Hey guys,


I saw many guys complaining about the swedish heavy line from t7 upwards...


So I wanted to ask you: Do you think playing the line is worth at all ? I'm thinking about  starting the grind.

not unless you want every tank researched.


The tier 6 and 7 Meds are a tad special, but i found both rather compfortable to play.


Emil 1 is absymal  when stock, and even fully kitted out suffering from being plain useless. As toptier it doesn't have the means to push (as showing the hull/side lets any tier 6 beat you), as bottom tier your gun just lacks both pen AND gunhandling to face heavys or armoured meds effectively.


Emil 2 and Kranvagen i only tried on the Testserver but the likewise suffer from being 1-trick ponys: if they can stay hulldown AND don't get HEed they are decent....  but frankly: a super-conqueror has an even better turret (+ better hull) and brings a great gun with decent DPM instead of the near-useless auto-loader swedisch ones get.

Nowadays, the Swedish tech tree, both the tier 10, are a joke. I don't think any other newly introduced line got almost obsolete so fast as the Swedes. Swedish heavies are very bad so steer clear and save your time/money grinding something viable. Funny thing as i remember the highlight of the Swedish heavy line was the tier 6 medium! :)

Emil I was ok in FL battles, it has mobility and ok burst, but you sure cant 1v1 a defender.


Emil II is very hard to play even top tiers.


I am about to unlock the Kranvagn but I don t think I will buy it.

I will downgrade the girls on the tiers VII which was fun.

The Emil II is the highlight of the heavies, it's a great tank.
I would imagen it's a tank you either like or hate, i've fallen in love with it and have managed a respectable 70% winration over 33 games so far.
The gun handling on the Emil I made me wanna throw up, but it can do some serious work.
If you want a autoloading heavy then the Emil II would be worth the grind.
