Joe, 

Thanks so much for the write-up.  New PS4 player that got caught up chasing new tanks.  Was very frustrated with the Hammer Ops and almost ready to throw in the towel.

 

This long term marthon outlook with managing silver and tanks helped me understand the game. Got me excited again 'slowly' building my tank lines.  If I fail Hammer Ops still lots to build and look forward to in playing the game!

Great Stuff Joe!

 

I can personally attest to the fact that the JT 8.8 is a cash minting machine.  I am a 'decent' player and have a couple of stripes.  If I have a match where I make less than 80K then I consider it to be a crappy game.  There has never been a person to whom I have recommended this tank that has been anything but ecstatic with the results.

 

Joe is lots of fun to platoon with, however be warned that he does not suffer fools lightly.

Bumping this so that new players have great guidance

 

(and because the higher-end GD threads right now are so dour and down)

 

Also lots of new OPs available, and apparently War Stories provides decent $$ for folks as well

If people learn how to make Silver during the game they won't be tempted to pay real money to buy some.

yup. this should be pinned.

I luckily found this thread when I first joined the forum on my first account and it helped me a lot.

Didn't have time to read 7 pages of this and not sure if it was mentioned.  I originally played on the 360 for a year before switching to the PS4.  It hit me just before switching over, you do not need to buy every package on the tank. You just need to research them.  I wasted a lot of silver over that year.

I couldn't disagree more.

 

Joe isn't da frog man. He's just a regular man. Not some human amphibian hybred.

 

False advertising.

Get reported kid!

 

 

:trollface:

 

 

The silver stuff is true though. Only take issue with the him not being part amphibian.

The same reason the Kraft's Panther ammo thing, the Island Race exploit, and the War Stories earnings were fixed the very next day.

Yea this thread should be pinned, by why the salt?

A thread designed to inspire/encourage good play from bottom tier is hardly "garbage".

Gawd this thread brings back memories. Definitely helped me get a grip on my Silver worries, (now 14M and 90 fully equipped tanks).

 

C,mon Max, RaiBot, do it for the team.
