    Well, I'm not sure, but the last two battles I played with my T110E5 went very well, and if that was due to the Vent I installed right before (I had on binocs before), then regarding our earlier posts... Brothers in Arms will be worth it.

    I can't say the tank does anything better, but it is doing better for me.

    That was the second battle with the new Vent. I'll take it! :clap That's to just about 10500 damage between the platoon.

    I rammed a BatChat (that I was sparring with and shooting before) for a Kamikazi today, too:

    A BatChat in a light T21... that was cool.

    So tonight I had the distinct pleasure of platooning with frecks and burgen for 11 battles between hetzers, hellcats and tier 7/8... 11 straight wins!

    I unlocked the VK4502(p) Ausf. A. Hafta sell the Tiger P to buy it though. The Tiger P almost always makes money, not much even with high damage battles, but it seems that line makes for the most challenging and difficult play.

    Looks like it's gonna be a Stug weekend so I can get some coin saved up.

    I've been running into more ad more KV-2's as of late. Last night I was trying to kill one with my 3001p with the 88 L/56 and couldn't pen so I switched to HE and hit im 6 in a row, mostly trying to track him so my team mates could finish.

    Where's the best place to hit a KV2?

    If they have the tall turret, side and rear of it are really soft.

    Oddly enough I have had decent luck penning the perimeter of the face of that turret, though with the derp gun you are best never to let that thing get pointed at you.

    But if he fires and misses, you have 30 seconds or so to do whatever you want to him....:deal

    The one from last night had the 107. Luckily he was a terrible shot:deal

    We had a platoon of 3 KV-2's with derps a couple nights ago. I had my Cromwell and just followed along, those 3 would shoot, wait to reload and I'd poke out past them to keep the targets at bay. I didn't make much coin, but our team won that battle handily.:lol3

    I believe the turret ring is also a good spot on that one.

    Treat the KV-2 the exact same way you treat a KV-1. From the front, shoot the driver port. To the sides/rear, shoot the engine compartment and light a fire.

    If you get behind the turret, shoot into the back of it on either side (if you shoot the door, you'll miss the ammo rack). If you have to shoot the turret head-on, fire at the flat bit beneath the gun mantlet and you will kill the gunner. But if you are doing that, better to run away before ya get derped.

    They were on a roll last night. They set me up with a ~82% win rate.

    Except for that battle with Bonzai. We got rolled in that one. :eek1
