Got my BC-12T to nearly 92% running small fire, small med kit, and large repair.

 

Interested in when people run food for third marks?

Wouldn’t know .....sob....was trying to 3 mark my T1 heavy but it’s hard work, got up to 94% then back down again so team dependent. Full load of prem rounds, food. Put on the large kits for the passive bonuses, be aggressive but not crazy. I’m gonna try again when this op finishes as there’s too much yoloing good luck

Absolutely.   I run food on all light tanks, doesn't matter if I'm going for a 3rd mark or not.  Having that extra advantage on a light is a must.

 

With it being an auto loader I also ran full apcr, because getting to the end of the match and having 2 of each round isn't funny. 

 

Some players get annoyed by the silver loss, but it doesn't bother me.

I run food on all lights except the T-100. Food makes a huge difference on LTs.

I don't play anymore, just loiter around the forum from time to time.

Hi John, thanks for this. 

 

Silver loss doesnt bother me either, I run full APCR - I have to grind out all three tanks above this (~600,000 xp) so I knew I had to run this for a long time. First few games bounced a lot with AP so just loaded full skill.

Small fire? I only ever use autos. I never run food, but then I usually don't use much prammo either. Then again the only light I've 3 marked is the chaffee so probably better listening to someone that has bothered for lights.

If your running that close to a third mark then food may help. That slight boost to view range, Camo and other stats may just be enough to tip the balance.

 

Good Luck and Good Hunting, (unless I'm in your cross hairs, in which case I hope you burn in the lowest pit of damnation! ).

If you're stuck on that last 2% run food and premium ammo for a few games. I find it generally pushes you over that last hurdle.

Most wil usually run food when going for MOE's.  Like Arrowsmith mentioned above, some run food on certain tanks all the time.  I normally run Auto Fire Extinguisher for the passive buff, but if I'm going to run food on a tank, I'll usually swap out the extinguisher for the food.  I noticed on the TanksGG website, most of the time my Chance for Fire usually remains the same or only a little slightly higher but still acceptable when switching to food.  The effect it has on your other crew skills more than makes up for the slightly higher chance of fire.  Hope that helps.  Good luck.

No because i feel that foch's my matchmaking up.
I also feel my matchmaking is better when:
- low skill crew
- more standard shells vs premium shell loadout
- small repairs/medkits/etc

Im a tinfoilhat guy like that, but i just dont trust this company (i really, really dont) but they alone are responsible for ppl who think that way by their actions.

Good luck with getting that 3rd mark.

3 Marked tanks: Aufklärungspanzer Panther - Tiger 131 - M36 Jackson - Pz.V/IV "Rammpanzer"

I run food on all high tier lights. The issue I have had with the 12ton is too many top tier games. Just not enough hit points on the map to harvest. Bouncing between 91 and 94%.  I will have to load full APCR and give that a try.

I don't use food on any of my tanks, and I've two and three marked multiple. I used to use food on some of the big stick artillery, but that's a no no now.


What ever tactic you use is legit, but if the emey does it then its a cheap unfair OP noob tactic.

On all of mine it's been best crew for that nation, mostly premium ammo, large repair, large first aid and food. I only go all out like this once I'm above 91%

It gets hard after 92% - matchmaking seems to go to hell.

Food is a must for 3rd Mark grinds. Every little bit helps!

 

I don’t run food until I’m going for 3 marks (which I don’t do often). I’m cheap, but 3 MOEs aren’t meant to be earned for free.....it takes massive silver losses running all premium consumables and LOADS (if not all) of premium rounds! :coin:

I run food on certain tanks regardless of where I'm at with the damage standing. I've three marked a couple with food and a couple without food.

It can help but not always needed you just need to judge yourself when you need it.

No...I don't run food in the Sexton because that would be pure evil. However, I may....or may not have seen a player or two run food in the Sexton.

 

I three marked the ELC, Hellcat, T67 and Comet without food, but I used food for my T20 3 mark grind.

You should have been running food the whole time.  Everyone else you are competing with already is.

I'm not stealing kills, I'm handing out Confederate medals.
