Hey! by 1 August my World of Tanks garage WILL look like this:

- IS tank,,,,,,, IS-6,,,, SU-122-44,,,,,, SU-100y,,,,,, AMX ELC,,,, <------ EDIT: SU-100y will no longer be an option as it is tier 6, even though it is a great T6 TD, the su122-44 is much more magical :D.

So, what i want to know is.. what next?

Don't call me a noob and say i need more battles, because this is my 2nd WoT account, only recently i returned to WoT after a 1 year break from it.

When i have those 5 tanks in my garage, i am pretty sure that i will have the best tier 7-8 heavy tank, the best Tank destroyer tier 6-7, and probably the best light tank + most fun one in the game, even though it is only tier 5, it seems so much fun.

So i must probably say which sort of tanks i am interested in.. well Since i have the IS line, which has from tier 5-8 all the best heavy tanks, and i don't want tier 9-10 tanks as this will take too long. So i don't need more heavy tanks! (and DEFINITELY NOT SPG's, as i find them extremely boring to play with!

Tank Destroyer wise though as a tier 6 and 7 my two premium ones will probably be the best.. maybe the SU 152 can rival my su 122-44 but i doubt it would be worth getting unless i really have nothing better to go at. So im open to ideas from tier 5 tank destroyers, and tier 8 tank destroyers, nothing below 5 and nothing above 8!

Light Tanks.. i will have the AMX ELC tier 5 tank, which seems so much fun, so i dont need another tier 1-5 light tank, what about tier 6-8 light tanks? when i get the tier 5 light tank should i grind all the way to it's tier 7-8 partner? :D

Medium Tanks.. i dont have any of them, the Cromwell and Comet, tier 6-7, honestly seems the best for me, and i dont need tier 1-5 medium tanks, so what about any other great tier 6-8 mediums can i go for?

NOTE: You can also recommend any other very fun premium vehicles between Tier 6-8 (except for those that i already mentioned)!

Thanks for the help! :D

S35 CA is also a great addition, and yes Cromwell is a excellent machine with lots of carry potential. the tier 6 CZ med also has good potential but i find it less comfortable due to the slow hull traverse but that autoloader stings. 

 

i have no experience with the T-34-85 but general opinion seems to be its on par with cromwell, then again its russian so you ussualy cant go wrong with those.

the S35 CA looks okay-ish, but it's armor seems pretty bad, but i guess most tier 5 TD's armor is bad though! :D 

As for the skoda t25, the Cromwell outperforms it pretty good! so i think for a medium tier 6-7 i would be sorted with the cromwell-comet :) my best friend in wot had the t-34-85, he said that it isn't bad, but also isn't good.. do u have any ideas of a Tier 8 fun/good Light tank, Tank Destroyer or Medium tank? i don't know any of them so good tbh. Thx for the reply btw! :D

If you want medium tanks that I'd suggest you to have a look at the Japanese mediums.

whatever line you take - hopefully not the red one.

 

ELC is unique.

I'd say - how about the germans or murican heavies?

StuG III for a tier 5 TD. For tier 8, ISU-152.

You should also try out the Firefly as it has a 17-pounder at tier 6 which is great.

I have the BEST heavies in the game already :D so heavies aren't really an option.. for now atleast :D

There's literally only 1 thing stopping me from going towards the ISU-152 :(

I will have the premium TIer 7 SU122-44, i prefer this tank over the SU 152 at tier 7, but at tier 8 i really want the ISU 152, dunno if the ISU 152 is worth getting if i have the best tier 7 TD? i think it might be worth it because then i have the best tier 7 and best tier 8 TD in the game :D

and btw, as it stands my plan is to get the tier 7 Comet, as i've seen it quite a few times in matches and it looks very decent. 

and since i am playing with my tier 7-8 tanks in wot lately, i have a lot more fun, so im not sure if any tier 1-6 tanks are even worth it at this stage because Tier 7-8 can keep me busy for hours and hours, because it is so much fun! :) The firefly doesn't seem to interest me that much tbh ^^ 

So as it stands the only tanks i will grind towards is the Comet and ISU-152 at this stage! ( and of course the amx elc.. what a tank xD!!)

Hey guys I haven't played in 2 years (!) and today I'm coming back. That is, if the download speed of this game ever exceeds 450kb/s (apparently WoT doesn't give a crapthat I have a 100mb/s internet). 

I've so far only got the AMX-50B. Is it still any good? Was it nerfed/buffed? How does it compare now to other tier 10 heavies?

Ignore what team chat said, 99% of it is drivel anyway. The amount of sh!t I got for playing the Caernarvon the right way was tedious to say the least....

Play like a TD, AFAIK the only difference it has to the Achilles is slightly lower accuracy and RoF for more HP and faster turret traverse

One month? So its the 4rth time you've been banned? I highly doubt misspelling words is enough to get you that far down the line in only 1.3K battles
