I... Don't know what to say. This was a doozey of a match. My team fouled up. I had so many lucky shots... It was a perfect game. 

 

It didn't start that way thou. 

I moved from spawn at tog speed in my fcm. ( I have only played 5 matches in it so I am still getting to know it. And was wondering what it takes to get a mastery in it. 2 back to back top gun games. One a loss, then this.)

 

Immediately locusts are all over the base. I'm stuck in my own cap circle, unable to use my view range stuck  on an incline. Waiting for the next locust to run past me. So many shots fired. So many misses. Some good hits at first. But chayos.

 

We lost the hill, we didn't even make it to the field. We were playing defensive the whole match. I think my locusts took down their arty on a quick drive thru, I honestly couldn't look away. Enemy's on my left, right, and now looking down the hill behind. I kept firing.

 

Soon its just me, arty and another at. I couldn't even see what he was. I tried to re position but as soon as I turned my back another locust appeared. I turn to fight him and the other at takes em down. I move back out and am in time to help take out another m3 Lee charging. He takes out my at buddy. I'm down to 5 rounds. We have just me and arty. I used the command wheel to let the arty know where I was going ( the field finally) to try to put my view range to use, and low and behold the other tied 3 medium charges across in the moment I an in a ditch again and arty gets the spot on him. (400 meter view range and I only detected the afk opfor and one locust early on... It was so close to going the other way ) 

. I miss one shot. The 2nd one connects as he runs across the field. Success. He's down. I motored towards spawn sitting on 5 kills and low and behold the last opfor is afk. I light him up, arty let's me get the kill and done.....

 

This tank must have some serious xp bonus, or most of my damage was to the tier 4 tanks. I dunno. But victory. And the highest base xp I have had to date.

 

Happy tanking, and fear and respect the fcm...apparently. I will now for sure.

Spoiler

I'm exhausted. Off to sleep. I'll check for typos and see if I need to rewrite this to be readable in the morning...(edit- think I got most of em)

 

Happy tanking

At the time I had 30/5/5 as my ammo load out. Was down to 3 shells at the end of the match. I reloaded to 28/2/10. To try to use more he shells. I've been told in a tier 3 game that ammo is plenty for most targets so I'll try it out next time.

Thank you : )

 

I can't wait to see how I can do when I don't miss 1/3 of the shots. That gun has a long hang time for rounds at range.

That is the beauty of the FCM36 pak40, now you just need to experience getting 10kills in a tier 3 match :playing:

This is why I have loved this tank for training French crews, so much xp! On a side note, this is going to be my first tank to have built up 1 million xp. Sitting at 901,000ish xp and just shy of 400 battles played in it.


Some wise words from Quickybaby: "You are the only constant factor in your games. So your win ratio over a large number of rounds is going to be completely dependent on your skill as a player to influence the outcome of the match."

H.e shells in a tier 3 match is hilarious, not much lives after the first shot

Yup yup. I just want to keep a balance so I'm not helpless in a tier 5 game.

What balance of shells do you use??

You did complete an op. Look next to the double and you will see the next badge has a little xp in the corner. Don't know which one you did though.

something, something, something, dark side...

no he completed no ops. The badge you are referring to shows that his crew has moved up on the skill it was training

Holy crap, great match. You certainly upped the ante for mastery. My last time in the PAK also started with enemy locusts all over the base. It didn't end well on Lakeville south spawn ...

Remember, it's just a game!

Hmm. I may rebalance my lodout. Only have a few matches in it still, but know it seems like everyone runs more sprg then I do. I'll likely change that n see how it goes.

It was not an op. It looks like the badge for like ostrich said completing training or getting more crew xp. But to my knowledge that means the crew gains a higher percentage but crew xp is not shown, what's  displayed is battle xp for the tank.. 

 

Even when you used to get a x3 crew xp on a weekend it did now show x3 the xp earned in the vehicle, it just multiplied the xp you earned by 3 and rewards it to the crew in the background.

Thanks for checking thou, and if an admin wants to correct me please feel free.

the locust swarms are certainly a challenge to deal with. On the closer quarters maps this tank has some troubles. The hardest thing is leading shots on those locusts. There so quick. And now so many people have one : )

I'd love to see some other games played with more of the sprg ammo.
