I Mastered My Medium Tank

Reward

  • 1 x Enhanced Gun Laying Drive
  • 5 x Personal Reserves: +25% XP for 1 hour

Requirements

  • Random Battles only
  • Tier VIII and above only
  • Medium tanks only
  • Once per account

Conditions

  • Win a total of 10 battles
  • Be in the top 5 players on your team by base experience earned (bonuses for the first victory, Premium Account, etc., will not be counted to determine the rankings)

 Cause who uses an EGL on a Medium?

 

 

3x XP and reduced cost on tanks is fine, also boosted free crew XP conversion but how many use that?

May consider picking up FV (due to friends praising it - wasn't a big fan of it though) or M4A1 Rev (due to sir foch)... choices, choices. Certainly gonna buy a tier VI Jumbo so thanks for that.

Probably would have preferred a Verticle Stabiliser but gld more widely used I guess.

 

Tempted to grab a bit of premium time and seriously grind the WZ120s modules

 

Assume the SPG mission will now be Rammer.

On that note please WG not tier 8 and up SPGs next week, spread the hurt make it tier 5 and up ;)

STA-2? Well, where to start... It is good, but the major letdown is the shell velocity, and since it's a second line support tank, that's kinda bad. However, it can be dealt with,you get used to it. If you can go around the fact that it's lacking some top speed (otherwise being quite mobile) it's actually quite good. I'd say it's better than the CDC because it actually has some turret armor and the gun is less trollish. The recent AP pen buff is good, but the RoF nerf balanced it.

STA-2 is great but IMHO CDC is better. I love the mobility of CDC and STA-2 is like 11km/h slower so you cannot bomb around the battlefield nearly as much. However STA-2 has some armour so you'll stop most HE shots... I did once have CDC absorb the HE shot from my O-Ho (troll gun) so once in a while CDC has a miracle bounce. I'd say pick a tank that will train your existing crews, so if you have French meds go for CDC, if Japanese meds go for STA-2. You cannot go wrong with either! :)

Thankfully I'm on holiday next week so I will miss the whole thing and won't have to be bitter about this being Tier 8 and above.

 

 

I'll just have to sip cold beer by the pool instead.

The M4A1 Upgraded is actually pretty good, APCR standard ammo, and 200 pen is ok for tier 8.

Not even a choice. both are crap. only unicums can make Rev work and FV is the worst teir 8 medium in game.

You can't penetrate of an IS3's armor from the front side with 200 pen. It needs buffing at least to 215.
