It's not the best scout though as the base view range is only 390. But when I play for missions I just run Vert Stab + Vents + Optics and Food, gives me enough with my 4 skill 96% crew.

After a 1 1/2 year break from the game I have to say the Japanese tanks are not as bad as I thought they would be.

They are all bad except the T8, 9 and 10 Mediums.

Random window at south spawn that you can only get to in light tanks I think proves to be rather stronk in T54 Ltwt

Meh meh mahhhh....

I ditched this game last night. Besides the countless hours I've wasted my life playing this game I feel there's very little return, if any...

Yes, its satisfying to have a great game...but I feel the grind this game presents, unless you have premium, is too steep.. earning credits is nearly impossible to do on a consistent basis in tier 8+ if your on a non-prem account... with losses, the sweeps the enemy teams do are just unreal, just feeling squashed no matter how good you are as a player...

I've had fun getting upto tier 10... I never though I'd get there but I ended up with 3 tier X tanks. Just the gameplay along with the engine and the spotting mechanics are just down right awful at tier X. Maybe for tier 6 and below the invisible tanks are ok, but when you've got a bat chat 50m from you pounding you while remaining unspotted is just down right wrong... Not to mention arty at this point... you see a tier 7 and above arty and basically even splash damage does 400+...tier 9 and up and you're talking 800+.... My STB, no matter how well I maneuver... can easily be destroyed by a direct hit from any tier x arty basically... Ok maybe not the BC but it still can do like 600dmg per shot...

I've had an incredible amount of fun playing the game while it was fun to play..but now its just the same old mindless gameplay. I don't think I can take it anymore, in-fact, I can't...so I uninstalled...

Oh well... I have good memories but this game's progression is slower than this upcoming election day..ugh.

I don't wanna defend sky cancer in any way but just to correct some facts:
All T8 and higher arties basically have the same guns apart from few exceptions. So any T8 arty (Or S-51) can pretty much oneshot T10 Mediums.
Also with the recent update the engine received, it runs pretty damn well now.
And spotting mechanics are pretty good for my taste atleast, you won't have a batchat shooting you at 50m and being invisible, no matter what. That is almost proxy range.
TL;DR Arty is broken as hell.

But yeah, I don't get it how people can enjoy this without premium, the game even shows you how much you WOULD HAVE earned if you play without it. Just to annoy you.

So sandbox is beta test of the next patch? Changes to some of the maps would be nice. Would be great to see some new maps. Even some of the old maps. What happened to all the Asian themed maps with a lot of buildings, and varying terrain? Fields are fun every once in a while. I would also take a huge nerf for arty shots in exchange for greater accuracy. There is nothing more aggravating then a fully aimed arty shot that misses by 2 feet and does nothing. Especially if I lead a moving target. On a side note, getting close to that STA-1. Have the 2 been training the crew on that. Should be a fun tank.

Was described as testing in a wargaming video I think I used a bad label.
