I have one each of the first four tiers I like :

MS1 tiny so it is hard to hit, has derpish gun for its tier,
M2 light good balance
PZ1C fast. that is all. just fun to drive around in.
T-50 powerslides, decent armor, pretty good gun for its tier

Almost to a Leopard (on sale this week! can't wait to get rid of the Luchs, it is not near the tank the T-50 is in tier 4).

Don't forget that they got a bonus for winning the battle.....

I tried to play this evening but my ping was in the 300s and that makes it pretty tough to hit anything.

Nah, you just need practice, and to turn on the Server reticle...

Seriously though there are a few of us who that is the norm for our ping, with spikes higher...

I live in the country and my internet can be pretty close to dialup at times.

sometimes I will shoot and a sec or two later the "shell" will leave the gun...then I hear the sound....I have also driven up a cliff, over a cliff, into a lake....if my connection is crap I will not drive anything that goes very fast.

Yup...one of the reasons I started playing arty. So easy you can do it with a crap connection.

They really need to do something about arty.....you knew I could not do 3 posts without bitching about arty

I grinded all the way past the SU-5....I bet I am one of the few guys that did not free XP my way past that turd.

Still doing the hummel and started on that huge soviet thing...forgot its name, after that su5.....much better...but a real big fricken target.

I picked up a Leopard last night to replace the Luchs. Games in that are hit or miss, I tried both scuiscouting (FAIL!) and passive scouting. I did better at passive, but I can't keep my finger off the trigger (mostly to help team mates).

The T28 wasn't doing great either so I decided to take the T18 for a spin. That thing is a giggle a minute! I was placed in the bottom third for my battle and ended up with 7 kills for Top Gun and Cool Headed. The last tank was a machinegun armed light the was shooting me for no pen so I drove up to him, shot him point blank and then pushed him off the cliff in the last couple seconds.

There is lots of target fixation on the lower tiers

I've seen one other T95 get an Invader award.

There should be a special award for doing it - like 500,000 Silver

I'm serious.
