Hi All

I'm a returning player having had quite a few years away from serious WOT playing (other than the occasional drop in during holidays). Tanks seem to be much quicker, higher tier tanks are OP and good damage seems achievable only with regular use of higher AP/gold ammo. My old go-to tanks like the KV1, T29 and T32 are a bit slow and unable to get to the action or have much effect. My ave damage has dropped greatly, which is no surprise really. Despite 12k battles I feel like I'm learning the game and layout of new and old maps again.


So, be gentle, but any recommendations of tech lines med or heavy (to tier 7/8) to pursue? What's popular now? Or is it worth getting a prem tank to re-aquaint my learning curve (do they still have preferenetial rankings?).


Advice very welcome.


And finally, how do you play Provence and Highway when spawning from the south of both maps?? I don't think I've been involved in a win on either yet!!

T29 is probably the best T7 heavy.

I'd suggest you to try Tiger P for fun factor.

The T29 remains the best tier 7 tank overall I'd say, the T32 can indeed only be made to work with gold, but that has always felt to be the case.

As for suggestions, the tier 6 German tanks are all good, tier 7 Swedish Leo is a hidden gem alongside the EBR Hotchkiss, while at tier 8 the T-44 remains the go-to tech tree medium, tho the Italian Pantera ia also very good, albeit foregoing survivability for more firepower.

There isn't really a specific "good line" I'd say, the more time goes on it seems like WG is spreading the better tanks for each tier between tech trees and even branches.

I'd say you should just play the tanks you enjoy playing.

But if you want to be meta, just flash out your credit card and pay for the newest tier 8 premium tanks.

This plus 430U. Yeah I know you were after tier 7 or 8 but if you're going to sink time into grinding and re-learning, perhaps think of the end goal......

You'd be very disciplined to stop at tiers 7 or 8.
