To be fair, Smylee played his way back when it was a tier 8, but with the 90mm when I faced him :doge: 

That leader-board is supposed to be just people with 30+ battles during September of 2017...

Would you rather only be able to play T49 and no other tank or have the T49 be the only tank you could never play again

I have a similar dilemma: do I grind all the way from tier 2 on my NA account to play chode with Crab and Dual or play the chode I already have on EU?

@Trobs and I tried to channel our inner chode$tarz tonight on Stalingrad

 

 

The first one is a celebration of gfycat increasing the length limit on gifs, so it's 25 seconds instead of 15 with no fast forwarding.

First, after a fairly lackluster opening for me, I try to save a platoonmate (he dies) and dive the batchat.  The t-54 ltwt is coming around to murder me but trobs senses butts and catches him in the ass as he tries to get into the square.  I face tank a Skorp G round and erase him.  Autoatimed, no excuse.

Then, I give up even more of my HP for centurion butts.  Autoaimed too, my excuse is that i was driving and wanted to survive but in reality it's just really hard to break bad habits

Some more teamwork to purge a 90mm heretic.  Feels good man.  Trobs got tracked on the way in, repaired faster than usual, and I had to swerve a little to avoid ruining his shot

since this is a heat round and I knew he wasn't looking at me I didn't autoaim this one, I just have free cam on.

and for the finale, a nice spitroast of a Spershing.

God that game was fun. Combined 8400?

I need to find my 5200 damage game and post some clips from that

It was a very good game.

I tried to keep in mind crab and dual's habit of always focusing fire, which we're hilariously bad at 90% of the time.  I think it paid off especially with the heretic removal duty and the follow up on the spershing at the end, so maybe we should get in that habit :megadoge:

I blame you for bad focusing.

Beautiful butt battle. First I was aiming at Scorpion but that enemy T49 gave me such a sweet opportunity to pen him. Then one shot trade with Emil and Leo PTA doing everything to let me inside of his butt. At the very end bat 25t leaving the battle with huge ka-boom.

We should lose this one but I happened. First blind shot at CDC was worth 682 dmg and cute E50 trying to sidescrap against derp. Stupid end of my T49 but It's me.

The proper way to conceptualize the T49 is having a gun with 3 distinct rounds:

350 alpha, 1050 dpm, 600mm+ pen

910 alpha, 2700 dpm, 76mm pen (except this never bounces, just turns into the round above!)

700 alpha, 2100 dpm, 152mm pen

If WG put out a LT with that first gun, everyone would cry "OMG OP", but instead the limpdick themselves with the 90mm!

It's why I always laugh when 90mm heretics say "but the 90mm is just so much more flexible" no fool it's literally the opposite

Again, really think it depends on teh player, while I wouldn't want to meet Crab/Dual or any of you guys in my 54LtWt, the number of T49's using the 152 who have no idea how to aim/use it is kinda funny.

I actually turned save replays on after a game in which a platoon of 2 T49 derps both rushed my LtWt, and managed to hit each other , one of those moments that make your night.

No the 90mm isn't going to turn a terrible player into a good one, but when fighting anything faster than a Maus, it does have a little better chance of them hitting someone with it.
