    We are?
    I can't guarantee I'll make it. Apologize to the guys for me if necessary.

    As an aside, T-44 is not just getting the LB-1, which was insane enough. It's also getting another engine. O_O Seriously, I already love that tank. More firepower and maneuverability? Seriously now, I will HAPPILY rape Type 59s at will if that's what they're going for.

    Doesn't surprise me. As it stands, even fully-upgraded T-44s with the long-85/100 mm are easy prey for Type 59s (I know I love going after them). Especially with the ammo racking issue. Add to the fact that you're going to make more money in the later no matter what, and they have to add further incentive, I say, especially if you'r entering the cash-strapped area of Tier 8s, 9s, and 10s for the first time, and don't have anything to fall back on (I know I was this way not long ago).

    EDIT: My premium will be out by tomorrow--probably for better, I think I'm better off leaving the game for a while. My performance has just gone to shit the last month--four T-54 losses in a row, followed by 3 the next week, which I apparently I'm not recovering from no matter how many battles I fight in it. Add to that generally mediocre performance in everything else, and I can't be bothered to grind with the Ferdinand anymore.

    We won the first round with three wins and a draw. We fought a team that was sub-optimal with two selections, though, and they basically gave away the second game with a terrible comp.

    If it isn't a trade secret, I would be curious to know what team make up will look like.
    I expect to see a lot of pimped out PzIV's and T-50's

    More like KV's and t50s Tier 5 remember :), Our first opponent had a PIV, nice and accurate but KV's can pretty much two shot it and the T50 can penetrate it. T50s and the enemies lepords cannot penetrate a KV unless they're shooting at the rear turret door.

    I would have thought that the KV might be too slow, and that you could just bugger off, until you got help.
    My PzIV has 100% camo and binos, so I usually kill the KV before it even sees me.

    How about arty? a single well hidden su-26 could be a game changer.

    Good Job so far, keep it up

    Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position
    Such a heavy burden now to be the one

    Arty does not cause enough damage to Kv's, Not in 5vs 5 with things like lepords and t50s running around. We tested with M37's that cause more damage than Su-26 and it was just not effective enough.

    A PIV with camo and binos is no good versus KV bushed up with t50s and SPG spotting our last match proved a PIV was just not survivable against a wall of KV's and scouts.

    PIV at best is 390hp vurses KV guns that hit for 300 or 700. It is not even close.

    Yeah, I logged in an hour ago and noticed you guys won. I'm glad it's going alright.
    I'm still sorry I've been pretty much out and out useless/unreliable, but ... yeah, I really wasn't expecting to get hit with the workload we got when I agreed.

    As an aside, played a game with my IS where I didn't fire a single shot and just spotted 5-6 tanks. Somehow that earned me 4k XP with the 5x bonus ... I live longer, spot more guys, and get some kills in my T-44, which yields 3200 XP. God damn it I never understand the maths in this game ...

    Here's our first match from round 2 of the November Challenge. Take a peek if you're interested, and feel free to ask any questions about it. Maybe we did something cool you didn't know about or something.
    Will be put up after our tourney is over.

    This tourney sounds like it suits you guys a lot better; I think you guys have a great chance of winning it.

    I've been away from this game for a while and I've gone back to doing dailies on a few tanks most days. It's not like I was any good before, but I'm terrible at this game now. I just feel like I'm getting rocked way more than before.

    Actually looking at the bracket, only 1 team will have a bye. Broken coding and all that.

    Gold ammo totally worth it for actually penetrating at 450 metres plus. It does make the non penetrating hits more galling though.

    So it's been almost 3 months since our last patch, and the biggest part of the 7.0 patch has been pushed back until the 7.1 patch. French tanks won't be introduced until the end of 2011. What are these guys doing?

    I dunno. If they do have it out by the end of 2011 we're still only waiting another couple of weeks. I don't mind this, honestly. Not playing with premium and trying to improve my T-54 has pretty much left me hovering at exactly 450k credits for the last 2 weeks. It's kind of brutal how much I need money compared to how fast I can accumulate it ... That said, when my Christmas vacation from work rolls around I can probably pick up a week of premium and really go at it. Hence, I don't mind waiting a bit, but I could see where others would care more.

    [Edit]
    I also just checked the tournament bracket for the first time. I can't believe we'd be playing the Cazadores again if we win the next round. At least it would be the semi-final fight.

    I was reading up on the T30 change and the people they had talking about were all "It's a lot like the IS-7!" but I think with less armor. I kinda shut my mind off after reading that.

  • A duck!A duck! Moderator, ClubPA mod
    Another win! Next round is assured to be against a good team, though.

    Oh we were pancaking for a moment when only three of us were online. Luckily Mac turned up before I unveiled my loltractor plan of victory.

    The we just really rolled them. Expect as duck said that the next bunch of teams are much stronger, the next match is a team that knocked us off the last tourney.

    No, the team we face next is the team that came in second place during the IGN Prime tourney. The team that knocked us out last tourney would be re-matched if we advance to the next round, and they placed third in the IGN Prime tourney. Friday and Sunday should be really fun! We really need to bring our A game for the rest of our matches
