Just here to poke fun at the losers who use the T18 for SkiLLz because its being replaced and made into an SPG :D even better for the losers who also hate arty. Seriously though using the T18 for stats is shameful. Use an E50 if you want to look like and become a pro, you won't learn anything by playing against teams that are just bots and new players. So shameful.

 

But anyway = IT'S GETTING REPLACED WHOOPEE ! ! ! = :great:

Calm down there.   The T18 was terrible for your stats but was a nice tank to play back in the day when I was just learning my way.  

 

I'm happy to see it as an arty, I guess there will be a free skill reset on the crew so that can get BiA.   Now I wonder if they are going to change the T57 SPG to a TD as well and then I guess there is a new Tier 2 US SPG.   

 

Lots of new low tier US tenks to play, looking forward to it!

What is the actual tier 2 replacement? Those are both t3 vehicles.

We all knew the T18 and T57 had reverse roles in WOT. And that WG wanted to change em around. I see they found a way. By bumping em up a tier. Though the T18 even as a tier 3 arty with that armor and mobility will be trollish still in the right hands. Most will still play it as a TD i suspect.

 

But the question still remains. Will these be at tier III with the current tier III's. Or will the T82 and M7 get removed or will they go down a tier? If they will be tier III along side the current tier III's. Then the question is. What do we get at tier II instead then?

It won't be so succesful as a TD IMO..
-110 HP at Tier 3,

-quite tallish
-decent armor (but not as good as at Tier 2)
-arty dispersion values (most likely terrible)
-ROF divided by two (in exchange of indirect fire)
Also, it will be fast, but with horrible terrain resistance and track traverse, and a 6 km/h reverse speed.


You'll be able to wreck some Tier 2 or place 1 shot before to die, but nothing much more.


I hope it won't be a Tier 3 Bishop.. Exchanging OP TD for OP arty isn't the solution. :/

 

But the question still remains. Will these be at tier III with the current tier III's. Or will the T82 and M7 get removed or will they go down a tier?

 

=> Maybe they will just stay as a parallel line like for the German arties..

 

If they will be tier III along side the current tier III's. Then the question is. What do we get at tier II instead then?

 

M3 HMC, maybe? I read on FTR devs thought to this one as a replacement.

I doubt that the m7 will be removed considering it was a well used arty in ww2

That's what I'm afraid of. Even though it's sorta worse in some areas vs now and have low HP for a tier III arty, that can be penned and can be killed by one shot by most tier III TD's. Most tier II and most stock tanks it faces, won't stand a chance even vs 50mm with most auto cannons etc, as even the PZ II with AP is screwed then as not all have 50+ pen until they get the top gun on their tier III. And some not even then. Even though the plate below the structure is 25mm effective armor is it? Not all at tier III knows that and will more or less go for the structure. And sure the ROF is way slower. But even so. Considering how most fail attacking a Bishop due to the turret armor at tier 5. The same armor is gonna work wonders at tier III.

I doubt that to. But then will it still be a tier III along side the T18, like the Wespe and Bishop in the German tech tree?. Or will it go down to tier II, but that makes less sense tbh.

It should 've been done 2 years ago... The nerfs had crippled its OPness though. Personally I never took the time to pad in it.

When I decided to train a new crew it was already harder to play. I don't mind... it was a bit ridiculous at low tiers. Like a certain

T10 TD we all know of is at high tiers... *cough cough

Look like pro yes... become a pro, no... Easy mode at Tier9? Play something harder to become a pro.

Well, it's different in 10.0- both the T82 and T18 have become arty and the T18 have been replaced with a T2 light with a howitzer- but it keeps the 72.2kph top speed. Oh, and the T57 arty has been replaced as well :(

It's been a long time since I took a Tier 2 tank out of the garage but I did take a lot of pleasure in hosing down the T18s that infest those games.  My weapons of choice were the Pz II, Cruiser III and T-60, all of which made short work of the stupid things.
