Man, can't win anything with the AMX12T since 8.0. Haven't lived through a battle since. Keep on getting mowed down by tier 9-10 tanks that are as fast, but 100x the armor and gun.

So now we have to reload HE shells to fight our own team at the cap... great. I've already experienced a T-50-2 from my team ramming the side of my platoon mate's and my TD's to reset our cap.

The other day I had two KV-1 that were platooned and on my team push me into a lake and drown my crew. They also did it to another teammate before a JgPanther killed them he became blue and they were try to tell everyone that he was the TKer. Really sucks since since they did not shoot me or the other guy they never turned blue.

There's a reporting button for "causing team damage" and another for "unfair play", I suggest using them vigorously, by the whole team, against such hooligans.

Dunno. Just reported a T34 that pushed me out of my sniper-hole, so he could have it. Gus-something. Fucker.

And why isn't this a 5-star thread, anyway?

Of the three similar AMX's the 12t is the dog of the group because it's too slow even with max crew, bia, off road & vent.

The best of the trio is the 75. The 90mm is great gun wise but the reload keeps you out of action for a year. The 75's movement & reload speed make it a joy once you get use to the passive camo scout starts->sniper spam-> slashing breakthrough at the right moment.

Because so many mediums are almost the same speed, you really need a max crew. The amx12t+ is harder to play now. Weve gotten quicker off the line in 7.5 and 8.0 but the physics make it much more difficult because you can't pin or box anything anymore.

I only got to play for about 3hrs this entire weekend....and had this same thing happen to me twice....first time I let it go...second time I drove very nicely away came around behind him and put a 120mm up his ass. I am surpised you have not gotten a nasty gram on me on that one....if it was not for the other TD that was there I would have been labeled a TK'er....figures the arty player that I was next to said nothing....but anyway.

In those 3hrs I did make about 600k silver in the su85 on the silver bonus weekend....that is nice....the new 8 has had some problems...people doing swan dives off of cliffs and such...had a few matches where people jumped to their death from the light house, and I did fall into the frozen lake on one of the artic maps....the ice even broke...nice touch.

Over all I think it does add to the game, but there are a few asses in there....did not see the cap reset thing tho.

I haven't had anyone pull those shenanigans on me. Hopefully I can avoid it.

Still trying to figure out how to drive a heavy. I always thought all they did was drive really slow to somewhere and shoot at things. Last night in Himmelsdorf I had a KV4 pinned into a building and I shot him 4 times point blank without penetration. 2 shots I even backed up a bit and aimed just below the tracks on the side "Just dinged him" GAH! After that battle I transferred some xp and got the long 88

After buying the Tiger P I need another money making weekend

Again I will say i have pushed a team mate off a cliff, but he arrived after I had parked and when i moved 3 times he blocked my shot each move by moving in front of me again. So i pushed him of the cliff. I haven't heard anything about it so i guess I didn't get reported.

Nice. A week or so ago I saw a leopard or other pointy scout ram an arty that was against a building at max speed and it rotated the arty about 60 degrees vertically as the scout dived underneath.
