I'm playing Pz38nA. I have a hard time with those Tier 6-8 Tanks lol

Anyway, what does it mean when the game said "Penetration!" but I inflicted no damage to enemies when I fired at them??

It means that your shot rolled enough to beat their armor, but the subsequent damage roll still did squat to the tank itself. It's pretty common even at higher levels especially if you got a dinky default gun (grumbles as she remembers her time using the VK 3002 DB).

Or you're hitting their module which are breaking them. Those don't count toward the tank's hit point.

I would really recommend reading on all forms of scouting (suicide, active, passive) if you're in the nA don't bother with trying to kill T6-8 tanks.

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Faced a 3vs1 shoot out situation panzer IV, T-28, PzIII A vs my M4 and I won. Those guys were noobs though they didn't even bother to surround me or face me with their frontal armour.

This maybe the case because I was trying to detrack them.

So, I don't have to do damage to destroy track?

Don't worry, I have abandond the thought of trying to kill anything above tier 5 a long time ago.

You'll really have to wait until you get a Tier V tank (Panzer IV, Sherman, T-34 etc) to even hope of fighting back somewhat against anything above that level, and even then you'll need their BEST guns at that. Hang in there.

Yes. Actually it's the other way around. If you actively aiming for the track, you hardly could do any damage. Unless your shell penetrates through the track to inside the tank.

Finally got the 90mm for the M6, and man, how much my life feels better after that. Grinding roughly 25k exp just to see your tank not a useless mass of metal is not something I'd say enjoyable and worth trying.

Oh man, some lines are worse at it than others. I had the distinct displeasure at having to go through the VK 3002 DB just to get to the Panther. The way it's designed is entirely opposite to what the rest of the German line is good at (which is to say, sniping rather than close combat brawling), and while its armor is sloped, all of its guns have cruddy penetration values, which makes it a pain to play since the matchmaker forces you to fight up to Tier VIII battles.

It's actually 30k exp and I feel your pain as I'm 26k exp away from that gun on my M6 and so far I hate this tank. I really miss my T1 HT.

Mostly days, and days. Girls und Panzer really does urge me to go for a IS-4. As well as getting the British Churchill VII as a milestone for a FV215b

You have to flank people and make use of the derping cannon.

I have a feeling that I would stop at the Tiger II...

Meanwhile, did my 1000th battle. My record to date is 50% win, 48% loss, and a depressing 28% survival rate.

I already researched the tier 9 Centurion, now grinding money to buy it.

Make wonder. which one should I focus in

US Turret TD line
French Light/Med Line
German Med line

Thought for German I probably stop at VK DB waiting for Leopard 1 line

Think I'm starting to get to grips with the T49, its a pretty fun little tank even if it is made of cardboard.

This match was an awesome example of how effective flanking the enemy can be with a squad of lights and TDs (myself included) sped up the right flank and spotted targets for a KV that followed behind to dispatch while they were distracted by us. Once we had made it across the map we circled in around their brigade of heavies moving down the left and hand side and caught them in the narrow valley where they had no place to run too.



Like shooting fish in a barrel.

The Hellcat even has thinner armor if my mind serves me right. Around 13mm armor from all sides. I have to be much more careful with that baby when my opponents consist mostly KV-1S which can pretty much one-shot me. Still love it for the gun and its speed.


So if I am not participating in clan war, what's the point of going to tier 10? From what I heard even with premium you can hardly break even the maintenance cost after each match with the tier 10 tanks.

"Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. It's not polite!" óNapoleon Bonaparte

Played Lakeville, in the Hetzer. Ended up behind the building with the tower at the east side of the map, sort of jammed between it and the hillside.

Fortunately a large portion of the enemy team tried to jam themselves into that chokepoint such that I was only really seeing one thing at a time. It got kinda lively.
