Seriously thinking of retiring the Crusader and moving up to the Cromwell. However, if I do, I think I'll need pointers from Kimidori in the Way of the UK Flanker. :P

The Cromwell is a longer-term goal of mine; I'm still amassing the free XP to jump from the Cruiser IV to the Crusader. (The funny thing is, the Cruiser IV itself is a decent vehicle; I think I'm more frustrated with the extremely uneven team quality that I still encounter at Tier 3.)

It gets worse when you get to the Crusader, as there are seriously a LOT of stuff in that tier that can kill you in 1 or 2 hits. Also not a lot of maps can be used for what the Crusader is good at: outflanking.

After 270 games in the StuG and six or seven in the Dicker Max, my StuG crew finally completed their first skill training. And I'm still debating whether I should keep the gunner's Deadeye perk or switch it to Designated Target, like I did with most of the other vehicles where I chose Deadeye as a perk. All of them are configured as snipers.

Though I did set training to Deadeye on the Tiger and T-34, for entirely different reasons.

If you're good at pinpoint sniping, you can use Deadeye to track enemies and kill them. It's not a good idea for the irregular Dicker Max though, unless you want to basically pound modules out.



Here's an example of what a L/70 StuG III with 100% Deadeye is capable of:







What was interesting about the battle was how I managed to get three of my kills by tracking the target. They were really hopeless in their position since they exposed their side or underbelly to me. I loved penetrating them to pieces.

I don't understand how you can play only low tier games. I just can't seem to handle newbie teams after a few matches and go back to Tier 7+. Well i guess it is sometimes pretty fun to blast newbies with 105mm derp. Or i just run out of patience.

^ Sometimes playing lower tier games feels more like "real" tank combat to me. The idea of tanks, even heavy tanks, speeding about a field taking 7-8 hits and not exploding feels odd. I think the most adrenaline fueled games are sometimes when the field is almost entirely M4s and Pz4's all throwing around derps!

The sweet spot for me is Tiers 4, 5, and 6. Below that and team quality is a real crapshoot; above that and it seems that games come down to three-minute-long tank peekaboo and dice rolling.

It seems like all the low tiers are fun if you're rolling with a PzIV derp, M4 derp, Hetz derp, VK2801 derp, KV1S derp and maybe a Cromwell.

LOL I see Pen3 has derp on the mind.

I've used a howitzer only once on any of my tanks, and that's the Sherman. I suppose it just reflects my non-aggressive play style (and the fact that I like to snipe rather than brawl).

Well i ran though Pz4 initially with the 75 and it wasn't till i started the Churchill line that made me switch. Nothing like a Pz4 or M4 killing you in two shots lol.

The PzIV derp didn't feel safe to me. The M4 derp is a nice combination of hull-down and decent maneuverability.

I personally wouldn't classify the KV-1S and the Cromwell as "low tier" tanks, especially since their firepower and performance already put them on par with Tier VII and VIII tanks. Also, the KV-1S doesn't need its U-11 derp gun once it gets its 122mm D-2-5T. Not only does the D-2-5T have far better pen than the U-11, it also has much better damage than the U-11's HEAT rounds.

StuG III. I love sniping in it and earning premium account level credits all on my regular account.

I meant the 122 for KV1S or else i would've just said KV-1 since it has that howi. The reason i think 1-6 is low tier is because of those tanks i listed as they are very OP and doesn't get balanced out till you hit T7. A t5-6 Heavy has to watch out for derp and KV1S.

Derping without a turret is dangerous... thus, as you have heard from me repeatedly, I prefer Sniper StuG over StuH StuG.

Speaking of derp... got five kills in the Derp Sherman, on eight shots, eight hits, and seven penetrations. Himmelsdorf. I have to give credit to the other team, though... I started partway down the hill, so I ran south down the 7-column alley toward the enemy spawn, took a wrong turn, and ended up climbing the hill behind them—almost entirely unnoticed.

Then the derping began.

As Wil can attest to, I was a virtual monster when I was in StuH mode. Changing to StuG mode only further unleashed my wrath.
