You got it brother!  The Fury was my very first premium tank, love it still!  The Victory of course one of my absolute favourites still run that all the time.  The KV-13 I've only run a bit but still happy to help out with.  Basically IMO the KV-13 is a T-43 (same gun) that's gone to the gym for 6 months and come back beefed up with roid rage lol.  A little slower then the T-43 but better armor and more bouncy.

 

Hit me up if you see me online and I'll make myself available or send me a PM and we can schedule a specific time.  Hopefully we'll be able to record the session also, I'm just in the process of getting the you tube channel up and running.

 

Stay tuned for Lokeen's Medium Tank Academy videos and video bloopers coming soon! :)

Big shout out to usrbinperl. Had a ton of fun tanking this evening working on some T-44 goodness :). This guy has great skills and is sure to make you laugh! Hit up usrbinperl if you're looking for a solid guy to platoon with!

 

Looking forward to next time!

Had a great time tooning with you the other day Lokeen. I wanted to also say that after listening to episode 23, I'd like to mention how underrated other equipment is as well! While the camo net is a wonderful thing, on my E50 and when I get the E50m, I have noticed a HUGE difference is manuverability by using rammer, vstab and suspension., The suspension may not show much in stat increases, but I know for a fact it helps that tank specifically in terms of fixing its sluggishness.

 

Suspension adds to soft stats, and people would be surprised of the difference if they would just try it. As a medium driver, it really helps my use of single repair and multi as I'm tracked WAY LESS than normal, especially with ramming other tanks. On my E50, i'm using chocolate, and double repair. Does wonders. Give it a shot sometime!

 

happy tanking

Lokeen was the first guy I tooned with when I came to Triarii.  I SUCKED at mediums.  I'm still not great, but Loke has helped quite a bit with my medium play.  Witness my Comet at a lowly 47.33% win rate, pre-Lokeen, vs my T-44 at 52.69% (and climbing) post-Lokeen.

Lokeen! I just saw this man......your perfect for it!

 

I'm just going to make my plug for Lokeen....he taught me a TON about driving mediums.....and was patient all the way....even when he died because I was too close behind him or doing something bonehead.

 

I have rarely seen a player in a medium have such an impact in a battle...but Lokeen does. And hes fun. Patient. Etc.......

Wow man great ideas!  I have to be honest I've never even looked at suspension as something worth bothering with.  I'm gonna look into this for sure!  Keep these awesome suggestions coming, thanks!

Ah thanks man I have always enjoyed our time platooning whether on TS3 or silent.  You're a hell of a platoon mate brother and I'm always happy to have you at my side! :)

Sounds great lokeen! Btw I swapped suspension for vents. I like suspension alot, but it's hard to part with vents. Btw I started using auto fire, multi, and chocolate on my e50. Not bad for now until the e50m. The frontal fires happen often. I like bushkas idea of speed boost over chocolate, but think it is more efficient in the long run to use chocolate. What do you think?

To be honest I've never been a fan of speed boost.  I know all the arguments for it and I'm certainly not trying to convince anyone one way or the other, everyone finds something a little different that works for them, it's just not for me :)

 

I just feel that for the amount of boost you get it's not more of a benefit than say rations, and extra repair kit or adrenaline.  I've driven right beside platoon mates in the same tank while they punch their speed boost and I run regular and they really don't pull ahead of me much at all.  If you're running a speed boost for a particular situation, i.e. to get up the back hill on mines, I have three reasons why I don't bother;

 

1. Every time you don't get that map and/or spawn on the south side of the map that equipment slot is wasted or could have been better utilized with something else.

2. Most tanks that can pull those sneaky moves don't actually NEED the boost to do it. i.e. I drive up the back side of mines in my Leopard 1 with no boost and no issues.

3. To speak to shooting up the back side of mines specifically, sure it's cool but IMO tactically not really the best move.  More often than not you're up there first, by yourself, facing all the reds mediums and you're up the hill so fast your team has NO chance to support you.  We all know how well that turns out. LOL 

 

So in summary my opinion is chocolate (rations) over speed boost FTW!!!  

 

Hope that helps. :teethhappy:

Hey Lokeen...how about puttin' in a good word for me with Triarii?  Been sitting on pins and needles waiting for my app to be approved.  Don't want to be on the outside looking in when Clan Wars hit.
