What is the best stock gun to use?, what should I research first?, and what equipment should I run?

I don't have a good record on it, but it is fun to play. You'll find that you will not have much gun depression when shooting from your side, so it is mostly from the front. Sometimes you will have to fire from the rear. It makes things pretty interesting. Have fun. 

 

Stock gun? No. Max out.

I'd probably use the stock 12,8cm for the stock grind (if you're playing with 75% crew; if u golded the crew use the 15cm), then research the top 15cm first. After that, research the tracks, then engine, then top 12,8cm.

 

As for how to play it, when maxed, I'd play it kind of like a medium tank with a huge gun. You can play passive in the early game, and then later just drive around and smack people with the giant gun. 

 

For equipment I run rammer, defense system, camo net, GLD, extra HP, engine boost, and vert stab (although refined gun is also a good pick)

with big derp gun aim for penning 4 shots at least per battle.

with 12.8 gun just do your best and at least get off 6-8 shots before you die.

Tds are only Tds if you are able to pen shots and do damage ... every second you sit away from front, reds will eat your allies and give you that much less time to react.

Support the front lines from distance in any way possible.
Good luck mate

Agree. If you bounce off shots with a TD, your WR will drastically plummet. Even after over 30K games I just bounced a shell off a E100 that was out for my toon player. Fortunately for us the E100 decided to fire at me, and lucky for me he did not use HE lol

Play it like the deserving god like tank the WT is, aggressive. Thank god Posit1ve said it; like a second line medium. It’s mobile, has (albeit wonky) gun depression so get out there and keep mashing that fire button till the barrel melts.

Get handy switching between shells and driving with reverse controls, and most importantly have fun. WT > grille

15cm derp gun aim for weakness for HE for example another waffenträger or the top of the T30 cupola if your lucky . Be aware the enemy want to HE you to and you might damage yourself from obstacles

 

12.8cm shoot fast and is good dpm so sneaky good against enemy med if 1v1
