Ok, so over the past couple months, I started up the French Heavy line and have unlocked both options at the tech tree split at tier VIII. Which way do I go now?

 

I've played somewhere around 110 battles in the tier VII AMX M4 MLE 45 and have absolutely LOVED the play-style of this tank, somehow being rated the 6th ranked player in this tank for the month of November in the Ratings (I use the 90 mm DCA45).

 

This brings me to my question, which branch do you all think would best serve from here? I do like the french LT auto-loaders, and I feel pretty comfortable with that game-play as well, so the autoloader heavy line is attractive for the burst potential and mobility. I also know the 65t in the other heavy line is regarded on the whole (from what I've read) as pretty much garbage. I have seen/heard pretty good things about the tier IX and X in that branch though. So yeah, I'll eventually play both, but are there perks/reasons for doing one line first over the other??

 

Thanks!

Don't have either but I would think that you would feel right at home with either line.  In the interest of staying happy, get both and there will be no issue.

I haven’t done either line last the VII yet, but a clanmate played the heavy lime and despised the VIII, so I’d suggest autoloaders first, but what do I know?

At tier eight the amx 50 100 is better then the amx 65 t.  Tier nine is a toss up, with I think the amx m4 54 being slightly better then the amx 50 120.  Tier ten it depends do you like armor or flanking like a medium tank?  Which it what it all boils down to, the auto loaders are more of a big fat medium then a heavy.

Got up the auto-loader branch, the other branch is decent in random battles; however, once you run into good players, you'll get abused.  Not that premium shell on 120 has sub-par penetration....130 mm gun is even worse.

Do you like armor or do you like dealing damage more?

Well, with today's gold spamming meta, armor doesnt mean much anymore so go with the auto-loader IMHO.

Thanks for the feedback y’all! I will probably do the line leading to AMX 50b first. I’ve enjoyed the “heavium” feel and will start there. I will probably go up the other line a while later, and I might use my bonds on the Liberte once I get my hands on 1500 more bonds.
