NA Server - Post your name here if you want to friend-up

I'm opening a new thread for anyone on the NA server who wants to play with other members of ACG from time to time as part of a 2 or 3-man platoon. If we had enough in our friend list we might even be able to set up a full tank company and go out and fight other tank companies.

I'll start off. siberian_HEAT is my handle.
Primarily play TDs in the US (up to T28) and German line (up to JT). Also have a wide variety of lesser tanks with some of my current favorites being;

SU-26
T-50-2 (a speedboat with a speedy 57mm gun)
Tiger
KV/107

Put me in your friend list and I'll look for you out there!

I am Desert_Fox2. (I hated having to butcher my name like that.) Feel free to add me to your friends list, and it would be great to platoon with all of you! I am trying to work on getting my kills up. I normally knock down a guy a good way then a heavy comes up behind me and finishes him off with one shot.


Right now I have a

MkVII Tetrarch
T-127
M7 Priest
PzKpfw III/IV
T-50
T-46
Hetzer

Siberian, does the T-50-2 lose many credits in a game?

It is pretty much a break even for me. But it is worth whatever the cost because it is like a speedboat out there. It can carry the same 57mm that comes with the Russian T34, which you may or may not know is like a chain gun in terms of reload speed and accuracy. So, with the speed of the T50-2 and the lethality of the t34 it can be pretty deadly within its tier. I put camo and binos on it too, and my greatest achievement was sitting a few hundred yards away plinking the side hull of a T34 (USA Tier IX), and whittling him away to nothing. I'm not sure he ever saw me or else didn't think a mere scout was a threat.

To put it in perspective I pretty much hated the Leopard, M5, and T50 because scouting just wasn't my thing. The T-50-2 is like scouting on steroids. In a recent post by Wargaming.net they hinted they might remove it at some point because it is too OP. If you are close, get it just to try it!

To be precise, in “You ask, We reply” #9 Wargaming.net stated: "Currently only T-50-2 has shown that it is better than the other scouts. In a few areas it is much better than the other Tier 5 lights. It will be either slightly reduced in effectiveness or replaced."

I have researched the T-50-2 but haven't yet purchased it. I probably should.

This game has got me hooked. I'm Snaekolf and I currently have the following:

Tiger 2
M26 Pershing
IS
T-34/85
Slugger
M5
Stug III
SU-26

I'm primarily focused on the Russian & German heavy, U.S. and Russian medium trees.

I probably won't be playing a whole lot, and I don't have all that high tiered tanks, but if you're interested I'm Super_Six_4

I have:

-SU-76
-Pz II (will be sold for either Pz III or Luchs...not sure which)
-M37
-Rennault (I dink around with it to get extra credits and exp)
-T2 Medium Tank
-M3 Stuart

I think that's it.

UPDATE:

I sold and bought some tanks, so now I have:

-SU-76
-Pz III A
-M37
-Rennault
-BT-2
-M3 Stuart
-Pz38Hf[insert rest of number here]

I don't think i'm missing any. I sold my T2 Medium to get a BT-2 so I could go for the T-34 (a tier V I believe), but my primary Tier V goal is the Panzer IV, so that's why I sold my Pz II for a III A.

The PzIV is OK but the stock engine and gun is awful. You need the fully upgraded engine with the long 75mm gun before it picks up and after that you have to mount the "Darth Vader" turret if you want the bigger guns. The T-34 was also a disappointment for me - poor armour, poor gun, OK speed. Both give me poor match-ups

IMHO, the US Sherman is the tier V medium to aim for as it has good speed and two good guns. The 105mm is my favourite and it allows the Sherman to fight above its tier better than others. Plus, the Sherman then leads on to the great Easy 8 and superb Sherman Jumbo. The Jumbo is my favourite as it combines good frontal armour with the 105mm gun and decent speed. In some games I've been able to hold off a few enemy tanks because their guns couldn't penetrate my frontal armour (if you go for the Sherman, don't upgrade the turret on the Jumbo. The stock one is the best). That won't always be the case, luck plays a part too, but it's a very good tank.

Hmm thanks for the advice! One of my friends just said to make a bee line for a tier 5 and I had already been debating over getting the Luchs or Pz III A, so after some advice from him and looking at the tech tree, I got he Pz III A and so began my quest for the Pz IV. I hadn't really considered going for the Sherman-I think perhaps I rushed the decision for a Tier 5 goal. I'll try to look at the tech tree but do you know if you can get to the Sherman through the M3 Stuart? I want to say you can but I can't remember well-been a long time since I looked at that part of the tree.

You can get to the Easy 8 through the Stuart line but I wouldn't recommend since it just leads to that one tank and if you don't like being a scout for your team then it won't be much fun.

I remember that to get the PzIV I had to be a scout with the 38na and it was a horrible grind. The top speed on the tank was good but acceleration was just too poor which meant you got to the middle of the map at the same time as higher tier mediums who also have better visibility than the 38na. The result was death within the first couple of minutes.

Yeah I didn't go THAT route luckily.
