GA I have seen this but it was back when I used mods or even just XVM.  Maybe a clean install which I have done from time to time although the download sucks lol.

 

Cheers

Thanks. That is a good idea.  I will set it up to run while I am at work since I hate waiting for it

Apparently being good gets you stuff.

Living right?

 

I got the VK 75.01 as a gift yesterday.

Third time was the charm. :great:

Took 3 battles to get the feel for it, but it does feel pretty good.

How you play it? Brawler, sniper 2nd line support?

In this game I took it to them, but slowly to be sure. (was all T-VIII match)

I went into the city and just made sure the OPFOR were in front of me.

I know there was an unseen TD on the other side that was likely bummed out by all the bounces he got trying to pen me, it was a Skorpion G if I recall.

I did draw a lot of fire, which was fine. I believe in armour sharing and this can share. It allowed my team mates in softer tanks to take aim, focus and do their job, while the OPFOR was trying to send me away.

I ended up capping because there was only one fast med running around from OPFOR and there is no way I could catch him.

As it was we got a double happy, capped out just as the last OPFOR med was sent to Valhalla. :great:

 

All in all a very good gift! 

I sent a tank in return, but alas not an VIII, there is however another KV-2R out there. :D

A 1st class in a tier X game on Fisherman's Bay in my T-54ltwt.  It was a weird game, almost 7k in assistance, but also 4 kills with only 442 direct damage (4 pens, 4 kills).  I spent almost the whole game lighting the 1 line and dodging the three arties that seemed to have it in for me.  Once the city was won, I switched flanks figuring that losing the 1 line wouldn't matter much any more.  That's where I got three of my kills, just helping out with the clean up.  A long game, more than 11 minutes.  I traveled over 9k, mostly in small circles.  The crew probably got motion sickness.

 

I know Russian lights are supposed to be the best in the game, but they don't really click with me.  I prefer more of a scouting role and they are combat lights.  Once I unlock the LT-100, I think I will retrain the crew for it, and then play the LT-432 a lot more, as the crew layout is the same.

I picked up a VK 75.01 K as well,

 

Here is my 3rd battle... although of the 6 I've played in pubs all but one I have done pretty well.

 

Posted Image

 

In the right situations this tank is an absolute beast, I've blocked 3.2k damage in a battle. The gun will absolutely wreck just about anything at it's tier. Took it for a spin in Frontlines tonight, 4.8k damage, 3 kills and 3.8k blocked on 1 life. Made to my 3rd sector before I outlived all my teammates and got circled.

 

Not sure why its getting such a bad rap but it may have to do with how people are playing it right now. The vast majority of other VKs I faced last night were wasting their amazing guns by spamming HE rounds. :unsure:

 

Also managed to unlock the JPanther II tonight.

Finally got my Senior Technical Engineer a little while ago - that was a LONG time coming.  Now I can focus on just keeping up with new entries.

Congrats Bulb send me some replays I would love to feature the tank.

MAN,

 

GG I enjoy my T54 Lt and I play it and the 432 much more than my LT-100 just can't grasp that tank.  I will definitely be putting this on the channel.

 

Cheers

I don't show a 50% WR yet with 27056 matches played.

It might take into account front line battles or grand battles. Maybe even strongholds. Who really knows, WG stuff is always funky.

Yes.  Front Line, Grand Battles and a few others, while not counted in your stats for W/L rates, DO add to your total battle count.

 

That's where the discrepancy comes into play.  I got my 15,000 victory marker not that long ago myself and the total count of my games was such that it wasn't 100% accurate relative to my W/L rate.  It was Close, however that's due to my near total lack of playing anything other than Pubs other than the occasional foray into something like Home Front for funsies or the few Grand Battles I played.  Other than that, I don't think I played anything else that counted for my total battle count.

 

This makes me a pretty good baseline for comparison for others that play these other events.

Did this today, likely a HUGE throw on my part. WoTreplays seems to have broken the replay somehow. Here's a link:

https://drive.google...Fx3mIbU_xyeqtn4

 

I lost a ton of HP at the beginning as a result of me being lazy and royally messed up dealing with the P.43, but nonetheless a great result, highest damage I've had in the tank (iirc). The tank is interesting. I'm not feeling the armour honestly, except for the one time I facehugged a P.43 bis to death. The alpha and pen are kind of low and I wish it would get the D10T to ease the grind from the IS, but it's a fine tank, kind of like a T-43 with gimped reload time.

 

BanziDuck, if you're tired of dealing with my... interesting... replays feel free to skip this one.

I am HATING it right now.

 

I have been working my butt off in the matches, coming in at anywhere from 5th to 1st in damage, hitting 1000+ damage in my Bishop, Grille, JgPzIV and a few others, but holy cow!  Just my turn on the random wheel, I guess.  And NO, it doesn't make me feel any better that I'm not alone in this.
