Just got the M3 Lee and researched the gun. 

 

Now to play this tank I have heard so much about.

 

congrats? It takes like 40 battles in a tier 3 to get that? Sorry to sound rude but good luck! :D

Usually I am able to get a few battles in the morning right before  the reset (~10:30 PST) 

 

From there it is more of a when I have time. Which, sadly, is not very often.

At home - it is more of a spur of the moment deal.

I seriously hope the M3 Lee grind isn't too painful. I think I have up on it and used free XP to get past it.

Hey sly, I know it might be a bit before you get the Easy 8. But if you want some tips on how to be successful in it, read this guide: http://forum.wotblit...y/#entry1054705

 

its based of the Fury, but there both basically the same tank with a few tweaks here and there. Hope it helps! :)

 

good luck on the grinds!

If you're playing stock tanks you should go down the Fv 215b line or E50m line

Well - 14 battles later,

 

I am done with the M3 Lee. It wasn't as bad as some people said. I even managed to get an Ace Mastery Badge. Well time to look at that guide for the M4!

The m4, not the same since the derp nerf.  75mm is low DPM compared to competition.  So you can't be too aggressive.

I'm happy to hear it. The Lee is either a love it or hate it kind of tank. Enjoy the M4. It's not too bad.

Hey sly, I just got done fixing a few flaws in the Fury guide that I put together. Also added a new section on equipment, provisions, and consumables. So if you want to check that out here it is: http://forum.wotblit...t/#entry1054705

I think we should all band together and make CC_Sly a unicum, then maybe WG will let him balance tanks :)

Leader of Vort3x, My in-depth stats: http://wotbstars.com...&geo=NA&lng=eng

Goals: 60% wr without stat padding, researching all tier Xs (1 left!)

Heya Tankers!

 

Something I started back in late 2016 is something I am calling my Tank Checklist. Basically, I need to learn about the different lines and play styles that each nation and tank line give.

I can do this via research or get the stats - but for me, the best way to learn is to experience it.

 

I know the mechanical basics. So now I need to put them into practice. 

 

The plan is to go up each line until Tier VI and then play at least 50 battles in that Tier VI. That should not a difficult task, but it gives me a basic idea of some fundamentals of each line. I will be doing these solo so I can actually learn.

 

I'll keep my list here and update it as it goes on.

 

Feel free to jump in and give me advice or suggest the next line I should go down!

 

To-Do

U.S.A.

 

Germany

 

U.S.S.R.

 

U.K.

 

Japan

 

In-Progress

 

U.S.A. - Medium Tank - M4A3E8

  • Currently on: M4 Sherman

 

Done

 

U.S.A.

 

Germany

 

U.S.S.R.

 

U.K.

 

Japan

 

 

In retrospect, I wish I had followed this same logical path as you: getting familiar and comfortable playing tanks at each tier, rather than blowing up through the tiers as fast as I could during my first 2000 games or so, playing terribly all the way. I have a feeling my career WR would look a lot different.

 

Good on ya, CC_Sly...I think it is pretty cool to see Admin dudes getting their proverbial hands dirty; looking to get seriously proficient in the player's side of Blitz.

The M4 is amazing!!!! I wish I would've played it 2 years ago. ;) 

24 battles in with an 83.33% WR.... awesome. ;) You'll love it!

The derp can be somewhat descent for me, but RNG can really play havok though.

 

( if i could make the MT-25's autoloader work than anyone can make the M4 derp work )
