If you are thinking about grinding up to the tier 8 I recommend the German line, if you are looking for tier 6-7 I recommend Russian or American, Russian is easier to grind though.

I personally like the german arty line best overall. Especially if you decide to grind from the tier 2 arty and not skip in halfway from mediums/heavies.

Alternatively the US line is also pretty decent all round.

Wouldn't really recommend grinding the russian line from tier 2 (based on beta experience). I know others swear by the su-26 and I've certainly been pummelled by it but I could never get it to work well for me...

At lower tiers, germans get better firepower while US get pinpoint accuracy and wider firing angles (can't say for russians since I gave up after su-26). At higher tiers guns appear somewhat similar judging by stats alone.

(Currently, russians get their best gun one tier earlier at tier 6, while germans have the highest potential damage at tier 7. Can't say how things will change once tier 8 arty come out though...)

US Tier 3-6 artilleries are a joke
THe M40/43 was very good. And it was worthy earning after a terrible grind, but its getting nerfed. While the other US arties remain unchanged and underpowerd


So yes. German artillery all the way

don't give people such advices for the American artillery is absolute crap 'til T7. either go Russian (S-51 ftw) or German - but don't touch the American tree. after the M40/43 nerf (next patch) it's not worth it anymore.

edit: ah, you wrote "no premium". then the American tree is even more of a no-go because the credit-income of the M12 is bugged for more than half a year now and it's not going to be fixed in the next patch (god knows why...but we need 10 more language packs, oh yeah..that's important...). you hardly make any money with it WITH premium. without you'll probably lose money all the time.

The S51 is overarly the best arty in the game for his tier and below. OF course, only when it has the apocalipse 203mm gun

The stock gun is better then the M12 his TOP gun


The GW Panther is very good in more capable hands, but overall, yes the S51 is better.

T3=Wespe
T4=Grille
T5=Hummel
T6=S51
T7=WAS m40/43 but with its nerfs, i'de say GW tiger no doubt. It has better accuracy then  mentioned and you have much bigger splash and 150 more damage

Greetings!

I only have experienced us arty line, so i wouldn't compare to any other. The main thing is: playing that way was pure pleasure from the beginning. Today i'm running an M41 and i love it. Others can have better values, but as I see other/rival SPGs performance compared to mine/yet others, I don't see that much difference. Of course, i just play, keep an eye on all the events and look at the summary after the final whistle. I'm not a stat-freak, nor a pro - probably never will be.

Style, mood, situation, team coherence - changing from battle to battle, from minute to minute - brings some other coefficients in the formulae. So, don't be afraid to choose other than everyone says it's the one and only choice. I might say: you can even choose based on which SPG you find most sexy :)

And, of course, US has the most sexy devices designed to deal damage from far away.

new Russian Tier 8 BY FAR i think it will be horrible in high tier battles to play against this thing and that it will dominate the whole battlefield its worse than any tier 10 tank can be.
yeah it has a smaller gun than the other arties BUT:
it can shoot and aim faster, has the highest ACCURACY ! 0,37! which is almost like a US 105mm TANKGUN!
highest Damage per Minute, is faster and more nimble as the other arties, the ONLY thing it lacks is damage per shot but the damage it can put out at maximum is still enough to instantly kill all tier 9 vehicles in 1 shot

As I read last "self sufficient" arty tier (without premium) is T7.
If I am looking for best T7 arty then - which tree should I go for? :)

SU-26 is just great. Imo it is much more fun than Wespe. The Hummel isn't any good really with bad shooting angles, low trajectory and slow aiming time. When you track a target and your chassie move, your target reticle is as large as your screen and it aims so slow. What is good with the Hummel is it's mobility. I have limited experience of the S-51 but It is really slow and sluggish.

without a doubt the little Su-26 is the most fun.

Grille is OK but a really narrow aim area,
Hummel once you get the crew up is OK.  but it is a long grind and for that reason I would say stay away from it.

Just got the GW Panther this morning and so far really like it.  No way I would go back to the Hummel,  but sell the Su-26? nope. made that mistake once...

GW Panther is great, thanks to its accurate, fast firing gun, mobility and the semi-turret. Preferred it to S-51, big gun isn't everything.

GW Tiger isn't as good as I thought it would be. Tried Object 212 and had much better results with it.
