This is news to me (regarding credits earned from a battle): "Every tank who is inside the Enemy Base Circle at the time the Base Capture is completed (reaches 100%) receives a flat rate bonus. It does not matter how many points you contributed to the capture everyone inside the circle gets the same flat rate bonus."

This would be correct.

Are you having trouble finding people to platoon with in your current clan?
Stuff like zoom, interface, cross hairs in sniper, etc...

I run most of the mods in THIS LINK.

Advanced Minimap works really well for SPG:

I think overall I'm at 48% win. Almost completely in pub matches.

Every time I'm in the T25at, I figure I'm on the losing side. I can't carry the team myself and my win rate is in the low 30's, so by Mambo Daves explanations, I'm not worth a pinch of poo to any clan. Yet, I'm one of the last to die in battles and generally have good damage points inflicted.

I'll get told it's my play style. But I counter with the Stug. Exact same play style, except a 64% win rate.

It's too bad they can't have separate tier level clan wars.
I used to lead many an attack with the T25 AT. The T25 AT is somewhat known as a offensive-support TD in that it's far better to help push with it just behind the main push... but we all know how some really bad teams don't push any flank. I know it goes against the rules of TD's, but people will generally help a push if someone with some leadership ability leads the way, and in the T25 AT that was commonly me (like 30 or 40% of the games - so not most games, but far more often than in a German TD).

It is what it is.

That's crazy. I don't even see how that could be that way if some guys rack up an Invader award with the points they captured while someone else didn't... but I can see reasons for some to earn more by fighting for that cap opportunity, too.

I think you'd be surprised. Some have a lot of politics inside them, and some have very little. And there's no way of telling what will annoy you until you get into an organized clan and stay a while.

Some European commanders' voices, alone, annoy me a little. Part of that is after playing so many PvP games and war-based games over the years that I've come to believe that Americans are pretty good at warring compared to many parts of the world if online players and online commanders are any indication. Too, a good British field commander is a rare bird indeed. I'm not claiming Americans are the best as I know of some groups from Eve Online that were beyond excellent, but I forget what odd countries they came from. Brits still sucked. 99% of Spanish speaking players seem to not be good at anything in PvP gaming, but I've never even been in a group/clan/corp with one.

In a clan I don't want yelling as a communicative tool by a clan or battle leader but, as far as politics is concerned, I fully understand if 60% players don't want to platoon with me. I probably won't ever be a true 60% player since I get tired and end up doing stupid stuff some nights.

I'm real tired from really long shifts and a few different things that came up that meant getting a lot less sleep over the last three days...

So in my stupor, before I went to bed, I did something really dumb.

Ok, so, yeah, I played my T34 premium really badly and probably lost that battle (I never checked). Then I played my Churchill 1, tier 5, somewhat badly and by some miracle ended up helping cap it out for the win after some kills... but then I quit the game because I was far too tired.

But none of that was the real stupid part. The real stupid part was that I just blew a chunk of change on a tank I have no intention of even trying to play tonight since I'm so frickin' tired. I don't even know if it will fit my play-style at all... The crew was pulled from various russian crew members I had sitting around, like two from the KV-13, and two from the SU-85.

Somebody please reassure me that I didn't just do a real stupid thing.



I'm headed to bed; I'll deal with the hangover from this tomorrow evening.

If you like TDs, and drive TDs, you bought an excellent premium.

If you don't plan to drive USSR TDs, that was pretty dumb. But I'd rather play that TD than any of the T8 premium heavies.

Why? how does the SU-122-44 compare to the other USSR or other country TDs ?

How does it compare with other tier 8 premiums; say Lowe, 8.8 Jagdtiger, KV-5, T34, or Super Pershing?

Honestly I would say only compare it to the 8.8, everything else should be played different as they have turrets.

So, for the TOG players, have you noticed a growing trend?

I have noticed that alot of games someone will post up right at the beginning that the team has lost because they have a TOG, I think it is because of all the bad players out there. Thoughts?

The SU-152, T-25AT, and Jagdpanther all have inferior weapons, armor, and mobility at the same tier.
