I climbed up to the Panther/Hummel/VK3601 in the German tree, up to the IS-4/S-51 in the USSR tree, and up to the E8 in the USA tree. Everything I have is fully researched(except for the next vehicle)
I'll prolly start it back up again with the next big patch. French tanks or whatever. Just kinda meh right now.
Kinda don't like my clan either....or maybe it is clan wars in general. Sometimes I could only play at night and it seemed like everytime I got on I had to participate in clan wars with only having my S-51(great damage, terrible accuracy, extremely slow reload, = not too effective in CW) or my IS-4(maxed out, a little slow, but not enough hp) and I didn't have much time to actually play and grind exp/credits. Real annoying.
Yeah, haven't played it in a long time, hoping to get my T10 IS4 and T9 "fast heavy" with some upcoming patch though, will play it again once it's out.
Pretty much same. I was going to get the Is-7 with the Is-4 before then but just no motivation really. Other than the HP bonus I have killed so many Is-7s in my Is-4 with ease unless I am in the open and am chased down with their superior speed. Seems like a situational tank at best with that highly unreliable armor.
I heard the French tanks are going to be incredible with their auto-loaders though. Basically you get to fire off 6-10 shells in rapid fire succession with no reload time and then you get like a decently long reload until you can fire off 6-10 shells again. The guns aren't slouches either. Wargaming has said the top end ones will be comparable with the German 12.8 or the US 120mm damage/pen-wise. That can make for devastating attacks. Kind of excited for them. Not all of their tanks have that feature, though, but it is confirmed that the high tier lights, mediums, and heavies will all have them. As for TDs.....no idea.
It's on the public test atm, so you can get on and mess around with them climbing the trees quickly(10x exp/credits on the test server)
Planning to try it out when I get home.
How is the auto loader? I heard you can fire something like 6 shots with some tanks before you have to reload? Do they have the penetration/damage to even make that worth while or does it always make you feel like a VK3601 trying to pen an IS-4 with the short 88?
