Greetings. I've been playing for a couple months now. I have a Luchs about to go to Leopard and an M3 for lights. I have a T3485M for medium, A tier 4 Stug for TD, and a Grille for arty. I pretty much suck at all of them. I enjoy the arty and have some good matches with it but the reload time is horrible even with rammer etc. I like sniping with the Stug but that line doesn't get much better soon. I find the tier 6 T3485M pretty hard to play especially against tier 8s. I have no heavys. I have a token for a free tier 6. Should I get an M44? Would it be that much better than the Grille? Or should I spend it on a KV2 and try heavies even though I suck with the 85m? Or should I go into another TD line?

Thanks.

IS-7 line should be one of the best to do when starting. Good, great and forgiving tanks.

The 3485M is a premium so you can't grind other than crew experience and credits in it. Go for M44 if ypu enjoy artillery because M44 is OP and the rest of the line is decent.

As much as I hate to say it, I think you should go M44. Of all the tanks you listed, you only mentioned really liking the Grille. So, go with what you like.

Might want to slow down and wait until you don't "pretty much suck at all of them" (your words). This isn't a race to tier 10. Most new players have it in their heads if they can just reach tier 10 and have the top tank in the game they will be a better player. It doesn't work that way and in fact you will find it's worse. I'm worried you are setting yourself up for a big let down. WOT needs more players who stay for the long run. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

Yeah, you shouldn't be going past tier 5 right now.
Stay at tier 1-5 to learn the maps and get a feel for the game, grind up your crews and get credits to buy equipment. Going above tier 5 right now you're not going to have a good time, and your teams aren't going to have a good time with you.

I'd suggest sticking to Russian heavy tanks for now, avoid light tanks and TDs and maybe play some mediums.

I didn’t really start learning a whole lot until I got a KV-1 and a M4 and spent some time playing those. I’d find a good heavy, medium, TD, etc at around tier 5 and play them a lot. I also vote for the M44 being your tier 6 token. It’s good even when stock.

I grinded up (ground?) to the tech tree T3485 and even researched it. Then they gave me 2 weeks of a 35m rental with a 110% crew so I bought it. It's the only real money I've spent. I appreciate the feedback and advoce. I'll probably play the lights and 85M till I get better then decide.
You're right about it not being a race and I'm making decent credits now without shooting gold. I will say I tried a few rounds in the 85M and it was awesome!

I can grind to the KV1. I'm almost done with the BT-5. I don't want to grind to the M44 though.

Get the M44 for tier-VI. It's tier-VIII and -IX are awesome. And Brother-in-Arms perk is a great first skill for the crews.

DEFINITELY get the M44. Especially if you're planning to do the SPG missions. It's also a great credit maker.
