I'm saving up free xp enmasse for the T28 Prot.

I guess having the 105 mm gun is bearable, but the stock gun? lol

T25/2 stock grind bad? 


You will have wet dreams of that grind after you try some stock tier 9 medium tank grinds like patton/PTA.

Saying that brings back memories of my Patton grind...



I think I might have to revisit my shrink now.



Seriously though, you can make your life easier by playing the T25 AT before the T28 Prot, to give you the 105mm gun.

I liked the T25/2 much better than the pre-nerf hellcat.  You have to flex with it a lot and play it like a medium a lot.  Also you need to use premium shells.  To me it was more fun than the hellcat was.

I found the t25/2 to be quite nice with camo/binos on certain maps.

I wasn't a very good player at the time when I played the T25/2 and found it quite painful. The T28 Prototype at least had armour and I grinded both the T28 and T30 from it. It was not fun, but a lot more fun than the T28. T95 is not bad either as it was elite from the start, having gone through the T30 first. The T95 has more bounces than the T28, but it's boring to play. You can't influence the outcome of a battle in it. There have been battles where I have been chasing the action, only to have died as last one, not being able to shoot a single round. I'm halfway through the grind and limit myself to doing daily doubles.


Nowadays I'd probably do a better job with the T-25/2. Too bad many of the bushes are gone, but having a good crew helps.

fck this tank and MM


It's not the tanks fault if you have bad luck. Also it seems like you platooned which prevented you from having pref mm in your first 3-10 games as you get with every new tank to help you through the stock grind.

T28 Prot was much much worse than the T-25/2


I would not say "much much worse", the prot is still a decent TD ... it has quite the DPM and a very bouncy front. Problem is ... slow + open top = XP piniata for arty... and the non 360° turret is a big joke too.


Ok, i sucked with that tank and ended up skipping the end to get the T30. Still, not the worse grind i did

well i entirly skipped the t28proto because i refuse to play such a bad tanku.


well this also stopps me from ever getting the E3... there are just 2 turd tanks in the way i will not ever play. and since i dont convert free exp any more i actually want to save free exp for modules which are part of mor fun tanks.


Actually you get the E4 from the T28proto. the E3 is from the T28. I know because i just got it :)

I gave up on this tank.

I retried it a while ago, since I wanted to get a TD with turret so I could actually have fun while trying to do missions for T55A and 260, but I just gave up on the whole idea.

Maybe if I can skip to the T-30.


T30 is somewhat tough to use, but it can be good. Totally different animal than any previous US TD though. Think of a T29 with a bigger gun (that will still bounce, so you can't only use AP) and way slower turret, and you got it.

I always played my T25/2 like I play the T20. The only differences are your not as fast, lower hp and your turret traverse sucks. However you have a better gun, slightly better camo and a mantlet that actually bounces.

What?!? Just What?

Check the title of the topic, it's about stock grinds. And stock T32 is horrible. Has to pen tier 10s with the gun M6 uses, turns like a Maus, turret is crap, viewrange is crap, mobility is crap, you basically cannot use your tank in any way. Best way is to try to sidescrape and get penned in the turret, or just trade shots.

And the E1 has 171 pen. As a T9 med. Huge, no camo, lowish top speed med. So far they are the worst grinds.

So yeah, "what?"

Well i cant agree more with you.


Good that im done with this tree now sitting on my T110E4, which was awesome before the TD nerf and before all the other turreted TDs were added.

T25/2 is just so bad with the worst Penetration (at first i thought it was a joke, sadly not), then the non existant armor, even the turret is paper.

If you manage to penetrate you get 240 average which is just crap. The DPM would be ok if you could use it.

The mobility is QUITE ok but just outrunned with all the new TD lines that are constantly added.


All in all it was my first Tier 7 back then and i hated it no matter how hard i tried i never understood how to compete in a Tier 9 Match which can happen sadly.

On the other hand i have to admit i got my record for the highest XP in one Match with this piece of crap, dont ask me how....


The T28 Prototype is a beast with the Top Gun altough it cant make up for the pure devastation the T25/2 was for me and my love for the game

T28 Prototype is very bad. T28 is very much better. A lower profile, improved camo, with the same gun, better mobility.

before few days i reasrched T25/2 and putted him in garage


and i must say i am disappointed with that tank and his MM


i have 33 battels with him

and i must say 20 battels was with T9,10 battels with T8 and max 3 battels i was top tier


today every battle with him T9 most or T8


dont know what to say

for me this is my worst grind

tank have 170mm pen with best gun

have no armor,not so fast,,poor turret traverse,worst gun on his tier 

only good thing on this tank is gold penetration 258mm


so for me this will be long and painful grind 

what was your hardest grind in this game and why?


Play it like a medium, it then plays very similarly to a T20, not quite as fast with a slower turret but more pen and DPM, little less HP but you have a troll gun mantlet and that roof that is a no damage hit, so hull down support medium.


Just tier 7s are rubbish in tier 9, but that's like all tank bottom tier.

I loved that grind. Aced it in 3rd battle full stock. Finished grinding it after 159 games with 60% WR. It's a hull down slow med with nice camo. Compared to what follows, it's an amazing tank to play.

I ground pta from stock, wasn't that bad, 9cm kanone has pretty ok pen.


Wz-120 however, that's gonna be sweet pain to grind, especially without heavy line.

Well I'm grinding it, and it's nowhere near as bad as T32/T54E1. One is slow as [edited]with autopen turret and M6's gun, the other has 171 pen at tier 9.
Hang on OP.


I'd hazard a guess that you waste all the Free XP you earn researching the tank, instead of using it to research modules so you can avoid playing a stock tank.


I'd be willing to bet the OP does the same thing, I can't think of a single "Stock" tank that I ever played which was better than a pile of garbage, if I can't upgrade a tank enough to make it playable I won't get it until I can. It's so much easier to play a fully researched T8 against T9's than it is to play a stock T9.
