Wow, I best get sending some rounds downrange in the M12. With the discount, I should be able to get the m40/43........NOT! I still have 1/2 way (almost 80k) to go with xp. Fookin thing only pays 3-500 xp per battle.

I can see selling the MatildaBP and getting a Jagdtiger 8.8 though.

Result of 5:3:1 platooning with Smithy and Recoil.. Good times..

Had a good game in my Bat Chat 155 for once, ally team was down 4 to 6 with less than 4:00 to go.

I had 70 seconds of reload time, so I rushed across to cap enemy base.

Once I got on cap, I took out two enemy arties Tank mode, by turning my turret and hiding behind buildings at their cap.

The MAUS was down to 7% HP so I took him out with 1-shot also.

Battle victory with 76% cap on me.. and a Reaper award.






If not for that turning turret, I would have been dead for sure.

IMO, playing as an arty, the BC155 does not dish out enough damge.

But as a TD hiding behind solid cover, it can dish out good amount of damage.. or whipe out the remainders with low HP... as long as its 4-shot-clip is fully loaded.

if the SPG's and T9 tanks are going on sale, it's a real good thing I didn't buy my GWTiger and IS7 last night before seeing that information

I see the tier 9 & 10 sale as a promotion to get more players onto premium account.
Tier 9 & 10 plays in random battles are big credit losers if you do not have premium account, vehicles are not nearly as effective without premium ammo, detroyed vehicle can cost a forture to repair, especially when you lose a battle.

If anyone want to stock up on gold before the weekend for premium ammo purchase or reset crew skills; group buy offer still available, PM me if interested:

6500 gold for $29.95 (217.0 gold per dollar)

Gold will be distributed as bonus code emailed to your PayPal account.

Multiple units can be used in one account.

Anyone interested?

Do Priests ever get "fair fights"?

EVERY round I've ever played with my priest I've been at the bottom (tier 4) vs. Tier 6-7-8's.

Geek, IMHO you're looking at it completely wrong.

Ideally any arty would WANT the biggest, slowest tanks as targets while having a fast reload and aim time on their arty. The balance being becoming too small to matter or even damage with tiny HE rounds vs. very big tanks...

You, instead, seem to be asking for a battle with nothing but scout tanks to come melt your ass... I fail to understand why.

Get it out of your head right now if you think your worth, and your goal, is to kill tanks in arty. A professional arty player does the damage to tanks, but leaves the chancy last kill-shots (they could miss, where-as some other more full health tank could be waiting on your full damage and the HE killing the crew) for other tanks since arty's full damage and reach is much more useful elsewhere.

-------

In other news, I've found that the T-28 Prototype is the CHEAT tank to have. If the team works with it (or at least stays alive long enough for it to make it to them) and protects its sides, it will melt all tier 8's in a tier 8 battle, it can push through tier 9's pretty well, and I've found it even frontally pens tier tens pretty well.

I platooned up with a friend who owns one and we sat at base for a tier-8 match to both cover the valley and to protect the base. Well, the team lost it ... everywhere... and he, I, and a T-44 medium were now facing seven enemies, four of which were tier 8's at full health (a Super Pershing, a 59, a IS-3 and and T34, plus a 3601, a Jumbo and their arty). Most of them arrived at our base at the same time from the town side, yet we cleared them all out eventually.

I've had a few over 5,000 damage games in it over the last three days, with one game having done 5,545 damage (we won that game, but my team has lost a game where I did just over 5,000 damage when in the T28 proto, too).

Well crap. Now you've gone and done it. I've had that thing researched for ages but have avoided it because it's so slow. Now I might have to get one.
I need to save up some silver and free exp, but I think I'll move my Hellcat crew up to it when I get it. I've been sucking in that thing lately anyway.

Nice to know...I always thought artys job was to hit the tanks you take down to 2%....and it is even better if the two tanks are in a bear hug....that way the arty round will damage you as well as your enemy....heck you might even get killed, but it will not show up as a -1 because the arty player took out an enemy.

You also have to master the key words that every arty player needs to know....Sombody scout....someone stay behind and protect me....guard the arty and we will win.....there are others, but I am tired and it is early....you will learn.

Also fast arty is handy so after the tanks damage all and you pick up the kills you can run down and pickup some capture points as well.

.....i kid....well, there is a bit of truth in there somewhere

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I actually got to play about 4 games last night....ranged from tier 2-7 and in every one of the games there was zero arty....and they had to be some of the best games I played in a very long time.

I got Confederate in the SU26 again last night. No need to thank me, just doing my job

Oh, and when I got TK'd by an FM105 as he killed both myself and the T14 I was bouncing with, he got a -1.

It's a game. If it frustrates you, then you should stop playing.

I came around a corner in Fjords last night driving the Patton and there was a T92. We shot at the same time. We both died. There should have been a deep crater where that thing hit.
