I almost have the VK3002 researched. A 50% cost reduction would be nice, but I won't have time to build the credits to get it.

I couldn't do anything right last night, except for the Patton. I pinned a T110somthing against a wall and pumped 6 shots into him. He was freaking out and didn't know what to do Not sure what happened, but he had his gun turned at me, but the barrel was all the way through me and his shots caused very little damage. I'd back up, take aim at his lower side armor shoot, run him into the wall usually breaking a track.

I had 3% health left after that and almost every system on my tank was dead

The "FPGT72 medal" would be for killing 3 SPGs on your own team while taunting them.

I've only seen one sheriff. On my team, KV-4 in a tier 8 match, died at 13:45 to an arty shell. Five kills later, I died and the team lost anyhow.

Screw gold, sheriff owes me 10 minutes of my life back.

Edit: Sheriff's team should get 50k silver each if he survives the match.

8.1 test is up. the interesting change is buying gold rounds with credits. exchange rate of 400c=1g. that'll be great on the main server!

Y'all seen this yet? http://worldoftanks.com/news/1685-pr...chase-credits/

Quote:
With the introduction of Update 8.1, we are planning to add the possibility of buying premium shells not only with gold but also with credits (in testing mode). By doing so we intend to give all the tankers an equal chance in the battle, so that the outcome of the game will depend more on players’ skills and experience. Thus, if necessary, any player can top up his ammo not only with standard shells, but also premium shells, which were previously unavailable for credits.
The price of premium shells in credits will be the same as the price in gold using the standard gold into credits conversion rate: 1 gold = 400 credits.
I will require an assistant to pull me into tier 7 matches so I can kill a Tiger with a Tetrarch.

I don't have a clue.

I have the KV-13 and like it, but the 3002db in front of me was faster on the flats earlier today. I haven't played the 3002.

The KV-13's gun has acceptable pen, but it's a small 85mm caliber for its tier, so... if the 3002's gun is any worse I wouldn't choose it.

I have a 3002, its decent, but the gun is the short 88, which isn't that great at tier 7.

Well, I halfway gave up trying to grind the 40k exp in the KV1s I needed to get the KV-13.
I played 18 battles last night in the KV. won 5,lost 12, 1 draw. I don't have the good 122mm on it yet, and the 85 wasn't cutting it. I ended up going back to the Derp gun.
I ended up buying some gold and converted 30k exp which totally negates point of getting the KV-13 in sale.
Oh well, I needed another tier 7 anyway.

Aiming, taking your time, and using cover is everything at the lower levels. Best of luck, and have fun. I suggest reading from this page http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....&postcount=475 and a little forward to see what we suggested for newer players.
