What tier 10 tanks do most people use and are they worth grinding?

 

Thanks!

907, S.Conq, WZ5A, 277, 113, IS7, 268-4, STRV103b, E4, Maus, Type5, T-100 LT, BC, CGC.

 

That's pretty much what is used, or at least what I can think of during morning coffee...

 

Only good tanks are used in CW so they should be all worth it. (For randoms I would leave out 113, type5 and CGC).

Grille fits on some tactics/maps

E3 is the only one I'd add to that list and the t92

The main force usually consists of mobile tanks with decent armor and guns:

- mobile Heavies: Wz5A, 277, IS-7

- armored Mediums: 907, 140, 430U

- mobile armored TDs: 268v4

Sometimes you'll also see a larger group of S-Conqs used.

 

On city maps where mobility doesn't matter you'll also see lots of Type 5, Maus and E3+4.

 

Other tanks listed here are used, but usually no more than one or two per team for special tasks, so unless your clan is in desperate need of those don't bother with them. If you're looking for tanks to grind your best pick would probably be one of Wz5A, 277, IS-7, 140, 430U or 268v4.

T92 is the worst clicker I've had the displeasure of playing with. Sold it immediately. Seems like going from a Lambo to a VW Golf Mk 7.

and that's just you ... there are enough other players that can make that thing work and it doesn't have the arc the CGC has but it still covers allot of real estate.

that's why its still a viable option if you ask me.

 

i myself don't have it yet but i have the GW, CGC and the 261. currently working on the T92 (on the m55) so i can't say if its good/gr8/terrible but i'm not getting my hopes up ... it'll be a clicker as you call it and it will never be lazor guided or super enjoyable. its just something that's handy and needed in CW every now and then.

Obj 140

WZ-1115A

268v4

Type 5

 

in that order. Sconq sometimes used on hilly maps but it's a terrible grind untill you elite the Caern.

Thank you all for replying to this thread

 

I'll leave the Kranvagn and probably move over to the Russian heavy and medium line because they seem like a good choice.

 

Appreciate it!

I don't know but I think that compared to the is7 its a little inferior in terms of dispersion, armour, speed gun depression.

Huh. I anyway wanted to write about this quite a while ago, so why not. 

 

 

Lights

 

AMX 13 105 is a faster Bat with more camo which has a smaller clip potential in return. It is something between a T100 and a Bat, and as such, it isnt a specialist really, therefore it rarely gets picked. There are a few situations and tactics, where I would prefer it over the other two tanks mentioned, but those are rare occasions and it is not a tank that I would advise grinding between your first 10 tier10s if you want to concentrate on CW only. 2/10

Rhm Panzerwagen is the fastest one out of the 5, but this is its only advantage. Just avoid it. 1/10

T-100 LT is the go-to light for CWs. It excels the Bat in mobility, camo and armor, but it doesnt have the clip potential to be deadly in close combat. Therefore it gets picked on open maps for both active and passive scouting roles, but on city maps you will see Bat picked because of the fact that there the ability to cause damage is necessary. If you want a light for CW, go for it. 6/10

WZ-132-1 is a generalist again, it can be enjoyable in randoms but it isnt a CW tank. 1/10

Sheridan is similar to WZ, but because of its trollgun it is somewhat commonly used on Mines when going for the hill as a shield. I havent seen it on any other map since it got introduced. 1/10

 

 

Medium tanks

 

121 is a worse 113, therefore it doesnt see any usage. 1/10

AMX 30B is just a worse M48 Patton and the Patton itself isnt that great either. 1/10

Bat25t is the scout on closed maps and the tank which you use if you want to get a position and cause damage from there. I would recommend grinding it, even though everyone and their mother has it from your clan most likely. 5/10

CAX is the WZ-132-1 of mediums, great for randoms, not really for competitive. 1/10

E50M see above. 1/10

K-91 the sniper paper rasha medium, but in CWs you pick Strv for its role. 1/10

Leo1 badly needs a buff. 1/10

M48 Patton might be used in some cases, but if it gets into position, SC is just better than M48. 3/10

Object 140 if you dont have a 907, grind this for CW and if you play enough campaign battles, you will have a 907 also. 907 is marginally better but 140 is perfectly fine for the same role as well. 8/10, 907 is more like 8.5/10

Object430U is somewhere inbetween a heavy and a medium, but it isnt any of them truly and this means that it is great for randoms, maybe one of the strongest tanks out there for pubs, but in CWs it rarely sees usage. 113, 5A and 277 are better heavies and 907/140 has better DPM therefore in a shootout 907/140>430U. 5/10

Progetto65 is something between a TVP and a Bat, and as such, it doesnt see usage. 1/10

STB-1 used to be great, but it got powercreeped. 1/10

T62-A isnt a bad tank, but 140 and 907 are better. 1/10

TVP 50/51 does get picked sometimes, for those occasions when you have to cause significant damage early in the game under a short period of time, but Bat does everything else better. 3/10

 

 

Heavy tanks

 

113 is the mobile heavy which you pick if you want speed and DPM. I recommend this one. 8/10

AMX 50B has clip potential, is fast and has good gun handling. It does see some usage, but it heavily depends on your FC, on the map and the tactic used. 4/10

AMX M 54 has to be avoided by everyone. SC is better if you use the small gun, if you use the big one, than you have a turd. 1/10

E100 is a worse VK7201K, but it is also worse than a Type5. If you dont have neither of those and you are in a clan which does not have a lot of tanks and experience, you might want this, but in serious clans you wont play it ever. (Sometimes in hipster tactics its great versus Type5s but ONLY against Type5s because E100 has more effective DPM, but against a hulldown E3 Type5 wins, E100 doesnt even scratch it...) 3/10

IS-4 another big no-no. 1/10

IS-7 is picked quite commonly, when you need a hulldown spotter, which does stand quite effectively artafire. Its gun sucks though, for ridgefighting, SC>IS-7 4/10

Kranvagn is a worse SC. Its only advantage is the impenetrable turret when facing it frontally, but in every other aspect it is worse. Dont go for it. 1/10

Maus doesnt see common usage after its nerf. You will only see 1-2 on specific maps for soaking up damage, but against Type5s it just loses. 3/10

Object 277 is a mobile heavy which you pick if you need speed+alpha. Recommended. 8/10

Object 705A I havent seen one since its introduction even though I play daily CWs and sometimes advances. 1/10

PZ 7 same goes for it. 1/10

Super Conqueror is the standard ridgefighter and brawler, with an amazing gun. It is really vulnerable to arty and HE tough, especially to CGCs and Balance5s. 7/10

T110E5 is a faster SC with HEAT but with that cupola, which makes it useless after its nerf. 1/10

T57 is the brawler version of 50B, worse gun stats but better DPM and HEAT. It does see usage on city maps time to time in given tactics. 4/10

Type5 is the go-to city superheavy. Its premium HE damages everything effectively. You want this tank if you want a superheavy for CW. 7/10

WZ5A is a mobile heavy which you pick if you need alpha+DPM. Go for it, you will get 113 also from the same tier9 if you dont have it yet. 8/10

 

 

Tank Destroyers

 

Foch B is not a CW-tank, mainly because of the lack of turret and the somewhat lacking penetration even with APCR. 1/10

Badger is an E3 with DPM but without alpha. Most FCs prefer E3 over it. 2/10

FV4005 has no armor whatsoever and has a trollgun. Great for pub fun, not really for CW. 1/10

Grille15 has no armor whatsoever and it doesnt even have a trollgun. 1/10

JGE100 is dependant on RNG, it doesnt have a turret and even though it is slow, its armor isnt really good versus gold ammo neither. 1/10

Object268 has the highest DPM of the 750 alpha TDs but it is turretless in the end and doesnt have armor neither. 1/10

Object268v4 after its nerf, it only remained good and unique in pushing a straight line or holding a position on a straight line with no flanking and sideshot opportunities. You might want it if you have 10 other CW tanks. 3/10

Strv103B is the invisible DPM machine, on open maps in pairs it can cause really significant damage under a short period of time. 4/10

T110E3 is the hulldown turretless TD for city maps. It loses its HP against Type5s though, therefore it cant be picked in great numbers. 3/10

T110E4 has a semi-turret and has THAT penetration when going APCR. It is used in city maps, to counter Type5s at longer ranges. 3/10

WZ-113G FT forget this one. 1/10

 

 

Artillery

 

BC 155 58 is bad and it doesnt see usage. 1/10

CGC is picked if you want to shoot behind ridges and cause high damage+stun a lot of tanks with a single shot. 5/10

GWE100 has the most effective DPM, but it isnt mobile. 3/10

Object 261 mostly hits where it aims, but it doesnt do a lot of damage and it doesnt have enough ammo neither. Not used. 1/10

T92 HMC is hitting hard, and it does hit more often than CGC does, but it has a limited gun arc. On open maps without ridges, T92 is better than CGC I think. 4/10

 

 

I rated every tank to grind on a scale of 1 to 10. 1=never gets picked, dont grind it, 10=it is in every CW battle, grind it. It is subjective though and most of the people out there would debate with this or that number, its just my point of view. It is supposed to give a general view. To get an exact number, I would have to collect data for months without the meta changing on different skill levels. It would be a fun option though. 

 

TLDR: Grind 140, 277, Type5, SC, WZ5A and 113 and you are fine.
