    Been playing with the FV12b (813) and it's really fun to play. Doubt I'll actually get it when it comes out, though.

    Oddly I will avoid IS3 at all cost when I am in my Tiger P, but when I am fooling about in my Tiger I will actively seek all the IS tanks lol. A royal pain to handle in tight maps, but relatively easy to pin down in wide open maps.

    IS3 = Good tank (over 400 battles) but paper rear armour and VERY prone to ammo rack destruction. BL9 good gun but sadly just a penetration upgrade, you don't get any additional damage from it.

    Meh. Still like my SU-14. Could use a bit more accuracy, but besides that, even when it burns 10k creds, it's at least not horrible.

    And the randomness of people sometimes. One game in it, a ELC AMX almost got me killed, until he decided that ramming me, would be a good way to try and kill me. :p

    And another game, where people called for me to destroy an enemy, after I had been destroyed.

    Leveled up my Matilda... being thrown in matches with tier 6 tanks now. Sheesh. Most matches were wins however, esp when only tier 4 and above tanks were involved.

    Be careful. Be very careful because you can have no social life after discovering WoT. :roll:

    Lorri 51 at his best. Fadin, Confederate and almost Top Gun (12 enemy hits and 5 dead).
    Sometimes I like it. :D

    I'll have researched and purchased the churchill within 2 weeks easy. God I hope so, they are such slow tanks.

    First Churchill, second Churchill and Black Prince were horror tanks for me. Carnaervon is nice though.

    Got my Tiger II, plays like a slower version of Tiger but against enemies that can usually 3shot me. Still on stock everything except engine. Saw my first Tier X vehicles, god they were scary. On the upside though repair costs for Tiger II is not significantly more expensive than Tiger, so I guess shells (with the upgraded gun) will be the money burner.

    Free exp'ed my way to Covenanter in the British line, that is one good tank. Excellent speed and acceleration, capable of causing as much pain behind the lines as a T50. I wonder if Crusader will be just as good.

    Crusader and Cromwell were two of the most funniest tanks I've played in WoT.
    I've made some platoons with Cromwell and oh boy what a joy it was. :D

    A bit harder to earn money now because my premium expired yesterday. What happens is I grind for XP in high-tier tanks, then barely recoup my losses through my premium tanks. AND I usually lose to boot. Instead of just the 50% 'loss' (since premium offers a 50% bonus), I seem to have gotten 80% less income now.

    Without Premium account it's a little bit hard to maintain your high-tier tanks so you need to play more with your Tier 5/6 moneymakers or/and your Premium tank(s).

    But TBH I have no joy to play in Tier 9/10 anymore. Too much gold-ammo floating around and I don't like neither 5xTier 8 arty's/team...

    I find a lot of joy playing my Tigers (3 of them now :3). In the long run they make enough money to cover their repair costs and some more, so I am not complaining. Lots of happiness derping T49 using my PzIV (and getting derped by M4), and causing havoc with my StuG III even against Tier 6 opponents. I think my ideal spot of this game belongs to tiers 5-7, enough differentiation between tanks but still able to avoid large losses.

    Going to sell Panther and replace it with the British heavy line, I don't think I can stomach another round of grinding towards E50M. Or I can sell my beloved StuGIII and get a Ferdi.
