Another 1st battle, this time in BDR heavy. A bounce or two short.

Nice tank, fast for a heavy, reload time feels a bit like KV-2, lol. But damage is decent.

Considering you’ve never played it before, that is a great first run. The BDR is my favourite tank at Tier 5. So much so, I enriched it and it’s earning potential is up to and over 70k. The gun surprises a lot of people because of its pen and extra alpha. And it’s armour can be trollish if you angle it correctly which you were doing quite well against multiple enemy, attacking from different angles. Your team, in comparison, did a "great job" of dying all around you. 

 

The only primary weakness on it is its height and “chapeaux" hat-like top. There will be times when you’ll think you’re completely behind cover but your top will be slightly sticking out up top, so it’s always good to be moving somewhat so the enemy can’t target it easily. It’s one reason why I try to avoid ridge lines with it, unless there is tall hard cover nearby.

I HATED this thing when i had to grind it a year ago, i just could not for the life of me make this tank work.

So basically I legit don't ever look at the forum anymore because I mainly look at it during school. My school banned the site you go to log in and I couldn't post, and I'd rather devote my time when on my home computer to playing the game. So yeah basically why I vanished from the forum. Its not like I posted a lot anyways lol 

my crappy stats= here

and for the life of me I cant find a pfp that is small, this one is getting old

Thanks! And yes, I remember some BDR driving me crazy while I was aiming at its thingy mingy at the top. So now I have an opportunity to do the same, lol.
