I got my first tier 10 3-mark!
Thanks goes to all of you here. I lurked around wotlabs for about a year, and then finally made an account when I wanted to ask a question that seemed to have not been asked yet. I love all that I've learned and continue to learn, and appreciate all the work and content you all have contributed.
Special thanks to @CraBeatOff for taking time to platoon with me, being patient with me, teaching me things that I still strive to learn and master, and especially for introducing me to my favorite tank in the game, the glorious T49. You've helped me enjoy the game so much more than I could have on my own.
I take back everything bad I said about the Ferdi. The top gun REALLY makes the tank. 490 alpha with a 10.1s reload? Yes, please. This thing can do well even in tier X matches.
IMO it's a better TD than the Foch at tier 9.
