MS-1 For a tier one it hunts real nice.
Marder II It'll punch above it's weight all day long.
Easy 8 Great flanker.
T49 Scouting TD with a punch.
Want: SU-85 with the 107.

T-20 is not a keeper for me, neither is the T25/2.
The KV's will all go down the road too eventually.
I plan to go with an IS and French light.

The US heavies look like the way to go, those 110's and 103's tear shit up.

Grinding the IS line, the Tiger line, and the SU TD line, may eventually go for the Patton. Might get a slugger next.

So it seems to me that the heavy tank douchebaggery has calmed down in the last couple of days, especially considering I'm 6-2 in that time frame. Had one last night where the top 5 tanks on each side were two Tier X and three Tier IX.....and they all knew how to play. Anybody else seen the same, or have I just been lucky?

I should add
-T-20 will go. It's OK, but it just doesn't do it for me. Crew will Go tho the Patton when I eventually get it.
-T25/2 will go. It's too slow for my tastes, and the gun just isn't cutting it for me. Not sure I'f I'm going to continue down the US TD line.
-Pershing. Not sure about this one either. By the time I build up the 100k more exp I need for the Patton, I'll either love it or hate it. It's crew should be pretty bad ass by then so that will make the decision even harder since I could move them instead of the T20 crew.
-SU-26 It's fun but the range sucks and it doesn't do much damage. I should move up soon. One thing about the short range though. It forces me to hide in spots that arty doesn't usually hang out in. Because of this, the scouts often miss me and I end up being the only arty left. It also give me some interesting shooting angles and I often can hit tanks that would normally be safe from arty.

Same here.
I had several good games last night, and no real blowouts due to crappy teams.
Might also be a mid week thing. I expect the weekend to bring out the idiots again.

I still had a couple battles where everyone went to the line and sniped at each other. I'm getting about 50/50 decent players and crappy players.

I had to charge a T14 with my M7 last night. He was the scout I shot him and knocked his health down as he was heading towards me, missed the next shot, figured I was going to die anyway so I charged him weaving, just before I hit him a got a shell in and fired. He died and I died. There was much LOLing.

I just made my coolest kill, the last guy on the enemy team (M7) was making a mad dash for his hopelessly lost base. I was tooling at maximum speed in my SU 100 through terrain, and manage to land a shot at him from 300 meters, taking him out. Pure luck, but one of those times i wish that i was using video capture.

So I'm still a noob at this game and have only played a handful of times. I got like 4 kills total and just figured out the tech trees and research for upgrades. But I am totally clueless as to all the different types of tanks. Is there a place to read up on this stuff or is it all just learn by doing? Should I be upgrading my crew experience first?

As I have been off work I have been playing quite a bit lately....however I think the meds do make me make some bad moves....my W/L ratio has dropped 2 points just this week......eh I don't care still having fun.

If I do end up off work for an extended time I may do a prem. account for a month or so.

I have also decided that the Jadgpz IV just flat sucks....I have been in so many tier 9 battles it is not even funny

I swear I've been nerfed.
Bounced a Derp round off the side of a KV-1 tonight, then "dinged" the ass of a T29. Both at about 25 yards. Then they tore me a new one while I drank a cup of coffee waiting to reload.

Arty is what is getting me....I bet 9 out of 10 deaths is by arty. I would bet if there was a box to check that would take arty out of the game 99% of the people would take it.

That and the stupid red screen is really ticking me off.
