hey guys! i'm not sure which way to go: the T1 or the M4 Sherman. I already have the PzIV and Covenanter. I only have the KV-1 as a heavy. I heard rumors that the T1, M6 are hard to grind tanks, as in flawed.

Please share some knowledge! Thank you.

despite those 2 being my first t5 and t6 respectivly it was actually a fun grind specially the m6 with the 90mm

I really liked T1, but they're...very specific. The M4 with the derp and golden ammo is however a bit overpowered at the moment, so u can go that route while you still can.

I believe that the t1 is actually a nice tank well armrored in the front espcially in the turret. Hence, try to angle it and more importently try to position yourself in sloped areas where the turret is the only part visible, note that your only weakspot is the mg patch in the front section of the upper front glacis which can be hidden quite easily. try to be the spear head of the attack sniping with the t1 isnt sufficient due to low view range,big size and "meh" accurate gun.

Thanks guys! talked to more ppl and I will go for the T1, even if the M4 is OP at the moment.

T1 is a very under rated tank. when elite it is quite nimble  for a heavy and is a very good earner.

its main draw back is its a big target and its sides are as big as a barn door and offer as much protection.

However it's tall size makes it able to shoot from places most other tanks cant.
If you get to know it it will reward you well.

M6 is just a bigger more armoured T1

Go to M4A3E2, then the T29, which are through M4 Sherman. That line is less painful than T1-M6 line, i think

I don't know what is you'r playstyle, how good you'r with mediums and heavies, but I recomend you to start first the heavy tank.
The T1 and M6 were quiet good for their tiers , nice armor and good fast gun.


Good luck on battlefield, Tf999  :Smile_Default:

T1 is a nice tank and was my first heavy and my first tier 5.
it wasn't a hard grind at all.
then the M6 is pretty nice with the 90 mm gun.
T29 is a beast as well.
Then we get to the T32.
its a T29 with worse MM, more HP and a better turret.

if I was in your situation I would wait until I unlocked the KV1S and continue on from that.
Hope all this helps.

Imo go M4 , not because of gold ammo or anything , but because it gives options , and options are always nice :3 . You can get Jumbo sherman , and from there you can choose to go to T20 or T29 first

T1ht or M4 Sherman, man that aint that difficult!
TAKE BOTH LINES! Im not kidding, tier 5 and up are great tanks.

T1ht and M6 are awesome if you know how to use them. they have very poor side armor, alot of people still angle way too much.

I really dont like the TD style of the M3 enough to get 14055 XP again on it :P

No, there is a time limit because my life involves other things besides digital tanks.
