The IS-3 you were nailing at the beginning was facing away from you so his front was perfectly flat and the snapshot to the JagTig88's lower glacier as fiiiiine! You did bounce >50% of the shots you threw at the IS-6es though.

All of that said though, you're still playing 2nd line support sniper, far enough back that you weren't drawing enemy fire and the fire you did draw was from some pretty awful baddies (AMX M4 leading from the front and climbing a hill!? Crazy!). From my perspective, you basically performed the exact role that the Lowe is supposed to! From your description I thought you were brawling all out or peekabooming..

Regarding the Comet, I mentioned that I absolutely hated it at the start, and at one point had a 33% or so win rate on it, but it eventually grew on me. Before I transfered to the Centurion, I think I had a 53% win rate on it. This, despite the propensity of the MM to put it on the TOP of most battle lists. No pressure yes?

It definitely performs MUCH better with a fully-trained crew though. The guys I used on it were veterans of the Crusader and Cromwell, so they actually had at least two skills/feats on them already before I got it. After that, well, when you see a slope, use it pronto, and never ever brawl, unless you see a damaged and solo heavy out in the open.

Regarding the AT-7, ffffff, need better guns. Hey Pen, any advise on positioning in some of the mixed terrain maps?

I tracked him then wanted to keep nailing him there but i think he repaired. My tactics are usually to track so team can help and shooting tracks usually lead to module damage. I do brawl 90% of the time just not that game. Touma plays with my lowe often and he can tell you that i don't sit back much if at all. Did you see me get stuck in the pothole when i was about to finish off that Super in the end? And i only bounced 1 shot off the IS-6 when it dropped low, i was aiming at the center hatch. The rest of IS-6 shots were all to track. In fact IS-3, IS-6, Lowe were all tracked.

$187.17 doesnt seem to be expensive for a F2P game

Well today is my payday, so I might fork some cash for the anniversary weekend. Though only to free up some free exp for the AT-8's modules.

Also, the Type-62 is up for offer again? Nice, I can finally use those Chinese guys again!

I am not sure what you mean since i always push with the AT-7, unless it is a defending game.

On second thought, I'll probably restrain myself from buying the VK 4502 (P) Ausf. A and Ferdinand. Doesn't seem worth it to free experience to those for a discount of only 1.5 million.

I think you mean AT-8, since the AT-7 can start out with enough firepower to at least make a difference in Tier VII, unlike the AT-8 that's undergunned stock.

And listen to Pen3. There's a reason the "AT" in the British TD line means "Assault Tank". Camping with an AT series vehicle is wasting its potential. As a rule of thumb, just go where the rest of the heavies go

Hmm, I could get the KV-5... except that for a giant armored brick with an astromech unit, it's a very ugly armored brick.

Getting the Type 62 would be amusing because I would end up using the two guys from the NC-31 in it. I'd also probably end up staging the Tank Man shot with that freakish scarecrow.

100% income bonus on a bunch of popular vehicles... oh dear.

Whoops, yeah, it's the AT-8, which just keeps the final weapon of the AT-2. Kind of annoyed that it only starts to be useful for its tier with the 17 pounder, which is its last gun, but there you go. As for leading pushes, experience has taught me that it's actually really hard to support a push, as it also requires heavies to actually know what they need to do... which is 50-50 in tier 6.

MY F***ING GODS

So I purchase the SU101 now now it goes on sale, along with equipment. I could have saved a whole 800,000 silver and decked out my new TD completely. I hate WG sometimes.
