Low tiers (2-4) were overrun with Italians last night. I figure by now the tide will reach into tiers five and six. Will you be fighting the invasion with a favorite tank or have you joined the Mafia?

Already up to the tier 6, or will be at lunch. Got the jump with my Progetto crew and tried to beat the wave. At this point, I am just below the crest, almost ready to peak, so I am almost overtaken, but not quite yet, :playing:

Nvm I will just get bashed for saying it. I will be called thin skinned and a snowflake. I dare you to call me or my friends on the street a gumba. You do realise the connotation of what you are saying.

70*.... base pen

 

yes it is.. atleast this is not like a bobject 268V4 with troll armor and mobility and russian accuracy...

 

this tank is the perfect balance for new player who have no real experience and veterant who know how to flank and use the gun at the right time at the right spot... ( this is not a tier X and ruin the game )

I free xp'd to the tier V because the crew layout from V+ is the same and I didn't want to keep retraining the crew from I-V. 

 

That said, I am also working on the Centurion Action X on track for the experience bonuses, so I do expect to hunt low-tier Italians in my Cruiser tanks and Crusader (along with playing my tier VII+ British mediums).  :D

^^^^^ THIS ^^^^^ is incredible. I have to wonder how much free XP one has to expend to get a tier 10 in one day.

 

When the game went gold in 2011 it took a team of 5 or 6 players 72 hours to grind to a Maus. There was no free XP on day one of-course.

Did an administrator and senior community manager just use a racial slur? Not that I personally care but I seem to remember forum bans and strikes being handed out like candy over the innocent name contraction of japanese tanks. I guess italians don't count? :)

This is the reason why mid tiers are garbage.

 

As for the OP, I just got the T7 so I guess I'll use that to stomp on the T5s and T6s?

I used my Tier VIII crew from Tier 1 to Tier V, without any retraining.  I trained them all for the Tier VI and will be grinding that out in Strongholds.  I'll probably FreeExp past the Tier VII and grind out the Tier VIII in Strongholds as well.

Where I grew up it's just like saying buddy, but I certainly didn't mean to offend Italians. Would " Super Mario Kart" have been a better title?
