  1. EDIT: I play a large variety of tanks, across many lines and tiers. I will be posting notable games almost on a nightly basis, depending on what tanks I am playing at that point in time. The games will range from good to very good, and they will be chock full of my usual mistakes, bad shooting skill, questionable decision making, and all-around potatoness, but hopefully they will prove instructive to some.

    My impressions of the Polish line (Wotlabs edition)

    Great review, and I generally agree. The tier 5 is capable, the tier 6 is terrible, the 7 only a bit better. The tier 8 is solid but is crippled by Tier 8 MM. I’m actually finding the T9 better tier for tier since (a) juicy 560 alpha at tier 9 and (b) tier 9 MM. I am not to the 10 yet, still 150k to go.

    I seem to be washed up

    I was with you in a game yesterday, and you rushed to a not-so-key spot early without support and without really a plan on what to do when you get there. Just slow it down, relearn the maps, and things will flow from there.

    Winged Hussars - your opinions?

    Finished the 6. So slow. Too slow. Give it a little speed and it's playable. Armor on the top turret is situationally useable. The alpha is nice, but the entire package is pretty bad.

    Winged Hussars - your opinions?

    The 5 is solid, speedy, with a decent gun. The middle gun has hilariously bad shell velocity though. The tier 6 is... bad so far. Slow. Not much armor. Good alpha with the best gun, but slow. Did I mention slow?

    I've been neglecting to post replays here for a bit, so here's a dump of a bunch of them

    M35 Marathon Megathread

    The bundle is $70 before discounts
  8. After having endured the AMX 65T, which is a bag of flaming poo that burned out, was rewarmed up and set on fire again, you get to the magnificence that is the AMX M4 51. This thing is GOOD. Decently mobile, with enough frontal armor to shrug off hits with sub-280 pen guns, and a punchy, well-handling 120 mm gun. I've been playing it ridiculously aggressively to fantastic effect. Hide from those who throw premium and from high pen guns, bully everything else. The downsides so far are paper-thin sides which lend themselves to @CraBeatOff and the Chode$starz, a gigantic turret which has to be kept pointed straight lest the back be exposed, and armor that is solid but can melt relatively fast once faced with 300+ pen rounds as it is difficult to angle and nigh-impossible to sidescrape. Nonetheless, enjoy the FRENCHIE POOSH:
  9. AW did that, and it was awful. High tiers became "hunt for the 3 pixels where you can pen"-- even though you would hit those spots reliably, finding those spots was a pain.
  10. I was grinding credits in my bought-after-IS5-trade M4 49, and the Defender population, while high, was uniformly terrible. Like get schooled 1v2 vs a M4 49 terrible.

    Obj705A - No one really plays this?

    Just got it yesterday, still trying it out
  12. The setup doesn't seem to be working properly. It's not pulling in all my tanks.

    I concur
  14. This Lorp Wormhole seems interesting. I'll have a look.

    Object 430 Appreciation and Boasting Thread

    The 430's main trick is hitting for 390 instead of 320. To do this, it trades mobility, gun handling, premium pen, gun depression...
  16. You'd probably have to contact the Russian devs. We in -G- had a similar situation, with _Lion and Poshybrid passing away. Poshy had a big streaming following so WG staff transferred his account to a memorial clan, and Lion is still in our clan. I feel you, and wish you the best in your attempts.
  17. High five for dad reflexes! (Will watch the games when I get back to my PC)
  18. Three suggestions: -- the US line is the only one you really need for the missions. The 53/55 rocks -- in some cases (especially for Stun tanks X times or duration of stun) I used the stock/smaller gun on the 53/55, giving up alpha for reload+accuracy thereby hitting tanks more frequently and adding up the stun time. -- Tier 10 grand battles are pretty good for arty missions

    AMX M4 mle. 54

    Short version: nope. Long version: with the 130mm it has horrible pen which will struggle vs superheavies in competitive play. With the 120 mm it has such terrible DPM that it is simply outclassed by the SuperConq and E5.
