Having also played most of them (although not the Tier 10 ones), and played against them even more, German heavies still suck.

Would like to know, A) your ingame name, B) what way you typically played said heavies

Also, frankly, most tier 10 German players suck. I see E-100's and Maus' trying to pen my tank's (IS-7, E-75) strongest armor segments (turret, upper hull) while not even trying for the weak bits (lower plate, cupola).

Surely there can't be anything behind such a big number of complaints?

Have you looked at the whiney idiots who play this game lately? I mean, it was always kinda bad, but now it's to the point I can only absorb small doses of WoT.

I should note that I tend to think Scotty's correct on the VK45P more than Hades, though, because it has a serious side armor problem and the positioning of the turret renders it unable to quickly seek cover. Playstyle adaption can minimize but it cannot eliminate these weak points, especially when compared to other heavies.

The VKP's a weird one, not meant to be played like tanks with center or frontally-mounted turrets, which is not always possible. But when used right, oh man is it a toughie.

And a lemon is still useful for making lemonade.  That doesn't make it good by itself.  It needs a very select set of circumstances that are difficult to find in a pub match, and even more difficult to find if you're fighting and opponent that actually knows how to deal with it.

Nah. This is possible any time there is cover, which is often. And unless they rush you, they can't hurt you, and even then, rushing you causes them a lot of damage while you still have the ability to reposition your armor as they move at you, making them too weak to finish you on their own once they get close enough to nullify this tactic.

You've never been flanked before like that?  I don't believe it.  Might as well be painting a bright red "SHOOT HERE" sign on the side of your hull for anyone who's not hugging the wall you happen to be using as cover.

It's certainly possible, but when that happens, reposition! If they're coming from behind said building, they literally can't pen you if you do it right.

I find the T49 to be a total ***** to use after getting used to the M8A1, but I want that hellcat.

I got it yesterday, 15 games, 1 win. I need to work on how I use these turreted TD's.
Can't sit there after being spotted, but also need to be shooting stuff, too clunky to scout like a light, it's a interesting thing to figure out.

Interesting, but also frustrating at times when your shells bounce off an AMX40 and their arty/TD/heavy/whatever one-shots you

The Hellcat is sweet. It has a pretty fast reload, is the fastest TD in it's tier class.
When I played it, I always hung back and waited. When the scouts did their job, I charged in...sure, you're not as fast as a scout, but you are fast enough and pack the punch too go in and destroy their arty.

Just roam around a little ways away from whoever seems to have the most chance of surviving and is moving in the enemy's general direction. That way you're not in front, not falling behind and still able to support the team.

How are you not as fast as a scout? The M18 Hellcat could go up to 55 MPH, which is faster than the listed speeds of pretty much any modern tank by a good margin...

Only goes 72 kilometers after a bit of accel ingame due to engine limitations.

That engine limitation is being lifted in the next patch.  I've heard stories of Hellcats breaking 100 kph going downhill in the physics test.

Then again, I've seen a video of an E-50 breakin 90 kph downhill, so I suppose there's that.  ****'s gettin faster yo.

A decent scout is fast and can turn it's turret fast enough to match it's speed. While the Hellcat is fast, granted, you'll get problems to turn your turret while circling.

welp, got the upgrades for the T49 and a camo net, and now I've figured her out, she's a lot of fun, and supposedly the same playstyle as hellkitty, so I'll be content taking my time to get there.

Also picked up the panzer 4 and am working on getting the T-34 and KV-1 lines.

I wish MM would account for whether or not the tank has upgrades.

Sometimes I think it does, actually, but it supposedly doesn't.

Sidenote: the new physics engine is going to cause people to stop actually playing the game for a couple weeks. Why?



That's why.

The physics engine got me a bit exited when I visited the test server. Though I had hoped for even more climbing ability from it, but still it was great fun to see most of the players just drive around and off the mountains and bridges.

Actually I've missed the fun factor in WoT for some time now. After Tier 6 without Premium account not even money is there to ease a bad game.
Habeeb it...

It begins!

The age of the Maus drivers driving off cliffs and almost killing themselves to crush enemy tanks under their weight!

Soon no cliff or hills high enough for a tank to drive off through will be safe!  :lol:
