    churchill50 reacted to Tarski in Removed Maps   
    Yes, seizing the low ground may seem like a bad tactic on its face. And yes, ensuring my Maus takes half the length of the average game to even have a target to shoot may seem like a waste of DPM. And yes, it takes me about 2 minutes to get back to the high ground after winning the good ol' beach. But what you don't understand is that one time last year I saw a team go beach and then win soundly by flanking the enemy team and getting on cap, and I'm sure if I keep trying enough times I can make that happen again. Also the sound of the waves is calming.

    As I said in my review, you can't rely on the armor. The only way it works is if RNG massively favors you.
    Instead, rely on your combination of gun performance, gun depression, and alpha/DPM. Go hull down, poke, and snap shot. Make sure you can trade 2 for 1 with anything with higher alpha, and make sure to just stick to trading with all the 240/250/300/320 alpha tanks.
    This is more of a second-line heavy than a frontline brawling heavy. Try not to be the main center of attention, and don't try to tank.
    The tank revolves around the gun. The armor is unreliable and the mobility is only decent.

    churchill50 got a reaction from lavawing in lava's lazy reviews (last update 3/12/2O19)   
    Purple text reminds me too much of Gasai_Yuno. Other than that, pretty good review.
    Props for trying to bring this forum back to life. I've been trying to think of something I can do towards the same goal. My one issue is that seemingly everything has been hashed out already, so adding to the conversation (especially with so many better players than I am around) is difficult. Still trying to come up with an idea, but I like yours.
    Gotta remove the props for saying positive things about arty though...

    churchill50 reacted to Mikosah in toxic light tanks   
    ^MFW I read this thread.
    So let's get this straight, passive play is the problem but it isn't caused by arta or chai snipers, these only cause trouble because other tanks spot targets for them? Meanwhile, we're also establishing that mediums fulfill the spotting role sufficiently so that we don't need a dedicated scout class to begin with even if mediums basically cause all the same 'toxic behaviors' as lights? Also that light tank players pad their stats because lights have super low requirements. Why might that be?
    Ok, so here's a few mild rebuttals: 1- passive play happens because it has always been and will forever be path of least resistance. But one of the best ways to excise the cancerous tumors of arta and chai snipers is to gee, I don't know, spot them. If only there was a class for that. 2- generally speaking, high tier tanks all have very high view range and mutually spot one another whenever they engage unless render distance or bush shenanigans are in play. True that it does make lights redundant in most situations, but if the complaint is that vision causes passivity, what about every other tank with high view range? 3- lights get used for padding because they have super low wn8 requirements, and that's because they don't do nearly as well in the current meta as any other class.

    I haven't personally tried it yet (although I probably will be doing so with the bonds from this last Ranked Season).
    However, from the discussion in here (on Pages 40-42 iirc), the Improved V-Stab is the most suggested piece of equipment for the T49.

    Well, I finally did it. After 564 games, I finally put enough good ones in a row to get the mark. 

    Also, a screenshot with digi-camo, which I decided to put on it since it's my most played tank.

    I don't have a screenshot of the final battle since my game crashed while I was loading back to the garage, but it was 8.8k combined.
    Overall, it was quite a journey. I've learned a lot and become a lot better at the tank. When I first got it, I couldn't figure it out. Luckily, someone pointed me here, where I learned to play it. It is now my most played tank in the game, and will always be one of my favorites.
    Thank you to all here for the advice, information, replay reviews, and everything else.

    Well, I finally got to experience the joy of a 3-man T49 platoon the other day, and I'm just left wondering why I didn't do it sooner. While a lone T49 is a competitive and fun tank, 3 of them in a platoon is absolutely insane.
    We had a ton of hilarious moments, but the best was probably a battle on Redshire. An M53/M55 on our team starts the battle by calling us a fail platoon (meanwhile we were running 70%+ winrate for two days straight in that platoon). We promptly proved him wrong by killing an ELC EVEN 90, AMX 13 90, and Leopard PTA and crippling a Defender in the first two minutes of the battle.

    So they are offering the chance to gamble for a tier 5 with the armor of a tier 7, and a low tier arty that fires every 10 seconds, is super accurate, and was the only arty in game that got to keep its AP/HEAT rounds? get fucked have fun new players.
    and for the higher tier tanks they are offering every widely know premium thats either toxic or unfair for game-play. get fucked have fun tier 6's. 
    oh and yeah im including the IS-3A in that list ahead of time. because while i personally haven't played it in its new state, the idea of a high alpha tier 8 HT that gets a reverse auto-reloading system doesn't necessarily scream "balanced".

    Rage post, nothing to see here.
    Played it enough to call it now: what a garbage map. The north is unpushable without a 2 to 1 turf advantage. If you try to advance past the center hill you're getting fire from the bushy hill TDs, the heavies in the center brick building, and long bombs from around the base all while fighting the tank on the other side of the hill in the open. Entire flank is a trap, once you go there you just sit and do nothing or you get bored, push, and die.
    Try to scout center and you may get some lights and do some useful work or you may just sit with your dick in your hand because, as per standard WG map rules, the center is useless so no one but the 45%ers who would never influence the match anyway go there. Enjoy the occasional retard yolo up the trench from the south flank where you now get to DPM each other until one of you dies for extra fun. Also, arty loves you 600m away without line of sight on them.
    Go south side and run into the church only to find another tank(s) on the other side and you've now prox spotted each other and can't ever move again, because snipers will barrage you instantly if you try. Get pinned down for minutes on end until some one relieves you or the other guy is stupid enough to try to go after you and gets killed by your snipers.
    Mop up is a Five Nights at Freddies jump scare game if there are TDs left because WG seems to have gotten over its fear of bushes and went nuts around the base with the paint brush.
    Typical game consists of taking lame peeking shots at each other until all the morons thin themselves out trying to be heroes, then pushing in with a numerical advantage, then getting that advantage whittled back down by all the bush wankers until one tank is left standing. 4/10 design, at least it isn't Province.

    Who is trying to 1v1 other LTs? Since when is hp trading in a vision/camo class with hp and no capacity to bounce a good idea? Does anyone who is objecting to this tanks strengths watch my replays? How many replays do I need to post? @tajj7 did you watch the replays?  Almost every objection I read makes some fundamentally wrong assumption - like that there's no vision on Ruinberg and Ensk or that 7% camo is basically nothing.

    churchill50 got a reaction from kaneaaa in Highlight and Lowlight of WOT 2017?   
    My highlight was getting my first two 3-marks. First was the T20 in September, and the second was the T-54 on Dec 31st at 10:00PM.
    Secondary highlight was the Christmas event. 4 female crew members and insane discounts? Oh, and bonuses to credits, xp, and crew xp as well? Yes please. It was the single best event in my memory in WoT.
    I'd have to agree with you on the lowlight. Tier 8 mm has not been fun. Plus, I'll be grinding tanks like the VK 45.02A, 110, and AMX 65t in that mm soon, which I am not looking forward to.

    I feel like I finally have something to post here. I got on here originally more than a year ago after struggling initially in the T49. I learned a lot from this thread, which helped me learn the T49's very unique playstyle and start doing well and having fun in it.
    This game that I just had is the culmination of that:
    http://dezgamez.wot-record.com/replay/64545/churchill50_best_game_ever_in_t49
    It was quite a fun game. Thanks to everyone who has posted here for giving me pointers on how to play the T49. It's become one of those tanks that I go to play just for fun or when things aren't going my way.
