Burn. Also, I think I may have seen you in a match a last weekend, Myssa. Huh. Fancy that.

Anyway, while I'm pretty much broke, I have enough gold for another 24 hours of Premium, so I tossed it down and will be spending the next 24 hours grinding gold on my T5s. I'm thinking of getting a Su-85 TD, or working my way through the German line in order to get the Panzer IV, which I shall then call Yukari. XD The only one of my tanks to be named.

Pen and Sahin have been keeping me on tier 9 ever since the weekend started. Must be because of the crew exp bonuses...

What's your name in the NA server, and what cluster? Sticking with the East Coast, as the West Coast's low server population wreaks havoc on the MM.

I currently bounce between NA East and NA West. Somehow, when I'm on NA West, I do better in my Cruiser II and Valentine, but I do better on NA East with my Churchill I and T-34.

I meant to say grinding credits. Y'know, I have bad things to say about ME3's store, but at least the credits are a bit easier to grind than in WoT! But the prayer is still the same everywhere:

GRIND FOR THE GRIND GOD! CREDITS FOR THE MP STORE!

i really wish I could have premium for this weekend. I'm getting 60k aprox in credits per won with my tier 5s, which could be 120k aprox with premium.

Anyway... just played my 3rd alt and started the grind to both, the T25AT and the T25/2. Going to grind the first to get the 105mm so when unlock the Proto, it could pack a bigger punch.

You will love the 120 when you it unlocked under 9 reload prolly 8.71 secs same gun as the T34 so it's got very good pen.

Kimi proves that the darned thing (the Cromwell) is an absolute beast when played right. Its speed and agility more than makes up for the lack of damage.

Wish it had vert stab. Too much shaking. The gun was much more reliable on Churchill I.

Kind of analogous to the 57mm on KV-1 vs T-34.

I have both the Cromwell and the Easy Eight, and the vertical stabilizer is a noticeable help on the E8, even if the Cromwell does better in a lot of other categories.

Honestly I think all Cromwell has over E8 is an overall better gun, but that's negated by the ability of E8 to mount vert stab. E8 has more gun depression as well and isn't much slower. Also the Cromwell is a bit huge. Everyone likes hitting it

In my experience top speed does not matter a lot unless you like the thrill of running at full speed and going "NASCAR YEEEEEAH". Game-wise, anything above 40 is good enough for resetting base in the middle of a game.

Edit: Apparently E8 turns 4 degrees faster than Cromwell as well. I actually thought Cromwell would be faster. Hmm...

I am now done with grinding for my Leopard 1 and T-62A.

Which means I am free for platooning 5 ~ 8 and actually enjoy this game as its meant to be enjoyed...

I tend to use the Cromwell as a fat scout, though I think finding out that it can jump the Westfield bridge has made me a little nuttier in it than I need to be. Still, it can half-court pretty well if it is the fastest/smallest tank in a high-tier game... but against high tiers I will usually just keep driving instead of making any attempt at all to stop and shoot, at least until I know where everyone is.

The E8 is slow enough to not get into the trouble that the Cromwell does, and with BiA on it I can use it as a flanking damage factory. The extra gun depression on its top gun vs. the Cromwell's top gun has saved my butt a few times also.

The Cromwell's raw speed is still nice though... if you do break through, there's not much that can be done to stop you from rampaging all over the enemy arty.

Well, my third acc is about to get it's first tier 7, the T25/2. Only 100xp to go. After I unlocked it I will spent time in my secondary acc to grind to the Cromwell.

cromwell have 2 advantage compared to other T6 med

amazing acceleration
reliable gun (good RoF/DPM, Accuracy and pen)

dont have crom but have T49 and I can see how this advantage is highly desirable

acceleration mean that you abel to react fast and move fast. especially if you got spotted. you can move fast enough to evade enemy fire. increased the survivability. you also able to go quick enough to evade gun shot and circle the tank and shot the weak point

reliable gun means if you point your gun at your enemy. it will AND do the damage. this is make the tank experience more enjoyable since all you do is point and *click* *click**click**click**click**click*

To be honest I find the Easy8 an easy kill in most tanks they're pretty sluggish and gun is fairly poor.

Cromwells on the other hand can be downright dangerous at times they're so fast they can turn up anywhere, it's excellent flanker with a gun that can rip almost anything apart in no time.

It starts out that way (was the same for me) but once you get a real feel for it I think you'll enjoy it.

For me I played it like a light and I'd usually hovered behind the rest of the team supporting until I spotted an opening I could flank with.

Tonights season was a bit rough and MM is definitely going hard on the T49 and out of the 5-6 games I had with it none where same tiered but that said I still ended up with more wins than loses.

I also managed a couple of decent matches (and an awful one) in the chaffee and picked up a patrol duty medal for the first times in ages.

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

That aside I just bought the T28 so I can move up the Russian heavy line and man do I feel the pain of all those T28's I've slaughtered in the past. Its not a bad tank by any means but its so long and lightly armored its easy pickings to anyone with a bigger gun.

On the bright side you already researched the best gun of the T-28. Still after you've gotten used to the tier 6 and 7 grinds the tier 4 grind seems like a joke.
