These videos are great but Jackson as tank name were kinda... erm You know..
"We need to use Jackson to penetrate behind"
"Jackson penetrated our back"
"Jackson flanked us and surprised"

I'm getting all the dirty stuff from Jackson named tank

Btw what happened that Speed talking guy?

Great guides anyways.
These stuff lets starters to look where to shoot or how to play. Keep them coming! +1 as reward.
Edit:
Oh comon!

Skill tips are a bit... the best one for the loader is adrenaline rush?

Otherwise, great TD, especially since they fixed the gun depression. I only wish it gets it's historical 450 HP engine over the one with 420 it has now.

What are you waiting for? That Play-button won’t hit itself, you know?
That's a little bit arrogant  :Smile_Default:

Great video. :) I'm getting Hellcat soon, they're similar I guess.

Ohhh no they're not...

Hellcat: No armor, faster travelling speed, higher penetration I think, open top turret.

All in all, Hellcat is not very similar to Jackson... I think anyways...

Well, Hellcat allows for more versatile play because it has speed to reach places fast. But it should be played similarly, second line sniping. The gun is the same.

They share the same gun so penetration is the same

Great video! I think TD's from the USA are the best. I wonder if they will also make a video-guide for M24 Chaffee. :Smile_Default:

You get a cookie for including a picture of a M36B1 :)

But your guy seems not to know how to play, what's with all the fidgeting?

As to the Equipment choices, well lets just say there's two schools of thought there, and you only represented one of them.

Why do all tanks have to fight from behind friendly lines? Does that mean that there is no single tank that can fight on the front line?

Another thing I'd like to say is that a tier 6 tank destroyer should not go head-to-head with an IS-3 (or any tier 8 heavy for that matter). I really wonder whether the devs drink vodka instead of coffee...

Honestly, I have no idea why they called it Slugger in the first place. I've never heard of M36 being called Slugger till I saw it in WOT. It was always M36, 90 mm GMC or Jackson. They should just stick with official markings.

Always confused me  as well.
By the sounds of it I suspect that some account somewhere has a quote from a US soldier where he mentions "Slugger" in relation to the M36, and the rest was lost in translation.

I like your video guides  :Smile_great: , but i dont like some other stuff.  :Smile_sceptic:

Yeah right like Matilda Black Prince? That man (who named it) was "педик".  :Smile-angry:
Sixth sense ruins the game because now even vegetables knows when are spotted.   :Smile_sad:
M36 - i dont mind to get it again but only for half a price. Why im buying tanks almost always for half the price? Because i can afford it.  :Smile_trollface-3:
For cutlet like me it was easier to handle Hellcat than this one (M36).

Signal boosting? Use a secondary skill slot to increase the most useless stat in the game?

From what I understand, US soldiers during the war just called it "TD", like other TDs too...
