So I'm almost done with the Excalibur-missions, but I still have the 15th Murica/UK/Poland-mission left - getting five 1st Class Master Tanker  (and Ace Tanker) and I'm just not getting anywhere. I am trying with the Pudel (at 69,83%), the AT8, the T69 and Cent 1 but still not close. At least not when I'm trying.

 

As said - which ones are the easiest tier VI+ tanks to at least getting the 1st Class Master Tanker ?

What he said.

 

1st Class Master Tanker gets you a mission requirement fulfilled. Ace Tanker is required for Honours.

 

You don't need Honours to get the tank, but it gets Orders to use against difficult objectives.

Aha, I see. Thats kinda embarrasing :hiding: 

 

 I'm running the game in Swedish so it ain't that easy to just figure out what "Förtjänsttecken Klass I" really means "in the game" not beeing able to google it.

Well still then - which are the easiest US/UK/PL tonks to get the 1st Class Master Tanker ?

This. Regarding the actual thread, honestly I picked the ChurchillGC. You just need to get what would be an average game for other tanks to Ace it, though obviously having a "good game" in the tank is a challenge itself. :teethhappy:

Comet is what i used, i got 3 ace's in the space of 9 games, just remember ace's is based on XP, so you need damage/assist and kills.

Best way to choose which tank is the best for the mission is to go to wotreplays.com, check ace tanker filter, check us/uk/pl filter and sort replays ascending so you can see tanks with lowest exp requirements. Ignore arties and tds because they are very situational and tricky to ace. On top of the head, I would recommend: T32 ( decent tank if you could work around low penetration) Centurion 1 ( underrated hulldown medium beast) or M41 Bulldog/ T71 cmd ( good light tanks with low exp requirement for ace tanker).

Jeeez - not sure if Im gonna try out that stinker :teethhappy:  I have gone trough the Churchell-line and just utterly hated every single one of them - not sure if i wanna torture myself again... But I guess that one is pretty easy to ace?

The worse the tank and the less its played the easier it will be to ace it. So yeah, Churchill G is a decent tank to choose if you're into self abuse.

It really would be great if there was a record of how many times you had Aced a tank. I know that there are some I've only recently Aced after hundreds of battles. Somehow, I managed the Tiger II in less than ten while still needing upgrades. :teethhappy:

 

I am Acing the M15/42 all of the time and had three battles in a row with 8/6/6 kills. A number of my favourite vehicles have still NEVER been Aced. The most battles I have in a tank without Ace is 550 in the IS-3! :amazed:
 

I have been trying the Achilles to achieve the Honours part. The main problem with this vehicle is the gun depression, but the 17 pdr is a powerful weapon. It's not popular, but played well it is effective. I have an Ace with top on damage of BOTH teams in a tier VIII battle. Damage was 2183 HP, but I think that the difference was that I probably spotted a lot of it myself on Himmelsdorf. I had 578 HP assist as well and four kills. Base XP in this battle was a really great 1273 HP

 

Most of the damage was to tier VI as well, and three of the kills were tier VI and one was tier VII, so it wasn't smashing all of the tier VIIIs that won the XP.

Is that actually the case though?  If a tank doesn't get played much it only takes a few of those people who insist on aceing and marking everything to push up it's averages.  Aren't you better playing a popular noob magnet?

 

I chose the M12 but then got it in something else,  forget what.

I would recommend T21 , its mobile enough, and 1st Class/Ace tanker does not rely solely on doing dmg, so you could do it also with 4-5k spotting dmg.

 

Maybe another solution would be Super Hellcat , i see a lot of ppl playing it over aggresive, because the mobility gives them false idea of being makeshift scouts. You could use that to have a good game with , i would say 50%/50% AP/APCR , food, and rammer directive, and wait for a good open map to happen, where you  can kite if needed.

I know several people who used the T32 for getting multiple aces in X games for the 279e missions so would recommend that with a healthy dose of APCR, use optics for that extra spotting XP and also go for kills. 

 

It's a tank that if you know what you are doing is really not as bad as it's reputation and has potential in pretty much any MM situation due to it's amazing turret, gun depression, good view range and decent enough mobility/gun.

I used the CGC too. 4 shots is usually a 1st class. 5 or more is an Ace if you hit +2. And that's not tricky on most maps on the 2nd line.

Take something that lots and lots of people like to play but fail at it. If you pick a tank that only two people play and one of them is unicum you will have tough time. At tier VI I would try M6, and maybe Cromwell, CGC is also good choice but it is a pain. At tier VII i would probably go for T20 or Comet. While at tier VIII you have ton of options, people like to play premium tanks and lots of them fail miserably at it.

Just ignore me. Missed the "too" and thought someone was getting very lucky in the tier X SPG. :facepalm:

Dear God. I had what was- for me- an exceptional game in the CGC the other day and only managed 2nd Class. Good crew as well, trained up through the entire line.

Looks like some players have adapated... dang it.. I am on the same mission.

 

CGC was my first choice might now need to rethink

Maybe it was just about shooting other people's spots.

If you spot your targets yourself, you get all the XP for that.

But if someone else spots for you, you split the XP with the spotters.

In other words, you might have gotten double the XP had you spotted your own targets.

Might have been enough for an Ace badge, who knows?
