What do you consider 'low-tier'?


I don't enjoy low-tier gameplay that much. It's kind of relaxing to take the Panzer 1C without trying too hard to win. Actually trying feels like either no challenge at all or being clubbed by a "wannabe" in his T67 or a "tank collector" in his Pz. B2.

T6 is about how low I can tolerate nowadays. Mostly because I have almost no lines to grind up to, and including, T7, and few high-tier tanks that I really want anyway. I'll play happily play T6 and T7 if someone asks me to, but mostly premium tanks to earn some credits. Type 64 and Type 62 are go-to tanks. IS is pretty fun too.


(No offense intended if you're a dirty zounderkite sealclubber who's seriously trying to convince me that e.g. T67 'takes skill to play' and that purple stats in T67 is supposed to be impressive. It's not.)

Often take SU85b out at T4, in fact must be OCD as it's the first tank I take out every session.

It's got no armour to speak of, terrible gun elevation/depression but the gun makes up for any shortcomings. Often in a T6 battle where it can deal damage to most tanks it meets.

I loathe low tiers. The only tank I kind of enjoy playing sometimes is the Mathilda.

I regularly run through my American td's and yes the T40 is one of the best tanks in the game imo. But recently I've been grinding up a crew for my Conway and been playing the tier IV Alecto which is massive fun. My stats actually went down because of the raw crew, but still I ended up 18th in the new vehicle ratings, great fun.

AMX 40 (Tier 4) 

Still my most played tank, it has nice 'bouncy' armour and is good looking. But hard to play - you are too slow to react when things go down on the other side of the map and the gun is also quite weak against Tier 5 and 6. 

Unfortunately I have dismissed all my french crew members some months ago (bad choice, I know meanwhile), so I will not play the AMX 40 anymore. Starting with a new 75% crew (without BiA, Camo or Repair) may be too frustrating for me. ;)


edit: bought the Cruiser II (Tier 3) last week. I wanted to try lowtiers again as i had good memories of it's derp gun. But all those crap Pz.1C are hard to deal with. Needs some time getting used to all those low tier-machineguns again, I think ...

Mainly still working on my US tech tree, but I do my daily doubles on the T3 M3 Stuart & Locust. Generally first tanks I roll our with first. I also take some sadistic pleasure on driving around in the T4 M5 Stuart. Since I am still learning a lot, I play my T7-T8 only daily doubles for slow grind up the tiers and spend my majority in T5-6. Either zipping around in my LTs or training crews in my Thunderbolt / Fury. And since the AMX 13 105 line will be TotT next month, I started grinding that line already and am enjoying the AMX40. As DraconariusAT stated, it is slow AF, so frustrating to arrive at the party late (either team has rolled up that flank, or team has been rolled up and I am 1 vs x, or I dont meet any enemy at all in a rolfstomp win).

On low tiers "tier 4 and lower" I have 27 tanks..... 25 of them are premiums "mostly gift tanks". And I hardly play anyone of them now, besides when I train scout crews up etc. The only two normal tanks I have there is the pz 1c, and I don't even remember the last time I took that out. "still" only at 2 crew skills. And the Luchs, that I always take out when high tiers gets to silly. In fact I still miss the +4 MM days it had when it was moved up to tier 4. As I only had 100 games in it or so when it was a tier 3. It was fun then to, but not that fun. Bullying Tiger II's never got old. And that's when I played most of my games in it.

currently grinding T-34, Type T-34, Chaffee and M7.

after 81 battles, I got 69% winrate in the T-34, and people still tell me WR isn't rigged...

Chaffee and M7 though are really really bad


lI sometimes play low tiers with new players or when I need a change.

My "keepers" so far are

I got AMX 40, Pz 3 E and BT-7 arty to take a joyride every once and then. ATM I'm grinding DW2 to get the tigers, M3 to get T49 and AT-2 yrying to reach the deathstar before its retirement. I have also several tier 6, but those are midtier isn't it?

I usually warm up with Cruiser II, Luchs, Bt7 art or Ke-Ho as they're great fun and no stress of the outcome.

AT2 still got mine great TD especially when mid to top tier.

Good luck with the grind to the deathstar, I actually prefer the AT2 over the deathstar but will await it's replacement and see if it's any better.

Here's a quick rundown of deathstar.

Wait 25 seconds while it loads, wait 4 seconds while it fully aims, boom, misses, repeat. When it hits it can be devastating. Remember taking an IS7 with one shot, took 1850 hp off, set him on fire got the kill. Doesn't happen to often though.

I used to rather enjoy playing the Pz IC but the recent MM changes have made it far less enjoyable than it once was.

I have 2 tanks at T4 that I play regually because I find I have fun in them. SU85b, and the Matilda. BVVThese are the first ones i play in a session, my warm up tanks, and if things go badly later, i return to them, just to relax and feel happy again, and they become my cool down tanks.

I collect all regular tanks and I want to ace every single one of them. So I should play low tiers every so often, but I rarely, if ever, get around doing so. These days I use free xp to skip the lower tiers. The lowest tier I am grinding at the moment is the AMX 12t. Time to get the French arty. Don't really want to, but my OCD is playing up.
