Hi,

 

After a long stop with the game I 'm trying to get back and unlock some of the new ans shiny vehicles. I already unlocked the British, American, Russian (140) and German (E50 and leopard) med lines. Currently in ma garage I have the E50, t54 (I don't quite enjoy this one) and m46 Patton, and I plan to re-buy the leopard pta.

 

I'm hesitating between the Czech autoloaders and Italian autoreloaders. From what I have heard, there seem to be a consensus that the italians are better and more flexible, but I also heard that a nerf is coming soon. I'm mainly interested by the T9, since I'm not good enough for t10. I already have the t6 for each one of this two lines.

 

So my question is what would you recommend for a person like me (average) which priority is fun ? czech or italian ? taking the upcoming nerfs into acount.

 

Thank you in advance.

The choice should be very simple.

Which of the two lines has the one and only medium tank capable of taking on - and defeating the Defender?

Italians are more flexible imho ... The czechs,  you only really do it for the tier IX and X, can be a bit circumstantial at times but when the stars align they can be devastating.

Progetto is way better. It has trollish armor , 360 alpha , good accuracy over range and an auto reloader system

I totally gave up on the Czech line at tier V or VI vowing that I would never touch it again seeing as it's sole purpose seemed to be to try to get you to waste free experience in order to get to tier IX and X.

On the other hand I had a lot of fun grinding up to tier IX on the Italian line (even though I am still far away from having the discipline needed to avoid emptying the clip each time).

It's ok. There are others who blow their load prematurely each time as well.

Thank you guys so I'm getting both !

 

Its was already my plan but with a priority on Czech line (I already unlocked half of the blueprints for the skoda t50). With you advices I think I will give the priority to the Italian line (and hope that they stay good after the nerf).

 

I generally try to not use my free xp to skip tanks so I will have to suffer through the t34/100.

Italian for flexibility, Czech if you are into bursting.

I got both. Both are good.

 

But you shouldn't be in any rush for the Italians as they are slated to be nerfed. The Czech won't fail you. TVP VTU, despite its induced reputation over the Defender humorous take, is not as bad as people claim.

Top engine isn't required though recommended. I play it with the stock turret and middle gun as the top turret deprives you from the much needed gun depression.

I had that problem many years ago, and then my doctor prescribed a pill.

It has trollish armor , 

only if you autoaim on it, like most idiots in the game, the same way it is with AMX 50 B.

 

on topic:

get both of them, although progetto is getting nerfed, so that might change your mind.

Both tier 9s are very solid for meds, I have a sweetspot for the Italian but as you said yourself it is going to be nerfed probably.

Well, *if* the Italians are getting nerfed (don't know about that), then pick the Czechs, obviously.

 

And if the Italians aren't getting nerfed, pick them.

P.S.

Or take both, they're both nice lines.

Your call on which one to pick first.

For now, Italian line is slightly better than CZ line,

but both are top medium line...

Both are great lines. The flexibility of the Italians is definitely a big plus, and I consider the Standard B one of the best tier 9 tanks of all time.

However, there's something magical about the tier 9 and 10 Czech tanks. The mobility is absolutely amazing, and that short burst clip is super satisfying to pull off. You just empty your clip like it's nothing, absolute joy.

Thank you I'm getting both, I was able to fully unlock the Skoda t50 (so no need to play the TVP VTU) with blueprints and I may take the battle pass that will allow me to skip the t34/100 also.

 

I'll try to do the same for the italian although I'm waiting a little bit (I don't have enough credit) to see what happens with the nerfs.
