Aye fellas! 

 

I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice on how to obtain the 3rd gunmark for my is6/Somua..

 

It drives me crazy, everytime it goes up to 93-94%, it drops back to 91 ...do I have to do it with a platoon? 

 

I'm running standard battles only, should I try out the other modes as well ?

If you have reached 94% before you will get there again and you can believe that. After that it's a case of just hoping for the same combination of favorable maps and playing the battle in much the same as to how you did that made you reach 94% and believe that it will happen soon and if not it will definitely happen some time. You will know yourself what the situation dictates you required play to make the most of those telling battles. I won't bore you with the tracking and assist dmg etc you already most likely know all these things.

 

Don't over play it early on. You can't 3 mark your tank at the beginning of the battle but you can certainly get killed with zero damage at the beginning playing too aggressive chasing the mark and donk it out of there. There will be an eagerness and little adrenaline buzz of excitement when you know that this battle could get you over the line and you just need to curb that and keep your cool and of course anything can happen you can also be unlucky, play sensibly and just by chance or bad luck, RNG can stump all your shots and enemies are playing out of position or you get focused, this can happen. Pick yourself up, it will happen, believe you are good enough because you got so close before and you will get there no doubt about that.

Hola,

Thanks for your nice words, I think it's a matter of time as well.

 

I've watched some videos where people used that gunmark mod, do you recommend such thing ?

I have reached 93-94% so many times on my E75 but here I am again on 88% lol. I refuse to fire special ammo only to reach 95%.

The mark mod can give you an idea of how close you are to getting the third one but the simple answer to how to get it is to 'git gud' and be consistent in your results.

If you've got 94% before you're very close, just need that little bit more focus.

Get to 94%, wait two weeks and then play one great match. It jumps ups 1-2% in one match if you do.

 

Also, if you start dropping, stop playing. You'll only tilt yourself.

Remember assisted too, in the IS-6 you are unlikely to get much spotting so that tracking shot might not get you one damage shot, but it might get youe 3/4 assisted shots.

 

PPL also say thet assault is a good way to farm damage, and in both of those they have their roles in aiding that push to the 3rd mark

 

Although trying to get the 3rd in the Somau (non prem MM right?) you will need to go full gold, i did a few years ago with the 50 100 and it cost A LOT and was painful

Depends, when you see the mod telling you that you got 94,9% will you be motivated by it or will you get frustrated or even worse go full aggression mode and make mistakes. Personally I would most likely see that number and be more aggressive than usual and make mistakes which costs me not only the chance that game to get to 95% but it most likely also will lower it more than it should have done if I just played normally and thus I need to play even more battles to reach 95%.

put optics on your IS6 that will net you some assist  every game potentially even if its a few hundred it all counts!

Although I'm not a good player enough to 3 mark any tank. 2 Mark at the most for me, I think the most important thing to remember is the time you play.

 

Don't play it on weekends

Don't play on busy hours

Don't play it on marathons

 

Take advantage of map rotation and tank weights, play the tank you want to mark when things are favorable,specially play them when they are released.

Just keep at it and it will come. If it drives you crazy you should probably give it a break for a week or two. :) Small tip for the IS6. With the low PEN but decent DPM going for tracking instead of damage will be a good idea. Track > damage whenever possible. 

 

Platooning is actually a bad idea when marking. You don´t want to share your damage with someone. Good luck man!

Looking at your marks in game I can see why you say that.

It is actually a fantastic idea to match the right pairs of tanks for marking, for example artillery and a LT or a TD and a LT. anything that can directly focus on your spots to raise your assist. marking heavies often means pairing something tankable ( able to hold) with a paper autoloader can yield fantastic results. I would draw the line at 2 though because with a 3 man platoon (unless LT seeking assist) will most certainly make it tougher. I would concede that some tanks work best alone though especially higher tier mediums who can switch flanks and generate assist and damage in equal measure given the right maps.

So another epeen lover that i need to ignore?

 

and remember that it is either spotting or tracking that is counted, not both.

 

AND the OP will be driving a heavy in built up areas with other heavies where spotting distance is pointless

 

BUT he will be able to track and let his team mates do the damage

 

BUT ofc you knew that which is why you suggested optics

 

Now come back on your main account or is that banned???

Best advice I can give, don't do what I normally do and go for glory at the start end up one shot or flipping your tank over and needing to not play the tank for a while!

Why would I ever put optics on a tank that likes short-range brawls.

When we got maps which all allow for short range brawls (almost).

In general, viewrange is not really needed for these reasons.

 

If all maps where like Prokhorovka/Malinovka/Murovanka/Red shire you could have a point. But now,  most maps allow for <100m brawls. Something that fits IS-6 very well.

Go for tracking damage or spotting, never both. if you know that you spotted someone and at that time your spot is higher than tracking  then don't track him as it wont count at all.

Don't go balls to the wall hunting for damage but make sure you are always near your enemies. 

Keep 3marking sessions short. I usually play my tanks normally and only when i reach 88-89% on their gun marks i go for a marking session. if i don't manage to get it in a few battles then i take a break play something else and try again on another day

Unless you got a 3day rental code :teethhappy:
