I just started playing again after a long break and i am not sure which line(s?) i want to grind now, so im looking for some recommendations.

 

My favorites last time i played was Charioteer, Cromwell(Got the B variant just before i stopped playing), bulldog and hellcat.

I started to grind for the bc 25 t just before i stopped playing (Got to tier 6)  but not sure if thats worth going for anymore, not seeing many bc 25 t ingame(?)

Currently grinding the Centurion 1 and the Conway. but they feel too slow compared to the previous tanks in those lines that i liked.

Hard tanks.

 

Super Conqueror is great if you like british, otherwise good old IS 7 or obj 277 are a good option too.

I got both the obj. 257 and T-10 (I think i got the T-10 because of a tech tree change or something?), i only played heavies when i started but found out i preferred the faster tanks, i think thats still the case but i will give the heavies a try again, i havent played them for a few years so might as well try..

If you like fast tanks, the T-10 and 277 will be perfect for you. They're so called 'heaviums' with decent armour, mobility and a punchy gun. Fantastic tanks apparently.

430U is pretty much the best heavy tank and best medium so a good line to grind. Very noob friendly as well. The Super Conq is pretty amazing so another great line to work down. IS7 is good but with all the super type 5's, the gold pen really is not good enough. The turret is amazing but you can't really always get hull down.

You do know that nobody is forcing you to play tier 10.The sweet spot is tier 7 and 9.Tier 6 and 8 blows chunks too though so there is that.Wait a minute,you might be on to something.

Which gap is larger in your opinion, the gap between tier 6 and 8 or between tier 7 and 9?

 

@OP Since you like fast tank go for some light tank line, you can have some fun while getting back into the game. The AMX line is very good so is the T100 line.

 

When they introduced the 257 which now lead to the IS-7 instead of the T-10. Everyone who had a T-10 in their garage was given a 257 for free. Both the T-10 and 257 are good but the 257 is a bit slower and got more armor.

 

Tier 9 is the sweet spot for a lot of people because of the MM, 3-5-7 template, so you might consider playing up to tier 9.

One point for you to note on the Conway line is that the FV4005 is rather popular at the moment, but with WG having already announced a total change to all premium ammo later this year, it may lose it's attraction.

1. 257

2. T-10

3. Object 430U

4. SuperConqueror

5. CAX

 

257 and T-10 are both heaviums. Their armour is not super tough but for heavy tanks they make up for that weakness with speed.

Object 430U - a meduim with the armour layout of some heavies.

SuperConqueror - that gun handling.

CAX - because you enjoy the Cromwell line. CAX is fun, just not very good compared to some other mediums (USSR)

You left the e100 off your list!

Kind of funny people are only suggesting Russian tanks seriously.

 

Funny as in "Wargaming balance" funny.

 

Lets just face it, why would you play any non-Rrussian tanks besides autoloaders and autoreloaders like Batchats and Progettos and Czechs. Blyats.

 

Maybe Super Conqueor is the only exception. Chinese 5A is also nice, but the grind is abysmal.
