Huh, good thing I only got Teir 2 so far.


Can someone explain the detection thing?

I feel like I drive around when there's nothing there, then all of a sudden there's ten of them around me and I get gunned down god father style.

Seriously, read this or at least the parts you have questions about. http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/Battle_Mechanics

Detection is pretty complicated.
I think part of what you are seeing is radio range.
If you suddenly enter one of your teammates radio range and he is spotting tanks, they will suddenly show up.

In the higher tiers, it doesn't happen much because everyone has longer range radios.

Thanks FPG, I just read through that post you made - very informative.

I"m guessing that with all those changes that perhaps some of the larger tanks mentioned might go on sale afterward, so I'm going to wait to buy anything substantial. I could move to a Pershing right now I think, but here's hoping it's a rare higher-tier sale coming up!

I guess I'll sell my Marder before the patch

I think I'll buy a AMX12T again for the free garage slot.

That is what I am going to do....I hated that tank as well....played it for a while...I think I still have the crew, I wanted to get to those speedy hard hitting french tanks, but that 12T just killed me.

If you guys are looking for a tier III TD along the lines of the Marder check out the prem french TD tier III....only difference between it and the marder is the french is DOG slow....very slow....stupid slow....well you get the idea, but it does not have to be fast it had a death ray for a gun, and not it looks like it will rule in that class....we will see. But it is a prem tank but it is not that expensive IIRC.

I bought it after getting zapped by it more then once....from a mile away. It makes good money as well and costs nothing to repair.....just a thought...but it does cost gold.

Loved the 12t, will probably buy it again here soon as well for that extra slot. Problem is that I don't have a slot for it... I have a 13 75 that I really like.

I'm installing the 7.5 test server updates right now. Anyone else? (This 400 or 500 Gig hard drive was a great idea to update my older system... at least I have room for multiple clients... used to only have an 80 gig HD, lol)

The AMX38 is the worst tank ever created. I now hate the French. Good wine, crappy tanks.

Tighter matchmaker spread for v7.5, looks like my MS-1 is going to dominate again:

That better describes the B1.....at least the AMX 40 gets a 75mm gun.

Took that long to get done loading and installing updates for the 7.5 test server, but I forgot that the Russians seem to get first-dibs on the test servers... always a lot of them on, so now I'm fighting a que system that doesn't work, lol. Typical War Gaming.

20 minutes later, I'm in! Test out the new tier 5 french light tank

WTF is with the Tier 5/6 Light spread.
Tier 5 goes up up to 12, but Tier 6 doesn't????

I can see the T-50-2 doing it, but not the others.
