Sounds like a good way to lose a 39th battle to me. I'd also wager that he was a noob that had no business running a Tier 8 heavy in the first place.

I didn't catch the number, but someone said he had less than 300 battles


Crappy day otherwise for me. Breaking better than even on credits, couple top damage for team, record of 1/6

I think I will be running the 1S for credits too! Derpa Derpa! I wonder what this will do to the Medium Tank Companies?

Ahh, consumables and another year of premium on sale. Yippie.

Is the TOG getting the 50% credit bonus too, or is it just the tank on sale?

Usually they are just the premium tank on sale, not a credit bonus... if it was I would definately run that as it would be a huge cash cow.

New map, you say? Not a re-worked old one? Wish they'd bring Swamp back, or the one that had the river cutting through the middle - there used to be a place I could rule with my Su-26 from...

yeah there is a new map in the works, it looks kindof odd compared to the existing ones. very asymetrical. I'll throw a link up when I get home.

I made the mistake of typing out: "PLZ--NO--suicide scouting!!! moving to support EAST flank" during the countdown for all to see in a random battle on PORT map starting from the north.

Sure enough, enemy team started talking smack and thanked me to giving away tactics, etc..

Ally supported the EAST flank, I got 4 kills for a win:

Efficiency 1,879
Lifetime (minutes) 4.75
Experience 503
Mileage (meters) 335
Spotted 0
Frags 4
Shots vs Hits 17 vs 6
Hit Ratio 35%
Damage dealt 1,027 (171 per Hit)
Damage assisted 0
Damage received 33
Survived Yes
Capture / Defence 0% / 0%

Credits
Received 11,531
Auto-repair vehicle -284
Auto-resupply ammunition -2,550 0
Auto-resupply consumables 0 0
Total 8,697 0

Here is the map



I don't want to be glass half empty, but it looks like another dragon ridge. Do these idiots not look at history and see what kind of ground tanks fought on.

Why no open maps like we saw great tank battles happen in...oh wait I know...nevermind.

I think I would be safe to say it is the best tank for its tier.
