You need a crew that looks like this?



Got to see some flying tank glitch:

My crew isn't far behind.. they are just about to their 3rd perk.

p.s. I'm surprised your are not running vents. 5% of 300+% is a lot!

Ferdie is my second tank to make it to the 5K damage club!







It kind of helped that OPFOR was either distracted by my team-mates, or came into my AO all by their lonesome. Two-shotting pesky E4 Super Pershings is fun!

ok, so tech tree differences I have noticed on the test server:

French premium arty is not in the tech tree anymore.

M3 Lee > Arty branch link is gone.

Chaffe > M41 link is now there.

There is now a new Tier V medium premium tank, a M4A2E4 Sherman on the tree, unknown if that is because of some change to it they are testing.

and OH BOY!!!! I need to get on up the american light line. 2 battles in the T71, and I was in the top 3 in damage on each of them! and it just gets more rediculus from there as I went up the line. I had a game in the T57 that had 6k damage, it was lovely to hammer all of the lone heavies to death in 8 secconds.

During the battle when you hit someone for a critical it now tells you.

After battle statistics now when you hover over the critical hits on the first page display what criticals you did I.E: Injured driver, knocked out gun, engine knocked out. Also in the detaild statistics page it shows the number of hits you recieved and then breaks it down to Penitrating, Splash damage, and non penitrating.

Apparently you cannot take screen shots anymore on the test server, but that may just be the test server.

Is the Heffer missing, just because they haven't bothered to place the Premium tanks in the test server tech trees? Or is it unique in this sense, with other Premium tanks shown but not this particular one?

From the setup it looks like a Clan Wars tank (Coke, Large repair kit, Large first aid kit) so the vents really won't do more helpfull things than his equipment is.

As far as I can tell it has all of the other premiums that are currently available with the addition of the Excelsior and the M4A2E4. It also does not show the Type 62 or the Type 59 in the tech tree, so I am thinking they are not going to be offering it anymore. I may buy it just for that reason.

Jingles did a runaround on the new map, it sounds like it may be interesting.

Also, he talked about the M4A2E4, apparently it is always available on the test server. The test server is a clone of the Russian server, and that tank is available there, but no where else right now. Is it possible that the French premium arty is the same, but opposite? I don't know.

I just thought of something... With 8.6 the notes say tier 1 tanks will come with a 100% crew, does this mean that it will get you a better light crew if you buy a tier 1 (free) and retrain the crew to a higher tier tank (100 - 20% = 80) than buy a new crew if you needed one, and for the same price to boot. I wonder if that will actually work...

Another thought... I need to get off of night shifts...

That won't work.....they're talking about the Tier 1 tanks that pop up when you start a new account. Buying back Tier 1 tanks will work the way it does now.

Vents are good for grinding up to top tier; once reached top tier.. realize that they are tough to play without losing $$, especially with premium rounds at $4k a shot, (sans premium account).

For Clan Wars battles, you really need to coordinate plan well ahead, not only which vehicle to use, what tactics to play out; but more importantly which sector of map to station, when to advance, how fast to move, equipment/consumables to have on vehicle. Hours in a training room battle is not uncommon.

These are what I used most for Clan Wars:
