    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    Final overall stats for 2k games in the Derp 49. There might be a couple (like <20) games in there with the old 90mm HE-only gun because I didn't have free xp for it but whatever. Things I still need to work on/want to increase: Hit rate - <60% is abysmal even with a derp gun. Now, a lot of this is because i'll take low-chance shots at range/on the move/rush shots if I don't think I'll need the gun in the next 20 seconds... but I've found oftentimes that I think wrong and I do in fact need the gun, or sometimes I'll get myself spotted as a result and fuck up what i was doing. I would love to blame RNG for it... but it's really just me. Most of the time, anyways. DPG - while it is increasing from last time i checked (I used to be <1300 in it), I want to push it up over 1500. Obviously I have the capability and it might just be my large number of games dragging it down since my 3rd mark journey only really started within the last 100 battles or so... but the number looks bad. Lmao. Assist Damage per game - 800 is not very good IMO; supposedly the T49 isn't really meant to be a scout, but with almost 520 view range on the damn thing I don't think I have much of an excuse. Again this might be skewed by the large number of games I played with it where I was using eGLD instead of Optics, but it's not a stat that I've been paying attention to over time until I started tryharding for 3rd mark again I want a fucking Radleys in this thing I've come so close twice REEEEEEEEEEE. Overall, I think all of these things just come down to needing to improve my decision-making skills and maybe a bit of map/meta awareness. Regardless, I'm super happy there's a tank in this game that I could stand to play 2k battles in and get the 3 mark on and it's really the only thing that keeps me coming back to WoT. I think my next goals will be to try and get the winrate up to 60% over time, and scrape up the bonds for iVents and iOptics (probably optics first). Bonus gif (not from my 2000th battle sadly, that one was unfortunate garbage, but from like my 1994th or something)

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    Oh lmao. Nah, but I mentioned elsewhere in the thread that for my last 15 battles running up til 2k total in the T49, I was gonna run straight prem HE, max swag consumables, and a FF directive. I know I'm gimping myself not carrying HEAT too but fuck it, 3 stars I can do whatever I want. 5 more battles to go as of this post. Normally my loadout is 16/6/0 HE/HEAT/Prem

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    I'm 14 battles away from 2k battles in this little monster. It'll probably take me another two or three months to actually finish those 14 battles but for those battles I'm loading full prem consumables (plus cola), a firefighting directive, and full gold HE. Because I can.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    I'm basing my votes solely on tanks that I've actually played myself, as a disclaimer. Otherwise I'd probably end up downvoting the M103 too because everyone i know says that tank is utter garbage in current year T-10: 26 AMX M4 51: 24 T-54: 23 T49: 23 + 1 = 24 - Best tier 9 in general, no question mark needed. Hilariously fun with the derp, apparently consistent with high DPM with the small gun (heretics), the only way you'd ever really dislike this tank is if you suck at light tanks. (I will admit the Skoda T50 was my second choice to +1) Conqueror: 22 Type 4 Heavy: 22 WZ-111 1-4: 21 E50: 21 E75: 21 AMX 30: 21 T30: 20 T95: 20 M46 Patton: 21 WT Auf Pz. IV: 20 Mauschen: 20 Leopard PTA: 20 RU251: 17 Object 704: 20 Object 263: 20 T-54 LW: 20 Object 430: 20 Object 705: 20 - 3 = 17 - I'm just really not impressed with the tank so far - yes, it's got the punchy IS-7 gun but it also has the garbage IS-7 gun handling, mediocre pen, and on a rear-turreted platform to boot. The armor is somewhat reliable from a very narrow angle of facing forward but the hull shape seems to make sidescraping a much worse idea compared to the IS-M. Tier for tier, it's a downgrade IMO. ST-I: 20 Tortoise: 20 Foch: 20 B-C 25t AP: 20 AMX 13 90: 20 Skoda T50: 20 WZ-132A: 20 WZ-120: 20 50TP: 20 STRV 103-0: 20 Standard B: 20 Centurion 7/1: 18 Jagdtiger: 17 Conway: 17 VK4502B: 17 Object 257: 17 T54E1: 15 Type 61: 17 WZ-111G FT: 17 Emil II: 14 AMX 50 120: 8 M103: 8

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    Thanks! Yeah that was me the first time I was close, I hit 93.7something and then got two 0-damage games in a row, felt bad and I stopped caring for a long time, hovered around 83-87. But while checking it like a month to a month and a half ago I noticed I had broken 90 again and decided I would try for it and hopefully get there before I hit 2k battles in the tank. The dream is real E: also I finally feel like I've earned the right to change my rank on my profile to Chode$tarz

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    Thanks man! I had a goal of getting it before 1.1 and also before I hit 2k battles in it, and I'm happy to say that I achieved both goals. Also, since the last 2 or so minutes of the game were just utterly hilarious, I made it into a video for y'all's enjoyment. Unfortunately I'm not able to put Yakkety Sax over it since youtube will remove it, but whatever you can just dual video it. Featuring @Trobs getting blapped (twice), some sick nasty jukes all over the place, and a kill every 21 seconds. My main mistake was coming out from behind cover at the very end - there was literally zero reason for me to do that to let the O-Ni shoot me, but truth be told I was laughing too hard to care and I knew I had the mark at that point as I went into this battle with 94.2%. If I hadn't done that, I A. could've had a Radley's at the VERY LEAST (Mauschen had <100 hp, O-Ni is penetrable from the side with HE, and I outspot them both easily) and B. I had a decent chance of actually pulling out the win and my first and only Kolobanov's as well as this being my first three mark, as long as arty didn't get lucky. My second mistake was eating the shot from the skorp for the kill - I was lucky that the A-44 and 416 were so bad. All in all, a very fun way to cap off my climb towards third mark on this tank. I can finally do whatever the fuck I want in this tank. Or maybe I should go for 100%...

    Feels. Good.

    yeah but it's not like going even higher above 445 hurts or does nothing - burning extra camo is really useful especially with the fuckin swedish ninja TDs in the game

    I'm still here! I've recently been trying again for the 3-mark, but i'm hovering around anywhere between 89 and 93 - currently at 90.9 as of this post. here, have some gifs from the 5k damage game that put me at 90.9: https://gfycat.com/GleefulBigheartedAmethystgemclam https://gfycat.com/IdealisticDopeyLhasaapso https://gfycat.com/DrearyWhichBadger https://gfycat.com/OddShortAmericanwigeon

    IS-M - Is Serb > Murazor?

    I didn't find a thread for this tank so here goes. I've only played a few games in it so far and I refused to play it stock because lol 175 pen in tier 10 games nice meme. I'm not really going to go over the stats because you nerds can look it up yourself, I'm sort of looking for other people's thoughts and impressions on the tank itself. Do you like it? hate it? think it's mediocre? Why? Against tier 8's, it's hilariously good. The side armor is too thick to be overmatched by anything and nominal thickness tends to negate the damage you get from HE spam (which has happened to me twice). It's hard to over-angle when side-scraping since the extra T H I C C gives you a lot of wiggle room. The curved shoulders on the front are pennable if whoever you're fighting can aim for them, but there's a sweet spot angle that lets you both hide the shoulders and still poke your gun out around the corner, while bouncing everything that doesn't have 270+ pen. Turret is pretty strong and can bounce some crazy shots, and the single weakspot (the cupola) is so flat and tiny that hitting it is more dependent on prayers to RNG than on careful aiming. You can pretty much ignore any tier 7's or 6's that aren't derp guns or behind you - I've had full side-on shots get bounced before from tier 7 heavies and the like, so even if you're in the open just angle yourself a bit and you're p much good to go against lower tiers. This was my first match in it and all I did for 80% of the game was sidescrape off a building across the bridge in the south: In tier 9s, it's... okay. Against dumber players in 9's you'll generally have no problem baiting shots into angled side armor - the lower plate, of course, is butter, and anyone who knows to aim for the shoulders will ruin your shit and probably set you on fire, but the tank is new enough that it's not a huge issue yet. Otherwise, I generally found success by watching the flanks for our bigger guns in brawling zones and bullying lower tier heavies or keeping higher tier heavies constantly turning their guns to deal with me. Tier 10s are generally crap but that's standard tier 8 tank matchmaking for you. At least there's 7 tier 8 tanks on the enemy team to beat up on. I don't have a real strategy for this yet since the thing is too slow to face off against mediums and the armor doesn't work against most tier 10 guns unless you're lucky or the enemies are bad - generally I just play it the same way I do in tier 9s, but with a more conservative and cautious approach. My main gripe with it is that the mobility is a little low - but I guess that's expected with the amount of armor it has. It generally does reach its top speed on hard terrain (which is like, 35kmh i think) but you won't be keeping up with mediums or anything. Oddly enough I haven't gotten shot enough to get set on fire a whole bunch yet, and while the gun depression is as bad as expected I knew what i was signing up for with a rear-turreted tank. For crew skills, I don't have them memorized right now but I have a fairly new crew in this - I think it's Sixth/snap/ORD/safe and then working on repairs. Equipment loadout is Rammer/Vstab/Vents, I carry 20 AP/8 APCR/2 HE, standard consumable loadout of medkit/rep kit/AFE. Oh, and for the past week I had two 1500+ base xp games and that wasn't enough for an Ace. Fun stuff, clearly people out there are having a lot of success with it so far. What do you guys suggest for crew skills in the future after BiA and repairs? I chose ORD just so I can get to the brawl slightly faster, but would clutch braking be a better choice? Does it get set on fire frontally often enough to make taking Preventative Maintenance an option? How do you tend to play it in heavily tier 10 matches, or on maps where the gun depression or lack of hard cover works against you? e: lmao 504 error when I tried to post - now I understand how people keep double, triple, or even quadposting their new threads.
