Ha ha, Smithy, we should be petitioning the devs that rooster tails sprayed on enemies should temporarily blind them.

Geek had me playing my ELC over lunch today, which is all fun and games until a tier 8 team decides that the two ELC's can just about handle the win on their own. (so... we just didn't win)

On that team, which is in order of XP earned, everything from the T-50-2 and down did absolutely no damage to the enemy. Not only that, but I checked ... the ELC did more damage than any tank on the team. That T-44 below my tank did less than 400 damage than the ELC that battle. Meanwhile, Geek was out for blood spotting and shooting everything like a mad man.

Not always....the ELC I play....depending on the map....as a sniper, or as fast attack. On open maps like steps I rule...and make mad money....good games I walk away alive and with 30k in profit...all that spotting and a couple of shots here and there....you never have to take a front shot with an elc...you can always move for a side or rear shot.

How the hell does 9 players on your team have only double digit EXP from a battle?
Heck, driving a tank in circles can get more EXP.

I'm sure not getting a lot of XP with the ELC yet.. but it makes me yell "YEE HAW!" and laugh out loud a bunch

I was referring to ramming other tanks with the ELC.

Good round in the ELC - I got one big punch in on each of their arti leaving both of them with less than 50 HP ... was being pursued by two lights so I couldn't get back to finish them (our arti did its job).

Got my first scouting medal with a detection on 10 tanks

Perhaps he was playing "Highway" from the south and didn't know that big ravine at G3 was there

I gotta admit.. I nerf'd myself into the abyss the first time I was on the map hauling arse in my M18.

Muffin Man and I were playing yesterday and he took off straight at it in his ELC.. I yelled "TURN!" and he swerved.. and kinda bounced through the end of it at the last moment
It is a mistake you only make once.

I've been a machine this afternoon. a money losing machine.
Some days it's just a bad idea

I am digging the KV4 though, so thanks to whoever it was that thought that might be good for my play style (which is to just stand there adn take it )
