As already asked in the title I wonder how you , friends of the forum , is going your GM campaign , just for curiosity.

 

Currently mine is going pretty well and I find myself steadily oscillating between the first 3000 and the first 4000 in the players' classification with currently 12,500 fame points [+40% bonus] , in the first three days I managed to stay in the top 600 too and my clan is stable among the first 100 clans.

 

I play to win the 121B , as I have already had the other 3 tanks available as a final prize.

 

...and what do you tell me about your campaign?

I am just about in the top 8k, but only just. So long as work does not get in the way I hope to maintain that position. If I manage to keep in the top 8k I will need to make a decision about my first ever tier X reward tank. I am presently torn between a 907 and a T95/FV4201 Chieftain.

907 must always be the first

T95 is clearly superior. 907 is a slightly worse 140 but with BS side armour, T95 is pretty much unrivalled in tier 10 power, its hands down the best tier 10 tank right now.

  1. a heavy tank cannot be compared to a medium tank because they cover two different roles and therefore having different characteristics cannot be compared with each other
  2. the 907 has a much higher use than the t95 in the cw and is basically played on all maps compared to t95

1. Irrelevant, its about which is stronger and T95 is clearly stronger as shown by it being the best tank for ranked. 

 

2. Reward tanks are not just for CW (and T95 sees loads of use anyway, plus again loads of 907s about but less T95s, so more likely to get picked with a T95 imo than a 907), he'll end up using it more in randoms, where its the stronger tank by far, and of course its the best tank for ranked as well (if hes doing that).

 

Its the clear better choice, plus loads of people have 907s, far less have T95s, so its the rarer/more special option as well.

 

No real contest, 907 being first choice pick is like 2015.

not playing, but IDEAL is doing what IDEAL does best and that's not really caring either, just farming Fap points for those that want the tonks

Chieftain is far superior to the 907 as far as randoms go, and i feel like they're even used more often than the 907 atm.

907 is vastly preferred over 140, since it takes actual aiming to pen 907, while 140 (hull) is basically point and shoot. Yesterday in cw, my clanmate Tajj in the ebr surprised me, he penned a 907 roof with HE from 400+ meters. Didn't know that was possible. Also iirc, 907 has better reload.

Nah not saying the 140 is preferred, but its the annoying all round armour of the 907 that makes it better than 140, but in terms of like gun depression, gun handling, accuracy etc. 140 has an edge there, its a more comfy tank.

 

Yeh 907 still has the overmatch spot doesn't it, one bit 40mm, whereas 140 had this buffed, which obsoleted the T-62A instantly. 

 

Didn't know though that the 907 had 20mm of armour at the very top of the turret and cupolas.

I'll be the first non-top-8k player to respond.

 

My clan is really enjoying the campaign but compared to previous posters our progress can only really be described as disappointing.

We came close to landing last night.  Got to the final battle against FEAR (is naming and praising against the forum rules ?)  Their 1400 elo is quite a lot higher than our 920 and we didn't expect to win but we killed a lot more of their tanks than we expected.

 

Considering the 907 vs Chieftain bickering above, FEARs team choice was predictable.  They took two EBRs, two CGCs and the rest were 907s (4 or 5) and Chieftains (6 or 7). We had one 907 and a whole variety of other things, mostly consisting of 277s.

When the dust settled and the battle over gong sounded, they had 5 tanks left, including the 2 CGCs.  It would have been amazing to beat them, but alas it was not meant to be.  So, well played to FEAR and we will keep plugging away.

 

My advice to arthur (from someone who has never played the 907 or Chieftain) is assume that the two are equally good and pick the one you think you'll play the most ... the 140-alike or the SConq-alike.

Personally I'd be tempted by the Chieftain just because ...

Chieftain is the pick if you have none. There is no replacement for it. 907 can be ghetto replaced by a 140 or you can just play something else like EBR, 260/277 or even (puke) arty.

Its the joint best tier 10 for randoms with the 279 and the best ranked tank overall. Its also way more fun and comfortable to play.

There are few CW maps which dont use at least some chieftains so fearing you wont get picked is pointless.

Have had some bad luck. One of the teams we were supposed to fight got hacked and disbanded so we got techical victory, which meant that neither the players or the clan got any fame points. This also lead us not being able to bid which meant losing even more possible points. That's one day down the drain.

 

Haven't been as active as I would want because busy at work, but playing couple hours most days puts me near top 1k. Secured the tank already most likely, which is nice. Doubt we will perform as well as last time, but atleast everyone who wants a tank gets it in our clan quite easily.

We had a poor night last night and alot of our bids failed. As a consequence we had a few rounds without a battle and I have dropped to position 8,077 just outside the tank. Hopefully over the next few nights I can get back inside the line. Still torn between 907 and T95/FV4201 Chieftain.

Can't do the campaign as I'm not home most days from 6PM until 11PM.

 

Either way, got the minimum 5 battles done and bidding 30k, likely for the 907.

Couldn't even start - too many clannies are taking a break from the game after doing hardcore-FL ;)

Doing quite well with some 14k points right now. Will be picking the 121B as I have all the others.

 

Have played 66 battles so far, all of them in T95/FV4201 Chief.

Been beating some nice opponents such as RSOP and K4E in 5x battles while the secondary team is losing pretty much every battle to keep our Elo low so we avoid the hard initial matches in tournaments.

Doing okay, a bit over 9k fame points/position 6611. We made some stupid mistakes that caused us a little setback yesterday, but for how new our clan is we should be able to get a decent amount of people into tank spots. So far, sometimes we punch well above our weight, sometimes we mess up when we really shouldn't for various reasons.
