I haven't played the Tetrarch in many years. I'm almost embarrassed I have so many battles in a T2. I also have not played the t-45 and T2 Light enough to critique them.

 

I wouldn't feel embarrassed.  Your record is the sum of your experiences and I like to think if you played the T2 so much, its because you were having a great time?

 

During 2011-2013 I was pretty much a F2P player and the T2 medium was my go-to and I played it a lot.  I figured I could destroy 1 or more tanks in every battle, win more than I lost, and eventually scrape up enough credits to buy equipment and I couldn't want for a better time than that.  Eventually I bought a Church 3, retired the T2 Medium and started progressing in the game. 

 

But I look back at the T2 Medium play fondly because I had a good time which is the whole point of playing a game IMO.

The Tetrarch used to rock and was considered a "Troll" tank in T2. I really liked it back in the day so if it is even half of what it was it is worth it.

 

Don't feel bad at all about playing a tier 2 tank. Right now there are seven tier 2 or tier 3 tanks for sale in the shop. I'll tell you are secret to online sales. Most online sales research shows that items in the 5-15 dollar range sell the best online. There are many, many different reasons for this. For many people their first or second premium tank is going to be a low tier one. This is why the company gives away tier 2 and tier 3 tanks. So low tier premium tanks are actually very important to the player base and to getting people to see the value in buying a premium tank, especially a good premium tank. The biggest let down of community contributors is that they only want to cover high tier tanks and play. However the biggest and most important thing they NEED to cover for the sake of the new player base are the low tier premiums and low tier games. Everyone complains that the company does very little to teach and help new players. And yet, the community contributors themselves are half of the problem if they never cover low tier skills, tanks, and game play.

 

Covering a tier 2 premium tank is not a put down. It is a big help to all players. Do you think you are the only one who has 500 games in a low tier tank? I have 200 games in the B2. I am certainly going to try to have 500 games in my T-28 F-30. I also have 200 games in my leaf blower. I also used my extra gold to buy the T15, S35, T25, T2 light tank, M22 Locust. I want to like these tanks and play them more. I am often just too busy in taking advantage of 5X or 2x daily wins on grind tanks. Frontline is going to be a great thing for me. But when frontline isn't in the game, you can bet your bottom I am going to play more MKA and T2 light tank to figure it out more. As well, I am finally going up the Russian light tank lines to get the tier ten. They gave me a really great light tank trainer the t-50-2. But I was also looking to use more T-127 and Tetrarch as well. People need low tier tank reviews. Do you know how many MKA reviews I could find from the major you tubers? ZERO. That's how many of them covered the free tier 2 premium tank the MKA. And guess what, it is a really good tank. So please, if you are that bored please make some decent reviews of the tier 2 premium tanks. They are actually a bigger part of the marketing and sales of this game than people want to understand. It would help players a lot, especially considering that most people do not cover these tanks and low tier play and yet complain that so many players need to go back to tier 2 to learn the game. See the imbalance? See the gap? Fill that knowledge gap bro, be the low tier premium tank review guy. Make that your niche.

I agree. And you are right. I have had a ball with my T2's.

 

It is a fact that some will look at those numbers and come to the conclusion that you are a "Stat Padder".

 

If any "Stat Padding" was going on in my case it was being a member of a top Clan Wars clan before it imploded leaving only 5 ACES still active in the game.

I'm so out of touch with current T2 play that I couldn't do a review with any competence. ( I might strap a T2 on tonight and see what I am missing.)

 

Having said that it you want advice feel free to message me.

So, this thread reminds me of a really cool hat pin I got at Electric Forest Festival last year. I wish wore that hat to the office today so I could attach a gif, but essentially the pin has a single word on a cool rainbow-colored background, but the word is on a swivel so it rotates.

It's also written in a sort of gothic/medieval style. One way it says "Forest" and when you spin it around it says "Family."

 

So the writing on the T26E5's barrel could definitely be open for interpretation :)

You must have missed where I said I was bored. Oh well. Lesson learnt. Canucks shouldn't try to troll Yanks.

 

I see your point.  There are lighter lines at the top of the W that make it look like an M in a quick glance.  Kudos to Raynorshyne for the link to the actual constitution.  It also has those lines.  I initially thought they were meant to be scratch marks on the paint.

Have you ever taken the time to look at how things were spelled back then?

Seems they were overly fond of e. They wrote that letter in places if had no reason to be.

As in Ye Olde whatever the hell they're writing about.

 

 

The whole "ye olde" thing is also a screw-up.  It is actually "The olde..."  The script used then for "Th" looks like a modern "Y".

Well the tier 2 light tanks are actually more important today than they ever have been. There are now tier ten light tanks in the game. People often complain that playing a tier 8 premium light tank simply isn't worth it because you now have to face tier 10 light tanks if you do play a tier 8 premium light tank. That wasn't the case for a long time. So premium tier 8 light tanks are a lot more work to play now then they were in the past. Tier 8 premium light tanks also generally have pen issues against tier ten tanks.

 

Well guess what, that Tetrarch trains exactly the same crew layout as the tier 10 light tank of the Russian line. It is a perfect crew trainer. And it doesn't have pen issues against the tanks that it faces. It does well at tier 2. It also has a 70% XP bonus that can be applied to accelerated crew training. I would argue that you can actually train your tier ten light tank crew better and more consistently in the Tetrarch than you can the LT-432. You also may actually have more fun doing that. As well, you may be able to train them faster since you can play two tier 2 games often in the same time as one tier 8-10 game. So yes, tier two premium light tanks are more important now then they ever have been. Why do you think they have so many low tier featured premium tanks for sale right now? Everyone complained that EU got the LT-423 on sale. But how many NA players understand that NA actually got the better Russian light tank trainer for sale, the Tetrarch than EU did? Dez Gamez even didn't recommend the LT-432 at first because it has so many issues facing tier 10 light tanks and it's ongoing pen issues. So for sure please do play more tier 2 tanks and if I have questions I will certainly ask you about them thank you.

Cursive is a dead form of writing. I move to rewrite the constitution using wingdings

 

That's the same type of "cursive" thats on the constitution.  but they messed it up.

The we looks like it took a half of an M and then half of a W.  Its not even a letter.  The first curve is on top and the second curve is on the bottom...

A lot of the strange spellings of English words are due to the advent of the printing press. English is an amalgamation of many languages some many of which had strange sounds as thus strange spellings. Before the lexographers could change them..the printing press was invented and those weird spellings 'went viral' as they say, and there was no changing them after that.

My friend I am sorry to tell you this, but it is literally a copy of what the text on the constitution looks like. However, it is shortened in height to fit on the barrel of the gun better. Seriously, they did a damn good job copying it too. There is nothing wrong here. If you want to get onto someone for how it looks then you need to get in a time machine and go back 200 years and have a word with the guy who actually hand wrote this on the constitution. 

 

Better make that 232 years as it was in the Signed Constitution in 1783.  If you only go back 200 years, you're going to miss the event!
