    I'll be grateful to any good Samaritan who buys a GeForce 650 or above (and it's not playing WoT) and he wants to donate his WoT code to me. :D

    I'm asking this because my country is not on this list. :(

    Manage to somehow squeeze enough money to acquire a Hummel, its currently playing like Grille Jr., no I haven't unlocked main gun yet. I like the wide firing angle, but it seems to be slightly less accurate than Grille (weaker crew?). Panther rotting in my garage currently, I am going to transfer its crew to Tiger II once I manage to farm enough.

    Tiers 5-7 will take tens of hours at least lol. Tiers 8-10 will take centuries. I personally think you get most of your fun in tiers 5-7, at tier 5 you need to be careful with the KV-1 and play accordingly, by Tier 8 its hard to get any credits without premium.

    The Churchill I (Tier 5 heavy tank, after the Matilda) is fun especially if you get the upgraded turret and the final gun (I free XP'd them, so that all I have to XP grind is the next tank), I have a 73% winrate with it after 55 battles. lol

    When some game developer give us good game product that we enjoy, i think they deserve our money, I'm usually very strict on spending money for online game, i never spend more than U$100 for any online games but i think for WoT i will past the number soon because i already reach $90 and the urge for blowing enemy tank still high.

    any of you in the clan that distribute gold from clan war? how about the rate of income? is it worth going professional with the extra time and effort?

    My clan was able to at least hold one province with 4080 gold for 6 days, and just this January we had a 2400 province plus the rest (240+360+120+72=792) for almost two weeks.

    So as a member of my clan I got a total of almost 1k gold. Distribution is 'proportional', with the number of CW battles being what determines how much you get, and not whether or not you're higher ranking.

    These are the only screenshot'd games I have that I did good in. I have other good games, but it seems I didn't take a screenshot of them. If you want to add me my name is in the screenshots. Just PM saying you're from TPU.

    SU-85B - 8 kills, Ace Tanker, Reaper, Mastery Badge Class 1, Master Gunner
    One of my most decorated games

    [​IMG]

    Hellcat - 5 kills, Kamikaze (on a Black Prince) I have the replay of the game, just need to record and upload

    [​IMG]

    Also have a game on Cliff where I shot a T-50 on our cap from the lighthouse with a Pz IV derp. Need to record and upload that too.

    Winrate is just under 50% for me, grinding shit tanks like Panther is taking a toll on my winrate. I have an ok winrate on better tanks though, 60% on VK3601, 53% on Tiger P.

    Best win ratio award goes to...SU-26 531 battles 68% WR. That was pre-nerf. Now it's sold.

    Others are like this picture.

    I have absolutely crap winrates for my SPGs, all of them under 45% iirc. I am pretty sure I suck with SPG :laugh:

    I do badly with my 2 farming tanks too (StuG III and PzIV), since I tend to "throw" games and do silly suicidal stuff with them.

    SPG's are VERY sensitive to teammates. More than any tank, if you have bad team you're doomed usually.
    So for SPG's don't rely so much on WR because dying early is (usually) not your fault. :)

    Also, maps. In closed maps like Himmelsdorf I can't really perform, and compounded by the flat trajectory of German SPGs you soon find yourself turned into a pinata for scouts.

    Of course, Himmelsdorf is my "favorite" map with any SPG. Especially for daily-double battle. :cry:

    Anyone try the new British TD's on the test server?

    EDIT: Played T2-3 British TD's and they seem alright. I'll have to try the later tiers to see if I really like them or not.

    So, I've been playing a few games in my SU-14 now. And I utterly SUCK in it. My greatest success is making a profit from it.

    Hope I get used to it soon, and that the 203mm is as nice as I hope it is.

    Anyone else think the french SPG's are the most fun to grind? For me they are, but I have only tried the German and the Russian ones.

    Only up to tier 2 for Russian, while I've reached tier 5 with the German, and tier 4 with the American SPGs. The only ones I haven't tried yet are the French.



    In other news, a clanmate of mine just one-shelled (i.e. no ammo rack explosion, no fire, just the damage from the shell) a Maus using the FV215b (183) in the 8.4 public test.

    203 will put a smile on your face almost in every game.
    My first met was on S-51. I was pleasantly shocked. :D
    Second met was on Object 212. 2300 games in it so I guess I like it.
    Third met was on M40/43. Best arty for it's tier.
    Have patience. Grow your crew and learn your arty and you'll be satisfied.
    I had fun with 105 and F3, Lorri 50 was somehow meh (it's just a bad copy of GWPanther) and now I'm playing Lorri 51 which is OK-ish.

    This is plain impossible. Maus 3000 HP, 183 HESH 1388-2188 damage.
    But I agree, 2100 damage in one shot is already too much.
    That's why I've sold almost every Tier 9/10 tank and now I'm playing in Tier 8 max.
    If I want to play in Tier 10 I'm taking my 3 Tier 8 arty's or my Object 268. :)
