Three Bats and a T-62A went hill. Another Bat and a heavy went to the island on the right along with an E-100, an IS-7 sat back and supported them. The remainder of the team went to the city on the left.

The enemy team sent a AMX 50B, Bat, and T57 to the island and pushed immediately. I can't remember if there was another T57.

The city and hill got into position quickly but the island was a little slow, which cost us the game. The E-100 got caught in the water and got hammered good before he got any cover. Those auto-loaders made short work of everything there.

I think everything would have gone fine if we, the three bats on the hill,l had not been ordered to peek over the side and try to take out the Maus. Dahdah, who was the person calling it, thought the hill was fine and had us push. But as soon as we tipped over we started getting hammered. The other two bats died but I was able to get back. I was rushed shortly after.
It was kind of funny when he asked if we had shots on the Maus. We knew that if we poked our heads over we were going to be shot up, so we didn't know what to say and ended up not responding. Then he asked again and we went and tried to unload our clips in to the metal hulk.

If we had settled down we would have been able to help the water side and kept it from getting over run.

Another of the problems was people in the CW that hadn't been in the TR or in any recent CW battles with us. Their reactions were slow and they were doing what they were told to do right away.

I'll try a few tips:

- learn about the tanks' weak spots so you know where to hit and where others may want to hit you

- improve your awareness of your tank's position relative to the battle -- avoid exposing your sides or back side to enemy fire, try to face the enemy solely with the front side where your armor is strongest

- when the other tank is about to fire wiggle around the front side of your tank, that will most like result in a bounce

- shoot and hide behind cover, don't just sit there absorbing all the shots while you reload

- don't rush blindly

The T29 is a great tank. It sports excellent armour on the turret face and mantlet. You will bounce most shots off of it (from the front) The upper hull is less bouncy from the front and practically not at all from the sides. If you can get the T29 into a hull-down position where only your turret face is exposed to the enemy you have an excellent chance to make kills without dying ( tiers being more or less equal. A tier IX or X will have you for lunch)

The M4's strengths are it's maneuverability and it's derp gun. Play it like a medium: work in numbers, hit the flanks and fade back to hit again somewhere else. If you start going toe to toe with the heaver tanks it's going to hurt... a lot.

Yes but its weak point is its "turret hatch/dome/cupola" and that will remain vulnerable even in a hull-down position.

Almost every tank has one and they're all weakspots, but they're not particularly easy to hit, and the T29's happens to be one of the most difficult ones to hit. The T29 is an absurdly strong tank, without a doubt the best T7 Heavy (although the IS is excellent as well, and in some ways is more capable at fighting T9s). Debatable as to whether its the best T7 or not, as the T-43 (with gold albeit), is just ridiculous; It can out-depress it's American peers, which is almost unheard of.
