if you kill the golden tank and send them the screenshot of the kill display (friendly fire does not count). You get 500 gold.
Actually, you don't need to screenshot it. It processes automatically when you finish the match.

Some general comments:
The matchmaking system seems to be broadened out to up to four tiers within a match (i.e. Tiers II-V) now. This sucks when you're on the bottom rung, and I've noticed it's not always even: in my previous example, you could end up with one guy on your team at Tier II, while the lowest on the other team is Tier III.

The KV-1 is a pain to eliminate, even with a very large gun.

The M3 Lee Sucks!!!!!! I've been in this contraption since I knocked out the M2MT (ahhh, those were the days) and it's hell. Crappy armor, average speed, slow traverse rate, and a fake turret conspire to make hell for me. I'm almost to the point where I can research the T1 Heavy.

^unless you plan to clan and **** go with the M4 instead. The US heavies are garbage till the really high tiers.

I hated the lee until I had the bigger gun and started playing it like an aggressive tank destroyer. So many kills on **** I shouldnt have gotten because people write the lee off as crap most of the time. The M4 is a lot like the lee except with a turret and some armor.

I had 9 kills in my KV-1 yesterday, we lost. lol But I can imagine your pain. I'm getting chewed up in my KV-1S that way, along with it going by only tiers, not upgrades. I can't even chip the paint on the Tier 8's I'm up against. Yet.

Thanks for the advice- despite the word filter- I agree to go with the M4. Still wondering what it was you said that got filtered :P

Sounds like your KV-1 and KV-1S are like my M2MT - M3 Lee- I love running in the M2MT.

M3 Lee is terrible in a tank enviroment. It was designed as infantry support (hence the box look and the 4 internal gun turrets). I don't know how I managed to crank out 6 kills in that thing.

That was so long dang. Its can't be played lik a TD either because of its weak frontal armor for its tier and poor accuracy.

Like Leafy said; play it aggreisvely and flank stuff when people don't expect it.

The American heavy line is a slow and can-be painful grind. However, if you hull down whenever you can, its like MUAHAHAHAHAHA.

@UV_Halo: Yeah I figured as much cause I don't remmber reading that requriment anymore. Wiht the new 8.0 system; they are able to see who killed them after battles.

The M4 with the 105mm is a hella fun tank.

I am almost done my American line...just need the T110E3 now.......

Okay, I never do this well, and I couldn't have picked a better time to do it.



I know there are probably a fair number of you (if not all) who are better than me but, I kicked so much butt in this random battle, I had to share :P
