Ok thanks. I know when I've played as Arty, sometimes I'll specifically ask before the countdown timer ends "hey can one or two people make sure rushers don't kill the arty?"

I have a Jagdtiger on the EU server and I'm not very pleased with it. Although I won 4 Top Gun awards with it I expected a better machine. As it is now it has a very soft front plate and meeting a tier 7 can ruin your game even if it is a head-on one-on-one clash.

Agreed on all points. The advantage of the JT is the accuracy of its gun. That allows it to stay over the horizon and still hit targets. If you get into a knife fight yes you are in some trouble.

I don't have a 704 or a T95 to compare, but having seen those in action I'd say they are more robust and better in the medium range fights and really shine in the close-in fights as long as they have support to keep flankers away.

By nature I'm a long range sniper so I'd probably play all 3 the same LOL.

Wow yesterday I updated to all the latest stuff and played for a while and I could barely get shots off-even if I did they didn't really do much. Some did something of course, but I'm not kidding when I say that I got 2 kills yesterday, in at least a couple hours' worth of playing. Played this morning a bit and did slightly better but coming back to the game after months of not playing it and going against most of the tanks I did, with what I had didn't turn out too well.

What was kind of annoying was that it seemed like I was having lag, and if I had a pesky light tank screaming my way, as the M37 or AT-1, I was having trouble keeping track of them.

But I plan on playing more regularly again, and then maybe I'll know what the heck to do on some of the maps and get some better tanks.

Except the E-50 has a vastly more accurate gun. There really appears to be no place for the Jagdtiger these days.
Obj 704 has better camo, speed and bouncier armour. Plus its gun is devastating at short range.
T-95 is a brick with a BFG.
A T-30 has a deadlier gun, a Turret, and better turret armour.

With the introduction of Tier 8's with better armour, one has to ask: What's the point of a Jagdtiger?

Because it is the only Tier IX I have?

Thanks for the info on the SU-76...just got mine last night and it took a slight bit of getting used to, but in one game this morning I got two kills in quick succession and almost got a third but he was too quick for me. I wasn't expecting the SU-76 to own everything thanks to you, so I tried to stay safe

I recently started playing again, had to start fresh because all progress was wiped after the BETA. I've got a Panzer III A, banking cash for a Panzer III. Also got a Sturmpanzer I Bison, planning on moving up the artillery tree after I get my Panzer III.

In the same boat with you here. One of my friends just said to make a bee line for a tier 5, and I decided to go for the the Panzer IV. However, when (note "when") my Pz III A is destroyed, I leave the battle and start playing as a BT-2, working on the BT-7, etc. down that line to the T-34.

I tried searching for it, but I forgot to try "ACG"...probably the most likely name lol

So I haven't found anything yet, but if it is, it's probably ACG.

In any case I'm in a clan called LETUM.

You dont seem to get the dev's vision for world of tanks. So long as german tanks explode, they are happy.

So its like the leo, VK2801 and most of the german mediums: IS-4 fodder.

What, for LETUM? No limits or requirements. If you include everything in my garage I'm Tier I-III and working on getting a tier IV, and I was allowed in.

If you plan on applying, you might want to say Super_Six_4 sent you.
