I derped my T-54 into a ravine and died at full health, which probably caused us the loss as I was one of the only 3 tier 9s on the team and the other 2 were rapidly dying due to incompetence. To be fair I had already dealt over 1000 damage at that point and saved our 2 arties from a marauding 13-90 though. :D

One more game I derped in my T69 (0 damage and got obliterated), but our team did a CapFast™ and won.

Few other times I'll chalk up to bad teams and terrible MM.

FWIW my understanding is that vents add 2.2% to tank abilities (5% to crew skills).

2.2% more spotting distance (subject to camo), reload speed, turning speed etc.

always VS > vents. You're also not shaving a whole second off your reload, more like .1 or .2. Out of rammer vents VS, vents is always the most useless and first to go. A lot of my tanks don't run vents, for example my T34 has gld, vstab and rammer.
That might be a better setup, but on my T34, I use Rammer/VS/Camo net. But I find it to be best at sniping.

What is with the lag now? Holy Christ I can barely shoot now because the reticle is jerking all over the place.

I'll be playing the BP, see if I can grind/make money to recoup my losses from playing my T69. Still can't win worth shit in my AC 1946 though. 3 battles 3 losses, each game dealing over 2k damage in tier 8/9 games as the bottom feeder. Just can't fucking win in this thing. But at least my winrate for the night was over 50% last night, ended at around 53% (still low).

Had a 4.9k damage in my T69 last night.... had only 3 misses. HEAT shells cost over 100k + I got blown up. With my winnings that came down to a 50k bill (non-prem) per game.

make no doubts, foch155 is probably one of the best tier 10 TDs and can 1 clip almost every single tank in the game. Everything leading up to it is kinda painful. (Tier 8 and 9 can be fun though, or so I've heard)

The british TD line is ... interesting. But also painful. I'm slogging through the AT2 and it's just not an impact tank. Lost count of the number of games I've lost because I could not get to a furball in time. Or was outmanuvered by semi-good players. Or got my ass handed to me by a KV-1 (packed 20 gold rounds just for them).

The rest of the line are all also heavy armor slow tanks.

It's like driving the T95 for tier 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 to get to the 183. Though the tortoise is pretty fantastic and so's the AT-7, but everything in the line are slow moving tanks that play like the T95.

alecto is the last fast tank in the line until you get to the 183. Everything after that has like a top speed of 20 going downhill. Even the churchills are faster than the ATs.

Dunno why, but I can't fucking win in my ac 1946. I get the shittiest teams with that tank and I can't carry tier 7 games, much less tier 9 games with the TD's shitty ass armor.

I'm on vacation so wont be in game for a couple of weeks. Last night was a decent night. I played pretty much all my tanks to grab the x3. Played for a few hours and then sometime after Midnight the teams turned stupid and I stopped. Good luck my tanking brothers.

I hated playing the 1946. The damn thing never bounces a single shot, and its just a lackluster tier 7. At least the 1948 has enough frontal armor to bounce shots and it has a gun worth a damn.

The weekend was ok. I didn't really try for x3 on all my tanks as I just dont find it worth it. I finally fully upgraded my KV-4 and now that I have the engine that extra 200hp makes all the difference. Its also odd that when driving the KV-4, people seem to want to ram me for some reason. I had an IS-8 ram me and kill himself for almost 500hp of damage and he only did around 100hp to me.

So what happens to all the people who own a T-50-2? Is it just like what happened to things like the T59, IS2, etc. where if you own it, you still have it, but otherwise you can't get it anymore?

You get a MT-25 in place of the t-50-2, and a brand new radioman that has no skills so it fucks up BIA, camo, and every other skill you have.
