Cheers Mash! Yeah, shame you haven't played it. Perhaps you could repurchase some tier X? I saw a fair number of TD's in RB...Usually 2-3 per team, sometimes even more, but Death Stars and Waffles mostly, although I haven't seen that they have any advantage in this type of matches. Smaller teams, scouts are rare and pace is faster than usual. Only on one occasion there was arty in teams and I had the honor to erase it. My E100 performed fairly well even against Deathstars and Waffles...Although, I must admit those T57's are deadly especially if there is more than one in team.

 

Maybe if i sold my T-10, Object 416 etc but they were more important at the time as i want the T-10 (got but need to keep), Object 430, Object 263 (least important in the list) and 60k on the IS for the IS-M, we may not follow the 9.22 Server on PC however if we do i want to be prepared. Without the 9.22 influence, i wouldn't have repurchased the IS-3 and potentially the A-44 as well as i could do T-43 to the Object 140 which was my goal before 9.22 happened. Tier X for me while it's powerful didn't seem worth playing as without real cash (and a lot of it), the XP sticks to the vehicle and except tanks like E-100, Bat Chat, M48 Patton where it starts weak and gets stronger, theirs no value. For me that changed with this Ranked Battle (if it remains at Tier X that is) and probably the only time, i regretted not having an X but feel it's a worthy sacrifice for potential free tanks from 9.22.

 

I'm on Object 416 (stock), SU-101 (Stock but Sold), IS (Sold) and T-10 (IS-3 gun) at the moment :)

Grats! I've finished it two days ago, but I think mine is cursed, LOL! My record is 2-14 atm..Worst record of all tanks I got..:teethhappy:

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

I love Is-3, that's the best tier 8 heavy imo, Fatherland is not bad, very similar to IS-3, but I had a really bad serie with it..T-10 is great, but just unlocked top gun package, plays more like a medium, it's so fast for a heavy tank.

I saw you last night, we were on the same team couple of times in Silver League iirc..We've won some, lost some, GG!:great:

 

Awesome, maybe we'll run into each other a bit more tonight. Like I said I had some good games and others I just sat in disbelief afterward trying to figure out what I did and what to change. But man, I got chewed by 3 or 4 guys which got a bit under my skin. In the end I just changed my setting so only friends could send messages, this way those whackos can't get to me. :)

I'll second the matchmaking needed a little work. I'm in a match now (I died) that the line up is as follows:

My team: 2 E4's, an E3, an E5, an Object 140, my T-62A, and a Bat-Chat

The enemy team: a pair of E4's, a pair of Death Stars, a Jg. Pz. E100, a Type 5 and a Bat-Chat

 

That seems like a lot of big guns on one side to me. Add to that, this was on Port...made it not as fun as I would have liked.

Ikr, sometimes MM was really messed up. It's 7v7 match now and if you screw MM up, you have a huge unbalance. My example was three T57 heavies vs one on the green team, naturally we've lost, cause three T57 just yolo'ed and killed one IS7 and a Waffle with their first clips. Naturally we've lost that one. JadgPz E100 in my opinion was desicive weapon in many battles, cause with mainly slow heavy tanks and corridors, E100 Jgdpz just excels. Deathstars not so much, except in situations like yours, where you have two on one team and none on the other, plus in your example there is Jageroo combined with two Deathstars, so go figure..:amazed:

Cheers would have it now but Nephew stayed over yesterday so i'll grab it later :)

In Chinese TD line only iffy one so far is the 60G FT simply due to the size (not as big as SU-100 Y but reminds me of that), feels sluggish until you get the top engine then it's great, the WZ 131G FT when upgraded the tank traverse reminds me of the Hetzer where it's go fast sometimes, it's uncontrolable but good tank, Gun isn't great at snapshooting too but nice gun.

Just glad i made some progress on my Alt during String Theory :)

Hope in future it can be sorted by class. e.g. One team has 4 Heavies, One team has 4 TD's.

Example:

 

Team A
IS-3
KV-4

KV-85
T-150

Team B

T28
T28 Prototype

Hellcat
Jackson

New Team

Team A
IS-3
T28
KV-85
Hellcat


Team B
KV-4

T28 Prototype
Jackson
T-150

If many Platoons it would be harder of course.

In ranked battles platoons aren't allowed and that is fine, cause otherwise if they allow platooning on 7 vs 7 rosters, it would be ruined. Yes, your example is how it should be, except at tier X you have tanks with one-shot or near one-shot capability, so if you distribute them unevenly, the battle outcome may be predetermined. This was a battle roster from RB match maker I've played and there were three T57's vs one on my team. Even thou platoons aren't allowed, on small corridor maps three T57 carry a potential damage of close to 5k and if they manage to unload their clips and pen, you will lose one or two tanks on that first rush. Autoloaders concentrated can be devastating if you don't have equal number on your team to counter them. My E100 can shoot once and it will deal a decent dmg if I hit, but my reload is 14 sec, and during that time I'm at the mercy of fast autoloader who can stand there and aim at my weakspots.

True but mean MP, so many times i see Heavy vs TD and Heavy takes 80% of the map and most are usually platoon free and i think, put that Heavy there and this TD here for balance.

Yes, MM seems to be all over the board right now. Last night I loaded into a game to see 5 E-100's on the enemy team and 1 on our team. Granted they are not unbeatable but it takes time to chew them down and we didn't have the tanks to come remotely close to winning that one.
