Hi all

 

I have some credits to take advantage of the Gamescom discounts (20% at Tier X, that don't come around too often) so I can buy my second tier X.

 

However I only have unlocked:

- german E100. I would need a fresh crew for it, my top german heavy crew would stay in the E75 for now

- american T110E4. I would have a crew I could muster for it

- I also have the Obj 430U unlocked but I already have assigned to it the Christmass 30% discount so I could buy that at any time.

- I could also spend some 20k-ish free XP to unlock either the T-62A or the Obj140 from the T54.

 

I only have the IS-7 at tier 10, and plenty of tier 9s. Play-wise, I'm your average "Steve IS-7" that barely manages to carry its own weight in full T10 games. My main goal is to have something to dip into tier 10 and maybe complete some of the campaign missions. I need to finish last 2-3 heavy, arty and lights missions for T55, and start the Chimera campaign.

 

I don't have any Japanese "block" tanks so the E100 is a favourite for missions - but I don't have a good crew yet, and I see it's meh ATM. American TDs I have plenty and don't think the E4 will add much, but could be interesting. I would go for the Obj430U as a medium T10 but I'm not in a hurry this weekend.

 

Please share your advice - what would you choose ? Otherwise I would invest at T9 and buy the american arty and you won't like that :lol:

E75 is probably better for blocking missions but go with the E100, it will be the perfect compliment for your IS-7.

Invest in it. It's the best arty in the game tier-for-tier. :justwait: ...and the T92 will complete every arty-related personal mission with relative ease.

Darn, I am leaning towards it. I hope it will get buffed soon... maybe... Still, don't hear much good about the E4 either....

Me too, seems I always pick the wrong tanks, is it because it is German?

If you want a bad tank, research the Manticore, from the ones you listed every last of them is at the very least workable. For heavy missions Type 5 or Maus might be better choices than E 100, for arta just get the American tier IX, you don't need the tier X, 140 is still good, T 62 also good, E 4 is the opposite of the E 100, an assault gun with a better gun but less armor. Probably go for the 140 although mediums need more effort to work well.

Slow, big, easy to pen. Only thing it has is its alpha.

If you want to complete missions for tds take the t110e4. It's better than t30 imho.Some use it in CW.

Lots here think the e75 is the best tiers 9, so you should keep it.

430u is an allround medium and the american td could be good ...

E100 is fun. Not meta, far from competitive, but can carry it's weight. It has plenty of alpha, can overmatch with AP, can pen everything with HEAT and, if even this fail, you still have the derpgun mode with HE. Armour is not reliable, but can work if you put some effort in it. For damage mission, is probably the best between all the Block HTs. Really nice. :)

Imo all those tanks are good except probably E100...

 

I would reccomend you to buy t110e4 today and 430u with your xmas discount after gamescom. Then If you want a heavy for missions grind Maus line. (VK1001P, mauschen and maus, the 3 of them can work for any blocking mission).

E4 is a fantastic TD if handled correctly as a second line support vehicle not far behind the frontline heavies. It can, however, get awkward very quickly if it gets caught out of position.

Thanks for all replies. I took the E4 in the end. Primarily because I would have a crew ready fo it, but pen also looks pretty good (provided it hits). Will see how it goes.

Now I am broke again :-(

E75 used to be good, but unfortunately the slow box tank design just isn't very competitive these days.

 

E100 has at least the alpha.
