    Spotgetto 65 3-mark completed. Used a bounty LNES + bond optics + slotted CVS build AND a bounty LNES, bond vstab, bond vents build. Pretty grand way to enjoy the tank. It gets OVER 40% camo on the move once you max out the Field Modifications, plus you get 527 view range. And the gun is slow to aim, but accurate enough to scavenge. On maps where there's too many LTs or it's brawl mode then swap to the vstab build and play as normal (except you're really strong at clean-up because 41% camo moving and 482 VR). Not expensive either, because it's a pain to switch to HEAT.

      I was late on the uploads but the replays are in the Prog 65 thread in the Italian subforum.

  3. Standard B 3 marked with a meh 4 skill crew (no recon is slumming) and merely bounty optics and vents. It's not as good as the Char or Kunze and has to pay for its repair kits - so I'll probably let it rust in the garage.

    Prog 65 is cheaper to run than the Bat25t because it takes too much time to switch to HEAT! Also a wildly better sniper without gun mods - and no incentive to take half assed follow up shots!

    French and Italian MTs massive winners from field mods.

      @Snoregasm2 I posted my T49 ones but maybe not the others. I generally take a mod at each level with a few exceptions. Anything that increases camo gets taken. In most cases taking 3% VR for -2kph forward speed is taken - at least for the French and Italians.

      Breech tweaking vs Aiming gears is an interesting one. For the Char4 and Prog 65 and Standard B i choose the dpm increase. For the Bat25t i choose the burst improvements. 90 dpm for far better follow up shots? Takes alot of minutes to equal even 1 extra pen due to gun handling.

      The 3% dispersion vs 2% acc tradeoff is another interesting one. It's NOT for turret or rotation dispersion as modeled by tanks.gg but only movement dispersion. It amounts generally to 0.01 more bloom for 0.01 more accuracy. I usually chose the latter or nothing at all.

  4. LTs are dead. Long live vision. RIP everything not named EBR 105, EBR 75, T49 or Manticore. The Bat 25t, Prog 65, Leo1, Kunze, Char, Bourrasque and Prog 46 have made LTs pointless.

      @graukatze Fun is a factor. But also because dual config patches the weaknesses. If you get Prok stealth up. If you get Ensk gun up and shoot butts for 700 with HEAT or burst softs for 910. The gun handling was significantly buffed in the patch that changed HE and HE shells penning tracks makes picking on softs easier. Generally they made the T49 gun very bad at splashing armor but very good at penning - through a combo of the shell mechanics changes, the handling and accuracy buff and the field mods you can deploy to further develop those characteristics. Plus the intuition changes mean you can always have the right shell to make the pen count. HEAT in 4s is enough to really pile into HT and MT and TD butts and sides.

      Plus you also get 3% more camo and can trade some excess view range for other stats (speed?). In any case it's very serviceable in both the shooter and spotter roles now. On raw output of course the MTs are better. A Kunze, Char4, BatAP or Standard B easily makes 4k combined dmg and assist in this paradigm - but the T49 puts out 3200 pretty consistently - makes credits. It's gonna miss some shots and lose some games but having 200% more giggles is worth 3% wins imo.

      I can't see a reason to run the T-100 @WhatTheSkara. Outclassed by too many other tanks. What little advantages it has in speed and camo are eroded by the other tanks field mod and equipment gains and cannot offset the absolute garbage tier VIII gun. 

      Yes it's fast and has good camo. But you can build a 140/907/K-91 to +40% camo, +520 VR with boosted CVS now. Give up 15 kph speed and gain...hundreds more dpm. 2 IAUs worth of accuracy. 50-100 pen depending on shell type. 30% more hitpoints. Armor.  Higher view range! And when you roll the dozen+ maps where scouting isn't really viable you swap to a 4k dpm vstab build and aren't completely gimped.

      It offers a profile that's still useful - while having a decent premium round and VR.

      So you might as well have MT hitpoints! Although in most any EBR matchup I'd just be gun specced and shooting at distances.

  10. Preliminary testing shows that the Progs 46 and 65 work pretty well with the Full Stealth meme builds. Is this heresy? I dunno - no one likes the Prog65 anymore anyways and I didn't like it even at peak power. The 2% camo that one gets at full field mod level pushes it's on the move camo to 40%  aka the same value as the T-100 prior to this patch. With 527 VR and slotted CVS. And the ability to swap to turbo/vstab/vents for your Himmels and other no vision maps. It'll probably let me enjoy 3 marking them. I'll test the Prog65 more in Ranked tonight.

  15. M46 Patton or Leo PTA for bond equipment and what setup?

    1. CraBeatOff

      CraBeatOff

      PTA surely. Bond vstab, bond rammer. Then when next patch hits you can choose 2 configs - I'd personally pick optics for 1 config and then either vents or turbo for the 2nd. Then on vision maps I'd have more tools for assistance but for Ensk, Himmels, Ruinberg the brawl setup would be used.

  16. borrasque has 40% camo stationary?? this cant be real

    1. CraBeatOff

      CraBeatOff

      When i can dual equip I'll run a full spot and stealth setup (bounty LNES, bond optics, CVS) and a full gun setup (bond vents, bond GLD, bounty IAU) and select between them based on maps and matchmaking. Ensk? Full gun. Redshire no LT? Full spots.

      I think GLD is possibly better than IRM - specifically for the follow-up shot. Does the account have bounty IAU? That might be the best piece for you.

  19. Have you tried a full stealth build on the T10 RHM? Curious as with purple optics it gets 537m VR and with LNES 42 camo. Not great but not dogshit.

      Yea - pubs will miss more shots on the Manti than the RhmPz. And there's a handful of bushes that are a little harder to use. I won't deny it. But for generalist play, randoms, platooned, with my pals - I reach for the RhmPz. Cheaper too - since the fast APCR is standard, and the HE is nice.

      If we could pick our maps then setups and tank choices would be very different! If player skills and setups are the same then the Manti gets a small camo advantage in that particular scenario. The RhmPz is better in about 25 other scenarios! Including anytime you need to shoot more than 20x, need to clean up arty, flank something soft, shoot off a hill, or hit a target at 500m

      It works on the waffle4 also. Not quite as much camo but with bounty and directive you get 30% which is great for peeks. 

      Someome tell me why i shouldn't put my bond turbo on the waffle4.

      Vids coming to sr360's YouTube channel as soon as he trims and uploads. Same name as his forum and game handles.

      I've been sorely tempted on the Skorp to try the bLNES. I've not experimented at all with it on any TDs....yet. SU-130PM looks like you can get to 33% which is the lower end of LTs - meaning very good for moving around the maps unspotted, esp from TDs standpoint

      Meant to tag @FavreFan4ever because he asked about this just yesterday.

      Also - to the lurker who messaged me today about the LT posts and video - ititaki or something? Do you have a handle on here? Make thyself known - or send me an ingame friends request because i closed our chat window! Thanks!
