Hi guys, Like many of you here I've bought myself the early access "LoW" package and now am just counting down to the 27th ... But, and this is probably unlike most of you here, I know shit about tanks. Well, pre WWII tanks are going better now thx to WoT but modern tanks are still a mysterie to me. I've been spending quite some time reading up on mondern tanks technology, but when it comes to game play I'm still pretty clueless. OK, despite my ignorance, after playing WoT we pretty much all know some ground rules: 1. shoot AP at enemies 2. shoot premium ammo at enemies when you can't pen with regular ammo. A little more advanced rules (mind boggling many can't get this logic): 3. load HE when you are a guaranteed pen on a thinly armored vehicle 4. load HE if your caliber is big enough and you want to finish off a low health enemy 5. load HE in your E-100 and ship away 300HP per shot on a hull down IS-7 until he has enough and charges you (so you switch to premium of course ) 6. don't shoot HEAT at spaced armour 7. don't shoot HE out of low caliber guns Without looking at weak spots, I think those last 2 are the only cases where you are guaranteed a non-pen. Now, in AW it's not just the tickness of the armour plating that varies, but there will be all kinds of armour: cage, reactive, applique, ... And all kinds of shell types. Sorry, no examples, see second statement ... Can any of you give some kind of run down? Something like: this ammo on this type of armour, definately not this ammo on that kind of ammo, ... Thx,
Forgive me father for I have sinned For I have played arty and further tainted my garage. So I've heard about the crazy arc of the british tier 5/6 arty and wanted to give them a go. And have been thoroughly chewed in tier 6 CW by the little chihuahua FV's and have had people recommend them and of course, I've seen replays on how fast and how crazy the gun arc is. So you could say I was Interested. I free XP'd all the way to the bishop (Didn't have enough to go through) so I decided I'd play it, thinking it would be horrific and I'd have to only do X2's for a few weeks. But I soon found out it is not at all bad. Setup: Stats so far: 23,000 XP ground out just today First game, 4 kills, 1600 damage Spoiler: Dem graphics Best games today: (*Me being good@scumbag) I do not advocate playing arty But damn, Thing reloads in 11.5 seconds at 93% crew/rammer/vents, The flight time is long and im still getting used to it. But this is the thing, It DROPS shells onto the engine deck and about 20-30% of the time you hit for 400-500 damage and a somewhat rare, you set them on fire along with that 400-500DMG
