    Rice-paper tank.
    Even going up to the type 95 (same tier as the B1).

    It's not until tier 5 that the Japanese heavies are any good.

    Every line has at least one turd. Just have to deal, or free-xp through it.

    IIRC, the tier 5 is fun, the tier 6 is a keeper. IO Exp (or something) and IO

    I should be watching the TdF, but... I've got riding to do. This evening's race-speed ride - the guys up in front of the peleton (not front of this picture, though many up front here are really fast) race each other - the rest of us try to keep up:

    What's sorta funny is that this is as close as many Americans get to a real cycling race, so - even today - people were out taking pictures and videos of the spectacle (that we never get to see). I'm wondering just how many home-videos I'm actually in anymore.

    I'm not sure how far the nut-case with the mt bike kept up, but mountain bike racers from other countries (south American, usually) will ride their mt bikes in the road rides here in Florida for practice. That all works well and good on weekends, but on the Tuesday-Thursday rides (basically races) or Mike's Ride (out of Fort Lauderdale - just about all road racers) they seem to max out at around 27 MPH on the flats, and get left once we hit 28 to 31 for intervals on the flats.

    I just got hit by arty while exiting the spawn on Himmelsdorf for 1100 of my 1400 HP about 25 seconds into the game. Arty is broken.

    Were you going up the center? I frequently pre-aim there... for the noobs.

    lol... I do the same. Take random shots early and hope for a hit. Then wait 2-3 minutes, and hit the generic scout sitting points.

    Nope, I was still in the white circle, driving towards the hill, North-ish? Towards that eastern alley (I was on the East spawn).

    If something can take 80% of your HP, and blow out multiple modules in the first 30 seconds of the game, it's broken. :dirtdog

    That I could have forgiven. :lol3

    I had a guy in a sexton kill my type 95 as i drove across the map, never even fired a shot. I was never spotted and he hit me 6 times.

    Somethings weird there.

    Did you keep driving in a straight line? Were you knocking down trees? Driving through shrubs?
    There are plenty of clues for arty to look at in order to find targets without spotters.

    Nah. driving on the backside of the rail road embankment. Kinda wandered around after the shells started falling, you can only shuffle that tank in a zig zag so fast.
