  1. BC 25t AP, or AMX 30 first, halp! I can't decide between the 2 for shit. I've always been a batchat player, and the bc seems less painful stock as well, but I kinda wanna try the amx 30s as well, credit spam isn't an issue, exp is though.

      Actually just after posting this, I decided that getting the amx would be more sensible, since getting the gun on it will eliminate 80% of the stock grind on the bc.

    I kinda miss it, now I get bored pretty quickly after I die, that means I have to exit the battle which sucks when I'm waiting for the tank.
  3. Shooting through tanks, now in HD! Srsly, I thought this 3yr old bug would be gone by now...

    The return of Province

    Nice, finally a map where I can lose 60% of my health to camping tds after peeking, then sit behind a moderately tall building while clickers slowly splash all my remaining hp away, can't wait to play it!
  5. Hey, I'm a casual returning player as well, I'm not nearly as active as I used to be as I just occasionally sit down for an hour or two when I have the time. I'm almost always up for tier8s, but atm I have a tier 6 stock arl as well. Also I'm rusty af, and 99% of the games were solo, so my stats are pretty fucked, if you don't mind that, just hit me up whenever you'd like to platoon and I'm online.
  6. Regarding your comments about rev

    45 minutes ago, GamerDaPro said:

    I haven't found the rev's role out yet really. It's too slow to be anywhere needed, its agility is alright, but the 40kph top speed is really limiting. So it can't get where damage is needed quickly. It cannot make situations on its own either, because of the non-existent armor, so right now I have a tank that can't get to situations quickly enough to help, and isn't capable of creating situations either.

    With the t-34-3, I could get to spots quickly,  and I was pretty much able to run away as well when it was necessary. I could also spot at the start of the matches due to the pretty good camo. I could hardly ever snipe with it though, as the gun was shit for it, but it wasn't needed because I could just get close and then run away. And if there was no one to support, I could easily just start brawling somewhere on my own, the turret was really good, even the hull armor was usable sometimes, but I pretty much became a tough turret with a 390 alpha gun when it was necessary. What I'm saying is that the t-34-3 was ALWAYS usable somewhere, and I could almost always carry battles with it. I had no trouble with the penetration due to the tank's nature, I could easily maintain ~2,1k DPG, and I even platooned with regular t8s (HEAT spam was necessary then though). And that tank only got better afaik, as I only played it before the buff. Compare the revalorisé to it, what does it have? Yeah, a gun, but nothing else.

    Anyway I don't wanna hijack this thread with the rev anymore, mention me somewhere else or pm if anyone wants to reply to this.

    You are overexaggerating about t34-3 being always usable. If you are pushed by heavies - you were screwed most of the time. If you had to snipe - you were screwed, if you had to dpm out of a situation - you were screwed, if it was a hill poking fight - you were screwed. Not saying it's bad it simply wasn't as universal as you said. It was simply a worse version of wz111 since it was worse at brawling because of worse handling and hull and hp. 

    As for m4 rev - yeah it's a support tank but a bloody good one. You just need to read the map and forecast enemy plays better instead of going to a place and counting on armor and top speed to save you from mistakes.

      Sorry about the late reply, I kinda forgot about this forum.

      I've never played the wz-111, so I can't comment about that, however I'm sure you couldn't do two things in the wz-111: Scout, and circle/sidehug slow heavies.

      What you're saying about sniping is true, however I don't remember doing that a lot, I was spotting a lot more rather than sniping. I remember getting the 3rd mark in a 1,2k-ish dmg game, with 3k+ spotted.

      Also I actually loved brawling in the t-34-3, so getting rushed by heavies was my thing. I never resorted to out DPMing stuff, because that's not how the tank is played, and I loved hill fights thanks to the strong turret, and good alpha. The bad depression wasn't a problem after the first 10-20 battles with the tank, and I haven't played the tank after the buff, so it's even less of a problem now I believe.

      Anyway, the t-34-3 was my go-to carry tank I could pretty much always dominate with. I could bully tier8s and lower in it, and outplay tier9-10s as well. It's probably because of my playstyle or something, but the m4 rev is really far from that bully/carry potential for me.

      Also, I bought the lorr 40t as well, and I'm enjoying the hell out of it.

      1. Wz111 can scout as well as the 34-3 - They have the same view range. Though yeah it is a bit worse in those rare situations when you find a super slow heavy that can be circled by a slow medium (34-3 traverse is meh)

      2. wz111 has everything you say the 34-3 has outside of traverse. It has only 0.8worse hp/t and only 0.1 worse ground resistances with same top speed so in 80% of the situations mobility is the same

      3. As for advantages - stronger turret so no lolpens when someone hits your cheeks, stronger hull and strong LFP so lower tiers can't pen you instead of you having to hide your hull. Higher dpm, no gun elevation problems so people can't fuck you by being over you, more shells (so if you carry a lot of heat you will not run out of AP on a long game) stronger sides by 40mm (lol), 250 more hp, 20more ammorack hp. 

       

      So basically wz111 is a better 34-3. The only advantage the 34-3 has is traverse. 

       

      As for m4rev - yeah it's a support tank. It can't bully but saying it's bad because of that is like saying TVP 50/51 is bad. You just have to play it differently and be more patient. Also it is less screwed when the enemy team has a lot of armor.

    Yeah, I ended up buying the revalorisé because it's cheaper and the lorr isn't available atm. I loved the t-34-3, and the revalorisé feels so shit compared to it. Well, at least I'm up for a challenge.

    Lorraine 40t Appreciation Thread

    I've been looking to get this tank sometime, but at the same time I'm looking at the revalorisé as well. Is it worth to wait for a lorr 40t sale, and is it worth the slighly higher price? It does seem more fun due to the autoloader and the speed, but at the same time almost everyone ranks the revalorisé higher from what I saw. Help me decide between the two, crew training doesn't matter much (so I don't mind losing a crew memeber for the 30b), only credits, and how fun the tank is, also probably the carry potential as well. Also nah, I'm not going to get both, I feel gulilty for buying even a single premium.
  10. The other thread I posted in was probably a duplicate one, so pasting my post here:

    WG is going through with the Obj. 263 changes

    Wow, 2 years after I stopped playing I just randomly clicked on a thread saying how WG still fucks the game up. I seriously wonder how this game is still alive with that management. That TD line always sucked, with the only decent tank being the 263 (and the 122-54 as well to some extent), and they finally managed to change both that didn't need changes at all.

    Well... I can't say I disagree with that, can I?

    To play aggressively, or not to play aggressively

    ohai! barely, but yeah
  15. GamerDaPro

    To play aggressively, or not to play aggressively

    Being overly aggressive will hurt your wn8 and WR as well, even though you can always dish out some dmg before you die, I doubt you could reach 3,5k-4k wn8 if you're too aggressive. However I've found that being aggressive can win a lot of games, sometimes someone's gotta spot the camping TDs, and someone has to lead the push if you outnumber a group of enemies. While these might hurt your wn8 a bit (the first one to push usually dies/loses shitload of hp), your pubbies are likely to snowball into a victory. So playing aggressively usually pays off, as long as you do it somewhat wisely, mind you, suiciding and playing aggressively aren't the same. I've always been an aggressive player (both ingame and in chat ), no matter the tank I was in (probably this is why I sucked at TDs), 4k DPG surely looks nice, but where's the fun in redline sniping? I was an "in yo face" batchat player, and still maintained 3,1k DPG, and 66% WR with it over 1k games. tl;dr: I would be as aggressive as I can, just make sure that dying is worth it.
