    General information:

    Interested in playing a completely free-to-play tank MMO? There is no need to look any further, as World of Tanks has what you're looking for! If you have even the slightest interest in tanks or even MMOs, we're sure this game will be a hit for you!]

    About the game:
    World of Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, China, France and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy glorious Russian bias!

    A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces with heavy tanks, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers (artillery), each type of tank has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace.

    But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In the World of Tanks, it’s all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield (See thread title). Just add your favorite strategy to build your own iron empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!

    Q: So if I understand your previous answer correctly, there is no bonus for damaging a higher-tier opponent.

    However, many players (judging by the forums) have always been convinced that this bonus exists. Moreover, this belief was supported by several developer statements, including very recently in the thread concerning changes to the battle levels of the Type 59.

    I would like to be completely certain that I understood you correctly - the view that damaging an enemy tank that is of a higher tier than yours results in more credits is incorrect. Thank you.

    A: For a while, we ourselves were convinced that the bonus exists.

    Turns out, during the balancing of the in-game economy, the bonus was removed. It just slipped our minds.

    So damaging a higher-tier tank does not earn more credits.

    To continue from the last thread;

    The T82 is probably also basically impossible to circle with its speed.
    there's never a reason to circle a T82.

    I think I timed it at 4 minutes in my type 59, no idea if it varies.

    Edited:

    But really if you only use it when you need to (climbing hills basically) and remember to turn it off when you don't, I find it's rarely a problem.

    Every engine has a certain amount of hitpoints. When you enable RSG hitpoints will go down with 1 per second. Some tanks (like the T54) can keep RSG enabled for almost the entire match (I thought it was like 12 minutes for the T54) without getting engine damage.

    Thats how it works iirc, there was some thread about it on the forums a while ago.

    Today, while i enjoyed watching my lorraine take control of itself because of lag and ramming aimlessly into unsuspecting friendly tanks, i had a vision, what if wargaymen would spend their money on improved servers instead of the gallons of vodka that fuel their needs to nerf tanks which their brain-dead fanbase find to hard to fight back at, even if they have 40mm of frontal armor, at tier 8.

    I'm wondering if I should use my 30k free XP to skip the AMX40 and have half progress on the 12t to the 13 75

    rather than use it for the T20 grind; (which I'm halfway to the Pershing on) as I actually DO enjoy the T20 grind as of late, and I can always grind on my fun tanks that give me free XP.

    Tank goodness a new thread.

    By the way, T-34 or T-34-85? I'm fine with both hit and run and lining up a shot, but I prefer the latter. Which tank is pretty good and won't be screwed over by matchmaking as much?

    both of them get screwed my MM, but the 34-85 has the d10t which is decent for sniping
    t-34/57 is more of a scouty medium

    Both are great tanks, but if you're more into sniping you should go German.
