AMX30 for me :great:

 


Shad0: You know that time when there was a King Tiger on 2 HP and another King Tiger on Full life ? And the King Tiger rammed uphill in slow motion, for 1 HP and then kept fail ramming until he was killed by the a 1 Hit point tank. Was the stupidest tank ever
Shad0: You are now that Noob KingTiger
Me: D:

50 wins without being awful? Sounds like one of my alts may be getting a whirl on a CDC for a few days.

You and me both Neokai. I'm surprised they have 30% off the french 1375 straight after the 30% 1375 which i got so there's no way i can get the 1390 for the 2 days its running since i do daily doubles with 50 other tanks.

 

Was also holding out for 50% off crew change for the British tier 9 arty that i waited 2 weeks to get in that long fortnight deal thinking surely there'd be 50% crew retraining near the end but no. Therefore, only my gunner is retrained so my accuracy better but reload time is still slow. 

 

Ready to buy t95, su101, charioteer, foch155, stb, jagpanzer e100.

If the garage slots and barracks specials work - then I am buying gold tonight and spending up.  Last special -- the 50% off of consumables was a farce with it not working, then being told that to wait because it was a high priority, then not being able to get them and finding out too late that you had to uninstall aslains, then reinstall wot.  Damn that wasted my time and put a bad taste in my mouth.  Please make these specials real and not turn a positive into a negative again.  I want my garage slots and bunks!!!!!

Issue was fixed in the hotpatch by the 2nd day iirc. Mods were the cause of subsequent problems after that - there was a thread that taught people how to hotfix the issue in the forums (something to do with preferences.xml).

 

Anyway the sale is in 2 hr from now iirc, please post any issues you find and we will let the devs know.

2 hours or so from now - I am spending up!  The garage slots are timely considering the special on the French line.  Hopefully the next special is on permanent camo and training.

i'm just going to focus mostly on grinding up my AMX 13 75 to unlock the AMX 13 90. getting ever closer and the xp boost is great too. also starting to appreciate the AMX 13 75 more and more. i don't think i'll make it in time to grind and unlock the AMX 30, but i'll take my time getting there i guess.

 

now just waiting to see what the next special/focus is, though i'm pretty sure it won't be the Brit SPG and German E-100 line for awhile

my shopping list:

T-44, Conqueror, IS-8, Challenger


Owned Tier 10s: Obj 907, IS-7, Obj 140, M60, M48A5 Patton, STB-1, WZ-111 5A, 113, Centurion Action X, Super Conqueror, Badger

Guess with penetration nerf and considering that this tank doesn't even depend on armour in the 1st place, guess more ppl will go for other more armoured Mt instead or leopard, don't see how this tank differentiates / better than other mt

It's got better gun dep compared to Leo1 iirc. Most players I speak with are more interested in the tier 9 though as it's faster than a Type 61 with equivalent gun dep.

Nope, both amx 30 have 8deg. Leo1 has 9, but if you are speaking about Leo pta then only 6. My point is why Leo aiming/dispersion is buffed to compensate for the pen nerf,while amx30 is slapped with just the pen nerf. I understand the tier 9 is slightly op (just grinded the top gun and intending to keep for random or complete my personal missions), but amx30 is just becoming obselete (despite being a new tank)

*shrug* The tier X tank was flagged as being subpar by reviewers during supertest, not because it's bad (it's a buffed AMX 30), but because the existing mediums already cover all the known "medium-ishly" attributes. It just doesn't stand out for any particular attribute.

Well I assume the end product of this line is here just for historical sake and not because it has a particular characteristic that is worth grinding for... so much for evolution of tanks lol
