Today, after a great supper with my family, I hopped into Blitz and decided to play in one of my favorite tanks, the T49 because DERP.


After some loses here, some good moments there...I was put into a Tier 8/9 match in the map "Dead Rail." Things got alittle rough at the start, our heavies and TDs encountered the opposition's heavies and TDs and we were dropping our tanks on the open hilly side of the map. Meanwhile, me and the Type 61 are flanking on the other side, near the rails. We managed to put in some couple shots from a distance. Afterwards, I moved alittle closer to the enemy tanks, slowly working my way through the opposite side of the open hills and put some shots in the rear. After destroying the enemy RHM, my fellow Type 61 engaged the enemy Lowe, who cared enough to turn around and decided to engage us. My Type 61 mate is now attacked by the Lowe. I had about a few seconds till my next HEAT shell loads so I decided to floor it and take a hit by the Lowe, who then fires an HE shell at me. As I drive by the Lowe's side, BOOM, the Lowe is destroyed and now the Lowe is not happy about me using HEAT on him/her. 


"Really Heat?" Said the Lowe or along those lines, IDK but this player wasn't happy the fact I used HEAT on them.


This is where I get frustrated and so cringed when I hear people's reaction when they get shot and/or killed by a T49, especially when I'm driving and playing one Lol. After hearing the Lowe's reaction, I cared enough to actually stop and have a chat to the Lowe. I will say, I was pissed off and was cursing at this player because I get this reaction from others so many times when driving the T49, but then again I have to remind myself that this is just a game and people just don't get the game yet as I do.


So for you all players, when you encounter a T49.....PLEASE! Remember that a T49's STANDARD AMMUNITION IS HEAT.


It doesn't have AP.....It doesn't have APCR.....It's doesn't have HESH.....The only ammunition it has is HEAT and HE. WHEN A T49 USES HE, HE/SHE IS BASICALLY USING PREMIUM AMMO. 


Just because some other tanks have HEAT as their premium ammo, doesn't mean a tank (LIKE THE T49) that has HEAT as their primary ammunition is also premium. Jesus, even the Bulldog uses APCR as primary ammo where as some other tanks it's used as premium ammo.


Funny enough, I went through this Lowe's record and stats. And then it started to make sense, because this player literally has Tier 1-2 tanks in their arsenal along with a Pz.S35, T7 Car, M3 Light, A-32, SU-100Y and their most used tank....Lowe...No wonder this player got unhappy the fact I used HEAT...


Here are the Pics for the battle match, the Lowe's stats and garage and the T49's ammunition options IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IT CAN'T HAVE HEAT AS PRIMARY AMMO: https://imgur.com/gallery/IzAblyW

A player stupid enough to gripe about the shell type shot at him is a player that you should simply ignore. 


No idea why this is worth getting worked up over.

That Lowe's a reroll if I've ever seen one, holy crap. Nobody spends fifty bucks worth of gold on tanks for a game they've hardly played.

I usually tell them to quit hiding behind so much armor, and I'll quite shooting heat at them.

If only that were true.


There was a Twitch streamer I noticed over a year ago who had loads of mid/high tier premiums and somewhere around 250 battles.  Suffice to say, she was terrible.

You know another tank that has HEAT as standard? Vindicator, and what's my gold round? HEAT. So I can spam gold without people noticing. (lol jk)
