Please ask constructive questions and make sure your question was asked previously, it will save yours and my time.

 

You can ask my opinion on certain tanks, what loadout I use, anything related to WoT is accepted. But remember: use common sense and decent grammar.

What's up concep, I just recently bought/started to grind the T32  and I know it's  a very we'll balanced tank on PC., do you think it keeps the same reputation as it has on PC or does it suffer a bit with the blitz format?

I has been my contention since playing WoT PC and now Blitz that the rush to tier IX and X is drivien by the hope that 'the better my tank the better my play'. I have have seen in both platforms that not enough time is spent in the VII and VIII ranks learning the different lines and the characteristics of tanks of the four countries we have in Blitz. 

 

Question: In a perfect world, if someone was starting the game today, was patient and wanted to really learn the game well what would you recommend their path look like? Any specific tanks to pursue, 'time in tier', tactics to learn, video's to watch or anything else they might want to consider as they launch their carrier in Blitz?

What are your ideal "end-game" stats? For example: 2800 overall damage, 75% win rate... I know for a fact that stats only can be increased SO far before just being prevented from moving up because of a massive number of battles.

 

Is Blitz losing its sense of entertainment compared to before?

What is the best upgrade order for the Tiger II? I have about 20k to go on the Tiger I and am wondering if I should go guns first or turret first.

 

Also, how does the Tiger II play compared to the Tiger I? The same support heavy/oversized medium type?

Since I'm not going to see the Leopard1 in blitz anytime soon and I enjoy pc wot, I just recently got my self a decent gaming pc so I have a question about the Leopard1 line. Would the grind be easier going down the line's "main" tanks or should I branch off into the german lights and branch back in to the original line at tier 7? Which way would be the "easier" grind in your opinion ? Thanks.

I constantly go loss streaks. I lost .2% of my WR and have been stuck there for weeks.

 

My longest loss streak was probably 5-10 in the Caernarvon.

 

I usually stop playing or platoon to overcome. Platooning is a great way to win more.

I think it does better on Blitz. It's a very, very good tank. The armor is great and the gun is fantastic, especially when firing APCR. The turret is one of the strongest in the game.

The IS-7 line is the best beginner line, imo. Playing these tanks really help with the basics of tanking. The best tactic to learn would probably be sidescraping, this is one of the best things a beginner can learn.

 

Some good YouTubers are Jingles, QuickBaby, and I think I'm forgetting someone but you could probably find them via the previous two channels.

I try for 3500 damage per battle in each Tier X and to win as much as possible. If winning means running from the fight temporarily, sobeit. I play to win, not to be fair.

 

And yeah, Blitz is slowly losing entertainment value compared to release.

I got 100% crew right away. I also only needed to get the 2nd turret because I had the 122mm M52 from the IS-8. Make sure you get 100% crew on any tier 8+ if you don't want to pull your hair out.

This will be my same question. My WR is over 50% I still need Tracks, Engine and the Last gun. I pushing for Gun first...Is this the right way?

 

Ps. Nice meeting you on the Battlefield this morning.

Since your hit rate is low, start from learning how to aim.

Yes, the gun and turret are the first thing you should get. The stock turret is awful, the second turret is godly. When you're hull down, you're harder to pen than a T32.

I can't really tell you exactly how to get your WR above 55%, I can tell you that you shouldn't artificially pad your WR by seal clubbing. Try changing your playstyle. If you play aggressive, play more conservative. If you play a little too conservative, play a bit more aggressive.

Don't frontline it. That's the best piece of advice for that tank. Frontlining that tank is like the kiss of death. Make sure you carry a decent amount of APCR because you need to make your shots count because of your lack of armor.

That's like asking what's better: Corn or Candy? They're two different types of vehicles with two different playstyles. I enjoy both tanks equally because the E3 disappoints me with the lack of snapshotting capability which is what the E5 does NOT lack but the E5 lacks alpha where the E3 does not.

The Leopard 1 is coming to Blitz in 1.9 or 1.10. And I think Zepherex can't answer that better than I can, farthest up the Leo 1 line for me is the Tier 6.

Get the turret right away. The stock turret is just plain awful.

 

I've never heard of the Tiger 1 or 2 being an oversized medium. They're heavies and should not be played like mediums. The Tiger I has a high RoF with the top gun while the Tiger II, while having decent APCR pen and accuracy, loses the RoF advantage with the top 105mm. The Tiger II is a decent sidescraping tank but the turret is butter. Play it like a heavy but don't push on your own, that's a good way to get knocked out.

 

I would also recommend fully upgrading the Tiger II before moving to the E75, especially in the gun category because I don't think you want to play with 200mm of pen on a Tier IX heavy, especially with that stock turret.

 

P.S. Watch out for HESH because the whole E100 line, excluding the E100, gets chewed up by HESH.

Heya concep got a few quick questions:

 

1) What is your best credit-grinding tank?

2) Do you know Jingles and if so, are you a TOG II lover?

3) If you had to choose, what would be your choice: a heavy tank or a tank destroyer? I am quizzical on which to really grind for.

 

Thanks a bunch man, Shield380
