It would be better to join a clan now so you can play CW with them, learn the meta and learn their tactics.

Joining just before the campaign and not knowing what maps/tactics the clan plays will mean you probably won't get picked for the games in the campaign

430U, EBR, 277 and I guess the Bobject 268 V4 is still valid.

V4 and 430u more situationnal than alternative, depending on tactics and map. 

 

From techtree, 277 can be an alternative to 260. 

 

Ebr105 must have light. 

 

Sometimes, stb1 and leo1 are used on some maps, tho 1 max each (ex : cliff mid for stb1)

does it make any sense to play  in clan wars as a hired gun?

Depends on what you mean with hired gun?

You can't join as a Legionnaire in campaigns, but you can join in Skirmishes and Advances. So to compete in a campaign you need to join the clan.

You can however join a clan for the campaign and leave right after if you know of a clan that has spots for you. Just like for any other reason to temporarily join a clan.

 

As for tanks.

Light: EBR

Medium: Obj 140

Heavy: WZ 5A, 277 or SConq (260 or 279e)

TD: STRV

Arty: Any really except french.

 

If you have all these, you should be able to find a spot in most clans that can't run full CW reward setups.

If you arent planning on getting cw tanks, then i doubt it matters what tanks you have.

 

If you are then try to find a clan thats willing to carry you for 1 campaign to get a 907 and you're set. Having 1 guy with 140 isnt that big of a deal for most clans ( that can get more tanks than 10 per campaign)

430U isn't valid at all in CWs, except for very specific tactics on some maps.

 

Even Obj140 is better.

I would talk to members of clans that do CWs. before dipping your toe in that water. But from experience, 907, STRV (map dependant) 260, IS7, 279e (the tank that made me give up CWs) and EBR105, S Conq, 430U/140

 

Its a slog, lots of waiting around during the campaign weeks, its why i dont begrudge the effort required to get tanks, I just wish the tanks available were balanced.  Saying to my wife, Babe, I'm going be online for from 18:00 to 23:00+ for two weeks, doesnt go down well.

 

Its corrupt. IMO, I've been approched twice for money to have my account played in a good clan, (not this recent campaign however), I asked why I was targeted for such an offer and people look at accounts with a lot of premium tanks, meaning I have the funds to pay for such an offer.  But I will always treat such offers as a scam,  And if you ever see me with a Chieftain/907, i've sold my soul.  WG do nothing to stop this. 

 

Still want the tanks, just no longer willing to put that effort in again only to come up short in position or lack of bonds for the auction.

Hi!

 

If you want to be in an active and friendly community you are welcome to apply to our clan: 

 

[-GODS] God's of Decimating Supremacy

 

Viable tanks non CW-reward tanks are:

 

Light: EBR 105

Medium: Obj 140 (430U is ok but a bit slow)

Heavy: WZ 5A, 277, 260, SConq, Maus and E100

TD: STRV, E3

Arty: T92 and GC mostly

 

On occasion we also use the Foch B, E4, 60TP, Stb1, Leopard 1 and a few more. 

 

It is often a good idea to have multiple options as tanks may be locked out or alternatives are needed because others don't have the right pick.

ebr - and get good with it in randoms, learn bushes etc
cgc - get good in randoms, learn positions etc and learn to move after every shoot to avoid being traced
260 - you will get it by mastering every other class in game
(277 can work same job sometimes, i saw some good clans take it rather than 260)
(some lower-rated clans still use wz-111-5a - good tank though, idk why it's out of meta, maybe because of speed, 7 degrees of gun depression can be nice)
obj 140 - still can work as substitute for 907 - everyone is shooting gold in cw so armor of 907 isn't much better than 140, it can bounce shoot or 2 and can decide tense battle but usually team can survive presence of 1 or 2 140s.

e3 and e4 for specific maps
e3 can hold banana on himmelsdorf better than 279e, gold is going through everything. can also be used in window at ruinberg to hold the base - frontally impenetrable if you hide lower plate and have insanely good HE shell (1100 alpha iirc)
e4 is good for ensk and sometimes for paris where you need big gun with a lot of pen that also have turret.

strv 103 b - bushwanker sniper - learn positions with it too - not used too often also

 

leopard 1 - for prokhorovka where you need sniper but you also need flexibility - not used too often
stb1 - usefull for cliff, 1 or 2 of them to hold hull down on hill - low priority tank for your grind, if you ask me
tvp t50/51 - can clip on mines and cliff - low priority tank
batchat - can work in 1 or 2 maps - ruinberg and himmel - low priority tank
50b - also, ruinberg and himmel - low priority
t100lt - usefull only for mines push when you need to counter enemy 
 

some of them also use super conq - too slow imo and out of CW meta but hey... whatever works is fine, but wouldn't put it as a priority
 

keep in mind that teams need 2 or 3 ebr max, max 2 e3 or e4, max 2-3 artas (rarely)

first group are tanks that you should get first, if you ask me

then as you go down through text you will find tanks that can be used but should be lower on your priority list. :)

I think enough advice has been given to the OP.

We don't want this to get into a thread of Clans advertising.

The OPcan now decide if he wants to join a clan and can do his searching, or advertising in the appropriate sections.
