I'll post some pics of the crazy matchups I've been in recently... Like all tier10s except my tier7 tiger. Wheee.

Or the blowout where I'm the only tank left, I'm the only one on my team with a kill, and I'm the artillery. I mean, damn, its hard enough to earn exp points with artillery. But if your team sucks dead donkey balls....

I like playing the Grille. Almost to the Hummel. Could use the rammer. It's frustrating when you've finally locked on a target and fire, and they move at the last second. At least the Grille has some splash damage.

I do love one-shoting TDs, though. 600+ hp damage, coming you're way...

You know I bought one....figured what the heck...it is cheap enough. Man that gun shoots fast....does not hit very hart tho....and IIRC it is a 6 pounder, so no HE as typical british....so that is true to history as well.

I actually like the tank it is pretty thick....I will be intrested in seeing how it is after the special is over....I have not been out of the top 4 in any match I have played....one game I was in had 5 churchills on the same team....crazy.

But I do kinda like the tank...so far I am glad I bought it....very thick, slow....reminds me of my little tier 2 french tank I like so much.

I hope they put Matilda on sale.....I would like one of those as well....again history is getting the better of me....I always wanted the queen of the desert.

Matilda is available thru the GiftShop.. not sure if it's a good deal, but premium tank earnings, it shouldn't be too bad.

I had a heck of a run on Komarin this morning in my T-50 in a Tier 5 match....5 kills, 5 damages, Ace Tanker and Defender....replay attached if anyone wants to watch.

I'm going to miss this map.

I really enjoy playing Province map, now it seems to have disappeared for higher tier battles.

Wouldn't be surprised if they remove certain maps due to low popularity, Dragon Ridge is one of my fav.

They need more like it. I love running around that map in a t-50 / t-50-2!

I thought Province was an excellent new map as well. I haven't played it in at least a week, so it was like they took it out of the game for some reason. Anyone know what tier is the limit in Province then?

Run a low tier map....I have a few tier 2 tanks that I enjoy to play and it seems you get three maps, province, mines, and the one with the big field in the middle and you both start on each side.

I can tell you....you will play that map A LOT if you play the low tiers.

Ok it is official....I love the churchill....man that thing is fun. I put the gun rammer and now that thing shoots like a machine gun...relods are in the 2 sec range. Rolled up behind a t14 and put about 10 rounds into him before he could get halfway around.

And I know there is bonus credits this weekend but I have been getting 50k on a good game and 20 on a crap game. If it is 3x credits then I will still be happy....and to repair a toasted tank is like 2k

The last thing is I have NEVER been out of the top 5 in this tank...makes me think that being a prem. does have advantages.

Down side is the thing does have a very long nose...I did learn not to poke it arownd corners early on.

Pretty sad when I can't even enjoy the game because MM keeps grouping me with a bunch of looser campers with untrained crews. For the morning, I'm 3-14. In most of the losses, my team hasn't even had a chance.

I've been a fan of the 6pdr for a long time.
It's what I run in my M7.
Fast gun on a fast tank (60+kph).
I run the rammer, stabilizer, and vent class on it.
Max dmg isn't very good, but it has good pen, and with the rate of fire, the dmg adds up.

+1 - it's a real bummer to play a decent game in your corner of the map, then look around and see that most of your team is dead, and the rest of the bad guys are coming for you!
