  1. Yeah I missed that memo I do remember trying it once on some poor bastard but I was basically done with the tank, it's something like 11k to unlock the next one after you get the gun and turret... So a couple good games with a boost on, and it was done. In general I don't play low tier that much, if ever, so using HE didn't even cross my mind.
  2. 4 was pure shit. 5 seems worse. Cannot even fathom playing with less than 100% crew. WG needs to stop making tanks that can only be skipped and not played through without loathing the game and losing interest. I can see a lot of new players uninstalling in a hurry thinking the rest of the game is equally ridiculous. I had a friend who refused to even try to grind past tier 3 after I recommended WOT. Italians weren't out back then, but it was a similar deal. I forget which line he picked, but he still can't believe I play "the worst video game he has ever played" It's like playing Super Mario without being able to jump. Essentially unplayable. It's so bad, I skipped being mad straight to laughing hysterically about how absurdly shitty they made it. It's slow, big, can't snipe, can't pen, shells fly like birds through ballistic gel... Honestly, WG loses a lot of potential players because they never get past shit tubs like this one. And they are still adding more. What the fuck.
  3. I think it's fun. Currently at 20 games @ 67% WR somehow, afraid to touch it now because I know it'll only get worse. Not saying it's OP, or even good - however it is fun, and can turn the tide of battle in one or two clicks. Here I nail a Maus for 1850 with one shot. Feelsgoodman.jpg
  4. Just bought it after the buff. Still utter shit, novelty wears off after the first two games. Useless mostly. You don't, that's the answer. Not if you like to make a consistently positive difference, instead of sporadic four digit damage that usually adds up to a mediocre amount in the end.
  5. Just got this thing and so far I totally think it's worth it. This is my 2nd game ever with 90% crew (except commander) - seems like a better Leo, with insane DPM, great accuracy and no real downsides that i can see so far! EQ: rammer, vents, stab New-ish Crew: BIA, camo, 6th, snapshot and repair on 2 of them.
  6. Just bought the 30B, and i think it's worth the grind. I've learned a bit from watching my own videos and will try to keep them "short and sweet" from now on - although still done in one take. Perhaps I'll experiment with editing in the future but in the meantime please check out my thoughts on this fine piece of French machinery and how it compares to the preceding T9 AMX 30, Leo and other tanks.
  7. You can kinda sorta snipe with the derp, if you have food, vents, BIA, good crew etc. The derp is really more for this kind of play style depicted in this video. Also, don't be afraid to use AP, and not just HESH. It'll save you $$$ and quite possibly result in more damage at the end.
  8. Conway derp gun part two: AP versus HESH. Should you always shoot HESH, and nothing but the HESH? Well I don't think so. In fact I do 6k here with nothing but AP and I explain why.
  9. Always wanted to turn some replays into videos, so here's my very first one! Conway with the 5.5 Derp gun - is it worth it over the 120? All comments welcome. Ace Tanker, 6400 dmg, Top Gun on Pilsen:
  10. The derp gun really is more fun. It drains credits a bit, and running food isn't helping, but i will probably do the rest of the grind with it. I've never made videos from replays before, so this is my first time - don't judge me too harshly Mistakes were made, but it worked out - let me know what you think! Ace tanker, 6400 dmg, Top Gun:
  11. Ah, okay. I'm about to unlock the derp gun and that it's fun is good to hear. I imagine it totally changes the tank - my guess was not for the better, but not for the worse either. So far this thing has been easy to "tolerate" and I'm even having fun here and there. You do feel a bit useless in some maps, like El Halluf, when everyone goes north. I've been playing it like a pseudo-medium on occasion, usually late game, flanking when people are engaged and so forth. The gun almost makes up for the platform in those cases, and the 5.5 could be even better since a lot of the times those are side shots or even ass shots. Still though, I fear the drop in DPM will be palpable. Like a jumbo T49 that is worse in every single way, but I guess it's a taste of what's to come at tier 10. So how's the "shit barn"? Is it worth it to turbo-grind the 183 before it gets yanked?
  12. What do you guys make of it after the buff? I can imagine the 103-0 is better in every way at the same role. However i had the Conway unlocked for a long time, and tonight I finally bought it given the recent improvements to it, and the "shit barn" 4005. My first three games I averaged 2800 dmg, but only 33% WR. It's a very passive machine. I hate camping red line Also - what equipment do you recommend? I went with Rammer, Vents and Binos. Partially because it made sense and partially because I had those things. Camo isn't as good as I expected, so I skipped the net. The reload is so good, I wonder if using something else in place of rammer is worth it. GLD seems pointless, the gun aims really fast. Edit: forgot it has another gun, I was talking about the 120. So maybe GLD for the second gun. Is the 140mm worth using? Still 60k away from it.
  13. In a way that's good to hear because then it isn't just me. On the other hand I remember grinding for it and being way too excited. I put my Swedish women in it, and now have only one left as a commander for the TD line. I thought it would be the other way around, with the TD being bad and the Kran being the new "flavor of the month(s)" Just won the S1 in the halloween event so time to get the 103 I guess! Currently at 66% on the S1 after about 44 games or so, think I'm getting the whole siege mode thing.
  14. There you go. I read your first review, and thought "man I really need to just learn this thing better, unless he wrote this after only a few games" and then i saw this. I can't seem to win in mine, it's cursed, and feels flawed and sluggish even when you're actually penetrating stuff. I'd agree that it's a 6.5/10 tank max, the way the meta is currently. After the 268 this was my second biggest let down as far as 10s go.
