That's not me kidding btw. I hate the very existence of that arty. XD It's just baaad.

When I had the M37 it was fantastic range was amazing and I would regularly get 1-4 kills per game. but you are right the priest is completely crap. I'm only going through them because the higher ones do about 2k damage with each shot. I've also heard that the french arties end up get auto loaders instead of having to have a crew member loading.

Only the BatChat 155 gets the drum-magazine and it's a 4-round drum at that. So it's nice, but it's a 65 second reload. tongue.gif

Also, ALL of the tier 7+ artillery do around 2k per shot... only if you hit the tank right. You normally just hit for around 800-1200 on average. Part of the reason I like the JPE-100 is due to my ability to act like a heavily armored direct-fire artillery piece. wink.gif

Got a quick question for you guys...I just realized something.

Ok so I've got a tier 6 T-150 tank, USSR.
Before that I had the KV-1. I'm sucking at the T-150. Like I think I've played 20 rounds with maybe 3 kills... The gun doesn't penetrate anything and I'm like losing silver...its dumb...
Here's something I noticed though. I had the cammo net as the Add-on perk for the KV-1. I spent 10gold to dismount it, then I was able to mount it to the T-150. Saving me I think 96,000silver. I'm wondering if I can buy a tier 1 tank, buy these add-on's, then dismount them for gold, and mount them on my T-150 tank... is that possible? It's a theory I've got because it would be alot cheaper with a tier 1 tank than a tier 6 for those add-ons. But I'm not sure if its only transferable with 1 tier above. It wouldn't make sense to me to only have to spend 50k silver and then 10gold to mount and dismount on a tier 1 tank, then mount it directly to my T-150 tier 6 tank....has anyone else tried this?

I really need to get the ZiS-6....ug. No penetration and when there is, its only like 60 damage. Playing with tier 7 and 8 tanks makes it basically impossible, I'm slow and I won't do any damage to any tier 8 tank...lol Basically I drive around trying not to get spotted and live through the map...not fun....It's like impossible to go against a tier 8 tank with 1400 hit points then I've got 840 and they take off 300pts of me when they hit me and when I actually do do penetration its only like 60-70pts..lol

Man this game is fun! I buy the $6.95 gold every 2 weeks since I can afford it..lol, helps with getting 100% crew members!

As far as mounting equips on larger tanks goes, pay close attention to the names of the item. Often you will see "small shell rammer" on a tier 3 and "large shell rammer" on a tier 8. The small shell rammer will not go on the tier 8.

Also, if you run premium, you generally won't run a silver deficit on any tank below tier 9, no matter how bad you do.

Ah...my theory was wrong. It only works for the cammo net...

I finally figured out the conversion to free xp lastnight..lol costs a ton of gold but I need the XP for my new 107mm gun for my T-150. Without the 107mm my 85mm is pointless, only way it penetrates is if its from behind a tier 8 tank..

Once I get that gun and then I'm able to start saving up for getting the higher HP engine, I should be set to battle with a tier 8 tank...

Anyone else's WoT randomly closing on the barracks page? When I'm in the barracks for a few minutes the game will just randomly close...no lock up, just straight up close. Anyone else have that problem?

Loving my T-150 more now. Got the big gun and almost everything except the last engine upgraded, will take it from 560HP to 700HP..should give me alot more maneuverability and power on the battlefield.

Now I'm beginning to realize how much this game is pay to win..lol I had to convert XP to get my big gun on it, without the gold I'd still be working on the big gun...its so worth it because before it was impossible to go against a tier 8...now I've got a chance. But I had to spend like 800gold to get it and upgrade my crew. So I now realize that I do have to pay for the advantage. Which I guess isn't too bad, the game is awesome and I don't mind paying for it. The game was free to download which I think is awesome!

Engines dont give HP boosts. Only the upgraded turrets do. If it has one to upgrade to.

By far this game is WAY more addicting than BF3 once you get past the learning curve of it...once you get to about tier 3/4 you realize how the game mechanics work and you begin to absolutely love it!
