As mentioned in boomdoggers renewed toon post. I would like to help people learn in low tiers once chat is fixed.

 

EDIT: chat might be fixed with latest patch. Spinning 5 still making me nervous. But it’s always been slow for me when opening up clan info screen. Maybe I just have spinning 5 ptsd

I haven't had any issues since the patch I installed this morning -- well other than three games with RIDONKULOUS (it's worse than ridiculous) Packet loss over 15%.

   Frustrating me further was PingPlotter saying I should be rocking 55 Ping with no loss - and I am sitting in 175 ping with 15%+ packet loss in game.

 

However this afternoon the issues had gone away - any a very usable 75-125 ping.

hmmmm...I had hoped. I had terrible sudden ping spikes yesterday at 5 am eastern. Next I battled was this am after the patch. Seemed ok. I’m worried about what you’re saying. Game fixed but the stupid internet problem remains? I see the spinning 5 in my dreams.

I did not get the spinning 5 of Doom after the patch.

  The lag issues appear to be pre WG Server - for me between the Reston VA 'hub' - and before Chicago.

I am not sure who to scream and yell at - but my main issues seem to be these 5-6 new hops that got added in between.

 

Pre 6.0 I used to go Reston -> Blitz Chicago Server.  via Comcast IBone.

 

Now I get these irrational atlas.cogento.com hops.

http://www.cogentco....orkmap_page.jpg

It seems like WG changed service providers from their Hubs - so now I go from Reston/Herndon VA to DC, to Pittsburg, to Cleveland, to Toledo, to Chicago...

 

Anyway for a good laugh -- look at their advertised performance

In other news: I’m not terribly fond of the Sherman firefly. Anyone else with me? Who’s got some tips?

It’s a TD...

    Honestly I didn’t do too bad in it running it as a second line med.  

 The key with it is to keep the gun in the game and knowing you aren’t a real Sherman as the gun depression and turret armor isn’t Sherman’eske.  

 

Plays similar to the Challenge® which now follows - except the Challenge® is more mobile and has better gun depression - but instead this is a TD that is a Second/Third Line med (which sadly needs to front line a lot due to teams).

lol, thanks. 2nd/3rd line that needs to be on frontline due to teams 

. I’m doing slightly above my average in it. I’m playing it as you describe...didn’t consider it a td though. Just not in love. I’ll buckle down. About to finish Martin Doggers new vid

The main problem with the firefly is that it's a worthless POS.  I found success playing well back, hull down.  And hated it.
