It is probably my fav tank to drive now in tier 8 skirmishes or cw. Its such a lovely tank to drive. Ive tested out quite a few types of equipment variations....ive opted for vents rammer optics.....but i did have alot of fun with a spall liner + controlled impact on my driver :P seriously.....I've taken out a 1390 full hp with a side on ram...only thing is that I only got to do it a few times so it wasn't worth it in the end...optics is a much better choice....but if you know your playing city maps alot then i recommend it! I thought the vert stabs was a waste...didnt seem to make much difference

Holy hell, I bought this last night due to the 50% crew retraining offer.

 

I loved the LTTB, the closest to the old T-50-2 ive owned and finished it well for win rate, but I played this more as an active scout and didnt really engage the enemy unless i found a lone tank

But this thing is a beast, ive already got the the T54 so all i need to research now is the tracks and top radio but I just know this is going to be new favourite tank.  Only 3 games but averaging over 2k dpg and 4412wn8.  Its hilarious.

 

Kill/Death Ratio 8
Damage Caused/Received 2.82
Average Number of Vehicles Destroyed per Battle 2.67
Average Damage Caused per Battle 2024
Enemy vehicles destroyed 8
Experience 3748
Maximum experience in a battle 1658
Hits 80.49%
Damage Caused 6072

Hesitating to buy it because I'm not sure how much I'll like it compared to LTTB. Have 90 efficiency rating on it with 1316 average damage per battle, got second MoE and going very strong for the third. Not once it helped me pull almost 4k damage and carry games. Got my female crew in it so it's pretty well set up for active and even passive scouting considering the view range is somewhere at 465. Great RoF, great mobility, decent armor against low tiers, great top speed, great DPM. Should I ?

Also struggling a bit. Get some decent games but struggling in the main. Camo rating seems poor at times (despite a fully trained crew). That gun depression is a pin at times with low depression over the front is again proving a killer for me. So I end up spending too much time trying to get a clear shot. 

I may look at a change in my light tank style of play i think. Concentrate hard on spotting for much longer than I do currently and hope for decent damage at the end of the game. The fact that this game is highly slanted towards damage done makes being patient a little hard, especially when all the good spotting locations are known. It's definitely an art form.

can i ask people thoughts on the following please. 

 

My current T54-LWT has the following crew training. 

 

1st Skill. All Camo, bar Commander who has 6th sense.

2nd Skills - Commander Camo, Driver smooth ride, Loader situational awareness, Gunner Dead eye.

3rd skill - BIA at 55% on everyone. 

 

Should I retrain the entire crew with BIA and then the specific skills / perks for each as a 3rd skill. Any other skills I should consider instead of these?

I'm just trying to think of ways to improve the tank a bit as I'm still struggling a bit. Some good games but pretty poor in the main. I'm not helping my team anywhere near enough (and vice versa for that matter!)

I seriously dont know what to do with this thing anymore. Seriously cant get it to work and it is quickly becoming my worst performing tank of all time. I'll hold my hand up and say I'm struggling but wow I'm not getting much luck either with games being lost 15-3 or worse far too often. 

 

Like I said I'm not that clever in it but its as if there's a whole different level which is above me when I drive this tank. Playing lots of T10 games is part of it sure but I have other T8 tanks that perform far better than this one. 

I've been checking videos etc. out and even looked at how the tank is performing overall. That makes interesting reading with the average damage just over 800 and a sub 50% WR (according to VBAddict.net)

Not a very easy tank to get on with it seems

Well my love / hate relationship continues with this thing.

 

My WR absolutely sucks in it, My damage dealt is too low and my survival rate is in the gutter. By some miracle I've got my first MoE on it but performance wise its way below par for me. 

Even if I find that I have a decent game in it I lose more than I win which makes me think that any damage and spotting I do is not in the right places to influence the battle. Any tips anyone? I might try and throw a replay down to illustrate my point and wait for the back lash of "uninstall game" and "Noob".

@Noo_Noo

Leave it in your garage if you can afford it.

You can always come back to this vehicle.

Meanwhile, you could seek some more fun while LTing other vehicles or seek some more experience in MTing before that.

:honoring:

it is an option but it doesn't make me a much better light tank player. Plus despite the poor results I do actually like the tank. Well for now anyway! :P

 

But there is obviously a big gap in my general game play that I need to improve upon> well several actually and this is just one. I will obviously need to eradicate the stupid mistakes etc. but there's this whole side of having a positive influence on the battle in a light tank that I need to really look at and develop. Off the top of my head these would be:
 

  • Spotting in the right areas at the right time. Initial spots are useful but when the game opens up a little they become equally or even more important. 
  • optimum positioning / re-positioning as the game develops to keep that gun working. All too often I have quiet periods in the game where I'm searching for angles / safe shots but always struggle to find them.
  • Knowing when to be aggressive and when to be passive. My game play tends more to the passive if I'm honest. So there's a side there to look at. 

 

I'm not in a massive hurry to progress up the Tiers and will quite happily sit at this level and improve my skills and the crew.

Still hate this thing. Gun simply isn't good enough IMO.
