Have you guys tried Gaijin's WAR THUNDER? Free to play, very awesome, but more historically-minded match ups than WoT.

THE SHADOW KNOWS, that the type 61 was a terrible grind.

You need to play it more like a TD then a medium tank. Accept the fact that everyone is going to penetrate your armour. By using the 105 and using it as sniping make the tank work well. The worst tank on the Japanese line is the Chi-Ri.

I play both - I think WT is a better "sim" particularly in the most realistic mode, but WoT is sometimes a better game

I fell off the WOT wagon pretty hard. Have not logged in for a while. Thanks Obama...

I play British tanks and am working through them all.

I also play the free tanks given.

My favourites by far are the Tier 2 Cruiser III and the Tier 4 Matilda, the latter being one of the best vehicles in the game.
I have a Cromwell, and while I respect its ability, I don't handle it well at all, being a tad too impatient for this game.

For my artillery I have stuck with the Bishop and will progress no further, for everything else I will play through to Tier 10 eventually, but I keep some tanks behind as I progress.
"Razorworms are just Mother Natures way of reminding you why it is important to man the walls." - True, but: PHR and UCM don't deploy Razorworms, and Scourge don't have lots of secondary machine gun mounts looking for target.
