Hi guys,

I have recently started a love affair with this little German Tier 3 tank, so much fun to play and i wanted to share this with you.

If you are interested in seeing one of my ace tanker games in this tank please see below :

As you will also notice i am uploading a few videos of games and i also want to do some tutorials for new players from the point of view of an average player.. I am not a pro gamer or anything but i enjoy

world of tanks and want to try to help improve the less capable players out there so if you could subscribe to my channel and share it would be much appreciated.

 

Also if you have any ideas for video topics to help train up new players i am all ears!


Thanks,


Solarflare

Agreed, awesome little vehicle.

Can't decide if I prefer it or it's bigger brothers (Luchs etc)

The Pz I c has one downside though - you risk encountering Pz II Js and cannot touch them which I see more often lately.

 

But yeah, it definately got a LOT better now it sees much less Tier V. Previously I preferred the Pz II G, as that one was still very potent in Tier V matches, but currently I think the Pz I C is overall better. However, despite that, the other German Panzers (the Pz III E and the aforementioned Pz II G) are still very powerful on Tier III and can easily deal a lot of damage with their guns.

Aye, that has happened on a couple of occasions - best I could do was run circles around him, make him focus on me whilst someone with a bigger gun finishes him off.

At this precise moment I am on a PC which continually gets totally messed up with graphics and will only play YouTube videos after a restart and then won't work later. It doesn't bother me much as I mainly play WoT and surf the forums on this machine. The problem right now, however, is that I can't watch the video!

 

I have been looking for crew training information for the Pz IC. Normally I would use the Wiki, but the page is messed up and also out of date with regard to MM. I can't see any information on crew training.

 

Normally, I would use 6th sense and camo as a priority, but the Pz IC is usually running like mad around enemy vehicles, always spotted- so camo and 6th sense is useless as a first skill in these circumstances. I thought about Recon (to make it more versatile) and off-road driving, for obvious reasons. I thought about Smooth ride, but the gun isn't that accurate anyway. With only two crew to train, I have never been more confused.

 

What is your setup, OP? Or anyone else for that matter.

 

Cheers. :great:

The crew of my Pz.I C (or rather the duo) :teethhappy:

 

Have started with Brother-in-arms, and since I used it to scout in those tierV matches it will no longer see :( my commander got Sixth Sense as second skill and learns currently camouflage as third skill; the driver has camouflage as second skill and currently learns off-road driving as third skill.

 

Granted, once you start shooting camouflage ain't much useful especially since you got to get rather close for the guns to be doing anything, but it will help you getting closer unnoticed and/or you might be able to slip through the lines and start doin' a Pasucci on their Arty.

 

For equipment I have installed:

- improved ventilation (which nicely stacks with Brother-in-arms)

- optics (it is always nice to see them before they see you even if you plan to YOLO)

- and lastly, enhanced suspension. You want to keep that IC running and that extra durability for the tracks often makes the difference between being able to run into hard cover or getting immobilized out in the open. Also reduced damage from falling if you accidentally made a jump from racing over a ridge (or maybe you jumped deliberately, it's a Pz.IC after all) :B

 

 

For the consumables, a small medkit, a small repair set and a large medkit. The latter one rarely ever used, just on board for the passive bonus. Occasionally, when I feel like blowing some more credits I swap the large medkit with 100 Octane to get a bit more engine power (better turret rotation ain't bad either given that we usually shoot on the move and in many matches you can afford 100 Octane and still make a profit, only with 105 Octane and/or Chocolate things get a bit tricky)

I, personally, deeply appreciate all those Pz 1 Cs out there as fighting against them provides me extremely easy-to-get XP.

They are flipping over onto their sides and back a lot more than they used to.

The only fly in the ointment is the ease you flip over. But even that is fun. Especially when you land back on the tracks.
