As the title says, what is the best tier X arty?

 

I will only use it for random games.

 

I already unlocked the T92 and I am grinding the other tier 9 arties.

I know it used to be the Conqueror GC, but I believe it got a slight nerfing a while back, not sure if that was enough to push it off the top spot though. Even the official wiki lists it as the "Conqueror Orbital Laser Carriage". I've also heard it referred to as the "Orbital Death Cannon" and "The Death Star", so that should give you some idea of how insanely powerful it is/was.

for reliability, I still feel the 261 is the middle of the road dependable arty. Though it's not the hardest hitting or biggest burst, I found it able to perform more consistently over more maps.

For starters, stick with the GWE.

CGC and T92 are great for splashing targets behind cover, but the long reloads and bad accuracy make them somewhat inflexible. 261 simply lacks ammo to make use of its great reload speed in long battles (these days, you want to be either shooting or reloading the whole game, not waiting for the perfect shot). And the BC is too specialized with it's 155mm autoloader gun..

I have all tier X artys in my garage and like each of them....but for different reasons.  Having said that, I think the GW E100 is the best overall.  It is not the best or worst at almost anything, but it does everything well.  It is truly an all purpose arty at tier X.  It is my most played tier X by a fairly large margin. 

 

But, once again, all are good.  Which is the best for you is something you will have to decide for yourself.  None of us can tell you that.  Try them all out on the Common Test Server and see which fits your play style the best.

Thank you for you replies.

 

GWE100 will be the first I will buy. Only a few k xp to go.

 

But ofcourse I will wait until it's on discount ;)

I have all but the german one. So between those i like Conq GC the most. Second would be t92, third 261, and last would be BC58.

Used to like 261 the most but after the nerf it's too weak. T92 for some reason is very unlucky. Statistically should be better than Conq but i barely hit with it and the damage is lacking for that gun. Conq sucks too but it's the only arty i can deal damage reliable with. BC is utterly crap, very low splash area, stun time and damage. Only good thing i can say about it is that it aims fast and has an autoloader which makes it the only arty in which i came very close two times in completing SPG-15 for 260.

You could have used the search function, as there is quite a good topic about it already, but it doesn't give me the info I need.

I think I will go for G.W. E 100. Others seem to have too long reload and accuracy is usually just a joke, based on RNG. Also I have a few blueprints on that line already.

If you play clan games, Obj261 seems to be the most viable for it's mobility. 

 

For randoms I think any of them is good. I have CGC and T92 hmc and they're both ok I guess, since most missions require either stun duration or multiple stuns. 

 

Pros of CGC are higher bullet travel arc so you are not as much hindered by obstacles. It has high dmg and large splash. 

Cons of CGC are inaccuracy, lack of mobility and on some maps it lacks range too compared to other arty of it's tier. 

 

Pros of T92 Hmc are high dmg and large splash radius and rather fast shell velocity. 

Cons of T92 are slow reload, no gun depression, low mobility and inaccuracy. 

 

Just my 5 cents on the matter. 

 

Currently I'm happy with the ones I have and unless I'm facing some mission that suddenly requires me to grind higher tier soviet arty, I'm not gonna bother.
