I am getting the VK3001, I tried the VK3601H and I found I spent more on it then making money on it. Always got killed way to fast with it.
The Sherman is great tank done well with it so far, finally got the first 76mm the 105mm is crap.

I am thinking of getting the T34 or KV-5, but not to sure, might just hold off on it.

The VK series really teaches you how to play your tank well considering the gun is odd in its Pen Values but hyper accurate when it wants to be.
Again though, there are some tanks that some excel at that others have issues with , so its all good.

Lowe is still the King when it comes to $$$ earned per match. The KV5 is nice ( I have all) but its gun is lackluster and you will get a lot of frustration with it. Though I can still make money, its not nearly as easy as a Lowe. Though the KV5 will get you steel wall after steel wall.

I thought the T34 and Lowe were on par for money making. I've beaten most of my friend's records on their Lowes already with my T34, with a max of 138k.

Agreed on the KV-5, the gun will leave you wanting more. It's pretty useless against higher tiers.

See now I hear from the players they do not like there Lowes but like there KV-5, as for the T34 heard lots of good things.
Yes for the VK it does, but just found the 3601H if I got hit in the right spot it was done. plus even with the upgraded engine still was not that fast.
Maybe cause I am use to my PZ3/4.

Anyone going to be on tonight let me know, finally can play again since got my new LCD in.

They're trolling you. The Lowe is the best premium T8 in terms of user friendliness. KV5 is faster and "better armored", but has a giant weakspot on the front that everyone can penetrate. Plus the gun is TERRIBLE for tier 8.

The T34 has a good gun for tier 8, but its speed and aim time got nerfed to hell so it isn't even fun to play anymore.

Well then, I think I will get a Lowe and make some money and xp

I'm sure you all know but some tanks are 50% off today cause its there 1 yr anniversary, and discount on premium packages.

Lowe is king of Consistent money. Even on crap matches and crap performance I get 50K. And, that gun has some insane accuracy/Pen.

Yep, you'll do consistent damage throughout the game, which earns you big bucks. The Type 59 and KV5's gun will bounce too much if not aimed properly..and the T34 just takes too long

Well got me my Ferdi. Its going to be a bit painful until I get the 128. Record isn't the best right now, but it will get better. Having a blast playing it though. Bought enough gold to demount the rammer from the JP free up all the xp that was on my PzIV.

I hit a Lowe from the front the other night with 2 shots and left him with about 15hp...then my team let a T-50-2 get through and the little bugger hit me from behind. Did enough damage to me to slow my ROF down enough for the Lowe to clobber me.

Ferdi is actually reasonable with the pak 105 in its tier, but when you get the 128 you can actually start bullying Tier 9 tanks.

The notes about Ferdi though, the engine upgrades are worth it
