Well, I've been able to get back into my PzKpfw III Ausf. A and my Luchs. :D I haven't had much time to play but it didn't take me long to advance. I have to say, I just love my light tanks. I had my both my Luchs and PzK III out last night and I was getting between 3 to 5 kills per round. They're are just the perfect balance between mobility and firepower on lower ter matches.

Unfortunately I squandered my xp on a Leopard. It's a good tank but they all ways put you in higher ter matches with mediums and heavy’s. :( Unless you really like scouting and nothing more that scouting it kind of sucks.

I can't wait to get back into my Stug!

Didn't make the 1000 round cut off and got bumped back to the beginning.

Oh well, I've made to the M2 Light, so I'll be tearing around with that for a while.

Dammit.

Ok, I'm getting close to getting a heavy tank (finally). I'm on the German line so it will be a Tiger but I was looking at the specs for the T29 and holy crap, 279 turret armor!! 8O And it's gun looks like it outclasses the 88 on the Tiger. Which is the better way to go?

I would have to start into the American tree but it looks like it requires less xp to get upto the T29 than it does to get up to the first heavy in the German tree.

Ya that's my post :lol: . I was reading up a bit on the forum and apparently there's a lot of people who feel the soviet tanks are over spec'ed, as one guy indicated on that thread. Oh well, I'll get my Tiger and give it whirl. I find most of the Soviet tankers suck at tactics so I'll just have to out smart em :twisted: *(Mind you, who needs tactics when you've got a KV as your top tier tank in a 3-5 tier match).

I'm also finding the 88 is really more of a long range gun though, which kind of sucks because you're a bit limited on certain maps. Not to mention I can't count how many times I've pumped 8 or 9 shots into someone to get them down below 10% just to have someone else steal my kill right at the end :( .

I hate the kill stealers too. Pecking away with my 37mm and a Loltractor comes tootling by, pops off, gets one hit and kills the M2 or whatever.

Oh boy, you know I'll have to admit that I get a little attached to my tanks and I have a hard time letting them go especially after I've thrown some equipment on them and trained the crews :lol: . So needless to say I've got a pretty full garage. Speaking of which, I really think they need to change how much it costs to add garage slots.

My line up includes:
Light Tanks: Pz. III Ausf A, Lutz, and a Leo
Med Tanks: Pz. III, Pz. IV, VK3001(H), and a pay tank which I got for a preorder on gold which I never use.
SPG: Sturm I, Sturm II, Wespe, and Grille
ATG: Hertz, Stug III, and Jdpz IV

Really to be honest I don't know much about platooning. I thought it was just so you could have voice chat.

Add 1 Tiger to the garage count. :D

I probably should have gone with an IS but I wanted to continue the tree I all ready started. As far as the Tiger being as bad as everyone says it is, meh, it’s not bad but you do defiantly get owned by any tank that is of equal tier or higher. The only good point is that you rarely get match with only teir 7 and up.

On that note though, even tier 5 and 6’s have a tendency to be an equal match. The Tiger’s armour is way under spec’ed as compared to what it should be. Tier 5’s have no problem penetrating my front armour, my only saving grace are my higher hit points. Not to mention what ever armour I have is pretty much defeated by the fact that I’m the slowest thing on the battlefield.

It’s a sniper, but a poor one at that. Slow tank, slow reload times, no ability camo itself, and poor armour as compared to other tier 7’s and up. It does have good penetration and accuracy but those are off set by the fact that you have to hang way back and it has poor damage. Sure I can hit a T29 from the top of hill but because I’m so far away I can’t selectively aim for the hull and I do such poor damage that it literally takes 10+ shots to kill anything above a tier 5.

I'm use to getting an average of 2 kills a match regardless of what I'm driving, be it arty, light, med, or tds. In my Tiger I find I'm averaging around 1 mainly because I just can not keep up. By the time I get to where the fight is or into a position the battle is half over because I'm so damn slow.

Oh well, it’s mine so I’ll have to live with it for now. I’ll use it to advance to the KT which I hear is better but I’m in no hurry to get to tier 8. I think I’m going to cap off my tech research in mediums first.

Looks like a nice map. I kind of wish they would show the mini map though so you could a better idea of the whole lay out.

Large and huge maps are needed for German tanks. They were never intended to be point blank brawlers like the Russians were. That's why I went Russian after it went live. German tanks are gimped by more then just stats.
