So - Chisel Stage 5 is on lots of peoples' minds, including my own.  Thought I'd take a break from the contract grind - I need one more HC to gateway into Stage 6 -  and go play something different this weekend. I love my Brit tanks very much, my US tanks almost as much, but there is a limit.

 

So jump in my new shiny Tiger 217 (a trade-in earlier this week and barely touched) and first game of the session …

….I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry :unsure:

And within 2 replies, a light-hearted thread observing an equally annoying & amusing irony turns into an argument and contains a gif.

 

Keep it up guys, I only need Godwins Law to fill in my Internet Forum Bingo card early today. :P

Top marks for the pun there - there was no third game. Been playing something else since.

 

As for citadel vs 217.  I have played neither enough to form any opinion of note; 10 and 4 games respectively.  The Citadel wasn't a purchase (War Chest I think) and wasn't impressed - not touched it since the week I had it and played those games.  Maybe I should take a look again in an idle moment; in my possible trade-in stock-pile til then.

 

The 217 - a trade-in via a tank I had not interest in that dropped in a War Chest - was a matter of curiosity to see what it was like (and got 900k silver in the bargain).  On 4 games (3 lost; 1 win) I feel more a Medium than Heavy in terms of speed etc - armour is what you'd expect from a Tiger but you suffer from the typical Tiger issue of placement of ammo-racks - I paid for that in 1 game. I checked the module viewer after that game - seems to have added extra racks compared to other Tigers, I'm no expert, so may be wrong in this regard. Also, the gun seems a little whack for a Tiger variant - that game the exception.  Maybe I was getting used to the gun and it's handling at that stage?  However, when it hits, it hurts. Plenty of Mediums & Lights were 2 shot targets.  I had 2 pretty good games; 2 where I was spanked back to the garage within moments.  

 

That view comes with another caveat to so few games - I only play Heavy tanks rarely, a break from the usual Lights and Mediums I favour.

I've been sitting on stage 5 with only 1 assisted complete and no HC medals. I've pretty much given up on trying to complete it and just let it run in the background. With all the lights running around and lack of awareness of the teams I've had, I can't believe I even got the first assisted damage.

 

Whenever they do these team reliant ops where everyone is chasing the same thing or it causes yoloing it pretty much ruins the game. It's not actually hard, but is? You cannot even get out of spawn without some moron driving into your tank or going out of their way to cut you off so bye bye HC if you T-bone someone. Then you go into an aggressive spotting position and everyone fails to damage the tanks you spot or my personal fav. They follow you there and so you get nothing or it's shared so you basically get nothing. So it's not a hard task but is made hard due to certain issues with the current player base. Glad at least some of you have succeeded.

I think that you just have to laugh. After I completed it a week ago, one in T110e5 and one in the Conqueror, I now have 5 more in the Conqueror, 1 more in the S. Conqueror. and 2 more in the FV4202. For some odd reason they are easier to get when not trying for them.:facepalm:

Aaandd....

 

took a break today from the Chisel contract to earn some xp for my other tanks with the x5 xp bonus on for the day.

 

It wasn't my first match out, but less than 10 and my first in the Thundebolt, just playing as I normally do, and High Caliber.

 

And most of my other matches that have been played, I have been top tier.
