Another line I can instantly re-buy to have every tech tree tank in my garage. :P

 

Edit: Aaaand they're in!

Spoiler

 

Also just noticed that ToTT is 1 month again? Wasn't it like 1-2 weeks before this?

A word of advice please guys. This month i can grind the credits for just one ToT. I think i will like the Charioteer a lot but i'm a fan of autoloaders so the T69 looks promising as well. I don't intent to get the FV4005 (the big doomstick) but i might want to get the T57 if i like this line. What would you do? Is this US line any good?

Well, buddy, it’s actually pretty hard time for T57 in random nowadays...not enough speed (unlike 50B) and not enough armor (unlike Kranvagn turret).

In July 2020 good tank in WoT is about either speed and  gun for maneuvering  (Prog, STB, Leo etc.) or real armor for holding position (110E3, Maus etc.), and for sure you could get last ToTT Strv - to enjoy camping:)

In my opinion, T57 at the moment is not good enough for tier 10-11 battles ( and tier 10-11 battles totally different than 7-8-9 btw),

but here is a tip for free ;) - T54e1 became a dark horse of tier 9, you should get it and try, it’s really good now after rebalancing (made it a heavy tank and add a good top gun), in tier 7-8-9 or 8-9 you will be a really “ big daddy”;)

I sold 57 long time ago, but now I’ll buy 54e1:)

Good luck on battlefield and have a loyal RNG;)

Missions up to Tier X

For two weeks, you'll have something to fight for every day! This includes x5 XP per vehicle every day, Crew XP bonuses, and other significant rewards to help you reach Tier X. You can find more information about the missions below:

 

Or, is it a full month event ?

 

PS: If you are going to correct it, provide an errata.

It is a full month and it will overlap with the next one which starts at the 20'iest.

 

So there will be two top of the tree from the 20'iest and forward... well at least till they change it again.

The T57 in random battles is slow its not a flanker at all its a slow ponderous Heavy with a great auto loader gun with almost zero armour any T9/ T10 will Pen the turret easily 2 big weak spots lower left and right so bounce nothing, enemy shoots you drive in unload 2 or 3 shots or 4 (and take 1 in return, retreat and repeat

 

it was great 5 years ago now in 2020 its well out of date with WG power meta creep ~ example the new the Italy T10 auto-reloader is far better in so many ways speed and quick to relocate is how WOT is now in 2020 if you don't have 300mm+ Turret armour and good Speed at same time in a frankly OP HT that see's T8's  (aka various Soviet HT line's

I only have this line up until T20, but it looks like I shouldn't get any further. All three tanks (T69, T54E1, T57 heavy) seem to be quite inferior compared to many peers. Nice to have an autoloader, but I already have several others.

Lazy TOTT Month for me.

Got the Tier 8 9 and 10 for both lines Its a pity in some ways the T57 didn't follow the T69 and T54E1 only improve the turret armour even more.

I get frequent bounces with the T69 turret and the tier 9 wasn't bad when it was a medium don't think I have played it yet since they made it a heavy.

Not played the T57 at all outside of a test server, just seems like they made the armour worse with each successive tier but didn't improve much else, I really would have liked an American version of the Krnvagn

 

I will most likely buy back the Charioteer and maybe even the Challenger.

I do like the Conway its got 2 great guns imo and the fast firing 120mm is just as good and in some ways better than the 5.5 inch.

The FV4005 stage 2 is far to much fun to ignore even if some games you only get off one shot but with it you one shotted a tier 10 tank

I was as confused as all you, but if you read the July Rundown again you get this:

https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/july-2020-sneak-peek/

 July 5 through August 5 & July 20 through August 20: Yes, we have once more adjusted the format of this beloved special. Based on your feedback, we will continue the two-tanks-per-month format, but every special now lasts for a full month! Plenty of options and plenty of time to reach the top! Kicking off the updated format is the American  Xa67_t57_58_icon.svgT57 Heavy Tank , followed by the British tank destroyer  Xgb83_fv4005_icon.svgFV4005 Stage II .

 

Not everyone will have read this though or just skimmed to see the tanks. They really should have stated this in the actual TotT post that we're not losing out

From USA tech-tree is point grind E3 line, other is collection tanks (arty do not know, I no play arty)

E5 was good, previously used in CW and skirmish, now there is a collection tank. I sold E5, sold E4

and T57 I will not grind, I don't collect tanks.

T57 is a nice tank.. even today but it is massively out of date compared to similar tanks such as Emil II / Kranvagn etc..

You want to play this tank as support rather than at the frontline being aggressive, wait for chances but don't overextend or your paper armour and mediocre pen will curse you.

Again with the traditional misleading and even blatant lies that are the trademark of WG.

The sloped armor will bounce shells less often than a light tank will.

It is rather slow so getting into favorable positions will almost be impossible.

At least it has 4 shells in the clip, not like the nerfed Swedish heavies, giving it an extra chance to do damage.

Pen, gun handling are not the worst but as it will face really armored pay to win premiums and over armored polish and rushian tanks it will have a lot of trouble.

So they have changed it back to a full month for each tank and are running 2 tanks at the same time but the start will be staggered.

I expect a new TOTT tank to be announced as starting just after the T57 one ends on the 5th of August and to keep going in this way.

Right now we have just one tank and one set of missions and discounts after the 5th there will be two.

Here is a suggestion for Tot:

 

Wargaming chooses 2 tanks and community choose 1 like on the Rusky server. 

 

That way we could have 3 branches per month, why not. 

1 start of the 5th 

2 start on 12th 

3 Start on 20 in the month. 

 

Just to make sure that one tank can not be picked up again after being on Tot you make a ban for 3 months. 

 

Think about it.
