I usually use E4 as a more mobile HE-flinger. Like a Type 5 with speed and no super-HE.

Is credit making really a consideration when thinking about TX?

My ace game for the T28 Proto, this was before hp buff and capped roof too. Essentially the playstyle is to play a single lane and be a massive road block where you have hard cover. Getting into knife fights is generally lethal, though you will make them regret knifefighting (RIP Lorraine, you made the right play but T54E1 wasn't up to scratch).

The way that JP2 was moving... LOL! Is that a replay artefact, or was that an update issue from the game engine itself during live play as well?

Not sure what you mean.

 

The JP2 wasn't hiding its hull well (probably because the lane was crowded), but among the 3 my priority was the SuperP first (he's more aware of my weak spot and he's spamming sprem), then the KV-4 (lower hp after he ate 2 of my shots during the ) then lastly the Jp2.

It's the way it was moving sideways, and generally had very jerky movements. I was playing the video in fullscreen, and it was quite noticeable then.

That's the best bit. When they do get fed up of HE-spam, they'd move out of their position. Anticipate when they'd get out of position, and smack them with AP.

 

Or when I play, I just simply don't care about the credit. HE is cheaper than the ASIAn *standard* ammo (fkn ASIA goldspam server) and always does damage anyway, so for clean mindless fun HE will make the best credits of the 3 ammo choices. If you do start thinking, start mixing up your ammo.

2nd line HT. Try to be hull down and and limit your hull exposure as much as possible. The gun is made for trading with it's huge alpha, but you absolutely need to go with the train because a solo T30 is food due to it's long reload.

 

Sometimes you can bully as a top-tier, but this can be dangerous and you need experience to know when you can get away with it. The T30 can have a real psychological impact on an enemy team in a brawl, when they see one of their guys poke and get blasted for 800, so exploiting that is key to bullying - but again, you need to be with allies (who will HOPEFULLY take advantage of the enemy tank players who just filled their pants).

 

Oh and needless to say, stay arty safe. No roof armour, big engine deck, low HP, and a gun which is a huge threat means you're a priority target.

Finally marked the T30 after 300+ games..., it is so hard to get used to this tank, at least for me...

 http://wotreplays.eu...inberg-tcyh-t30

 

I must say I really hate semi derp gun with low shell velocity, the T28 prot has close to 1000 m/s while the T30 has only 870 m/s. It truly makes the gun more inaccurate and miss a lot more especially when u have to lead more.

Apart from that, this tank is also too slow to chase after damage. Being a 2-line HT supporting tank, while you go with a majority of your team, sometimes they just clean up things too quickly, or you found yourself stuck into a stalemate with hulldown tanks. BTW, HE is always preferable for low hp/hulldown tank, my loadout is 10 APCR and 10 HE, the rest is AP.

With the T30, you have to be more careful with your positioning, cuz you are too slow to relocate and you dont have the dpm. Don't be greedy, always look around to see if the enemy has a shot on you or not before you peek with your gigantic turret. If you know your team is overwhelming the enemy, stop pushing with them and find a good position to punish enemy coming from another flank.

Pound for Pound the E4 is a shocking tank - stop after the T30
