I’ve been enjoying two specials available for World of Tanks :
- Golden Joystick voting drive. This is giving us a 3x boost instead of 2x for the days first victory.
- American tech tree focus, giving a big credit boost for my T29. I love the T29.
Now, I’m really hoping World of Tanks manages to capture the Golden Joystick award. If that happens, Tier 9 TD’s will cost the same as Tier 8 TD’s – a million credit savings. Finally it’ll be time to buy the Jagdtiger.
That’s not all – you’ll get 5x bonuses and 50% discounts on garage slots, equipment, and training. So if you’re reading this and you haven’t voted – go here and vote, please.
I am working up two lines towards unlocking other Tier 9’s, but its unlikely that I’ll manage to do so in time; the 4502A still needs 54k to unlock the 4502B. It’s possible, but unlikely.
And the KV-4…….My last battle in this stupid thing, I could see our side was losing badly, I was a very low tank, and I sure did not want to pay the repair bill. So I just suicided into a lake. Much, much lower repair bill. Never thought I’d do that but the thing is very painful.
Driving the KV-4 is only fun if I’m the top tank at this point. Getting close to unlocking the engine upgrade; and my crew is about 200xp away from being 100% primary. Win rate dropped to 35%, and I’m not surprised. I have managed to get five steel walls with this tank however. That’s my role. Get shot at, and bounce the shots.
I’m not really enjoying the VK3002DB, however. I see what they mean now, about this being a very average tank – it doesn’t excel at anything. I’ve decided since the number is so low (20k) I’m just going to unlock the Panther first and see how I feel about continuing to drive the thing, and get the rest of the upgrades. 11k to go.
My KV-2, oh how I love this thing. I get these constant reaper streaks – killing an enemy with one shot. This week I bested my performance by one, making it a 9-kill streak. I even had a 12-game win streak which is always fun. I’ll be driving this for the forseeable future, as I need to generate the credits and it’s simply fun.
