Can you run premium tanks in that? The FCM36 Pak40 is a Tier 3.
I just sent in my note....the FCM would be my first choice.


I have never done this before so if you decide that I can play the match someone will have to let me know.

I usually do not TS but have the account and the mic I will just keep the wife up for these battles....I am sure she will not mind.

Just let me know how it works.

150,300 credits earned in a T34 game.

I was in shock.

Look... the T34 loads agonizingly slow, and isn't really the best sniper tank in its tier either. I've earned the Sniper award in it for as few as 9 out of 10 shots made. Sometimes a few more...

But I hit 23 out of 25 times. 5,665 damage. I guess I'm content, but...

The best I've been able to achieve, two or three times, was 134,000 and 135,000 credits with the T34 and KV-5.

Their team should have had this, and had 4 tier 8's (8.8 Jagd, T69, IS3, T34) against our two tier 8's and one tier 7 at the end. Man, it was a close game





Notice that we had a tier 8 (Type 59) that did nothing? Yeah, I was initially around him and counting on him to do something. Instead he ran away leaving my flank open to a full health SuperPershing. Then I guess he died not having shot anyone..

Hey BigBird... notice you're not doing any screenshots of our platooning. Am I that bad?

no, it just means that I am that lazy...

Actually, it probably is that I do dumber stuff when platooning with Geek.

I've spent the last couple days playing an SPG. I tried one back when I began playing WoT but I preferred playing up close and personal at the time.
I'm really enjoying it this time. I feel less pressure to play well and since I'm in the rear I don't die as quickly.
It's also pretty cool to be able to help a team mate out from across the map.

LOL... much faster than any tank you have?!?! Oh boy...

But ample practice in the T34 will be great training for the T30... except with the T30 you see the biggest arty more, and they like to one-shot T30's.

That explains the crappy arty support we get!
Finally... an answer!

On the T28, I'd trade the coated optics for a rammer - you'll get more shots in, which, in a TD that loads that slow, is important.

Has something happened to the KV5? Yesterday I was in my T95, and in one game fired ~13 rounds, and only *2* of them did any damage. Most of those shots were at a KV5.

Later on in another game I came up against an 8.8, and it bounced 3 shots on the front. I eventually got behind it, found out the driver was AFK, so I decided to go for the easy kill while my team-mates capped.

Shooting point-blank on it's rear armor, and I still didn't pen with 3 shots.

I'm like WTH?!?
