Maybe. The two Spartan awards I have for the Panther must mean something.

Disagree. If it were possible, you should trade anything and everything: be it skill or knowledge .. for luck. It's better to be lucky than good

Oops, apparently I can't read right now. So instead, here's a picture of a cat driving a tank.

I dunno about you guys, but I'm not feeling the 105 mm derp on the Sherman, as it requires real close-in fighting that I'm not sure my connection can handle. Sure, it does huge damage even to heavies, but one spike and goodbye Sherman. I think I'll just wait until I get the 76 mm.

You have to have 100% trained crew, rammer, and gun laying drive to bring out the full potential of the 10.5 cm. It's not for everyone.

I think the bigger irony yesterday (after I got back from watching the Hobbit) was that I actually had better luck with my Tiger than my Sherman for a change. That said, the final gun seems SO far away.

After transfering all of my crews, my hit ratio drops noticeably. It's still good, but not as godly as before, seeing I can't hit anything fast enough at 400m away. My latency is roughly 300ms, so I can't afford to waste any moment for aiming.

I've noticed a number of pictures of TOGs being positioned in ways such that if they die they completely block road/bridge access.

It amuses me.

That's... a valid tactic actually. While you can move downed tanks, the TOG's sheer size and mass will make such an underaking difficult to say the least.

It was even more valid a tactic, back when tank carcasses stay rooted to the spot where they met their demise, and could not be budged. There were players back in the day who blocked access into half of Erlenberg for everyone else with their T-26s.

Rammer is a must, 20% of loading speed is huge. Personally I don't used the gun laying drive but it will definitely help especially when you're trying to peek-a-boo damage or whatever it's called.

It's kind of funny I use the exact same gun (in terms of statistics) on the Panzer IV and before I got the Sherman I really hated it but after using the derp gun on the Sherman I started to appreciate it. Using HE shells instead of AP shells made a difference I suppose.

Huh? I thought that derp gun can only use HE shells? And isn't Rammer only reduce 10% loading time?

I was talking about the Panzer IV's 10.5 cm KwK 42 /L48 which is really similar to the M4 derp gun but can use AP shells as well which I did at the beginning. Until I got the M4's derp gun and then I switched to HE shells on 10.5cm KwK and play the PzIV similar as the M4 with much better success.

You're right about the rammer my bad.

You know, that's what I've always found strange about my Panzer IV. The 105 mm is on the research list, but I've never been allowed to allocate research points or buy the darned thing. The tank actually got to elite without it, which has bugged me ever since.

My very first match with my brand-new M103:



That IS-3 was the very first thing my M103 unloaded its ammo on using the 120mm T122 gun. One moment it was undamaged, the next it was DEAD. Freaking GLORIOUS

While I have used the M103 in the Test Servers, I didn't realize just how nimble this thing is compared to the T32 until I tried it out today. After endlessly using the T32 to grind to this thing, I find that the M103 handles faster and is more maneuverable than the T32, and that's with stock engine and tracks.

You have a rather... interesting problem Myssa Rei

To be honest, I did research the 105, but I don't use it much. I have recently sold the module and will probably not visit it again. The problem with the Panzer IV is that its not much of a brawling tank. The KV-1 is a brawl tank through and through, and can even ram a IV to death if necessary. I play my IV as a close support sniper, a role I have most success at.

Now that's something.
