The Foch, Tiger, and GW Panther were all full heath one-shot kills. Yes, the Foch took 1550 damage from one standard shell.

I know I make questionable decisions in game (thus my 49% overall win rate) but now I'm questioning my other actions such as thinking "french heavies..hmm" and buying a B1...pretty sure I'm going to dislike grinding out that thing.
First English heavies and now french..I must have a thing about going against the grain.

Glutton for punishment. French are very unforgiving. I usually recommend grinding through the M3 Lee to unlock the T1 Heavy and the Sherman. I think it is the nicest intro to the mid tiers.

I forgot all about the fire extinguishers! I won 3 or so today I think. I am more interested in the xp from them personally though right now.

UGGG... The lee.... If it is your first grind, go to the hellcat, every tank along the way to there is good.

Concerning going Lee/T1..Already have T1 (just repurchased it infact) almost have T29 unlocked via the Jumbo even though I'm going T20 instead, just wanted to unlock both before selling Jumbo.
Black Prince crew almost has their first skill finished...pretty dead set on continuing up the English line BUT the thought of auto loader French heavy intrigued me..so B1 grind it is.

3 auto fire extinguishers + the double xp was pretty sweet. We hit a rough spot & lost battles 8 through 12, but we ended up winning 60% for the night. It was good playing with you, as always. It worked out well that the wins all happened to come in groups of 3.

Sticking with American mediums (want a Patton someday) but the heavies, well I like unique so I'm avoiding the russian/american/german heavy lines right now, just too many of them in most battles..plus I'm a glutton for punishment apparently.

I'm currently on the M5 Stuart, working toward an M7, and plan on continuing down that line.

The problem is I seem to always end up in battles where I'm horribly outgunned and comically underpowered.

I end up running around as fast as possible and rabbit the other guys out, and end up dead when I find them.

*shrugs* I'm still having fun.

When you do come back to the American heavies, I highly suggest that you play the T1 and M6 before jumping into the T29. There aren't too many tanks more useless that a T29 with the stock 76mm gun. You can unlock the 90mm through the M6.

Actually already have the M6 unlocked, I just repurchased the T1 simply because I sold it too soon the first time with a losing record. The plan is to get a winning record with it, sell it again and then put the crew back in the barracks like before.

I was cleaning out my "depot" and realized I still had all the T1 modules so I figured what the heck let's try the T1 once again.

If you are intrigued by the autoloader - the American T-71 (light), T69 and T54E1 (mediums) and T57 Heavy are all autoloaders. It is a bunch of fun to be in the T57 and take a full health enemy out in 8 seconds

The really nice thing about the American line is that the tanks (for the most part) have great barrel depression.

The Chinese 59-16 light also has an autoloader but the gun is pretty meek.

hope this helps.

Hey Mike,

The M5 Stuart is Tier 4 light tank.
Take a look at this chart:
http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/images/...king_Chart.png

...as you can see, at Tier 4 the light tanks start to draw higher battle tiers (in this case up to battle Tier 8 (which is different than tank tier 8 btw..) ).

Try using it as a passive scout when you draw higher battle tiers and your gun is useless. Hide in bushes and do NOT fire your gun. Light up the enemy for your team. You'll get tons of spotting damage. The better you do it the more impact you'll have on the battle.

Hope this helps
Have fun!

cheers,
Ed
