The Leopard isn't a very fun tank (bad maneuverability+bad gun) so sure why not.

Yeah, the Leopard has some problems.

The VK2801 is a bit more maneuverable than the Leopard, but still bleeds a lot of speed in tight turns. I really couldn't duel in it, I had to make wide turns, shoot, never stop moving, and try to disengage (while driving deeper into enemy territory, because a tight 180 turn would knock me down to 30-40 KPH and some Tier X would vaporize me). The Tier V 105mm derp gun can damage things, but really doesn't impress Tier 8-10 unless you've got HEAT loaded.

Of course, this is also because I didn't really try passive scouting in it; the camo values for it aren't too bad, but I didn't want to reassign my best scout crew to it either. Passive scouting should at least be possible, and with a camo net it should be able to run up to a forward position and hide.

But I wanted to try what everyone else seems to do with it, pack a derp gun, and beat on things. It probably would do better with that in packs, like the GUP clan game.

And this description is oriented toward higher-tier games. It's pretty nasty on low-tier games, but those are extremely rare considering its MM starts at Tier 7.

Still have it in the garage though.

T-25, enough said.

Also, use Off-Road Driving to cut down on the bleeding.

The driver that I put in the VK2801 had 75% Off-Road Driving. Wasn't a huge change.

I still want to practice with the VK2801 more; mostly right now, though, the extra learning curve for it isn't worth the time versus my other grind trees. After all, at the moment there's nothing after it.

Wouldn't clutch breaking be better for improving turns rather than off road driving?

It depends on the tank. The VK 2801 has good traverse (48 deg/s) but relatively bad terrain resistance, which is why it bleeds speed when turning.

It also accelerates poorly, which is another thing that Off-Road can help out, somewhat.

I still think I win with Ted Bundy. Unless you're referring to an excessive tendency for that tank to catch fire.

I think seeing that much Lynette all the time would distract me.

A witches tank. It must be burned before it turns other tanks into Newts.

Last night I had the most horrifying losing rate of my life: 34 loses IN A ROW. I couldn't even do the x2 because of that. No matter how I played, my team ALWAYS find the way to lose half of their member on the first 3 minutes.

Just realized that using premium I can grind credits with the E50 better than I can with a tier 5.

North America, at least: Valentine's Day Bonus Code for one day of premium.

And I noticed that there's a gift shop opening for the JT88. Seeing as my TDs stop at the StuG and I don't really plan on going up the line, it's probably not something I should do, since... real money.

Okay people, a question

In my third acc I have almost 22k xp on the wolverine, so which tank should I proceed to, the Hellcat or the Jackson?

On one side i'm conflicted, because the hellcat is very fast but ANYTHING can pen it (The pleasure to oneshot hellcats in my KV-2 is priceless), meanwhile the Jackson has good armor but mediocre speed, but it can bounce some shots fired against it.

Do it only if you plan on getting the Ferdinand/Jagdtiger/JagdPz E-100 through Tiger P. Those three TDs have six crew members, which fits the 8.8 cm PaK 43 Jagdtiger

If you're the type who snipes at the rear and/or generally has a good handle for medium tank handling, the Hellcat is overall the superior tank. While you're not gonna circlestrafe with it, the Hellcat is capable of some awesome flanking moves due to its speed, and said speed also allows you to get to the best camping spots before anyone else does.

On the other hand if you find yourself preferring some close-range TD action, the Jackson is better in that regard.

Also, Patch 8.4 Public Test is up and running.

With the help of some good platooning, I'm back to one win from 51.5%. It'll probably go horribly wrong again, of course.

Moved out of the Sherman Jumbo to a decent heavy:



And, since Teru got to see it in a game first, here is the horror that I've been alluding to for a couple of days now:
