Nice. Finished the Su85 grind Thursday, so I can buy the SU100 today. Aim is to get the T8 this month, but with playing once a week and Frontline, we will see. GL to all who are going to play this line.

 

Oh, and WG. Since you nerfed the rewards and the 20k dmg for 5k xp missions, can you consider adding a month long 50% discount on (re) training crews for TotT tanks?

I´ll take advantage atleast playing through the SU-100. After that, not so sure.

I honestly think people shouldn't go further than the ISU-152 in that line. ISU-152 is the highlight of the line. The tanks after it are more of a sidegrade with the gun staying relatively similar.


Besides, compared to the Bobject V4, the O268 is rubbish.

Kept the SU100 as its a useful mid tier TD

Bought back the SU152 because its fun to use that big derp gun sometimes.

Used to like the ISU152 then they nerfed the pen on the gun, from 286 down to 260 Its still decent but used to be great.

So here I am on the Object 704 I will finish off the line and then see which I want to keep playing.

really? the highlight of the line imo is the 704.. the bounces that people do on that thing and just overall imo the tank looks epic.. the combination of everything. <3

The line has honestly been fun so far, currently unlocking the best gun on the ISU which should be the crown jewel of the line if im not mistaken.

 

The tier 10 seems really weak, it's easy to pen close range so it's not really a brawling TD imo. Long range you have that awful shell velocity hindering the snipes. Just seems like an ok mid-range support to me at best.

From what I can see in game, I think that they actually "fixed" the 20k damage mission and once again it does not reset daily. So that's something.

I started the grinding with the tier V SU-85 ... but I forgot that it is weekend ...

 

OMG ... what a frustration ...

 

:facepalm:

 

... all these Pro weekend warriors ...

 

Well, WG, it is time to do a step forward on the evolution of the MM, it is time to separate players by skill ...

... equal level players in both team ...

... to return back to what you promise to new players ... Epic Battles ...

... because now "The winning team is the team with the less st...(eehhmmm) bad players".

 

:playing:

268 was one of the first tanks tier 10 i unlocked, 5 years ago i think, still the line ended in 704... 268 hadn't been introduced yet. 

I never bought it, because 5-6 years ago i was mainly a f2p player, i had no prem tanks (back then no marathon, no friesbies, apart of the sherman tier5 we got for being beta testers) so credits were short. No credit reserves, very rara events, no frontlines, or Xmas events etc....

 

I remember getting in the test server just to play a couple of games with it... 


Now is the chance...

Make this TD G R E A T again and we will research it :) I can remember the time 268 was thunder of the random and CW battles... and I miss it...

and please, make SH for the tier V, VII and IX, tanks of this tier deserve to play "not only the random" battles too... :(

Russian vehicles tend to be pretty good with camo values

The ISU 152 at tier 8 has a value of 15 camo skill on the crew and you are at 27 or a camo net gets you to 30

Together and its 42 you can get it a little higher with paint vents BIA skill so 47

The Object 704 has a little better camo and can pull off a few bounces.

 

Play around with the wotinfo guide and see for yourself

Well, the highlight of this line are the SU-152, ISU-152 and the Obj704.

 

The T10 TD is one of the worst vehicles in the game at the moment and definitely not worth the time, effort and credits, even on a discount.
