  1. I forget the map, but this is the same arty I used. And remember you aren't trying to damage guys - aim for the ground in the middle of a group to maximize your stun. You'll still get plenty of damage, but you need the stun damage. Helps if you have another arty on your team who can focus on the tanks you've just stunned.

Solid gun with adequate accuracy, probably what the WZ-120 wishes it could be. Also, it's a hell of a lot of fun to play.

    Adjusted for @zbran's votes: T-10: 31 T-54: 27 T49: 25 WZ-111 1-4: 25 AMX M4 51: 24 Conqueror: 27 E75: 25 Type 4 Heavy: 23 AMX 30: 24 E50: 22 Skoda T50: 21 T95: 22 + 1 = 23 The ultimate meatshield/defensive bulwark. Can help lead a push as long as you have company, the improved mobility makes it a LOT harder to flank, the low position of the gun means you are basically even with LFPs, so you don't have to use much sprem. It's like an Easy button with some lulz as a side order. Leopard PTA: 15 Object 430: 21 STRV 103-0: 21 Object 263: 20 WT Auf Pz.

This was the one tank I wanted more than any other when I first started playing, b/c 80kph zoom zoom. Then the great Scout Nerf^H^H^H^Hrebalancing happened, and it got uptiered while losing some (but not all) of what made it special, but without receiving a single appreciable buff. The pen wasn't enough, b/c it's basically a tier 8 medium pew pew gun - it isn't going to scare anyone. You can't bounce a ping pong ball, and unless you're in a wide open map with lots of cover (*cough* *giggle*), you can't leverage what advantages you do have. But it's still a ton of fun to drive because...zoom zoom. I feel a bit dirty for downvoting this, but I'm trying to stick (for now) to voting only on tanks I have owned.

    China - meds or lights?

    You want a hoverwedge with alpha? Grind yourself an Object 430. The CN heavies aren't as much carbon copies of the RU ones as you'd think. The typical comparison is the T10 vs. the JuanQuattro, but the chinese one is much more of an alpha-driven brawler than the T10, which plays far more as a true heavium. Which RU heavies do you already have? It's also worth noting that, if you grind out the JuanQuattro, you will unlock a LOT of the modules for the WZ-120 and do it using a better platform as well. You'll have the top engine, the third gun (which comes with the 110 at tier 8), and the top radio. Hell, the second engine for the WZ-120 gets unlocked via the IS-2. The module sharing across the CN lines is actually pretty nice.

I never got to play this before the LFP nerf, and that one nerf deprived this thing of its one real selling point (the ability to poke corners with near impunity).

    The P.43 Bis, 240 alpha ? Yes please !

    So 34 games in. I'll have games where I'm like, yeah, this thing is kinda like a tier 6 430 - low, meaty alpha, likes to brawl. Then I'll realize that my turret is pretty easy to pen, and I lack the mobility to flex (or escape) as rapidly as I'd like, and the gun handling totally lets me down. For me, at least, this is kind of a feast-or-famine tank. I'm averaging around 900 dpg, which isn't awesome, but it keeps my head above water, barely. It's an enjoyable enough tank, but I don't see it as any kind of keeper. It's not the worst grind ever, which is sorta damning with faint praise.
  9. So this is only the second tier 10 in which I've gotten a MoE, but to get it on this battle is surely some kind of sign that the really good players aren't playing it all that much: I realize it's only one mark, but to get over the hump based on a battle with 1264 combined...in a tier 10 heavy? WTF?

    No t20 love?

    And my best-ever ranking on NA: It won't last, but I'll enjoy it for now. What I especially like about this is that, when I first started playing, I read about the T20's mythic reputation and, of course, thought, if I had one of those, I'd be great! I wasn't of course - when I first got my T20, I flat out sucked - I was lucky to get a single pen per game. And that persisted for easily the first couple hundred games. Then I stopped playing it, b/c I was like, wow, this tank sucks (typical lack of instrospection - it wasn't the tank, hint, hint). But then I came here and realized the truth and made it a mission to learn this tank and get decent in it. It's not like I'm great in it or anything, but I think I can say that I can contribute to my team positively in this tank in pretty much every battle, which is something on which I'm willing to hang my hat.

    P.43 ter: it ain't too shabby

    I tend to shy away from what feel like tinfoil hat ideas, but...I get the same feeling about the 430. That thing hits things it has NO business hitting. Snapshot scout on the move? Why not!

    P.43 ter: it ain't too shabby

    I'll be curious to see if that's true for me when I unlock this. I just finished 3-marking the T20, and on paper it certainly has better accuracy (full try-hard gets you to .34, which is plenty good, IIRC stock it's something like .36 or .37 compared to the ter's .4). But the T20 does have uncharacteristically (for the line) high bloom, and maybe that's what you were experiencing? It's more than mobile enough that the bloom can hurt, and the aim time on the T20, while not slow, is not lightning-fast, either. Anywho, I'm about halfway through the tier 6 grind, and thus far I'm looking forward to this one, based on what I've read here.

    China - meds or lights?

    That moment when you get home and realize everyone else had been discussing a completely different tank than you, and most of your points are worthless/irrelevant. </facePalm> I actually have a T44-100, and I've played it - I'd still choose blackdog for counterscouting any day, but apologies for the multipost brainfart.

    China - meds or lights?

    I would honestly trust tanks.gg more than the wiki.

    China - meds or lights?

    https://tanks.gg/compare/t-44?t=t-44-ltwt Much more powerful engine, much higher power/weight, better terrain resistance == much more mobile.
