  1. Noted; however, this shows that the 50TP Proto does not have the type of flexibility necessary to be a good tank. The tank seems like some sort of slow 2nd line support heavium. Perhaps it's a playstyle I'm just not familiar with. I will give'r another go with some of these recommendations.
  2. Simply put: not good after 1 hr, never bounced a hull shot from front only bounced a few off turret, but everything pen'd the roof side scraping ok, but must minimize exposure of drivers casement pen is poor, especially given accuracy gun depression is nice (more to side than front, none to rear) bottomline: would drive almost any other T8 heavy over this
  3. yup; RIP boosting, but, better arty cover
  4. Saw 3 matches on Lakeville yesterday where successful teams pushed IS7, Maus & E100's center road; but, there was no arty
  5. I simply play the middle. Poking around, keeping an eye on all the radial alleys in order to watch for enemy flanking moves (or friendly opportunities for the same), as well as, taking cheap shots (AKA free damages) at tanks focused on those heavies & mediums you speak of. It's slow and usually boring/dangerous, but useful for the team.
  6. Yes, those are strong positions. If not taken early, tends to put teams on their heels.

Seriously.....no
  8. This Turn on 'turbo mode' to get where you need to quickly, then turn off.
  9. Don't sweat it. Be happy that you're learning to deal more damage. As others have alluded, and I will echo: 1) At some point you will start realizing better when you really need to run, and when you should stay. 2) I found mine #'s to swing like a pendulum between WR & WN8 as stats improved over time.
  10. Gun handling of Emil I is...poor. More trolly than an STB. This coupled with meh pen, and already low DPM makes for an even more trolly tank. I think the play style is best described as similar to the T57 heavy. This all said, I am having fun in it.
  11. 1) I suck 2) I've only played a few games in it but is the fact that the standard round is APCR, and hence gets reduced normalization, that I am struggling to pen with this thing...?
