Can someone tell me which tanks of these 2 lines are worth getting? Which are real keepers and favourites? I just need to know I'm not wasting my time grinding these out as judging from the tier 7 it aint gonna be fun....

 

 

Edit: sorry title should say 8-10. Are any of the tier 8s good as well?

if you don't like the m4 45, just stop. the others play the same, and all have butter for hull armour, and are still the large targets they were in the lower tiers...

 

you can just about get away with using the 51 and 54 as "T29" style hulldown, but your hull roof is weak and you face far more "derp" guns, which obviously don't like your hull roof...

 

 

what did you expect them to be?

they're all big, slow accelerating and paper armour if that's what your asking.... the 50 line does have auto's, but long reloads and the 50 120 is supposedly terrible (yet to play it) 

 

the T9 M4 51 has a strong turret, yes, but hull roof is weak, and you face Types and E100's.. as well as arty, which all do high damage to your paper hull....

 

try them out, but the armoured line plays the same, and the 50 100 onwards line trades the armour for auto's with long reloads

 

 

given that, which would you prefer? im not you, so I cant tell your playstyle, or what you like/dislike.. 

 

try them out on the CT? maybe that will shed some light on it?

I still have AMX 50 100. Haven't played team battles for some time so i don't know if it's still good for that. But still pretty good for randoms.

50 100 and AMX M4 51 are my keepers, for different reasons.

as a hint play them on the testserver and see for yourself, and it doesent matter if you are gold spammed there as you will be goldspammed on live aswell.

can only comment on the 50-100. Basically boils down to whether you like to play the auto-loader mediums, as basically that is what you are getting.

 

mobile, but no armour. lots of sniping. moving, popping out, shoot, hide reload.

 

Basically think BAT TAP but larger, but at tier 8 not tier 9.

 

I think 50-100 would be great if the MM wasn't continually putting you in tier 10.

 

The moment you hit a tier 8 3-5-7 as top tier, you should basically ace the tank.

 

If you've not played a medium auto-loader, then I would advise to stay away.

AMX M4 51 is really good, AMX 50B also if you are accustomed to autoloader playstyle.

IMO none at the moment. 

 

M4 51 is probably the best, but I found that it only really works in top tier games (where it is super powerful), if there are lots of tier 10s then your armour just doesn't work, people just pop HEAT right through the turret.

 

The tier 10 is just a minor upgrade on the tier 9 (has the same turret and will face more premium rounds) and these tanks would have a stand out role if their 'big guns' had decent premium rounds. A mobile, tier 10 heavy with 560 alpha and decent gun handling for that alpha would be unique and you'd accept the so/so armour, but 280 AP pen is not going to cut it against the Type 5s, Maus, Bobjects, etc.I mean we are about to have the 277 which comes with 265 AP standard pen. (and the 120mm has 264 standard pen)

 

So you are left using the 120mm, and really the two Conquerors and the E5 are better 120mm armed heavies IMO. 

 

50b is a good tank, but just not for the current meta. You are better off with a T57, or one of the medium autoloaders.

All autoloaders are worth playing, but probably only 50b is worth keeping, although i recently rebought 50 120, i must say that after gun depression an elevation angle buff its not a bad tank at all. Btw talking about hull armor, 50b has one of the strongest frontal hull armor  on any heavy in game, but that doesnt matter, cause everyone shoots the turret
