I decided to push up a few extra lines because I had the extra slots and more silver than I will ever spend.

 

Between the type 95, the ST vz. 39 and the Sav m/43 I don’t know which is worst.  Sweet baby Jesus this is painful.....

 

How the hell can a hetzer be on the same plain of existence at tier IV with this garbage?

 

pushing up to the type 34 wasn’t all that bad, but these other 3?  For the first time ever I want to quit.....

 

please tell me these get better at tier 5.....

The Type 95 becomes the O-i experimental, which is one of the strongest tier 5 tanks. The other two, not so much the tier 5's aren't great either.

 

The Swedish get good at tier 7 and the Czech get good at tier 6.

Yeah. I figured the OI was a beast. I fight them a lot and it is a handful depending on the tier.

Don’t know squat about the other 2 at tier 5.

The 95 and Sav are so bad it’s comical.

I hated the Japanese heavy line. The only exception is the tier v OI Exp. Loads more mobility than everything else that comes after it. I find the armour bounces more than I would expect. Top tier, I find it a beast.
The Czech line starts to get fun with the Skoda T24, but I really enjoyed the T25. The T-34-100 is ok, but the TVP VTU is a real disappointment for me. I hear the T50 and T50/51 are both fun.
The Ikv 103 was terribly painful. While it may have a big derp gun slow shell velocity, thin armor and being easily spotted frustrated the hell out of me for the entire tier. Good gun depression though. Grinding the Ikv 65 alt II right now. Finding it similar the the 103, but not quite as painful. Still painful, just not quite as much. I also have the Stark Strv S1 and I find it very situational.
Thats my input for what it's worth.

The Sav m/43 is fantastic at tier IV. Mobile, good accurate gun, it can deal with tier VI's easily provided it stays unspotted, but that's no different from any other tier IV TD. Just wait till you get the tier V TD, now that is rubbish.

If you can make this thing work you are a far better tanker than I will ever be.  The bloom, aim time, reload....God have mercy.

I thought it would play like the Hetzer....sadly no.

The O-I Experimental is easily one of the most OP tanks at tier 5 (the line is good through tier 7. Tier 8 is where they get pretty bad).

The Skoda T24 is bad. The gun has fantastic penetration and damage but the handling makes Russian guns look like sniper rifles. The Skoda T25 fixes all of this and is a vehicle I would like to buy back eventually.

The IKV 103 is pretty bad only because it's only ammo options on the top gun are HEAT. The rest of the line after it is really solid though. Definitely worth the grind.

I usually free xp my way through tanks like the Type 95.

When you can't hurt anything, and are a pin cushion, there's no need to play through them.

 

I started the Chinese TDs last night.

I abandon the Swede TD line at tier V, and the Chinese Heavies at the O-I.

The tier V Swedish TD is the worst tank i've ever used.

I’m saving all my free XP for the Sheridan otherwise I would.

I don’t want to push these too high.  I got lots of tier X I never play.  I may stay at the type 34 and the OI exp.

From what I am reading I guess I will be pushing the Swedish and Chez line to at least tier 6.

 For the Sav m/43 use the 7.5cm gun not the 10.5. Sure you are trading a ton of damage potential but the pen and reliability of the smaller gun more than makes up for it. Plays exactly like a Marder 38t then.

The Type 95 was painful for me too. Just finished it last night and unlocked the O-I Exp. In my first battle in that the batteries in my controller decided that the optimum time to die would be when I was right in front of a Captured KV-1...

I thought the AMX 40 was bad.....Jeeeeeeesus.

I am doing all 2 of those 3 lines as well. The Type 95 is painful but the O-I Exp seems to be very worth it. I have played three games in and have lost all three but I have done well in it surviving 2 of the 3. I find the ST vz. 39 to be an O.K. tank. I don't mind it much and have Elited it but waiting on training the crew's next Skill (and over trained) before moving up. On the Swedish line I am currently at the Lago. I find this tank to be pretty o.k. as well. Like the St vz. 39, I have elited it but I am just waiting to finish training my crew's next skill (and over trained) before moving on to the Tier V.

you are going to wish you could grind past the Ikv using the Sav but they do start to improve from VI on on the heavy line it's all gravy once you get the O-I but do stick with the derp gun on the O-Ni and O-Ho,the type 4 is a pain mainly due to speed as for the Czech 6&7 are good 8 sucks like a marsh in a vacuum  9&10 are very good.

im currently running up to tier Viii on the new Chinese  TD's and so far I'm at 5 and I'm going to put them on par with lower tier Swedes for suckiness no armour and gun handling that makes your balls crawl still at least they hit hard when they hit.

I’m wondering if I made a mistake going down the Sweed TD line and not the normal tanks.  I eventually want one of those siege mode TDs only because they are different.

 

I have 10-12 skill crews in my other lines.  Zero skill crews in these.  I’m sure that’s a factor too.  I will mostly likely stop at the OI exp and skoda tier 6.

Save that Scotch till you get through the IKV 103. Or drink it while you play it, it might help. Im almost far enough to free xp to the IKV 65 Alt III. But the UDES 03 is at tier VIII. Atleast that is what I keep telling myself.

If ever there was a tank to earn a Steel Wall in at low Tiers...

 

 

Now the Ikv 103, it's Reaper medals or you're a potato.  No middle ground.

I don’t mind the ST vz.39 so much now that it’s upgraded.  Fires fast, reasonably mobile, can actually pen stuff.  When low tier I can at least get spot assists and stuff.

I am UTTERLY useless in the 95.
