So as a little backstory I've kept my Hetzer since I started playing and have had many wins in that little piglet and many low-tier clubbing-lulz have been had. But lately I've been getting tired of it. It's clumsy, hard to play on open maps, especially when you do not have spotters. It can feel pretty delicate at times. HEAT rounds are not as effective (not that I ever used them that much in this thing). Especially as I get to a higher level of gameplay using mobility, spotting etc. it has become blah or worse. Sure, you get a few carry-hard games with you as top tier, but in general fun level has been going down. Enter the T40 last night (my second American vehicle after the T49). This thing has the T49s gun, but a tier lower. 400m view range at tier 4 (I am rolling it with optics for a dominating 440m view range), much better P/W ratio than the Hetzer and a much wider gun traverse. Plus, if you get a hankering for the old Hetzer-derp satisfaction, you can just throw on the 10.5cm HE gun on there. I've only played two games in this thing, but it is definitely a love at first sight situation. First game I was top tier and without tracks or top engine and got my 1st class mastery badge. Second game (since first was a x2 xp) I bought tracks and engine and got my Ace Tanker as a bottom tier. Bam.
