hi 

so which one do u think is better to grind first?

i was going for 268 and im still in tier 8 grinding the top gun but im not so sure anymore right now if im want to keep grinding this line. i hear players complain about 268 being broken but have not heard anything about badger or seeing too many of them in my battles why is that ?

im really tempted to go for the badger instead. that dpm is so awesome.

If you like crawling and brawling then go for the Badger, if you want to go charging in like a medium, and do some in your face damage, the go for the bobject, i was thinking of going for the bobject myself but I am slowly (no pun intended) coming round to wanting the badger.

Badger has 1 downside. Its mobility is really bad but it has great DPM and gun dep. V4 is an assault TD. Depends on your playstyle

I prefer V4

but take it easy. Cause badger has a grind that will make you wanna remove the game. The line is full of crap tanks from the beginning of T5 all the way to T9. But V4 is mostly fun tanks. all of them have very similar playstyles while there isn't much consistency in Badger line. play style varies with each tank so take it slow and make sure you dont have any guns nearby when you are playing them. Cause blowing your brains out is better than playing some of them i.e AT2

Badger line going up is not known for being as great if you will. That and they all lack mobility. And their gun's are not really good until you get to the tier 9. The SU's before the Obj still has armor and mobility, and decent guns going up. So it's less of a pain to grind. I suspect that's why. And ofc the hype the tier X there has. Badger is not bad tbh. As the gun on it can hold any lane. But the road to it is less then fun tbh.

Speed and traverse is a killer vs meds and lights on any map. And up to tier 9 they have some massive weak spots on the roof most can easily pen even after the buffs. SU line less so besides their paper lower plate. But at least you can hide that on most maps. Tho the AT-7 has the gun on the opposite side of the roof spot. So have the gun out of the corner, and the cupola behind the wall, and you can hold it all day. 

 

 

But it's basically down to if you want great DPM, armor and no speed. Or Alpha, no dpm, armor and some speed. Tho going the 268 4 is not the worst idea considering the new Personal missions. As on the 2nd tank, you need a Chinese or Russian tank to bounce, do and take 12K combined damage on the last mission for them. So the 268 4 might be a good contender there. And for most of the missions on the 2nd tank.

well i have the tolerance for sure. i grind through every tank i own without spending money on free xp and i dont even have a perm acc.

i think badger is more verastile vs v4 since it has a very accurate gun it doesnt need to go face to face with enemies but it has the armor to do so if need be.

tnx for the advice i think im going to give up on my su 101 for now and go for the badger.

Have both, dont play either very much because tier 10 is not the place if you want to have fun.

thanks for taking the time to reply 

i was going to sell the su101 but if  its useful for mission then im going to keep it for a while.

and yes AT tank are mostly jokes maybe beside t8 but most british tanks are crap in low tiers i guess. if they are good as ure saying in tier 8 and up im ok with it.

i try not to rush the grind so it can be less frustrating.

Look some tank line are good overal but their Tier 10 sucks. Some lines are garbage from the beginning but they have a great T10 like badger and FYI Udes was and is awesome. T28 prot while not the best is far from being the worst. Cant speak for T69 since I havent progressed that much into that line

i played udes its very situational i think. in most maps its useless unless ure in a big open map which i rarely get it will get wreck. but yes when u get a chance to play some open maps its another story.

I've not played the SU's after the line changes etc. As I was on the old tier 9 when the changes came. So no idea how they are to play now, but I know how their armor works when playing other tanks. And if they are same tier or higher then me. It's a tricky thing to deal with vs most of my guns at med to long range. Tho pre-change I had little love for them, and the tier 8 was the worst stock grind on the line. No idea how they are now tho. But I still only did keep the tier 9 and X on that line. 

 

On the UK line, I've kept the tier 8, 9 and X. I had little love for the tier 5 to 7. AT-15 has armor and no mobility. But what I liked about that was the DPM and the gun arch. Go to a corner and use the max arch you can on your gun, and you have so much effective armor it's silly. That and the mantle weakspot is now removed. Still terrible on open maps vs the SU's. But on urban maps or corridors. They can dominate. So again.. down to style I guess.
