I will put Sabaton - Shiroyama on repeat and drive Japan to victory. :izmena:

My japanese Tiger and all my other japanese tanks are ready and waiting to dominate the battlefields.

 

 

 

Have fun, all you tankers of every nation:)

I want people to understand because I want to understand as well.

Yes, I am the one guy with a different opinion.

Don't believe my battle count. It is missing 12355 battles on PC(and not a single one will ever be added to that number again) and 852 battles on mobile.

Two nations that aren't in my garage. Fixed that with the AMX Chaffee. Serious little stinger. Question, though. Does anyone know if an American crew in the AMX Chaffee will count towards French completions? 

 

​It will count, I was scoring points for Germany with my Captured KV1, with a Russian crew in it. :harp: WG can't keep Russia out of this fight!

 

I am torn this weekend having just 8 French tanks, but all good to great, and 12 Japanese tanks. I went with Japan last year but I'm suspicious Japan might turn it around and pull off an upset this year. No Bat Chats or higher tier French either. Still on the fence about which Nation to choose...

My *cough* GERussiMAN *cough* crew counted in the Captured KV-1 so I’d assume so. 

 

​That's what I'm hoping. Got a 1 skill French crew in it now, that I could probably get to 3 skills before the match. But, I'd rather use my 9 skill American crew and turn this tank into an assassin. :)

I'd love to get the Senshi but I have more French tanks and have a few parked that I haven't achieved elite status for.  So, somewhat reluctantly, it'll be France for me.  Ultimately I think people will be getting a Hammer out of this competition, or silver for those of us who already own it.

Rewards system heavily promotes easy way out and choosing favorites over underdogs, at least on paper. This year tournament is driven towards German victory in Finals and Hammer as a prize, since rewards are for winning faction only. People who are limited with their time and can't play enough will choose favorite faction and make one completion, counting on vast majority of playerbase to do the push for them and add to the overall average to win the prize. I think it would be much better to have a prize for participation only, for example 3 days of Premium and 50k silver for all players with at least one completion, no matter winning or losing. Winners would get a medal and 3 days Op with 25% xp and silver bonus. That would make the outcome of matches more difficult to predict, since players would choose the faction they prefer, instead of one they think it will win for sure.

Also I'm quite sure that there are many players who only get to choose a faction and finish without any completions whatsoever, due to a lack of time or interest, I couldn't say what would be the reason. Question is how many players like this will play for faction of your choice, because that would have a huge impact on final result if you have a bunch of freeloaders choosing your faction.

I'd say it would be fair to have rewards for participation only (based on having at least one completion for any team), and to exclude people who get to choose the faction in match up, but fail to submit at least one completion.

That would add to suspense and uncertainty of the outcome and we would definitely get more competition out of it.


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

Several players mentioned that they would prefer the Japanese tank but will play the French because they believe they'll win.  I don't think it would be much of an upset if Japan won, and I believe it would help inspire players to play as Sweden vs. the US.  Therfore I'll be running my Type 4 heavy and Kaiju as much as possible.  I'm willing to risk 3 days of premium time if it gives the Czechs and Swedes hope in their matches.

It's actually the opposite (you can see my thread on this). The upset is if France wins. 

 

(That said, Ima play France because it's my favorite nation).

My 105 leFH18B2 is warming up = serious damage to slow heavy tanks.  Enjoy hiding behind rocks and buildings team Japan.  Hopefully between French lights buzzing around spotting and French arty tracking there should be a lot of completions.  My AMX 50 100 and B C 12t will be there for when I get bored tracking and destroying heavies with arty.  Does Japan have an answer for the Bat Chat line up and auto loaders?

So your german tank(leichte Feldhaubitze 18 B2 or leFH18B2) under french flag against my german tank(Tiger or HT No. VI) under japanese flag.:trollface:

 

The big HE guns can hurt Bat Chats badly and Japan has an autoloader as well. Even if it's just a single one.

I think it is pretty even.

If you're reffering to Chi-Ri and if you're counting on it to fill the roll of French autoloaders, than the outcome will be a disaster for Japan.

Warming up the Foch 155 and Lorraine 155 

I think Japan will rule the lower tiers (3 - 7) and France the higher tiers.

 

Really doesn't matter who wins, as I like both reward tanks, whoever wins I shall play in the finals.


Tier 10: Obj 263 + IS-7 + IS-4 + E50M + Jagdpz E100 + E100 + STB-1 + T57 + T110E3 + Foch 155 + TVP T50/51 + Rheinmetall Panzerwagen + 113

Tier 10 MoE: Obj 263 - IS7 - IS4 - E50M - Jagdpz E100 - T57 - Foch 155 
Working toward: Maus + WZ 113G FT :justwait:
