I have just finished the leveling process for my S-51, which was a hard-hitter with AP before the patch. Now i think it is one of the worst SPGs on Tier 7, because it does no damage anymore, is not mobile and did not get a buff to its reload like the others.

 

So, any opinions which SPGs are the best after the patch? Perhaps it might be best to limit it to the ones which you can use for missions.

The big loosers are the ones with guns now too small to do much damage (high tier french for example - what's the point of firing 3 times to do a total of 450 damage).  The biggest winners are the ones that still have big guns but are now accurate to hit what they aim at consistently.  I think a lot of the german SPG's have seen a big improvement for example.

 

On top of that you still want a good gun arc and good mobility.  Hence I would say M53/55 is probably still the best arty.  You got mobility gun arc, gun depression, decent rof, pretty big damage/splash radius/stun.  It got a big accuracy buff so while it did loose a lot of damage it now hits significantly more often.  It's also probably a good all rounder for the missions.

 

*edit* obviously the best arty tier for tier was and still is the LefH, but I didn't mention that as it's a tier 5 premium.

I think the best SPG's are destroyed SPG's.

Not sure what your goal was to write in this topic...besides trolling...obviously. Go anywhere else and play there!

Only the SPGs with big guns are worth of something now.

The average damage over 1000hp and the splash radius over 10m.

The SPGs with these parameters are:

Tier VII: S-51, SU-14-1

Tier VIII: SU-14-2, M40/43, G. W. Tiger (P)

Tier IX: 212A, M53/55, G. W. Tiger, FV3805

Tier X: T92 HMC, G. W. E 100, Conqueror Gun Carriage

 

I prefer to play tier VIII and IX as they are cheaper to repair and can deal significant damage.

Playing tier X (even with premium account) means the loss of silver almost evrytime.

 

The French SPGs (especially tier IX and X) are unplayable now. So WG has slaughtered their own children.

The only exception is LefH as it was already mentioned by

DeathByDribbling.

As people know I love my Bishop but I hated the Leffy for it's accuarcy.

Now the Leffy is brilliant. Big improvement.

The Leffy is the same in 9.17.1.  It has the same accuracy now as before.  :)

Which actually feels like a nerf a bit with new MM, but not much changed either way.

So you picked the best ones for tier 7 - the soviets? Like seriously, soviets... 2 out of 3 worst SPGs of the tier overthrown at being bad only by Brit? Yeah...

 

I think that nowdays US line is probably the best overall, great on all tiers pretty much. Only things that are comparable are GW P at tier 7, 212 at tier 9 and Brits at tier 9 and X.

 

German line has serious mobility issues which is really killing the whole line, soviet 203mm on lower tiers are just terrible in every aspect, French might be good for some missions but low damage output is a real downer of the line.

If its got a wide arc of fire and a 155mm gun or bigger its good for most missions

 

Currently I am using the M44 GW Panther and the AMX 13F3 AM

 

If you want dead tanks the LeFH is still the one because its still got AP and HEAT no stun though.

 

I can see myself continuing to move up the American British and French lines but for me once you get to SPGs with 10 degree gun arcs you are just wasting your time.

When I first bought the Leffy it couldn't hit a cows backside with a laser guided banjo. Now it seems much better.

Bishop is the same with a slight decrease in reload time (0.2) of a second.
