M103 has the same vulnerabilities as the T-34 ( except T-34 is less frustrating at tier 8 and being a premium tank now helps a lot) while it was tier 9. I don't know the actual effective values but based on early encounters so far, same tanks that were able to consistently penetrate the T-34 frontal armor will do the same with M103. Basically same crap as before except you have the (free) premium tank now to make you feel better.Anyone know what the effective (frontal) armor is for M103 and T110? Both tanks look like their upper glacis is highly sloped with a rather tiny driver's hatch. I'd guess that the T110 is extremely hard to pen anywhere on the upper glacis, and but I don't know how hard the M103 is.
As for the lower glacis, I'd guess that tier7s should punch straight through the M103 since that armor isn't very sloped and is at most 127mm.
But I have no idea about the T110. I'm sure the lower glacis isn't 254mm like the upper, but how thick is it? Is it like the Maus (which is pretty hard to pen w/o a TD gun) or more like an E-100 (ez street)?

7.2 didn't change my "worth playing, not worth paying" opinion but it does allow to grind credits needed for higher tiers.
I get ammo-racked all the damn time in my Panther. FUUUUUUUUUUU. One moment of weakness where I show mr. ammo rack and WHAM, tank explodes from full health. I can kind of live with the shit-awful armor but fucking hell the ammo rackability is ridiculous.So I have been ammo racked twice in 2500 games. 2 games tonight in a row ammo racked in my IS3 hmm..
Brothers-in-arms - 5% to crew members, but actual in game results is a smaller ~2% benefit as its only calculating 5% of the original crew 100% skills. Does absolutely nothing until every crew member is trained 100% in it or if a crew member is knocked out.
Reconsider camo on TD's with low camo.hmm im gonna go 1st skill as repair across the board still
for TD's i will go camo first
i should wait to choose my other skills until everyone has had a chance to play and test them out hehe
I hope so. Based on my subjective experience (read handful of battles with and encounters against) it doesn't look good for the m103.This thread
makes me think the M103 is actually harder to pen that the T34. With many tanks that laugh at T34 hull armor, you will now have to aim for the lower glacis of the M103. 203mm effective means it can bounce KT's 105 or BL9 with angling.
I'm still wondering what the deal with the T110 is. I'd guess that the lower glacis will be fair game for any tier10 gun and maybe fair game for some tier9 guns. But I guess I'll have to try it or wait for whining on the forums, lol.
several hours ahead=04/01/2012Some news from the publisher, which is several hours ahead - the Soviet tanks are finally going to get fixed from their terribly underpowered situation.
A greatly expanded tech tree is planned, including new tanks that will go to new tier levels higher than 10.
did you at least send crew to barracks/demount modules before you sold it?I got 7 consecutive losses in my new Pershing...I suppose I just don't play mediums well. It has no armor, same basic gun as the T20 but it is much slower. sure it is agile...which doesn't give you much as anything can penetrate and you're a big target.
Basically, it has no obvious strong stats that I can use. Am I wrong? what am I doing wrong anyway?
I sold it for now, I couldn't even make a profit off of it so decided to grind a couple of moneymakers first, by going back to my roots - getting the T49 and the M18 later today.
When I'll be a bit more experienced I'll go back to it. I did well in the T20 but it had much better matchmaking.
