2 rounds per minute, and easily3/4 of the maps I have been put on are the horribly mountainous types where it's useless.

it doesn't hit any harder than my GWPanther. and accuracy seems to be the suck, but I'm using the Panther crew without retraining so I think they are at 83%. I dont want to commit gold to training if i can't stand the tank.

I have played no German arty that was able to be judged until the crew was at 100%. Pay the Silver to get the crew to 90%, and let them train up to 100% on their own. At the moment it's still on sale to retrain crews, so it should be 10k per crew member until the end of the day.

I was just trying to finish off some extra tanks x5 I had lying around, so I went for two awesome games in the T29 where it came down to one idiot, each time, on my team who did manage to lose it for all of us. Of course the game I finally get the x5 for was one that I got stuck nearly all game and only ever got one shot off for.

I hate this game.

Do they still have training modules to get through for beginners?
I think you get a free premium tank after completing the training.

If I had to start over from tier 1, I would have done a few things differently.
Start playing SPG earlier can let you learn maps (safe spots) quicker than playing tanks.

Had one hell of a game on the new/old PZIV S tonight. 7 kills 9 damages one spot and only got hit once.







I'm loving this tank.

One more new to the stable: the KV-4

I hesitated a long time to grind it, but with the free premium for that account I took the opportunity to grind the 20k or more I needed from research it from the KV-3 today.

I only bought it because I've seen a clan mate's experience with it (his was fully upgraded though, while mine only has the next to last gun on it), and it seemed like a tank I would be happy enough with.

I had to sell two tanks, plenty of stored modules, ammo and whatever else to afford it.

I actually made it through an entire battle with the Patton last night where I didn't get hit and I got a few shots in on some tier 10's. It pays out nicely as long as you don't die. I let my son play it as he has mostly French and Russian tanks. So what does he do? He runs down a BatChat25, rams him, kills him and gets Kamakaze

Busy weekend, so I didn't get much play time. I tried just using up my x5's, but couldn't pull off wins in everything. I did get the 90mm on the M36, I bough thte gun and installed it and went to load ammo, I had a bunch left over from the Patton I think. My depot was full and there's 44 gold rounds too. I must have bought them when they were on sale or something.

Certainly were a lot of British tanks on. Most of them didn't perform all that well.

M48A1 researched!
Now I just need the 6M silver to buy it.
Hopefully I'll have 45k in free exp to get the big gun by the time I have the silver.

Hey Skid, I sent the replay of that KV-1S battle to Ebein. It will probably take him a few days to get it converted and posted because he just bought a house. I'll post it here when he gets done with it.

For future reference.....the 122mm BL-9 cannon on the IS-3 is really useful when you remember to use AP rounds instead of HE rounds.......

The funnier part about this was the conversation over teamspeak as we were doing this....
