I just grinded from Emil 1 to Emil 2 in 2 days, those days of x2 every battle, so I was wondering what should I research first, the gun looks expensive, 50k experience to unlock and the rest in the same or close numbers so I need help, I heard the stock gun is awful for tier 9-10 and I know it it cause is top gun emil 1, that was useless against tier 10 so what to research?, the wot wiki has missing info including research and commentaries, also how good is this tank when it comes to mm?

As far as I'm aware, general rule of thumb is always top gun first, tracks if its too heavy for the top gun to be loaded stock, or turret/tracks turret, depending. Unless that meta's changed recently

That doesn't always work, some tanks like the m4 jumbo have awful top gun and top turret

As I said, General. Theirs some exceptions {The jumbo for instance} though in the jumbos case, the top gun isn't awful, but having to use the awful upgraded turret is.

I did fine with the first gun on both the Emil's. But if you are having an issue with the Emil 1 with the top gun then I would wait to get the Emil 2. Play user friendly tank lines and wait on the Swedish line.

Ok, having Ground the Line this far you'll have noticed a Trend in Swede Tanks....     They're Dog Slow, can't Steer, and Stock the Guns are Garbage when you First get them...      However....

 

Having said that, you just did the Emil I with the Same Gun you have now, worked as well as could be expected on a Tier 8....    Now it's on a Tier 9 with Better Armor and more Hitpoints, so essentially, still an Emil I but Beefier and a Better Reload...    I'd get the Mobility First since this will allow you to Relocate during the Reload and because the 120 Reload is Longer, you don't want to try and Run on Crutches...      If it Moves and Turns you can get back behind Ridges and Corners when need be without Difficulty, Gimping the Tanks because you want a Bigger Boom just gets you Dead Faster with less Boom....

 

I'm still 200K from the Kranvagn myself and I went with the Above Grind Path because I had already Been There, Done That and was Fine with it....     If the Emil I was done in 2 Days, I would think you should be in Good Shape too....

Nah, basically this.

 

Always go for top gun. Tracks/turret if you can't mount gun without them.

 

More damage = more exp.
