French heavies... theres a contradiction. The ARL 44 is decent, or atleast has a good gun. AMX M4 45 is ok, and the line gets good at tier 8 (where im currently stuck) The problem I have is when you finally get to tier 8, forget being a heavy, your a medium. o.k. gun, but paper armour... you do get speed though.

I take those for what they are. Really I am fine with public matches....I really have only 2 major gripes with the game.

1) the well know how I feel about arty....again last night I will killed on the first round by arty....and let me be clear, the first round fired by the arty at me killed me. My direct fire tanks with 100%+ crews are not this accurate. They will not see one more thin dime from me as long as arty is this way.....and I fowl mouth and let arty die on my team every chance I get...yes it is a dick move but at this point I don't care....I have one goal in this game I want to see arty die I don't care who's team it is on.

2) let the low tier tanks play all the maps.....this is just fucking stupid....why do the low tier tanks only get to play a hand full of maps....just flat fucking stupid.

I don't play any mods on the game...just the game as the game is.

Every time this happens to me I just say to my self, well i did my part, cant do everything myself, and think how much better I was in that battle then 14 other hairless apes.

I agree with #2 there but none of my artys are that good. the Grill is close but the aim time is still so long. but i don't play them much. I just want my PZIV back. Also no mods here.

I couldn't hit a durn thang with the Priest last night. The SU26 seemed a bit off too, but still played ok. I cringe every time a hit the battle button. That thing just sucks so bad. I should sell it and go back to the M41, grind the credits there to get the M40/43. I just can't make any xp with the 12.

So far, having run the Tiger P a bit, I'm not a fan of heavy play. Might be why I don't care for the Churchill anymore as well. I like TD's, Mediums, arty in that order. I didn't like any of the light tanks either.

dont worry, you will get used to missing and no splash damage with the Priest. I gave up after that and went german arty. much better.

I you let your own arty go unprotected you get every single shot death you deserve. learn to play as if arty is looking at you the whole time. maybe you should play arty so you get a better idea how to defend against it.
I rarely get killed by arty when I am in one of my heavies. not often in my m2mt either.

when people start talking shit I sometimes get my fire a bit too close to em
yesterday I got the Reaper after wiping out all 3 enemy arty in 1 shot each, just by mousing around and waiting for tracers.

Cheese and rice! Don't get him started again!

I may sell th epriest and work my way up the german line. They seem more accurate than the area denial arty of the US line.

Was in a Siegfried Line battle that had 2 American T92's on their side. The whole freakin moniter shook when they shot Check out the damage specs on that one.

ouch!


I installed 3 mods. Camera zoom (not working?), foliage reducer and DAR artillery sight.

DAR shows me a nice green box around my shot.
and my lag is up 300%.

anyone notice this lag mod with any of these?

I almost forgot with all this arty killing talk! Last night in my M7 I saw an A-20 headed my way. Decided to head for the cap, I think it was Sand river. I'm running away at top speed and this A20 is right behind me shooting with his little gun.

I put it in reverse


Just about killed him with the impact.

Awesome. I've been doing more ramming in my M7 lately. not sure why, seems like the right thing to do at the time. Also seems to be working pretty well too. Maybe I should put a spall liner in it.
