Here are the tier 10 tanks I currently have. And I'm wondering which of those are consider competitive in this patch and why? I like fast mobile tank and autoloaders but are terrible at Batchat in the past, sitting at an abysmal 46% winrate after 178 battles considering my wn8. I can play 50B, I can play 30B but just happens to struggle with the Batchat to work. Seeing Batchat seem to be the more competitive tank among my collections, I genuinely wants to learn how to play this tank properly and maybe some of you could shed some light upon me. Also is there any new tank worth adding to my garage? Currently I'm bit scare to jump into tier 10 battles since I really haven't played in a long time. So will play some premium tanks to get the grip of the game and grind some silver, right now I have type59, t34, fcm 50t and super pershing, which one do you consider the best in the current meta? :unsure:

It's all about winning the brawls now and shift back to defend. Anything with usable armor is good. IS-7 should be pretty dank since buff.

Care to elaborate a little bit? What makes sniping from range lose its appeal in the current meta? I actually not very into brawling at corners... :(

Foch 50b: Seems to be pretty scary on paper, not sure about in practice. 

 

140+M48: Both have received turret buffs. Soviet tier 10 meds are due to receive more changes in general, so not sure how they'll pan out. I doubt Fatton will become a top tier machine, but should be pretty decent now. 

 

AMX 30B received turret armour and DOM in exchange for sniper gun stats. 

 

Most people I speak to seem to currently prefer the 50b over the T57. 

 

IS-7 just been buffed, looks pretty decent. IS-4 in contrast looking a little sad.

 

E3 unchanced, monster from the front if not that flexible. 

 

E5 also pretty much unchanged. 

 

Last patch tier 10 was dominated by the Maus and Type 5 Heavy after some buffs. Both have received some nerfs this patch. 

 

I wouldn't bother looking at purchasing a tier 8 prem for now. MM has been rather screwey for a patch or two, time will tell if it is any better with chances this patch. 

 

Edit: Yes, brawls have become more common. Map changes plus the recent domination (at least at tier 10) of the super heavies have kinda taken the game in that direction. Hard to snipe effectively when WG keep removing weak spots and buffing armour.

@lord_chipmonk

Do they nerfed the premium ammo on 50b? My memory kinda blurry but isn't it used to have crazy penetration value, one of the reason I like that tank in the past.

They closed down the fighting range and obstructed the vision from one side of map to another. I'd suggest you try IS-7 or E5 for a spin and see how it goes.

It's all about spamming premium ammo at horribly over buffed tanks and pay-to-win premium tanks. Enjoy.

Current meta (sorted by skill level):

 

- Bot tomato = press battle, go do laundry

- Dark red tomato = shoot at teammates then drive over field and die

- Normal tomato = kemp bush

- Green player = kemp bush moar

- WN8 padder = always stay on red line in light tank and snipe, never spot, kemp moar, complain on team for not spotting

Yeah, the prem ammo now has 300 pen. 

 

Some other things (off the top of my head):

 

- Light tanks now have more of a role than they previously did, being more capable of doing damage and hence carrying a game

- Arty is now far less of an RNG slot machine. Sure, they can still be annoying, but very unlikely to one shot you now or do that obscene amount of damage. 

- Speaking or arty, new stun mechanics. Basically they made it debuff support class. 

- New 30 vs 30 game mode at tier 10. 

- New currently; bonds, which allow you to buy more effective equipment. 

- Swedish tech tree.

 

I'd say give it a go. Jump into some games and see how you get on.
