Hello,

 

Hello, I couldn't help myself and bought Cromwell Berlin, Ts5, defender AND MUTANT

So many tanks coming to premium shop soon, but I only have enough money left in my budget for 2 more

 

what two out of these

 

Skop G

Defender  I bought this

TS5

Mutant 

Lancen C

 

now Lancen C in shop also, is this good?

 

which out of those should I buy?

 

 

I play all lines in the game apart form polish tanks so I have nice crews for all, I played patriot over 220 times in team battles so have good 4 skill crew for American heavies 

 

I mainly ask about fun rather than crew trainer :) 

 

I like hull down tanks, assault TDs, and heavies, lights too and love ebrs, arty is only tank I play for missions only I try to play every tank so I know how to counter them and so I can improve 

 

 

I think I will go for defender

 

still unsure about the other one

What crews do you have that can be moved into those tanks or do you plan to use them to grind a crew for their respective lines, do you have missions suited to those particular tanks, what kind of tank do you prefer to play and how do you play them?

 

Going off of your service record (well, off of wotlabs really) you haven't really played the American TDs or Heavies, so I'm unsure the state of your crews respectively for the TS-5/M6A2E1. Then there's the German TDs, of which your highest appears to be the Nashorn. The Defender stands out the best since you own the IS-7, so presumably has the best crew to offer.

get something Chinese,

T-34-3, 59-Patton, WZ-111...

 

Defender is god awful imo.

Skorpion is OK.

TS-5 can be a fun tank if you enjoy the playstyle.

don't know much about the mutant but it looks ugly.

 

WZ-120-1G FT would be an excellent choise if you ask me.

don't know much about the mutant but it looks ugly. - It's a weird sort of hulldown Heavy except it's super tall. You can only point your front at everything due to cheeks and weak side armour and flat on it's "only" 230-240mm basically, so Gold or higher tier stuff tends to laugh at you. It does have -10 And if you can use it, the upper hull becomes quite bloody strong, but it's so tall that it's not exactly common. Then you have a pretty bad gun and uhm.. yeah. I used it for a few blocking missions though, it's not common enough that people aren't always the wisest engaging you and I would just sit in dumb positions with the hull angled upwards to farm blocked damage.

The mutant has one massive design flaw, its turret is garbage if its not looking right at you.

If one dares to wiggle you can shoot the turret sides as if they are made out of wet paper.

I am rubbish in all of them

You seem to have similar game skills in the game to me (i.e. we are both pretty bad) so if I were you I would save money and not buy any because I think you will find it hard to get decent results in any of them.

TS-5 and Defender.

The two most forgiving tanks out of the lot.

 

Skorpion G and Mutant

The two most fun tanks out of the lot.

DE. that is true, the strong suit of it is the the armour but i HATE the gun. i would gladly give some of the armour away for better gun stats. thats why i prefer the 110 over it cuz it just has amazing gun compared to it. i actually hit things with it. the Defender is only good for some blocking missions but i dont use it if i need to do anything else.

SK. ye i know its popular but its not a overperformer imo, i understand why people like as its flexible, good gun, speed a turret. its just OK imo. then there is the WZ-120-1G FT that i like more.

but it all falls down to my own personal opinions. there are certain things i need from a tank.

@OP - didn't you open a thread yesterday about not enough premium tanks being in the premium shop?

And lo and behold, one day later there's suddenly too many of them there...

Anyway, the Skorp G is a really good tank. I suck major donkey balls in it tbh, but it's not the tank's fault.
