  1. ^^ This was going to be my response as well. Platoon with something that you KNOW will be in the front. Or if you're bringing a partner discuss tracking with them as a "priority". I did this mission VERY quickly just spamming random platoon requests in battles.
  2. Oops I posted this in the other thread and meant to post it here: Currently on MT-15.4, TD-15.4, SPG-15.4 and HT 6, 7 and of course 15. LT-15.4 done but not with honors. Couple of questions/thoughts: How do you complete HT-6.4 (kill 2 HTs 2 tiers higher than you) when you can't get a match with 2 HTs 2 tiers higher than you? And then of course best tank to do this? In the current MM I'm thinking that the easiest way will be in a tier 6 or 7. The thought of trying to kill like a Maus and some other tier 10 in a tier 8 just seems harder than killing say a Defender, Patriot, Chrysler in say a KV-2. SPG-15: which arty is best for this now? I'm wondering if I should buy the T92 while it's on track. I just unlocked it but have not bought it. I have the M53/55, M40/43, Lorr 155-51, BC 155-58, FV 3805. So I really only ever played arty for the missions and I just don't play it much...but I've kept key SPGs in case they are needed for clan wars. The BC 58 seems like it's no longer used due to the nerfs so I'm thinking of selling it and picking up the T92. MT-15: I seem to keep getting TD dump matches when playing a TD...but when I'm playing a MT there are seemingly less TDs to get this 4k damage. Toon with TDs? I have TVP 50/51 and BC 25T which I assume are still the prefered MTs for this mission...though I'm sure the RU MTs are fine too. Thoughts? TD-15 will happen when it happens. I've gotten close a couple of times but the circumstances to get that much damage just don't fall into place for me very often. Been running Grille 15 and STRV 103-B along with the FV 215b 183 and JPE100 every now and then. HT-15 I've done in multiple games in a row in my Maus...just got to get those other two missions done and I think that one will be easy. Edit: so the first post really needs updated as the SPGs can't platoon anymore....and you can't do platoons like a Cromwell with an E25 anymore.

  4. I agree with everything Crab just posted. I have the Rhm Pzw....it's super fun to drive...and prints losses. I also have the Sheridan...and I win in it...go figure. The 1390 is great as are the tier 7 Prems. RIP T37, M7 I love you guys...but can't play you with all the nerfs. 27 extra garage slots means I can keep them to look at my 3 marked barrels though.
  5. Ok so with 9.18 the SPG missions are all different and certainly have different needs. What's the pick for SPG-15 for the Obj 260 these days. Requirement is for your team to do 3,500 damage to tanks you stun or track, win, and be top on both teams in XP. Getting people to shoot what you've stunned is quite a challenge.
  6. Yeah the problem with MM right now is that due to low server population of tier 10 LTs, while MM DOES match you against another LT...it's not always, or even often, a tier 10 LT. I wish I had a screen shot of some of the MM I've gotten. The new MM is nice....but it can be dicy to play a tier 10 LT in it when server populations are down.
  7. Hmm...so you went here over the Rheinmetall Panzerlosswagon huh? I went the other way for higher DPM and better accuracy with a few more HP. Nearly as fast. Not as good camo or armor...LOTS more view range. Trouble for me in this current MM is when your in a 3/5/7 match and the other team gets tier 10 MTs and HTs. Hard to do your part against superior tanks. I'll grind this one out in time. Looking forward to continued thoughts.
  8. Yes...nothing is updating. My guess is WG pulled the plug on it for now. Think about it...all of these sites cover all WG servers not just the US. Currently only the US has 9.18 so any adjustments that will be made (and there WILL be a lot of them) would currently only affect US players and be really wrong for other servers. There's going to have to be a BIG LT adjustment and SPG adjustment for sure...probably everything. It almost makes you wonder if WG is holding the stats in case they decide to roll back the patch and NOT release it to the other servers.
  9. Right...as everyone has said no change to the need for repairs. Now something I was thinking about is Jack of all Trades. I have VERY few crews I run this on anyway but has reusable kits made it virtually worthless now? I mean my RU HT CO has BiA, 6th, Repairs, Situational Awareness and are at 50 something percent on JOAT. Would Recon or Fire Fighting be a better skill choice now?
  10. So close to an Obj 260 I can taste it....but 9.18 has really made it more difficult I believe. The new MM system will make LT-15.4 harder. Now I need a tier 10 LT that gets a tier 10 only match on one of 3-5 maps to have a strong chance? I mean I had an AMAZING game in my T49 today and did 6.6k combined but that was 5.2k damage and 9 kills. TD-15.4? Again everything has to fall right but I guess taht one hasn't had as big an impact. MT-15.4 The new balancing of TDs AND the new MM are having an impact here but still doable. I'm really struggling with the new SPG missions. Currently on the one where I need to stun or track 6 that my team damages...seem to keep getting 4 or 5. Stunning is no issue...someone damaging a tank that I've stunned is the issue. Trying to be more cognizant of firing at targets that are engaged with my allies as opposed to TDs camping or even counter battery. Any thoughts on which of the new tier 10 LTs would be best fot LT-15?

  12. I just got both good news and bad news on the main forums. Bad news first: Turning off accel crew training and grinding up a bunch of XP to instantly unlock the tier 10s won't work on any of the tier 8 LTs. They are going to leave that XP with the tier 8....shitty. Now the good...ok great news: They have put the 152mm BACK ON the T49 on the sandbox server. Good...if you're not going to let me grind the XP now in anticipation then at least let me have the fun of doing the grind WITH the 152mm lolcannon.
  13. Yeah actually I've had plenty of premium ammo shot at me on EU, even in low tier games. Was a bit surprised by some of it given all I've read. Given the tiers I'm currently playing and the few tanks I have I haven't needed prem much if at all. In the M41/90 I almost never fire any on either server. I think I used a couple of HEAT shells from the Skoda T 40 in a tier 8 match once but that's it. I had a platoon of T-34-100 spam HEAT at my Type 64 in one match...whatever their credit loss...their AP would have gone in just fine. Ok so I guess it's just an initial impression thing...thanks for the feedback.
  14. Ok not sure if this is the right forum for this or not...please feel free to move if not. I recently started an EU account because I wanted to see if/how play was different there vs on the NA servers where I have played the game. One thing that I believe is different is the credit income of some (maybe all) tanks. I don't have a lot of play on EU yet but at first glance while running my M41/90 Blackdog it really seems like it does not earn nearly the credits that I earn in it on my NA account. Here's a screen shot of my battle result from this morning. Not a great match but not bad...I feel like that same match on the NA server would have net like 20k more credits. But of course now I have to have a similar match to prove that fact. Does anyone else play both servers and think that they have seen the same? I've read that the EU playerbase and gamers in general are a different breed than our ADHD US gamers in the fact that they aren't going to just jump to a different game at the drop of a hat. It would seem to me like lower credit compensation from premium tanks could have a number of impacts on game play: Less premium ammo spam - fewer credits to burn = less free flowing gold spam in games as player need their credits for tanks and regular ammo Longer time spent at lower tiers - fewer credits means you can't get that new tank as fast so you spend more time going up the tech tree Now in the US I believe the perception is that a new player will give up the game if they can't quickly have that next best tank or get frustrated by not being able to pen that higher tier HT. More credits can give that player the next tank or give him the ability to spam gold and pen that higher tier tank without the need to learn weak spots. As an aside...I could REALLY use some friends on EU to platoon with. Yes I understand that you won't want to play low tiers but I can run my M41/90...or the tier 6 premiums. I had a couple of days of just roll loss after roll loss and I'd love to have someone I can count on and play with/off of. EU account is Grasschopper_EU Add me in game.
  15. http://wotreplays.com/site/2845918#prokhorovka-grasschopper-type_4_heavy Not that my play was stellar...good enough to be on top sure... Honestly I knew I was screwed as soon as I saw it was Prok with arty. Never quite sure where to take that slow beast on that map.
