    Marine's Simple Replays

    Hey guys! Many of you already know me, but here's a quick rundown. I'll never be one to pump out 3 MOE's on my tanks. Im just not capable of shitting out huge amounts of damage across several battles in a row. Part of that is my play-style. Im more comfortable in a positioning engagement, than I am in a fast-twitch brawl. This can limit my ability to earn those 3 marks. Its good enough to get two, which I have on most of my tier 8+ tanks which I play a lot. Apart from turreted TD's which Im just learning how to play, I feel like I play all classes of tanks well enough and consistently enough. I play tier 5+, and will post replays across tiers 5 to 10. I stream from time to time, and will upload highlights to YouTube with commentary, or will record and post replays with commentary as well. From time to time I will do a replay pack of a specific tank. I did that last really a year ago when I did a 20 game each tier 10 challenge, with the BatChat highlighting that challenge while doing an average of 4k+ DPG across 20 games, and all of my other tier 10's well over 3k DPG. Right now, Im doing a "Padding" challenge, which means Im attempting to stay interested enough in playing well enough to get my recent over 3.5k WN8 and keeping over 65% recent WR, almost all solo and playing tier 8+ tanks. This means a lot of E50/M, BatChat, T55A, AMX 30p, IS7, CDC and my guilty pleasures, the T-34 (Tier 5 RU) and ELC AXM. Recent T-34 highlight from my stream Recording a replay with Commentary Current Favorite tanks in each tier 5: T-34, ELC 6: T-37, Bromwell, M44 7: E-25 8: Jp2, CDC, 13-90, learning to love the IS3 again 9: T55A, AMX 30p, VK-4502B, E50, M53/55 10: BatChat, AMX 50B, E50M, Leo1 Sad Fact: I do better in the T55A than I ever did in the 140, 62A, and T-54. Like, my DPG in the 55A is about 2800, while my 140/62A is around 2100-2300, and T-54 is just above 1750... Do not come here for RU Wedge replays I also watch these guys, specifically just to learn.

    My experience: The gun worked, great. Armor was shit. The Armor worked, great! The gun was shit. When both actually worked? Mega fucking carry bitches

    P.44 Pantera....tier 8 MM

    Finished my Pantera with a 81% WR, 2174 DPG with about 800 assist. Tank was comfortable, if a bit slow, to play. Still enjoyed it even with the shit-tastic constant tier 10 battles. It handles itself wonderfully

    Standard B game play, plus the lower tiers from the tier 4 and up, coming soon. Yes, I ground this line from the tier 4. Barf

  15. Seriously, this thing took WAY to long to get MOEs on it Recent Mastery from my Live-Stream (First battle of the day, even) Tank is pretty impressive, and worth the rewards. Challenging to play at times because of the lack of hull armor, but its a positional tank which I appreciate

  17. I will update this OP as discussions are made and tanks are added/removed from either the tech tree or gift shop. Each tier (5 through 8 ) will be broken into 4 groups Group 1: BUY BUY BUY! If you see this tank, and can get it, do it Group 2: The Average. These tanks don't stand out, but they also don't fall flat on their face. Worth a buy if you already own something better Group 3: Can be fun? These tanks don't appeal to everyone, but do have redeeming qualities and meme potential. Only buy if you need a very specific trainer Group 4: No. No. No (the Family Guy 'Consuela' Group). The ultimate shit-gift group Notables: WG is releasing a couple new prems over the holidays. I have no idea what they are or how they play, but I should be getting many of the newer premiums gifted by WG to my account to review Many of the tier 5 and 6 premiums, I never owned or I owned them when I was a REALLY bad player Some tanks have only ever been released once, such as Beta Tanks or special events and are left off for that reason (But, if SerB needs $$$ they will release them again... coughcoughMutant6coughcough Tier 8 premiums are a special group, and will be broken down further than the other tiers. Tier 5 Tier 6 Tier 7 Tier 8
  18. @Fulcrous hope you dont have a reference 2080!

      I have an MSI so I'm good. Would never get reference cards.

  20. In short, yes. In more detail: WG's API does not differentiate between Base EXP and Premium EXP. So, for example in my garage my M4 has something like an average of 600exp. My Type T-34 has like 1000. The difference being the M4 I played while having no premium time so lower overall EXP, while the Type t-34 I played while having premium time. This is why you wont see WN8 use EXP as part of your overall WN8 score: its MUCH too biased towards those using premium time, which isn't related to your actual tank performance

    60TP Lewandowsasdffsffdggsdf appreciation thread

    Idk... I mean, whats not to like about having .33 acc, -8 depression, 15 second flat reload(3k dpm), 98mm pen with HE, and workable turret and upper front plate armor? This tank is everything I wanted it to be. Its the perfect pub tank if you're looking to play a bastard child of a WZ5A+E100. Smacks hard thats for damn sure. Im no where near @Kolni's level, but playing 40 battles w/ 65% WR and 3257 DPG plus another 20 or so CW/SH battles its just comfortable for people who like that role. Its good enough for #4 by DPG in VBAddict (Cause like, that totally matters!). Setup: Vstab, Enhanced Rammer, Vents Consumables: Large Med, Large Rep, Food, FireFighting bond crew skill (Will mean you burn for about 200 damage) Crew Skills ATM: BIA, Reps, 6th, and Gun Handling/Firefighting where applicable. Next will be View Range and FF again. What I dont like: View Range (My crew is at 2.7 skills, so no vision skills yet) is about... 430? So, not enough. Ammo Count: The final accuracy means you're taking more shots than you should TBH, and Ive gotten down to 3-5 rounds remaining a couple times. HEAT Pen: Its "only" 317, but that just introduces a lot more RNG into penetrating a Super HT or TD. Your final accuracy helps, but RNG Overall: 8/10 for Pubs, and 5/10 for CW. I think other tanks like the 5A and 277 are simply stronger all round, and the Super Conq is a certain staple. I think this slots comfortably behind them when it comes to Pubs for a HT. For CW, its been fun to pair with a Super Conq given the same general speeds of the tank. It could work well against a Type 5 as it'll trade better if you're penning your shots, but again RNG. Worth the grind? Sure. It took me about 1.5 weeks to get from tier 7 to tier 10, and even playing pubs during all of it I never rage quit an evening

    China - meds or lights?

    The only CH MT I found worth was the T-34-1, but that was back when I was watching EJ have the time of his life playing it. LT: 59-16 is fun, but thats it
