Okay.

You know, I used to own a Ram-II. I never actually used it, though…

Since I’m on that train of thought, which of the American Tier 5 Medium Tanks do you think is best?

Judging from what the WoT wiki says (I haven’t played any American t5 med besides the M4), I have this to say about them:

Ram-II

It only has one available gun, which I dislike. But I’ll let it slide because the gun is pretty good.

Armor is excellent for a T5.

Speed limit could be better.

Traverse isn’t phenomenal, about average.

HP is excellent for a med. I think it has about as many hit points as my KV-1.

Turret traverse is average.

Ammo capacity is great for the damage it deals.

Slopage is meh. Not good, not bad.

All in all, I’d give it a 7/10. Good tank, but the fact that you have to buy it drives the score down, for me anyway.

M7

Speed limit is excellent. Really quite good for a medium.

Traverse is above average, bordering on great.

Armor is lacking, severely. 38 frontal hull armor is going to get you killed quickly.

The first gun is okay, good ammo storage but highly lacking in punch. 6 Pounder is good, especially the amount of ammo it can hold for its type, but still doesn’t have a very good punch. 75mm Gun M3/L is excellent.

Turret traverse is great.

Slopage is good. You’ll probably get a few shell bounces because of it.

Overall, it would work better as an overkill light tank than a medium. 7/10.

M4

Speed limit is good.

Traverse is average.

Armor is okay, bordering on good.

First gun is effective, but lacking. Second gun is excellent, but the rate of fire can be a set-back, which is why I got a medium gun rammer for it.

Turret traverse is good.

Slopage is good.

With the 105mm, it can take on nearly anything that it has a chance of getting matched up with. Armor is still lacking, though. 8/10.

M4A2E4

Speed limit is good.

Traverse is average.

Armor is exceptional.

Only has one gun, but it’s effective.

Turret traverse is average, bordering on good.

Slopage is bad. This tank looks easy to pen from the front.

6/10.

Just so I can get a reference here, what kinds of tanks would you rate as 1s or 10s on your scale?

I don’t think I could rate anything as a 1, but close to it would probably be either the D2 or the T-28. A 10 is impossible as well, but near it is either the Type 59 or T29/T34 (I’ve never played one of the three, but they all seem like great tanks).

So the M4A2E4 is just barely above average, the Ram-II and M7 are above average, and the plain M4 Sherman is good, correct?

I might actually have to give the Stuarts a shot if I can get the game working again. I’ll also have to buy a Ram-II again. But my main focus will have to be on the M3 Lee, to get a Sherman.

However, I did notice that you never said a thing about power/weight ratios.

Power/weight doesn’t really matter to me. Just the speed limit and traverse.

Power/weight governs acceleration.

So in other words, the better the P/WR, the better your odds of making an escape from a bad situation.

EDIT: Besides, you know I want a general purpose tank, not a specialist. Acceleration matters to a general purpose tank. Maybe not as much as for a scout, but…

EDIT2: Where’s Phoenix when you need him?

Thing is, I think I might end up having fun in an M7 (especially once I upgrade it with the 6 pdr. gun), but the only way to get one is through the Stuarts.

I went throught the American light and mediu line (through the Stuarts and M7) and when I wanted to get the American heavies….I had to start all the way back on the M2 Medium Tank. If I went to the M4 sherman, I could have split off into the E8 or the E2 just fine….

I’ve only went through the light tank line and currently working up the medium (at the M3 Lee shortly)

But speaking from experience, I loved the M7 MT. It was really great for circle strafing and the 6 pounder had like 2.5 seconds reload time so I can just go around shooting everything :P

Anyway, yeah, I think I’ll have to give scouting a go next time I get the game working.

You wouldn’t happen to have any solutions for what I mentioned at the tail end of the last page, would you?

So, Phoenix, you got any tips for running a Stuart?

I intend to use them both, so you might as well give tips for both, if you can.

How exactly is Kapersky interfering with your game? More details would be useful.

It’s gonna be difficult that’s for sure, I’m not very keen on light tanks, especially the T3 and T4 levels.

The M3 Stuart should be played similar as to what you’ve been playing so far. You’ll only see mostly Tier 5s in that thing.

The M5 though is gonna be thrown in with Tier 9s so you’ll need to be very careful. Don’t suicide scout, that’s usually just a waste of spotting ability (unless you’re coordinated with an arty beforehand but still, not as good). Also, get the 75mm Howitzer and leave out those popguns. It would also be a good idea to get that Tier IX radio, it’s used on a lot of US tanks (not as useful as getting the FuG12, DAYUM that radio works on everything!)

The trick to being a scout is to go where the enemies AREN’T. Wait for everyone to engage each other (having a big radio helps here) and finding a point where the enemy are lightest to get to their base. Of course, your team will be like “GODDAMIT SCOUT GET OUT THERE NAOW!” just ignore them.

There are also some spots on the map that are handy for scouting. For example, the hill right in the middle of the map “Mines” If you can stay alive on top of that hill, you’re getting a lot of spotting done.

Or for example:

See that dune at C6 and D6 on Sand River? Many scouts dash there, peek above the dune and then reverse very quickly. You can usually spot 4 or 5 of the enemy team there, usually big heavy tanks for your arty.

A lot of the maps have these kinds of locations, it takes skill and experience to find them.


Overall, I don’t like how the game forces very new players in these huge tier ups. I would just leave it to the Chaffees and T-50-2s.

Is it possible for a player to give gold to another player? Or is that, along with trading tanks, prohibited?

Also, while we’re on the subject of arties, I have something to ask. Why do arties seem to be the most disrespected vessel in WoT, right beside scouts?

I mean, seriously. The most common form of arty-hate is when a scout lights up the enemy vehicles for half a second, dies, and then insults the arty for not paying attention. WE WERE PAYING ATTENTION, BUT IF YOU DIDN’T REALISE, TARGETS MOVE. IF WE WERE ABLE TO HIT THE TARGETS, WE WOULD’VE HIT THEM.

I will admit, in many games, the artillery is incompetent. But just because they’re not lighting up a target that you popped on the minimap doesn’t automatically mean they’re worthless.

So, why do people seem to scold the arties so much? Are they just easy to scapegoat?

Also, on an unrelated note, I like how me, you, and Nair are the only people who post in this thread anymore.

I don’t know precisely how Kaspersky is interfering with my ability to play the game, Phoenix. That’s what sucks.

If I knew what was up, I might have been able to figure it out by now.

But thanks for the advice. I should just run the M3 as if I were in an M2 Med, then?

Jun 23, 2012 at 12:54PM EDT

Okay, so I just deleted Kaspersky from my system and switched to Norton AntiVirus with Antispyware.

If this doesn’t solve the problem…

Jun 23, 2012 at 02:44PM EDT

Damned edit time limit. If not for that, I wouldn’t be triple posting right now.

Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know that the game is working now.

I bought a new Ram-II Medium Tank and went into battle with it. Three kills (a Panzer III/IV, a BT-7 and something else I didn’t quite catch the name of) and I shot up a T-46 pretty bad before getting finished off by a KV-1.

Granted, I was using a Gun Laying Drive, Ventilation, a Rammer and Cola, but I think the 6 pdr. is a badass.

Jun 23, 2012 at 03:31PM EDT

The six pounder is pretty badass. It has low alpha but the high pen and the excellent ROF makes up for it.

Captain Serious wrote:

Pretty much, I don’t think it has THAT high a battle tier.

Most people haven’t actually played Arty to any large extent so they don’t understand the SPGs aren’t GPS Guided Orbital death rays, we have limitations that they don’t understand at all.

Another thing is that being hit by arty….is really annoying, a high explosive shell (which has a better chance to damage modules/crew than an AP round) hits you from a distance you can’t see for a huge amount of damage? It’s basically a camper’s dream weapon and you know how campers are normally treated in other games

Hey, I think the three of us should platoon together some time. Granted, I don’t have anything above Tier 4 on any Tech Tree yet, but I’m making steady progress.

Jun 24, 2012 at 02:24AM EDT

I have everything from Tier II all the way up to Tier VIII.

I’m actually gonna be boarding a flight tommorow, so I’ll be unavailable for a while but we should run a 3 man platoon soon.

Okay, I’ve been on a WoT binge lately.

Been playing long hours, staying up ’til sunrise trying to earn enough EXP to unlock the next tank.

At this point, if it isn’t premium tank, French or an SPG, and it’s Tier 4 or below, I most likely own one. I’ve been spreading my EXP around, researching anything and everything I could.

I’ve Elited a bunch of tanks. All Tier 1s and a bunch of Tier 2s. Maybe even a couple Tier 3s as well. I’ve been using lots of Gold to convert EXP earned in Elite vehicles into Free EXP so as to make it a bit easier to grind.

I’ve fully upgraded an M5 Stuart, but have yet to research either the M7 Medium or M24 Chaffee tanks, so I haven’t Elited it yet. I still have yet to research any Tier 5 vehicles.

The last match I played, I was driving an SU-85B. I had armed it with the 57mm ZiS-2. I got three kills, and did some serious damage from long range. I was having a blast.

I’ve gotten used to Tank Destroyers, and I will commit to full development of all TD lines. However, I still have yet to commit to one nation. I’m still working three tech trees. That’s not even getting into the fact that I will still be developing the Light, Medium and Heavy Tank lines, as well as TD lines.

I have a long way to go…

Anyway, what’s the soonest either of you think we could platoon together?

Jun 25, 2012 at 06:29AM EDT

Add me: burning_phoneix

The moment you see me log on, shoot me a message. If I’m not in a platoon already, I’ll jump in with ya.

Couldn’t get on my flight so I’m royally pissed off and blowing shit up in WoT helps me relieve stress.

In terms of development, the operation Bagration special means I got my T-43 and at stock it’s horrible :( We’ll see how it develops since it has some good bounce-ability on the armour.

Also, I finally got the 107mm ZiS on my SU-85 and GODDAMN this thing is a beast. First match in it I got Top Gun. Unfortunately I still fucking lost :(

I’ve already added you, Phoenix. I just need to know about this from Fedora.

For the record, Fedora, I don’t know your WoT username. You can either post it here or PM me. Either way works.

Jun 25, 2012 at 06:26PM EDT

The ingame system for WoT is really shitty, it doesn’t inform you that someone has added you as a friend.

So let’s create a sort of chat channel in the game to ease this communication. The name of the channel will be….hmmm… Know Your Tanks

Do be informed that chat channels expire given an amount of time so if you don’t find it, feel free to create it.

I’m going to take a quick break, get a bite to eat.

But why haven’t you guys been on?

Don’t worry, after June 28th, I’m moving to an easier time zone (+3GMT) so I’ll be easier to platoon with. Right now this time zone isn’t helping, I played like 3 or 4 hours of tanks yesterday and didn’t see you on :(

I just got my first Tier 5 vehicle.

An M7 Medium Tank.

Only problem I have right now is that it’s armed with a pathetic little M-6 37mm.

I’ve upgraded the turret so I can mount either of the 75s for it, but I have yet to upgrade the suspension. I also don’t have the 6 pdr. yet. I have however gotten the first of two engine upgrades.

EDIT: Okay, I just got the suspension upgrade. I have now armed my M7 Medium with a 75mm M3L/37. I think I’ll be able to hold my own until I can get the 6 pdr.

Earlier today, I also unlocked the Soviet T-34 Medium Tank. I had previously researched the 57mm ZiS-4 cannon on the T-28, and once I upgraded my T-34’s turret, I found out just why it’s called “a goddamn buzzsaw.”

Granted, much like with the Ram-II I told you guys about some days ago, I was using Ventilation, a Gun Laying Drive and Extra Rations, in conjunction with an Academy crew, to get the absolute most out of that gun.

Also, just in case you wanted to know, I am now running the 85mm F-30 on my T-28. Makes it hard to ignore when I end up against Tier 7s, as has happened. But when I draw Tier 4 battles? It’s just overkill.

Jun 29, 2012 at 08:20PM EDT

Alright guys, today’s the day. Phoenix, Fedora, I hope you’re ready.

Three man platoon. Today. We gotta make this happen. I’ve gotten an M4 Sherman, a T-34 and an M7 Medium. Those are my best vehicles. They’re all Tier 5 medium tanks, and I enjoy all three.

Let’s do this.

Jun 30, 2012 at 10:28AM EDT

So many tanks, so little time…

Earlier today, I unlocked my first German Tier5 tank, the Panzer III/IV Medium Tank. I’m currently grinding the Panzer 38NA to unlock the Panzer IV.

I’m also working the M3 Lee to get my hands on a T1 Heavy Tank. I’ve already got a KV-1, but I don’t think I like it that much. Too slow and hard to maneuver. I think I’ll still follow the heavy tank lines just because, and because I hear some can be relatively agile, but I doubt they’ll be my primary tanks. I prefer Mediums.

EDIT: Also, I need a World of Tanks-related avatar.

I need one of those, but I’m taking everything tier by tier. So I likely won’t get my hands on anything from Tier 6 until I’ve unlocked everything from Tier 5 that isn’t a Light Tank.

By the way, grinding the 38NA is a bitch. Tier 4 Light Tanks are often thrown into high tier matches, up to Tier 9. But the 38NA doesn’t really feel like a scout to me.

Jul 01, 2012 at 09:27PM EDT

I’m sure you’re wondering how I go through so much Gold in so little time.

I take advantage of Elite Vehicles and EXP Conversion. Makes grinding easier. Granted, this does mean that I often have a vehicle fully upgraded before I ever take it into battle, but it’s worth it.

I don’t use APCR rounds, but where they’re available, I do use HEAT rounds to increase my effective range. Maybe I shouldn’t fill my derpguns with HEAT shells due to their low accuracy, but I prefer to run a mix of 3 parts AP/HEAT to 1 part regular HE, since I prefer to stay at range and only engage enemies that I can reliably penetrate.

Also, .50 accuracy isn’t actually that bad when you really think about it. I can still snipe effectively to some degree. As long as I can find time to sit still long enough for my sights to zero in on the target.

And in case you’re curious, I now have two Tier 5 Tank Destroyers: a Soviet SU-85 (my first one), and an American T49.

Not bad. Goes like absolute hell when you put the hammer down, but it still has a crappy turret traverse rate. Guess that’s the way they chose to balance turreted TDs and SPGs.

Not the thickest armor or best sloped, but it has some endurance. Good guns, too. Powerful, accurate and high penetration. Maybe not the best in any one area, but good across the board.

Jul 04, 2012 at 03:38AM EDT

I’m really sorry for being gone for such a long time guys but I really can’t play WoT on my bro’s shitty ass computer. The mouse cursor doesn’t sit in one place, the keys stick and the board is slanted because one of the pegs is gone so it doesn’t sit still.

Yeah it’s gonna be a while till I play again.

BTW, Thomas HEAT rounds seem awesome but they actually suffer when facing the spaced and sloped armour of late tier tanks. They’ll outperform regular AP shells but the shown value is misleading.

For example, the King Tiger has 150mm of frontal armour…but it’s sloped at 50 degrees which give it:

Upper Glacis = 150mm at 50 degrees from vertical

Effective protection versus AP = 202mm
Effective protection versus APCR/APDS = 190mm
Effective protection versus HE/HEAT = 233mm

I think I linked this before but just in case:
forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/59463-effective-armor-protection-comparison/


Hopefully I’ll be tanking with you guys soon!

EDIT: BTW Thomas, SU-85+107mm ZiS is fucking beast.

Okay, so I just played a Standard Battle on Ensk in my Garbage Truck. My team lost, but that wasn’t my fault.

I pushed up the east side of the map. I got into their spawn.

And I charged.

I ran in, 75mm cannon blazing. I took out two enemy SPGs before engaging in an intense close quarter battle. My 75mm M3L/37 was hitting them hard, and I took out a couple of enemy tanks up close and personal. I took out an SU-18 with a one-two “ram and blast” attack and destroyed an enemy M3 Stuart before a hostile UE 57 finally put me down by shooting me in the ass.

If not for that damned Rat, I could have won the match for my team. Still, that definitely isn’t what the Lee is good at, and I pulled it off.

Okay, so I just played a Standard Battle on Ensk in my Garbage Truck. My team lost, but that wasn’t my fault.

I pushed up the east side of the map. I got into their spawn.

World of Tanks really has the best models of WWII tanks, I can’t wait to see what people would do with them combined with the Source Filmmaker.
Also: WHY is the King Tiger so freaking epic?
