About the Jag 8.8, it is brilliant as a sniper when you can keep them infront of you, and ofcourse keep them from turning your lower glacias into swiss cheese. it's gun I think is comparable to the T 25/2's with more pen, but it's armor is a t-28 when hull down.

Thanks guys!


Just trying to get an idea of the play-style, and if it would be a tank I wanted to play. Credits and crew training are all great, but for that much gold I sure had better want to play it. I have a good idea of the T34 style, but not as much of the 8.8 so this info helps.

Is it still possible to get on the test server to try these out?

they normally take the test server down as the new patch drops.

Gotta wait for the 8.7 test, I guess.

You know you want that T34.

I didn't have much luck with teams this morning. One team was always rolling the other with only 2 good battles.
I don't really care for battles where 1 team has 6 mediums and no heavies, and the other team has 4 heavies and 2 mediums. Those tended to go extremely poorly for the non heavy team.

You'd think after all these patches, I'd be able to load mods and make em work Might be the mods aren't up to par though.

Here's something new that I'm only seeing with one arty - MINE: When in a tier 9 battle, a heavy tank on our side will be replaced by my new tier 9 GW Tiger. The other team will always have what we're all used to seeing in as far as heavies, mediums, and arties of a lower tier to support their heavies... but three out of four games my GW Tiger is the sole SPG at the top, so of course the team falters and loses because we're missing a heavy at the top tier, and because the average random pub that get thrown at the top of my team can't play worth a shit.

Not really sure how the experience is done now...look at this wacky game..5th highest damage given, second highest xp, and the most kills...should be proof you get xp for kills....that is the only thing I can figure.

So I was prepared to really dislike the patch vis-a-vis my Grille, but in spite of the decreased range and nerfed accuracy it has turned into a killing machine. AS long as the target cooperates and I put the reticle in the right place, I've been getting one shot kills on even Tier 7 heavies. Don't know what they did, but I must say I like it. Now I just gotta grind untill I can afford a rammer and get the crew up to 100%....

Interesting you guys don't play tier8-10 french TDs. They seem to be beasts in game. Fast with strong guns. Hard to pen from the front.

I would and should - it's just that probably, for a few of us, we've been playing long enough that French arty didn't exist. When one has one or two arty lines researched, it just doesn't seem worth it to research out more lines of it. Then, out of nowhere, here came this patch that offered to make our tier 7's into tier 9's (at least for many I know). Well the only lines I had up to that point were things other than French (german and soviet), so I chose one of the two to buy.

In the single match I was placed at the bottom of the MM list I did really well; something like 4th highest damage (in that tier 9 SPG for a tier ten battle), and I out-damaged all tier 10 arty that were in it.

In tier 9 and tier 8 games I can't even get moved enough before it's apparent that we're going to lose. I believe that something with the MM and the GW Tiger got messed up because I have yet to be in a battle in a tier 8 or 9 as a tank and have any arty at my tier or above me for me.
