My entire crew is ~60% into camo. I've been considering switching the commander to 6th sense, but I figure the Hellcat has a built-in 6th sense in the form of a shell from nowhere causing 3 criticals.

I have the next TD researched, but have been having such fun with the hellcat I don't really want to get rid of it....I may have to sell off one of the lesser used tanks and put it in the keep pile.

The T25/2 is painful to play as its 'upgrade' gun is only 10 more pen than the gun on your hellcat with the same damage. Its slower, armor is a fraction better but as your a tier higher its still effectivly paper matche.

You may want to consider running up the turretless line to the T25 AT before getting the T28 Prototype as it gets the 105mm that is the middle gun for the Proto. I would hate to be in the proto in a tier 10 match and trying to do damage with the 90mm to grind xp for the 105 / 120.

Good Hunting!

I seem to do better in TDs than mediums and heavies. I'm considering bringing back my T-49 just to train crews for my T18 and the turretless line. I had a pretty good record with it. So far the Hellcat seems like a total keeper.

I've finally figured out how to hetzer successfully, and I'm hesitant to Stug. Why mess up a good thing? Perhaps I'll keep the hetzer and train another crew for Stugging.

+1, but while it's what I did - I didn't mean to do it correctly... it just happened that way.

And consider keeping the Hellcat since it is a very useful Tank Company tank (if you like to join medium tank companies).

My goal to raise my 110E5's average damage hit a few snags tonight.

Initially I was with a poorer team, did over 4,000 damage and we won (barely) - so that went well.

On the next two teams I was on the teams were so efficient, and I was in the middle of the maps - which it turned out wasn't where most of the action was - so 1,600 damage for two battles.

Then I had the ultra-tard team of tier tens who didn't even make it to the edge of the city on LakeVille. So preoccupied with one tank on the middle road were they that my 110E5, that wasn't even really IN to the city from the south side, had no support, was WTF-pwned by a myriad of their tanks that had rolled the whole way through, and I was taken out with 1,400 damage before the rest of the team - still sitting out in open fields in a-wonder at the pretty tanks headed their way - had their asses handed to them.

Again, I really need to start being more harsh in my evaluation of their XVM scores before I even leave base the next time.

Lesson hopefully learned, but I'm giving up for tonight.

Results:

The stuggy is a pretty darn good TD....I have been thinking about getting it again.

Aww man... it was hilarious.

Sorry guys - hope some of you got to see it. Probably got warned due to the music violation, or image violations, or products...
