I am using the T-34 shielded to complete the Kursk missions, in order to acquire the T-34 shielded

... after which you'll never use the T34 shielded again.

Actually, I like it. I'm using it as a trainer for the K-91

The T-34S seems like an ok tank from what I've seen and i'm looking forward to acquiring it via missions as there's no way i'll pay £25.00 for a tier 5 medium (Says the guy who paid about £80.00 for a Pz II J a few years back...). 

 

Seems like the armour is pretty troll for its tier and I adore the regular T-34 which has troll as heck armour to begin with thanks to sloping and Russian goodness. Hoping the addition of some spaced armour will nullify some of the derp guns that infest tier 5.

The term "tank collector" always makes me feel something in between incomprehension and awkwardness...

I took the opportunity to call myself a 'tank collector' a long while ago after I ignored all advice and bought the T-34-85M, was a turd of the highest order. It sat in the garage unloved but part of my 'collection', until the day that WG buffed it and it went from turd to OP overnight. I then played it quite a lot. Of course not so long after that WG virtually gave it away to anybody who could show up in a battle. And once again I have hardly played it at all, not now every fool has one, they ruined my story of a 'collectors tank' and a foolish purchase come good, a rare occurrence.

I wouldn't call myself a tank collector - I am a tank hoarder. I wanted to have every tank in the game and changed that to I want every tech tree tank in the game in my garage. Currently the limit is mainly xp-grinds on tier 8 and nine - only the Italian line is at tier 6, 'murican and french arty at seven, everything else at tier 8+

 

Oh, that and garage slots - I still need loads of garage slots to rebuy all those low tier tanks.....

Why isn't it allowed to have two anyway? Is this a technical limitation of the game / whatever? Not the first time I ponder about that as well.

 

Anyway...

 

Must be nice to have all those thanks, wouldn't have the time for them myself so it's nothing to worry about personally - hard to be jelly or something, but I can see the fun in it.  I know the test-server can help with that but that's just not the same in my opinion, different set and setting really if you ask me it doesn't count!

 

Just being able to play something different every day for months on 'live' would be quite something :).

Lets hope WG enables black special paint for all tanks - so we can have double the amoutn of tanks - Loltraktoer and Loltraktor Black *dreams*
