I finally bought the B-C 25 t as I wanted for a while now, sadly I had to play solo to test it which I'd rather avoid. I had some crap games I'd rather forget, but then I got spawned on Glacier.

 

And my actual God, regardless of the fun that a Bat Chat is as I discovered, that map is so sexeh.

 

So I can't even be bothered to talk about results here, just enjoy some pictures I made because this looked spectacular.

 

 

 

 

 

(ps the images seem compressed, it looked even better in-game imho)

also, some comments on the Glacier map: it's a fun and diverse map where every type of tank seems to be at home somehow, there's one small thing: the Mines-esque rush-hill (the actual glacier visible in shot 2) is rather imbalanced. Not only was it easy for me and a 430U to get there very quickly with not even a sign of an enemy, I, with my lousy gundep could hit all kinds of enemies in the enemy spawn, when I tried to shoot enemies engaging my own spawn the snipe spot on that side wasn't good enough to hit anything, only to get hit from. So the South spawn has a slight advantage there, methinks.

Fjords and Glacier are the most suggestive maps IMO.

 

Really nice photos mate!

Congrats on getting the BC it's an awesome tank, someday I'll get back to that myself, also the images looks amazing. One question though, Are you say that the south spawn got an advantage from the middle? Was that your spawn or the enemy's?

It is visually stunning and I’ve enjoyed the few games I’ve played on it

Love the second one Nice shots :)

 

Not glacier but

Btw the last one is from last game before 1.0

You can even take screenshot of tank in garage without UI by pressing right alt+F12 (but you have to setup it first since after pressing you wont be able to move mouse)

Lovely, the tank porn connoisseur's Pirelli calendar equivalent.

 

Still, some bikini clad girls mounted on the cannon would have improved things somewhat.

 

Yeah Kandly, don't read that last sentence - let's just pretend I never typed it.

I'm surprised nobody posted a photo with those geysers jizzing when you approach them. Oh well.

It really is a gorgeous map. Reminds me of Finland around mid-summer.

That was the side I spawned on, you have the aircraft carrier next to the actual glacier: the south spawn can use the glacier, the north spawn can use the ramp of the carrier. However, the carrier is even ground, the glacier is slightly rounded so you can exploit low gun depression to actually work.

 

I don't know if any of this makes sense, hence I uploaded the replay file anyway, whether it's for checking out Glacier or my sucky B-C gameplay, in the mid section of the replay my point towards the "imbalanced" snipe points is proven.

Looks amazing, shame my game looks like a PC version of WoT Blitz (which I still think looks pretty good, all things considered, and it gave me a great performance boost too!).

 

The aircraft carrier sniping points were very... astounding to me. I didn't realise you could get such a highly elevated terrain feature in the game engine, and its so absurd that a lot of tanks don't have enough gun *elevation* (not depression!) to hit you from the frozen lake. Not much use without a lot of gun depression though. Tilt slightly over on Mines hill and you'll be lucky to get away with half your HP left. Tilt slightly over on Glacier and say goodbye to your tank.

My Emil 1 agrees very much with this...absurdly strong position if enemy allow you to get there.

The ice and how the sun reflects on it is quite spectacular. They got it so right that it tricked my senses so I could feel the heat on my face. Guess I could do for a break and go out to the real deal for a while. :harp:

Nice game play and i see the mines hill similarity but were you scared when that fat turret of the E100 turned to you (twice)? :)

Haha I know exactly what you mean, I could never pen an E 100 turret but he indeed turned towards me and I took a panic shot. I killed him by permatracking though (or my team did, I don't remember).
