Hetzer with the derp - nothing to do with staying back.
Lead the charge and punch people in the face with it

If you want to snipe.. use the other gun.

I play it exactly the same way as my T18

Even the AMX 105 AM with the upgraded gun is surprising me. Which is good, because it's a long way to the next one.

Agreed! It is a long way to the next one and that upgraded gun is good. But I'm still disappointed and wish it was better.

What is wrong with the gun? Is is slow to load? Innacurate? or does it just not hit hard? or is it something else?

I don't like it because it's a popgun. Really don't play the 105 much since I got the GWPanther...now that's a great arty piece

well today I was in a battle around 4pm pacific time where there was someone on the other team with a FYYFF tag that I didn't recognize, now that I have time to look they are not on the first page either...

Who is SadNews? They were playing a French Arty, I was trying to hunt them down to give them a "Hunny Bunny" but my team rolled them to quickly...

If anyone is starting a new WoT account, I've got some leftover codes for

2100 gold

and another code for

M22 Locust tank with gold & premium time...

for new accounts only... before you create your WoT account.

It doesn't hit very hard, it's not the most accurate, it doesn't focus the quickest, it loads 9-14 seconds depending on crew and equipment... It's not bad, I just think it sucks for my playstyle. I need to adjust my playstyle to fit it, I guess.

This morning I was grinding my T29 as is my want. In ten battles I won 8 and got an average of 726 XP per battle. I even made some money too: 65k-ish. And I do not run premium ammo or premium accounts. Somebody asked me, in the middle of that run, how I liked the T29. I spoke of it in mythical terms. I may have quoted Robert Fagles' translation of the Illiad.

Same complaints here, especially the accuracy. But it improves as the crew improves. I think my now-elited Lorraine 39 L AM is far more accurate but it also has a much more experienced crew.

Anyone running a GW Panther and also a higher tier French SPG? I'm pretty satisfied with the GW, dunno if I should even bother going up the French line any further.
