    Still haven't got long 105. Worth using over 88? Might bleed credits.

    First 105mm for the KT isnt worth it because it gives you less pen and at tier 8 you want to pen most of the bigger tanks you're fighting. But I've been told the second 105mm can pen pretty much anything that you'll meet with some precise shooting.

    It's only 3 penetration lol. First 105 is well worth it because alpha damage is often better than dpm. Only reason to stick with the 88 is if you play without premium and are afraid to lose money. If that's the case then you might as well grind the E75 with the 88.

    Edited:

    Well I just had a battle where my team was filled with red noobs vs a team of green and purple. We had 5% winchance. I just gave up and drove into the enemy base suiciding.


    Later I check my log.. Victory. Wat.

    So, playing around in the replay of a match I dinged a lot of shells in, I noticed that the shell "impacts" well before it physically does.

    Proof:



    ^Note that the ding mark you see is from the shell you also see^




    This one was really far away:

    I think that's more an effect of server lag, if you watch closely in a video that I posted a while back you can see that it looks like I fired sideways

    Dragon Ridge getting temp-removed for a while on EU
    On Monday 9th July during the server restart, a minor patch will be applied.

    The server will be down between 07:00 h CEST (05:00 GMT) and 07:30 h CEST (05:30 GMT).

    This server patch will remove the Dragon Ridge map from the game so that we can make some improvements to it. Once the work has been completed, the map will be returned to the game.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    I don't, mostly because it's a fucking memory leak hell.

    That said, it's basically a campfest in the town to see who flanks who.

    If you play low tier battles the people who don't have a score are players who just started the game. The scores only update once every 1-2 weeks.

    Dragon Ridge is a bit of a pain in the ass, but I wouldn't dare compare it to Komarin or Province. Still, that memory leak is ridiculous. Even I've occasionally seen red textures and I have 16gb of RAM.

    Dunno, I have a fairly old pc with 4gb RAM and I never had any memory leaks.

    It's a hetzer, except it got no armor, long shape and taller, and the guns except for the 105 is shit as fuck.
    Though it can still fuck shit up in it's own tier but just not as much as the hetzer would.

    Two questions:
    What does that number next to 'k' mean?
    And how do I deal with a Tiger with 1450HP while I have an M8A1 with a 75mm gun and 250HP? I just had this situation and I was wondering what a pro would do.

    Oh geez, was hiding behind a house as m'old faithful StuG when a scout popped up not far off on the minimap. Move out of cover, fire off a shot, move back in. A god damn T14 rolls around the corner a moment after as if it was like the mother of that scout, and the next 30 seconds is me feverishly backpedaling and going I'M SORRY I'M SORRY I'M SORRY while firing at it. Surprisingly enough, mummy tank's shells all missed completely and I managed to take it out.
    Once I stop to catch my breath, a Hetzer rolls through the wall, gives me a heart attack and I one-shot it. As soon as I stop to admire my handiwork, though, I get taken out by some artillery shell and that's the end of that. Ah well.

    Jesus, does the Panzer 4 get any better when I get the big guns?

    Fuck man, the History Channel told me I could fuck shit up in this tank. I feel like I'm driving a piece of paper with a gun that can't pierce shit.

    It's not any better, tier 9 match making, gun only enough to penetrate tier 7 after waiting 5 to aim down, less damage and dpm than 90mm guns, paper armor, slow as f***.

    Wish I had more of these moments. So far I've had two in my KV-1.
    In the most recent one I'm beset by a PzIII, UE 57 and a couple others. I get de-tracked and take serious damage but manage to destroy the UE 57, PzIII and another medium I forgot. Then I'm finally about to get back to my team mates and get Hetzer 10,5cm up my alley. I survive the shot but I'm still waiting for my 122mm to reload. I try to get behind a house but then the Hetzer gets another shot in my rear and I go boom.

    It also costs more to repair a Panther II than a King Tiger, in my experiences.
