Hello.

The question is: Do you see more XVM based unicums playing German, or Russian tanks (especially tier 8, 9, 10), and why?

Cause I find it extremly difficult to improve my stats playing only German tanks when you can't pen IS-3 side armor with E 100 (150mm gun, AP shell, ~ 30m away).

Is there stw wrong with me or the game?

Kinda reminds me on my recently closed topic- http://forum.worldof...-tanks/#topmost

If you are no unicum then your tank should be as small as possible with the least exposure of the front flat armor. German line is only good for side scraping because most of players use premium ammo. So if you drive e100 or e50M any premium ammo goes through your front flat armor like a knife in the butter.

Not everyone is a hardcore wehraboo like you playing only German tanks. Sure there players playing the very strong/meta tanks but it's definitely not only unicums.

If you can't pen the IS3 from 30 meters away with 246 pen shooting from above (where you can overmath the entire top cover) it is not hte stats that needs improving, it is skill.

i don't think tank nation matters, real unicums are purple in 99% of tanks (arty is not a tank)

this is correct.

the PzKpfw VII is much better than the the E100 to resist HEAT shells, and the cannon has more pen.

So... why is your name very similar to skill4ltu's, just with "FAME" added to it?

 

I am seriously curious.

He has had a thing for skill for a while, tried to make a move on him and got turned down. Now he wears his new nickname like a badge of shame, punished_FAMU

Translated: "despite 9.5k battles I still autoaim at side of tank that is known to have spaced armor instead of aiming 5 cm lower and penetrating every single time. This is not because I'm not willing to learn but because Russian tanks are overpowered."

Unicums do well in pretty much any tank, so if you can't do well in German tanks then it's you, not the tanks.

Just check out some stat websites, you can look at really good players, then check their profiles...You will see what they are using and what works best for them.
