Ya I might spend $20 on some help so I can make a tier 2 or 2 into farming tanks, need some more income, takes me a few battles to research, then a few more to make some cash to buy the upgrades, also the higher end rounds are one hitting me, might need a few of those also :) Sticking to tier 2, and 3 until I get comfortable with shooting stationary, then once I try some moving while shooting then I will get into the higher tiered tanks with more speed/suspension.

I gotta find the screenshot but I survived with a Steel Wall for receiving 223 hits.

It can be a fun tank , but you need to damage things to get $$$$. And it doesn't always do that well.

No worries on getting one of those tanks, was just saying thats all :)

I like crunching KV-5s, they are very squishy if you know where you are aiming. I don't bounce all that many shots from them.

The Lowe or the T34 are more to my play style, I just have other plans with the $60 it will take to get one of them.

I find the T20 really squishy... got some speed, but it goes splat nicely

I LOVE THE KV-5. Held a 72% win ratio on it before selling it

KV-5's have some wierd bouncing effects even if you know where to shoot.
I've bounced quite a few long 128 shells from my JT On them. They have bouncionium for armor but, thats to be expected.

Lowe is still the premier money maker. Its gun has heat seeking shells.

Was playing last night with my M5 and I had a KV-5 bounce a shot off me, which i found strange mind you so did the guy using the KV-5.
But the ferni shot did not bounce..
I got the premium cause of the 15% off, which to me saved some coin. I use my tier 4 to 6 to make xp and coin.
Not to sure as of yet to either get the slugger or the T20, still like using my hez with the 105mm on it with HE.
Got enough coin to get the stugIII but not sure as of yet.

I see more and more of lowes playing compared to T34's now where before was the other way around.
Figured I will just try and get the T29 its close to the T34 .

Soultribunal your right the VK tanks once you know how to use them they are fun.
VK3001H makes me some good coin and xp

The 88mm L56 is one of the best guns for that tier. So excellent

I can't count the number of times I have had people call 'hax' for the shots I have made successfully using that gun. It is such a beautiful thing.
