I'm getting bored with the Churchill. Can't seem to do any good with it any more. Is there another decent gold tank I can get that makes money? Not Lowe gold mind you, something cheaper.

I took on an IS7 with 2 IS3's and my M26 last night on Lakeville inthe valley. At least we blocked the valley so he couldn't get through

i like my little ram, its a fun little tank to play, matchmaking Wise you are sometimes top dog and other times your at the bottom, even then you can be useful, I usualy go spotting / mop up in higher tiered matches, if i see a damaged enemy i will lob a few rounds at them, if the hits damage ill go for the kill if not i run, fast if there is a t50 in game I hang back and take them out if possible, a favorite tactic is to get in the faces of bigger tanks, literally ram them , I may not be able to do lots of damage with each shot but I can fire rapidly, usually confuses them enough to come out on top, took out ān is3 that way, boy was he unhappy

The Ram II has the same gun as the Churchill doesn't it? 6 pdr? The Churchill is ok, but it's so SSSLLLLOOOOWWWW once you get into trouble about all you can do is sit still and slug it out.

I've been playin the French arty, it's making me decent amount of credit and exp.. but nothing tops the Type 59 for generating credits.

I find the Ram-II isn't as good asa my T-25 forr premium tank, T-25 seems o suurvive longer in battles and bounce off more shots.

The PzKpfw S35 739 has been a great little premium tank for me, nice all-rounder; when i get to be near the top of the starting list, I can usually mop up 3-4 kills if not more.

I like the Matilda for its history, but I don't ever see many in the game.....I was thinking about getting a gold tank and thinking about Matilda, but am just not sure....I was also thinking they had the valantine in there as well....but I never see it as well.

I would like to play a british tank....even if it has a red star on it.

It's a 6pdr, but it shares stats with the one on the M7 MT. The 6pdr on the Churchill has slightly better penetration, but only slightly. It's a good gun for a faster tank.

can't wait till I get a good tank....well let me re state that....I like my tanks fine when they have a chance to damage something....

Last night at the sea shore map I found a spot and they just could not see me....I hit a tiger p about 4 times then a regular tiger, 59, lowe....heck I was bounching shots off of everything that game....wishing I had a tank that would do some damage.

Funny thing is tho we did loose that game, but I had something like 28 hits, got a few hundred xp, but like 24k silver and the sniper award....big buzz...we would have won if I could do more then knock the paint off.

Man I hate being low guy....I guess I should just pony up and be a wallet warrior and quit bitching...but now it is just a grind....finally last night got the 88 on my VK...that looks like it could be an ok tank after I get the thing a new engine...it is SO SLOW.

Gonna pick out a tier 3 tonight for after MM decides that my middle tanks are to be pawns to be killed in the big tanks games.

Didnt have any real memorable matches last night but did manage to go 10-7, and survived 3, which is about on par
for me. I like to run/gun brawl more than I probably should, which leads to either spectacular victories or crushing defeat, rarely anything inbetween. 46% win / 52% loss, 14% survival rate shows you where i usually end up ;).

I can't seem to win in my Patton. It's making the grind to a better gun/engine/turret very painful.

I think it's just something I'll have to deal with. Being tier 9, it's never lower than mid pack and usually near the top. It just can't hang with the big boys yet though. Maybe I just haven't figured out how to play it yet.

I have lots of fun playing the lower tiers, Marder II, T82 are both fun TDs for me.

SU-26 is my favorite, occasioanally taking out higher tiers (8), can't beat the high firing/aiming rate.

Platooning in MS-1 is the most fun, along with other MS-1 in my platoon, time to time we get the most kills on our team, even against tier 2-3s. My MS-1 crew now has mutiple perks....
