dunno how to put the question buttons on but...

The Machine or T57?

 

my preference is T57. My reasons:

  • more damage per shell 
  • the armour is ok
  • reload is better
  • i just seem to play it better

 

on the last point, I seem to over extend too often in The Machine. And when I do it just doesn’t have the firepower to hold it’s own. The T57 however does...

 

to me the advantages the Machine has do not seem to make it better than the T57.

 

thoughts?

ps: if you want to advise how to put the buttons on that would be great!

The T57 is kinda like the machine, or any other automaker in that you cant, or shouldn't over extend.

It's a good tank WITH SUPPORT. I'd say that's essential to playing it.

Never played the machine, so cant comment on that, but the T57 does have glaring weak points in its armour, like the turret cheeks. The collar can be penned quite easily too.

Like all autoloaders, you should have an escape route planned so you can reload.

Hope this little helps.

Speed is king... in my eyes. The Machine can get you out of a bad deployment, or can seek out opportunities, or help platoonmates, or defend the base. The Machine never has to get stuck in... 

 

A T57 has to commit... and if the numbers go wrong, RIP.

The machine has gun handling, the t57 doesn't.

 

You'll never be able to play a t57 like you could a machine, you can easily play the machine like a t57.

 

The t57 has better pen/more alpha, but once you get used to it the quicker ICR of the machine I find it far more preferable.  More damage in less time means you can trade far more effectively.

Agree entirely and it’s the thing I abuse the most when playing it. My problem with the speed is it’s too easy to over committed and due to map layout u have to run out in front of some guns show your flank and boom...

Yep gun handling is better but I find the T57 gun more effective. I have Mastery in both but find the T57 gives more consistent results.

i do run out of ammo inT57, never in the Machine
