After unlocking the T100LT, the Obj. 257 and the IS7 in the last few days, i decided not only start grinding my Sweish Mediums, but also go up the British medium line.

Still sitting at the Cromwell, but now only 10k XP away from the Comet.

 

And, i am happy to announce that i just had my 4th Ace tanker ever, and this time it wasn't a Premium tank!

Apart from the T-29, Thunderbolt and the King Tiger, my Cromwell joined the ranks of the rare tanks that achieved ACE status (on my account...sigh).

 

Even nobody might care, i am still proud and happy! :medal:

Thx!

I really had to restrain myself in that game (me being way too aggressive in my playstyle).

Great job! Keep aiming to ace those tanks, some times it will feel frustrating but it forces an attitude to try and learn the tank's strengths

Good job!

 

Hope you enjoy Comet, it's a nice tank but still could be a bit of a disappointment after Cromwell.

Just wanna let you know though, you should be proud for managing to ace those premiums since they are most often harder to ace than a normal tech tree tank since there's no "worse stock version" and all that.
Anyway, congrats on acing that tank, now you've aced just as many as me.

Off you go now and ace your fifth one!

Have fun!

Thx mate, learning the strengths of my tanks is one of the major goals for this year.

Well, as it turned out, it is a tiny bit of disappointing, as it trades awesome mobility for slightly better gun handling.

I need to get used to it, but at least it's now fully upgraded.

Stock was terrible, compared to Cromwell, almost as mobile as a Mauerbrecher/ Mutant.

 

Also, the crew is still at around 40-50% in their first skills (sixth sense, asf) so it's mostly me waiting get derped in the face before i know i'm spotted... :confused:

Yeah, i heard that, but tbh, i'm growing a bit tired of premium tanks.

Worst part is, i need millions of credits and the only way to get them for me are...premium tanks.

At least i have a one or two... :D

Yeah, the premium mission that gives 25 upon completeion is awesome.

I think it's too early for me to think about acing tanks on a regular basis, with me just barely averging 50%WR atm, although i would love to ace the Lansen C...

 

 

Thx guys!

 

Any pro-tips on how to play the Comet properly?

Is it just a more sluggish Cromwell, which loves concealment and ridges? Or is there more to it?

I tried the 'drive-by' shooting when an enemy tank was brawling with one of mine, but the Cromwell was soooo much better at it then the Comet.

First of, congrats with the Ace Tanker badges. I am on 111 of them and still every time I get a new one it feels just great and I just have to make a screenshot of the results.  I just checked and I got my Comet Ace Tanker in february 2018 with about 3.5 K combined damage, 3 kills in a tier 9 match up.

 

The more Ace Tanker badges you get, you also tend to get a feeling for when you are close to get one in the battle.

 

As for play tips for the Comet. Stay second line, find ridges, peak, spot and in general terms preserve your HP, keep the dpm going when they are not looking your way.. Keeping them in place by continuously tracking heavier enemies is also a strategy to use. Brawling not so much. You are indeed too slow for that, have no armor and no alpha.. so any other "fatter" tank will just annihilate you.

 

PS. One other word of advice. Stop buying premium tanks.. you have enough to last a life time.. ;-)

Nice work there, buddy!

 

It's about a year since I got my latest Ace tanker badge (Panther) and it was my 7th over all so I know the feeling not getting them in regular basis.

 

 

EDIT: Jesus that garage full of Special Tanks®
