Here I have all these wonderful tanks, fully upgraded, Obj. 430 brothers, Standard B, Leopard so many amazing tanks I can just go on and on and the crews are also great and yet here I am grinding a completely stock tier 8 medium and God forbid I should have a sub par tank that any of the other 14 teammates I get with fully upgraded tanks and higher tier tanks should be able to win a battle without me having to add 3k dmg to the mix lol! I'm sick right? It's an illness to have so many great tanks and still do this to myself. Well, the answer is yes, I must be sick, the question was rhetorical and you know something... I think I love it ahaha! Hard mode or go to bed there is no other way for me and the worse teammates the better I like it, more dmg for me to farm then even if I can't see or pen anyone it doesn't matter.

The more important question in my opinion is: Why are you grinding a tier 8 in randoms when there is FL available? :)

I can recommend reading 'Story of O' by Pauline Reage, which will give considerable personal insight.

 

Ill wait for the film instead ;)

Look at it this way, once you get the top gun you have 330 HEAT on a T8 tank. :trollface:

 

Also, why tf do you have a manual fire extinguisher. :facepalm:

This is an excellent point

 

There are certain precautions— though none of them very reliable—
Against the blast from bombs and the flying splinter,
But not against the blast from heaven, vento dei venti,
The wind within a wind unable to speak for wind;
And the frigid burnings of purgatory will not be touched
By any emollient.
                                     I think you will find this put,
Better than I could ever hope to express it,
In the words of Kharma: "It is, we believe,
Idle to hope that the simple stirrup-pump
Will extinguish hell."

Should I put binoculars on my other tier 8 medium tanks?

Why this way and why not that way? This answer is above and it's simple, I'm mentally ill. Why manual fire extinguisher? Because I don't run food :P, why binos? Because I cannot mount anything else with stock tracks so even with optics is a big blind pile of dog do. No, it's fine, all under control, no pain no gain, I can make this stock upside down frying pan turret tank that doesn't turn all the way around and has no gun depression work and I can bring down tier 9 and 10 tanks all with no vents or vstabs. 

 

First battle with the top gun

 

 

All under control, nothing to worry about here. I will shoot just nothing but HE now to make it harder since it's too easy and look, not even 1 gold ammo shot since I'm looking for the hardest version possible. Maybe I should go back to stock gun it's just not the same without it, too easy actually. Chieftain? You got nothing on this frying pan so watch it!

No, what I meant is why would you use manual over auto. An auto extinguisher also lowers the chance to get set on fire, thus making fires less common, and overall auto extinguishers rarely get used, and you get them left and right from completing missions... Selling them and using manual extinguishers is just silly.

I never used auto fire extinguisher. The premium time I have is mostly won with missions, what you see on screen is 2 days for some light tank mission I don't even know what or why lol. I collect and sell the fancy consumables and always played with the manual type. Then again I changed my keyboard options so how I control my tank and make thing work and see on screen is not the same as you. my sniper mode scroll rate is almost glacial as to keep soft stats at bay for any unwanted "fast movement" since I dont want fast and as 3rd person the scroll rate is fast since I want it like that. For the manual extinguisher... default for most players is 1 AP 2 Premium 3 HE 4 repairs 5 medi 6 extinguisher but its not always like this for me and for a long long time I have played manual extinguisher with the "E" key and also played configurations of "A" as forward and "D" as reverse with "W" turn right and "S" turn left since peaking and reversing and turning is inefficient with the default to do it as fast as I would like would have either turn keyboard longitudinal or break my wrist lol but I didn't adapt to the alternative more efficient configuration and direction is back as standard but the "E" key for extinguisher is a long long time and E is very user friendly to tap when set on fire just next to the W key so never a mistake or never a wrong press for something else and my reaction speed is good I go at the b in bang.

Ah yes I see now why I get the premium time, it was for some light tank mission with honors so 2 days even though a 3rd for something I cant remember. Just some battles between the suffering when I died fast and had the time lol!

 

 

and 2 days for some medium tank mission the other day they take care of themselves sometimes I look a them when things are slow and then I see that they are arty missions and no wonder why nothing much is happening its hard to do arty block mission when you are not playing arty.

 

 

The premium time seemed to go sooner than I expected though, like 12hrs too soon, either I was swindled by WG or tinfoil hat time

omg... 15-0 and about 3 minute battle ahaha! bring it on! 

 

 

I'm nearly there just the turret to go and tracks. Someone asked why not grind in FL. Here's the thing about that and correct me if I'm wrong. FL imo, might be wrong, does not work for grinding and here's why. Ok I can say my strat for FL is clueless to optimize xp potential, hands up, no clue, fine. So from my ignorant FL point of view here's what happens. I play my sh*tty stock T8 tanks in a food gold and best T8 tanks environment and a bad tank is a bad tank. Bad= bad xp so my cra*py stock tank dies and I cannot play it for a while thus it hasn't done a whole lot thus its xp gains are going to be bad. In the meantime I select a Pantera or something, fully upgraded and an excellent tank, I am NOT dying and I am doing lots of damage, all the while this is time I am NOT playing the Obj something or other frying pan tank and thus NOT making inroads in the grind... the Pantera gets most all the xp... I can reel off lots of random battles with just the frying pan, so over the invested time randoms is better no?

not using food in an Obj.416 is offensive.

not using auto. ext. in an Obj.416 is also offensive.

not using the top gun in an Obj.416 and not spamming  using HEAT in an Obj.416 is also extremely offensive.

not believing in yourself is the biggest sin of all, and is also quite offensive.

 

So rejoice! The K-91 is a real gem, although... ever since Leopard 1 got buffed, they might be kind of even: Leo can trade, but K-91 has the best MT DPM and the fastest APCR shells in the game, and extreme gun handling, and unlike most rasha tanks, has actually good gun depression, although to use it, one needs to position themselves by facing with the turret upwards or downwards, depending on situation.

I think we all can appreciate this post. It's frankly worth checking out. Hopefully, you will, indeed, check (it) out.

 

Best,

Viktor.
