Oh, I understood... I was just comparing that to that gig where you can watch the other guys finish the battle that you just got knocked out of.

I generally skip it as too frustrating to watch, powerless to help.

Like being a passenger in a car or something.




And yeah, I work... but this particular Thursday, I worked as a tank driver!

As odd as it may seem, I watch all the battles to the finish mainly to learn what not to do. I've seen so many drivers make mistakes and I have learned a lot of do's and don'ts just from watch the battle to the end. I'm just odd like that.

Part of my big mistake some times in the higher teir battles when I have a fast tank is play like its a lower tier battle. In the lower tiers you can just run up on someone and out drive them at close range and blast the hell out of them without getting hit. At the higher tiers you can do the same thing, but you get shot by his buddies.

I never count on anyone helping me when I am arty, I've found those spots where I can get away if necessary. I've had guys say they will escort the arty and they fall asleep or are just bad tank drivers so I never rely on anyone else.

Discovering the joys of an SU-26 of late... what a fun little arty piece! I have been having particular fun with its fast firing 76 howitzer.

Hardly any kills, but I damage near every tank I see and now I get to take pot shots at moving targets with less concern that I am wasting a round.

Was a bit drastic with my recent points bonanza... bought toys for my favorite tanks, but also sold a few I was bored with (T34/85, Wolverine and Luchs) in favor of a few lower tier tanks that I want to try.

I am beginning to see how hard it is to "make money" with a few of my higher tier tanks (tier VII and up) and also that the enjoyment level of playing the lower tiers with a tricked out tank exceed my efforts to roll with the mad dogs in tiers VII-X.

So now I have a range:

Tier III - SU-26
Tier IV - Grille and Leopard
Tier V - M4 and KV (got this for the rumor "refund" coming with the next patch)
Tier VI - VK3601 (no hurry to get the Tiger - 30k away)
Tier VII - IS (scads of XP away from the next tier, but about to get the big engine)

I have the T-43, M4A3E8 and M36 Slugger all researched, but I am beginning to see tier VI and higher tanks as being a bit of a money pit. Figure I will put all my upper tier eggs into my IS and hold off on other high tier tanks until I have piles of credits and boredom.

Anyway... rock on tankers of the world.

Money pit for sure! Although I had a pretty good day yesterday averaging about 20k credits per game with my T-43. It sucks when I have a bad game though, I end up losing about 2-4k credits

I'm having a hard time deciding what to play when I log in. I need 40k XP to get my T-44, 27k XP to get my SU-8 and 21k XP to get my SU-100.

Ok well after reading the wiki page on this game (RTFM) i went from junk player to getting 2 or so kills a game and damaging atleast 5 or 6 tanks. I thought it was just a shoot the other guy game, but theres so many variables, weak spots on tanks, armor thickness vs armor slope, angle of attack/tradjectory. And i thought it was cool that you can try and snipe for the viewports on the tank to take out the driver and such, just bumped up to tier 3/4 and the game is changing alot, not so much for the good, cause it seems like i just keep running into heavy tanks and TD just camping the whole game.

Just got my wespe and going from like 6 rpm to barely 4 is a huge difference, i can fire a shot, get up, use the restroom quick and come back and still wait a few seconds for the reload lol, and i kinda thought wtf when going up to the higher tier tanks and seeing stuff like 1.5 rpm.

Not for nothing, but those are some bummin choices!

I am sporting too many tanks now, but I think they are each pretty much fun in their own right.

Does that SU100 get to use the 107mm? If so, then that is a pretty fun tank, Ill bet.

I think Ruskie arty begins and ends with the SU26 though. I love being so small in a crowd of house-sized tanks.

JLuke, welcome aboard. If you want to have your head swim on all those variables, read this;

Battle Mechanics - World Of Tanks

cheers and BTB!

JLuke, you hit it on the head. On the low tier battles the game does appear to play like an arcade shoot and move, blow up the other guy and get blown up. But at the later tiers, tactics become important. Heck, even with my A-20, I would do what I could to track the guy, and then just run circles around him knowing his turret couldn't keep up with my speed.

Yeah Drum, they are lame tanks :P

The SU-100 can use an 85, 100, or 122 Pretty much the exact same cannons on the T-43. I haven't seen a 107 on any of the Soviet tanks or TD's I'm using. Maybe that's a cannon only the Soviet heavys get?
