Probably because they have a more stable platform or some such. Or because they need an advantage over the tanks in this regard. The TDs often have a slightly better rate of fire as well.
Eh, I can live with that. Its also not very realistic, tech wise. Like putting a 57mm gun into an AT-1 chassis (which was a Komsomolets tractor mounting a short barrel 75 iirc) would have blown the back hatch out with the recoil.
Well, the KV-1 is probably a good one to learn in. At tier 5 it's a bit of a monster, especially when you're facing tier 4 tanks.
I have several tracks going at the moment. I pretty much gave up on the medium tank tree and was pursuing the heavy tank one, but I think I will switch to TD because it more closely matches my playing style. Still darn awkward in cities, though.
Maybe you will maybe you wont, but I find out a go from style to style...I get bored one evening with being a scout, so I go arty.. yada yada... I have a medium tank I like most, and play the most (M4). I have a light tank I like best (M5). I have two-three arty units depending on what tier I'm interested in that day. My favorite TD is tier II T18 (almost impossible to destroy from head on in low tier games) and Hetzer. Hetzer is very powerful in tiers within it's tier, but anything above, it struggles. MS-1 is a very fun tank to play. Lower tier games just seem to be more enjoyable.
I am on the same page with you on your analysis of my coment about low tier vs high tier...you went more in depth and said it better, but we're basically on the same page.
To be honest, I'm in no hurry to get to the higher tiers. A friend an I were playing as a platoon yesterday and for some reason we )at levels 2 and 3) kept getting put into games with levels 5-8. I completely agree that the gameplay is completely different. 3 and 4 seems to be where its at. Now I just need to train up mu crew.
Lower tier tanks are put in high tier games as scouts. Not fun sometimes.
I just looked last night, I have survived 6 of 60 games in my M5..however, I have scored a lot of exp and money with it. You get points/exp for scouting units, units you've scouted that are destroyed by team members, and of course, damage you cause. The M5 has a howitzer that is surprisingly powerful for a light tank, and you can surprise enemies that think you're a punny scout. One ram and shot to mostly any arty unit from tier five or lower usually results in a kill and living to tell about it.
I tend to play fast paced, don't like to sit alot, and play fast tanks...so I die more often then I kill. I think in 750 games, I have 500 kills.. appx
