Tbh, I didn’t see many French vehicles in the lower-mid tiers. Say a few Pak 40s, ELCs and some ARL 44s but expected to see more. My S35 and Bathtub were often alone.

I'm amazed it was even close. I checked the top 5 on each side after every game and it was almost always France by a large margin. Once in a while I'd see some ganged up Japanese heavy tanks, but not often.

I am not surprised, I thought Japan will win. There were lots of French tanks Friday morning, but then OIs and other Japanese tanks ruled the score board that evening and on Saturday. Sunday was French again. This motivated me to do 8 completions (French.)

Given the current trend just pick the nation who's photo is on the right and you'll have chosen the winning nation.

Choose right can't go wrong!  So far so good!

During my limited playing time I saw quite a few Japanese at Tiers III - V, and on the red team they were often taking the top positions

You confirm what I have read.  Japanese on 3 to 5 and France 6 and above.  Not scientific at all but clearly what I could see in the battles I was involved in.

 

I take it WG does not release any of the metrics behind the overall score.....so will not know for sure.

Looks like wise advice for the next two rounds I would say.

Wow... Well I'm glad I went to 12 or 13 completions for France! :honoring: 

 

That's crazy to me that it was that close!  I played tiers 7 and up and all I saw was French domination. How did we end up with a lower average than UK? Deathstar? 

 

The fact that both matches were as close as they were is a testament to good foresight on WG's part. Good pairing!

Finished 3 completions for France yesterday. Of note, saw way more Japanese tanks yesterday than French ones.  This one will be close. 

 

You were right on the money.  I think this might be the closest historically that I can remember.  For those who worked hard to get 1 or 2 extra completions, thank you.  You made a difference.

 

Hopefully, the best players on this forum can come to an agreement on Freedom or Liberte, they are both worth fighting for.

You all realize that France won just because I finished that last completion..You're all welcome ..:trollface:

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.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25
