Picked up the T-20 and IS for 50% off. I was going to save the exp for the KV-4 but thought I'd keep my options open.

I simply cannot tell you guys how many losses I had in the Hellcat today... I have never seen teams as bad as they have been in the last three hours.

And... I didn't know there as any sale! Thanks! ... wait...I don't see an IS for sale?

I played my buddy's type 59 on his account a few times... earned over 100k with it in I think the second game I played with it. I saw it as a very capable tank, the speed is good, and it's probably the funnest tier 8 Premium tank there is for the average guy. I played his Lowe, too, but just didn't have the patience for the slow speed that morning, so I gave up on it after about the third game. Great sniping tank, but wow... slow.

I took advantage of the sale with what funds I had and bought a T25 AT. I'm usually not too comfortable with a non-turreted TD in the higher ranks (StugIII and below are fine and fun), but wow... stock gun, and I took out a 85%-left M110 and 95% of a Type 59 with it in one game... got the Sniper award for all those hits... still lost the game. Next game it shined just as well. Seems as fun as some people claim it is.

I'm going to have to buy a T25//2, also, but the review of it are very poor due to its crappy (for its tier) gun.

I made good on my promise to buy gold again since WG was nice enough to give me the T34 as a premium tank. Not sure how I'm going to use that gold though... I may actually try buying only one 24-hour premium account at a time, now, since my work and other schedules waste most of a week-long or month-long premium account. Some premium ammo for the tanks is warranted as well... I would use it on a 5x XP day, like today, if - and only if - my team had a good chance of winning. Wasting premium ammo for a low XP gain at the end of a losing game doesn't seem worth it.

I gave in to the shiney'ness of the Type 59 and bought it... I played it a couple games yesterday, really didnt notice anything, but had no equipment or consumables loaded.

This morning before work I loaded it with a cam net and FA kit, repair kit and extinguisher and headed out.

Now I got 2 kills, a couple decent hits and had what I would consider a mediocre game. 7700 XP (x5 for first battle) and 98000 credits...

Im officially a fan.

I have a lowe too, and your right, great for sniping, but toe to toe it doesnt do that well unless the other guy is an idiot (thankfully alot of people who play this game are) however you cant count on that.

I got my M26 last night, had the 90mm researched already with vents and rammer (had them in the depot). I like it more than the t20 so far. I can't see any difference between the 2 90mm guns though.

Picked up a GLD for the Priest. I was going to get the M12, but I need too many XP for it yet, not sure if I'm going to get the points I need before the sale is over.

Last night in Ensk, the north group ALL went west for a push, so I took my priest and hightailed it north on the east side, killed a T28 along the way, and shot up 2 arty's point blank, missed an M37, but someone else got him before I reloaded. Priest TD!

It's freaking slow.
After the Hellcats mad speed, it feels even slower than it is. I don't have the T15E2 yet so I don't know how much better it is. The M3 works OK, and the extra pen with the T15E2 will be nice.
For it's tier, I agree the gun is under powered.

It may be underpowered, but I find it to be pretty accurate. I've taken shots half way across Steppes and gotten repeated hits.....stupid Ferdi, you shouldn't face sideways and leave your butt hanging out.....

1st game with the KV-1. It was just me and two of the enemy KV-1s at the end.
