I have started using the American SPGs. As I heard that SPGs brought in a lot of credits. I was doing really good with the T57. Then I upgraded to a M37 (I think), and with the slow reload and aiming I am having trouble getting many kills. Any suggestions?

Get the rammer and the gun drive should help alot. Also when your crew gets to be 100% you will hardly miss.

I am on the M41 and it's reload time with rammer is pain full.

I have also found that if you aim at hiding places you usaully hide being an SPG you will find some one else does too. I got the first kill that way in the first 30 seconds of a game. I aim at a place I would have hid if I was on that side.

I haven't played for a while...but...

Super_Six_4

M3 Stuart, M37 (just got), T2 Medium Tank (elite maybe, but not likely, as I got it not too long ago and then stopped playing), AT-1, PzKpfw 38H735 (f) (elite since its premium), and yeah I think that's it.

I must say that the PzKpfw 38H (f) premium is slow and all, but I took about 90 shots before dying, in one game. A number of shots just glanced off, and it took a lot of shots that did damage to take me down. I believe I was the last one alive during that game, and I had taken many shots before I was the last one.

Right now I have a Tetrarch, T-127, M7, PzKpfw III/IV, M2 MT, Marder II, and a PzKpfw III. I think that's all.

German:
Panzer 38H735(f), Panzer II, Panzer B2 740 (f), Lowe, Marder II, Stug III, Jagdtiger
French:
FT-17, AMX 13/75
US:
M22 Locust, M24 Chaffee, M4 Jumbo, M46 Patton, T34*, T30*, T18, M36 Jackson.
USSR:
Tetarch, T-26, Churchill, KV-2*, KV-3*

*Remember when the Tech tree revisions come in, all these tanks get doubled.

All are elite, and I've pretty much finished researching everything. So its jsut a matter of playing for fun, and waiting until some proper tanks (AKA: British) come out Q4 2012/Q1 2011.

Here are some pics of the score board at the end of one of my games in my new Hetzer. All I had upgraded on it was the track and 2 engines. So it had a stock gun.

I got Top Gun, Master Gunner, Reaper! First time ever getting 6 kills!

Listy I wish you were on the NA server - I need a partner to push some Jadgtigers around the map. I love playing mine, but it can be difficult without a partner to guard each other's backs.

I also enjoy playing my T-28 TD - it is surprisingly agile and seems more survivable than the comparable Ferdi in the German line. The T25AT was also very good.

Haven't made it past the SU-85 on the Soviet line, but I love playing it because it dominates its own tier.

Hating the French tanks, but I've only made it to tier IV on both lines because I only play once a day with them for the doubles. Can't stand them.

I've got so many tanks I can jump pretty much where I want to on a tech tree. For example I jumped straight the the AMX13/75, cause I wanted a Tank to use in Tier 7.

Back when I was playing more regular, I started on the Soviet TD line since I wanted to try out TDs...got myself an AT-1 and I was working towards the SU-76 and then SU-85. Glad to hear the 85 is great. How about the SU-76-thoughts, tips?

My rule of thumb with TDs is to stay as far back from the action as possible and snipe. Besides the obvious statement that many TD units are paper thin on the sides, they usually have better than average accuracy. The SU-76 though struck me as under-powered, even for its own tier. This is even more reason to stay behind the action. It has good mobility if nothing else.
