  1. Faster. Doesn't have the top speed, but has more maneuverability and acceleration. Turret is not as slow either.
  2. Kran van hull. N0t Emill ll. The arm0ur is 90/70, n0t 80/60. Als0, Emill ll has a pike shape, with sec0nd step ''sh0ulder pads'' like 0bj 430. Kran van d0esn't, and with the visuals pr0vided s0 far, l00ks certainly like Kran and n0t Emill ll. I am n0t sure if it is g0ing t0 have the Caern ''Centuri0n'' turret, 0r the Centuri0n turret 0n Cent7/1. 7/1 has a much better gun mantlet.
  3. Seems very agile th0ugh. The tank will just ab0ut never get flanked unless 0utnumbered Has m0re HP/T than T10, and absurdly better track traverse that st0mps even fast heavy tanks like AMX50B. Turret traverse is als0 like a medium tank. We d0 n0t kn0w the terrain resistances yet, but if we can expect s0mething estimate-able such as the rest 0f the Emils like 1.15/1.25/2.01 it basically is a medium tank. generic things that lend t0 decent supp0rting r0les like VR, -GD are there t00.
  4. wow. That was an edit. I always thought it was Has, with a scripter, that changes all the characters around automatically. You actually went through that post, with a manual edit? Holy mole guacamole.

  6. N0 0ne is getting back at any0ne. I believe all y0ur p0sts are ridicul0us, and deserve the reacti0n. If y0u d0 n0t like the wh0le thing, ign0re me. With that in mind, I just have n0t g0tten t0 d0wn v0ting m0re, pard0n me. In additi0n, I am at a w0rkers camp, the wifi is really p00r. I will get right 0n it, as s00n as I can.
  7. I have a question. This is something I learned to do watching Lemmingrush and Fochs content, essentially playing a vehicle outside of its role and/or strengths. For instance, they would go city in medium tanks, or in himmels / Karelia - fight for the respective hills with faster heavy tanks. From what I see, there are obvious advantages and disadvantages. When I played 121 med alot grinding bonds last year, I put a significant amount of effort and time, playing it as a heavy tank, and thought it was a good trade-off for my team's benefit. Thoughts about this?
  8. 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.
  9. Air strike and artillery barrage are quite p0is0n0us, n0 matter what damage they deal. S0me pe0ple d0 n0t like w0rking f0r their p0ints , they w0uld rather have rewards and experience f0r free. I 0nce was talking t0 s0me0ne supp0rting these call-in muniti0ns, with him arguing 0ver they are very necessary in FL t0 av0id defensive stalemates and camping. What a l0ad 0f h0rseshit. It is laziness, s0me shit made f0r th0se cunt arta players t0 d0 in the 0ff-time they have after every sh0t, and t0 av0id being 0utplayed 0r 0utmicr0. And that is that. Premium ammuniti0n usage is actually very l0w. Pr0gett0s, l0rraine, WZ120G, Sk0rp G, SU130PM, Patri0t, Caern AX -- I rarely see these tanks spamming straight prem. Same with EBR75 and LT432. The pr0blem lies firstly with tanks that have p00r pen, like B0urque and Sk0da T27. T-34-3 and Ravi0li. 0r tanks with massive increases in pen, such as Pershing. And sec0ndly what these pe0ple are fighting against. Clashing with tanks such as TS5, Chrysler, 112, Defender, VK75? Expect t0 be sh0t at with prem, y0u deserve it. C0mpared t0 pubs, especially tiers lX-X....prem usage is way d0wn th0ugh. With0ut a d0ubt. Pr0gett0s, L0rraine, EBR75, LT432, Sk0rp G, SU130PM, Defender are all 0ld news. They d0minated FL bef0re, and still d0 s0 currently. Every0ne kn0ws that. I think it is great WG added m0re c0mpetitive tanks t0 j0in the fray like 0bj 703 ll, Renegade, E75TS.... why n0t? M0re int0 the mix means less 0f FL is stale. As shitty as it may certainly be, it still beats grinding tier 8 tech tree tanks in tier X pub MM. That is what FL is f0r. A piece 0f shit like T-34-2 0r AT15 are c0mpletely h0rrible, but can still w0rk in FL, because at the very least are against pr0gett0s and sk0rps they can actually damage, instead 0f being against an ST-II 0r T57 and getting st0mped. Silver, exp, free exp, tech trees, B0nds+G0ld, reward vehicles, garage sp0ts -- that is what FL is all ab0ut. I think it is a sweet deal.
  10. Yes, not the camo skill itself, but rather the 'camo' property, of being behind certain bushes. Seems broke as fuck, KV2s hiding and shit. I have been saying for a long time now, view range doesn't really counter enemies professionally staying hidden in dense brush, rather than relying on camo skill itself.
  11. I understand what K0lni means t0 say, the intent with all tier X MM arm0ured cars are fairly easy t0 hit. And I can agree, they are, but 0nly using light and medium tanks, which have very quick travelling APCR as standard ammuniti0n, c0mpared t0 m0st heavy tanks (minus the Panzer Vll & 260) AP h0vering between nine-hundred and 0ne-th0usand. The TDs even less s0, h0vering between eight-hundred and nine-hundred. This makes arm0ured cars particularly frustrating t0 hit, especially when y0u d0 manage t0 hit them there is a chance it is a wasted tire hit. I c0mpletely agree with the assessment 0f c0mbat against tanks like Chieftain, Kran, UDES, Super C0nq - fighting against them hulld0wn. 99% 0f the time, there is s0mething better y0u can be d0ing, and it is just atr0ci0us t0 get je-baited int0 c0ntesting them. There are much better things y0u can d0 with y0ur time. Even if the 0pp0nent just has 0ne-hundred HP left, HE is s0 unreliable it by n0 means is a guarantee either t0 s0lve y0ur pr0blem. This last week in an advance, a hulld0wn Chieftain had 171 HP, in my WZ5A I decided t0 test my luck with HE and dealt 43 damage. That w0uld take me an0ther 4 sh0ts, and nearly a minute t0 d0 what I needed. Frankly, unacceptable. The pr0blem I have with tier X and the t0pic 0f incredibly imp0rtant vehicle selecti0n f0r viability (AKA ranked) is the am0unt 0f wasted eff0rt placed int0 getting the 0ddball tier X and then having them c0nstantly 0utplayed because 0f the am0unt 0f p0werful reward vehicles 0ut there n0wadays, them definitely being a pr0blem in rand0m public battle t00. N0t just CW/Adv. 0r 0ther vehicles simply getting replaced with newer releases. We can agree that 121 never has been t00 useful, but it was 0nce unique, surely. 113 by n0 means a terrible tank, n0w what d0es it h0pe t0 achieve with 430U d0ing its j0b but with cam0 t00? 0r with buffs t0 0ther fast heavy tanks such as Kran, IS7, 0bj 260, and releasing WZ5A/277. W0uld any0ne want t0 play AMX30 n0w, with Le0pard just being a t0nne better? what TD actually d0es TD things pr0fessi0nally. except Strv? Really useful, really important. What could I have done better. After every death, I ponder it.
  12. Can you explain to me, why Mauschen is bad and people think VK01P and Maus are fine? It isn't just you, I am really curious, have heard it many times before. And from streamers too. They get to tier 8, say the VK01P is a fine tank, then get to tier 9 and the '''Chen is a complete dumpster fire, and then finally at Maus and it is fine again? I seem to be very lost, I think of them all as the same tanks, scaled up - with the small difference VK01P doesn't have their their gun handling or accuracy and its turret is centered, not in a rear mount.
  13. You posted it there. I don't edit peoples posts. I tend to my own. 1) As for the orzanel replay, it highlights a large problem snore listed. The tiers 8, 9, X EBRs are too powerful. Anyone can do that, it does not take any measure of skill. He drives around in loops for 7 solid minutes. Granted, they cannot do the same on maps like Himmels or Ensk, they are still probably better off than real bad light tanks such as manticore or panzer wagon, just because of their tire resilience and shot traps, inability to be immobilized, auto-lock feature, high pen HE, and speed to get places first. 2) He nailed the part about maximizing your efforts for results, out of a game that seems like a loss at the start because of the team's lethargy, positioning, passiveness, and fear. orzanel was just fortunate enough to be in an EBR. The battle would have had high chance of failure and/or poor performance if he was in another light tank. Every seem those lemmingrush battles where he talks 1/3rd of the game going on about terrible positioning (his teams positioning) and drives into the rear/camos up/hulldowns to use his team as distractions to garner some damage? it is damage control, in a losing effort, squeezing the orange dry to get something, anything. 3) Another problem is clear here, and it happens alot in maps like these, murovanka, malinovka, prokh.....are the massive forests. It promotes camping by bad players, as they just leap on the opportunity to sit bushed up and not do anything, and basically be spoon fed something.....anything. And as Skill4 clearly says, they are fucking pigeons. Certain 1-dimensional tanks also promote this, like Strv. in NA, it is not uncommon, to see powerful clans like Yolo, Mahou, or G, lose battles in SH, to complete shitter clans with lots of legionaries too - because they got a map like Steppes or mountain pass or fjords, and literally sat in their fucking densely forested backline right at cap. When I was last attempting to 3-mark T95E2 recruitment tank - I dreaded these games the most. These were the games, everything had to be raw damage. Instead of drinking fruit punch cool aid and grabbing 2.5K combined and everything didn't rest on your shoulders alone.....you find yourself worrying every moment are you even going to get 2K dmg and get close to remotely breaking even, and not dropping a heft%. Your team wouldn't fight for positions, wouldn't want high ground, would jumble up in a fucking corner and await oncoming doom. I could not count on a cent of assist to help. And this was the time of 3/5/7 for tier 8s too, is was God awful. Needless to say, orzie was lucky he was in that AC
  14. It is okay. Chances are I wouldn't be too keen to pay too much attention to the resident shitlord chimp, who'd probably go on talking about a tiger ll.

That makes me superior, yes? 1. Trouble shooting current gameplay flaws. 2.

  16. "Easily g0es thr0ugh a T0rt0ise" What year are y0u playing, which client? 2014? Have y0u seen T0rt0ise new m0del? Y0u have 1 171mm pixel, then the rest 0f the tank is minimum 273mm effective vs AP. I mean there is a reas0n y0u fucking didn't include it. Y0u just said that. And y0u are c0ntradicting it a m0ment later? T95 has a str0nger LFP and smaller, than E75, 705A. VK45PB. The 0nly tanks 50 120 is having tr0uble penetrating in n0n strenu0us relaxed c0mbat c0nditi0ns are Type 4, T95, T0rt0ise. 0r a c0mpletely hull d0wn 0bj 263. 243~ AP is T95 l0wer plate, c0nsiderably higher than the listed and sharply increases when sh00ting d0wn 0n it in cl0se enc0unters, making it essentially as t0ugh as Maus l0wer plate. The cup0las are incredibly tr0ll, like Types, and sh0ts n0t dead center b0unce. By the way, y0ur idi0tic T95 m0del is wr0ng t00, the side fr0nt plates shaped like triangles aren't hitb0xes y0u st00ge. Y0u have a big m0uth. And still haven't listed what y0u d0 in 12T either. By all means, c0nsider. By the way, find a T X 0f mine that d0es 1 sh0t 0f dmg per game, please d0. I have said it t0nnes 0f times, I have 1 T X n0t 3K+, and that 0ne is am0ng the w0rsst T Xs and it still is a st0ne thr0w away t00. Slightly ab0ve avg. Y0u are full 0f it. 144pen b0unces 0ff T3485M all the time. Y0ur picture sh0ws aut0 ric0chet angles 0n the turret, a drivers sp0t that is like 175+, and a gun mantlet that is a t0ss up. Pe0ple w0uldn't c0mplain ab0ut T3485M s0 much if 144 pen tanks actually penetrate it c0nsistently, like cr0mwells. But they d0 n0t.
  17. Thanks. I saw what I needed to see. Y0u were sh0t in the l0wer hull. 50mm turned flat, because y0u were reverse angled 0n a sharp m0und. Easy pen f0r 75mm HE, th0ugh a lucky sh0t nevertheless. Easy explanati0n. Th0ugh making y0u quite unlucky. That same sh0t has a chance t0 pen TVP, 121, 121B, Cent AX, STB1, UDES t00. Y0u basically thr0w a 50/50 dice, 76-80mm l0wer hull turned flat, vs 75mm pen. While definitely wrecking AMX and Le0. ....0nly E50, Fatt0n, RU meds are safe fr0m that. 
  18. It d0es have better pen tier f0r tier than 12T. 12T is n0t a heavy tank. It d0es n0t have penetrati0n like M6, VK36, T150, ARL44, 0i, KV85. Where are y0u drawing y0ur stupid c0nclusi0ns fr0m? 12T has high pen f0r a light tank, d0esn't mean it has high heavy tank pen. 50 120 has high end tier lX heavy pen, which 0nly has it -2mm pen fr0m the highest AP - significantly higher than the highest pen fr0m light tanks at 232. D0 n0t y0u kn0w h0w t0 c0-relate at all? Y0u just said the stupidest stuff ever. L0wer plate is fr0ntally met, and the 0nly tank that will really challenge 257 is Type 4. VK45PB, E75, T95, Chen, T0rt0ise, 705, 257, AE, 263 are all getting penetrated reliably with min 60% chance using 257mm pen when y0u get the chance t0 actively target fr0nt weaksp0ts. If y0u aren't using weaksp0ts, well 12T is b0uncing 0ff tanks all the time with 144 pen in tier 6 t00 s0......? By the way, 144 pen b0unces 0ff f tanks like Pudel, BiS, ARL44 and T150 and T3485M all the time. N0t t0 menti0n AT8. 0i isn't the 0nly 0ne. And 0nly y0u br0ught up tanks like cr0mwell, strv57, Sk0da T25 - I surely didn't. Which again, y0u c0mpare light tank stats t0 light tanks. Actually, sirf0ch and skill4 said the 50 120 is nice. There are links t0 th0se if y0u want. I just agree with them.
  19. 50 120 has s0me arm0ur, t0 pr0tect it fr0m tier 7. It has arm0ur t0 pr0tect it fr0m HE pen. It als0 has better tier f0r tier pen than 12T, can 0ver match many c0mm0n things (hard t0 0vermatch anything with 75) has great -GD, and unlike the Even 90 0r 12T - as a french aut0l0ader it isn't kicked in the nuts in DPM. This makes it c0nsiderably better and m0re w0rthwhile. It gets 10m VR f0r free basically, isn't screwed 0ver by swall0wed HEAT amm0 as it gets APCR and despite all the p0wercreep in tanks, still remains the fastest m0st agile tier 9 heavy tank 0ut there. 50 120 is a g00d tank, and many streamers agree. It 0nly has 1 flaw, 0nly 0ne - p00r arm0ur. Just because y0ur tank is an aut0l0ader, d0esn't mean it has t0 have trash DPM. L0wer DPM, sure. C0mparatively w0rse gun handling, sure. But n0t trash.
  20. You just agreed, because it wasn't me who said it. You are full of crap. Post pics or it did not happen. Replay please. Prog 65 has two miniature pixels, 5Omm and vulnerable to 75 pen HE. The above pic is using 1O5mm HE pen Live Model from Cent AX/121B/Prog. And shows virtually nil vulnerability. If you were hit in either pixels, it is 1-in-250 chance you were shot there, essentially. I listed the characteristics why I believe Skoda T5O is better. It is not just because I said it is better, but because of better traits. If you don't want to read them, that is on you. You can dispute the traits, sure, but arguing that I think one is better than the other ''because I say so'' is stupid shit I never said. By the way, Sirfoch, Skill4, quickybaby have all talked about tanks like armoured cars, Skoda T5O, and Sheridan - tanks with large amounts of spaced armour surface area, protecting them from HE pen which despite their thin armour, still protects them from considerably against HE attack. If you wish to believe that doesn't fucking matter, that is on you and it is not only I who believe and know it.
  21. Well, to be honest I essentially do what you said. I don't play it as a light tank at all. I shoot stuff, and play for damage, and yes aimed for 1K+. (as you said, 2-clips) And yes, it is very much a reality, in little to no effort with 2O2 APCR I avg 1,17O to be exact. Vents, GLD, vert stab. But the tank was not fun, not smooth, why? Despite being a light tank, the mobility was more of a medium, and nobody wants that. Bad gun depression with a rear turret compounding it, nobody wants that. Engine forward, meaning damaged/destroyed engine is common with front hits taken. Does a light tank fucking want that? Bad end gun disp stats for light tank, more aim-time as an issue, and bad DPM that prevents you from feeding your clip to clip out shit. There are lots of clip tanks that still have some semblance of DPM. There is no reason why tanks like AMX12T, 1375, Bat Chat 12T, Even 9O should have such poor DPM, when autoloaders with actual DPM exist, as heavy or med or light tanks alike. Even discounting overpowered Type 64, many other tier 6 tanks have 1O-2Om VR over you too, while also having radio operators. 54O alpha and pen are nice. But why can't you have T71 DPM and mobility? Why the handicap?
  22. Prog 46 > Skoda T27. Skoda T5O > Standard B Prog 65 > TVP. What we can assert from this basis is that: Standard B does not live up to expectations and effectiveness, of either Prog 46 and 65 before and after it. And because of this point, Skoda T5O being better than T27 or TVP, a tank that is commonly known to be way better tier for tier, challenges and I personally think is superior to Standard B. I never said rely on prog 65 armour. Who the fuck said that? I said it has some bonus armour not expected, that can save you here and there. And you fucking just confirmed it, by stating that .3, which means 1/3rd of the damage you would expect to take isn't taken. And are you trying to saying Standard B has turret armour, opposed to Prog 65? What? You have to show the replay. Prog 65 is not getting penetrated frontally by HE anyway any time soon, unless your HE pen is 12O+ Which although certainly exists, isn't too common. Meaning you got outplayed and shot in the flanks. Grille max HE roll doesn't break through 12O either. Which being a flank shot, is fucking moot anyway, because the same shot would HE pen even traditionally more armoured meds like T62A or 121. So you are one of those guys that cries foul after some shit event that doesn't even take place 5% of the time? Here, let me help you out with that. Actually, not me, others will do it for me: Skill4ltu: "You can go cry in a corner" "You took one for the team" SirFoch: "Captain crayon over here...." "and I cry every time" "dude, what the fuck. Fuck you man" Circon: "What!!!!" "Chat, did you see that!" Shishx: "Stop cry kid" "Duck quack" Truvoodoo: "I recommend playing IS7" - You can select any of the above. Seriously, my heart bleeds for you. My sorrow, cannot be measured. oh, and by the way, Skoda T5O protects you from that shit, why is that? Because I said why, 5 times before this post, which would not have happened to you in Skoda T5O opposed to Standard B. And you just said it doesn't matter, and it does fucking matter. Stop being a shitter, and putting yourself in shitty positions to be shit on.
  23. ....... What I am saying is purely logical. You just cannot read. You do not know to discern left from right I bet. You aren't an english major at all. And you don't proof read for work, my foot. I am not sure what you do, but you obviously don't know a thing about interpretation or communication or assertion or any prowess. I am not saying Standard B is not a good tank. Where did I say that. I am saying Standard B, is not as good as Prog 46 and 65, and Skoda T5O.
  24. Yes, it does suck. You can post what you do in an AMX12T to be more constructive. And to show me what an AMX driver should aspire to. Because doing 1.2K dmg in a 12T is going beyond just purple, and you just told me to learn how to play. With a good crew, a decent player can perform well in a piece of shit like T-34-2, as well as have 445+ VR. It does not make it a good tank by any means. That is only what a bone head would argue with 1196 DPM is terrible. And 54O burst isn't game breaking. MT25 has the next DPM at 1.6K, and can even use other guns to further its DPM way above that. AMX12T doesn't have low DPM, it has abysmally low DPM, which in the case of something like Type 64 it is almost divided by 2. That is a very big problem, seriously, what did you do in your 12T? I am very curious, because you just said 1196 DPM in a tier 6 shitter is no problem, the DPM you get a tier 3. -6 GD on a rear turret ank, with also terrible gun elevation, is terrible. 59-16 has the turret forward, so the depression doesn't bother players as much. You can 'engineer' gun depression by using your brain and terrain. Very hard to do with rear mount. MT-25, should be using either 45 or 57 anyways, and with those have -7 GD and still, and front turret. With better aim-time, dispersion, and the same lol accuracy. The horrid track traverse puts it comparable with many slow tier 6 med tank traverse. Don't even get started with how agile MT-25, T-5O-2, 59-16 are compared to it. All 12T gets, is penetration and a clip, and camo to just stay hidden while it can't spot with subpar view range. You clearly don't have a clue about tier 6. And probably tiers 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9,X too Panther isn't a good tank, never said it was. How about you read. I said it has received buffs, while tanks more deserving have not. In any case, panther is way better than 12T or AC46, by a huge stretch. Panther has HP to utilize, view range, penetration (while still able to use it with actual DPM) some armour, 2Okm reverse for a med, -8 GD, it holds a huge stock of ammo. You get the picture? Panther may still be very -meh- but it has good useful things, and quite a few of them. 12T has very select things, and lots of glaring faults.
