    I try not to call it the derp gun, but it slips out occasionally. Depends who I'm talking to, I guess.
    When Im rolling churchill platoons with my broski, we crawl around together and take turns being the bullet sponge. Conversation goes like this:
    Kv around the corner
    *I use that zooming out mod to check for gun
    152 on it
    shit
    pop out, hope he misses, then start pounding and count to 20 seconds
    oh fuck hide

    I used to be the same way but after peasant grinding the last few days it's not that bad. Even manage to profit on my Pershing.

    Well hopefully if the clan wars cluster merge goes through sometime you can join us.

    If the cluster merge happens and the matches will be at reasonable times, I am pretty sure quite a few EU guys could support the clan very well.

    Orkel is on our side. We can't lose.

    Facepunch would do a lot better if the tactics were more planned out and each tank being used had a specific role instead of "go north and push, go middle and hold"

    But then again who really has the time to plan that out, and since our tank builds change depending on who shows up it would be too crazy

    Maybe I'm blind to something or just being optimistic but our Erlenberg plans seem to work pretty well until we have to fight an opponent who can win via drawing.
    True some of our competition has been lacking but we have won a couple of "real" matches pretty soundly, and even against NUKE we did really well last night (thanks to arty).

    I just think we need one more reliable arty player and avoid making brash "Rush X" calls that funnel us across bridges and let us get demolished by T110s on ridgelines.

    Could work if you could counter battery since the other arty have a longer reload time.

    Clan Wars are filled with corrupted coop clans and shitty gold ammo battles. I'm just playing WoT for fun (lol fun) and I'm not in the slightest interested in that shithole called Clanwars.

    I'm not good enough for clan stuff. I would single handedly make a clan look bad. I would quit this game but goddamnit its like cocaine.

    If Im going counter, I might possibly put the 152 back on, 40 second reload isn't really ass effective for bush clearing.

    I found the 203mm better suited becuase with 152mm you often hit perfectly and fail to instakill.

    S-51 isn't a real counterarty. At the tier, best CA is GWP. The o212 is slightly better.

    Obj261 is the best CA in the game. Fastest reload of all top tiers, insane accuracy, and ability to quickly relocate.

    Not worth it. Just stick with the 203 and don't even bother countering. Hit the high tiers.

    Edited:

    But also terrible splash which means you'll have to do a direct hit to kill. GWtiger+ and M40/43+ can one shot kill arties without hitting them directly. Imo the GW panther and M12 are the best counter arties, you don't need a tier8 arty to oneshot enemy arty anyway, even a hummel can do that.

    I usually counter when when there is 3+ arty. You get much higher chance you notice someone's tracer, and you also have much higher chance you get countered otherwise.

    Sometimes I manage to get 3 counter arty kills in a single match and it's usually guaranteed victory at this point.

    Clan Wars are filled with clans that have successfully maneuvered on the in-game and political battlefields to secure mutually-beneficial agreements that basically nullify the game's horrendously overpriced micro-transaction model for their respective members, the slightly adverse effect being an abundance of shitty gold ammo battles.
    Fixed.

    I saw a patton moving sideways at 500m yesterday, fired at him and somehow managed to hit, did 800dmg, tracked, set him on fire which burned all the way and then he got artied

    That's wrong.

    Obj261 has 5.14m splash.
    GWP has 3.57m splash which is 30% smaller.
    GWE has 7m splash which is 36% bigger, but you have to keep on mind it has 33% accuracy AND 20% lower RPM (while alpha barely matters because assuming you hit, both instakill all arties)
    T92 has 9.14m splash which is 77% bigger, but 50% accuracy, and also the overkill like in GWEs case but only even much worse.

    Also, if I remember right Obj261 has highest shell travel speed, which makes it harder to dodge.

    Edited:

    The heavier arties are better for cracking Mause or E-100 open, but if you want to counter arty, Obj261 just takes the cake.

    For effective splashing it's not only radius thats important, it's also damage.

    I've played both the 261 and T92 quite a bit in randoms and I found the T92 easier to counter with. T92 might have poor accuracy but the massive radius and damage annihilates any arty even if it's a miss. Object261 is an excellent sniper and can effectively use AP over long distance, but trying to kill arty that is smart enough to move directly after firing is almost impossible because it has to be a direct hit.
    Anyhow, I still think its a waste of time trying to find and hit enemy arty while you could spend that time hitting enemy heavies. Helping your team getting through enemy lines by clearing their top tiers will lead to victory more often than taking one 1 or 2 arties, plus you will earn more xp and credits.

    With all that said, I'm glad i sold my arty. I haven't missed it a second.

    I just think we need one more reliable arty player and avoid making brash "Rush X" calls that funnel us across bridges and let us get demolished by T110s on ridgelines.
    We also need to declare a single commander during battle. I keep hearing too much "PERSON X GO HERE". If the ingame commander wants to temporarily hand off command to someone else, that's fine. But damn people need to shut the fuck up. I remember hearing "T110 guard Wiseman's rear" "What are you doing? Go south" etc...
