Hey Ebola, I remember you mentioning that you were having WR issues recently.

I see in the news you're kicking [edited]and taking names in the Congo.

So if you watch, rolling down 0 line is a HUGE risk. I called that I was going to scout there and have any/all back-up behind me. I was super happy to see the t100 go center. I also had a bad spawn so it delayed me by a few seconds. The tier 8 light beat us there so that is how I got spotted, I got smacked hard in like 2 seconds so I dipped down and played super safe. In that dip its easy to abuse the bushes for safety, basically proxy spotting. Which I was waiting to die to. (proxy spotting happens when you are within 50m of a tank)

 

The skorps had like 3-4 bushes in front of them so it was impossible to see them unless someone drove up there. Thankfully my teammate did that and which caused them explode quickly.

 

So in short, the skorps were bushed up to spot through the bush and proceed to mess me up. All they had to do was drive up to the bush so that they can see through it. Back up so its solid and then fire. Rinse and repeat till someone dies or until it becomes unsafe to do so (proxy spot).

 

I've not played LTs in a while, so there are some map features that I am still unaware of.  That dip, on that map for instance, is one of them.  I am aware of what Proxy Spotting is, I just had no idea those Skorps could bush up 3 to 4 deep like that, in that area I mean (I know how to stack camo values with bushes and be within the 15m "invisisnipe" range).  Dem booshes iz strowng!  

 

Usually if I am driving an LT I spot in the coal deposits.  Watching that replay gave me a few ideas to try.  

 

I was talking about the 105 being the hunter/killer vs a real scout tank, and that game showing me the scout part.  Which is fine, I just thought it was kinda of funny.

Behold my latest shame...WG how can you be so cruel to exploit my weakness for Russian Mediums!

 

 

Goodness, how many more Sherman variants that aren't US will they be introducing into this game!?

 

How does it play?  I need to look up the stats.

 

Course, won't matter if I ever want it, until Amazon Pay gets fixed...I'll be saving money for a long time.  Not that I am playing much right now.

I gotta get my wins in SOMEWHERE!  :P


 

My Friday off I spent most of the day playing tanks, badly (surprise).  

 

54 games

Mostly grinding Tier IX that need upgrades to modules.

37.04% WR

996 WN8

 

Why do I play this game again?  

I am playing a lot of Minecraft now a days.

I mean if you can get within 200 meters of someone to assassinate them, and pray that the 13 105's gun does not derp a shot that bounces/misses then it can be an assassin. I usually find the t-100 chasing me down in the 13 105 lol.

So, it isn't an assassin type tank?   I'm confused now.

 

I imagine probably right after you've dumped your clip!  LOL.

You can boom and zoom for sure, but that usually is late game unless you are suiscouting. The play style is mixed because it does not have the best camo, nor does its derpy gun do it any justice.

So I had a fun match with a streamer last night. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/347055202 if you go to 2:20:00, after she blew up, I had a funny moment with a T92, T30, and a T110E4 later in the match :o

Lorza Sherman is a bad EZ8 clone. Slower, No armor anemic damage but excellent depression and rapid rate of fire. There nothing special about it but it a Russian Medium premium.with wet storage so probably will not get ammo racked a bunch.

 

Of course it comes with a zero perk trainable crew and it is Russian so I love it. . I am weak like that.

Get the SU-130. Its fun to blap people for 550-600 when you high roll ;)

Same here. I am either getting wrecked by tanks I cannot see or I am on the team that wallops the other side so fast I get 2-3 shots of damage at most. I think I had 5 average games this weekend about about 2xs that bad bad bad bad bad.

 

Really got to watch how your team sets up these days. Teir 10 seems to be the "camp way in the back being passive" vrs the world cup champion team of tankers. I am grinding my T-44 so I am out doing my bottom teir medium thing on one flank and with in 4 minutes we down 7-3 and the other flank with the top teir heavies is just gone. Or I flank them and crush 1-2 tanks only to look at the map and watch their whole push coming back  for me while the guys who should be backing me up are still hiding around the corner not moving at all! I don't understand that at all. I guess they are arty safe as long as they don't come around that corner. But if all you going to do is log into battle and wait to die, why play?

It is also fun when you get to kill one. It is like dancing with death and winning. Sweetest sound in the world is that massive gun shooting at you and missing.

Hmmm...ok.  Looks like I need to watch more game play on it then to understand the play style.  Obviously it has a fairly high skill ceiling to make it work well.

Ah, ok.  I don't like the EZ8 at all...so yeah...that'd be a really bad choice for me.

For those of you who have not done the Scavenger Hunt yet, here is the info all in one neat little package

 

Nimitz85 posted this on another thread

So here is a post for all four codes with 4tankers video on how the event works just so that it is all in one place.

https://youtu.be/-eqY_V0Sva4

 

Community Contributor code is:   CC4TANKERSDEC
Social media code is:   BRACEYOURSELVES        
Wot Weekly code is: IMTOMATOANDTHATSOK
The last code is: WINTERISHERE
 
To enter the codes click on the Premium shop button at the top of the forum page. When you go to the premium shop, there is a "redeem Wargaming Codes" button in the upper right corner. Click on that and enter the codes in the pop up box.
 
The 5x on 2nd victory of the day is for 24 hours. Since I got like 5 victories all day mine was wasted Friday night. You want to put the last code in some day you have lots of time to play and then play the hell out of your tanks. 1 win to clear the daily bonus, then a 2nd win to get the hidden times 5. It will only show up in your details screen since it is a "hidden" mission. I have some 5x bonus wins left on my IS-2M plus this time 5 hidden bonus add on and got like 12,000 plus free exp out of 1 game Friday night. Too bad that about the only win I could get

All i can think of is Synergy driving away as fast as he can in the 13 105, with a t-100lt on his rear, with the wacky inflatable man's arms on his tank and a loud scream.
