I'm considering buying tanks in a number of lines and am curious about how good they are, along with my current perceptions:

 

  • Free xp to 45 TP (25TP is currently researched): How's this line?
  • Czech mediums, tier 5 currently unlocked: Tier 5, 7, and 8 look bad/ok, tier 6,9,10 looks great.
  • American mediums: T20 researched and looks good (high pen), the Pershing looks decent and the two Pattons are beasts to my knowledge
  • Obj 257 researched (oh wait it's Russian of course it's good :trollface:)
  • IS-M researched: Is this tank any good with its rear mounted turret?
  • Also I have the Emil I and Udes 14/15 researched after the Leo, but have heard bad things about the latter.

 

Stats only say so much so I'm curious what all of you think about these tanks having played them. I'm also open to any other lines, I generally play medium tanks and heavies that aren't super slow (though I do want the E-100 and Maus, are those lines totally awful or just workable in the current meta?)

What is you favorite line so far? That should help to suggest something to your play style...

the T20 is a hidden gem and i would keep it if i wasn't at a credit crunch. 390 VR at tier 7 as well as 243 mm premium is nothing to scoff at, plus it's not very tall. watch for that DPM though, tier 6s and tier 8s can out DPM you so patience is key. decent against trading equal tiers and lower tiers

 

the pershing is very meh, usable if you like to destroy your income with 268 mm premium but otherwise doesn't outperform anything. as the case with the T20, your DPM is bad and 240 average isn't very good when facing tier 9s and 10s.

 

the M46 is a way bigger improvement over the pershing in every way, since you can now trade with 390 average instead of 240. the turret however, isn't that much better since you are facing tanks with way higher pen than the pershing, you will be penned more often, especially by equal tier meds. also way bigger DPM boost

 

the M48 is the M46 at tier 10, but way better turret armor and way better standard penetration, great pubstomper if you are top tier and can work in a pinch if you are in equal tier MM

  • Free xp to 45 TP (25TP is currently researched): How's this line? ---------------------------8,9, and 10 are good, the rest is very bad, and the 10 is only soso at that. 
  • Czech mediums, tier 5 currently unlocked: Tier 5, 7, and 8 look bad/ok, tier 6,9,10 looks great-----------------------you are right on, 6,9, and 10 are very good, the rest suck. .
  • American mediums: T20 researched and looks good (high pen), the Pershing looks decent and the two Pattons are beasts to my knowledge-----------------------pattons are fun, the others arent terrible but not great either. 
  • Obj 257 researched (oh wait it's Russian of course it's good :trollface:)------------------------enough said
  • IS-M researched: Is this tank any good with its rear mounted turret?-----------------------No
  • Also I have the Emil I and Udes 14/15 researched after the Leo, but have heard bad things about the latter.---------------emil 2 and kran are very good now, the tier 8 and 9 meds arent great but not terrible, the tier 10 is awesome.

Lately I love the Pantera and the T-10 but I also adore the Conqueror. Oh did I mention I have 225k free xp waiting around?  (with about 750k convertable). :teethhappy:

Well I might just play the T20 for fun then. The P43 Ter was a great tank too.

UDES 15/16 is on track now, so you could save credits if you choose this line.

I liked a lot the whole Patton line and the tier 9-10 from Czech line... but to get to 9 it's quite painful though.

the 45TP is good, provided you upgrade the turret early, it plays a lot like the T29 but smaller. Entire line is fun, but if you don't want heavies that have a top speed below 40 you'd best find something else.

Yeah but aren't those swede tanks not the greatest?

 

Tier VI Czech doesn't look bad and I think the T-34/100 is workable. Going to have to run a tank compare on the TVP though.
