I still need to get the SU-122-54. As it says on the top of the post, if someone can please send me a picture of a zero damage battle in that and the Obj 263, that would be much appreciated.
I'm pretty surprised too. They publicly announced that the Shinobi was broken and they're never selling it again, but here they are selling the Angry connor with an even higher coefficient.
Not at the moment. I might make one in the future
Great work in maintaining the list.
its both clear and concise.
i want to mention if ever you forget, that real world results are different,
I need to say it simply because it strikes me every single time.
Two examples below :
Panther M10 and E25 are two underpowered machines, they need all consumables to be competitive, and shoot loads of APCR. For some reason E25 will lose more games, has a lower coefficient, but will still return better credits
FCM has greater coefficient than the defender, but it will lose so many games that you will never make money. Besides, if you meet a defender (there is one in every game) he will dispose of you in three easy AP shots, while you will need 10 APCR and adrenaline, and probably some rations and it's not sure you get out alive. Add the repairs and the lost battles.
So every time its like FCM was made only to feed those defenders in free XP and free credits at your own expense.
Ah, yeah, it's fun to drive.
Real world results are thoroughly predictable with these numbers. Since both E25 and Panther M/10 have the same gun, assuming the same damage and consumable use, M/10 will make more credits. Period. Credits are determined with the equation in the post, not by RNG.
Also I find the FCM almost never needs APCR. 212mm pen is better than EVERY med and light in the tier, and more than enough to slice through a Defender frontally, and can 3x overmatch the roof weakspot. and the Defender needs to roll the maximum of 500 on each shot to one clip you. The odds of that are 1 in 8,000,000. That's like winning the lottery! FCM is still a terrible tank though, but I feel that it's good to educate the playerbase that things in this game are based on math, not superstition (KV-2 shots aside).
FCM can still make credits though. Based on player statistics, it grosses more than the JT88, Type 62, T-34-85 victory, Shinobi, SU-122-44. and a host of other tanks.
Meh never find T34 a fun tank anyway
the MOST CHARACTERLESS BORING tank at tier 8 premium WITH LEAST POTENTIAL AND JUST BAD
didn't regret selling it :/
nevah T34 again
I like the T34. It's been powercreeped heavily, but it's still good, especially with the gun handling buff. The turret is essentially invincible, especially if you point the gun up and wiggle. the gun has the best penetration of all tier VIII's excluding TDs, and a healthy 400 alpha with that excellent 10 degrees of gun depression.
For anyone interested, the Type 59 is the best for credit making, though it has less coefficient than the 4+ better coefficient tanks, it has 4x cheaper credits for shot than the Lowe and is a very easy tank to do a lot of damage and take none in.
*across all my battles:
I make 75-115k profit in credits Type 59
65-100k in Lowe (profit)
Chi Nu Kai about 80-100k
T34 about 55-95k
Super Pershing 75-110k (rarely higher than 100 but they do happen once every 15 games or so
I tried the ones I don't have on my account on a test account as recent as a week ago and in time for the 3.0 update so keep that in mind.
also, i tested these without any provisions or consumables other than a repair kit and six prem rounds without much usage of them (no camo too).
You gross ~74k on average in your Type 59 averaged over all games (Before repair, ammo, and consumable costs)
You gross ~85k on average in your Lowe
You don't even have a Chi-Nu-Kai...
You gross ~69k on average in your T34
And you don't have a Super Pershing
It's amazing what we can see with math right? Based on your stats, you're best off credit grinding in the Lowe! The point of this list is so that people don't have to use superstition and ballpark judgements like you have, and use the power of math to see the facts.
