Does anyone prefer turret-less to turreted? Isn't turretless always a disadvantage? Think I'll go to the Hellcat.

 

can't say I do an is why I always go the e4 line, but their is the occasional non turreted td i like such as, the su-100y, t28 htc, isu-130, and an exceptionally new French td on pc that hasn't mad it's way here yet.

Without a doubt I like turreted better. 

A lot more versatile. 

 

My my vote for tier 6 is hellcat. 

If Achilles had more gun depression it would be a contender.

I prefer turreted. To clarify, I think the non-turreted TD's are cool, but I have trouble jockeying them about to get into firing position. The turreted TD's are easier to keep hidden while delivering punishment. Besides that, the other big issue is crew skills/perks. When I decided to give the American TD's a try, I placed my crews with 5 and 6 skills/perks (earned from playing mediums), and spent the gold to swap the medium skills over to TD specific skills (camouflage, silent driving, green thumb, situational awareness, muffled shot, and recon). Also, doing the Plaguebringer mercenaries contract (a very good TD) re-enforces the most successful play-style; remain patiently hidden and let the match develop while providing overwatch for teammates.

Hellcat and dicker max. Hellcat for obvious reasons and the max because a lot of people dont know what it is. 300ish damage a shot will make even tier 8's back off. And its view range is great. Its only downside ware urban maps.
“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

The tank doesn't make the tanker, but the tanker makes the tank good. Save that bit of advice for a rainy day.:sceptic:

A slow TD without a turret can be tough to aim and set up from the circle of death. One needs to be learned how to play them especially with current increase in lights per match. Best to have a platoon mate in medium/heavy working with you while covering your butt from the circle of death. In the right TD, your partner can move you faster and use you for armor for protection. You are not the tip of the sword in most cases, you play more of a support role, especially with slow reload. Inaccurate guns can make these TD's frustrating. But some TD"S are fast and can get around pretty good plus reload quickly.

Not really. A lot of people ask what tank is great only to find they don't like it because it doesn't fit their style of play.

I prefer turreted for flexibility in TDs. Something like the Hellcat is the pinnacle for me, fast, sneaky and good gun. The Jackson / Plaguebringer is slower and a bit more armoured and can do well for ridge fighting because the gun mantlet can be quite effective when hull down. I see the Hellcat as bit more flexible because of the mobility and can scout when needed,. 

 

For turretless I really like the Nashorn. Great gun, wide traverse and still mobile. It did have amazing view range but got nerfed, but it's still good. 

 

Just n idea, but I would recommend trying the Boilermaker as a flexible TD / Medium. It has a TD style gun, but is generally more flexible and less map dependant than true TDs can be, but it can give you great ideas of other things to try with your actual TDs. I hope it helps.and.good luck.

Nobody likes the AT8? Don’t get me wrong I am a Hellcat disciple myself but I find it curious that nobody even mentioned the British AT...It’s the opposite of the kitty: slow, heavily armoured and non-turreted but one can pull off amazing games in it...

Gotta go w/ my premium "fat max". Puts big holes in every red you go against. Decent camo, not great gun depression, but you get to yell " you just got Dickered!!" every time you finish a red.

Hellcat/Jackson/Plaugebringer are all similar.  Turret usually beats non turret.

no mention of the WZ-131?

Jp IV may have that crazy DPM, but the pen on the 88 makes it unreliable. The wizzer has wayyyy better pen with punchier alpha, CoD proof traverse and goes like the proverbial stuff off a shovel.

Depends on your play style.  If you like turrets Hellcat is an Easy call.  I have played them all and marked several of them but I really like the Nashprn and SU 100.  If you do Merc contracts the Plaguebringer has a turret and is similar play to the Hellcat.

 

+1^. Nashorn if you like traditional/sniper non-turreted style of play. Hellcat for run-n-gun turreted play style. i like to snipe, but it's tougher to do now than when the game was new. loved setting up shop on the southern spawn of South Coast & have mediums & lights screen out in front of me. fully researched Nashorn can hit past it's range. enjoyed damaging higher tier mediums & heavies & they never see you. even if they saw the tracers, couldn't spot or engage you. :)

SU-100, that thing is like a mini IS with better gun handling.
