I couldn't tell the difference on the Obj 212. But then again, it didn't have any mobility to nerf in the first place.

Hooked up with a HAVOK player this morning, 3 straight losses followed by 18 nearly-straight wins, only separated by a Draw in the middle of those 18. Hey, at least I finally got some quality WoT time in. Still haven't played the SU-122-44 I bought two days ago :-(

I like my ST1. It's pretty good. I can do 3k damage, get 1 kill, the rest of the team blows ass and I still usually better than break even.

Then there is the battle we win, somehow, I do 300 damage and lose 11k.
Really not sure about some of these wins. I don't think they are caps as I should notice that, and the other team still has players left

ah well. the important thing is my 2x did NOT come on one of my 3500 damage battles, but on the 300 battle. fucking every time.

Hell, I may have to buy back my E8 I just sold, if they're offering +100% credits... wonder how long that would take to profit from.

Dave, I have to say that I'm even more in awe now of your 5 day pass through the Proto than I was then......grinding 10K xp/day is about as much time as I can make. I can't imagine grinding 30-40K per day.

I noticed I got extra silver last night on the Cromwell "for event" but I couldn't find anything that paid extra on that? Maybe it's because I rammed and killed a KV2

I unlocked the SU100 too. Not sure if I'm going to buy it or not.

Looks like I'll spend the weekend playing the T25at (and E8) and trying to get my win rate past 40%

I was *cough* unemployed, lol.

And dedicated since that tier 9 sale was starting in something like 4 days.

I also had a clan mate or two who were grinding tier 8's, so that helped (a little - sometimes having a platoon slows the grind down), and the Proto eventually had the biggest gun, so I'm guessing that helped me to keep earning big XP for each battle. Premium is a must, of course, and some use of Gold rounds when facing tier 10's is as well.

It was a fun challenge (actually, it was sort of grueling) that I hope to never have to do again

I think it's incredible that you remembered that I wrote about it at all, lol. That's kinda cool.

IMHO, SU-100 is the high point in the USSR TD line. It's well worth garage space. Get the 100mm gun asap, and do not upgrade to the 122mm.

It's kinda been my inspiration to grind out the T32......if I'm lucky, I'll be done with it and have the M103 unlocked this time next week (2 week total grind).

I actually liked the 122 on that one, but to each his own.

You guys would have to make 465,250 credits plus half the cost of the component upgrades before you would start turning a profit.

I haven't played them all, so I've only seen the 704 in action... but I used to think the very same until I mistakenly went into a few battles with the 122mm that I took off, then put back on and forgot about. Now I'm not sure if either is 'better,' but I've been doing just fine with the 122. The 100mm snipes better, that's for sure.

That's still pretty respectable! With a full-camo crew and a camo net (perhaps binocs as well) I got by sorta fine with the 120 mm Gun T122 gun on the M103, by sniping from big distances, until I ground up to the 120 mm Gun M58. It wasn't perfect, and I would have won more with the big gun from the get-go, but it didn't seem to be at an all-out loss for dealing damage to enemies.

I'm always annoyed when I find myself up against one of those....

I plan to free xp the T122 before I play the tank, then grind the rest. I'd have to reset my skills to get camo on the crew....not going to do that unless 1/2 price skill resets pop up soon. That crew is right at 80% on their second secondary, so I'd need to spend gold to do a reset. The points hit is just too big to do it any other way.



Unless I switched my spare TD crew over to it......

You may be fine with what you have, but by all means don't treat it as a brawling tank with the smaller guns. With the biggest gun... don't treat it as a brawling tank either, lol.
