    i think the 3601 with the 88 was a better tank
    tigers seem to get way to much attention and everyone wants to kill you

    What's the 3601 have for hit points? I know when I try to kill em with the E8 they tend to absorb plenty of rounds. The PzIV is pretty weak armor wise, but the 75mm L70( I think it's the L70) does a pretty fair job on like tier tanks.

    They should give you the option of buying a GR-300-S welder and a Mobile Machine Shop with your gold and going through the tank scrap pile and building a run watcha brung tank.

    Whatever the 3601 is, I agree that it can take the place of the TIger in most situations. Sorta seems like it can take just as much getting shot at, but since it is smaller its easy-to-pen surfaces are smaller, so it can bounce more (or be missed more at distance).

    If any of you have cash to burn... try the 3601 with the Konisch (Conical) gun and gold ammo. It turns the 3601 into a tier-8 IMHO (as long as you aren't being shot), it's incredible... but costly.

    I wasn't a fan of the 3601 after one of the tweaks. It went from an ATM to a smouldering wreck with one update.

    Tiger is fun as long as you're teamed up. Alone, you die quickly. Same as the IV. Both are fun with 100% crews and hiding in the bushes sniper mode.

    I'm almost to the Tiger2, but will probably keep the Tiger.

    E8: not a fan. I probably won't like the t20 either.
    Hellcat: Hard to play well. Fast but turns very slowly.

    I was just angry cause it happened to me 3 times last night. Normally not a problem in the 85 or 100 because i can see them coming and rotate in time and punch them in the nose, but the 152 is so horrifically slow it might as well be a bunker gun.

    It was awesome to 1 shot a KV though.

    Loved the SU-85 and the SU-100. I think I got about 11k of xp before selling the SU-152 and writing off the entire branch.

    Working on researching the 85 now....just bought the 34/85 last weekend. Need to get it the upgrades as well.

    Why are the upgrades for it cheaper then for the Panther....same class..... a little bias for the soviet stuff....no could not be.

    10k for the turret on the panther OMG....it is going to take forever. I am actually thinking about converting exp with gold to speed up things.

    This game is starting to cost me money :rofl

    Upgrades are cheaper because the 34-85 is only a Tier 6. Panther is a Tier 7.

    Tier 7
    Panther - 8200 Tracks, 10100 Turret
    T-43 - 7960 Tracks, 7105 Turret
    VK3002DB - 11315 Tracks, 15120 Turret

    Tier 6
    T-35-85 - 3995 Tracks, 7220 turret
    VK3001H - 5340 Tracks, 5215 Turret
    Easy 8 - 5145 Tracks, 5170 Turret

    Seems russians are more expensive at T6(11215 vs 10555 & 10315), cheaper at T7(15065 vs 18300 & 26435 ouch ).

    It is me or does the Type 59 works particularly well on Dragon Ridge?
    Lately, I've had a handful of battles on that map with my Type 59 and seems to worked out well. My Chinamen make me proud.

    Type 59, T-44 and Lorraine all work well on Dragon Ridge.....fast and heavily armed rules.

    Deleted my sniveling...

    Got the top gun and now I can at least penetrate once in a while. Still a slow thin armored turd.

    I was a bit frustrated playing my heavies recently. Tons of games where I got killed without a single kill.

    I got me a T-50-2 to see what it's all about but I have to say the T-50 was more fun. Even in good, winning games, I end up losing money if I die (7 tanks detected, pumped 8 shots in a Ferdi's ass from point blank with no damage, then scouted arty 1 which got killed before I got near, then arty 2 got a lucky shot and killed me). Result: 8000 silver, 9500 repairs.

    So I went slumming. A great way to find some fun again. I never sold my tier3 M2 MT, great speed, powerful gun and I'm top dog maybe 30% of the time. I'm always overpowered with my tier5-tier7 heavies.

    And yesterday I sold the T150 and got the cute little tier1 MS-1. 100% crew from the T150 with 30% repair, camo net, binocs and vent. Some may call it herding n00bs, but ending every game with 3-4 kills is great for your confidence. Attacking Malinovka through the swamp and capping the enemy base? I didn't even know that was possible!

    7-2 last night. One very entertaining battle between a Patton and a T95 being the only 2 tanks left on Steppes/Encounter battle. I didn't know T95's could turn that fast. They go slow for certain.I ended up with 2 kills and 23k experience in the M12 on that map.

    I bought a 3 day premium so I could get double xp so I can get the Patton sooner.

    Still trying to figure out the play style for the RAM II. MM does not like that tank:bluduh For 610 hit points it sure dies fast. The gun doesn't have enough punch to really do any damage.

    Anyone running a Matilda? I don't see many of them. Are they as crappy as the RAM II?
