I agree, it is too easy to be overconfident and get blown away. My missus has a tetriarch on her account and I steal it now and again for giggles, much better all round than the T-18. Might have to reprise myself on the cruiser tanks, as I don't much bother with below tier 4 myself unless I'm starting a new line.
I cannot recommend the Cruiser III enough, it has good mobility and gun depression and a very punchy gun. Incidentally doesn't have much trouble taking out T18s xD. The Cruiser IV is also an incredible machine... borderline overpowered actually... all im guna say is bofors + prem rounds + KV1 bum = funny as fk xD, also in a tier 3 game it is boss, yes even the Pz I C can be made to cower before the bofors.
