I'm a 50% w/r player, and half of that is statpadding but.....

 

  • VK3002M 56%
  • Bretagne 55%
  • Pudel 59%

 

About 300 games in them combined (and they are all the same tank).  I'm starting to think that they are OP if they can give me a 5% to 10% boost on w/r.

OP? No. Capable? Definitely. Its armor can troll more them most meds at that tier. And the gun is no slacker either. If anything you found a tank style that works for you more so then a... fluke.

Why are you surprised? :amazed: After 30k battles you should be able to influence tier 6 games, no matter which tank you use.

It would be nice to think so, but some of us are, despite best efforts, not very good at the game, even after spending 7 years playing it.  Have some pity on us.

 

I'm a military history buff and something I like about this particular tank is that it seems to work best if you use it as it was used in reality.

Maybe you are not as average as you think?

The Panther-chassis mediums are pretty solid, that's all good...

 

But I can't for the life of me understand how I managed such high winrates in these Czech tanks...? The infamous TVP VTU being one of them.

 

Edit: or the 40TP either!

A good point, but I think even a Panther could in many cases manage 10 or 15 minutes of combat without needing repairs.

Until it goes over a ridge and spill fuel over the exhaust manifold! :)

 

Seriously though, all three are very good tanks. I enjoyed playing the VKM, very responsive gun and good pentration. The Panther M10 also got a very good gun for a tier 7 medium.

I had a mirrored experience with those. 40TP and TVP VTU could not evne carry as top tier. And stock it really reflected that. The T-34-100 was not as terrible vs the other two. And I had some good carries in them "on losses". But I still could not crawl out with a 50% on even that in the end.

You should get yourself the Panther M10, I bet you will love it.

I'm not so sure about the M10.  It has the same gun and armour as the tier 6 Panthers and it has +1 pmm, but even so it's tier 7.  So it's okay up to a point but my experience has been that it sees a lot more tier 8 enemies, where it struggles, has to fire a lot more gold ammo, and of course never sees easy meat tier 4 targets.  Okay as a trainer.

Need to increase alcohol intake to counteract the tendency to improve with practice.

Interesting comments here. I definitely think that the vk 32.01(M) is a very decent tank and have fond memories of it. I also like my Pudel. I didn't bother buying the Bretange as I had the Pudel. I own the Warcrimes M10 which I also really enjoy.

 

But the Panther at tier VII I'm not that keen on, and the Panther II at tier VIII I recall as a below average experience. I kept the tier IX e50 and I have the tier X e50M both of which I like in randoms where their utility is usefull. The e50M is useless in organised games however.

 

It seems to me that the tier VI, IX and X are decent in that line, the VII is sub par, and the VIII is the free experience option.

 

Oh and Bulldog, either your improving or the volume of blood in your alcohol has got to high. Your genius level IQ was never in doubt.

40TP is OP - I have 61.5%WR on 65 games in it

 

Pudel also very OP - I have 100% WR in it - but then I have only played 1 game in it :trollface:
