Is it a good thing to have MoE and 57% in a vehicle most people hate?

 

Also, love it when enemy lights ram into me and die, netting me a Kamikaze.

 

I actually rather like that tank...the gun is certainly punchy enough.

Agreed.  The mechanical lag time of what's going on inside an HDD is a big bottleneck, and when I switched to a Samsung Evo SSD the reduction in wait time for anything that involved opening/loading files was stunning.

 

The team at General Computer Corporation (the makers of the Macintosh based HyperDrive 10) ...felt your pain :D

 

... the idea and actual usage of Solid State Storage has always been on the techie's wish list since the earliest days of obscenely expensive ram (folks remember the good ol' days of mail order ram (for things like ram drives -that you only had to sell one sister into slavery for?)  Then there was the Mac ... so looking at ram/ssd prices for todays machines ... think on 1 MEG of ram (with a 720k double sided 3.5 in floppy drive thrown in) for a measly ... $800.00     ... and a 10 MEG mechanical Hard Drive for,  wait for it, $3000.000 dollars ... but to be fair to the Hyperdrive, it was true to its name and very high performance for its day - particularly when compared to the external solution provided by Apple's HD 20 ... hahaha can you imagine just the idea of connecting a hard drive ... to a floppy port Bhahahahahahahahahahhahaha?   Granted an enhanced port ... but even back in the day, this solution was considered insanely slow ... 

 

"Before the Macintosh SE made its debut, there was no internal hard drive available for the compact Mac. Back in 1985 General Computer Corporation introduced the HyperDrive, an internal 10MB hard drive add-on. It wedged a 3.5-inch disk, power supply, logic board and fan inside the existing case, and was 7 times faster than Apple’s floppy-port based HD20. It also cost about the same price as the Macintosh itself, starting at nearly $2200 for the 512k – or $2800 for the 128k version, which upgraded you to 512K along the way."

 

... so think good Double Sided Floppy transfer capacity? ... something like 1 Megabit per second or about 10 times slower than over 90% of the broadband internet offerings for downloading speeds ... now apply this to a hard drive.  Computer technology has come a lonnnnnnnng way baby.

Haven't played it yet but how bad can it be? Gun soft stats aren't much worse than the T20s.

 

Then again I'm the guy that's unimpressed by the Comet since I'd prefer to have a gun with more alpha.

Hell I'm always broke but that's because I'm this games equivalent of an altaholic lol.

I mean the Comet is pretty bad too, but even its better than the T-34/100

I really like my Comet, but globally it seems to have a pretty bad WR. 

 

As for the T-34/100, I guess it was okay.  I don't remember it with the disgust I feel towards the tier 8.

Comet and I never really meshed well. I could see the potential but I always thought it was far too much work.

 

edit: I'd rather drive the T-20 or T-29 if I had to choose a tier 7.

Was about to say, I thought people generally liked the Comet. If it had more alpha or better gun handling I'd be happier with it.

 

At least neither of them is the A-44 though.

I'm always broke.  I don't earn credits just to horde them.  But then, I don't play with any consistency, either.

The gun depression is quite a bit worse, for one thing.

T20 plays much like a TD that can actually spot for itself in my opinion.

Nah the Comet is pretty garbage... if I had to have a tier 7 medium Id just buy back the T20. Though with the way balance is going in this game... I could go back to my idea about shoehorning a 20pdr into the Comet... that might be lulzy now... hmmm... I should model that to see what it looks like... that might be funny...

T7 mediums in general have the issue of not being enough of a step up from T6. They should just use the T20 as the measure of standard and make sure they are roughly as good.

It's a better TD than the T25/2 hah.

Heresy. Comet is the best tier 7 medium.

I remember liking my Comet well enough.  I didn't keep it, but it was a nice-ish tank.

The Finnish tried exactly that back in 1961, but it wasn't successful. I've still yet to come across any pictures of this trial, just that it was some sort of specially made thing attached to the turret as there's no way the gun would fit inside the turret normally. But as far as I'm aware, there are no pictures. Much like there are no pictures of the Finnish T-34/85 with the 7.5cm StuK 40.
