I finally saved up 6 million credits and I've been wanting to add a medium tank to my tier X hanger. There has been some changes in tanks with the new updates and I'm trying to decide on a medium for ranked battles .At the moment I have a WZ-121 and a STB-1 unlocked and I'm very close to unlocking the T-62, Obj-140 and TVP.


 

I would like to hear from people that own all or at least a few of these vehicles, know the differences, strengths and weaknesses and that can make some recommendations on what tank better suits ranked battles in the current Meta?


 

 

Appreciate your feedback.

Object 907 is the best tank for this mode.

During gamescom you could have bought any tier 10 with a 15% discount.

I'd say the 140.

 

Or if you have one, the stupidly OP but well deserved 907.

Obj907. If you don't have that then Obj140 or TVP.

Perhaps but really a moot point as I don't' have this tank and won't be getting it any time soon.

140 hands down.

 

EDIT: Forgot to mention that you should avoid ranked games in 1st place.

Based on the maps list I would not recommend a medium. They are basically city maps or small maps like Mines.

Please take a look at my Tier X's what would you suggest I take?

 

I currently have IS7, T57 Heavy, T110e5, Grille, T92, and a Batchat.

FYI: These are OP's tanks.
MTs: Bat Chatillon 25 t 
TDs: Waffenträger auf E 100 G121 Grille 15 L63 
SPGs: T92 
HTs: T110E5 T57 Heavy IS-7 

 

Given the options, I'd say play arty and do something else while playing. It's ranked, darnit!

They might be OP to a skilled player, I'm far from that lol.

IS-7 should be ok. E5 could work, but everybody can pen your cuppola and if you have bad luck on a city map you can't even go hull-down. T57 heavy can work as well if you use your team as a meat shield and get a few clips off. You probably won't make it to the top3 that often but top10 quite reliable.

 

As for meds, you have the batchat which can work as a pseudo scout, combined with dmg it's quite good xp earner. TVP i wouldn't recommend, pen is just to unreliable, and will cost you mountains of credits. For a new med the obj 140 is perhaps the safest choice.

'Original Poster'. ;)

 

 

The suggestion to play arty was mostly a joke, but if it's arguably the easiest way to go up in rank. Last time it was a matter of quantity rather than quality; playing arty is cheap and you can eat dinner at the same time. No risk involved, and you can yell at your team in chat.

Maps will favor heavies, go with IS7, it can't be a bad choice after recent buffs.

 

Edit: good that you saved some credits, you will need them to cover for the inevitable gold spam ;)

Obj-140 and T-62A. Good armor, fast, small and got the highest pen value of this sample.

With the map changes, you better get a Type 5 or a Maus...

T110E5 has the most flexibility. Use that.

Get a Maus or a 113/WZ.

But better to not play ranked at all.
Map pool sucks.
