That powercreep ruins everything, and that arty could actually get more annoying.

The one thing I wish I had known, was to join a clan sooner - I've met some fantastic people in the 2 clans I've been in and feel slightly sad that I didn't know them from day 1.

 

Somewhere out there is that perfect book you haven't read yet, perfect album you don't even know about yet. It's the same with friends in online games, just keep looking.

Arty’s best shortcut: ctrl+Right-click with the mouse on the minimap to aim where you click without spastically scrolling around ;)

That the game would turn s**t after 9.17.1. RIP Light Tanks.

 

I actually considered quitting but for some stupid reason, kept paying playing.

Not to touch anything except Russian tanks.

 

I wanted that Tiger and then played it with 48% potato winrate. Finally ditchced German box tanks and went with Russian heavies... over 55% winrates in pretty much every one of them without any sweat. About or over 60% in most.

 

I remember playing IS and just wondering how its so EASY to win games with it when compared to Tiger. IS3 vs Tiger 2? LUL. I mean maybe I just got lucky because it's like a cake walk? But nope, the luck stayed...

 

Maybe you didn't play early enough.

I remember owning everything in my tiger 2 in 2012.

Server reticle def did help me a bit too late early on. As I did not use it for the first 2K games I'm sure. It made a massive difference.

 

But for me knowing all the details I know now about spotting would helped me more. I learned small details about it, inc that the barrel can spot over ridgelines after passing 10K games. And I suspect I was not the only one going by the reaction when WG posted their first spotting tutorial video.

4. Too few maps. The number of maps too low compared to the number of played games. Which is very boring.(There are 37 maps + 3 grand battles, + 1 FL, if you had played 10000 battles you had played 1 map 243 times. 40000 games = 1 map x 975 times.)

 

 

To be fair, even with 80 maps you would still play some maps 100+ times within 10K games. And if they had too many maps, and you did see some maps you liked once a month etc. I would actually like it less.

God Damn .... I wish I would have known that 44k battles earlier :) ... that would have saved me some frantic scrolling ... :)

"I remember owning everything in my tiger 2 in 2012."

I remember owning everything in my arty....  people moan now but i used to be averaging 2 kills per battle minimum and regularly 4. the first biggest nerf to arty was the French autoloaders.
