    I fucking love this tank. Once you've sweet talked it a bit and got used to what it can and can't do, literally shits all over everything.

    The on the move accuracy is more of an issue for me than the speed, but I am glad that is getting nerfed.  Just remove them already and we can all go back to whining about arty.

    In sniper mode, to the sides of the center of the aiming circle, there are "lines" that look similar to this: ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ 
    I try to align those with the ridge line when I am looking at the opponents, and this is a quick way to get a decent hull down, when you don't have time for micro adjustments.

    My take on the whole EBR situation (because IMO its the EBR's that primarily are problem) stem from several things.
    Start by buffing the tier 10 lights so most of them actually feel like actually tier 10 vehicles (and this can mean improving their "medium" tank characteristics too). Even if its perfectly balanced as a tier 10 vehicle, it will be seen as either unbalanced or dominating when the only similar vehicles are notably worse.  Reduce the on the move accuracy. They nearly or feel like a tank that is just as accurate on the move as they have while stationary when playing against them, something that holds true for no other tank in the game. Have a consistent number of wheels-to-destroy-to-immobilize across the line. I'd recommend 4 wheels for complete immobilization (but practically less than that). Wheeled vehicles with more wheels seem significantly harder to effectively immobilize currently than those with fewer wheels Increase how much losing the first wheel degrades the mobility of a wheeled tank, and in general make the initial wheel loses have more of an effect. A single wheel right now can feel more like a slight impediment as opposed to something notable. Reduce mobility slightly, but generally just bring them in line so they play like a slightly more mobile light tank as opposed to something which is relatively removed from other light tanks.

    Nah I legit think the EBRs are more broken than arty, and Id legit remove both them and the STRVs before I removed arty if I was running it

    Hold RMB while pressing Shift to prevent the re-aim
    This happens when you aim at terrain that is poorly modeled (near corners usually) and zooming out makes it spaz out, turrets with guns mounted elsewhere than dead center get this much more often

    I think Wargaming has a hat full of asset cards. they pull out a nation card, turret card, gun card, hull card and so on until they make a new tank. Move the slider bars around until the stats seem "reasonable", call the tank "dynamic", make something up about its history, and throw the thing onto supertest as a marketing device.

    I c0mpleted FL in 17 battles, 940 avg exp.
    I ranked up with Caern AX, Patri0t, Sk0rp G, Defender, FCM, M41D  (getting capt) as quickly p0ssible, then went ham t0 die, t0 start grinding Bat Chat12T, 0bj 416, T-44, IS3, Indien Pz, VK45A, M41 Bulld0g. That is al0t 0f 8s, frankly the best way t0 grind them 0ut. IS3, a c0mplete pleasure t0 drive, I g0t within 5K fr0m finishing (b0th 257 and T10)  the rest still need a t0nne 0f w0rk. I made 5mill credits, and just spent 12 mill 0n -50% 0ff eqp sale. L0ts 0f recent purchases like TE3, STB1, 0r added prems like Emil 51, Mutz, Senlac, Strv57, 0bj 244 needed eqp.
    I generally d0n't make cash in FL, because I run large first aid/large repair kit 0n all tanks. Bat Chat 12T runs all APCR. T-44 can't pen shit with 122, I run all APCR with 2 HE. M41 can't pen shit, s0 I run all APCR. I st0ckpile b00sters, I never activate them. 
    Things I have n0ticed new in FL, and n0t new.  B0urque is n0 where near as p0werful as l0rraine 0r pr0gett0. Standard pen is l0w, sh00ting fr0m range is t0xic.  0bj 703  II is better than IS3A 0r S0mua.  E75TS,  Renegade, Patri0t, Emil 51 are very str0ng being heavy tanks that can cruise ar0und @ 40km.   Which brings up change, tanks like Caern AX are pr0bably sec0nd rate n0w, n0t because it is sl0w as a heavy as it is n0t, but because it is n0t fast like the previ0us.  0nly reas0n Defender is still great, is because it is still ann0ying as fuck t0 kill and just sits 0n cap eff0rtlessly.  Arta is still real t0xic, dr0p-able c0nsumables are real t0xic, LTs are real t0xic and sh0uld be limited like arta.  TS5 is 0ver rated, Sk0rp G and SU130PM d0 real well, S1 and WZ120G are under rated.  Saw a fair bit 0f CW reward Kreslavsky, IS5, T95 driving ar0und, fucking useless at that.

    Only played 4 or 5 games in it but I prefer it the Lorraine.  The quick double tap, faster reload, soft stats, small size and camo make it superior IMO to the Lorraine, the Lorraine feels too clunky for the current meta, it feels like a 50b. 
    Getting a quick 720 damage out with like a 20s reload feels far more practical for the current meta than 1300 damage in like 7.5s with like a 35s reload. 
    Games are too short, maps are too congested, tanks are too clumped up, opportunities are too breif for the Lorraine's clip to work IMO, you end up getting a couple of shots in the Lorraine most of the time at best, and then umming and ahhhing about going for the reload and being out the game for 35s or missing out on shots. 
    This thing just makes more sense to me, pop out, blap, blap, retreat, do it again in 20s. 
    Gun handling is a much of muchness, between the two, the Lorraine will be the better sniper of course, but popping out, stopping and aiming at stuff at medium to short the Bourrasque feels better to me, plus it can pseudo scout to a much larger to degree than the much larger, worse camoed Lorraine which feels much more squarely stuck in the support role.
    This thing, despite its clear drawbacks, and potential annoyances, has massive potential IMO.

    okay, a tad about some history first.   My first CW reward was IS5, with Fusion. I got T95E6 with Thugz, as my first T X Reward. Selected 121B as my second, a part of Supernova. Selected obj907 for my third, being a part of Pingu. Lastly, just purchased M60 with bonds from the store. I am debating whether or not I want to take part in D of I, as I won't be able to take part in all of it. I leave for work on the 23rd, nor am I in a super duper hipper turbo clan, so I'd be stuck. The remaining driving factors to sway me, are of course bonds and being able to assemble either Kreslavsky or Chieftain. But enough of that, every campaign I have been part of had different directional meta-game tank usage, so I'm just out to predict D of I.
    Star-Road, God tier:   obj 260, Chieftain, 279E, obj 430U, obj 907, EBR105, GC
    Every tank here is self explanatory. 
    Gold cup, Tier 1:   Super Conq, WZ5A, obj 277, IS7, VK72, bat chat, UDES, obj 140, T-100LT, Strv, T110E3, obj 268V4, M53/M55
    Pretty much the strong tanks acting as filler and subs in tank locking, or clans without lineups of CW rewards. Nevertheless still good stuff. VK72 the new replacement for derper Type 5, with the added attacking ability because of 35Omm HEAT. TDs seem to continue to fall and fall in usage because speed is so important, so the good ones appear here. Russian light is a great backup, and works. M53/M55 though a great arty, just can't seem to deal enough damage to be God tiered
    Silver cup, Tier 2:   Kran, T57, Maus, T110E4, K-91, Leo, AMX13105, obj 261
    Mediocre stuff that is passable. or extremely situational, like Maus for sponging or T57 for close range DPM. Kran doesn't have suitable HEAT, so its here. E4 for those close range maps where people want to use it as pseudo-heavy, and it can still do the old Type 5 dirty ass HE'ing. Sniper schnitzel pseudo-TD meds as well. Thought about placing TVP here, but does anyone TVP anymore? STB1 despite the buffs, is just what I think is an UDES that sucks. obj 261 can still work as arty, though the low ammo count and damage, oooofffff
    Everything else is trash.
    121B could have been good with its buffs, but the DPM and top speed are just too low. T62A is a bad 140, itself a poorer 907. 113 is a bad 430U,  lol at the people that thought it would rival WZ. T110E5 is a bad Conqueror.  AMX30 a bad Leo. 705 a bad VK72. 60TP is over rated, I'd never take this thing over VK72 or E4. Don't think progetto or TVP have what it takes for CW, though excellent in pubs. Type 5 is trash now and rightfully so, WG best decision ever. Badger sucks, really did it ever amount to anything with all its prior hype? Panzer wagon used to do exotic route blocking strategies on Mines/Karelia hill, but with EBR that doesn't work anymore. Feel free to chime in if I left anything out. And before people want to cry foul about hulldown STB1 or M48A2 or Cent AX  -  believe me UDES replaces all of them

    It's not ignorant. Maps are not designed to handle this type of mobility. 
    But whatever dude, you have fun playing a game with tiny ass vehicles flying 60m everywhere spotting you with zero counterplay because you can't hit them because of how bloom works :^)
