As above.

 

I see most good/great players do so. I think I've reached a plateau, skill-wise, and I'm not progressing further. Using WN8 as a metric. It's flawed but at least it is more hollistic. Since you can only find them in the upper echelons, I'll get there to face them.

 

Hence, I'd like to ask for tips from the unicum who plays Tier X tanks more often than not. Credits are not an issue as of this moment.

 

This is also to grind bonds. Not for the SoF but I made my goal to accumulate them.

 

But this means "proper" tanks and not those who are easy to play with (SPGs, TDs, Type 5, etc).

 

All constructive input is welcomed.

I'm not particularity good player but i do enjoy tier 10 as its a break from the stupidity seen at tier 8 with all the inexperienced players in their premium vehicles.

 

Grand battles are a great deal of fun and are quite a leveller, as not everyone knows them as well as the regular maps.

 

i had 5 tier 10's on my main and the only non "easy" tanks i enjoyed where the OBJ140 and M48 

 

STB-1 was my first tier 10 on my main, the biggest let down i ever had,  I quit for 3 months because of that p.o.s

 

T100LT Was fun due to speed but essentially the gun was so bad it was not even worth attempting to press left click

 

T110E3 is the only tier 10 other than an arty that i will ever need mainly because its pretty easy to play and I'm kinda bad at tier 10

 

The only advice  I can impart is to simply play a ton of games in your chosen tank and not switch to anything else, wait out the battle if dead and repeat ,

 

If in doubt go Russian the OBJ140 is very nice and looks very cool too

I don't get what are you asking? Tips to improve?

For bonds enable grand battles, they farm it well.

 

Tier X is good for credits, because you constantly have 10 tier 8 to farm ruthlessly.

 

For competitive play you must select those tanks that have 3 things:

  • good mobility
  • nice profile / armor
  • decent gun handling

 

popular for performances are russian mediums, chinese wz, russian heavies / lights are also good, french autoloaders can do well but are hardcore, and also superconqueror, patton and centurion are nice. German: only E 50 M is worthy to be competitive rest is trash.

 

One of the best imho is 277 heavium it's a jack of all trades

Since the new MM I have only played tier 10. Tier 8 is too frustrating because I always meet tier 10s and in those games it's really hard to carry your team. In a tier 10 you're always top tier so you are able to carry your games. The 3/5/7 mm is just a spin at the lottery, your team gets bot E100, enemy team gets unicum WZ 5A, those games are just frustrating.

OK. So basically CW tanks. Roger on that.

 

I have GB enabled but SoF is hogging the Tier X populace. Not for long, though.

i've been playing mostly T10's for the last 4/5 years ... just do your damage and don't spam prammo and you'll be good credit wise.

 

besides that i play all classes so idk what you think of to be propper class but just have fun i'd say

(yes i'm not a unicum so my opinion doesn't matter i know)

Food, heat and situation awareness. That's all you need to compete in tier 10 random.
