The Russian MS-1 at tier 1 is a great tank only problem is the 45mm mod gun the aiming time is to long and so gets killed by the quicker ain time guns on other tanks can WG buff this please lower the aim time to give ppl a fair chance

:D :facepalm:

MS-1 under powered? :D ... yes and needs more ammo, also needs penetration so I can platoon with KV-1 and be able to kill tier 5 with AP shells. Sure. Can't deal with one of the few drawbacks? It's got great speed, penetration, damage, it can side-scrape, (one of the best tier 1 side scrapers) also best camo value on tier 1 and it can actually bounce machine gun shells on the front.

I have to agree with guest273, The MS-1 is a great tank already and I don't think it needs buffs. I'm a bad player (rushed the tiers up to 5 before I returned back to Tier 1 to learn the game) and the MS-1 gave me my first Mastery badges, just use its stealth, powerful gun and armor in the right way.

 

Guest273 thanks for the sidescraping tip will give that a try again.

 

cheers Marc

I personaly like the ms-1 because the machine guns this little machine has, also angling the armor well will cause many ricochets to occur

As others have mentioned already, it has trade offs. Learn how to use them to your advantage, and you will be rewarded with some enjoyable gameplay. I've had many matches with four or more kills using concealment wisely in between repositioning, and not to mention some good old fashioned shootouts, and last tank alive against the odds, and won.

 

All this is possible with practice, luck and if your team don't run out into the open, shoot their guns off 'n get killed in the first five minutes lol..

Currently struggling to ace this, if anyone has how much base xp did you need?

 

Been doing solid games of 600-800 dam, with 750 base xp being 2nd class... For a tier 1 that's a lot...

forget acing tier 1 tanks. The issue is that training battles are counted in mastery requirements.

(training battles are where tier1 tanks kill bots, but those don't give mastery. They artificially inflate M requirements that you need to kill like 10 tanks to qualify for M badge. Waste of time.)

if you want to really " Ace " the MS-1 , I recommend fitting the camo net and binoculars ( and use a 100% crew ) with camo crew training and full 6th sense on commander

for the last equipment slot , then its either vents - or enhanced gun laying drive to get the aim time down - your choice

another Tactic is to sit back at the start of the game - and snipe in cover with bushes , with hard cover close by , and let your allies spot the enemy

and fire at distracted enemy tanks , the 1st 2 shells fired should be High Explosive to track and get assistance damage

only move up when you need to get extra kills and damage , I would think Mines or Himmelsdorf is your best bet

Mittengard will be a bad map for you , due to autoloader tanks

never get close and brawl in the MS-1 at the start of the game , keep your health intact till later in the game ............

MS-1 is a bit disadvantaged. There aren't many maps where you can use your camouflage. So it usually gets spotted. When this happens the enemy can fire at least once fully aimed before you do and considering your low HP that's a very bad thing. It really needs a lower aim time.
