I got to my Hellcat through the Wolverine, so I never had the fortune to play the T67. I might pick it up soon. I just wish WG would let the cat have it's claws back. Still love it however and wouldn't give it up for nothing.

Played T67, with new crews lel, like 9 battles then sold it. So I was thinking of trying the Hellcat that I unlocked via the Wolverine route. 

 

I wouldn't go into the hellcat until you have at the very least 6th sense fully trained on your crew, so put a crew that you'll move up into the wolverine or t67, train it all the way to 100% on the first crew skill, and then transfer it over. The 76mm gun does OK on the hellcat, but it can be painful until you get the 90mm.

If you're bad in the T67 why not get better?

I had a 42% Wr in my T67 when I played it originally.

 

Don't give up if you can't use it well. Learn to use it well.

Like this guy said, getting better in the T67 will definitely help you in the hellcat, and you can do this while training up 6th sense too.

Type 64 is what the Hellcat was before it got nerfed.

T67 is the pre-nerf Hellcat at one Tier lower.

If I am bad at the T67, should I skip the Hellcat?

 

Per WoTLabs, you only have 9 battles in the T67.  Give it time.

That said, if you see me online, feel free to hit me up in game or come over to our TS (m--m.enjinvoice.com) and I'd be glad to run some training rooms and/or platoons with you.

I played hundreds of bad games in the T67.  Literally hundreds. It's easy to play bad.  But once you get the idea of some features, it is a beast.

I run rammer, binocs and camo net. Crew skills are very important--you want camo.  You want sixth sense.  You need to be able to do as much shooting without being seen as possible.  Learn to spot and pull back behind bushes (if you haven't already).  Accuracy is not great on T67, and without a 100% crew, you can really see that problem get worse. 

 

I wanted the Hellcat to be the up tiered T67.  It isn't.  I see you went up the American light line.  There is a parallel in my mind with the Chaffee vs. the T37.  Chaffee is about speed and pew pew pew (small damage/rapid fire).  T37 you lose that agility but gain a better gun (or at least until 9.18).  Given that, ask, "what did I like better, Chaffee or T37?" and "why?"


T67 has incredible speed and agility.  You can easily get into spots too far forward and get wrecked.  Hellcat, less so.  That said, T67 can get out of trouble a lot faster than Hellcat.  Hellcat is SLOW on reversing.  

Remember, you are a high priority target.  You have no armor (so everyone can pen you), low HP (so people can kill you) and the gun/vision/mobility that makes people want to kill you.  You need to be very much aware of whether you are likely spotted. Since you likely don't have 6th sense yet, keep in mind that if you see turrets rotating towards you, you were spotted (sounds obvious but I still mess this up sometimes).  A Pz 1c can absolutely wreck you, and good ones know it.  So even lower tier tanks are a threat.  You don't have the accuracy at distance to really pick off weak spots reliably.  So either accept you will fire gold rounds or be ready to just be a spotter in some cases (e.g. angled KV-1, British TD's, etc.).

 

It's a good tank to learn vision mechanics, placement on the map, scouting, and being a support tank.  All good lessons.

Between the Chaffee and the T37... I like the T37 more on an organized gameplay than on pub games. The Chaffee is more of a pub tank for me.

 

Bought the Hellcat and bit the bullet. Now, I am just doing some Hellcat crew training and concentrate on tier-VI vehicles with some occasional credit grinding on tiers -VII (Krupp-Steyr WT and Black Prince) and -VIII (Jgtiger 8.8) premium tanks. Still have to do that TD-15 Triump to finally obtain 20 Commendations for the Stug IV Campaign mission.

 

I may be doing things incorrectly but I play the Hellcat as the Type 64 (Yes! I play the Type-64 as a TD as weird as it may be; camp, shoot, relocate).

 

I'll check that TS server at some time.

Did not know it was kind of easy to get an Ace Tanker on the Hellcat given the optimal conditions.

Play more game in t 67.It is an OP tank. You will learn how to play paper thin turreted TDs.

I do much better with the Wolverine than the T67, the Wolverine is my go to tank when things are going bad and I need some wins, but it is not as fun to play as the T67 is when things are going your way.

Jackson is another very fun tank.  Never played the Hellcat.

It's not even the reverse speed man, it's just so indifferent from the Jackson, like yeah it has speed... woooooo

 

If it was forced to stay in the stock configuration it would be totally different from Jackson and make it relevant to own both for different tactical situations...
