I've been loving the t1heavy and the play style seems to suit me. How much, if any, difference in play style will the m6 be? I'm planning to upskill a crew in the t14 to make the jump easier, but would appreciate knowing what to expect otherwise.

 

Cheers

Do you actually mean the T1 heavy, instead of the T14?

 

Anyway, the big difference between the T1 Heavy and the M6 is the improved gun offerings. Go with the 90mm. Try to pen 5 shots for full roll every game. Engage on lumpy/sloped terrain when possible. Be out on the front line, not getting shot, but claiming the key positions. You know, more of the same good things you're supposed to do in the T1 heavy.

Also, don't overtrain crews. Turn that crew training into Repairs. You'll be glad you did.

Yeah, typo. I was hoping that was the answer, thanks.

No worries, I'll have repairs and BiA when I move that crew to the m6 (from the t14 - no typo here I'm using it as my american heavy trainer; for now at least). :playing:

 

And heh I think I just figured out what people mean by "overtraining".

T1 Heavy, contrary to the popular label of a "crap" tank by inexperienced players, is actually really REALLY good. It was the first tank that taught me how to properly angle and bounce shots (3300+ damage deflected in a tier 5 match once). Anyways, the M6 plays very similarly to the T1 (and they basically look like the same tank). There's 1 notable difference: the M6's lower hull armor is actually stronger, and it has a more powerful gun. It was a very enjoyable tank for me in my grind to the T29. Oh, and before going onto the T29, absolutely research all guns so that you can carry over the 90mm and avoid having to go through the atrocious 76mm grind. Good luck!

This tank ( like many.... ) doesn't really impress til you get the ( final research) 90mm. Sadly you are then, just in a rush to get the T29, instead of appreciating the difference the gun makes & how quickly the red team backs off when hit!

You will find the change from T1 Heavy to M6 easy & relatively painless...... Dreaming of the 90mm(?!)

Tool kit & repairs very handy & a premium tank crew trainer (mine is Ramm II & Mutant 6 )

 

Have fun.....

The M6 is a great tank. Currently own a fully researched T29 as well, but I must say I have more fun in my M6.

It's more mobile and the gun is great for it's tier. When top tier you can just sidescrape, careful not to overangle tho, and get the gun to work. Great damage, on a short reload, which means it melts T6 and below. It's ok for T7 & T8's. :P

It's all about the 90mm.

 

Horrible in reverse though!

Thanks, yeah I really enjoy my t1heavy. I get faster training in it than my t14  because I seem to be that much better in it. Maybe the t1heavy "spoiled" me for the t14. ;)
