There were a few posts last thread wondering if the 704 is just better than the 268, side by side. I definitely do not think the 268 belongs in clan wars outside of an insane gimmick strat.

Looks like WoTlabs has one too.

Goddrat that's brutal. And the 704 gets to see tier 7 from time to time, too.

From what I understand the 907 has a very vulnerable weak ammo rack. I won't be able to play mine for a bit though but it's nice to have my vanity tank finally.

2PAC: Babbyland. Previously known as "Don't give a Foch", and then cruelly renamed by a corrupt moderator, they are out for justice. Does not do clan wars, does not require tier 10s, join if you want to play with goons. Currently recruiting

2PAC is once again known as Don't give a Foch, Babbyland is ancient history.

Germany : much less forgiving than the Soviets. Both heavy lines end up with giant bricks.
Note: the Maus line is horrible and painful.

This should actually be changed, since only the VK3001P and the Maus could be considered horrible.
The VK3001P grind is only horrible while stock (never play stock) and it is only tier 6, so who gives a poo poo.
TigerP is pubbieproof and actually a better beginner tank than the Tiger (for experienced players, the TigerH is of course completely superior).
VK4502A is a medium-heavy hybrid designed for killing mediums.
VK4502B is currently OP as poo poo, with possibly the best frontal armor in the game.

this is true of all the high tier T- series tanks though. A shot anywhere on the front right half of a T-54 will almost always damage the rack.

You know, this grind through the Valentine and Grant would be a lot less painful if 75% of the battles weren't tier 6.

The level of betrayal I felt when Paradox announced their new DLC tore something from me that I'll never be able to recover. They tore away my ability to respect anything, and they tore away my ability to feel human.

Ensign Expendable posted:

How are the new British tanks? Any keepers? I kind of want a Firefly.

I think it would be accurate to say they're at least decent from tier 6 up, plus the Archer, and everything earlier in those two lines is either bad or unremarkable (except maybe the Cruiser 2.)

mmkay posted:

Yeah, I'm grinding to both of those simultaneously. The Grant & Val are aggressively mediocre even though I'm experienced enough to make use of whatever high points they have (gun, armor.)

Calling the Valentine mediocre is an insult to mediocrity. It is BY FAR the worst tank in the game.

Nordick
Sep 3, 2011

Yes.


Not the worst, it's just plain bad. At least the 2-pdr with prem ammo can put out some damage. It's decidedly superior to the AMX-40, at least.

EDIT: Having said that, I just discovered that 729 base XP is enough for Ace Tanker in the Valentine.

I'm sorry, there's been a last minute change of plans. I'll only be able to make it to the first two battles. Mom wants me to visit her in the hospital. Previously I was on her "don't talk to me unless I want to yell at you first list". I'm going to take this as a good sign that things will start getting better now :-).

On the minus side this means leaving for the hospital at 5 pm. I've reassigned the captain-ship to Airborne_Commisar because he has seniority going by alphabetical order.
