I am trying to decide wether to stay with a medium tank and get the T20 or go heavy with the T29.  Any thoughts?

In my opinion the current game favors heavy tanks.

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

I like the T20 much more, despite the T29's overwhelming superiority, because I am the worst heavy tank driver in the game. I recommend the T29 first because even if you find you don't like it, you'll have researched the top gun and maybe the top engine (I forgot, though I'm pretty sure it's the top one) of the T20, making the grind much easier.

Depends on the type of player you are and your skill level. Boris is correct that Heavies are king atm.  They are the easiest and most forgiving to drive.  That said most heavy drivers are the stupidest of players, all amour and no sense....

 

The T20, I love but it is not for everyone and I am deffinately in the minority.  It has been power creeped and is a little slow with no amour. But the gun is very nice and it has really good gun drepresion. Its not a scout or a front line tank its a support ridge rider.

Ok thanks.  The tank that I have done best with is the M4 Jumbo, but Im still fairly new to the game.  I have the ARL 44 and am liking that one pretty good.

If you like the ARL 44, wait till you get the T29. Go hull down, and watch everything bounce. The thick, wide tracks of the T29 allow for some opportunities for sidescraping as well, should the situation call for it. Not the most mobile, but one of the strongest Tier 7 Heavies, for sure.

T20, on the other hand, suffers from a strong effect of powercreep. Would not recommend, especially for beginners.

Depends on your playing style, the t29 is a lot better, but the tier ten m48 patton is better than the t110e5, so while the t20 is worse, its line is better.

The T20 is a high skill tank. If you know how to use it, you will be rewarded. If you don't, you will be punished. Severely. If you want to go up a medium line, the Russians are probably best, but at tier 7, the Comet is excellent and would be good practice for developing your ridge fighting in a more forgiving tank than the T20.

 

Getting any line to tier 7 is not that much of an investment so I wouldn't necessarily choose a tier 7 tank on account of the their 10 tank in the line. Going above tier 7 in any line is an investment. That's when you want to become selective.

 

I copied this overview of the American heavies from an earlier post I made on a thread trying to help a guy who was struggling to grind the Sturer Emil as a new player.

 

The American heavies are solid but different by tiers:

 

T1 Heavy, M6 and the premium ducks - face the enemy. be hull down or hide behind short obstacles in these tall tanks. don't push too far, once someone can see your sides, your hp will drain quickly. that said the M6 is my go to tank for quickly completing a mastery mission.

T29 (and t34 premium) is a hull down monster, but the hull is weak and the turret has a hatch that accurate guns can pen - actually got hatch-hit by an Emil yesterday. . . so keep moving, even a little is fine, to protect the hatch.

T32 has a bit stronger hull so you can be more aggressive, and it has a rock solid turret.

M103 & e5- Major change - do not play these like the T32. Your turret is vulnerable. You need to move constantly to allow your curvy armor to bounce shots. While the T32 is well armored, the M103 is well armed. The advantage of this tank is its flexibility to help out as needed. The e5 has more solid armor and is reliable hull down, though only the T32 has a turret that it impenetrable all the way around. . . that's why its nicknamed the "cement head". The M103 and e5 are heaviums. Their armor is sometimes reliable, their mobility is mostly good, but they don't have excellence in either so you have to rely on smart play, hull down, and working with teammates to hold the line.

 

Of them all, the T29 has the highest average win rate on blitzstars. That is a sign that the tank is solid. It is strong enough to do well if you don' know what your are doing, but also has weaknesses that good skills can compensate for and result in improved success.

Thanks for the advice everyone!  I now have the credits to get the T29 (already had the xp)

T29.  Its a beast; great turret armor, hull down, and gun.

 

T32 is outstanding as well, though the gun can be slightly underwhelming at times.

 

M103 is an oversized medium that's honestly quite meh.  Nothing to see here.

 

E5 is OP.  Take the gun and speed of the M103 and slap them on a much more well armored platform.  

 

Go with the T29, the M48 line is honestly kind of brutal for a newer player.

So far Im having a hard time with the T29.  I still have another engine module to upgrade as well as the turret and gun.  It seems like the tank is very vulnerable except when facing the front and its hard to change position when I start getting hit from the side.

 

This is my first tier Vll tank though and skill level of other players seems to be a lot higher.

a lot of American tanks feel like that but when you get them to 100% crew and get all the parts they become one of the best trust me I have gone up that line to tier X
