Looks like My oldest is going to be happy, he's got both the ELC and the Chaffee.

Looking at the Black prince deal. Any comments on it? I'm thinking of selling the Churchill and getting that.......for now

That's crazy. One helluva tank, though.

I bought the Black Prince with the gold I got back from a few camo schemes when 8.0 launched. So far I really like it.

It has to be the slowest tank in the game, but other than that it can do quite well for its class. Overall i'm very satisfied with it and play it way more than any of my other tier 5 premiums including the church.

5 Mil, is my cuttoff point. as long as I have that I will buy whatever I really want....it is a nice buffer. I also keep at least 20k in free xp, but now that I am getting into the higher tiers I see that is really not enough. So I just decided to grind...I look at it this way by the time I get that 100k exp that I need for the next tank this crew should be gods....but then all the other crews will be the same....so what is the diff again.

I had 4mil and a shitload of free xp. Then I got the patton and upgraded it. Still needs the turret and engine. Still losing money on it, but it's nice to be able to penetrate tier 9 and 10 stuff

I was buzzing around in the ELC and AMX12T on my sons account last night. The ELC can be fun, at least he has a 100% crew. I need to work with that boy a bit, he buys tanks and doesn't upgrade or train anyone. Anyway, he's more focused on light tanks and heavy's. I'm more Arty and Mediums. He has decent game play, but his equipment needs work.

So I decided I wanted an M18 (for zipping around at 71km/h) and ground (grinded?) from tier 1 through to tier 5 last night on the american's top row (up through the T49).

I was supprised by the Teir 4 M8A1. That thing is pretty effective for my game style in Teir 4! Really enjoyed it.. I might have to fill it out.

Looking at the Premium 8s.. which is the tank of choice? They're all SOOOOO SLOOOOOOOW

Since the Type 59 isn't on sale right now, T34.........but wait to see if we win the Golden Joystick next week, because it will get discounted if we do.

All this talk of ELC's finally goaded me into getting one last night. Hoohaa, that thing is fast. Worth all of 2 shots unless you find a good hidey hole and don't move, which is nearly impossible with that crap pseudo-turret.

Getting massive points for scouting, though, and having a blast at 80kph.
