Drum I couldn't agree more.
Only minor grief I have with the MM is tier 4 and up scout tanks get put in fights WAY over their heads 7 times out of 10. Sure a scout isn't supposed to kill everyone on the opposing team but if you can get a single penetrating shot, youre real lucky.

I love when people whine about the teams being unbalanced. Play phenominally or as a team and it balances the scales to your favor. Got 14 TD's and the enemy has nothing but light tanks? Maybe you shouldn't rush to your favourite spot like you normally would instead of complaining about it

Drum, I had a couple of games where I couldn't scratch the paint on anyone. Then again I had a game where I nibbled a couple of big boys down to size as well. One thing that's cool though is you can get off two or three shots to their one. It's almost like having an autocannon.

My favorite peeve is people griping about the maps. You don't usually get to choose the terrain you fight over. So change your tactics to fit the terrain.

Still a great game!!

The game has really come alive for me now that I am a better shot... I am finally starting to get the critical hits on my opponents that everyone else seems to get on me.

Also... a lot of my recent success seems to be coming from careful shot placement.

So much like paintball... at the beginning, I blazed away at everything I saw, until bigger and better gunners find my stationary sniper's nest.

Now, I maneuver and drive mostly... only take shots when I can see that they will tell... either long range shots on tracks and backsides, or close in shots that are placed just where the tank is weakest.

This morning, some big heavy charged me in my lowly T40. I waited until I had the shot perfect and tried to pickle a shot right down his gun. I hear "critical hit" and he stops shooting. I juked around his charge and hauled *** as one of the turreted guys took him out the rest of the way.

I could SEE my shot foul up his gun. Fun.

I bought two pairs and use them all the time, swapping from tank to tank. I sure noticed the difference. For one thing, it is very rare when I get killed by some tank that I cannot see.

I try to keep the view power as close to the 500m max as I can.
Have not bothered with the coated optics as yet

Thinking about buying a seven day premium account before the special ends tomorrow morning. What does that do, double your points for every game, or what?

Platooning sounds fun, too, I guess.

Weird, my viewing range on my T-34-85 is 400m, so with the binoculars, I should be at 482m viewing range and I rarely ever see tanks before they see me. I can't imagine there are that many tanks out there all maxed out at 500m.

You get 1.5 times the XP and credits. I made so much money when I was premium, so if you need credits, it's not a bad thing. I used the left over cold to convert free XP and that helped a lot!

That's because you are still careening around like a light tank!

A light tank's only defense is its speed... and the T34/85 sure drives like a light tank, but it has a gun that is on the larger side of medium, so... take the foot off the throttle a bit and let the other guy move to you.

A stationary tank will nearly always spot a moving tank before the moving tanks sees the stationary tank. Binoculars have nothing to do with that.

Slow down, hot stuff!

Ha ha ha well that's just it, I don't zip around any more, I try and find nice spots to snipe from. I get set and just sit there, and then boom! I'm hit by something out in front of me.

I just started playing this and it's incredibly addicting! I'm using a PzKpfw 35 and the turrent is driving me nuts with how slow it is...anyone know if there is an upgrade to speed it up? I go by delspop in the game.
