    The M103

    Maybe it is the server difference. EU server has much bigger population than SEA or NA, so you see tier 10 not so often. I used it about 2 y ago, and it was decent with 90 mm if you spam gold. I played patriot and pretty much the same 90 mm feels good enough. Sure, you lose some mobility in T32 but you get invincible turret... My DPG and WR was about the same on those tanks. They play differently to a point, but they are still quite similar. Sure, patriot can simply decline the fight with those that can not pen, but T32 can troll ppl into shooting HE, and since the rep kits are multi-use,

    The M103

    True. The grind is atrocious, while the M103 is actually the weakest link in a nice line. (OK, it was the weakest until the E5 armor nerf, maybe still is).

    The M103

    Just get a Conq for a proper 120 mm in tier 9...and better turret all the way.
  4. Webium is the best if you want all the goodies.
  5. It was at its finest 4 y ago, and tolerable up to about 2,5 y ago (great TD nerf). I sold it straight after, moved crew to bufffed JT. Much better platform for 128. Even has not bad camo+ unnerfed VR.

    And it was slightly better than IS-3 ages ago (pre-HD)...how far mighty have fallen...everybody got buffed except 110... That pike actually worked back in the day when the average pen was way lower, and you could pen IS-3 pike with 180-190 AP.
  7. I am contemplating to buy it back now on discount, and sell E4 POS afterwards. Is it still a good tank in this armor-creep meta? Tier 9 is nicer to play, I know that...how T30 gold holds out vs 375 apcr on E4 tier for tier?
  8. True. It just feels weak to play against, like you fight a tier 9 tank (and not a particularly good one). IS-4 has more pen+acc so it nails me back by the time i finish aiming the roof. Still, if they removed (or buffed) the shoulders it would be less like Tiger P of tier X.
  9. Nope. 128 now more than then. armor creep means 352 apcr feels like silver bullets. Sometimes you are the only one in your team that can penetrate enemy over-armored heavies. 352 apcr goes through IS-7 turret, tried and tested numerous times ( Russian med turrets too, except the 430 U not that good) + you do not wanna expose to type 4&5 at all. just load apcr and snapshot in their general direction. take note that 128 has dirt cheap gold ammo, too. 4400 vs 6000 silver. if you count every time you miss/Stalin space armor eats HEAT, it is like 2x more.
  10. If you angle, your shoulders become weak...so no perfect use of armor possible (except hull-down, but bad gun dep+rear turret). Not being able to side-scrape like a boss on a rear turret tank defeats its purpose. UFP would be OK if it was a brick tank, but shoulders defeat the purpose. Add thin side armor and shit acc+aim time and you can defeat this tank by slinging HEAT(330-340 mm) at it with minimal aiming, not even letting it return fire, with 50-60% chance to pen it.
  11. Can I rephrase the question without being too much off-topic? If you would have to pick only one tank in tier 8-10 Conq line, which one would it be? Solopubbing and pubstomping, no CW. Goldspam is not an issue. I have Conq yet, super Conq unlocked, and just one british crew in total...I hated caern back 3 years ago...is it so much better now? better than Patriot/IS-3/VK 100.01 (at bullying)
  12. Death of vision meta/corridors should have helped a lot, but...everything and their mother in tier 9-10 was buffed several times in last 2 years. Among other things, E 75, one of the last original tanks to get buffs. It feels much stronger tier for tier now, and it is not the best tier 9 heavy... Gun handling+acc buff means its armor (unbuffed) efficiency goes up - you have to spend half less time aiming. It also warrants putting vents, even optics on E 75 (400 m vision on tier 9 is nice+ optics+BIA, you can outspot tier 8 heavies all day and detect tier 9 meds firing on you, tier 10 400
  13. Northwest: 31 Pearl River: 49-3=46. Chinese maps=Kitsch South Coast: 29+1=30. This would be good if it got the Mines treatment. Remove the base camping appeal. Beach was way better than it is now on Overlord, anyway. A legit tactic in a slow heavy to avoid being dog food for camping TDs. I wonder if the TDs would be today as effective, though. Armor creep+TD vision nerf...

    He probably meant 113 as having a (marginally) better turret than 5A. hatches are smaller, just enough to be a lot less likely to get hit in CW. And hulldown against meds is what these tanks both excel. 430 U has OP turret better than both. by a huge margin. hatches are even smaller, and almost a 100 mm stronger. you need 300+ just to get through, whereas you can pen weak chinese knockoffs with any tier 9/10 stock ammo (if you hit) . Like an E5 HD overbuff. Also, 430 U turret sides are quite a bit stronger. Just enough to expose to multiple enemies in about 30-40 degrees angle and n
  15. As a pubbie tank, Maus and Type 5 are still better. I own all 3 of them. Don't get me wrong, E 100 was my first heavy, which i acquired back in vision meta. It is a no-sell, and crew for my B2... It was always a strong tank, among the top. But in all honesty, it is outmatched today by overall armor creep. one of the last original WOT tanks that have not received buffs or "HD" remodels that either killed them or made them OP (or both, like E5)...of several gun handling/ROF buffs. "Golden age of E100 was after the death of vision (lets say the time of the great TD vision nerf) and befo

    Add fires. Gun is way more reliable, but penn and alpha (tier for tier) are down a lot. But yes.
  17. South coast +1 Beautiful indeed. A map where unicums surprised the shit out of me by rushing mid in a pair of E 50 Ms...when i was a noob, then proceeding to wreck the whole team... Interesting map for endgame, too. Bases had campy spots, true( mostly south one), but you had 4 access routes to each base. Still better than 3/4 of other maps where arty or big gun turretless TD have at least 50% chance to simply preaim and wait for you in 1 vs 1. Done plenty of missions here, mostly TD and med ones - going rather agro in 416 and ISU... Pearl River -3 It was a nice map after r
  18. Why it has a worse gun than pre-nerf ELC AMX? And sees tier X all the time? 248 APCR would still keep it underpowered, but more tolerable.
  19. Right here. And since 2 Comets vs one heavy and one TD literally lose on every single map... it is still weighted the same, man. It is now even more shit. pew-pew+ no turret armor+ death of vision, but also flattening of maps, and some maps with big hills are deleted...(Northwest/South coast had some crazy spots where you could literally shoot ppls turret roofs from a higher corridor).
  20. 2nd best in a cancer class/tier is stil shite. It is better than all of those tanks, Leo is about the same if you take a very usable 75 mm pew-pew, or situationally stronger/weaker with 10 cm. 34-1 is not a bad one, but module dmg+its turret armor is not good any more with pen creep. The rest of those are some of the worst tanks in game. A-44 is actually the best tier 7 med simply because you have no boring games, despite being hit-or miss (literally). You either rape ppl or die horribly trying (mostly nicely grilled from frontal engine fires). Tier 7 meds are so bad compared to great hea

    Now in 2018, we are how far from vision meta? 4 years already? How long it existed, anyway? Hellcats/hovermeds had like 1-2 years of reign in total? From the start in 2012 to 2014? it is roughly 1.5 years. I started playing in 8.6, but it was 9.1-9.2 till i dug myself from lower tiers (where tier 4 TDs had 400 vision ) It is a sign of getting old: speaking about relevance about something that lasted far less time that what followed. It was easier to farm poor souls back then, but much more cancerous for new players (and too many draws, even today enough arty and TDs makes this
  22. I have played them all on test, and they all suck. Tons of new heavies with sub-par penetration and gold-pennable in UFP (you need a good gold shell, though). True, test is a gold rich-environment, but gun on Pz.Kpfw. VII is just pure sex compared to those. Armor is situational, and sides are weak (when you learn where the space armor lies. I give it 3 months as a novelty, just like 0.4 on a med is a very bad thing. But the armor/speed/alpha/pen (340 pen is huge on a NEW med - remember those introduced the last all have 300/310 HEAT despite armor creep) combo will allow aggressive unicums
  23. It was buffed exactly one year ago in micropatch 9.17.1 by exactly 10% base dpm. And there is no "yours Panther". Right now it has 2,111.79 DPM. In comparing tanks you always use base dpm, since you can mount the same equipment on every other medium and get the same % bonus. before the buff it had 1919.81 DPM. Still insufficient buff. Meta changes alone ditched the tank more than a pitiful buff could save. 8,8 cm Kw.K. 36 L/56 had received way more love over several buffs (along with the buffs to the wielders to a varying degree), and now is a potent weapon...in tier VI.
  24. Use the huge discounts on purchasing selected tanks if you do the holiday ops missions - you still get 50% of their nominal price (normal price for same tier tank) if you sell them. Pick the most expensive tank in tier (generally heavies), buy them and sell straight away- you can get credits for free, just by buying them on a huge discount (for selling tier 2-7 you can get a handy sum, since 2-5 is costs almost nothing to buy, 6 is on 80% discount, and 7 on 60%. You can net around 800 000 silver, enough for 3-8 pieces of equipment on sale. better than last year, when you had to
