Motherland with premium ammo can smoke anything in the game, it takes a lot of shots though. Go for a 183 if your looking for one shot success. If the 183 goes against your motherland just get close.

If you're not loading premium in your tier 8s in tier 10 matches you're doing it wrong.

 

Well, actually i'm still not loading premium and still ok, until certain tanks appear on my crosshair which usually needs 3 rounds out of 1 penetrating.

What i want to say is that you can life without using premium, the only problem is when certain high tier bullies appear and you don't have a repositioning way nor support at all. Which the last usually tends to happen more every day.

Garage: Too many tanks... Not enough time (nor motivation)

Ever thought that maybe if you penned the other 2 rounds, whether premium or not, then you might have a better chance to hold ground with your friendly tanks?  Instead, you put yourself and team members in a tougher spot by holding on to some belief that you'll become a unicum wannabe (whatever the crap that is).

I spam scout tanks with the desire of balancing the bully tanks.

Purple on the horizon, then.....the world is mine with Stewie packing his ray gun.

I've killed tier 10s in my fatherland. This is a tank which has apcr (usually premium ammo) for its stock ammo and gets heat for premium. The only tanks i have trouble with is the maus, which i have not penned head on.... everything else i can make regret deciding to treat me as an easy kill unless I'm outnumbered or one shotted/clipped.

I've also earned more silver in this per battle than i have I anything else i own with an average of about 60k and a high of over 130k after expenses

While I can certainly understand not wanting to overly use premium out of principle. don't let some false sense of pride handicap your potential. Just don't. It's like when someone thinks they're a big man for not wearing appropriate clothing in winter, and then they get a cold just like any other idiot. If something needs to be done, just do it, and don't be stubborn. In most tier VIII tanks it's highly appropriate to load premium rounds when fighting tier X tanks, just as it is for all tiers when facing tanks two tiers higher, depending on the tank you're shooting and your own gun of course.

While I know I can do some things in tier 10 matches I'd rather not deal with it, especially if it's a lot of 10s. from my past experiences with the fatherland in tier 10 I'd much rather go half-butt YOLO into the enemy and play something else rather than roll around doing nearly nothing for 5-10 minutes. I got silver to make!

Fatherland has so little ammo room. I'm guessing F the HE all together and hope I never need it to cap and add a couple more HEAT for when I get tier 10s.

the ammo surprisingly lasts as long as most of your shots count.

I load out 20/5/3

I just changed to 22/4/2. Hate spending got the HEAT considering the reason I play this for now is silver mining. Until the sale on the 27th, it's the best I got if top tier

I typically load 2-3 premium rounds starting around tier V for most tanks. These, however are purely for emergency use.  Premium rounds eat a lot of silver. For me its economic, not trying to impress any one.

I think most of us remember this stage of playing WoT all too well. No shame in getting frustrated, sir. In fact, you're handling it really well, compared to all the raging tin foil noobs we get a lot around here. Just keep noobing on and surely you will slowly feel the noob in you disappearing. 

 

You got a lot of sound advice here already. All I will add is you keep it up and in a years time you will be reading one of these thinking back to this post with a grin on your face. :great:

My Tiger II does great in Tier X. 

 

You'll just have to enhance your map knowledge and awareness, and don't be afraid to use some premium shells.

 

Don't rush into the battle. You don't have that much battles under your belt yet, in tier X you'll probably face more experienced players with their favorite tanks.

YES. Camp and snipe till your tens have actually done their work, then go in and finish off the red survivors they didn't. Don't try to go head to head with anyone higher tier than you, flank or snipe. If your teams tens and nines know what they are doing, you will see a time come when you can abandon your hiding hole and attack full on. This is ESPECIALLY true for lights. If your tens and nines don't know what they are doing, you will lose unless you can cap out.

Only [edited] camp. You want to go.in and scout for the big boys so they dont get smashed apart having to scout their own targets with big slow tanks!

Dont lie. In tier 10 he will face complete idiots who have paid their way to the top because their too stupid to get through 2,3,4,5,6,7,8 & 9. I see the dumbest, most unsupordinte gameplay when I clear the x2s off my 8s & up.

You just need to adjust your playstyle. You can't lead from the front as bottom tier you have to play a support role. Aim for tracks / weak spots. If your struggling to pen loads those cheeky premium rounds.

That't why I placed the "probably" in my statement.

 

You won't find 'complete idiots who have paid their way to the top' with a 3 marked E5 or Conqueror (I know this is a tier IX, but you get the idea).
