Even though I am improving my gameplay (near 1700 wn8 this month), I am tired of high tiers (especially tier 8) ( enjoying my 9s) and I am looking for a new line to grind from quite low tiers ( looking at 4-8). Since the lt changes and new t10 chinese heavy, I am looking to grind chinese heavies and lights or french lts from 12t (I have researched it after playing elc). Are any lines worth grinding for fun? Please suggest having looked at my tanks I have. btw I play all classes ( I enjoy diversity) Thanks

It is a game. There are some that are Chinese and French tanks that MAY be fun for you to grind. You won't know until you try

Back in the day the french lights were tons of fun - the grind to the old tier x BatChat was my quickest and funnest. Guess they wont have changed that much

well its hard to tell what other may or may not find fun to play

 

for the chineses i like the is2 the 110 not so much  for the wz111-4 i got still the small gun so it might be better to not judge it yet

 

as for the french i better keep quiet since meds/lights arent my  strong point

French heavies starting from completed tier 8 and up are fun. High risk, high reward tanks. You can easily end up in lots of tiny boxes, but the joy of unloading magazine... :hiding:

Chinese lines just got a buff (gun depression from 3.5 to 5 for medium 121 and 113 on sides from 5 to 7 and new heavy). But those 2 heavies are something between heavy and med. Cant really speak about them. And havnt tested 121 with new gun depression yet, should be good now, duno.

What one player enjoys may be completely different for another player. FWIW, I'd say they are worth grinding but there are certain points where it'll be a hell of a grind to get through ... which goes for just about every line in the game.

Well LT gameplay has heavily shifted since tier X LT intro. For french LTs they got clip reduced while gaining mobility. If you can invest into good camo crew, french LTs are quite fun. The biggest issue was GH, but now you can put vstabs. As well bat 12t opens 3x tier9, all of them good.

Thanks, but I have terrible crew, and would have to grind missions (t55 a one) to get good crews for something like that

I would go for the 113 and the WZ-111 5A. Don't go for the lights (or stop at tier 9).

high tier french heavies and check mediums starting from tier 9 are worth it. SO worth it. As long as you dont expect super high winrates unless yore brain is next level or something of that sort. They are fragile, easy to spot (french tier 10 does make some miracle bounces and i remember enemy grill managed to bounce on my tvp...).

I was very late to the Chinese light line (4 months ago or so) because initially I didn't see the point. Crappy inaccurate guns with "long" aimtime.

 

And then I played the WZ-131 and WZ-132 and holy cow are these things good at firing in the move. Sure the guns aim long while standing still but driving and snapshotting works like a charm. I was honestly *VERY* surprised to find these things so good on the move.

 

Also, their camo is really good.

 

I must say, definitely worth a try.

 

====

 

Chinese heavies:

IS-2 is crap.

110 is powercreeped.

WZ-111 1-4 is a lot of fun once fully updgraded.

 

====

Chinese mediums:

T-34-1 is the only good one due to its insane turret armour, rest is crap.

 

Cobra 6

What do you think about 121 after its gun depression buff to 5 degrees?

In short:

Yes. Very.

If you got a commander with 6th sense.

Seriously? I thought I read the lt t10 was one of the best, btw I love the lt line as t62 and t64 are great crew trainers - and tier 6-8 are loads of fun ( but the 132 can no longer snipe for sh....)
