Nice. Did you also have Accelerated Crew Training turned on? How many % did your crew go up in their skills? Sixth Sense really should be implemented for all commanders who have reached 100%. It gives such as huge bonus, I think it should be available more widely, especially for new players.

 

 

Oh yeah. If you use boosters, combo-ed with missions, premium training bonus' ect - you can REALLY fly in crew training.

You got that right. I recently redeemed the T34, and played it for about an hour and a half. I had the day of premium from the 4th of July weekend mission. In that hour and a half, my crew shot from having just recently reached 100% on their major qualification to 70+% on their first skill.

If you like being creative, absolutely.  If you're looking for a campaign-based game, no.  Multiplayer does work, but has netcode issues, it's gotten better, but intense combat and large ships cause problems.  Survival single player worlds are very rugged and stable, even with the largest builds.  Still plenty of bugs, danger to he who uses pistons or rotors while moving his ship, lest he anger CLANG! the deity of destruction.

 

If you catch it on sale, it's about $10-15 and I highly recommend it, otherwise, I think it's 25-30?  Dunno, I bought in for $10 bucks on early access in late 2013

 

 

NOTE: survival worlds are just a big sandbox like minecraft, complete with cyberhounds that want to eat you, space spiders that want to eat you, and space pirates that want to riddle you with boolets and steal your things.  There's no survival mission, most people challenge themselves to get to space in survival and make a successful return from orbit without exploding or angering CLANG!

 

Okay. Thanks for the tips and suggestions. I will consider trying it if I ever see it on sale, although I am not sure I will buy it for full price.

Had a 4119 damage game in my Cromwell B a few days ago.

 

Also had one recent night where in a ~2 hour span, I got Ace Tanker on 5 different tanks for the first time:  KV-4, BT-7 artillery, IS-2, M6, and SARL 42.

 

I track my bigger accomplishments in this thread.

While I can't say I'm happy you were playing arty, especially that arty, that is still a great night. How close are you to the T-55A? I am still grinding through the last of the T28 HTC missions (I need to move up the tiers in TDs and SPGs to finish them), but am hoping to get the T-55A someday.

I will just pray I am never on the enemy teams when you are playing your M53/M55.

 

 

Nice. Could you post screenshots or a replay? Did you get a Mastery Badge? How about a Top Gun, or similar award?

I commend you for your fortitude in grinding through the tier 5, 6, 7, and 8 tanks in that line. I quit at the Churchill I and have never looked back.

 

Thanks.... I researched the T92 as well last week so maybe i'll move up to that one. But probably not though as the M53/55 is pretty nasty.

I have 73 of the 75 missions complete for the T55A... I have SPG15 and TD15 complete with honours, MT15 complete and working on HT15 & LT15. I'll keep cracking on MT15 to get it with honours and then I'll just need either LT15 or HT15 with honours. I have exceeded the requirements for both missions in the past before I unlocked them so now it's just a matter of a repeat performance.

 

I am itching to start on the 260 mission set... but it is going to take a lot of luck to finish those.

We forced the game to end with the other team in NEGATIVE NUMBERS.

It was actually -2 for most of the game.

ship controls look like KSP EVA controls, how similar are the orbit mechanics to KSP?

Cool. Cromwells are truly powerful tanks in the right hands, as well as being fun to play. One of my favorite tanks in the game.

 

That is an amazing amount of Ace Tankers in one night. Great job!

 

I need to start a list of goals like that. Some of my current ones are recent winrate to 55%, overall Wn8 to 1600, recent Wn8 to 2450+, and move up to tier 10.

Nice. Good luck with the missions. Are you going for completing them all with honors, or just 4 with honors or all 5 without honors?

I have currently completed LT1-15 (15 needs to be redone with honors), MT1-15, HT1-15, TD1-10, SPG1-8 + SPG 12 I think. I am trying to complete all 5 without honors, since that will get me more female crew members. As soon as I finish this set of missions, my future Bat Chat 25t crew will be complete, motivating me to move on from the AMX 13 90.

If I ever complete the T-55A missions, I will be stopping there. I will have Object 260 missions selected, but will not be actively trying to complete them. I think the final set of missions is a little above my skills.

Post in that thread then!  It would be cool to get it going again.  I only had about 4 things on my goals list when I started it, but I keep adding new things as I think of them, or as I achieve something.  I like stats/things to aim for :)

I will do that. Goals are always good to have. 

 

EDIT: I have added my list of goals to your thread.

Not sure it's an accomplishment, but last night I killed a T34-85 with a ricochet off of a KV2.  I was a was a ways back in my T28 (imagine that, the thing is sooo slow), had a aimed shot that hit the wrong part of the KV2, ricocheted about 75 meters to the left and took out the T34-85.  Pretty funny, but I did feel bad for the t34, that's a tough way to go!

Cool. I have yet to see a ricochet that killed someone.

Thats an impressive amount of damage! I will try to watch the video as soon as possible.

What do you feel about the T57 Heavy and how it stacks up against the AMX 50B? How about the coming buffs to its armor? Do you think they will make it op or just bring it back to performing well?

Enemy team had (2) team kills.  They got one "real" kill before the match ended... for a -1 tally.  Check the timer:  game was over in 4:03 mins.  Our entire team could not stop laughing.

 

On another note:  bottom dog (Tier 7 med) in a Tier 9 match, down 4-11, FTW

 

 

THIS is why you NEVER totally rely on your teammates to reset cap. [enemy team]

Also why you should NEVER quit on your team/ a battle. 

 

KV-13 is love. KV-13 is life.

I haven't watched the video yet. I will try to do that soon, but can't really do it while at work. Either way, it looks like quite an amazing game.

What are your opinions of the KV-13? I have not tried it, and am wondering if it is worth going back and playing. I have already ground up both lines that it leads into, so I don't need it for that. I kind of enjoyed the T-43, but not enough to keep it.

You have learned the ways of the derp (or should that be DERP) well.

That must have been quite a battle. Nice job.

I remember this one battle on Lakeville that I had in my KV-2. I spawned south and started heading to city. When I was about halfway there, a T67 was spotted on the north end of the lake just inside draw distance. Since he was such a small target (he was partially hidden behind a rock to make things harder), I decided I wouldn't try to stop and aim, and would just take a snapshot. I shot as soon as my turret stopped turning and it hit for full health. Of course, I couldn't hit anything for the rest of the battle, but it was totally worth it for that one glorious shot.
