    Your wish is my command. And yes, I've been bad about meeting up with my local WoT peeps. 
    http://wotreplays.com/site/2533560#malinovka-crabeatoff-t49
    Here is a match from today. I am confident in Kam and co's ability to win the hill, so I go to a risky spot for a LT. The T49 has good camo though, and is JUST short enough to kinda use that terrain down there. I am not running optics at this time, but do have BiA/Vents/Food which yields enough view range to use this spot. I don't really end up spotting that much assisted damage, but thats partially because stuff gets spotted as soon as it leaves the rock and then drops back. You'll see I got first spots on 6 tanks from that low ridge. In a game with tier X meds or lots of tier IX meds, I probably wouldn't have used this position, or would have fired a lot less often. Camo lets me set up my shots (as does the corpse of the AMX).
    This replay is also a good example of how to use HEAT. Stupid wehraboo Tiger sets up against a rock, and I slaughter him with 2 HEAT pens. I shoot HE the first time because I have it loaded. If I had been running my own account with the 5 skills crew (and the loader ammo swap perk) I'd prob have reloaded for the first shot. In either case I vision pin them, completely wreck the Tiger, dunk the 1390 with a pen when he tries to yolo me, and then put one into the Black Prince's pooper because thats what the T49 is all about, the ass pens. Generally I wouldn't do this much scouting, but I trusted the platoon and surge to do the brawling. The T49 is versatile, which is why its great. Black Prince shot shows why you need to take your time to aim, same with the Tiger. Snap shots are to be avoided, use camo, vision, speed and surprise to make the T49's shots count. There is no good snap shot.
    While writing this I said to myself "I wonder if I could have penned a shot on the Type 4". Turns out the sides are 140 flat. I'll need to make sure to load HEAT for Type 4 and O-Ho (105) and O-Ni (70) in the future and go for flat side shots. E-100s are not pennable on flat ground because of the skirts, but it looks like the Japanese are. I'll have to try that out soon.
    Watch at the end to see my own arty try to end me. Shoutout to @Masta_kam and @CarryMode for this match. <3 <3

    In this match, I am demonstrating how its all about setting up the shot in the T49. Even when you can't camo or view range, ambush shots work because of the high alpha of the gun. And unlike shitter subhuman TDs, you get fun tools like a turret, and depression to set up the shots. I take a slightly more aggressive position that I would solo because I know @GymLeader_Surge will sit high in his Skoda 50 and make anyone think twice about yoloing me. See what happens to the M103 when he does try to yolo me. 
    The new crack in the rock lets me set up to the side of the brawl and be an opportunist. Unlike other LTs though, I don't have to expose for long periods of time, I can just sit and wait on the shots. I kept hoping the T29 would back out, but he was smart. The Cent however, was not, and gave me ass for days, which I immediately sunk my 152mm hot explosive ammo into. The multicrits on that kind of thing are just brutal, and he was still there when  I reloaded for an easy auto-aim snap. At some point a T71 tries to barrel in. Not how I just pick any flat piece of armor and end him. T71s and M41s are fodder for the T49 (and other T49s). 
    Eventually things do get hairy, the M103 get repulsed, but I know we have the middle run. The T54E1 was irritating me with his very presence so I derp him for good measure. Then I see the yolo fucker M103 is tucked in but in a spot I can easily flank. I give him the ole chode in the soft butt and taunt a little. You can't spell classy without ass. 
    Lessons here: with the T49 you're an opportunist, but you have tools to make good shots happen. A few posts back @no_name_cro said something about pens being few and far between, but honestly I average well over 1 full pen each game. There is lots of soft armor in the game, it just take a little problem solving to set up those shots. Sure the M103 wasn't a major threat, and that shot was nothing game winning or special, but sometimes quickly ending a hard fronted tank can really turn the tide of battle. And lots of stuff like the Rhm/Waffle series is your bitch. Go for the big pens and when those aren't an option you can always harass. Like class, you cannot spell harass without ass, and the T49 loves the ass.

    Here is one more to show you how pen is love. I don't like to brawl the south too much in the T49, the exposure windows are too punishing for the long aim-time. Plus we send good numbers there, and they hold vs a numerically superior force while our ice road pushes. Staying in middle gives me lots of options to relocate. So I try to spot across mid, hoping to catch an easy shot, or camo bomb someone on that little hill. Additionally anything that goes into the riverbed is usually fair game for the T49 because -10 degrees of depression and ENGINE DECKS. Nothing goes down though and once I get a good count of tanks (minus the wily but ultimately relocated Lorraine), I decide to get cheeky (ass cheeks of course). Its pretty clear the south is super brawled up, and so I go right in and fuck up the M103. 830 in the side, he turns his turret, and bam, top tier heavy out of the game. That single shot alone more than offsets the MM weight of the T49, which is why its so great. 
    I fuck around missing an easy shot on the T71 and basically linger, but with an eye towards fleeing. I know I am in a vulnerable spot, but I have a little back-up across the riverbed. When the 50 100 finally decides my stupid ass has hung around long enough he charges, I am sure I'm done for and decide to try to make use of the hill and his awkward depression/elevation to try to get 1 more shot in before he clips me out. However my darling T25/2 friend plinks him once or twice which is enough to get him to tuck in. I poke around a little more, find his rear panel and give him the ole hot 152 while our clicker finishes him. Sorry bro, you should have yolo'd (you'd prob still have died).
    I might have made it out alive with the 50 100. I might have been able to flee into the river towards our guys? Prob not, its all about reading what the pubbies will do, and making them pay (like the 1390 in the first game). With creative driving and hitting your shots, sometimes you can pull off miracles. In either case, I was able to live and then go rush the T54E1 and give him the ole ass pen. I view those closing moments full HE pens to be the T49's reward for a game well played, where proper use of vision/camo/derp harassment/punishing softies/turning turrets yields a win, and then you get to hilariously finish off the last couple tanks because you can go 72 kph and hit stuff for 910.

    Hi.
    So uh, I've been out of the loop lately because of summer classes and etc, but out of the blue I checked my phone and was told that a bunch of people had left Bulba and that I should leave too and join their new clan.  So I just kind of hopped on the train...
     
    I still had no idea what was going on, and I still haven't really taken in whats happened, Bulba has been my home for the past year and now I'm really disorientated.
     
    And honestly it was a decision I really didn't want to make.  My main source of community is a skype chat with "Seal Team Shinobu", and 90% of them had left for the new clan.  I wish this didn't happen to begin with, but I kind of have to follow the people that got me into Bulba in the first place. :l  I didn't leave Bulba for any other reason than to follow the people I probably talk to the most in the game.
    Also everyone knows that I never really met any requirements for Bulba or really contributed anything other than memeing on kids, but at the same time I probably reaped the most rewards that I didn't deserve.  Over the past year I've gone from a no-name-green-trash to a teal-who-pretends-to-be-relevant, and from having one tier tens to 6 tier tens, pretty much 100% funded by Bulba and zordan skirmish teams...
    But over the same year, I've kind of screwed myself over in real life, and got thrown out of my major in college, and this coming Fall I need to do well to get into my backup major.  So tanking it easy for a while is probably a good idea.
     
    But yeah, I'm pretty grateful for all the people I met in Bulba, the amount of things I've learned, the opportunities I've had, etc...  I was probably the luckiest most spoiled teal on the server.
    Honestly I'm still not even sure if I've made the right decision, it's literally been one day, so in case I realize I've made a grave mistake...  Don't for get about me, token teal tom times.  :^)
    Because I'll never forget Bulba.

    I'll stop now.
