I'd like to mention a new MMO project by Wargaming.net (Do you remember Order of War?) World of Tanks. The game is very promissing. It can't be called a true historical game but the tank models corresponds to their historical prototypes (machines of 30-50s). Details can be found here: http://www.worldoftanks.com/

That looks pretty cool, hope it turns out well though...

The developers declare the game to be a combination of such genres as the third person action, FPS, RTS, RPG, and the simulator.

Churchill

TPA and FPS don't really mix that well...

Great game, now that I have it. Played it three times and I already have a leichttractor, a Panzer 35t, a BT-7, and an AMX 38. At the moment I'm saving up for the Panzer 38t.

I recommend it to anyone who likes shooters with a degree of historical accuracy. Also, if you do decide to get it talk to me about the free code for 1000 gold, and add me, I'm porkpotpie.

Will be looking out for you lol,

Tigger3 on EU server, waiting for Brit tanks to come out so not bought any new ones for a while (saving XP and gelt), generally play a few of my selection and although I have unlocked the tier 8's I prefer the mid levels.

SU26 love this little beast, much better than my other arty.
IS, KV3, hard hitting mid tier brawlers
ARL44, VK3001 French and German sniper tanks, fragile armour
VK3601 average in most battles but can do some real damage
T26 I drag this out for a bit of fun at the bottom end, fast and good gun.

Not long had my SU85 and find it pretty good (especially after the SU76/85B horrors)

Got a load of others but they are really just gathering dust until I have a fire sale and buy British lol.

I play on the NA server as well mainly US vehicles though as I don't play them on the EU server (really hating the M3 Lee), love the Soviet MS1 though.

Generally informing people on both forums that wiki is not infallable and popular beliefs do not always stand up to close inspection.

Churchill
10-04-2012, 03:32 PM
I don't have much playing time but give me about 25k money and I'll have my third tier 3.

What's the most number of kills you've gotten mate? I've gotten 6 with the Ltractor.

leccy
10-05-2012, 06:06 AM
I have had 9 with my KV1 (with 122mm howitzer), rest of my team were dead and I was facing 6 on my own, they got cocky and thought they would have an easy win.
Also got 9 with my SU26 which really is a great little arty piece (accused of being a hacker as I was hunting tanks using direct fire instead of arty mode).

Most fun was probably in my SU18 when I was against 5 others (last one left alive again), I killed an AMX38 (already had 2 kills) and then capped their flag, embarrassing for them as the SU18 is sooooo fast lol.

I tend to have odd moments when I can play for an hour or so then not play for a few days, sometimes its just fired up for a single match.

Have fun with the AMX40 'Duck' the B1 is much better but can be disheartening as well at times.

Churchill
10-05-2012, 03:54 PM
I like the Pz38t, BT-7, and AMX38, but I don't...

They're good tanks, but the BT and AMX are sent to tier 5 lobbies and the Pz is sent to tier 4s... I wish I was only sent to tier 3/4 with the BT and AMX because its impossible to get any kills...

leccy
10-05-2012, 04:50 PM
The matchmaking is alot better after the 7.5 patch, only 2 tiers spread up or down for most vehicles now so much better as whatever I face I can at least do damage to.

Patch 8.0 allowed you to choose whether to do assault and encounter modes (I think tier level may have something to do with it though).

You playing on the NA server? think I saw your nic, I play as _Freddy_ there but not too often.

Churchill
10-05-2012, 06:37 PM
Yeah, I play on the NA server because I have a lot of friends who play on that one.

I have the latest patch, 8.0 I think, but it still puts me against upper tier 5 tanks... Kind of annoying, but I just stay back and let the others do the killing. Doesn't always work, but when it does the XP is worth it.

Brit tanks out on Russian server, eu server usually comes out about a week later.

Churchill
10-26-2012, 08:51 PM
Gah, lucky. How is the tier 1?

I suppose it'll come out last on the American server...

leccy
10-27-2012, 07:07 AM
I been playing the Brits on the test server for the last few weeks anyway, Russia usually gets first patch then NA followed shortly by EU, I don't know where China or SEA fit in.

The Vickers Med Mk 1 is slow, thin armoured and huge but the guns are good. The 15mm Besa is good in maps where you get up close and personal (five round burst and capable of 5 burst,s before reloading although the damage per round is not that great). The bigger guns can do serious damage with at most 2 shotting any other oponent at tier 1.

My favourite is the Cromwell though, right beast, dart around the map, small size, good penetration on gun. I been using it to hunt down T50-2's and flank the big tanks (killed T26E4 and IS6 which really upset those players).

Gave up with the Valentine as it was getting matched up as a tier IV scout so I ended up in games with tier VII and VIII all the time. A real problem as it has no speed and the 6pdr or 75mm really struggles to even penetrate the tanks while its own armour is like paper to anything it faces. If you get matched as the top tier or at least tier V or below it is good fun and you can do some real damage.

Brit guns seem to be low damage but high penetration in game with some tanks being heavily nerfed between the tests (Brit mediums Cent 7/1 and FV4202 were Soviet killers but the devs have reduced their effectiveness, they have not given the tier X FV215b its designed gun (183mm) or the one they said they would (133mm) so it has the same turret and gun (120mm) as the tier IX Conqueror while having thinner armour).

HESH rounds are in game but very situational as they will not do much damage on spaced armour or tracks (21 dmg on a Maus track plates), solid armour though is good (659 dmg on a Maus turret side, four shots and he was gone), the rounds have been made less effective between test 1 and 2 though so I do not know how they will fare now they are going live.

Not to go to far off topic here but...
World of Warships (WW2?) and World of Warplanes (WW2) are in development, to some extent, by the same company.

10-27-2012, 11:24 AM
I am a member of the vocal community who has for a long time been bemoaning the lack of British tanks in WoT (Soviet, German, US, Chinese, French then we get Brits) and have joined in with the calls for Britain to be included with those two games from the start (or at least as the first added on faction).

Churchill
10-27-2012, 02:03 PM
I'm not too hot on the World of Warplanes and World of Warships...

Good to know about the English tanks, I'll try to keep that information in mind, thanks mate.

Brits live on Eu server but my NA account has not been updated for them yet.

Churchill
11-01-2012, 04:59 PM
They're here.

leccy
11-02-2012, 07:07 AM
Just downloaded on my NA account last night, its been fun on the Eu server with them, hundreds of Brit tanks everywhere.

Churchill
11-02-2012, 03:03 PM
Yeah, tons of them on the NA servers as well...

leccy
11-02-2012, 03:51 PM
Despite many people on the Eu forum saying they are rubbish I am having real fun in them, my worst vehicle is even on kills to deaths while all the rest have had more kills than I have been destroyed in.

Churchill
11-10-2012, 05:35 PM
Yo Leccy, what'd you think of the Chinese trailer?

leccy
11-11-2012, 03:02 PM
Think its a bit poor that they are adding a tech tree which is all tanks from other nations, I know they are doing it for money reasons but at times I think they are going a bit far.

Quality of vid is pretty good though. Nice to have more tanks but I wish they would flesh out the brits a bit.

Churchill
11-11-2012, 03:26 PM
I agree with you.

I also wish they would flesh out the French as well. Some of the links are pretty obvious, such as the V39 TD stemming from the G1B...

leccy
11-11-2012, 04:45 PM
At least the French have got tank destroyers and artillery (and proper scouts).

The TOG2 premium is doing well on the Russian server at the moment somehow - slow and armed with a 17pdr at tier VI.

Churchill
11-11-2012, 07:04 PM
That's true...

TOG2?

danielkroner
11-21-2012, 12:35 PM
I have tried this game a number of times and for whatever reason I have just not been able to get into it.

Churchill
11-21-2012, 02:23 PM
Hm...

I was hooked pretty much instantly.

leccy
11-22-2012, 10:36 AM
The TOG2 (TOG stands for The Old Gang a group of WW1 designers out to work without any real specification, they came up with the TOG1 and TOG2 tanks).

TOG1

TOG2
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/64/TOG2_Tank_Bovington.jpg/800px-TOG2_Tank_Bovington.jpg

I got into the game pretty quickly although it takes longer to actually learn how to play each vehicle, many rush around or sit hiding instead of learning properly (which can take some time).

Churchill
11-22-2012, 12:08 PM
That'll be interesting to see in combat...

Churchill
01-05-2013, 05:20 PM
Yeah, they're pretty funny to see plodding about the map.

leccy
01-06-2013, 06:12 AM
Had a few goes with one on test server, surprisingly they are better than I thought they would be, got better than even kill ratio with max 4 kills in one game.

Churchill
01-06-2013, 05:28 PM
Wow, that's pretty good.

Churchill
01-16-2013, 07:11 PM
So, Chinese are out. First impressions?

gumalangi
01-17-2013, 01:30 PM
I have now
pziiia- which i love so much, ever got me 5 kills
t40 - i hate it so, slow accelaration, thin armor and weak firepower
m3stuart(russians) - great scout
and a marder 2 :) - nice sniping with 75 mm long barrel

Churchill
01-17-2013, 01:44 PM
Nice. What are your goals?

gumalangi
01-17-2013, 01:58 PM

leccy
01-17-2013, 08:05 PM
Only played a few games as chinese on eu server,

tier one and two are already in game as FT17 and T26, tier 3 different but tier 4 a Stuart , Most chinese are just other nations ones really.

Churchill
01-17-2013, 10:14 PM
That's what I thought... I don't think I'm going to have a Chinese line in my garage...

gumalangi
03-13-2013, 02:47 PM
heya,.

i own now, Pz IIIa, PzIII, Pz III/IV, Hetzer, StugIII, M3stuart(russian), T46, T28 and KV 1

about 3000credit left for VK3601 :)

Churchill
03-13-2013, 06:59 PM
Nice Gumalangi.

This'll be kind of long, but I own:

America: Jackson/Slugger, Hellcat
United Kingdom: Churchill Black Prince, Comet, Cromwell, Valentine AT
German: Pz I C, Tiger P, Panther, VK3002DB, StuGIII, JagdPzIV, Hummel
France: ELC AMX, AMX13-75, ARL 44, S-35 CA
Soviet Union: T-50, KV-2, IS, and SU-100.

BTW, I found the VK3001 to be better than the VK3601, but that's just me.

gumalangi
03-13-2013, 10:53 PM
very nice collections,.:)
VK 3001 is better yes,. but i want to have a Tiger after that
hey you notice the new british AT? grazy as hell,. but with KV 1's 122,. managed to win head to head with it, with some backups

leccy
03-14-2013, 06:45 PM
Got loads in my garage but the ones I still play regularly

SU85 (unlocked SU100), IS (Unlocked IS3), KV3 (Unlocked KV4), SU26 (Like the SU5 but hated the SU8), BT7 (just started going up this line)

Churchill I (unlocked Churchill VII but going for Churchill GC), Cromwell (nearly got Comet), Matilda (love this beast), Cruiser MK III and MK IV, Vickers Medium Mk I and MK II, Valentine AT

VK3601 (unlocked Tiger and VK3002DB), VK3001 (Unlocked Panther)

AMX13-75, ARL44 (unlocked AMX M4 45)

Stuart M5A1

generally staying playing at the lower levels right now and building up cash (3.5 million at the moment and 100,000 free XP)

Churchill
03-14-2013, 08:01 PM
IS (Unlocked IS3),

:evil: I'm jealous... :evil:

I can say the SU-100 is pretty good, not as much as I had hoped though. The A-20 is really fast, so its pretty good.
The Churchill GC is pretty slow(about 25), the armor is ok, and the gun isn't too bad. The bad thing is that it has terrible gun traverse, only about 5ish degrees...
VK3002DB is good once the engine is on. The guns after the turret aren't that great imo.
ARL is tons of fun with the long 90mm. Probably my favorite sniper.
I used to have the M5A1, but got rid of it for the slot...

leccy
03-14-2013, 08:23 PM
Sticking with the SU85 right now, have some fun games in it, not gone for the IS3, KV4 or SU100 right now but got space and the money, more not sure which to get next. Probably go for the IS3 though.

The ARL44 love when upgraded, good sniper. Stopped the French line right now after the horrible SAU TD, unlocked the next one then sold the SAU but never went further.

My fav tank is still the Tilly in tier IV or V games, too slow and weak damage in tier VI though.

Churchill
03-15-2013, 12:32 AM
The S-35C is great, excellent traverse, great stock gun(17pounder from the Churchill BP), gun is high on the tank so its easy to hull down. Only down side is that the top is open so that its pretty easy to kill with arty.

I'll never understand the allure of this game. Too arcadey to be a proper simulation, too slow to be a proper shooter.

gumalangi
03-17-2013, 11:17 AM
yeah,.. thats good to have some golds with this game, i had second Gold hunt tank but missed the other two:),. so total now 1000 Gold,. :)
for myself,. hardly spent real life monies on any games :),.

say,. now i own myself a VK 3601 (H) and KV1S,. and trying an SPG (wespe),.. i should had listened to you on VK 3001(H),. now i have to own two heavy tank classes,. (KV and Tiger) instead of one medium (phanter)

Tex: take as it is a game, not a real life simulation or anything like it,. but as an entertainment,. i find this very amusing and well spent time leisure :)

Cheers

Its more deliberately tactical than the average FPS and was never intended to be a simulation.

It is an easy to get into but hard to actually master game.

03-17-2013, 03:33 PM
Decided to buy the IS 3 and AMX 45 50 not too fun stock.

Made up for it with my tilly though, 20 kills in four games, one game held my own against 7 of theirs, killed three to add to the three I already had before being completely mobbed on Abbey by the last 4. We won though so happy enough - 953 xp (no doubled, no premium), top score, top gun, sniper, steelwall

Churchill
03-17-2013, 04:46 PM
Nice one mate, wish I had games like those.

gumalangi
04-15-2013, 02:45 PM

German line, i have leopard, VK3001H, Tiger, Grille, stug III and Jagdphanter

Churchill

Not upgraded much at the moment as I have not played as much but got my Comet, SU100, Type T34, AT2, IS3

Mostly played AT2 and Churchill I this weekend to unlock the Churchill GC and AT8 and take advantage of the extra credits.

Back to playing my Tilly now with its new paintwork (spent money on Camo as its a keeper).

Churchill
04-16-2013, 04:40 PM
Nice stuff Leccy. Use the 100 or the 122 on the SU-100?

I spent too much money on the game Gumalangi... Oh well, the guys making it should be paid for it.

leccy
04-17-2013, 07:35 AM
I try not to use free XP so still using the 85mm D5S 85BM from the SU 85, nearly got enough for the 100mm D10S though and will probably stick with that due to the higher rate of fire. Did the suspension first as it was terrible at manueverability.

Crew only 78% and struggled being thrown in mostly tier 8 matches and one shotted.

Armour on them is pretty weak as I can pen it with my tilly and its 2pdr with normal rounds even frontally.

Dreading being tempted to get the Churchill GC though, not a good vehicle and can get the AT7 through the AT8 anyway.

Hello to all, I see that you are adepts of WOT as me, I find that it is a good game, but a pity that they didn't limit themselves to the tanks of World War II, because many are only of the projects of paper or prototypes only constructed to one or two copies.

British : Cruiser MKIII, Cruiser MKIV, UC 2pdr, Valentine AT, Alecto, AT2, AT8, AT7, AT15, Tortoise.

American : T2 Light, M4 Sherman, M4 A3 E8 Sherman, T26 E4 Super Pershing, T18, T40, M10 Wolverine, M18 Hellcat, M36 Jackson, T25 AT, T28.

Russian : BT7, T34, T34-85, KV1, KV1S, IS, IS3, S-51.

Ah... The 100's fast fire rate has saved me a couple times before. I don't know if I'm going to keep this one, it doesn't seem as good as the SU-85...

I played the Churchill GC in the test server. Moderate maneuverability, great gun, extremely limited gun traverse though...

I prefer the SU85 as although it can be one shot by many tanks it faces, even frontally, it happens less often than with the SU100.

Had so many bad games where people were in tier VI and VII after less than 500 games (one only just over 300 with a tier VIII) just blocking me, ramming me and pushing me out recently.

Hello to all, my dear Churchill that you would say then if you used an AT8 in tier 6 or an AT7 in tier 7 that has respectively 4.71 and 5 second of reloading, with in more 203 mm of frontal armor, certainly they are slow would say yourselves to me 20km/h maximum, but placed well in battle that is one truths wound for your enemies.

Hello leccy, certainly SU them are in general good, but me favorite nevertheless my Jâgdpanther that equipped of are 10.5 cm remains absolutely dangerous even on the tier 9 and this in spite of a strong tendency has deviate to long distance, it is necessary to say that I play on the two available cannons, the 88 and the 10.5, but I remain the most often on the 10.5 bus even though its penetration is weaker than the 88 its damages are nevertheless more consequent.

The Jagdpanther can hull down better than my SU85 and SU100 so are harder to hit, I get hit on top even when I can not see over the crest and will bounce off the top of a Jagdpanther most of the time.

Thinking of trying the German TD line as not tried it at all.

Hello leccy, certainly SU them are in general good, but me favorite nevertheless my Jâgdpanther that equipped of are 10.5 cm remains absolutely dangerous even on the tier 9 and this in spite of a strong tendency has deviate to long distance, it is necessary to say that I play on the two available cannons, the 88 and the 10.5, but I remain the most often on the 10.5 bus even though its penetration is weaker than the 88 its damages are nevertheless more consequent.
Regards Fred

Hi there,.

I find 10.5 is really frustrating, the 0.34 accuracy is a hoax, i missed one for every 3 shots, thats unacceptable for a TD, despite of carefull wait plus one second static of sniping circle to fully stop. I am back using old but faithful 88 L/71. and its brings me to Jagdphanter II and ferdinand. for ferdi still need to obtain some credits (abt 1mill). I skip using 10.5 as i find the MM for german's TD is more humane than german's Heavy tanks, my Tiger 1 and 2, for every 10 matches, i will face 7 battles against 2 tiers higher than me.
Funny, the opposite is happened with my russian lines, my IS will only 3 times facing 2 tier higher for every 10 matches.

I have now Jagdphanter II with me, awesome beast, however for this one i have to use the 10.5 cm L/56, as alpha damage amount requested to fight tier VIII and above is unforgiving.
same with my IS3, i still using 122 D 25T from my IS, instead of using fast firing 100mm, still working on the BL9.

i have now with me
T1 HT from US line, building it skills for my crew and cashing some credits :)
AMX 40, just making up to 100% the crew for AMX ELC
Leopard (not the leopard 1), Pz III/IV(Credit maker), Tiger II B (biggest credit consumers), Stug III (ultimate Credits ATM), Jagdphanter, Jagdphanter II, Grille
KV1(another credit makers), KV1s (company tank), IS, IS3
and one crusader from british line.

0pened, just wait to buy, M6, Phanter, T150, KV2, KV13, AMX ELC, Ferdinand, Hummel, Crommwel

^the Panther is a good sniper, and it plays just like the Jagdpanther mostly.
The T-150 is pretty slow, but the 107 is good. Armor isn't bad.
KV-2 is great with the second turret and the 152, however the reload is terrible and mobility is decent.
KV-13 has great armor and mobility, but it has the gun of the T-34-85.
AMX ELC is a great mobile sniper and pseudo-scout once fully upgraded. The radio is terrible and the armor is very weak. That being said, you should be able to absorb at least one shot with it.
The Hummel is great. Its my favorite artillery gun, and it has great accuracy and gun traverse.
The Cromwell is mobile and the gun is ok. The armor is a bit lacking. The Comet is the other side of that coin: slightly less mobile(10kph less), but has much better armor.

I just started the arty lines from each nation apart from Germany. So far, the T-57 is the best in my opinion.

I love the Cromwell, fast and accurate but easy to kill, the Comet is much better armoured but wish it had the speed of the Cromwell as the gun is still a little lacking (it has its actual gun where most vehicles have a gun from the next tier as top so it should have the option of the 17pdr and not top out at the 77mm).

On the US server I used the T57 as a TD in a few games (max kills six, four of them as TD and me as the last vehicle on my team)

Churchill

^Nice one. I got mastery badge 2nd class my first battle in it and then ace tanker in my 3rd game with it.

Also, I think the gun on the Comet is fine, it can pen Tigers, so it isn't anything to sneeze at.

Hello to all, to come back to what you said my dear Churchill on the Panther, I would even say that it is one of the best sniper with the set of the AT, me possessed this and I must say that the AT8 remains according to me and in spite of are not later than yesterday lack of mobility, the chariot that is worth me the more of strokes to the goals and kill, for information, I destroyed an IS3, certainly I needed several shootings, but the big beast ended up returning the soul. For what is the Hummel that is a trés good artillery, I suggested you nevertheless to test the S51 that is a tier 6, by curiosity looked at the possible potential damages with the cannon of 209mm, it remained for the meantime the one that inflicts the more parmis of it the artilleries, until has 2800 points of possible damages by shooting, extensively of what to destroy third 9 or 10 had 1 stroke, the only inconveniences are his/her/its times of reloading of 39s and only 12 shells in rack.
All something else, I use for my part a mod that is well trés makes for WOT, it is made by a French I recommend it to you because you will quite have another perception of your game, me you post the tie, if you want more information don't hesitate has ask, and if you are a little lost in his/her/its installation, me you will help if you wish it. With this mod has a mod his/her/its, but I must say that as he/it is of quoted it European and makes by a French see them are in French, but has the inside of the pack of sounds you will have a better sound of the motors and shootings also, my dear Churchill I tell it to you honestly, to find you quoted a Hummel or a GWPanther that shooting is an auditory expèrience that you won't forget for quite a while.

Bonjour Churchill, es tu français par hasard, car si ce n'est pas le cas ton français est over the top, alors pour te répondre que cela soit sur le serveur de l'Amérique du Nord ou de l'Europe cela ne change rien au jeu car leur base est en tout point semblable, je n'en veut pour preuve que le mod de Sleck est compilé a partir de mods créés par des russes avec leur langage natif et cela ne change rien puisque la base du jeu est au format anglais, donc tu peux télécharger le mod sans problème, la seul chose concerne le Sleck Sound Pack qui contient des dialogues tirés d'un jeu et qui sont en français, mais vu comme tu l'écrit cela ne devrait point te poser de problèmes. Par contre si tu ne comprend pas le mod d'installation fait moi signe car il y a quelques petits piéges a éviter.

Bonjour à tous, Churchill le mod de Sleck change beaucoup la perception du jeu, il supprime par exemple le brouillard et donc de ce fait rend le paysage plus clair et les objets sont plus nets, il ajoute également un nouveau viseur pour l'artillerie et pour le sniper avec le temps de rechargement du canon ainsi que pour l'artillerie le temps mis par l'obus pour atteindre sa cible, tu as également une barre verte en dessous qui t'indique l'épaisseur du blindage de la cible suivant l'angle de ton canon a sur celle ci , la minimap est beaucoup plus claire et montre par des cercles la distance de ta portée de vue ainsi que la distance maximal de tir suivant ton canon de plus tu as ta ligne de tir ainsi que de chaque cotés de celle ci les angles de visées maximal de celle ci, avec en plus la possibilité de voir l'endroit ou l'ennemie a été spotter pour la dernière fois, avec le viseur est également compris un petit mod pour t'indiquer quel est le char que tu vises ainsi que les différentes épaisseurs de son blindage, un nouveau panneau de dégâts est également ajouté. L'interface du garage est également revue. Pour ce qui est des lancements de parties le premier écran affiche les statistiques de chaque joueur présent dans la partie. Si jamais tu veux l'installer fait moi signe, si tu as un problème avec, je me ferais un plaisir de t'expliquer pas à pas la manière de l'installer.
Si tu veux des screens de ce que j'explique plus haut fait le moi savoir.

Amitiés Fred

PS: Si tu le veux je peux faire un tuto complet de son installation que tu pourras traduire, si tu le souhaite, pour les autres membres de notre forum.

With me at least. I am sticking to the American armored since I am most familiar with that Country's armored. though I am starting to use russian tanks. I wonder though why I am not using any German tanks...

Churchill
03-12-2014, 03:27 AM
Of the 'big three', the Americans have mobility, Russians have armor, and Germans have guns. At least from what I've seen.

tankgeezer
03-12-2014, 10:45 AM
I have noticed that the game includes the American T-28/95 which is a bit silly because neither of the two prototypes were ever deployed. Its also a bit fun, because one can see what it may have been like to go against an enemy with one. I just wonder how they configured the code for it with no actual examples of its being used beyond a few clips of film from testing. http://youtu.be/EqfIfe1VXnE

Nickdfresh
03-12-2014, 11:32 AM
Yeah, in the video he presents the T-28 as a "tank destroyer", it was actually an assault gun designed specifically to pierce the vastly overrated Siegfried Line. It wasn't ready by the time we did and Shermans were fine since it wasn't really all that much of a Line anyways...

Nickdfresh
03-12-2014, 11:45 AM
I guess according that ephemerally correct source, Wikipedia, the T-28/95 was in fact designed with the afterthought of countering German heavy panzers. :D I stand corrected, though it's main purpose was to defeat fortifications...

tankgeezer
03-12-2014, 01:33 PM
I was told by the people at the Museum who maintain it that it was designed primarily for breaking fortified positions and was for that reason, designated a Gun, Motor Carriage. I'm guessing that the powers that be figured that once the lines were reduced, it would find more use as a Tank Destroyer, or other type of support weapon. I can see the orders now,, "Go forward into the field, and let them shoot at you. when they run out of ammo, then we will go take them prisoner, and you can then move to the next position and repeat. ;)

Churchill
03-13-2014, 12:16 AM
A lot of the tanks there aren't used properly (T57 as an artillery when its a TD, and the T18 as a TD when its an artillery), didn't exist (E-series tanks), were prototypes (High tier French tanks), or are completely made up (T-28 Prototype).

They use those for diversity and fleshing out nations' trees.

Looks are not everything - it is different - Warthunder planes trumps World of Planes but Warthunder Groundforces has not matched World of tanks yet apart from looks - it has potential but looking like they are trying to put too much in at the start.

A new game Armoured Warfare has also been announced and seems to follow the WoT pattern but with modern armoured vehicles.

Churchill
04-01-2014, 11:04 PM
The Tiger P isn't exactly fast... But it does have good armor if you angle it correctly.

And camping really is a problem. If you want another quick tank, try the ELC. And the FV304 artillery piece.

04-02-2014, 10:28 AM
Camping and rushing out are both problems - Campers sit and do little to affect the game - fools rushing off with no support or into a firezone equally die quick and do little.

there is a time and place to wait and a time and place to push -

A little example, the Luchs moved quick to a position and stayed where it could see so we knew what was coming, (we had three afk tanks at start), they waited then pushed and got shot to pieces (that stuart was a plucky lucky blighter), our side pushed to the cap and got shot from the side and front - I pushed to the AMX M4 then moved to the Cap point.

scout tanks really never work out for some reason they always throw you in the battle with tier 8 and 9. Yet all I have this tier 7 scout tank. I enjoy using the median tanks. Not to slow and not to fast. As a decent gun.

Samoax
04-02-2014, 03:41 PM
there are more effective ways of rushing then going out in the open field all alone all douh even that could be a pretty helpful thing for your team if all the enemies are camping and they shoot at you thus revealing their positions and then your team-mates can butcher their asses. and you can rush thru a forest in the corner of the map all the way to the other side of the map and take out your enemies from the rear, or you can convince someone else in your team to do the same just on the other side assuming there are trees on both sides and then you can truely Blitzkrieg with like 2-3 tanks on each side corner of the map raping the enemy from the sides and behind.

Samoax

04-02-2014, 05:36 PM
Learn passive scouting, in position and hide, spotting the enemy for your team, a teeny bit of hit and run,

none of this charge off and spot all when your team are not ready and you just die in 30 seconds

Watch the Luchs in my vid, he just kept the enemy in view for us,

Samoax
04-03-2014, 03:31 AM
how do i watch it? i clicked the ''download replay'' button but it didn't work. **** it, scouting sucks, and you don't earn much points spotting anyway. it's useless for your own pleasure unless your scoutng on behalf of some friends or in a tournament or some shieeet. besides, Tanks where never even really used in WW2 for scouting!

You find out where it was downloaded to and then just click on it - it will open up your world of tanks game and play the replay.

Not many people can play the lights tanks well, they are probably the hardest to master, personally I do not like playing them past tier IV - too much grief when you don't charge off to die.

Passive scouting may not be the most fun but it is effective - you survive then long enough to actually flank and start to hit the damaged opposition when they busy with your main force. Sneaking around a flank as well rather than charging looking fr the enemy artillery is generally more successful as well, running into a spawn point while they still have 15 guns nearby is just a world of hurt.

Its also a bit of a myth that recce units were only there to scout, they were they to scout and were used effectively by the British although they preferred lighter and quieter armoured cars or turretless Stuarts. They also were for flank guard, to disrupt supply lines by getting behind and isolating units, capture crossing points before demolition etc, rear guard actions.

The wordpress link you posted seems to have missed where motorcycles were replaced in German units by light tanks starting in 1940 - Doctrine was one thing, how local commanders used the assets (or mis-used them) is another thing.

The piece he wrote was based on this article which primarily uses a few examples - interesting to read though - it is more about whether recce units were used as recce units than whether tanks were (he cites many cases where the main tank of the day was used as both scout and fighting vehicle ie Panzer III or IV)

you dont do face to face with an IS :),. or any HT at your tier or up for that matter,. as Type 34 is not a very fast medium, unlike PZIII/IV or M7,. it can play circle of death,.

No, I was saying that while I'm not great at the game, a bunch of people worse than me came out during the holidays and made any attempts at winning impossible.

If only it was 10 losses to 11 wins, its more like 1 win to every 10 losses. These days I don't bother playing as its impossible to do well when half your team dies before you make it to the front lines.

I'll probably start playing again at the end of the month or in February.

sometimes i feel like,.- this might actually the feeling of those veteran panzers crew,. when their company refilled with fresh recruit,. with only so few hours in training,. all YOLOing,. a light tank exposing themselves and in static to get a good aim of incoming heavy tanks forgetting their paper armor, or heavy tank just rush to enemy group thinking they are super tank that nothing could destroy them - lol

Final straw was having a Waffletoaster and KV5 sneak up on me across open ground when I was stationary watching - they got to within 50m of me before suddenly showing up - I had seen them at 350m range and they vanished to reappear right in front of me in my Caernarvon with binoculars

I stopped playing just after christmas, too many bad layers and lots of bots - I was seeing ghost shells going through tanks I was shooting at, and tanks hitting me when I was fully behind cover.

I've sort have become addicted, but yeah the game has maddening issues with "lag" I think. I believe that causes most of the issues with ghost tanks using Romulan cloaking technology. :mrgreen: Actually I play the "Blitz" app version on my iPad since it works a lot better; but am thinking there are better uses for my time with all of the cloaking tanks, players that don't play after signing up ****ing the team, system lag, invincible tanks like the KV-1 that weren't really that great to begin with, etc...

I got the FV4202 at tier X, Conqueror and Centurion 7/1 at tier IX

....

The Conqueror is a bit ridiculous at first with the 20-pdr. gun. They designed the ****ing thing for the 120mm!

Its terrible with the 20pdr, the new HD model is supposed to be pretty good but still a pinata for arty.

I only play a few games now and then, mostly in my Tilly, VK3601, Churchill 1, Firefly, Cruiser III -

I was playing Armoured Warfare a lot but not so much at the moment as my lappie struggles a bit now - I still play PvE on AW as with less people on a team it seems to run a bit better for me.

Right now though World of Warships has got my interest, pretty fun for a blast and the tier III US Cruiser the 'St Louis' (protected cruiser from around 1900) is a beast, able to fire a huge amount of guns in a broadside and quick reloads - just short range on the guns and she is not very quick or maneuverable. The rapid fire using HE though can bring tears to the biggest battleship as you set them on fire repeatedly.

Haven't played WoT in a while, though last I did was the new low tier French.

AW is fun, I really like the M113 with the autocannon.

WoWs I need to play a bit more. I got up to tier 5 in the CBT but haven't made it past tier 3 since it came out.

Been playing a lot of War Thunder's Ground Forces recently, though I'm not that high. Working on a 4.7 lineup for the Germans and a 3.3 for the Soviets. Don't know if I'm going to continue the Americans or not.

I like the Souma S35 and SARL 42 and still play the odd game with them when I do log in.

The SARL may look odd but with the 47mm SA 37 'Ameliore' it can be a beast. Better penetration and fast firing makes up for its lower damage - like an uglier Tilly (which is pretty much how I play it).
