115k xp to go, and for the next 2 weeks with bonus money, thanks!

 

As far as the suggestions go... well, they are only suggestions I guess...

 

edit: I know, there's always one who complains, so we got that one out of the way ;)

Should I laugh or should I cry on this Top of the Tree :confused: ??? Since on Tier 8 I have 49% win rate, and I have T9 already but didn't played on it. And looking at that pen for every gun from that T9, I'm not really sure if I want my nervs to explode :angry:

Isn't the M48A1 the least played and least impressive tier 10 at the moment? I see the thing less than even the premium/gift/reward tier 10's!

 

Can understand though. It's not all that much fun to play and feels weak compared to other tier 10's. The 10m extra viewrange isn't worth all the downsides of the tank.

Have that tree unlocked from the old days of Pershing being the tier 9 and top of the tree. However I see no point of having and playing an M48 when I have a 110e5

Too bad Leo has higher RoF than M48 Patton now. No reason to play M48 apart from to bring my DPG over 3k atleast since it was my first t10.

 *Please note that all of your guns already have quite comfortable reload-time values. Therefore you could also consider replacing the Gun Rammer with Improved Ventilation and make all your Crew Members learn the Brothers in Arms skill in order to improve the vehicle’s general performance.

 

 Whoever wrote that guide should be fired from Wargaming for spreading missinformation

 

Here is the proper way to equip your M48


Vstab Rammer Optics (if you dont have + VR skills)

Vstab Rammer Vents IF you have 2 viewrange increasing skills.

 

 

As for the M48 tank itself: Its the perfect jack of all trades tank. It has no real bad maps compared to many other medium tanks. Mobility is good enough, gun is amazing at close/medium ranges.

The real minus is the abysmal camo value. Turret does bounce some random shots, but it's not reliable at all.

fancy them saying replace the rammer with vents......

 

You summed up the patton very well, i do like it although i have the most horrible luck in it, it has one of my oldest crew pretty much maxed out skills.

I use food and optics on mine and have 520 view range  it does come in handy on certain maps.

With cola you can really abuse the amazing accuracy on the move. Especially when going over small hills meaning you dont have to expose your turret for that long ect.

M48's accuracy on the move is another really good feature.

According to my research (browsing through 80-90 pages of news) M48A1 Patton is the only tank being for the second time Top of the Tree. Meanwhile, american tanks like E5 or T57 Heavy are still on hold, waiting to get there for the first time.

 

Is this correct or i missed a few posts?

I think you can scrap brawling from the list of roles this tank can perform.
