What we need in the world today
Is a guide for the married tank
Some simple thing that in every way
Would provide for the harried tank
Help him not to worry
Assist him to relax
Help him slow his heart rate
And spare him cardiacs

 

It seems to me that the way these days to avoid those cardiacs of which the Turtles warned us back in the '60s is to game-play the system.  Tiers 2 and 3 are fine for this, being at +1 mm, and packed with newbies running 50% crews, so any idiot should be able to garner wins there.  These levels, although to my mind great fun, are not for everyone.  Moving on to Tier 4, anything with a high pen gun will do a good job, with a special mention here for the DW2, with its lethal combination of high pen and +1 mm.  The Val 2 and PzB2 are also fun, especially in toon, as the toon penalty does not apply, given that they will always be top tier.  At tier 5 we see the +1 pmm tanks really start to shine.

 

Above tier 5?  Well, I think you can forget about that stuff.


Such a guide would in many ways
Turn the tide for the married tank
Enable tankers to fill their days
As only the married can
Every tank would praise it
It's such a splendid plan
Someday soon we shall point with pride
To the guide for the married tank


By the side of the married tank
'Tis the tanky who shares his life
You help the bride of the married tank
By removing the tanker's strife
Every tank who's truthful
Who treasures married bliss
Must keep…

Well yes and no. Let's be honest, the KV-220 is good only due to the forgiving armor. You are not going to carry much with only AP in it either at times. Same with the Matilda IV. 86 pen can only get you that far. But the Matilda BP still works regardless oddly enough. And def the SU-85i. 

 

Sadly the same can't be said for the IS-6 on 5+ vs say the E25 or the AT-15A.

I reckon that all the Tier 5 pmm tanks work pretty well.  They may not look amazing on paper (and some of them are widely despised on the forum) but they all get the wins.  And even if you go full gold ammo in them you will most likely make some money.  As far as the KV 220 goes, I find that standard AP is good enough for the vast majority of opponents (e.g. it easily pens a KV 1).

That pseudo-clever post about turtles in the 60s and other cringe-worthy bits where you are trying to write like an intellectual classy Brit make me want to vomit when I remember that your posts never bring any actual value whatsoever.
It's like you have a part of your day specifically booked to post a thread on the forums and then reply to it every minute with another remark that ONLY you think is smart.

 

 The only reason why I haven't put you on an ignore list is so that next time you start insulting another nation with your medical pleb views I can get you another ban from the forum.

I'm English, old boy, "British" is just something for passports.  See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdY1Y5XNJBY&t=5s

I suppose it would be politically correct to dislike BD's posting, but I can't help the fact it reminds me of Lord Pompidou so I can't. :teethhappy:

 

It's weird and mostly nonsense  but I can't help I find it funny.
