    :dunno

    I came from the T46. I played the KV line months ago but I think I'm going to try for the KV4. Now I know how the T95 feels :D

    It's stupid to keep trying new tanks and trying to level up. I've got the IS3 - only need 2mil for the IS8. GWTiger, GWPanther - probably going to ditch the Tiger. and the M18.

    Fun play tanks are the M82, T34, M2, and Churchill.

    I liked the E8 better.:deal

    I used my E8 to good effect yesterday. There was a T 50-2 capping in fjords and I ran back to end it. he saw me coming and tried to run and ran up a slope that he couldn't climb so I pushed him higher using the E8's machine gun to kill him.

    I love my M7 Priest.

    Surely they are going to tame it down a bit.. it feels like cheating.
    Played 3 rounds last night with it - killed 4 each in two of the two rounds and 6 in other.

    My M41 on the other hand... I can't stand. Too slow at reloading and aiming.
    Trying to decide if it is worth grinding 100,000 research +1.7 million coin to get the M12 teir 6 arti? I suspect I'd end up using my M7 like I do now just because it is more fun but I did watch another player get 4 kills in a round with one.

    The M12 is WORSE(!) than the M41. Not only is it slow to reload and aim, it is slow itself and turns slow. I kept my Priest, but even then it is off for the last few updates. It used to be a 4 inch laser. Now I may hit one out of 8 or so. It's kind of like grinding through the Lee. I'm still 30k xp from the M40/43 and i've had the M12 for almost 8 months.

    Remember tho arty is hard to play....is not a finger of god....or "laser".

    I am not sure why but I seem to be killing more arty now that I have hit tier 8. And in a Pershing without the top gun as well. Don't know how, but in every match I live in I end up with killing or at least hurting real bad every arty unit on the enemy team. Tracked and just pound them in the side about every time.....wonder why that does not work on the lower tier arty...I hit them in the same place.

    Poor arty....in one of the few games I played last night I left the circle to hunt down the last arty unit....in that slow ass pershing again.

    Yup still hate it and think arty is the worst thing in this game.

    The Patton makes on even better arty hunter. I got 2 obj 212's and an S-51 in Mines. I just rammed the S-51 to kill him.

    Nice thing about playing arty too, is you get to know the hiding/shooting spots. Makes counter battery even easier.

    I think in tier 8 and up matches you tend to get either no arty or a lot of arty. We had 6 on each side in Wide Park. I killed a Gw Panther right off the bat, and then a T62 that was hunting for me.

    Played Dragon Ridge last night in the M12. Knocked an IS-8 and M26E4 down to around 10% hp left so the rest of the team could kill. Then started working on the T95 (they really should paint a big red n white target on the top of those things:lol3) when a E75 went past me and started capping. Peek over the rise, direct fire, shoot him to reset the cap, back up. The doofus just stayed in the same place while I reloaded, peek over again, shoot him again. Our AMX50/120 finally comes back and shoots him. Wish I woulda had a HEAT round then:deal

    I arty hunt in the Tiger II on some maps. :evil the E-75 as well sometimes. i just got the 1200hp motor last night in it so not it stays on the speed limiter every where but up hill. Off road driving helps as well. Now I can start playing it more like I do my Tiger II. this might get interesting.

    I'm going to grind on my E8 today and try and unlock the Tier 7 T-20.

    I'll be in teamspeak if anyone's bored.

    I am quite a way from the Patton...I just got the Pershing, but I am only 4000 or so away from the royal tiger. I really like my regular tiger, not sure why eveyone says they suck....and I am on the fence on keeping it. I like it better than the JS.

    On a subject change.

    Can someone explain the transfer of crew from a prem tank to a regular tank. My churchill (soviet) just got their first perk and I would like to move them to the JS....I guess heavy to heavy...do they take a experence hit when I move them....do they lose the perk...you know the little light pop on. I was thinking you did not take the 20% hit or whatever when moving crews out of a prem. tank if they stayed in the same class...heavy to heavy.

    thanks.
