Hello, since a slot will be opening up in my garage soon I was wondering wich of the two I should pick. (Yes I know I am relatively new but oh well) and why. These are currently the only two lines that I really wanna grind besides what I am currently grinding and I am kinda at an impass. Please give me some advice as to which to pick.

Its general opinion that the Grille 15 needs buffing so be wary of that. You might be able to play them both on the test server first and see which suits more.

Is the lack of slots the reason you have to pick? It's basically camp-a-bush for both lines - but one line has a turret. Turret is good. 268 is not a great T10 even post-buff, and even the 704 is no brawler (though the combination of decent HP, some armor and big gun is nothing to scoff at).

On a side note, I have played a fair bit with TDs and I am personally fed up with them now. They have little carry potential and are very reliant on a team with intellegance. The amout of times I pick a good spot to farm damage, wait for the enemy and instead of my own team mates using brains and letting enemy peak and making use of TD support, they are desperate for the damage themsevles, peak and die. No more spots, GG. Its very passive and team reliant.

 

Also battles seem to be often ending very quickly, which in my opinion does not lend itself to a good TD game. 15 - 1 so often and its boring either way. I think its partly because the current meta is very arcade like with early intense agression, rather than a more realistic careful patience.

 

I now much much much prefer mediums as they are engaging and you have a much higher chance to determine the outcome of the battle. At least if its a steam roll you have mobility and a turret to get into the action early. That is just my opinion though. If you enjoy TDs, then fair play to you friend :)

Advice in terms of what? What characteristics do you prefer when it comes to TDs? Do you just want to rush up the tiers or do you want to properly play the tanks on your way up?

I'd try the Russian DPM TD line if you want. It's going to change and it'll get a retarded OP tier X with impenetrable armor.

@OP...he means obj263 with higher DPM in contrast to obj268 with higher alpha.

The german line is more stealthy, passive gameplay.

The SU line can be used more actively. Long range sniping with the russians is basically praying to RNG gods. I like just to join heavies and/or mediums with the SU's, probably not the best way to do well, but imo the most fun.

he didnt really makeclear with russian d hes asking about

 

263 line is rather bad with changed  for the 263 upcoming

on the other hand 268was nerfed so bad its better to not touch it at all  thought you might have fun with isu152 and obj 704

 

for the germans the sturer emil might be a hard test for your patience

on the other hand nearshorn got the rather nice tiger gun on a t6 tank  and the borsig might be the best stocktank in the game (if you dont want to go with the 15cm gun )

Wt auf pz4 is rather ok  but you might get some gun depression issues , grille15 was nerf rather bad not really fun

so all of these lines might be ok/great up to T8/9  but i wouldnt bother to buy their T10 tank

yeah, it is mainly for the low to midtiers as I don't expect to go above tier VIII for a long time. So I don't really care right now wich tier X is better as I won't be playing it for atleast 2-3 years to come.

indeed, that is one of the most ridiculous planned changes I have ever seen. I mean I played the 263 on CT and I liked it because it was special, instead of your (sadly enough) standard 750 derp cannon it was a tank that was more about DPM then raw alpha wich made it feel very special. Seriously who at WG HQ thought, lets take one of the few TD lines that don't end in a 750 derp and just make it more similar to the rest.
