Hey Guys,

Just recently unlocked & bought this beast, the Obj 263. Looks good on paper despite the lack of gundep and mobility. Only played 3 games so far and it sucks a bit while stock. How does this TD fit the current meta?

Finished the grind few months a go, really liked it, also fully researched it is much better. With the top gun 3k+ dmg games were usual, and I'm average Joe. Be careful, open top means arty will love u. Would not keep it, just because Bobject is insane :)

It's a heavy with no turret. Keep close to the enemy and hide your lower plate as much as you can. Avoid any uneven terrain on the map because you don't have any gun depression. Not a keeper in my opinion as the the tier 10 is much better.

Stock engine is slow but when you research the top engine + top gun, you'll love it.

 

The only tank that I never was mad at it was the 263, even in defeats. Always keep yourself behind a cover to hide your lower plate, and enjoy farming T8s and T7s. 

And never rush it's line, just try to enjoy it. ;) 

And remember that the side armour is thin, so don't try sidescraping a lot. 

Gl!

And remember to not facehug tanks with more than 250mm pen or gun greater than 90mm.

Your superstructure has a flat 250mm zone just above the engine deck, which is 30mm thick. Facehugging 263 are just free exp piñatas in tanks as the ST-1, Conqueror, E100 and such.

Lol, one of the funniest moments that I had in WoT was facehugging with T 95! :D

He can't see anything from my tank except UFP, but I can fire at his coupla.

Well, T95 is exceptionally low profile. Same would likely go for 430U. But keeping in mind enemy pen and height is very important on this tank. :)

Didn't drive it for quite a while so I don't know how it fits the meta nowadays, but anyway it's a legend.

 

A great TD that was once Tier 10. Probably still useful to do the odd bounce mission or just drive around and have some fun. The engine's strong and it's open top, 250mm steel in the front and a huge gun, what more could you want?

 

(Apart from some roofing and a turret, of course...)

It does not have a turret, therefor it's s***t per definition.

I think I would have liked it more in its previous state at tier X; mobile and great dpm. Now the dpm is very bad (annoying, especially when you play it agressively) and the accuracy is much worse than before (which makes the gun hard to work). On paper it doesn't look worth it to me at all. View range also got nerfed by 30. So basically you cannot play it like an assault td anymore, that completely kills it for me.

Sorry to be negative about it, buddy.

At first 100 battles it was great but when the honeymoon is over the reality hits you in the face and you get HE'ed, artied, penned on the lower plate and surrounded by faster tanks if you wander alone.

 

141 battles, 57% WR, 1340 avg dmg. At 100 battles I had over 61% WR so it's very noob friendly.
