I'm just gonna keep trying to win; statisticians be damned.

Bought the T21 this weekend; played two matches. Two wins, survived both, 5 kills, and a 1st class medal.

They didn't remove the M4A3E8 - they just hid it and gave a buff.

Isn't the T21 amazing?

It's like the medium play-style (that some refuse to play even though they chose medium tanks) on crack, lol.

Only two T21 games, and I'm still running stock tracks, but I'm already getting that vibe.

It is so like the E8. The E8 has the preconception of being small and squishy, so folk would often overlook the one that was pecking them to death. The T21 has that same aura. But with the T21, it seems as though Wargaming took the original stats of the E8, stripped 200 hp and all the [useless, ineffective] armor, reduced the profile, decreased the weight, upgraded(!) the engine, and buffed the camo factor and view range.

I am already torn about the fate of my Chaffee. I equipped it, trained the crew, and bought gold camo for it. But between the T21 and the T71, it is probably doomed to the inventory of some shady used tank lot.

Camo and Binocs. I expected to sell it when I get the T71, so no advanced equipment for a tier 6.

Also, just did some checking. Looks like the minimum income for a T71 is right around 5500 silver, and it only takes two damaging shots to make a profit over the ~7300 base repair cost. Average income appears in the 20-30k range. This looks like a reasonably profitable tank to drive for battle tier 8-11 even without a premium account.

Sounds better than the amx13/90. I like the looks of the tank after the t71.

http://noobmeter.com/clan/na/_UF_/1000007224 - I'm 17th.

But you can get PIE CHARTS! We ALL love PIE Charts! right? anyway...



Maybe the site only came around recently, or... I have no idea why the max I can look at is 1,298 battles... it would be neat to see my last 5k and 10k battles. Now what math are they using to have percentages all equal something way, way over 100% as a total? I have no idea.

And then that site led me to another site to see my clan history...

http://duckandcover.ru/wotka?nicknam...er=NAm&lang=en

I can't get my 'print screen' button to copy it for some reason, but you can click on that to see an example of mine, then try it for yourselves.
The numbers add up to way over 100% because they're your win rates in each tank.

The second last shot "Looks like that one went right through!"

I was thinking "So does that mean he hit Graham that's pressed up against the other side?

RECON

So I'm still digesting various skills and things and the effects they have on my specific tanks (hence me posting all the timings on my OBJ 704 for loading with BIA, etc). Here's one I was disappointed to find:

100% RECON skill adds 2% to your overall view range.

So for example if you have an SU-122-44 with its whopping () view range of 330m....
2% of 330 is 6.6 meters.
So for tying up all that experience in your commander you now see 337 meters instead of 330
so lower tier tanks that have even smaller view ranges get even less benefit.

I think it is time to change my "recon" crew members to something more beneficial

That extra few meters can be the difference between being seen and not being seen. Then you get accused of "hacking". :)

Agreed - but wait until I get to the point where I'm comparing a crew member with a RECON value of 100% with the same crew member having a CAMO value of 100% instead - and draw your own conclusions as to which is more important
