Maus is loverly!

But u have to angle it correctly... 

Unicums in certain tanks like the 50B will murder you tho...

Correctly angled I have bounced JP E100 rounds with it well tho...

Maus is great!

Might I suggest switching from whiskey to schnaps while playing German Heavies?

Maybe it'll help. :girl:

You never know.  But in my experience schnapps is pretty disgusting stuff.  A drink for old ladies.

Try an Asbach Uralt.

Should taste much better.

Wait ... now is beyod your competence? In the other topic you wrote that was such an easy tank.

See? When you actually play a tank instead of read the bullsheep that people write on the forums you can more clearly understand it's various pros, but more importantly the cons. A couple of outdated shots and one video don't make it an autowin... A swallow does not make summer.

Why did you buy the Ballbreaker....Surely you'd have been better served by FXPing the VK100?

I don't seem to be having much luck with 131 myself, but I find it far more enjoyable than the tier 7 tigers to play, that's for sure!

 

Apple schnapps is quite nice :)

Schnapps is not bad but if you want a real drink switch to Stroh rum it is guaranteed not to put hairs on your chest but will strip them clean off :)

I remember being on Grenada some years ago and visiting the ramshackle distillery in the country where they made Jack Iron rum (70%).  The party trick was to put some ice in it, which sank, astonishingly, to the bottom of the glass.

Surprisingly smooth drinking, and although the 70% sounds scary it doesn't make you drunk unless you make the mistake of drinking water with it, as the body is very slow to absorb that concentrated alcohol.

I believe that's the trick if you want to get drunk - don't go "neaters", get a mixer in your drinks as the stomach allows the weaker concentration of alcohol through at a higher rate than the undiluted!

Sinking ice though? I've only seen frozen vinegar do that, pretty fun to watch I bet :)

Stroh, that's a blast from the past.  Strong stuff that.

I always put that in my hot chocolate milk. It's great on a chilly evening! :great:

Now I'm picturing a bartender putting frozen vinegar cubes in the drinks of customers he doesn't like... :D

Germans like flat and mostly vertical armor, sadly, so does APCR and HEAT.

WG will argue German tanks are slab sided via design but that's mostly due to German tank design ending abruptly at the end of WW2 whereas everyone else in game has numerous post war designs with dome turrets.

I have a surprisingly high win rate with the VK 100 P, although I levelled it on Frontline. It was my go to tank for the initial caps. The stock gun is very good for tier 8 fights.
