Congrats!

and 15 detections in your Lee? um, that may be an indication that you were to far out in an unsupported position.

What made that your best battle Bri?

You've done a lot more than 3600 damage before...

My best battle of the day.....I've been getting my ass kicked today. High efficiency, next to no wins. Think I need to take a few days off. Ask Dave how my luck was this evening. He was a witness.

It has been a week since I've managed a 50% win rate. It is extremely frustrating. I guess I should just take a few days off of tanks.

It was quite a few of our luck. The day turned silly with, I can only guess, either the crew training or the running of tanks to earn money for the tier 8 sale.

We don't know, but some time after about 1 PM, eastern, today a large mass of poor players all seemingly logged in at the same time.

Nothing has been too good since, but then Brian and I both were getting crap teams in our platoons.

-----------
Tier 8's

AMX 50 100
and
4502A

are both in the house. Two quick training rooms with Brian taught me a valuable lesson about the AMX 50 100, and I'm looking forward to playing the tank even though I have no interest in the end-game of the 50B.

The 4502A will have to wait for me to play it. I don't have the funds nor the energy to fix it up just yet.

Scout. 2 of them so far. You have to win to get it, so you have to be almost smart about it. Chatting before the match helps. Correction: M2 Light tank (T:2)

I hate to say it, but I'm glad it's not just me.




And then I get one or two good games that get me hooked again. Right after that win in the KV-4, I ninja capped in my Hellcat for another win. 24-31 overall yesterday.

Angling your armor is crucial. I'm running the 105 now, but I think the 88 L/71 may be better because of reload time. Pens a bit more, but damage is lower. Pretty accurate too. I seem to get hit in the gun more often than not though. I have a 170% crew and the rammer. I can't swallow the 600k credits for vents though. I generally run binocs and a net just because I have 2 extra slots

Do. Not. Charge. Use it like a Lee/medium and it will work better for you.

Oh yeah. went 7-11 yesterday. The wins were't coming but my efficiency was at 1366

I was usually going 2 for 3 per tank before I got a win. Except for one, I jumped in the Patton figuring I'd lose some silver for a fun battle, but we ended up winning AND I survived with 26% health
