Hello.


While everyone is talking about high tier cans, tier 8 to 10, I'd like to invite you on this thread to post about the low tier [Edited] (tier 1 to 6) that you enjoy the most. Either you love them for HE, or for their unique playstyle, of for their brokenness, I don't care, just let us know about your smaller toys.

 

While hate is bound to come in from certain types, don't feed the trolls.

i really dont play much at lower than tier 8, which i consider k8nd of a lowtier as well :D
But if you ask, only few prems, like cromwell b, t34-85m(very rarely), some e25 and 13 57 action, if i want to chill from tier 10.

T1E6 and Sexton 1 are hidden gems. The Sexton 1 is handsdown the most OP low tier tank no contest. Too bad equipment 2.0 will kinda ruin it since I don't think it can mount a rammer anymore. 

 

T1E6 has a really nice 5 round burst clip. 30 x 5. Has fantastic premium ammo too. 

 

T7 Combat Car due to it's hilariously large autocannon clip. 

 

BT-7A is also really fun due to the derp mystically having more HE pen than AP pen. Also accelerates from 0 to 51 really fast.

I like my T-150 and the new refurbished Covenanter.

IS-2S, Tiger1, BT-7A and T-34S are also on my most played mid-lower tiers.

T-34 with 57 mm ZiS-4 gun. 60/45 AP/APCR loadout. Binocs, optics, vents. 100 % camo on all crews. Beast :)

Love playing tier 6 - T34-85, Rudy, T34-85M - all fun to play -  Hellcat and Jackson are enjoyable too - and on the heavy side, T-150, KV85 and KV-2 with 107mm  :)

But.. but.. Sexton 1 is an arta!

 

Mother of lols, where do you get those unicorns from: T1E6, T7 Combat Car, BT-7A - when does WG sell them?

On those very rare occasions that I play low tiers I'd say the Boxtank and Brrtpard are the most fun for me.

Sexton 1 is an arty, and that's what makes it so OP. It also has disgusting AP rounds that can pen micro-mauses, PZ-IIJs and Pz S35 and Pz B4s with ease.

 

Yeah those tanks are some really old school gift tanks. The T1E6 and T7 CC must have been given out like 8 years ago lol. Only got them back from the VRT. The BT-7A was a lot more recent, like 3 or 4 years ago but it does appear in bundles sometimes.

I have a Sexton I. Never played it. Are you saying I should start playing it immediately? :)

I like some of them because they actually excisted and were used.

The Sexton ( and any premium tier 5 and below) that currently can mount a rammer will get the Progetto treatment after the patch - a reload buff as if a rammer was installed. So if anything, it'll get even better...

 

On topic: Hetzer/StuG 3B with the derp, KV-2.with the 107, Leopard with ramming setup and Pz 5/4 are my favourites if I want to fool around on lower tiers.

With the advent of Battle Pass and with my only Personal Missions now requiring tier VI and VII, I do play higher tiers most of the time these days.

 

But... there are days when I have simply had ENOUGH of higher tier stupidity where my ability to turn a losing battle around is, shall we say, less developed. 

 

I will, occasionally drop down to III, but these don't count for many missions, so if I need a "Top on damage" or "Top on experience" mission doing, I turn to the Marder 38T.

 

This was the other day... Now 16 this morning.

There's loads of good stuff in Tier 6 and below

Personally I like playing the various Tier 6 Panthers, as their guns will pen anything, the armour can be somewhat useful, and they are reasonably mobile.

Yes. Source: Was the #1 EU player about a year ago. Haven't played it much since. It's easy chill mode. Easy to farm Gore's and Stark's medals. Easy to get 8 kill games.

Really? Do you have a source on that? I'm feeling really, really sorry for newbies now.:teethhappy:

Pretty sure the tanks in the article are just a handful that'll be available for testing btw, since the article clearly says "all".
