I try to stick in groups but more often than not when peeking around a corner to make a shot, I get hammed for 1/3 or more of my hp first hit and everyone else leaves me out there to die alone while they hide.

While fast, I am not impressed with the gun or durability.
I have more fun with my Churchill. Which is good cuz it finances the IS3.

Didn't play at all during the week, few battles on the weekend worked out nicely:









Still managed to pull out a win against 6 enemy tanks remaing:

I'm sure I'm being paranoid here but it seems the closer I am to the next tank up the line the crappier the team I get stuck on. Usually the last 1000exp to the next tank takes me half a dozen games!

I hear you loud and clear.....took me 10 matches to clear the last 6000 xp to my IS-3.....and I saw where it could have taken longer if not for a few lucky shots.

First I want to thank uall for finding another way for me to waste my valuable and limited free time. ADV was not enough, now I have to Kill 15 or 20 13yr olds nightly or I feel incomplete
Now what I want to know is do we have a Clan or a company? Im tired of getting my ass killed in public matches because everyone runs around like ferretts on crack
I play tier 2-5 arty 1 because i had a slow puter 2 im old and slow and 3 i love the Fist of god effect
I am available after 7pm cst weekdays and odd times on the weekends and would like to platoon with a td or med to cover my back.
My WOT name is OLDNX
Good luck and let the carnage begin

I found that the 3601H makes twice as much money as a 3001p

If you enjoy lower tier arty play, you should really try a SU-26,
or a Lorraine 39 L AM if you plan to grind up the SPG tree up to higher tier.
Since only the French has a premium SPG tank available, on sale through the gift shop this month even, it would have better credit earnings per battle, allow crews to be used without performance penalty. Faster crew training means by the time you grind your way up and researched the tier 8, Bat Chat 155, your crew is likely going to have 350% training (100% plus 2 skills/perks and 50% on the 3rd skill/perk).

Better credit earning ability of premium tanks also allow you to play higher tier non-premium tanks without too much worry of loosing cash in each battle. Especially those SPG rounds at $1600+ each and repair costs of $26k if your vehicle is destroyed in battle.

I currently do not have a premium WoT to allow 3-player platoon, but usually I try to avoid having my platoon players playing all SPGs.
Wolfpack Type 59s have great impact on battle win/loss... but not so much for arty platoons.

Up to the M4/E8 now, quite a bit of fun. Going to grind my M4 for the m4/E2 jumbo. 26k away. The wife doesn't handle the faster tanks very well...women drivers so grinding soviet for the kv1. She certainly does better with slower driving tanks with the whole turret view. I'm just thrilled she likes playing.

I tend to play my M2 MT more than my IS3. teams are usually so bad that I lose money regularly in the IS3. Also picked up m41 arty today to replace the horrible priest. I think my overall survival rate is 28%, win around 49%. I dont put too much import on those numbers since things like arty rely heavily on a decent team out front.

The 3601H will be the next tank to be nerffed. I had forgot how tough it really was until the last two weeks. I've been making my coins to support the bigger tanks with my PZIV but with the loss of the long 75 in 8.0 me and Standstrong have been running the 3601 a little more. Two of them in a platoon that know how each other think are quite a hand full. a 3ed in there would be down right mean.
