So I'm on my 8th or 9th fire this week (3 just today) after going at least a few months with maybe one fire.

 

Is it only me or has anyone else noticed that fires seem to come in waves?

 

(not interested in hearing about observer bias or any of that psycho-babble from amateur psychologists - I'm happy with any tin foil hat ideas thrown into the ring!) 

 

(I just put on an automatic fire extinguisher and got ammo racked from full health instead - you couldn't make this sh1t up)!

Auto fire extinguisher, or fire extinguisher directive. There you go.

Read my edit. But who wants to run Auto fire extinguishers on everything for a week or more...…. or forever

 

Used a fire extinguisher directive in some games until l I burnt when I had one - didn't even know that could happen!

Waves? It depends on what I play. If I suddenly go Chinese HT's again. They come back instantly after weeks of grinding something else.

Generally just good players, who've worked out how cost effective they are over the long run. Then when you get to be a really good player with good crews, you just drop the AFE's totally and use directives.

 

I do enjoy watching the speshul players who don't use AFE's burn myself. Really good to meet one when you're close to a MOE.

I think we should run a poll and see how many 'good' players run AFEs or Firefighting Directives all the time on all their tanks!

 

If I had known that is all it would take to 'git gud' I would have started doing it years ago!

I use them all the time and can't remember the last time I had to buy one they get used so rarely and given away so often.  In fact I sold 50 or so the other day to get some extra credits and still have 500 in stock.

Apparently I have 999 Automatic Fire Extinguishers and 846 manual ones in stock. Plus 483 Firefighting Directives.....  Maybe I should start using them....

It's why I only use a premium account, a manual extinguisher, and the other 2 cheap consumables for repairs and crew

 

The game burns you for credits sometimes, RNG decides!

 

So if I'm in a crap game and I catch fire... I let it burn

In a good game I press 6 for my extinguisher

 

Don't let it control you, you control it

I have an automatic fire extinguisher on every tank in the garage, got 400 and some in stock and I have never bought one in my life, you get so many given to you free so why not use them?

There seems to be a common theme here.... Maybe I missed this massive hint from WG!

AFE it's the way to go and as a bonus you can get them at 50% off in the sales..... Oh wait there doesn't seem to be any more good sales on consumables:(

Well... my fires come in waves because I play my Soviet mediums and lights in waves... does that count?
