It would be useless to try to conceal from persons of the inspired intelligence of forum posters that I am but a humble vessel into which the Gods of WG pour mostly dark and brackish water, sour to the taste and inclined to produce colic or worse, as one string of disastrous battles follows on from another.

 

And yet if there is one area in which this unworthy person performs a little less abominably than others it is Tier Four.  Rightly despised by all persons of exalted taste and high discernment, Tier Four nonetheless offers at time opportunities for miserable persons such as myself, and indeed I have done slightly less atrociously at Tier Four than at other levels.

 

This thought fluttered idly today in what I am pleased to call my mind to as I failed miserably in my otherwise never-failing Ke-Ho.  My 14TP, Pz. 38 nA and Sentinel have also at times provided a crutch for this miserable cripple, as have the Matilda, Valentine and Marder 38.

 

But if there are other suggestions from the elegant persons on this forum, whose manners and accomplishments all too clearly betray them to be of the Royal House, then nothing would give me more gratification.

I'm not of the Royal House, normally the Dog House........except when I'm in my US T40, then I bite Royals.

O amiable Spurtung, doubtless you are the most expert of bottle-carriers, and on a hot and dusty day, when the insatiable desire of all persons is towards a draught of unusual length without much regard to its composition, the sight of your goat-skins is indeed a welcome omen; yet when in the season of Cold White Rains you chance to meet the belated chair-carrier who has been reluctantly persuaded into conveying persons beyond the limit of the city, the solitary official watchman who knows that his chief is not at hand, or a returning band of those who make a practise of remaining in the long narrow rooms until they are driven forth at a certain gong-stroke, can you supply them with the smallest portion of that invigorating rice spirit for which alone they crave? 

 

Nonetheless are we not turning our minds from Tier Four tanks?

It is a mystery why of all the despised Tier 4 tanks, the Polish 14TP is one of, if not the most, despised of all.  And yet the Gods have been pleased to bestow a 58% win rate on it.

Four play seems to be what I do most.  I sup at its ever filling grail.  Although I only TD, I can thoroughly commend the T40, M8A1 and SU-85B to you.  There is little that thrills the cockles more than blowing off a head of steam with a dirty little tank destroyer.

 

If you want real filth, go clubbing in a Tier 3 FCM 36 Pak 40 - watch with joy the bulging eyes of yoru Tier 4 and 5 victims as you practically one-shot them into submission.

Unutterably to the astonishment and dismay of this person and all those connected with him, some unwarranted and undeserved wins have been achieved in the 14TP.

Alas!, never was there a truer proverb than that which says, ‘It is a mark of insincerity of purpose to spend one’s time in looking for the sacred Emperor in the low-class tea-shops.'

 

Even this miserable person hesitates to stoop to Tier One.

Is there any other tier 4 then the Luchs? As besides 4 premiums "B2, Valentine II, Sentinel and T28 F30", it's the only Normal tier 4 I have, or rather need to have.

I can recommend the Chinese light tank M5A1 Stuart and the USA TD T40 played both on other accounts to good effect.

May I recommend the Italian fourplayer with its exquisite 70mm HE pen.

SU-85B has a murderous gun for a tier 4.

Tier 4 can be great fun. Hetzers & Sau40 for the derp, T40, M8A1, Su85B, M5A1, a handful of premiums as mentioned elsewhere and the ubiquitous AMX40. 

I play tier 4 sometimes for light relief and on occasion, the odd mission.

Never forget tier four ;)

 

Really, I mean it. It it one of those tiers with the widest range of different playstyles - sadly also the one that got hit hardest by the mm-changes since tier 3s cannot meet tier 5s anymore.

So your glorious duck will face higher tiers more often than not. Nontheless - great fun is to be had and several of the tanks are seriously dangerous to even tier 6es. *cough. Mathilda *cough*

M5A1 Stuart is all you need at tier 4 :D

I do enjoy a frolic at tiers 3/4/5. in actual fact I rarely head above these levels since the player base went insane.

FCM Pak, Matilda, SU85b, Chinese tier 4 TD, Luchs being my prescription for a smile :)

Fourplay has the lights Luchs, Ke-Ho and M5A1 Stuart, Covenanter with numerous other worthies vying for a garage slot.

Used to have near 400 meter base view range to go along with it.
