  1. Article says the ETA is January, so you have some time...
  2. https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2017/09/29/supertest-french-heavies-stats/ Daily Bounce/Ritas don't mention these, so not sure if it's real or not, but...

  3. So is this worth picking up? Consensus seems to be that the Sheridan is not as good as the T49, same thing here or is this a definite upgrade from the 54LtWt
  4. Read Carbonward's (I really need to learn how to do that highlight name thing) first, it sums up a lot of the tank's issues. It's a good tank, I like it. But, -I don't even bother shooting at anything that can move with any speed moving laterally at a distance, the gun bloom is so bad I never hit them. -The gun needs time to aim in, even driving around a corner, sticking my gun almost into the side of a tank and firing, I've missed or hit track more times than I can count, I find it needs at least a half second or so to aim in, (might just be my connection, but I have heard other players mention it) - It can hit targets, but weak points are a bit hit and miss. 310 HEAT works well, but your accuracy /aim time etc make it a bit iffy if you can hit a moving superheavies weak points at range -As Carbonward said, armor is great in T8 games (although most of the newer premiums won't have an issue with your front armor), T10 games you're pretty much free damage for anything. The STRVS1 can hit 506 view range (no idea why people keep saying it's blind) plus that gun is accurate enough to hit weak spots, it's a better sniper with more than enough VR to burn through most camo, (if that's what your looking for) but I do like the WG better,
  5. Probably. With binocs I get 520ish view range, with optics it was around 450ish (iirc), so probably enough, (depending how you play of course) I find it has pretty good camo and I like to abuse that by the extended view range,(which is great for burning through camo and bushes) But if you like using it closer, 450 is more than enough.
  6. My only real concern (that I can think of atm) is if they don't penalize arty, but give an increased score for stuns, it's going to make for a lot more stat conscious people play arty.
  7. I never paid attention to WoT's old personal rating system, but didn't see anything about this here, (apologies if I missed it) so https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/general-news/re-imagined-personal-ratings-and-the-hall-of-fame/
  8. Carbonward (who is a much better player than I am)likes rammer,GLD, binocs, I find the aim time agonizing with or without the GLD,and I like every little bit of reload speed, so went vents.
  9. Thanks all, pretty much what I had figured, but wasn't sure. Might just pick up the premium TD and snipe for a bit, see how I like it overall.
  10. I have no issues at all with the 3/5/7 format, far prefer it to the old "you\re the only T8 in the game, but look at all the T10's you have to shoot at" but I do think MM could be improved by having the same number of heavies/meds as top tier. Having one team get a Leo and Centurion, vs the other team's Type 5 and Maus on Paris is rarely fun.
  11. Way back when sometime I chose to make some of my female crews Swedish (not Swiss) . As I'm a really smart person, this was before I ever tried any of the Swedish TD's. Just tried some on Supertest (the T8 premium mostly) and while they seem great on defense, sniping from their utterly ridiculous camo, I got wrecked anytime I tried to take a more aggressive approach to using them. I totally understand (and applaud) the fire these things draw when spotted, but I'm wondering if anyone regularly uses them offensively, moving up, spotting for those E100s,M48's, and T100LT's that understanably don't want to move up themselves. Or even just taking forward positions, rather than something half a map back. Just realized with the new personal mission completion scheme I'm going to have an extra 4 female crew, before I assign a third to a line I'm never going to play, I'd like to know if these can be used somewhat offensively, or if they're pretty much camp and snipe until it's cleanup damage time. Thanks!
  12. K I have to ask- how careful do you have to be with the T49 (And Sheridan I guess) at rounding corners?(While driving semi fast) I love the 54Lt but I seem to have a chance to flip over almost anytime I hit a bump at teh same time as I'm turning the tank, not sure if it's just the 54lt (or maybe my driving) or if it applies to all the scout tanks.
  13. Is it one of those things that's "it's a better gun overall" or is it "its a better gun in the hands of either an elite player or a skilled player running in platoons" Honestly- yes I've watched yours/duals/ and the other assorted replays posted here, and absolutely, the gun works for you all, but you're all considerably above average players. I've been chasing down and killing T49 derps recently in the 54Lt, and while I had to switch to a large med kit (when that thing hits it knocks out 2 crew at least) I don't get hit that often. Just swerve around/emergency brake and often I can get them to miss, then fire 2 or 3 shots into them before they reload, rinse and repeat. I take a lot more damage from a 90mm armed one. Again, if it's a platoon of green or higher I stay away from it unless they split up, and I've never met up with one but I'm guessing most elite players would be able to lever the 152's damage to beat me, but for most of the players I've run into- the 152 may be more fun, but I think they\d do a lot better with the 90.
  14. I did notice in the Super Conq that it seemed I was taking a lot less damage from Type 5 heavies and E100's that derped me. Not sure if the extra armor helps, or it was just some abnormally low RNG for them, ( was over 4 games, not exactly a decent sample size) but I had a bunch of 190ish-220ish damage hits on me, usually they're 300+
  15. How do you guys get coupons? Is it buy new video cards/mouse/whatever type of thing?
  16. Only played a few games so far, I like it- camo seems good, aim time seems awkward, mobility is pretty decent, but your fuel tanks are at the front. Don't play Chinese tanks, so maybe this is a no brainer for many of you, but I've been set on fire twice from front penning shots, and had my fuel tanks damaged a number of times Something to keep in mind. And if anyone's interested, 3967/256 assisted +5 kills (and a draw) gets you a Mastery.
  17. From the pictures on TAP, doesn't this look more like a nerf? It's definitely from the side/top/back of the turret, but the front seems to have less armor in numerous spots , the cheeks look stronger, but around the top looks like it's less.
  18. Because I'm stupid. Or maybe xenophobic. Thanks all! I've got enough free XP to get the T7 elited, so might start with that and see how life is as a semi armored 20KPH machine.
  19. Thanks- kinda what I assumed but good to get confirmation from a (much) better player. I actually don't have much interest in the 183, I've simply always liked the idea of the Tortoise, but have always gad to admit I have no idea how to make a slow,giant, underarmored tank work. Maybe best to just wait and see what the T10 is going to be like, if it has enough armor to be workable. I've watched a bunch of replays for teh T7-9, but they all seem to be the red team driving in front of one of the TD's repeatedly rather than any decisive positioning or playing.
  20. Hey all So (because so many are doing it and damnit, I'm a follower)thinking of grinding the 183 line before the replacement. (And because that replacement tanks looks sexy) But most of what I can find on the various AT seems to predate the Japanese heavies and the Swedish TD line. AS well as buffs to various tanks, new premiums etc, so (to me) it looks like armor that was "OK" a few years back is decidedly useless now. I like the idea of the line (just stack DPM on more DPM) but I'm not sure how it will play out in the hands of an average player. Anyone have any recent experience?
  21. Yeah, the tank seems fantastic -if i can get hull down and in a position where I have time to aim. Any other situation and it's kinda... useless. I don't get the love for it, as I said, totally get the hull down thing, but in all those situations where it can't get hull down, that gun handling (worst T9 heavy) coupled with the aim time (worst T9 heavy) just make it so...crap. It's not a bad tank by any means, had some fantastic games in it, it just seems so...situational.
  22. So... Apparently it's a bad idea to tell platoons of Scouts they suck, I get TK'd enough that I don't really need a platoon going for me You're a little sick. (Also lesson learned, never tell a scout platoon they suck...apparently they take it personally) Watched a few of your replays and you always seem to carry premium HE, don't think I've ever seen you use it, what do you carry it for? EDIT= Also want to thank you guys for making/posting in this thread. I've discovered the sheer number of completely useless players running around in T49's with 152, either singularly or in platoons is staggering, playing the 54lt has never been so much fun.
  23. And more importantly- from what I understand, being able to complete three trees for "free". would mean I get 3 female crew right away (again unless I'm mistaken)
  24. Really? So just looked and I actually completed all 5 of the final missions with honors from Stug,T28, and T55A, this means I only need to complete one 260 set to get the tank? That is kinda nice.
