I'm still deciding whether to spend free xp to get to the L/70 or whether I should just continue farming away with the Long 88 until I can grab it with XP earned on the KT. I love the KT (not that I'm great with it) but it feels a bit under gunned at Tier 8 wit the Long 88.

The inaccuracy on the KV-1S final gun is starting to piss me off. I really should have brought my KV-1 crew on this tank...

In other news I sold my M6 There are two M6s in this game the M6 with the 90 mm gun and the one without it. The former is a great tank really loved it, the latter not so much.

With the free slot I bought my first Tier 7 tank: T29, it looks like a Mammoth tank and it plays like one. I also faced my first Tier IX tank (T-59) and I killed him, well more like it he rammed me which killed us both, I got a kill and the kamikaze medal.

I can't believe though that the 90mm gun is already is so poor against high tier opponents and the funny thing is T29 starts with the M1A2 gun as stock. I would have probably raged quit if I went to the T29 via the M4A3E2.

Oops.. Right, the 10.5 on the KT is the L68 ..

Anyways, what I said still stands! *cough*

That said I think I'll miss your aggressive assault gun tactics. "The Chieftain" has a video from E3 where he goes through the German tech tree and he talks about the StuH battle doctrine of mounting a gun big enough to blow up the entire building where your enemies are hiding in/under/behind!

I am still aggressive with the L/70. The only difference is that I now machine snipe rather than go for a one-shot.

I actually unlocked the KV-1S last night, but I didn't shell out the money for it yet, given what I've heard from the other people here. However I'm still keeping the KV-1. Getting used to it, and the 85mm isn't that bad, even with a crew that isn't on 100%. Great for sniping, to my surprise, but for some reason when I use the howitzer I couldn't get the OMG-levels of damage that could be done to ME. Heck, most of my HE shells seem to bounce off...

Just finished and elited the KV-1S and about 30k from finishing the KV-1, both are extremely OP.

Word of warning though the KV-1S sucks until you get the 122mm was down to 30% win ration at one point.

The T29 is one of my most loved tanks, although I prefer the T32 to it.

By the way, not trying to rain on your parade or anything, but did you not know about the Heavy Destruction Weekend? I keep playing my M6 and wait for the event to buy my T29.

This was in Widepark, where I spent much of my time trying not to be seen and to outshoot a T1 Heavy before his friend flanked me. Then I looked up at the scoreboard and was all "Huh?"

I saw a guy with a derpgun VK2801 absolutely destroy six tanks in Himmelsdorf. That might be the one tank I'm going to start with a derpgun.

Highly likely that player is packing HEAT - the ~4000 credit shells.

Checking the EU January calendar I don't think we have a heavy destruction weekend, we have a light tank frenzy weekend instead. *phew*

What gun are you using on the KV-1, the 80mm one? Anyway remind me if I ever face you in battle (the odds are not that great) that I should run away and avoid you as much as possible. ;P

^ Nice! In a top tier battle in the Hetzer you can just roll up and devastate the enemy with the derp pretty much with impunity. That said I don't think I've ever gotten a Steel Wall on it..

So, who's excited about the upcoming addition to the German medium tank branch? The new German TD line?



Although it lacks the charm of WW2-era tanks.. the Leopard I is still a nice looking tank and thoroughly embraces MBT doctrine.

I knew it, I KNEW it, I knew they are going to add the Leopard I there somewhere. Dammit WoT, now I have to grind all the way to that tree again. Bastards!

Wil, what version is this for?

Maybe I'll try the new German TD line. Haven't played through any turret-less tank (closest one would be the M3 Lee, but that is another story). Wonder what is the different between the 2 lines.

But they are. From official posts by SerB, they're waiting on a "data package" from Bovington before they start work on the Chieftain. The supposed plan is for the Chieftain to replace the FV215b as the Tier X Heavy, with the latter becoming a Tank Destroyer and given its proper "boxy" turret.
