I have the AMX 30, Skoda T 50, and Type 61 and enjoy playing them in that order.  The only reason that the Skoda is not first is because I also have the TVP 50/51 and the gun is so much nicer than the T 50.  So I don't play the Skoda as much anymore.

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.

WZ-120 is fun but frustrating as hell on most maps. You will botch so many shots by thinking "oh it's a little bump it's fine" and aiming over the enemy 6 feet as a result.

Yeah from your list the Skoda T 50 is the obvious choice....but the WZ 120 is tons of fun once you get it decked out...and the 121 after it is even better although you don't seem them much.  If you're looking for tier 10 CW viability I'd vote in this order: Skoda T 50 and then T54E1 as both the following tier 10s are used.  I've heard that the AMX 30B is trash but I'm also currently liking the tier 9.  That said I've got the T57 unlocked, the TVP 50/51 in my garage along with the 121.

Skoda T 50 is obscene.

I still haven't been able to pull the trigger on my selection and now have a host of other selections to consider. The RDDT players I was playing with last night are recommending the Kranvagn over the other tier 10 autoloading heavies so not sure if the T-57 is still a viable choice and given the other tier 10 meds, would the 140 be a better choice than the tier 10 mediums these tanks lead toward?

 

The jg100 and the 268 are both ready to unlock and lately the TD's haven't really been high on my "Must Play" list. I've tried the Super Heavies on the test servers and another 20 kph tank just doesn't appeal.

 

The Tortoise is ready to unlock and I do enjoy the AT line up with fairly good results and the 183 was fun in the test server.

 

It just takes me so long to build 200k xp that I just want some value from the time (money) spent. The one dude may be right , put all the names on 3x5's ,close your eyes and throw a dart.LOL

Just to let you guys know, I took your advice and dropped the dime on the Skoda 50. I have to admit you were right and it's a beast. I'll come back next for the WZ-120 but this tank will gladly play itself to the next tier and I thank you as I can tell it will be a tank I will play.

The Obj 140 will be used more than in tier 10 CW the TVP 50/51 but they are both great tanks and both CW tanks.

I have the 62A so I've been unsure as to whether I "needed" another Russian medium and considering the rate of fire for both the Russian mediums, I can see that they don't give much ground to the autoloaders but I'm trying to draw parallel to the meta and autoloaders seem to be a necessity.

140 has good dynamics and has a turret that, while softer than the T-62A's, lets it abuse terrain to increase its survivability in ways that the autoloading mediums can't. The sustained DPM is also great for pressuring opponents - the autoloaders have a lot of burst, but the terrain they're controlling is basically free to move through once they're empty, whereas the high DPM mediums are much harder to bypass.

So are you saying that I still "need" the 140 as well and what is your take on the 430? Plus, I'm still trying to decide on which autoloading heavy as I see the Gold League players in the 50B but I'm trying to decide between the Kranvagn and the T57 to fill that gap. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated?

The 430 is typically the least favored but some are starting to use it for it's DPM.  The 140 is always chosen over the 62A for it's added speed and that extra gun depression really does make it work in more places.  Turret is plenty bouncy...as hard as the 62A?  No but you'll get plenty of bounces.

 

The autoloading HTs play slightly differently and are used in different places.  We have started to use the Kranvagen a lot especially if it's a map with a lot of ridge fighting but the 50B is also used as is the T57.  I think the Kranvagen is seeing a bit of the flavor of the month syndrome as well.  If you look at the stats the T57 has the highest DPM and most HP but is also a bit slower than the others.  The 50B is sort of the best mix.  Higer DPM than the Kranvagen and a good bit faster than the T57.

Thank you.

 

Based on this the 140 just went on my must have and probably free xp to make sure I get it done. I still have to finish the 50 100 so I have a ways to go on the French line and the T54E1 to reach the American autoloader (just uninspired to play those tanks enough to reach the next one). I still want the WZ-120 and the Tortoise just 'cause. 

 

SO you gave a general idea of the collective view but personally which heavy of these do you play in public games and which in private games?
