Pst, Kimi, how's the Soviet Medium line project coming along? If you've gotten the T-44 already, we can platoon. :P

Platoons can be a real timesuck. You have to be disciplined and stick to your original schedule.

So I ran the AMX 12t and VK2801 for an hour or so this afternoon, and I've report that I'm getting a better feel for them--the VK2801 especially, as my previous performance was abysmal.

I saw better performance once I ditched the idea of "having" to be a scout. It's an odd adjustment to make considering that the previous vehicles (AMX ELC excepted) are almost forced into a scout role by stats alone.

If anyone is thinking of playing these tanks, I suggest playing it like the M7 medium.

12ice: Welcome to the role of combat scout.

My experience with the AMX autoloader series is that whoever tells you to run off and scout immediately is an idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about. While it's possible to do that on maps with wide spaces (see Prokorovkha), most of the time you're going to bide your time in a bush somewhere and wait for openings to rush in, unload your mag, then get the hell away from Dodge.

Oh, the AMX 13 75 isn't really much of a step up from the 12t (it has better acceration granted), as the 75mm doesn't do a lot of damage even when you hit a tank in its flank or sides. It's why I was frustrated for much of my tenure on it.

If this is still undecided please. I'm the worst player in the clan, and I don't even participate. This is an AS clan and we roll with the AS gang.

lying isn't nice bro, I roll with whoever I please. I'm thinking of taking a break to go back to BF 3 while I wait for CoH 2 to come out and BF 4. but then again BF 4 will be out by fall or winter.

so taking a hatius might be a bit of a stretch. I might just skip out a week or so, or whenever i feel bored i'll log in. i'm still thinking.

Every so often I get these really good games after some bad ones. In this case, I get Ace Tanker after losing two games, THEN winning two games in a row (both on the T-44).

@Pen3: Do you have the replay for that? I want to see how you make the VKDB work.

Also Sumeragi I assume you're using google translate?

I turned recording off during the horrible x5, but i remember that KV1S was a pain to kill. He was hiding behind boulders and all i could see was his turret and a few inches of hull at 200m. Once i got his HP down low enough i switched to HE and shot him in the face.

My suggestion for the VK 30.02 (D): With 8.5 it'll play like a Tier VIII T-25 in acceleration, depression, and turret traverse. If you also want alpha, be prepared to shell out some premium rounds. Otherwise, use the L/70.

It seems I will never break my 48% winrate barrier.........

Currently, the difference in my win and lose times are 28. Everytime when I manage to lower this gap to 19-21, I will be put in a lose streak until the gap is back to 28-29.

and I have been in this loop for 6 times now..

Is this really normal thing...?

Pretty much. If you're not a great player to begin with, sooner or later you'll run into streaks of bad games.

How about this, instead of going for runs, why not small spurts? I've found success in the 3-game model, but it's only good I suppose for people who have a good amount of free time.

Take note, I've crawled myself up from 46% WR with it. While I think I've actually also grown as a player, I'd grown to also learn when to NOT try press my luck too.



The above is my current standing.

Anyway, it's kind of a modified version of Sumeragi's own suggestions several scores of pages back, where I play a few games in sequence. If I win two games, I stop, do something else, then come back later. The same goes with losing -- if I lose two games, stop, do something else, try again later on.

If you get THREE wins in a row, or three wins in five games, stop. This is where you start seeing gains. They're minor, but if you're patient (and you start to sharpen your skills), you'll see your win rate start to crawl up.

@Myssa Rei

I do stop playing when after win 3-7 games in row for the similar reason as yours but I had hard time stop playing when I lost 3-5 games in row. My feeling during those time was "Aghh....I will win next game for sure. I will keep playing!!" LOL I guess I need to train my mind a bit.

I'm on my learning process. I managed to crawled myself up from 45% WR to 48% WR in this month but I'm staying at 48% for a while now...NEED TO TRY HARDER.

This is my statistic right now. Noting to be pround about it though....

The only times this tank stopped moving in this game was 1) when it got tracked by that ELC, and 2) when it finally met its demise.

only 1149 battle, your win rate can still be easily saved, I was at 47% at about 3000 battle, but now I'm climbed up to 53% and maintaining a consistent >60% win rate per day.

my advice would be: always platoon when you could.

This. Platooning works. My win rate is steadily climbing thanks to platooning with other clan members as often as I can.
