So last night, this happened:

 

Spoiler

 

The game lasted 2:21. I had barely gotten my FV215b over to the railroad tracks and found targets when it ended. You put your Leopard 1 immediately in the face of basically the whole red team. From the mini-map and my own sight of you at the end, I saw you were doing your fighting within 50m.

 

GG.

 

My question: Everybody I know says the Leopard 1 is a sniper. The Bushka video, he drives maybe 2km each match, keeping to the edges and flanks, relocating huge distances just to take 1 or two shots. You drove it like a T-62a. Was that a normal Leopard game for you? Did you see something in the teams or map that told you to get up in their faces?

Yeah, that's how I normally play the Leo. Super aggressively and right up in their face. I'll sometimes play it like a sniper but very rarely because I love to be up in people's faces.

do you have any gameplay vids of the leo cause i would love to see how you play the leo aggressively... its a very tricky and hard tank to master.

Concep:

As a top player, do you feel that medium tanks are the "end all be all" for the advanced player?  I know that all different tank types have use, but do you feel that the best players prefer mediums because of their flexibility and ability to abuse many strengths?  Your thoughts?

 

Thanks,

R2

 

Absolutely. I know I do and I know many other good players do, not all, though. Some people just prefer to have that armor and reduced speed to keep them out of danger because they feel they play too aggressively and don't want to get annihilated.

How do you think the centurion ax10 will affect the stb 1 since it will be pretty similar except for probably being much more accurate with a better rof but with less turret armor.

Depends what tank I'm in. If I'm in a team dependent/no armor tank, I follow them. If I'm in, say, Russian meds, I'll do my own thing until I either die or my team finds the enemies.

I guess I missed this question way back, sorry lol.

 

It all depends on how they nerf/buff the Action X in comparison to the STB. PC and Blitz don't always have the same strengths and weaknesses, as shown by the STB's lack of DPM.

Hi Concep,


 

Why the name change again?  I know why it changed the first time to USCUM, but why the change from NE this time?


 


 

Just curious.

People were whining about the name. I might keep this name I might not. We all just want the KRIEG name back.

If you could drive any 5 tanks, and you had unlimited credits and all of the tanks unlocked, which five would you drive?

 

And on the flipside, which 5 tanks would you never drive (unless you had to grind through them).

 

Thanks!-Awesomeforwardguy1

Hey thanks for continuing this

Having played a fair amount of the t-54 and the obj 140 (and doing well in them,) I plan on going down the leopard line next. But being a player who has only experienced the face to face brawling aspect of everyday life of a Russian medium, do you have any suggestions for me as to how to play the Leos, and how I can adjust my mindset of a Russian medium to paper medium?

 

Thanks a bunch!


I suck.

Gonna add the Type 62 because it fits too.

Speed, speed, speed. Never stop moving and if you do, don't do it for more than 1-2 seconds, especially in the face of the enemy. Constantly relocate and when not relocating, constantly stay behind cover.

Concep,
Thanks for being such a positive and influential player to the Blitz community and giving your time to contribute as you do. Two questions:

1.) Do you bother to give orders/ suggestions at the beginning of battles ("all desert side" etc.)? If not, why?

2.) My success when solo seems to produce a bit more losses than wins. I try to play conservatively but- if it is a loss- it seems to be a toss up between me getting killed early (despite trying to play conservatively and/or cautiously) or either being last or close to the last to die. I enjoy more success (and have more fun) platooning, so my platoon rate is very high. Being in such a large clan with a bunch of great tankers also makes it easy to platoon.  I know some tankers believe one's skill is best measured by how much (and how successful they are) soloing...

 

A.) Do you believe one's solo success is the purest measure of one's skill in Blitz?

 

B.) How much do you solo versus platoon?

 

C.) Is a high platoon rate necessasrily a bad thing? Thanks and o7

Not everyone can be a unicom in this game. That being said, be a help to your team as best you can. If you're not an asset, then you're a liability.

1. All the time unless I'm too lazy or don't care enough.

 

2A. For the most part, yes. But platooning with people who fit your playstyle less than others is just like playing solo.

 

2B. Generally 50/50.

 

2C. Depends how much damage you put out. It definitely shows on your stats when you have a 60%+ WR in a Tier 8 but less than 1500 DPG.

Your thoughts on FV215b as compared to E5? And whether or not the FV215b is viable at Tier X.
