If you were a good arty player, you wouldn't need them to be tracked first...

I bought a KV-5 a month ago.

Terrible timing, but as far as the tank goes in normal play (up to patch 7.3 at least, questionable in 7.4, maybe obsolete in 7.5) it can reward a disciplined tanker despite it having the worst penetrating tier-8 final gun.

I guess the thinking is that would have taken too much to to change it to make it as capable as other tier-8 and premium tier-8 tanks against the tier-9 mediums it will be matched against.

I hope it doesn't turn out to be a waste of money... had I owned it for a year I wouldn't mind... but one month? Two months by the time the patch comes around? I think they should think about that and offer an exchange.

I sold the Valentine yesterday, used my free experience and all my credit mining silver to research and buy the SU 26. That is a neat little arty. Unfortunately, I was hitting 2-4 fps consistantly last night and the PC was running slow, really slow. Processer overtemp shut down. Looks like something is amiss inside the case.

Slowly learning how to play the T34 heavy. Except for when do something stupid like get caught out in the open I do pretty well. Definitley a different game than a fast firing, fast moving TD.

No saturday players?
