I have all of these ready to research (see topic tags) and although I'm leaning towards the WZ as I'm intrigued by a tier 9 Type 59, what I'm really trying to answer is which would get the most game play as I have enough tanks I don't play and which successor (Tier 10) would you consider a must have following one of these lines.

 

 

I couldn't find this topic in a search but there has to be other discussion threads that might shine some light on my question if you could link me.

The E50 is not on the list as I already own it as well as any others that are not on the list.

 

Of course the T-54 was the first tier 9 medium I purchased 6 years ago

121 is a monster compared to wz120. i cursed so many times while playing wz120, but it paid off :trollface:

my most hated medium is t54e1.

i wish type61 didnt have that tumor at its turret otherwise it would have been an awesome tank

you should also consider T10 tanks you'll unlock. wz 120 and amx 30 are heading to less popular 121 and 30b. also wz 120 has 3 degrees of gun depression with 122mm gun. so it is kind of harder to play compared to type 59. but still fun.

I'd pick skoda T50 or T54E1, but again check which T10 tank you need and go for it. good luck.

I played all the IX mediums on the test server, but surprisingly, the WZ-120 was my favorite, even though I only had 1 great game in it...

 

Or maybe it was just the most potato friendly?

 

Dunno, maybe it's just me.

That's also part of the question as I don't have a lot of playing time at tier 10 and already have a dozen and most of those recommended for the end game battle modes. SO I'm looking for suggestions as to which tier 10's are really viable (121 comes to mind as well as the 50/51 and T57)

Yeah I played it on the test server to get a feel for it and fell in love but then I have had a Type 59 from when it was the best Wolf Pack tank.

I liked French and Murican from your list, they are like dating the best looking cheerleader form your school.  

 

Nothing wrong with that; however, Skoda is like two supermodels at the same time.

I'd also go for the E50.

 

[followed closely by T54 - although I do enjoy its cousin, T55a]

 

From your list, my first pick would be the Japanese. I liked the T9, I love the T10. 

Never played French tanks, but I hear AMX30 and 30B have a very good reputation among medium tank players.

M46 okay

T54E1 fair but easy to kill

E-50 okay

Leopard PTA, fair but has become dated

T-54 good

Object 430 II fair but lacks in the turret area

Centurian 7/1 very good hull down

BC 25t P good,beats the Lorraine 40t when it was out

AMX 30 really good gun, not to much armor

Skota T50 good in flanking, lacks armor

Type 61, good gun, tall and easily spotted, cupola easy to hit

WZ 120 gun good but lack depression

Makes up for lack of gun depression with a really nice thick domed turret and as much as I would like the others on the list the T54E1 is the only one that leads to a heavy that could be CW ready. But I'm here to be educated.

I see the Skoda a lot, but I prefer the Centurian 7/1 (which was not on the list).  It was a stepping stone to the Action X and I find they both play a lot like the Cromwell did, albeit a lot slower.

The down side to the T54E1 is that it leads into a Heavy tank. So if your end game is a Tier 10 medium that isn't a great choice. Its also the only one of the rest that I have played. I do have the WZ researched but it looks to have a pretty difficult grind. There are a lot of high XP modules to research so it could be pretty painful to grind out. The only other one I am grinding is the AMX. I have the BC25TAP which is a blast. The 30 looks to be very capable so it's probably going to be my next Tier 9 med.

Wz120 is my favorite tier 9 med. But it is feast or famine. 4,5,6k damage or like 400 lol there was never a middle ground for me really. It is a bit of a bear to grind stock if you did not do the heavy line first, but the payoff is amazing. Troll turret. Mediocre hull armor (watch pulling out and exposing the right side AMMO RACK!) but that gun... daaaaayuuuuum!

M46 Patton is my favorite, personally.

Skoda is crazy good, but has a very high skill ceiling.

I have the Bat Chat, 62a, Patton, 50M and the Action X at tier 10 so not sure that there is another medium I need at tier 10 unless you can make a good case for the 121, 30b, STB-1, or the 50/51 (and if I wanted an autoloader wouldn't the 57 be a better choice than the 50/51)?

50/51 and T57 fill vastly different roles, despite both being autoloaders...  It's about as much of a difference as the difference between the BatChat and the 50/51.

 

T57 is an autoloader heavy (obviously), and is best compared to the 50B and Kranvagn.  Of those 3, the T57 is middle for armor and mobility, best for DPM/burst damage, and worst for accuracy.

 

50/51 is more properly a level up of the Skoda T50, as it does everything the Tier IX does, but better.  The T50 is best looked at as an amalgam of the 25t AP and T-54... highly mobile, great DPM/burst potential, not the best armor - though not paper.

One of the reasons that I left this vote public was so I could vet the voters if the vote was close but there is some serious talent telling me the 50 is the way to go.

 

I consider myself a fair intermediate player and only slightly better than average so considering this would you still recommend a tank with a higher skill ceiling?

 

Also, everytime I go to have another look at the Skoda it's over 350,000 to completely research the vehicle as there aren't any overlaps to make the "grind" any easier and I would rather not have to convert that much experience for one tank.
