So as topic name says.

What can you do with this TD in this mode ?

 

It is sneaky ?

- Enemies spot you from other side of the moon.

 

Snipe ? 

- Gun cant hit a barn in an empty field.
- Your team camps behind you.

 

Armor ?

- Every enemy snipes you from full speed no problem. 
- There is no such thing as armor on this TD.

 

 

Im strugling to find a good thing about this TD.

They're ok out in the field but become useless in the cities, still think the Churchill is worse.

Not that bad imo. It has the alpha atleast and decent penetration.

 

For me the worst and the most useless I find the Churchill squad. They are bad at everything - no armor, slow, bad guns.

 

The best is definetly the IS line. They can do everything - good armor, good pen, good alpha, ok speed. And the TD is like an IS with no turret, worse armor but better speed. So yeah, I agree there is no point in playing the TD if you have the soviet heavy, but then again, why to also play the other tanks too since IS is basically everything the other tanks have but better except for mobility ? I only played the other tanks for the x15 but most of them are useless.

I've only been playing the TD - works ok for me.  The main downside is that having multiple TD on same team is a hp liability - haven't won yet in this scenario.

Yes didn't win despite doing 10k damage battles in this td and many not expecting to get penned by the bots which they do.

But most annoying thing is bots being able to snap shot you and shoot you when they are not even pointing your way sometimes where lag or bug its not good.

The issue I had with that group, is that they have penetration as an "advantage". But that pen bonus is the same or less vs the others on tier I & II to make a difference. You still have to aim as well. That and... not all maps and their paths are made with one with no armor or turret in mind. Tho, highest damage games I've seen and done are all in that group. But only farming the field on Siegfried Line. Less so on the other maps.

 

I suspect that is one of the groups that will do well on tier III vs I.

Had one game on Ruinberg with 3 SU85's, one Sherman and one Churchill. It did not end too well on stage 3 and 4.

Played all the tier Is and I have to say I find them quite balanced. T34 is the best, but not by much. Churchill the worst.

 

Actually enjoyed the TI and II Shermans. Some 15k damage battles there.

At level III, ISUs are pretty good and really help your team chewing through enemies' HP in time. They are more demanding to play because you need to have an idea how the map plays and position accordingly. It's probably the class one should level last..

 

But... As in random battles, too many of them are a liability, because they can't tank damage and are awkward to play in some city maps.

I thought TDs would suck, but I enjoy grinding the SU more than sherman (finished) and churchill(nearly finished).

 

But the tanks are immensely unbalanced. A team only IS and T-34/44 is way more effective.

I'd rather play the other classes, but fact remains that I need the TD's daily multiplier bonus for event progress.

The TD is the one that takes most skill to play well in my opinion. Also you can't fight enemy TDs, they will pen you at least once while you move into position.

Last battle I was top by damage on my team, since the heavy on my team only camped and the rest wasn't that useful either, while they all had a turret and I did not.. We lost, because I was the only one playing offensive even with low hp. I managed to get some bounces with sidescraping. The best thing for me is the alpha.

The only reason I played the td was to get the x15 bonus

No turret and the lowest hp pool is obviously a really bad combination in what's always going to either be a total city map or eventually transitions into a city brawl. This was much the same with Steel Hunter in which it quickly became clear to players the going with the big beefed up armor was the sensible choice on a city map unsurprisingly. In this mode the turretless TD's are just as awkward and vulnerable around these streets and rubble as ever along with not really hitting that hard, not aiming fast so they can't really get enemy tanks out of there fast enough before these snap shot kings of Germany demolish you along with their scumbag focusing clickers lol. 

 

I tried them all and clearly the IS and T-34 are a cut above the rest and most suited to this mode(Russia tanks are the best? who knew lol) and that's because the IS is a heavy tank that gets that fat hp pool to soak up shots but it's also got a big gun, some armor, decent mobility and just about all one needs in this game mode really. It doesn't have the ability to shoot fire and the SPG is only ok but still the tank itself is probably the best of all of them. The T-34 is pretty good and a bit more fun to play but its a smaller hp pool and weak armor while the gun that's described as accuracy and fast aiming is anything but. It does have the incendiary shell which is very fun to use I must say and of course it also has the best form of aerial attack, those rockets, which sets anything it hits on fire and really nice if you catch a group of bots together.

 

The allied made tanks obviously suck because in this game if your not Russian you ain't nothing. The Sherman just straight up isn't as good as the T-34, bad gun and aim time etc. It gets the incendiary but a far inferior aerial attack. The Churchill heavy tank is described as being slow but having excellent armor however its just slow with no armor in truth since the Panthers pop holes in it for fun. This is made even worse with the gun not actually being able to pop holes back in the Panther and just a useless pea shooter making it a slow easy to hit target with no armor and no firepower, particularly useless for those Boss showdowns. Also it gets shafted when it comes to it's "specials" since all it really gets is a speed boosts to momentarily give it mobility parity with other tanks along with some inferior aerial attack compared to the T-34. Even the TD is a better choice than this thing.

I really like the T2 and 3 US tanks though, even if T1 was underwhelming (shoot on the move though, it actually has better accuracy that way then when stopped and not fully aimed in).
