Well the 'steel hunter' event is near...And i'm close to get a reward tank from it...can't decide which heavy should i pick...will not buy char-futur for sure...dont know why :D

 

Sooo used to playing hull-down tanks and can feel quiet comfortable in AE Phase I as well...(Played so many games with T32, T29, Caernarvon)

 

Obj. 777 looks good too...great upper plate...good turret...good alpha...and i dont have a good sidescraper tank...thats why this tank looks more viable to me right now :D

 

Which one is more mistake forgiving on the battlefield ? Since i'm an average player...the more forgiving one will be my choice at the end...

phase, because 777 is trash, i picked char as my first pick, if i will play steel hunter, its going to be phase, as there is zero point to pick 777.

depends what other rewards wg will give for steel hunter, if they are going to be anything less than last year, then not going to play.

Phase is a hulldown tank which can't sidescrape because of the bulge on the sides.

777 is a sidescraping tank that can't hulldown because of low gun depression and turret weak to gold.

 

More forgiving? I'd say 777

Better for carrying games? Probably Phase 

Most fun? Char

Hotel? Trivago! no wait...

I have both tanks

Ae phase 1 is a really nice  accurate tank with a strong turret and can work the  ridgelines.

and biggest + it dont has that retarted cupola the other american heavys have like T110e5

strong point of the tank are ridge lines and hilly area.maps.

weak point would be city maps if you are on himmelsdorf (and you in tier 10 game) dont go banana but hill.

 

 

OBJ 777 is a pure  city brawler  bounce a lot hit hard..

Got a strong turret and the  tracks also absorbs a lot , good side scraper.. 

I always angle the tank so the enemy dont have a straight shot on my lowerplate.

and with the tracks sticking out the front of the tank you can make the enemy shoot your track instead of lower plate

 

 

Weakpoints are

The gun is  inaccurate as hell even from upclose. and at range horrible .

gun depression can be  a problem on ridge lines  (its a citybrawler) but with some moving you can make it work a little.

I find it the tank  close to a lower 50tp (tier9 polish heavy) in playing style.

 

So my personal oppinion is which tank is better??? DEPENDS on the map you get.

Ae phase 1 is stronger than OBJ 777 on ridgelines and hilly terrain

OBJ 777 is stronger on flat terrain or citymaps or 1 on 1 close combat( flat terrain)

Im an average player so I asked some clan members during CW what they thought, the consensus was overwhelmingly to get the phase because its easier to play, quite forgiving and is a better all rounder than the 777 which aparently has some glaring limitations comparatively

 

I didnt go for the char futur 4 because everything seemed to indicate it had a high skill cap and was more suited to better players, but I have to admit I am loving the Udes 16 and have been getting consistently good results in it, so next time around if that is still the case I might go for it anyway as the tier 9 swede "mede" does seem to suit my style of play quite well even though Im not very good at the game

Phase best just from these 3, but it is worse than M103 (for me) :)

I'm thinking which M103 or AE Phase is better. Anyone have tried both?

while it might be closest comparison to phase - m103 cant play hull down at all.

Well, that may change with the next patch tho. As the M103 turret is getting buffed, especially the roof section.

Haven't got the 777 but I find a major drawback of the Phase is that it takes you away from the traditional heavy brawling spots, you need ridgelines to exploit its strength and those ridgelines tend to be in the open more 'medium' friendly flanks of the map. When you go to those areas you are often putting the 'heavy brawling' centre / flank at a big disadvantage by your absence, especially as tier 9 is often top tier and the opposition will generally have a more traditional brawling heavy that turns up in the city. 

Its almost better to be the Phase in a tier X game so when you go off to your ridgeline there are still higher tier heavies to make up for your absence. Thats what I've found anyway.

I don't have the AE but I have the 777 and I quite like it. The gun is okay and what people don't seem to mention is that the low profile makes it much harder for people to aim at the weakspots and you bounce loads. The AE by comparison is a great big box. Ultimately though, don't listen to anyone else just get whatever you think will suit you best, as there are pros and cons for all tanks.

It was several years since I played the m103 but got the AE a few month ago (last Frontlines) and Id say the AE Phase, by far. Just feels really stable.

 

Never tank more meta and havent tasted the powercreep as badly as techtree muricans do have.

None of them, char futur is among the best tier 9 tanks in the game! The 777 apparantly sucks and there is no reason ever to play the AE phase 1 if you have a S conq or Chief!

IF you're planning on getting concept 1b, then 777
But if not then AE, given that you've allready taken char futur because thats the only non trash tank they offer

jackpot777 is basically a defender a tier higher - can't really hit things, but can bounce alot. also shares the same dpm with that thing.

not sure why people call it bad, it's pretty decent tbh... however you may want to take the Phase I, since they are again buffing the T110E5.

 

but for me Phase is nothing special, it's just a less bad M103. so i will take the Chaffer.
