I saved up for the AMX 13 F3 AM, tier 5 French arty.
5 battle in it, 0-4-1, I even had 4 kills in a battle and still lost.
Speed of 60km/h is very nice (vs 28km/h in French tier 4 premium arty),
does good amount of damage,
accuracy isn't as as bad as the tier 4 Premium arty,
but only have 24 shells.
MM tends to put it in some tough battles.

Well, I don't have a problem with stacking the deck like that any day of the week.....

It used to be better as well! It's one of my favorite tanks to run.

If you happen to see someone going by Kederk or com2 on Teamspeak, that's Jeremy. He ownes the TS server. Say hi.

I asked him about some of the issues some people are having.
1. You do have to be running as admin.
2. The overlay can be flaky. It works for some people, not for others. He has trouble with it on his pc, but not his wifes.

He said he popped on for a bit last night and was very happy to see a bunch of people logged on.

I am a ways off from the 34-85, but have had the credits for the panther and just not bought....looks like this is the time.

I was off and on tonight....left the game running sorry, use to just playing alone.

Just look up Adventure Rider in the clan list on the wot website and hit join
It's under the Community tab.
Smithy will then approve it.
I'll PM you the Teamspeak info now.

And remember, all, War Gaming has banned plenty of clan names for offensive or derogatory meanings, words or whatnot.

We are, and remain, the not-for-profit "Foreign Youth Yearning For Freedom" advocates and clan. (Thanks to GB's post on this page: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...=257578&page=5 ... I'll always remember that, lol)

We fully empathize with the Chinese, Iranian, north Korean and Syrian youths (and youths who just don't want to eat their Lima beans in other countries), and are just here to play the game as a break from our worldly focus.

.....those poor poor kids.

Looking forward to buying the panther tonight....I have a feeling the path to upgrades will be long and painfull.

Told myself that I wold not transfer my crew till they got 100% on their first perk....looks like they are going to take a hit tonight....and I will have to keep waiting.

Finally got to play airfield lastnight, 4 kills in the PzI IV...I have a love hate relationship with that tank.....that is the crew I was going to move to the panther....not sure if I am going to sell it tonight, or just spend the gold for a 100% crew right away.
