Having hell of a fun with StugIII, finaly a tank that doesn't require perfect hitting to do damage lol, good penetration is good!

Tiger P is decent fun too, but rather squishy even with the "so awesome" front armor.

Man I love the diversity of gameplay with this game.

I've got the slow as molasses KV-3...then the USSR line that has the A-20 and BT-7 that goes like 90km/h...then some arty...what a fun mix. Taking some tanks out with arty, then taking out the BT-7 and driving circles around tanks that cant get ya with the automatic gun and just annilating the tanks from behind.... So great. Just need more silver now...

Whoever doubted go S51 through KV line. Just do it, just now I loaded up AP rounds with the 203mm. Boom 1500 dmg on IS-3 one shot killed, next shoot, 1599 dmg on a Jagdtiger, just after it he was it by a friendly and died. The AP rounds are awesome, travel time is a bit longer than regular HE, they pen 260mm on average, but if unlucky you might only track them. But HE is mostly used anyway for longer ranged, the splash is great. If they're grouped you can easily hit one and damage the other tank next to it

Yeah, I now what you mean. Since I am still pretty much a noob in this game I still find it a lot of fun. It seems that some people have so much time into it that it is no longer fun for them. Is worth trying out the A-20 if I already have the T-50?

I'm grinding away in my T-28 to get to the KV-1. I will then head to the KV-2 and finally end up with at S-51. I have the SU-26 and its been fun playing with that. Will probably just keep that until I get to the S-51. I wished they didn't nerf if like they did this last upgrade but it is what it is - still fun.

Most of the tanks I have in the garage are currently Russian. I have the Stuart from the Chinese line and grinding away at that, too. I have the itch for something German but need more coins and the Russians have been keeping me happy.

It's so great hearing people who are new to the game about their grinds. biggrin.gif After 4 T10's and nearly every line to T10 the game kinda get's boring.

The A-20 is alright. It has slow acceleration and moderately bad turning but a good top speed. The gun on it is nothing special either. It is adequate but you need to load a few gold into it if you want to damage anything other than arty.

Keep going the Russian arty line if you want the SU-8 is extremely fun. Stop at the SU-14 and go with the S-51 instead though. Makes the grind much easier as it is a better artillery piece all around.

As for the Germans... You should work up the American line first before you take that on if you want to participate in clan wars. I lead a clan and the only thing used in clan wars is the T110E5 and then the IS-4 and IS-7 if we need them. The German tank line is fun for pubs but far to weak for clan wars.

A-20 is slow with the first engine. Not sure what the 2nd will bring. But I haven't been impressed. My guess is its because my crew is only like 52%...gold them and I bet its super fast. It's got a lot higher speed than the T-50 tho which I like....BT-7 is crazy fast with a 75% crew. I hit 90kmh down a hill...it was nuts!


I've gone down the KV route. KV-1 was a beast! T-150 is sweet but only with the best gun. And same with the KV-3, gotta have the 175pen gun or else everything is mostly useless head on with tier 7's and 8s. I'm holding out on some of the upgrades for the KV-3 to get the KV-4 tank. Although it doesn't look much better gun wise... The kv3 is SOOO slow! gosh its dumb how slow it is. The major advantage it has is making sure you stay low with it and only show the turret, the upgraded turret is like 180mm armor so its hard to penetrate so you should be golden with that if that's all that's showing. I've got the higher ROF 105mm gun with 175pen 200damage, I like it, especially with the Large caliber round rammer or whatever its called that has 10% faster reload time. That and a fully upgraded crew and it makes for an accurate, speedy gun.

I also like the M4A2A8 or whatever its called. The Sherman Jumbo. It looks dumb and its a really old tank, actually saw it 2 nights ago on the history channel, but its got a decent gun with great ROF on it too. I've found that has granted me equal points between that tank on tier VI as the KV3 on tier VII. So my next tanks will most likely be the KV4 and T29. Cant wait for the T29. I go against that tank and its like impossible to penetrate when facing it....

I just love the Chinese T34-1 ! It's really great. Bouncy turret, can bounce 225+ guns in close combat, just go against any tanks side and watch them bounce while you're shooting away! (Unless they pen cupolas) It is farily fast and manouverable, good dmg / pen, but fairly high aim time.

Have you guys tried "War Thunder" ? Its beta atm and only has aircraft but they are adding tanks and ships, well worth a look, its heaps better than WOP (I was alpha and beta tester).

Yeah, It's pretty good alright. I got WoP too but War Thunder is way more fun atm IMO. Went down german line sofar, got Stuka, HE 111, and BF110 smile.gif Quite fun blasting ground target and the occasional airplane if an opurtinity arises. Graphics are really nice, works wonder at 5760x1080 maxed out.

What's up with WOT.... I've got my frame rendereing limit to 1 in NVCP and it goes to like 95% of my GPU and 100% on my CPU on 1 core...seriously? a highly overclocked GTX670 and it almost maxes out the card? huh? That can't be right...I feel like the game is horribly optimized. Hopefully with some updates they'll be able to optimize the graphics engine. Then I'll actually be able to play it on my laptop with something higher than 30fps.... I think honestly making the graphics engine optimized will also open up some new market with people that don't have as high end PC's that want to play this game and get something more than 20fps....

Oh well. KV3 is comin along pretty good. I think I just tend to wait till there's 2x XP per day to play now.... I'm at like 24k XP when I need 55k XP for the KV4 and that'll be quite some time from now....ug
