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. 

 

It happened twice this weekend where I got nuked by a strv and a t-100 proceeded to chase me down. I was pleading with a platoon-mate to come to my rescue... which proceeded in the following events.

Me: Save me!

Platoon-mate: OMW

Me: I am dead xD (100 HP)

I then round the corner to be face to face with another T-100.

Me: FUG. *Dead*

Kinda sounds like me in the E-50 a couple days ago, i was fighting with a T62-A when a JgPzE 100 came to back him up so i boogied out of there, just to turn the corner and be staring down a death stars barrel. I let out and audible squeal before getting nuked into nothingness. My friend who was in discord with me at the time asked me what the hell was happening, so i sent him a small clip of it and he ended up laughing so damn hard he almost fell out of his chair. He then said "I thought a roach had crawled on you or something since that's the only time i've ever heard you squeal like that."

Dang that was a nice ending, poor fella bounced and i have to admit i've been in his place multiple times. Almost going to get that final shot, bam it bounces. Like somehow i've had a M41 Bulldog take a broad side APCR shot from the E-75 and somehow not even track him and i'm like "What..........", at that point i just take a deep sigh and slam a shell into someone else. But i think my squeal would have deafened you compared to yours lol. Think of mine as the sound you'd made if michael myers ripped the shower curtain open on you while you're standing there stark naked, taking a shower and singing like no ones watching. Yeahhhh.....

Why do I play this game again?  

I am playing a lot of Minecraft now a days.

 

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?

 

That's me too.  Not that I do that well anyway...

 

Anyhow I spent today digging out from under 14-15 inches of snow!  Love being in the bulls eye of big snow storms!

Jumped on yesterday when I got home from work and running a few errands to see if I could finish getting the final module to finish upgrading my Object 430 II.  I even popped a 200% Crew Booster, 200% XP Booster, and a 200% Free XP Booster - all 1 hour.  I thought given my usual WR streak I should be able to grind out the last 15k XP to get the top engine.  

 

Big mistake.  SU-130PMs were EVERYWHERE.  No biggie, that wasn't what did me in.  RNG did.  OMG, I couldn't land shots.  The top gun has a .35 dispersion.  I land more shots in my T-34-3!  It was infuriating, I don't think I even finished off my boosters, I quite and end up jumping in to Minecraft.  

 

5 Games

40% WR

493.2 DPG

193 WR <---- SERIOUSLY?  

 

I'm going to have to find an active decent clan so I can get some platoon mates.  This is just stupid.

Well the good news is i've just about fixed my sleeping schedule so i should be on around the time you are now and i'd be willing to platoon for tier 8's and 9's.

I don't do lower tiers than that since it's usually a cluster fluff of chaos.

That's perfect since I'm trying to get all of my Tier IXs fully upgraded.  When I get the Object 430 II done, I will focus on the T-10.  

 

I'll probably throw down some Tier VIII as well so I can get a decent amount of XP to convert to Free XP to get the T-44 upgraded to a point where I can take it out as well as for a few other lines below VIII that I want to work on...especially the Polish Line.  I'm still on the Tier V.  

 

Then my next grind will be for the Tiger I - which I just got the Tier V one and it is completely stock (IIRC) - which will give my brain a valid excuse to acquire the Lowe!

Well atm i'll be running the T-10, IS-6, T-44-100 and the SU-130PM until i can buy some gold to transfer enough exp to finish the T-43 up to the T-44 and skip completely past the SU100M1 to the SU-101.

You should look into joining one of the evil gaming clans. I used to be in a clan called FGTVE which was a fun home. They have people on every night/day to platoon with for laughs and getting better. Plus they do clan wars/advances if you want to join that fun stuff.

 

In the 430 II if you are not doing at least 1250 damage you wont event cross on the green spectrum for WN8. To do well you would need to hit 1800+ for blue and 2275 for purple WN8.

 

Also for 5 battles a 40% WR is not too terrible, since it is a small set of battles. You lost 3, 1 more than you have won. The hardest thing to do is to look past the metrics and focusing on what you do during your matches, as you are the most constant thing in your matches. I for the 430 II load out I would recommend: Vents, rammer, coated optics and run food. If you are afraid to catch on fire you can run the fire directive for 2 bonds.

I also played badly last night evaluating a new person for the clan. Only did like 2.3k WN8 for the night, when I need to be pulling 3.8k +

Oh and I lost 1.9 mil last night in two advances. Woo!

Thanks, I'll check into it.  It'll just depend on their requirements.  What I don't want to do is get stuck in a clan that I can't learn from.  What are the other names of the evil clans you speak of?

 

Considering that I just recently acquired the top gun in it, I don't think I was doing to bad for aDpG.  I am currently sitting at just under 1100 dpg right now.  I believe I ran roughly 80 out of the 91 games with the crappier gun. I will get that bumped up soon.  I only have the engine left, IIRC I have about 15k XP to grind to finish it off (or around 7k if I use my Free XP I've been saving up).  The top engine has like 110 more HP, which I'm hoping will improve my manueverability and allow me to be more flexible for early first shots and to get into good 2nd & 3rd line snipy type positions very similar to the Object 416.

 

I think the thing that is killing me the most on it is the crew.  I had to start over with a crew.  I do have the T-54 prot, but I'm not sure if the crew transitions easily...I need to check into that.  Right now they are at 91% on their first perk/skill.  Getting losses like I have been (41.76% = 53/91 losses) is really hurting them from advancing rapidly.  

 

True, small sample set is a really bad way to judge one's performance.  I was just indicating by sharing that information that RNG was really trolling me.  In fact, the straw that broke the camel's back was the last game.  I had only taken 1 shot of damage and was about to flank some enemy that was being surrounded.  Should've been some EASY and free damage.  Oh, but no...I sidescrape and a SU-130PM gets a lucky snapshot and ammo racks me.  I was in shock.  I couldn't believe my luck.  Exited out, played Minecraft the rest of the night. 

 

I forget about the bonds.  That's a good idea.  I think I'm running V-Stab, Rammer, Coated Optics.  I'll change out the V-Stab for Vents as well as run food to see how that works.

Oh...I think I forgot to mention, I re-acquired the T-54 to see if I could improve on it and learn it.

It is best to transplant your crew to the 430 II from the t54 prototype. Then put them back into the prod (without retraining them). Since it is a premium russian med you can ferry the crew back and forth when you please to train them up or grind out your 430II.

 

My crew for the 277 I bounce back and forth from my 252 when I use it in strongholds, same to say for my 268V4 crew which are in the SU-130.

 

But coupling vents and food your aiming should come down by .02 and your other soft stats will be come better.

 

Edit: as for the 430II you have ZERO armor. So I would not advise sidescraping anything for more damage unless you are ready to eat a shot. Also your fuel tanks on russian meds are (when looking at it from the front) on the left side, near your drive wheel to 1/4 across the hull. So do take care hiding that spot when you poke out for damage.

LOL, I am aware of how Premium Tanks work.  I have a lot of them and I use them to train crews pretty frequently.  Before the K-91 line was introduced one could get to the T-54/Obj 140/T-62A from the Object 416.  So my original crew from that line is in the Object 140.  The T-54 prot just isn't all that great of a tank, and I actually forgot it was Soviet...lol.  It just slipped my mind that I could put the Object 430 II crew in there.  It is good to know that they'll direct transfer slot for slot.  Sometimes they don't and it is a pain in the butt.

 

Ok.  Sounds good regarding food/vents.

 

Hmmm...ok.  I'll focus on utilizing this tank more like the Object 416 as a sniping medium then.  I was under the mistaken impression I could pull off some sidescraping.  I'll stop doing that then...lol.  Thanks for that tip.
