TD specials are my favorite. I think there's nothing more awesome than having 5-6 bots camping on both bases "completing missions", shooting friendly LTs because "no spot" and ensuring there's not going to be any interaction in the game.

Time to push all my TD lines especially the Chinese one though I might have to splash out on some full price crew training first. :(

 

Bots ? way to colour all TD players with the same brush.

Another way to look at it is that TDs are specialists no not at base camping but ambushing, TD players look at a map and work out where the best killing ground will be.

Then the medium and heavy tank players decide that they need to fight over a ridge or around a corner probably the worst place to take something without a turret.

 

Ideally teams can find a way to work together effectively, well I live in hope.

I hope for re-doing MT-15-4 with honors this weekend. ;)

And it's not only because of "TD's spotlight" (I really hadn't seen any crucial teams' setups changes while others spotlights), but because of Ranked too. ;)

Hmm, time for me to get myself a russian TD crew trainer then. Got some leftover gold that will be quite handy. :)

 

Maybe even do some TD missions with honors hopefully?

Guess it'll work nicely with me doing the Chinese TD already, after today it'll be the only Chinese branch there isn't T8.

"I am a TD, n00b, I must camp, learn to play bot, mind your own game... " is what I usually get after asking them to move up a flank... :)

I like to play aggresively in TDs, which is to say, go as close as possible to the enemy in order to be able to spot him, without being spotted myself, with a near 100% camo crew, so that could mean ~300m.

But nowadays I mostly play turreted tds, my favorite bein t67, followed by T30 and strv S1. Skorp G is out there somewhere but it's pretty ugly, even though the gun performance is great.

 

Maybe it's finally time to get to that t7 Chinese td that could trump the su-122-44

Can anyone tell me if the 30% Premium TD discount will also apply to Premium Shop purchases, or will it just be in-game for Gold?

Ta :)

It will apply to shop purchases but the 30% will only apply to the tank, not the garage slot you get with shop purchases, so the discount will appear to be less than 30% in the shop.

Hey ARMAGEDN, you can find the latest info about the Defender in this topic. Please refer to that topic instead, since this one is unrelated to it. :)
