I've been alternating between my T-28 and the Churchill III in prep for a KV-1. I'm doing great in the T-28 and sucking in the Church. I want to be less aggressive in the Church, don't I?

If you're dying early when you're with the top tier (tier 5's)... then yes. If you're still alive near the end and losing, then no.

Dysco...open a support ticket with Wargaming and send them that screenshot (and the replay, if you have it). Junior there should get a little vacation because of that, maybe a permaban.

Yeah, report him.

WOTLabs isn't even showing he's played recently... not sure why: http://wotlabs.net/na/player/brandon120

I think WoTLabs is having issues getting stats from Wargaming.

Big ups on the push-around keep it up hate it when people cannot drive and decide that you are the one to blame for everything. Personally i have a slight vendetta against some heavy tank drivers. No matter how well you position yourself in a TD, a heavy will always manage to park in front of you and block your shot and view....

I should post that replay Our t-50-2 ran ahead and into 2 type 59's and the T69. One of our types, myself and one other (I forget which) killed the 2 types and the T69. the E75 was defending cap where our arty couldn't get him, the AMX13 was pin pricking him and I could shoot his flank because he was worried about the little tank I even made it to cap!

Usually I die a horrible and firey death on the assaults because I play too aggressive (maybe I should get a KV5).

Overall I didn't do very well last night. I eeked out a couple wins thanks to the platoon mates reminding me not to be a dumbass.

Almost forgot. I added an EVGA GeForce GT 630 2048MB GDDR3 and 450 watt power supply tothe old PC and frame rate went from single digits to mid 20's for a low but is running in the 40's most of the time. Should make family platooning much better

And just to make things even more confusing. I promised the oldest I'd buy him a premium tank for babysitting. He saw that the KV5 was being offered and isn't sure which way to go. His choices are Super Pershing, T34 (prem heavy), and the KV5. The tank is going to be mostly for credit farming.

I probably won't log in tonight so I don't mess up my x5's, but in reality so the missus doesn't get pissed about me staying up late Friday.

What lines does he play already, and which of those does he want to take to Tier 10 first? Don't just chose for credit farming. Think about crew training as well. Having a premium tank allows you to really crank up the crew xp while you're earning credits. Highly trained crews make a lot of difference in high tier matches. Those are all good tanks...IMHO, the T34 is the best of the 3.

The super pershing is cheap right now... has me considering it even though I don't need it.

In fact, what I need more than anything is just time to play. it would be silly for me to buy the SP for the other account considering I don't get to play the main account all that often anymore... and it would be silly to even buy one for the main account considering I don't have time to even play my two good premium tanks.

Being unemployed was certainly good for playing WoT

I would have said KV5 just based on how farkin' slow the Super Pershing is (I'd really gotten sick of it)... but now that I figured out to put fast gas in the thing.. I'm really enjoying it again.

It is no longer annoyingly slow and it is practically a steel wall from the front.
Sure it doesn't do much damage per shot but it reloads quick enough to compensate.

Since they're about to change gold consumables to silver purchasable; I'm interested to see how the faster-fast-gas makes it.



p.s. it is funny - You play a Super Pershing (medium) like a heavy and it works.
You play an FCM50t (heavy) like a medium and it works.
Play either like you are "supposed to" = fail.

Getting the hang of the KV1. There is a difference between 'leading the charge' and 'the dumbass who gets shot from the side and rear'. Subtle difference, but it is there.
