I have become a heretic, I'm actually really enjoying the 90mm over the past couple days.

Please platoon with Crab or any other chode$tar of NA server. They will show you some derp love in the first 20 sec of battle :minidoge:

Please no, I am but a simple fan of good gun handling, not bad pen, and decent dpm :(

I am sure I will return to the way of the butts before long, but it's a nice change.

 

Edit: If I'm looking to be able to switch between derping and being a heretic, what's a good combo of equipment? Currently have vstab, rammer, optics. Might invest some of my 5000 bonds into an improved piece of equipment.

Well I switched out my rammer for vents, and started running food. I have returned to the way of the derp, and I have been rewarded by nearly oneshotting a B-C 12t on my first shot, and proceeding to have wonderful RNG the whole game.

Ahhh yes.

Do you really need all that premium HE? The only difference is when you need to pen Bats frontally. Also why dont you carry HEAT? It is great to get some nasty pens on the side of some german tanks and cezch tanks frontally.

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

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)
