Having eventually understood that racing up the tiers is not a great idea I have decided to move up one tier at a time, playing a complete set of tanks (one TD, a heavy, a medium and a light). Soon, I shall be ready to move on from tier IV (M3 Lee, Hetzer, Luchs and Matlida pretending to be a heavy). By 'ready' I mean consistently being at least 'above average' with each tank. What would be best at tier V? My inclination is for the Leopard, Churchill, Stug III (because I already have it having raced up to tier VII in the German line - I also already have the Chutchill) and maybe a T34 about which I know zilch. I do not fancy the Crusader because, while it can be great, I always die way too fast in it. Also the KV1 may better than the Churchill but the latter looks cooler and I'm a Brit so there's that too. I have had the T1 heavy before and done OK in it but those great hulking sides just look like a nice target. I have not driven German tier V mediums or American (or Russian). So, advice please. If it makes a difference, this is my playing preference in this order: TD/Heavy, light, medium (I play mediums pretty badly due to not knowing what to do) I also have an IS3 as an expensive toy and I am lousy with it. Not just lousy but I don't even know why which is kinda serious. Hence the decision to learn properly from the bottom up.
I have checked but don't see a thread on this tank, which I have just acquired (note, I only play blitz). I should be interested to know how it rates against other tier V heavies in the opinion of the more experienced. The only other tier V heavy I have played was the KV1 and found that to be pretty good. Apart from being faster, does the T1 have any other edge?
