Where I’m at with World of Tanks
I have reached a bit of a milestone breaking the 1000 games point. I’m still struggling though, as much as one does struggle while having fun, with narrowing down the two tank classes I want to stick with. So far I have managed to eliminate exactly none of them. I have the best win ratio with my M7 Priest SPG, but it’s my oldest tank. Here’s the new ones.
Hellcat Tank Destroyer
By far the best looking tank I have played so far, it is also one of the fastest in the game. I sank into the 30s for win ratio, but after upgrading the gun a couple tiers I have pulled myself up to 49%. I have the highest hit ratio (accuracy) and win ratio with this tank. I’m having fun, and considering pressing with the line. What I really want to see is what the next gun upgrade is like. I expect great things.
The M7 Light Tank
I have upgraded this tank all the way. The T-21 light tank is next. This has been the hardest tank to wrap my head around. It’s meant to be a scout, but I just can’t seem to dodge the heavy hitters. Revealing enemies is blissfully rewarding when, safely around the corner, you can hear the artillery pounding them into oblivion. Unfortunately I rarely live that long.
Sherman “Jumbo” M4A3E2
I have dug myself a trench with this tank, sinking into the mid 30s for win ratio. Losing that much just plain sucks. I have upgraded this tank all the way, and am trying out the faster shooting gun. Unfortunately I have only made my choice more difficult. This tank plays like a heavy tank, but it’s actually a medium tank. So do I like/hate the heavy part or the medium part? I’m betting on the heavy, so my plan is to try the T29 next.
Still Some Learning Left
I’ve joined a clan called the Blue Angels Squadron [BAS]. I joined because I thought they used Mumble, which is unusual for a World of Tanks clan. Everyone uses Teamspeak 3 or Raidcall. I’ve never even heard of Raidcall. Turns out they all have Mumble, but don’t actually use it. Several of their members and I have used the in game voice chat, and its helped me out quite a bit. They’ve answered some questions I had about the game, and so far it’s been interesting. Until my other guild decides they want to play World of Tanks, things could stay interesting for a while.
