My overall goal at the moment is to build my skill and garage to suit clan wars clans. That said, at my current rate of progress skill-wise, by the time I have the tanks my skill should already be there... SO. The tonks.

 

I did a lot of reading on CW tanks starting at about 8.4/8.5, but the meta at 10 has changed since then and I constantly hear contrasting opinions on what tanks are viable for CW picks. I'll list what I know for sure, what I think I know, and then what I don't know.

 

Fo' Sho:

-T57 (yes)

-T62A (yes)

-BatChat (yes)

-FV4202 (NOT VIABLE EVER NOPE LOL GO AWAY)

-Fatton (hahaha NO)

 

Not Fo' Sho:

-T110E5 (I've heard it's less desirable with recent patches and that it's just a sub-optimal substitute for other 10s.)

-Leopard (I've seen it used; word of mouth says it's mostly as an alternative to the BatChat.)

-Obj. 140 (Sounds like just another T62A.)

-E-100 (I hear it's used in CW but the people I know who have it and are in clans say otherwise.)

-IS-7 (I hear it's more appealing because of APCR and is seeing more use.)

 

I Don't Even:

-Tier 10 TDs (All I ever hear is that the JPE100 is a no. All the other TDs seem to get mixed answers on their viability.)

-Arty (I'm interested in starting down an arty line, but I never really hear anything about which clicker is the most clicktastic.)

 

Ensuant Questions:

-Is it possible for any nerf to kill the T57's viability? (I ask because I got my third nine in this line after the Cent 7/1 and M46, and I don't really want to have another garage lemon.)

-Is it worth it to persue the IS-7 for CW now, or should I just stop when I get to the IS-3? (At the T-43)

-Does the Leopard see CW play often enough to warrant getting it? (At the iPanzer)

-I will inevitably get the Object 140 and the T62A, but is there any preference among the two? (T-43)

-After I finish my grind to the E-50, would it be a wise choice to sell my Panther II, buy my Tiger, and put my Panther II crew onto the German E-100 line? (I.E. Will the E-50M ever be viable?)

-Which T10 TDs are preferred in CW? (The T28 Prot is my only high-tier tank among these; the rest are at 6 or less.)

-What clicker is stronkest for CW? (I have some in-roads into the arty lines, but it's all pretty low tier so there's no real issue with picking a line.)

 

Clan Questions:

-I'd like to give the petco family a try, but burdy is full and I lack el T10s. Suggestions?

Alrighty, to answer a few questions

-Is it possible for any nerf to kill the T57's viability?
Yes, but it's no use deliberating on what may or may not occur. The way I see it, I don't think they'll drastically nerf the combat capability of this tank, but if you want to be safe grind an AM50B

IS7 is a junk CW tank, don't waste your effort on it

 

-Does the Leopard see CW play often enough to warrant getting it? (At the iPanzer)

Personally, I only use good Leo drivers. It depends how well you play in it. However, it definitely sees CW use where you want a scout with gun depression (i.e, on certain maps I'll take one or two leos because nothing else can fuflil gun depression + mobility package)

-i  will inevitably get the Object 140 and the T62A, but is there any preference among the two? (T-43)
The differences between the two honestly don't make one really superior to the other. I'd stick with T-62A personally since it has a stronger turret that will bounce gold now and then

-

New e50m feels like a niche tank for gimmick strats, doubtful since it's competeing with the T110E5 for the same role (pocket heavy)

-

OBJ 268 and Foch 155 definitely, T110E4, T110E3 and 183 also see niche usage. E4 can substitute well for a heavy.


-What clicker is stronkest for CW? (I have some in-roads into the arty lines, but it's all pretty low tier so there's no real issue with picking a line.)

Currently, Conqueror Gun Carriage without a doubt. GW-E100 and OBJ 261 close second.

Few other pointers

E100 is extremely CW viable on certain maps, don't let pubbies fool you,it's an excellent tank with a well-defined role.

As for clans

Consider Relic Auxilliary,Foxey, Enjoy2 or Villains' subclan Thugz. If you happen to understand Chinese, CHA1

If you get into a clan that actually realizes that there are no bad tier10s (except 4202) then here is what I would get.

 

Meds:batshit/T-62/Obj140/121>Leo1/E-50m(these can be used for different roles, the E-50m/leo1)>shitty tanks

Heavies:T57/E-100>IS-4/113>E5/50b>IS-7/Maus/215b

TDs:fochs/obj268>E3/183>E4/Jagzilla

Arty:Conqueror GC>T92/261/M53.55/bat155

E5 is less desirable, but is used most battles.

Leo1 is a very, very precise role I've found, and no it's completely different to batchat, you can use them to support bats as they are faster than T-62a

62a/Obj140 are spammed almost every match, 140 is better apparently according to nogg

E-hundo is used when it can be used, it has a LOT

IS-7 can only really be used in certain maps, like Sand River IIRC

 

Jagzilla is actually useful, TDs are good to have, but they're almost never spammed past 6

 

if T57's inter-shell reload is nerfed, it will still be used, but 50b would probably be better

IS-7 should be near the back of priority, most people have them as they used to be needed a lot in CW, but now to only certain situations

Leo1 is used I've found at max 4 per battle, there is usually 2-3, sometimes none though.

Obj140 is better it seems that my FC tells us, at least because better gun handling, camo, and depression I've heard.

E-50m is a specialist I've found, like derping East Steppes/North Karelia, anywhere it can ram literally

I put a TD list above

I put arty list above

 

also [-M-A-] community can actually get gold, IGB<-M-A-, -M-A- would probably take you with one tierX

 

also here, have this beautiful image of -M-A- going into battle

261 best tier 8 arty 

 

No contest

 

actually for us arty fags who actually play arty, the best arty depends on the map.

T92 is god of redshire, YOU NEED a gwtype e on mountain pass or westfield (2 specific maps where that specific gun arc is needed). 261 all around awesome, tier 9 and 8 arty can be used situationally.

Agree with Worstposter-na - 261 is the most flexible arti while the big guys like GW-E, T92 and the british one are depending on the map. But its also the hardest to master t10 arti imo.

Bat arti is pretty useless, not enough damage and 75 sec reload are just bad.

 

Regarding the IS7: before 0.8.6 it wasnt used much, but is now back in action

I know the M53 (and bat155 55?), but when is tier 8 arty a better choice than an M53 or tier 10? Am I missing something obvious?

Just get the T-62A and Obj 140 first, you will be a sure pick 90% if the time.

 

Or you can get a Batchat and be a sure pick 100% of the time (assuming skill isn't an issue as per OP).

 

Really Bat's are the constant in almost every CW battle.  Some tanks have bits and pieces but nothing else brings the whole SwissArmyKnife package that the Bat does.

 

 

Batchat: There is no substitute
