I feel the need... the need for speed... and might bypass the BT-2 and use free XP to get right into the BT-7. It would join my M3, A13, and Pz38nA in the Too Fast For My Own Good department.

What worries me is that I've snap-shotted charging BT-7s to death because it's got pretty bad armor for Tier III. (Answer: Don't be those guys.)

Thoughts?

^ Funny that the guy with the most "shooty" name drives the .. least shooty tanks..

A good scout is worth their weight in gold x 2 + a billion though!

The Bt-2 is roughly similar to the BT-7, except that it only sees tanks of tiers 1-3 instead of 2-5. It is much easier to pwn in as a boss of the battlefield than the BT-7 which is really just a scout most of the time. If there's a tank you should skip it's the A-20. It's not fun as a scout, teh gun is horrible, and it takes 11500 xp to research the T-34, which is FAR superior in every way except absolute speed.
EDIT: Just upgraded my T-34 to historical 1941 standard, but it's very challenging to play with only 86mm of penetration. I can go by the tanks on Prokhorovka and think "I have that exact same one" though.

I just noticed: GUP2 uses the Kuromorimine emblem for their clan.

if you want both speed and power, try to get the Cromwell.

I've decide: Should the Lwe go on sale, I'm selling the Tiger and buying the Lwe.

Because I love the pain

Naa I found that out to my horror after I mounted.

That said it does alright in the urban maps and at least I'm not bouncing as many shots anymore and when it comes to the more barren landscape maps I generally hang around the flag and defend the arti.

Slightly off-topic, but I just noticed when I was checking my "special offers" link on the humble indie bundle (which is selling all the Company of Heroes games, plus others for dirt cheap) ..

That Wargaming.net paid over $1,500 for a copy of all the games (http://www.humblebundle.com/ - less than 9hrs left)

Outlook is positive

Here is the awesome LL Churchill game I promised I would upload a replay of a few days ago.

And this is probably the first time I've ever been on the right side of a 15-0 drubbing.

Ended up putting the other fast tank decision on hold, because I gathered up enough XP to get myself a StuG. After all, as I said, I have a few fast tanks already.

I haven't done any evil cackling with the StuG yet, though. It needs upgrading to survive the extra tier.

So tank vets... question time!

As I am on the verge of acquiring a Tiger II, I plan to use my Tiger as my training vehicle until my crew can get sufficiently trained before they transfer to the bigger cat. That being said, if my crews have several skills trained before moving on, would those skills become inactive because I will have to retrain my crews from a certain level while they operate the new tank, or would they be retained?

If you have skills and perks, they don't become inactive. They simply do not get trained further until the basic skill is at 100%.

So say if I have deadeye trained. It will be retained and remain active even if my basic skill is not at 100%?

Indeed, that is correct.

EDIT: Well at least it works with 6th sense. Don't see why Deadeye wouldn't qualify.

The ELC is a fun, stress-free little thing. Anything beyond that requires a high level of mastery because you will see tier 10s.

I just watched an ELC AMX do its thing, get three kills... and dodge off a bridge into the river.

The really amusing part is that at game start, our team's ARL V39 also drove off a bridge. Just a lot more slowly.

Got my fourth Ace Mastery Badge:








I could have gotten Top Gun, but I decided victory was more important. Still, can't figure out how I managed to kill all those tanks and also get a Steel Wall.....
