[QUOTE=Gray Altoid;34856910]So I'm downloading the client now, and I have no idea about tanks at ALL. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good starting tank or something?[/QUOTE] I only had a very basic understanding of tank combat when I first started, and I'm doing great. Go down the Soviet heavy line. (Use the Ms-1 tank and get enough XP to get the T26. Go all the way down that line. The first heavy tank is in that line, and it's really easy to play. Very forgiving if you make a mistake, and all it's guns will teach you the differences in different types of guns in the game. You should also go down the American Tank destroyer line.

Russian heavies and American TDs / Mediums are the way to go.
So the tiger P is pretty much fucking invulnerable to a fully upgraded tiger from the front How the fuck is that fair
[QUOTE=scout1;34857500]So the tiger P is pretty much fucking invulnerable to a fully upgraded tiger from the front How the fuck is that fair[/QUOTE] I usually aim for the turret, instead of the body. You could try shooting the little tread flaps in the front of the Tiger P. I never tried it, but I take considerable damage from it in some cases when I use my Tiger P in battle.

[QUOTE=Orkel;34856211]According to SerB, tier 5-9 TDs will get reduced profitability in 7.2 Just4fun, your credit printing Jagdtiger is gonna get nerfed.[/QUOTE]So are they just going to nerf profitability on everything until the only way to have enough money is to have a premium?

I got off 5 shots with the long 88. 3 bounced top hull, 1 bounced lower hull, last bounced turret
[QUOTE=scout1;34857992]I got off 5 shots with the long 88. 3 bounced top hull, 1 bounced lower hull, last bounced turret[/QUOTE] The Tiger P has a lot of frontal weaknesses, I think you just had very bad luck.

My T25 AT seems pretty solid and I like the damage the big gun puts out, but it's front armor is just so pathetic.
[QUOTE=Shogoll;34858112]The Tiger P has a lot of frontal weaknesses, I think you just had very bad luck.[/QUOTE] It still seems unfair given that the tiger P can pen me at any part of my frontal armor Why the hell is the tiger a tier 7 anyway? It doesn't have the armor for this shit.
[QUOTE=scout1;34857992]I got off 5 shots with the long 88. 3 bounced top hull, 1 bounced lower hull, last bounced turret[/QUOTE] cant aim for hull, have to hit turret Tiger P was one of the tanks i had the most fun with

My T25 AT seems pretty solid and I like the damage the big gun puts out, but it's front armor is just so pathetic.[/QUOTE] I hope you don't mind losing all of that T25 speed. On the bright side, the T28 can actually bounce most shots from the front, and while the 105 eats credits, the 120 isn't nearly as bad.
I'm starting to learn that arty hunting with the Leopard is pretty fun. Also >2015 -3 >goon not being in mumble >ISHYGDDT
Sorry Valdor, blew you up that round. It was a risky shot and it didn't work.
[QUOTE=scout1;34858231]It still seems unfair given that the tiger P can pen me at any part of my frontal armor Why the hell is the tiger a tier 7 anyway? It doesn't have the armor for this shit.[/QUOTE] it does actually, it's just all flat and everything at that point has +100 pen guns.

[url]http://worldoftanks.com/community/accounts/1000694742-MorterMonkey/[/url] This guy was in his fully upgraded Lorraine 40t, and he said he was going to protect our arty, so I called him a dumbass, so he threatened to 1v1 duel me, then when he moved up he asked arty to follow him along.
[QUOTE=goon165;34858383]it does actually, it's just all flat and everything at that point has +100 pen guns.[/QUOTE] In other words it doesn't have armor that can protect shit
Finally had a round where I felt like I was actually GOOD at this game. :v: [img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v45/Zero_Point/shot_034.jpg[/img] Resupply bill ate all my creds though. :saddowns:

i really think it should go down a tier like the panther. Tiger at T6 with the short 88 would kick a fair amount of ass, especially since the KV3 is going to T7. Heavy tanks should not have the best guns, honestly. Heavies should excel in armor but have mediocre firepower and rely on TDs and mediums to destroy other heavy tanks. Hell, could even make the Tiger tier 5. Put the 3601 as tier 6, and P as tier 7. The tiger was a fair match for the KV1 on occasion.
[QUOTE=Doom14;34858117]Insanely jealous. How does the T28 fair? My T25 AT seems pretty solid and I like the damage the big gun puts out, but it's front armor is just so pathetic.[/QUOTE] I might be a really bad player, but to be honest I find it just horrible. You are a [I]snack[/I] for arty. Hummels twoshot you, while you are slow as fuck so there is basically no way to avoid them, except getting to cover and camping there all match. The frontal armor gets penetrated by T8 heavies like, half of the time, and two thirds of time by T9 heavies, and everything with precise enough gun can penetrate the cupolas. If anything tier 5 and up gets to your side, you can quit the game. You are long as fuck and turn slowly, so there is no way to out-turn the flanker, and your sides and ass are paper. You get engine damaged from frontal shots, you get set on fire by pretty much every second hit to ass. Seriously, it's one of the worst experiences I ever had in this game, and I admit, I don't have the 120mm yet, which [I]might[/I] make it slightly more bearable, but it's combination of HORRIBLE speed and not so great armor is murderous. [editline]25th February 2012[/editline] I want to point out I really enjoyed T25.
[QUOTE=Awesomecaek;34858796] The frontal armor gets penetrated by T8 heavies like, half of the time[/quote] Tell me your secrets, awesomecaek I have only penetrated that thing frontally like ten times throughout my whole history of encountering it (not much) and the only weakspot seems to be the weeny little cupolas that stick out the top [editline]f[/editline] ...Although I admit I haven't really taken the time to aim at anything else
I actually have 47% win rate still having the 105mm, so I guess it could go well over 50% with the 120, but I have to say that the tank is still pain and makes me fear getting the T95, as that will be only even slower.
Still better than an ISU-152. Inaccurate gun, no armor anywhere at all, slow as fuck turns slow as fuck, shit view range, shit camo rating. I still can't find the advantage of this tank and I can tell it will get worse with the 704.

I just have IS-3 popping out of cover, going HERP, and penetrating the lower hull (where the gearbox is). T9 heavies just send shells through the upper hull, right next to the mantlet. I know it shouldn't happen, I agree that I myself ding them quite frequently, but my T28 is either faulty or I have really shit tier luck.

The T82 is pretty fun to drive but dunno if I should waste time on it or go directly to the next one. [editline]25th February 2012[/editline] Mounting a 105mm on what is pretty much a jeep with tracks seems like a very dakka thing to do though.
