wargaming allow us to use the M53/55 in clan wars ever again?

 

It seems that half the players I talk to say they won't miss the M53/55 in clan wars because its a good all around arty, but doesn't have the splash of the Conc GC or the accuracy of the Obj. 261.  The other half says the M53/55 has great mobility for relocating for better shots, to move away from an approaching enemy, and had a wide traverse so it could cover wide areas than the 261.

 

Personally, I spent forever grinding through the US arty line to get the M53/55.  There are only so many snack breaks I can take in one day to grind arty and play with one hand.  Now after all that work, I can't use the M53/55 in clan wars.  Ina ddition to that,t he T92 isn't used in clan wars.  Its rather disappointing that I spent all that time for nothing.  In addition to that, the M53/55 was one of the most used SPG's in tier 10 clan wars.  It obviously had a place among the strats of many clans.

 

Is the inability to use the M53/55 a major loss to Clan Wars and clan wars clans?  Will we now see the T92 being used?

Obj 261 will take its place on a few maps. Other than that the CGC is basically gonna be the only tank people are gonna want to take.

53/55 really should just be made the tier 10 at this point.

Hi

Aren't you guys forgetting one of the best tier 10 arty's out ther the GWE100 arty will bounce some tanks and also I have even bounces obj 261.

- its reload is good

-it hits hard and plenty of splash with gold

-it is very accurate most of the time when RNG lets you unlike the T92 where you can't hit a barn yard 10 feet away sometimes LOL

well its awesome arty.

But it is also extremely slow. This limits the movement after shots to avoid counter-arty and repositioning for better shots. I guess if you have a strat where arty can sit in the same place all match it COULD work otherwise Conc GC and 261 will be the most common.

You can field a team with 3 players short, No problem, but if you want to bring a tier 9 tank, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Since I have the 261, CGC, T92, BC 155 58, & 53/55 all sitting in the garage... I don't feel it is a huge loss.  I do enjoy the 53/55, but it should never have been a better pick than a tier 10.  That is just a balance issue that WG has created with the "arty nerf".

Why not use 9's and 10's as it was before? A slight variation of the subject, I know. What purpose do our tier 9 tanks serve now? A lot more participation in clan wars if you can use 10 and 9 together, 8's and 7's together. To continue as we are the other tanks are relegated to pubs matches.

I got to play the T10 bat arty during the campaign because of this rule, though TBH the M55 should be a tier 10.

WG,  please bring back the ability to use the M53/55 in CW as a tier 9 or just make it a tier 10.

so, what is the point of tier 9 now?

Soviet line has 3 medium tanks. they have expanded heavy tanks, soon there will be light tanks. 

The M53 was used because the tier 10 was worthless. Now you ram the tier 10 down our throats. Well, we found a way around it now you crap on us again. These crap storms called balance aka nerf are getting old.

Seems only one thing WOT wants, more money to develop cash tanks, or repaint cash tanks to sell.

it doesn't matter to me what tier limits they set, just be consistent.    We got a Tier 6 and Tier 8 maps for CWs, but not allowing a tier 9 in CWs seems strange to me.

This post kind of makes me sad. I only bring out " 'ol miss " I call her, when I get mad in games. I use it to punish baddies, and sometimes, my own pubbies themselves (go ahead T57 on my team, sit in front of an enemy IS7 and get derped twice while reloading, see what happens).

 

I could free xp the last 15k or so, but nah. This is probably one of the handful of tanks I did not use any free exp to grind through (except for modules). I will never sell her. She is the only tank to bring joy to my face during a bad day of WoT and tomato teams after teams.

 

 

I heard the T92 isn't all that great. Does this mean I have to grind out the UPS truck? Idk... hopefully, I'll just "git gud" as Heldar senpai tells me.

53/55 was never the best pick. Never understood why anyone would use it over a tier X.

 

B-C, CGC, 261, T92 > 53/55 It might have beaten the G.W. though. :trollface:
