I think the maintenance cost (or lack of maintenance cost at tier III) has something to do with this.

Same here, most assault maps are poorly designed. I only liked the assault versions of Erlenberg and Siegfried line.
Encounter maps tend to be a lot better on average particularly like the encounter version of campingnovka. It's the only good version of that map.

World of Tanks -- Guide Park: King Tiger

Apparently most of us are not doing too good with the KT. Well, looks like wargaming has deemed this to be unacceptable.

http://worldoftanks.com/news/1962-gu...rk-king-tiger/

Random: So I had sent a support ticket in wondering if the achievement system sometimes bugged out (I had a game with 20/22 hits and >1.7K damage and was not awarded Sniper) and was told that sometimes achievements have hidden requirements. For example, Sniper, is not awarded if you do any damage to a teammate. I had accidentally tapped (or was tapped) by a teammate for 10 damage at the beginning of the match = no Sniper award.

Argh, teammates... instead of the usual "GL;HF" that everyone posts during the prep time, I've taken to telling everyone "Drive safely."

And then everyone has a massive car wreck the moment the timer hits 00:00.

not know if trolling, or just very smart *fry*

That's a very classic tactic on tier 1-2 matches on himmelsdorf

Only in Encounter.

That's an old map. They filled in that space now.

Small vehicles can still get in there, and I stuck the back end of my T-34 in there a couple of days ago.

Speaking of the MS-1, when the Super Bowl Weekend sale hits, I might get one again, stuff a really good crew into it, and amuse myself.

I've seen someone use the stairs at the Himmelsdorf train station to good effect.

Imagine the M3 Lee where you control the small turret on the top instead the big gun in the body. And that is the B1 in a nut shell, an awful tank it can only kill Tier III-V light tanks, Tier III-IV medium and that's it. Even when the carebear MM favours you by drawing the B1 in a Tier IV match the game still screws you over by facing Hetzers and other TDs which you can't penetrate from upfront nor can outflank. Although it has to be said the mobility is surprisingly good after the first engine upgrade.

I'm honestly tempted to make a deal with the devil by using gold ammo (800 per shell not bad) but if I did it would feel like I lose something in the inside (pride?).

Once again, I present this screenshot of Ruinberg:



Enough room in the entrance for 1.5 SPGs. Too bad for the Bison, though its corpse being there meant that no one thought to search in that spot for the Lorr.39.

Dual-turret tanks: I can think of ways for them to implement that, but it seems that it would be awkward.

Whee, I may be speaking too soon but it looks like my 80-90% win rate is continuing from last night. Yay! Let's see how this all turns out..

Interesting discussion on the Königstiger.

Seems like my brawling style of using the Königstiger is quite efficient.

Looks like my choices were... correct, the IS-3 & KT are two favorite Tier 8s up there.

Of course, I just barely got my IS-3 last night. I cannot wait to try it out. In the mean time... I can't be too sure which one is a better tank until I fully upgrade my IS-3.

Then I still have the E-75 to play... *sigh*

The KT otoh, is a very good tank. It can do 'anything' & 'everything', especially when placed on top tier. The only problem... terrible speed.

I have to admit, ammo racking KVs and ISs is a load of fun. Single handedly killed a KV-5 after hitting his side, front turret, and ammo rack.
