  1. Fuck arty. One of the first top tier games i've had all night while grinding credits. T26E5 on Failinovka, north spawn 3/5/7. I get up to the hill, get penned by fucking everything and get artied to shit the whole time. BALANCE DA

  2. Hmm, may be better than i expected. Trying to deal with super heavies with gold pen just looks like a pain though. I just thought the 705s looked cool and kinda different, although I haven't even bought the IS to start putting xp on it for the update. Finished my 430 grind last night, can't wait for the 430u. I still have an IS-2 Berlin crew that hasn't been used at all, probably going to either throw them in the IS with this weekends discount or start running them through my prems. I'm a bit burnt out on rear turrets having just done A-44 to 430 in a week and finishing up the VK B to be able to get the Pz 7 on discount.
  3. May i ask why? I didn't look too closely at them all but it looked like one of the weakest to me.
  4. Tier 8 looks like it'll be the free xp sink of the line unless it gets changed. 212 base pen and 240 on APCR, ew. And of course the gun isnt used on anything else. The 9 & 10 appear to be the usual RUSHA balancing.
  5. Buy the 4503 on sale or get the Lowe back through support? Suppose i could always do both.

      Get the Lowe back and fuck the 4503. It's just average trash.

    2. mostlyhybrid


      it's also hideously overpriced for a meh T7 premium

    3. skyf24


      Works for me.

  6. Why are the 416 and 430 II guns so derpy? The 416 felt like it missed easy shots and same thing on the 430 II.

      better accuracy and RoF vs higher AP pen? on a tank that spams HEAT anyway......


    3. Hellsfog


      I was recently having a conversation about which gun to use on the 430v2. The stock gun is better if you are spamming heat, which I hate doing because of cost. On the other hand does +19mm pen on the base round justify the slightly worse reload and gun handling? I'm on the fence. 

    4. skyf24


      stock gun. will +18 pen make a difference? maybe on the occasional -25% rng roll, otherwise nah. It's just so incredibly infuriating to have such poor base pen, meh alpha, and then such an expensive AP round. FFS my revalorise has 1 less pen and 70 more damage for half the price.


  7. Sold: 'Object 416' successfully sold. Received credits:  1,344,740. Spent gold:  20. 


    Good riddance.

      Yeah I kind of hated that tank too. Had some good games but too many very average because it was so awkward to play.

      Also, this was my best game in it.

      Edited cause it had the previous post as well.

      I kept mine when I got the Obj 430 II. Really like the invisible pancake.

  8. Gonna be honest, i'm really not feeling this tank. Way too niche IMO. Gun performs like a potato, and while the heat rounds are great, they have to actually hit. I'd much rather play almost any other tier 8, barring the 65t and TVP.
  9. So i'm a shmuck and got it. I love lend lease stuff and like Shermans, so why not. Um. It's pretty bad. th elack of mobility is really noticeable, and i forgot how much i fucking hated the 76mm M1 series of weapons. Might make for an easy 3 mark if nothing else...
  10. Plus side: I got a T26E5 from the NY boxes. Downside: Tier 8 MM still fucking blows.

  11. Operation: Grind like mad for the Obj 430 before the patch is a go. Once I get past the A-44 it should be pretty easy... I hope.

      Ok i see it now.  Thanks.

      You might get a double refund on the su-122-54 if you have the su-122-54 and 263 in your garage.

      Ok, I'd like to thank the folks who recommended the 416/430 II. The 416 was meh for me. I don't think I'm playing it quite right, but I had some good game. First game in the 430 II though got a triple double: 2k damage, 2k spotted, 2k blocked. It has armor! I'm so happy.

  12. jesus fucking christ, arty is just as bad as it always has been. the aim times shouldve been left the same, fucking bullshit

    1. waga100


      moving is basically irrelevant now at least you don't get 1 shot i guess

  13. Buff the gun handling overall along with mobility. Would go a long way towards helping it, while maybe reducing the 120mm xp as well.
  14. Skipped the 65T (thanks WG for the free xp conversion bonus) and wow. this tank is fantastic. I've never owned a Conqueror, and i don't feel a need to.
  15. FFS why does the Skorpion have a smuch hp as the T28 prot? I can haz Ferdinand hp pls?

    1. FavreFan4ever


      SU-100M1, AMX Canon 105, and AMX AC48 would kill for 1150hp.

    2. skyf24


      My issue with the Prot is that it's meant to basically be a heavy td, similar to T28/T95, and it has neither the armor nor hp to do that.
