After a slow start, FLEX are having fun.

 

How about you?

 

I thought I'd share an interesting replay from last night. There are some interesting strats out there.

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

Going well, back home in KAC. One night reminded me of why I don't do these anymore.

staying up from 6pm to 1am+

getting 1-2 game per day due to not having reward tanks so you can't get into games as you do not fit into caller's strats.

very frustrating, giving up, waiting another year and maybe if I'm lucky, I'll finish the 279e missions to have a competitive tank.

"You'll get there in maybe 4 years" is not all that encouraging, lol.

Meanwhile, I feel like the STB has been just fine for me. I even shot up a bunch of Chiefs yesterday with regular AP! 

 

Granted these weren't battles against top 10 clans.

 

I SHOULD try to put in the effort to finish off my 260 missions though.

Was this the game where you hit 15 and penned 6 Fram?  :)

Yeah, but all but one of those non-pens were all in the mop up when we dogpiled and farmed that 279e up on the ridge road. I was trying to hit the leading edge of his UFP 'cause that's all I had - and THOSE shots were all with HEAT.

You simply have not invested enough time in TX. 160 battles is all you have got across your over 20 TX tanks. People you are competing for positions in battles have more than 160 battles in the tank they are selected for.

 

You have nine TX HTs, most played has 12 games. Only 1 has more than 4 games. You don't have the tech tree tank which is used in CW.

You have 12 TX MTs, most played has 20 games. Half you have only 1 game, and only 3 have more than 10.

You have 5 TX LTs, most played has 4 games. You don't have the EBR.

 

The expectation leading into the campaign (in 1AR) was that you needed at least 30 games a month in the tanks you wanted to be picked in.

 

Need to get the meta tech tree tanks, and then play a lot of battles in them to become proficient in them.

 

Or join a clan where not many people have reward tanks so you are a better chance. 

 

Its a two edged sword. Any clan which has good chances of getting a lot of tanks will need to win a lot of games. To win you need to take the best tanks available, which are reward tanks. If you don't have those tanks then you are not going to get selected.

 

Clearest path is to get an EBR105 or 277 and become a gun in them.

 

Or do what many have done and get the tank through an auction. That is a long term project however where you NEED to run a premium account, need to do the recruit grinds, need to to battle pass and need to play a lot of TX on HK so you get bonds from all TX battles.

3 days before the end of campaign.

 

Cut-off score surges 5000+ fame point per day.

 

Final cut-off-score estimated to be 43000-45000.

 

I got 36000 as of now.

 

It is like running for your very life from the capsized Poseidon

 

 

"Gonna go fast, gonna go high. Cause the cut-off score won't wait."

 

Thanks for the support of other mates in the clan that I am still in this race.

Don't forget the inevitable cheat clean out. 

 

Last campaign had the cut off reduced by nearly 4k after the clean out.

Joining just before and during campaign doesn't help either mate when we have players who've put in hard yards leading up etc. Campaigns are trash and when you've got the top clans cheating and getting away with it, makes it even harder
