    Real talk: I've only damaged two team mates while firing arty in this game and one was a kill that landed on the very outer edge of the circle I had positioned not to hit him, which was just dumb (un)luck.

    Another note: I've only team killed one person on purpose in the whole game. Ever.

    I'm in an IS-3, him and IS. He kept swerving and ramming me from behind while we were pushing to the front lines. I told him he needed to learn how to drive his tank. He takes this as provocation to get in front of our entire flank and block us from getting in position. Everyone goes "What the fuck." I shoot him. He moves out, I think we're all done.

    (Fun fact: Guy has 4k battles. 42% win rate. 410 efficiency.)

    As we start to move up, he shoots me in the back of the turret. I hear a plink. ALL BETS ARE OFF. My favorite part: I took the first shot, my team obliterated his health thinking he was attacking me first, I finish him off. We lose by a hair and I lose 20k silver. Not a single fuck given.

    There is a lot of things I don't understand about T28/T95 but it makes sense that the one without doubled tracks has less armor, because even the one with doubled tracks wasn't supposed to have 155mm and then why would they add them if one pair of tracks could hold the armor?

    I teamkill shits all the time but ironically it almost never happens in arty because I don't have to care about their dumb asses and I rarely ever take risky shots, not because I would be afraid of team damage but because if there is teammate next to the enemy, it's possible he will block the shell and save the enemy, making it waste of shell. I either wait for the tanks to unstuck or choose another target.

    You got lucky.

    The (rather high - like whole quarter of the hull you can see from the front) weld area is 254mm and nigh impenetrable by anything because it's sloped, part up part down parts to sides.

    The top is 140mm and very sloped. Possible to penetrate if you are above the T-110 or he is driving down a decline.

    The bottom is 114mm and least sloped, but still very well sloped and very hard to penetrate unless you are under the T110 or he is peeking up over a hill.

    Generally the best bet for guns with penetration over 200 is the tumor, but that still 178mm of armor and has some nasty slopes on itself, mainly around the MG sticking out of it (it's better to shoot into the lower part of it).

    It's balanced by the fact T110 has side nearly no side/ass armor and anything can penetrate it there, and it's tracks are the size of Oklahoma so as long as you aren't 1v1, one guy detracks it as it moves, it does 45 degree spin, and you rape it through the idler (front upper wheel), doing damage and keeping it tracked.

    I don't really think it's OP but camping with it and keeping distance, abusing your massive DPM, precision and penetration is fucking easymode.
    I said that because I just had a match that a T110E5 was right in front of me (about 100m or 150m) shooting at a E-75 with only his frontal armor visible,so I aimed at the left side of the armor and did 320 of damage,reloaded,same side and almost same damage,I really don't know if I've hit twice the same spot,like hull MG,because with the 122mm of the IS is kinda hard to hit a weak spot

    Something like this:

    Got my rightful Ace tanker on KV-2.

    Did 990 dmg shot to T32 and finished him with another
    Killed T-150 who somebody damaged
    Oneshotted an M7 and 2 KV-1s.


    And I don't even have any equipment and my crew is still at 95% of the primary skill.

    I sold my KV-1 but I can't wrap my head around why the hell did they create 57mm 413 when it's 100% identical to 57mm ZiS-4 with a fire rate which even sits within ZiS-4s interval of possible RoF on other tanks.

    It looks like they did it purely to force people who got it on T-28 to research it again.

    Edited:

    Same with the 85mm S-31 compared to old 85mm F-30. It has whole 1mm less penetration and slightly different RoF range.

    Me against an E-75, Ferdi and a T29 at half health, a T-150, T25/2 and a KV-2 are at base camping. All they had to do was get the attention of the T29 so I could kill the E-75 without taking fire from the side but they didn't and me and a GwPanther had to kill the Ferdi.

    I got killed by the E-75 and then about 5 minutes after my death the T-150 says "atak" and goes across the middle of the map actually spotting the T29 letting arty kill him then they all stayed at the bottom of a hill not wanting to spot the E-75 in case they died. The E-75 had 150 health and they could have easily taken him or spotted for arty.

    Whyyyyyy.

    Why? 57 has better DPS, way better accuracy and better aimingtime, and has only 8 penetration less than the 85mm.

    Not to mention lightning fast projectiles which I slowly more and more realize to be more important than accuracy itself to a degree, for me.

    I tried the T-150 with the 57mm, it's actually interesting. Like a fat slow T-34 machine gun that actually bounces shots.

    Can't wait to engage in exciting naval battles involving non-existent Russian Dreadnoughts, fully equipped with cloaking technology.


    Still I am curious about the game. Although I wouldn't be surprised if they managed to sneak in the same BS armor mechanics from WoT.

    Armor is obviously going to be in. Deck and belt armor, probably superstructure armor too etc

    However, the average height of a Japanese person at the time was too small for the M4A3E8, and drivers had difficulty reaching the clutch pedal with their foot.

    More on the Type 61

    Its 90mm gun was produced by the Japan Steel Works, Ltd., using the renowned U.S. type M3A1 gun as a pattern.
    Okay that's fucking awful for a tier 9, isn't that the gun on the M6-

    Loading is manual and capable of firing 15 rounds per minute
    maybe not

    I know about the armor, but I mean the BS part of the mechanics where your ship obviously has the right guns to do considerable damage or penetration but fails to do so.

    RPM means exactly jackshit if you can't penetrate them, you might as well be throwing eggs at their hull.
