Amen Drum it was really cool meeting you. I was in that tree line and saw you run up to that tree in front of me and thought,"Hey, that's Drum!"

This platooning thing is interesting.

While it does not seem to have a big effect on my relative success as a tanker, it IS kinda nice having one or two tankers that I know looking out for me and vice verse.

The other day, I was accosted by a Lowe in my T28. Al and Christy, each in their own T28's rammed him from either side as he was trying to get a bead on me. They were ramming him from the sides and shooting him with their pop guns and I was pounding his front armor (alas) with my 85mm and we finally killed him off.

That was fun.

Neither does my T-43, I normally end up losing money each match. Last match was 11k in credits, but 14k in repairs and ammo.

Seems to be the rule when you get to the upper tiers... more expensive to run those tanks... maybe they figure by the time you are running a Tiger, you are too far gone to be able to quit the game for such attrition.

Whenever I need "money", I run my little elite Luchs... gets destroyed nearly every game... but complete repair costs about 800 credits and the lil Luchs typically rakes in ten times that in a typical victory.

Heck, even the defeats are worth more than it costs me to fix it.

My Luchs is also largely responsible for the mad surplus of about 15K free XP that I converted.

The other day, I had one of my best games with the Luchs. The highlight was circling a Lowe at high speed until another Lowe on the same team accidentally killed the tank I was torturing while trying to get me.

I laughed and laughed.

After weeks of experimentation and learning about this game from other players, I finally stumbled across this bit here;

Category:Tutorials/Guides - World Of Tanks

I know, I know... not exactly hidden, but I am terrible about reading guides and tutorials.

Anyway, this has the answers to a lot of the questions that we have been kicking around here. The Battle Mechanics chapter is particularly interesting to me.

Cheers,

D

I tried some of the premium APCR rounds today. They penetrate much better than the usual rounds! I like to save them for the really big tanks. I put about 10 rounds in place of 10 HE rounds and they lasted quite a while. It still takes a few to kill someone but you can see the damage piling up on them.

Special deal tomorrow... if you have the right tanks (T28, T34, Sherm, Wolv., Stug or Pz4) you will receive double credit for the day.

Thinking about hitting a premium account for those 24 hours as I have three of those tanks.

Gonna rack up elite XP in a T28 and grind through the M4 and M10 at double time.

Also, half price 100% crews start in the a.m. too.

Have yet to use premium shells except by accident (ran out of non-premium shells without noticing) but I have a few laying around the depot on account of previous sales.

Tank well
