It should be a carbon copy of the T54...minus just a tad.....but it is a game not a sim....and there is a huge difference in just that.

But if you read a little on the REAL history of the type.

I know at least one person that quit playing because he's a tank nut and couldn't stand the inaccuracies.
Moderate accuracy is fine with me. I'd rather have a fun game than a accurate simulator.

OConnor, here is your reminder.

After spending a few graveyard shifts surfing this thread, is there still a ADV clan? If so, what should I be aiming for to be able to join in the fray?

Currently I have a T49 that I am almost fully upgraded, and am working on the pos Priest right now (hoping it gets better when upgraded though I do like the damage it will do) also I am on the long grind for German mediums and heavies.

I had a huge problem with it at the start.....and still do with arty...duh....it really is world of armor....the tanks support the arty in this game....but eh, it gives me something to do when I don't feel like anything else.

Yup, fully upgraded with a rammer and gun laying drive it has a pretty fast reload time. But stop at the Priest. The M12 sucks and really isn't worth the aggravation. The M40/43 is way better than the M12, but the M12 grind took the wind out of sails for American arty.

I stopped at the SU26 on the Russian line. Fun little tank. I have a 60% win ratio in that arty, easy to turn the tide of battle with it.

Currently at the VK3001p and Tiger P in German, I'll stop at the 3001, I like the way it plays. The P is fun too, but my youngest so wants a Maus, so we're going to keep running up that line.

Have a look at the German TD's too. The Stug is a money maker once you figure out how/where to stop and hide.

I liked the tiger well enough I kept it...you just have to know how to play it.....not sure on the Tiger II....still do not have it upgraded all the way yet. I do have the pershing, but it has real problems with the tier 10 stuff...and some problems with the tier 9.

I have lived in battles in both the pershing and Tiger II got kills and done damage....and taken damage and still walked away 10k in the hole.....but I do enjoy the tanks.

On the soviet line I am grinding the T43 and it is just OK....and I am still on the JS, that is not bad. I still have a way to go on both of those.

Yes, ADV clan is alive and usually active.

Log into the WOT website, then go to this page. The application link is on the top right. Then just bitch and moan here until someone lets ya in.

Upgrade the gun first. After that, Priest is pretty excellent imho.

In general, I would discourage German tech though, cuz lol germans.

Edit: Derp, T49 is a TD.....

The Patton isn't much better. It's great fun to play and can pen most tanks I come up against, but the freakin shells cost more than my arty rounds. I lose money almost every thing I take it out. But taking 500 hit points off per shot with a medium tank is kinda cool.

I only have a 40% win rate in it. Last night I did 2 battles in it and probably lost 30k. I even ran down and killed a Bat Chat 25.

the Tiger p's appear to be good tanks. I haven't ran one but I've ran with a few, I went for the E-100, I'm half way through the XP to get it from the E-75

And anyone suffering with the Tiger 2 it's improves when maxed out. do not skip any thing on it because a lot carries over to the E-75 and it will make the last grind to the E-75 easier if you get everything for the Tiger 2.

Finally broke down and started on the German Arty line. Currently have the Sturmpanzer or something. Gun doesn't do much damage to anything other than lights. Kinda fun though, especially if I'm with a team that knows how to spot.

So, building up a pile of xp again - should I elite the E-75 by researching the E-100, or go for the Obj. 212?
