I need to know if the Japanese tanks are worth playing. my friend has a type 61 and he says he has lost over a million credits in a week. is this what happens to all of them?

Tier IX and X are costly. He may have lost a lot of credits. But did he do enough damage to gain credits? Did he get killed a lot and had to pay repairs? Did he use a lot of premium ammo and expensive consumables?

The tier V Chi Nu is a great tank in my opinion. Japanese tanks have poor armour but good guns and gun depression.

Well should I start it again or just leave it out?

P.s I found out he lost over half his battles played so I guess that might be the reason

These things are basicly light tanks but just not quick enough.

They need the best gun to perform well, then buy other moduals.

You need to play them very sneaky and use cover and the gun depression on ridges to stay alive.

I liked the Type 61 a little better then STB-1 due to matchmaking. But if you try and drive the Type 61 like a T-54 you will fail badly.

Im not sure how it works but with 75% crew mine where exploding everywhere, but as the crew improved I found a lot more shots bounced, yet I played them almost identically.

2-3-4-5 are op tanks

6 is weak

7 is weak but interesting

8 is good

9-10 still grinding for them.


If calling for help, follow me, I know how to die!!

Type 61 doesn't make much in the way of credits, but its on par with the rest of the tier 9's. Normally make a small profit though. My last game was 2nd class mastery and 3.5k damage, made 18k net profit on a premium account, 55k gross. Part of the problem is getting shot, because it always does damage, unlike some meds which will bounce a shot or two. Don't spam gold or you'll throw credits away.

Stb-1 is the best all round medium tank in Blitz to this date period. Best gundepression ingame, great turret (inferior compared to soviets), nice gun (pretty high dpm), ok mobility (better than fv)
