  1. I bought it as well. I can definitely see where the weaknesses are in the tank, but overall this tank may have well improved my game experience tenfold. I have plenty and have had plenty of premium tanks, this is the one that I am clearly most comfortable in (I have a batchat... and even though I can't really clip out a lot of tanks 100-0, you can still bring that "Janitor" play to it), as well as the most fun for me personally. If you have a tier 10 batchat, like it, and play it well, this is not only a great crew trainer (since it matches perfectly), but also allows you to, again, play in that kind of cleanup and support roll, trading 2+ shots per 1 and allowing you to cross the map and switch flanks multiple times, particularly while you're reloading, to mess with the enemies number count on each flank or lend support where needed. TL;DR Fits well with me because I tend to focus better if, when like in my batchat, I have to do something else whilst reloading, and that thing usually is taking the moments to pay attention to the battle flow better. Also doesn't hurt to have a 3 skill+ batchat crew
  2. Hello world! Just came back after about 1.5 years off, due to an old computer really starting to take its toll on the quality of gameplay and generally making me miserable. Just moved to California and upgraded my PC almost completely (Kept PSU... and HDD...) Looking for a clan that is active in Clan Wars or I suppose STrong Holds, preferably that use 10s a lot since it is what I enjoyed the most. Also want to platoon quite a bit, play mainly on West right now, because 25 ping, but East isn't that bad for me at 100. If you feel like you have a clan that fits the bill, let me know! For tier 10 I have... Batchat, 62a, 140 is unlocked just gotta buy SOONtm, 121, 113, T57 Heavy, E5, and AMX 30b
  3. Just moved to California last week! Haven't played much for 1.5 years, but finally upgraded computer after move so I am on NA west, shaking off rust. IG: _Fear_Me I play mostly 8s and 10s. Add me anyone!
  4. Question, coming back after a while away. Should I focus on rebuying my tier 8 light tanks I don't have in my garage at the moment? Or is having them researched enough? Or is there no carry-over if you already own/researched said tank and it moves tiers or whatever? Just trying to figure out if I gotta hammer away at that ASAP or not
  5. Since I haven't been able to find enough opinions on this tank, let's start here! What are your thoughts for ya'll folks who have owned it, or played it at all. Pros? Cons? Meh's? Quirks? Stronkholds? Tell me how you feel. Tell me how you REALLY feel.
  6. So, I decided to start dedicating myself to really focus on the game and try to raise my win rate and wn8 probably around the start of the year, did take a 8-10 weeks off because I started new job/moved/etc. So far, so good, my wn8 has been going up consistently, so over time it will get to at least where I feel like I am "stuck" right now, which would be 1500-2000 wn8 days... but my win rate is all over the place on those days. Sometimes I have 48% win rate for the day, sometimes I have 60%, mostly feel like probably between 50-52% almost always solo. So, long story short, I love playing my tier 10's... I have a Batchat, STB, 62a, and 121 for meds, and 57 heavy/E5 for heavies. I have my more recent crush on my 121 which I feel pretty comfortable in, tend to do more damage per game and kills per game in it, but I do enjoy my Batchat which through 400ish games almost I have a 56% win rate in it. Anyways, after my more recent games, noticing that I do pretty solid damage per game, kills per game, and keep my gun active (Not sniping for wn8 damage because that doesn't necessarily make you win) I still am a bit bothered by my 50-52% win rate I see most nights and feel like that should be improving as my DPG/KPG/WN8 does but I must A) not be doing damage "in the right places" or B) Not closing out enough games and just wondering if there's someones who don't mind platooning around a bit to see if I can pick up on what helps get over that hump I feel I am at. Add me or comment here if you ever want to platoon, i'm around quite often, have multiple comms to use! TL;DR LF PPL GUD@TIERXMEDS TO HELP ME LEARN FROM THEM/FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET MYSELF MORE CONSISTENTLY OVER 52% WIN RATE DAYS SOLO
  7. Yep, I love this tank. I was sold on the test server a couple months ago, bought more into it after the first few games on live. It feels downright dirty to have a 440 alpha gun on that short of a reload. So dirty that I psych myself out sometimes and have to look down at the ammo count to make sure my reload timer isn't just glitching because it's THAT short. Granted, APCR would be nice, but I won't complain, haven't run into any issues thus far in a combined 45 or so games between test and live. Anyone think the new way maps are starting to be shaped up might see a tank like this used more often in a competitive/clan wars sense? Anyways, the magical 7th game on live of mine I just had. Just took opportunistic shots, got some to land, and tried to avoid exposing myself for too long. Ace Tanker on my 7th game! Chinese pub tanks is stronk <3 http://wotreplays.com/site/1925632#erlenberg-fear_me-121 WELLP! It's all down hill from here boys... 2nd Ace Tanker game in first 10 matches on live server. After playing through the Chinese light line and up to the WZ 111 1-4 on the heavies, I have to say, yes sometimes I -really- want that gun depression but it is becoming 2nd nature to handle the -3 degrees. http://wotreplays.com/site/1926087#cliff-fear_me-121
  8. Is it possible that a small Chinese golden age might be arriving with all these "uneven terrain" maps becoming flatter/more even?
  9. I thought they were similar now >_> But this is what i'm struggling with... suppose I will have to purchase them both and see for myself but I can't decide if the comfort/convenience of the 6 shot clip from the T71 might make it a better pub tank, at least for me. But I suppose that's a person by person basis, but personally with autoloaders in pubs I don't always use all the shots, like my batchat, especially early in some games, I see myself unloading maybe 3 shots before they start to look at me, get one more off, then i'm bugging out to reposition on the map so I don't get focused and I happen to reload during that time because having 1 shot I feel is rather wasteful at that point if I don't think I will use it shortly. Edit:also, I can't remember as I haven't played the T71 for so long but are the modules (more specifically the ammo rack) as fragile as the M41? Whenever I see an M41 driving if I can get a shot on his front I know the result can be spectacular.
  10. So, I have seen sprinkles of opinions throughout the forum and other places so far but no real discussion has spawned out of them. The opinions being that the buffs to dispersion/gun handling on the T71 is noticeable and the nerf to the non-autoloader M41 as well as reload on the clip were pretty "lame". With these, I was wondering, is the T71 now on more equal footing? How much? Is it better now and if so, when? Is the gun handling of the T71 worth having 6 shots, more dpm(faster reload/DPM in general) taking 10 seconds to shoot compared to the 10 shots that take 18ish seconds to shoot on the m41? A scenario I see that -could- present itself, at least for myself, would be "How often do I -really- use 7+ shots of a clip in the m41 before I want to reload to have a full clip again? Is there a time/place that you would prefer the 6 shots and just under 19 second reload vs the 10 shots and 32ish seconds of the m41? And with this, let's talk about pubs vs tournaments/organized play as I can see maybe in pubs I am less likely to be able to or want to be exposed for 18 seconds to get off 10 shots rather than 10 seconds or less to get 4-6 shots off before running away batchat style and clipping for 20 seconds on the T71. Just food for thought and would like peoples opinions on what they prefer or value out of the two tanks, and in what scenarios (pubs/organized). Let the discussion begin! Hopefully.
  11. Can people post their thoughts on 100 vs 85 after the buffs? Is it still "feel" or is there a clear winner? I feel like the 100 makes it directly comparable to the 54L while the 85 might make it just different enough... Alpha or DPM, Tourney/Pubs/Whatever scenarios.

    I think the argument is being made that just under 19 seconds for 6 shots people would rather be able to fire 6 shots (exposed 10 seconds max) and having 6 more in 19 seconds rather than trying to shoot 10 shots (being exposed for 18 seconds) and then waiting 32... or shooting 6 shots, then only having 4 more left otherwise have to decide to wait 13 more seconds to get more available shots again, etc etc. Also if the on the move shooting is clearly superior on the T71 after the buff, it might make it -that- much more equal. Hesitant to say the T71 would be better but I do believe it might be on more even footing if it's really that drastic of a gun handling buff vs the M41. tl;dr how many times are you going to be in position to go through 7+ rounds? Do those instances still come about often enough to disregard the T71's 6 rounds with 19 second reload vs 10 with 32? Gun handling a noticeably difference between the two now to add on top of that? THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW! Plz discuss, just trying to make discussion XD

    So is the m41 still the choice? Or does the T71 have qualities that make it better, equal, or "taste dependent" now after 9.6?
  14. Could be because I am so used to playing scout lines, but I really am not "miserable" in a tier 10 game as a tier 8 anything (so far). There's still, again, more than enough you can do to swing odds in your favor and help your team win. Not to mention you'll get more XP damaging tier 10's which makes using it for crew training -that- much simpler... The fact you have enough speed/quickness to flank is all you need to focus on. Find 1v1/2v2's make them 2v1/3v2's or whatever it may be. With 212 pen you're more than capable of putting out damage and if you're a better player than I am (Note, all of you probably are) I am sure you can find spots to take opportunistic shots just fine. Just going off test server where I have played it and the STA-2 so far all day vs a lot of tier 10's, because when people aren't playing the fancy new tanks, they're playing the tier 10's, I haven't had enough issues to stop me from getting -and enjoying- the tank for a premium crew trainer for french meds.
  15. This. Slightly irking how many people keep comparing it to the FCM for carry potential or whatever. If I want to have a tier 8 premium for "stat" purposes, you go with the IS-6, or for more fun the FCM, it's pretty plain and simple. As regards to what this premium tank is, and should be noted for, is it's ability to use my Batchat crew which I am going to LOVE, all while being more than enough to fight whatever it sees.
